To be honest, I never write testimonies, referrals, etc., but after dealing with Pittsburgh Property Guy, it's the least I could do for them. I was in a real bind, financially and moving out of state pending. After contacting Pittsburgh Property Guy, they were fast, straight up and honest, but what really impressed me was the fact right before closing, I had a family emergency, and Pittsburgh Property Guy basically took the shirt off their back for me. I'm very thankful for that ! I would recommend Pittsburgh Property Guy in a heartbeat without question.Richard Z.
I was stuck in a real bad situation with a piece of rental property that I had from a prior marriage. The place was becoming way too much for me to maintain. On top of that I was also having trouble keeping up with the payments and of course the bank was no help whatsoever. I then turned to a real estate agent and they couldn’t do much for me as the property was not worth what I owed on it. I actually thought about just letting the bank take the place. Just looking for solutions I found info on Pittsburgh Property Guy. I had no idea what to expect from this type of business and was skeptical at first, but I could not be happier that I found them. Nick and Chris got me out of this disaster. They found a buyer willing to take on my mortgage and eventually purchase the property outright. They are honest guys who understand these issues and were able to find a solution when nobody and I mean nobody else could. I could not be more grateful.Dave B.
My mother recently passed away, and as the executrix of her estate, I had the responsibility of selling her house. My father had always taken very good care of the house, but as he was not well his last four or five years, the house was in need of repairs and upgrading. Not wanting to put more time or money into the house before selling it, I reached out to several people who would buy the property "as is". I didn't want to haggle over price, but had a good idea of what I would consider. I asked each person to give me their best deal. Pittsburgh Property Guy was who I chose. They were understanding of my position and worked with me to come up with a price we both felt was fair. The sale and closing was quick and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the same situation.Marla P.

Pittsburgh Property Guy was honest and fair all along the way. The details regard the house were accurate, the process of purchase were exactly as it should without any surprises or delays. The things they promised to do after the sale they did completely. I was happy doing business with them. I sure hope it will happen again.Alby N.
I just want to express my thanks and appreciation to Chris Herisko and Attorney Rob Felkay for all matters concerning the sale of the Brookline property. Both Rob and Chris made this experience as smooth and easy as possible. Chris, the 'Pittsburgh Property Guy' was fair, professional and courteous during the entire process. I would highly recommend Chris if you have a property to sell in the Pittsburgh area.Steve K.
I purchased a 5 bedroom 3.5 bath home from Pittsburgh Property Guy in the city's east end. The 90 year old home was completely stripped down to the studs and renovated by Pittsburgh Property Guy. After living in the house for nearly a year, I can attest to the very high level of quality and craftsmanship that he put into this home. The home inspector even commented to me prior to purchasing that he's seen a lot of renovated homes, and this one was clearly done right. He used high end finishes like Brazilian Cherry floors, granite kitchen counters, and marble in the master bathroom. He also took the time to have the brick cleaned on the outside of the house, exposed and restored original woodwork, vaulted the 3rd floor to create even more livable space. Everywhere you look, you can see that time and thought was put into the final product. It's been so nice having friends and family comment on the beauty and quality of the renovation too! Aside from the quality craftsmanship, Pittsburgh Property Guy himself provided top notch customer service to me when I had questions or minor issues that I encountered. He worked with me directly via phone and email, and was always very quick to respond. It was clear that my happiness as his customer was important to him, and that's not something that should be overlooked! If you're thinking about buying one of his properties, you're in safe hands.Ryan C.
