Client Letters

Well done is better than well said. ~ Benjamin Frankin

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who took the time to write.

Each letter just reinforces how much I love doing what I do.

Sincerely,

Angelina Valentini Realtor | Consultant

Now that everything has settled down after the move and the holidays, I wanted to take some time to say thank you. Your hard work during the sale of my old home and the purchase of my new home was simply outstanding.

I’d like to start with your professional guidance in the sale of 32 Jeremy Drive, New Fairfield. To my absolute astonishment, I received an offer within 4 days of listing it. I had some reservations about selling and having to keep the house on the market in this environment, but to get an offer in 4 days was outstanding. Everyone I tell cannot believe this! I credit your knowledge of the local market and the real needs of sellers and buyers to have accomplished this feat.

Once the sale of 32 Jeremy was underway, we then moved on to house hunting with me and my 6 children. Again, you were very focused and considerate of the specific (and they were specific) requirements for the home we wanted. You never wasted our time – you showed us only what we wanted to see. You were always available whether in-person, on the phone, or via text. I always felt that you were there for us. When we finally found 7 Woods Way, we knew then that this was the house for us. Through your expertise, knowledge and negotiating skills, we were able to turn a challenging transaction into a reality.

Again, thank you so much for your help and believe me when I say that your name is the first words out of my mouth when people tell me they are considering a move. You are a true professional and more importantly, a good friend.

Warm regards,

SA, New Fairfield CT

I realized today was our “house-iversary” – eight months since we closed on our beautiful home “on the lane.”

So, I was reflecting back and thinking of all the hard work you put into making the transaction happen. You know me, I am still looking at houses because I’m a real estate junkie and want to know the market. You hit the nail on the head with pricing and negotiating us into an ownership situation I know is positive for us. It was a tough negotiation with a difficult seller. But you pulled us through and made it happen. I’m not sure we would have made it through the border dispute without your calm demeanor and true professional nature. Thank you.

Thanks, too, for the extra time and effort you put into making us feel at home in our new state. It was a really big change to leave Atlanta and since I was the “trailing spouse” it was often hard to imagine that it would all actually fall into place – and that I would actually live here in a home that we would love as much as we do.

I can’t say enough about the business partners you brought to the table – the home inspection company, the septic company, and especially the attorney who helped guide us through the surprise border issue. They were all exceptional.

You really understood us and what we really wanted – a vintage home. I still laugh about the day you said, “I’m not going to show you any more new construction colonials.” You were spot on and helped us realize the “one” was the one we saw the first day. You knew it and Paul knew it. But you persisted in showing me the listings I was interested in seeing on my many visits – because that’s what true service providers do.

I’m a branding consultant, as you know. And I have to say; you are representing the WSPIR brand in fine fashion. I am a strong believer in emotional branding and I preach it daily in my work. With real estate being one of the biggest emotional transactions a family encounters, I can honestly say the emotions we experienced throughout the process we’re good and healthy ones in large part because of you.

My “staircase to brand leadership” model includes “brand loyalty” and “brand equity”…two things companies pay dearly to achieve. You definitely delivered this client to the top of the stairs!

With warm personal regards,

P&T, Newtown CT

We listed our home with Angelina March 15th 2011. We closed June 6th 2011.

There were several things which Angelina did to separate herself from other agents. At our initial meeting she had a complete marketing plan for our home, a method for pricing the house properly, and valuable suggestions to help the house appeal to the most buyers.

Once we signed, she worked diligently to get the house seen by as many people as possible. Signs went up, advertisements were placed, and real estate caravans were arranged. After every showing, Angelina was quick to follow up and relay the information on to us. If we ever had a question for her, she was always open and up front with her answer. If we called her, she would return the call immediately or text us as to when she would be getting back to us. She was always available.

Within 6 weeks, we had a buyer. Angelina then switched to her “negotiator” hat, and worked diligently to get us the best price, terms and close date.

In summary, I would say Angelina is what every agent should be: professional, thorough, quick to respond and positive. When everybody was saying “nothing is selling” SHE DID IT!!

A very happy customer,

P&C, New Fairfield CT

Regarding my mother’s condo in Sterling Woods this past fall.

Given the situation which necessitated the sale, my mother’s passing in September, my family and I were faced with a number of issues in addressing my mother’s estate, including going through the condo and what were essentially the eighty four years of my mother’s life.

Words cannot express our thanks for your understanding and guidance in terms of preparing the condo for sale under these delicate circumstances.

As our neighbor, you were the first and only choice to represent us in the sale. Your knowledge of the market and understanding that we wanted to complete the sale quickly resulted in a first day offer for the asking price.

Additionally you were able to recommend local counsel who was not only able to handle the sale, but the probate issues as well, again with a complete understanding of the circumstances.

Finally, you were always available to answer any questions and offer assistance and input related to the sale and certain items that the buyer questioned with respect to the condition of the condo. These were all resolved to the satisfaction of everyone.

