Sean did excellent work marketing our 154 acres. His contacts and coordinating on site with the various trades were key to presenting our property in the best possible light. Sean’s market knowledge, presentation and negotiation skills helped us get the price we wanted.
I have used Sean Ginella for two major real estate purchases over the last couple of years. On both purchases Sean was very responsive to all my communications and needs. He operates on a problem solving basis and deals with the minor problems, that all real estate purchases have, in a calm and relaxed manner. At the same time he gets the job done quickly and efficiently. On my last purchase he really worked hard with me and the seller to come up with a package that worked within my budget. I had a very rigidly set maximum budget and a specific property I wanted to purchase and Sean persisted until he got exactly what I wanted. I won’t hesitate to use Sean next time I have any real estate needs.
