Success Stories

Atlanta Short Sale AgentsWhen I first came to your office I was so frustrated dealing with the banks I thought there was no way out. You and everyone else at Realty 1st were so knowledgeable about the short sale process and were so patient when I asked answers. Thanks to you and your professional team I am free. I really appreciate all that you and Ivy have done for me.

I would like to recommend Mark Teytel and his associates at Realty 1st to any who need a realty team who will aggressively and professionally market difficult properties. My short sale situation involved a property that simply would not move. The current market situation where my property was located had price points all over the map. Finding qualified buyers and accurate market values in that area was tough. However, after 5 months of consistent effort, Mark and his team got the job done. Special Kudos to Ivy, my Realty 1st short sale caseworker. She kept me informed every step of the way and up to the minute. Documentation required by the bank never sat in her inbox. Her efforts were efficient and on time. Once we had our best qualified buyer, she kept things moving.

Thank you to the whole team. Realty 1st is top notch.

“My New Home:

I needed an agent that would listen to me about what I wanted. I was driving down the road just then I saw Reatly 1st. I walked in Lena Zaretsky was there she said can I help you. I said I needed a house today. We looked at some areas on the computer. Lena said come back tomorrow I going to help you find a home. I was there at 9:00 the next day. We were out all day by the end of that day I had found the townhouse I was looking for.
Thank you, Lena”

“I am a professional Realtor in the state of Florida and was very careful in the process of selecting another professional real estate agent for the sale of my secondary home in Atlanta area. I used the research data from Mike Ferry Organization and selected one of the most prioductive agents in my area. I was very happy with the level of professionalism and dedication demonstrated during the sales process. Goals were achieved quickly with the best possible outcome for me. Thank You, Mark and your entire team of professionals!”

“Dear Mark Teytel,
We bought the house with you 12 years ago and remember how easy you made this process look to us. We were very happy at that time, but never expected that our relationship will remain strong after the closing and for so many years. Any time there is a question regarding the property, we know we can count on your expertise and advice. Thanks for staying in touch with us all this time and being relentless on landing hand on every house related issue. We are fortunate to have you representing us continuously!

“Without Sveta Lechtchenko I doubt we would’ve bought our dream house. We have explained what we wanted and have not wasted time on the houses we wouldn’t like. She was always there, answering all our questions, dealing with all, even the smallest issues. She has negotiated great price. It was our first house and now I feel like I knew all the details but without necessity to handle them by myself. She is what I call a professional!”
Thank you…
