“Karen was super...  Helped us resettle in Philly when we decided to relocate to be near our daughter. She knew every area, all the local gossip, etc, and helped us not make a big mistake by tipping us off that a nice bldg we were looking at might have its view obstructed by a high rise across the street in negotiation for the land.   (AND IT CAME TO PASS A YEAR LATER!).   We thought we knew what we wanted but after a few showings, Karen knew what we really needed and directed us to something, not on our radar where we eventually settled.  A few hiccups with of course a difficult seller but Karen ran all the interference for us and probably saved us a substantial amount of money. I was also impressed by how organized she was.  We were not local to Philly and traveled there several times for showings...  She invested the time to prep and had showing orchestrated by the hour with no downtime. Could not give a higher endorsement.” Read More ▾

“Purchasing a home during the pandemic was not an easy task. My stresses were high, as I was a first-time buyer and felt very new to the process. Karen was very professional as well as personal. She was extremely quick to respond to my questions and concerns along the way. She negotiated and worked hard to make sure things like repairs were fair. Karen is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.” Read More ▾

“I moved from Philadelphia to Georgia in September of 2021. My real estate agent at the time seemed more interested in leasing my property more quickly than selling it, and indeed that is what I had to do as I had no offers, and I couldn't maintain two properties. A resident/friend in my building recommended Naomi. First of all, Naomi is a delightful person and a pleasure to work with. She called to introduce herself and told me emphatically that she would sell my condo and I was certain that she would We agreed to touch base in 2023 at a time when she would determine what was best to list my property under the most favorable market conditions. She listed my place in the Spring of 2023. Naomi's marketing and enthusiastic selling skills generated a lot of interest from potential buyers. Within a month my one-bedroom condo on Letitia St. was under contract with another offer in reserve. I was impressed by how well Naomi managed the selling process and the myriad of resulting paperwork. With me being in Georgia, Naomi executed the sale electronically and it was seamless. I was not always good at keeping up with all the docs I needed to sign, so every once in a while I would receive a very friendly reminder from Naomi which helped keep me on track. Throughout the entire selling process, I never needed to go to Philadelphia not once. Naomi managed everything even by representing me at closing. Naomi's experience, professionalism, and determination instilled in me the utmost confidence in her. In the fall of 2021, Naomi told me that she would sell my property at the right time in 2023, and that's what she did. If you are looking for someone to sell your home or buy for that matter. I fully-throated and wholeheartedly recommend Naomi Kurzyna. If you want peace of mind during what is often a very stressful process, I recommend Naomi Kurzyna.” Read More ▾

“We really lucked out when a friend recommended Melissa Valenti as a top realtor in center city Philadelphia, where we were looking to buy a condo. Melissa is… extremely professional, amazingly knowledgeable, reliable, and totally delightful. We faced two hurdles: Covid 19 and a very specific limited market. Through her personal contacts and relationships, as well as her in-depth knowledge of the market, Melissa found not only our dream abode in the sky at the perfect location for us, but also a condo that was still off market. Imagine being spared of the stress to have to compete with multiple bids in a very tough sellers market! Melissa's creative skills at guiding the process through a pandemics were invaluable for both us and the sellers. Within a few hours of the approval of the state authorities to resume property visitation, Melissa had secured a visit of the condo, while assuring a COVID protocol for everybody's safety. Moreover, she is a limitless source of information on everything connected with housing, from painters, plumbers, to handymen or carpets, refrigerators, or washing machines... She understands your taste and your needs. As an older couple , who had not bought real estate in over 30 years, Melissa was the answer to our prayers. She made the process easy, smooth, confortable, and yes, even pleasant. We felt that we were in good, steady, and caring hands from start to finish. We really lucked out! Thank you, thank you, Melissa!” Read More ▾

“We interviewed three realtors in Center City Philadelphia that were all experienced, highly recommended and familiar with the local Center City market. Melissa actually recommended the highest list price with the least amount of up front work based on the local market conditions. We were suspicious that she might be encouraging a high list price to gain the listing, but she seemed very knowledgeable about Center City conditions and her marketing plan was very sound. Our open house was a resounding success, and we received four offers within 48 hours of listing on the MLS; our home ultimately sold over the asking price. Throughout the process, Melissa was responsive and professional. I'll also mention that she's just an incredibly nice person! We couldn't be happier with our experience, and highly recommend Melissa.” Read More ▾
