We decided to buy our first house with Harlan after a class he gave about real state (he was not the only realtor we met). He found a house perfect for the two of us and negotiated a very good price. Our transaction included dealing with people oversees and Harlan was always positive when the sellers where slow getting the papers to the US. At the same time, he was putting the right amount of pressure to get the deal closed. We highly recommend that you go with him for one of your biggest purchases in life. He also comes with a network of very qualified and honest people. His inspector is great. Besides a great realtor he is a very nice person with a lot of energy!
