Helped me buy home
I am extremely impressed with Andy Sachs! His ability and determination to assist my husband and I in finding our dream home was absolutely outstanding!! He made us feel secure and most of all at ease when going through the purchasing steps! I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home, he's completely professional, and really shows concern for his clients! Ashley Ahearn

When we first talked to Andy Sachs, we had seen that he had a lot of listings which originally concerned us because we thought he wouldn?t have enough time. I think the reason he sold our home is because he had so many listings. A buyer had looked at a few other of Andy?s listings and didn?t find what they were looking for. The buyer talked to their agent who spoke to Andy and he got them to look at our place and then he sold it to them! Andy was the second agent to try and sell our home so we were very pleased! It was like night and day compared to the other realtor. Andy is very professional and he got the job done. Andy also has some great contacts! He had a great photographer come to take pictures of our home and when the buyer?s financing fell through, he even had a mortgage broker to make sure it went through the second time. Andy was so confident it would work that he reassured us that the financing would go and it did! He took care of us and it was just amazing. I?ve already told all of my neighbors about Andy. If you want your home sold, go with Andy Sachs! Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
While he was nice and eager to provide me with an appraisal, Andy forgot about sending me the appraisal until I had to remind him about it one month after his walk through. I do understand that the market is not moving on home values and that u do have electric wires apparent in the open town space behind the house, Andy used this as the basis of his appraisal to tell me that my home is worth $450,000. It's ironic that just 2 years ago when the real estate market was much worse than if is today and before I made substantial improvements to the house and the property, my home was appraised at $490,009. I feel that your agent wasted my time and did not do a serious due diligence on the appraisal. I'm disappointed in the run of the mill number he provided and will certainly not use him if/when I decide to sell. Less ... More
Response fromAndy Sachs
Hi Micheline, you are right. I took an uncharacteristically long time to respond to your request. for that I am sorry. I do however stick by my number. I successfully sold two other homes in that neighborhood. one sold in under 30 days. I understand your ranking of 1 star for process expertise, as I certainly failed you there. however you do not have the experience to grade my other areas as I was not contracted to represent you. My sale price ratio is much higher than average, indicating a proper pricing strategy. Clients I represent rarely reduce price. That coupled with our exclusive marketing plan sells our homes faster and for more money. As for my local knowledge, I am a proud local elected official, serve on other executive boards in town and am an avid proponent of local business. As for my negotiation skills, I am the number one producing agent in Newtown. We work hard for our clients and am sorry that we will be unable to serve your real estate needs. I wish the very best.

We couldn't be more pleased with our choice to hire Andy Sachs. From our initial meeting with him and throughout the entire sale and purchase process, he exemplified excellence in his knowledge of the local market, in his marketing strategy, and in his responsiveness and guidance throughout the process of selling a home and buying a home, both of which we did with Andy. We look forward to a wonderful life in our new home but know that, should circumstances change, we would look to Andy again for any real estate needs we may have. Less ... More

Responsiveness is probably the most important feature I look for in a real estate agent and Andy Sachs is THE most responsive agent I have ever worked with. Andy truly understands the process of buying and sellling real estate and is a specialist in the general Newtown area. Our property was a tough sell but Andy came through with flying colors.

Andy's knowledge and experience allowed us to price our house accordingly, show our home in its best light, and sell within ten days of being placed on the market. He was always available by phone and text. He resounded to all contacts and inquiries almost immediately and was available every time he was called upon. When offers were made on our home it was his negotiating skill that insured we got the price we wanted. His advice and assistance were available to us around the clock from the first moment our home was listed up until the last piece of paper was signed at our closing. Less ... More

Andy's style exudes honesty, integrity and the highest level of professionalism. We worked with Andy to fairly assess the value of our home and create an effective sales strategy. Andy arranged for a "Stager" and Professional Photographer, showing that he was willing to invest in the sale of our home right along with us. Throughout the entire process he listened and respected the fact that selling a home is both a business transaction and an emotional experience. He was understanding, yet level setting throughout the process. When an offer was brought forward he helped us to effectively negotiate and bring the offer to closure. He was always available to answer questions and guide us as we worked through a few inspection issues and a rental agreement with our buyers. His knowledge of our local market and the Real Estate Industry, as a whole, was integral in securing the right buyer at a fair price for both parties. Andy has gone above and beyond to provide guidance and advice for our sales transaction as well as answering questions that are helping us to make logical decisions as we look to purchase a home in another state. His support and follow through have made, what can be a difficult and stressful experience, comfortable and smooth. Working with Andy Sachs has been one of the best decisions we have made and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase real estate. Less ... More

Its very hard to write in detail my experience with Andy. Simply put, I can't think of a single reason to ever use another Realtor. Andy knows the market as you would expect any real estate professional to. More importantly though he knows exactly what to expect through out the mortgage, negotiation, and closing process. If it weren't for Andy I would not be living in the home of my dreams. I unconditionally trust his judgment and I am grateful for his continuous effort. Andy goes above and beyond the scope and depth of a Real Estate Agent. Less ... More

We were moving across the country and Andy went above and beyond his call of duty to give us advice. It was important to him to get the most bang for the buck and it means a lot.

Andy was an incredible help to my in-laws when looking for a house in CT. He showed them homes that were exactly what they were looking for, answered all of their questions and went out of his way to find important information pertaining to specific homes. My wife and I look forward to using Andy to help us find a home when we move to CT.

Andy actually represented us in two real estate transactions in the past year, the sale of our old home and the purchase of a new one. In short, we were thrilled with the service he provided. We first met Andy five years ago at an open house, and he impressed us with his knowledge of the market, professionalism, and honesty. So when it was time to sell our home, we gave him an opportunity to bid on our business, along with a few other local realtors. Andy's presentation was far better than his competitors, and he gave us really good insights into the local market. Based on his advice, we had an accepted offer 3 days after our home was listed! Andy did a great job of guiding us through the rest of the transaction, and his communication was a huge asset. He kept us apprised of where things were in the process, and was always available when we reached out to him. With our house sold, we focused on purchasing a new home, and Andy was again a huge help. He reviewed our requirements and budget, and did a great job of showing us homes that met our criteria, but were also within our budget. His honest appraisal of the homes we viewed was helpful, and once we found the right home, he put us in touch with some outstanding individuals to conduct the various inspections. One of Andy?s greatest strengths is his communication and his network of contacts - he surrounds himself with outstanding people. We leveraged several people that he recommended, and were thrilled with the service they provided. Andy displayed outstanding negotiating skills, both in the sale of our old home and purchase of our new one. We always felt that he took the time to understand our interests and did an excellent job of representing them. In summary, we would highly recommend Andy Sachs for your real-estate needs. He listened to us, gave us great advice, and represented us well throughout the process. Less ... More

Andy is everything you would want in a real estate agent. He is insightful about the market and trends, provides invaluable advice and on top of that is a ethical and great person. I have sold and purchased a home with Andy. I recommend him to every one I come across that is selling or buying. Buying or selling a home is a critical transaction. There is no other real estate agent I would put my trust in than Andy Sachs.
