My son Kenneth left this home to me upon his death after a short battle of stage 4 Cancer.Keisha made a VERY hard decision to sell this home a little easier to go through. My son purchased this house in 1999, he worked long hours to save the money to purchase the home and also worked really hard to keep the home up to his death. This was ideal home for me but due to my age and health I wasn't able to maintain it. Keisha was understanding,kind, and considerate through it all. There were a few hick ups a long the way,but Keisha stuck in there with me to get the sale done. I know I have said this previously but her hard work and passion to get this done means soo much to me and STRONGLY recommend advancing her to ANY level that she is pursing.If she worked this hard for me a stranger, I'm sure she will do an EPICAL job for you with anything you give her. Thank you Keisha Lowe you are 1 in a Million :).
Working with Nick Leon at Century21 exceeded any of my expectations. As a first time homebuyer, I was not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away Nick was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with my partner and I to determine what would be a good fit for us. He even recommended a lending agent in the area, which we ended up using and greatly appreciated. Nick was willing to meet us late in the evening to view our house and put together the offer letter within a couple days of our first meeting. He was very helpful in explaining the entire process and really relieved my stress level even though we were on a very tight timeframe. Even at the eleventh hour pf closing I got to know that I have to pay for the violations and Nick negotiate with Fannie Mae and make the seller pay for the violations. I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in our offer getting accepted. I highly recommend Nick Leon.
Margaret's dedication to her clients is outstanding. She had in-depth knowledge about all questions, concerns, and comments I had. She was just a pleasure to work with. She is always there and responds right away to anything. She make buying a home an easy seamless experience. She also goes out of her way to try to help in any way she can. I was extremely lucky to come across such an experienced professional with class, and grace. Thank You so much. This was my first house I bought and I will never forget this wonderful journey, and the big role Margaret played in it. Words can't describe how grateful I am to Margaret and Century 21. God bless.
My first impression was how quickly she emailed me and followed up by phone calls, so I asked my family to join me at our first meeting.
Margaret came to my home prepared with many listings of similar homes in my neighborhood that were on the market. She spent almost 2 hours answering our questions and schooling us on asking prices and giving us good advice. It was clear she was a knowledgeable professional, however, before I met her in person she proved to be a genuinely helpful person, so at the end of our first meeting, I knew she was the best.
Sonia Thompson is very competent and proficient in what she does, and can be trusted to provide support / guidance throughout the buying/selling process. She is attentive to her clients' needs, versatile, flexible, and adaptable.
I felt extremely relaxed throughout my selling process because nine years earlier, Sonia was my Realtor/Agent when we bought this very house. Of note was the fact that she never lost contact over that period - she was very consistent in reaching out and connecting with us. Her support spelt 'l-o-n-g-e-v-i-t-y'!
Thus, as we prepared to sell, who would we turn to & lean on?
- A dependable, reliable source of professional, yet amicable service as presented in Sonia Thompson.
May God continue to bless her service to others.
She is just outstanding. She is definitely an asset to Century 21. She is a great professional and has an amazing interpersonal skills. It was a pleasure to have her as our agent.
All the staff members of Century 21 are very friendly and provide great customer care service. I will certainly recommend Century 21 to my friends and people who are looking to buy a new house . I had a great experience!
Dorothy has been an amazing agent. I will recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy a new property . She is very friendly and knowledgeable. Keep up the good work Dorothy :)
Sonia Thompson immediately responded to a notification she received from a service I used to identify top realtors in the area, and although I was not immediately ready to sell my home, she periodically checked in to see if she could assist me, and kept in touch until I was ready to put my home on the market.
Sonia was with me for every step of the sale, always made herself available for questions, and was a highly motivated and enthusiastic partner in the sale of my home.
I cannot express how effectively Sonia exceeded all my expectations with her knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate approach to the sale of my childhood home. I will absolutely refer and trust Sonia to assist my friends and family should they ever need a realtor!
