" Having worked with multiple agents before, I can honestly say that Selma is the best. We were relocating from Boston and had a very limited amount of time to search for our house. Selma knows the Mainline like the back of her hand since she has been in the business for so long. She really listened to our priorities and found us our dream home after 2 days of looking, within our budget to add! She previewed all the new listings and sent us feedback so that we wouldn't waste our time when we were in town. And if there was a house that looked interesting as we were driving around, she could tell us what the listing price was, the pros and cons, and have us looking at the house within a couple of hours by calling her right hand woman, Andi. Her negotiation skills are comparable to a litigator. We had our contract negotiated and signed within 24 hours of making our offer, again in our favor. Andi and Selma made the whole stressful process of buying a house seem like fun.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this team to anybody who is looking to buy a home.
- Harvey and Joanne
 
" In 2013, I decided to downsize from my suburban home to a condo closer to the city. Selma was so terrific to work with. She was able to understand exactly what I was looking for in my new home, and once we found it, she gave me unsurpassed advice on the area and the buying process. When it came to time to sell, she timed the listing right and it sold in 72 hours! Work with Selma and her team; you won’t regret it!" 
 
"Selma – Mark and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work, persistence and patience in selling the Chelsea condo! You were relentless in getting this condo sold – and we want you to know how very much we appreciate you and all that you have done on our behalf. Most importantly, thank you for being a true friend throughout and for also caring about Mark and I personally these past few months. Your kindness truly touched our hearts! We hope to see you and your husband over the summer for a relaxing drink by the bay!! Our sincere thanks,"    -  Mark and Margaret
 
"We had been looking for a home for quite some time and had worked with numerous agents in various towns around Philadelphia. Selma, David & Andi were they only team that sent us real time alerts on new listings which led to the purchase of our current home. David met us at a home in Chestnut HIll and we new instantly it was "the one." We called Andi in the office to get the paperwork started and we drew up an offer that required a response from the sellers's by midnight that same day. They accepted and we closed about a month later. Although the contracting and closing process couldn't have gone smoother, it was Selma's savvy negotiating skills that closed the deal for us. We couldn't be happier!"  - Kim & Lain
 

"Selma and her team did a marvelous job in selling my home--attentive, responsive, diligent, and extraordinarily hard working. Selma said she would get it sold--and she came through--a remarkable feat in a "down-market." Selma says she sells the Main Line--now I know precisely what she means. Great job. My sincerest appreciation for Selma's tireless efforts."  -  Mark A. Hoffman

We would definitely work with her again and recommend her to others."  - Chad & Kerri

  "Our experience with Selma was nothing short of fantastic. Her level of attention and service made us feel that she really understood our needs. She knew exactly what to show us and didn't waste our time with things we would not want to see. Her professionalism, experience and negotiating skills saw us through some rather amusing and unusual real estate situations. After showing much patience during our long search for the perfect house, we can honestly say that Selma recognized our ideal home before we did for all it's attributes that met our criteria. We couldn't be happier with the home we bought and Selma certainly saw its potential right away. Selma is a really great resource. She knows the area like the back of her hand, can tell you where to find everything and all about the community. On a personal note, she is a lovely, fun person to spend time with. She made us feel like we were in great hands throughout the entire process. Shopping for home can be a tiring experience, mentally and physically. Selma has boundless energy, and her enthusiasm is contagious and will see you through your experience successfully. We still consider Selma to be a great friend." 
 

"Thank you so much for making both the buying and selling experience as pleasant and rewarding as possible. You found us a buyer, kept your eye on the big picture and made sure the deal for the sale of our home went through without a hitch. On the buying side, your negotiating skills helped make the home of our dreams a reality. You were even willing to go above and beyond and continue to help iron out issues that arose after closing. Your help was invaluable and will always be greatly appreciated. We will certainly send our referrals your way."  - John and Penny Ellison

"Dear Selma, 
Thanks for your help and guidance. We have been doing business since 1982 and always have some laughs along the way. Best wishes for a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year."

Selma is the best!  What more do I need to say?  She was a true advisor to me and my family as we were relocating from Connecticut to Philadelphia.  I recognize this is relatively minor considering the distance …  but factor in that we were working within a very tight time frame in January & February – I think it adds a new perspective!   We literally were wading in snow of over 20 inches to look at homes.  We saw over 20 homes over 2 weekends, during the brunt of the blizzards.  Selma was amazing!   Tenacity is an understatement.   Then once we found the home we loved, Selma was a bulldog at getting the home for us at what we all agreed was an excellent price.   We now are living in an incredible home that we truly love.  Selma made it happen. 
She is simply the best.
  - Cindy

 

The slogan Selma sells the Mainline should not be taken lightly. She certainly does so, but way much more! From the minute I listed my home to the minute she put the sold sign up every issue ,matter,and detail was handled with incredible attention. The entire experience was seamless. Selma was never too busy to return a phone call,text,or email. She zeroed in on the sale of my property as if it was her only listing. She used every venue possible to advertise the property and make the sale happen. Her 30+ years of being in the business speaks for itself.I I simply could not imagine ever recommending anyone but Selma because of the awesome service she gave me and my family. There is a reason why she earned top of the rock designation! If you have a property to sell or buy...go with Selma...I promise you you won't regret it!   - Dr. & Mrs. Raymond Joseph

Selma helped me buy my beautiful Mainline home. She knows every inch of the territory and she gave me wise advice on location, considering my family and what we were looking for. Selma is a great strategist in her market, knowing many of the sellers and the histories of the properties and neighborhoods, through her long connection to the community. She gave me very personal service when it came to visiting homes for sale. And, when it came to negotiating on a property, she was a tireless advocate. Selma is so successful because she loves her clients and puts so much of herself into her work. She is a great asset to any buyer. Selma truly sets the standard for real estate purchases in the Mainline.

Despite the fact that we were selling during terrible market times, Selma generated a substantial number of prospective home buyers and ultimately sold our home at the right price. She also found us a lovely condominium at an excellent price. Selma certainly delivers what she promises and is a dynamic sales person. It was a pleasure to work with her.  - Louise and Bill Steerman

 I had tried to sell my condo in the past with no luck. A neighbor recommended I call Selma Glanzberg. Within one week Selma got me an all cash deal with my asking price. This lady is incredible! !! A seasoned agent who waved her magic wand to make my wish come true! !! -  Nancy
 
 We stumbled upon Selma at an open house several years ago . What a fortunate day that was for us . Her patience, professionalism , expertise in the real estate business , devotion to the job, and high-energy made our relationship a wonderful experience . Her relaxed style fit well with us. Selma made the process of both selling and purchasing go smoothly . We were extremely pleased with the manner in which she engineered the entire process . Always a phone call away , she was available to show us property at a moment's notice. She was proactive and kept us informed even though we were out of town seven months of the year . We were equally pleased with the manner in which she handled the sale of our property. The photographic brochure , magazine advertising , agent tours and networking culminated in an agreement of sale in just 28 days. A kind and caring person, we feel very fortunate to have worked with Selma. - Sue and Joe
