Sellers-Buyers: David & Shelly Forester – Bought & Sold in Westfield NJ
I am very glad we hired Teri as our agent. She knows the Westfield NJ area and what “customer service” is all about. She listens carefully and then gives you great ideas for selling at the best price. Most important, she sold our Westfield house in 14 days for nearly full price. Then she spent several days and evenings negotiating an excellent contract for us with the builder who was building our new home in Westfield!
Sellers: Megan & Jim Ross – Sold in Scotch Plains; bought in Mountainside NJ
We’ve bought and sold 4 homes in the past 15 years, so we know the process. Our daughter was our realtor for the last 2 homes, but she moved to California last year. We asked her to recommend an agent and she recommended Teri (even though Teri is with a different agency!) She said Teri would pull out all the stops to sell our Scotch Plains home and would negotiate a really good deal for us in Mountainside . And she was right!
Buyers: Louis & Roseann Rissi – Sold in Mountainside NJ
We asked to meet with Teri Malone because she listed and sold our neighbor’s property and we noticed she had a lot of good reviews online. We are so glad we did! Teri was very professional. She had a stager come to our home to get it ready — and Teri paid the Stager! Then, she put our home on every website — and sold it in just 4 days for full price! Lastly, Teri arranged for us to meet a top Realtor in another state where we were moving to, and followed up repeatedly to make sure we were being taken care of. It was like having an extra pair of hands — and “a relative in the business.” We’ll never forget Teri; she sets the bar pretty high and lives up to every expectation.
Sellers-Buyers: Marie & Jared Marks – Bought & Sold in Clark NJ
Teri really knows her stuff. When we wanted to sell our home, and buy another, we asked around. Teri was recommended by 2 of our friends as the “go to” Realtor in the Clark NJ area. We’d heard about some “selling nightmares” and could not believe how smooth Teri made the whole process BTW, our house was under contract in 29 days and Teri negotiated the sale so we got almost what we asked for it! Meantime, she found us the perfect house across town! Teri is now a special friend and we will always recommend her.
Buyers: Ramal Patel – Bought in Edison NJ
When we met Teri we told her we were looking for a new construction in north Edison. We are both physicians so we have little time to peruse the market. Teri was diligent in her search and ultimately found the right property and the right builder. She spent many evenings helping us to modify the plans, making suggestions and generally “making it work.” We now live in our dream home and Teri is the reason! Teri is the best and we will recommend her to anyone who wants a knowledgable, professional Realtor.
Excerpts from earlier “fan mail” to, and about, Teri Malone
SELLERS: “Mr. Tekel, I’m in the banking industry and I work with professionals all day long. Even so, I’ve rarely met someone as dedicated and professional as your agent, Teri Malone. When my wife and I got the 3rd low offer on our Westfield NJ home, we were ready to take it. Teri said to wait, that she had some ideas. She sent a brochure to the attorneys in town, and it worked, bringing a nearly full-price offer! Like she promised, Teri looked out for us and wouldn’t give up — even when we were ready to. I congratulate you on having someone so worthy of the title “professional.” —– David & Maida Brock
SELLERS: “My wife and I have moved 7 times and I’ve never met a more professional Real Estate Agent than Teri Malone. We barely had to tell Teri anything; she knew what to do to get our house on the market and sold it in just 45 days. And my wife said Teri was one of the easiest people to work with. Teri will be our first call if we have to move again!” —– Jeff Markhaan
SELLERS/BUYERS: We found out the hard way that sellers don’t want to sell to you if you have to sell another property in order to buy. Our last agent was pretty blase about the whole process and as a result we lost the Clark NJ house we wanted. When we hired Teri, she assured us she would pull out all the stops to keep this from happening again. She was as good as her word — even managing to coordinate the closings. Teri is the best and we’ll surely call on her again the next time we move. —– Margaret & Seth Winscott
SELLERS: “Teri, just wanted you to know that I have emailed my entire address book and told my friends “If you’re thinking of selling, don’t make a move until you talk to Teri Malone. She is a very caring realtor who will not promise you the world unless she can deliver — which most likely she can!” —– Jenny Abraham
SELLERS/BUYERS: “Selling one home and buying another would have been a nightmare without Teri Malone. Not only did she negotiate a great price for our new Scotch Plains NJ home, she sold our old one for $42,000 more than we asked for it. Awesome!” —– Glen & Alicia Forrester
SELLERS/BUYERS: “Teri Malone sold me my first home in Westfield NJ and handled all the details so efficiently that when I got married and wanted to move to a bigger house in Westfield, again I called Teri. She was incredible and negotiated the “deal of the century” for us. We closed in just 5 weeks!” —— Rose & Rodney Roth
