We used Monina to help us purchase our first home. Although we were very excited to buy a home, we had no idea where to start or even exactly what we were looking for. Monina was extremely helpful with first helping us to understand our priorities in the home search. She was very patient as we had many questions and sometimes struggled to make decisions. Knowing that she had a lot of experience, and a high level of expertise gave us confidence that she would not let us choose a home that would not suit our needs. Now we have been living in our home for 8 months and are so happy to be somewhere that is exactly what we hoped for. We are very grateful for Monina’s expertise and guidance and will happily recommend her to our family and friends!
Monina was wonderful to work with! She answered all of our questions and was on top of everything throughout the whole process. I am so happy to have had this buying experience with her! Thank you, Monina!
I had a job transfer out of state and had to move on our house quickly. Monina did a great job advising us on getting the house ready for sale and putting the house on the market. It sold in two weeks. We could not have asked for more.
We highly recommend Monina Swick! As relocation clients, we were impressed with her vast knowledge of the central PA area. She listened to our needs and found us several homes to look at that met our criteria all within our short window of time. She was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and needs and a true professional!

I highly recommend working with Monina! She is extremely hardworking and knowledgeable and will find you your dream home!
Monina was in our corner every step of the way. She helped us find the perfect home for our family in a great neighborhood. On top of that, she was able to get the price down and some help from the sellers which really sweetened the deal. We couldn't have been happier with all of the help and guidance we received from Monina along the way, and we would definitely work with her again in the future.
Monina was amazing. She was in our corner every step of the way and helped us find a truly special home for our family in the perfect neighborhood. More than that, she was always honest with us which we really appreciated. Whether we had questions about particular neighborhoods or even future resale value, she never sugar coated it. We will definitely work with Monina the next time around!
I was very lucky to find Monina and have her as my realtor. 100% professional and made my first home buying process a breeze. I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a home. Thanks again Monina!
Working with Monina was great. She knows her craft well. Provides good guidance and follows through. We put our house on the market on a Friday and had 3 offers 2 days later. We would definitely recommend Monina.
Monina helped my wife and I sell our townhouse in Palmyra, PA. Monina knows the local real estate market very well. Not only did she make sure our home was perfect even before we put it on the market, she discussed with us the timeframes that townhouses would be most likely to sell in the area. Within a day of putting our house on the market, we received 4-5 showing requests per day, and ended up with an offer within 3 weeks after putting our home for sale. Given that when we purchased our home, it was on the market for 7 months, this was fantastic! We couldn't have done it without Monina. Monina's cordial attitude in combination with her knowledge of the real market makes her the best realtor we have had the pleasure of working with!
We had Monina as our real estate professional for our move from Maryland to Hummelstown, Pa. We really can’t say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging but working with Monina made it as painless and straightforward as possible, even when it was not. She guided us every step of the way from start to finish. It was a crazy ride, but we were able to buy a beautiful home in our price range and even in the neighborhood we loved the best! We definitely could not have done this without Monina, and she really took care of us well during the negotiation, closing, and even after closing. We hope that we will be in this home for many years to come, but when it is time to move again, we will definitely call Monina! We highly recommend Monina!
Monina has been great to work with. She patiently stayed in touch with us we worked to get our home ready for market. She coached and advised us well all throughout the process. A true professional!

Monina was great to work with. She gave us great market insight and was very responsive. We listed our house on a Friday and had 3 offers after 7 showings in 2 days. We would recommend Monina to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I wanted to share my personal experience with everyone so they understand how GREAT Monina is. I had been looking at houses for a few months as a first time home buyer with no experience. I really didn't understand the steps I needed to take in order to start the process of looking for a new home. From day one of requesting Monina on Zillow, she was very friendly and honest with me. She explained, multiple times, how each step worked so there were no surprises when the time came to put in an offer. She even set me up with Margie, who she works with to pre-approve you for a loan. Margie was fantastic and would even answer my calls on weekends to write me letters of pre-approval. Monina also took the time to call me, email me, and show me many homes before I chose to sign a contract with her. There was absolutely no pressure when working with Monina. She was even late to her own vacation in order to show me a home because she said she couldn't live with herself if I missed out on my dream home! Monina is a very dedicated Realtor who goes above and beyond for her clients. She always has a smile on and is very pleasant to work with. If you're a first-time home buyer or just looking for a personable Realtor, I would highly recommend working with Monina.
We worked with Monina and secured a very unique property. The ONLY reason we have this house today is because of Monina's hard work. She presented our contract (which was one of many) in person and added a few personal touches that I am convinced won over the sellers. She is always professional and is an advocate for her clients. She has an excellent ability to read people which helps when negotiating. This is our 4th real estate purchase and by far our easiest. Thanks Monina!!
Monina was wonderful! She not only was very knowledgeable about the area we were interested to live but also very patient and approachable without being overbearing. Monina understood our needs and was very flexible with scheduling appointments at a very short notice ( i.e. 30 minutes notice). We have now lived in our home for 3 months and love it and the neighborhood.
We enjoyed working with Monina , she helped us find the perfect house for us that we now call home. I have a tight working schedule and Monina was great at working around it. Sometimes she only had less than 2 hours notice to get us an appointment. We felt she really listened to us and understood our needs.
We have had several real estate transactions in the past but our recent purchase of a home with Monina was by far the smoothest we have ever had with a realtor. We felt that Monina went above and beyond, which resulted in our being able to find the home we wanted, negotiate for the best price, and follow through with every detail necessary to close in the shortest possible time.
Monina exceeded our expectations with regard to negotiating, communication and responsiveness to our needs and circumstances. We were moving from out of state, and she was able to deal with that situation flawlessly. On several occasions we called or emailed her we were coming to Pennsylvania to look at properties of interest to us. She patiently scheduled showings each time, occasionally arranging for us to return to a property for a second look. When we decided to make an offer, she was able to broker that offer with the seller, communicating with us by phone continuously throughout the weekend until we were satisfied. When we were ready to set up inspections and follow-up viewing, she offered guidance and expedited the scheduling of these events. When the home inspection revealed some concerns and issues, she did not hesitate to bring these to the seller and follow through to see that the items were corrected prior to closing. Per our request our closing was scheduled at the earliest possible date and Monina worked tirelessly to keep the closing on schedule in spite of the unexpected issues. That being said, at no time did we feel pressured by her to continue with the purchase if we were not completely satisfied. We have bought and sold several homes, and this was by far the smoothest experience we have ever had with any real estate broker. And while we felt Monina acted in a most professional manner at all times, we were also struck by how completely comfortable and at ease we felt with her throughout the process.
