In any case, we stand ready to provide guidance and assistance in getting the house on the market and procuring a buyer for the property quickly, for the best possible price, and with the least amount of stress.

"Mr. Slifkin did an amazing job of showing and finding a buyer for my mother's home. Living in New York and selling a home in Florida can be a daunting job. Mr. Slifkin put me in touch with an individual who helped me clean out and prepare the home for sale and charities to donate furniture. He was familiar with the neighborhood and comparable homes for sale. We had a few prospective buyers and eventually sold the house above the asking price. Mr. Slifkin is very knowledgeable, respectful, and professional. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him to anyone putting their home on the market. It was a very pleasant experience from start to finish."
"I needed to sell a property owned by a trust. The property is 200 miles from my office, and Eric handled everything (including paying the utilities, the cleanout, appraisal, inspection, repairs, boxing of personal papers, and ultimate sale). He constantly kept me informed, offered proper guidance on the pricing, offers/ counter-offer, and provided every detail to sell the property. He comes strongly recommended, and I second that."
"I enjoyed working with Eric and Bill. They were very candid, straight shooters, set appropriate expectations, and understand the market. Together they were very responsive to calls and questions, very helpful when it came time to closing and emptying the house. Eric and Bill responded to emails late at night and early in the AM. They were the right Realtors for us and the market."
