Kind Words from Past Clients
WHAT A RELIEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is what RE/MAX means to my husband and I. When I see the commercials I now breathe a sigh of relief. About 6 Months ago my husband and I were having difficulty with selling our beautiful house. The problem was not our house; it was the real estate people we were dealing with. I was helpless and began searching for an honest realtor who would listen to our problems and feel as we did. Well I found them, Desiree Daniels and Albert Sodaro of RE/MAX. When I read their testimonials I knew there was someone out there that could help us. We were in a situation where we had to leave for Florida and needed to sell our house or be stuck in financial ruin. Sympathetic and professional Desiree came to our rescue. She told us the facts, the way they were, and helped to reassure us that this too will pass. Well a short time thereafter, it did. I thank them everyday in my prayers. They calmed us down and helped with whatever we needed done on the New Jersey side, especially because we were so far away. I dont ever want to have to sell another house again, but if I had to, Desiree and Al would be the two that I would trust. My husband & I left to relocate to another state and were completely confident that they would take care of my asset. AND THEY DID!! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
FOR THE BEST REAL ESTATE TEAM IN ALL OF MERCER COUNTY!!!!!
My fiance and I began looking for properties in Foxmoor, our idea was to go look at the open houses by ourselves and not get involved with what we thought to be a hassle dealing with realtors. Well ----let me start by telling you--- that the by yourself searching was not working at all. So one night while on the Internet I came upon Desiree and Al's web site and I gave her a call, and I immediately knew that this was the team that I so desperately need assistance from. After one conversation with Desiree, I knew that all the horror stories I had heard about realtors, (mainly not caring about the buyers best interest and saying or do anything just to make a deal happen) were not the case here.Desiree from the start was very personal and sincere. She knew what we were looking for and what price range we could afford. And most of all, knew that this was a first home buyer deal and went way above and beyond the call from a realtors stand point. From mortgage contacts, to different mortgages available out to research that we knew nothing about, to assistance with closing, to contacts for everything from appliances to flooring. Not to forget returning my million calls and never giving up hope after showing us several, and I mean several properties!!! Their experience and help was priceless.So finally when a property came up that was a little out of our price range, they made it happen and I mean that literally. I can honestly say that without working with Desiree and Al, I do not believe that our deal would have ever happened and for that we are beyond thankful. And when you meet people in the real estate business that have to offer what this team does, you also end up with something you least expected and that's a friend!!

Dear Desiree and Al,
Thanks so much for easing my fear for selling and purchasing a home at the same time. I came to you with very specific needs, (thinking initially, no way can they make all this happen), and you made it all happen and more. It was of great comfort to me to know you both were in my corner looking out for me every step of the way. Everything has turned out wonderfully and Ive learned so much through the process.
When it was time for some tough decision-making, you were, quite simply, the words of wisdom and experience. Thanks again for making my second home purchase a wonderful reality.

I work in the real estate industry and know plenty of real estate agents and believe me when I say that Desiree Daniels and Al Sodaro are truly the most down to earth agents I know. They are not out for the dollar, they have true compassion and genuinely care about their clients. Since I work in the industry you would think why not do a "For Sale By Owner"; way to much work! I would rather et the professionals handle it. Desiree and At have a great name in the reaL estate world, many people know who they are, making them a valuable team to list my property with. My house was on the market for one (1) week, we had bids coming out of the wood work! We even got more than asking price. During our transaction when I began to get a bit antsy, Desiree and Al would always calm me down. Reassuring me that everything was okay and the closing would be smooth. Well, they were right! I recommend Desiree and Al to everyone!

