Judi and the Sayhay team are awesome! They know the market, knew what I wanted and got me the home of my dreams! Exactly what I wanted! Heather, my agent, took a personal interest in me and my needs. She responded to my calls, texts and emails immediately. And Judi called me several times just to check in and see if I needed anything. The office staff at the Sayhay team are great to work with. Friendly, polite and willing to go above and beyond. I HIGHLY recommend The Sayhay team!! Thank you, Judi, Heather and team. I am so very happy!
When we decided to sell our house we interviewed three different realtors and Judi SAYHAY and team blew everyone away. Judi truly heard what we said. She has the expertise to making selling your home easy and fast. Her team is amazing and they walk you through the whole process. We are talking a home stager, photographer, and closing team. You never wonder if Judi and her team are there for you. Judi is on speed dial should we sell again. Having two offers in 24 hours of going on the market speaks for her hard work, knowledge and dedication.
Judi and her team were very knowledgeable on the whole process from the start of just coming to view the house to give us opinions until the very day of closing. She explained everything very thoroughly so there were never any surprises. We knew what was going to happen before it happened, which we greatly appreciated. Judi is very experienced and professional in what she does and we would highly recommend her team to help someone else.
Judi worked directly with us to help sell our house. Her own knowledge about what buyers would be interested in, plus her professional stager and photographer, allowed our house to be sold quickly. Judi benefits from many years of experience. She also uses the technology currently available to educate the seller about the current market. In addition to these skills, Judi and her team consistently communicate swiftly to answer questions.
Honesty and straight-forward communication create a good working relationship. The benefits of an experienced realtor became obvious as we worked with Judi and her team whom we highly recommend.
There’s really nothing negative to say about our time with Judi as our buyer’s agent. She’s extremely knowledgeable and experienced, which showed from the time we interviewed her until the time we closed on our house. We found Judi to be extremely accessible and easy to work with and found her ability to optimize our home search and negotiate thereafter to be particularly impressive. We HIGHLY recommend her.
As first time homebuyers we found ourselves overwhelmed with the entire process and found ourselves endlessly searching the internet and local neighborhoods for the right home for our family. Judi came to us highly recommended and after just one phone call, Judi sat down with us. She explained the entire home buying process and even had some home suggestions ready during our first meeting. Judi was very knowledgeable and experienced and made us feel comfortable and informed throughout every step of the way.
After just our first meeting and letting Judi know a little about us and what we were looking for, we were soon out looking at homes. After looking at the first home we knew we picked the right realtor for us as Judi was open and honest about the home we visited.
She always kept in mind what we wanted out of a home and always kept our best interests in mind. She always stressed wanting to find us a home that was not only the perfect fit, but a good investment. It didn’t take long for Judi to find the right home for us. The home we chose is the perfect fit for our family and it wouldn’t have been possible without us deciding to chose Judi as our real estate agent.
Our family has used Judi 4 times now for buying and selling property. Judi has a wonderful knowledge of the area and of the processes for negotiating a great deal. She is honest, and straight-forward, both qualities that you really want in an agent when you are looking for a new home or selling your home. I honestly feel that I made a friend in Judi 14 years ago when we bought our first home through her.
A couple of days after Judy was given my contact information she called me to find out all of the particulars I was looking for in a home. I had been looking for three years. I knew right away Judy and her team was on a mission to find the right home for me. After only a couple of months, I now own the house I had been looking to buy for three years. Judy assigned me my agent, Stacy Kovaly, who couldn’t have been more responsive or understanding of my wants and needs. Judy and her team are go-getters, and I highly recommend them.
I already recommended Judy and her team to my cousin. They were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in every aspect of my home purchase. I never once had to wait for a reply back. Awesome job and thanks again!!!
Judi has been, by far, the best Real Estate Professional that we have ever worked with. Judi was very knowledgeable and always quick to respond to our questions or concerns. It is very clear that Judi knows the market and knows the business. Additionally, the team that works with Judi is also very responsive, very educated and great at providing a smooth transaction. If you’re looking to work with the real professionals, call the Judi Sayhay team.
A neighbor recommended her, so we interviewed a few realtors, liked what she presented so we signed with Judi. Our house was sold within 1 week. Very pleased.
Judy Sayhay was above and beyond our expectations. She’s ambitious, and professional, as well as caring. We have, and will continue to recommend her!! She is without a doubt, the absolute best!!
