My fiancé and I were lucky enough to meet Betsy Pepine and her team and have been very grateful that we did. They helped us through every step in our house hunting process! They always had very helpful advice, were extremely friendly, and so accommodating to anything we needed. If you want to make your house buying a dream come true, then go with Pepine Realty and I promise you will not regret it whatsoever. They led us to the perfect house and we couldn’t be happier.
Gianni Pena
I give a 5 stars for this review because I can’t rate them higher or I would. Betsy Pepine and her team are the best realtors you could ask for. They were extremely attentive to our home buying needs and wants. I could call them or text at anytime and their response was so fast no matter how big or little of a question. They went above and beyond helping us find a home insurance company after we had a little trouble getting a H06 policy. They called around on our behalf if we ran into a hiccup to make sure everything went very smoothly with minimal stress. I feel one of the most important qualities that Pepine Realty brought to the table was that they represented me 100% and all my needs and wants for this home purchase. They made me feel comfortable and like our family was really being looked after with this home buying purchase.
Stacey Summerlove
By far the best real estate transaction I've ever had. Will always highly recommend Pepine Realty. They made my work go effortlessly.
Dolores Rhoden
Betsy Pepine and her team were an absolute blessing to work with. They able to come in, look at the property with comparibles, and recommend a fair listing price for the house which brought multiple offers on the first weekend. They were knowledgeable and professional. They helped facilitate all communication during a difficult situation and were able navigate it perfectly without creating any awkward situations or undue stress while selling the house during a divorce. They really made the whole experience a pleasure.
