Just wanted to thank you for probably the 100th time for the great job you did as our real estate agent in the sale of our house on Riverside Dr.
As you know, this was a "divorce" sale and my ex-partner and myself had previously listed the property with another agent (and realty firm) with almost no results. However, after turning this sale over to you, it resulted in a very satisfying sale of our home.
Your advocacy of our wonderful home to other agents and high level of advertisement throughout the listing kept our home very visible throughout a very difficult market. Also, as a retired attorney, I was very impressed with your level of knowledge,competence and professionalism that you showed in preparing and reviewing the PAGES of legal documents associated with the sale of any property.
But whereas, frankly, I expected the above from almost any prefessional agent, I felt you really stood out with your very patient, calm, helpful attitude in guiding my ex partner and myself through this very difficult time. It was your ability to help mediate the many issues of selling our home that, I believe, had a great deal to do with it's successful sale for a fair price.
Additionally, I was also extremely impressed with your helpfulness, knowledge and recommendations of the many extraneous repair/cleaning tradespersons that we needed to hire to get our property into as good a condition as possible soas to make it an attractive listing. Every person/agency you recommended was very competent, reliable and reasonably priced.
So Kudos girl!...Feel free to give my name/number anytime as a reference.
It was a pleasure working with Debra Johnson at Prudential Realty,
who handled the sale of our house on the Russian River.
We interviewed four agents before choosing Debra for her positive
attitude, high energy, and impressive sales record. She helped us
with every step,
taking photographs for the listing, establishing priorities for how to
show the property, keeping us informed on market trends, explaining
procedures. She sold the property quickly in a declining market. She
answered her phone, took all of our concerns seriously, communicated
and worked hard in adverse conditions without losing her sense of
humor. We recommend her highly.
We used every one of the gifts you gave us the first night in our new home. We had the salmon for appetizer-Jeff barbecued and wore the apron, he ran out of propane so he put the chicken in the oven...oven mitten-we used the absolute beautiful platter for cookies and the Piece de resistance was the champagne glasses filled with bubbly which Ryan and I enjoyed in the hot tub (a picture says a thousand words!)
Your gifts to us were perfect and we thanks you. However, the greatest gift of all is our perfect home. Thank you for finding it for us.
This is to express to you our great appreciation of the wonderful work that you did for us, not only in selling the bookstore and frame shop/gallery, but also in your remarkable efforts in selling the Monte Rio property.
Both of the businesses had been listed for over 2 years with 2 other local realtors without success. We listed them with you in January 2005 and within months both were sold! You were able to understand the special nature of the businesses and the needs of any prospective buyers. It is obvious that you have a very complete and detailed knowledge of the business climate of the Russian River area.
We were really astonished that you were able to sell our Monte Rio house within 1 day at an unbelievable price.
Many thanks again for your great help. We have and will continue to recommend your services to anyone who might be in the market for commercial or residential properties.
With kindest personal regards.
