Ratings & Reviews

While searching for the right piece of property to build our dream timberframe home, I came across Gary’s number. Since I have always loved the Boston-Colden area, I thought he may be of some help finding a picturesque piece of property, so I called him. <br/><br/>On my first conversation with him, he seemed to really understand what I was looking for. He told me that he was working on a listing and described the property to me – sounded perfect. There was only one small problem, the owner was out of the country, and he was waiting for their return. A period of time went by and I didn’t hear from him, so I figured that the deal just never materialized.<br/><br/>We kept looking and found a great piece of property which we purchased with another realtor who was a friend of the family. About two weeks after purchasing I got a call from Gary, who said that the owner had finally returned and wanted him to list the property.<br/><br/>I just had this gut feeling that we needed to see this property, so after much convincing to my husband, we met Gary in person and walked the property. We instantly fell in love and knew it was the right spot, so needless to say – we purchased it and then sold our first purchase.<br/><br/>We’ve been in our home for over 10 years now and absolutely love the location. It was everything he told us and more.<br/><br/>Within the last year we had to sell a family member’s home, so again I contacted Gary. This deal was also smooth, quick and effortless with his expertise in real estate. His laid back personality, honesty and experience are THE BEST. <br/><br/>I highly recommend Gary for any listing or purchase, and can honestly tell you that it will be a great and pleasant experience. Thanks again Gary! ?

Bought a home in 2003.

While searching for the right piece of property to build our dream timberframe home, I came across Gary’s number. Since I have always loved the Boston-Colden area, I thought he may be of some help finding a picturesque piece of property, so I called him.

On my first conversation with him, he seemed to really understand what I was looking for. He told me that he was working on a listing and described the property to me – sounded perfect. There was only one small problem, the owner was out of the country, and he was waiting for their return.

We kept looking and found a great piece of property which we purchased with another realtor who was a friend of the family. About two weeks after purchasing I got a call from Gary, who said that the owner had finally returned and wanted him to list the property.

I just had this gut feeling that we needed to see this property, so after much convincing to my husband, we met Gary in person and walked the property. We instantly fell in love and knew it was the right spot, so needless to say – we purchased it and then sold our first purchase.

We’ve been in our home for over 10 years now and absolutely love the location. It was everything he told us and more.

Within the last year we had to sell a family member’s home, so again I contacted Gary. This deal was also smooth, quick and effortless with his expertise in real estate. His laid back personality, honesty and experience are THE BEST.

I highly recommend Gary for any listing or purchase, and can honestly tell you that it will be a great and pleasant experience. Thanks again Gary! ?

Sold a home in 2013 for approximately $300K.

After interviewing a number of realtors who all expressed our financial expectations were unreasonable, we finally listed our home in the Town of Boston with Gary. It was an unusual piece of property in that the property consisted of a house with 25 acres and we were uncertain as to how to divide the property to maximize our sale price. Gary analyzed the survey maps, walked the property several times-- measuring frontage, back acreage, etc. Gary did a fantastic job defining 4 potential parcels - 3 vacant lots and 1 parcel with the home. Within 3 days of listing, we had 2 potential buyers and received a full price purchase offer for the parcel with the home, but, this was not good enough for Gary! He worked with both potential buyers to reconfigure the property to satisfy both of their requirements and were able to sell all 4 parcels at a price that exceeded our expectations. Gary went above and beyond closing the sale.

Sold a home in 2012 in Glenwood, Boston, NY 14033.

Based on Eckis Realty's reputation in and around the Town of Boston I listed three parcels with his office of approx. 15 acres each. His knowledge,experience and availability to potential buyers was excellent. He also took the time to know the boundaries and walk the property with anyone who requested. He is very knowledgeable about the required paperwork as well. It was an overall excellent experience.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Canyon Creek, Richardson, TX.

I live in another State and had 50 acres of undeveloped raw land in New York. I contacted Gary Eckis who turned out to be one of the finest Real Estate Agents that I have ever worked with. Gary listed the property and had the first offer on the first day with the second offer coming in immediately afterwards. The property sold at almost 15% above the asking price. Gary coordinated all of the factors involved in the sale. I did not have to worry about any New York State requirements as he had intimate knowledge of what was necessary. I wish I had more NY land for him to sell!

Sold a home in 2014.

I purchased my 100 acre property from Eckis Realty 3 years ago and was impressed with his organization and knowledge. last month I listed the same property with Gary, we picked a price, listed, and sold the property, all very quickly and effeciently. All parties are happy with the deal. I recommend Eckis to anyone interested in buying or selling in Western New York.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Corfu, NY.

About 4 years ago, I needed to sell my 2 year old house on Indian Falls Lake in Corfu, New York. I initially listed the house with another agency and for almost one year had no success in selling the house despite lowering the price several times. After the contract with the initial agency expired I contacted Gary and within 3 weeks he had sold my home for the price I was asking.

During the entire sales process Gary worked with the both the buyer and attorneys from both sides to insure that the sale went smoothly and without a hitch. He always was very eager to help and was very professional during the whole process.

I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a house in the Western New York area

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Boston, NY.

I was thinking about selling my farm in Boston NY about 5 years ago and called Eckis Realty to discuss my options. Finally in 2011 I decided to sell. My property was divided into two large pieces of land, the North side of Boston Colden Road had approx. 50 acres and the South side of the road had approx. 72 acres. Long story short, we ended up selling to four different buyers and at the same time, my wife and I had just made an offer on a home and property in Tennesse. I had applied and was approved for a 1031 exchange however, the key to that was that three properties had to close before 10/1/12 to meet the 1031 guidelines. Gary worked his magic through phone calls with his clients, attorneys, utility companies, etc., etc., to close the deals and meet the dates and make our dreams come true regarding the closing of our Tennessee home. The most professional business experience I have ever had. Thanks again Gary !!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Hamburg, NY.

Gary Eckis represented me in the sale of my home a little over a year ago. He is extremely knowledgeable and very communicative. Gary kept the sales process moving and not only had a great rapport with me, but also with the buyers. He is fair on all sides. Gary does not just talk to his clients. He rolls his sleeves up, and puts his boots on to get into every nook of the home so he knows the house he is selling, and he completely walks the property. Gary is easily reachable any time you have a question. There is always an immediate response via phone call, email or a visit in person. He is a great manager of the sales process and of one of your most valuable assets-your house!!!
