Because Every Move Should Matter ...

Hi Lynda, 

I hope all is well with you. This e-mail is way overdue, but things have been a whirlwind. I want to thank you for all of your time and hard work you put forth in working with me through the sale of my home in Lantana. The whole process was made easier because of you. I thought that being in Connecticut would make it more stressful and difficult, for me to deal with everything, but that was absolutely not the case. 

You were very diligent in your weekly calls to touch base and give me updates of properties that were either sold or recently listed in the area. Your attention to detail is a great attribute. I may not have been easy to work with at times but you never showed any frustration. I feel that we built a friendship and hope that we keep in touch. 

I am settling into my new home in North Carolina. I closed on the house on December 11th and moved December 29th. I am attaching a picture of the house that was taken back in November. It is new construction and still had some finishing touches to be done before the closing. I am very fortunate that things worked out so well. 

Thank you again and I hope to hear from you soon.

My condominium in Boynton Beach, Florida listed with Lynda Perry, was contracted, sold, and closed on August 7, 2009.

Throughout the whole process, Lynda was very helpful and always available. She furnished frequent updates and/or showings, comps, other sales, etc. In addition, she was always encouraging inspite of the market we were dealing with.

I would gladly recommend her services to any prospective buyer or seller.

Dear Ms. DeFries,
Just a note to tell you what a pleasant experience it was to work with Lynda on our recent quest for a tenant at our property in High Point West III.

Lynda is discerning, professional and extremely helpful at every phase of the process. She is an excellent source of information, of reliable trades´ people and of encouragement from the first day forward. Every time she made a recommendation, she was correct in her assumptions. Every time we needed her help she was very responsive and more than willing to help solve whatever challenge had presented itself. 

This is our second time working with her and your organization, and both times, we were extremely satisfied with the results, as well as with the intangibles such as courtesy, expertise, frankness and diligence. Thanks to Lynda and to you for making this experience a beneficial one for all involved.

Dear Lynda:
How can I thank you enough for all that you've done for me To start, it was you that alerted me to my Dad's health condition, so that I realized the need to visit and help him. You and your husband helped my Dad in so may ways -- even picking him up and bringing him home from the hospital -- and so many other things, the list could just go on. You are truly a kind and generous soul, and I hope that you get back all the good karma that you give out.

I will be forever grateful to you for all that you did in helping me through an extremely difficult ordeal, both emotionally, logistically, and every other which way. You were professional, knowledgeable, and served as an advocate for me in every situation.

I would be happy to refer you to anyone as the "Ultimate Realtor". One who is honest, and realy goes to the matt for her client.

Also, thank you so very much for sending me my family photos. There were of my dad and mom and it made me so happy to get them, and look trhough them with my kids.

Lynda, I wish you all the best, always. I will not forget all that you've done for me, and for my dad. You will always be for me, one of the people whos path crossed mine, that actually did make a difference.

Wish you all the best blessings in life ... With sincere regards,

To: Whom It May Concern

Balistreri Realty:
I have been working with Lynda Perry for over 2 years and in that time, we have completed two Real Estate transactions. The first was a last minute search for a seasonal rental. Lynda not only found a fabulous tenant for our property in short order and in a tight Real Estate market, but also handled the details with style and professionalism. The second also involved our rental property and she did us one better and found a tenant with the best possible rental scenario.

I have been on the agent side for both residential and commercial real estate deals, and Lynda has a great sense of both the details of the transaction and the nuances of the making of a good deal that best serves both sides. This is rare and certainly requires not only a background, but knowledge of the field and also the people skills that are a necessity within the back and forth of the negotiations.

Finally, Lynda is a joy to be around. She is always cheerful and pleasant, which goes a long way when she has to share details with both my wife and myself.

I would highly recommend her as both a professional realtor and friend.

Dear Karen,
I'm writing to thank you for all you've done for us. Without your help, our relocation to 'The Villages' could have been a nightmare, but you reassured us and took us in hand and made it a pleasureable experience.

First, thank you for sending us a great Realtor, Lynda Perry, from Balistreri Realty. She helped us to prepare for the sale of our house in Boynton Beach, from deciding on an asking price, to keeping us informed of the market situation, to preparing and sending out a post card mailer (which eventually brought us our buyer), and finally to closing. Lynda was both professional and compassionate. She held our hand during that difficult, scary period. I would not hesitate to recommend her; she knows the market and she knows how to sell a house!

Thanks for helping us to find the place in which we're living until our closing date at 'The Villages'. It was hard to find a place for the month of March (during the busy season), but your guidance made it happen.

