Full-time, full-service, CT licensed real estate professional specializing in short sales, serving central Connecticut.
As a full-time, full-service, CT Licensed Real Estate Broker, I help Connecticut homeowners sell their homes quickly and easily for top dollar, and I specialize in short sales.
Where I work:
I list and sell residential homes, condominiums and multi-family properties in central Connecticut including, but not limited to; Avon, Berlin, Bristol, Cheshire, Cromwell, Farmington, Glastonbury, Hamden, Meriden, Middlefield, Middletown, Newington, New Britain, North Branford, North Haven, Plainville, Portland, Prospect, Rocky Hill, Southington, Wallingford, West Hartford, Wethersfield and Wolcott.
Short sale services available throughout CT on a case by case basis.
What my clients have to say:
We just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the hard work and energy you have put in to selling our house in a short sale. We're quite sure that had it not been for your extensive knowledge of short sales (and related circumstances that we happened to be in), and had it not been for your persistence where others may have given up, that we would never have accomplished the desirable outcome that you have achieved on our behalf.
For many months we had considered a short sale of our home in order to gain a better financial prospect for our family's future. We even consulted with several local real estate agents about the topic. However, we were never quite comfortable with their lack of knowledge and experience of home short sales, and because of that, our outlook was bleak. Then, as if by fate or Providence, we happened upon a colleague of yours in real estate who highly recommended you as a specialist in home short sales.
While I was discouraged by our previous failed attempts, my wife took the chance and consulted with you about our circumstances. She knew immediately (and I soon did too) that you were the right person for the job! Now, after all is said and done, we have no doubt that we could not have done this without you and we are grateful to have benefited from your expertise! In fact, during our short sale listing with you, our previous real estate agent humbly admitted that she could not have served us as well as you have in our situation.
We can whole-heartily, without hesitation, say that we believe that you're one of the best in your field of home short sales and would never even consider using any other real estate agent for our family's real estate needs in the future. Your intelligence, knowledge, high energy and commitment to your work would greatly serve anyone who is in need of a specialist in real estate and we undoubtedly will recommend you to all of our friends and family.
Best wishes to your continued success, and we look forward to working with you in the future!
Thank you!" ~T.P.
"Minna.. God Bless You!!
I just want you to know that your efforts have been truly amazing.
I tried to keep the house until we could be in a better position to sell. It nearly killed me. But in my mind, I thought I was doing to best thing for all of us. I wish I would have known sooner that it would have been that painless. I was afraid the house would have haunted us both for a long time.
And I must admit trying to find a place for me to move was a big concern as well, but I did..with not much effort.
It all worked out like a dream.
Thank You Deeply." -G.B.
"I just want to let you know that I really appreciate all the time and energy you spent on short selling my father's house. I know it wasn't an easy short sale but you kept at it (even when I was thinking about throwing in towel) and got my father an amazing resolution. You've lifted a huge burden off of our shoulders and we cannot thank you enough. Please thank your assistant as well for her efforts on our behalf. If I hear of anyone who needs a great real estate agent, I will definitely pass on your name and number." ~K.C.
"I have nothing but thanks and praise for you..You took an otherwise loose end of a horrible situation and gave it a "happy" ending...so glad its behind me...your AWESOME! " ~ R.K.
"I just wanted to thank you for all of your help in selling my house as a short sale. You were very knowledgable on the subject and took care of everything for me, even when things seemed tough in dealing with the bank. You were upfront and told me what I could expect and you were right. Your professionalism pulled through in helping me out of a tight situation. I sincerely cannot thank you enough for helping me to get to a better place where I can live comfortably. Thank you not only for doing your job so well, but for making it easy for me." ~ E.H.
"Just a short note to thank you for the efforts you put forth in the sale of our home. Although we will dearly miss our home, it is with gratitude that you, Minna, helped ease our transgressions from home owner to renter. Again, thank you for all the assistance as we wish you good health and prosperity in the upcoming and fast approaching new year." ~ T.A.
"Thank you a thousand times more Minna! Your awesome, you kept your promise and got our house sold! Thank God and thank you again...Thank you, thank you, thank you, " ~M.W.
"Thanks for coming to my rescue...I am so glad you are on my team. I would not want to be on the other end of your whip. Thanks Minna." ~E.C.
"You are wonderful! You've stuck with me for a year and never let me down. No pressure - no BS. I have always felt that you wanted to help me find a place - not needed me to find a place for your benefit. You can count on me to always recommend you to family and friends and anyone else who is in the market to buy or sell. I don't even refer to you as my realtor in conversations... it's always "my friend Minna says".... you're the best!" ~ M.B.
"We want to thank you for making our move a smooth one!!!.....we could not have done it without you!!!...thanks for all your hard work......You are a great realtor!....the best!" ~C.D.
"Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for all the HARD work you did. I feel so thankful that God connected us at the most perfect time. You are truly awesome Minna. I know that you and your family will be most awesomely blessed." ~S.S.
"Thanks again...very helpful. You're the only one on the ball here. If it wasn't for you, I'd be pulling my hair out!! THANK YOU!!!!! Your amazing Minna : )....You've gone well above and beyond any expectations I'd ever had." ~S.R.
"The most important thing to me was that I always knew that Minna put me and my needs first, not the sale or the commission. I appreciated the professional way that my thoughts were communicated to the buyer and his agent.
I loved the immediacy of the website that appeared online after signing a contract with Minna. It made my house look like the best buy of the year!
Even when I got rattled and uptight at the homeselling process, Minna remained calm and patient. I enjoyed the smooth confidence that Minna brought to the closing." ~ D.F.
"You've shown excellent diligence in finding possible properties for me and are very responsive even at later hours of the evening. That and your professional knowledge, including Internet/technology savvy abilities to create an Internet-presence for your business and of course access to all the properties chosen. After sorting through all the ads and junk online, it's excellent to have found a professional to work with me to find a property.I will be recommending you to anyone who is seeking a professional real estate agent for the Connecticut area." ~J.S.
"I am unbelievably impressed with your dedication to your client. This person should feel lucky to have someone so concerned about their real estate purchase. I would steer anyone I knew, that was looking for a house, to use you as an agent." ~ J.M.
"Thank you so much for a great job well done. Very professional and you always got back to me....You really helped me out. Thanks again." ~ R.K.
"Thats what grabbed me - your passion /your serious...too many realtors are part time. You're agressive. I wish the broker who I contracted to sell my business was 1/4 as agressive as you are. I am so happy you found me...I love your style...I can see your a pro...." ~ R.N.
