Our Testimonials

Patrick Southern listed and sold my Hoboken condo and I could not have been happier. We talked a number of times over three years as I rented out the property as an investment. As soon as I was ready to pull the trigger and list, Patrick was there to work with me every step of the way from determining the list price, to discussing a sale strategy, to completion of the sale. I received multiple offers and was very pleased with the offer and price I ultimately accepted. I live in San Francisco and so it was of the utmost importance that I have an agent who I could trust to run the show from 3000 miles away. Patrick and his stellar staff did just that--taking care of necessary details, getting documents as necessary to me on the West Coast, communicating with me in a timely manner despite the time difference, and generally making the process smooth for me even though I was far away. I am an agent myself in San Francisco and so I know how great Patrick is. Highest marks for knowledge of the market, professionalism, and responsiveness.

Anthony helped me purchase my first home (a 2 bed, 2 bath condo) in Hoboken in July 2015. To rate him a 5* is an understatement. Having lived in Hoboken for eight years and had friends buy places during my time there I thought I knew what I was doing, but having Anthony help me throughout the process proved to me why you MUST work with a realtor that knows the area in which you are looking.
Being my first home buying experience Anthony did an incredible job of laying out the home buying process and walking me through each step - he was even able to recommend professionals in other areas for me to work with throughout the process (mortgage broker, lawyer, even a painter)! He even dealt with my NUMEROUS questions (at all hours) and did so promptly and with a smile!
Most importantly he listened to what I was looking for and only showed me properties that appealed to me and made sense.

Working with anyone besides Anthony to find your next home would be a huge mistake!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Hoboken, NJ.

We really enjoyed working with Anthony. Originally, he contacted us because he'd noticed I had been checking out real estate in Hoboken. I was just fantasizing about purchasing a vacation condo. We visited 2 years ago, and Anthony knew quite well that we weren't ready to consider a purchase, but he graciously showed us properties anyway and gave us a sense of the lay of the land in Hoboken. He showed us properties again a year and a half later. Finally, in August we visited again and said we were still undecided, but he met with us again and showed us properties. He gave us lots of time. We fell in love with a place and took the plunge, and he's been very helpful at getting us through the whole process. I really appreciate all of Anthony's help--and his patience!

We began our home search with Shaye Lastra in Spring 2013. After speaking with several realtors, Shaye was the person we wanted to work with because she had an exceptionally work ethic, and was very knowledgeable about the area and process.

Shaye and her team showed my husband and I several homes, and helped us put in several offers (we were out-bid). Shaye was very organized and thorough, and constantly checked in and followed up with us, which was very important as we were searching for a property in an extremely competitive market. She was very easy to reach and always available (even on nights and weekends), and was prompt with returning calls when she was not able to pick up the phone herself.

In the end, we purchased a home through a different realty company because the seller had an exclusive contract through a different broker. Shaye fully encouraged us to pursue the home, despite the fact that this would mean the loss of a sale for her and we had been working with her for months. She even put us in touch with a realtor within the other company whom she trusted.

Even though she was no longer our realtor, Shaye kept in touch with us throughout. Due to the rapport we had built, we called her several times throughout the purchasing process to ask for advice when our realtor was on vacation, and when we needed an unbiased opinion. I am sorry that we were not able to finish the process with Shaye, but we are so grateful for having begun the process with her. I highly recommend Shaye for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Jersey City/Hoboken area.
