 Testimonials

I recently purchased a home in Highland Beach. Living in NYC made it difficult for me to be able to see listings as they came onto the market. I reached out to broker Greg Boan, a specialist in waterfront properties who I was referred by a number of people who had used him as a broker in the past.

After my initial conversation with Greg, he knew right away what I wanted after considering the size I needed for my family as well as my budget, location and particular taste. Greg sent me listings which were “dead on “. I knew right away that I was given not only a great agent referral but someone who actually understood what I was searching for. Since I had already been looking in the areas of Delray Beach, Boca Raton and Highland Beach, I knew where I wanted to be in; so this was very helpful to Greg in finding the perfect home for my family.

One evening as I was talking to Greg, a listing popped up on MLS and Greg instantly told me “this was it”. Sometimes in these areas of Florida, estate sales will come up as seniors pass away and members of their family are forced to sell the properties remotely.

Greg “nailed it”. It was not only what we were searching for, directly on the Intracoastal with low HOA fees, but it was also in great shape and $150k below the market value. Greg knew all of this and as we were talking he emailed the seller’s broker immediately, (it was 9:00 PM on a weeknight) and the broker responded arranging a showing for Greg the next day. Greg previewed it, Face-Timed me from the property and we made an offer instantly. Knowing the area and having a relative who confirmed it was a great investment, we were made even happier when our bid was accepted. Greg immediately set up a home inspection, was there not only for the inspection but negotiated the selling price down after we learned that the roof needed to be replaced. The seller agreed after Greg’s artful negotiation with them. He also hooked us up with specific contractors I could reach out to rehabilitate the home up to my wife and my taste.

The closing process was made so easy by Greg handling all the details from the survey, title policy, wiring instructions and what documents needed to be signed. He took care of all of my paperwork on the correct manner with the seller’s attorney, the Home Owners Association and Title Company. (Which the seller in Palm Beach County, Florida is responsible for on closing and not the buyer.) As a huge benefit, I did not even need an attorney.

At the closing less than a month later, my wife and I came down and did a final property walk through and saw the home and property were perfect just as Greg and the pictures and videos he took had taken and sent us. We met with contractors he had given me (who I picked out from his referral list and called) and we closed on the property later that day. The closing was the quickest and smoothest closing I ever had. It took a total of 15 minutes with no issues or liens which popped up as they usually do at the last second.

My wife and I are so grateful to Greg for his professional demeanor and expertise. He made this process an easy one and we will be more than happy to send all of our friends who will follow us as we all start to work less and think of the next chapters of our lives.

Thank you Greg!

Greg secured a community record price for the sale of our Boca Raton home that even exceeded the buyer’s appraisal. This was an obstacle but he discovered erroneous information in the appraisal and appealed it convincing the buyer’s bank to increase the property value and loan amount. Greg then found our dream home in Parkland that was everything we wished for and more. Greg set up and flawlessly coordinated a simultaneous dual closing with financing on both sides, two banks and two title companies. All the while navigating many logistical issues that to us seemed extremely complicated but he assured us everything would be fine. In the end he seamlessly dove- tailed everything together as promised. We are so happy! He is an experienced Broker not just a sales agent and possesses a broad knowledge of real estate law which was very helpful but more significant is his sales and business expertise resulting from decades of experience. We would strongly recommend Greg as your broker to buy or sell your property. Thank You Greg.

Dear Greg,

Where do I start? You’ve been a tremendous asset to me both financially and as an invaluable wealth of knowledge throughout my several real estate transactions since 2010 when you listed and sold my waterfront home in Tropic Isle. You then found me the perfect Highland Beach townhouse in the Enclave at Boca Cove and structured a lease purchase option that eventually enabled me to purchase that property under market value for which I am grateful. Few agents possess the technical ability to navigate such a complex transaction process as that one turned out to be. Although I enjoyed that home immensely l decided to move on to a man-gated community after several years. I was very pleased to enjoy a substantial gain when you sold that townhouse and found me my waterfront dream home in Boca Marina. Greg, there are many real estate agents that seek the low hanging fruit and then there are professional real estate brokers with a passion for the profession and extensive market knowledge that translates to profit and equity for your buyers and sellers and I have been both. I wholeheartedly endorse your services to any future clients. You’re the best of the best!

Most Sincerely,

Greg helped me find the home I was looking for and worked thru the process patiently to help negotiate a fair deal. If not for Greg I believe I would not have found my home in Highland Beach, it was the first house he showed me and I knew than that it was the one for my family and I. Thanks for all your Help Greg.

Greg;

I apologize for taking so long to write this letter, which has been on my mind for a long time. From our earlier talks when I was in Florida, you already know how impressed I have been with your kind services you provided in connection with the sale of our house in Highland Beach.

As a retired lawyer who has done a fair number of closings over the years, I have dealt with many realtors and consider myself in a better position than most to judge the performance of a particular broker in a particular sale situation. In my experience, which includes the sales of a number of my own properties, you have to be ranked in the top 1% of brokers I have dealt with, for many reasons including:

You gently guided me past the many challenges we endured in the listing and sale of our home, including letting me rant whenever I wanted, but then patiently explaining the situation to me. I tried to be dispassionate in my approach to the sale, but did not entirely succeed. You were always calm and professional in your approach to every obstacle, of which there were many, and in explaining your recommendations along the way. In our various dealings with several potential purchasers, your actions, without exception, displayed ethics and integrity of the highest order, a trait I especially value.

