I would like to thank Brett Furman and his team for their help and expertise during the recent sale of my mother's home. Brett and Doug met with us to discuss the details of listing the house and setting the sale price. They did their homework before our meeting and had plenty of facts and figures as well as information on comparable properties in our area on hand. After setting our price, Brett and his team went to work marketing the property with photos, a virtual tour presentation, and even an airborne drone video. They were really easy to work with during all of the appointment scheduling and efficient in getting things done. They took care of dealing with our condominium association and their requirements for the sale and many other details which really made things easier for my 88 year old mother who was relocating to Florida. The home sold in the first week of the listing at full asking price. Over the next month, Brett, Doug, and Samantha guided and assisted us through inspections, requirements, paperwork, and final negotiations. Their help was invaluable and very much appreciated. My mom was able to relocate ahead of schedule, she didn't even need to stay around for settlement, all of the arrangements were made and the documents were prepared ahead of time so that mom could sign in front of a notary a week ahead of settlement and go off to Florida, carefree. If you are selling your property, I highly recommend contacting Brett Furman and his team. Thank you, Scott Apt
Christopher and I want to thank you for all your hard work in finding us a home in Paoli. We are really beginning to settle into our new home and we love it.
We enjoyed meeting you while we were in town over the Christmas holiday. While we were back in California we appreciated you sending us email links to homes that matched our specifications. We kept an eye on those listings and it really helped us to hit the ground running when we got to Pennsylvania in July.
We love how tech savvy you are and that you were willing to do a FaceTime house tour on one listing that we found very interesting. When we got into town you were more than willing to jump right in and help us find a home. When you left for your previously scheduled summer break, the transition to working with Brett was seamless. Brett was happy to let us into our favorite listing one last time before we made an offer. We knew we were in excellent hands when he helped us to craft our offer.
When you came back from vacation the transfer was, again, seamless. You definitely advocated for our needs, especially when the deal got tense at the 11th hour.
The kids love their schools and we are very happy with the neighborhood. The home is everything we wanted.

It took me some time, to express my appreciation for Mr. Scullin’s service. And then, frankly, no one thought, that the sale of my Upper Darby would happen so quickly ( there was a positive offer in 2 days).
-Three months after settlement, I am still trying to fit a 3 bedroom house content into a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a happy and successful move, though.-
It takes a true and experienced professional to set the timing for listing a home and to prepare his presentation to the seller. Mr. Scullin came prepared with compatible listings for my particular area. He then presented my house through the media in skillful writing and beautifully taken photos. One could sense Mr. Scullin’s hard work done behind the scenes.
I was well advised about outside services and resources, as well as expenses necessary for the sale. The recommendation of utilizing a seller’s inspection was indeed valuable.
I was extremely impressed with Mr. Scullin’s patience and sensitivity to my concerns and inputs. He was always willing to also communicate with my son about the progress of the sale. It also meant a lot, to work with a realtor, who is available and dependable.
It appeared, that Mr. Scullin and his office staff related and co-ordinated well with other real estate companies, since the various showings of my house went smoothly, and I was kept informed at all times.
Overall, my experience with this Remax office and Mr.Scullin in particular have been very positive. I can highly recommend their service to anyone./
Thanks for all your good work in the successful sale of my house in Berwyn. I was very pleased with the effectiveness of your complete package - pre sale advice, targeted marketing plan, use of Internet sites, virtual tour pictures, showings follow up comments, offer negotiations and closing/settlement details. You and your staff were always professional, efficient and readily available whenever I contacted you. This current housing market is tough and you delivered a sale at an agreeable price. I will gladly recommend you to my friends. Please feel free to use me as a reference any time.

Doug, I want to thank you for all the hard work you put in for the selling of my barn and buying of my new home. My new home is absolutely perfect for me, and a lot of little things have been done to make it more comfortable for me. As to the selling of the barn, I never dreamed that it would so difficult to accomplish. You put a great deal of effort in making it be successful. You gave me useful names of people who could do the repairs both in a timely fashion and who warranted their work. Don Weiss, my lawyer, said you were the best he had ever seen in dealing with buyers. Once again thank you.

