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!

Great job from initial contact to well after closing. Warren answered all of our questions and promptly replied to every text and call. Warren exhibits attention to detail and a very friendly personality that made our sale comfortable and stress free. Great job to Warren and the entire Team Hoffman, well done!

James & Jackie H - Cheektowaga
Warren helped us both find a new home and sell our old one. We did this during these trying times. Hands down the best realtor that we have ever worked with. Very knowledgeable and personable. Very attentive to our needs and always on top of his game.

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!

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.

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.

I began my search for a home in July of 2020. I was connected with Dalton through Zillow and ended up not being able to see the townhouse I was originally looking at. A few weeks later, I came across the perfect place for me and contacted Dalton on a whim. He responded immediately and connected me with his team at Hunt to get pre-approved for a mortgage. Dalton and his team got me ready to put an offer in for a townhome within days. When the offer was accepted, Dalton and his team walked me through the entire process so that I could understand since this was my first experience buying a home. He checked in during the process and answered any and all questions. The entire process was extremely easy and pleasant. I highly recommend working with Dalton and his team members, most notably Diane Sovereign and Maha Hammad!

House search began with Carrie giving us an honest assessment of the condition of prospective property. Based on that we chose not to buy, and instead chose to look at other homes. Carrie asked a lot of questions and gave guidance along the way, without pressure. When we found a home, she continued to advocate for us until the deal was complete.

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.

Kim S – Depew
Stayed positive despite pandemic, complete photos and video, so showings could begin virtually. Carrie is very professional and was excellent in reviewing comparable townhouses to set the listing and adjust as needed to be competitive in the market.

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!

Amanda B - West Seneca
Dalton was great! He exhibited expert knowledge regarding every facet of the home buying experience and went above and beyond to keep me updated every step of the way! He displayed excellent liaison skills, creating a simple and open communication channel between the mortgage lender, my real estate lawyer, and myself to ensure we were all on the same page throughout this entire process. Additionally, Dalton came to home tours prepared with everything you’d need to know about each particular house. He also openly expressed his professional opinion as to whether or not a house was priced appropriately and indicated if he thought a house would end up being a “money pit” down the road due to deficits, such as a poor foundation or a roof that was in ill repair, rather than simply trying to sell me anything he possibly could just to make a quick buck; Dalton genuinely cared about ensuring this home was everything I wanted and more (which probably was not an easy feat during a pandemic!). I would 100% recommend Dalton to friends and family, as well as enlist his realty services for future home buying endeavors.

Pamela D - Amherst
I would highly recommend Dalton Scalf to anyone needing a real estate agent. He has excellent knowledge of the local housing market. The process of listing my house and completing the paperwork was very thorough. All my questions and concerns were addressed. He responded to all my calls and texts immediately. My house sold quickly and above the listed price. Five stars!

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.

Christina C – Sloan
Dalton was very informative and answered any questions I had very politely. He was also very quick to respond on everything in the house buying process. This was my first time buying a home and he was very helpful on what I should expect.

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.

Aeryaen A – Amherst
I heard about Ms. Amber through a friend. Really, she was highly recommended and she did amazing job to help in a buying house; focused on details like foundation, design, location, schools, age of roofing and in during critical time of Covid 19 she used virtual video. It was 95% as in the house and we bought it.  I encourage people to contact her and hiring her to get the dream house. Many Thanks for Amber

Derek K – Amherst
Dalton is amazing. Wouldn’t use anybody else as my realtor. Always motivated to work. Answers any call, text or email instantly no matter what time or day it is.

Ben M & Shayne T – Williamsville
Hands down the best relator that we have ever worked with. Very knowledgeable and personable. We had specific wants/needs that of course changed during the house hunting experience. Throughout it all Warren was very patient with us, always available to answer our questions, and helped us make  inform decision. We had also dragged him to some duds, but he was always upbeat and gave his honest opinion. We finally got a house we love and we couldn't have done it without Warren. Can't recommend Warren enough.

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.

Leondard M-Clarence
Carrie was just a real pleasure to work with. She has so many great personal and business traits. I don't usually write reviews but I just had to here. As an FYI, we're from Boston and had to do a lot of things from afar and Carrie was just so patient with us. Here are some  adjectives/descriptions of Carrie and the experience: * Personable * Very honest and forthright * Worked her butt off * Smart and empathetic * Always keeping us updated * The closing went very well * They helped us at every point from looking to closing * I would recommend Carrie and her team any day of the week. Just fantastic. Thank you Carrie!

