Brian and Dina Bonafede offered a consultation not just a real estate transaction. They answered our many questions demonstrating a solid knowledge of the local market. When issues arose, they resolved them quickly. They used their impressive negotiation skills to obtain the best price for the house we purchased. As far as selling our house, they used top notch technology such as a drone for aerial photography and professional high end brochures. They also provided their own staging crew. We highly recommend the whole crew at CSR and especially the Bonafede team for all your real estate needs.
Guardus Insurance Services represents many different insurance companies so they obtained the best policy for our needs. Again, since our realtor and insurance broker are under the same roof, our home buying experience was expedited and seamless. Aside from the convenience of realtor and broker working together, Guardus provided good value by beating the cost of our previous policy by 20%.
The CSR team was professional, accessible and always answered all our questions, usually within 5 minutes of texting at all hours of day and night. The CSR realtor team of Terry and Robyn possessed a deep knowledge of the local market. They really listened to what we had to say and found our “ideal” house within a couple of weeks. We felt Terry and Robyn to be extremely trustworthy.
John Barney, mortgage broker at Client 1st Home Loans was more agile and faster than traditional banks. He was much more accommodating to handling our specific requests. It made the whole process so much smoother and faster to have our realtors and mortgage broker working together. John worked tirelessly around Christmas break to help us close as quickly as possible since we were under a tight timeframe to due the seller’s requirements.
We highly recommend the professionals at CSR. In fact, we have already recommended CSR to many of our friends!
We are new to the area having moved from Alaska. We drove by CSR Real Estate Services and thought we would give their realtors a try. We are glad we did. The whole team is professional, knowledgeable and above all else personable. They took great care of us - providing valuable information about the area and communicating the whole way through the home buying transaction. You can really tell these guys love to help people and know this market.
Having bought several homes in the past, we were not new to the process. However, what was different this time was the breadth of services offered. We were able to buy our home and also secure financing and home insurance all through the team at CSR. We used MarKey Capital to obtain our home mortgage and Guardus Insurance Services to get home and auto insurance. Everyone we worked with was informed and dedicated. The whole process was so much easier and less time consuming - completely eliminating the need for us to act as the go between our realtor as well as our mortgage and insurance broker.
If you want professionals that are easy to work with, knowledgeable and caring, we highly recommend you call the professionals at CSR!
Jason and I have worked with Robert Garcia on two separate occasions now, our first home purchase then a sale and purchase of our current residence. Robert is always available to answer any questions and very accommodating of our needs. He is a pleasant person to work with and the reason we have also referred him to friends and family who have also completed home purchases with him.
With regards to John (Barney) at Client 1st Home Loans we have worked with him on our second home purchase as well as a refinance not too long after our original purchase as the rates dropped. He is easy to work with and very responsive to my emails and calls. He made both the purchase and refinance smooth and we also referred him to a family member that purchased through Robert.
Robert and John work together to provide a seamless process. They are accommodating to our needs and aware of our busy schedules but made it as easy as possible.
By leveraging the relationship of both Robert and John knowing each other, they could take care of things without us having to constantly be involved. A lot of behind the scenes things I don’t necessary want to push back and forth were handled. This was a much better process than working with our own mortgage broker on our first home purchase.
My fiancée and I had a great experience working with Robert Garcia. His knowledge and experience made buying our first home easy. We had a lot of questions and he took the time to answer all of them which makes the process much less stressful. Even after we moved into our new house, he's kept in touch with friendly reminders and making sure everything was perfect. I highly recommend Robert if you are thinking of buying or selling your home.
Brian and Natalie also bought home insurance through Guardus Insurance Services and thought the whole process was streamlined, convenient and hassle free.
