Review from Lynn Client 10/29/2017
After working with two different realtors and putting in numerous unsuccessful offers.... All I can honestly say is.... I am so lucky/blessed to have met Fernando! When I met Fernando, I was currently working with an agent looking to purchase my first home and the whole process was just becoming stressful and unpleasant. When I saw how hard Fernando worked for his clients and how passionate he was about what he did, I knew I needed/wanted him as my realtor. After putting in so many offers prior to meeting him I was at my breaking point, ready to give up. However, Fernando always knew the right thing to say... His positives is truly unreal. He made himself available 24/7 just in case I ever had any questions or concerns and always went above and beyond. He really is one of a kind and whoever has him as a realtor should feel LUCKY to have, because I sure did.

As a first time home buyer, I felt vulnerable and uncertain in what to expect. The home buying experience is intimidating to begin with, however with Fernando as my agent, it was great to know that you always had him in your corner fighting for you. He was very passionate about his job and always had my best interest in mind. Not only did we gain a passionate agent but we gained a friend in the process. Don't think I would have had such a wonderful first-time experience of purchasing a home if I didn't have Fernando as my agent. Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent

WOW - what a ride it's been and we could not be happier this ride had Fernando as its conductor! Fernando is the guy who fights for you - he stayed on top of agents for showings, offer responses, open-houses, etc. - he REALLY wants to work for you. But Fernando's best characteristic is his positivity; buying a home is stressful and emotional, but his energy and positive attitude make it all much easier - he really made the process that much more enjoyable.
