We recently closed on the purchase of 1116 Morris St with Britt McLaughlin as our realtor, and wanted to make sure you knew how happy we were with her services and everything she did for us throughout the process.
Our experience with Philly Home Girls was exceptional. We were looking for a means to convert some savings into real estate investments as either rentals or live-in and Rachel Shaw from Philly Home Girls took the time to help us schedule showings through multiple weekends and over the holiday season to see what the market had to offer for each.
Britt from the Philly Home Girls was a wonderful partner throughout my home buying process. I was a green first-time home buyer, with a specific vision that I wouldn't give up until I found! Britt patiently led me through 30+ houses and multiple offers until we found the right one, always making time for me when I wanted to see a house (or 7). Britt is fun to work with, knowledgeable about the area, and is passionate about what she does. Once I made it to the offer & settlement phase, Jessica, the transaction coordinator, was very helpful and the process was seamless. Britt and the Philly Home Girls team are a great group - highly recommend!
My husband and I found out we were moving from Boston to Philly and had only about a week to find a place and move in. On a whim, I checked Yelp for any broker or real estate services and stumbled upon Philly Home Girls. Within minutes of sending a form requesting assistance, I got a response saying someone would follow up with me.
That's where Christian comes in. He jumped in and asked us what we were looking for in terms of space, neighborhood, pricing (we also needed something pet-friendly for our dog) and then within just 1 day emailed us *43 listings* to check out. Having so many options, all within our requested parameters, allowed us to be a little pickier and choose the apartments we loved most. Christian was super responsive in answering our questions and even pushed us outside of our comfort zone to check out places we never would have considered.
Once we arrived in the city, Christian took us to all 13 of the listings we narrowed down to, giving us information about the neighborhoods and local food scenes. When we didn't find what we liked that first day (keep in mind, our time was super crunched), he immediately suggested we meet the following morning to check out a few more places. That morning, we found the place we wanted!
This is when the real magic happened. Despite it being New Year's weekend, Christian somehow got us our lease, documentation and information for the move in. We happily entered our amazing new apartment just 4 days later.
Honestly, having Christian help us with this move saved us so much time and efforts, especially given that we were out of town at the start. Christian went above and beyond our expectations and it's thanks to him that we're settled exactly where we want to be. If you're looking for a place to rent, Philly Home Girls has got your back! We're so grateful and happy.. thank you, Christian!
We were moving from Brooklyn to Philly, and had no idea how to go about looking for apartments. It's a completely different world from apartment hunting in NYC (and no broker fees!), so we contacted a handful of realtors to start searching the city.
I am incredibly impressed with the level of Christian's professionalism, helpfulness, and genuine friendliness.
