Letters of Recommendation

Jeff strives to meet all the needs of his clients and he takes all feedback very seriously. Here are some of the letters from clients who have worked with Jeff.

Barbara Newhouse - PGA National -  

Hi Jeff,

Just want to share with you the wonderful experience I had with Jamie Garber buying my townhouse in PBG!

From the start, Jamie was awesome! We communicated a lot to get my needs identified. She scheduled 8 showings for me on 11/11/17, then at the last minute she added a property that was just reduced in price located in PGA National at 351 Prestwick Circle #3.

The rest of this story is magic...I purchased 351 Prestwick Circle #3! Knew it was perfect for me once I walked in. Jamie then went to work! She arranged all the moving pieces to make this happen. Her professional recommendations were spot on for me. The process was smooth and easy and in 32 days I closed! I'm very pleased with Jamie's dedication to service!

Together, we found a home that I love more each day!

A Very Happy Client,

Barbara Newhouse"

Dear Jeff,
I would like to take the opportunity to write this letter regarding the wonderful experience my wife Sue and I enjoyed while working with Laura Beck-Levitt on the purchase of our new home in Wycliffe. Although we dealt primarily with Laura, her husband B.J.also helped us find the perfect vacation (and ultimately retirement) home and they did so in a most pleasant, patient and professional manner.
Sue and I are experienced buyers who have bought and/or sold more than 20 times over the course of our 40+-year marriage. I can't say enough about Laura's professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections in the area. I have no doubt that she brings these qualities to the table for her all clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to their new home/community. I randomly picked Laura as our realtor because she responded to an online inquiry and helped with an eventual offer I made on another property in Wycliffe. When my offer wasn't accepted, I temporarily paused my search but Laura kept in touch by sending me other listings. That was a good indication of the level of commitment she has to service. Her persistence eventually led to our finding the right home. Throughout the buying process, Laura was extremely responsive and thoughtful in her advice and recommendations. I've worked with a lot of realtors, and Laura is one of the most service-oriented I have worked with.
Laura doesn't forget you once the deal is done. Since the closing, we have kept in touch and she has even gone so far as checking and forwarding some mail that arrived at my new home before the post office began their forwarding process to my permanent home in New England. She has also come through with excellent, timely recommendations for the West Palm area. Our entire experience in this home buying effort has been positive and smooth based in no small part to Laura's help and guidance.
We are pleased to recommend Laura and B.J. to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are hands down one of the best teams in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again they will be our first choice in real estate agents. If you want to discuss our experience in more detail please feel free to contact me.

Fran Sarmousakis - PGA National -  

Hi Jeff:

I would like to say that the showing and sale of my property in Pga National was a pleasure and well coordinated. Blake mostly came to my home and gave me immediate feedback on every prospect. I tell people I don't mind paying the commission because I feel with your group, the commission was earned. We had a lot of traffic generated and good feedback.

I felt the brochures were beautiful and the pictures professionally done. Having someone at your house is the best possible scenario. In the past, the realtor would have to run down agents for feedback and most of the time it was scarce. With Blake I knew everything about the prospect and their interest level.

I was a new home sales representative for major builders and my home was handled in the same professional manner as a new home sales office. I felt that objections or questions could be handled right on the spot. It is a stressful time when you are selling or buying……Echo Fine Properties made the process better.

You have a well oiled machine and I wish you continued success. Feel free to share my comments with your future clients.

Thank you,

Fran Sarmousakis"

Charles & Susan Torsiello - Palm Beach Gardens -  

Dear Jeff,

Working with Jamie Garber to purchase our condo in Palm Beach Gardens was such a find! My husband and I were walking a neighborhood in which we were contemplating buying when we came upon a resident outside their home. We struck up a conversation and before we knew it she told us she had the greatest real-estate sales person ever, and gave us Jamie's contact information. That evening we contacted Jamie and by morning she had a variety of homes lined up for us to look at. We were only in town for one week and by the end of that week, we were in contract!
Jamie was, and is, indeed fabulous; she made herself available to us, worked tirelessly lining up homes, arranging viewing appointments, negotiating with sellers, contacting HOAs for additional information, getting documents together, arranging inspections, and getting answers to any open questions we had. Through her efforts we were able to close quickly, without any setbacks or disruptions.
Having multiple dealings with real estate professionals on a regular basis in New York, I can honestly say Jamie is among the best. The dedication and attention to detail she provided made an arduous process smooth and successful. Her amiable disposition combined with her get-it-done attitude made our experience with her delightful. We believe she is a great asset to your organization and to the industry in general.

Thank you.
Charles and Susan Torsiello"

"Ultimate Professionals...Detail oriented...the BEST of the Best...we would highly recommend Lisa and Andy""

Ralph Woythaler - Thurston Estates, PGA National -  

To Whom it May Concern,

Our home had been on the market fir 1 ½ years. We had 2 different brokers during that period. We lowered the asking piece several times to no avail. There was very little effort to help find a buyer except for a few open houses. A friend recommended we try the Echo Fine Properties group. Before signing any contract, members of the team came into our home and made many suggestions to help show our home in its best light. We made the suggested changes and signed a contract with Echo on June 1st, 2017. The communication with Echo was almost daily. We were kept in the loop on every showing and the results. A buyer was found and our closing of the sale is November 10,2017, five short months from start to finish. Jeff Lichtenstein and his team are very professional and thorough group. I would particularly like to thank Craig Heger for holding our hands throughout the process.

