Howard & Round Table Realty are outstanding! If you're looking for knowledgeable, professional, and courteous service Round Table Realty will not disappoint. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our first home purchase experience. I would certainly recommend Howard to anyone looking to buy a home.

Our experience with Howard Flaschen and Round Table Realty was nothing short of exceptional! From the moment we met with Howard to discuss the sale process of our first home we knew we were in good hands. Howard and Round Table took on a difficult sale and helped with what seemed like an overwhelming process turn out to be a very smooth and painless transaction. Howard's passion, professionalism, and attention to detail made it an easy choice for us to have him on our side for the construction of our new home. Happy we chose Howard and Round Table and wouldn't have it any other way if we had to do it again! Thanks Howard!

Frank Whibley of Round Table Realty  was recommended to us by both a family member and a friend, both of whom had excellent experiences with him. He lived up to his reputation and his company’s “People before Property” trademark to say the least.

My fiancé and I were looking for a home to raise our newborn daughter and we were very picky about we were looking for. We had Frank schedule showing after showing for us, but couldn’t seem to find the right one. Frank never lost his optimistic attitude and constantly reassured us that we would find our forever home. We never felt pressured to choose and never felt like he had other places to be when he was with us. He treated us like we were his only client.

When we finally found the right home, Frank was quick with the offer and necessary paperwork. Any questions or concerns we had he was happy to answer and always easily accessible. We are extremely lucky to have had Frank on our side and attribute finding our house to him. We would recommend him to anybody and will ask Frank to be our Realtor for any real estate endeavors in the future. Thanks Frank!

I'm so excited to think that we'll be living in the complex that seems to suite us the best. So looking forward to seeing you again. After we come down again to have a look, do you have folks that would be able to paint, lay new carpet and not charge an arm and a leg?? I've already got some ideas for colors, carpet, etc. WOWEE, I can't believe this is really happening thanks to YOUR EFFORTS.

My house purchasing experience went extremely smoothly with Howard at the lead.  Howard made if feel as if I was his only client.  Always quick to respond, always available on my time, and provides information about the complicated procedure in plain English!  Thanks Howard for an easy transition into our new home! 

Larry and Jessica Chalmers

Howard, we cannot begin to thank you enough for all you did to guide us through our home buying experience. Your high level of professionalism, market knowledge and construction expertise made the process that much easier. We appreciate your willingness to genuinely listen to our requests and needs to ensure we found the perfect home. Thanks for being available, even while on vacation, to quickly, and patiently, answer any of our questions to ensure our well-being during the long process. We were always confident that you were keeping us well informed. And, your behind-the-scenes support with our bank and the seller’s realtor was a true testament that you had our best interest above all else. Thanks again for consistently going above and beyond. We are certain that we could not have had better representation, or a better experience. We are so happy in our new home!

No, thank you Round Table Realty for your upmost professional service. From start to finish you tackled every obstacle that arose and always exceeded our expectations. This wouldn't of been possible without you and the expertise that you brought to the table. Words cannot describe how happy my wife, Courtney Brown Boroff and I are with the final outcome. Y'all are the best in the business and highly recommend anyone who is looking for an outstanding realtor, to look no further than to Round Table Realty!

Navigating through the real estate process is a stressful endeavor with many highs and many lows. Complicate the process with foreclosures, short sales, bond programs, and lender inertia and the process becomes even harder. We were so fortunate that we found Keith and Howard at Roundtable Realty. This 8 month journey had so many twists and turns that it seems surreal looking back. As much as we were all interested in a quick close, it did not happen that way for us. There were many weekends spent looking at homes with Keith or Howard. We actually felt guilty for taking up their weekend time and at the end wondered if they really wanted to work with us since we had had one too many deals fall through for one reason or another. These guys stuck by us and didn't give up on helping us find the perfect house. Howard and Keith are true professionals with what they do. It isn't only about their knowledge of the market, or being able to guide a homebuyer along the path with genuine and authentic regard for the homebuyers needs, it is how these two guys treat people...with kindness, respect, and perseverance. Saying thank you just isn't enough.

