"Highly likely to recommend 12/03/2015 - zuser20140520215203232 Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Atlantic City, NJ. I would like to recommend Bernie Cohen to everyone who is looking to sell/buy/short-sell their property. Bernie is extremely knowledgeable and is always super responsive to all inquiries/questions you may have. Bernie was referred to me by my company’s relocation department, right after I got offered a promotion in... well – Arizona (pretty far from New Jersey). Due to some real estate market state at that time, I was not able to sell my property for what I owed, therefore I had to make the decision of short-selling it. It was very scary at first, but I was soon very relieved as Bernie took care of everything regarding this property’s paperwork and negotiations with the bank. It was a true dream come true to have an agent like Bernie Cohen take care of everything. "

"Highly likely to recommend 11/17/2013 - paulviikna Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Atlantic City, NJ. Buying a property in another country, in our case being Canadians buying in Atlantic City can obviously be an arduous process if you don't have the right people in your corner looking out for your welfare. We got lucky; we had Bernie! During our initial contact over the internet we advised him that we had a very small temporal window of opportunity to come to AC, view properties and get the offer process underway if we found the right property. Bernie was so well organized he set up a multitude of viewings for us all in one day and patiently took us through each one so we could make an informed decision; which we did. Being from out of the country Bernie took the time to educate us not only in terms of the local real estate market but provided background and history on Atlantic City and the general area."

"Highly likely to recommend 02/25/2014 - user47163975 Bought a home in 2014 in Brigantine, NJ 08203. I would highly recommend Bernie Cohen as a Realtor.Bernie is very knowledgeable, patient, and has excellent communication skills. We purchased property in New Jersey and we live in New York State, which definitely complicated things. Bernie showed me some properties in the fall, but then life got busy back home and looking for a home became less of a priority. Bernie continued to send occasional e-mails and listings, keeping us informed of what was knew, but never pressuring us. My finance is a first time home-buyer. We had a lot of questions and concerns often asked the same question more than once. Bernie was always very patient and clearly explained and advised us well throughout the whole process. One of the best things about Bernie is his accessibility. Throughout the entire process he was almost always reachable,"

"Highly likely to recommend 06/09/2014 - user7721683 Bernie Cohen came to our initial 'interview' meeting prepared with examples of comparable homes for sale in our area along with materials clearly describing his service, his expertise and his business background. Because of his approach, we selected him when we were really ready to place our house on the market a few months later. Again, he provided updated comparables and talked through our concerns about pricing. His advice was to price it right - at or near market - to sell it quickly. If we were to price it higher, it would still be sold at market but would take longer. We listed house on 4/3/14 and got cash offer on 4/7/14. We believe strongly that this was due to appropriate pricing and Bernie's 'sage' advice. Bernie was responsive to any inquiry we had about the process and very patient with us throughout.
