Sold a home in 2013.
As a licensed real estate agent in another state, I was not able to list my mom's house in NY. I interviewed several realtors and was extremely impressed with Phil's knowledge about the real estate market and trends. We selected Phil because he is a true real estate professional. His knowledge and commitment to the client were equal to none. He is very thorough, detail oriented and always responded to questions in a timely manner with good sound advice. He offers services for example staging consultation that other realtors would charge for to assist with the sale of the house if needed. Phil does his best to realize the highest sale price on the property and ensures the transaction goes as smooth as possible. Phil's effort, energy and commitment went above and beyond what was expected. Not only were we happy with the outcome but at the end of the transaction we felt we had made a friend for life! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Phil as your real estate professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Mohegan Lake, NY.
Phil was amazing to work with!! He answered all of our questions and concerns up front. We had previously had the house listed with another realtor for almost a year, and NEVER got the amount of showings that Phil got us in a week. He had our house sold in 3 months!! Phil knows his business demographic, is quite personable and will always return your phone calls or e-mails. I would recommend him, and his company to anyone looking to buy or sell. We recently just re-purchased in the area with the help of one of his employees.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Highland, NY.
Phil was recommended to me by another realtor. I must say that I was completely satisfied with him from the start and felt very comfortable with his planning and way of taking care of the sale of the homes from the very beginning. He not only sold my home in Dutchess County, NY but also sold a home that was left to me by my mother upon her passing in Highland, NY (Ulster County) about three years latter. I applaud his expertise and knowledge and would recommend him to any home buyer or home seller!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Carmel, NY.
Short Sales can be a very emotional and stressful ordeal, but having Phil on my side was truly a blessing! His compassion and dedication, from making me feel like an old friend, to working with the banks, attorneys, other realtors( and their incompetence!) are truly commendable. He genuinely cares and goes above and beyond to get things done. I am so grateful to Phil and his staff for all they have done for me and would not hesitate to call him in the future!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Norwalk, CT.
J. Phillip Faranda had helped me purchase and sell 2 homes, over a 5-year period. I could not recommend anyone more professional, conscientious, forthright and knowledgeable. His wry sense of humor was a plus when dealing with us, and Phil did not merely deliver for us, but he excelled our every expectation. Additionally, Phil went above and beyond the call of duty to help us. Above and beyond just his professional requirements... he cared a great deal about what we needed, and he listened and understood, us fully. Phil understands the serious nature of timing, and the range of emotion experienced by a buyer or a seller. He and his team are thorough, engaging, and work efficiently and speedily to get the job done. It was such a blessing to have been his client. I can recommend no one better, I doubt that there is anyone better out there! -- P. Herrick

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Fishkill, NY.
I had the pleasure of looking at over 30 homes with Phil Faranda as my buyer's broker. I was divorced and a first time home buyer and Phil's knowledge, professionalism, integrity and easy wit won me over from day one.

As my search continued I appreciated his honest opinions, thoughtful advice, prompt call-backs and the sense that he was a friend who was watching my back. The process of buying my particular house was arduous to say the least--but Phil was a total pro who made something I didn't think was going to happen, happen. In that sense I owe him a deep debt of gratitude because I LOVE my house and have never been happier.

Phil is a wonderful person both personally and professionally and I recommend him highly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Cortlandt Manor, NY.
There are lots of nice realtors out there, any of whom can drive you around and show you houses. But considering the fact that a home purchase is likely to be the largest and most complicated financial transaction of your life, it’s worth seeking out someone who’s not just nice. You want someone who has deep knowledge of the process and is on the ball with execution. You want someone who can advocate for you interests with sellers’ agents, attorneys, home inspectors, loan officers, mortgage brokers, and the myriad other players who can screw things up. You also want someone whose judgment you trust when he’s advising you. Based on all that, Phil Faranda is your guy. We used him for a tortuous, years long, on again, off-again house search in a difficult market and he never flagged. We were very glad to have him. Oh, and he also has a great sense of humor and is a really nice guy, but that’s just a bonus.

Bought a home in 2010.
Phil was a complete professional throughout our transaction. He showed us numerous properties and shared his local knowledge. He also helped keep the transaction positive by smoothing out issues with the seller.

Sold a home in 2012.
Phil was awesome. He communicated every step of the way. I originally had another agent who just could not respond to anything and Phil was like a breath of fresh air! I would highly recommend Phil to anyone, I love, love love him!
