After 15 years of living for 8 mths/yr in Florida, it became obvious to my wife & I that it was time to sell our NJ home. After 25 years of living there it was not an easy decision but because of family matters (Esther mother’s illness), we would not even be able to spend our normal 4 mths/yr in NJ as we had been doing.
Once we decided to sell, I intensively researched and asked friends for recommendations for top notch real estate agents – we came up with 5 agents who represented the major realtor companies that have a reasonable focus on South Orange.
We interviewed all 5 and without a question YOU, Jane, came out ahead of all of them. WHY? …
(1) YOU were the only one who appreciated our home and its potential value to possible buyers, and
(2) in a “weird” market all the others recommended low prices, YOU pegged not only an appropriate price but one that would be acceptable to us (not easy), and
(3) YOU worked closely with us to “stage” the house for the best showings (although we thought we did well?), and
(4) YOU prepared the best marketing materials (brochures, pictures & verbage) and marketed our home to just the right audience, and
(5) YOU promised us results!
Resultingly, you outdid all your promises and your efforts were successfully exceptional.
In the TOUGHest of markets, you were able to sell our home within 4 months at almost 100% of our original asking price – WOW! As an aside, you even found a cash buyer (no mortgage, appraisal needed) – from what I hear – that’s UNIQUE.
Your follow-up from contract to closing was pristine and made our lives real simple.
Jane, please feel free to use this letter and us as a STRONG RECOMMENDATION as to your work, effort and ethics!