SELLERS: “Teri, as you know, before we met you, we interviewed 2 other realtors. One said she would list our Scotch Plains NJ home for $650,000; the other thought he could sell it for around $700,000. Thankfully, our friend Pam suggested we call you. I still can’t believe you talked us into listing it for $800,000, and I can tell you we were very nervous about that — until, of course, you sold it for $792,000 in just 32 days! We are recommending you to all our friends.” —– Maira & Louis Campbell
BUYERS: “Teri’s commitment to her clients is awe-inspiring. Even after our first offer fell through and we were ready to give up, Teri searched for 3 months and found us our dream home. Then she sold our old home for full price in just 2 weeks!” —– Joanne Eckert
SELLERS: “Can’t imagine ever using another realtor but Teri Malone. Not only did she get us 3 full-price offers for our Clark NJ home, she even sat at our new house to wait for the gas company and water company so we’d have utilities when we got home from work on the day we closed! Teri Malone is not just a realtor, she’s a friend.” —– Maira Edmunds
SELLERS: “Teri, I want to reiterate what I told you last week. You are a real professional. Bill and I were astonished at how rude and abrasive our buyer’s realtor was. And we could hardly believe how gentle you were when you explained that the changes the buyers wanted were their responsibility. We are so glad we hired you to sell our house!” —– Bill & Heather Markel
BUYERS: “Teri, as I write this, the kids are out in the yard and Jim is at his new office. But I wanted to let you know that you made the whole moving thing so easy. I don’t know if you realized it, but I really dreaded moving again — 3rd time in 5 years! I had even thought about trying to get Jim to turn down the new job offer! I am so glad Marie recommended you to us (I even sent her flowers) because it was apparent from the start that you really cared — and now that the dust has settled, I’m just loving the beautiful home in Westfield NJ you found for us. Thank you so much!” —– Allison Grayly
SELLERS: “Teri put our Cranford NJ home on the market just a few days before Thanksgiving. She sent out flyers and advertised it, and then put up about 25 Open House signs. She got 52 people to come to the Open House and sold it that night! We wanted to close before Christmas, and Teri got it done. Teri Malone is the best!” —– Heather & Marc Olden
BUYERS: “Coming from the midwest, I didn’t know what to expect real estate-wise in NJ. Your agent, Teri Malone, was very patient with me and her knowledge of the Westfield NJ area is very thorough. We closed on our new home in July and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you for having such professionals on your staff.” —– Tamara Kausjam
SELLERS: “Initially, we tried to sell our Scotch Plains NJ town home on our own, but after a couple of weeks of only a few people looking at it, we were frustrated. We met Teri Malone at an Open House. Teri pointed out that with 6 other town homes on the market in our complex — most priced higher than ours — our home was under-priced, that buyers weren’t looking at it because they thought it probably wasn’t as nice as the higher-priced ones. We hired Teri and it was the best thing we ever did! She added $50,000 to the price and brought us a buyer at nearly full price within a 2 weeks.” —– Maggie & Bill Romeo
BUYERS: “Teri, thank you VERY much for suggesting that my daughter and her husband consider an upscale townhome in Watchung NJ instead of the 1900’s colonial that was charming but promised to be a money-pit. As you know, they are thrilled with their new “digs” and my wife and I are very grateful that they were working with you.” —– Jack Windham
SELLERS: “Teri Malone was not our realtor. When my wife and I decided to sell our Westfield NJ home of 35 years, we didn’t know Teri. We met Teri when she brought us a buyer, and we’re so glad we did. When things came up in the inspection, Teri got us repair people and made sure everything was taken care of. We now know it matters who you hire as a realtor, and we want you to know that Teri Malone is one of the few caring professionals out there.” —– Wm & Joan Needham
SELLERS: “You are to be congratulated on having such a professional staff of people at your Westfield NJ office. Starting with Teri Malone, whose fantastic marketing ideas brought us a stellar offer for our home, to your mortgage guy who arranged for our buyer’s mortgage and made sure we closed on time. My attorney agrees with me, saying that he’s rarely had a deal go so smoothly. I will recommend your office, and Teri Malone especially, to everyone I know.” —– Carl Dering
SELLERS: Teri, thank you so much for all your help in getting our Westfield NJ home ready to sell. I still can’t believe you got Ed to do all those repairs (I’d tried for years without success!), and I know that’s the only reason our home sold so quickly and for full price. We’re starting to settle in here in Seattle, and I almost don’t miss Westfield — almost!” —– Nancy Edelson
BUYERS: “Mr Tekel: When we met Teri Malone, we were looking for a house. Instead, we found a wonderful agent. And now she, Teri, has found us the perfect home in Mountainside NJ. She has our gratitude and respect forever. Just wanted you to know.” —— Paula and Ken Rotkewitz
