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 Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista, Philadelphia, PA.
Jeff was a great representative and we recommend him without reservation! He was helpful at every step of the way and we felt very well represented throughout the process. We got a fair price on our home and he handled all the logistics masterfully.

Sold a home in 2009.
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 Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K 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.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Fairmount-Spring Garden, Philadelphia, PA.
I hired Jeff "City" Block to sell my brother's condo after he passed away. It is difficult to express my gratitude to him and his staff for the professionalism, dedication, and compassion they showed me during a difficult and confusing time. Jeff and his team worked fast to get the place on the market at a competitive price. They marketed it well, had lots of showings and sold it quickly at a price we were quite happy with. In addition to getting the place sold at a good price in a timely manner, Jeff and his staff were easy to work with, left no detail untended and were great communicators. Selling a property from several hundred miles away is a bit unnerving, but the City Block team kept me well informed and were always responsive. It was a pleasure to work with them and I recommend them highly to anyone looking to sell property in the Philadelphia area.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista, Philadelphia, PA.
Jeff is honest in his approach to real estate, helping a buyer balance her wish list with her budget and helping a seller understand what is reasonable to expect when selling her home. Jeff and his team are extremely well-connected in the Philadelphia region, making it easy for their clients to navigate the processes of buying and selling and all related activities. Jeff Block knows Philadelphia better than anyone. I have referred several people in the past and will continue to do so.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in University City, Philadelphia, PA.
We had a great experience with Jeff. He helped us buy a house in the University City (West Philadelphia near U.Penn) in 2006, and then sell the same in 2012. In seeking out the house initially, he took us around Center City until he realized that what we were looking for was not in CC but rather in UC. We found an amazing house -- 1899 construction but fully gutted and modernized -- for a good price and were very happy. Jeff soon moved to the neighborhood. By the time we were ready to sell, he helped us position it appropriately, and did a fine job getting us a price that worked.
