My Fiance and I had a wonderful exerience working with Geri Monzillo from H&G Realty. As a first-time home buyer, Geri not only made our experience easy, but more inportantly, educatedus on the buying process and the housing market. She was very responsive by phone and email at all times during the process and supported us every step of the way. If we had any questions or concerns, she addredded them immediatlely and provided helpful advice when it came for us to make improtand and perhaps, difficul decisions. Without her help and guidfance, we believe the experience would not have gone so smoothly for us and finding our dream home would not have been possible. Shie is not only a true professional and a real estate expert, but someone you can trust! therefore, we would highly recommend Geri to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent a home.


 

Working with Geri Monzillo at H&G Realty has been a great experience. My husband and I fell in love with our new home, but faced many obstacles throughout a difficult transaction with a "nightmare seller". Geri was there to guide us every step of the way, ensuring this deal went through successfully. Geri demonstrates outstanding customer service and communication by following through with the seller requests as well as responding to any questions that we had, within a timely matter. She is a fantastic negotiator and refuses to take "No" for an answer. She shows a passion for what she does and always puts her clients needs first. She is knowledgeable of the Real Estate industry and what we should expect as a first time home buyers.
Overall, Geri Monzillo is a valuable asset at H&G Realty and it has been a pleasure working with her. We highly recommend Geri Monzillo for your next home purchase.

Patient and warm, as well as smart & hardworking!

Geri goes all out 24/7. You couldn't possibly have a better agent. She has handled 3 real estate transactions for me in the last 2 years and she is working on the 4th. She never misses a beat. She will not disappoint you. Thanks Geri, again and again.


 

I had to write to you again to thank both of you for helping us sell our house. You were in touch with us with EVERY move you made, you made it so easy for us.

Wonderful selling experience with Geri. She had the answers that my attorney didn't. I think that she missed her calling. Hands on 100% right from the beginning. Thank you again and again.

I've had the pleasure of working H&G Realty. My salesperson Marianna T was extremely helpful and courteous. This was my first time buying a home so naturally I had lots of questions which Marianna was always quick to return my emails and texts. I told her what I was looking for in a home and she was able to find the perfect one. I would definitely recommend H&G Realty!

My agent was Geri and she was not only professional and knowledgeable but patient and caring. She kept saying don't worry I'll hold your hand and as a first time home buyer I needed to hear that. Geri always returned my calls and emails promptly. I will always be grateful for her advice and guidance.

I met Bob Spira of H&G Realty NY Inc.,at an open house and immediately felt comfortable having him help me with my never ending house search. I have Bob to thank fully for the purchase of my first home in Sound Beach because it was honestly not a house I would have went and looked at on my own, but as soon as I stepped foot inside I knew it was THE ONE! He was extremely patient throughout the process and was willing to show me an endless number of houses until I found exactly what I had been looking for. He is a great agent to work with because he is a local who knows the area.

Dear Bob
We cannot thank you enough for your commitment to finding us the perfect house. From the moment we began our journey with you, we felt completely comfortable and confident that you had an understanding of what we were looking for. Your knowledge and experience helped us to navigate through a wide variety of houses in the ESM School district, and ultimately rejoicing with us when we finally happened upon The HOME of our DREAMS!
Many thanks to Bob of H&G Realty NY Inc.

Geri Monzillo,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your outstanding service in securing a great apartment for me in Wading River. You may recall that I received an email regarding this listing, and took the earliest train out of Penn Station with the hope of being able to see the apartment that same day. In fact, I was waiting outside the office when the receptionist arrived, and shortly thereafter I spoke to you on the telephone expressing my interest in the apartment. You were kind enough to accommodate me on your day off, and even cancelled all your personal appointments that morning so I could see the apartment. By the time I returned to Manhattan that evening, you completed the necessary credit checks, and even secured the landlord's approval. I was truly amazed at your level of professional service and commitment to your clientele. Thanks to you, I am living back in Wading River and couldn't be happier. Please feel free to share this letter with the management of H & G Realty. And once again, thank you from the proverbial bottom of my heart.

Rebecca Cramer and the staff at H&G were more than helpful and knowledgeable in the process of purchasing a home. She was proactive in getting things done and didn't wait to be asked or advised. She was making phone calls, writing emails and staying on top of everyone involved to make sure everything went as smoothly and effortlessly as possible for myself and my partner. She did everything that she could so we wouldn't be bothered with the headaches of buying a home. I strongly recommend using Rebecca at H&G.


