My Website

I grew up in Western New York, have lived here all of my life, and appreciate and enjoy the change of seasons, the personality of this region and everything Western New York has to offer. 
I have been counseling clients full-time, since 1985 and am grateful to be working in the real estate industry and assisting my clients in one of the most important decisions they will realize in their lives.
I have consistently placed in the top 1% of the industry and have been honored by HUNT Real Estate ERA as one of their top 10 agents since 1996, and I and my team have successfully closed over 1,848 real estate transactions.

Warren Teall
Real Estate Salesperson

As someone who thrives on being "out-and-about" and loves variety, Real Estate was a natural path for me. The fact that this profession allows me to meet new people and help them with a sometimes very difficult process makes it that much more rewarding. I relocated to Buffalo from Central New York in 2008, and in that time have seen the Queen City grow from promising - to vibrant, diverse, and full of life. 
The real estate market in Western New York can be very competitive but with my communication skills, understanding of technology, and old-fashioned persistence, I can help you realize your dreams of home-ownership.

Nathanael Budde

Real Estate Salesperson

My Website

My life journey started in the City of Buffalo. The importance of that time and the life lessons absorbed from the many facets of the people I encountered helped me be an extremely empathetic person; realizing that all people have a voice and their own special story to share.  
After earning my Associates Degree from Erie Community College I decided to begin a career in my family dry cleaning business with my step-father. I spent  20 years learning about business, customer service and how to manage. The most meaningful component of being in the dry cleaning business was the gift to work alongside family members.  It was the most difficult decision to choose to move my career in a different direction.
Now, in my first full year of real estate, I am intent on carrying over the numerous life lessons to this industry. I always strive to have the best interest of those I am assisting first, whether it be on the contractual side or the agent-client relationship of each transaction. With my attitude to provide service to others, paired with my business skills and mindset, I am determined to engage in the real estate world just as I have lived my life thus far...from the diverse city of Buffalo to the countrysides of Erie County - I am beyond proud to serve in all of your real estate needs!

I love Buffalo!  To see the transformation that has happened over the past decade makes me excited to live in the “City of Good Neighbors”.  I have lived in Buffalo for over 30 years and I am privileged to call it home. 
With my over 25 years of customer service experience, I know how important it is to listen to my clients, understand their needs and educate them on the complicated real estate process.  It’s important to me that my clients find their perfect home.  Whether you are upsizing, right-sizing or investing, I will take the worries out of the process and be in constant communication from start to close. 

Let me help you find your next home today!!!





Dalton Scalf
Real Estate Salesperson

My goal is to be there for you throughout the entire real estate process, ensuring it is as easy and stress-free as possible.

Since the age of 16, I have been in the customer service industry.  I continued to work in customer service while earning my degree in Health and Physical Education at the University of Edinboro.  After graduating and searching for a job, I realized my true passion was interacting with People on a daily basis.  Therefore, it was an easy decision to transition into the Real Estate business.  Now, instead of helping people choose their perfect dish, I am helping people find their dream home.    
Growing up in a small town then moving to Buffalo 3 years ago, I understand the appeal of both small town and city living.  Whether you are looking for a Cape Cod home in the city, or a craftsman home in the South or North towns,

I will work tirelessly to ensure that all aspects of the buying and/or selling process are taken care of.





Chris Hoffman

Transaction / Closing Coordinator

I have worked in the real estate industry since 1989. My current role in the House Hoffman Team is the Transaction / Closing Coordinator, which includes handling the closing process of team transactions once the property inspection addendum is signed until the final inspection. I complete the majority of the follow-up work, documentation, correspondence, and emails and communicate with my team agents, agents representing the other party in the transaction, our buyers' or sellers' attorney and our buyers' mortgage bank representative. My goal is to assure the buying or selling transaction for our clients and team members proceeds as smoothly as possible having effective communication and sharing of information until the successful closing.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and Minor in Psychology from SUNY at Buffalo in 1992. I enjoy reading, exercising, listening to music, and time with my friends.