Howard Flaschen and Keith Francis make customer service their highest priority. They always kept me informed of every necessary detail involved in the purchase of our home, and they were quick to come up with solutions to any problems that arose. During a normally stressful time, I felt at ease knowing our home and our contract were in good hands—their reliability was reassuring. Though always professional, our working relationship with Howard and Keith never felt businesslike or impersonal. I truly enjoyed working with them.

The Schultz Family

Being a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I understand what it means to be there for your clients and to be supportive of them; however, Howard Flaschen, is a broker that exudes what being supportive really means. I was in desperate need of selling my home that was in a great location but not the best condition. Once he listed my home, there were 10 showings within 5 days, and several offers. Howard helped me immensely with the whole process of selling my home, explaining the needed measures to be taken, the pros and cons of each offer, and making the paperwork easy each step of the way, getting e-signatures, etc. I am forever grateful to Howard for his dedication, support and guidance throughout this process of selling my home. Needless to say, I sold my house and received from the great equity I had in my home, but only because of Howard’s skills, expertise and exposure in the Real Estate market at Round Table Realty.

Howard is extremely knowledgeable and professional. His marketing of my home was so awesome, that it sold very quickly. He is straight forward with the facts, and a fun guy too! I enjoyed working with Howard and he handled every detail quickly and thoroughly. I would definitely recommend Howard to anyone looking for a true professional in real estate.

Finding a right real estate company is all about working with true experts. That's a word that a lot of Realtors use, but here it applies in abundance. The Round Table Realty team is staffed with top professionals: sharp, informed, attentive, and committed to the highest standards of customer care.

Jeff Shore - Renowned Nat'l New Home Sales Expert, Former National Sales Pres. of KB Home

Our story started about 5 weeks ago. We wanted to sell our home and we had another home, fully paid for that we wanted to move into but we were worried in this market about prices. We were worried about being able to move our home. Howard came to our house, sat down and explained the whole process to us. He was professional, he showed us exactly what our options were, and within 5 weeks our home was sold and we are closing. We really were not familiar with the home prices because of the economy. Howard sat down and explained to us and put the data out in front of us. He showed us what our home was worth, he showed us exactly what we could get for it. Oddly enough it came within $200 [of what we thought we would get]. In the future we are going to be buying homes as investment and we will be going with Round Table Realty. They made it a very fun experience. Its not like one of those big warehouse, real estate agencies, where you're just lost in the numbers. Its actually a very personal thing. You're part of the family at Round Table Realty... Exactly.

Thank you for everything.  We truly appreciate your hard work and dedication.  You were very supportive throughout the roller-coaster ride we experienced during the entire process of selling our home.  We made it to Daytona last night and as you can see from the attached photo we enjoyed a leisurely walk on the beach this morning.
We have shared with our friends how delighted we were in selecting Roundtable Realty to represent us in the sale of 8711 Sanchez Road.

Good morning,

 Just wanted to say thank you very much to both of you for all of your help over the long journey of selling that house.

I'll be reaching out to you in the near future when I’m ready to make my next purchase.

 Thank you again for all the help and guidance!

Our family really enjoyed working with Howard.  He was not only incredibly patient and helpful, but he made it feel like we were working with a friend instead of a business man.  He took time to answers our calls, concerns and questions.  I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable realtor.

“We had not shopped any real estate for almost 25 years and Angel was just who we needed to find an investment property that we could gently rehab and rent to a family member. She has valuable experience in the closing process and came up with creative solutions that several other agents had never even heard of. We ended up with a great value of a short sale with ownership involving a distant serviceman, the US Corp of Engineers and the US Army. She negotiated these complications with minimal problems, all the time keeping us well informed with texts, e-mails and timely phone calls. We never felt rushed or wondering where we were in the process. Angel is the best and a joy to work with.

