Buying or selling a home can be a daunting and stressful experience. But when you have a great support team in your corner, the stress level is seemingly more manageable. Donna Warters of Weichert Realtors was the support we needed; she wonderful to work with. She was extremely professional, friendly and caring. Her knowledge of the real estate business is unfathomable. My husband and I had been seeing Donna’s (Weichert Realtors) “For Sale” and “Sold” signs all over our neighborhood and surrounding areas for the entire time we lived in our home of 17 years. We thought, she must be the only realtor working! We knew that when it came time to sell our home, we would definitely give her a call. We wanted to downsize from our single family home in South River to a townhouse. From the moment we met Donna, she made us feel like it was already a done deal. The process from start to finish was not easy; however, Donna worked with us to make sure we did everything we needed to do to make our home more attractive to potential buyers. Our home sold in February 2017. We decided to wait before purchasing our next home. In July 2017, we contacted Donna to assist us in purchasing a townhouse. We expressed to her that we were interested in purchasing a bank-owned property. She explained to us that purchasing a bank-owned (Fannie Mae) property was a lot different than purchasing a home in the usual manner. If the process was indeed different, we certainly didn’t know it, because Donna and our attorney worked feverishly together behind the scenes to stay abreast of the Seller’s (Fannie Mae) strict demands, deadlines, inspections, etc. We closed on our property in Old Bridge in September 2017. As far as my husband and I are concerned, purchasing a bank-owned property was no different than purchasing a property in the usual manner (this is our 4th home purchase). Maybe we were a little naïve about the bank-owned purchase process and maybe we didn’t understand the many pitfalls associated with this type of purchase. But then again, be that as it may,t hat is exactly the reason why you hire only the best! Kudos to Donna, her assistant Aaron, and her entire team. Thank you all for a job well done.
