Frequently Asked Questions

What’s Philadelphia like to live in?

Philadelphia is the City of Brotherly Love. While it may have a tough reputation, we know just how amazing Philadelphians really are. We have the best sports in the country, great food like Angelos, and our cultural scene only seems to improve. With neighborhoods like Fishtown, Center City, University City, Queens Village, and countless others, there are always great places to explore that have deep roots in the history and culture of the city. 

How long have you been in the business?

Nick Giganti, our team leader, has been in the real estate business for over ten years. In 2017 Nick Giganti decided to form the Hunters Real Estate team to make a more significant impact on the Philadelphia real estate market. As a team, we have multiple years of experience in the Philly scene, which has fostered our reputation due to the success of our repeat clients and referrals. 

Why do I need a real estate agent to buy or sell my home?

With the Hunters Team, we guarantee a seamless, stress-free transaction. We are licensed agents with years of experience, so we always strive to give you the best information and resources to ensure we buy your home or sell your home as quickly and efficiently as possible.

While it may sound like a great idea to sell your home on your own, typically, working with an agent can net you more on the sale of your home, even with commission! We understand the market and what is a fair price. Zillow estimates provide a decent estimate, but that’s all they are, an estimate! Our years spent representing clients in Philly helps ensure we get top dollar and the best deals for our clients! When you succeed, we succeed!

How do I know you will get the job done?

Before you select us as your agent, we want you to know just how effective we have been for our clients over the years. For example, in 2021, our team closed over 100 transactions. That means over one hundred clients trusted us to get them to closing!

What does your team do differently?

Our team prides itself on teamwork to get the job done. While we have over ten agents, we also employ an in-house operations manager, transaction coordinator, and marketing coordinator. We ensure that each transaction and client has our full and undivided attention with multiple eyes on it, so everything remains seamless. In addition, we have a passion for real estate, so we are always learning, growing, and networking to be the best real estate team in Philadelphia.

What do you think of the market?

Many of our agents got into this field since real estate is an ever-changing entity. Our team is prepared for any market shift, and we welcome adversity with open arms. Our agents are seeing great opportunities for buyers and sellers across the city!

Is it a good time to sell?

Like any business, the real estate market is constantly shifting due to the multiple factors that push or pull prices. Depending on your situation, we can determine if it makes sense to sell your home or wait for a better opportunity. It’s vitally important to talk to one of our experienced agents to see what makes the most sense for your situation. If you are considering selling your home and moving away from Philadelphia, we can help you figure out what’s in your best interest.

What marketing systems will you use to sell my home?

Each property is different, so each requires a personalized plan. Some options include social media marketing, email marketing, door knocking, cold calling, networking, paid advertising, signage, professional photography, staging, print marketing — the list goes on and on! This doesn’t even mention our database of over 12,000 contacts we are in touch with regularly.

How will you keep me informed about my listings/sale of my home?

If your agent is not already in touch with you daily, we ensure you get a weekly status update. We can also put you on the listing portal to ensure you receive updates and reviews from showings.

What is the first step in buying a home?

The first step is to contact one of our agents, of course! Then we can refer you to a great lender to get pre-approved if you need a mortgage so we can see the budget we will be working with!

Can you recommend anyone who can help me obtain a mortgage, make home repairs, get title work, have contracts reviewed, etc.?

Short answer: YES! We have built great relationships with lenders, title representatives, contractors, inspectors, attorneys, and even expediters. We will be ready for anything that comes your way and help ease any anxiety you may feel during the buying and selling process.
