Duane was excellent to work with, personable, prompt and had our best interests in mind. Duane always answered our questions and kept us up to date in a timely manor. When the buyer's agent was not prompt on certain matters; Duane kept on top of the situation by constantly following up with phone calls and emails. Duane was easy to work with and very respectful to every one involved in the process of selling our home. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

My wife and I started looking at a new home for our family and found one that was listed with Tara Partlow with Prudential Home Sales. From the first time we spoke on the phone I was VERY IMPRESSED with her attitude and attentiveness to all of our needs. This was our 3rd house and we wanted it to be our last so as you can imagine we wanted it to be perfect. There were many times I felt horrible because we ran Tara around and around and around but as a TRUE PROFESSIONAL she never hummed and hauled but always did what we asked with a smile on her face. We finally found a cute little house in the country that was built in 1936 that had been remodeled on the inside that my wife and I decided to move forward with. Our offer was accepted and this is when Tara really came to play ball. Let's just say that the contractors who did the work hid alot of things but me being in the construction field spotted them out to Tara. Tara went back and forth with the seller about things being done properly more than we goto the grocery store in a year, even up to the day of settlement. She worked so hard for us and it felt like we were her only clients even though her phone was constantly going off at times but she never answered it until she was done with our appointment showing us her full attention. 2 1/2 months later we finally settled on our home and honestly we wouldn't of gottenn this far without Tara Partlow. There were several times when we just wanted to throw in the towel but Tara with her ever postitive self would come to the rescue every single time. I could keep going on and on about things but the truth is, is that if you are not using Tara Partlow then you are using the wrong person for your realtor. Less ... More

We didn't have Russ but we did have Tara Partlow She was very helpful in doing weekly searches, being honest if she thought the houses we were looking at were to much in price or to much work needing done for us to handle. Even in bad weather she was willing to go look at places with us. She worked around our schedules. After found a place she still continues to check with us time to time to make sure we're good. I would recommend Tara to anyone looking for a home.

The Russ Malehorn Group really made our house sale easier on us... Russ met with us when we were ready to put the house on the market. He counselled us on the best time to get on the market as well as the things we needed to do in the house to maximize our chances in selling our home. His guidance on what things to neutralize in the home, what minor improvements we could make that buyers would look for, what had to be fixed/repaired vs what could be discounted for the buyer, as well as how to price our home was invaluable. Russ was there to help us throughout the process. He explained how all points of the selling processes worked and how well we were progressing through them, he passed on the results of the showings and open house and helped explain when the results didn't matter (not interested buyers or not appropriate buyers), etc. When the offer came in, Russ' feedback on whether to accept the value and whether the offer was good helped out. As the results of the inspection had a few issues, he helped us negotiate a resolution that worked for both us and the buyer. All in all we feel we made a great choice with the Russ Malehorn Group. We would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor that will work for them to sell their home. Less ... More

As soon as you meet Russ you immediately feel comfortable. He is extremely pleasant to be around and he knows his business. My husband and I had just moved to the PA area from TN and were wanting to find the perfect place to call home. When we met Russ at his office he went over some information with us to see exactly what we were looking for. Once he was made aware of our wants and needs he stepped right into action. We looked at several homes and each time he would ask us what we like about it and what we don't like about it. We eventually found the perfect home and are settling in and making memories with our family. If we know of anyone wanting to sell or purchase a home we will definitely be recommending Russ. He has a great way of making you feel like he's known you for years. Less ... More

We met Russ at an Open House he was hosting, and we ending up purchasing that house. He made the entire purchase process extremely easy for us. He also put us in touch with a local bank to help us purchase that house while we sold our current home. We had a signed offer on our 'old' house within 2 weeks of listing it, due to his and his team's advice (Tara's staging advise was awesome!). While my wife and I were away on a scheduled vacation during the inspection, Russ personally handled a few minor issues that the inspector noticed - he scheduled the service appointments and met the repairmen at the house. Russ exceeded our expectations on every aspect of both the purchase of our new home and sale of our old home and we would highly recommend him. Mike and Nicole Less ... More

My real estate search began when I returned to York County after living in other states for several years. I contacted Russ, a classmate from school and found his expertise in the local real estate market to be helpful in finding the right home for me. While working with Russ and his team, I was very comfortable with the process, the people and the results. His recommendations for services I needed to complete the purchase of my home were available in the office. Inspections and appraisals were processed by personnel associated with Prudential Home Sales. The mortgage company referred by Russ was excellent. My questions and concerns were promptly addressed with experienced and confident people that assisted with the purchase of my home. Less ... More

Russ and his team, in particularly Tara, are incredibly knowledgable and helpful when looking to buy a home. I never felt pressured or rushed into making a decision and could always count on Russ and Tara to answer my questions and make sure I understood everything we did during the home buying process. I would recommend them anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You can't go wrong with Russ and his team!

