What's News in the PALM BEACH COUNTY Townhouses/Condos Market (May 2015) 

"Palm Beach County has become a fast-paced market according to May statistics. We saw again declines in median days on market and months' supply of inventory. Potential sellers who wish to capitalize on the momentum, should contact their Realtor now. The market has accelerated, and a comparative market analysis (CMA) will be key to understanding today's home values."
Matt Halperin, 2015 President of the Realtors Association of the Palm Beach (RAPB).

Customers reviews

I listed my condo with Pierre and Marie-Louise because the team Verbeke has reputation, market knowledge, great marketing programs and oceanfront condos expertise. I was very satisfied with the services they provided: rapid sale (less than 5 weeks) and I got a sold price close to the asking price. Pierre and Marie-Louise are very professional real estate agents. I certainly would recommend them to anybody who wants to sell an oceanfront condo!

Barbara G., May 2014

 

"Marie-Louise and Pierre are extremely professional and quite knowledgeable of the current markets locally and globally.
They work diligently to market your property and Marie-Louise is very helpful in telling you what improvements need to be made, if any, to make your property more appealing even to the most discerning buyer. Together, they make a great team and were a pleasure to work with. I had no worries when it came time to handle my closing. They were there every step of the way. I would highly recommend Marie-Louise and Pierre."

Sandra F., March 2014

 

"We listed our oceanfront condo in Boca Raton with the "Team Verbeke" because of their market knowledge, reputation, marketing programs and expertise. Showings were conveniently done to our wishes and our unit sold for close to desired price in a very timely matter (6 weeks). Marie-Louise and Pierre are both professional and caring: we were satisfied with their services and would definitively recommend them to anybody who needs to sell a property!

Eileen M., May 2014

 

Dear Pierre,

Thank you so much for helping us sell our L-L condo at Whitehall for close to the desired price and in just 8 weeks.

We have appreciated your professionalism, your knowledge of the market, your permanent communication and your negotiation skills.  It was also reassuring to have you at Whitehall while we were back in Washington, D.C. to do the coordination and the follow up of the repairs jobs that needed to be done in our unit before the closing: you certainly are a very efficient Manager!  Everything took place as scheduled and the closing happened on time.

Please also convey to Marie-Louise our thanks and gratitude for the outstanding job she did for us: she found in a very short period of time, the right apartment to rent for the winter at "Lake House South" and we enjoyed it so much.

It was a real pleasure to work with you both!  We definitively will recommend the "Team Verbeke" to any of our friends and family.

Sincerely,

Ellen and Stanley A., January 2, 2014

 

Pierre Verbeke was our listing agent for our Whitehall condo in Boca Raton.
He was very professional and did an excellent job communicating with us
through the entire process from listing until closing. Pierre was there for every
showing and we had weekly updates from him with comments from every
showing. Pierre was very helpful pricing and completing the sale of our unit.
 
Jim and Pam H., February 2014
 
 "What we most enjoyed and appreciated working with Pierre, is that while every detail was taken into account and handled with utmost importance, he was also a real person that understood the emotions that come along with buying and selling a property. Pierre also DID NOT make our real estate transaction seem like "Lets Make A Deal", he reacted immediately when things needed to be handled, as well as giving each situation or question that would arise some thought- Pierre based things on FACTS!! Key item in buying and selling properties! We plan to use Pierre again when buying in So. Florida in the future!! Amazing realtor!"
