When Sue Adler says that hers is a "team" effort, that's the real truth, and one of the major strengths of selecting her as your agent. Her husband, Peter Jacoby, took what are by far the best photographs of our former home, a rather unique Mid-Century Modern ranch in Mendham, NJ. It's an unusual 10,000+ square foot space, and Peter captured the expansive Great Room and its architectural details, the oversize Master Bedroom, and all the other rooms and 7 acres of grounds with a skill and creativity that brought in more interested visitors that any previous realtor. They were also open to using our own photographs of the house in different seasons and times of day which, especially for the outside pool, offered a more comprehensive look at the property. Then, with a sale pending, Dawn Preziosi - handling closing logistics - was always responsive, returning calls within hours if not answering immediately, and offering advice to address all the many items that need addressing when a home has wells, a septic system and the Twp has lots of permitting and CO requirements. On all that, Dawn was excellent, and Kaitlin in Sue's main office kept things moving forward. Sue herself suggested staging our basement, which we'd been using as a home office, and making it feel more livable. That also worked, but - of course - her professional advice as to setting the right price at the right time of year was critical. Lastly we feel her team's special expertise at servicing the "MidTown Direct" communities of Short Hills, Summit, etc., brought in a larger and broader set of potential Buyers than any previous realtor. For all those reasons, we're happy to recommend the Adler Team, and hope your experiences are as happy and successful as ours.
My wife Mary Jane and I worked with Amy Esposito to purchase our home in Glen Ridge, NJ. We originally met Amy in the fall of 2018 through a work colleague of Mary Jane and we quickly realized that Amy was going to be a good fit. Our search started in Madison and Chatham, NJ. Amy lived in Madison and provided a tremendous amount of local knowledge about the surrounding towns and the schools as our daughters are 4 and 2 and that was our top priority. We spent most of 2019 looking at homes but decided that we were not ready to make the jump from Hoboken to the burbs. Amy encouraged us to take our time and always kept us updated on any changes in the market after we stopped our search in the summer of 2019. In early 2020 we found a home that really appealed to us in Glen Ridge. We are both from the area, but didn't think that moving back was going to work for us financially given that higher property taxes. We fell in love with the home after an open house and submitted a bid 2 days later. We knew it would be a competitive process and Amy did a lot of research on prices in the area and where homes were sold for vs. the list price as most homes in the town are underpriced to create a bidding war. Amy had us write a personal letter to the sellers and included one of her own. Out of 10 bids, ours was second highest and we were chose because the couple liked our letter, profile and that Amy and their agent worked well together. After we went under contract, Amy worked seamlessly with us through the inspection since it was an older home. She made sure we addressed our concerns with the sellers and advocated for us with their agent around some items we found during inspection. We are now in our new home and are very happy. Buying our forever home was a long process and a bit scary given the financial outlay, but we had Amy as our advocate to guide us through the process. I highly recommend Amy to anyone looking for a home. Her knowledge, personality and her care for her clients shows and our family is happy in our new home because of it.
Jan was very helpful and easy to work with! Very easy to get in touch with! There was no pressure at all and always advise or suggestion when we needed some. She met with us multiple times, so we can get some more details on our future house.
