Welcome to Ruby Rose Realty
Here are a few good reasons to choose Ruby Rose Realty:
We have finally settled down in our new home in Florida. I just wanted to thank you for all your help in all our real estate transactions. Today it is very very rare to find any business person that you feel comfortable doing business with but, you are that person. We just wanted to say thanks for helping us with the sale of our home and your straight forward & honest way you handle yourself. We feel very proud to recommend you to our friends and family for any future real estate transactions.
Diane Capetola & Dave Frost
I can not express enough the outstanding and caring service you provided. Not only did I have 1 Estate but 2 at the same time. SOLD within a weeks time! I can not say enough about you. You helped me and supported me through a very difficult time, on a personal level as well as a professional level.
You are the BEST!
I wanted to thank you for the professional service and guidance you provided during the sale of my home of 22 years. It was a very difficult time and I truly appreciate your patience, understanding, and the wealth of knowledge and contacts you provided in various areas that were needed in order for me to get things done and make the sale go as smooth as possible.
I would not hesitate to recommend you and Ruby Rose Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I look forward to working with you again; hopefully in the not so distant future.
Just wanted to thank you for the support for our family during a very stressful time in our lives. Your friendship, sweet nature and trust was just what we needed to get us through. You made the sale of our parents’ home so much easier for us to bare. It was comforting to know there are good people that respect the love of the family home and the sentimental value we held so dear. Thank you Olla for your professionalism and caring nature.
Bob and Sheryl Cupo and Family
After much thought and careful consideration, we chose Ruby Rose Realty to sell our home. Dedicated, reliable, caring and honest are just a few words that come to mind when describing our experience with Olla. Olla’s reputation precedes her, she is fiercely loyal to her clients and she is a consummate professional who works tirelessly to get you the absolute best results possible. Olla was with us at every step of the way, educating us on the process and in turn, removing the anxiety from the equation. We entered into this process with high expectations given Olla’s expertise and prior track record.
After knowing her briefly, our confidence in Olla was confirmed and grew considerably. In short time, we knew we had done the “right thing” in choosing her as our realtor. We came to know without reservation, that our endeavor would end with positive results in spite of the market conditions or anything else for that matter. We just didn’t expect it to happen so quickly! Olla in fact, exceeded our “best-case” scenario and expectations. Within a month of listing, we sold our home at nearly the asking price and we closed our deal as scheduled without incident or delay. That being said, our family was even more impressed and comforted by the way Olla treated us throughout the process with genuine kindness, fairness, dignity and respect.
Olla loves what she does for a living and it was obvious to us, that she is in this business for all the right reasons. From the very start, we placed our trust in Olla’s ability to guide us in this journey. In a matter of just a few months, we were able to turn the page and move on to the next phase which will now enable us to realize our retirement goals sooner than we have expected. Olla brings credibility to her profession and she is a credit to the community of North Haledon as well. Olla’s work ethic, professionalism, knowledge and experience sets her “head and shoulders” above the rest. If you are selling your home, take the emotion out your decisions and choose someone you can trust and have confidence in. Choose someone who understands your needs and represents your best interests. Be flexible, open-minded and choose someone who will work with you to get the best possible results. Choose someone who is dedicated, experienced and someone who will treat you with the fairness, dignity and respect that you deserve. For us, Olla is this person and we will never forget the positive experience we had in selling our home because of her. Olla lives up to the billing and we recommend her without hesitation. Working with Olla turned out to be a true blessing for us, we no longer consider her our realtor, she has become a trusted friend to our family.
Our sincerest appreciation,
Carrie, Lenny & Angie
“How does one seamlessly walk away from a home of 18 years with encouragement and guidance towards new beginnings?! THAT was our experience with Olla. Her professionalism, wisdom, motivation and CARE were pronounced and evident in EVERY SINGLE interaction we encountered. . . . . she mastered making us feel as though we were her ONLY clients with her undivided attention. Olla was honest, transparent, and dedicated to selling our home. . . and not only did she sell our home, but she far exceeded our expectation of fiscal return and smooth transitions. We are incredibly grateful to Olla’s dedication to our family and look forward to many many years of relationship. Thank you Olla, from the bottom of our hearts.
~Mark and Michele Boonstra”
Thank you very much for your professional and extremely knowledgeable help in selling my mother’s house. Your understanding of North Haledon homes is remarkable. My wife and I do not live in town, and we did not know any realtors in the area. You were recommended by word of mouth. Upon our first meeting, we were immediately put at ease. You saw the potential in this “vintage” home. It was apparent that you truly loved your town and knew its worth. We liked that you recommended the local businesses and services to assist us along the way.
The process of selling the house went extremely well. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.
You are a wonderful person who truly cares about others. Thank you for all your help.
Rich and Pat Rager
Paul and I would like to thank you for your efforts in selling our home in Hawthorne.
We never thought this experience would be so seamless and because of your experience and personal touch it happened in six days.
Your positive attitude and availability to us made this journey in our lives easier than we thought. We would highly recommend you and should the need arise use your services in the future.
Stephanie, Paul and Mackenzie Adler
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for the wonderful job that you did in selling our home. Your knowledge of the real estate market in North Haledon was excellent.
Your professionalism, honesty and dedication during a very stressful time was very much appreciated.
