From the moment Jane came to our house to discuss a market analysis, she set herself apart fro other agents. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Yonkers market, made wonderful suggestions about how to best present our home, and recommended a sales price based on thorough research and experience. Throughout the process, Jane was responsive and accessible. She returned phone calls and emails quickly, and communicated feedback and information as soon as she received it. Once we had an acceptable offer and then a contract, Jane was very helpful in walking us through the steps that led to our closing. Jane’s talents and experience, combined with the resources available through her association with Houlihan Lawrence, are a winning combination.
Alison S (former owner of 70 Sunnyside Drive, Yonkers)
Jane, all I can say is “You are remarkable.” I said this to my wife Linda after our first meeting. I knew that you were the exact person we would need to get through all the hurdles that lay ahead of us. I was deeply touched by the diligence and personal effort you provided without any hesitation. You amazed me how you worked through and around the difficulties at the building department and was able to bring everything to fruition. Your timely advice and recommendations were invaluable to the sale of the house. I believe that without your professionalism, we would not have received the numerous excellent offers you presented. Jane, you were flawless. Please feel free to use me as a reference. I will recommend you highly.
Dominic G (former owner of 6 Yonkers Terrace, Yonkers)
Dear Jane, I can’t thank you enough for everything you did in taking care of the sale of my Dad’s house. You are one of the few people I know that truly does everything you say you will do. I have 200% trust in you and limitless respect. You have made what could have been a very trying and difficult process for me---painless. This was the house I grew up in and it was important for me that everything related to the sale of the house was done with honor and professionalism. After having the honor of working with you, I cannot say enough about all your attributes. If ANYONE is having a hard time deciding whether or not they should use you as their broker, please have them call me.
Jeff K (son of former owner of 9 Wendover Road, Yonkers)
Jane, we want to thank you for your service on both ends of our recent real estate transition. Your level of service is without parallel in our experience. Your website and your knowledge of the market are reflective of first-class service and dedication to your profession. Another way in which you stand head and shoulders above the competition is your understanding of the psychology of the home purchase, and the relationship between demand and emotion. We look forward to many years in our new house, and thank you again for dealing with all the lawyers and service people to keep the ball rolling and the closings on schedule.
Jon B and Kelle K (former sellers of 30 Hillcrest Avenue and buyers of 105 Undercliff Street, Yonkers)
Jane, thank you so much for all your help. I couldn’t have asked for a better broker. No matter what issue came up, you handled it with ease and grace. You were so sensitive to my grieving and aging issues. Although it was a stressful time for me, you did your very best to anticipate any problems that might come up and eased the path for me. I could not believe how cheerfully the closing went. That was all your doing!
Mary V (former owner of 161 Homewood Avenue, Yonkers)
As we settle into our new way of living, let me say a heartfelt thank you for the way you helped us through the whole daunting process of selling the home we had lived in for the past 40 years. When you met with us that first evening and explained the process and your services to us, I was nearly overwhelmed. I had no idea it was so complicated to sell a house. If it hadn’t been for your reassurance that you knew your way through the labyrinth of the market, the city’s regulations and codes, and the psyche of buyers, we could never have managed. You were more than a Realtor and neighbor; you were our mainstay as we worked our way through all the glitches from a buried oil tank to an open permit from 60 years ago. We were particularly delighted with the way you presented our house on your website. You had so many channels and ways to reach the potential market, it was awesome to us. Your contacts with lawyers, shipping companies, thrift shops, etc were also useful. We practically lived out of your information packet for a few months. And then, in helping us prepare for the complexities of the closing, you sane and experienced advice saved us for all kinds of difficulties and setbacks. Jane, it is really hard to express how much we appreciated your part in our lives through this very difficult transition.
Margaret and Byron S (former owners of 16 Madeline Parkway, Yonkers)
Jane, I want to thank you for the outstanding job you did in marketing our house. From the moment we met you, we knew we were in the hands of a professional. The strategic plan you developed to reach potential buyers was comprehensive and effective. The presentation materials you developed were interesting and thorough. The photos on your website presented our home beautifully. Of particular value were your suggestions on how best to prepare our home for prospective buyers. Jane, we will always be grateful for your responsiveness to our many questions and concerns. Your wisdom, warmth and optimism were invaluable.
George B (former owner of 84 Franklin Avenue, Yonkers)
Jane, I wanted to thank you for all your help in bringing this difficult sale to a closing, I can honestly say that in all my years of practice, I have never encountered a broker who worked so hard and capably to see that everything was completed for the closing. Thank you again and I will certainly recommend you without hesitation.
Peter P (Attorney for the former owner of 126 Ritchie Drive, Yonkers)
Jane, we would like to express our thanks for a job well done. Your listing work related to the successful sale of our mother’s home clearly demonstrated a high degree of honesty, consideration, and professionalism. Our apparent challenge of selling this home from a remote state was overcome through your diligence and experience, acting as our local agent and representative. We quickly achieved a very satisfactory sale price in what can only be described as a very difficult housing market. Thanks again for this successful and very pleasant business experience.