They were very professional and highly experienced. Their team made the difference when it came to buying our first home. They walked us through every step of the process and made sure we understood what we were doing every step of the way. This team really knows what they are doing. If and when I do it again I would definitely use the Sayhay team as my go to real estate team.
The Sayhay team made the whole home buying process so stress free and fun! Heather Simonetti made me feel very confident and comfortable from the day I found my home until I had the keys in hand 🙂 She was available nearly 24/7 to answer my every question, and I asked a TON of questions! She worked great with my inspector and mortgage broker and negotiated a great deal. Thank you for helping me find my first home, it’s perfect 🙂
Our house sat on the market with a realtor from the South hills area for 6 months. At the end of our contract we interviewed realtors and chose Judi because of her persistence in getting the listing. We needed a realtor who would be persistent in getting it sold. We were hesitant because she is based out of the North Hills but she assured us she had just as much knowledge of the south.
For the same commission you pay any realtor, she brought in (on her dime) a stager who made the house look like a model home, and a professional photographer. The new online photos brought in 7 times the amount of showings we were used to. The house was under contract in approximately 2 weeks.
If we could go back and do it over, we would have hired her in the beginning. She is very knowledgeable. Some realtors get the listing and you rarely hear from them. Judi is your point of contact and communicates with you regularly. Save yourself the trouble, go with Judi!
The Sayhay Team was excellent to work with on both selling our home and purchasing our new one. Whenever we had a question they were just a text away and always answered quickly. We received full price on our existing home and were able to negotiate a great deal on our new one! We highly recommend The Sayhay Team for any real estate needs!
In 2010 I had my home listed for a short time then had to take it off market. After that time, Judi had occasionally reached out to me with an invite to consider her team when I was ready to relist. Finally late last year I was ready to put my home on the market again. I had selected a realtor for which my employer offered a program that included a commission rebate benefit.
I had reached out to 2 agents with no response to my messages. I then recalled how proactive Judi was in wanting to work with me to sell my home. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the benefits of the employer program by selecting a different realtor. I gave Judi a call and explained my dilemma. Immediately Judi offered to meet the benefits of my employer program and in fact, she did better than the program!
Judi and I met to discuss the marketing plan to sell my home. I was impressed with the research Judi provided with respect to recent homes sales in the area, comparable homes sales, when the homes sold, how long they were on the market, etc.
Another benefit in working with Judi is she provides the services of a professional stager and photographer to prepare and market your home for the most impact to potential buyers. This is invaluable! Judi is not a realtor who puts your home on the internet and forgets about you. She often checked in with me over the course of my listing. I received feedback after every home visit.
I had consistent interest in my home and received an offer within 4 months of listing. Judi takes her business seriously and provides a personal touch to all of her clients. It’s her objective to get the best outcome possible whether you are a buyer or seller. I would not hesitate to recommend Judi and her team!!
Judi demonstrated excellent work ethic, loyalty, professionalism, knowledge, and patience throughout our process. Judi Sayhay, in our opinion, is the absolute best realtor anyone can hire. My husband and I began the search for our new home over 2 years ago. At that point, we were not even sure if we were going to sell. We wanted to engage in a preliminary discussion. She was eager, willing, and incredibly accommodating. She was able to provide us with good and accurate information about our house and its value to aid in our decision.
We waivered several time about selling and at no point did she try to “convince” us one way or another. She allowed us the space and time to make the right decision for our family. When we began actively looking, at no point did Judi ever try to “sell” us a home. She tried to find us the home of our dreams, which she accomplished. She also was able to sell our house within a week for the price we wanted.
We are more than “highly likely” to recommend Judi. We have and we will continue to give her our highest recommendation possible. She is fantastic. You will not be disappointed!
I selected Judi because she had a “no nonsense” kind of orientation. I felt she would be a good negotiator and she was! What I got in addition was her wealth of contacts for painting and maintenance support. The team she recommended did a fabulous job at a very reasonable cost.
Judi had buyers within days of listing and she handled everything including closing. Judi and her team (special thanks to Cindy) made this move as easy as possible. Professional, efficient and always available. I would choose her again without hesitation.
Judi always picked up the phone, or called me back with an hour. Great customer service, and really knows what she is doing! She helped us to pick a price point that would allow us to sell the home quickly and still get the profit we needed.
I contacted Judy when looking for an agent to assist with selling my house. She immediately made time to meet with me same day, spent time looking over my property and making suggestions and went over in detail, her process and timelines. She’s extremely knowledgeable and has a huge network which certainly speeds up the process.
