Lorene & Michael K. - Toscana North Seller/Unit 504
“When we were ready to sell our condo, we contacted Ben & Mayra Stern to represent us. Based on sales in our building complex we expected to sell in 7 months. Ben & Mayra found a buyer in 2 months thanks to their unbelievable marketing efforts. They walked us through every step and assisted us in getting a lawyer to handle the sale. Whenever we had a question, they were extremely quick to respond. Their knowledge and guidance in pricing our apartment correctly from day one really made a difference. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in South Florida. Thank you, Ben & Mayra!”
Eileen Swindling – 1107 Toscana North Seller

“Ben and Myra Stern have represented us on both the buy and sell side.We found them to be effective, hardworking, reliable and totally trustworthy brokers. They are very knowledgeable about the market and have extensive marketing skills using the internet. It is a pleasure to work with them.”
Eric D. - Highland Beach, FL
“Dear Ben and Mayra,
It has been a pleasure working with both of you for the sale of my Toscana unit. You have both been extremely professional, thorough, and very knowledgeable throughout the entire process. In addition, you have also been of the highest integrity, and this is a quality often lacking in realtors and brokers. As a team, you have exceeded my high expectations from listing to closing. Most sellers know that there is quite a lot of competition for listings in Toscana. And any educated seller knows that there is one realtor who has the majority of the listings. Had I not interviewed your team, I would have gone with this realtor, and based on my research, been very disappointed. He creates unrealistic expectations on pricing, and does not show the home personally most of the time. You guys did not promise me a fantasy price for my unit, but a realistic price. You also were present for all showings, and very patient with potential buyers. You were also available on very short notice to show the unit. Because of this, we were able to sell the property on a very timely basis, and for a price very close to asking. At my ripe old age of 63, I have been through many real estate transactions. I can say from the bottom of my heart that you guys represent the highest level of service I have ever experienced. You should both feel very proud of Stern Realty, and your individual efforts. Again, thanks for your attentive and caring service.”
Bill Goldberg – Toscana North Seller/Unit 505
“It is my sincere pleasure to write this letter in regards to the outstanding service provided to me by Mayra and Ben Stern in selling my condominium at 3740 South Ocean Blvd. Highland Beach, FL. The service they provided went above and beyond all my expectations and was truly out of the ordinary. Since my primary residence is out of state, it was desirable that I found a broker that had the ability to pursue and follow up on prospective buyers using pertinent data and timely execution of marketing strategies. Mayra and Ben used expert discretion when it came to communication and information gathering to pinpoint what I needed and when to involve me for necessary decisions and input. Their marketing techniques exceeded even the most seasoned brokers. They use every outlet imaginable including traditional print, lead farming, website ads, and social media. Their methods are seamless and relentless in nature, constantly moving toward that final goal of the sale. My gratitude is boundless for the work they have done for me and I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending them to anyone looking to sell their property quickly, easily and for a maximized profit.”
Gerald Musano – Toscana South Seller/Unit 1609
“Mayra and Ben were wonderful to work with when it came to selling my FL condominium in Toscana, Highland Beach, FL. At our first meeting, they suggested a very fair marketable price for the listing. They were very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I had great confidence in them. Among the many things that they did for me were:
· They personally showed the condo (and sold the Toscana Lifestyle) 13 times. They accommodated the showings, even the ones that were short notice, 7 days a week.
· They did tons of online marketing, mail outs, and a Broker’s Open.
· The property was on the market 113 days (a little over 3 months).
· They provided me information about other condos for sale, under contract, and sold, that helped with my decision making about the price.
· Compared to the commission many other real estate agents charge, they saved me about $13,000 (5% vs. 6%, on a $1,300,000 sale).
· They notified me of each showing appointment and gave me feedback each time.
· They gave me regular updates.
· They helped all parties obtain any information they needed, assisted with the appraisalRoboto; inspections, scheduling and meeting the charity organization that came to pick up the furniture, meeting with repairmen to fix the sliding glass door locks,Roboto; much more.
I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
Elena McTighe – Toscana North in Highland Beach Seller/Unit 601
“Ben & Mayra did it all while we were up North. Their service was excellent, seamless, and detail oriented. Less than two weeks and the condo was sold. Could not be happier.”
Jack Stein, Toscana North in Highland Beach, FL Seller /Unit 1210
“Almost 2 years ago, we were recommended by an employee to use an agent who was supposedly the best in Toscana. One and half years later, with our place sitting vacant, hardly any showings, and no offers, we decided to hire Ben & Mayra Stern, who live right here in Toscana. In only a few short months, they showed our place 17 times during the slow Toscana off season, brought us 4 offers in writing, and were able to get us a full price offer. They helped us with everything, including the inspection, cleaning and emptying our home, the walk through, and the closing, all without us ever needing to go back to Florida. Their service is unbelievable and they saved us over $10,000 in commissions. We could not have sold our place without them. Thank you so much, Ben & Mayra! I want to express our appreciation for everything you have done for us”.
Betty Shames – Toscana South in Highland Beach, FL Seller/Unit 809
“Dear Mayra and Ben, I wanted to thank you so very much for the professional way in which you handled my real estate. I felt very comfortable with you both . I would gladly recommend you to my friends or anyone that needs real estate assistance in the future. Thanks again for all your help and for renting out my place so quickly. Warm Regards.”
