Bought a home in 2014.

As a first time home buyer, my knowledge of what to look for and consider when buying a home was very limited. Recommended to me by a coworker who recently worked with Geoff to buy her first home, I was able to introduce myself and schedule house showings with Geoff in a very timely manner.

Throughout my home buying process, Geoff helped me understand all aspects of purchasing a home with detailed explanations to many of my uncertainties. Albeit my frequent questions and desire to look at a very extensive range of houses in Ledyard, Groton, Gales Ferry, Waterford, and Montville, Geoff demonstrated patience, kindness, and professional behavior every time.

Geoff was very responsive to my requests. 90% of the homes I wished to visit Geoff was able to schedule showings for by the next day or day after. I highly recommend Geoff if you are looking for a professional real estate agent with background experience and friendly service.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in East Lyme, CT.

It was amazing to work with him. He listened to my objectives, directed me towards the services I sought in preparing my house for sale, explained my options. Within 21 hours of him listing my property I received a signed bid above my asking price. He guided me through the negotiating process and represented my interests brilliantly. Sale of property closed in 53 days. Highly recommend his services.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in New London, CT.

Geoff was great in helping me purchase my first home. If I wanted to see a property he would set up a viewing almost immediately. He pointed out potential problems with the house before I noticed them. I'd highly recommend him to anyone purchasing a home, especially if it's your first.

Bought a home in 2013.

Geoff can turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. Good photographer. Will work as a buyers' agent while also working with seller to find them a new property. Does not follow through with seller to insure all items are removed from the property incurring additional clean-up costs to the buyer. Once you sign...caveat emptor !!

Did not respond to my inquiry in Fort Trumbull, New London, CT 06320.

I asked Mr Hausmann about a AS IS property, he quoted a price to our church and then came back with a higher price saying he had made a mistake in the price. It was a $15,000 difference and we had second thoughts on purchasing the property. We will buy the property if we return to the original price,$50,000. We unfortunately have not heard back from the Realtor.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to comment about me. I am sorry for not responding to you as I thought you were no longer interested in the property. The change in price was due to the work that was to be performed on the property. I will contact you directly to assist you with this property that you are questioning. Again thank you for reaching out to me.

Bought a home in 2012.

Geoff was an amazing help to me when I was purchasing my home! He knew the area I was looking in, knew a bunch of people who could help with any problems (contractors, inspectors, plumbers, etc), and also took time to answer any questions that I had, and being a first time home buyer I had a lot! If he didn't know the answer, he made sure to find it. He's very quick in responding to your questions also. Amazing, amazing, amazing! Very, very helpful. I'm very happy with his services.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2011 for approximately $50K in Taftville, CT.

I've used several Realtors in the past. Never have I ever been so impressed with one. He has been living and working in the area for decades. He only concentrates on areas in which he is actually an expert. You know a Realtor has his clients' best interest in mind when he will actually turn down business, if he believes taking it will do the client an injustice. He will not show or list properties he is not familiar with or in neighborhoods that he can not absolutely understand. He comes to showings already having his homework done (looked up taxes, has an idea about insurance or someone with whom to speak, knows a great home inspector, has a property information sheet for your review later, a pen for you to take notes, and even an extra flashlight for the basements/attics).

He can and will walk the first time home buyer through the process, or even help them get ready for the process months-years prior to an actual purchase. Most are only interested in helping those ready to write a big check. Conversely Geoff also has the expertise and experience to guide an advanced real estate investor through the arduous process of finding the right deal. Many investors don't want to pay for the services of a Realtor, but I believe Geoff is worth every penny and then some. He will go out of his way to ask others about potential deals and bring possible solutions to the table, not further problems.

Furthermore, he is the best advocate you could want to have on your side during negotiations. He is honest, fair, and understanding. Geoff's responsiveness was almost frightening. As an internet consumer, I'm used to not hearing back from people for a matter of days, if at all. Usually, I get frustrated enough to complain to anyone willing to listen. When I heard back from him within minutes the first time I left a message I was downright confused.

Geoff Hausmann (The Houseman!) is definitely a real estate professional. His 15+ years of experience in the industry have clearly honed his skills with the transfer of real estate, the process thereof, and especially the people that it affects. I don't really write reviews for people at all, especially good ones. I'm high maintenance and I've been told I'm generally difficult so for me to say this much good about someone, I assure you they are worth the review. If you are interested in buying or selling real estate I encourage you to interview as many Realtors as you wish, as long as you include Geoff in that list, you will end up working with him.

Bottom line: He will exceed your expectations.

Showed home in 2011 in Crescent Beach, Niantic, CT 06357.

Geoff has been the most helpful and conscious agent I have ever met with. Any time I have an inquiry on a property, I am sure that I will get a prompt response from "The Houseman." He has made things possible that I never dream would have been attainable. I look forward to working with Geoff in the future!

Bought a home in 2012.

Geoff recently helped us to find the right condo to purchase for my elderly parents. From the start, he asked all the right questions so that he could understand what type of dwelling and neighborhood we were looking for. He knew that we had limited time to view options as they are relocating from 118 miles away and were in town for just a couple of days. We were also under pressure to find something ideal for them to move into within 6-8 weeks. He did research on our behalf immediately and gave us a sense of our options the day before our meeting. He was very knowledgeable about each listing we saw. In some cases he also offered historical information he was aware of about the complex and area. We were pleased to find our ideal choice among the homes we saw that day, so we made an offer to the seller within 24 hours. At that point we knew we could trust Geoff to take care of many details. By the next day he had drawn up our purchase and sale agreement, got it to the seller, back to us and even forwarded the signed paperwork to our lawyer. He was familiar with our lawyer and the bank representative we were working with. He also helped us secure an inspector within the same week. He offered his knowledge on home repair values; this assured us that our negotiated price was appropriate. The most impressive thing about Geoff is his dedication. He is serious about helping his clients and lets them know this through his responsiveness. He is always just a phone call, e-mail or text away, if not at your doorstep, ready to show you around.