Emily D – Amherst
Nate is the BEST! Throughout the entire process whether you’re selling or buying (I did both with him) he is intelligent, honest and kind. He responds quickly and on the off chance he doesn’t have the answer he lets you know and he goes to find out for you. Working with Nate is a dream! I was  nervous after hearing horror stories from friends/family about how rough realty can be, but they obviously didn’t have a realtor like Nate. Without a doubt, he is the realtor you should want, and 100% the realtor you need.

 Maria T – Lockport
Nate wasn’t our original realtor. After meeting him at a few open houses, my boyfriend and I realized he was more familiar and eager to get us into the fixer upper price point we needed to be in. As soon as we found a house, he was prompt and eager to show it to us. After finding our home, he was  helpful and well educated on the process when it came to put our offer in. We were strategic and patient when announcing our price point and it paid off. With some small hiccups along the way on the seller’s end, Nate kept us calm during times of uncertainty and he remained persistent on our behalf during the sale and closing. This was the purchase of our first home and when the time comes, we will turn to Nate again to help us find our second.

Brad M – Tonawanda
Warren contacted me when I requested a realtor from Zillow, and that was the first step in a smooth process in buying my first home. He was extremely accommodating and fast to reach out to the sellers of the many prospective homes I wanted to look at. Even last-minute viewing requests were approved due to his responsiveness. When it came to the contract and documents, Warren was able to send them with urgency and always amended them quickly when needed in order to move the process along with ease. He listens well to what you want and will tell you right away if he thinks that a house or area is not good for what you are looking for, and also will point out any issues he sees when looking at them. I would highly recommend Warren to anyone who is looking for quality realtor who will treat you well and really listen to what you are wanting out of the process, especially anyone who is a first-time buyer.

Amanda A – Lackawana
Awesome guy and wonderful realtor. Compassionate, caring and hears what you actually want. Highly recommend. Had our place sold in 2 days and got over asking!

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.

Andy & Caila V – Williamsville
Carrie and Jim were awesome! They helped us to get our house sold in three days. We had a multiple offer situation and Carrie helped secure us a cash deal above listing price! Carrie also helped us over several months during the search process and ultimately helped us to negotiate the deal on our brand new house! Thank you so much Carrie & Jim!

Angelena W – Buffalo
I worked with Warren about 13 months and he was very attentive, patient, thorough and reassuring the whole process... I had cold feet in the beginning, so the house hunt was put off for about 8 months and he answered every text and call immediately, checked into every address and it's tax info as I requested. When time came that we found our home, we ran into a lot of issues due to the seller and Warren went above and beyond working them out for us. Working around the clock, advocating on our behalf with city boards, inspectors and the sellers’ incompetent team!! Would absolutely recommend Warren to everybody purchasing or selling. Even with all the bumps in our process, he made it a very smooth and enjoyable experience as first time home buyers.

Anne D - Akron
Nate is very committed. Very customer oriented and goes above and beyond for the best possible results.  I recommend him to anyone who want a dedicated, experienced and compassionate agent.  Thanks Nate.

Brandon and Kelsey B – Alden
Working with Amber was a real pleasure! She was very flexible and prompt with both looking for a house and selling our house. It took us over a year to find the right home, but she never gave up! Highly recommend Amber as an agent!

Derek K – Buffalo
A++ Communication, professionalism, and just overall great to work with. Did an awesome job for me and would recommend to anybody. Dalton always got back to me immediately and was always in communication. Got more then what I thought I could get for my house. I could not be any happier!

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.

Kim & Brad T. - Amherst
Dana was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in assisting us in finding the right home. We viewed 25-30 homes over the course of two months and Dana was very accommodating to our schedule. She would videotape and explain the homes to me she and my husband were viewing and be my eyes when I wasn’t able to make the trip. Dana and the entire team were very knowledgeable regarding reverse mortgages and other negotiations and I would highly recommend her.

Gary P.- Cheektowaga
Jim's experience was key to helping us sell our family home. He provided guidance to us from the point of listing to its ultimate sale. We were amazed by the number of offers we received in a very short period of time. Jim helped us navigate the pros and cons of each offer which was critical in getting the deal we wanted. His support team quickly provided documents to us for signature which kept the process moving. They also provided great communication along the way so you never had to worry about the next steps. Being new to the real estate industry, I'm glad we worked with Jim and his team.