We are sincerely grateful for the manner in which you handled this entire situation.

Yours truly,

T&M, New Fairfield CT

It was a great pleasure working with you on the sale of our Candlewood Isle property. I don’t think anyone could have done more to represent and facilitate the sale of the house.

Your knowledge, professionalism, approach and attitude are impressive. Hopefully many more people will benefit, as we did, from your services and experience. lf we can be a reference for you in the future, we will be more than happy to let others know of how they will benefít from you and Sotheby’s Realty.

Thanks for all and we look forward to staying in touch.
G&G, New Fairfield CT

We recently purchased a wonderful home, and having you as our realtor really make the process a lot more enjoyable. Undoubtedly, the process of searching for and buying a new home can be stressful and overwhelming, however we were extremely pleased with the overall smoothness and timeliness you had brought to our transaction. We were especially impressed with your reliability and your willingness to go the extra mile to accommodate our requests, and it most certainly surpassed any and all expectations. Your performance was exceptional, and we will be recommending you to our friends and family in the future. Thank you so much for your hard work and commitment, we sincerely appreciate everything you have done for us, and it was an absolute pleasure working with you. We couldn’t be happier with our new home, and couldn’t have asked for a better agent to work with. We were truly blessed.
We wish you all the best in the future and thank you again for everything. We look forward to living many happy years in our new home and the dream you have most definitely helped come true. With sincere appreciation,
A&B, Brookfield CT


This letter is a letter of appreciation for your services this year. Right from the beginning, you were so professional. You spent time getting to know all of my family and taking a personal interest in our needs. You spent many hours showing us the “lay of the land”, discussing train stations and schedules, touring us around the area, etc. We went home knowing that we had chosen the right person and realty company. The second time I met with you I had my daughter in tow. You spent a tremendous amount of time “relating” to her and making her feel comfortable. I was impressed yet again by your professionalism. You apologized when you had to take a call and were so responsive to everyone that interacted with you. I went home thinking that our realtor in Maryland was inferior compared to you. I loved the way you followed-up with the realtors that showed your listings and how hands-on” you were with all your clients. You spent numerous hours with my family and in the end we went with a rental in Newtown. I look forward to continuing to do business with you in the near future. You far surpassed all of our expectations as a realtor. You became a friend! Thank you again for your dedication and diligence.
KP, Newtown CT

I want to thank you for all the help you provided to my family and I during my relocation
with Pepsico this past summer. As you know it can be very difficult to relocate a family and I appreciate the speed at which you were able to get my house listed and sold. I also want to thank you for all of the time and effort you put in to help make sure the deal got finalized and closed. There were many hoops you were forced to jump through given the buyers credit situation and the multiple issues they faced with getting the property closed. I felt at ease in my new location in Tennessee knowing that you were all over it up in Connecticut.Thanks again for your help, I will make sure to pass your info along to any colleagues I have that may be moving to or from the area.
I&M, New Fairfield CT

Before a month becomes a year I wanted to write and thank you for everything you
have done for Patti and me. I was extremely concerned at first since the first realtor
that listed my home lacked the sense of urgency that I felt was needed. However,
your approach was much different and much more interactive with prospects, other
realtors and with us. You achieved the sale at what I would consider a fair price in
disastrous marketing conditions. Your attention to detail and follow up procedures
made a stressful situation extremely bearable. Having spent most of my life involved
with sales, marketing and service I appreciate it when I meet a professional. Please
use me as a reference for any potential clients; I would love the opportunity to help
other homeowners by explaining why they need you!
MJ, Danbury CT

Angelina is amazing! Once she put our New Fairfield house on the
market, we received a serious offer within two weeks and we closed
within two months. From the day we met her, she was consistently
supportive, proactive, good humored and highly knowledgeable. She gave
us fabulous advice and was available 24/7. Any seller or buyer would
be very lucky indeed to work with her.
N&G, New Fairfield, CT

Angelina Valentini exceeded all our expectations. She is extremely knowledgeable about her market place, highly professional and lovely to work with. We felt that she was in our corner throughout the whole process. We would certainly recommend Angelina to anyone who expects top notch service.
D&T, Sherman CT

