Dear Jeff, Thank you so much for your help with the sale of my home. Your amazing market savvy was essential to find the right buyer for my home and maximize the offers on the property. My neighbors were impressed. You even set a price record for the neighborhood and set the standard for professional excellence. Other brokers I talked with thought they couldn’t even ask the price you were able to get. If I had gone with someone else, I could have cost myself almost $100,000. But, you knew the market and how to capitalize on it better than anyone. The proof is in the quick sale and the price we closed on. Your track record of success for your clients speaks for itself, but I can best speak about my experience working with you. In every aspect of marketing my home and closing the sale, you handled every detail and looked out for my best interests as if I were family. I can’t recommend you highly enough to my friends and family when they need help with real estate. Sincerely, Randall

We want to thank you for your efforts on our behalf in the sale of our condo. It is especially appreciated that on your advice, we enlisted the services of one of your associates familiar with our condo building. We sincerely believe that in all cased, you serve the best interests of your clients.

First, we appreciated the extensive marketing that you did on our behalf. We had misfortune of selling in the midst of a very bad economy and also in a market that was crowded in our range. We know that our house was particularly challenging because the yard was quite a bit smaller than other houses in the sam price range. As a result, the house was on the market quite a long time. Yet, because of the marketing you did – brochures, flyers, agent walk – through, open houses – the traffic through the house continued to be strong for several months until the right buyer saw the property. We appreciated the professionalism and the effort this required. Over and above this, we were especially grateful for the outstanding customer service you provided. We were living out of the country during most of the time the house was on the market. As a result, we were very dependent on your help when the water heater leaked, the back door knob needed repair, and other items needed maintenance. You were great about connecting us to professionals in your network who could help us, and we were very thankful that you were willing to let these people into the house to complete their work and then re-secure the house when they finished up. Something that could’ve been very challenging from 6000 miles away ended up being very simple. We are now in our dream house. We hop we are there a long time. But if something unforeseen happens in the future, we would not hesitate to ask for your help selling our house. In the meantime, we would be delighted to serve as references for you with any prospective clients.
Merci beaucoup! Tres bien! I am happy to hear that everything went through. Both Jeff and I want to extend our sincere and heartfelt thanks for all that you have done for marketing our home, showing it, keeping us informed on buyer interest and all the back and forth e-mails that had to transpire across the ocean for this to happen. Jeff you are a wonder! How do you manage all that you do AND keep yourself and family sane? You are truly the backbone that holds it all together. Thanks again. We hope to do business with you again (but not on my W. Prospect property – I plan to die there!!)

Thank you for not selling our house. We know that’s an odd way to start a letter of thanks to a real estate agent. But we want you to know how grateful we are to you for your efficiency, your professionalism and, especially, your kindness as our plans to move fell apart just as our house went on the market. You made a difficult time for us immeasurably easier.

As an out of state seller you know how important it is to have professional people handle our transaction. Thank you, you filled that need! We truly appreciate your understanding of the market & our particular desires, a quick-hassle free sale, again you filled our need! If you ever need to get away form the big city for a few days of awesome fly fishing, give us a call, you have a place to stay. Thanks again!
I was very impressed by the way you represented us in our purchase of our new home. It is not easy to represent both buyer and seller in a home sale and I was very pleased with your ability to help negotiate the sale and follow through with the details for closing. More than anything else, however, I am very grateful for your willingness to continue to help with small details and problem after the sale was over and your commission was earned. It shows a real dedication to you clients.

On our behalf of my partner and myself, I want to thank your for outstanding service in the sale of our home on Queen Anne hill. As you recall, we were in a difficult situation dealing with two job transfers and a sudden need to put our house on the market, and I’m sure we were not unique in our wishes for quick sale at a fair price without a lot of work on our part. You mad that happen for us.
Katherine Koberg and Chris Rideout
We met you at the very first open house we wandered into, before we were seriously looking for a new house to buy. You impressed us right away with your knowledge of the market on Queen Anne Hill, your candor about the house, and the absence of any high-pressure sales pitch—either for the house or you own services. So naturally we remembered you when we got ready to buy. We discovered that you have a great team working with you. Unlike other realtors, your assistant, almost always answers the phone, a wonderful service for busy people who play too much phone tag already. Even when she had lots on her plate, her patient, calm demeanor made us feel like we were her highest priority when she was showing us houses. We were also really impressed by the escrow agent you use. When we found our dream house we got to see how much you’re superb negotiating skills saved us money. Plus, we just loved that you have so much fun in the process. The same was true when you listed our former home to sell. Your marketing plan is outstanding and when the house sold, you helped out with a lot of little details that were giving us headaches—a real blessing to anyone who’s overwhelmed by moving a household. Thanks for everything!
We are confident that no other agent could have done what you did for us on the captioned sale. Our only regret is that we didn’t follow your advice and list the home at the higher price you recommended.

We wholeheartedly endorse Jeff Valcik for any home sales needs. They are an absolutely fantastic team and have sold two houses for us. In both cases, Jeff clearly outlined the price ranges and how they fluctuated against various timelines and , in both cases, he was dead on, selling each home within a week…We should note that our second sale was a bit complicated as we were living in NY and had renters in the house that was being sold. They managed to make selling a home from across the country feel effortless. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
Your unique marketing of the house was an obvious benefit in getting such a fast (9 days) and full price offer, especially considering it was on week before Christmas. You may not have know this, but I interviewed several agents (a few from your own office) to find out what price I could reasonably market my home. The selling price range that you established was $30,000 to $40,000 higher than any of the other potential agents.