We would gladly recommend your services to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in North Haledon or the surrounding area.
Wishing you and yours all the best!
Olga Barbara and family
As first time homeowners, we had many reservations. The process can be daunting and tedious, but Olla helped us through each step with her great knowledge of houses, the market and our needs.
We very much appreciated Olla’s candor and honesty when looking at homes. She did not allow us to settle on any property, but instead encouraged us to wait for the perfect home for us, and then worked aggressively to secure it. We learned that some of Olla’s most helpful qualities, beyond her abilities as a broker, were her incredibly positive outlook and great energy, which we found comforting when things got challenging. Olla works her hardest to get her client what is needed, in a professional manner, and with lines of communication consistently open.
We do not only consider her as a person who we had a professional business relationship with, but as a friend. We would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends, especially those who are buying a home for the first time!
Christine and Patrick
We can't thank you enough for all your guidance and professionalism
during the sale of our house. As you know, it was not a decision we made
lightly and you were so compassionate through it all. I can honestly
say, I don't think we could have done it with out you and your endless
kindness. Not only were you always genuine in your actions, you were so
knowledgable and always in control. It is clear that you take pride in
your work and handle your business with the utmost of etiquette. It was
evident from the onset; we were in good hands.
I don't think there is another realtor out there that knows North
Haledon the way you do! Thank you again for making us feel more like
family than clients throughout the entire sale of our home.
Marc & Tina Rowe
We wanted to thank you for representing us on the sale of our existing home in North Haledon and the purchase of our dream home in Franklin Lakes. We believe that your experience, attention to detail and perseverance were absolutely the key factors in getting the both deals done. Without you, I am not sure we would be in our new home, and receiving multiple offers and selling our existing home in under a week was amazing as well. Your knowledge of the market was critical in pricing the house and your marketing skills positioned the house in the best light.
We appreciated the fact that you were always available to us and always, went above and beyond, bringing in and coordinating various parties, to make sure things kept moving forward in a timely fashion and to unblock situations when they did arise. This was the 4th real estate transaction that you did for our family in the last several years including my mother’s townhouse in Wayne andmy brother’s house in North Haledon and we wouldn’t even consider buying or selling a property without your involvement.
We felt that you were on our team and always had our best interests in mind. We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone who is buying or selling a home in the area. We couldn’t imagine doing this without you behind us.
Gary and Marcella DiChiara
Thank you so much for all of your help selling my Dad’s house. You took on the challenge and it was so reassuring to leave everything in your capable hands. You handled everything perfectly and kept me informed every step of the way advising me what needed to be done, making suggestions on who to hire and weeding out offers until the right deal came along.
Your knowledge of North Haledon was definitely a plus. If it were not for you the closing would not have taken place when scheduled. I can honestly say you went way above and beyond the call of duty, especially getting the results of the water testing after 5 o’clock the night before the closing and on a holiday weekend.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home!
Susan Zawacki Mingione
My sincere appreciation for the professional and effective way in which you took on my home sale and made it one of the best and smoothest business transaction experiences of my life. The fact that the closing took place only two and a half months after getting our first offer just days after listing the house, says it all, thanks to your expertise in real estate coupled with your local market savvy. It was a pleasure, indeed, to work with you.
With kindest regards,
After almost 60 years at “176” I decided to make the move to New Hampshire to be close to my family.
Wow! Then I hit the jackpot! I met you and the rest is history. No one can believe how fast you sold the two houses for me. You are such a kind and caring person-always with my best interest at heart. I especially loved our visits and by the way, what a great cook you are!
Hope we can get together whenever I am in North Haledon.
Much Love to You,
I thought of emailing you a note of how honored I felt working with you. Buying a house through you was one of the best experiences to me in the business world.
The way you conducted yourself, help way beyond the call of duty and integrity you provided from beginning to the end of the transaction was truly unbelievable.
As a business man, when I lost hope in finding honest and Professional individuals to do the right thing, you came along and renewed my confidence that there are still people out there that desire to do the right thing.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with you
On behalf of my family and I, we would like to extend our deepest thanks to you regarding the recent sale of our home.
It was the first time we had ever sold a home and we were trying to find someone we could trust to guide us through the process. Your professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge of the market, as well as your sweet personality made for an extremely enjoyable as well as a profitable experience!
Thank you so much for everything. You are a lovely person and I highly recommend Ruby Rose Realty to anyone interested in buying or selling a home!
Brian, Julie, Brendan and Tyson
I write these words as I sit in my new backyard this Memorial Day weekend absorbing all the beauty around me. Your city girl can really get used to this pretty quickly!
I wanted to take advantage of the moment and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did during the purchase of this perfect home. As a first time homeowner I can't imagine having such a positive experience with anyone else but you. Your professionalism and extensive knowledge of the real estate market guided us seamlessly through the entire buying process. Your warmth and compassion embraced my family and understood our needs wholeheartedly. We will enjoy this home for many years to come and are forever grateful for meeting you !

