“Thank you so much for all your help and the work you did to sell my house.  I thought it was very stressful and I guess I’m glad that you…were able to shield me from some of it.  I felt very comfortable with your advice and now feel that I have a new friend.  You are the “best” and so thoughtful.  Thank you again and again.”   Betty Torell

“Good job getting this done so quickly, and over a holiday weekend, especially with me off in the country without connectivity.  Thanks!!”  Pat Cousey 

“When we were moving from Hoboken our agent called around to Summit areas real estate companies to find out who was the best in the area…he was told Carolann Clynes.  After working with Carolann we can now say they were right.  Local knowledge, competitive/personal disposition and having a solution-oriented approach are strengths that we saw in working with Carolann.”   Jeff J Muir

“Carolann helped me sell my home with as little stress as possible.  She was well prepared in her research, sensitive to my situation and very professional throughout the entire process.  Her caring personality combined with her experience and attention to details made working with her a pleasure!”   Anita Broderick

“After interviewing many Realtors it was clear to me that Carolann Clynes far outshines the rest.  Her vast experience, personal style and proven track record helped me during every step of the process.  She is honest, hard-working and she really gets the job done.  She will coach you throughout the process and she always keeps your best interests at the forefront of all decisions.  If you list with Carolann you list with the BEST!!!”   Jo Malone 

“We could not have asked for a better agent than Carolann buying a home in Chatham, NJ.  She is extremely knowledgeable about the general area we were looking in and expertly guided us through the entire process from selecting homes for viewing - all the way through closing.  Carolann took the time and effort to get to know our family and our specific needs and desires.  She is highly responsive and proactive, without ever being pushy.  She also has a great personality and a wicked sense of humor.  Buying a new home can be tedious and stressful, but Carolann made it a great experience.  I recommend her without reservation.”   Daan Thorn Leeson 

“As far as marketing a home, detail orientation throughout the process, and acting as a buffer between buyer/seller, there is no one better.  Carolann made what could have been a highly contentious process relatively easy, and we are so grateful and appreciative of her efforts during that time.  She is more than a real estate agent…she is a tremendous person.”   Brian Kazan

“We had 5 offers the first weekend after listing our home, and sold it at a price well over asking.  Need I say more?  She is a master at the art of pricing the property to sell, sell quickly and sell fairly.  I do not hesitate to recommend her.”   Ann Marvin

“An excellent agent who is responsive and very considerate of all the parties involved.  She worked diligently to help negotiate and get the deal closed swiftly with no delays!  Highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!”   Jessica Brown

“I wanted to thank you for your first-rate time and help.  It is a people business and, excuse the trite wording, you are a people person.  You make an anxious process smooth and enjoyable.”   James Merriman

“Thank YOU…for your expertise with real estate sales…it’s a good feeling to know that the person you are working with knows what they are doing and does it well.”   Catherine Denning