This note is something I am so extremely happy to write. I have bought and sold countless homes over the years, but working with Howard has been a great experience. Due to the unfortunate situation of the sale this could have been a harrowing situation. I was forced to do a short sale of my property, last year 2011. I had heard all of the horror stories about how people are treated by lenders. How they are requested to submit forms and paperwork time and time again, just to be served with foreclosure papers 6 months later, because the customer was not taken seriously by the Lender. I can honestly say the Good Lord was at my back when I was referred to Howard by my Financial Adviser. I didn't have to deal with the lender at all. The whole process was handled by Roundtable Realty. Considering the complexity of this process it was an incredibly easy experience. I wish everyone going through this awful experience could have the opportunity of working with a this knowledgeable and capable group of people.I recommend Howard and his company to all who are interested in a truly incredible experience;. "Integrity, Compassion and Understanding" is their motto. Thank you so much Howard & Company

Hi, Im Maria and this is my husband James and we met Howard back in February of this year.  We decided to buy our first house and had a lot of trials going through it but Howard really fought for us.  we really appreciate it and ended up getting the best deal we could for our house.  It was the best experience with Howard.  He fought for us and got us the best deals and walked around every time we had a walkthrough and made sure evrything was perfect for us.  He saw things that we didn't see and we thank Howard for everything.  Thank you!

Andrea is Outstanding! My wife & I moved 3000 Miles from Washington to Florida. This alone is an incredible undertaking. Andrea made it all much easier. Prior to Andrea, We have had horrible Realtor experiences. Andrea changed all that. She was always careful to listen to our exact needs. She always went above & beyond to take care of our needs. Always makes time to answer emails & calls no matter how big or small. bottom line..She delivers! We were staying in an Extended Stay Hotel with our long cross country move & Andrea was able to negotiate getting us into our new home on a holiday weekend. If your a first time buyer or just someone who looking for a Realtor who actually isn't afraid to work & get the job done. Shes the one!

We recently purchased a townhouse in Florida with the help of Frank Whibley from Round Table Realty.  The process went smoothly with Frank's assistance.  Since we live in Connecticut, there were a lot of decisions that had to be made long distance.  Frank was there every step of the way.  He did several of the walk throughs for us and we couldn't have been more pleased with the results.  Frank kept us updated and we trusted him completely.  We highly recommend his services!

Kirk and Kerri

It was a great pleasure to work with Round Table. Howard was always available when I needed him and he was quick to research any new houses or areas. I really felt like Round Table worked with me as a team and I never felt like my opinions or thoughts were taken lightly. The actual purchase of my home was very smooth and any concerns I had a long the way were always addressed promptly. Overall the whole experience was very comfortable and I believe I got exactly the house I wanted. I would definitely recommend Round Table to my friends!

I loved working with Jen Pallai! Moving from out of state was stressful, but she made the finding and buying process smooth. As a first time home buyer I was nervous about this and Jen took her time to go through everything. We love our new home!

It was a pleasure working with Round Table on the short sale of my home. Keith and Howard's help was greatly appreciated throughout the difficult process. Their experience in the industry, and more specifically, their knowledge and sincerity in explaining what I should expect was comforting, as I knew I was in good hands. I should know, I used them to both buy and sell my home.

I'd like to take the time to thank you; Frank Whibley of Round Table Realty so very much for all of your help in the process of buying my house.  You have been the most patient, helpful and honest person I've had the pleasure to do business with!  There was not one time you were not there with me every step of the way from first contact to closing making sure that I understood everything and that everyone else was staying on task. You made the whole process very smooth and effortless!  Your commitment to making sure that I had what I needed was above par.  I sincerely thank you Frank Whibley for all you have done for me and highly recommend everyone buying a house to use you and Round Table Realty!

I just wanted to say thank you for helping us sell our rental home at 1061 Waterfall Drive.  I know you did not meet me but you helped my Dad, Ralph Currey, and my sister on the selling and buying of their homes. With my husband and I not being in Jacksonville, you helped us out tremendously by taking care of the property. We are grateful for the trustworthy, hardworking person you are and for selling our rental so quickly. Thank you for your help, we really appreciate it!  Sincerely,

Randi and Rob Hall

Howard was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in trying to help put us in the right home for us. He even went to bat for us to get more floor plan options for our dollar. In the end we ended up getting all the options we wanted for several thousands less than the appraised value.