Chris and Elaine C (daughter and son-in-law of former owner of 213 Van Cortlandt Park Avenue, Yonkers)
I closed on my home at 78 Rockland Avenue, Yonkers, and my Realtor was Jane McAfee. In my history of buying and selling, I have never encountered a finer real estate agent than Jane. Not only was she cheerful and cooperative but she orchestrated the entire selling process flawlessly. Jane responded to our every request promptly and efficiently. She is a true professional and a great asset to her company.
Peter S (former owner of 78 Rockland Avenue, Yonkers)
I recently sold a home I owned in Yonkers and Jane McAfee was the Realtor I selected to represent me. Jane had a daunting task because I live in Colorado and the house in Yonkers had several problems we had to work through. Jane sent me an information packet and I was impressed even before I met her and felt she was the right person to list my house. She was incredibly responsive when I had questions which was important since I was not in the local area. I felt Jane guided me through the process with sound strategic planning and clear direction for getting the property listed and sold. As a result of her experience, she has many resources at her disposal and could get me the help I needed. The home was under contract within two weeks of being listed. In addition to all of Jane’s real estate knowledge, I found her to be enthusiastic and a positive thinker and I would highly recommend Jane to anyone that is thinking of selling a home.
Claire B (former owner of 95 Dunwoodie Street, Yonkers)
Dear Jane, I want to thank you for the tremendous job you did marketing and selling my brother's house in the Park Hill section of Yonkers. I could call on you at anytime (and anywhere!) with a question, problem or request, and you always had an answer, found a solution (even if it meant doing it yourself), and honored my request. From finding a junk man to knowing your way around Yonkers City Hall, to recommending an extremely reliable moving company at a fair price --- you had it all covered. You are a knowledgeable, experienced and trustworthy professional who is totally committed to her clients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this emotionally difficult job somewhat painless and always exciting. You are the barometer by which I will forever judge all other real estate agents. You are a valuable treasure to your chosen field, your neighborhood and your community.
Toni-Anne L (Executrix for 17 Glenbrook Avenue, Yonkers)
This letter is to let you know just how wonderful Jane McAfee was in selling my Mom’s home. Jane came to our initial meeting well prepared and her plan was both extensive and effective. My Mom’s home sold within the week. But this is not what makes Jane stand out from the rest of Realtors out there. There were problems with the City of Yonkers involved in selling the house. Jane had a list of professionals to help us get through this difficult and tedious process. Jane stayed on top of the situation and took all the stress off my Mom and the rest of the family. We felt we were truly taken care of. If you are questioning hiring Jane to sell your property, stop right now. She will do whatever is necessary to get you to the closing. I cannot rave enough about how well she took care of us. She is a professional who knows her job and knows how to do it right.
Joanne C (daughter of former owner of 52 Hearthstone Road, Yonkers)
I know when we retained you as our Realtor, to sell our English Tudor, that your expertise would make the sale easier. You helped us every step of the way. You demonstrated an abundance of energy and enthusiasm which was a pleasure to see, No challenge was too big in dealing with inspectors, contractors, plumbers, and electricians to insure that we received the Certificate of Occupancy prior to the closing date. Your personal intervention with the Yonkers employees to the C of O to its final conclusion is deeply appreciated.
Ed and Lucille A (former owners of 81 Ridge Drive, Yonkers)
It only took a moment, and I knew that I had selected the right real estate agent to sell my home. Your enthusiasm and expertise in knowing what had to be done, from securing a C of O, to rearranging furniture, painting, etc., was right on target. As a widow, I found it comforting selecting people and companies you listed for repairing my home at reasonable costs. Many thanks to you, Jane, for making it all so simple. I anticipated spending more time in Yonkers….but with Jane at the helm, I am moving on. If you are interested in selling your home, I suggest you call Jane McAfee because one your home is in Jane’s care, all you have to do is sit back and relax. Who could ask for anything more? Thank you, Jane, for all the energy, enthusiasm, and work you put into marketing and selling my home.
Patricia D (former owner of 22 Birch Road, Yonkers)
When both our folks passed away within a year’s time, we were faced with the task of selling our home in Yonkers while residing 300 miles away. To say that you the process a “piece of cake” is putting it mildly. Your attention to detail, outstanding service, and promptness in finding us a buyer was exceptional. I can’t express enough what an outstanding job you did in finding us a buyer and getting us through the process while we were so far away from the action. Please feel free to use this letter as a whole-hearted endorsement of your services. Thanks again, Jane, for making the sale of our family home an easy, delightful experience.
Richard F (Executor for 57 Bretton Road, Yonkers)
Jane, now that the house has sold, I just wanted to offer you a sincere thank you for everything you've done. I didn't have the highest opinion of your profession before we met. Based on some of our past experiences, and with everything on the Internet, it seemed like real estate agents were making a lot of money for not a lot of work. You totally changed my perception. The amount of energy and time you put into this sale was remarkable. You are so terrific at your job. We wouldn't have been able to sell the house without you. I honestly can't thank you enough. With much gratitude…
Jeremy B (former owner of 183 Scarsdale Road, Tuckahoe P.O./Yonkers)
Jane, I just want to thank you for all of the work you put in to selling our house. You were absolutely amazing dealing with all of the different issues that popped up, and I honestly cannot thank you enough. I do not think we would have sold the house without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Lynne B (former owner of 183 Scarsdale Road, Tuckahoe P.O./Yonkers)
