Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Colonie, NY.
Dennis helped me find my first home and was very knowledgeable about the odds and ends that you wouldn't think about. When it came to the paperwork and negotiations Dennis was very quick to respond and to get the paperwork done. When it came to the closing Dennis was quick to set up the walk-thru of the home and to make sure that it was left in the condition that it was at the time of our viewing. As for the actual closing with the bank he was there when the other realtor for the sellers were not.
All in all Dennis was very honest and did not try to hide things just to make a sale. He was there for me from the initial phone call about wanting to searching for a home all the way to picking up the keys at closing. I highly recommend Dennis for any real estate needs.

Dennis was very attentive to us as a seller and he put together a beautiful panoramic view of our home. His expertise was impressive as he sold our home in less than 24 hours!! We enjoyed having him as our realtor!!

My husband & I hired Mr. Dennis Maier of Real Estate New York Group to help us both sell & buy a home. He was successful in helping us do both and really facilitated the process for us at every end.
Dennis is an articulate gentleman who has extensive knowledge of the real estate market. He gave us sound advice on how we could market our home most effectively to appeal to prospective buyers, and as a result, we were able to locate a buyer in just 3 short weeks in an area that generally is not considered a hot market for buyers. At the same time, a beautiful home that went on the market at a lower than market value price could have been snatched from under us, but Dennis quickly scheduled us to view the home and wasted no time in helping us put forth a reasonable offer. Ultimately, we got the home, and in rare fashion, we were able to move from our old home into our new home with fairly exceptional ease. Dennis is responsive, professional, and a sheer pleasure to work with. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality agent who is passionate about his job and puts your needs always first.
Dennis help us find a new home and with the rental of our existing home. In both cases he provided prrofessional and responsive service. We had very paticular requirements for our new home and he patiently met with us on short notice visiting dozens of homes, never pressuring us and always adding his expert advice. Dennis also went out of his way to assist us with the rental of our previous home; taking photographs, updating the web site, even cleaning the windows himeslf! We were extreemly happy with Dennis and will definately retain his services in the future if we ever have to move again.
Dennis helped us buy our first home and now is helping us sell it. He also helped us buy our current home. Dennis is knowledgable, professional and thorough. I would highly recommend Dennis without reservation to anyone buying or selling.

I'd hire Dennis Maier in a second if I found myself in need of a real estate agent again, either to sell or to buy. And he's the first I recommend to friends (who are still my friends!) Dennis knows the nuances of the local markets, he does his homework (and makes sure I do mine), he goes out of his way to understand what the client needs, and he excels in coaching that delicate dance between chasing pipe dreams and maintaining a grip on reality. Dennis helped me to figure out what immediate attention my house needed to appeal to potential buyers, how to make it stand out in a crowded market, and he got me the price I needed in a short time frame. He also worked closely with me through every detail and confusing step of the selling process to make sure everything happened when and how it was supposed to happen.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Berne, NY.
Dennis put in a lot of effort in getting a challenging house sold and I appreciate his knowledge, effort and expertise and would recommend him highly.
Dennis was able to publicize the house to a variety of both mocal and non-local potential buyers. We had many showings of the house, and at least two appropriate bids, which Dennis negotiated with different realtors in my best interest. There were some specific problems which he had to deal with, and negotiate with the clients and their realtors, which he was able to handle, and engage in a compromise which was appropriate, such as dealing with a leaky roof,

I found Dennis through my Mom who had purchased her home a year ago. After watching him help her through the stressful home buying process, my Mom's purchase was a particularly challenging one, it was a "no brainer" to go with Dennis for my home as well.
Dennis not only assists you in finding the home you are looking for, he also provides valuable information about the home even if it is not good news, for example making you aware of a potentially expensive repair. He's not in this for a quick sale. He's in this to help people get the best option using his years of experience dealing in real estate.
One thing that was very helpful to me was his communication. He is always on top of things and reaches out to you to check in, even if there isn't any new information. He makes you feel that you are not forgotten about and reassured that things are moving along the best they can.
It's a shame I'm only planning on buying one home because I'd love to work with him again.
I had an opportunity to buy a home through Albany County Rural Housing Authority. I spoke with a few real estate reps who just wanted to make a sale and didn't have my best interest in mind. Fortunately I found Dennis Maier who directed me to my present home where I am extremely happy!. His expertise in all aspects of real estate guided me through a very difficult and lengthy process in purchasing my home as I was working with a grant and had to meet many stipulations in order to qualify.
I could always rely on Dennis not only for his knowledge and tough negotiation skills, but he was also reassuring and confident, even making me smile through frustration in dealing with banks, other real estate reps and contracts. Being a widow I am very thankful and appreciative of his help.
My daughter was just as impressed with Dennis and she and her husband recently bought their first home with Dennis' assistance. Although their purchase was fairly straight forward, Dennis' expertise got them to closing!
Dennis handled our home sale in a professional and capable manner. He has an excellent knowledge of new technologies, finding a buyer through his well established internet networks. We never experienced a problem contacting him, he was always available and ready to help. All questions were answered. His expertise in local market conditions informed us that the offer we accepted was the best possible. He did a superb job at shepherding the deal from offer to closing. He is now helping us find a new home.
