We chose Steve Frattarola to be our agent when we sold our house and land in NY. He was excellent in helping us stage our old house and get it ready for sale. He told us what he thought we needed to do and it did not entail a lot of needless expenses. He took great pictures that captured our house and property’s best features. He was honest about what he felt was the best price point. We wanted to sell within a few months and did not want to hold through another winter. Our house had a few unusual (artistic) touches and was not a split level ranch. We knew it would have appeal to only some potential buyers. We did a multiple listing and were well served by Steve’s network and relationships with his colleagues. We quickly had several interested interested buyers, one of whom did purchase the house. Steve “held our hand” and guided us through the whole process. We had lived there for almost 40 years and were somewhat apprehensive about how to proceed.
We would certainly recommend Steve as an agent for anyone who would like to sell their home quickly and fairly. He is able to navigate the entire process with honesty, expertise, no frills preparation and staging, and great humor.

Steve, I honestly don't believe I could have done this sale/purchase without you! I mean that sincerely. Your positive approach always guided me through the tough decisions I had to make. Thank you. You have done so much more than any other agent could have. Literally there every step of the way. When I felt this wan't going to happen a few times, you pulled me up and assured me it would. And it did. My husband and two kids and I are so grateful.

Steve was a great agent for both the sale of our old home, as well as purchase on our new one. He made himself readily available to us, talked us through and explained many of the confusing processes, and always had an energetic smile on his face!

Steve was the best! We had a couple different agents come in and they were not able to get on the same page as my wife and I. Steve was different, he listened to us and took into account what we had to say. He knew exactly what to ask for and how to handle the minutia of selling our place. 100% recommend him!

Steve assisted us with selling a home in Mahopac, we live up in the Albany area and it was very stressful getting the house ready for Sale ! Once we got Steve involved it was if the weight was lifted. He came up with a plan, to best showcase and Market the property. He made recommendations and suggestions to help move the Sale as quick as possible! We interviewed several other Agents before choosing Steve. So glad we made the right choice!

Without any hesitation, Steve is one of the most professional and rapid fire realtors with whom I have ever had the pleasure of working. He is truly UNSTOPPABLE! I come from a real estate family, so this is saying a large mouthful. I recommend him FAR beyond the masses.

Working with Steve to sell my house was as stress-free as this process can be for anyone. This was the third time I had tried to sell my house and this time, it worked! Steve listened to me, offered his advice and assistance when necessary, and worked diligently until the house sold. He was honest and sincere, completely upfront about any issues or problems, and was always available.

During the very stressful home buying process, if there was one constant in all this was the professionalism and expertise of Steve Frattarola. He made our experience as flawless and smooth as can possibly be. Whenever i had a question no matter what it was you can make sure Mr Frattarola was there to answer the phone or get back to me within minutes from his busy schedule. Steve would check in with us from time to time to give us updates and make sure we were ok. You can be sure without question that any future homes we buy we will look no further that him. He helped me and my family's dream come true with his knowledge, patience, and by always being in touch. THANK YOU STEVE, you are one of a kind!!

Steve is warm and approachable. His knowledge coupled with his positive and laid back approach made working with him a pleasure. He listens to his clients and doesn’t push them into decisions, but rather provides insight from his experience and allows the client to come to their own decision. He was wonderful to work with!

Steve helped us find our first home. He spent weekends driving us around until we found the house we wanted. He never made us feel like we we're imposing or being too picky. He understood how important the decision was and didn't stop until we were happy!!

Steve is a man who gets results. He worked tirelessly to make sure we got what we wanted for the sale of our home. He was always reachable at all times of the day. He's an effective communicator, and I highly recommend him for any real estate transaction you may have in the future.

We had to sell my mother's townhouse after she passed. Time was of the essence as we had to pay taxes and association fees each month it was on the market. Steve was very knowledgeable and was able to provide suggestions during a very difficult time for us. We put our trust in his hands and he did everything to make it an easy, comfortable process. We were able to sell within a few months of placing it on the market.

This was my 2nd home purchase and what a difference working with Steve compared to my first experience. He is knowledgeable and always there to guide. I could not have made it thru this deal without him, Thank you Steve, see you in a few years for my next home!

Mr. Frattarola was awesome. He helped make our snag-ridden purchasing process endurable. The sellers were adversarial and Steve had our backs and was a calming influence all the way. He's also a good guy.

We have worked with Steve Frattarola a number of times in the past. He is a very qualified professional and would not hesitate to use him in the future. Pleasure to deal with.

Steve is so good. We were looking for a house for a while and were really specific in what we wanted. Steve seemed to understand us and what we wanted far more than any previous agent, which meant we were viewing serious contenders really quickly. It was an exciting and satisfying process working with Steve from beginning to end, I really cant recommend him enough.

Steve was very easy and pleasant to work with during the recent sale of my house. His thorough knowledge of the market and expertise in pricing and negotiating helped me attain an excellent price for my house. Steve is a true professional. Thanks for all of your help Steve.

Steve helped us find our wonderful new home in Valhalla at a time when a seller's market made finding a house, putting in a bid, and closing a deal a huge obstacle to overcome! Because inventory was so low, houses were flying off the market as soon as they were listed. Thankfully, Steve was always available when we would call and say "We have to see this house today at 2 PM!" His responsiveness, availability, and calm manner got us through a very stressful process. We also very much appreciated that we didn't get the "hard sell" with every house we looked at. Steve would walk us through, answer any questions, then basically let my husband and I explore and discuss without any hovering! I would highly recommend Steve to anyone searching for a home in this difficult market.
