Testimonials

We highly recommend Anthony Aliotta

After relocating our father to be closer to us and his grandchildren, my sister and I began the task of selling our family home. We were somewhat reluctant to get started as this was the house we grew up in and have had so many wonderful memories. 

After researching several real estate agencies, we contacted Weichert Realtors – The Franzese Group, who paired us with Anthony Aliotta Jr., whom we found to be very prepared, knowledgeable, and reassuring. We liked him immediately! As first time sellers, he explained the process clearly, showed us his research on other properties in the area, offered us sound advice, and he really listened to us and what our needs were. Anthony got started right away listing our home and showing it.  He was always available for questions, and we never felt that our questions were unimportant to him. Anthony helped us through every step of the process from start to finish. He kept us updated, and when the time finally arrived, his immediate responsiveness and expertise allowed us to make the right decision.

We highly recommend Anthony Aliotta to anyone looking for a professional and reliable realtor.  He had a genuine concern for me and my sister, our needs, and whether we were satisfied.  If the opportunity ever arises, we would love to work with Anthony again!

Sincerely, Frankie Howard

I was very fortunate to work with the Weichert Realtors The Franzese Group

I was very fortunate to work with the Weichert Realtors The Franzese Group (specifically Anthony Aliotta, Jr. and Helen Lyons) that were engaged very quickly, had the Brooklyn house in contract within two (2) weeks of meeting and signing them to represent the house.  In addition, the house sale closed within 8 weeks of going into contract.  That was not luck; it was experienced Real Estate leadership.  They were extremely professional and bend over backwards to engage contractors to address insurance and other requirements to complete the transaction.  The firm’s knowledge of the market and buyers allowed that to maximize the asking price and obtain five (5) offers with three of those offers above the asking price.  In addition, the reason we closed quickly was that Anthony and Helen personally vetted the buyers and ensured that the cash down percentage was well above the minimum 20% so that there would be no chance of Bank financing issues.  The selected buyers offered 50% cash and there was another buyer offering 55% cash but based on Broker/Salesperson vetting we decided to go with the 50% cash offer.  I highly recommend the firm, Anthony and Helen to anyone looking for seasoned professionals that can get the house sold quickly.

Very helpful and caring throughout the process

Helen Lyons and Anthony Aliotta were great to work with! The process went by smoothly and they even checked up to make sure I was comfortable as a new homeowner. I enjoyed working with them and I can imagine the seller did as well. Helen worked hard to settle compromises between the seller and buyer when we couldn’t decide upon a closing date and it all worked out well in the end. I appreciated their efforts in getting me the house of my dreams for my kids, my husband and I to be comfortable in. Anthony and Helen were very helpful and caring throughout the process. They gave up their time to serve us well and it showed through, which we are forever grateful for. We are glad to have worked with Helen and Anthony from Weichert, Realtors – The Franzese Group!

Your team was very accessible and responsive.

Anthony J. Aliotta and Helen Lyons did an amazing job showing the house to every prospective buyer who was interested and an equally amazing job negotiating with buyers on our behalf. It was not the easiest house to sell and you helped us price it well. Anthony’s positive attitude was definitely helpful! You kept me in the loop, which I appreciate. It was a great experience and I felt your team was very accessible and responsive.
Thank you for all your hard work!

Anthony & Helen made it happen….THEY MADE IT HAPPEN.

As a former lifelong resident of Brooklyn, you know how devastated we were when our house was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. We managed to get the house rebuilt in spite of unending fighting with FEMA and the insurance companies. Our mistake was choosing another real estate when construction was completed in November of 2013. For six months that house sat on the market with no buyers. One of our sons, who works for the fire department met with Mr. Anthony Aliotta, Jr. and his associate Helen Lyons and we signed the agreement. Mr. Aliotta and Ms. Lyons were our agents. That was August, 2014
Mr. Aliotta and Helen worked tirelessly to find a buyer. It was a difficult task, all new construction in the area. It was a buyer’s market. Through the winter months, holidays and snow storms, Anthony & Helen had open houses and showings. It was discouraging but I kept thinking of what Mr. Aliotta said to me on day one, “I’m going to get this house sold for you.” His determination was encouraging. Even if we had a prospective buyer and were going to contract, he had open houses and kept showing it to others. I was amazed and grateful. On April 27, 2015, the house was sold. Anthony & Helen made it happen….THEY MADE IT HAPPEN.
I would recommend Anthony & his associate, Helen to anyone. I have many friends and family in Brooklyn. Anthony and Helen are honest, bold and very frank. He truly earns his money.
Sincerely,
Mary Brandstetter

I was very pleased with how they positioned the sale and hosted numerous open house events to get a competitive bidding process moving.

I recently sold my house at 1871 Madison Place, Brooklyn. I was represented by Anthony Aliotta and Helen Lyons. It was very clear to me that Anthony and Helen knew the market and priced the house to sell. They were very candid in their assessment of what we needed to upgrade so we could maximize the value of the home. I was very pleased with how they positioned the sale and hosted numerous open house events to get a competitive bidding process moving. I would highly recommend both agents to family and friends due to Anthony and Helen’s diligence and professionalism. Please send my thanks and gratitude to Anthony & Helen.

In all honesty, I don’t know what I would have done without him

Mr. Anthony Aliotta was the agent in charge of selling apartment 9C located at 414 East 52nd Street, NY. NY. In all honesty, I don’t know what I would have done without him. This was a very difficult sale as it was part of an estate and I am the executrix. Anthony and his colleague, Helen Lyons not only made sure the apartment was ready for showing but arranged for anything else that had to be done to get this apartment sold. Anthony and Helen not only acted as my agent but as someone willing to help with any questions or concerns I had with the estate, lawyers, and problems. Helen was most co-operative and did everything to assist me. Should I ever need an agent to handle such matters, I guarantee it will be Anthony and Helen!
Sincerely,
Gail Farrell, executrix
