Hear What Others Have To Say…
I was happy that I sold my property to your company. My property was in a hard-to-sell situation mainly due to its location. As I was looking for a fast sale, I contacted several wholesale buyers that appear to specialize in the Pittsburgh area. Your company was the only one that tried to make things work even though the property location was somewhat outside the area for your typical purchases. The sale process was handled efficiently and professionally, and my questions were always kindly answered. So I was comfortable throughout the process. Thank you so much.Sean U.
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.
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 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.
What an awesome experience I have had working with Pittsburgh Property Guy. They were very easy to work with. Also returned every phone call and every email or text message in a prompt time. I would definitely recommend using them, so pick up the phone and give them a call. You won't be disappointed!Judy C.
The whole experience was great and so easy. We really appreciate that. We are very busy with our work schedules and really didn't have time to sell our house and you made it happen from the start. You did everything and even sent the closing attorney to our house to close. And the check was in our mailbox two days later. Can't say enough. You were kind and yet professional and got it done.Nate P.
