Reviews and Testimonials

I received special attention in the sale of my mother's home because I reside in CA. Mr. Perenick went above and beyond a broker's responsibilities in order to assist me in getting the house sold. I cannot express how greatful I am for his services. He was honest, professional, expeditious, and willing to take on additional additional tasks without complaint. If I were to ever need real estate services in the Berkshires again, I would definitely hire him in a second.

Andy was extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. Always had a positive outlook and was very receptive to our ideas about what might help the house sell. Extremely responsive and very knowledgeble about houses in the area. All in all, an excellent experience for us and this is the third house that we have sold.

As a first time home-buyer and being quite an anxious person normally, Andy Perenick was able to make this process work for me. He was great with his responsiveness to questions, and my eagerness (that may have bordered on neurotic). Andy was able to pick up the communication when I needed information from the lawyer and bank. I appreciate his willingness to take the time to connect the dots when I felt left in the dark or needed clarification. If I am in need of a realtor that seems to love what he does and works with my best interests in mind, I would definitely choose to work with Andy Perenick again!

Dear Andy,

Buying or selling a home is not a simple matter. In fact, I learned it can be quite the opposite. It becomes a "journey." When I decided to sell the home I shared with my late husband for 27 years, it became apparent that I most definitely would need guidance and support. From the moment you first walked through my door, I knew you were the right person for that on so many levels. Not only did you patiently answer and address all my questions, but you also offered meaningful and strategic advice pertinent to my situation. I commend you for understanding my wide range of emotions. Leaving a home that has honored a storybook of memories is both heartfelt and difficult. I will always hold your kindness to me and your admirable professionalism in high regard. I plan to undoubtedly refer you in the future to any prospective buyers and sellers. They will be fortunate to have you represent them. Thank you Andy for accompanying me on this "journey".

With sincere appreciation,

"Thank You" would never be enough for someone like Andrew Perenick. As young people would say "he's awesome." Having to sell a house that was in the family for more than 50 years is always a challenge particularly if you live a distance away. Andrew and his "dream team" had the connections and resources for getting the house in shape to put on the market--chimney repairs, land surveying, sewer repairs, etc.. At all times he kept me informed about the open houses, progress on the repairs, and he generally called to keep in touch on all matters. Although it took awhile to sell, Andy did present me with the perfect buyer who really appreciates the house. Overall, Andrew Perenick is a hard working, personable and comforting individual who keeps you calm and focused throughout the process. I would wholeheartedly recommend Andy as a realtor, resource person and friend.

We wanted to thank Andy and Doug for all the hard work they did when it came to selling our home and finding us a new one. Andy goes above and beyond the "other" guy. Andy showed our house more times in the first 6 weeks than anyone else did in 10 months. He found 2 buyers for us and was able to close the deal in a very short time. Doug stayed vigilant on finding us a new home that met our criteria and continued to call us daily on new or reduced listings. Everyone on the team, including Michele, is an absolute pleasure to work with. What a great bunch of professionals.

I could not have had a better experience working with Andy and Berkshire Dream Home. I gave Andy the very difficult task of selling a home for me while I lived several hours away. Andy could not have been more accommodating. He helped me find local contractors to manage some necessary repairs, oversaw their work for me in my absence, and made sure the house was in the best possible condition for showing at all times. Andy was either available to me or got back to me promptly throughout the sales process which made things so much less frustrating. Andy also set reasonable expectations about what price I could expect for my home and found me 2 competitive offers in 6 weeks time, at or close to my asking price. From his initial evaluation of my home through the closing Andy could not have been a better partner. I highly recommend Andy and his team for going the extra mile. Thanks Andy!

Thank you so much for everything BDH has done for us with putting our new home in place. It's been a rough road getting here but we made it and it's because of you and Doug that we're here. We couldn't have done this without you. We love it here and the neighbors have been very welcoming.

We can't thank Andy enough for his efforts in selling our family home in Pittsfield; that we had for the past 37 years. Our parents were still in the home and it became time for them to downsize. Andy became a crucial part of the team to make that happen. Since all of us "kids" have moved away from Pittsfield, it became evident very quickly that we were in expert hands as Andy would stop by the house to help out with just about anything we needed while preparing to sell our home and move out. Andy constantly went above and beyond the call of duty helping out with everything from home staging and repairs to emotional support and guidance. Andy has an extensive network of professionals that were always available to help with home issues from electrical repairs and asbestos removal to closing the sale and moving. He even lent us his moving truck at no charge. Andy is a great communicator, has a very upbeat positive personality, yet is very upfront and realistic when setting expectations. By the time the house was sold and it was time to move out my Mom felt that Andy "was the son that never moved away!". Thanks Andy, job well done! I can not recommend his services enough.

Andy Perenick served as my realtor for a sale of my property in Pittsfield.  He coordinated with me in the Albany area where I reside; he was thorough, professional, and caring.  He kept in touch and he kept on goal. His persistence and focus yielded a very positive outcome. I highly recommend him for his skills.

Selling a family homestead that has been in our family for over a hundred years was an emotional experience for us. However once we hired Andy as our seller’s agent that difficult task was made easier. Andy acknowledged and respected all of our feelings. He was able to relate to our emotions with a perfect balance of understanding, insight, caring and humor.

Andy started the process by guiding us on how to prepare our property for the sale. He explained the importance of pricing our parents' home realistically in today's market. Andy was a true professional from the moment we placed the house on the market until the closing. He was readily available to answer questions and concerns. Andy always kept his word and followed through with what he told us. He promptly returned phone calls and text messages even from places as far away as California. We always felt our sale was a top priority with him. Andy also went above and beyond what other realtors do. For example, he even plowed a place for the new owners to park!

Andy was our realtor but in the process he became our friend. We therefore highly recommend Andy for all your real estate transactions.

Andy, I want to thank you for all you did in helping us complete what was a very complicated sale of our home in North Adams. We had two break ins with very significant damage after you had secured a buyer with a purchase and sale agreement. The damage opened up Pandora's Box and one repair led to another. I got quite an education about town inspections and code updates that were required. We do not live in North Adams and you handled so much related to clean up and removal of items required by the purchase and sale agreement. You found the right people to take care of things and at a very reasonable price. The sale could not have occurred without the great attention to details and follow through that you provided. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a selling or buying agent for property.

Thanks again Andy.

Andy Perenick is by far the most professional Realtor I've had the pleasure to work with. Having had my real estate license for many years, and having managed a real estate office in the past, I've been a part of the selling/buying process a number of times. I've purchased and sold 6 of my own homes. Andy was the listing agent for the recent sale of my home. To say the sale was a bit challenging would be an understatement. Andy maintained a high level of professionalism at all times during the sometimes delicate negotiations when it came to keeping my home under contract. The purchase/sale of a home is probably one of the most emotional/stressful times of our lives, and Andy was always able to take things down a notch and defuse all of the emotions (most of them mine) while maintaining a high level of professionalism. I would not hesitate to recommend Andy and his staff to anyone purchasing or selling a home or commercial property.
