Helped me buy home
My husband and I greatly appreciate Allen Caruso for helping us purchased our home in April while out of state. He is a wealth of knowledge about the area and the entire house buying process. We thought we knew the VA process from purchasing our first home, but were unaware of the maximum VA loan amount available to us. We hadn't used all of our VA loan and the remaining balance could be used to purchase a new home as long as we had our orders for our new duty station. He was amazingly prompt in getting back to use with answers to our questions at each step as we closed and he followed up with how things were after moving in. I couldn't have imagined a smoother buying process. Thank you kindly!! Less ... More

Mary was fantastic and very helpful in our house hunting process. We were very new to this and she walked us through it step-by-step and was very informative. We will certainly use Mary again and would recommend her to any friends.

Mary is remarkably professional. She guided me though each step of the process. Mary went out of her way to make the transaction as easy as possible for me. I had complete faith in her ability as a professional and she proved herself well. I am very happy to refer Mary to anyone for future sales and purchases.

My husband and I have been very lucky to meet Mary. She was very nice and professional and helped us in finding a new home. Soon after we got into contract on the new place we had serious troubles with the sellers, and we really considered terminating our purchase contract. This has been successful thanks to Mary. Even when the people on the other side of the table may not be as pleasant as you would like, we?re happy to have Mary by our side! Great person and great professional, 100% satisfied!

I don?t know where Mary got her superpowers, but she?s fantastic. She has made what could be one of the most difficult things our family has had to do, actually enjoyable! You have to have someone in your corner when you are dealing with buying and selling homes. Mary truly does that... She looks out for you. It's not just a transaction.

Mary Diehl did an amazing job helping me to find my home. I was a first time home buyer with very little knowledge about the ins and outs of the home buying process and their expertise was invaluable. She was available at any time of the day, always responded quickly and was invaluable at guiding me through this complex process. I cannot recommend her enough, she is an amazing real estate agent and great to work with.

I went in knowing nothing about the process of buying a home. It turns out I had nothing to worry about. No question of mine, apparently, was too dumb, and he took the time to explain things to me clearly and with great patience. We were looking for a modest home at a modest price, but he treated us as well as if we were looking for a mansion. This is someone I would send my parents or child to if they needed to find a home, because I know they will be treated well and fairly.

Mary was really great during our process of trying to find a home. She was persistent, consistent and helped in our success in buying a house. She matched us with the right people to get financed, she met with us to establish search criteria and was always available for questions- which was especially important for us since we are first time home buyers. Her advice was impeccable and guided us through getting the best house for us!

We were very fortunate that we found Mary to help us find a home in Saratoga Springs. She?s very professional and knowledgeable not only about real estate but also about the area. We also didn?t have Mary also can recommended lenders, attorneys, and home inspectors! That share the same knowledge and expertise as she does. We?ve never worked with a Realtor before that was as dedicated, passionate and helpful as Mary and will recommend her to our friends and family for their real estate needs!! Less ... More

Mary goes above and beyond exceeding expectations for her clients. She?s dependable, honest, extremely responsive, patient, considerate, and has a positive attitude! It has been a pleasure to have Mary as our real estate agent especially after the horrible experience we had with our last! Her professionalism far outweighs those we?ve worked with in the past. She returns calls in a timely manner, answers emails right away, is very knowledgeable about home buying process, is on time, and has excellent follow through. If you?re buying a home and looking for a competent real estate agent who puts her clients first, does what she says, and gets the job done, then Mary is the right real estate agent for you! Less ...

Our experience with Allen was fantastic. Being first-time home buyers, my husband and I had many, many questions throughout the various stages of the home-buying process, and Allen answered all of them in detail and in a way we could understand. He is passionate about his work, responsive, patient, knowledgeable about the market and the neighborhoods in which we were interested, and went to bat for us on many occasions. He showed us countless houses in many different areas and during times that worked with our schedules. He provided us with a great deal of personal attention during the many months we worked with him, and he continues to check in with us on a frequent basis to make sure we're happy with our new home and to see if we have any questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. Less ... More

Due to a job change we had to move as quickly as possible. The commute to and from my husbands new job was very long and I was only available to house hunt one day a week. Allen was able to understand what we wanted and needed and adjusted his schedule to meet our needs. He responded to all our concerns and questions very quickly. From the first day my husband met with Allen to the day we moved into our new home was only eight weeks. Allen really picked up on what we were looking for and did all the work for us. He is very trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend him. Less ... More

Allen helped with our long distance transaction beginning in August this year. He immediately responded with a phone call when I first made an attempt at finding a realtor in the area. From there, I felt I was his only client. He was motivated to locate a home for my military son quickly before he shipped out. Once a selection was made, we moved forward with non-stop action for a quick closing. Allen was a huge factor in the success of this whole undertaking. We highly recommend him.

I had a great day with Allen. I thought i found an amazing realtor that was going to work with me. We had scheduled a meeting the following day. Then he dissappeared. He never returned any of my calls or emails. With a name like "INTEGRITY" I am very disappointed in the way he handled a business relationship. I still, a week later, have not heard from him.

We met Allen through Trulia's site on a whim, after being disappointed by several real estate agents. Allen exceeded our expectation on his customer service, responsiveness, and ability to move fast and work with our difficult situation of trying to look for a home while 300 miles away. He was super fun to work with, making a stressful process much easier. He then connected us to the right people for our mortgage, contract work and other items that come with new home ownership. This was the third home we've purchased, I won't use anyone else again. Less ... More

In my opinion, Allen is among the top real estate agents in Upstate New York! He is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. I recently bought a house through him and he helped negotiate terms that were fair for both parties and addressed my specific concerns while at the same time overcame obstacles. The whole process was smooth. I am happy with his service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my friends with real estate needs.

Allen Caruso is a knowledgeable, charismatic, and hard working individual who enjoys helping people find their perfect home. He is thorough from start to finish and is there for you every step in between. He helped our family find the perfect home for us with every detail in mind. With 3 young boys we needed space, land, and an open floor plan. Along with a long list of musts and a vast area to search it seemed daunting but Allen made it happen. Our family highly recommends Allen Caruso and his expertise...he's the BEST. Less ... More

Allen is a fantastic real estate agent! From day one he made us feel like we were his first priority. As we saw more homes, and zeroed in on what we really wanted, Allen was able to put it all together. Purchasing a house is very intimidating and Allen made us feel comfortable with his knowledge and his attention. We feel so confident in Allen that we didn't hesitate to have him find a renter for our condo.

I can?t say enough about the work Allen did for me, in helping me to find the perfect property. His extensive knowledge of the local area meant that he could give me insight into what areas of town best fit my needs. Saratoga changes so much from season to season, so it was important for me to know how those changes might affect my lifestyle, my neighborhood and my commute.

Working with Allen is great! His attention to detail is amazing, and he?s more than accommodating when scheduling a showing. I didn?t know what kind of house I wanted, or what part of town to look in, and was searching based on my budget. He took me to see dozens of houses in all corners of the Saratoga area. He helped educate me about the different types of houses in my price range. It was a real eye opener to see what I could get for the same price in various areas!

Allen is definitely the Realtor to go to when seeking a very qualified and informed agent. I have used many agents over the years and without a doubt Allen exceeds all my expectations. He always answers his phone or at the least immediately returns missed calls. The number one thing that separates Allen from all the other agents is the individual attention you get.
