" As our Buyers Representative, John Herman did a great job in assisting us in buying our first house in the Greenwich area.  John helped us find an ideal property for our family because he understood our requirements and he had good knowledge of Riverside ."

Before meeting John Herman, my wife and I would hate and try to avoid talking to real estate agents. We could just not stand how disinterested in our priorities and how pushy for closing they were. Also, being first time buyers coming from another country and not understanding the process of finding homes, making an offer and closing a real estate transactions in the U.S. was something that left us very concerned. Given the large amounts involved, John was great from day one. He left us completely comfortable to ask questions. He was always very responsive to our requests for additional information on specific properties. We would definitely work with John again, and we recommend his firm for anyone looking for a smart, reliable and very nice agent to work with.

"We had a very short time to find a house.  John was able to completely canvas the area of interest to us.  We felt that we were fully aware of the housing market in our town after working with him.  In the end, John sat down with us and went over the positive and negative aspects of about four homes of interest to us.  We moved quickly on the house of our choice and have no regrets with our decision.  John offered advice when called on but was very conscious of letting the decision be ours.  I can heartily recommend John and the exclusive buyer's agent system to any other buyers out there.

"The Buyer's Representative LLC represented us in the purchase of our home.   The are excellent and very reliable.   Being first time buyers we were completely clueless about the whole process.   But with excellent an appropriate guidance from The Buyer's Representative, we found the perfect home for us.   They took extra effort to take all our needs into consideration and helped us buy our prefect home.   They are excellent and we highly recommend them."

As a former award-winning investigative reporter I'm a stickler for up-to-the-minute research and believe that "he who has the most information wins." Our Agent was always on top of the latest information. Moreover, she coached us through a mind-numbing negotiation that allowed us to win a property in a bidding war. I've purchased several properties in my lifetime, but this particular negotiation was nerve-wracking due to the unusual demands being made by the seller. She soothed our frazzled nerves, was always available to us 24/7 and helped us buy what I would describe as the home I would like to live in the rest of my life. Since moving,  we have found a level of happiness (with the beaches, tennis, sailing, kayaking, fishing, sunning, biking) that we hadn't been able to experience in NYC.

Do NOT trust realtors who call themselves "buyer's agents" when they're not EXCLUSIVE buyer's agents. There are built in conflicts of interest with the average realtor that will prevent them from putting your interests first. TBR is exclusively in your corner, with NO hidden agenda. For me, as a long-time consumer advocate, Suzzete (and company founder John Herman) are the ONLY realtors I'd recommend to friends and loved ones. If you've had any doubts, doubt no longer.

"John Herman is a first class individual who runs a first class operation - The Buyer's Representative.  As an attorney, I am keenly aware of the potential pitfalls that can surround a seemingly simple transaction such as buying a home; I also understand the value of expert, professional and (most importantly) impartial advice.  Mr. Herman and his colleagues, as exclusive buyer's agents, provided this assistance to me at every step of the home buying process.  I know that it is because of their help that I found the best home available.  Mr. Herman's honest and up-front business model allows him to focus on the buyer's needs without distraction.  I hope I never have to purchase another home in Connecticut without the assistance of the Buyer's Representative."

I have dealt with many realtors over the years and had never worked with an Exclusive Buyer's Agent before John Herman. His commitment, ingenuity and friendly manner all helped to bring a very difficult transaction to closing when it could just as easily have fallen apart. I cannot image having purchased my home without him.

"John, I have been meaning to write to you for some time.   A few years ago we had our first, but not only experience with a "Buyer's Broker".   We were looking for lakefront property...and were not in a hurry to buy, unless the right deal came along.   We responded to a local newspaper ad for your company.    We just couldn't believe there could be such a thing as a broker who would represent our interests.   I know that over the next few months from the date of contract, you worked tirelessly to find a property that we would enjoy.   As I recall, you sent letters to all the property owners on the various lakes to see if they would be interesting selling.   You found one and we eventually bought a nice property....where lakefront is quickly disappearing.    Kathy and I live in Wilmington Delaware now, but are still dreaming of the house we will build on the lake over the next few years.   In fact we love the area so much our youngest son, Brian, is going to private school, just up the road from the Lake Property.   Thanks for bringing this lovely piece of property to our lives"

"Buying a new home is not easy but that doesn't mean it can't be an enjoyable experience. Add the complexity of a 2500-mile commute, limited time and a hyperactive market and it can be quite a problem.  For these and other reasons we chose to use a buyer's only representative, and John Herman filled this role with wisdom, utility, honesty and charm.  I cannot image ever not using a "buyer only" agency should we ever need to relocate again. I knew that may best interests were his only concern and they were most satisfactorily fulfilled.

