"Manny was an excellent realtor to work with. He kept me up to date with all the info I needed to know in successfully selling my home. He was very professional and easy to talk to. Manny sold our home quickly and I recommend him to anyone if you're looking for a realtor to sell your home."
-S. Fedorek, Client
"Seniors looking for a senior friendly home. Manny was the best agent. After dealing with other agents, his knowledge and professionalism could not be beat. He found us the ideal house in a very short time. It was as if he knew exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend Manny."
-M. Mitchell, Client
""Mr. Fisher was the main reason we bought the house we did. He was, by far, the best part of shopping and then purchasing our home. He was always available to answer our calls. When we became frustrated with the loan process (a part of the buying experience he is not ordinarily a part of) he became the mediator for us in order to eliminate that stress as much as possible from our lives. We were moving from Florida to Pennsylvania at the same time that my husband was starting a new job so anything to relieve stress was more then appreciated. He not only was someone we would want to work with again in the future but someone we would hope to have as a friend.""
-T & L Sisto, Client
""The night before the close of our mt.pleasant home I got a call from Manny informing me the buyers wonted some furniture removed before we proceed with the sale. I was able to remove it and the sale went on uninterrupted, but not before Manny offered to move all of the furniture, himself, without cost to me. This is just one example. This is the kind of man you want selling your house. This man; Informative, Knowledgeable, Professional, willing to go above and beyond for you. A pro. Thanks for everything Manny." "
-S. Hutchinson, Client
""Manfred goes out of his way to make sure that you buying experience is painless and enjoyable. He is the best real estate broker I have ever worked with.""
-N & R Raiff, Client
""Manny is very responsive and dedicated to his clients. I have dealt with him on three different occasions. First was to find a primary living place for me in which we looked at over 30 sites in which he sent me information. Second a house to flip where we looked at 15 houses in one day. Third currently helping my parents purchase a second property where the closing date keeps being pushed back by the current owner by mistakes made by the owner and making sure he has all his paperwork and proper extensions in place.""
-G. Raiff, Client
""Manny made finding and purchasing our first home such a pleasurable experience! We have always heard horror stories about buying a home, but Manny made the process so painless. He explained everything to us in detail, was incredible during our negotiations, and was always available if we had a question." "
-K & C Wike, Client
""Manny did a great job assisting us with our search and purchase. He attentive and patient. He went out of his way to help us with the process which was more difficult given we live out of state. I would definitly recommend him!""
-K. Flaherty, Client
""Manny was great to work with. He always explained our options but let us make final decisions in both the purchase of our new home and sale of our old home. He was patient and level headed in dealing with delays in the sale of our old home, even taking on work that was the buyer agents responsibility, just to get us to closing day. We highly recommend Manny to anyone looking for a buying or selling agent.""
