My experience with Phil and Ariana was second to none in both selling my former home and buying my new one. Having been part of a dozen or so real estate transactions previously, I've yet to receive this level of attention and care. Either Phil and/or Ariana would always my call, text, email, etc...Being as inquisitive as I am, that's no small feat. I would definitely do business with them again and highly recommend them for any real estate need that someone might have. - Joseph L.
Beyond my expectations. They were wonderful. - Linda A.
Wonderful people to work with. I was having some medical issues during the time they were showing my place, as well as other things going on and they were so very compassionate about working around my schedule. The nicest people you'd ever want to meet and very professional. - Jennifer
It was our real pleasure working with them both. Very professional and trustworthy. - Lance
Phil and Ariana made an excellent experience out of a sad time for my family and I as we put my brother's condo up for sale after his recent passing. With their skills and know-how, they found us an all-cash buyer in 3 days on the market! The Bersons are professional, communicative, responsive and sensitive to their clients - and would recommend this fantastic team to anyone seeking to list their home or buy another. - Sharon V.