I met with 2 brokers. Ms. Lowe came with print-outs of sales price comparisons, which she left with me. Although I am environmentally conscious, I preferred that rather than strictly showing me comparisons on an ipad and leaving me with nothing to review later. She also expressed prior knowledge of having worked with my co-op board and her ability to successfully navigate their procedures. She's a highly detail-oriented professional. Ms. Lowe found me a bona fide buyer within a week of listing the property!
She was an excellent communicator throughout the entire process -- keeping me abreast of progress and following up in a timely manner with me on next steps!
We selected Sonia Thompson to help with the purchase our 1st home because she is the Best! Sonia is a seasoned real estate broker, with vast industry knowledge who treats her clients like family. She provides undivided attention to make sure her clients are 100% satisfied. We could not imagine working with anyone else.
Great relationships and reputation can make all the difference during this process. We hit a major road block during the closing process. Sonia remained calm, went into high gear and made sure all parties were apprised of the situation and the issue was resolved immediately.
We successfully closed and are now home owners, thanks to Sonia Thompson!
Ms. Prince did all that she could for my wife and me to expedite the sale of our house.
The lengthy time between signing of the contract and clearance for closing was due to the buyer's lender taking so long. Though the process was a lengthy one due to conditions beyond our control, my wife and I were able to sell our house in Laurelton, NY as planned due to the tenacity and expertise of our realtor, Ms.Prince.
My wife and I were extremely pleased with how Ms. Prince treated us and worked with us. We found her to be knowledgeable, professional, and respectful. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is a realtor par excellence.
We just purchased a house through Margaret. However, never once during the two month process did we feel that she was merely the seller's agent. To my friends and family, Margaret was also "our" agent. She never once failed to respond to any of my inquiries and anxiety, no matter the time of day. As first time homeowners, you can imagine the number of questions I had! She was always honest and did an excellent job keeping both sides calm, while simultaneously working together to allow the closing to occur efficiently. I give Margaret the highest recommendation to anyone in search of a new home or in need of selling a home. I myself am looking forward to working with her in the future!
Ms Johnson, if it wasn't for you I don't know who would've helped us get through this process as smoothly as you did. Your knowledge your dedication your patience and your professionalism spoke alone for itself. You went above and beyond to ensure that we understood and that we were comfortable with every decision that we made towards
the sale of our property.
I will recommend Ms Johnson over and over and over again.....
If you're looking for someone who will be attentive to your needs and will get that house
Sold then Sonia is the realtor you're looking for...
Thank You Sonia....
Ms. Sheila Prince was extremely professional and courteous to myself and my brother from day one. The property was in very poor condition due to years of neglect, but she assured us that she would get us a fair market price. Also, this was not a case where the property was going to be sold right away due to issues about no will, title ownership, etc. There were many hindrances that we had to get through, and they had nothing to do with Ms. Prince. But like the professional that she is, she let us know that eventually the house would be sold. She kept us informed of all matters, kept her own inventory of all paper work that was needed, telephoned me in New York, telephoned my brother in North Carolina, and saw us through to the closing. She is a real estate broker that deserves all superlatives!
Ms. Sheila Prince took care of all negotiations with the buyer, and we were able to sell the house.
Sonia is the one to select when needing someone that understands the sellers issues.
Sonia is very helpful in staging and managing any appt. for all agents interested. It was necessary for Sonia to appear at every agents viewing due to my security system requirements. She never handed that responsibility over to anyone.
Sonia was very instrumental to moving the sale as quickly as it did. She worked solely for you and the sale of your house.
I would recommend Sonia to anyone I know just because of her standards and special interest in her sellers views and concerns in the sale of the house.
I personally would like to say "Thank You Sonia" "You are the best!"
Love you guys, will be forever thankful to Sonia and century 21 btw we went with century 21 to buy the house because of the awesome experience we had with Sonia.
Well she was bright, intelligent, had a plan from day one.very nice personality.