John & Stacey Barranco

Frank was excellence in every way. We put a lot of demand and pressure on him and he meat them every time. It seem like that we were the only clients he had but we new that he had other clients. His input were spot on in all instances and there were hardly any problems unless we ourselves created them which he solve them right a way. He help out with suggestions of movers which was top notch, also if we needed to store our house hold items he gave us names of companies that we could look at. We were very glad that we choose Frank Whibley for our house selling and also buying a house. We cannot say enough about our good experience we had with him. We could go on and on about Frank but it would be just the same praise over and over again, so if anyone needs a realtor that I know then we will highly recommend him. Thanks.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Sunbeam, Jacksonville, FL.

My wife and I were extremely fortunate to have Howard Flaschen with RoundTable Realty as our buying agent. Howard expertly navigated us through every step, enabling us to find exactly what we were looking for, staying within our budget, and helping us to seal the deal with ease. With Howard, it was like we were visiting houses with a friend that just happened to really know his stuff about the Jacksonville, FL. real estate market. He always had our best interest in mind. Once we found the house we wanted, Howard worked magic with helping prepare the offer to make it as compelling as possible. It worked too, we got a steal of a deal on this condo. Thank you for all you have done Howard! I highly recommend you to anyone that is looking for a buyers agent.

Antonio Barroso

After having such a pleasant experience on the RoundTable website, we met up with Howard to see what Jacksonville had to offer us. We went from contract to closing on an FHA mortgage in just over a month! With Howard's past construction experience, he isn't afraid to point out houses with potentially troublesome floorplans, structural money pits, etc. He learns your personal tastes and individual needs to the point where he actually knows what you need better than you do. He's a true consultant of his trade, and not simply a yes-man with MLS access that are so common these days. RoundTable is a fresh, alternative re-imagining of an industry dominated by technologically-challenged hucksters.

I just closed on my first condo; Howard here at Round Table Realty helped me in finding a place. He helped me look at the various other properties. He was attentive in returning my phone calls and being supportive. [He] Helped me entirely through the process and had great recommendations on home inspectors... and just the whole process from start to finish. I dont think I would've gotten nearly as good of a property as I did had I not had Howard as my advocate. So, go ahead and choose him if you're looking for a Realtor in Jacksonville.

Ryan Purcell

It was amazing working with Round table Realty. We called Howard on one day and three days later we had a condo. Here, less than a month later we've closed. How much easier can it get? It was wonderful. I'm very happy & the place is fantastic. I'll enjoy it immensely once the move is over. You see mom had all of these qualifications, it had to be ground floor, screened lanai, it had to be 2 bedrooms, two baths....all this stuff and they found the perfect place that was the third place that they had looked at... It was perfect.

Frank is amazing! He helped us through all the process of buying our new home. We didn't have plenty of time and he always found the way to make our schedules work. He was always interested in our concerns and how to solve them. When he goes to show you a house, he will make you see all the little details and things that you would never see if he doesn't show them to you, giving you the confidence that you are in very good hands. He became part of the family, and thanks to him, we found our dream house. Thank you for being very patient and passionate about your job!!

My wife and I learned that we were relocating to Jacksonville in conjunction with a work promotion. We were initially looking at renting, but were not sold on the idea of signing a lease.  I needed to be in Jacksonville for a few days to do some preliminary business and we decided to look at some houses on the market to see what was available. We met Frank in the morning and, together,  toured many houses over the next couple of days. We were immediately impressed with his flexibility and willingness to help us explore possible homes and neighborhoods.  Ironically, after all the homes we saw, the second house we looked at was the perfect fit, and we decided to make an offer.  Frank was there to assist us every step of the way.  We were a bit nervous as we had never been through the process before, but Frank earned our trust and made sure that our best interest was always at the forefront of all that was done. Once the contract was signed, Frank helped us to close on our new home in less than 30 days (over the Christmas season), which was huge since we would have had to find other arrangements in Jacksonville if not for the early closing. Frank has kept in touch with us since we moved in to see how we’re doing and has always made us feel that he was there for us no matter what we needed, home related or otherwise. The best thing about Frank for us was that we knew he cared about us. To Frank we weren’t just important as a transaction, we were important as people, and that meant a lot.

