The Sharron Kelley Team
350 W. Half Day Road
Buffalo Grove, IL 60089
Dear Sharron: '
Terry and I want to belatedly thank you and your team for your great service in helping
us sell our home and buy a new one.
Given the particular difficulties of achieving a normal sale in our old subdivision, your
selling challenge was immense. You knew that the odds of making a commissioned sale
for us were almost nil, yet you persevered and provided us with the full range of your
team's services, plus any personal consultation that we needed. We deeply appreciate
On the sales side, we want to applaud you and your staff for the quality of salespresentation
tools you provided. The good news is that the materials you prepared made
us see the old home we loved in an even better light. The bad news is that those materials
made us regret even more that we were leaving it.
On the buying side, Terry and I want to salute Marilyn Smith. As you know, her patience,
intelligence, and directness made her a perfect fit for us and for our circumstances.
Marilyn fully understood that our reasons for selling our home were unique and that
finding the right home to replace it could be a long, tortured process. And that is exactly
what it turned out to be. Yet Marilyn was always willing to show us more and more
homes. Although it made her job harder, Marilyn also consistently turned us away from
homes that she recognized as bad fits for us. We should add that sharing so much time
with Marilyn was a joy. She has a grace and charm that made it easy for us to spend those
many hours with her.
We'd also like to thank Alicia and the other home-office people on your team. Their
professionalism and follow-through consistently helped ease the often-traumatic process
of selling and buying.
You've put together a great team, Sharron. We know that your future clients will benefit