My home was completely updated but only had 1 bathroom so I thought for sure it would sit for a while. Not to mention, it went on the market the first week of November with the Holidays rapidly approaching. She had my house under contract in 16 days. I was floored. I highly recommend contacting Judy for any assistance with either buying or selling your home.
Judi is extremely knowledgeable in real estate, she was right on point with selling our home, so much that it sold within the first few days of listing. Very patient, professional and took her time with my family. She is good at her job and it shows as she was prompt with answering any emails or calls and with her recommendations. I have worked with other realtors in the past and Judi is the one I would recommend.
Judi and Heather were both extremely professional and helpful throughout the home buying process. Being first time buyers, we naturally had a lot of questions that were quickly and honestly answered. I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Judi Sayhay and her team were a pleasure to work with! Both Judi and Heather Simonetti, were very accommodating to our needs and preferences, and as first time home buyers, walked us through the home buying process, assisting us every step of the way! We are very grateful for their knowledge and expertise, and recommend them!
judi was very knowledgeable in her expertise of the real estate market She researched and designed a marketing plan for our home that was flawless. We followed her advice with pricing and staging and with Judi’s assistance we sold quickly. Judi is absolutely the best and we highly recommend her services. She kept us encouraged and informed throughout the entire process of selling our home. In addition, Judi helped us locate the perfect home to purchase and move into.
Judi has a keen sense of what her clients need. She found houses for us to tour, and what we especially appreciated was Judi’s knowledge of the homes and how the house would fit our family’s needs. Judi is a JOY to work with.
The showings and sale of our home went smoothly and thanks to Judy’s great photographer, we had nearly 30 showings in 3 days. The house sold on the third day, so we had to cancel several showings. I would definitely recommend using Judi Sayhay and her team if you are thinking about selling your home. Her guidance as far as listing price was right on, also. You can’t go wrong if you listen to her advice.
Judi consistently took the time to work with me on every detail of selling my home. Even though she had several other listings her fast and honest responses to me made me feel like I was the only person she was working with. I have never sold a home before and she truly made the experience an easy one. Her team was always professional and accommodating to any request I had. Judi is a very talented and hardworking professional. I would recommend Judi SAYHAY and her team to anyone considering buying or selling a home.
My husband and I LOVED working with Judi! Cannot recommend her enough! As first-time homebuyers, she eased our concerns and remained very open and honest with us during the entire process, which is something we truly appreciated. She’s extremely knowledgeable and super quick to respond! She made what could have been a stressful experience – a fun process for us to go through. We will be SURE to recommend her to our family and friends…and use her again in the future! Thanks, Judi!
From the first time meeting Judi we were very impressed with her eagerness, knowledge, follow through. This was just the kind of person you need to sell your house for you.
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Judi on several occasions. Her extensive knowledge of the Pittsburgh area helped us sell our home quickly and when we were ready to search for a retirement home she came through again and helped us find a carriage home with a great location. She is currently working with our daughter and her fiance on their first home purchase.
We have worked with many realtors around the country over the years. Judi would be at the top of the list. Her knowledge, communication skills and professionalism is unsurpassed. And she makes the experience fun as well.
I have a lot of good friends or acquaintances that are realtors and what sets Judi apart during the buying process is her willingness to take a step back and not make the sale about herself. She was focused on us being happy, and she was relentless. We must have looked through 50 different houses. One in particular sticks out to me. As we pulled into the driveway she looked at us and said: “You don’t even like this house, do you? Let’s not even go in” and I said “Yeah, I agree with you. I’m not going into that house.” She obviously took the time to get to know her clients personally, and I consider that a rarity in this business.
Having been a personal friend of Judi’s for 16 years, I would be very likely to refer her to someone looking to buy or sell a home.
Judi did an outstanding job finding and getting us into our new home. During the closing process she was right on top of every step and kept the process moving smoothly. My husband and I are experienced “movers” and between us, this is our 20th move. By far, it was the smoothest, thanks to Judi with her professionalism and drive. Thank you Judi!!
Judi was just incredible. She was very organized from her presentation/proposal to her prompt follow up to my calls and ultimate sale of my home. Her negotiation skills are very sharp as she was tenacious and focused in ensuring we landed the price we wanted for our home.
Judi made the process of selling and later buying a home fun. She helped me sell my home for top dollar, then, several months later when I was ready to purchase another home she helped me through the entire process from inspections to financing. She will always be my agent.
Judi and her team helped us immensely. They helped us get the best mortgage rate and when it came down to selling our house she had it priced right and it sold the first day it hit the market. The whole process went very smoothly and with little stress.
