George Koudounas is a very professional and well connected real estate agent who had the ability to rent a space within a few months that I had previously listed for over a year with another agency. I highly recommend him and have total confidence in his ability.

Linda Livingstone recommends Janet Delgado - The Brunell Team

Seller

Janet Delgado is a wonderful, caring and hard working person and broker. Having worked closely with her for almost a year, she offered great advice on issues that came up and went above and beyond doing research that helped me and my family make important decisions.

Matthew Ritter recommends Janet Delgado - The Brunell Team

Seller

I was fortunate enough to have Janet as my agent when selling my Dad's home. I had originally engaged another agent for 90 days before I switched to Janet. That original agent had two or three showings the entire 90 days he handled the listing, in part because of crappy pictures that he took. He was confident they would work just fine. They didn't. My Dad's home was an unusual home, a renovated dairy barn. Not your average sale. When Janet came in she had both drone footage and new, 360 degree view pictures done that were absolutely top shelf. Very, very well done. She did an open house for agents and a separate open house for buyers. She was always engaged, you always knew when and how you could reach her, her communication was terrific the entire time. She always jumped in to help resolve issues when they came up, she always had a good idea or suggestion if we needed one. I always felt like she was truly a trusted advisor with my best interests driving everything she did. It was a great experience. Once she came on board we quickly had interested buyers and, ultimately, had two viable offers on the table. I would highly recommend Janet, you'd be fortunate to have her as your agent.

My family and I have known and worked with Janet over twenty-five years. Because of her vast real estate knowledge, excellent customer service, and personal integrity, she is our real estate person.

Denise Shaw recommends Janet Delgado - The Brunell Team

Seller and Buyer

We were so impressed with Janet that we have used her services for all of our real estate needs. We listed our first house with Janet and she did such an amazing job that we had an accepted offer in 27 days!
Next Janet not only helped us find our dream house she was there every step of the way to help with any questions or concerns that we may have had. Eight years later when hen we had to move again due to work relocation it was Janet that we called to list our house, she worked tirelessly for us and put our house up on every platform you can imagine as well as an open house and realtors open house and follow ups. In a difficult market she was able to find us a buyer within the time frame that we needed to have the house sold. Janet is a pleasure to work with and helps to put you at ease with her extensive knowledge of the real estate market and will always go above and beyond to either help you sell your home or find a new home. We were lucky to have her in our corner!

Joe LaGrutta recommends George Koudounas

Buyer

George is not only a great a realtor but a great guy as well. He is one of the hardest working people I have ever met and his knowledge of the area & real estate in general was incredible and second to none. My wife and I trusted him and always referred back to him when making any decisions. He guided us in the right direction and treated us like family. Not only are we extremely happy, grateful, & excited about our new home but we were able to find a great investment as well. None of this would have been possible without his help. I would recommend George to everyone I know. He makes the buying process fun & enjoyable (not to mention successful!) I couldn't thank him enough for all he has done for my family.

Jane a weber recommends George Koudounas

buyer and seller

George is foremost a gentleman, professional, he is patient, diligent and a teacher. He's right on point and makes his clients feel like a friend. When I decided to rent out my house he took charge. He explained everything , all the scenarios and possibilities. He answered all of my questions was always available and made me feel like I was his only client. If there was ever an issue George was there to help and advise even if it was beyond his job description. He exceeded all of my expectations. After 3 years I decided to sell the house yet again his diligence and knowledge made the process go smoothly within a month the house was sold and I got my asking price. I am now looking for investment properties and George knows exactly what I'm looking for and provides those choices. He is personable and even takes the time to speak and explain the market to my children answering all the questions. I would recommend George to anyone who needs a realtor for any reason. He is a mentor and friend who gets the job done well.!

Virginia Ng recommends Nicole Gold

Buyer

Nicole reached out to me when I joined a local mom group. She wasn't even my realtor at the time, but she provided me so much useful information for the town we were looking at. When the first realtor we used fell through we contacted Nicole and she was and still is great! Very responsive, went above and beyond what was expected, and still almost 2 months after closing, shes still checking in on us. I would definitely and HIGHLY recommend Nicole!

James Newman recommends Tracy Lockhart -The Brunell Team

Buyer & Seller Shawangunk

Tracy is an extremely knowledgeable and very professional agent. I used her to locate a house for me in the Orange and Ulster County area in 2017.
She was very responsive to our needs, never wasting time on properties
that were not right. She was just super and went out of her way to accommodate our needs. Everything went so smooth. She found a very good attorney for us. Everything could not have been better.

My wife passed away later on 2017. In 2018 It was a no-brainer to call Tracy to help me sell my house. She did a masterful job and was so compassionate in her dealing with me.

Tracy is not only a real pro but a super person also

Ashley & Christopher Schmidt recommend Jennifer Brighton- The Brunell Team

Buyer-Walden

Jenn was AMAZING! From start to finish. She dealt with all communications and kept us in the loop about everything. She was quick to respond when texted or called and made sure to voice our concerns when needed. She made herself available for multiple back to back showings. She also dealt with our deal falling through due to LARGE septic issues on the sellers part and was able to continue searching and found us the most amazing home. I haven’t ever been so happy with an Agent before. She was the best. I recommend her to everyone I talk to who plans on purchasing or selling their home!!

The Hunt Family recommends Colin Seitz

Seller

Colin is an expert marketer and positioned our home in the best position for sale in the marketplace. In addition to producing eye popping marketing pieces it's when we had issues during the sales process that Colin really showed his expertise. We had an issue because we had a finished basement that required not only an inspection but a certificate of occupancy. As it turned out it required moving some walls and doing some contracting work in order to get the C.O. Colin oversaw the entire effort and even met with the building inspector. He was able tor work closely with he buyers realtor to ensure that our home got sold and closed in a normal timeframe. Its this over and above effort and deep expertise and knowledge of the local market that make Colin the best realtor we have ever had......highly recommend.

Outstanding agent from start to finish. From listing to closing, every aspect of the process was handled professional, and extremely easy. Mr. Seitz’s expert advice on best time to list for a sale, what needed to be done in terms of making house marketable and of course the listing price where absolutely right on the money. His handling of buyers from other agents was also incredible because of his exceptional marketing skills. I have purchased and sold many buildings in my life, not one of them were ever handled so smoothly with no problem. Highly recommend Colin Seitz.
