COMMENTS FROM CLIENTS

Dear Edie,

"After the August 28th closing on my house which you sold for me, I am so pleased with the transaction! For the second time in my experience you have "blown the competition away". You never leave any detail unanswered and return every call. Since you sold my first home I knew from experience that "the best in the business" was again on the job for me!

This second sale came with a property line dispute through which you listened, returned my calls and added helpful ideas. You never let a detail drop for which I was grateful. During busy times for you, Bob showed up at our door, calling first and taking care of business. It is a pleasure to be double teamed by "Spouses Selling Houses"!

Sincere thanks,
Gail Mazourek


"I want to pass along a huge "thank you" for your professionalism and your perseverance. I am more than certain that this sale took much longer than any of us anticipated. Through the highs and lows over the past few months, Sharon and I very much appreciated your up-beat attitude and constant, reassuring demeanor. Sharon and I are very grateful that we chose such a professional from such a professional organization as Audrey Edelman Real Estate. We hope that we never sell our new home, but if we do, we know who we'll call. Thanks again."

Dave


"Many thanks for your ever-thoughtful help, suggestions, insights, diligence and persistence in the face of all odds! That made it possible for me to move into my new home today."

Best regards,
John Clinton


"Just a note to express our thanks for your Realtors, Edie and Bob Spaulding, who sold our [family] estate for us and our own property this past January. Edie and Bob did an excellent job and were also very thoughtful and kind in every way. Even though they were quite busy, I felt that I could call them at any time to answer questions and clear up any of our concerns. It was a real pleasure to have them as our agents."

Sincerely,
D.W. Parks


Dear Edie and Bob,

"I can never say thank you enough for selling the house so quickly. Both of you deserve more than a thank you. I know how hard you worked and I remember the night Edie promised the buyer she would drive to my house so the purchase agreement got signed that night. I hope you both know what special people you are."

"Thank you for all your help with my new home purchase. Everything went so smoothly! And the extra effort you put in was greatly appreciated. The kids and I have now moved in and are enjoying our new home."

"We would like to recognize Bob Spaulding as an outstanding Real Estate Professional.

Bob has represented us on three transactions to date which include the sale of our Ithaca home when we relocated (sadly) to Philadelphia and two subsequent purchases of income properties in Ithaca. During each of these transactions Bob gave the highest level of service, demonstrated a keen understanding of our needs, and always, often without request, ensured that our interests were fully considered and acted upon.

Bob acted as a business partner as we worked to close on our income properties in the City of Ithaca. Bob, and his wife Edie, began to show us properties for potential purchase as early as 1999 (we left Ithaca in '98). Bob was always available to work with us, sometimes on short notice, whenever we were vacationing in Ithaca. Finally we determined that we could no longer wait for the perfect property with interest rates so favorable. Bob opened lines of communication with an owner who had listed a property the year earlier but had taken it off market as his price could not be met. Becoming a landlord was a big shift for us from the standpoint of both investment strategy and role (we had rented in Ithaca ourselves for the better part of our stay).

Bob became more than a real estate agent during and prior to the transactions. He truly became a business partner, in a consultative sense. Clearly he had a stake in the outcome of the transaction but he always focused on providing analytical tools and data that would help us evaluate the potential of our purchase. He was relentless in pursuing tax, sewer, water, rental income, and other information that helped us understand what we needed to achieve following close to see a profit on the properties.

Each transaction had its complications, whether intransigent sellers or complicated repairs to be negotiated and completed prior to close. Again, Bob was diligent and diplomatic in his management of these particulars which allowed successful close despite what in one transaction was a very unusual (we're told) attorney/attorney confrontation.

In short, we wouldn't think of working with another Agent. Your agency is known for having the best talent in Tompkins County, despite the higher expectations that follow, Bob more than exceeds these. Please accept our sincere thanks and gratitude for the services rendered."

Sincerely,

Brian and Rebecca


"Thank you for helping me find my dream. It's just what I wanted."

Sincerely,
Paula


"Many many thanks for your diligence and perserverance in marketing the property in Catherine. We acknowledge your steadfastness and appreciate your efforts in consumating a sale on not one but both parcels."

Carol & Jill


"Thanks for making our dreams come true."
