We have just recently purchased a home in Jerusalem assisted by your brokerage firm in Rehavia.
The agent who assisted us from the very beginning of the purchasing process till the very end is Michael Steinmetz. We would like to express our profound appreciation of Michael’s dedication and professionalism, his courteous and humane approach and the fact that he made himself available to us for any request or question we might have, always pleasant and with a smile.
Dear Mr. Cohen,
We wish to inform you that the agent Yardena Shenk from your office has succeeded in closing the sale of our apartment in Ramat Beit Hakerem. We want to take this opportunity to thank her and show our gratitude for her efforts, the creativity and wisdom displayed by her during the process, all of which enabled the closing of the sale.
The sale was difficult due in part to the “uniqueness” of the property. Another problem arose with the buyer who lacked a certain sum in order to close the deal. Yardena came up with a solution involving renting out the sold property for a certain time period. All this made sure the deal was in fact sealed.
Again, at this point we wish to thank Yardena for all she has done for us. We admire her wisdom, patience and creativity – all of which guided her actions and made for a successful ending.
Thank you for helping us find our new home in Arnona.
You accompanied us throughout the whole process without fail and took the time to keep us in the loop and update us without any pressure on your part. You made sure the whole negotiation stage went smoothly in a very efficient manner.
Lots of luck to you in the future,
Dear Prospective Homeowners:
I recently purchased an apartment in Talbiyeh, Yerushalayim on behalf of my parents who made Aliyah to Eretz Yisrael in 2017.
It is with enthusiasm that I reccomend Dan Cohen with Century 21 Jerusalem for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation.
My parents had very specific requests and Dan was able to locate them a unit that fit all their needs. Dan had an initial meeting with us and took control of the negotiations once we has located an apartment that suited us. Dan did not relent until he was able to meet all our requests and make sure we were satisfied.
Dan came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. Throughout this apartment buying process, we found Dan to be a highly attentive agent. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. Wenever felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. He is honest and never tried to mislead us.
I am please to reccomend Dan Cohen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Dear Oren – CEO of Century 21 Jerusalem,
We wish to express our gratitude for the professionalism displayed by the real estate broker Yardena Shenk who assisted us with the purchase of our apartment on Beit Hakerem Street.
Thanks to Yardena’s service-oriented and empathatic approach during the period she accompanied us, we felt like we were in excellent professional hands and our interests as buyers were respresented in an optimal way as if she was purchasing the property for herself or for a loved one.
Yardena did not give up hope even during crisis situatons that developed while dealing with the sellers while constantly displaying creativity. Using her smile and calming manner, she always managed to make us feel reassured that everything would turn out okay in the end…which is exactly what happened.
In our opinion, your agency has been blessed with a professional worker, capable and hard-working, one which any organization should be lucky to employ.
Dear Mr. Oren Cohen,
Mrs. Yardena Shenk acted as a broker in two real estate transactions during the past few months – the sale of our apartment on Shimoni Street in Jerusalem as well as the purchase of a new apartment on Gelber Street in Jerusalem.
Throughout the process, Yardena displayed a high level of professionalism, decisiveness and ambition alongside her plesantness and agreeablilty. Yardena was available at all hours to answer questions (sometimes at unconventional hours of the day) and always gave a timely and business-like resposnse. We were under the impression that Yardena is very knowledgeable in the local real estate market and her advice helped us a great deal.
We hold the opinion that the broker sometimes acts as the representative of the owners/buyers and we feel as though Yardena does in fact represent her clients with loyalty and devotion.
We wanted to thank you for introducing us to Yardena Shenk. She is an amazing, professional and kind woman that knows how to read the situation well. We knew what we were looking for, but didn’t really know… Yardena made a tremendous effort to show us a vast amount of locations that might interest us according to the budget.
We wish you, Yardena and the rest of the team great success in matching people with their new homes, as Yardena’s sense of mission was well demonstrated.
Both Shoshi and I would like to thank you for the professional and pleasant atmosphere that you and the Firm conducted the negotiations for the house on Tura Street in Yamine Moshe.
Although during the period between seeing the house for the first time and final closure we experience ups and downs, you always displayed a positive approach, answered our questions and supplied the relevant materials to enable us to proceed, Baruch Hashem, to a successful closure.
Bazlacha in future.
We spent years working with brokers trying to find the right apartment in Jerusalem. We finally reached out to Oren Cohen and Michael Steinmetz of Century 21 Jerusalem. Unlike the other brokers, they listened carefully for what we were looking for and only showed us apartments that met our criteria, so we ended up finding what we wanted almost immediately. It helped that they covered a large range of apartment types. They were also very helpful during the course of the negotiations, ensuring that everything was handled in a positive, non-adversarial spirit. We heartily endorse them; you won’t go wrong!