 

I am totally satisfied with the expertise H & G has provided in purchasing my new home. Shortly after I contacted Geri Monzillo I received a listing that fit my needs. Everything has run so smoothly I couldn't ask for more. Geri found me the perfect home almost immediately. If and when I am ready to sell I know right where to go. Many thanks to Lou and a super staff.


 

My family recently had the pleasure and privilege of working with Lou Papas of HG Realty in the sale of a residence. Lou is a delight to work with--very accessible, responsive, and congenial. You would be hard-pressed to find a broker as dedicated to his clients as Lou.


 

Dear Lou,
Lou Papas of H & G Realty listed my home in May of 2011. His evaluation of my property's value and subsequent asking price were spot on. We all want to believe our homes are worth more than what the market will bear, but the truth of the matter is, a professional such as Lou knew what number would sell my home. Being one of those people, of course I wanted a higher asking price! But the fact of the matter was, Lou's estimate is what sold it; listed May 2011, contracts signed June 2011, closed July 2011. And we got the asking price! This was even more remarkable as this property was a condominium in a community of 250+ units with plenty of them on the market. Translation: stiff competition. That being said, the entire process from start to finish, Lou was a delight to work with. He made sure showings were convenient for me, made sure all paperwork was in order at the contract phase and at the closing, and took care to see to it that all the i's were dotted and t's crossed. The consummate professional.K
Selling a home is such a stressful time, having low key, laid back, no pressure Lou Papas on your team is a bonus! New slogan for this guy? LIST IT WITH LOU, LISTEN TO LOU!


 

Dear Laura and Lauren,
I don't think I will ever be able to express how much I appreciate all you have done for my family. I truly feel without your diligence, positive attitude, and knowledge in your field, we would not be living in our Dream Home today! Not only were you able to sell out house in a market that has seen some difficult times, but you managed to find us a home that fit every descriptor we gave you. As a self-confessed neurotic, you took every call, showed us every house we requested to see, and responded to every e-mail and text without ever making me feel as if I was inconveniencing either of you; for that I am very grateful.
With great appreciation,
Joe and Lori Papagni


 

It was an absolute pleasure working with both Laura and Lauren. A short sale is a very difficult and length process, and the H+G team made the process so much more tolerable and smooth. They were there to answer any questions I had, and explain to me anything that I didn't understand. I would recommend them to anyone who is doing a short sale and am very grateful for what they did for me! They are always trying to make sure you get the best deal possible!
Thank you, Brian S.


 

Selling or buying a house is, for most of us, the largest most important financial decision we will make in our lives. You want someone who is extremely knowledgeable, honest, forthright, trustworthy, reliable and considerate to help guide you through this entire stressful process. My husband and I were extremely fortunate when a family member recommended us to Rich Bitzer when we were selling our house. Rich got right to work upon listing our house. First, he helped us arrive at a listing price that we were comfortable with, and then he advertised it online, in print and held open houses. We quickly had an offer and for some realtors they may take a backseat in the process at this point but Rich continued to be a huge support right through until closing. If you want someone to help you with any real estate transaction, buying or selling, we highly recommend Rich Bitzer and H&G Realty.

Dear Geri,
Thank you for the help in Renting our Apartment. We seem to have a lovely young lady as a tenant. If we need any help in the future, we will certainly call apon you. Sincerly,

Dear Mr. Papas:
I would just like to take a moment to let you know how grateful my husband Brett and I are with our new home in Bretton Woodssold to us by Marianna Tsakonas.
During this troubled economy like many, our funds were very limited. We thought we would never find a place that would fit our budget. However, Marianna gave us plenty of her time, patience, respect and encouragement.
We never thought in a million years, we would be able to live like royalty in beautiful Bretton Woods, but we are herethanks to Mariannas endless search for us. Not only are we happy with our purchase, but we are happy with the way the whole process went. Marianna was on top of the situation at all times and always kept the communication going in which as a result, lead us to a successful closing. In addition, she assisted us with referrals (lawyer, engineer, ect) and also made herself available to us.
Thank you so much for providing us with a positive experience and home purchase!!
Sincerely,
Lori Lombardo-Kimmel
