Jolen is honestly one of the best realtors in our area.

He was able to walk us thru buying a house even with the changing covid guidelines. He listened and answered all of our questions about buying our first home.

We used Steve Rignanesi to sell our home in Throop last year and he was outstanding.

He answered all our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, and providing tons of info on comps in the area. We were concerned that our house, which was smaller would be tough to sell. Steve made the process incredibly easy. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off. Our listing looked amazing our house sold extremely quick. I've recommended the Steve Rignanesi to everyone I know. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.

As being first time buyers, we were unaware of all the dealings and the paperwork in the back and forth that you would have to go through the purchase of house, we thought the hard part was just finding a house.

But we realized it's more way more, and Mark navigated us through it all. From beginning to end, he was on the phone with us, he was texting us, he was emailing us, he stayed in constant contact with us. We wanted to give up and decided we'll just wait a couple years to buy a house, but Mark was an angel literally and got us to closing. If it wasn't for him, we would be renting right now. Mortgage companies are not easy to deal with and buying a house is very stressful, but mark kept our stress level down. Whatever came up from the mortgage company, he had the sugar for the tea. 🤗. I really would like to rate him 5 stars, but 5 stars does not do Mark justice he needs 20 stars at least. No exaggeration. If you know what this man had to deal with, he would answer my phone calls when I was frustrated after 10'clock at night, just to put my mind at ease and to explain things to me that we just were not understanding from my mortgage company. And it was so much more that he did. I wish I could give him 20 stars, because that's what he deserves. If you're moving to the PA area, you definitely need to get Mark as your Realtor.

The home buying process can be very stressful, especially for first time buyers.

Mark was very helpful and guided us every step of the way. He was always in contact with us, letting us know what to expect and responded immediately when we needed him. He worked closely with our lender and kept us in the loop the whole time. Today is our closing day and we couldn't recommend Iron Valley and Mark Scrimalli enough!

My Husband & I helped our daughter to locate a house in PA because we live in PA and are closer to the Realtor than she was.

The realtor that helped us in this endeavor is Jasmine Ahuja. I can't say enough about how pleasant an experience it was. Jasmine emailed both our daughter and us some houses to look over and then those that our daughter was interested in we would go see in person with Jasmine and then if we felt she would like it would make an arrangement for all of us to go see it again since our daughter lived out of state. Jasmine was so patient with us all. I am happy to say that she found the house our daughter decided on and we would definitely recommend Jasmine to family and friends.

Steve was my agent for selling a multi family property in Scranton.

He found a buyer almost immediately, and had the property sold just as it hit the MLS. The sale itself went through without a hitch. Steve managed all parties involved like a consummate professional.

Jolene is by far the best and most helpful realtor we have ever worked with.

You will never regret using him for any kind of a realty transaction. We moved from Florida to PA and he handled all the paperwork in PA and he was the realtor for the sellers.

John Donnini

Jolen was very thorough and really determined to help find me my forever home.

He worked with me on my availability and offered suggestions. After 3 short months I have finally found my dream home.

Kevin Mee

Jolen was extremely helpful and knowledgable.

He helped us through every roadblock and detour to buying our first home. He responded right away and troubleshot everything that came up. I highly recommend him.

zuser20170627085056234

Selling a house in the Hill Section of Scranton is almost impossible.

Over 100 families came through the house over a 10 month period without a single offer. Lesser agents would have thrown in the towel or just told me to 'stay patient' while continuing to lower the price. Not Jolen, he stayed positive and continually marketed the house tirelessly until he found a buyer. I couldn't be more satisfied with Jolen throughout the entire process. He kept me abreast of all feedback from showings, activity of other houses listed in the area and generally did his best to keep me calm throughout the process. His communication was absolute top notch. If you want someone to lie to you and expect your house to sell itself, call someone else. If you want an agent who will work as hard as you would to sell your own house, call Jolen. I promise you won't be disappointed!

ryan d tierney

Jolen was excellent to work with.

He was there for every question I had. He made the whole process of buying a house very stress free. The thing that impressed me the most about jolen was he wasn't pushy at all. When we looked at homes that we didn't like he never tried to have me take another look at the house. He was very fast with any questiosuggestions I had.

edecker26

Being new to the homebuying process, my wife and I had a TON of questions.