We recently purchased a beautiful apartment in Jerusalem. Michael Steinmetz was our agent. He was accommodating, prompt, efficient and cheerful.
His professionalism ensured that the negotiations were conducted amicably and with excellent results.
I just wanted to reach out to you to thank you for accepting the Rejina R. referral and your diligence with the customer – hopefully, something will come of it! Additionally, we hope to be able to continue to work with you in the future, here’s to many, many referrals in our future!
All the very best,
To: Michael Steinmetz and Century 21 Real Estate Office,
I am writing this letter in order to thank Michael Steinmetz for the the excellent professional service he gave me.
After giving him exclusivity, he was successful in selling a property which was on the market for 3 years previous to the sale.
Within a short time, in less than 3 months, he brought several prospective clients to the property. Despite the challenges, he enabled the closing of the deal at a pair price while maintaining a good and positive atmosphere.
Dear Michael and Oren,
We want to thank you for helping us find a new home in Yerushalaim. You helped us find the perfect fit for our needs and budget. Your diligence and creativity are what made this deal happen. We couldn’t have done it without your expert guidance!
We are looking forward to enjoying our new home!
We truly feel as though we made the right deal for us and for our children. The process was quick and pleasant with some help from above as well as your patience and assistance.
Thank you to you and the team!
We shall think of you fondly always.
Following the sale of our apartment in Arnona neighborhood, I wish to express my apreciation for the way you handled the transaction.
You accompanied us step by step, from bringing the clients to the property till the signing of the contract, while displaying your expertise, professionalism and courtesy.
We are glad to have met you and receive excellent service from you.
Good luck in your future endeavours.
To: Dan Cohen from Century 21 Jerusalem Real Estate Office,
We wish to convey our heartfelt gratitude for all your help in securing a successful and swift deal. The service we received from you was excellent. We were especially impressed with your high level of professionalism and reliability. Above all, an understanding and an ability to make the right moves at the right time. Your dedication. wisdom and know-how enabled a terrific deal.
It is no small feat to be able to match the right property to the right person followed by the correct and precise moves in order to enable a fair and satisfactory negotiation process for all parties involved. All this lead to the best possible outcome on our part.
We wish you, the buyers and the sellers many more successful deals in the future.
With much appreciation,
Months have passed from our apartment search, and I have finally dound the time to express my gratitude for your help in finding what (will be!) the perfect apartment.
As an ola hadasha, I heard several horror stories about realtors in Israel, and felt vulnerable abou the process of purchasing my first home. I was very pleasantly surprised by hoe seamless it was to work with you. You were a perfect balance of friendly and professional, and I trusted your opinion greatly as I finalized my options.
Additionally, as a disabled woman, I needed your accomodations for my long-term comfort. Even though Jerusalem is built out of stairs, you managed to find several interesting properties that met my needs and didn’t show me properties that wouldn’t work. Your understanding nature and patience were especially meaningful regarding this issue.
Your calm nature and friendliness paired with your knowledge of Jerusalem and its real estate market ultimately made for the most pleasant experience of an exciting and stressful event in a person’s life. I am very grateful, and wish you the best!
If I have other real estate needs, I will be sure to give you a call!!!
Dear potential buyer or seller,
“About Yardena Shenk – a gifted professional broker”
Six months ago I was searching for an apartment for my son. During a period of many months I experienced fruitless meetings with different real estate agents.
Until I met Yardena.
Displaying the skill set of a seasoned psychologist, she figured out the “type” of the apartment which would be suitable to our son and only showed us those that suited his taste as well as his pocket. The third apartment we saw was the charm and thanks to Yardena, a friendly relationship soon developed with the owner. In the stage where the lawyers got involved, the deal was headed for failure due to several issues. Yardena showed initiative, stepped in and came up with a solution to the problem which arose.
To make a long story short, my son and his girlfriend currently reside in the apartment and are very content.
We met a person who displays emotional intelligence, professionalism and lots of credibility and care.
I am convinced that her skills will continue to assist other clients who wish to sell or buy a home.
With much appreciation,
Michael Steinmetz is a phenomenal broker who really fights for his clients and offers some of the best client/customer service I have seen in Israel.
“A grateful Australian”
My gratitude to Yardena Shenk – Century 21, HaKeren HaKaymemet, Jerusalem – is beyond words.
Highly professional – an agent who is honest, reliable and diligent. Most importantly she listens to her clients.
Yardena found me an apartment in central Jerusalem, a difficult task as I had a limited budget. It meets all my requirements: light, bright, in a great location, including nearby public transport, shops, restaurants and Synagogues.
Post purchase, some 12 months later, she gave me all her help and time in organising reliable workmen to carry out renovations and ran around with me to help find items needed, acting as my driver/translator and interior decorator.
I have no reservations in reccomending her to anyone contemplating property purchase or rentals in Jerusalem.