"Desiree & Al Rescue a down & out For Sale By Owner"
I thought I was so smart. I didn't need a professional realtor to help me sell my house. How hard can it be? Put an ad in the paper. Get a lawyer. Have an open house. SOLD! Right? WRONG! And to make matters worse, I had such confidence in myself and my abilities as a salesman/realtor, that I went ahead and bought the condo I was downsizing into. Talk about jumping from the frying pan into the fire! Well, let me tell you ...... 10 weeks of placing ads in newspapers, days wasted holding open houses, having hundreds of color fact sheets printed and spending literally thousands of dollars to try and market my townhouse to sell, here I was, no offers, no prospects and after closing on the condo, two mortgage payments to make instead of one. Want to talk about desperate? Enter Desiree and Al.The Sunday afternoon I met Desiree must have been my lucky day. She was having an open house in the neighborhood that I had purchased my little condo. And I just popped in to take a look. I began to tell her my tale of woe about the townhouse that I couldn't seem to sell and my condo that I really didn't want to move into after all. (Decisions made in haste are usually regretted.) She listened carefully and then followed me home to give my some pointers on what I was doing wrong. Her no pressure attitude and friendly, and caring concern were refreshing after having to fend off many high pressure realtors that the FSBO newspaper ads had attracted. She listened patiently and then helped me to make a decision concerning the condo that I would never have been able to make without her knowledgeable input and advice. She listed the condo for resale, Al had an open house and they had it under contract within a week. Desiree then introduced me to a mortgage agent that was able to rescue me from financial ruin by coming up with a mortgage plan that would allow me to consolidate my bills and keep my townhouse. She also managed to recoup most of my money that I would have lost on a condo that I really didn't want to live in after all. At the closing on the condo, we ran into some problems caused by the previous owners of the condo who had left heavy furniture in the attic. My buyers requested it be moved and Desiree and Al came to my rescue again by volunteering to go on their own time to move the stuff out for me. If you truly want someone on your side, watching out for your interests and putting their abundant selling skills to work on your behalf around the clock, you have only to call Desiree and Al. Job done well, my friends. I can't thank you enough. Gale Dunn-Kline
Dear Potential Buyer/Seller, This is not a letter you would normally read at a real estate agents office. Desiree & Al were not our real estate agents-but the agents for the buyer of our home. We were so impressed that we wanted to write a letter to let people know how wonderful they are and to thank them for all of their knowladge, help, and hard work.
We unfortunatley listed our home with "FOXTONS" which turned out to be "One of the costliest mistakes we ever made"!!!If it weren't for Desiree & Al, we have serious doubts that the sale would have even gone through.
Let me begin to tell you a few of the awful things we had happen to us by using "FOXTONS".
- They had our home listed as a condo not a town house -The square footage was off by 400 sq. ft. (Which in a town house is a huge deal) -The showing times were wrong -I had to call multiple times to get things accomplished. -We had positively no help at the closing. -We bareley ever heard from our so called "Real Estate Agent". I put that in quotes because he was a great salesman, got us to sign with them, and then disappeared.
I could go on & on, but i'm sure you get the idea. We are convinced we lost thousands of dollars by going with "FOXTONS" instead of a legitamate real estate agent.
Desiree & Al have been so incredibly helpful and and gone completely out of their way to help us in the whole process, and remember they weren't our agents-they were the buyers agents!!! After dealing with "FOXTONS" they were a breath of fresh air.
We can't thank them enough, they are extremely knowladgeable, helpful, and wonderful to work with.
If you are even considering going with a discount Real Estate Broker to sell your house - DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! Put it this way, we are closing on our house tomorrow and "FOXTONS" has not been a part of the process at all. I don't even know if they have any idea we are closing tomorrow. We havent heard from them at all. and don't expect to. They are totally disorganized, I fully expect to get a call next week (after the house is sold) saying they would like to show the house. (Them being me I might add)
WE are gratefiul to Desiree & Al and we wish we had known sooner- we would have saved ourselves a lot of money and heatache had we not signed with "FOXTONS"..
We would highly, off the charts, recommend Desiree & Al if you need a real estate agent.

To Whom It May Concern: I like many other women in the world today, am single, and found myself making another lifestyle adjustment. In May of this year I toiled with the idea of selling my townhouse, and moving into a one-floor home. This thought was overwhelming to me at first. Then I met Desiree Daniels, and Al Sodaro, agents for Re-Max Tri-county.
They both made the transition smooth, in spite of the rocky times. When I needed a pep talk, they were there. When I needed someone at the house inspections, they were there. But, I'll never forget packing, I felt pure frustration disassembling shelving that was going with me. Then the phone rang. It was Desiree calling to see how I was doing, and to relate the status of the impending sale. Like a an angel from heaven, Desiree said that Al would be there in the morning, and take care of whatever problems I was having.
The next hurtle I had to overcome was that my attorney took ill, and was not able to take care of the sale of my townhouse. Again I turned to Desiree for help, and she was right there for me. I was referred to a most capable attorney, Mauree Slavin, Esq., who was more than glad to take my case.
The next challenge was the settlement. It is safe to say that this was a settlement to remember! Al and my attorney, Maureen focused straight foward on my needs, and came to a agreeable closure. In closing I would like to state that I would highly recommend Desiree and Al as a real estate team "who gets the job done!"
My wife and I used Desiree and Al four years ago after being referred to them by a friend to help us find our first home together. We were extremely happy with their service so when we recently decided to sell our townhouse and look for something bigger it was an easy decision to ask for their help again. They found a buyer for our townhome before it even hit the market and then proceeded to find the perfect house we had been looking for in less than two weeks. When the time comes for yet another move we will again call upon Desiree and Al for their professionalism and vast knowledge of real estate to help make one of the most stressfull times in our lives seem the easiest. Until then, we will continue to refer anyone we know to them.
Jason and Michelle Cromwell
Desiree & Al,
Words cannot express the gratitude we feel towards you both. You have made our experience as pleasant as could be, going above and beyond what could be expected! You've treated us like friends and we feel like we have found friends in the both of you. We thank you for your dedication and caring. for your "ear" and for your professionalism. We look foward to working with you in the future and would recommend you to anyone who wants to work with the best!!!!
Just wanted to send along this rather belated but no less sincere thank you note for your assistance in selling our investment condominium at Wyndham Place last fall.
As absentee owners who had moved away from the area, it had become more difficult for us to keep in touch with the local market, outside of collecting rent from our tennant. However, your newsletter helped us a great deal in gauging demand in the marketplace, and when we saw our opportunity to take a profit after many years of ownership, we were naturally interested in your services.
From begining to end of our transaction, you were professional, courteous, and most importantly, ABLE, to get the property sold to our satisfaction. Whether in negotiation, updates, or in performing the closing, your service to us was outstanding and greatly appreciated!
We have no doubt that if our investment interests take us back to Southern New Jersey, we will use you again (now, about that house on LBI?), and we would equally be happy to refer you to others.
Very Truly Yours,
Brubaker and Oremland Properties
Desiree Daniels and Al Sodaro helped us find the perfect home at the right price. Then they sold our home in less than a week!.

