Testimonials

There are many things we can say about the high quality of service we provide to our home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of our recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. We hope they indicate our experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much we enjoy helping people with their real estate needs. 

 

"Terry Murphy & Ellen Farmer worked with me last year when I was faced with selling my mother's home in River Edge, NJ. We had interviewed several realtors, and found Terry & Ellen to be stand-outs. Since I do not live in the town, I relied wholly on their knowledge of the area and their expertise in terms of the current market at that time. The prompt, courteous, efficient service they provided to me, as well as their expert advice, was very helpful in navigating an unfamiliar process. They handled even the smallest details and anticipated things I had not even considered. Both girls worked closely with my lawyer and handled everything in a timely manner. I would highly recommend both Terry & Ellen to anyone anticiapting a real estate transaction."

"After consulting with three realtors, I decide to choose Terry & Ellen to list my house of 28 years! The reason I went with them is because they were the most honest, flexible & professional above the rest! They successfully listed & sold my house in less than a week's time! I would strongly recommend their services & believe you'd be a highly satisfied customer!"

"My husband and I recently sold our house in River Edge after 40 years. Although it was a hard decision, the sale of our home was made so much easier because we chose Terry Murphy and Ellen Farmer (The Sister Team) as our realtors. They know the River Edge area market and know how to best market homes in today's world.
My husband and I truly feel that Terry and Ellen couldn't have been better. Their professionalism was exceptional from start to finish. They were always in contact via email, phone or texts. Terry and Ellen were very good at helping me stage the house and even supplied some items needed to maximize the potential of the house. They had names of contractors, electricians and plumbers that came immediately to fix all of our inspection issues and their follow through was exceptional. If something needed to be done - it got done. Terry was there to let contractors and inspectors in, if we weren't available, and made sure the work was done properly.
The best way to describe them is to say that they are "FULL SERVICE REALTORS" and we highly recommend them.

"Terry Murphy & Ellen Farmer were a tremendous help to us in selling our home in River Edge, NJ, even during a period when the housing market was only just beginning to recover from the slump. They were very transparent, had the expertise to appropriately evaluate our property, price it right, and advise us, without being pushy as many other agents are, about how to prepare our house to make it attractive for the buyers. The minor issues with our house were appropriately and quickly resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. Within 3 days of the open house for agents, we received 5 offers, 4 of which were either at the list price or over it. They also recommended an experienced lawyer. Our house sold at a price 3% over the list price and the closing occurred 6 weeks after the open house. Both Terry & Ellen were very friendly, professional, and we continue to maintain contact with them. We recommend them highly and with a great deal of enthusiasm."

"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Terry Murphy last year during our home search. Of all the realtors I worked with, Terry was the most personable, knowledgeable and well-prepared. She previewed most, if not all, of the homes before showing them to us. She had some technical knowledge of the workings of a house. And she knew a lot about the neighborhood and the market. Most importantly, anytime we did put in a bid for a house, she was a strong negotiator. Having worked with several other realtors in the past, I have to say it is really hard to come across a realtor who possesses ALL of these qualities. I highly recommend Terry to anyone looking to buy a home in the towns she covers."

 "I wish to express my sincerest appreciation to both Ellen and Terry from ReMax in making the sale of my house a truly remarkable and pleasant experience.

Both Ellen and Terry provided me with a thorough understanding of the entire process involved in selling a house. They provided expert guidance and well researched advice when it came to selecting a buyer from the numerous offers that came in. They always placed my needs and concerns first and foremost.

Ellen and Terry are both professionals with a high level of integrity and honesty. I would highly recommend them to anyone."

"Ellen did an amazing job for us.  She was always very helpful, always made herself available to us at a moments notice, and her experience in Bergen County really helped us find the perfect home at the best price.  I have already recommended her to my friends and I personally would never go to anyone else but her!"

"Ellen and Terry did a great job selling our house last year.  The beautiful photos they had taken, the open house showings, their great advice and patience were a big help in ultimately selling our lovely home in this market.  We are so happy that we made the right choice in real estate agents."
