We highly recommend Phil Puma and his team if you are looking to purchase a home in the Charlotte area. We were searching for our forever home and Phil and Wendy were extremely patient and responsive to our needs. Their negotiation skills were excellent. Phil convinced the sellers who were unwilling accept a contract with a contingency, to accept our offer with a contingency to sell our home. We are currently living in our dream home as a result of the excellent service provided by Phil Puma and his associates. Less ... More

We used Phil Puma to buy a new home as well as sell our old home. We were very pleased with the process on both homes. The team of colleagues which Phil has developed was excellent. You were always aware of what needed to be done and when it had to be completed. We have already recommended Phil to friends in need of a real estate professional.

Over the last 20 years I have dealt with many real estate professionals but none have provided the level of service and dedication to the customer like Phil Puma. Should I ever have the need of a real estate professional in the Cornelius, NC area again, Phil would be my first choice. He and his staff provided significant support and help to sell our property successfully. Thank you for your service to us. Brenda and David Dobbins

Phil and his team were very responsive and supportive throughout the entire process of marketing, showing, negotiating, and closing our home. We were able to get questions answered anytime day or night, throughout the week and weekends. Our townhouse in Noda had multiple offers and was under contract in eight days. The entire process was smooth and we were very satisfied.

Just closed w/ Phil at Puma and Associates....It was awesome & I'd highly recommend using his team...Sold my home in 1 day!! His expertise on pricing, staging & marketing are top notch. I was informed & completely kept up top date all the way thru the process. To have this many reviews in a tough industry(due to mortgage complexity) is incredible. Phil & his team are simply the best!! John P.

We were very impressed with Puma Realty. I am the head of real estate for a large bank, so I work with real estate brokers on a day-to-day basis. I know good brokers from not so good brokers, and Phil Puma is a great broker. My wife is very particular and has fired many brokers in the past, but she said Phil and Puma Associates was the best she has ever encountered. What we really liked, was his focus on client communication, the attention to quality photographs, knowledge of the markets, and their marketing plan. Phil and his company went out of their way to ensure we were satisfied every step of the way, and that our demanding needs were met. Less ... More

Working with Phil to purchase our home was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. To start, he was responsive and easily available to schedule showings. During home tours, he was honest and provided valuable feedback on each house while allowing us the time and space to form our own opinions before weighing in. We never once felt pressured, rushed or stressed during our home purchase. We would gladly work with him in the future if the need arises and we are happy to recommend his services to our friends and family. Less ... More

After having a negative experience with another agent we switched to Phil because of a friends great results (sold that house in 1 week for more than it was listed for). He was very clear and upfront of what it would take to get the sale to happen rapidly. After a month and many showings we considered the possibility of renting as we had to move out of state and still had no offer. He was very understanding of the situation and even allowed a potential property manager to use his photos. Happily we got an offer a few days before we rented and were able to negotiate the terms to a quick close. Less ... More

Phil and his staff are simply wonderful. We sold and bought locally and felt well taken care of throughout both transactions. Phil's knowledge of the area is unsurpassed as his knowledge of the process. He provided fantastic guidance throughout and handled the few sticky issues that arose with grace and professionalism while always looking out for our best interests. His office staff are equally wonderful and incredibly responsive. When we were considering listing our home for sale, more people than I could count recommended Phil.

I contacted Phil to discuss selling my house in September of 2012. He provided a very nice and detailed overview of the process of selling my home, provided excellent tips on preparing the house for selling, and was well prepared with local comparables. Phil suggestions for preparing the home for sale were useful, however our house was in great shape, so there was no staging necessary and only minimal de-personalizing was needed. An identical comparable sale had recently closed for the exact target price that I wanted. After only 2 short months we had an offer and 2 months later I was moved out and closed on the house. Phil and his team did an excellent job and I agreed to use him for the purchase of my next home. We closed on the home and the process was pretty straight forward. The reason I can fully recommend Phil as a Realtor would be because of the level of concern and customer care provided for the entire process. He helped us with the new home construction purchase and used his negotiation skills to help with the pricing of the home. Now the new home was a new home construction that wasn't going to be started until May so I understand that there was some downtime between in terms of communication. When construction began, we spoke a few times and Phil was there to answer my questions. To me more communication is better as there are various questions that pop up during this phase. We plan to close this month and so far we are in a good position because Phil helped us and gave us the information and guidance necessary for the entire process. In short, Phil is a professional and gave me an excellent selling/buying experience. It would be very easy for me to recommend him to any of my family or friends. Less ... More

