I was referred to Justin through a family member that had previously used him. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Our search was wide ranging, from fixer-uppers to new houses. He had intimate and first-hand knowledge on all parts of our search, ranging from costs for renovation to the feel of a given neighborhood. Real Estate agents are obviously paid based on transactions, and benefit when people buy - probably the best part about working with Justin was that he was happy to give us his honest opinion. After we closed on the house, Justin and his team walked us through the process. We visited the house countless times, brought in a range of inspectors, and had a difficult negotiation regarding the roof. Justin was always willing to work, even when our requests seemed excessive. We love our new house and are very thankful for the work Justin and his team did.

Justin was instrumental throughout this entire process. I had never bought a home before and Justin walked me step by step throughout the process. He was able to provide me with great insight into what to expect throughout the process, how to evaluate what I was really looking for in a home, and the patience needed in order to find the perfect place. The process ended up taking over 6 months, and at no time did Justin pressure me to make an offer either above my budget or for a place that I was not in love with. In the end, I found a place that I absolutely love at a price that provided great value for now and the future. I highly recommend using Justin for all of your real estate needs as I am positive that he will be able to find you your perfect home just like he helped me find mine!

From the very first day we sat down with Justin, he always had our best interests at heart. As first time home buyers, there was a lot we didn’t know. But Justin took the time to walk us through everything and make the process seem easy. He has great relationships with contractors and mortgage brokers, making him a real touchstone when trying to juggle multiple things at once. We communicated around the clock, but never did I feel like a burden. Justin is extremely patient, responsive, knowledgeable, and an absolute joy and pleasure to work with. Thanks to him, my husband and I just closed on our first dream home in a very short amount of time! I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
Working with Justin was an incredible experience. From the first meeting to closing day, Justin was responsive, thoughtful and efficient in the entire home buying process. As first time home buyers, he made sure that we were aware of the most minute details of each property we visited. Justin is well connected and in touch with the greater Philadelphia real estate market and got us in to houses right when they went on the market. I can't speak highly enough about Justin, his professionalism, knowledge and presence was incredible throughout the entire buying process. Thank you Justin Bresson!
- B. Fetterman
We had an amazing experience with Justin and his team during our home buying process. We were first time buyers which meant there were lots of questions and a lot of nerves. Justin was incredibly responsive to any and all questions and made us feel comfortable throughout the process. Once we signed our contract, his team's attention to detail and communication made getting to the settlement table a breeze. We can't thank them enough for all their hard work and we would recommend them to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home!
We were going to use Justin for selling our condo, and he and his assistant had prepped everything. At the last moment, we were able to rent it out instead. Justin and his office were incredibly helpful and walked us through the steps for this process as well. And, most importantly, they found us a perfect tenant at a great price immediately. Justin handled everything, saving us money, headaches, stress and time. A top-notch professional who you'll be happy to call a friend, also.
- Cody G.
Justin was super knowledgeable about Philly real estate and neighborhoods. He was incredibly patient with our thousands of first time homebuyer questions, was on-call and accessible whenever we needed him, and guided us through the entire process without a hitch. He's also been really helpful post-sale with recommendations for handymen and general Philly knowledge. We're absolutely thrilled with our home, and can't recommend Justin highly enough!
- Kerry R.
I would highly recommend Justin to anyone in need of buying or selling real estate in Philadelphia area. He is very knowledgeable about the region, about the up-and-coming neighborhood, and the future of real estate market. He always shares honest and accurate knowledge about the property with the client, and provides great suggestions and strategies to maximize the client's interests. He is a great guy and very easy to work with.
- Nick M.
Justin and his team are the real deal! They helped us buy a house which we then flipped. It was our first flip and I was super anxious, but Justin got it listed at the right price and helped me stay sane during the process! We sold it in two or three weeks which was what we were hoping for. He has tons of knowledge and advice. We'll definitely use him when we sell our other property in Philly. Thanks Justin!
- Gina O.
Justin is an excellent agent. He was there through every aspect of the home buying process, from initial property search through closing. He was always available, responsive, and professional, but also enjoyable to be around. He also offered very valuable insight into the market and the negotiation process. I would recommend Justin to anyone interested in renting or buying a new home.
- Mikeian S.
Justin was such a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning, he was so responsive to all of our (annoying and possibly naive) questions, even if it was an inopportune time. We felt like we were in trustworthy hands to get us the best deal that we could. He definitely made everything easier for our first home purchase. Thank you!
- Shannon B.
Justin won't let you down; he provides real information in real time and becomes your friend along the way! I started the home buying process just five weeks before I had to be out of my apartment. Justin connected me with an effective mortgage lender, title company, inspector, and all other necessary components along the way!
- Christen L.
Justin was very helpful in navigating a complicated home purchase. Despite a long closing window, some communication difficulties with the sellers, and some concerns with the final inspection, Justin helped us reach an equitable and fair resolution. Great local knowledge and response time. Thanks Justin!