She was so helpful and made what could have easily been a nightmare go so smoothly, she is awesome and i am so happy it was Sonia who brokered the deal.i recommended her to everyone. I cant thank her enough.
When it comes down to brokers Sonia Thompson is a star, pleasant, professional, i cant say enough about her and because of her i will always use and recommended century 21 to everyone...shes worth her weight in gold.... we thank you Sonia!!
It all went smooth, Sonia is fantastic.
Margaret Gilhooly-Pidala is an asset to Century 21 in every aspect!!
Margaret was overall excellent in ever aspect above!
It was a pleasure working with Margaret..she is very professional & knowledgeable. On our first met I was impressed because she asked me to make a wish list.. upon making my wish listed she made every effort to show me what I wanted. I closed October 2016 and couldn't be more satisfied to this day I can call Margaret with any questions or concerns. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy or sale anytime. Margaret isn't just my broker for life but a friend!
Sonia Johnson is the best real estate broker I ever dealt with. From signing the retainer agreement to the sales, she detailed all information to clearly show the map leading to the sale of my property in Springfield Gardens.
Sonia is a very hard working broker. She planned a lot of events to advance the sale, including but not limited to, multiple open houses, late nights showings, and she even comes out on Sundays.
Sonia Johnson's professionalism and communication skills are her best assets. She makes one feel so comfortable that one might tend to forget it's a business deal. She would work around your schedule to set up viewing times, and debrief you on the result of every viewing.
I didn't interact too much with the other agents. There wasn't any need for it. Sonia covered it all.
I met Sonia as I was driving through the neighborhood looking for an apartment for rent. She noticed me looking at a property she was selling and gave me her card. We had a long conversation and gave me her card along with some great advise. She inspired me to take the steps needed to own my 1st home. A year later when I was ready to look for my 1st home, my mortgage company tried to get me to use their realtors. I declined and went back to Sonia. I liked her personality and she gave me really great advise. I was confident that she would be the one to find me my dream home. And she did!!!
Sonia is great and I will definitely be referring her.
Ms. Viola has a pleasant and pleasing personality. Is people friendly and a no nonsense person in handling tasks and responsibilities.
Ms. Viola kept us up to date with the process and progress of the sale.
It is very commendable, displays professionalism and a friendly communicating link.
The experience was 'one worth talking about' though brief. Ms. Viola became a family member and provided assistance when/where needed. We were happy to have her and
commend her for her encouragement and support in the sale of our house.
Ms. Viola is trustworthy, dependable and an asset to anyone who she comes in contact with.
Wendy did a fantastic job! I cannot tell you how thankful I was to have had her selling my house. She was considerate of my time, always returns calls, text, emails and made sure I was informed as to where the process was and how it was moving along. She always stayed in communication with me whether I called her or not. She was simply professional.
She is such a wonderful person to work with, she is always looking into what is the best interest for her clients. I was very lucky to have her there when I decided to sell, timing is everything in life and Wendy just came into my life at the time I needed someone honest that I could trust to get my house sold in a timely matter and at a good price ($30K above asking)! She took the job and immediately went to work and it paid off.
When Sonia contacted me, I knew just by talking to her that I'm in good hands. She was knowledgeable, understood my needs and she was very professional. These attributes put me at rest from the beginning and I knew that I would be taken care in the right way. I needed an agent like Sonia since this is my first time purchasing a home.
I am very satisfied with Sonia's performance. She went above and beyond to help me.
I will be definitely recommending her as an agent of Century 21 to my family and friends.
Sonia's great personality was a plus. She made my home purchase a great experience that I will never forget.
We found Mr. Reid through trulia.com. My daughter saw a property with his name on it. We called him, gave him the specifics of what we wanted and within an hour he found our new home. What my family and I loved about him was that we told him what we wanted and he delivered exactly that. Other brokers we had dealt with were trying to convince us to get something else or to shorten our wish list. Mr. Reid, did neither and gave us exactly what we wanted. He is truly an extremely valuable asset to Century 21. You should be proud of his thorough knowledge, his warm demeanor, and his outstanding customer service! A++ for Mr. Reid!