We had a great experience using Russ Malehorn as our Real Estate agent. Russ was very professional in his approach to listing our condominium His expertise in helping us establish a fair market selling price enabled us to a signed contract within 24 hours of the listing. Settlement was three months later without any issues. Thanks Russ for helping us through all the steps which would have been major hurdles without you! Roger and Bonnie

Russ helped me purchase my first home. He made the process thoroughly enjoyable and easy for myself as a first time home buyer. He understood exactly what I was looking for as we toured homes and I do not believe we looked at a single home that did not match most of my must haves. Russ possess' top level negotiation skills and we purchased my house for exactly what he expected the house to sell at, and I got a great deal because of it. Thanks Russ!

I have never worked with a realtor as friendly, helpful and honest as Duane Frey. We really enjoyed working with him. As first time homebuyers, my husband and I ran into some issues with our lender. But Duane handled that with professionalism and always kept us in the loop of everything. I will always recommend Duane to anyone wanting to move to our area or neighboring areas.

I was a first time home buyer and Russ Malehorn made the experience easy and comfortable. Russ was able to answer all my questions about the housing and finance markets, leaving me with an understanding of how everything worked. Probably the most admirable thing was that Russ was very persistent in finding me a home. Through out the process I had to change the criteria of my search several times in order to specifically find what I was looking for. Russ was always on top of that, made the appropriate changes and had a new set of listing for me to view, with in the same day. I would highly recommend him to anyone I knew who is looking to buy or sell a home Less ... More

The property that Russ sold for us was a property owned by our church. It was a difficult decision in the first place to sell the property. Russ's expertise in the process made it a very easy process for us. From the beginning of the process he was on top of it handling all the details with little or no issues left unresolved. The unit was on the market a very short time. Russ walked us through all the offers for our consideration and we were able to make our accecptance with no difficulty. Through the final steps of the process getting to settlement he handled the sale with ease. Less ... More

I found Russ from an ad on a home sale site on the internet. Within a few hours of contacting him he took us to see the home we were interested in.. When we found the right home for us, he helped us make the offer on the home after reviewing recent home sales in the area with us. He held our hand throughout the process of obtaining a swing loan and answered our every question. He also kept us up to date on how the process was moving along. Everything went amazingly smooth right up to sitting down at the settlement table, thanks to Russ's attention to detail. Then we also needed to sell our current home. Russ had suggestions on how to show our home looking it's best. He was extremely knowledgeable about current prices and market conditions He showed us com parables and discussed with us at length what price range to list our house for and why, but the final decision was left to us. In the end our home sold in 8 days after several showings. We could not have been more thrilled. Now he is keeping us up to date on this process as we are quickly approaching settlement date. In the end I must say that although I know Russ currently has a lot of other clients , he does make you feel like you are the most important client he has ever had and that really is reassuring during what is a stressful time for most home purchasers and sellers. And while making you feel important is reassuring, he backs that up with his many years of experience, knowledge and the ability to effciently keep the ball rolling to the very end. Less ... More

I found Russ to be very knowledgable in all aspects of real estate. His years of experience were a definate plus since I had a very unique property and the buyers needed extra help to make this transaction a reality. I also found Russ to be very personable and likable and he always kept me informed of developments on a timely basis. On the few occasions when Russ was unavailable I found his team to also be very knowledgable and Russ had obviously kept them well informed.

Russ was awesome! He found a house that was in our price range, first day on the market, and set up a walkthrough for the following day. We walked the house; and with Russ' advice we decided to put an offer in. The seller had 11 walkthoughs and 3 offers. She picked us because of Russ' exceptional work and diligence. I highly recommend Russ. We love our new home!

Russ is an exceptional real estate agent that we credit in helping us purchase our new home and selling our previous home (in less than 10 days). Russ was patient and supportive as our search for our "just right" property had him showing us properties for many months. His expertise and business connections enabled us to be able to locate the financing we needed to purchase our new home before we were able to sell our previous home. He withstood our series of what must have seemed like endless questions and helped us through the inevitable mini barriers we encountered along the way. Having guidance we could trust made all the difference. We highly recommend Russ as competent and resourceful agent. Less ... More

Russ has been my agent for the past 26 years. I have bought/sold many homes from Russ. He always comes prepared. Has complete knowledge of the housing market and is excellent at guiding you through the process. This particular purchase was an investment property. Ran into a number of issues. However, Russ consistently helped to rectify the problem and keep us updated along the way. We finally settled last month with every item settled to satisfaction.

We were extremely satisfied with our home selling experience with Duane. We also worked with Duane in our search for a new home. His knowledge with looking at a house structurally was extremely helpful and second to none. Because of his background he was able to identify things that could be potential problems and concerns. That kind of input and feedback with such a huge, important purchase meant a great deal to us.

Russ provided a free opinion of value prior to listing my home with no pressure to list it with him. Valuing the home was difficult in this volatile market. He negotiated the sale to a cash buyer including offering some seller extra incentives, that I could easily provide, to make the sale. This negotiation skill is very necessary in todays market. I highly recommend Russ as your seller agent.

Our experience was exceptional. Russ guided us through a very rough time with selling the house because of a divorce. His recomendations and suggestions to guide us in the right directions as to what to do and how to handle things was exceptional. He walked us through each and every step of the selling and buying process. We were 100% comfortable throught the entire process because of Russ. Very professional and honest.