A pleasure to work with, professional, attentive, and honest. Justin was quick to return calls and provided excellent advice while taking care of the sale of my house. He has strong knowledge of the area and local market trends. I look forward to working with Justin again with future real estate needs.
- Mike C.
Justin was fantastic to work with. Not only was he knowledgeable about Philadelphia neighborhoods, but he had general repair/renovation knowledge that was valuable when touring homes.The entire Fresh Places team made our buying process seamless. As first time home buyers we could not recommend them more!
- Christie Q.
Justin is an amazing realtor. So much, in fact, that he hustled to get us a full price offer on the very first showing of our Center City condo! He was always available, quick to respond and knowledgeable about the Philadelphia market. I would highly recommend working with him for your next purchase or sale.
- Lindy P.
My husband and I worked with Justin on purchasing our new home in Philadelphia. He made the entire process so easy and seamless for us. He knows his stuff and we felt confident in him and the Fresh Places team. His friendly and honest personality made working with him a joy and we highly recommend his services.
Justin Bresson is knowledgeable and professional, but it was very important to me that he was also patient and that I could trust him to look out for my best interest. He has all of those qualities and I look forward to working with him in the future.
- Natasha H.
Wonderful realtor and human! Made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process, and put up with my constant questions and anxiety. I am admittedly a needy and annoying person and he never made me feel like a burden. 100% would recommend.
- Jake R.
Justin went out of his way to ensure things were done properly and efficiently. He was very honest and was truly on your side. Also, he was very knowledgeable about the area and what was a better investment for you.
- Buyer | Seller
Justin was very knowledgeable about the area we were looking at. Was very patient and guided us thoroughly during process. Very easy to get in touch with.
- Sanaa R.
Kasandra was absolutely amazing throughout our entire home search and buying process. She is the ultimate professional, always responsive to emails and calls, and was always reassuring when the search felt overwhelming. As first time homebuyers who realized very quickly that we didn't know exactly what we wanted - and wouldn't until we saw it - it was a relief to know that Kasandra was happy to take us to see as many homes as we needed until we found the right place (and we did!). Kasandra is not only knowledgeable about the buying process; she understands the construction of homes, so much so that occasionally during a showing, she would point out electrical or construction subtleties that we hadn't noticed. We cannot sing her praises enough and will be recommending her to everyone we know.
- Jason V.
I worked with Kassy on the acquisition of an investment property. I am from out of state, so had limited availability and local knowledge. I provided Kassy with the parameters I was looking for and some target properties. She cleared her schedule to accommodate my visit for a 'blitz' weekend of property viewings. I had an aggressive timeline (close within 30 days) and she helped me meet my target by facilitating inspections, providing referrals, etc. She brought a level of professionalism I expect, but is not often provided. I highly recommend her as a buyer's agent.
- M. Lilley
I loved working with Kassy. She was very attentive and understood my goals as a buyer. I would highly recommend her to anyone. In my case, I knew I wanted my home as soon as I saw it, but a bid was put in that very night by someone else. Kassy was able to leverage my timeline along with a more competitive bid to knock out the competition and secure me the house.
- Missy R.
Kasandra is fantastic and has been so incredibly helpful during (and after) the entire process. She has been extremely patient and professional during these unordinary times. I would absolutely recommend her to my family and friends. She has gone above and beyond, and we really appreciate all the work she has done.
- Eliot H.
Brittany is FANTASTIC and was SO HELPFUL. She showed us a LOT of houses over about 9 months while we were trying to decide where we wanted to buy and what we really even wanted - she listened to our goals and hopes and was able to help us solidify what we wanted in a house and where we wanted to be. Brittany was honest and helped us make sure we got a good deal - she was up front about problems/issues with properties that we viewed and I felt that I could really trust her. She showed us homes in both Philly and surrounding suburbs - she is very knowledgeable about diverse markets and homes throughout the region. In the end, we found truly our dream home - and she made the process so smooth and low stress for us (even though our mortgage lender was difficult to work with - she handled every issue and kept me feeling confident and relaxed). I would DEFINITELY recommend Brittany to anyone looking to buy a home in the Philly area and surrounding burbs - she is fantastic.
- Daphne O.
I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Brittany! She helped me to purchase my first investment property, which was also my first real estate purchase. She was patient with me and all of my questions and very helpful walking me step by step through the process. One thing that is important to me when working with someone is responsiveness and communication, both of which Brittany was fabulous. She was on top of everything and very well organized. I look forward to giving her more business in the future!
- Katie R.
As a first time homeowner I could not have asked for a better realtor to walk me through the sale of my home. Brittany took on the administrative burden that I was dreading and clearly explained every step of the process. Her pricing proved to be dead on and she has great resources for everything from staging for photos to repairs and paint jobs. The open house had a huge showing, which I completely attribute to her marketing efforts - and it paid off with three offers and a sale above asking. Thanks Brittany!
