What My Clients Say


‟Dear Paula and the Hartman Team, Thank you in such a special way. We certainly hope that you get the listing. We have walked past the house many times and it is incredible. We have enjoyed meeting you and working with you and we can't wait to see you at the awards ceremony on Tuesday. Fondly, Judy and Lisa Getson”

‟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 ▾

Greco Family



‟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 ▾


‟Dear Paula, Thanks so much to you and your associates for the wonderful handling of the sale of my condominium.  You made it totally effortless for me from the listing to the settlement.  And you can imagine my delight when only five days after listing, you brought me two offers, one of which exceeded the list price.  Thanks again. Sincerely, Dr. Stanley Golebur” Read More ▾
