Lois Fein and John Schwartz were very knowledgeable and professional in advising, marketing, and expediting the sale of our condominium. They were always available and understanding of our concerns. We highly recommend them.

We interviewed several realtors before selecting who we wanted to represent us and our house. Lois and John were the only professionals who had a complete presentation, which included market values, a pricing strategy, a marketing strategy, and details on how they would be able to successfully execute their plan. Their professionalism and attention to detail impressed us throughout the entire process. They were always accessible, and went the extra mile when asked. I would highly recommend them, as they were highly effective, creative, and a pleasure to work with though out the transaction.

Lois worked incredibly hard for our family and helped us sell our condo in a tough market. She was always present for showings, gave us great advice about staging and showing the home and became a good friend to us as well. She also spent hour (and hours) with us showing us homes in Northern NJ area and we found our new home throuh her as well. I would recommend Lois to anyone thinking about buying or selling in this area. She knows her business and is an absolute pleasure to work with.

It is miraculous to find a real estate agent, let alone a husband and wife team, who are able to listen, to grasp who you are and what you want; and who can study your home and advise you to make some minor changes that will freshen your home, highlight its attractive qualities so that prospective buyers will stop, look and think.
Lois and John are the magical duo. They are exciting personalities and were a pleasure to work with; they are deeply committed and work very hard to accomplish the objective. They are highly skilled salespeople, with an array of creative talents that is rare – ranging from staging the photography of the home, to decorating it; and they understand the psychology of the buyer and of the seller. When you meet them, you immediately feel that you are in the hands of highly competent professionals who are worthy of your trust.
I also appreciated the excitement they feel when you give them the opportunity to sell your home. One might expect veterans to be jaded after helping 500 previous clients sell or purchase a home. The opposite is true: what you get is a level of charm, enthusiasm and purpose that they must have expressed when they met their very first client. Lois and Jon love what they do!
And they found a wonderful couple who loved our home and purchased it.
We heartily recommend Lois and John as real estate agents who are at the very top of their profession.

Our home in Lodi was listed with Lois Fein and John Schwartz of Prominent Properties and sold approximately within three months. What sets them apart from other realtors in addition to many other items is they offer professional photography and have the ability to stage your home with tasteful items that enhance your property. Also, they are involved in all aspects of the sale from the listing to closing so the sale will be a smooth transaction. I highly recommend their services.

Mr. John Schwartz is the best real estate agent I've ever had. He understands the local market very well and knows details of each building of which I requested his opinion. That helped me a lot in my decisions. He's pumctual and efficient, always replying to my emails or phone calls very quickly. I like his ways of doing things. Thanks so much for the help in this transaction. As a duel agent you really were fair when negotiating between me and the seller.

We wholeheartedly recommend Lois to anyone seeking an agent and advisor. From the start the process, Lois gave us very practical advice about how to market our home and what we can expect from the process. She did a great job generating foot traffic and we saw immediate results. Most importantly we always felt Lois was one our side - a testament to this was the advice she gave us to turn down an early offer which she felt was too low (and turned out to be right).
Both Lois and her partner John (they make a great team) were always present at our showings and tried to work around our schedule - with two very smalls kids this was important. Her service was very personalized and we find that this sets her apart from other real estate agents in the area.
Finally, once we were ready to make an offer on our new home, Lois was critical in keeping the process moving forward, especially when it came to working with the banks and lawyers - this is very valuable in today's difficult market. We always appreciated her reassuring words - and they turned out to be true - we love our new home.

You know that I can't say enough about all that you did for me. I knew after my conversation with you, that you were head and shoulders above any other realtor I had met. Not only were you familiar with all of the areas that I was looking at moving to; you knew the details of each building along with their amenities, transportation and shopping options and overall value. You listened to what I wanted, helped me noarrow down my choices and made sre that I got everything I asked for. And if that wasn't enough, you got me a better price than I could have ever imagined. I thanks you very much for all your hard work and I will be referring you to all of my friends!

You and John are great realtors. You obviously know the market and how to sell real estate. You gave us your opinion on how to fix things around the condo to get it sold quickly. The buyer actually mentioned that one of the things that drew her to buying the condo was the warm colors of the walls which you recommended. After seeing other condos on the market for months or a year, I was actually surprised ours got sold in within 2 months. You and John are also very personable and if I know of anyone who is either looking to buy or sell something around the area, I will recommend you. Thanks for all you did.
