My husband and I recently closed on a beautiful home in Short Hills, a success in no small part due to our fortune in working with Abby Tanzer from the Sue Adler Team. Despite the adverse circumstances (COVID, timing, etc) Abby's unique combination of professionalism and personal touch relaxed the process and, in my opinion, was most responsible for us making the home of our dreams a reality. Abby is thoroughly versed in NJ real estate and is clearly in tune with the rapid evolution of the market during the pandemic. She patiently takes the time to catalogue her clients' desires and understands that buying a home is more than an agreement and an exchange of money. Every house she showed us was informed by our tastes and extrapolated from our reasons for leaving Brooklyn for New Jersey. Abby was objective and helpful when we toured homes, not once pushing us into a decision before we were ready, and always available if we needed to talk or return to a property that we liked for further review. Given the number of folks moving over the past year or so and how busy she must be, both my wife and I were blown away by the level of attention Abby's work ethic enables her to provide. After we got into contract, Abby was able to lend a similar level of care and expertise, helping with coordination (inspector, etc) all the way to the final walkthru. In short, we are ever so grateful to have been shepherded through the process by Abby and would unquestionably recommend her to anyone who would ask.
When we decided to sell our home of 15 years during a pandemic, we knew we needed Laurie to represent us. Laurie had been showing us homes in the area for a number of years (we were local and only looking opportunistically), so we got to know her well and always appreciated her deep market knowledge and responsiveness but even more, her genuine care for her clients. We knew she would handle our biggest transaction - the sale of our family home -- with the same care and professionalism. Boy were we right! Laurie and her team exceeded our high expectations! Laurie oversaw every detail of the sale, including ensuring the safety of our family and home. She was professional, prepared, candid, fair, and never pushy. She did extensive research to make sure she recommended the correct listing price for our home (not just a low price that assured a quick sale) and then diligently (and successfully) pursued getting that price. Her judgment at all turns was superb and she and her team made the process virtually effortless. She got us to a successful closing within 2 months of listing our home. At every turn, she was there. We were privileged to have worked with her and her team!
Abby was a pleasure to work with while buying our first home. During our initial phone call she took the time to understand our needs and lay out exactly what she’d do to help us find the home of our dreams. Throughout the home search process, Abby was very quick to point out things about the houses we were looking at that we didn’t necessarily notice (both good things and bad things). She took the time to understand us and find us a house that fit all of our needs and desires. Abby was extremely knowledgeable about the areas we were looking in and it was clear she was very familiar with the real estate market in these areas. Once we were ready to put an offer on a house, she gave us a bunch of tips on how to make our offer more attractive. Once the offer was accepted, she walked us through the rest of the process up to and including the closing. She was extremely responsive throughout the process and always made us feel like we were a priority. We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent and would recommend Abby to anyone who asked.
