  • Buyers Brokers Only LLC
    Jeff Goodwin is my idea of the perfect buyer's agent--incredibly knowledgeable, highly responsive, and the epitome of a professional. I was trying to quickly find and purchase a condo in Worcester by long distance (Texas to Massachusetts) and Jeff made it all work more smoothly than I imagined possible. He listened carefully to my search criteria, matched that with plausible properties, provided insightful commentary on neighborhoods and other important factors, and even dealt quickly and sanely with one super-challenging seller. I was only in town for 24 hours, but Jeff managed to get me through the whole process of seeing properties, getting an offer accepted, arranging inspections, hiring a real estate lawyer, and getting all necessary documents signed in that short time. Eighteen days later, I have just closed on an ideal condo and Jeff was invaluable throughout the whole process.

  • David Lukan - Sotheby's International Realty
    We met David through a mutual friend who was looking for a home and had recommended him to us. We could not be happier with our experience. David showed us several houses over the course of about a month, contacted the seller's agent on our behalf when we found a house to buy, made suggestions re offers and counter-offers for us, informed us about contingencies and when to release them, introduced us to inspectors, helped keep the seller's feet to the fire on things like imperfections in the interior paint, a new handrail for the rear stairs, and several other small things that we were way too pre-occupied to think about. David is not only our realtor, he became our friend. We bought our house just over a year ago (September 2016) and just a couple days ago David stopped by on Christmas Eve to visit us and wish us a happy holiday. David is knowledgable, approachable, attentive, kind, and a great advocate to have throughout the home-buying process. We were lucky to have him on our side and we recommend him to all of our friends.

  • Remax 360 Realty
    Dawn is a fantastic real estate agent. What I most appreciated was that there was no bs -- she knew what I cared about and what I didn't care about, and didn't try to sell me on things that I wouldn't care about. She was very patient with all our questions as first-time homebuyers, and was very accommodating. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking to buy a home in the Pittsburgh area.
