Real estate agent, CRS, Green (9 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Aurora, OH.
Primary point of contact: Laura Cirigliano
I worked with both Seth Task and Laura Cirigliano from Berkshire Hathaway. They are very knowledgeable about the Cleveland/Akron area, including the area I was looking to move to (which I didn't know much about beforehand). There were bumps along the road as there is with any home purchase process but working with both of them smoothed the ride a lot. I would work with them again and highly recommend their team.
I was very fortunate to work with Nellie Masturzo from the Task Team! She was patient with me during the entire process, even though my requirements completely changed, and in spite of the fact that her office completed a move.While my escrow was extra long and tedious, she remained in contact and exceptionally encouraging. On top of that, she negotiated such a good price that my new neighbors are playfully saying I "stole" the house. I love my new home so much I doubt I will move again, but I will definitely contact Nellie again in the future, and have her number handy for anyone I know who might need a recommendation!
He rented my house. He told me he checked tenant's credit history and was good how ever I found out later, he lied everything about tenants. I have problem with payments after first month. These people could not effort this house to begin with. I would never recommend to any one to do business with this man. He care less for your house or your tenant but his commission. Typical sells person we should all stay away.
Seth Task worked with us first with renting a property that had been on the market for some time, and then one year later closing a sale on the same property in four days. Seth is very responsive. He has a good eye for recommending cosmetic improvements at a reasonable price that will appeal to potential buyers. The results speak for themselves in how quickly the property sold at a price above list. Seth is very knowledgeable about market conditions. I would definitely recommend Seth to anyone in need of an outstanding realtor.

Seth does a great job or communicating. Whether day or night, text, email or by phone, someone from the Task Team is always available. Seth was there throughout the process and guided us expertly during our sale. Having great trades available is a bonus because they are fast, reliable and cost-effective.
Seth was referred to us by a friend, and we would certainly continue the path to recommend him to our friends. During the almost 5-month searching process, Seth had provided a great deal of help in locating our house, especially his knowledge of this field and negotiation skills. We really appreciated his effort.
Seth was exceptionally patient while working with my wife and I. We began looking to buy our first home in 2011. We looked at around 20 different properties. We then moved out of town and returned late in 2012. Seth once again patiently showed us properties. We looked at a lot of houses and Seth was with us on each one. He never pressured us or became frustrated when we walked away from house after house. He was knowledgeable on everything from interest rates to appliances and I appreciated having him on our side, representing us. We bought our house in 2013 and loved the experience of working with Seth. Seth is amongst the best realtors that I have met and worked with. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or family. He will work on your behalf.

Seth Task is professional, poised,polite,prompt,and best of all very knowledgeable in the real estate field..He guided me through a very difficult sale in my life.Seth made the sale painless and pleasant. He handled the business!
He was confident, reliable and always made himself available to me. He was thorough in answering my questions and kept me aware of any and all concerns, open houses, final papers etc. He took me through the process from beginning to end, and always had my best interest in hand.
If I ever purchase a home or condo again, Seth is the man!
I highly recommend Seth to anyone needing help with real estate. He stood by me through it all, and it wasn't an easy sale..thank you Seth, you are a Task Master!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $100K in Cleveland Heights, OH.
Seth was very responsive and knowledgeable when showing us available properties. His expertise in evaluating the properties architecturally for possible future problems was invaluable and he carried out the process of negotiating for and buying the house with professionalism and expertise.
However, under no circumstances to I recommend continuing to deal with him after the house is bought. He promised to fill out tax paperwork which he didn't and because we trusted him to follow through on his word its going to cost us several thousand extra in taxes. He offered to help us renovate through several contractors he knows, and all of his recommendations turned out to be terribly unprofessional, unreliable workers who didn't finish the job (for example a bathroom remodel that looked like it was a DIY who didn't bother to even install the knobs and fixtures and clean up) and still wanted more than the quoted price after being close to two months late in getting the majority of the job done.
Overall, I trust Seth when he directly has a large sum of money at stake, but not otherwise
