Lois Rosenthal (Sold)

Hal was very charming and knowledgeable. He was always available when we needed him. Hal became a good friend to me as I needed extra help to move to my retirement home. He exceeded my every expectation and went above and beyond. I'd recommend him to anyone needing help with real estate in Miami.

(Hal's Note:  Lois moved to New Bern, NC to be close to family. We had quite a challenge with her townhouse because of termites, but she was a cool customer throughout and we overcame. Best of luck in your new home!)

Quite simply, I have the best Realtor. He will exceed your expectation, no need to look more.
This was AMAZING experience relating an excellent service in every way possible. Hal did it all and got a price for our home that was higher than we expected!

(Hal's Note:  Once under contract to sell their home, I turned our attention to West Palm, where they wanted to move. Using the excellent RE/MAX referral network, I found them a great agent and assisted all the way through their purchase as well. When you work with me, I think 'big picture'.  It's not just a home sale, it's a new chapter in life...and I'm here to make that happen.)

Ryan & Shannon Lane (Bought)

Being new to Florida, we needed an expert in the local real estate market. Hal's knowledge and ability to explain the many unique details of the Miami real estate market were very insightful. His ties to the local community make him an extremely valuable asset for anyone buying or selling a home in Palmetto Bay.

(Hal's Note:  Welcome to Miami! Your family is going to love it here and I've gained a great new neighbor. Great schools, great events and I'll be introducing you to some really great families!)

Lisa, for her camera shy mother Ruth Graff (Sold)

Lisa writes... "I live in Tennessee and my mother is 82 years old. It was comforting to know from speaking with my mom and Hal that I didn't have to worry about anything. He dots the I's and crosses the T's. He always included me to keep me informed throughout the whole process. I recently sold my house and I have never met a Realtor like Hal. Besides being knowledgeable and competent, he goes far and beyond the call of duty. The process began with Hal running to Home Depot to buy light bulbs and replaced any that were burnt out in my mother's home. He was present, helpful, and supportive throughout the entire sale. I would recommend Hal to anyone who needs real estate help!"

Ruth writes... "You have been an astounding Realtor. You always treated this home, which is deeply loved, with high regard and the owner with sensitivity, kindness and professionalism. Including my family, attorney, present to-do lists, I cannot even recall the countless ways in which you helped me.  You made an extremely difficult task for an 82 year old a much easier process.  Or rather, as easy as possible. I think, you too must have liked this home. I heard you pointing out the wonderful features that it does possess and I always wanted someone to deal with me and new buyers honestly.   And, you did that! With love and much appreciation... Ruth Graff"

(Hal's Note:  Words cannot describe the warm feelings and pride I have when helping seniors take their next steps.  Ruth is a warm and loving soul who was able to pass on her home to another who will nurture and take care of it just like she did.)

UPDATE:  From an card received from Ruth at the closing... "There is so much that I want to say & write to you. My appreciation for you is deep. You went far and beyond what most Realtors would have done. Of course, I am fortunate in so many ways, but this was a very difficult situation for me to be in and you made it as easy as possible. Not only are you an extremely competent Realtor, but a good, kind and sensitive person. Your creativity is an added plus. I wish you everything in life that you wish for yourself and your family.  -Ruth