Finally, Hill's Mayflower handled our move out of Boynton Beach effeciently and professionally, thanks to your recommendation.

Best Regards,

Dear Lynda,
Both James and I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your effects in the recent transaction relative to our purchase of 1262 Club Drive W., Unit D in High Point of Delray. It is no understatement to say that without your direct involvement in our purchase, it is unlikely that the sale would have come to fruition. 

It was because of your superb attention to detail and determination to discover and implement solutions in all areas in what became an ever increasingly complex sale that all parties were able to achieve their objectives. Your efforts not only relative to those solutions, but also your overall co-ordination of all aspects of the process resulted in this succesful sale/purchase. 

In addition, we would like to additionally thank both Carol Balistreri and Joseph Balistreri for their direct involvement at your request, which proved extremely helpful to the achievement of the final result. We would, needless to say, unequivocally and gladly recomment your personal Realty services to anyone interested in either buying or selling property. Again, thank you for all your efforts in going the extra mile to ensure that this transaction had succesful results.

Sincerely yours,
Frank W. Caradonna

RE: Lynda Perry Reference Letter 

To Whom It May Concern: 
Wow!! What can I say about Lynda Perry! I really wanted to take this opportunity to talk about working with Ms. Lynda Perry. She has really made the whole home selling experience for us a very pleasant one. 

Lynda is very thorough and knowledgeable when it comes to selling a home. She also was very patient and kind when working with us during the process. She always kept us abreast of the market conditions and gave us continuous status and recommendations at all times. The way that she handled our home and the marketing of it was done exceedingly well and we were extremely pleased. Even when the final offer came in, she helped us to negotiate and get the value out of our home. 

I really want to make it known that Lynda is awesome to work with and she really took care of us when selling our home. I would highly recommend Lynda for those looking to sell/buy a home. I´m sure she works just as hard if you´re a buyer. Sincerely,

Carol, I wanted to take this opportunity to drop you a line and let you know how pleased Erika and I are with the service that Lynda Perry provided for us in selling our home at 6140 Willoughby Circle in Lake Worth. In late August of 2006, we listed our house with Lynda. This was right around the time that the housing market started really started to crash in South Florida. 

Lynda marketed that my home diligently. There were 11 other homes for sale in my development and none of the other agents were doing much marketing. Lynda did mailings, held open houses, and consistently followed up with the other agents after EVERY showing. Lynda was able to create a BUZZ for my home, we were having 2-3 showings a day on the weekend when the other home listed in the neighborhood were getting none.

After just three months the offers started to come in. We dealt with some low-ball offers, and some below market sales in the neighborhood that significantly affected the situation. The lowball offers and sales were a product of the "down" market. However per Lynda´s advice we held our ground and by the end of December we got what one might consider and excellent price for the house considering the market conditions.

I also need to point out that during this process we had relocated, and Lynda handled all the logistics for the closing without missing a beat. She even handled some incidental business related to the sale for us, which she did not have to do!

I wanted to take the time to point out what a great job Lynda had done for us. She is an asset to the organization and a true professional realtor. 

Thank You Paul & Erika Maniscalco

Dear Carol:
Last month I closed on a condo at High Point 6 with the assistance of Lynda Perry. Until the day of the closing when we did a walk through, I had not seen the unit. However, I am familiar with the area as my cousing lives in High Point 7.

The purpose of my letter is to let you know that Lynda made the entire experience a wonderful experience. It is my first turn at purchasing a 'secondary' home. Lynda is a true professional. She is extremely knowledgeable and was forthcoming with all the facts about the condo unit and the area. She supplied me with a 'to-do' list, which I used as a check list. She was courteous, pleasant very responsive. You have a gem in your office. In the past, I have bought and sold several 'primary' properties and have worked various realty companies. I can honestly say that I am impressed with Balistreri Realty, Inc., and it is because of Lynda Perry. She is an excellent representative of your company, besides being "one really super person."

Be assured that I will highly recommend not only Lynda Perry, but also your office to my family and friends, who reside in Delray and outlying areas of Florida.

Thanks to Lynda and her diligence, I am the proud owner of a 'secondary' home. The best to you! Regards,

Dear Ms. Balistreri
Selling a home is very emotional, but selling a home when the sellers live in another state is even harder and more emotional. This is the stuation that confronted our family recently. Our parents, until May, resided in Delray Beach and were happy in their home. However, health issues made it imperative that we sell their home and retun them to Pennsylvania, where my brothers and I reside, so we could look after their needs.

