Caroline was a pleasure to work with. She knew the market, gave good advice, and went above and beyond when we were out of town to help us out. We highly recommend her! Thanks Caroline!

Jen & Kyle B – Kenmore
Dalton was so great and flexible to work with! He was very knowledgeable about the area and the houses we looked at. Always honest with us on how much he thinks the house would sell for but also what the house would be worth. We felt very comfortable house hunting in this crazy market under his guidance. Always responded quickly to our requests and questions. He was always on our side and looked out for us. We learned so much and we got the house of our dreams thanks to Dalton. We strongly recommend!!

Kathleen H – Amherst
My husband and I needed to sell his sister's home after her passing. We were not familiar with the area and lived in another state but we researched many brokers and consulted with family. Jim Hoffman and his team at Hunt Real Estate were wonderful to us. During every step of the process, Jim provided us with useful information and advice which ultimately saved us time and money. Everyone involved in selling the house, contractors, attorneys, other realtors, etc. knew Jim and respected his real estate talents. Yes, we got a great offer within days of listing the home and Jim and Chris continued to protect our interests throughout the closing. If you want smart, savvy real estate pros who are also kind, we highly recommend Jim Hoffman and his team.

Jaime W – Buffalo
Highly recommend! I struck out with a couple realtors prior to taking the chance in reaching out to Dalton and now feel very fortunate that it worked out that way. As an out of state, first time home buyer in the area I had to rely and trust Dalton quite a lot. He is very professional, proactive, knowledgeable and maintains great communication throughout the entire process. Dalton walked me through everything from start to finish and made this experience as seamless and easy as possible!

Warren and his team were a huge help through the entire process of buying my first home! From looking at multiple homes, putting in offers, and finally closing on the perfect house!

Catherine B - Orchard Park
Warren is great! He helped us to find a new home as well as sell our current one. He's knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and very helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Thomas E – Depew
I am very thankful that we had the Hoffman team—specifically Warren Teall—working with my wife and I to buy our first house. Warren was knowledgeable, approachable, and always professional. He always had our best interest in mind and was completely honest. He was available at all times of the day including weekends. We were very anxious during the house hunting process, but Warren was there every step of the way advising us and keeping us level headed in the midst of a crazy housing market. I would 100% recommend Warren and the Hunt real estate team to friends and family. Thanks again for finding us our dream house!!

Caroline Raimy the most understanding and she listens and hears your needs for the requirements you need in a house. She us a very honest and a frank person. My husband and I were very very comfortable with her. She knows the market much better than anyone i have spoken to. She is so patience with you and she double checks everything before we made an offer and she is the best about the pricing for this market. She and her team gave us all the phone numbers that we might need. This was my first time buying a house in Buffalo. I have a long-lasting friend in her in Buffalo where I am new. She is the very very very best person with the best personality. I have and will always cherish her friendship for many years to come. I told her that i have 1 condition and that is we are friends forever and the answer she gave me was priceless. Her smile warms you up if you have any fears and scared. She and her team are awesome and have been the best. Carrie thank you my friend for ever for making this house buying transaction for flawless and painless. Take care. We will always stay in touch.

Dalton was very professional and thorough. He was a great help in selling our house. And the sale was very easy and it couldn’t have been better easier for us. I would highly recommend Dalton to anyone in the future. Dalton and his whole team was fantastic. Dalton answered all of our questions and made sure that all of the paperwork was properly completed prior to the sale. James Hoffman and his team made it possible for us to sit back and relax and They did all of the work.

Robin H – Depew
Dalton was professional, knowledgeable, very responsive and fun to work with. The sale of my home was seamless and required very little effort on my part. If you’re looking to buy or sell a home … he’s your guy!!

Tracey & Joe M - Amherst
What we liked about Carrie is that she was always very professional and knowledgeable. She never pushed us to buy something. She truly wanted us to be happy with our decision and what we were spending. We would highly recommend her.

Chelsea Q – Tonawanda
Being first time homebuyers in this volatile 2021 market, my spouse and I weren’t sure what to expect. Thank God for Hunt’s James Hoffman Team and especially our agent Dalton Scalf. Dalton was everything a first time homebuyer will look for. He was very professional, knowledgeable, responsive to our questions, and during house showings he took the time to walk us through everything that we should look out for. He encouraged us not to lose hope when offers we put in were being rejected…and he kept reminding us that the right house meant for us will eventually come through. Which did happen! I highly recommend Dalton for you if you are in the market looking to sell or buy a house. Rest assured he will make both you and your family happy at the end of it all.

