Gave his reasons for certain things and clearly justified his reasonings. We built the house 38 years ago and it was a bittersweet, emotional time for us. We were downsizing, moving DE to be close to our daughter and grandkids. And being elderly, wanted to relieve ourselves of the physical challenges a huge property requires. But this house was our years of hard work, planning with so many memories. Sam was so understanding about how we felt and that certainly eased things. He is an all around good guy.
Can't wait to do our next deal with him.
We came out well over asking with multiple offers in a matter of days. Sam’s counsel and support throughout the whole process was extremely helpful. We are so happy with the outcome and can’t recommend him high enough.
He's very knowledgeable and gives solid advice. If I were to criticize anything, I think he underestimated the strength of the seller's market a bit when we listed our house, but we ended up with a great deal anyway.
My wife and I have bought many properties over the years, I would state he was one of best realtors we’ve worked with. My only issue was that I preferred my attorney to conduct the research and transfer of the property. I believe this was overlooked by your company as we ended up having a different settlement company handle the transaction.
He answered every question in a timely fashion and even more importantly if he didn't know the answer immediately he got you the answer quickly. Worked very hard on getting us good contact people for inspections etc. Also this was not a high priced sale but I felt Sam gave our purchase as much attention as he would give a million dollar purchase which was fantastic!
From the first time he visited my home to settlement, he was always very professional, and answered all my questions and texts promptly. Several weeks after closing I had a problem with my mortgage company. I called Sam, and he helped me to solve that problem efficiently and promptly! Thanks Sam, you helped make my move out of state so much less stressful!
His knowledge of the area as well as his commitment to answer any and all questions was fantastic. He was available 24/7 and could not have been better in anyway. He was remarkable!! Paul
I know other realtors including family and friends and would never use anyone other than him. He is on top of the sale or purchase from beginning to end. In the case of selling this property the home did not appraise and the purchase price offered. Sam quickly got in touch with two previous bidders as well as the current buyer and got her to use some cash so we could complete the closing in the needed time frame and to the satisfaction of both myself and the buyer. A win/win which is what I have become accustom to when dealing with Sam.
He spends time to understand your goals and objectives. He aligns his recommendations and plan to meet your goals. He is much more than a sales associate. He is a top-notch consultant who partners with you to sell your home while introducing reality checks into the process. Specifically, he guides you through the process to insure your goals are realistic and achievable.
I would highly recommend him to anyone I know that is in need of a realtor.
Sam worked with us for years - from beginning to end of selling our home and finding our next dream home. Sam was kind and patient, thorough and detailed, and the absolutely most trusting and helpful agent we could ever hope for. He listened to us about our needs and wants and, in addition to being an excellent communicator, he was available at the drop of a hat to support us, show us a home or answer our unlimited questions. Sam is well respected among his peers, has an inordinate amount of contacts, and never once wavered in successfully completing this real estate transaction. I will always use Sam - and recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
His due diligence prevented a catastrophe at settlement and his expertise got the top dollar amount for the house. I would recommend Sam to anyone in Berks county looking to buy or sell a house.
He was always available for a quick question or chat, and was a pro navigating the ins and outs of this wild market. We are lucky to have worked with Sam, and couldn’t recommend him higher enough to others.
Very quick to respond to our needs. Thanks Sam and staff!!
He made the process so much easier and less stressful and gave us phenomenal client service throughout. He knows the market and region, he knows negotiation, he knows everything you need an agent to know. He conducts himself professionally and with the highest amount of integrity and judgment in every circumstance. We are lifelong clients because of all of the above. And the support from Remax of Reading we received was similarly phenomenal. It is a first class operation. Would never think of using a different agent or company. Thank you for two fantastic transactions.
We ultimately landed at 100 Park and can thank Sam for helping us find a great temporary living arrangement while we settled into the region. Half a year later, Sam helped us purchase our first home in Wyomissing. The process could not have gone more smoothly. Since then he has given us hours of his time -- we've often reached out to him for advice on questions related to home renovation projects, potential home purchases, general market conditions, and other real estate-related questions. He always has informed answers and draws upon his extensive experience in making judgment calls. Not only is he personable and friendly, he is a trusted advisor and someone you can really look to when you have tough questions. His knowledge of the Berks County real estate market is second to none. We could not be more grateful to have been referred to Sam -- he has had a tremendous impact on our life in Berks County, one with which we are extremely happy. Thanks, Sam!
Hard to put into words just how happy we are with how the sale of our home went and how easy Sam made it for us. I want to highlight two things that Sam did better than anyone I could imagine to make the process smoother and less stressful than it could have been. Sam is always available for his clients. If you need to talk to him and he doesn't answer his phone its because he can't and he will text you within 3 minutes to tell you when he's free. As a client that is huge - knowing that I can talk to my agent when I feel like I need to is invaluable. We spoke Sunday mornings, late Friday nights, early weekday mornings - Sam is always available for his clients. You can't say enough about how valuable that is. Second, Sam let us drive, but was there to grab the wheel if he needed to. He puts the seller in control and does not dictate to them what he thinks - whether it be about price, negotiation, etc etc. But, when you need his advice, or when you start swerving off the road, to continue the metaphor, he is there to bring you back between the lines. He's a pro in that regard. That speaks to both his knowledge of the business and his understanding of people. Thank you Sam and Remax of Reading team - we really feel like we could not have gotten a better result on the same of our home and its because of the hard work of Sam and the team. We are grateful.