We did not know any Realtors in Delray Beach, but our cousin, a Realtor in Georgia found Lynda Perry. What a lucky find for us! Although we never met in person, I felt like Lynda was a friend because of her friendly demeanor and the frequency of the communications between us. I'll miss speaking with her! Lynda has been a wonderful advocate for us during the past three months. She was ver conscientious about keeping me posted concerning the progress of the house sale, providing advice regarding the price of the house, providing advice regarding throughout the offer process, and providing encouragement when we got discouraged about the amount of time it took for the house to sell (which in reality wasn\'t that long).

On behalf of our family, please accept our thanks for the help of your agency, especially Lynda, in this recent sale. We will be sure to pass this information on to our parents and friends who are still in the Delray Beach area, should they ever need the assistance of a realiable, friendly, profressional Realtor.

Dear Lynda:
I wanted to drop you a note and tell yu how pleased Paula and I were with the way you handled the elase of our new home in Florida! This was our first venture into Florida Real Estate, and you certainly made the experience easier than I had expected. I especially appreciated the extra time you put into checking on the house and lining up different workmen for the necessary taks to get the home ready for the renters. We were 1200 miles away and did not know any workment in Florida, and we would have been in a world of trouble if you hadn't been so helpful.

We certainly would plan to use your services again if we decided to rent for the next year or season, or if we should decide to sell the house at some time in the future date. Everything was handles in a most professional manor. Again, thanks for all your help.

Best wishes to you for a Happy Holiday Season and A Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

Dear Lynda,
This thank you is late coming. George and I want to say our thanks for all and we mean all you have done for us regarding the purchase of our unit in High Point of Delray Beach. Your total professionalism and understanding and guidance was absolutely beyond words. We were both impressed with how you knew exactly what to do for us and your advise was always right on target. You treated the unit as if it was yours, which many don't, therefore George and I both felt that's why you have us such sound advise.

Again,our thanks, we have never felt such confidence in anyone, especially in buying our unit as we felt with you. You are a very very nice person.

Dear Lynda:
We wanted to thank you again for helping our Florida dream come true! Buying a home when one is local can be a difficult project unto it's own, but purchasing property from 1200 miles away could almost seem impossible. This was not the case. We initially found you by looking for property on the INTERNET. We began our search and communication by eMIALs, which later progressed to an appointment for viewing.

It was to our surprise, that in one long weekend, we were able to find our property and secure the initial stages of the purchase. One additional trip was needed to Florida to close on the property and of course, furnish our new vacation home. Your support, information and referrals were efficient and of extremely high quality. It still amazes us that a process could run so smoothly. In addition, it was really fun and comfortable getting to know you as a person.

Again, we can't thank you and Balistreri Realty, Inc., for your work and ease with the process and for making our Florida dream come true.

Dear Lynda:
Cheers to you - the unsung Angel 'Realtor', whom helped me find the most perfect place to reside. Who knows maybe it was an omen that an old friend and I would cross paths again one day and buy his home, or maybe it was your keen knowledge and perseverance. I guess we'll never know! I personally from the bottom of my heart, want to thank you so very much for taking me to see over 50 properties, keeping me informed, putting up with me, but most importantly, "Thank you for calling me back...", that in itself makes a statement that you are true to your profession and a very great lady, whom I hope is now someone I can call my friend.

Cheers to you always!

Dear Lynda,
Just a short note to 'Thank You' so much for the great job you did in the listing and selling of Mary's home in Delray Beach. We were pleasantly surprised with the final sale price and the timely manner in which you managed to get it sold! She is finally getting settled in and loving her new surroundings.

If by chance any of Mary's friends or neighbors decide to sell their home and move, we will certainly refer them to you. Also, we will send a copy of the letter of recommendation to Karen and the Relocation Department of "The Village".

A BIG thanks for the Krispy Kremes and coffee on the day of moving ... that was very thoughtful and made the day not quite so "stressful"...

Dear Lynda:
I want to tell you how much I appreciated your professionalism in my recent home purchase. From the time I was assigned to you as my relocation agent in Florida, until the date of settlement, you went the extra mile in making this sale materialize.

I remember setting a time and date to meet you for the purpose of finding a winter home in Florida. The day we met I could tell that you had done your homework. You personally drove my wife and I to fifteen or more possible sites to examine. Being a knit picker, I was not satisfied with any of them and left Florida asking you to be on the look out for what you feel I would be interested in. A few weeks later you called me in Maryland and said that you had a property that I might want to see. I called a friend of mine in that area to check this out for me and advised that it was not up to my standards. Two days later you called and said that one like I was interested in was just listed and was in good condition and also a perfect location. I again sent my friends over to look and they agreed with you and a contract was offered and accepted by the sellers.