Joe S - Buffalo
Jim and Chris were absolutely fantastic! They are so knowledgable when it comes to realty its incredible. They work fast, efficient , and most importantly help you along the whole process. Thank you so much Hoffman team.

Natasha S - Buffalo
Dalton went above and beyond to make sure our home buying process was as smooth and quick as possible. He always gave honest feedback during showings, as if he was buying the house for himself or his family- it felt like we were shopping for homes with a friend. Very quick to respond to any questions or concerns as well. Overall the best agent we’ve had.

Tom S - Depew
Dalton was so easy to work with. Extremely knowledgeable and made the process fun. Communication was easy and it seemed like he was always accessible. We would absolutely work with Dalton again.

Heidi N – Grand Island
I cannot recommend Caroline Raimy enough! She is everything that you want in a realtor, upfront, honest, quick to respond! My husband and I knew immediately when we met her that she was "our person" and she was on our team. During this crazy market, she guided us in our house hunt, and with her tips and tricks we landed our dream home! Then it came time to sell our existing house, and with her knowledge and expertise helped us get top dollar for it. We could not be more thrilled by our experience with Caroline! I could not have imagined going through this exciting process with anyone else.

Brendan H - Lancaster
My overall experience with Warren was excellent. He got me into all the houses I wanted to look at and was able to work around my busy schedule. When we walked through the house he would point out things that were beneficial or things that you should be concerned about. I was able to find the house I wanted.

Aaron S - Depew
Warren worked with us every step of the home buying process. As 1st time home buyers my wife and I could not have been happier with Warren and the Hoffman Hunt team! They will be the only team we recommend to anyone

Aaron V – Hamburg
Warren was very helpful in walking us through our first home purchase. He was very responsive to us and very helpful as we navigated the process for the first time and never had any issue driving all over WNY to walk through houses with us. We definitely would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

Victoria R -Lackawanna
We really appreciate Caroline!! She was very helpful, knowledgeable and had the best personality!! I would recommend her to anyone buying a home!!! She is a go getter!! Thank you Caroline!!!

Michael S – Depew
If you are in the market to sell or buy a new home look no further then James Hoffman. He is extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with, always has your best interest in mind and makes sure he is available to answer any of your questions or concerns.

Carly L – Lackawanna
I could not say enough good things about Amber, she is always quick to respond to questions and is so knowledgeable about the housing market and anything involving the process. I am so happy with my new home, I’m definitely saving her information for the future because I wouldn’t trust anyone else to help us with buying or selling!!! You won’t be disappointed.

Rich O – Cheektowaga
Jim Hoffman and his team of real estate professionals are always a pleasure to work with! Jim is very knowledgeable, attentive, honest and a true professional. Jim approached the sale of my house with a marvelously detailed marketing plan that assured the quick sale of my house at maximum value! Jim's plan show-cased the house and after only 3 days on the market, generated multiple offers from serious buyers. i would not hesitate one bit to recommend Jim and his team to anyone who is serious about buying or selling real estate! Thank you Jim and your awesome team!!

Mary M – Williamsville
Amber has an extremely strong work ethic, determination, knowledgeable, and endless energy, all of which she focuses on her clients. She is also honest and reliable. She is, without a doubt, the best real estate agent we have worked with.

Elizabeth F – Hamburg
Carrie did a great job showing several different homes and she was able to get into the homes super fast. When we found our dream home, she was great with putting together a contract that was perfect. She walked us thru the whole process right until we closed and beyond! She was always there with answers to our questions.

Lori & Wayne G – East Amherst
Buying a home during a pandemic was stressful enough... but we also relocated from 400 miles away. Holli’s expertise & demeanor made our house hunting appear flawless! She was always responsive and helped us understand what to expect. Her diligence and strategic approach helped us make the most of our house hunting trips in WNY. I especially appreciated her no nonsense approach, she really knows what to look for, and pointed out situations that were not readily noticeable to me and my husband. She listened to our wants and needs, answered all our questions, and she helped us purchase a home we love! Thank you Holli, we are very happy! Also thanks to Jim and the Hoffman Hunt Real Estate Team!

Asseil H – Buffalo
Dalton Scalf is the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. Very professional, experienced and very helpful agent. Highly recommend. I have bought few properties through him and he is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He really cares about his clients as well as the community and neighborhood he lives in.