From: Marco and Gina Aliano
We wanted to sincerely thank you for your assistance in the recent purchase of our home. Although we had not met prior to you showing us the home we purchased that was listed by your agency, your professionalism, knowledge and commitment to your clientele was immediately evident during our initial conversation. Your no-nonsense, honest approach allowed us to quickly gain our trust in you and feel confident that you would certainly provide us with the most sensible approach to securing the purchase of our home.
Right up until the date of closing, you kept in close contact with us both and provided constant feedback regarding the status of necessary approvals and paperwork to be completed.

"This was our first experience selling a house. Wow, what a shock! Couldn't imagine doing it without "our Olla". She was very knowledgeable and supportive through a trying time. We just love her and highly recommend her. Can't imagine someone else could have done anything more for us. We will miss talking to her regularly. She's a wonderful person and very personable.
All our best to you always,

Thank you for all of your help and guidance during the recent sale of our parent's home. As you came to know, this was more than just a business transaction to us, as this was our parent's home for the past 45 years. Your expertise, advice and friendship during the past few months helped make this a very smooth process with no "bumps"! Your guidance on how to market a home like ours and evaluate offers from buyers has proved to be the right approach. We are so glad that we chose your company to represent us!
What we found that separates you from other Realtors is your expert knowledge of real estate in the North Haledon area, along with a wonderful personal approach to your clients. Beginning with our initial conversation during our selection process, right through to the day of closing, we found you to be extremely knowledgeable, engaging and always trusted. It was those personal qualities that ultimately led us to choose Ruby Rose to represent our home.
Thank you for always making us feel that you had our best interests in mind. Your suggestions and guidance were much appreciated! Please know that if any of our friends or family are in need of a Realtor in your area, we will always recommend Ruby Rose Realty to them.
All the best,
Mike La Gatta

My husband and I had the recent pleasure of working with Ruby Rose
Realty in the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one. Suffice to say that anyone who's ever been through that process knows how challenging it can be on so many levels. Olla made the process so easy. Leveraging her deep industry experience and expertise, as well as her in-depth knowledge about the area, Olla was able to sell our home at a very fair price and find us our dream home.
Her professionalism, commitment to her clients needs, and willingness to go above and beyond every step of the way was so appreciated during this process. Her client service is truly unmatched by anyone!!! My husband and I cannot thank her enough for all that she did for us.
If you're thinking of buying or selling a home,I would recommend Ruby Rose Realty "hands down".

Olla Abbasi is first class all the way. It was such a pleasure working with her on the sale of our parents home. Our mother's language barrier was not an issue, Olla made her understand every step of the sale of the house. We highly recommend Olla to anyone who is buying or selling a house in our area.
Olla, you are the best realtor I ever met. Like I said, first class. You know like when you're on a trip and everything is taken care for you in first class, pampered. That’s how we felt in your hands. I’m glad you are in our lives, and you make North Haledon a better place to live in.