The Moore's

Working with Frank was a pleasure.  He accommodated house hunting around my limited time while visiting the Jacksonville area and scheduled as many houses to view as possible.  After the first time out he got an understanding of what I was looking for and made suggestions on houses based on my comments. Being new to the area, Frank showed me to some nice neighborhoods and I appreciated his honest candor. His patience paid off and we found exactly what I was looking for.   

Jennifer Walthers

We had moved across country to Oregon and were selling our home in Jacksonville. All of our concerns about managing a house 3000 miles away were eased by our Realtor. Keith Francis with Round Table Realty looked after our house like it was his own. When a storm downed a large tree limb in the yard prior to a home inspection, he had it quickly removed and at a reasonable price. When the eventual buyer’s mortgage company was having problems completing the sale, Keith went above a beyond, taking the lead and working with their lender to move the sale forward. Thanks Keith, for making the selling of a long distance home much easier than we thought it would be.

The Parnells

Liza is one of the best realtor I have ever worked with. She is very consultative, knowledgeable- knows the market very well and a very pleasant lady to work with. What impressed me the most is her desire to understand your needs, budget and help you make the right decision. It’s surprising that you don’t find such high quality realtor like Liza these days. I had no clue about Jacksonville market and wasn’t sure where and how to invest in a new place. I engaged Liza’s service and from there on my effort to find the right property was a great experience. She guided me , provided a lot of information about the market with lot of facts that helped me narrow down great properties and negotiated a great property for me. I was able to accomplish all this sitting in CT. I will strongly recommend that you should engage Liza’s service and I can assure you that you will find no better and thorough professional than Liza. I will engage her service in the future for sure.

This was my 2nd time purchasing a home so I am a little familiar with how the process works, however, Christian made this time a breeze! He knows the area well, stayed in constant communication with me, answered all questions, referred me to a great Loan Officer & Home Inspector. Overall great experience! I will definitely refer him to others looking for a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Green Cove Springs, FL.

Andrea was exceptionally helpful in finding the right home that met my needs and was in the price range I was looking for. We only had to view a couple homes before she knew exactly what I was looking for and helped me find the perfect place. She worked with me through all the financing to get the loan I needed and made sure everything was done on time and in a prompt fashion.

I have recommended her to multiple friends and family, all of which have bought homes with her help and none were disappointed.

If you are looking for the perfect Realtor to help with your buying or selling needs you should look no further than Andrea. She will do everything in her power to help you and get through the process with you with a smile on her face and proactive updates on all your needs and wishes.

Heather and Tom Mohlman

We met Keith maybe three months ago if that long; we didn't know what we wanted to do. Whether or not we wanted to keep the home, or if we wanted to rent the home, or sell the home. The thing that impressed us about Keith was the fact that he was open, he shared so much information with us regardless is we were going to go with him to sell the home or not. He gave me homework to do, whether he realized it or not and once I saw his work on the photography of other sites and what he was able to do with our home it made me want to come to him and buy our home from him again, as nice as he made it look. The process was perfect, I dont think I could've written a script to make it any better. another thing I just thought of that we liked about Keith, and we met with a few other agents, [was that] Keith doesn't get in the way. He lets us drive and then takes over based on where we want to go and we have friends that are in the same situation that we are. They're selling and they're buying at the same time and we would tell them, "Keith is doing this," and they are like, "Well who is Keith because our agent isn't doing this and maybe we need to do that," so hopefully I'll be able to send them your way when their contract is over with. He wasn't pushy like when you go to a used car lot where you feel like they're trying to make their numbers as opposed to making you happy. We felt like we got that personalized and individual service that we needed.

The Washington Family

This was our second time working with Howard. He's the only agent we will ever use. Howard, unlike many realtors you will come across, is in it for all the right reasons. He talks the talk AND walks the walk! He sold our first house and was there every step for the build of our second home. For us,  the thing that puts Howard above everyone else is he makes it personal. Its never about business for him. What agent invites you to his home for a cookout? When we did have an issue with the builder, Howard always made sure that it was a painless situation that we all dealt with together. It was never a buyer/builder problem, Howard made sure he was "in the know" at all times and made sure that his customers were always satisfied with the result. He promptly attends all meetings and makes sure his clients have a clear understanding of each process during the build. Our experience with Howard can simply be summed up using Round Table's motto, "people before property." And he truly stands by this. Thank you Howard! Couldn't have and wouldn't have done it without you!