Not only did Jolen have the answers, he got back to us quickly with them. Not once did he ever sound inconvenienced or put out, no matter how inane or ridiculous the question. He showed us loads of places and never pressured us. He helped us find the perfect home. From going under contract to home inspection, Jolen was in constant contact with us, letting us know what was going on. He then coordinated with the various repair professionals to get the house set for our final walkthrough and closing. When we had to postpone our closing due to a family emergency, he was flexible and willing to reschedule for the next business day. He also was nice enough to do a second walkthrough with us. Then, when all was said and done, he gave us each a big hug. Jolen is a genuine, down to earth guy. I can’t recommend him enough.

jacob banik

Steve is as amazing to work with!

Nicki Schultz

Jolen's knowledge of real estate and the Scranton market helped us enormously with our real estate transaction.

He was on our side the entire time and helped greatly with negotiations and assistance with all administration tasks. I would not hesitate to recommend Jolen to anyone that was in need a real estate professional.

As a home inspector, Jasmine is pleasure to work with.

Caring, hard working, and passionate about her clients. If you're looking for a realtor in NEPA, call Jasmine!

Robbie Risley

Jolen was great to deal with from the very first time we met him up until the closing.

He was so knowledgeable with every question we had. And there were a lot since it was the first time selling a home. Jolen went above and beyond for us. He made sure everything was moving smoothly and even when we hit a snag he was quick to put everything right back on track. He responded almost immediately throughout the whole process. He is kind, honest, patient, prompt, and professional. He made sure our experience with him was all very positive.

zuser20160929190157842

jessicamary223

She goes above and beyond for her clients!

The best realtor in the area! THE BEST! I reached out to Jasmine because she had helped multiple friends in the past and they all had such wonderful things to say about her. I moved from the area a few years ago and wanted to come back. She had sold my house when I moved and we became great friends and I wanted to move back. She makes the process so much easier for an outsider who doesnot live in town with videos, FaceTime calls and virtual-tours so you feel comfortable to make such a big decision. Also the way she accommodated her schedule to help us because we were in a different time zone was outstanding! We were overwhelmed but she just makes the process so much easier from mortgage to closing. We all recommend her to all my friends and family. She has such a sweet therapist voice, haha!

Destiny Singh

When you meet Jasmine she says, Real Estate, Real simple and Real Results and unbelievably she means every word of it!

I am thrilled to say that she has made my every real-estate dream come true and she will be my go-to realtor for life. I was so puzzled with incomplete information on google that when I called and reached out to her she was so responsive and diligent with any query I ever had and connected to all the right people in the area right-away. I just can’t thank her enough. Jasmine sold my house with such amazing marketing, photos, postcards, google and all her realtor network. We had a buyer in a week and then I bought my dream home with her. She timed the whole process like magic. Absolutely recommend! Such a professional.

Harroop Ahuja

Jasmine’s market research is so thorough!

! I am absolutely amazed and can’t say any more good things about her!! Jasmine held my hand like a child from the starting of the process to the end and made it super-easy like a dream. I can’t even believe how patient she was when I asked her questions every hour of the day! It made me comfortable that she had her MBA and explained us every process in detail with so much love and passion. I met Jasmine to buy my parent’s house, but ended up buying and selling multiple investment properties, flips, my own house twice and I recommend her to all my friends and family after we bought my business with her too. Such a wonderful person, both inside and out. It’s so exciting to work with such a professional and did I tell you she is gorgeous!!

Jolen was wonderful!

He wasn't pushy at all. After just a few showings, he already knew what we'd like to see and what we'd not be interested in. He was very patient with all our questions and concerns. His replies were immediate and helpful. He truly makes you feel like you're his only client because his dedication and commitment is unparalleled. We could not have found the house of our dreams without him. If you are looking for a realtor that listens, understands, somehow knows the answer to every question you could possibly think of and really takes the time you deserve, look no further! If we are ever are in the market to buy or sell in the future, I won't even hesitate to call him. You won't go wrong by choosing him as your realtor

Rachel Drayer

Jolen Brennan is an exceptional realtor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

He was very good to my husband and I, and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. When the first home we were looking to purchase had a bad inspection, and we had decided to terminate the contract, within an hour, he emailed us other listings, and in those listings, one was actually the home we ended up buying.

kam11980

Worked very hard throughout the process to get the deal done.

Ours was not an easy transaction but Steve hung in and helped make sure everything went as smoothly as it could

gdolinish

It was a true pleasure working with Jolen in purchasing our first home.

Jolen was very patient and helpful in our year long search for our perfect house. He is very knowledgeable and promptly responded to all questions and inquiries. I would highly recommend Jolen to assist you in purchasing/sellinga home.

Jolen was amazing!