We want to thank you for finding us our dream home. Our goal was to close the deal and move in before the holidays and within two months - you helped us negotiate a great deal and we moved in time to enjoy Christmas!! We love the neighborhood and community and your personal service and commitment made the experience enjoyable. We have made a friend for life!

From: Rick and Maryann La Rosa
First I would like to thank Olla for her professionalism and tenacity. We recently put my mother in law's house up for sale and Olla stayed in touch with me keeping me updated, helping us when we had questions and taking charge when things needed to be addressed. She is a very caring, sincere person and a true sale’s professional and it shows through her success as a realtor. Olla came highly recommended to us and I’d like to personally recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home. In these tough economic times, when all you hear is how slow things are in the housing market, Olla will get it done, just take a look around North Haledon her signs are everywhere. Thanks again Olla, job well done!

From: Michael Mutter
Most of the time a customer is delighted when a vendor goes the extra mile. Olla Abbasi, runs the entire marathon for her clients and came in first place for me. During a time in which the real estate market began changing daily, Olla's knowledge and nimble skill kept abreast of the changes. She offered strategies which lead to a sale in a short period of time during an extremely challenging market. By the way, her strategy isn't, "reduce your price." She manages to connect with the right buyer at the right price. I am delighted with the young couple who purchased the home I was raised and grew up in, my parents would be equally as delighted. In my book there is no other realtor except, Olla Abbasi.
Olla, you are part of the family!
All my very best wishes for your continued success!

"As an attorney, I am keenly aware of the importance of attention and response to the needs of a client. I can only advice that you far exceeded the highest expectations --going "above and beyond " what was required at every level. Though this was a difficult sale, it was made abundantly easier thanks to your unfailing assistance. Your kindness, knowledge and extra effort made it a success-- for both parties. Thank-you so much for an exceptional job!"
Kathleen Murphy, Esq.
Thank you for all of your kind words, and thank you for helping me along with the sale, the in between, and the closing.
You are a lovely person, and it has been a pleasure working with you. I certainly do hope our paths cross again, and I will certainly stop in to say hello.
"We were so happy with the quality of service we received from Ruby Rose Realty while recently trying to sell our house. We had tried selling our house with a realtor from another company before finding Olla, and we wish that we had started with her! Olla was great with answering any and all of our questions, day or night. We always felt like we were being lead in the right direction by her honesty and truthfulness."
PJ and Ashley Dejong
"One word sums up my experience with Ruby Rose Realty and Olla.. Perfection! From the day we signed our listing agreement with Olla to sell our home, I knew we were in the right hands. Olla not only possesses superb knowledge of the current market and the most effective competitive strategies to market your home, but she maintains the utmost level of professionalism and class in every aspect of her delivery, both with clients and prospective buyers of your home. Olla’s humble demeanor and personable skills perfectly compliment her aggressive and “on it” work ethic that will get your house sold! Pete and I could not have been more thrilled with our experience with Olla and her representation on our behalf on the sale of our home. Olla’s confidence and guidance made this experience and transition in our lives memorable and eased our anxiety at such a crucial time! I would recommend Olla Abbasi to anyone and everyone… she is a class act and she will deliver what she promises! Thank you Olla!!!"
Pete and Lisa DeMarco
"Now that Julie and I are settling in, I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all the effort, follow-up and specifically the patience and determination you showed during the purchase process. As you know, this is not the first home I have ever purchased, but based on all the changes and challenges of procuring a mortgage, this was by far the most trying. I appreciate your constant updates to myself and the homeowners, along with the subtle “pushes” you gave to the attorneys, mortgage reps and appraisers. Not only would I have no reservation in using Rose Realty again, but I would feel 100% in recommended you to friends and families to help with their realty needs."
Julie and Leo Cammarota
"Working with Olla to buy & sell was an amazing experience. She
accurately advised us in the listing of our home, created a buzz that
brought in several potential buyers quickly. Olla was
instrumental in reading the potential buyers of our home, and giving us
the peace we needed to accept the best offer. Her wisdom & experience
were the driving force that allowed us to sell & purchase within a very
short time! Olla was not only professional but warm & caring with our
family through this process. Our children keep asking to go visit her
& we value the relationship that has developed.
Ruby Rose should be the color of her cape as she fights for your best

