I am writing a letter of recommendation for Dolores Leonard to ensure future clients do not pass up the opportunity to engage her when selling a property. I have made many career moves that involved selling homes as well as multiple investment property sales. Ms. Leonard is the most professional and thorough realtor I have encountered throughout all these sales. I recently sold a property during this difficult time. Ms. Leonard researched 92 properties which were my competition in the area. She viewed my property, we discussed the competition, and she suggested a selling price. While the price was lower than I originally expected, it was the third highest on the list of the 92 properties. Ms. Leonard priced my townhouse perfectly! We had almost 600 views on realtor.com, a number of on-site visits and sold the property in 3 weeks, again during a very tough market. Ms. Leonard's skill at pricing, negotiation, and closing the deal were invaluable. I would like to add that she is also a pleasure to work with.

Dear Dolores,

"Your professionalism and sensitivity to our needs are well appreciated. The fact that you were always available to answer all of our questions gave us much confidence in you right from the start.
Feel free to use us as a reference for any future clients. Thanks again, and our best to you and our best to you and everyone on your staff."

"You have done so much in selling my home, and if it wasn't for your knowing the right people and doing the right things my home would still be on the market today. Anyone who place their home in your realty will indeed be very satisfied at the end result, and also be glad they did.
It takes a lot of patience to do your job and you do have what it takes to deal with today's public who are looking for homes. Again let me say thank you and continued success in this business."

"I would recommend you to many of our friends and family as well as anyone who is in need of a realtor."

"The fact that this was the second house in Peekskill that your sold for me is in itself a tribute to your sensitivity, awareness and professionalism in a business that certainly requires your constant attention to a myriad of details."

"Through the years you have given me free appraisals, one on this house when the market was so low I held off. Then you gave me an appraisal on my mother's house that my brother was able to buy keeping the house in the family for the third generation.
.... Thank you again for an excellent job above and beyond."

"Your professionalism, kindness, integrity, direct style and delightful personality made the process painless. ....."

"I had met with several other real estate people in the area, but none of them showed the initiative or professionalism that I had found in Dolores. Not only did I have an idea as to the asking price in a day, I also had a portfolio of other listings that was so thorough that both my parents and I were very impressed with her presentation."

"Your professionalism, courtesy and kindness made these two unique sales successful and smooth. We also thank you very much for the extra handling required to sell Mom's house in NY while we were living in North Carolina."

"...Anna and I both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for you sound advice, your attention to detail, and your observations of the total landscape as the process of the sale progressed. You and your staff, Melissa and Maryanne, were true professionals, and you didn't forget the you were working with a couple of fidgety humans who were moving out of a house which they had occupied for 42 years, and moving to a new and strange environment. You managed to make this whole process seem easy."
