It was a pleasure working with you on our recent home purchase in Chappaqua. For David and I, this
home search was the last one we want to do for a long time. We were moving from the city and looking
for a home to raise our children and a place where our family would feel "at home." Because this
purchase was such an important decision for our family, it was critical for us to feel completely
comfortable with our agent's experience and knowledge of the market.
You were able to put us at ease quickly by taking the time to get to know us and understand what we were
really looking for in our home. When we went on home tours, you also kept up with what we liked and
did not like in the various houses. Coupling this attention to detail with your knowledge of the town and
surrounding areas was comforting to us as buyers. Your comments were extremely relevant to us and
helped us greatly with our decision.
In addition, you helped us conduct an extremely thorough search for our home. Using the home alerts
you set up, we were able to preview listings and provide comments to you on which homes we were
interested in touring. Since you had already walked through most (if not all) the homes on our list, you
were able to provide helpful insights about the homes based on our preferences to narrow down our list
and focus our time appropriately. We feel no stone was left unturned during our search which made us
confident with our purchase.
Moving from the city to the suburbs is a big change. To make matters even more interesting, we were
under a time crunch due to the impending arrival of our second child as well as the sale of our co-op in
the City. You prepared us in advance for all the necessary steps in the sales process in Westchester so
once we found our home we could move from the initial offer to closing very quickly - which we did
within four weeks.
Your attention to our wants and needs in a home, your patience during our search and your assistance in
preparing us for the negotiations and purchase were invaluable. We would gladly recommend you to
anyone else in the market to buy or sell a home. If your clients have any additional questions
about our experience we are available to discuss.

We were very fortunate to have worked with Brendan through the purchase of our new home. We have had a great deal of experience with the buying and selling of real estate, having owned a co-op and two houses in a span of six years. We can honestly say Brendan was, by far, the most professional and supportive agent we dealt with. He is a man of distinct principles. While looking for our new home, we never felt pressured in any way and we knew we had someone looking out for our best interests. Brendan took the time to fully understand what we were looking for in a house and neighborhood and always helped up stay within our budget! Brendan's unwavering honesty and determination supported us through one of the most important decisions of our lives.
In this economy, it is crucial to have someone of his caliber guiding you thorough one of the most important decisions you'll ever make.

We chose Brendan Preston to represent us as a Sellers agent and were not disappointed. When selecting a partner in such an important venture you must choose carefully. In my mind professionalism, courtesy, honesty, trust and creativity were the most important criteria in our selection. Brendan ended up earning "high marks" in each category. Brendan's qualities far surpass the other supposed "high-end" brokers in town who always fail to impress in their customer service and professionalism. I would rank Brendan in the top 5% of all the brokers I have dealt with and would not hesitate to recommend him. We would not have sold our house without someone that matched his dedication.

Working with Brendan was such a breath of fresh air. He put our needs before worrying about his commission. As we were new to the area, he was very patient in describing the merits and drawbacks of living in the area -and did so in a very balanced way. He never tried to up-sell us, every house he showed us fit the criteria we gave him. All of that suggested to us that Brendan truly listened to what we needed. Further, Brendan is unsurpassed in his knowledge about the business & financial aspects of the home purchasing process -getting a mortgage, managing the bank and the other realtors and so on. He did all of this with the greatest level of knowledge and patience and was never frustrated with our endless stream of silly questions. Also, Brendan was still there for us after the closing and helped us to acclimate to the area, showed us where to find the essential services and a whole host of other insights that made or transition into a new neighborhood much easier.