Residing here in Maryland, I had to rely on your for meeting the home inspector, changing over the electric service, changing over the water service, recommending a insurance agent, recommending a home re modeler to make the necessary changes to this house and finally arranging for the settlement attorney. This all came off without any surprises and without my having to go back to Florida.

My wife and I are extremely satisfied with this houe and look forward to moving in this fall. Lynda, this sale would not have been possible without you. Your are a credit to the real estate profession and I will highly recommend you in the future.

I hope that you will be able to hear one of my Franklin Roosevelt speeches in the 2005 season.

Dear Lynda,
We wanted to take this opportunity to "thank you" for your efforts in working with us to sell our condo in St. Tropez. As you are aware due to illness, we have had to take this home at this time off the market. However, we wanted to express to you our recognition of all of your efforts to accomplish a positive sales result for us. Not only did you attract numerous showings and offers for our home, but you also brought to us the full price offer that we were seekings, which if it were not for the contingencies requested, would have completed the sale. You accomplished for us precisely what you committed you would. We will certainly recommend you as Realtor realtor to others, and if we have the opportunity to market this property again, we would be pleased to have you represent us once more. Keep in touch!

Your professional approach and skilled preparation were most instrumental in achieving the sale of our Lake Worth condo unit.

You went above and beyond what you contracted to do for us. I appreciated the constant updates on what was transpiring and all of your recommendations for other services that I needed (i.e. termite treatment, probate, etc.) I'm sure you were as happy as I was the day it actually closed.

Dear Lynda:
For most people the purchase of a home is the single largest investment they make in their lifetime. Finding that home becomes their primary concern. A Realtor is usually a necessary evil that comes with the process.

My wife and I found you by chance (your Residences Advertising) and learned a valuable lesson. When looking for real estate the "real broker or agent" is a invaluable asset that can make the process easier and in fact enjoyable. You taught us a valuable lesson.

My wife and I realize that good agents ask questions that help them in guiding the potential buyer through the exercise. You made our goals your primary concern and showed us everything in our price range regardless of whether it was your listing. After our first offer - did not work out and we went back North you kept in touch and continued to send us listing. The results were wonderful.

We now have a wonderful vacation home in Florida. The listing was not yours and you stayed with us til the end.

We have our perfect place, one we can afford and a wonderful bonus, a new friend, Lynda Perry.

You can be sure we will always tell anyone we know that using your services is the first thing they should do in their search to buy in South Florida. Your are a true professional.

To Whom It May Concern: 
I contracted with Lynda Perry on Sunday to sell my home in Boynton Beach. In less than one week photos of my home featured in the Residence section of the Palm Beach Post, in less than 48 hours a color brochures were printed were produces, as well as in less than 24 hours, a very detailed description of my property was placed into MLS.

By the next Saturday, she brought to me 4 contract offers from qualified potential buyers. Lynda Perry by far the best choice I could make to represent me. She was behind me every step of the way. She was present for all inspections and the appraisal, and kept in close contact with me through the process of closing the sale of my home.

I must say that Lynda Perry excelled in all aspects of her job. She is also very personable and was very patient with me when I had questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Lynda to anyone thinking of sell or buying a home. My only regret is that she could not help in my home search in my new Tennessee location.

To Whom It May Concern:
I recently purchased a home using the services of your firm and in particular the most proficient real estate professional, Lynda Perry. Lynda provided my wife and I the most thorough services we have seen in a long time. I would like to say that I am a little overdue in writing this letter since we closed on our home, March 30, 2001. I do however want to express how much Lynda did for us by writing this letter. Lynda not only has the knowledge, but the charisma and class it takes to be a true professional. Lynda has the follow through that it takes to get the job done.

My wife and I were truly amazed at the dedication Lynda had to make our closing happen. She would call and remind me of all the things I needed to be doing. She would meet with us when it was convenient for us and often times it was late in the day. After working with Lynda for a short time, we began to wonder if she ate or slept.

I truly didn't have a great impression of people in real estate, I thought they were pushy and very pressure sales oriented. Lynda Perry changed my perception. I would like to say she is a great asset to your company.

I have already given Lynda's card to my friends and individuals at work. I advised that she was dependable, reliable, and thorough.
