Our Testimonials

The best compliments a company can receive is the feedback from their customers.
We have received a multitude of them over the years. This has enabled our company to build solid
relationships and good repore with our customers, clients and the communities we serve.
The following is a sample of some of the success stories from our customers:


Phil Raices exceeded all our expectations in renting
our apartment. HIs clients must be numerous, based on how many showings
there were and how quickly they occurred. Because of this, we ended up renting
(our apartment) to a wonderful tenant who fit our needs perfectly. We ran
into a few issues that were our responsbility to address. Phil expedited
solutions based on his many longstanding contacts in the community. We didn’t
expect it, but Phil made calls on our behalf, put us in touch with (the
right helpful) people. We would not have been able to rent our apartment
as quickly without his help. Phil did not stand to get a very large commission
in helping us, yet we felt we were important to him. We felt he cared to
understand and respect our wishes. He was patient with us, courteous and
kind, which is not always the case these days. (It seems) the way he treated
us is based on an excellent work ethic and overall positive personality.
Thank you Phil, you really did right by us! We appreciate you! – Mary Vygantas

Phil,

Hi Phil, hope you’re doing well. We actually just got our internet up on
Monday, so even though we’re still living among the boxes, things are actually
feeling a bit more normal.

Anyway:

After searching on the internet for months, combing through the different
realtors in Queens and Nassau county, as well as endless craiglist apartment
postings without making any real progress, we were lucky enough to call
Phil at Turn Key realty. Phil was kind, courteous, professional, and very
knowledgeable about the areas we were interested in, considering our economic
parameters. His advice, patience, and persistence helped my wife and I find
a wonderful, quiet, and inexpensive place that we love and are happy to
call home. If and when we move again, I’ll be certain to call Phil at Turn
Key Realty.

Give us a call if you’d like to swing by and see what we’ve done with the
place!

Dear Glen,

Thank you so much for helping me find an apartment in Great Neck. By the
time, I contacted you, I was exasperated and frustrated in my efforts
to find an apartment in Great Neck at my price range and my move-in date.
In a matter of hours, you were able to find apartments for me to look
at it in the exact area of Great Neck that I had told you that I wanted
to live in, with all of the amenities that I wanted, and that was within
my price range. That same day, after you patiently went from apartment
to apartment with me, I actually found the apartment that I currently
live at. Furthermore, you helped negotiate down the price for me and were
able to obtain rent at a lower price than the asking price. After a couple
of days, the lease was signed. Most brokers would have stopped there.
However, you followed up by frequently checking in with me and asking
me how I was doing. Further, there were many times that you helped me
deal with problems at the apartment, even after I had already moved in.

Thank you so much for helping me find an apartment, for making my move from
the city to Great Neck easier, and for being there even when you had no
obligation or duty to do so. Obviously, I enthusiastically recommend you
to any seller or buyer who needs your services.

Hello Phil. It has been a while. We have been doing a great deal of travel
for work and leisure. I hope this testimonial is not too late. Thanks
again for all your work.

On a Sunday in 1998 while looking to purchase
an apartment in Great Neck, I walked into Turnkey Real Estate and met
Phil. During the following weeks, Phil patiently showed me many properties
that met my criteria. He insisted however, that I should also consider
a house. I agreed, and shortly after, I found what would become a project
of love and my dream home.

Ten years later, when facing relocation due to work, I had to put my house
on the market. There was only one person I would consider to assist
me with this task; someone who knew the house and all it had meant to
me, and that was Phil.

This time, Phil had to be very persevering due to market conditions. He diligently
showed my house, held open houses, and was there to answer questions,
and guide me. I am sure he missed many family affairs during this time.
He sold my house within six months.

I am very grateful to Phil and his team. I have recommended Turn Key Real
Estate and will definitely continue to do so.

Life is beautiful,

Gloria and Lisa


The sale of my apartment could not have gone smoother. Phil Raices found a qualified buyer to purchase my apartment. He was always there to answer any questions I had and guided me through the entire process. When I am ready to sell my next property, I will be calling Phil!

