Seth Lamb is a wonderful realtor. As an out of state buyer, I really depended on him to be my eyes, ears, and everything while searching for the perfect Philadelphia condo. I initially expected that mine would be an easy sale for Seth, however after changing condos mid contract and switching mortgage companies halfway through the process, I realize now that my buying situation was anything but simple. From start to finish Seth was a true professional in every sense of the word. He was reachable 24/7 and made me feel as if I was his most important client. He worked tirelessly and made every effort to get me the perfect property that met my every criteria. I trusted his instinct and judgment enough to buy my home sight unseen, and am confident that Seth found me the home that has exceeded all of my expectations.

I live in Ohio and was looking for a second home in Philadelphia in the Graduate Hospital and Point Breeze areas.  Seth is very familiar with these areas, knowing block by block what property values are and what the neighborhood is like.  I found his perspectives to be very helpful.


Since I was only in town for an extended week-end, Seth arranged showings on Friday, got a great sense of what I wanted.  He sent me a new listing Saturday of a house that had just come on market.  I made the offer on Sunday and we were able to reach an agreement and close in less than two weeks.  Seth went above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor.  He went to the house multiple times to be there with the inspector, to take photographs for the insurance company, and to confirm that items on the punch list were completed.  He worked with the alarm company to schedule the installation remotely and helped with many things that I would normally have done if I lived in town.  Seth was consistently responsive and professional.  I would recommend him as a realtor, particularly in Point Breeze and Graduate Hospital neighborhoods.

I live in Maryland and was helping my sister to buy a house in the Philadelphia area.  Seth Lamb was our agent.  He is the best realtor that we have ever dealt with.  We can call him anytime, even on weekends or at night time.  This is the agent that you can depend on for buying or selling houses.  We would highly recommend to anybody that is serious about buying or selling a house.  We greatly appreciated all your help and your hard work. Thank you very much.

Real estate and buying a home can be a long, infuriating process.  Working with Mr. Seth Lamb, I can honestly say this was not the case.  To set the scenario for prospective clients of Mr. Lamb, let me give you some background information.  Mr. Lamb and I had adjoining desks at a previous, dead end job.  We became friends through work and we both left that particular job after a while.  We kept in touch via social media, and I was happy to see he had became a realtor, as I thought that was a perfect position for him given his demeanor, work ethic, and professionalism.  A few years had past and we were still in contact, the casual Social Media friendship.


 


My (then) fiancee and I found out we were going to have an addition to our family, and our one bedroom apartment in Center City wouldn't cut it anymore.  We needed a new home fast, and we were not in tune with the Philadelphia real estate market.  As most situations like this, I started with, "I know a guy..."  I was a little hesitant at first because I rarely mix any type of business and friendship.  I was confident though, seeing how Mr. Lamb had grown his business, and I knew his professional attitude.  I called him out of the blue.


 


Our initial conversation was us catching up for a bit and having a few laughs, then I informed him this was a business call as well.  Mr. Lamb immediately went into full business mode and I started to get very comfortable with him as my realtor.  I know realty can be like buying a car.  You state to a sales rep what you are looking, and then they show you what they have in stock, or a model with way more bells and whistles than you need and out of your budget.  Then you are hooked and want the more expensive car.  Working with Mr. Lamb was the complete opposite.


 


Mr. Lamb was completely attentive to everything we were looking for in a home, and staying within our budget.  Just as important, he didn't just listen to me, he listened to every detail my fiancee had as well. After some back and forth in what exactly we were looking for in a home and our budget needs, Mr. Lamb directed us towards a few ideas he had in mind for us.  His leg work was phenomenal.  Every home he sent us links to were within budget and had what we were looking for.  It was time to go and see these homes.  Mr. Lamb worked with us on seeing these homes, and worked around our difficult work schedules; often taking time out of his weekends to show us these homes.  After quite a few showings, we found exactly what we were looking for...and got outbid.  It was very disheartening for us, but Mr. Lamb looked at it as a challenge to find us something similar and fast.  About a week later we found that home and bid.  The bid was accepted, at less than the original house!  Mr. Lamb had found us a new construction row home in an up and coming area with everything we asked for:  A roof deck, three bedrooms, huge master with bathroom attached (and even a jacuzzi tub), plenty of space for a nursery and a guest room, and finished basement for our baby to have a playroom.  All of this was in budget too!


 


After the bid was accepted, Mr. Lamb continued to work with us every step of the way with the mortgage, closing costs, and every bit of paper work we would need filled out on time and correct.  I am dyslexic, so the paperwork help was HUGE for me.  If you are in the market for a home in the Philadelphia area I can not highly recommend Mr. Lamb.  He was courteous, attentive, professional, helpful, and generally fun to work with.  He will help you every step of the way and leave no stone unturned, there will be no nasty surprises.  Right now I am ecstatic Mr. Lamb was/is my realtor, and I plan for him to be for many, many years.

Notwithstanding demanding tenants and a difficult and competitive market, Seth made the process of selling our condo a breeze.  His attentiveness, focus on detail, and shrewd business acumen resulted in a quick no-contingency sale for the target amount.  We would happily recommend Seth to both purchasers and sellers!

Seth assisted us in the purchase of a new home recently and was an unbelievable Resource. From the moment we made first Contact, his responses always came within 24 hours of a question by phone or email and often times sooner. He walked us through the entire process up through and Beyond closing.  We felt that he always represented us and our best interest. He was involved in every part of the process to help us answer questions and Ensure that everything was smooth including the closing and transmission of the property. We could not have been more pleased with Seth as our representative and agent through this entire process.

Whether you are buying a new home or selling your current one, if Seth is your agent he will meet all of your expectations. When my wife and I had trouble selling our condo in South Philly a few years back using another agent, we realized after going months without a single offer that we needed a new set of eyes to look at our property. That’s when Seth came on board and hiring him was the best decision we ever made! Seth freshened up the listing, priced it more accurately for that market and was the main man during every open house. Needless to say, we had an offer within two weeks and ultimately sold the condo to that buyer and were very pleased.



Two years later when my wife and I decided to look for a new home in Delaware County we immediately called Seth. We were on a tight timeline to find a new home and with our second baby on the way I knew that Seth would make my family his top priority and that we were in the best of hands. Seth proved that his knowledge and expertise of the suburban market is just as proficient as in the city. Seth found us a beautiful home in an outstanding township within a top-ranked school district in short time and we could not be happier.



Seth is with you every step of the way throughout the process and makes himself available at all hours day and night. Seth is completely hands-on and he will treat you like you are his only client even though he’s jumping through hoops for many more simultaneously. Seth has even checked in with us numerous times throughout the last year to see how my family is doing and to make sure that we are happy with our new home – that is true customer service and professionalism! I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Seth to any potential buyer or seller in the city or out in the suburbs. Seth is truly the best!

I am a first time home buyer whom Seth helped make my purchase. Seth was a really good guide in showing me possible properties. He took the trouble to find out what I was looking for, and guided me towards properties that would likely interest me. Throughout this, he was never pushy or demanding.   




Seth also helped me negotiate a good price for my home. Left to myself I would have probably paid a fair bit more than I did. He also was an invaluable guide in dealing with the process of getting a mortgage and helped me understand the various steps that were needed for closing, in a very short period of time. He was always available and responsive to any questions or actions that were needed, and also took the initiative in calling up my lender and other parties involved to speed up the purchasing process. 



Seth is great to work with, and is very helpful and transparent. I plan to recommend him to those of my acquaintance who are looking to buy a house.
