Justin Smith

Justin Smith Camp Hill

Dear Lee and Justin, words cannot express how impressed and pleased I am with the extremely professional job you did to sell my “not so run of the mill house”. Your creativity and ability to think outside the box of simple square footage, made listing and selling my house a wonderful and enjoyable experience. I must say that selling in less than one week from listing proved why you are indeed “Smith Top Team”. From the first time Justin called me for the opportunity to sell my house, it just felt like you were the winning team. It was such a joy to watch father and son work together with such respect for one another’s talents. Your respect for my home and of me was something other realtors failed to convey. Working with you was a pure joy. Your knowledge and experience put me at ease knowing that you had it all under control. You even liked my pups, Bogey and Martini. I can now tell everyone that the best realtors in the Harrisburg area are, Smith Top Team, Lee and Justin. Thank you for making this emotional move in my life a beautiful memory. -- Jan, Bogey and Martini

"Brian, I just want to thank you for all that you have done for my husband and myself. It has been a real pleasure dealing with you. You have responded to all our questions and concerns with promptness, and have given us great advice. We so appreciate all you have done in helping us to buy and sell our rental property. The whole process went very smoothly, and that was because of your great organizational skills and for so being so detailed about making sure everything was done correctly.

"Jenn is awesome. Jenn helped us tremendously finding the right home for us. She was responsive to our needs and kept us well informed throughout the whole process. She was knowledgeable about all the areas we were interested in. She responded to all our questions in a very prompt manner. She has been a delight to work with and made our search for the right home an easy and fun experience." ~Rajni

Jenn Debernardis is unquestionably one of the best agents I have ever had the pleasure to work with in assisting me to find a property that I would love. She was clearly dedicated to meeting my property needs and worked very hard to ensure that any concerns I had when dealing with the seller were well represented and resolved to my satisfaction. It is my pleasure to recommend Jenn as your real estate agent. You definitely will not be disappointed in the service you are provided. ~Pat Y.

David Ferris

David Ferris Camp Hill

“David....Thank you for never loosing faith! I will recommend you to everyone I know up there. I hope the new owners enjoy the house and yard…... Thank you again!” - Joanne G

“We purchased a historic mill in Elizabethtown, PA …with very little pre-planning in mind. Needless to say, we had to sell our current home in record time at a fair price. In addition, the housing market was at an all time high of homes…With this in mind, we knew we had to choose the right realtor very quickly. We contacted three agencies and interviewed three agents. We listened intently….and scored them on their overall ability to deliver what we needed- a SOLD sign in our yard and closing in less than 60 days. One of the agents we interviewed had worked with us for over a year as a buyer’s agent and the second was a parent on our son’s soccer team. The third was David Ferris, whom we had never met before. We picked David. He distinguished himself in his approach to selling a home and his confidence in his ability to move our house quickly.We highly recommend David Ferris to any potential buyers or sellers. He is an exceptional Realtor who is a pleasure to work with and will exceed your expectations.” - Merritt and Katcha N

Phyl Rittel

Phyl Rittel Lancaster

Phyl was assigned as part of my relocation and what a blessing. She was fantastic on every front. Her flexibility, patience and thoroughness were all outstanding, especially as we were moving from California.

Phyl was the listing agent on a previous home purchase and although she didn't represent us, we were impressed with her professionalism. We knew we would want Phyl to help us with our next home purchase. When we bought our next home with Phyl, we developed a friendship with her. She was always prompt when returning our calls. We were on vacation during the crucial time in our house search and she called us daily with updates. This was our fourth home purchase and we have never had a transition go so smoothly. Phyl was on top of everything. She couldn't have done better, and I actually miss her since our settlement. My kids thought she was great too! -KC

Tricia Como

Tricia Como Hershey

"Tricia was absolutely fantastic. She is extremely personable and well versed in the entire home purchasing process. Tricia really was looking out for us and our best interest."

"We bought a home on a short sale which I heard could be problematic. Tricia kept us updated on the situation all the time and I appreciated feeling like a was in the loop. She really helped us get the most out of the home buying experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing a house." - Jon T

Loretta Campbell

Loretta Campbell Camp Hill

I just wanted to say that Loretta Campbell did a great job in helping us buy and sell our home. When I was first inquiring about buying a home, she was the agent on duty. Even though we weren't ready at the time of the call to buy/sell, she kept in contact with us periodically. Out of all the real estate agencies that I have talked to, Homestead was the only one that seemed interested in helping us. I would like to thank Loretta Campbell and Coldwell Banker Homestead Group for a very good experience in buying/selling our home. -Constance T.

