Pittsburgh, PA Homes for Sale Testimonials
Arlene and her excellent team did a great job for
us with the sale of our last home. The house sold
faster and for a higher price than we expected. The
marketing materials were great, and Arlene did her
typical wonderful job of negotiation. Arlene had also
helped us buy our last two houses and she and her
team were great to work with through that process

We are extremely please to recommend Arlene Guastella
and her staff with the highest enthusiasm. Arlene
has a very high level of energy, outstanding knowledge
of the real estate market, and extraordinary negotiating
skills. From the moment we decided to sell our house,
Arlene and her marketing group were very energetic
in preparing the house of sale, offering expert advice
in pricing, staging and producing very high quality
marketing brochures. Arlene then negotiated a sale
in less than a week at a very favorable price. Arlene
also served as the agent for the purchase of our new
home and again her negotiating skills were outstanding.
Arlene was wonderful to work with and her staff is
absolutely first rate. We were extremely happy with
the entire process and never felt pressured into a
deal, as we have in the past with other agents. Arlene
clearly has an understanding of her clients’
needs and works very hard to complete a deal that
is fair and honest for all.

My wife and I recently sold our house in Bennington
Woods using Arlene Guastella from Achieve Realty as
our agent. I would recommend her and her team without
reservation. When all the news was bad in the press
about the housing market, Arlene was able secure what
I considered to be a fair price, in fact it was the
full price, for our house. She remained calm and confident
when we had moments of doubt and felt twinges of panic.
She was professional and represented our interests
throughout the negotiations.
I would use Arlene and her team again without reservation.
I am writing to express my complete satisfaction
with Arlene Guastella. We've been on the market for
six months with no offers in 2007. We renewed our
listing with our new realtor Arlene. Throughout the
entire process Arlene was professional, conscientious
and motivated. I always felt as though I knew Arlene
During our first meeting with Arlene, she listened
attentively as we explained our situation, my husband
received an out-of-state job offer and we were forced
to sell the house by July 2008, and the house sold
on August 2008. By comparing our home with other homes
on the market she helped us set a reasonable listing
price that still left us room to negotiate with buyers
before hitting our bottom line. Selling a house is
the most stress a human can endure. She comforted
us at the most difficult times, and kept the process
going despite hurdles, we are very grateful to you.
The market is rough on sellers these days but you
persisted with your efforts until we hit a satisfactory
Arlene was a pleasure to work with! Easy to talk to,
a good listener, easy to contact and prompt at returning
calls or answering questions. Best of all, Arlene
is a Realtor who makes it her job to help you meet
YOUR GOALS rather than her own.
You’ve got a great head for the real estate
business I wish you continued success. We would certainly
recommend your services to our former neighbors, and
my friends in Pittsburgh.
Kalpana Aaanthasekar and
Vandana and I just wanted to drop you a line to say
thanks for everything. When we had to sell our house
in a hurry to move to Virginia in time before the
kid’s schools reopened, we needed a real aggressive
Realtor®. We were convinced that no one but you
could have done this great of a job.
We were very pleased with the price we got in such
a short time, and with the negotiating of the sale
of our home.
You always gave us honest and accurate information,
even if it was not always the answer we wanted to
hear. We admire this quality of professionalism and
true service and that is why you are so successful.
We were also very pleased with your knowledge of the
North Hills area market. You helped us make the biggest
decision of our lives, both to buy and to sell our
home, a very positive experience for us. We will recommend
you to anyone!
