To Whom It May Concern, I am writing to express my pleasure with Bernie Schachner & Mona Nardone of Madison Estates located at 2922 Avenue R in Brooklyn. They have represented us in our recent sale of our two family home located at 245 Bay Ridge Parkway in Brooklyn, New York. From the first call, through the closing they have been by our side. This was a difficult deal being that my family has lived in the house for over forty years and had grown emotionally attached to the house. Not only did they help us with our Real Estate needs they also offered recommendations and suggestions along the way. During one of our first phone conversations Bernie tells me “I am the real deal” and in the back of my head I thought this is just another sales line but it wasn’t. Bernie and Mona worked as a team and they truly are the REAL DEAL! To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Bernie and Mona! Sincerely, John Behette
I recently had the opportunity and pleasure of working with realtor Bernie Schachner for the sale of my mom’s residence on East 15th Street, Brooklyn. Bernie found us a purchaser of the property in a quick turnaround! All through the process in making the transaction go smoothly, Bernie conducts himself in a professional manner. He is experienced, friendly, patient, courteous, cooperative and very pleasant to work with. He gave us suggestions based on his experience and helped us in every way imaginable. When we ran out of resources he came through for us in finding us what we needed to expedite the move and sale. Bernie went above and beyond what a realtor would normally do and for that, we are forever grateful. We had the opportunity to work with other realtors in the past but found Bernie to be the best one of them all! We made a friend through this sad and difficult time in our life and without Bernie and his team we would not have been able to make it a smooth transaction. Thank you Bernie for everything and we are forever thankful. We will always keep you in mind and will highly recommend you to others should they need a reliable realtor. Sincerely, Sal and Nancy Saporito
I met Bernie and Mona from Madison Estates back in February when they came to my house to make a presentation on listing my property. They were very professional and showed me how they would market my property. I felt very confident that they knew what they were saying so I chose them for my agents. I had my property on the market for a year prior with another Brokerage. Bernie and Monday had my property in contract within 90 days. My closing took place today!! Madison Estates is the Broker to use without a doubt. I would refer them to anyone looking to buy or sell property. - Eric K.
During the purchase of my new home in Mill Basin I had the pleasure of working with Bernie and Mona of Madison Estates. These two individuals went above and beyond their roles in helping us purchase our new home. From the first moment we met them and throughout the entire process Bernie and Mona were pleasant, courteous and always had a smile on their face. Bernie responded to text messages within 2 minutes no matter what time of day it was. He and Mona were always available to let us into the house (numerous times) even at odd times. This helped us evaluate contractors prior to buying the house. Bernie even went to the building department (on his own) to acquire a drawing with neither lawyer/expeditor was able to locate it. I am happy to recommend Bernie and Mona to others. Sincerely Yours, Natan Weiner
