Wayne Cohen was a pleasure to work with in the purchase of our new home. He has great knowledge about every aspect of the home-buying process. He answers questions and issues in a very timely manner. I don’t think we ever had to wait more than 20 minutes for a reply to a text or phone call. He really listened to what we were looking for and guided us quickly into homes we really liked. Once we made an offer, Wayne guided us through the process, making sure we knew what we needed to do every step of the way. His negotiation skills were strong and he represented us well. We will definitely use Wayne again in another real estate transaction.”Jessica A.
We are extremely grateful to have worked with Wayne Cohen on our most recent listing! Wayne has handled multiple transactions for us (representing us on both the buying and selling side). He is an outstanding realtor, who has always gone above and beyond for us. His experience, knowledge base, thoroughness, professionalism and responsiveness are absolutely incredible and extend far beyond buying and selling homes! We will always turn to Wayne for our real estate needs and HIGHLY recommend other do as well!Lynn A.
Our agent Aaron Tschoepe was amazing. We are relocating from Denver to Houston and he helped make the experience much less stressful and helped us find the perfect house to rent. We had a short time frame to house hunt and he jumped right into action to make sure we had houses lined up on our trip. He spent all day with us driving all around different areas showing us houses. We are so grateful for all his help and highly recommend him if you are looking for a great and dedicated agent.- Shannon L.
I highly recommend Bernstein Realty. Amy and her team were incredibly responsive and helpful through the entire process. Honestly, I didn’t know we needed a realtor with a new build, but I am so thankful we had Amy and her team. She helped us make great design decisions for our home, things that will help when we re-sell down the road, she helped us secure a great lot location for a good deal, she kept all the contractors on schedule, and made sure all contracts and paperwork were done accurately. I can not say enough how grateful we were to have Amy and her team through this process and we are now enjoying our beautiful new home, thanks in great part to Amy.Julie M.
My family recently moved to Houston from NY. My employer arranged to have Mr. Neil Silverman as our realtor. I have to say that we were extremely fortunate to have him as my buyer’s agent. As this was my first purchase of a house, I didn’t have much information or knowledge. At the same time, I needed to fly back and forth from Houston to Buffalo to wrap up my work, which was quite hectic. Neil worked with my wife and two young boys without any issues while I was away. We were about to close on a house, but a few days before the closing date, the house had flooding, and we needed to terminate the contract and start everything from scratch. While this was painful and costed a lot of money, Neil was professional to start over and led us to purchase another house smoothly. He is professional and knowledgeable. He responds to questions and addresses concerns very quickly. He is a good communicator and responds to emails, texts, and phone calls very well. I highly recommend Neil!!!Sunyoung L
Amy and Kenneth are total pro’s. Important characteristics in a realtor are: top notch communication skills, thorough experience, negotiation smarts, market familiarity, patience, attention to detail, and a vast network of connections. These realtors are the BEST of the BEST.F. C.
Aaron is the most helpful realtor I have had. He is available both on weekdays and weekends and helped me find an apartment in less than a week. If you are ever looking for an apartment in the Houston area, I cannot recommend Aaron and the Bernstein team enough.Carter R.
The team was professional, they listened to me as a customer, and they were responsive to the market! Very happy with our choice.Gina G. and Mario E
The best real agent agent we have ever worked with, hands-down, is Noya Zucker! We have used Noya many times, both as a home-seller and as a home-buyer and our experience with her was top notch. Noya takes the time to truly understand our needs and desires and doesn’t waste our time. She is patient and professional and made what could have been a stressful time— easy and fun! I have recommended Noya to friends, family, and co-workers and everyone agrees she is the best!Wendy G.
Amy and Wendy Bernstein made a great team in helping us sell our Tanglewood home and purchase a RO condo. Strong market knowledge and honest assessment of properties. Amazing negotiating skills particularly on the buy side and tenacious support for getting us contract features that were important to us . They went “above and beyond” working with our builder on punch list items to ensure our new home was a beautiful as we envisioned.Susan G

He is professional, experienced and responses promptly to issues or questions throughout the process. He will do his best to negotiate and also get you the best deal!Keiron D.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Amy on multiple transactions and she is simply the best. There is no one else I would rather have representing my interests on a real estate transaction. She knows the market, but more importantly, she takes the time to really understand her clients’ needs. Aside from her professional expertise, she is such a great person. We are lucky to call her our agent, but even luckier to call her a close friend. Amy’s the best!- Sachin B.

Thank you Noya and Bernstein Realty for making our transition to this wonderful city!Tracy & Norm T.
Mark McNitt is an excellent realtor and I highly recommend him! Mark has sold one house for me (one day after he listed it) and several years later was my realtor when I bought another. Mark is someone who goes the extra mile and is very detailed oriented. Mark even went the extra mile to notify me (right after the New Year) 6 months after I moved in that I needed to apply for my Homestead exemption. How many realtor would do that for you? Once again, I highly recommend Mark McNitt if you’re looking for a good realtor who will go the extra mile for you!Lynn H
Great service and hard work in finding our new home. The process was enjoyable and our realtor, Janice Ratliff, took the extra time to get to know us and what we were looking for.