Phil is a real pro with tremendous insight into the local market. His analysis of home values was spot on and he made the whole process of buying in the Charlotte market enjoyable. The fact that he dedicated multiple days to personally drive us around to experience all the area had to offer spoke volumes about his professionalism. My family has moved numerous times over the past 15 years, and this was, without a doubt, the most seamless real estate transaction we've ever had thanks to Phil and his team. Less ... More

It was a very stressful situation, but his calming presence and willingness to work with the buyer got us through it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Phil.

We can not say enough great things about Phil! He everything you can want and more in a Real Estate Professional. I loved that he is not pushy and does not make you feel pressured. I also appriciated the fact that he kept in touch with us in ways that did not make us feel bad for not being ready to purchase a house yet. I felt like he cared about our needs and when we were ready he was there for us. I felt more like he was a family friend than someone trying to make me buy a house. We were lucky to have met him and he is most defiantely invited to our house warming party with his family. I highly recommend Phil to everyone! Thank you Phil so much! Less ... More

Phil was a joy to work with. This was our very first house we've purchased, so we asked a ton of dumb questions, but he never once made us feel inadequate or dumb. He answered all our questions and went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly from our first meeting to negotiation to closing and even afterwards. When we purchase our next house or sell the one we're in the only person we will call will be Phil.

Phil helped my wife and I to buy our first house in southeast Charlotte. We had no idea what we were doing, and Phil helped us every step of the way. He was incredibly patient and explained everything to us. Even though we told him that our budget was somewhat modest and that we were not in a rush to buy a house right away, Phil was always very responsive to our needs. He never made us feel like we weren't a top priority. Phil worked around my and my wife's work schedules, often showing us houses in the evening or on the weekends. Once we finally found a house that we liked, Phil helped us to negotiate a really great deal on the house. He knew every step to take, and helped us with everything we needed, from a lawyer for our closing to someone to conduct the inspection to finding the best lender. He spent lots of time going over paperwork with us and explaining all the details to us due to our inexperience. At the end of the day whether you want to spend $100,000 or $1,000,000 on a house, Phil is a realtor that you can trust, that has your best interests at heart, and that will make you a top priority. He will be there every step of the way. He is professional, responsive, honest, and a great person to work with. We recommend him highly. Less ... More

In Dec 2011, Phil Puma helped us purchase our second home in Huntersville. Phil is an experienced and very professional realtor. He is very patient, possesses excellent negotiating skills, and is very knowledgeable of the Charlotte area home market. Our particular negotiation was quite unique, however Phil's experience allowed us to be successful in purchasing the home for the price that we wanted to pay. Phil was always available when we needed to speak with him and he was able to guide us effortlessly through the purchasing process. I would not hesitate to use Phil again to either sell our current homes or to purchase a new one.

At the beginning of the 5th month we had an offer which Phil artfully negotiated to an acceptable amount (95% of asking price) allowing us the closure we required.

Phil Puma listed and sold my home for me in the fall of 2009. Phil was able to do this within the first 30 days of having the listing. This is after the home was on the market for over a year. Not only did he represent me but he represented the buyer. I had heard that it was not the best idea to have a realtor represent both sides as the thought would be who do they really represent. This could not be further from the truth, or at least with Phil involved. I never once felt that he was not representing me 100%. He made what was a difficult situation very easy as we were selling the house while living out of state. Phil knows the ins and out of how to close a real estate transaction and will work until its done. Having worked in the real estate industry for over 1o years and being involved with hundreds of transactions I can honestly say that Phil is the most thorough, honest, and hard working realtor I have ever worked with. My only regret is that Phil is not licensed to sell real estate in NJ where I now live. I would highly recommend Phil Puma to anyone. Less ... More
