We would like to thank you for all your hard work in help us sell our home.  Your professionalism and dedication allowed us to sell the property within weeks of placing it on the market.  We appreciate your advice and suggestions in helping to market our home more efficiently and effectively.  Most importantly, I believe you have a gift in assessing the value of a house in this very challenging market.  I honestly believe we would never have sold our house as quickly as we did and for more than our asking price if it were not for you.  You are more than a realtor, you are a friend.  I would recommend you to everyone I know.  Thank you so Much.

My name is Peter Bingham.  I recently hired Ms. Sally Wacks at Houlihan Lawrence to sell my father's house in an estate sale.  She was totally professional and competent in all areas.  It was a pleasure to deal with her both personally and professionally.  She obviously priced the house accurately, as I received a full price offer in one week.  The process from start to finish moved smoothly and swiftly, with the  help of Ms. Wacks.

I would recommend Ms. Wacks highly for anyone interested in selling their house.  Her expertise, knowledge, and insight are invaluable.  Besides, she is a genuine pleasure to work with.

Because we are not from the area, my husband Craig and I were having a hard time finding the right home in Westchester.  A friend of ours recommended we call their friend and real estate agent, Sally Wacks at Houlihan Lawrence.  From the moment we met Sally, she took her time getting to know us and did a great job in narrowing down exactly what we were looking for in our first home.  Sally not only sent countless weekends showing us houses in different neighborhoods, but also notified us every time a new listing came on the market that met our criteria.  With her experience and knowledge of the Westchester area, Sally's proactive approach led us to purchase our very first home.  Through our search process, we grew to look to Sally as a friend and a valuable resource.  She even stopped by to visit when we had our first child.  Anybody who works with Sally is and will remain in good, capable hands.

Selling a home can often times be a time consuming and not a very enjoyable experience. Having Sally Wacks represent my family in this real estate transaction proved to be one of the smartest decisions we made during this process.
Her knowledge of the market place enabled us to set a proper asking price for our condo and achieve an acceptable offer in under two weeks. Sally kept us informed and calm throughout the entire process. I would recommend her without hesitation.

Sally served not only as our real estate agent and expert, but also our friend. We could tell from our first meeting that she would be a trusted confidant in this process.

In the insanely difficult housing market of the greater New York City suburbs, she helped to organized each step of the process. We felt comfortable relying on her deep knowledge of both the towns and the most current market trends. There were no questions that we asked that she didn’t know or quickly find the answer to. Sally was always generous with her time, patient, and a pleasure to work with. We will most certainly work with Sally for anything we need in the future!
