What my clients are saying  

"Mike is a pro, he put his real life experience as an investor to work for me and I made a tidy profit. Mike thinks like an investor and a gentleman, not a realtor which worked great for me."

 

~ Jeff from Bellmore

"I had dealt with other real estate agents over the years that I felt took advantage of my ignorance, Tom educated me. He provided me with top notch service in the sale of my home. I would never work with another real estate agent; take my word for it you will not get better service."

 

~ Mike from Merrick

"Tommy treated me like a gentleman and the whole home buying process became painless."

 

~ Frank from Sound Beach

"We had to wait several months to work with Tom because we signed an exclusive agreement (never again) with another realtor who was terrible. Once that expired we shopped around and found Tom through a friend; this was the best decision we could ever make. He not only doesn't use exclusive buyer agreements but he was able to put us in touch with some mortgage professionals who helped us improve our credit so we could buy a home. You can't go wrong with Tom."

 

~ Violet from Bay Shore

"Victoria was very pleasant and responsive to us. As older homeowners we didn't want a realtor who might take advantage of us. Victoria was honest and patient with us the whole time. We highly recommend Victoria."

 

~ Jane from Commack

"Victoria showed me a lot of houses, she was very patient and taught me a lot about the process. I definately recommend Victoria."

 

~ Diandra from Selden

"Mike thinks of angles other realtors can't even understand. He uncovers value where others see nothing. He seems to have a natural talent for unearthing hidden gems. I could go on, but basically he amazes me in a very profitable way."

 

~ Allan from Flushing
