‟Dear Todd and Paula, We are thrilled with our new home in Margate! Indeed, just as you hoped, we love where we live.  Thank you wholeheartedly for helping us achieve our dream of owning a beach house. Todd, our every interaction with you was pleasant and fruitful; you had answers to our questions at the ready.  On the occasions that you did not know the answer, we appreciated not only that you were forthright with us, but also the swiftness with which you found the information and provided it to us.  It was very refreshing to deal with someone who is excellent with follow-up and so knowledgeable about seashore real estate.  Thank you for educating and guiding us as we decided to buy our vacation home.  Paula, we appreciated your advisory manner as you took us on that first, smart tour of the house.  You put us immediately at ease with the language you used to describe the house, your communication with the builder, and the suggestions you offered for space usage--thanks for the midnight kitchen idea for the room adjoining the rooftop deck! Dale and I have given you our most resounding endorsement in that we have recommended the Hartman Group to our family.  We hope you will come to our home for a visit, because you had a part in our attaining it and we know you share our enthusiasm over it. Once again, thank you for being so assistive throughout the process and truly working for us” Read More ▾

We know it wasn't easy-- we certainly did have a long and specific list of criteria! :) But, you stuck with us and matched us up with the perfect house. Th is whole experience has been crazy with many highs and lows. However, you were always there for us (even when I told you that I would have cut us lose if I were you!) You have been our agent but also our advisor, confidant and friend. We are so happy that you were the one to guide us through this journey. You are a wonderful person and we truly loved working with you. I will tell anyone who will listen what an amazing job you and your terrific team do for your clients. Hopefully, I will have many opportunities to refer you in the future. We want to make sure you come and visit once the renovations are complete. I'm saving you a poolside seat and a cocktail!

Aside from our business relationship, I want you to know that you've made friends with the Patent family for life” Read More ▾

‟Dear Paula, Miss Manners says that thank-you notes should be handwritten, but I'm violating her rule so you do not have to laboriously decipher my handwriting. I cannot thank you, as well as your entire Home Team, enough for your collective hard work on my behalf.  This deal simply would not have happened with any other agent and team.  You h elped draft the contract addendum.  You suggested the attorney review.  You had the power and persuasiveness to finalize my agreement of sale.  And finally, you paid the seller's expense at settlement -- out of your own pocket -- to ensure that the seller would not default on the contract at settlement. The only way I can repay you is to praise you and your team to anyone who will listen.  That is what I have already started to do.  I know your business relies heavily on your good reputation, and I am hoping I can help you in that way. Paula, you had mentioned at settlement that you would like to treat Aleck and me to dinner.  I appreciate your offer so much, but you've taken such a financial beating on this deal that I would feel guilty letting you incur yet another expense on my behalf. Please do not feel obligated to do this, even if you normally treat your clients. Your team showed its spirit and determination from the time of my first offer through our parting hugs at settlement.  Again, I thank you all. With warm regards, Beth Anne Begg” Read More ▾

You all made our transition so easy.  I can't thank you enough.  And Paula:  Ed was wonderful, just like you said.  Have a great summer and I hope to stop in and see all of you real soon.  And again, thank you.

‟Dear Paula, Now that out two transactions are completed, I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for the absolutely first rate service we received.  We've bought and sold several houses over the years and we can honestly say that working with you was our best real estate experience ever. We were concerned when we listed our house for sale that it would take a long time to sell in this sluggish market.  I remember you saying that it would be sold within 2 months.  It sold in one!  This just underscored for us your knowledge of the Margate market, ability to market our house, and your skill in setting the right price. We were equally impressed by your tenacity in helping us secure our current house.  You managed the negotiation process with great skill and secured a price that was fair for buyer and seller alike.  Once again your encyclopedic knowledge of the Margate market and your focus on the task at hand were the critical success factors. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how smooth the closings for both transactions proceeded.  Please thank Annamarie for us for managing the closings with great efficiency and skill. Based on our experience, we would never consider using anyone else for our Margate real estate needs.  I hope you will use us as references going forward” Read More ▾