After working with 2 realtors prior that were slow to return calls and showed little interest in showing homes, Jolen was a breath of fresh air! From the first time I met him, I knew I wanted him as my realtor and it was one of the best decisions I ever made! Once he knew what Iwas looking for in a home, he showed me only the homes that met my needs and in my price range. He was quick to return calls, answered all my questions, and had the ability to add some levity to an exciting yet stressful time. It didn't take me long to recognize he was an expert in his field and a man of integrity. I highly recommend Jolen to anyone looking for a home. You will not be disappointed! Anne Marie S.

Amazing personality and knowledge.

Very helpful and approachable. She guided me through multiple deals at the same time.

Keyur Mavani

Steve helped make the process quick and painless.

From putting in the offer to the closing he was very helpful and efficient! And when the bank tried to push back our closing date Steve fought for it to stay on track and succeeded. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

zuser20150313081537807

Jolen is a great guy who takes care of his potential home buyers he is even the one that found us the house we bought.

Jolen is very professional. A very honest person and on point when going through the process of selling our home. I would recommend jolen when buying or selling a home. Thank you Jolen.

zuser20140602193702712

Steve was very knowledgeable and put in a ton of work to find me that perfect investment property.

He found me an awesome cash-flowing property and I know he’s got years of expertise in that sort of thing. This guy knows his stuff and still helps me out a year later with any questions I have.

Scott Sznyter

I cannot say enough great things about Jolen!

My wife and I thought we were going to have to wait a while before trying to buy a home of our own. Jolen contacted me, we talked, and he put me in touch with seasoned professionals who analyzed our situation and steered us in the right direction to make things happen! Jolen also helped us find a perfect home that was tailor-made for us in so many ways! And every step of the way he gave great advice and put us in touch with exactly the right people! I am a fan and can't recommend him strongly enough!!!

yalopez0112

Jolen helped me from the very beginning of my search.

He gave me great insight on homes I thought I would interested in but weren't everything I wanted. He directed me to several homes that came on the market within hours. He was always available to be contacted. I will definitely be reaching out to him again when I need to upgrade.

emmygirl423

Jolen is the epitome of an agent that puts his clients’ needs and desires at the forefront.

.. my experience was beyond my expectations... he worked tirelessly to help me and my wife find the perfect house that meet all of our demands.... he was available to guide us trough the process step by step reassuring us that we’d find what we wanted and when we were discouraged he helped us work through all the negatives and without home we wouldn’t have found our DREAM HOME.... a thousand stars to Jolen he will be my agent for every real estate transaction from here out... I can’t recommend him enough...

vcicco

Mark was fantastic!

Mark was responsive. I never had to question if he received my text or email. I requested to see many properties and he graciously showed me every one! He is energetic and very excited to help find the right property! Thank you Mark.

Dawn Gilliland

Closed on my first home today - Jolen was honest, diligent, professional and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way.

He’s one of the good ones!

bryanfilarsky

Fantastic agent - listed my house for sale and made it a smooth process.

Which was really good because I was busy and out of state. He understands the local market really well (pricing, negotiation, timing, etc). Best of all he made sure the to hold the other parties involved (the buyer and buyer's agent) feet to the fire whenever anything came up, such as their financing was taking extra time. I did not have to do or worry about much other than get my updates and cues from him. Great experience with Steve!

Buying a home don't have to be a nightmare.

You just need a really good realtor with a lot of knowledge of the market, with patience and one who will lookout for you. That's the tools that Jolen Brennan have, but the most important he is also a homeowner and a family man. He knows what it means to be a first time homeowner, you have to get it right the first time. Not once I got that look from him you taking too long to buy not once he suggested to buy out of my budget. He wanted me to buy that special place you call home. It took me over a year to find my house. Jolen knows the areas, good schools district if you have kids, the areas with high and low property taxes ect.. If you want a realtor that only thinks about his commission than Jolen is not your guy. If you want a realtor who is going to work hard for you than call Jolen. Thank you Jolen for everything. My wife is very happy with the house. If the wife is happy you know the rest.

Luis Cardy

Many thanks to Mr.

Brennan for selling our vacation home! He is exceptionally knowledgeable of the market and provides excellent information on home value and selling price. Mr. Brennan is also extremely personable in his approach to his business.

JoelBeetsch

Jasmine is one of a kind realtor.

I have never met a person who is so professional, creative and understanding of your personal needs at the same time. She put my parents to so much ease because she spoke our language and was extremely fluent in English at the same time. My brother is self-employed and it was getting very hard to piece of all the pieces of the puzzle together for him to buy a house and a business. Jasmine handled all our real estate transactions very well. She is my whole family’s realtor, I keep recommending her in a heartbeat.
