Isaac has helped us purchase 2 homes and sell one over the last 3 years. We began a search for a new home with Isaac 3 years ago, when we were unsure whether we wanted a larger home in the suburbs, or a home on land. Isaac patiently and diligently guided us through this process of weighing our options and determining what would be our best move. He was always happy to show us the newest home on the market in either of these scenarios as we determined our best next move. He always provided thoughtful and insightful feedback about each property and its potential for our family, never trying to push us into a home to gain a quick commission, but obviously providing assessments that showed his genuine interest in us finding the best home to meet our needs. And as importantly as these other attributes, Isaac always greeted us on the phone or in person with his upbeat, cheerful disposition. Isaac’s personality is so kind and sincere, it is impossible to not also consider him a friend in working with him. When we finally found the right home, we were very impressed at Isaac’s ability to gauge the market, the seller’s motivation and likely response, and the way for us to put in a winning offer in a multiple offer situation, so that we were happy with the sales price and able to close on the home. We cannot imagine a better person to guide individuals and families through the very important and personal home buying process, with Isaac’s knowledge and experience in real estate, his wonderful personality, and his adept negotiation skills, he is the perfect person to have on your side.
In the time that we were looking for a new primary residence, Isaac also helped us in the purchase and sale of a “fix and flip” property. Again, in this situation which had the potential to be very stressful, Isaac provided those excellent skills in understanding the market and which home at what purchase price would allow us the margin to make the necessary improvements and realize a worthwhile return on our investment. His knowledge and advice regarding the best use of our repair budget was instrumental in the sale of that home at our asking price to the first person who viewed it. Needless to say, we couldn’t be happier with the way that investment turned out, and it was due in very large part to Isaac’s role in the purchase, renovation, and sale of that home.
What impresses us about Isaac’s negotiation skills is that he is very good at assessing the situation of the other party in the transaction and not afraid to act in the best interest of his client at all times, but whether we were low-balling a seller or turning down the requests of a buyer, Isaac handled all negotiations with his upbeat, friendly personality, not taking things personally, but handling everything very professionally. That is a hard balance to strike.
We recommend Isaac regularly, without hesitation, to anyone in need of a realtor. His knowledge, experience, negotiation skills, and exceptional personality make him the ideal realtor, and a great new friend!
