"It was a pleasure working with a professional like Jesse Berger. I relied on his knowledge and his long experience...He understood early on what my interests and my financial capability were, and he arranged visits...accordingly. He took the time to assess with me...the pros and cons on the apartments. Jesse was especially helpful when it came to all the complications of finalizing a deal. I relied on his extraordinary expertise, his network of reliable contacts (banks, lawyers), his seriousness and know-how to mount a dossier. I couldn't have dreamt of a better agent. Also, Jesse has a great sense of humor... kindness, pleasantness, and compassion. He was a broker and is now a friend." P.S.
