My wife and I walked into George’s office right off the street. After working with several other brokers on our first home purchase, we were a bit bewildered and confused by everything. Even being long-time residents of Astoria, we still had issues navigating things.
We’d both heard George’s name over the years and lived nearby, so stopping by was an easy decision. George spent 90 minutes with us finding out what we were looking for, walking us through how he saw things working, and throwing in a bunch of great (and educational) stories over that hour and a half. George was willing to do whatever we wanted, though was always able to offer advice all the way. He was willing to show us any listing, whether he repped it or not, he knew almost all the other realtors in the area, and never once pressured us into anything. A little over a week ago we closed on a home. George took us to the open house, walked us through how to think of an offer, helped us figure out great terms for that offer, and ultimately held our hands through having our offer accepted. The whole contract and closing process with George was a breeze and he was always there if we needed anything, even to know if there was some time to look at patio furniture at the house. I would highly recommend George Halvatzis to anyone!
