Testimonials

When my wife and I moved out of New York city in the city of Rye in the late 90's, we were extremely fortunate to retain Fran Buckley as our real estate agent. Finding and purchasing a suitable home in a highly desired community like Rye is very challenging - the city's strong school system, great public facilities, and first-class infrastructure and municipal services guarantee the inventory of homes on the market move quickly. As an agent, Fran listened carefully to what our interests were for a house in which to raise our three boys. She worked on our behalf tirelessly, showing us every home that come on the market that fit our budget and met our desires. She also kept us informed on the market movements and all home sales, so that we would better understand the dynamics of the local real estate market. When we eventually found the house we've now lived in for the past 15 years, Fran moved with amazing speed and precision, locking down the deal for us before many agents were even aware the property was on the market. Over the years, we've introduced Fran to several of our friends who also moved out of the city, and they all have the highest regard for Fran's professionalism and dedication to fer clients. She will do what is best for her clients, and readily shares her depth of real estate knowledge and of the community. More recently, I retained Fran to represent me in the sale of my part's co-op in the MIlton Harbor House. The sale of a co-op presents unique challenges, as the prospective buyer bust be a good fit within the cooperative establishment. Additionally, an estate sale requires an extra level of diligence to ensure both the buyer and the seller are protected during the process. Once again, Fran delivered, first in putting together a highly effective selling strategy, setting an appealing price, then expertly marketing the property to excite prospective buyers and generate bids. Her speed of execution and ability to gauge interest resulted in a purchase price higher than my already aggressive goal. I cannot reccomend Fran highly enough, any buyer or seller who retains her as an agent will not be disappointed.

Fran Buckley was very professional and proactive in acting as our agent in the sale of our house and the purchase of a condominium. She is a good listener, who knows the local market well and brings the resources of her firm as well as her own experience to each step of the process from listing to closing and beyond.