From: Todd and Lisa Darby
I had the pleasure of working with Olla Abbasi on the sale of our home in August of 2010. Our home meant the world to us. We renovated it to exactly how we wanted it. Every aspect of our home was new and custom to our needs. We were in no rush to sell, so we thought our home would be on the market for a while in this economy. Well, we were wrong. Our home sold in 10 days from the time we put it on the market. Thanks to Olla who stood strong on the listing price. She made it very clear to people who were interested in viewing our home. She made sure people respected our privacy and didn’t waste our time. Her experience in selling homes in North Haledon and other towns can not be matched. She knows the market and will stand by your side as your realtor. Her knowledge, professionalism and “Go get’em” attitude is what helps your home sell. She is one of the best realtors I had the pleasure of working with. Her positive attitude and professional demeanor made the experience a much more pleasant one than we expected.
Thanks for your help,
I had my house on the market for over a year when the market was crashing and I was personally in the market for a new realtor. I had seen the Ruby Rose Realty signs around town and I knew she moved property quickly. The first time I met Olla, she spent almost 2 hours talking to me about the market, the price and how my house should be staged. She did all this before we even talked about signing a contract. Olla’s belief was that if the price was right and we stay ahead of thje market, she believed we could sell it, even going into the bleak winter season. After making the minor changes Olla had suggested (which did wonders), I decided to sign up with Ruby Rose. Olla was so confident and knowledgeable and I knew I had to trust her if I had any chance to sell my house. The first night clients were at my home, I watched Olla in action. Within 4 months of signing on with Olla, I had 3 full price offers on my home and we closed in May. In these economic times, you truly need a realtor who can sell your home. And that’s just what Olla does best. Not only do I respect her business acumen, but Olla is honest, caring and goes above and beyond to take care of her clients. As busy as she was, Olla always made time for me and was always there to answer any questions I had and to reassure me she would sell my home. I can never thank her enough for selling my home. I will be forever grateful to her.
From: Marilyn Greig of Greig & Greig Carpeting in North Haledon
Olla is very caring, sincere, & dedicated. She is a pleasure to work with. My feelings run deeper than words can express. There is nothing you could ask that she won't do. Olla is top of the line!
Marilyn had 8 transactions in one year!
From: Mark and Tina Rowe
I just wanted to offer my sincere appreciation to Olla Abbasi. This was my first time selling a home and needing the assistance of a realtor and what a pleasant experience it was! Olla's professionalism was of the highest standards that anyone could expect, and she treated my home as if it were her own.
During a time when the market value was decreasing, Olla stayed focused and optimistic. At any time, I could reach out to Olla for a question or concern and she was there to answer me with confidence and conviction. Despite the market, Olla sold our house in approximately three months for close to the asking price. We couldn't have been happier!
For many, selling a home can be stressful, but Olla created a wonderful experience for my wife and me. Not only did we find a highly reputable realtor, but we also made a true friend!

From: Thomas Kelly JR.
I would like to personally thank you for myself, my mother, and brother for all your hard work and dedication on the sale of our project.
I feel your professionalism and focus were the key reasons for the sale of the property in this difficult real estate market. I was always comfortable with the entire experience due to the excellent communication with your office. I will tell you from experience that communication is extremely important. I have had agents who would barely return my calls for information. Where as you called me regularly and updated my mother and myself.
Your guidance during the several tough negotiations was also a great benefit to us and helped us realize the best finanacial outcome possible.
Again I would like to send you and Zeina our heart felt thanks for your bringing this project to a successful conclusion. I feel we not only have found great real estate agents but have found great friends.
Very Truly Yours,

