I do not know how you would determine who are the most liked, however I can tell you that the office that I am associated with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services-Fox & Roach Realtors is number 1 in listings and sale
Over the years some clients have bought and sold four, five, six, houses from our agents These same people and many,others are quick to mention our name when family, friends and associates mention the need of a real estate agent or brokerage.
In regards to your situation. not to long ago I rented a unit to a couple from New York like yourself who were paying $3,600.00 per month for 650 square feet. who were able to get 850 square feet for $1,850 per month right in the heart of the city within walking distance of numerous restaurants theatres and cultural attractions
If you are looking to buy or rent you can't beat anywhere on the east coast what Philadelphia offers dollar for dollar in housing.
No doubt this is one of the main reasons that our population increased by over 10,000.00 residents last year.
If you should have any additional questions please feel free to contact me. Thank you.
