Wendy Martin was outstanding in her service to me as a buyer. She not only patiently guided me through the process of the kind of property to buy, she also applied a great deal of knowledge and professionalism to my search. Wendy persevered through a couple of different purchasing challenges including a seller to tried to rescind an offer and a seller to cut out a water purification system before the final walk through and closing. Wendy and Dave Tumpa both guided me through these challenges in the most professional and skillful manner. I am very grateful to Wendy. Anyone looking would be lucky to have her as their agent.

Best realtor and team I have ever dealt with.

Dave and his team fully educated us on the market surrounding both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one. Every time we had a question our feedback was immediate and we got all of the answers we needed. The Tumpa team had eight prospective buyers through our home in a day and a half. With their advice, our home presented so well we had 6 offers immediately. They also found us the perfect new home we were looking for. We wouldn't recommend any other realtor. Thanks Dave!!

Staff who were always there to answer any questions you had at anytime of the day. Kristi was an awesome realitor who was honest and patient through the whole process. She explained everything to us and would make sure we understood everything we asked. As soon as we saw a house come up we were interested in she was right there ready to go in a timely manner. If she was not avaible and with another appointment another staff member would step in. I highly recommend this team to anyone. They really made our first home buying experience stress free and enjoyable."

"Dave is a very hands-on agent who always makes himself available to answer questions. More importantly, in an active market, such as Pittsburgh, Dave will ensure you are one of the first client to view a property which you are interested. His knowledge and experience assisted me in submitting an offer which was accepted right away. I couldn't have asked for a harder working agent."

"Dave went above and beyond the call of duty. He was very knowledgeable about the market we were selling in. His results speak for themselves, my house was listed and sold in 2 days. Receiving almost 10% above asking price. He was there every step of the way from start to finish. I would highly recommend Dave to provide his services to anyone out there looking to buy or sell. He also provided great services to my family last year while looking for land to build a new house. Dave is well rounded in all aspects of real estate and I consider him the best in the business."

"I emailed questions about a house recently and specifically stated 'Do not call. Please reply via email only' which was promptly ignored as I received a call at work twice from this office within 5 minutes. I restated my request to the gentleman that called (not Mr. Tumpa) and asked him to reply to me by email again. He then proceeded to tell me that's not how they do business (Really? What world do you live in?) And that they prefer to do it by phone (I don't recall asking their preferences and when did the buyer cater to the realtor?). I was really interested to know how a phone call would answer my request of a picture of the stove but was cut off as the assistant told me "well you can just give us a call back when you decide to actually be serious about buying a home". Really? That's how you treat someone? I had a legit request with a legit loan approval for $30k more than the asking price of that house. Maybe your office can just call me back when you're ready to apologize. Until then I will not consider any house attached to this realtor. He can thank his assistant."