When we listed our home for the first time, we had no luck selling it. A few years later, when we decided to give it another try, we had since met Olla. Because of her passion for what she does and the enthusiasm she showed after seeing our home, there was no doubt that we would list with her. Not only did our home sell in less than two weeks, but she followed through with all the services she promised us. She was a true friend throughout the entire process.
From: Albert Stampone
When you do business with Olla not only do you get the proficiency and expertise you would expect from a respected professional in their respective field, but in addition you get a personal touch from someone who actually cares about your happiness. She’s always available and always pleasure to deal with.
From: Greg Zimmer
I am writing this letter as an expression of my deep appreciation of the professionalism and expertise I experienced in my recent dealings with Ms. Olla Abbasi of the Keller Williams Real Estate Company. Earned or not, real estate agents often have a reputaion for "pushiness" and a "sell it at any cost," mentality. Olla is the exact opposite of this unfortunate stereotype. She is more about building a relationship of trust and confidence between herself and her prospective about building a relationship of trust and confidence between herself and her prospective clients. After our first hour plus with Olla, my fiancé and I felt like we had known her for years. We were equally impressed with her complete and detailed knowledge of the real estate market and what was affecting it at the time. What a welcome change from real estate agents we had dealt with previously!
About a week after our initial meeting, we had developed such a high level of trust and confidence in Olla that we decided to give her the listings of both my fiancé's and my home, while we continued to discuss with her the possible purchase of the home where we originally met her. This was not always an easy thing to do, but Olla handled it was if it were an everyday occurence, even though it sometimes involved several hours of her valuable time.
Less than 2 weeks after we listed our homes, personal issues caused us to have to withdraw from our agreement with Olla and Keller Williams. Rather than complain about how much time she had invested, or try to talk us out of our decision, Olla professionally handled this unfortunate development with all the class and acumen she had shown us from the very outset. We were so grateful it's hard to describe.
I'm sure there are many real estate agents who can sell a home for you or help you to buy one- but I'm just as sure that there are precious few who can do it as well or as with as much as class with Olla does. I recommend her without reservation. I would be happy to discuss our experience with any one who might want more details.
From: Joe and Christine Straub
I woud like to take his oppurtunity to express our thank to Keller Williams, and especially our agent Olla Abbasi, with regard to the sale of our North Haledon home. In our first meeting with Olla we immediately recognized her as a true sales professional, and that of the various agents we interviewed, the hands down choice for the sale of our home. We also recognized the Keller Williams agency with is broad national base in concert with attention to the individual and the local market were an added benefit.
Having thus made the choice to go with Olla and Keller Williams, we continued to be pleased with the professionalism and personal attention provided us. This continually strengthening trust blossomed even further as Olla and ourselves quickly became good friends, close and comfortable as family. Together, we strove forward in the current difficult market under Olla's guidance, knowing full well Olla had our best interests at heart, reaping the benefits of Olla's networking skills and market knowledge.
Following a series of difficult steps, price adjustments, made easier through the support and coaching Olla provided us, daylight began to dawn and a viable buyer emerged from within the Keller Williams family. Given our success and the care we have received from the Keller Williams family, we have begun to spread the word to other friends and neighbors whom are considering the sale of their home. So in closing we give Keller Williams and Olla our thanks, knowing we have succeeded together in a very difficult market and have found a life-long friend.

Sold and Purchased North Haledon Home
It is our pleasure to write this letter to make you aware of the wonderful experience we had with the sale of our home and subsequently purchase of our current home last November.
Our real estate agent was Olla Abbasi. She maintained a professional rapport through some very difficult situations that we encountered during the months that we worked together.
Olla always made herself available whenever we felt there was something of interest we wanted to see. She never allowed us to become discouraged even as our closing date was encroaching upon us as we had no place to go. It is only because of her steady perseverance and strong commitment to us that we found the home of our dreams. She would not allow us to settle for anything less.

Thank you! On behalf of my entire family I would like to express our gratitude to you for your diligence, professionalism and most importantly, your compassion during the sale of my parents' house.
As you know after the loss of my mom, emotions about selling the family house were running high. Your kindness and understanding especially to my father, were a comfort during these difficult times. Your poise and personality are also an asset. Your gentleness with my family was matched by your fervor to achieve the best sale possible.
Without hesitation, I will recommend you to friends and family for future real estate needs. Thank You again!
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all your help in selling my mother's house. When my mom passed away my sisters and I didn't know who we could call, or who we could trust with our family home..and then our attorney suggested you.
Soon after we made an appointment to meet you at the house. You had a look around and then explained everything that needed to be done, but what was most important was your compassion for us. We were still grieving and even though you had a full day of appointments you stayed and talked to us about our beloved Mother until we were all crying and then laughing.
You never pressured me to change my mind about the price, you were very honest about the description of the house, never ever being misleading about it. You would call to see how we were doing and I consider you a very dear friend. Olla, you made what was a sad situation bearable and for that I will always be grateful. I call you my friend or even more so, my "adopted daughter". You are honest, have integrity and you truly care about your clients.
Thank you again,
Thank you so much for all of your help with the house and especially for your generous gift for Cameron!
May God continue to bless you and your family!
