The house sold quickly and with your guidance the closing went smoothly.
We write to thank you and your office staff for selling our home. Before listing our house with Remax Leading Edge, we interviewed three Newton Real Estate brokers. We chose you, as you put us at ease, and clearly did your homework.
Your Market Analysis was a comprehensive report which included current sales in our neighborhood. You worked with us to establish a listing price that was effective in selling our home, in a market that was rapidly changing. Your offices’ team approach to listing our home helped us prepare the house, making it appealing to a large group of buyers. Your marketing package and user friendly website presented our home to potential buyers.
We would like to thank you, Mary Lou and your team for working with us and being available during the entire process. We are very pleased and retired in the Berkshires.

"The advice you gave us on marketing the property was right on target"
Both Vinnie and I wanted to take a moment to express our appreciation for the support, efficiency and effort that we received from you during the process of selling our house in Newton. You gently and efficiently guided us through some pretty stressful times, listened to our concerns, and felt you always had our best interest in mind. The advice you gave us on marketing the property was right on target and when we looked to you for help in negotiating offers, you were amazing. We would recommend you to family and friends without any hesitation. Thanks again for a job well done!

"I wouldn't call another broker to buy or sell"
"I have known Janet for twenty years. We have bought and sold five houses together. Her professionalism and dedication to helping her clients achieve the best possible outcome for selling and/or buying is outstanding. We have just sold my fifth house this February 2012. Janet and her staff were tireless in their effort in helping me achieve a very positive outcome. I wouldn't call another broker to buy or sell, because I know that Janet will get the job done efficiently and in a very reasonable amount of time."

"Due to your expertise, we were able to sell our house within a short period of time"
Jim and I want to thank you very much for all your assistance in helping us sell our home. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. Due to your expertise, we were able to sell our house within a short period of time negating the necessity of having to show the house many times over. Your practical, yet creative ideas, I feel were very helpful in helping us sell more quickly. We found it very helpful that you know a wide variety of contractors and workmen that could help us with repairs that were necessary. You were always available to us for questions or problems and have helped solve quite a few. We also appreciated the fact that you took time to come over whenever we needed to talk to you and also drive us wherever we needed to go. In all, Janet it has been a very good experience having you as our broker. I always felt we could depend on you to help us make the right decisions. Again, our gratitude to you and I would certainly recommend you as a broker to my friends and family.

"I benefit from her experience and advice"
I knew the name Janet Edsall well before I started working in real estate by virtue of seeing her name on so many yard signs throughout the Newton area. Little did I know that in 2006 I would be working for her and her husband, Allan Fields, at RE/MAX First Realty. Now I benefit from her experience and advice, even though I technically compete with her as a fellow real estate agent. She still gives me advice whenever I ask for it and, on the occasions that I have transacted business with her, I have found those transactions to be amoung the smoothest, least troublesome transactions I have had.

"You delivered on every promise you made"
I am writing to acknowledge you for the wonderful job you did marketing our home at 35 Brooks Ave in Newtonville, MA. This was our second opportunity to use RE/MAX brokerage services and I was most impressed with the superior service you provided. The constant communication was particularly appreciated and it kept us abreast of everything that was happening during the marketing period. Given a difficult market and rather severe circumstances, you got around that very well and made sure we had good traffic through the property at all times. You delivered on every promise you made and we could not have been more pleased. I would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you again for your professionalism and hard work. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

"You simply took care of everything for us"
Al and I wanted to write to thank you for the incredible job you did selling our home on Walnut Street. Not only were you extremely professional and knowledgeable, your warmth and willingness to help made all the difference in the world.
After living on our home for 35 years, and never having sold a home before, we were uncertain what to expect. You made what could have been an extremely difficult and confusing process into one that was so easy and comfortable. Whenever we had a question or concern, Al and I used to say, "all we have to do is call Janet". There were so many things you helped us with, from help getting us pre-approval (no easy task since we are both retired), to helping us find last-minute masons, gardeners and even a new Attorney when ours backed out just two days before signing the P&S for both the house we were selling as well as buying. You simply took care of everything for us.
Finally, your knowledge and expertise as a Realtor is phenomenal. You sold our home in just 10 days in a market where houses have been sitting longer. As a result, we have been able to leisurely plan our move rather than deal with weeks (perhaps months) of showings. Thank you for all your help and thoughtfulness. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with you.

"It was a lucky day when I received a referral to you"
When my elderly cousin died last September, as a co-trustee of her estate I was quite concerned that it would be difficult to dispose of the property she left in Newton Center. I had no knowledge of market conditions, I live in Palm Springs and the other trustee is in St. Louis, and I was well aware of the fact that the house had not been properyly maintained. We were both concerned that it would be a millstone around our necks, and also that it was our duty to get it sold.
It was my lucky day when I received a referral to you. You educated me about the market. You had an excellent suggested marketing plan which you proceeded forthwith once we gave you the listing. Neither of us had a concept of the value and without your help we would have lsited it at substantially less than the actual selling price. Furthermore, you were able to deal with the various odds and ends that a usual seller at a house would ordinarily have to handle, so successfully that within two months the funds were in the Trust's bank account.
You are a true professional, and it was a joy to work with you. Many thanks.

"Thank you for going the extra mile"
When the time came to select a Realtor to represent us in the sale of our Newton Highlands home, as a life-long Newton resident, I was familiar with many of the Newton-based realty companies. My family and I were undecided on what Realtor we should retain to represent us. I solicited advice from from family members and friends and without hesitation they recommended RE/MAX First Realty. From the moment we called you and RE/MAX we knew we had made the right decision. Your professionalism and that of the staff in representing our interests was a great comfort to me and my family. The scheduling of prosective buyers to view our home was handled with consideration for our privacy and best interests. You sold our home within a very short time.
We were very pleased and when we asked you to find us a new home that met our criteria and needs, you did just that. You not only quickly found us a home that met our needs, but one that we fell in love with. Nancy and I want to personally thank you for going the extra mile.