Lily & Brandon Wingfield

In 20 plus years in real estate, it is a rare but gratifying occasion when you meet a professional with unabashed client interest (his own client) but firm and friendly negotiation. You have these qualities and they will serve you well.

Frank was a great Real Estate Agent to work with long distance.  I had been searching via the web for properties that I might be able to purchase for my retirement home, and he was there for every call and concern I had. He made my needs a priority and went over to videotape every room of the condo I was interested in and emailed me immediately to view. He also was extremely proactive in getting the deal closed once I had found the one I wanted and made the transaction process so easy.  I would highly recommend Frank and I personally will be using his services in the future.  One happy and satisfied customer-- Linda

I have known Howard for about 10 years, and in that time, I have witnessed his passion and enthusiasm for his work, and never more so than when he co-founded Roundtable Realty. So, when my husband and I decided that we were ready to begin the search for a new home, Howard was the obvious choice for our realtor. Beyond our personal relationship, we trusted his experience and knowledge of the Jacksonville real estate market, and he did not let us down. Our search for a new home began over a year before we actually found the house that we ended up purchasing, and Howard was incredibly patient, letting us search at our own pace, but also available to us every step of the way. Any time I had a question, he returned my call/ email almost immediately (even if it was 10pm on Sunday night, or he was on vacation). He went out of his way to make the transaction as stress-free and convenient as possible, bringing documents to our home in the evening for us to sign. He was an advocate for us while we negotiated the deal on the home that we purchased (which was a foreclosure) and was extremely knowledgeable on the process of purchasing a short sale/ foreclosure offering great insight. He has also gone above and beyond for us to help get our previous home listed as a rental. I can't say enough about what a great experience we had working with him! Thanks so much, Howard. We love our new home!

We would like to thank Howard Flaschen for his impeccable service. His background in real estate as well as building construction puts him many notches above the average realtor. He was ALWAYS very responsive to calls, emails, and texts. He made himself extremely available (which helped us so much because of our hectic schedules). Howard's fast work and expert advice enabled us to win the bid on the house of our dreams. We can not thank him enough. I would recommend him to any one looking for an honest, hard working and knowledgeable realtor. Thanks again Howard!

So...we're getting settled in our new home. It doesn't look like a storage unit threw up in it anymore!! 
We are loving living in Julington creek, we have awesome neighbors and love our home....even starting on some redecorating!!
THANKS A TON....if we had it to do again, we would have help from Round Table Realty and Howard Flaschen absolutely!! It was amazing to have a realtor that was more interested in the perfect house for us, rather than selling a house!!!!

James and Marie Bound

OK everybody.... I found the BEST real estate agent in the area! Much respect to Howard Flaschen from Round Table Realty and he is da bomb! I am LOVING Jacksonville so far. Got a lot accomplished and looking forward to being a Floridian!!

We couldn't have asked for a more reliable, responsive and proactive Realtor! Frank Whibley went above and beyond what we had ever imagined a great Realtor to be. The only thing he didn't do was pay for our house! Although we bought our house from over 600 miles away, we never once felt like we missed a thing thanks to Frank's hard work and dedication, which included pictures, videos, information derived from extensive research, his unbiased and honest opinion, responding within minutes to our emails/texts, working late at night (many nights) to help us find the right place, and even buying us a GE Personal Security Alarm System Kit for our house because we closed a month before moving in. The list can go on and on and on, but you'll just have to make him your Realtor to find out for yourself just what "People before property" really means! Thanks Frank!