What can I say, but that The Sayhay Team is simply the best! Judi met at a property, that was not in the best condition, she pointed out some issues that I would have completely overlooked. Even though this was a low price listing, Judi treated me with her professional expertise, that I sincerely grateful for.
I only recommend Judi Sahay to people regarding any real estate situations. Judi has taken very good care of us, way beyond her job. She is like family to us. We have known Judi since may of 2000. Have bought 2 homes from her. Will only use Judi. Period. Judi makes your company look good.
My husband and I originally bought our house from Judi and after seeing how hands on and helpful she was to the her seller, we promised ourselves if we ever moved we would use her as our agent. She went to work for us from the minute we called her. Selling your house can be so stressful but Judi made an hectic situation so much easier.
Dear Prospective Homeowners:
It is our immense pleasure to recommend Judy SAYHAY as a real estate agent for any individual or family looking to buy / sell their real estate property in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Judy helped us not only with the purchase of our new home in Wexford, PA for our growing family 5 years ago but also with the sale of the property on our behalf due to a our relocation to California this year.
Judy and her team are very diligent and really took the time and energy to build a relationship with our family over the years which helped us tremendously during the sale of our home. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of Social Media and Real Estate tools to list our property for sale at the right price. We had multiple offers on our home within a week of our listing!!!
A master with the contract negotiations, Judy was able to negotiate well and facilitated a Win-Win outcome for both parties. Throughout our home buying process (5 years ago) and selling process (2014), Judy and her team have demonstrated the highest levels of integrity and trust.
We are pleased to recommend Judy SAYHAY to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She and team are one of the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever move back to the Pittsburgh area, we will definitely reach out to her.
This was our first home, and we couldn’t have been luckier than to have Judi as our realtor. She was friendly, knowledgable, responsive… everything you could ask for. She helped us through every step of the process. We love our new house, but when we’re ready to sell it, I know exactly who I’ll call!
We found a house on Zillow and sent the email through Zillow to three realtors regarding that house. It was a Saturday evening. About an hour later, I received a phone call from Judi Sayhay. The house we were looking at went under contract, so we started looking at houses with Judi. She was very responsive to our questions. (we were first time home buyers) I would recommend her to anyone.
She helped us through purchasing a HUD home. The Hud rep told us at the closing that the last three closings he had were held up due to paperwork errors. After looking at our paper work he said “You have a great realtor!” I couldn’t agree more!!
Judi is the best realtor we’ve had. We were new to the area, and very confused about way Pittsburgh is laid out. She was extremely helpful and attentive. She was very patient with us; and made us feel like we were her top priority. Judi helped to make a tough move, easier. We recommend her to anyone we know that’s looking for a home in Pittsburgh.
When retaining a realitor it is necessary to have someone who is competent, hardworking and trustworthy. It was my experience, Judy demonstrated a high level of competence. Based upon her many years of experience she had a key familiarity with the markets and provided keen insight into both the buyer and seller point of view. She understood the type of home being sought and matched what was available in the market with both budget limits and style desires. She was hardworking.
When you are a position of having to both sell an existing home and find a new one, it was reassuring to know the realitor was moving the ball forward on all fronts. Finally, when you are dealing with the finalization of a sale or purchase and the exchange of information and paperwork that necessarily comes with it, it was crutial to be able to trust the information provided by the realitor. I found Judy to meet and to exceed my expectations with regard to competence, work ethic and trustworthiness.
So often with a large agency, the listing tends to fall through the cracks; however, Judi was very attentive in showing our home in Bradfordwoods, PA. We would and have recommended her to others.
Judi is a true professional & a delight to work with! She is knowledgeable about all aspects of the business and made our buying & selling process easy. Judi worked extremely hard to sell our house and to find new ones for us to consider. She has a great personality and was patient and understanding with us. Though she is extremely busy, Judi always found the time to call us or meet with us in person.
We are so happy to have met Judi and will call her first if/when we decide to move again in the future.
I had the pleasure of working with Judi during late 2010 and early 2011. Judi and her team were most helpful during what was my first time selling a house.
Judi listed, and subsequently sold, my 3 bedroom/2.5 bathroom townhome in Marshall Township (Wexford, PA) that earned me a handsome profit. At the same time, Judi also represented me though contract negotiations with a local custom home builder for construction of a 4 bedroom/2.5 bathroom home also in Marshall Township.
