My Reviews


Rachel is a pleasure to work with! She is a skilled real estate agent who really knows her craft. When I am doing a deal with her, I know things will go smoothly, and if there are any problems along the way, we will work them out.


Rachel was great to work with! She is very knowledgeable of property values & is dedicated to her job. She responds quickly to texts, emails or phone calls during or after normal business hours. Rachel helps take the stress out of what is a stressful situation for most of us. I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone in need of real estate services. I’m sure Berkshire Hathaway is proud to have Rachel Berlin on their team!!


After living 22 years (in the only home my youngest son remembers), I decided it was time to downsize. Rachel was very helpful and offered great suggestions and encouragement as I staged my home for sale. She was knowledgeable and understanding, and patiently walked me through the listing and selling process. During this same time period, she listened and learned what I wanted in my new home. After showing me several options, she walked me through the purchasing process. I would highly recommend Rachel Berlin to anyone who is considering selling or buying a home.


Rachel was amazing to work with! This was our first house and she handled the transaction flawlessly. It took us awhile to find our perfect house, but Rachel never counted us out! She is very professional, timely, and answered every question we had. We could not have imagined going through this process without her guidance. We would 100% recommend her to anybody looking for a new house!


Rachel is an amazing realtor. She walked me through every step and was patient in helping me understand all of the things that go into buying a house. She is also a great negotiator and is able to accurately judge how a seller is going to respond to an offer. I highly recommend her!


For over four years I have gone back and forth trying to make a hard decision about selling my home, when I finally decided to put in on the market I chose Berkshire Hathaway and requested Rachel Berlin. I had multiple family members who retained her services and all we extremely happy with their outcomes. Needless to say Rachel was a pleasure to work with and guided me every step of the way, making a stressful transition seamless. She is a true professional and is extremely knowledgeable in her profession keeping her clients as her top priority. I will always be thankful to Rachel and sing her praises.


I just wanted to drop a quick note and give my compliments to Rachel.

She was such a wonderful agent and handled the whole transaction as professional should do.  I really enjoyed working  with her.  Wishing her all the best in this business.   Rachel is a great asset to your team.


Dear Rachel,

Your approach to the real estate business and your clients is admirable. Very much so!

Thank you for the information about an estate sale. As my mom and I were dropping off a few castoff boxes at GoodWill from casa del tchotchke, I was reminded of what you said, "James: you'd be surprised at what sells. For the right price, everything goes!"




As a first time home buyer I admit that I was nervous and hesitant to tackle the daunting task of purchasing my first house. After finding a few homes that was interested in, I scheduled a meeting with a buying agent to assist me. As I prepared for the initial meeting I had my guard up, much like I would for the purist of buying a new car and the nonsense that comes with it. I entered Berkshire Hathaway’s local office and there was Rachel Berlin. Only after a few short moments chatting with her, my mind was at ease, the stress levels were at minimum, and I was ready for the journey. Rachel took me as not only as a client, but also a teammate, through this process. I remember bombarding her with questions / requests and I was astounded at the quick and comprehensive responses that I received. Rachel by no means made me feel under pressure at any time. She was there to assist on what was best for me and my situation. She offered advice in an easy to follow step-by-step format to get started. Once I was ready to look at houses, Rachel was on point. We looked at a mixture of homes that both of us had found within the requirements agreed upon. She was fully prepared, offering insightful information and guidance on each and every one. Once an offer was made / accepted she provided me a detailed list that included everyone’s action items and respected due dates. This allowed me to keep constant track of where we were at in the process and mitigated the risk of any confusion as there are many players involved in the process. I highly recommend Rachel as a buying agent. Her knowledge, direction, and ability to execute without error is superb.  


Rachel was very helpful during the whole process of buying my home, ensuring that the closing went smooth and on time. She responded promptly to all questions and guided me through the process. I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for an agent that will help with any the real estate needs.  


I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help with my new house! It is honestly perfect, and I know my family is going to be so happy there. We already are after two days! I couldn't have gotten through all of this without your guidance and support, and I just want you to know how much it means to me.  You are such a wonderful person, and it was so great working with you.  Maybe once I have the house set up you can come see it!  We keep finding the neatest things throughout the house, too, which has probably been the best part so far.  For instance, what we thought was a soap dispenser on the kitchen sink is actually a water purifier! There are neat little gadgets everywhere, and it really is such an incredibly unique house.  I'll never forget your help with getting me this home, and if there is anyone I know looking to buy, I will definitely send them your way.   Thank you again, Rachel!!   


I hired Rachel Berlin to find my new home in Pittsburgh. She gave her full attention to my purchase, making the search for a home very easy. Once found she definitely represented me- by adding to the contract home warranty protection and seller assist items that have saved me money.  Even after the sale she has followed up and has delivered any document request.   I highly recommend Rachel Berlin as a real estate agent.


Rachel Berlin is personable, professional and competent. She helped me buy my first home and I didn't have to worry about anything; she walked me through every step and provided information and service after the sale. I definitely recommend Rachel Berlin to look after your interests during the home buying process.


  As a first time home buyer, I was a total stranger to the process and had lots of questions.  Rachel was very knowledgeable and guided me through the process. Rachel was responsive, punctual, and resourceful.  Thanks Rachel!  


  Rachel Berlin was my real estate agent and successfully sold my home on April 15 2015.   This was a challenging task for me since I had just relocated to Connecticut in December.  I needed someone that I could trust to get the job done in an efficient manner.       Once I decided to sell my home on Mt Washington in December of 2014, I called Rachel to help: as expected she did a great job.  Since there were very few comparisons or "comps" available,  Rachel used her excellent analytical skills to derive a very fair and equitable price. She was very helpful throughout the selling process particularly since I was not living in Pittsburgh. She helped me find the right estate sale company to help sell the household items that I no longer needed.       I highly recommend Rachel as your real estate agent!