Allyson Y – Lancaster
The market for home buyers right now has been absolutely insane, however prior to working with Amber we struggled with a realtor who offered poor communication and so many missed opportunities. We had probably seen 50 houses before coming to Amber and had lost out an at least 5 offers made. As first time home buyers, you don’t know what you don’t know. The Hoffman real estate team at Hunt really took the time to educate us, both prior to viewing homes, and in the home hunting process. After seeing 4 houses with Amber we found the one we wanted and couldn’t be happier to have bought our amazing first home. Amber truly dedicated herself to our home buying process and fought hard for us in every aspect of the transaction...we couldn’t be luckier to have found her and her team and look forward to working with her again in the future...you can’t go wrong working with this wonderful team!

Bryan M – East Amherst
Warren was very knowledgeable about the area we were looking to buy a house and about updates to the house and the property if needed. He was definitely honest. I completely trusted that he wouldn’t let us move into a home that wasn’t safe for our family. We were always greeted with a huge smile every time we met with him. He’s a very nice, caring, honest person.

Carrie V – Clarence
I can’t imagine a better realtor than Warren. He’s got a great personality, down to earth, and genuinely honest. We connected right away. He’s the kind of guy that will go way out of his way to get you your dream home. He tries hard not to deliberately sway you from a house you may like, trying to “sandwich” the negative aspects with some positive features, but I always felt confident in my decision to walk away from a house because I trust Warren’s knowledge and experience. We dragged him all over WNY and even I would have gotten impatient with myself but not Warren. He quickly learned our taste and when our future home popped up on the market, he just knew we’d love it. We loved working with Warren so much that we asked him to sell our current home at the time and he did such a great job (despite having to face the burdens that COVID19 brought on the real estate industry), it couldn’t have been any smoother. He’s the kind of guy that you want to have as your personal guy, like if he was an accountant or a lawyer, that you get to continue the professional relationship, but alas we don’t see ourselves moving again anytime soon. He’s also the kind of guy you would want to be friends with after the professional relationship came to an end. Over all great realtor, great guy!

Nick & Liz S - Lancaster
Amber helped us sell our home and find (and get) our dream home! She was amazing from start to finish. She is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, hardworking, and patient. Amber was always available whenever we needed anything, always making us feel at ease - even during stressful times. We absolutely recommend Amber and honestly feel she is the best in the business!

Susan H – Tonawanda
Dana is smart, capable and knowledgeable. She worked well with everyone involved. Dana sold my property quickly and took care of every detail. I would highly recommend Dana and would absolutely work with her on future real estate transactions.

Rosemary L – East Amherst
Mr. Hoffman is very professional and knowledgeable. His experience speaks for itself. Since I wasn't familiar with the current real estate market, Mr. Hoffman walked me through the steps of putting my home up for sale and advised me as to what to expect. He kept me informed as to the showings of my home and the feedback he was receiving from these showings. I strongly recommend Mr. Hoffman without any hesitation.

Tony L -East Amherst
I contacted Jim Hoffman after he was highly recommended to me by one of the most highly visible and successful Real Estate Companies in South Carolina, Blake Sloan. I am a retired Federal Agent and during my 25 year career moved 5x. During each move I sold my current residence and purchased a new residence. This required me to work with several different Real Estate agents. With that experience, by far the most successful Real Estate transaction was the one recently conducted by James Hoffman. He addressed all the issues and provided excellent guidance, such that once the issues were addressed and the house was formally listed and put up for sale with in the 1st 7 days we have 12 to 15 viewings which resulted in 4 offers. The accepted offer was $12,000.00 over the asking price. I firmly believe this was because of the professional and experienced eye Jim provided. My residence was on the market for 2 weeks. Following the offer acceptance Jim continued his professional involvement until the closing which was concluded without a hitch!!! I strongly recommend James Hoffman.

Judy M – Clarence
It was a pleasure working with Amber in the sale of our home. She walked us through this process with great communication skills, excellent industry knowledge and outstanding attention to detail. Because of her techniques in presenting the home in such a positive manner we were able to sell our  house in just three days. Her attention to detail throughout the entire process was far more than expected. We highly recommend Amber for any real estate transaction you may have upcoming.

Matt & Lexi S – Oakfield
We are first time homeowners... couldn't ask for a better agent. She was with us every step of the way. She was always in contact with us for everything and responded to our inquiries instantly and was able to meet with us to look at houses anytime we wanted. She knew what we wanted, knew what  our budget was, didn't push and gave plenty of advice on how to get our perfect house in this now competitive market. She recommended a great lawyer and awesome mortgage company who got it done and closed ON TIME! Even after we closed, she still followed up and helped us with other things pertaining to our purchase agreement. I hope when we buy our retirement home to have her as our agent. Thank you Amber!