Thank you,


Ruth Goldsher - Eastpointe -  

Dear Jeff: I have just completed the sale of my house at Eastpointe and the purchase of my new house in Boynton Beach. I wanted to let you know how happy I was working with Victoria Lorusso. She was not only the essence of efficiency, punctuality and honesty but she was always pleasant and ready to help with whatever I needed. All my phone calls were returned promptly and her research into available properties in my new location were very helpful.

Having had the experience of working with other realtors in the past, I know very well how lucky I was to meet Victoria.

I have but one regret-----due to the fact that Victoria sold my house so quickly I never got to taste your famous cookies!!!

Best wishes for your future success (with Victoria's assistance).

The Smith Family - West Palm Beach -  

To whom it may concern:

I'm writing this letter to shear the amazing experience we had working with Laura Beck-Levitt of Echo Fine Properties.
Our son Kyle was living in Florida with a family friend who turned out to be no friend at all. This person threw our 19 year old son out on the street and made him homeless. We as his parents live in Massachusetts and could do nothing. Kyle had contacted Laura prior to being thrown out just to start looking for his own place. At that point things where fine where he had been staying.
Kyle was put out on the street with no place to go. I contacted Laura and she was so helpful and understood the urgency of the situation. She responded with listings for us to look at in his price range and close to his work.
Our son found a cottage that would be perfect for him and Laura immediately jumped into action setting up a showing for the place and it was just what he wanted. Laura then provided all the paper work for Kyle's back ground check, credit check and lease document. The entire process went very smooth and fast.
During the process of checking documents and credit checks I wanted my son off the streets until I could fly him home. I booked him a room at a local hotel so he could have a place to stay with a clean bed and hot shower. However, when Kyle went to check in they would not let him have the room because he was under the age of 21. This is where Laura really stepped up and went above and beyond to help our son. She went to the hotel put the reservation in her name paid for it with her credit card and gave the keys to Kyle. We were shocked to say the least at her act of kindness towards our son. She is truly one of a kind. Kyle was so happy that a perfect stranger would show so much compassion to a person she really did not know at all. Our son gave Laura the cash for the hotel and spent 3 nights in a nice warm safe hotel thanks to Laura. Laura is truly a Real Estate Agent with a huge heart.
The entire deal was done within a weeks' time. This was very impressive. During that week, we had Kyle fly home so he would have a nice place to stay. This is where Laura stepped up again. We had wanted to send things down to her for Kyle's new place as a surprise. Laura had us ship everything to her home and she would present Kyle with the gifs that my wife and I had sent. Laura also went to the extent of having his place cleaned from top to bottom as a house warming gift to my son at her own expense.
I have never dealt with a Real Estate Agent that has gone to the extent that Laura has for us. For that we will be forever grateful. I am happy to say Laura is more of a friend to this family then realtor now.
Your firm is lucky to have a person like Laura representing you. She is defiantly a credit to her profession and she will definitely come highly recommended by the Smith family.

Don and Lizz Kalina - Paloma -  

To whom it may concern,

This letter is in regard to a property that we are in the process of selling and also a property we are purchasing in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

The agent we are working with is Kimiko Deguchi from Echo Fine Properties. We would highly recommend Kimiko in the outstanding service she has shown us during this process.

We live out of state part time and Kimiko has gone above and beyond her duties to meet our needs. Not only is showing us many houses for us to purchase, but she is also in the process of selling our current Florida residence. She is always a phone call or text message away.

Kimiko is a very kind, courteous, professional and hard working agent in everyway

We would highly recommend her in both the purchase and sale of a home anytime in the future

Holly Schecter - BallenIsles -  

I had the pleasure of working with Penny Burke with Echo Fine Properties to sell my mother-in-law's home in the BallenIsles community of Palm Beach Gardens. I live in New York City and was unable to personally oversee the process as we prepared the house for sale. Thank goodness for Penny: hard-working, detail-oriented, and efficient, Penny went above and beyond to make every aspect of the process as smooth as possible.

The house we were selling needed work. I entered the process anxious and overwhelmed by the enormity of the project, but Penny's swift, adept understanding of our needs and her ability to satisfy them made things so much easier. Because we don't live locally, Penny shouldered the responsibility for all aspects of the sale that otherwise a seller should have handled independently. She spent many afternoons at the house with contractors, plumbers, and electricians to obtain reasonable quotes from providers we could trust. My husband and I are grateful for all the times she went beyond reasonable expectations to get the job done.

Penny always acted as though the sale of our house was her most important job. We felt prioritized and valued. I know she had other clients with simultaneous needs and demands, and I imagine they felt prioritized and valued, too.

It was a pleasure to work with Penny. She is straightforward, honest, and funny, and I miss her now that we don't speak multiple times a day.

Very truly yours,
Holly Schechter"