It's been a pleasure working with both of you throughout the course of this transaction to sell our home in Malvern. The service and outcome of the sale are beyond our expectation. We truly appreciate your excellent work ethic and professionalism. Both my family and I will keep you guys in mind for any future home purchases and sales; and again, we are more than happy to refer you to our friends and family.
After having our Montgomery County home on the market for over a year with no interested buyers, my husband and I took a friend’s advice and met with Doug Scullin and Brett Furman. After a very in-depth, comprehensive presentation, we decided to contract with them. Since then, our house has sold and we are currently residing in our new residence.
The areas that impressed us the most included simple staging suggestions that made rooms appear larger, the quality of photographs that appeared online and the frequent contact made by both Doug and Brett In addition, their knowledge of the real estate market helped us obtain a fair price for our home, and offer a fair price for our current residence.
We were very happy with their service and would recommend them to anyone ready to sell or purchase a home.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Doug Scullin to find a house for our cross-country relocation from California to the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. We have been through the house-buying process several times in our lives and thanks to Doug this was the most positive and easy home purchase we’ve had yet.
From our first email contact and first phone conversation, Doug proved to be a truly knowledgeable and professional real estate agent. We were working with a very short timeline for finding a house to buy and move into in less than 2 months. Initially, we worked with Doug long distance from California, which could have been so much more complicated. But, he made it so effortless!
From the start we were impressed with Doug’s communication skills and his warm, friendly manner. He listened carefully to every detail of what we were looking for in a home. His knowledge of the Main Line and surrounding areas was tremendously helpful in choosing neighborhoods and even streets to focus on that were in our price range. He immediately got us linked into MLS listings that met our criteria. Most importantly, he honored our price range and worked hard as we narrowed our search. We gave Doug our short-list of what we wanted to see and flew out to PA to meet in person and look at houses. We looked at 13 houses in two days. Ironically, it was the first house we saw in Havertown that turned out to be our new home.
What we appreciate most about Doug is his patience and understanding about what worked for us and what didn’t work for with each house. Details like how a kitchen is laid out, parking, street noise and most importantly mold issues were understood. He was in tune with us with each house we viewed.
When we’d chosen a house, Doug’s knowledge of the neighborhood served us well again. He gave us some history of the area and sound advice about recent sales, which helped us figure out what to offer. We felt supported and guided through the whole process of negotiation with the seller and the seller’s agent. His professionalism and years of experience were evident in how he dealt with everyone involved (the mortgage company, escrow company, lawyers, etc) and their regard for him.
Doug kept track of all the details and kept us informed at all times, even when we were losing track of the details in the midst of packing back in CA and driving across country. Frequent texts, emails and phone calls - Doug ensured our closing went through without a single glitch. Working with Doug made our whole experience of buying a house the most wonderful, stress-free major life event ever.
We highly and enthusiastically recommend Doug Scullin as a real estate agent.
Sheila & Jim Doerfler
We worked with Doug Scullin for over a year in our home buying process, and he was always willing to go the extra mile to show us many houses, explain any and all fine print, and be available every day of the week, at all hours. He is always both friendly and professional. Doug was never pushy and completely respected our desire to be patient until we found our dream house. Once we did, Doug continued to fully support us as we closed the deal. It's evident that Doug truly cares about his clients' happiness. We really trusted Doug and recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.
Thank you so much again for the enormous amount of help you gave us throughout the entire process. We sincerely mean everything in that statement. I've had several friends who've had less than great experiences with pushy realtors (who weren't all that knowledgeable anyway), so we were always so thankful that you made the experience so positive for us as first-time buyers.
Jillian & Steve Hardgrove
I would like to take this time to recognize Doug Scullin as our realtor. Doug has been more than helpful with the buying and selling of our recent properties. It took many weekends and many showings until we found the right place for us. Doug has been professional, personable, and more than knowledgeable to help find the perfect home. Doug has helped us purchase and sell two different properties. The first in 2013 and again this year in 2015.
Being from New York, we were unsure of the right location for us. Our son was attending college here in Pennsylvania so we needed the right area. Doug listened to our needs and wants and found a home that we were more than pleased with. Throughout this process Doug was extremely helpful, tireless, and always in communication with us.
Doug has become a friend and we would highly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Doug for all your hard work we so appreciate it and just love our new home in West Chester.

