Glowing letter of recommendation

Real Estate Agent with Access Homes NC

When someone writes you a glowing letter of reccomendation it just makes your day. I was blown away by the glowing accolades and praise in this letter. I could not have paid Jerry to do better PR for me. What made it all the more special is that it came from someone in my niche: a senior couple who needed a wheel chair accessible home.


The money that I make selling real estate is nice but it is really this that I work for.

Re: Letter of Recommendation for Superb Assistance


Dear Karen:

        Sharon and I were overwhelmed  with your sincerity, knowledge of the Cary/Chapel Hill/Apex housing market, unselfish time devoted to house hunting for 3 1/2 days,contacts to whom you introduced us, dinners at expensive restaurants you expensed to your personal credit card, and driving us throughout the area to obtain a first hand impression. We have dealt with dozens of real estate agents during our 45 years of marriage in home purchases, and, no real estate adviser could even match your devotion to client needs; to paraphrase a financial term, "you ability is certainly over the top"!


  When I e-mailed your informative website on July 12th, citing a "Special Needs Trained Real Estate Agent" because of Sharon's spinal cord injury, you replied the next day with an informative e-mail. During the ensuing two months until we drove to Cary on September 14th, you mailed detailed brochures of the local area, e-mailed pictures of at least 75 plus homes which met our financial criteria as well as Sharon's requirements for a ranch home with no steps, initiated and promptly returned dozens of phone calls, and specially allocated three days to visit homes(and not being present in your office for sales leads). There was no expectation of a commitment to bid on a home by us; rather you unselfishly drove us to various communities, toured Chapel Hill for an extensive time, called individuals whom promptly called back to answer our many questions, and provided any data we requested.


    As you are aware, we are serious about bidding for a terrific home in Carolina Preserve which is a resale of 5 years, priced within our financial parameters. It meets all of our requirements and is in "move in condition". I have discussed my potential move to Cary with the V.P. of my firm, since I have to continue working. After she receives an answer from senior management, I will discuss an opening bid with you, if allowed to relocate with my firm.


     When we often sought your opinion of a specific house, you stated repeatedly "You should be comfortable with the financial commitment required and enjoy your surroundings". Never once did you worry about commissions that might be bypassed if we did not bid on a house you visited with us. This attitude is exemplary and why I was as enthusiastic when interviewed by Jennifer of the Cary News & Observer newspaper on Friday, September 15th in Apex.


Jennifer was overwhelmed with my praise of your ability, and never expected such as laudatory interview from a prospective client. However, you deserved all the accolades, and hopefully, will be featured in the "Home News": section shortly.


     Please cite this letter to future prospective clients for whom you will assist in a home purchase. They can be relocating "Yankees" (although I am proud to be an Akron, Ohio Midwesterner by birth and college education),  local retirees, young families upgrading, or "Special Needs' clients for whom you can readily assist in their housing requirements. My cell and home numbers are cited on top of this letter, namely, Cell 732-261-6555, and Home # 732-521-5043. They can call anytime, and I will provide them with frank answers including impressions about the area, homes, restaurants, taxes, utility costs, etc.


     Most important for any prospective client is THE INTEGRITY OF THE REAL ESTATE AGENT for which you are nonpareil (defined in Webster's dictionary as "an individual of unequaled excellence") -Karen, you personify this trait and MORE!
