What can I say about Abe?

! This is the second house that I have been lucky to have the best realtor in all the Philadelphia area! Not only did he sell my home in Fishtown two years ago. He just sold my fiancé’s home in Royersford. Abe does his pre-work and doesn’t sugarcoat things- he is honest and helps make the tough negotiating decisions with us. 3 out of the 4 offers were from Philly or right outside the area for the amount of marketing and networking Abe does! We also got 4 offers in just 3 days (showings from Thursday thru Saturday), set a new comp in the community, beating the last sale; negotiating with buyers to pay over appraised value with inspections waived! Smooth and fruitful. Whether you’re selling or buying- Abe is the wonderful professional you need to have. Not to mention he is a nice, fun human!

Abe came highly recommended by a good friend and it's easy to see why.

I called Abe on a Friday to see if he would like to work with me and by Monday evening, I had my offer on the house accepted. I don't even know how much work Abe did for me over that weekend and all-day Monday, but what I know about was a lot. This is a great house in my dream neighborhood, and I was competing with multiple other bids. Abe knows the real estate market, he knows how to highlight the strengths of your bid, and he knows how to close the deal. He's been there for me every step of the process. Even after writing all that, I don't know if I can adequately express just how lucky I was to be able to work with Abe to purchase this house.

Abe did an outstanding job helping me with the purchase and sale of my home.

I acquired it in 2020, but due to unforeseen circumstances I moved back to my home county (Germany). When I decided to sell my home in December of 2022 I of coursed reached back out to him, as the home buying process had already been problem-free. Always a fun time to go look at properties with Abe!!! He has surrounded himself with a great team as well, that keeps track of all things needed. It was a hassle-free experience for me! When we were selling the property Abe showed his expertise and knowledge of the neighbourhood once again. I was very impressed about the marketing he did across all channels, especially social media. It drew a lot of attention to the property and brought in an incredible amount of showings. It is also very important to mention, that he coordinated all aspects of the process and oversaw everything while I was out of the country and in a different time zone! In the end, he helped me sell my home “twice”. With a second offer even higher than the first offer... $20,000 over asking!! All in all, I cannot recommend Abe and his team enough!

He’s a pro!

Knows the Fishtown market, is super responsive, proactive and gets the job done well. We got full ask in under 30 days on the market while rates were spiking. He’s fun to work with and goes above and beyond to negotiate and get the best deal. This is the third real estate agent we’ve worked with over the years, and the only one we’ll use for future moves.

When it comes to helping homeowners sell a property, Abe is the best.

This is the second time we have contracted with Abe and both times he was outstanding. This time we took a few weeks to properly stage the unit. He helped with every aspect of that process. He even picked the paint colors for each room. He previewed the unit in local and national publications and when the open house hit we had more that 60 buyers come through and ultimately we received 5 offers above asking. In fact, both times Abe helped us set new highs for units of similar size. When it came to closing, he and his assistants stayed on top of everything, making the whole process less stressful for us. I have been so impressed with Abe's professionalism, that I recommended him to another neighbor looking to sell as well as some friends moving into the area from Detroit. You can't go wrong with this guy. Thanks for everything Abe. You are a true professional.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Abe, an outstanding realtor who went above and beyond to help us purchase our dream home.

One of Abe's remarkable skills was his ability to negotiate effectively, even in a multiple offer situation with a lower bid. He skillfully navigated the negotiations and worked tirelessly to ensure our offer stood out among the competition. Thanks to Abe's expertise, we were able to secure the house despite the odds being stacked against us. During the inspection process he arranged for contractors to provide us with estimates for all issues identified. This allowed us to make informed decisions about potential repairs and their costs. Abe's responsiveness and clear communication throughout the entire buying process was exceptional. He promptly returned our calls, answered our questions, and provided regular updates, keeping us informed every step of the way. Abe's professionalism and dedication to providing excellent customer service was truly remarkable. We wholeheartedly recommend Abe to anyone in search of a top-notch realtor.

Every once in a while, you come across someone who is absolutely in a job that they were meant to do.

Abe Thomson is one of those people. Abe came highly recommended from a neighbor of ours whose home was under contract within days of it being listed. We had a similar experience. Abe is not one of those real estate agents that just takes a few photos, lists your home, and lets chance take over. He clearly had a proven strategy in place for every aspect of selling our home. From pre-marketing to showings to open houses, offers, negotiating and the closing process. Abe and his team manage the entire process, from start to finish, ensuring the smoothest sale possible, all while patiently answering our never-ending questions. The goal, of course, was to get top dollar for our home. He accomplished that through a robust marketing campaign. He hired and paid for both a professional photographer and videographer to produce photos and a top-notch video promoting the property. He’s a master of social media and sites like Zillow and Trulia. And he tirelessly worked his own network over the phone. All of this effort paid off in multiple offers… not to mention the fabulous job he did of weeding out the knucklehead stuff. In the end, he succeeded in getting our home under contract for well over asking price. A solid offer is not at all where the story ends: this is where he and his team are just warming up. They walked us through every step between contract and closing, doing most of the leg work to make sure everything progressed smoothly and on schedule for a timely and quick closure. Here, too, it was clear they know how to remove obstacles and barriers in the process and helped us manage the activities during the post-contract, pre-close period. It kind of makes my head spin to think how quickly and efficiently it all went… seriously, the time from our initial meeting to closing was just over six weeks! It was truly a pleasure working with Abe and his team. Professionalism through and through.

