Bought a home in 2014 in Fairmount-Spring Garden, Philadelphia, PA 19130.
Ian made the whole process of buying home as a first time home buyer very smooth. He personalized the whole experience for me by ensuring I search and evaluate homes based on my goals and preferences. As my buying agent he took great care of ensuring my interests are taken care of during the home shopping, decision making, negotiating, financing and closing phases. Surprisingly he also recommended me against buying certain over-priced properties despite his conflict of interest. It also helps that he is a jovial guy with good sense of humor! I'd recommend to my friends without any reservations.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Pennsport-Whitman-Queen, Philadelphia, PA.
Ian was very responsive and always on top of things. I was a first time home buyer and he always took the time to explain documents or processes and what was required. He stayed on top of the selling agent and negotiated a great deal for me. Thanks to his hard work, I'm now in a great home for a great price!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Upper Darby, PA.
To be honest I don't even know how to start to explain how what could have been quite possibly the most stressful and difficult experience in my life was made incredibly easy and virtually stress free by the service Ian had provided for me. This was my first house, so in turn my first home buying experience. Now to be honest while deciding on buying a home I had to consider the fact that I am young so being taking serious in my endeavors is also an obstacle, with Ian it was not. He always treated me with respect and courtesy. He understood that I had a million and a half question every step of the way and was patient and understanding. He made sure I understood everything that was going on. His knowledge and expertise of this business gave me piece of mind every step of the way. Even when I would worry and start to panic he always had the answer. When things felt like they were dragging along he would be there to tell me why and why I shouldn't worry. There was never a time that I felt like he wasn't there if I needed to talk. With Ian I didn't just get a agent to assist me I got a friend to help me. I don't know how I would have done it with out him. And everyday I wake up in my new home with my family I think of just how great he really is.

Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Poplar-Ludlow-Yorktowne, Philadelphia, PA.
Working with Mr. Perler was an excellent experience. He was the definition of professional. Not only did he find me and my prospective roommates a long, detailed list of properties that were in accordance with our living situation, but he even was able to modify our selections and help us find new ones when the original ones we had chosen did not pan out. He was extremely helpful in finding us the best deal, and we would most certainly not have ended up where we are without his help. He has an extensive knowledge of the city and its various neighborhoods, and got back to me with responses in a very punctual and timely fashion. I would reccomend him as a realtor to anyone I know.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Germantown, Philadelphia, PA.
Ian is a great guy, who is very diligent with his work. He is always on time and was great in showing us a variety of house around Philly. He is also enjoyable to be around and knowledgeable about neighborhood trends as well as quality houses. He is always responsive you phone calls and emails which is a huge plus with a real estate agent.
After the buying process began, Ian worked hard to get the best deal possible. Closing was an issue, but as a new home buyer it was not the fault of the buying agent, but that surprises are something that all new home buyers must embrace. All in all, a great choice, and would even consider him a friend.
Ian is very responsive to emails and utilized his contacts to find rentals to show. He was prompt for showings and was helpful in coordinating show times to be conveniently timed during they day. He was most helpful in finding and showing new construction buildings that I was unaware of and would not have been able to view without the help of his brokerage services.
Bought a home in 2012 in Pennsport-Whitman-Queen, Philadelphia, PA 19147.
Ian was professional, patient, and attentive to all of our concerns as my husband and I searched for our first home! He helped us find the perfect home in the neighborhood we wanted to live and then negotiated to make sure it stayed within our budget. We will definitely work with Ian again in the future!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA.
Ian couldn't have been a better agent for my husband and I as first time home buyers. His expertise and knowledge prepared us for every step of the process. We appreciated his patience and willingness to show us through a variety of philadelphia neighborhoods. We are very happy in our new home and highly recommend him. Mr phillyrealestate!
Bought a Condo home in 2012 in Center City West, Philadelphia, PA.
Ian helped us find a center city home in record time. We were very impressed with his consultative approach. He asked great questions to help all of us understand our preferences. He introduced methods and tools to help us compare the homes we looked at (for example, cost per square foot, plus a cost estimator for improvements, compared to estimated market value post improvements, etc.). Post the offer, he made some creative suggestions that helped bring the deal to closure, that would have otherwise been "deal killers". He was always available, even on short notice, and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Ian for all buyers ranging from the sophisticated investor as well as the first time home buyer. We have another property that we will be listing next year and he will certainly get our business.
