July 10, 2009 Hi Karen and Dan, Now that its all over and I'm in my new apartment (and exhausted), I want to take the time and thank you very, very much for all your hard work in selling my house. I know it was tough at times, even ugly given the circumstances, but you stayed in there with me and you supported me in getting me what I needed in order to agree to the terms of the sale. I realize you did me a favor in working for a lower commission than you normally get, and I appreciate that greatly also. Thanks again for a great job. Sincerely, Michael
indee is the #1 realtor I would recommend In the Millburn-Short Hills area. I was left with the difficult task of relocating within town after the spring market had passed on my house. Not only did she find the right buyer in an August/September market, but she found us the perfect place to go when the buyer wanted a rapid close. It was no small task and Sindee was tireless in her search. Without her saavy and expertise, I don't think we would have found a place, let alone a place that was so perfect for us! If you are looking for a truly professional agent, who will represent you with the highest level of honesty and integrity, call Sindee.
I cannot begin to thank you enough for the excellent service which you provided to my mom pertaining to the sale of her home at 35 Sparta Road in Short Hills. Your expert and professional attitude was pervasive throughout the transaction, and you made it easy and natural for her to move from a home where she spent thirty five years. You were always available to help her in any way that facilitated the transaction, and offered an excellent sale price and expeditious closing. I thank you again and look forward to doing business with you in the future
I want to thank you for helping with the recent sale of our family homestead in Short Hills. You were very sensitive to some family 'challenges' & realized that having open houses would be too stressful. Despite that, you were able to find a buyer very quickly for a very good price, & get the closing done in short order. It hurts to lose the family house, but you both helped to ease the pain & to do a mitzvah. I highly recommend your wonderful, thoughtful, efficient, thorough, & professional service.
It is a bit of a cliché in today’s business environment that customer satisfaction is paramount. The reality is that it isn’t what an organization says they will do, it is about how the individuals within execute. I met Sindee Buchalter of Towne Reality this past year, as I endeavored with a business partner to purchase a rental property in Millburn. I was immediately struck by her dedication to walking us through the process, her diligence in maintaining control of negotiations and the degree to which she honestly cared about our needs. Needless to say, this transaction had it unique twists and turns, but Sindee’s tenacity stood fast. Immediately after the closing I felt so comfortable that I didn’t hesitate to ask her to handle a much more personal task; the relocation of my parents. Having elder parents with a very specific set of needs based on a health was a definite challenge. Again, Sindee dove in head first with what I will characterize as her trademark patience and sensitivity. Within several weeks she was able to find the perfect location and layout that has made all the difference in the world for my parents. It is this unique set of qualities and sincerity that truly impressed me about Sindee and makes Towne Realty my first choice.
From the first day, Sindee was ready to not only help us find a new house, but to make sure that we would be prepared to move in and get settled in our new neighborhood. She's been wonderful at recommending professionals to help us create our new home and has been an invaluable resource. We could not have been more fortunate. Thanks Sindee.
After having been given the responsibility of selling my parents home in Millburn, the home I grew up in, I decided to call Karen Eastman Bigos at Towne Realty Group. I knew she had a track record of success and had recently read about her new agency. My parents were local retailers and I’ve always believed that one is most likely to get the best service and results from a local business as opposed to a conglomerate. Karen and her partner Daniel Cannizzo met me at the house. My original intention was to interview several realtors but after a short period of time with them I realized there was no reason to meet with anyone else. It didn’t take me long to see why they were so successful. I felt at ease with them. They were both raised in Millburn Township, were the children of local business proprietors, and obviously knew everything there was to know about Millburn Township. I had a chance to see how they market their listings and was thoroughly impressed. As a result of their marketing prowess, we were fortunate enough to have offers quickly. Karen reviewed each of them with me and guided me through the entire process. Karen and Dan were always available if I had questions or concerns. They also guided me through the process of making sure that everything was in order to complete the transaction. They were patient, sincere, and knowledgeable. Let’s get to the point. If you are selling a house in Millburn Township, or you are looking to live there, don’t call anyone else. Towne Realty will get you the results you are looking for!
From LinkedIn: “If you need a Realtor who is Everything in One.....then Karen is for you. But she is far more than just a wonderful Leader of a Real Estate Company. Her skills go way beyond helping you with a real estate transaction. Karen has a tremendous heart, fabulous integrity, great passion to help others, and knows how to get the job done. She never says a particular task is impossible, and has an uncanny ability to clear obstacles in the way. But by the same token, she will always be candid, disagree when she believes in something, and give you her honest opinion. I was very thankful that Karen could help my Parents sell their home in a tough economic market. There is not enough I can say the way she handles herself from the beginning to the end of the transaction. Most importantly, Karen is someone you enjoy doing business with, and you know that she truly wants to do the right thing for your Family (not just a person looking to make a buck). You owe it to yourself to speak with Karen....then you make the decision yourself. Believe me, you'll have a smile on your face after you've experienced the Karen Difference!!!!!” April 5, 2011
During our search for a new home, Xiaoxing was extremely patient and understanding and we could count on her to look out for our interests. Even though we looked at multiple neighborhoods and ultimately looking across the whole spectrum of price points, she was never pushy or judgemental. She always made herself available to visit homes with us (sometimes the same house more than once!) and she was easily accessible as she guided us throughout the process. We have 100% trust that Xiaoxing will always tell us what she thinks about a property or location, even if that would jeopardize the purchase. She manages any conflicts of interest very professionaly and she is one of the most honest and hard working individuals we have met - and it is no surprise to us how successful her business has become!
What does one look for in a real estate agent. Someone who is highly professional, responsible, knowledgeable, informative and is a tough but fair negotiator. Someone a who is always looking out for her client's interests and whose advice you can trust. Sindee embodies all the above traits and qualities and I give her my highest recommendation as a Realtor. If all that wasn't enough, in addition, she isn't pushy and gives you the information you need to make an informed decision on your own. From the moment we gave her our listing she made selling the house as minimally difficult and painful process as it could be. She helped us arrive at a realistic sales price which greatly improved our odds of selling it. When offers were made that were ridiculously low, she had our back in standing firm with the buyers at our price. She wasn't looking to just score a sale and urge us to sell low. She aided us in putting together an attractive photo display for our home brochure. Her recommendations for a real estate attorney, photographer and movers were excellent. On the flip side she helped us through the painstaking job of finding a new home to live in and when that wasn't ready at our closing she helped us find excellent temporary housing in an apartment offering short term leasing which has proven fabulous. From beginning to end Sindee was so professional and helpful and because of her we sold our home quickly and very close to our asking price. We are extremely satisfied with all her efforts. We are very happy and satisfied and would give her 6 stars if you had them.
