Testimonials for Carol Rutgers
Cecilia, Benjamin, Pauline and Patricia Suan01/20/2014
Hi Carol, It's always great to hear from you. We truly appreciate all the help you have extended to us. All four of us are enjoying our stay in the Canterbury townhouse. It's a lot more spacious and a more comfortable place for us. Wow! You were so detailed on the walk-through. Thanks a lot for emailing the list of our concerns with the townhouse. The owner knows that these concerns existed prior to our move there. We did not push on the minor issues that can still be accommodated and the owner already corrected the major ones. She was very attentive to any complaints we had when we moved in. It's really helpful that you were there to back us up! By the way, Benjamin told me that you also spoke to the pool security about the use of the pool for us. Thanks so much! I have not been to the pool yet, but our daughters, Pauline and Patricia, have been going to the pool (four days in a row)! Benjie is using the tennis courts, while the kids are swimming. It will be my pleasure to refer you to my family and friends who will be searching for their new home here in NJ. We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and for all your help during the process. Thanks also for you invaluable advise to Pauline as she gets ready to begin school at Rutgers. We will keep in touch. Take care always and all the best!

Thanks for all your help with our first house. Be sure to visit us on the lakefront! We had our wedding on the lake as planned and fixed up the porch. We love the views.
Thanks again for the rubber boat, too. Haven't tried it out yet, but I'm sure it will be fun :)
Thanks a bunch, Justin and Carol
Carol, I can’t thank you enough for getting my mom’s house sold so quickly. The house had been on the market for 13 months when we solicited your support. You dove right in, and with your support and guidance, offers were received and one finally accepted several months later. You had the patience of a saint, dealing with all of the ups and downs, and weathered the storm with utmost professionalism, efficiency and compassion for all those involved. It was not easy dealing with an owner who had lived there, and loved living there, for 58 years. We did not feel like just another client. We felt more of a friend or family member. We truly appreciate everything you did for our family and look forward to happy, less challenging, times ahead.

Thanks Carol, You've been so fantastic through this whole process; thanks so much for all of your help! Also, I sent along your information to the people in my department at Rutgers who help all the new hires move, I hope you get some business from them! I blind-copied you on the email and this is it: Hi Sherri and Maureen, I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with our realtor, who found us a fantastic rental and went the extra mile to get us much more than we expected. She even counseled us against taking our first choice because she knew something better would come along, and two weeks later it did. I thought I'd let you know in case any other new hires inquire, her name is Carol Rutgers (I know, it’s crazy, but her name is Rutgers!) and she is with Golden Key Realty and acts as both a buyer's and renter's agent. Best, Mike We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the townhouse you helped us to pick - thanks again for everything; moving can be so stressful, but working with you has really put our minds at ease!!! I'm sure we'll be in touch again in the future and maybe you can help us buy a home next year! Best, Mike and Meg

It is without reservation or hesitation of any kind that we highly recommend Carol Rutgers to act as one's real estate agent. In addition to the old real estate adage of , "location, location, location" I would like to add, based on our great experience with Carol, " REALTOR®, REALTOR®, REALTOR®". Simply put, Carol is "the best REALTOR®" we have ever had and that includes agents who have worked with us in the renting, buying and selling of over ten properties over the years. Carol, even though faced with difficult timing and pricing issues worked diligently and professionally on our behalf to locate, screen and assist in the contract process, a property which met all our needs and concerns. And not only did she do this in a timely fashion, but also continued to follow-up to insure all was in order. Clearly, she worked on our behalf during the entire process and made us feel comfortable and well represented.
