"Marjorie Allabastro and her brother Matthew are nothing short of the best real estate brokers I have ever dealt with. My background is in real estate law, and so when it came time to engage brokers to purchase our first home, my past experience made me wary and suspicious of brokers, but Marjorie and Matthew almost instantly dissolved all my concerns.

They are conscientious, knowledgeable, and diligently fierce advocates for their clients. It is hard to know where to start in terms of heaping on praise. When we started working with them, they spent a great deal of time and care asking about our unique needs, desires and aversions. They listened closely and were able to craft tours all over the city showing us buildings that aligned with our goals.

Marjorie and Matthew have a tremendous knowledge of the city, and we never took a tour with them without learning something new about the areas we were visiting. Further, with a family background in construction, they also have a deep knowledge of the ins and outs of a building, and were able to alert us to possible hidden issues we would not have noticed on our own. They were absolutely invaluable resources in this and many other respects.

Throughout the very stressful process of buying our new home, Marjorie was always available to us even at very odd hours. In fact, I have secret suspicions that Marjorie may never actually sleep! She was generally responsive within minutes of a phone call, text or email. She went out of her way to make sure we were aware that informing us and advocating for us were her primary goals.

Our seller turned out to be a very difficult and problematic individual, and closing was fraught with issues. Where every other broker I have dealt with would be impatiently drumming their fingers and waiting for their commission, Marjorie and Matthew instead continued to staunchly support us and advocate for us. We could not be more grateful that we had them at our sides during this stressful process. Well after closing Marjorie continues to reach out and send us helpful insight and information and offer support. We will be forever grateful to them.

There could truly be no better in this business. I wholeheartedly recommend the Allabastros without qualification or reservation. They will easily meet and exceed all expectations."

"Working with Marjorie was wonderful. Having a real estate professional who knew the process, but could also explain the process to a first time home buyer was important to us. With Marjorie, the line of communication was always open. This was critical to having our home buying experience be stress-free. It was an absolute privilege working with Marjorie."

"Marjorie was excellent in all respects! She clearly understood my needs and showed me a variety of relevant properties. She was highly responsive to all my questions about the locality, the various units, the entire buying process, and related concerns related to financing, condo rules, etc. Always felts she was looking out for my interests. Made a process that can be highly stressful feel very smooth."

"Marjorie was very helpful with a very difficult seller who had an inexperienced representative, and kept us calm and on track throughout the process.
Marjorie has a lot of contacts, so we were able to get quick feedback on some of the problems that had not been disclosed by the seller but that showed up during inspection.
When we were ready to close, the seller said she (by herself, apparently) had changed the closing date to a week later, and Marjorie helped us survive the delay without financial penalties. She made sure that we wouldn't be responsible for another surprise - piles of loose trash left in the alley by the seller - after noticing it during the walk-through.
Marjorie and her brother Matthew were always very responsive, and they continue to be important resources, even after the sale is completed."

"Marjorie went above and beyond in helping my family find our new home! Our inspection was complex and we were moving from another state. We absolutely could not have done it without her help and expertise. Her experience in real estate development really enhances her work as a broker. We cannot thank her enough!"