Chris T - Orchard Park
The Hoffman Team including Jim, Chris and Dana are the reason my family was able to move into our dream home. Without them or with any other team this would not have been possible. Throughout our purchase we experienced our closing date being cancelled twice (by the seller), a seller who filed bankruptcy mid transaction, a seller who was not even in the same state, or prepared the house by the day of closing, and even a global pandemic (Covid 19). Not only did the team explain and keep me aware of what is going on, but also explained what each of their next steps was going to be to keep me reassured, aware and calm the entire time. Because of their knowledge and skill we were able to purchase our home for 20K below asking price, which was already recently reduced by 30k. We soon learned that the sellers then regretted accepting our offer and decided they would do everything they could to have us pull our of the contract. Knowing we wanted this home for our family and our future the Hoffman team made sure that everything we did was professional, on time, and done properly. I am fully confident that there is no other team that could have made this happen for us with all of the challenges and hurdles that they had to overcome. As well during this unprecedented time of a Global Pandemic and with the market and mortgage rates changing by the day Dana took on the challenge of selling our old house. Not only did she prepare it perfectly for pictures, but also held virtual open houses as the country was shut down and in quarantine. Because of Dana's knowledge and ability to quickly learn and adapt to new technology we were able to sell our old house in 3 weeks, and for our asking price as well. If your thinking about buying or selling a new house, the Hoffman Team will give you the knowledge, skill, and ability to make your dreams become reality.

Dave Z – Depew
I can't say enough good things about Jim Hoffman. Having already relocated I was dealing with a significant amount of stress over the sale of my home. I did my due diligence and felt I had a good idea of what market value was; however, I was prepared to take a loss because I felt my situation put  me at a disadvantage with buyers. I spoke with some folks in the business who confirmed I might have to settle for less. I had worked with Jim almost 30 years ago and it was a very positive experience. I felt it wouldn't hurt to give him a call. Best decision I could have made. Jim was respectful of the advice I was given, but felt strongly my home would sell quickly at the price I was asking, and perhaps higher. His confidence gave me confidence so I had Jim handle the listing. The house sold on the first day...above asking price. I was thrilled. But it didn't end there. After the sale, Jim facilitated negotiations with myself and the buyer over my home's contents. Everyone came out a winner. Jim Hoffman isn't a real estate agent, he's a real estate professional. He cares about property; but, more importantly, he cares about people. I highly recommend him.

Mike D - Amherst
I hired Amber to sell my house. She explained the process right in the beginning so I knew exactly what was going to happen. A few days later my house listed and the pictures she posted were amazing. The house was a tough sell because in was a higher priced house in a new neighborhood that was  still building new houses. Amber generated great interest in my house and I had many showings. Amber kept me advised of all showings and what the potential buyers thought. Selling a house is a nerve racking experience but Amber was very responsive to any question or concern I had. The house did sell and I got full asking price. I thought job of my realtor would be done after an offer was accepted but Amber and her team kept me informed of everything that was taking place in order to close on my house. Never once did I ever feel Amber did not care. She was extremely attentive from the point I contacted her until the day of the closing. I definitely recommend Amber for all your realtor needs.

Nakia F – Cheektowaga
I had a wonderful experience with Amber she very knowledgeable, patient and overall just great at what she does. She helped to make buying my first home a great experience if your looking to buy a home she’s your go to person.

Clare B – West Seneca
We were referred to Amber by a family member after "quite the experience" with our first realtor. Let me say, Amber was truly a breath of fresh air! From the first open house we visited with Amber, we knew we found an AMAZING realtor. While she warned us about the market in the beginning, we didn't know our Home Buying Adventure would last SO LONG. Amber was patient during the entire process, and more importantly she's knowledgeable about the work she does! Amber's Hunt Team, was also phenomenal and supportive from beginning to end! I HIGHLY recommend hiring Amber. Although she has an exceptional reputation, please see for yourself how GREAT she can be for you as well.

Rick & Stacey F - Buffalo
Holli is my vote for real estate agent of the year!  Extremely patient, she worked with us for 2 years to find the right house without ever pressuring us to buy anything we looked at.  With a hot market in the city of Buffalo and houses selling in days, Holli always got us in to see any house we wanted to see at a time that was convenient to us.  She also didn't stop working for us after we closed.  When a tenant renting our garage would not vacate, Holli went above and beyond and personally offered to pay for a storage facility with her own money and arranged for manpower and a truck to move everything.  I wouldn't hesitate to use her again, and I have referred her to a friend who used her to sell their house.
 Being new to the real estate industry, I'm glad we worked with Jim and his team.