Alan and Dr. Linda Reinberg


"They buyer's representative LLC represented us in the purchase of our home.   They were definitely on our side when we were looking for our home, seeing the market can be tough for a buyer.   Grace personally got to know what were looking for and worked diligently to keep us updated daily.   She traveled quite a bit to show us homes immediately.  Even when I went into labor and we thought our search would be on hold, she continue to search for us.  The day our daughter was born, she found our new home and knew it was for us.   Grace and John were there for each step forward, from negotiating prices, inspections and the closing.  They followed through from the beginning to the end.   We were so pleased with their work ethic and true representation of us, the buyers.   Most of all, The Buyer's Representative made us feel very comfortable during the whole buying process.   Hats off to The Buyer's Representative LLC !

Sandy and Bill Nardi, WVIT TV


"We are living in our sixth home.   NO real estate company represented us as well as "The Buyer's Representative."  We have purchased 3 homes now through exclusive buyer's agents firms (relocated again).  There is no comparison!   We received totally dedicated services and advocacy  Our agent was tireless in assisting our search for the perfect home."

Gerry and Dr. Steven Kuhlman, DDS


"They made the purchase of our new home a pleasant, rewarding experience.   At each and every step of the way, we felt that our best interests were the utmost concern of the agents representing us.   They were knowledgeable, supportive, accommodating, professional, and pleasant to work with.   We would recommend the Buyer's Representative LLC to everyone because we were 100% satisfied."

New construction buyers Mark and Josephine Domizio


"They not only knew, but discussed in great detail, this real estate market in a variety of towns....In addition, their knowledge of each town, its schools, quality of life, activities and general "feel" proved invaluable coming to Connecticut from out of state.   The time they gave us in pursuit of our home was notably generous and graciously given.   Our exhaustive search and our due diligence process would not have been possible or nearly as successful without the efforts of The Buyer's Representative and Sheree."

Relocating Buyer client, Mark Marino


"The Buyer's Representative and Sheree exceeded all of our expectations.  Sheree made purchasing our home a rewarding, pleasant experience.  Her references for home inspectors, mortgage brokers, appliance retailers, etc., were invaluable. We felt having and Exclusive Buyer's agent really protected our interests...!"

Chris and Maryann Dupuis


"When we decided to take the plunge and buy our first home, it only seemed prudent to use an agent not beholden to the seller.   That exclusive representation was on the beginning of the benefit to us.   Sheree was a delight to work with and was very skilled at gently coaching us through details completely new to us.   She took the time to learn our personal and cultural requirements and offered much-needed suggestions and advice.   She is a true professional..."

First-time home buyers Jennifer, and Michael Volpe


"With buyer's representation from John Herman, we got the house we wanted at the price we wanted.   John's negotiation skills gave us a definite advantage over seller's representation alone, at no additional cost to us.   We would most definitely recommend the services of The Buyer's Representative LLC.    Before Buying any house, give John a call.

First home buyers Dana and Krista Rossetti


"I think the Buyer's Representatives are experienced professional real estate agents.   I noticed  a significant difference between a seller agent and a buyer agent.  The Buyer's Representatives....One thing I like was that they told me what to offer for the property and also helped me choose my home over the others and provided me a list of current prices.   Another thing they pointed out were the defects of the house, and they were the best to negotiate the price."   

Multi-family home buyer, Teresa Kaminski 


"From the minute I first spoke with John Herman I felt he was totally dedicated to working for our family...We never had to worry that John had the sellers interests involved.   He was totally dedicated to getting us he best deal for our money and time.   John is very personable and we continued a family friendship for several years because of his likeable and honest qualities."

Linda, and Dr. Charles Kime 


"They were extremely helpful in finding the right home and arranging all the tasks that must be done to prepare for closing.   They also helped me with finding a reputable mortgage broker and home inspector."

Susan Murray


"I found the Buyer's Representative to be knowledgeable and experienced.  Their insight helped us make a good choice financially/investment wise, and helped us find a home to meet our family's needs."

 Relocating Buyer David Roemer, Aramark Corporation


 "Sheree did and excellent job of finding my new home.  She did a lot of research and showed me a variety of condominiums and helped me to select the right home for me.  I am very pleased and happy with my new home and I thank Sheree for all her help."

Condominium Buyer Mildred Sweeney


"We are very satisfied with the personal attention and quality service we received from the Buyer's Representative.   It was great having your team on our side.  When the going got tough you guys kicked... (were there for us in a big way) !"

Renate, and James O'Hair, Radisson Hotels


"John Herman acted as our buyer's broker when we purchase our first home.    He was thorough and highly professional at all times.  He was extremely responsive to our wishes and highly skilled at interpreting those wishes.  John showed us only homes that were practical, viable choices for our desires and price range.   As an advocate for our interests alone, he was an invaluable element in the final transaction.   Though our house is perfect and we don't envision every moving, John Herman would be our first call if that situation did arise.  We recommend John Herman without reservation."

 Antique home buyers, Karen and Jack Suslzinsky


"John Herman and team helped us find or second home that we love.  The process was amazingly fast and efficient.  John was friendly, accessible and helpful.    We recommend EBAs (Exclusive Buyer Agents) highly!"