"Btw- On a side note, Your agent Howard truly is the best around, he is the Rock star of Realtors! –
You guys are very lucky to have him on your team! We are always happy when we work with Howard and every sales agent will tell you the same thing- he will always fight for his clients but never in an argumentative way, he is fair, reasonable and very professional- an all-around asset for all parties involved!
He has a great knack to make us want to say yes to all of his requests, I suppose is the best way to describe it"

Working with Round Table Realty and Howard has been.... almost fun. He's made it as painless as a first time homebuying experience can be. He was there to answer our questions anytime, from 7 o'clock in the morning to when my fiancee would text him with an urgent question at 11:30 at night. Today we're closing and he actually caught a mistake on the closing papers which saved us about $250. When we're ready to rent our current house or we're ready to upgrade to a new house we'll definitely look up Howard and Round Table Realty.

Frank,

I just want to thank you for all you did during this process - starting with speaking to my sister & me about the title aspects - to - being there for me every step of the way.  Your knowledge & advice was so helpful.

Buying a home is a very emotional, time consuming, and strenuous process.  One that can happen in a few short months or one that can take years.   Over three years ago, my wife and I made the decision to make Ponte Vedra our home.  We lived in Pennslyvania and had the luxury of time.  I initially worked with multiple agents all concerned about selling a house versus understanding the needs of the client.   The entire time I was looking, I kept receiving very detailed information about my searches and home types based on technology driven from a very good company, Round Table Reality,  But above all , it was driven by an agent that showed integrity and persistence.  I then made a transformative decision,  I called the agent Frank Whibley.   From the moment I talked with Frank until this day, we hit if off. 

Frank possesses a rare trait that more of us should have. He puts needs of others ahead of his own. 
That was apparent in the three year process we went through.  Frank was very patient with us and committed in ensuring that we found the right home. He never pushed, never gave up and stuck with the task at hand. Well it finally paid off, we closed in January and found that house of our dreams. 

But wait the service did not end there.  We still reside in Pa and the house needed a lot of items handled from setting up services to landscaping.  Frank assisted in all of this. He volunteered to help in anyway possible.  He did not just take the commission and go.  He really cared and wanted it to be as seamless as possible. 

Tammy and I have made a friend for life and I really mean that.  Frank is very ethical and transparent.  Above all, he is not afraid to tell you he doesn't know something,  because he will always finds the answer. He fights for his clients and makes sure that his word is kept.  I cannot think of a better agent.  My wife and I have moved all over the world and have purchased numerous homes. Never  have a come across a  man like Frank. 

So here is the simple statement: If you want an agent that will put your interests above his own, fight for you when needed, stay with you after the sell and not close and go. There is only one answer , Frank Whibley.

Attention all service members, Certified Distressed Property Expert!!! CDPE- never thought when I was buying my first home in 2006 that I would need one. It’s amazing what can happen in a single tour of duty. With transfer season fast approaching and my home upside down by 60% things were not looking good. Service members know when it’s time to move to your next station Uncle Sam is not interested in your problems. Enter Howard Flaschen, (Real Estate Super Hero) and Keith Francis, (Photography Super Genius). They took me step by step through the process from start to finish, making this experience more comfortable and handled my short sale with a positive attitude and unprecedented support. My core values are Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty. Howard and Keith displayed the same core values when working with me, (they did most of the work) to bring a less than desirable situation to a recoverable end. During this long 6 month journey of ups and downs, Howard kept me up-to-date on the whole process no matter where I was deployed. Roundtable Realty is squared away! Thank you both very much for all that you did.

Justin Bray

We wanted to say thank you to Howard and the Round Table crew for making this process less stressful than it couldv've been.  Thank you Mattamy.  We're excited to get into our house.  Very excited.  We finally have our keys.  thank you Round Table Realty.  Thank you Howard.  We're excited to tell everyone else aboutcha, so... Anybody need a home, anybody, anybody?  :)

I would like to thank Howard Flaschen & Roundtable Realty for really
being there for us when we needed it.  It was extremely refreshing to
find that they were interested in not just making money, but truly
looking to be a help.  We had come to a place where we were faced with
the possibility of having to short-sell and lose our home or go with
an offer our lender was making us.  It was an easy case to be made to
sell and walk away from our home.  It would have been additional
business for Roundtable, and I'm sure we would have been successful.
However, Howard was more worried about us individually and what was
best for our family.  He spend a lot of time talking with us about our
options and answering all of our questions.  We are so happy that we
talked to him, and would absolutely recommend Roundtable to any of our
friends and family.  They are good people with great integrity that
are looking to help their neighbors and not just their bottom line.

