Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $50K in Lancaster, PA.

There are few people in the world trust worthy enough to rely on when it comes to the big decisions of buying and selling homes. I'm extremely busy and Alan made the process of buying a rental property about as seemless as possible. He kept me focused on what we needed to get accomplished and was relentless with negotiations. I wouldn't just recommend Alan Cherkin and his staff as far as buying and selling real estate, I acknowledge him as a trusted advisor and leader in the industry. You can tell that with Alan it isn't just about making a sale. It is about working hard to meet the goals of his clients. The customer service provided by his staff, Rhonda, Peggy and others was something that is such a joy to work with that I know I'm not going anywhere else in the near future. Thanks for all your help and I look forward to doing business soon.

Sold a home in 2014 in Deodate, Elizabethtown, PA 17022.

I always enjoyed viewing Alan's marketing techniques so when it came time to sell my home I chose him. He listed it and had multiple offers within a week. It seemed all so easy. We accepted the best offer and started the process. Well it was not easy, there were many issues that needed to battled through. Alan and his office manager Rhonda hung in at every obstacle thrown our way and led this to a successful close.

I confidently provide the highest of recommendations for Alan H. Cherkin and his dedicated professional team.

I had a home for sale. Alan worked both with the buyer as well as well as the bank. He was VERY persistent about getting things done. I live out of state, and he saved me the hassle of driving back and forth. I would HIGHLY recommend him to ANYONE!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $150K in Lancaster, PA.

Was supposed to help me find a house and I ended up finding it on my own, because the one he will send someone to show me were the one he likes not the one I liked. So I kept looking on my own and find the one I like but that he never suggested but since we still had a contract with him he ended up getting his money without doing anything. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Lancaster, PA.

I worked with Allan Cherkin in 2009 & 2012 to purchase the investment property. His in-depth knowledge in Real Estate and expertise in the closing process aided his ability in targeting my wish list and helped me to find the absolute most for my budget. I am very impressed with his negotiating skills. I don’t hesitate to recommend him as your agent.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2010 for approximately $75K in Lancaster, PA.

I asked Alan Cherkin to find me an investment property. I found Alan very knowledgable in lancaster County real estate. Alan found me a property for 70,000 dollars and with 8,000 of work my property is worth 125,000 dollars. This is the best investment I made. Alan got me maximum seller help and an incredible price. I have bought many homes over the last 10 years and this the best one i have purchased. Personally i recommend Alan H Cherkin to anyone buying or selling. No one advertises as much as alan as well.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $150K in Landisville, PA.

Alan listed and sold my house several years ago. Here are couple things you can defintely expect.

1. He will try to strong arm you into a couple things, a long term contract (a year or more) He will also lobby hard for more than the standard 6%. In my case he did back down on both. Be aware.

2. He will not do open houses. To quote him "they are a waste of time" I ended up doing the showings myself to multiple people including the eventual buyer

3. He will do a good job of advertising.

Sold a home in 2011 in Grantville, East Hanover, PA 17028.

My elderly Mother decided she could no longer care for her property and asked for my help to find a realator to sell her property. Since I lived out of town I was in the dark as to who I should contact. I surfed the internet. Alan Cherkin Realtor stood out. His web site seemed professionally put together and the contacts he is associated with was very highly impressive. It seemed to me could reach out and do the very best for selling this property. I met with Alan to veiw the empty property and he had no doubt that this property would sell. He was most kind and upfront with suggestions to help sell the property. Mother signed a contract and off we went. Alan and his staff were very professional.That was the easy part. My Mother is very hard of hearing, very stubborn, humorous, and doesn't budge on anything, so you can imagine. Alan and I had our work cut out for us. She'd agree to things then she said she didn't say that. We always had a third party line for our conversations. Alan was very very patient with her. He worked endless hours to make the buyer and seller happy. Believe me, he did. He had always returned my calls in a timely matter and always had an answer or an avenue to resource to. His energy seemed endless. I would highly recommend Alan Cherkin Realtor to purchase or sell a property. I live in the Hershey area, and if I ever plan to sell, I will most definitly give Alan the respect he deserves to be the one to list my property. Don't let this one slip by. Thank You Alan for your professionalism. Mary & Vickie Furlow
