I have worked with Julie Horvath on a number of real estate deals since 2002. Because of her knowledge and expertise in real estate, the Arlington market; along with her superb negotiation skills she has always left me with a very positive impression. On my last 2 sales (2014 & 2015), she priced my condo's perfectly so that I had multiple offers. She's a true professional and is there for you every step of the way. I would highly recommend Julie. There aren't enough stars to rate her. Be careful though, you might be left homeless before you know it...

Karen, words cannot do justice for all of your hard work throughout our life changing event! It was a long TWO YEARS from initial idea of relocating and very scary for our family but your patience and understanding was outstanding! Many times you provided market data for both the sale of our Arlington property and also for our future town. That type of service, dedication and understanding is what makes you the only choice anyone should make to assist in one of the most important and sometimes stressful transaction of their lives. Your truly a professional and will without hesitation refer you to anyone I meet or am asked for a recommendation.

Karen Zoeller Everything about the process of selling the home was explained so that everyone knew what was going on.She took care of the city permits, dealt with the tenants to show the apartments and coordinated the attorneys and the banks and certainly made my part easier to do.

We had a wonderful experience having Stephen Hueber sell our mother's condo. This is the 3rd property Stephen has sold for us and I wouldn't dream of ever using anyone else as our realtor. He consistently goes above and beyond to help make the entire process effortless. I can't stress enough how important it is not over-price your property. Because our properties were appropriately price we not only had multiple offers but offers that were above the asking price. I highly recommend Stephen Hueber, you will have a wonderful experience during a time that could potentially be stressful.
Lisa, Seller (Arlington)
Stephen made the sale go smoothly due to his patience, knowledge, commitment and understanding. I would reccomend him to anyone wishing to sell or buy a home. He is a delightful person who does nothing but tell you the truth all throughout the process. You know you have someone who is watching out or your best interests when you are fortunate enough to have Stephen as your broker.

By nature, I am demanding with high expectations and James was a complete Rock Star by my book. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that I know. We met James at an open house almost 2 years ago; he stayed in touch and helped us familiarize ourselves with the market and the value of my house. Last year, we decided last minute not to list our house and he and his broker were very respectful of our decision and did not feel pressured to do so. When we finally listed our house, the process was very professionally handled and efficient.
Here's a synopsis of the timelines: We decided to list our house on a Tuesday, the photographer was scheduled for Wed., the house listing went online on Thursday, broker tour on Friday, two open houses on Saturday and Sunday, and we accepted an offer, above asking price with favorable conditions by the following Tuesday. Many issues came up in the sale of the house; I will highlight a couple to showcase James exemplary service.
Firstly, it was clear that the fire inspection was not going to pass. James helped in the sourcing and scheduling of the electrician for the rewiring of all the fire alarms. He has a wide network of contractors and without fail they have come through for us. What was remarkable about this particular issue is that we were on vacation when the work was scheduled. It was unavoidable, but the electrician has left some holes in the ceiling and walls that required a handyman to patch and paint the holes. James tried to schedule a handyman but was unable on a short notice. To our amazement, he found out that he spent a late evening with his son doing the work himself on our house. This work was done 2 days before closing so it was critical that it gets done. Clearly, this was beyond our expectations and above and beyond the tour of duty and we were immensely grateful for his dedication.
Secondly, and more noteworthy and remarkable was the way that James handled some title related issues that showed up at the last minute. This is a long and convoluted story but suffice it to say that James spent more time helping us than 5 different law offices combined. He was resourceful in finding the owner title insurance company (we were on vacation), he figured out through incredible detective work that one title issue was a non-issue (5 different law offices did not spot it), he spent endless hours on the phone with my bank and their hierarchy trying to resolve two title issues that were wrongly discharged. He was again more effective than my own lawyers! I did not think that I will close on my house and was getting ready for backup plans. I have no doubt in my mind that without James' help my house would not have sold. We were encountering a difficult buyer that would not accept indemnification and all title irregularities needed to be resolved ahead of the sale, and they were in record time. Well done James!
I mentioned his network earlier and I want to highlight another example. The office recommended a paint job for the exterior of the house before selling. We called a number of painters and James referred us to someone that did the work on his mother's home. The guy was professional, punctual, got the job done with care at half the cost of the other quotes that we got. We have since recommended him to a number of our friends and was hired by two. James is a very nice person and cares about his clients. He is very resourceful, patient, and a dedicated agent and we were lucky to have met him and happy to have hired him to represent us in the sale and buying of our home.
We would not hesitate to recommend James or his broker to our friends. This is a great office, run very professionally, able to build trust through dedicated agent and knowledgeable broker.
James was the best and I have the greatest appreciation for his efforts and work on our behalf. He especially made things easy for me down the closing stretch in ways that I would think are beyond the call of duty for many realtors.
Kathy is the best! She worked tirelessy on my behalf, dealing with a mutlitude of issues that came up, and always handled problems in a professional and calm manner. She was pleasant, honest and always the professional. She is extremely knowledgeable in the entire process of home purchase from start to finish. I never had a moments doubt that Kathy was the broker for me!! I will recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home! Thank you for the opportunity to work with such a wonderful person!
