JANINE’S HAPPY CLIENTS
“I wanted to send you a personal email to let you know how truly happy I was to work with Janine. I recently listed my condo located at 106 Central Park South with Janine. She researched the building comps and came up with a price that was appropriate. I got a full cash offer within a matter of days. During negotiations, the sellers wanted some credits which Janine handled beautifully. I sell real estate myself in Connecticut and I can tell the difference between a professional agent and a poor one. I told Janine that I will recommend her should anyone in my office need a NY agent. Your company is very lucky to have such a professional on their team! ”
“Simply put - Janine Ballato is an outstanding agent. I hope my story will demonstrate the outstanding service Janine provided. We came to meet in the wake of a tragedy - my mother passed away unexpectedly and was the owner of 3 condominiums in NYC all of which were more than 20 years old. I have siblings that reside in three different states and we decided that it simply did not make sense for us to attempt to manage the properties. The task fell upon me to find an agent. I live across the country and had to try to find someone who was experienced, would work hard and could manage a transaction with executors in 3 different states - all without the benefit of any face to face interaction. I called a number of agents and they gave me their respective pitches. Janine impressed me with her intimate knowledge of the building, he no-nonsense appraisal of the value of the condominiums and what would need to be done to sell them and a guarantee that she would work to handle all issues connected with the sale. She fullfilled her promise and then some. She dealt with condo association in gathering all the signatures necessary for showing the condos. At the same time dealing with some trying tenants that were not thrilled with the prospect of moving out. She dealt with the contractors that needed to provide cosmetic work. When it came time to negotiate a final sales price - we couldn''t have had a better advocate in our corner. She worked day and night (literally - I have the emails and texts to prove it) dealing with many offers to get the best prices for all three condos. She dealt with our real estate lawyers in one state and our estate lawyers in another and helped faciliate getting all the signatures from all of us for closing all three properties. She made what could have been an excruciatingly painful process completely workable because of her exceptional experience and who she is as a person. Although my mother''s passing was the heartbreak that connected us, I feel fortunate that our path''s crossed and I recommend her without hesitation. ”