If you are seriously interested in selling your home, then the only choice for your realtor is Angelina Valentini!
In my home town of New Fairfield, I had seen many “For Sale” signs with Angelina’s name on them. A closer look indicated websites for each home. I visited several of those sites and was overwhelmingly impressed!
Soon after, I contacted Angelina and we set up an appointment. As she entered my home, I could sense she was special. She shared with me her ideas and strategies for selling my home. She was open and honest and at no point was she hurried or pushy. When our meeting was finished, she thanked me for the opportunity to share her thoughts.She asked me to call if I decided to choose her as my realtor.After the outstanding presentation, I knew that she was THE realtor for me…..I had no doubts and let her know on the spot!
She created a website for my home, as she does for EVERY home! Included was a virtual tour…..Not a 2 minute tour….an extremely well thought out piece that highlighted every room of my home. It was absolutely FABULOUS!!!
Angelina always let me know when buyers would be visiting, and always called or e-mailed their feed-back. She was always available to talk or meet with me when I needed. If, by chance I got her voice-mail, within minutes she’d return my call. If I wrote her an e-mail,within minutes she’s respond!
Angelina takes the time to fully know her sellers and buyers….not just their homes.She’s attentive and caring. She found the perfect couple to purchase my home. She’s like a match-maker for homes!!!
And her caring doesn’t stop after the sale. Although we closed the sale last month, she has kindly sent e-mails and even photos of my “old” home, decorated for the holidays! The thoughtful nature is just who she is! —-WONDERFUL!!!!
I am blessed to have had her represent me as my realtor. I would -and do!-recommend her to everyone even thinking of selling a property.
CB, New Fairfield CT

I was recommended to Angelina by James Philipokas who was handling my mortgage. I have known Angelina for many years and once I recieved the recommendation I knew i was in good hands. Angelina made herself available whenever I needed. At anytime day or night if i had a question or wanted to see a property she was prompt and ready to get me answers and out to see the houses at my request. At no time did i feel like “just a client” to her as she always made the experience very comfortable for me. Being that I was a first time home buyer she never let me overlook a single thing. Anytime she showed me a house she was ready to tell me the perks and flaws of each home. I can’t say i was impressed by one thing Angelina did because I was impressed by my whole experience with Angelina. I would highly recommend her sevices to anyone with great confidence. If you are looking for a realtor that will make you feel at home when searching for a new home then Angelina is the right person. She caring and trusting and throughout your experience you will be blown away at the attention she gives to her clients and the amount of work she puts into finding the right house that fits what each of her clients needs and wants might be. Thank you Angelina for all your help and support. MP, New Fairfield CT

My husband and I used Angelina to both purchase a home and sell our existing condo. She was wonderful in both cases.
She made the purchase of our new home much easier to deal with considering the sellers didn’t seem to feel any sence of urgency (and had to talk to each other through their attorney.) She kept on top of everything and moved it along to the best of her ability.
When deciding to sell our condo, we made the changes Angelina recommended and had an offer on the first day of the open house!
I would highly recommend Angelina to anyone wishing to buy or sell real estate. She’s professional, highly efficient and will work with you to make sure you get what you want.
SG, Danbury CT

Although I have not bought a home from Angelina, I do work closely with her as a vendor in the process, as I do with many Realtors. She is extermely pro-active and responsive to her clients needs. Always a consumate professional, she takes the time to lend a smile to what can be an emotional time. Were I to decide to sell my home, I’d call Angelina for results.
PF, Newtown CT

We chose Angelina because of her fine reputation. My expectations were high because we were desperate to sell or rent our home. She exceeded our expectations she worked more hours for us than were in the day. Always communicating, supporting, and encouraging us.
I would tell them if they want the best go with Angelina!
D&P, New Fairfield CT

There are very few things in life you can count on to always be there when you need them. Angelina Valentini is one of those few things you can really count on.
We used her to sell our old home and buy a new one and we could not be happier. There were lots of problems along the way with septic systems and permits. Angelina helped us through it all and kept everything moving.
If you are looking for a Realtor that will work hard for you from start to finish, Angelina is the person for you.
SA, New Fairfield CT

Angelina came to us highly recommended to us! She was competent and capable of getting out there to reach the market we needed to sell our Condominium…..Very energetic, friendly and helpful to us! I would recommend Angelina to anyone who wanted to sell their Home or Condo quickly and with the best possible price!
D&R, Danbury CT

She was hardworking and very honest and not only sold our house in 90 days but helped us purchase our home.she met our expectations way and beyond!!!i would recommend any of my friends to angelina without a doubt.
C&M, New Fairfield CT

Angelina was referred to me by my then next door neighbor. I had my house on the market for months without results and she indicated that Angelina was the best. And she certainly was. I was impressed not only by her knowledge and professionalism, but also by her always pleasant and positive attitude throughout what turned inot a stressful ordeal for me. I would gladly recommend Angelina to anyone.
MJ,

From the first conversation I had with Angelina Valentini I was impressed. She was knowledgeable, informed and I could tell that she would work hard to sell my property. She did not disappoint.
I have bought and sold several properties over the years and working with Angelina was the best experience I have ever had in real estate. Not only did she sell my house in a very short time, but this was during the worst housing market in many decades.
My house had been on the market for over a year when she took over the listing from my previous agent. She sold it within a few months and at a price I was very pleased with.From the beginning, Angelina’s recommendations and suggestions were very helpful. I believe that her expertise in marketing, her outstanding knowledge of current market conditions and her unwavering commitment made all the difference in selling my home. I only wish that I had met her sooner.In any future real estate endeavors, she will be the first person I will call and I will never use another agent!Very sincerely,
CR-J,