You went far beyond the duties you assumed in accepting our listing, including encouraging me to submit suggestions to improve the listing language and pictures; you were gracious and enthusiastic in adding or changing pictures where we agreed it might help. You also helped in keeping the property clean before and after I left town, in choosing and coordinating with several contractors needed for repairs to the property, in overseeing the transport or donation of items left in the house after I left town, in employing a yard person to bring long neglected landscaping up to par, etc., etc. One of your best suggestions was to cut some of the bushes and trees back to open up our view, a venture you took personally, doing some of the cutting and raking yourself.

There is more, but I hope this gets the point across that I was beyond pleased and impressed with your making a difficult situation much less stressful than it might have been. I would strongly recommend your services to anyone needing a mature but energetic, resourceful, and knowledgeable broker possessing all of the above described qualities.

With appreciation and respect,

Dear Greg,
Jerry and I sincerely appreciate your skillful guidance and professionalism over the course of our property search which was almost a two year endeavor. Real estate agents come in all flavors and frankly few have the business acumen and professional sales experience like yourself. I know it must have been a challenge for you since we were undecided as to what and where our preferred lifestyle might eventually be in Florida. We considered country club and waterfront communities from Boca Raton to Jupiter and with patience and your comprehensive knowledge of both venues you found us the perfect home in the Boca Marina Yacht Club. I might add it was a rather complicated transaction but you eased our concerns setting realistic expectations, resolving all issues and those usually transparent to us. You are the BEST !!!

We highly recommend Greg to any potential seller or buyer and we’d be happy to talk live with anyone considering Greg as their real estate broker.

Sincerely,

Elyse & Jerry Rosenstock

My wife and I highly recommend Greg Boan as your realtor. We were fortunate to sell our house quickly on the west coast of Florida. Expecting to have time we did not seriously look for a property on this coast. Greg provided a tremendous insight to the area and properties meeting our criteria. After viewing multiple properties and adjusting our criteria we settled on a house. Our initial offer, against Greg’s recommendation, was too low and rejected however with Greg’s perseverance we reached an agreement with the sellers. Though the story usually ends there, ours did not. Thru the remainder of the process to include two contract extensions Greg remained steadfast in the ultimate goal of completing the purchase.

Greg, you did a great job for us. Short of our experience in Boca Raton and prior to meeting you we have had outstanding realtors who like you have become our friends. You set a high bar managing our purchase process from start to finish with your expert guidance. One of our new neighbors was talking to us about relocating within the area. Their current house doesn’t provide enough privacy, face the correct way or have ability to dock a fairly large Yacht. Needless to say, Tina and I recommended they contact you. They are from France and have been in the USA for 7-8 years.
Thanks for everything.

Dear Greg:

Now that I am settled into my new home I want to take this opportunity to thank you and applaud you for getting me through the real estate selling cycle so effortlessly. From our initial meeting right through to the closing, you made it simple and seamless. I placed my trust in your knowledge of the intricacies of the real estate industry and in particular your knowledge of Highland Beach real estate. I was not disappointed. You exceeded my expectations.

Greg, you are truly a professional on all levels, and it has been my pleasure to work with you in achieving such a quick and successful outcome in selling my home.

I would highly recommend your services to anyone wishing to purchase or sell their home.

Best Regards,

Re: Sale of our Brighton Residence
2000 North Ocean Blvd, Apt 103
Boca Raton, FL 33431

Dear Greg,

We are finally settled in, and just want to thank you again for the wonderful job you did selling our home in the Brighton. We have purchased and sold a number of residential and commercial properties over the last 40 years, and you are by far the most professional, reliable realtor we have ever worked with. You followed through on every promise you made to us in terms of how you would market our home and how you would advertise it. Anybody can put a listing in the MLS, but you went way beyond that.
Your true talent, however, was negotiating and closing the sale. There were a lot of parties to deal with in our sale, the time frame from signing the contract to closing (less than 3 weeks!) was obviously incredibly short, there were some complicated financial issues, and you pulled it all together. I can't tell you how much we appreciate everything you did, and we will certainly retain you for any future real estate dealings we have in South Florida.

Thanks again for everything.
Ryna and Ken Mehr

P.S. Also thanks again for all your hard work finding us an interim rental and with the closing on my brother Lewis's house. Everything went smoothly yesterday, and the funds were transferred this morning. As usual, we tell everyone how great you are.

Wish you were working in Bend, Oregon. Ken & Ryna Mehr

Hi Greg,

After everything is said and done with our closing and I’ve had a day to relax, I really wanted to thank you personally for everything you did to sell our home. You’re very meticulous and just a great professional person to work with as knew you would be. I’ve known you for years but now I’m really glad I chose you as my agent and I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thanks also for all the extras you helped us with and understanding the pressures I’m dealing with in my demanding career. You have always been helpful in every way and please know Jill and I appreciate it.

Take care, hope to see you soon.

Greg sold my waterfront property in Highland Beach. I was very happy with Greg Boan and highly recommend him. He really knows the market and that helps when he is working with buyers for your property as well. He gave me good advice along the way from the beginning through the close. I have no regrets choosing to work with him. I had interviewed other agents, but felt my listing would get lost with their other properties. I didn't feel that way with Greg. I felt confident and trusted Greg. This was important because I was an out of town seller. He handled everything very professionally.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Hyland