Loretta Campbell is outstanding in all respects: Professional, Excellent Advice, A very good Listener. She knows the real estate business 100%. She has my complete confidence. I will certainly do business with Loretta Campbell again. -Joel C

Jan Bernardini

Jan Bernardini Lancaster

Was connected with Jan Bernardini through USAA's Movers Advantage Program. Jan specialized in first time home buyers and went above and beyond during an important and exciting time of my life - buying my first home. Jan always took the time to answer my questions, both simple and complex. She never failed to return phone calls or emails and made every effort to address my concerns. Once I finally agreed on a property, Jan continued to offer her expertise and support. I can sum up my experience with Jan Bernardini by saying that she is a true professional that will dedicate herself to her clients. Jan truly set the bar for realtors. I highly recommend!

"Jan was truly a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her to anyone! As first time home buyers, we didn’t know much about buying a home and she was able to help us through the whole process! Jan is flexible with her schedule and we had a great time with her as we looked at a countless amount of homes. She never got discouraged with us, and was determined to help us find a home we loved. Knowledgeable, friendly, diligent, and responsive are only a few of her great qualities! Coldwell Banker has one of the best!" ~Katherine D.

Nancy Kreider

Nancy Kreider Lancaster

"Dealing with the move / home sale of an elderly parent can be very stressful. Luckily, I had Nancy Kreider in my corner to do all of the hard work. Nancy handled the sale of the property quickly and efficiently. She knows her craft well and applies her knowledge what seems to be effortlessly, although I know she worked hard to achieve the best outcome. Nancy went out of her way to accomplish a few items, and it was very much appreciated. I would highly recommend Nancy for your real estate needs." ~Don H

Jennifer Rule

Jennifer Rule Lancaster

I recently purchased a home with the help of Jenny. I could not be more satisfied with the home and the service Jenny provided. Jenny was professional and courteous. A big plus when you a spending a lot of time with an agent and searching for the house that speaks to you. Jenny was always available and listened to my concerns and spoke on my behalf. It’s a great feeling when your realtor is truly working for you.-- Phil H, Millersville PA

"Working with Jennifer was quite a pleasure. She was very accommodating with our schedules and when things became difficult she gave us the confidence that everything would work out. Jennifer went the extra mile of her concern for my sick pet and of the death of my grandfather. Anyone that gets the opportunity to work with her won't be disappointed." ~Zillow.com Review

“In one word - Fantastic. Lisa is a consumate professional, puts you at ease, finds out what you want and what you really need, then finds it.

A pleasure to deal with.” Paul and Suzanne

Thai Loy

Thai Loy Lancaster

I had been looking for the right home for a great price. Two difficult things to find in this market. After reserching a few prospects Thai had emailed me the night before we were going to look at a couple of properties and we saved that one for last as it was a bank forclosure. After looking at two of the homes we went to the bank owned and to my surprise it was a gem! A two story three bedroom home in west hempfield one car garage with newer siding, roof, central air, etc. It was quite a shock seeing that bank owned properties get a bad rap due to the unknown conditions. Not this one! I have instant equity and am very pleased with the purchase. Thai's knowledge and true understanding of what I was looking for was exactly what I needed. I purchased the property and am very happy with the home! Thanks for everything Thai. Looking foward to the next one. - Brian J

"Thai Loy is a native of the area and therefore knows and has a deep vested interest in the community. The specific situation we were involved in was a very complicated and time expedited FHA 203k loan on a foreclosed property in our neighborhood. Through Thai's experience and rich set of industry contacts, he was able to navigate through all of the hurdles we were presented with and we closed our loan on time. Given the circumstances we had in front of us, me and my wife had our doubts that this would all go the way we were hoping. Thai was attentive to our needs, respectful of our time and shared in the excitement and enthusiasm we had for the end goal. He turned a seemingly impossible situation into a reality for us. I would HIGHLY recommend Thai Loy as your agent." - Kevin & Laurie A
