We will most assuredly use her again" ~G.N. James

It was great working with you Ashley. I so much appreciate knowledgeable professionals who are also level-headed, fair-minded and (as a fabulous bonus) NOT CRAZY! You would think that combination would be easy to come by, but honestly, it is rare. I am sorry that I am not in the market to buy in Lancaster...we would definitely hire you again! Best wishes,Catherine

“Ashley took the time to explain everything to us and that was paramount because we were first time home buyers. He made a potentially stressful experience very enjoyable and we will definitely use him again.”

Dan and I would like to thank you for your amazing commitment to us and your patience as we navigated the home buyer’s market for the first time. As first time home owners, it was a very overwhelming time for us, but you were with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have done it without your encouragement, advice, support and wisdom. Thank you for making our first home-buying experience a memorable one. We will always be grateful! - DH& MH

This was my first home purchase and Sharlene provided me with the best experience that anyone could ask for. She not only made me feel safe and secure but she made me feel like a family member. I would definitely refer Sharlene to people looking to purchase a home. Sharlene’s dedication to providing the most enjoyable experience did not stop at the signing, she kept in touch with me after the sale to make sure I was happy with my decision. Thank you Sharlene for all that you have done! - LW

Sherri Schwarz-Strathmeyer

Sherri Schwarz-Strathmeyer York

"Sherri worked with us in purchasing our new home and selling our old home. She did an excellent job with both transactions. Specifically, she helped us with her creative ideas on improving the overall appeal of our old house and helped us sell in a very tough market. Her overall knowledge in both buying and selling made both transactions go without a hitch." - Rob

"Sherri went out of her way to make my move to York comfortable. She talked me through the sometimes bewildering paper work. Sherri negotiated well with the seller's rep.who was ready to reject my offer outright until she suggested how he should work. I got my home for what I'd offered! Beyond her excellent knowledge and skill in real estate was her ability to take the "scariness" out of leaving my home in Lewistown where I'd lived since 1973, and of taking the huge financial leap of buying a home in York. I'm now close to my daughter and grandchildren. I've joined a great church. I've come to enjoy many of the wonderful cultural events and history that are part of York. Sherri was helpful, supportive and professional through the entire process, but through it all it felt like she was helping me, her friend. I'll gladly recommend her to anyone." - Phil

My husband & and I worked with Rachel purchasing new construction. She is very professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and she truly cares more about what you want in a home.

Thomas Buerk

Thomas Buerk Hershey

"My wife and I decided to move our family to Chicago and we had a number of renovation projects to get our home ready to sell. In addition, my mother was moving from Hershey to Lancaster and also had a home to sell. Tom put together the entire package for my family to help us. It was good to know we could work with one person to help us with our renovation project with an eye toward listing our home. Tom was invested in the entire effort, and even was an accomplished photographer when it came to listing our home online. Our home sold quickly during a recessionary period and Tom also stayed with my mom and sold her home as well. Tom’s patience and full service approach was just what we needed during a busy time in our lives as he even worked with us to complete the odds and ends required by the buyer after we had our offer. I would highly recommend Tom if you are interested in renovations, selling your home, or both! Thank you Tom." ~Tom and Terry W.

2 years ago me and my wife finally decided on selling our home to look for a new one, we had a couple of agents in mind, but the anxiety of home renovations before listing is always in the back of our minds. Going with Tom was exactly the right choice and the experienced was very fruitful after weighing-in the hard work plus the gains. He highlighted our old home’s advantages and helped a to fill-up the property’s shortcomings, Tom filled-up many hats during the course of selling our house. Also Tom had given me a lot of great advices in terms of house maintenance during the house staging process. Those advices paid good dividends by getting a lot of hits while the house is on the market which then eventually led to a buyer offer in a short period of time. He’s given us property information and expert opinion when we started looking at houses in terms of location, upgrades and maintenance needed, history and up to the energy consumption a house has to use. Given these information, we were able to appreciate our target budget and comfortably arrive to a decision in choosing our new home. We were smooth sailing from the time we offered for a house, towards negotiations up to the acceptance of our offer. His presence in the inspections, walk thru up till the closing of the sale negotiations is a huge benefit for us, we saw what was under the hood , and what we are negotiating for was explained clearly for us to decide confidently . Aside from having him as your personal resource for your home renovations, he also has a list of reliable connections on hand, from lender, inspectors, contractors and product material distributors. We highly recommend Tom to help you in sell and/or buy your home in the area. Tom is a dependable agent for your real estate needs, in our eyes, truly personable and will get the job rightfully done. Thanks! - The Abadillas

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

Marcy Laferte

Marcy Laferte York

I would like to express my utmost gratitude to you for helping us find our home after relocating to York from Pittsburgh. I know that I was extremely picky regarding what I was looking for and was willing to wait for as long as necessary to find exactly what I wanted. You worked tirelessly for Diane and I taking us to probably more houses than usual. Not once did I ever sense frustration on you end for our lack of urgency. You continued to work hard daily until you found what I was looking for. Through the entire process you kept us updated and informed on any developments. You made the home buying procedure exciting and positive and I would highly recommend your services to anyone. Please feel free to use this letter as a testimonial and you can also use us as a referral to any of your prospective clients. Thanks again for a great experience! - Gary and Diane R

"I want to thank Marcy and Coldwell Banker for bringing successful closure to my previous residence. I can't say enough about everything Marcy accomplished in her efforts to reach her goal of the sale of my property. I was very confident in her knowledge and abilities which concluded in a positive result." ~Brenda

Sajy Mathew

Sajy Mathew Lancaster

I have moved many times and Sajy Mathew is, hands down, the best realtor that I have used. I am new to the area and thought I knew where I wanted to live, but after one meeting with Sajy, he suggested that I also look in Hamilton Park. It seems that he knew me better than I knew myself. I have now lived in Hamilton Park for several months and could not be happier. Sajy made the entire process enjoyable and stress free. He is professional, personsable, knowledgable, ethical, and an all around good person. The relationship did not not end when the papers were signed. I still count on him for help from everyting to a contractor referral to questions about fences.- Valerie Z

Sajy helped my wife and I find the home of our dreams. He was incredibly patient , knowledgeable of the market and the overall process, and truly worked in our best interest, to obtain the best deal possible. Sajy is dependable, trustworthy and became and now remains a great friend of the family. If you are looking for a home or interested in selling your home, look no further than Sajy Mathew.Steve & Kathy R
