We are writing you to let you know how much we have appreciated working with you in the sale of our house.
What you accomplished was way above and beyond what we could have hoped for. The bottom line is that you found us a buyer within days of having listed with you, and at a fair price. Your skillful and swift negotiations brought about a transaction that satisfied the needs of everyone involved.
We interviewed five agents before you and had another three scheduled after we met you. Based on your qualifications and energy we chose to present you with the seemingly impossible challenge of selling our house within 10 weeks. We knew that houses all over town, as well as on our own street have been on the market for over a year. You sold our house within 2 weeks!
We are immensly grateful to you, and proud of what we have accomplished with your guidance. We are even going to be able to close escrow sooner than we had hoped. This alone represents a savings to us of over $2,000. Your ideas and tips on preparing the house were so practical and effective that we completed all of the preparations much sooner and with less expense than we had anticipated.
We appreciate the many resources that you provided us, including your expertise in interior decorating. Your advice in all matters throughout this transaction has been essential. We admire your commitment to excellence and your overall expertise. You also seem to have an endless source of energy without which this transaction would have been impossible. Thank you for taking our needs, as well as the buyers' so to heart, and for all the late night hours you put in on our behalf.
I would without hesitatation recommend you to anyone who might be interested in buying or selling a house. Please feel free to use our name or this letter as a reference. You work so hard and so diligently that everyone succeeds along with you. We cannot thank you enough for helping us to pursue our dreams.
With Respect and Gratitude,
Jonathan & Marisa Rabe