I worked with Abe to find a home for over a year and a half in this crazy market!

We looked at dozens of houses, and Abe helped me find ones that made sense for me. He was able to weed out a lot of places before touring so I didn’t have to waste my time. Then he helped me win a bidding war to get the perfect place! It has been great working with Abe, and I really like how easy it is to get in touch with and communicate with him. As a first time homebuyer this is a nerve wracking process, but Abe and his team made it as seamless and stress free as possible

I chose Abe Thompson to be my realtor after having my first realtor fail miserably, I felt he was someone I could trust and new the market well.

Abe has great charisma and is warm and friendly, I felt he could get the job done. Abe was always positive reassuring me that he could get the property sold. Abe was instrumental with guidance in selling in a declining market. I kept remembering the 2008 fiasco were housing values fell 50% he reassured me it wasn't going to be that bad and he could get it sold. Abe had to re-strategizing multiple times as the interest rates and the market was changing around us. Abe never gave up trying to maximize the value in my home. Abe is a tough negotiator increasing the final offer by more than $10,000.00. I was happy with the outcome and would not be afraid to recommend Abe Thompson to anyone.

"We can’t say enough about how pleasant and smooth Abe facilitated the process of purchasing our new home. He not only spent time understanding our search parameters and preferences, he took a personal approach to developing a collaborative relationship with us in a way that has resulted in a new friendship. His vast experience helped guide us throughout the bidding, financial, and closing processes without sugar-coating any potential risks. As such, we successfully negotiated acquisition of our beautiful new home at $15k less than asking along with providing an excellent reference for a contractor with whom we are collaborating for some projects after settlement. We appreciate his open, honest, and prompt communication and can’t possibly offer a strong enough recommendation of his services for anyone seeking to sell, purchase, or rent a property."

"I met Abe when he helped me buy my first home in 2021. The housing market was very tight around this time like it is now, but Abe was able to help me find a home that was off market for a great price! Since then we have become friends, so I trusted him to help me sell my current house. Abe was very thorough with the selling process and went over everything in great detail and made sure I understood everything. The process was very smooth, he outlined his entire selling process, including his marketing strategy for my house. Thanks to all of what Abe did, we had over a dozen showings lined up before the house even hit the market. We were swamped with showings over two days, but Abe worked his magic and was able to negotiate an offer to buy my house for $10k over asking! Abe handled all the negotiations with the buying agent like a pro and made sure he communicated everything as it happened. It so happened that the buyers wanted $8k worth of repairs before agreeing to a deal, but Abe negotiated and got that number down. With Abe's negotiation skills I was able to save $5k! I was ecstatic and could not ask for anything more. Abe went above and beyond for me and handled all the repairs to the house while I was out of the country on vacation. Everything was ready for settlement. I could not ask for anything more from Abe, he really went above and beyond with selling my home. He is very easy to communicate with and I would recommend Abe to anyone looking looking to buy or sell a home!"

"Abe is the best in the business. He was so patient working with us on acquiring our dream home! He didn't give up on us after 6+ months of searching. He helped us negotiate a deal to beat out 7 other offers. This is the second property that Abe has helped us purchase. He had great communication skills and was extremely reliable throughout the process. Five stars all around!"

"We found Abe via Zillow in 2020 and he stuck with us until 2023 when we found exactly what we were looking for! We were a bit picky but Abe never pressured us into compromising and instead encouraged us to keep looking. Despite the high volume of clients and listings we never felt like he didn't have time for us. He got us in every showing we wanted, always did his research on comps and the neighborhood, and seemed to have a great working relationship with every realtor we encountered. Working with him wasn't only easy but fun, the buying process can be stressful but he navigates you through it and offers tried and true connections for title, mortgage, contractors, cleaners - you name it! Our process was seamless and went off without a hitch. Thanks to his excellent relationship skills and persistence with the seller we got a fair-value, off-market deal with $17k of seller's credit, all without the headache of bidding wars or compromises that are so common these days. I truly don't believe this would have been possible with another realtor - we really lucked out! Thank you, Abe!!"