Dear Phil:

Please allow me a few mintues to express my gratitude for helping me find my very first rental. I am so impressed by how detail-oriented you are and by how much personal attention I received. You answered any and all of the questions I had, continuously followed up with the other parties involved (i.e. the owner and co-op’s board), and alwasy kept me updated on where things were. You made the process very comfortable and easy for me!
I whole-heartedly recommend your services to friends and family. in the near future, when I will be looking to by property, I know where to go.
Thank you again.

Dear Phil,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all you’ve done for my wife and me.

In the beginning of 1997, you showed us real estate in Great Neck. We were looking specifically in the Great Neck Terrace apartment complex. You had a plethora of apartments to show covering a broad range of prices. There were some thate needed some TLC. I recall a different apartment you shown us-one with a glass block bedroom wall.

After studying floor plans, we decided on the model of apartment that would best suit us. You came through, finding us not only the aprtment model we wanted, but in the location we desired. You provided us with service during the sale, but providing us with service after the sale was most impressive.

At closing you told us to keep you in mind for when the time came for us to sell. We informed you that it wouldn’t be for af ew years. Yet, to everyone’s surprise, we called you about a year after we moved in.

Your approach to selling our home was most professional. You counseled us as to what fair market value was and what af air asking price would be. You showed our apartment to only those who were true prospects and not those who were simply looking around to get ideas. From what I understand, our apartment enticed many of the people to who you showed it.

You were able to get us the price we were hopeing to get for the apartment-one of the highest prices the development.

We are most pleased with the way you havwe worked with us and for us when we were looking to purchase an apartment and then when we went to sell the very same unit. We highly recommend you to others who are looking to purchase in our development and elsewhere.

Thank you again, for all you’ve done.

Sincerely,
Andrew S. M.


Dear Phil:

Now that it’s been about two months since the closing since the closing on my parents’ house in East Park, Roslyn Heights, I wanted to send you a note thanking you for your efforts on our behalf.

You were the listing agent on the house, and your energy, expertise, and input was greatly appreciated by me. I was impressed by your tremendous commitment to doing what it takes to get the job done. I also value the fact that your are not locked in to business as usual; instead, you embrace the newest technology and combine it with a service-oriented approach that combine to make the experience of selling a house as stress-free as possible.
Your resources are excellent; whenever I had a problem, question, or concern, you had an immediate answer, no doubt from your vast experience in the business, as well as your attention to detail. I also appreciated your cooperativeness with the other people involved in this sale.

Needless to say, I heartily recommend you to any seller or buyer who needs your services. It was great pleasure working with you, and I look forward to seeing you and Irene soon.
Yours very truly,

Jon Stroll

Happy Holidays,

Dear Philip Raices:

Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to participate in the job-shadowing program with me. It was very nice to meet you and to learn about the different aspects of your business. I especially enjoyed hearing that your career isn’t really a “job” where you have to wake up early in the morning and that you decide how much you would like to work and make money instead of the same usual salary. You taught me a great deal and I just want you to know that I really appreciated the opportunity of spending the day with you at work.
Jeffrey Benaim


Dear Mr. Raices

Thank you for taking the time from your busy day to help in the job shadowing program. It was very nice to meet you and to learn about the different facets of the business. I especially enjoyed how it is not a stressful job and you can set your own time schedule. I learned a lot and found it rewarding to spend the day to see what your job and business was about.

Andre Carter


Mr. Raices:

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to experience first hand how your business functions and how involved you are in running the day to day operations. The job shadowing program gave me and you the opportunity to meet and interact within a “real world” business. It was much different than what I would normally read about in a book or magazine.
Sincerely,

Ariel Levim

Dear Phil:

On behalf of the partrons and Board of the Great Neck Library, I would like to thank you for providing two very interesting and informative presentations on Thursday, March 29, 2001, entitled Selling or Burying a Home, Condo or Co-op?

The audience at both sessions was engaged and interactive. The information presented was clear and the ntoe taking by members of the audience made it obvious that there was mcuh of value to write down. Everyone in attendence–from the young first-time buyers to long-time residents thinking about selling–left feeling that they had invested their time wisely.

I will be in touch with you regarding setting up another date this coming fall.
cordially,

Muriel Turk