Warm regards,
Dave Rich

My name is Linda Sepulveda and I was referred to Round Table Realty by the satisfied homebuyer Julie Benedeti. Julie recommended Frank Whibley from Round Table because of his outstanding service!

From the moment I met Frank Whibley I was impressed! His knowledgeable, polite, and professional mannerism could not be matched! Frank went above and beyond throughout the whole process of looking and purchasing a home. I trusted Franks input, suggestions, and advice regarding any property we came across.  He even designed my own portal on the Round Table Realty to view homes of my preference. The Round Table Realty website is phenomenal!

I consider Frank Whibley to be one of the most wonderful, honorable, and genuine people that I have ever met in my lifetime! I feel very fortunate to have had him as a realtor! I recommend Frank to anyone that I come across as a “potential” home buyer.

My experience with your realtor Frank Whibley is something that I will always remember! Due to unforeseen circumstances, my home purchase did not go through but, Frank’s performance cannot be overlooked!

I would like to commend Frank Whibley for his wonderful service to me and Round Table Realty for the opportunity to purchase a home. In the future I will return to Round Table Realty and request Frank Whibley as my realtor, because he is the BEST! Please consider Frank Whibley as outstanding realtor of the month and year! He deserves many rewards for his outstanding service!

 Thank you for your time!

 Sincerely,

 Linda Sepulveda

I recently had to do a short sale on my condo. In the beginning, not knowing anything about the process of it I was overwhelmed and stressed out. Howard was there for me from start to finish (24/7) always willing to help me with any questions or problems that I ran into along the way. Keith did an awesome job with the photography of my condo. When I looked at my listing on their site I couldn't believe how much better the photos were compared to some that I've seen on other real estate sites. I had offers after the first 24 hours of it being listed thanks to their knowledge and professionalism. I could tell that they love what they do and take alot of pride in it. I will be using round table realty in the future, and I will definetly recommend them to all my friends. Thanks for the great experience!!!

Howard cares more about his clients than he does about the sale. He proved that to us over and over again, showing us the value in he properties we viewed, as well as the issues we might encounter with some others. He also knows so many other realtors in town, which made our buying experience was incredibly relaxed. He helped us get funding, explained ever step of closing to us, and even showed up with gifts at our new house. We never could have purchased a home without him!

After trying out two agents who relied solely on automated MLS email notifications to generate listings for us, we were no better off after five months of searching than when we'd started. Over this period we watched the availability of properties that met our criteria shrink and prices rise as investors and others were creating a shortage. By the time we could check our emails and contact the agent to secure a showing on a hopeful property, the word back way too often was, "it's already under contract", and then, our hope daunted. Tired of that emotional roller coaster, we knew we needed someone more proactive to be in the game if we were ever going to secure a home. Round Table was recommended by a colleague, and we were directed to Frank. Things changed immediately. Frank understood the challenges we presented him, and relentlessly went to work to meet them. Several times we changed our criteria as we better understood the area and the market, and Frank was receptive and quick to shift gears and present new options. After having lost out in two bidding wars, we knew hours mattered. No longer interested in engaging in multiple-offer situations, we told Frank we needed to be first, far enough ahead of competition to obtain an exclusive offer. His habit of texting and calling us to ensure we saw listings he'd sent over, often "hot" properties, is one of the reasons we have our home today. Frank literally ditched his supper to get us an immediate showing on one such property, within minutes of sending us a text and obtaining our green light. That house is now our home. After nine months, thanks to Frank's patience, diligence, and hard work, our search was finally over.

Howard we got it! I am so relieved!!!!!!!!!!!! You are the best and I again appreciate your assistance. I will keep in touch with you......

Not only did Frank help me purchase my home in Mandarin, he also helped me sell it.  When I told him I was interested in selling my place he came out and provided me with information on what had sold in my area.  He came up with a game plan on how we could sell my house quickly and the first day it went up for sale we had buyers interested.  Frank kept me informed every step of the way.   The process was great and I appreciated all of Frank’s help.