In 2000. My Husband and I had the pleasure of purchasing our first home with the assisstance of Margaret Gilhooly Pidala. Margaret has always took pride in her work as well as having a personal connection with her clients. She has always impressed us on how you could give her a Name and she could recite the address of ALL of her former clients. So when it came time for us to Sell our home. We called Margaret and of course she knew exactly who we were. There was no doubt then with who we wanted to help sell our Home. She walked us step by step thoughout the entire process. Always maintaining a professional and calm spirit assuring us not to worry about anything letting us know that everything would be fine. I am so glad we came full circle with Margaret with the Buying and Selling of our home. We would highly Recommend her to others. Keep up the good work. Vernon/Venelle Williams
Sonia Thompson was the perfect Realtor for me. I can be a bit frazzled, and tough to deal with to say the least. Sonia with her beautiful British accent and gentle intelligent way worked well with me. She understood I was going through a very tough time, and Sonia was available to me whenever I needed to talk with her.
I would highly recommend Sonia as the perfect Real Estate Salesperson for busy professionals whose lives can be very demanding. Sonia has enormous patience and such a warm personality that hearing from her always lifted me.
Selling a family home can be very stressful. But from the moment I met Sonia I knew I hit home base. Miracles do happen. Thank you Sonia, thank you Century 21.
Joseph Zuniga is the best real estate agent I've dealt with during my hunt for the perfect co-op apartment for my mother. He is very patient and attentive. He understood my mother's needs and what she could afford. This saved us a lot of headaches and time. He was always available to address our concerns and questions.
We're glad Joseph guided us through the co-op purchasing process because having to deal with the building management and the co-op board gets stressful.
Since my mother's English is limited, Joseph recommended a great lawyer who spoke our language and made my mother feel at ease. Of course Joseph made sure that our lawyer worked well with the buyer's lawyer so the whole process was very smooth.
As a result of Joseph's attention to detail and considerate nature, the co-op purchasing process was quick and painless.
Mary Pride is a very knowledgeable person hard working very respectful and responsible she has a very good communication skills through out the process of my property we communicated with a good manners on daily bass any question i had it was answered and i had some issue with the Department of building and Mary Pride help me till the end she went out of her way to help me get through it specially i had an a surgery done i was not able to do most of the documents with the department of building but she help me all the way and she had sold my property so fast with a very good prize that i didn't expect..since i was told by other agent that i will not be able to sale the property for nothing even close to the prize Mary Pride sold it so i was very happy and surprised when i get the sale prizes ..i love her i am very satisfied with her service thank you and i will all ways recommend her to others and i all ready did thank you Mary Pride you are the best god bless
When compared to the other agents we interviewed, Victor Banks stood out as very professional and knowledgeable about the entire process, the local real estate market, and the specific needs for the sale of our house, while being a genuinely nice person.
Victor Bank's professional expertise in setting an appropriate sale price for the house resulted in a very swift sale for a much higher price than we had ever expected. Victor 's experience with the preparation of the house, as well as his assistance in providing resources to accomplish this, was a major reason for a great return on a small investment.
I cannot say enough about Victor's professionalism and character, along with his warm personality. Working with Victor made the challenges of selling of a house that much more manageable. He greatly reduced the stress for me.
Victor was incredibly responsive to my questions. He would always return my calls and texts within hours, but usually within minutes.
Margaret and Prakash contacted me by phone, There Office is close to the subject house, she and partner then met with me at the house at the appointed time, discussed tons of stuff with me. When I was finally ready to sell I contacted her. but I was in touch with her the whole time. She advised me the whole way. Being close to the house they kept an eye on the property. Got me a fantastic price.
great job. I would highly recommend her to anybody who wants a great agent.
Her partner Prakash Dindyal was also a great help.