‟The Hartman Hometeam, and specifically my agent Brian Hiltner, are without a doubt the firm you should choose if buying/selling a home in Atlantic County. Brain and his team made the process of purchasing my family home very simple when it could have been an outright mess. As a practicing real estate attorney, I tend to be a little picky when it co mes to choosing an agent to act on my behalf during what amounts to one of the most important choices in my life. Despite my many concerns, Brian was extremely helpful, diligent and patient during my nearly two year search for a home. Brian's knowledge of the local conditions were second to none. His sophistication with providing the necessary guidance during every stage of a residential transaction like mine was far more than I expected to receive. I, without hesitation, would recommend Brian and the Hartman Home Team for all your real estate needs” Read More ▾

Brian

Buyer/Seller
‟I had the assistance of Paula in purchasing and selling a home. I had previously tried numerous very qualified/friendly agents and had no success in finding the home I sought or selling the one I owned. Paula and her team took the time to understand what I wanted in a new home, why I needed it, what was not working in my current home, and spent the time to explain the market for my then current home. She was masterful at being a duel agent representing both the seller and the buyers as she was able to bring market data to the discussion so both parties could make well informed decisions.  Communication is key in either the process of selling or buying a home. Paula has an office of people who take great pride in being informed and ensuring accurate and detailed follow up is a priority. Her efforts in the process created not only sound real estate transactions, but also created lasting friendships between buyers and sellers. Truly a unique experience I would certainly be willing to undertake again in the future with Paula and her team should I decide to move or make additional investment” Read More ▾

‟Dear Paula, Sondra and I wanted to take this opportunity to express our thanks for the great job you did in helping us with the purchase of our condominium in Margate. We are extremely pleased with the purchase and have you to thank for it. The service you provided throughout the entire transaction was tremendous.  Since we were back in the P hiladelphia area and unavailable for many of the inspections and other issues, you gladly took over and dealt with the contractors, renters, and anything else we asked of you.  You recommended and made arrangements with excellent contractors who completed some of the work in our property.  We were both very impressed how you stayed on top of every detail until the work was completed.  From the moment we met at one of your open houses, you were professional and went out of your way to accommodate our schedule.  We could not ask for more in dealing with a Real Estate professional. Your knowledge of the Margate market also enabled us to make a very wise purchase. I recommend you to my brothers who were trying to rent their home in Margate and you also handled this situation promptly and thoroughly.  They were also impressed with how willing you were to assist with other details in getting the property ready for the new tenants. We really appreciate everything you have done for us and how well you handled our transaction from negotiation of the agreement to settlement as well as the outstanding issues after the sale was completed.  We are quite comfortable recommending you to our friends and family.  Please feel free to use us as reference for any of your current or future customers.

What a woman!  She pulled off what 5 men could not do and made it look easy all the way.  Incredible. You are lucky to be able do business with her.  Hopefully she handles many of your mor tgage transactions. If she can adeptly handle a “tricky” mortgage like mine, she must do the routine mortgages with lightening speed! I know that you easily could have given up on us and probably sold that house to any number of people. But I also know you have way too much character and integrity to do something like that. I am honored to know you and blessed to have you in my corner. I realize this process is not over yet.  We may have the mortgage “in the bag” but we have to secure a HELOC as well. There will be time for that on Friday. For tonight and tomorrow, while I am counting my blessings and giving thanks for all that I’ve been given. You will be at the top of my list.

From the moment I called your office to inquire about a listing I viewed on the web, I was directed to Ashley. I knew immediately that I was with the right agent who would serve my needs. Ashley was professional, and eager to answer my questions. She se t up an appointment to show the property that same day and was right on time. I have worked with dozens of agents throughout my lifetime, however Ashley stands alone amongst the rest. Ashley's caring nature, personality, consciousness and attention to detail surely promises her a very bright future in the real estate business. Keep in mind that this experience was only a rental, I was treated by Ashley in the same manner as if I were buying a property. I will be referring any and all persons to Ashley in the future.
