Hal and Jason were very responsive, kind, knowledgeable and always professional and respectful. Always, considering our thoughts and opinions. We had a great experience and highly recommend you to seek Hal and Jason's assistance when looking to buy or sell. Thank you! We are happy and enjoying the sunshine state.
I worked with Helen, an agent at Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, to find our literal dream apartment!! The process was seamless, I'm so happy and grateful and highly recommend her if you need an agent in Brooklyn.
From the first meeting I had with Hal, I was impressed! He outlined every step of the selling process and All the different ways he would market my home for sale. Not only did he do EVERYTHING he spoke about, he had my home in contract in less than 30 days! I highly recommend Hal and his team if you are buying or selling, I'm sure you will be as happy as I am with the professionalism , great service and the extremely smooth process .
Jason made the process of buying our first home painless! The location that we were focused on was exceptionally competitive and Jason ensured we were kept up to the minute with listings that would be of interest. He never wasted our time and was available 24/7. My husband and I naturally had lots of questions (and emotions!) about becoming homeowners and Jason's experience/knowledge coupled with his patients and professionalism were unsurpassed. Further, when we secured our forever home - he was with us until the bitter end of the process. He helped us to navigate the financing, set realistic expectations about the next steps that could be anticipated and at every chance he could - went above and beyond to move the process along seamlessly. I am convinced he masterfully operated behind the scenes and rose well above the job description of a realtor. Jason was by far the most helpful and informed person within our entire process. My husband and I are so thankful to have found Jason and would highly, highly recommend him to anyone seeking a realtor. THANK YOU!
I would highly recommend Hal to represent in a real estate deal. He spends the time to understand individual requirements and incorporating his local market knowledge focus on what is important for each client. He communicates well and at the right frequency to keep all parties informed each step of the way and offer guidance when needed. There are a lot of real estate agents out there that have rights skills to help with the purchase or sale, Hal, however distinguish himself by providing the white glove service to make it a pleasant experience to offer a comprehensive real estate brokerage solution.
Hal and Jason were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. What was truly remarkable was their willingness to give honest and detailed feedback throughout the entire process. I highly recommend them!
After several price reductions with my listing agent I decided to CALL HAL. I took my listing off the market for 30 days and relisted the house with HAL. He had 2 FULL ASK OFFERS for us in 24 hours. WE COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!!! It was a fair price for our home and we were SO HAPPY! HAL is the BEST in the business. If you want to SELL you home... CALL HAL!!!
Hal blake is very knowledgeable in his field. He was always very professional and friendly. I will do business with him again in the future. Mr Blake handled himself very professional, and provided a stress free environment. Mr Blake was very honest and I felt I could trust him he always showed up on time with plenty of information that helped me through the process. He had showed me of the houses in my neighborhood and what they were selling for what that made me make an easy good decision on my pricing my home of 30 years. I felt so comfortable with him I had asked him to be my agent in the purchasing of my new home that I will ask him in the future. I will recommend him to anyone asking me if I know a good agent to sell or buy the home.
Can't say enough how pleased we were to have Jason represent my uncle's estate. He was always available to address concerns and got the job done even though the toughest of times. Thanks again guys.
Hal is the most hard working and dedicated broker I ever dealt with. Hal sold my home within 30 days of listing the property. I highly recommend him to buy or sell your home.
I was a first time homebuyer, and Jason made it a simple and stress free experience. Always available, always answering my non-stop questions ... overall outstanding service and highly recommended!
Hal came to our attention when he sold our daughter's house in the Westerleigh area or Staten Island in about 10 days last October. I thought that was a remarkable feat, so when it came time to sell our 2 Family house in the Willowbrook, he was the first broker I called. He sat down with us and we came up with a realistic selling price based on comparable sales and locations that Hal thoroughly reviewed with us. When it came time to actually list the property we received an offer within 24 hours and very close to our asking price which we accepted. We managed to close in two months despite the severe winter weather and the fact that we had already moved out of the house. Hal stepped in and took care of everything and made sure that the buyers remained happy and committed throughout the process. He worked with both attorneys, an engineer we had to hire as well as our maintenance man to make sure that the house was well presented and ready for sale. I would not hesitate to recommend Hal for your real estate needs.
Hal did everything he could to streamline the process. He often handled things that he didn’t need to simply to save me a trip into SI. I have been in business for 30 years, and I can confidently say that you will not find ANY better, kinder, more knowledgeable and more professional realtors in the SI area that Hal and Jason Blake.

I just want to thank you for your help in selling my mother’s home. It wasn’t easy for me. Your carry & compassion helped me do what is best.
I could not have been happier with the his service! My house sold in 4 weeks of being on the market! Hats off to Hal Blake! Very warm and not pushy at all!!
Hal made the sale of our house a very smooth experience. He was always available to be contacted for anything at anytime and responded quickly with answers. He was able to give honest advise and constructive criticism, which was very helpful in making decisions quickly. I would recommend Hal as a realtor if you are serious about selling your home.
