Testimonials

“Both Roger and Marisa were looking out for us at every turn and they made a complex process easy for us.”

We had an amazing experience with Roger and Marisa. We were buying our first house and both Roger and Marisa always took the time to explain the process to us and were always available to us even on very short notice. Roger’s extensive experience as a contractor and renovating homes was key in helping us to decide whether or not to make an offer on the houses we saw. He went through the home inspection with us and provided a realistic view of how long things would take and how expensive things would be. He worked with the seller’s agent to adjust the closing date and saved us from leaving our apartment too early and getting stuck without a place to live. Every person Roger recommended we work with (attorney, lender, etc.) was amazing.  They were a genuine pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend them highly enough. We are very glad we chose them.  –Chris Johnson and Rebecca Pomrenke

“The result of Roger’s labors was a better price for our home than we dreamed of; and the process could not have been executed more smoothly.”

It is with great pleasure that my husband and I recommend Roger. I feel confident no one else could have more adeptly helped us to sell our home. Of the realtors we spoke to, I appreciated Roger’s comments and questions the most, and just felt comfortable with him. He was also the most thorough and looked at our home from perspectives that the others failed to consider. Roger’s transaction coordinator, Marisa, was fabulous, not only in helping us stage our house for showing, but also in helping to keep our home safe during COVID. During the time our home was on the market husband and I were full of anxiety, but Roger was cool and calm while he deftly steered us through the difficulties of having a home on the market. We had multiple high quality offers within days.  –Bob and Jodi Bond

“Roger demonstrated a remarkable level of  professionalism and follow-through along each step of the way.”

We highly recommend Roger Y. Allen, should you wish to buy or sell your home! We had the joy and privilege of working with Roger to both purchase our new home and sell our former home. From the beginning of the tedious and somewhat stressful process of both selling and purchasing, it was clear that we had made the right decision to engage Roger as our agent.  He tirelessly and patiently facilitated negotiations then guides us expertly past the many challenges and pitfalls people often encounter when buying or selling a home. We had multiple offers and sold our home within a week of listing on the market! Roger excels at communication and loves his profession.   –Robin and Mike Balin

 

“Above and beyond; you came to the rescue!”

You were always available, always professional, always knowledgeable and always pleasant. We’ve never had the kind of support from a realtor that you have given us. When we couldn’t be at the house one afternoon, you came to the rescue. You were also there at the home inspection to answer whatever questions he had – and to help us understand any concerns. There were many details, both small and large, needed to move the sale forward, and you went above and beyond to take care of them all.    –John & Linda Valentine

 

“His marketing and negotiating ability are superb.”

Roger’s patience and diligence in walking you through the correct steps in preparation of placing a home on the market is commendable. Roger clearly has a breath of knowledge of the current housing market. Under his advisement the home was priced to make it desirable, therefore generating much foot traffic and as a result was sold in two weeks. His sales and negotiating ability are superb, enabling us to sell the house for about 5% over our asking price, even after the house inspection revealed some minor discrepancies that required negotiation. We will use Roger as our agent should we have a need for another real estate transaction.”   –Diane and Ivor MacFarlane

 

“We can’t thank Roger enough for a smooth, professional, and – yes – fun, experience buying our new home.”

Shopping for a home should be a fun experience. We chose to work with Roger because he kept the “fun” in the experience. We felt extremely comfortable with him because he has extensive knowledge about houses – his certification as a general contractor made us feel secure in his advice and insight. We ended up in a house that had literally everything on our “must have” list – and Roger helped us negotiate a great price, and a perfect move-in schedule for our needs. We love our new home!   –Laura Vandenberg & Austin Chang

 

“Roger was a great guy to work with.”

Roger was really personable, he knew the area really well, and was able to help guide us through different houses that we were interested in. He was available via email, phone calls, and would immediately return the call if he wasn’t there and was very attentive. Roger was a great guy to work with.   –Meredith Weiss

 

Roger was very easy to get a hold of and always got back to us right away.

Roger was always there for us. Anytime we had an issue, we’d give Roger a call. It was good to have somebody here while we were down in Virginia. We could have him go check on the house and confirm some things for us while we were going through this process.   –Kris & Heather Labowski

 

“What a huge benefit it was that Roger is a licensed contractor!”

Roger really got to know us, was very available. What a huge benefit it was that Roger is a licensed contractor so could let us know “this is going to turn out to be a problem” or “this looks pretty good.” It was a lot easier to make a firm decision on a place. He knew what we were looking for, and our price range, so when something did become available, we totally trusted his judgment.   –Deb & Kevin Parlee

 

“Quick sale at above asking price; expert guidance and can-do attitude.”

The house was sold in just 10 days! I believe that one factor in the quick sale (at above asking price) was your advice and guidance in preparing the house for showing. Then there were the many occasions on which you went “above and beyond” in order to work through issues and help with all of the logistics necessary for a quick closing (and saved us some money in the process). You constantly helped us to do what needed to be done in order to make the deal work in a compressed timeframe.   –Ron Pillsbury

 

“My sincere and deepest appreciation for his time, effort, and skill.”

Thank you for all you have done to facilitate and expedite the closing on my property. Words are the best I can relay to you to express my sincere and deepest appreciation for the time, effort and skill that is involved in dealing with the many people in this process.   –Theodore J. Warren

 

“Roger provided excellent service and wise counsel throughout our selling experience.”

He was particularly helpful in staging our home and keeping us calm and informed during a COVID-19 interrupted selling process. We appreciated that Roger was a straight shooter even when he had to deliver other than optimal information. Roger’s real estate experience was a tremendous asset for us as we prepared to sell our home. We highly recommend Roger for any and all real estate transactions. –Dena Caradimitropoulo & Vicky Robinson

 

“Roger was easy to work with and always helpful when I had a question.”

He always returned a call promptly and helped with resources in an area I wasn’t 100% familiar with. –W. James Matthers
