Team reviews

Put my house on the market and within three days had three offers over asking. By the end of the week I had we'll over 20 showings and an AO above asking. We closed soon after. Phil priced my home perfectly, which eliminated low ball offers from the start. His response time was as good as any I have seen. I forgot to mention that I have worked in real estate for ten years and didn't hesitate to choose J Philip Faranda as my agent. He has built up such a presents in Westchester that he knew and had relationships with almost every agent that had showings at my place. It couldn't have been a better experience.

Found a tenant for a Condo home in Port Chester, NY.

I have know Phil Faranda for 3 years and had the pleasure of working with him recently when I listed my apartment for rent. I am most impressed by his genuine passionate for real estate and commitment to building a positive relationship with his clients. I felt valued and all questions, concerns or requests were promptly addressed. Within minutes he responded to phone calls and e-mails! So refreshing!

I have no reservations about recommending Phil as an excellent real estate agent. He is knowledgeable, personable, very accessible and truly committed to working with his clients to fulfill their real estate needs. Hire him. You will not be disappointed!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Yonkers, NY.

From top to bottom J Philip Realty is a classy and professional organization! I sold my Bronxville home with this company and I was very pleased that I decided to use them!

Owner Philip Faranda has a wealth of knowledge about the local real estate market. First, he informed me about the appropriate price point for my home - based on size, location, styling and age. Second, he created an impressive advert for my home, so it could reach the maximum number of people with the best potential results. Third, he offered me advice on improvements and alterations that I might consider to make my home more attractive. Fourth, he gave me insights into the subleties of the real estate law and what issues I might encounter as well as questions or concerns that might arise from potential buyers.

The results? My house sold in less than 30 days and for a very solid price!

I strongly recommend J Philip Real Estate for the sale or purchase of your home, condo or co-op here in Westchester!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Monroe, NY.

We would not be in our home if it were not for Phil. This is not hyperbole, nor cliche. I say with absolute conviction that it is not possible for this simple review to adequately convey my esteem for Phil and his firm.

The amount of work and dedication Phil put in was exemplary. We were first time home buyers, and buying a short sale from homeowners with a double mortgage and an uncooperative and unresponsive seller's attorney. Phil handled the entire process admirably. We were buying a very modest house in Orange Co., but treated as if we were family members buying a million dollar home. He did more than get a difficult job done; he did it while keeping our sanity intact. He functioned as realtor, friend, and therapist whenever we needed it.

I will simply say that we owe Phil a debt of gratitude for the work that he did. J. Philip Real Estate is the absolute best place that you're going to find, and I would stake my house on it.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Yonkers, NY.

There is no doubt in my mind that the house would still be on the market if it wasn't for Phil's proactive efforts.

Bought a home in 2010 in Beech Hill, NY 10583.

Phil was very responsive to our requests; he was very professional and respectful; he always gave us his honest opinion on the questions we asked. Also, after the transaction was done Phil went out of his way to help us track down the original owner for a question that we did not get to ask the owner. Phil was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $200K in Poughkeepsie, NY.

I am thankful to Phil for doing a great job on the sale of my home. The house was listed with another company for 6 months and did not sell. After taking the listing, Phil was able to get a contract on the house in a little over 4 months and a successful closing afterward.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Scarsdale, NY.

Phil is a very honorable and respectful realtor. He has gone way above and beyond the call of duty for me not only once, but twice. He helped sell my home in 2008, when I practically lost all hope, and helped me purchase a new one earlier this year. He knew exactly what to look for when I told him my expectations and brought it to the table. He listens intently and delivers. I received superior service on both occasions and I highly recommend Phil to everyone out there. When you seriously want to buy and/or sell, Phil gets the job done. I can't thank him enough for helping me find me my dream home!

Sold a home in 2009 in Granite Springs, Yorktown, NY 10598.

I hired Phil to sell my house after a prior attempt was unsuccessful with another company. He was on the ball, aggressive and delivered as he promised. I never had to chase him down or wait for answers. We closed successfully and I would use him again in a hearbeat.
