"Dear Mr. Pilato

In regards to: Barbara Grumme

When my husband and I first set out to find a Real Estate agent and put our house on the market we had checked out a number of agents. We really didn’t think a Real Estate agent would make a difference but e new that we needed our house to be on the MLS listing to get the best exposure. We had never met Barbara before but when we first met her we were sold right away with her genuine personality, educational background and previous experience. Barbara was unlike any other agent right from the start. When first meeting with her the first thing she asked us was, what is the most important part of the house to us and where do we spend most of our time? Right then we know she was different because she cared about how we felt about our home and anted to get the feeling of what type of person to target that would be looking for the same thing. After going through the house with Barbara, my husband and I only had to look at each other and we know that she was the person we wanted to sell our house. We were told by agents that would take at least 6 months or more to sell a house in this price range. Not only did Barbara sell our home but she listed and sold it in less than 3 months as well as getting 2 other listings at the same time. Our house was very advertised and she spend a lot of time preparing for the VIP open house which had a good turn out and ended up with a lead. Barbara was always easy to get a hold of when we called and she handled our hissy fits professionally when we weren’t happy with something or someone (Not her).

            Barbara is an exceptional agent that we are pleased to know and you are fortunate to have her on your staff. The pleasant manner to which she greets every person is extremely uplifting. My husband and I are grateful for the total dedication that she displayed in the sale of our home. Barbara is an agent that I would highly recommend to anyone selling their home and I already have.
