"Like many people I was worried about the process of listing and selling my house of 25 years. I shouldn't have been! Art Scinta made it so easy and I now look back on the successful experience very happily. From the first time I contacted Art he was always immediately responsive, answered all my questions fully, and went well beyond what was expected to help me through the process. He chose a perfect listing price for our house and it sold within a week at asking price. He connected me to many excellent craftsmen and businesses for getting the house ready to list and sell, and then helped me execute a successful move across the country. I couldn't be happier that I chose Art and would recommend him without hesitation."

"Arthur represented me in the sale of my house in Pelham, NY. He was wonderful to work with. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the process. He even advised me on paint colors and the house looked fabulous when it was ready to go on the market. He told us what to expect when we listed the house and he was on target with everything. The house was priced correctly and we had three bids the first weekend. It sold for more than the asking price. He was on top of everything and the sale went very smoothly. He turned what is normally a stressful process into a great experience. I would recommend working with Arthur if you want superior representation when you’re selling your house. We could not have chosen a better broker."

"Arthur acted as our buyers agent when we bought our home in Pelham in 2017. He showed us a number of properties in Pelham and once we chose the one we wanted to purchase, he was very pro-active in making this become a reality. He is extremely professional, has excellent local knowledge and was really a great asset to us in negotiating this transaction. Would highly recommend."

"Art Scinta of Pelham NY is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with over the past 40 years. If there were other stars beyond excellent, I would also click them in all the above skill categories. He is a highly respected former Mayor of Pelham and long time Pelham resident. He knows well the whole community and the ever changing status of the housing market. Timing, presentation, and pricing are critical for sale of any house, and Art alerted us at the right moment this year and advised us expertly throughout the many stages of the house sale process from initial advertising to negotiating terms to final signing and to relocation afterwards . Selling and buying house are stressful times for both buyers and sellers as they struggle through negotiations and legal clauses. Art must also have a degree in psychology and family counseling, because when frustrations flared up, Art deftly proposed new original ideas and solutions that made it possible for us and the buyers to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles. After the sale, he then helped us find a wonderful transition rental house in the community. His very positive and caring personality, his quick mind, and professional expertise are a winning combination."

"I honestly can not imagine working with a better real estate agent. Art is very professional, smart, patient, helpful and knowledgeable about the Pelham market. He was always available to answer our innumerable questions and went above and beyond trying to help us. In fact, he suggested we go see the house we ended up buying because he thought it could be perfect for us (we would have skipped it completely based on its description). Lastly, Art is very honest and will tell you if there is an issue with a home. I really believe he does this because he enjoys his job and wants to help people find a perfect home!"

"Arthur represented our family as seller’s agent for a house in Pelham Manor that had been in our family for 50 years. His knowledge of market conditions and buyer expectations were spot-on in helping us make tough decisions on how we should prepare the house for sale. As a resident of Pelham, he is personally vested in the neighborhood. Most importantly, Arthur was always ready and available to help us through a daunting process that passed much easier with him by our side. Arthur was the consummate professional and friend to us."
