Team reviews

We moved out of Philly 8 years ago but kept our primary home as rental. We decided to sell it after the city significantly increased the property tax. We first listed our house with an agent (recommended by a friend's friend) in October and it didn't go well. After the contract expired, we contacted Stephanie. She recommended a local contractor to make cosmetic repairs. An offer came in within a week and we settled on a price within our expectations after some negotiations. The house closed at the end of March. Believe it or not, we didn't meet Stephanie until at the closing! But we were impressed with her professionalism, knowledge and skill. We would hire her again if we're ever going to sell our other house in Philly.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA.

Our house listing was one of the lowest, if not the lowest priced listing in Northern Liberties. Having said that, the service that we received was as if it was one of the most expensive listings. Chris consistently returned texts, e-mails and voicemails promptly and efficiently regardless of the hour. Through their online platform we were constantly kept in the loop with showings, feedback from showings and other necessary administrative tasks. His advice was always on point, yet I never felt pressured into doing what he suggested. Our property was unoccupied at the time of sale, and even though the heat was on, had fears of a pipe freezing and voiding the sale. Living about 80 miles from the house meant a significant trip for me to check up and make sure that everything was ok. Chris sent someone from his office to make sure that everything was okay saved me an almost 4 hour round trip. If you are looking for a realtor in this area his team is without a doubt the best . . . Thank you Chris!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA.

Chris and team helped us to sell our house and buy a new one. Both processes were very smooth! They were organized and on top of all the details, even working with our mortgage and insurance companies to make sure everything was ready on closing day. I appreciate that Chris was available when we needed him, by text, email and phone. He is patient and knowledgeable. Both selling and buying is very stressful and can be fraught with lots of false starts and ups/downs. We had both, but Chris remained calm and persistent and in the end, all was a success! I highly recommend the Somers' team.

Chris was a very open and honest agent who helped sell our home. He was very responsive to our questions/concerns and was a clear guide along the way. I will also say his team was a well-oiled machine. It was a very easy process. Thank you!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Poplar-Ludlow-Yorktowne, Philadelphia, PA.

The Somers team were extremely helpful, not only in facilitating the purchase of a home a number of years ago, but in the sale of that home when career opportunities required us to relocate. Even though we were 2,500 miles away, the process was smooth and efficient. Highly recommended.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA.

Chris represented the sale of our house in Old Kensington. He and Stephanie, and their whole team, are incredibly professional, and were extremely responsive throughout the entire process. They made every step very clear and made the sale of our house as smooth and painless as it could be. We especially chose this team because of their long-time experience and knowledge with our particular neighborhood and the surrounding areas. Due to a line of contingent offers, we needed a swift, smooth, solid sale and that's exactly what we received. A strong offer in only 3 weeks, and the rest fell into place nicely. We know we made the right choice with our representation and would definitely recommend Chris and his team.

Property manage a home.

The Somers team handles renting out 4 apartments for me in Fishtown.

They are the best! They know the area really well and are one of the few realty companies that knows how to use online tools to their advantage.

I have recommended them multiple times. They are great.
