Team reviews

We used Michele and Andrea to help sell the house. We thought they were a good choice since they said all the right things, promised all the right things and they said they worked as a team, so they would be responsive. They were so fakingly sweet, that I just chalked it up to the salesperson attitude. If they could sell the house - I could tolerate the salesperson speak. Little did I know. However when push comes to shove, we started to question their loyalty and what they would actually do and say to make the sale. For example, during the closing and the contract, they tried to give improper legal advice just to push the sale through quicker, which thank goodness my attorney steered me back on the right and legal track. They just kept making statements about the sale and the circumstances of the sale which made me continue to question their loyalty to us who retained them and the accurateness of what they were saying. It seemed they were more interested in pushing the sale through than telling us the whole truths.<br/><br/>The last straw was when we didn't hear from them for days after trying to call and waiting for an answer regarding the final inspection. Finally, we found out that the buyer told them to not stay out of it. They were supposed to be our agents (the sellers) and yet they were taking directions from the buyers? We asked that they stay in it and coordinate. I guess I was naive into thinking that since we hired them to help us sell the house that they would be loyal and take direction from the people who hired them. Ooops...was not the case here. <br/><br/>The other people who gave them 5 stars? Maybe they had a better and more honest experience with them - but our experience was horrible. My advice is PLEASE FIND SOMEONE ELSE!!!

Showed home in 2011 in Locust Grove, Syosset, NY 11791.

This might too early of a stage to give reviews. But I am truly impressed by their professionalism and responsiveness even during the holidays. I am looking forward to working with them on finding my new home.

There is no real estate brokers like Andrea Costello and Michelle Gort. Not only are they professional, dedicated and committed but they are kind and supportive. Selling a house is an emotional time for most and they manage to get you the most money for your house while making you feel like you found a best friend. Do yourself a favor, use Michelle and Andrea!

Sold a home in 2011.

From the moment I met Michele and Andrea, I knew that they were kind, caring,knowledgeable and professional. They take pride in doing their very best. Michele and Andrea not only sold my home but helped me purchase a new one as well. They worked tirelessly throughout the entire process (from inspections to mortgages, even moving men)including phone calls which are too numerous to mention. Their dedication, responsiveness and attention to detail was incredible.This was a truly stressful time and they made me feel confident and relaxed throughout. What impressed me the most was their honesty and integrity. They take their job seriously and are truly dedicated professionals. I would undoubtedly recommend them without hesitation. Choosing to work with Michele and Andrea was the best decision I could have made and am very pleased with the outcome-for both buying and selling my home.

Bought a home in 2009 in Woodbury, NY 11797.

Michele and Andrea were fabulous to work with. They know the area like the back of their hands and more importantly, they took the time to know us and understand what was important to my family as we searched for our first home. They will never waste your time or pressure you into anything that doesn't feel right. I would only recommend them to use - we refer EVERYONE to this team. They are awesome and we are thrilled with where we landed. They walked us through every step of becoming a new homeowner!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Valley Stream, NY.

I purchased my beautiful splanch home with Michele Gort and I was very pleased with her overall approach to selling me a home. She was not only knowledgable, but she was patient and took much time to allow me to find what I was really looking for. Ms. Gort was available to me from beginning to end: she was even there for the engineer inspection. When I called her (and I called rather often) she was available and pleasant. Michele even offered me some decorating tips that have helped me make my house a true home. I highly recommend Michele Gort for all of your home buying needs.

Andrea and Michelle are professional, hard working, great negotiators, and knowledgable. We felt like they really listened to what type of home we were looking for and worked in a very timely manner to help us find a home that exceeded our expectations. They also helped us negotiate a fair price while maintaining a high degree of integrity. I would highly recommend using them.
