testimonials from our happy clients
"After many years doing real estate, I was tired of doing all the work and my broker taking so much of my hard earned money. Grand Avenue was a great place to go work for. The broker and training manager were so organized and set us up with the free agent website. They had very low fees and were so great in getting me up and running so quickly."
"Our escrow with Preston Escrow saved me time because I never have to call them - the answers are there before the questions were necessary. My clients are treated with sincere concern. My paperwork and escrow instructions are timely and my stress level less because business is being handled in a professional, gracious and jovial manner."
"Preston Escrow provides professional yet personable service at a very reasonable price. Their turn around time is extraordinary, as I have been able to close as quickly as 10 days. Our buyers are very satisfied with the handling of their contracts. I highly recommend Preston Escrow Services."
"I did not know what escrow even did when we first started buying a home. Preston Escrow was really were helpful and I was impressed how they seemed to be protecting us all the time and not allowing anyone to spend our money without our permission. The escrow company even worked directly with the title company and fixed a problem related to an old tax lein. They were very professional and I would recommend them to anyone."
"My real estate deals with Grand Avenue have been was simply outstanding. My wife and I were looking to downsize to a smaller home. Our agent worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. He was so knowledgeable and always available to show us homes on short notice. It was his local area knowledge and networking that enabled us to purchase our new home. We simply could not have done this without him. I have been watching the listing since our offer was accepted and there has still not been another home like the one our agent found!"
"Our Grand Avenue agent met with us to sell our home. During the conversations, we realized that the financing of the next home might be an issue. The agent sold our listing at list price, made sure our next loan was pre-approved and then found us an amazing new home! Our agent did a great job on my transactions. He kept in touch with me daily and offered excellent advice. I was very satisfied with the outcome and will hire my Grand Avenue agent again in the future."
"My wife and I were at rock bottom and our credit was horrible. Not only did Elie sit down with me and go over every confusing thing and made things clear for me. Never once did Elie give up or faulted in making sure we were taken care of and happy. I can’t even imagine the extra hours he put in that he never mentioned or charged us for. Throughout the process as stressful and complicated Elie was always there with a smile and a solution. I look at him as my friend now and i did not know him prior to our refi. If you need anything in this field Elie is the man to use. Thank you Elie my wife thanks you and my children thank you. You are amazing at your job but you care more about your client and that is so clear."
"Mortgages sounded so complicated until our Grand Avenue Loan Officer met us and made us feel comfortable and confident. He gave us many options to consider. We chose to do a Fannie-Mae purchase loan with 10% down. During the loan process, we found out some bad news about our earnings history. To our amazement, the Loan Officer switched our file to another investor who had a solution. You guys really know your stuff!"Jerry and Rose
"Our Lender at Grand Avenue went above and beyond for us. Most people working with a situation and complications we had would have said there is nothing I can do for you. Not him! He wouldn’t stop till we got the right loan and faught for us and never gave up. Our family is beyond blessed because of what he did for us. He works non stop for you and actually cares about who he is helping. This is a rare thing these days especially in this business. He is literally the best in the business."
"After spending more than two years trying to sell our house, we thought it would never sell. We contacted Michael Burke for one last try with a new realtor. Several of his past clients highly recommended him. What a difference!! Michael actually had a marketing plan that worked. He clearly defined a process to follow that included some effort on our part to stage the house. He really went to work, bringing in top notch advisors and actively marketing the property. His pricing advice and negotiation skills were spot on. The results speak for themselves. The house sold in 16 days (exactly Michael Burke's average at the time) and within 2% of our advertised price. Michael stayed with the sale advising us every step of the way through closing. We are extremely happy. Thank you, Michael."
"Our home had been listed by another agent and we were getting really low offers. Our Grand Avenue agent inspected our home and recommended various small changes to improve the look of our home. The agent then set up a staging company to make our house look like a model home. They set up a serious open house plan and people started making offers near retail value. We ended up selling our home for over the list price. Amazing what you can get by hiring an expert agent."
"Our experience with Grand Avenue began a few years ago with the sale of my home and the purchase of a new home. Everything went very smoothly and my Agent's knowledge of the area, diligence, and attention to detail made those transactions worry free. A few years later, They were our first choice to get us into the house of our dreams and to sell our home once again. Our agent was somehow able to always be one step ahead and ultimately see us through another sale and purchase. He sold our home within hours of listing. From market analysis, contract negotiations, and doing literally whatever it took to get both deals done, our agent was outstanding in terms of his ability to make it happen !! We felt like family and like we were his only client. Highly recommend this agent and friend for your next real estate transaction."
"We were new at the buying process. Our agent with Grand Avenue spent the time explaining everything and made us feel like we could actually buy a house. We got a great deal on a home near our family and even got a loan with no down payment! Thanks to Grand Avenue."