In selling my townhome, Judi scheduled multiple open houses, followed-up with attendees and prospective buyers, kept me informed throughout the process, and always returned my telephone calls and e-mails in a timely and efficient manner. Judi also attended the closing and ensured contract language was accurate and appropriate.
Judi also attended meetings between me and the local builder to ensure that I was receiving a quality home product at a fair and reasonable price. Judi’s knowledge of the local builder and the local real estate environment were instrumental in helping me negotiate a very good deal on this contract that saved me thousands of dollars. Judi met me at the construction site several times for walkthroughs during the home’s construction. Judi and I inspected the progress regularly to ensure the home was being built to the contract’s specifications so as to protect the integrity and quality of my investment.
In short, Judi exhibited a high level of professionalism and local real estate knowledge that would be helpful to any buyer or seller. As Judi represented me as both the seller of an existing home and the buyer of a new home, I can highly recommend Judi’s services to any prospective seller and/or buyer.
Judi and Sayhay Team, one of the best real estate combination in greater Pittsburgh area. We felt very comfortable working with her from very first day and she made our home buying experience excellent. No doubt, we will highly recommend her.
Over the past 15+ years, Judy has helped me with relocation for a number of physicians and medical physicists recruited to the Pittsburgh area for positions at a healthcare system. She is outstanding in this capacity. She responds immediately to my requests for relocation assistance and goes above and beyond to make sure the clients needs are met – neighborhood, school district, economics, commute to hospital, size and style of home, etc.
The feedback from the families she has worked with include “I have worked with realtors all over the country, and Judy is without doubt the best at helping me find my home.” “Judy made this process enjoyable, and her knowledge of the area and of available properties made our search efficient and effective.”
Because of my experience with Judy, I asked her to assist my daughter and her family in a relocation back to the Pittsburgh area. My daughter found her home in one day based on Judy’s attention to detail regarding her family’s needs in a home. I will continue to consult with Judy for relocation needs for my family members or professionally.
Judi worked with my wife and me to evaluate many homes during our search and provided invaluable advise and expertise. When we had decided on a home, she worked with us throughout the entire purchase process. I highly recommend her and would use her services again in a heartbeat.
Judy is a very knowable real estate agent. She was very responsive to any needs or questions that came up during the sale and purchase of our home. I would not hesitate to use her again should we buy or sell our current home.
Judi assumed responsibility for selling my townhome in Pittsburgh last year. It was on the market with another agent who treated me terrible. The other agent would not show it and never returned my phone calls. The house was on the market for a year. Once assigned to Judi, my house sold in six weeks.
Judi is a very honest and a diligent worker. When I had a water problem, with the home that I was selling, Judi handled everything. I had moved to CA. Judi worked with my insurance company.
Judi helped my fiancé and I purchase our first home. I was very impressed with her professionalism and responsiveness. I called Judi every day – even after hours and she always picked up or got right back to me. She never made me feel like a bother even though I probably was. She was always very patient with my endless questioning and didn’t hesitate to give me her real opinion on any home we were interested in.
Throughout the buying process I truly felt Judi was on our team and her excitement when we got the house we wanted felt as if she was almost a part f the family as well. I can’t say enough good things about Judi. I will recommend her to friends and family and definitely call her again should I need to sell our home or buy another.
We found Judi to be very professional, understanding and responsive to our needs. She assisted us with the purchase of our second home and made the experience fun and enjoyable. Compared to other agents we had worked with-she did not lead us to homes that did not fit our needs (price, area, size) but listened and directed us accordingly.
She is very easy going and able to be a calming force during a very stressful time. We would and have recommended her to others and will be sure to give her a call if we ever sell/buy again.
We are happily settled in our dream home located in Hampton Twp. because of the diligent work of Judi Sayhay. We didn’t make it easy for her though, because we knew exactly what we wanted and wouldn’t settle for anything else. She was committed to helping us find just what we asked for. We were so pleased with her knowledge and tireless efforts that we didn’t hesitate for her to list the home we previously owned.
She didn’t let us down on the selling end either. With the housing market being down, she sold our house in a very timely manner, which took a weight off our minds. We think of her as more than just our agent, she’s like family! Because of her expertise, we’ve recommended her often.
I had the best experience in selling my home on July 29, 2011. All cudos must go to Judi Sayhay [Sahayda]. She made suggestions as to how to stage my home in order to have buyers picture there items in the home. Well it worked; My home sold in three days and I had several offers, one at the selling price. There is no doubt in my mind that,if I would be in the market to sell my current home I would call the number one Real Estate agent, Judi Sayhay [Sahayda].
