Clients are saying:
"Amy was a remarkable guide for our family of four as we searched for our first home. She has a gentle nature that welcomed us to each meeting or viewing. We viewed a wide range of homes in our desired location that included: “move-in ready” properties, those in need of some to all repairs and renovations, to homes that needed to be completely torn down. Amy was always keen to go on an adventure and tried to highlight the possibilities within each home viewing. Amy was an incredible asset to help us think broadly and flexibly while anchoring to our core priorities throughout the home search. My partner and I agreed on many things. However, we were not aligned on all variables (e.g. kitchen island versus man-cave). Amy’s greatest strength in working with our family was in entertaining our priorities and wishes, while remaining aware of our short and long-term goals related to home ownership. She balanced our personalities well and managed moments where our moods fluctuated (e.g. writing offers, waiting for responses, the inspection) with grace. We ended up purchasing a home in our ideal neighborhood and are extremely grateful for what it has provided for our family in the last two years. Had it not been for Amy’s patience, willingness to serve as a subjective and objective support, and optimism we might be in a different and less desirable scenario. Since we purchased our home, we have remained in close contact with Amy. We have reached out to Amy periodically and ask for her opinion on market trends. This helps us tremendously as we make choices regarding renovation and other plans we are contemplating for our home. We have referred Amy to close friends and they have had great experiences as well. We know they are in knowledgeable, caring, and capable hands."
"Amy was terrific!!! She was as helpful as any agent could possibly be. Her assistance, follow-up, compassion, and just her general attitude towards the process and us, her clients, was legendary. We were mostly amazed with her staying power, because I believe we gave her plenty of reasons to quit on us but she stuck it out and maintained a pleasant, legitimate smile at every encounter (smile). I wish we could've done more than simply thank her for her time, because she went far beyond anyone's expectations for service (we saw some homes four times, and looked at over 40 easily). Whatever this company does, do everything in your power to maintain this level of professionalism on your staff. In doing so, you would be guaranteeing the best real estate business America has to offer. Thank you very much for allowing us to work with Amy Bernstein."
"Amy is the best! We couldn’t have imagined working with anyone else. She was perfect for us...very grounded, and really guided us through the entire process. Plus we found a new friend in Amy. She’s truly terrific!"
"We worked with Amy last fall to buy our home. It was a great experience and we ended up with the perfect home for us. She was very knowledgeable, diligent, and a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. She was very accessible and always happy to take our many calls and questions. She walked us through the entire process and it could not have gone more smoothly. It was amazing how quickly she learned our likes and dislikes and was able to find houses that were great options for us. We would most definitely recommend Amy."
"Excellent personalized and professional help. I was really impressed how much she would go out of her way to make the sale so smooth. Amy was very knowledgeable and networked to a great attorney and other professionals."
