Team reviews

I am at a loss for words, Jeff "city" Block and the city block team preformed something that I could not even conceive, I did not think my house would sell, let alone so fast and for so much. My situation was not a normal real estate sale, Jeff and his team are truly dedicated and a credit to the profession. The extent of detail in how they handing my unique situation could not have been done just any other Realtor, I would have never conceived my property would be sold in 27 days on the market in the coldest of winters with not heat in the property and it settled 45 days later. I am so grateful to Jeff and his team for a job well done. as Jeff said, " I seem to attract the toughest real estate sales, cause we can make it happen"

Sold a Multi Family home in 2015 in Cedar Park, Philadelphia, PA.

Jeff advised us to lower the price of our property to $375,000. We refused and got $392,000 almost immediately. Both he and his assistant, Sue, consistently failed to return calls or deal with any problems. His preliminary Settlement sheet charged us for three utilities that were our tenants' responsibility, and when we called about this, we received a ridiculous from him. (The charges were removed at settlement.) Another bill that we had paid in advance for the year was also ignored by Jeff and had to be corrected at settlement. He showed up over 20 minutes late for settlement, no apology, and spent the majority of his time there ignoring us and dealing with other matters on his cell phone. The settlement changed by over $500 in our favor, no thanks to Jeff. The buyers and their agent were lovely. Do yourself a favor, get a different agent.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $1.225M in Center City West, Philadelphia, PA.

I'm so glad I chose Jeff Block to sell my home. He helped pick the right price for a house with few comparables, marketed it intensely and it sold very quickly. The process was smooth from start to finish and Jeff and his staff were extremely responsive and helpful. I would recommend him and choose him again without hesitation.

Sold a home in 2014 in Cobbs Creek, Philadelphia, PA 19143.

Jeff and his staff were great to work with.  Jeff gave us very good advice as to the pricing, staging and listing of our home as well as during the negotiations with our buyer.  His staff was very responsive to our questions which resulted in a smooth closing process for us.  We’d highly recommend him.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Center City West, Philadelphia, PA.

Jeff was a great agent in a difficult market. He tried to figure out our preferences and advised us honestly on the pros and cons of the different houses. We ended up buying a rehab property from a private seller that we had to finance with a construction loan. Jeff was very flexible in accommodating that special situation and was instrumental in writing up the sales contract that provided us with the flexibility required to make it all the way to settlement. The loan process with our bank turned out to be challenging. Jeff patiently provided us with guidance that made all the difference when it came to making difficult decisions. Jeff was very knowledgeable about the market. We highly recommend him to anyone trying to buy a home in Philadelphia.

Sold a home in 2009 in Center City West, Philadelphia, PA 19146.

Jeff Block has been an excellent realtor for me, and I would not hesitate to use him again. Selling my home through Jeff Block was truly an excellent experience. Jeff was extremely knowledgeable of the neighborhood where I was selling, well prepared, professional, and was available for me whenever I had any questions. He put me at ease during the entire selling process as I knew I was in excellent hands, and he had my best interests in mind.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Fairmount-Spring Garden, Philadelphia, PA.

We have had the pleasure of working with Jeff and his team for both the purchase (as first time home buyers) and the sale of our home in Center City. Jeff's knowledge of the city and guidance during each process was invaluable, while the support of his team made each transaction seamless. Despite being remotely located (in another state) for both the purchase and the sale of our home, we felt we got a superior level of service. Jeff is accessible, straight forward, and collaborative in ensuring that we felt comfortable in the way in which we were approaching each transaction and that we were meeting our goals. We highly recommend Jeff for all of your real estate needs in the Philadelphia area.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 in Pennsport-Whitman-Queen, Philadelphia, PA.

Jeff has been our exclusive agent in Center City for the past 7 years. His masterful knowledge of the marketplace, combined with his no-nonsense approach to pricing, makes him an ideal agent. I would and often do recommend Jeff to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Philadelphia.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Schuylkill Southwest, Philadelphia, PA.

We selected Jeff as our agent to sell our Graduate Hospital condo based on several criteria:

- his reputation from longstanding friends who had either personal or secondhand experience working with him on deals;

- seeing multiple “For Sale” signs for Jeff in our neighborhood and directly adjacent (e.g. west of Broad and both north and south of South)

- his expertise with the University City market and the hope that he might suggest Graduate Hospital as an alternate for individuals interested in buying there;

- his responsiveness to voicemails/e-mails before we were signed on as clients;

- his ability to provide guidance (especially when considering multiple offers), as well as his candor by not being a “yes-man” but instead telling us when he disagreed with our impressions/ assessments on items;

- his and his team's flawless execution of all details when we were under contract.

In short, Jeff just did a great job for us and we're pleased to recommend him to others.
