Testimonials for Ray Ciampaglia
Susan D Lyndhurst NJ12/08/2017
“Our description can't begin to express how great our experience working with Ray has been. From the moment he came into our home, he was professional, complimentary and straight forward - no games. He promised he'd sell our house and laid out exactly what he'd do to accomplish that. True to his word, he sold our house within ONE week of listing it and above asking price. Of course, this was the perfect outcome but, perhaps more importantly, was the journey to closing. The time between receiving an offer and closing often has bumps and bruises. When we hit a bump, Ray took care of it (more than once). He did the legwork, made the calls and made it happen. We nicknamed him Magic Ray - that should tell you much we were impressed by him! Ray made a stressful time so much easier. We wouldn't hesitate for one moment to recommend him to anyone wishing to buy or sell their home. It goes without saying that should we be in the market to buy in the future, he's the man we'll call. Ray is the realtor you want representing you.”

Hello Ray. We just came back from our vacation from the Philippines. We want to let you know how much we appreciate your great help in selling our house. We are sure that if we chose another person as our Realtor the house would still be on the market. You are so professional, ,knowledgeable, and went out of your way to settle every little detail and problem that we encountered as we went along and became nervous because of the time constraint. You made everything so easy and smooth out all the rough roads along the way. A bidding war on the 1st day! How can you beat that! The whole family was so thrilled when they heard the good news. That's Ray Ciampaglia for you..
Rest assured that you will be highly recommended not only by me but my whole family, friends, and acquaintances
Mr. Ciampaglia, THANK YOU soo much.
Thank you too, Coccia Realty for hiring a man of your caliber.

Ray handled the sale of my home with the utmost professionalism! He returns phone calls quickly. He answers any questions clearly and comprehensively. Of particular note, Ray has outstanding negotiating skills, which I believe is the most crucial factor in a real estate transaction, no matter whether you are selling a home or buying a home. He expertly guides you through the entire sales process, from the listing of your house to the closing of the sale. Do not hesitate to have Ray Ciampaglia handle your real estate transaction

We sold our house in Lyndhurst and listed it with Ray. Ray is extremely knowledgeable in the town and surrounding area. He was very helpful in determining price and how the house should be presented. He is very professional and personable and has broad knowledge in real estate. Within a couple of weeks we had several potential buyers. It was a pleasure to work with him and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone

With the help and expertise of Ray, I recently purchased my first home! I could not be more thankful for working with someone so knowledgeable and understanding to my needs as a buyer. Being a first time home buyer, I came to Ray with little knowledge and many questions. Not only did Ray answer every question in full detail, but he also made himself easily approachable and accessible. He delivered an exceedingly high level of professionalism and responsiveness, which is an extremely rare quality to come by
