If you need a divorce attorney,Bernie is the one you want on your side.

Let me make your real estate agent search easy: PICK BERNIE. My wife and I were first time homebuyers in Philly and reached out to Bernie. He immediately responded to our email with a phone call to discuss exactly what we were looking for (we had an idea, or at least thought we did at that point). He then regularly sent us listings and quickly responded to all of our emails. We searched for a home for a little over a year, and our price point changed a little during that time, which could understandably be annoying to some agents. Bernie, though, was never pushy and we never felt pressured. He would actually point out negative things about properties that we liked that never even crossed our minds so that we were very informed buyers. He truly wanted us to find the best house possible for our needs. When we finally did find a house, we put an offer in and there was a bidding war, which was stressful. But, Bernie held our hands through the entire process and made it easy. In the end, we ended up getting the house for a lower purchase price than the other potential buyer offered, because Bernie was able to convince the sellers that we were a better choice for the home based on our financials. Additionally, because he’s an attorney, he was able to answer all of our questions regarding the numerous contracts required to buy a home, so we didn’t feel like we were just randomly signing papers. He was clearly more knowledgeable than most of the agents that worked for the sellers that we interacted with, who would submit documents that were riddled with errors. All in all, we could not be happier with Bernie and the house that he helped us find. We will be strongly recommending him to all of our friends and family for their future real estate needs.
Mr. Faigenbaum & his team were excellent! in terms of my engagement with him and his firm. Specifically, I was selling my home by myself and used Bernard's services from beginning to end. He handled all applicable transactions as expected. In addition, he was an excellent "coach" in that we had a brief email exchange every Monday AM on what was due during the week and then we both focused on results. But where I was even more appreciative of his help was how he kept me from making a major rookie mistake with a potential renter AND always staying focused on "getting to the Closing check!" I have since left Philly, but there isn't a month that goes by where I say to myself, "I need to find my next Faigenbaum." I couldn't have been happier.
