Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Erie, PA.

Steve and Margel are fabulous real estate agents. They helped me find the house of my dreams as a first time buyer. They are knowledgeable, professional, and made me feel comfortable. They emailed me up to date homes on the market and showed me the houses when I wanted to see them. They work around your schedule. I would highly recommend them to be your real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Erie, PA.

Steve Szumigale is a top rated agent. He took the time 2 years ago to show us over 60+ houses til we found the right one and he stayed very professional throughout answering all our questions. So it was a no brainer to use Steve as our listing agent to sell our home, he had it sold within 60 days at a full price offer. My wife and I couldn't be more happy with Steve Szumigale and his kindness and professionalism I highly recommend Steve or Margel Szumigale if you are looking to buy or sell a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Erie, PA.

Steve went out of his to show homes and took at an interest in helping me find the right home. My home was not a top dollar place, but Steve still showed me many units in the price range requested. Steve also showed up for the closing and provided moral support throughout the financing process. He is a good agent and even a better person.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $150K in Erie, PA.

    I've purchased sold a home, purchased two homes, and am now in a current search for a rental property. I am always surprised at how quickly they get on top of things when I request information on a property. I always get same day feedback on anything I request, deep insight into the surrounding houses and neighborhoods, quick comp references, and honest opinions on the integrity of any property I look at.

    I couldn't be happier, and plan to be a client for many years to come!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Erie, PA.

    We worked closely with Margel and loved her! As first time home buyers, we weren't sure what to expect, and she ushered us through the process flawlessly not only with her knowledge but her connectedness to the community and strong, established personal relationships - from banks to contractors to other realtors. We'd recommend her to anyone shopping for a house. Thank you Margel!



    01/11/2015 - druler56
    Sold a home in 2013 in Brookside, Greene Township, PA 16510.

    I've employed Margel for both selling and buying homes over the last 10 years. 

    Margel will give you accurate, timely, honest information regarding house valuations, home staging, next actions in negotiation, among others. She's not afraid to leverage her network to help get you desired results.

    When I was investigating purchasing property she was quick to act when new properties became available, managed communication effortlessly with listing agents, scheduled visits on my time line, wrote clear and concise contracts protecting my interest

    When selling property she outlined pricing strategy against market conditions, performed above average appropriate marketing that met expectations, provided expert and proven advice when countering offers, and followed through with all paperwork.

    She is a meticulous record keeper of all your activity. There is never a doubt of what happened and with whom.

    If you want a true advocate for your property or for when acquiring property there are few people of her caliber. If you're unrealistic with your price or expectations you'll hear it. 

    Because of her honesty and respect for your business she does what many realtors fail to do - tell you the truth about your market position and what options there are to get the result you want. Those who are prepared to listen and weigh options get results with Margel.

    She is always reachable by e-mail or phone/txt and returns information promptly in less than 24 hours. As a late night person don't be surprised to get responses at 2AM waiting for you when you awake.

    Recently her son has joined the business and is learning the best things to do for his clients.

    This is a realtor for life and one you can trust your first born to. Use her!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Erie, PA.

    My husband and I were looking to sell our home to move from city of Erie to another township. Steve had only 1 open house and the house was sold in less than 3 days with above asking price. We were kind of suprised how quickly Steve had sold our home.

    Also with Steve's help we found our new home in the school district that has been very beneficial to our children.

    Thank you Steve for all you have done for us...
