Client Testimonials

“Excellent, and Very Satisfied!” From the first time I called their office, I was very comfortable with Attorney Occena. I was going through an extremely stressful situation, for which Attorney Occena and his compassionate staff helped me EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. I would recommend them to my friends and family, as they exceeding all my expectations.


I was very satisfied for many reasons and not just because my case outcome worked out so well for me.  Mr. Occena was constantly fighting for me from beginning to end, on top of everything.  You guys were amazing!  Constant contact and follow ups to my questions and concerns were immediately dealt with.  Friendly, courteous, just a real comfort knowing you guys were giving 100% for me.

Client Testimonials

“I had the distinct pleasure of working with Tayla Andre just recently on a sale of a two-family home. I was the listing agent and Tayla was the buyer’s agent. Tayla was very professional and very easy to work with during the entire sale process. Tayla has very good interpersonal skills and was great at keeping in touch throughout the sale. Tayla truly had her buyers best interest as a priority at all times. I have been selling homes for 14+ years and Tayla Andre was definitely one of the better realtors that I have had the pleasure of working with.”

“Thumbprint Realty really helped me and my roommates out to make sure we found the right place for us. They did an awesome job finding places that matched our criteria and was always right on time and on top of things. He was able to show us places that we would definitely not have been able to find on our own. I highly recommend Thumbprint Realty for your moving needs.”

J. Ana

“Nathan helped us from the moment we decided we wanted to be homeowners. We were not well informed about the process, the risks, benefits, etc. involved. One step at a time we got there. Nate was patient, detail-oriented, and always looked for answers even when he didn’t have them. Buying a home is definitely a process that takes time and dedication and one of the most serious commitments you will ever make. It’s important that whoever you have as your agent that they always have your interests come first. I can say undoubtedly that Nathan has proven exactly that and I would recommend him to anyone, especially those that have never gone through this before.”
