success stories


Faircrest Heights

"I met Zack Grakal and Ben Bellet about 4 weeks ago while interviewing real estate agents to handle the sale of my residence noted above.  They impressed me with their preparation, knowledge of the real estate market in my neighborhood and clear plan to market and sell my home. I signed a listing agreement with them and the following week, my home was in escrow to be sold.

Since that time, Zack and Ben have handled all of the details relating to the sale and have done an excellent job at keeping me informed of everything that is happening with the sale transaction.  They have never kept me waiting for an appointment and have always been very prompt at returning any of my calls.  They are always very happy to answer all of my questions and concerns.

Aside from packing up my belongings to move, I basically did not have to lift a finger in this transaction.  Zack and Ben handled it all.  The escrow on my home is scheduled to close in about a weeks time and I fully expect it to happen as planned, just as the other aspects have happened. Considering how smoothly everything went with the sale of my home, I would definitely recommend that you sign a listing agreement with Zack and Ben!"



"Zack and Ben are GREAT! I needed them 2 times. Once to rent my home and once to sell my home. They had my home rented at top dollar within a couple of weeks with fantastic tenants. Try had my home sold within a few weeks of listing. They helped every step of the way, from repairs to inspectionsto closing. They were always available and handled everything with professionalism. I highly recommend this fantastic team."



"It was truly a pleasure working with Zack and Ben. I sold my house quickly, at the price I had targeted and with the clauses I had hoped for. Zack made sure that all the open house days, transactions, and inspections went smoothly, responded to my questions immediately, and was there in person  throughout to make sure that everything was done correctly and in an efficient manner. And the other plus is that both Zack and Ben are very pleasant people and easy to work with. I highly recommend them. You will be in good and safe hands! They know the market well and do their utmost to protect your interest."



"Ben and Zach made our home buying experience fluid and simple. They have amazingly calming presences, and negotiated on our behalf at every step of the way. If there was a 6th star, they'd get it from us!"

"They are a great team! Had our house sold in two days at a great price! They know the pick fair area better than anyone and got us a buyer in two days. A trouble free experience all the way through. . Highly recommend Zack . Very personable."



"Zack were terrific to work with! They found a great tenant for me within about a week and had lots of helpful advice along the way, even after the lease was signed. Zack is an expert in my neighborhood, and did a superb job of keeping me informed along the way. I recommend him to anyone looking to buy  or lease a home in this area".

"Ben and Zach made the whole process of selling my home very easy. Due to their experience, knowledge of the area and superb negotiating skills, they were able to deal with issues proactively preventing any surprises or misunderstandings. Most importantly, I always felt they asked and listened to  my opinions and concerns taking them into account when decisions were made. Ben and Zach make a perfect team".



"Ben and Zack were successful in getting our home sold quickly and efficiently, and expertly handled the transaction form listing to closing. When buying or selling a home, have trust in your real estate agent is critical, and fortunately Ben and Zack are extremely trustworthy, honest and  pleasant. They were available whenever needed, and made the process as painless as possible for us. They have a great deal of knowledge of the area in which our home was located, and clearly keep their fingers on the pulse of all that is happening in that real estate market. I would recommend their services without reservation."



"Ben and Zack were extraordinarily competent and professional in handling the sale of our home. It was the quickest and easiest transaction that I have ever experienced and I have bought and sold many properties. They did everything that they promised to do and did it in a very caring manner. I  would use them again in a heartbeat."



"Zack and Ben did excellent job representing and getting my house sold. When the market began to shift late in the summer they held steady with a number of open houses and ramped up the marketing of my home. Once we got offers coming in, was able to accept one just above the listing price and it was  for a very short escrow. They were impeccable with all the detailed work that goes into the closing of a sale. I would highly recommend them for others to consider as their listing agent."



"I cannot rave about these men enough! They were amazing from beginning to end. They immediately honed in on what my purchasing needs were--dialed me into the correct neighborhood, price range, and type of home. Their counsel and complete knowledge of the market saved me money in the end. They  were always responsive, had a plethora of referrals, and were fantastic in keeping me check throughout the highly stressful process. What should be noted is how well they work as a team. Their combined breadth of knowledge, different skill sets and temperments made they a dynamic duo."



"It’s all too easy to criticize brokers. Zack and Ben are truly the rare breed who defy all of the stereotypes. We don’t normally write reviews but our experience was so unexpected that we felt obligated to share. Initially they represented us as a listing agent and their expertise enabled me to list our home at a price that provided ample traffic and a quick sale on our terms. Since we were quite satisfied with how things went down, we decided to use them in our hunt for a new home. As we’re very selective, the most important attribute that we found was their PATIENCE!! In all our years of buying and selling property, this is usually the most lacking quality in a broker. Thankfully, their persistence paid off. We’re now in our home and couldn’t be more satisfied."



"Zack of the Bellet/Grakal Group could not have been a more perfect agent to help my wife and I buy our first home in the Beverlywood area! Not only does he bring local knowledge and relationships, he takes the time to really understand what you are looking for and makes it happen. Without him  as our agent I can say with certainty that we would not be in the beautiful home we are in today. We were not even the highest offer on the property we purchased, but Zack's relationships with local agents gave the sellers comfort that there was a high certainty of closing with us and a smoother transaction for all parties! My wife and I are very grateful for the work that Bellet/Grakal has done for us and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area!"
