Testimonials

“After working with Aaron years ago on a rental property, I knew he was the agent I wanted to help me purchase my first home. Not only is Aaron a knowledgeable, professional, and respectful realtor, he's an exceptionally good person. This means a lot, especially considering I probably spent more time with Aaron during those months than with any of my friends or family! Oh, and did I mention he's patient? He enthusiastically showed me just one more property...and another... and another. When my first offer fell through over a bad inspection, Aaron was the one who suggested I walk away from the deal and keep looking. He always gave me sound advice, even if it wasn't in his best financial interest. Aaron was punctual, returned texts and emails around the clock, and went out of his way to help me get the best deal possible on the house of my dreams. He jumped through hoops for a difficult appraiser and kept me informed, but I never needed to worry because I knew Aaron had things under control. The only downside of settling into my beautiful new home is that I no longer see as much of Aaron. I couldn't have purchased my first home without his help and expertise and I highly recommend him if you're buying, selling, or renting a home in Westchester." - Lia

“Aaron helped us with every step of our home buying experience. We had a few agents before, some just made my wife and I feel like we were wasting our time. With others it felt like we knew more about the house we were looking at, or the town it was in. With Aaron, he were always patient with us. Multiple times there were houses we liked, but there were things that held us back from offering, and never did we feel pressured to make a decision. By the time we found the house that we knew would be ours, Aaron was on top of everything, whether it was looking up the flood history of the area, or small details like what is the maximum height of a fence that White Plains allows.  An experience that many see as nerve wracking, my wife and I found to be very smooth and easy going thanks to Aaron.” – Victor & Lauren

We didn't really know what to expect, but Aaron made the whole process easy and straight forward. We wouldn't have used anyone else. Aaron made sure to listen to everything we wanted and helped us find our first home. He kept in touch at every step in the process, but wasn't pushy. We are very happy with everything Aaron did for us.

Aaron is a great realtor. He listens to what you are looking for and finds the perfect home. I could not have gone through this process without Aaron Velez. He's the best!

“It was very nice to have Aaron as our Realtor. Very professional and walked through the process at every step since this was our first home purchase. Will gladly have Aaron as our Realtor again if we have to buy another house.” – Srikanth & Pranitha

“He knows what he is doing and he gets the job done.  I had started with another broker which led me nowhere.  As soon as I switched to Aaron, my place was sold in a few months. He is very personable and easy to work with.  He makes you feel comfortable, but also knows how to get things done.” - Matthew

“Aaron is a very easy going, professional and polite person. He is responsive in an extremely reasonable time frame. He helped us with finding a rental a few years ago and this Fall we bought a house with his guidance. High fives for Aaron!” – Alex & Galina

“Aaron got a buyer for me almost immediately after putting the house on the market. I was working with a different agent and spent a year with no offers. Once I changed over to Aaron, I had a lot of viewings and the house sold right away. I got a very good price and he handled all of the detail work so I didn't have to worry about anything. He also helped me find a rental while I was looking for a new home. Highly recommended.” – Richard

I had the pleasure of working with Aaron Velez as our Realtor while selling my mother's home. Aaron was always available to answer our questions and he went above and beyond to help us through the whole process. He worked very hard to find a buyer quickly at a price we were happy with. I always felt he had our best interest at heart. I would absolutely highly recommend Aaron to anyone buying or selling a home.

I enjoyed working with Aaron throughout my apartment search. He was always available during weekends for viewings and was always available via phone. He was the first realtor I found and also the last. I found Aaron to be a dedicated and passionate realtor and I would highly recommend him. I would also use his services again when I decide to sell my home.

Aaron did a great job for us all around. He was even eager to help with anything we needed after our purchase was complete.
