Bought a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $275K in Cheltenham, PA.
Bernie Faigenbaum has outstanding real estate expertise. He guided us during our very first real estate transaction in 1990 and then again in 2003. We wouldn't turn to anyone else the next time we look to buy. His legal background in combination with his knowledge of the Philadelphia area real estate market make him a first rate choice.
Bernie came highly recommended from a work associate when I accepted a new job in the Philly area and had to relocate from Chicago. We were purchasing our 5th home so we were not new to the homebuying process and all of the stress that comes with it. Bottom line is that Bernie is the best realtor that I have ever had. His legal (contract expertise) background, market knowledge and negotiation skills were second to none. My wife and I are both engineers so we tend to be very detail oriented and we were impressed by Bernie's attention to detail. His ability to listen and adjust to what our needs were was one of the key attributes that sets him apart from previous realtors (both buying and selling). Finally, we never felt pressured to consider homes only at the top of our budget (highest commision for him), he was truly interested in making sure we found the right home.
Bought a Condo home in 2008 for approximately $375K in Pennsport-Whitman-Queen, Philadelphia, PA.
Bernand helped us find our home in Center City Philadelphia a few years back and his work was absolutely outstanding.
Bernand is very clear and transparent with his clients, showing in a very balanced way the potential upsides and downsides of every property. He is a very good listener and and asks the right questions to really understand what the client wants in a house. He also takes as much time as needed to explain in detail each of the documents we were signing and his background as a lawyers comes in handly when it comes to the negotiation part.
Bernand has a strong work ethic, and he was committed and passionate about finding the right property for us. I recommended Bernard to several of our friends and they were all extremely pleased with his performance.
Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $225K in Ardmore, PA.
Bernie was my buyer's agent in 2006. He helped me buy my first house. There are not enough stars on this form, because 5 are just not enough! Bernie makes you feel as if you are his only client. He listens to what you want/need and he helps you find it. Bernie is not just an incredibly diligent agent, but an incredibly geniune and decent person. The amount of time, research, negotiation, attention to detail, etc., he put into both my house-hunting and my purchase - you would have thought he was representing a million-dollar client. But my house cost less than $225K! He treats everyone equally. How common is that? In my experience, it makes Bernie not only an unusually great agent, but an unusually great person.
My experience using Bernard Faigenbaum as my realtor could not have been better. He deserves the highest scores in all areas listed. I must add that when he assisted me in purchasing my current home, he anticipated issues that I would have considered stressful, and made the entire experience enjoyable.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $475K in Narberth, PA.
Bernard Faigenbaum, or Bernie as we like to call him, was exceptional! I have never met anyone quite as helpful as he was when he helped us purchase our current dwelling. He was very attentive to our needs and concerns, and very efficient and thorough in coming up with a range of alternatives that could fit our needs. He was also perfect in balancing the need for advice from a knowledgeable person and the need to step back and give us space to think through our options (without feeling any pressure at all). This is a first-rate real estate professional whom I would go back to again and again. I recommend his services enthusiastically and without the slightest qualification!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Girard Estates, Philadelphia, PA.

Bernie is very responsive and regardless of the size of the transaction, his approach is always to provide the best service to his client. Bernie's experience and insight has been invaluable to my real estate needs. His background on legal matters is definitely a plus.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Doylestown, PA.
In a very short amount of time Mr.Faigenbaum was able to understand exactly the type of home we were looking for. He was always well prepared and focused, which was most helpful as we were very limited on time.
He also has three children, so as a result he's extremely knowledgeable of school districts. I would highly recommend him, he actually makes searching for a home enjoyable!
