Clear and Consistent Communication

Cafe Residential was great to work with every step of the way. The home buying process can be stressful but they helped to keep it organized and stress free. -Donato Settanni

Buyers At Ease With Stress Free Experience

I can't say more about about Elisa and the Cafe Residential team. My family has used their services for years and in 2021 we both bought and sold a home with the help of Cafe Residential. The entire team, Elisa, Walter, Carol, Ron and I am sure a few more people who deserve mention helped us anytime we had a question or a need. They turned a difficult situation into an amazing experience and we will be forever grateful. Most importantly I recommend this team to all my friends, family and clients. If you need a realtor they are the best in the area and deeply connected to the communities they serve. -Matt Arruda

Turned a Difficult Situation into an Amazing Experience

As a homeowner we decided to go with Cafe Realty which is now McGrath Realty. Carol Christiansen and Walter Sadowski came to our house as real estate agents. They were so professional in how to go about with it. We had the open house the weekend we signed the contract. We hit it off with one buyer on that same weekend. The process was long with the negotiations but Walter Sadowski was just really amazing with the negotiations. Walter was always on hand to communicate with us even during off hours and even when he was on vacation. They helped us with the lawyer and we were really pleased with Atty. Michael Virga. We finally are going to close on 10/29. To the whole staff of McGrath realty our deepest gratitude and may you all be safe Cruz family Brewster NY

Best and hardest working agent. Made our home purchase possible. Was there every step of the way even when things seemed dire and unattainable. Always provided the proper answer to every question.

Made Home Purchase Possible in Montrose

Joanna was the perfect partner in looking for my first home. From the moment we met, she took everything at my pace, answered my questions, regardless of how many times I asked the same ones, and was always in an amazing mood. Her positive attitude is infectious - I can't imagine having gone through this experience with anyone but her. I highly recommend Joanna, and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Perfect Realtor for First Time Home Buyer

My husband and I needed to sell our starter home in order to purchase a bigger one for us and our three kids. We wanted a company who didn't make us feel like we were lost amongst a sea of other clients. We when bought our first home we had hired another realty company that was huge and we felt like we were forgotten at many times. So this time around, we decided to find a local business that dealt with us personally. Cafe Realty exceeded our expectations with the home selling process. Elisa is hands down one of the most experienced, knowledgeable and hard working people I've had the pleasure to know. She was ALWAYS there when we needed to reach her. We had a couple of rocky starts with various offers and bizarre potential buyers, but Elisa was there to reassure us and help us through it, giving us terrific advice and also reassuring us that things would work out! The agony of selling became FAR easier because of Elisa's knowledge and expertise. We honestly wondered if she ever took a break, because she always seemed incredibly busy - and at the same time never TOO busy to get back to us quickly if we couldn't reach her right away. I will never forget Elisa and will absolutely recommend Cafe Realty to any of my family or friends who are buying or selling a home. You cannot go wrong with this company. Elisa clearly has a lot of pride in her business, and she cares about her clients. Her knowledge and savvy were priceless. She fought for us, comforted us, and helped us at every stage. I highly, highly recommend Cafe Realty!

A Difficult Situation Made Less Strenuous!

Ms. Concepcion should be the poster woman for professionalism. She is classy, friendly and a workaholic. The type of person you want on your side. I have used her for both buying and selling and she worked just as hard for both. I HIGHLY recommend her for all your realty needs. She will be by your side every step of the way.

We can't recommend Carol and her group strongly enough. They held our hand through all steps of the process from getting the property ready to sell to listing to closing. They were knowledgeable and kind and always available -- just the kind of team you want on your side.

Satisfied Seller Is Treated Like Family

Elisa knows her stuff! Her attention to detail is impeccable and she super creative - her marketing skills helped make my home Pop on the MLS and we were pleased with her out of the box suggestions for getting our home ready for sale. Thanks Elisa for helping us make our dreams come true! -Amanda Antonellis

Attention to Detail and Excellent Marketing Skills
I can't say enough good things about Cafe Realty. From beginning to end, I was impressed with the whole team. They were genuinely concerned with doing what was in my best interests and my comfort levels, and provided excellent advice from start to finish. Walter's negotiating skill netted me extra dollars, always appreciated, and they were even able to take care of a closing day crisis when I was across the country (an unwelcome cat had taken up residence in the empty house). They went above and beyond the call of duty, both cat and closing saved! Highly recommend this team.
-Janelle Lowe
Excellent Advice from Start to Finish

Elisa and Walter were exceptional agents to work with in the purchase and sale of our homes. They were ALWAYS available for us for showings and advice. We cannot thank them enough for helping us find a dream home AND for getting us over ask in the sale of our house. They made the process seamless and made sure we were well taken care of us. They went over and above what was professionally expected of them. We HIGHLY recommend Cafe Realty!
