I had the pleasure of working with Frank in 2008 while in search for my “home”. After working with several real estate agents and not being quite satisfied, we viewed one of Frank’s listings and were quite pleased with his demeanor. He is insightful and honest. Once we found the home of our dreams, we stumbled on many obstacles (as this was a foreclosure with a bank in Florida). Frank stood by our side and walked us through every step. He was always willing to go the extra mile and had it not been for him we would have likely given up on our search. Many thanks! KarinaKarina BatistaFrank is a great real estate agent he is very patient, he listens to you so he can understand exactly what you want. I have recommended Frank to all my friends because he works hard for his clients. Marina P.Marina PhilWhen my son and I decided to move from New York City to Newburgh in 2007 to buy our first home, we had no idea of what to look for in what was a seller's market in those days. He guided us through the process very patiently and made many intelligent suggestions. Ultimately we got a historic house that has presented us with a number of challenges that are part of buying an old house ,but, all in all, it has been worth it. Thank you, Frank.Esther KhannaWhen I was looking for a rental, Frank Rivera provided service that was prompt, professional and courteous. The reason I chose to work with Frank was his promptness and reliability. The quality of the apartment he found my family was superb and just what we needed. Frank was true to his word, and even went the extra mile to ensure our move-in was smooth. Thank you for such excellent service!Raymonda DerrellIt is no mystery that real estate agents can often be the car salesmen of the real estate world.