THIS LETTER IS TO ADVISE YOU OF THE GREAT SERVICE I RECEIVED FROM DESIREE DANIELS AND AL SODARO. I FOUND THEM BOTH TO BE VERY PROFESSIONAL AS WELL AS KNOWLEDGABLE. THEY WERE VERY EASY TO TALK TO AND VERY ATTENTIVE IN GETTING BACK TO YOU ON A TIMELY MANNER SHOULD YOU HAVE A QUESTION OR A CONCERN. WHILE HOME SHOPPING I REALLY APPRECIATED THERE PATIENTS WHEN I PASSED ON A PARTICUALR PROPERTY. THE END RESULT BEING DESIREE SENDING OUT LETTERS ON MY BEHALF TO THE TENANTS OF THE COMMUNITY WHERE I REALLY WANTED TO PURCHASE. THEY WERE ABLE TO FIND ME A HOME 100% TO MY SPECIFICATION. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM. SHOULD YOU REQUIRE ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PLEASE FEEL FREE TO E-MAIL ME AT .RITAM@BIGMINC.COM

Dear Desiree & Al,
Just a note to express our appreciation to you and Al for the terrific job you did with respect to the sale of our residence in Carriage Walk at Foxmoor.
We have been involved in nearly a dozen moves over the years, and this was clearly one of the smoothest. We were particularly impressed with the professionalism you both exhibited throughout the entire process ? from the initial interview through the listing, to the introduction of the prospective purchaser, the negotiations to a mutually acceptable price, and acting via power of attorney to handle the actual closing ? all within ten weeks.
You were helpful, courteous, and supportive and made the whole thing flow to a successful conclusion with a minimum of hassle.
Thanks again, and best wishes from two satisfied clients,
Mike and Marg Brimmer
Dear Al and Desiree,
We are starting to settle in our new home and just wanted to take a few minutes to thank both of you for all your help. This townhouse you found for us is everything we wanted. It feels like home already.
Desiree, you helped us out six years ago when we were selling Heathwood. Where two other realtors had failed, you managed to help us out of very difficult financial situation. We always said that if we ever moved again you would be our realtor. We know that you once again gave 110% to help us find the perfect home. We couldn't be happier or more grateful. You always give more of yourself than expected and I know you shared in all our happy and stressful moments. Through it all you were our rock. You are the best!
Al, this is the first time we had the pleasure of working with you. We found you also to be very caring and professional. We know that you were behind us every day as we first sold Daniels and then found Endsleigh. You always made us feel like your most important clients. You were very understanding and patient with us and we quickly developed a lot of confidence in you. Thank you so much for everything you did.
You two make a wonderful team. We have no plans to move again for a very very long time but you should know that you will always be our realtors.
Thank you again. Don't be surprised if we pop into one of your open houses just to say Hi.
After finding our home we wanted by shopping around ourselves we began to dream about what things we where going to do to our new home that all we wanted a full basement, garage, two and a half baths, and the right price..........well it was all we wanted all we thought we had however...the sellers lost their home they went to purchase so .....thats right we lost ours. so back out again and again and again hopeless! We finally looked in Andover Glen and found a few nice condos....and we found Desiree and Al on their flyer. I called we looked they helped and we got our condo. Now we are happy and know that everything happens for a reason.....we now have our "first dream condo" and we will when ready to move onto something bigger will def. call upon Desiree and Al. they are both very personalable and really are wonderful people. we thank them and recommand them to all who are looking. Good luck to alll of you on your search and try Desiree and Al...they helped us.

I was on an on-again, off-again house hunting roller coaster that lasted most of last year. Newly single, I was dealing with a very limited budget and equally limited market in my price range. Just when I thought there was no hope of ever finding anything within my budget and timeframe, Desiree and Al found me the perfect house! They went through hoops to make sure I could close when I wanted to and were in my corner all the way.
They were the ideal realtors ? patient with my unending questions, understanding of my (sometimes unrealistic) wishes, always supporting and guiding me so I could make the right decision for me.
Desiree and Al did it all, and made, what could have been a discouraging and difficult process, into a process filled with hope and laughter. If I ever decide to sell this house, Desiree and Al will be the first people I call!
