Sold - 35 Hundred Acres Road, Newtown, Connecticut
"All too often, the efforts and professionalism of an individual associated with an organization can go unnoticed. I wanted to make certain this was not the case with one of your real estate agents; Ms. Mandy Beckett of the Newtown, CT. office.
On behalf of my mother, Mildred Larson, I contracted with Mandy Beckett to market and coordinate the sale of 35 Hundred Acres Rd., Newtown, CT. I chose to work with Ms. Beckett as I desired a real estate professional who understood the uniqueness of marketing a high end home, which at most times would not be occupied, and was confident in her abilities to successfully find a buyer.
Within days of signing the listing agreement, Ms. Beckett developed glossy brochures, had placed ads in the local paper, fine tuned her marketing plan, networked with other local brokers and hosted a broker's open house lunch...all of which resulted in a tremendous amount of activity right out of the gate.
What I didn't expect was how Mandy would go above and beyond the call of the duty.
Soon after the house was listed, the record breaking snow storms of 2010/11 began. As I was living in New York, Ms. Beckett took it upon herself to physically keep the walkways shoveled and would coordinate having the driveway plowed. She also regularly checked on the house to ensure all systems were operating properly, and that there were no signs of vandalism. I also learned that prior to scheduled open houses and showings, Mandy would spruce the place up by dusting, cleaning, and displaying fresh flowers.
Her efforts certainly paid off. She presented me with a total of four (4) offers...3 of which came in virtually the same day! We carefully analyzed each offer and a decided to move forward with the offer which we felt was the strongest.
But Mandy's efforts didn't stop there. There were a number of items which needed to be addressed per the potential buyer's home inspection. Some of these items were quite involved, such as a radon evacuation system, various items pertaining to the well water system, window hardware repairs, etc. Ms. Beckett was there every step of the way from getting estimates to coordinating workman schedules. As a result of Mandy's incredible enthusiasm and "can do" attitude, we closed within 45 days after accepting the buyers offer.
Mr. Raveis, Mandy Beckett is a true asset to your company, and I hope this letter helps her get the recognition she so rightfully deserves."