Recently my husband and I were interested in selling our home. We reached out to Hal Blake who was not only incredibly responsible yet two days after having our home on the market we received an offer that we accepted. During our transition, Hal always responded to our calls, texts, and emails. Hal Blake is extremely knowledgeable, professional and provided an outstanding service. Thank you Hal for being so amazing!!!
Mom was getting too elderly to handle her house in the Oakwood section of SI. Hal was professional kind and as others reviewers attest, honest. I myself am a realtor but not in NYC so we listed with Hal and never looked back. He was very helpful in all aspects of the sales and moving process. He never pressured Mom but managed to procure a fair offer which Mom thought over and accepted. If we had any further business to do in SI this broker is the one we would gladly call again.
Hal is pleasant and honest to work with...I had worked with him on a previous sale and reached out to him again for this sale. When he priced my house too high, he compensated me with a discounted fee. I have already recommended him to a friend.....
Hal Blake is an Honest and Knowledgeable Real Estate Agent. He did a thorough appraisal of property and was right on the mark for advertising and pricing for this property. He went above and beyond to make this deal happen. He did a great job negotiating a realistic sale price for the community the property is located in.Hal is very accessible and deals with the little details professionally and with ease. I would recommend Hal to anyone I know.
They are good people and Professional.
Hal has been amazing and came through big time for my family. He even helped us get a violation dismissed that would have been a problem and would have held up the sale of my family's home. He truly was invaluable during a difficult time for my family. I can't say enough good things and I can’t recommend Hal enough.
Hal and his team were amazing. They said the process would go quick and it did. From beginning to end, Hal and his team were there. You want an agent who is going to listen, be mindful of your needs and concerns, and finally deliver. That’s who Hal is.
This was my first time buying a home, and Hal couldn’t have been better. He walked me through the process with true expertise, honesty and clarity. Extremely accommodating and thorough from the first time meeting him until day of closing. Any home I wanted to see, he would have a showing booked within minutes. Every call and text was answered and responded to immediately. He was early to every meeting/showing and I could tell he had my Best interest as his priority.he made buying a home a lot less daunting. I’d highly recommend working with him, a true professional.
We hired Hal Blake as our listing agent to sell our house, the result was very speedy and satisfactory. The whole house selling transaction was smooth and painless. Our house was only on the market for a week and sold. We couldn't ask anything better that. Mr Blake delivered what he promised to get the job done in a timely fashion. He is an experienced, honest and professional realtor. We highly recommend Hal Blake to everyone as realty agent. You will be glad that you did.
Mr. Blake is a professional who is truly knowledgeable in real estate and all aspects of selling and has a lot of valuable resources; he is reliable, responsible, punctual, honest, attentive, never pushy and an absolute pleasure to work with. Honestly, he is the last realtor that I really trust and pleasure to deal with. He guided us through every single step of the way, was always available to answer any questions and give his own professional and honest opinion, and made this whole process a very pleasurable and smooth experience. He absolutely exceeded our expectations and we truly think that if it wasn't for him we never sell our house the price we want. If you want a true professional who really cares, listens, and goes above and beyond, Mr. Blake is your guy! Thank you very much Mr. Blake. Definitely I will recommend your excellent service.
Hal was a pleasure to deal with. Besides for being very knowledgeable in his field, he was extremely patient and helpful. Hal made sure to explain the process and was quick to respond to all of my questions. Hal constantly made sure that the process ran smoothly and that each party was on the same page. I wouldn't think twice before referring Hal to my friends and Family. He is an exceptional broker and a great guy.
Hal Blake was an extraordinary realtor. He gave us so much personal attention, and he was always available when we needed him. He's an avid texter, so he was always reachable. He knew how to price our home to sell (we had an offer in 12 days) and gave good advice on preparing our home to show. What I love most about Hal is his honesty and integrity. He's completely above board, and his no-pressure stance made us comfortable through the whole process, right through our smooth closing. I would recommend him to anyone!
Jason Blake was our realtor, we dealt mostly with him although Hal was there if we needed which put our mind at ease. Jason helped us from start to finish and stayed with us through the entire process: starting just to look and get an idea, scheduling visits to potential homes, second looks and during the entire closing process. He was able to provide good insights for schools, areas that have what we're interested in (ex: walking distance to parks) and pet friendly areas. Jason really helped us identify things we may not have thought about as first time home buyers such as, finding somewhere we don’t outgrow. He was able to give us the opportunity to look at 2 bedrooms and finding out quickly it just wouldn’t be enough space for us and we would outgrow in a couple of years. We finally settled on a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom town home in a quiet community and not too far from our favorite parks as well as located in between our families and didn’t drastically change our commutes. We are so thankful to have had his knowledge of things we might have overlooked. Lastly, he made it easy to contact him and he responded right away which was fantastic. We would highly recommend Jason and Hal!
Hal came highly recommended and I was very happy with the service he provided. He was extremely professional. He knew the neighborhood and market conditions. He made himself available to show the property when we were not able to.
