Jersey City's residential construction boom is spreading beyond its wa
"Gerard was confident in his ability as a real estate sales agent and told me he could sell my apartment at a higher price than I expected. I trusted him. In the interim, he also agreed to help me find a new home for my family always focusing on the sale of my place because he knew it would put me in the best position to be a considered a serious buyer in a tough and incredibly competitive market. I found a new place within a short (remarkably short) frame of time. He advised me on how to make an offer, and how to make sure my offer would be accepted. He knows the market in the area exceptionally well, and he knows sellers and agents so well, and really knows how to “read” people. Because of these traits, he will know how to advise you best and he did. Trust me LISTEN TO HIS ADVICE. He suggested tactics I did not agree with but in the end, I trusted him and he was 150% right each time. Once my offer was accepted, he was a man of his word.....He sold my property at full asking price offer within 3 DAYS!! I know that sounds hard to believe but he did a pre showing of the apartment on Monday went on MLS on Tuesday, aggressively showed the place and set up appointment after appointment and by Thursday we had a full price offer. We also received two other offers which he told me how to handle, professionally and in a good business manner. He gave me recommendations on an attorney, a mortgage broker, and an inspector. I used every one of his referrals and not only was my contract out of attorney review within less than 3 days without any hiccups, my inspection for both my sale and purchase went off without a hitch. Since he knows the local area particularly well this allows him to tell you his experience with certain buildings, agents, real estate lawyers, mortgage companies and home inspectors. I closed on the sale of my condo within 45 days, my purchase closed the following day! My biggest fear was selling and buying, especially with a newborn baby, and to be financially able to do so without the added stress. I needed to find my new home of my dreams quickly and sell my current home all without any major hurdles. Gerard accomplished all of that and more, he held my hand when I needed some coaching, and he walked me through the process when I did not know what to do, or would not listen. Real estate transactions are never easy, but even with every hurdle; Gerard knew how to handle it. I have bought three times, and not once did it ever go this smoothly. This time was different; a lot more was on the line with the sale, and with the short time frame, and the tremendously competitive market. Gerard is extremely responsive (I called a lot!), he knows how to treat his clients, and he was always available when I needed questions answered, he is smart, business savvy and most of all he is great at what he does - he is an amazing salesperson. He knows his abilities and his confidence shows in his work, his demeanor, and most of all his end result. I would and do plan on using him if I ever buy or sell again. He handled both transactions meticulously, professionally and made an enormously stressful situation seem like a breeze."