Lucas Pfaff was hands down the best decision I made when choosing which realtor to work with when buying and selling property in Philadelphia. His knowledge of the varying neighborhoods and ability to actually listen to what I wanted in a house and neighborhood was unmatched by several other potential realtors I had met with. Furthermore, throughout the entire process, (which if you've ever bought property you know it has the potential to go on and on and on), Lucas was on top of his game. Whether he was finding properties to walk through (sometimes day of listing!), arranging inspections, reviewing past titles, or negotiating with other agents, Lucas was always sure to put MY best interests 1st. On top of that, after the closing of buying my house and the closing of selling my house, we celebrated by going to Luke's Lobster for a quick bite. There isn't another realtor I would even consider using in Philadelphia for my next property purchase.
- Colin B.
I bought a house with Lucas. Have to say, I definitely tortured the guy and he was there every step of the way. My initial plan was to build a place; we looked around for a suitable lot for a while and came up empty. Somehow he found the current house in early development phase, where I was still able to have a say on the design and modifications. I have OCD, and have probably bothered him on multiple occasions more than one should. At the end, I got the house I wanted and perhaps a new friendship. Can’t go wrong with Lucas.
- Dr. Roozbeh G.
Lucas is very knowledgeable in the Philadelphia real estate market. He responds and takes action quickly and made sure I was informed throughout the home buying process.
Fresh Places has been on point for all of our acquisitions. They know the market and trends, and are keeping us posted on the right deals for us. Definitely will continue to work with them in the future.
- Mihir K.
The entire Fresh Places team made our buying process seamless. As first time home buyers we could not recommend them more!
- Christie Q.
If you are in the market for a new home or selling your existing one, I highly recommend Alex! As a first time buyer, I was skeptical at the process and didn’t understand why they needed everything minus a blood sample. Alex exceeded all my expectations as an agent. His expertise and wealth of real estate knowledge, negotiating skills and ability to follow up were nothing short of incredible. Seriously, my fiancé would call him all day long with endless questions and Alex was more than willing to gracefully help ease our minds. He made us feel like we were his only clients and working with him was as comfortable as working with family. We couldn’t be happier in our new home and we are nothing but grateful to Alex for getting us there!
- Marissa G.
Alex is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He really cares about his clients as well as the community and neighborhood I would live in. And as a first-time home buyer I had done some research beforehand but was really grateful for Alex and his team! The process went so smoothly and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the process and was a great resource. He offered his opinion when I asked and helped me to consider things I hadn’t thought of. I’ll definitely reach out to Alex in the future and I recommend him to all my friends and family!”
I had spent about two years looking for my own home. I started talking to Alex about it a year ago. We had our plans in place for a little bit over 9 months. After I was ready to buy, we only spent one week before we started to visit really different homes. Initially, when we gave an offer, we were outbid so many times but Alex assured me that we would find a home that is perfect for me. Today, I own a beautiful two bedroom and two bathroom condo that I enjoy so much. I found Alex Penn to be very attentive to details, very organized, a great communicator and a good negotiator!
- Etienne J.
Alex is extremely professional! He has a great understanding of the market and process of buying/selling. Alex was always available no matter what time or day of the week to answer questions and travel to showings. Alex played a huge role in us getting our Dream House. I highly recommend him!!
- Jeff F.
Alex was very helpful from the beginning. He kept contact with us regularly and answered all of our questions. We wanted to sell our home by September. We spoke to Alex in July, put the house on the market in August and it was sold within the first 4 days it was listed.
I have to say Alex worked hard for me long before I even showed my true promise as a buyer. I happened to leave my info online one day beginning to explore owning a home. In return we all know you get flooded with calls soliciting, however, Alex listened and honored what I was saying from the beginning. At the time over a year ago before I was ready to even start looking or talking to banks he understood where I was in my process. He checked in with me regularly to see if I was still working towards buying a home one day and available for my questions. So when it came time that I was ready he was the only person I was wanting to work with; he already showed his dedication and built a working relationship. He always explained everything to me and was always honest with me about things along the way - even if I didn’t want to like him in the moment for doing so, I really did appreciate it. Now, I am happy in a home that was right for me. My children are happy. It’s only just a week now, so it’s still an adjustment as it would be for anyone. However, Alex has done his job well in my book, he’s young scrappy and hungry if you, like myself, are looking for someone who works hard like I was, I strongly recommend giving this guy a chance.
I can’t speak highly enough of Alex, his professionalism, and dedication during our home buying experience. As first time home buyers from out of state, we were nervous about how stressful and difficult the home purchase process would be. Alex made it easy, seamless, and frankly, rather enjoyable. Alex knew what to look out for, knew the area, and did his homework on all the properties we considered. He went above and beyond to ensure my wife and I found the ideal home for our family. Highly recommend!
Alex was a pleasure to work with. He understood my concerns with finding a great home in a neighborhood where I could be comfortable raising my children. He is a great asset to the real estate market.