We hired the team of Brett Furman and Doug Scullin after they successfully sold another home in our Berwyn neighborhood that had previously languished on the market for a year while listed with one of the other “major” brokers in the area.
We were impressed with Brett and Doug’s professionalism, data-driven marketing analysis, attention to detail and responsiveness. They helped us a set a realistic price, created a very thorough marketing plan and ensured that we had a maximum number of showings as soon as the house hit the market. Within five days, we had a signed contract and even more importantly, they ensured that the deal went to closing.
We would highly recommend Brett and Doug for anyone who is serious about selling their home in today’s challenging market.

Doug Scullin has been my real estate rep in several transactions he has over 20 years in the business he knows the market and is willing to express his opinion on what he see as the pluses and mines in a given situation. His input is usually spot on thus making your home sale as easy as possible He is a real pro who will represent you in a fair and honest way.
I whole-heartedly would recommend Doug Scullin to anyone looking to buy a property.
Throughout the entire process, Doug was caring, creative, conscientious and motivated. He was easy to stay in contact with and would return emails, texts and phone calls promptly. Often I would send him a text or email in the late hours and receive an immediate reply. I always felt as though I was his only client even though I knew he had a very busy schedule.
Doug has continued to stay in touch after closing to make sure we are happy and offer contractor recommendations for anything I need. Very happy that we worked with Doug and will again when needed.
We have been repeat clients of Doug’s for many years (3 purchases and 2 sales). He helped us buy our first house almost 12 years ago. Back then, we could tell he was extremely knowledgeable in this field and after that first purchase went smoothly we knew we would use him again. When we were ready to move to a bigger house with kids on the way, we called Doug and he stepped us through our first sale and helped us with our purchase of new construction. We sold our house in a few weeks and got our asking price! In 2016, we needed to sell and buy again and we reached out to Doug. We sold our house and found our new home in a very small search area with a lot of competition. We needed to be ready to act fast and Doug’s responsiveness helped make this happen. We have always appreciated how Doug has been extremely honest and realistic with us as we can trust him when it is time to make the big decisions. Over multiple transactions it is nice to feel you have a realtor that you know will be tenacious on your behalf with your interests at the forefront. We have also pulled upon Doug’s network of connections in related industries with good experiences (mortgage, contractors, etc). When anyone asks us if we know a good realtor we recommend Doug with no hesitation! No doubt we will stick with Doug in the future.

What Our Clients Have To Say
I can't recommend Brett Furman enough! He sold my house but more than that, he guided me through the process, made recommendations for staging and aided me in properly pricing my house to sell. Brett's photographer took amazing pictures and terrific drone photos that made my home look incredible and having my inspection done prior to listing eliminated any surprises. Brett is tremendously knowledgeable about the market and he made a stressful time a breeze. If you want to sell your house I highly recommend Brett!
I really enjoyed working with Brett Furman at RE/MAX Classic. The results of my transaction were outstanding. He sold my Rittenhouse Square Mansion for $3,350,000 in only 48 hours for $100,000 over my asking price. What was really amazing was how he orchestrated a cash sale with no contingencies.
Brett's marketing program produced great results. He went to work months before the property hit the market creating a custom visual tour, press release in phillymag.com, social media coverage, and a digital & mobile campaign which generated multiple bids. His staff was a pleasure and Brett is a great agent. We will definitely use him again.
Lee S., Rittenhouse Square
"I used Brett as the listing agent for my home in West Chester, PA. I chose Brett because of his many years of experience and his favorable reviews in Angie’s List. He did not disappoint. My home was sold in only about 10 days. Along the way from contract to settlement, Brett handled some sensitive negotiations with my buyer where his experience and confidence were valuable. Communication was excellent. Brett returned my calls and emails very promptly. I recommend Brett with confidence."

"I called Brett to find out if he was available to sell my house as I saw he was the top rated realtor on Angie’s List. It turned out that he was located too far out; however, he took my name and number and researched available agents in our area. He then interviewed someone he thought would work well with us. He then called us back and told us about her good resume and recommendations. I thought Brett went out of his way to ensure we had a good experience through calling his company. I would recommend him based on his professionalism, thoroughness, and content of his website."
