Testimonials from those we’ve helped buy or sell their home:

“You are the A+ Team”

I want to thank you and Ron for your expertise, professionalism & support during such a stressful time.  You are definitely the “A+” team of Realtors.  I’m happy we chose the best.

Eleanor, Mount Arlington

“Your knowledge, advice and assistance have already saved us tens of thousands of dollars…”

Kelly:

Thanks for touching base again to review our needs as it relates to real estate. I thought it was important to let you know how much my wife and I have been impressed with how you handled our sale a few months ago and how you now are thinking about us first vs.. what may be in your own interest for the short run.

When you and I reviewed my situation you suggested waiting to buy for another year or so in order to improve our position and get the best house possible.

It would have been very easy for you to use tactics that would have influenced us to move faster now but you did not. You realized that for our personal situation, waiting was best even though you would not make any money in the short run.

I have to say this is very refreshing and reassuring to know we have someone in our network that thinks this way.

Your knowledge, advice and assistance have already saved us tens of thousands of dollars and when we are ready to buy again, of course we will be working with you!

Thanks and please feel free to have any prospective sellers or buyers call me for a reference.

“Ms. Holmquist & her assistant are the best realtor we have ever dealt with...”

Ms. Holmquist & her assistant are the best realtor we have ever dealt with selling our home. I cannot believe we wasted our time with Platinum Realty & wasted so much time. Ms. Holmquist sold our home with a 2 week period and provided us with a very competent attorney. I highly recommend her & Coldwell Banker Realty”

Paul – Mount Olive

“…a GREAT TEAM …”

“Kelly, doesn’t seem possible that a month has passed since we closed on our Chester home. Many thanks to you and a GREAT TEAM for making our experience a pleasant one. Your professional manner and marketing skills were a terrific asset. Our association was brief (that’s a good thing) but very rewarding. Thanks again!!”
“Thanks again and a big ‘hello’ to all, especially Cheri! — She was terrific!!”

Kay & Chuck – Chester

 

“…a pleasure to deal with.”

“Dear Anna,

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our selling and buying process a great experience. We were nervous about selling our house in a down market and were really anxious to purchase the house of our dreams. You made both happen quickly and seamlessly – and always were a pleasure to deal with.

Thank you!
Jeff & Jen, Chester”

“…above and beyond!”

Now that the dust has settled and most? of the boxes have been unpacked, we wanted to take the time now to express our sincere appreciation and complete satisfaction with the service you and your team provided us on the sale of our home this past summer. We can honestly say that you and your team performed above and beyond the already high expectations you laid out for us when we gave you the listing of our home. Aside from being a wonderful person to deal with, your unyielding professionalism and strict attention to every detail made the sale of our home painless. Over the past seven years we have dealt with literally dozens of realtors and none of them had the experience, work ethic and commitment to executing a very aggressive marketing strategy that you did for us. To this day, friends and family still comment how professional and compelling the marketing package you put together was and they were even more impressed with the speed and price at which our house sold in such a soft market. Going forward, whenever someone asks if we know any good realtors?. we will happily say yes!! the best in New Jersey. Thanks Again for going above and beyond !
Kyle & Sharon – Mount Olive

“…Great Job…”

“Dear Kelly and Team Holmquist,
Carol and I wanted to write and thank you for the great job Team Holmquist did for us in our recent home sale. When we first got together, we were unsure of what to expect in this upside down market but you calmly walked us through what needed to be done to achieve the goal – selling our home.

91 days later we had a check in our hands as a result of a successful closing! This could not have happened without the professional guidance and coaching from your team. From our early meetings to determine the listing price and to learn what needed to be done to insure that our home showed well – right through the critical negotiating process – the Team was there to guide us. In particular, we were blessed to have the patient handholding and regular pep talks of Cheri Miller. She not only helped us with selling our home, but also was with us on more weekends than we could count to show us potential new properties. You are blessed to have her at your side.

As I told you following the closing, we won’t hesitate to recommend Team Holmquist to anyone thinking of selling his or her home. We know that they will be as pleased as we are about the outcome.

Thank you and JOB WELL DONE!”

Carol and Jeff – Roxbury

“…he was a true professional…”

“…Mitchell Ross handled the sale of my property…was a true professional sharing his knowledge and expertise. He was most supportive, remaining positive and proactive in a very poor market. During this time, I had relocated and Mitchell oversaw the property keeping me informed of things that needed to be done. He also provided immediate feedback to me after every showing by relaying the information he had gathered through his follow up phone calls and emails. I was always confident that he was working in my best interest.”

Sharon – Chester

“…helpful and professional…”

“Very helpful and professional. I appreciated the business-like approach to my home sale. Would highly recommend.”

Jackie – Hasbrouk Heights

“…keep up the great work…”

“Kelly,

I just wanted to share some thoughts on our very positive experience working with you and the rest of The Holmquist Team at Keller Williams. We were slightly hesitant when we heard that you had changed companies to one that we were unfamiliar with. However, our nervousness went away quickly the minute our house went on the market. We are very pleased with the significant traffic we have seen and the quality of the advertising materials/yard sign. They are an obvious cut above the rest. Additionally, we have been happy to see agents from various parts of the county and across the state have shown our home to their clients. An offer so close to asking price within 3 weeks is more than we had hoped for in this market. Please keep up the great work and all the best to you and your team in your new endeavor.”
Harold – Mount Olive

“…smooth and painless!”

Dear Kelly,
Thank you so much for helping us through the sale of our home! We were a bit apprehensive about the market condition, but you gave us good advice on how to make our home attractive to potential buyers. We had first thought we would price the house higher so we can leave some room to bargain, but I am glad you advised us to price it lower. We had over 20 showings in two weeks!
Looking at our competition, we feel our house attracted more notice because it was priced lower. Because of this, we were able to get two competing offers and we have received a bid higher than our asking price. Again, thank you for making our house selling experience smooth and painless!
Carolle & Ward – Rockaway Boro

 

“…you are the best…”

Thank you, Kelly! You know I will forever recommend you for any real estate needs. Not only because you are the best in the business, but because I like you

Gary & Michelle – Long Valley

“Anna worked tirelessly…”

“Anna Nevolis worked tirelessly to help us find a home, after living overseas for several years. She helped us understand what the different towns in NJ had to offer (the community, schools, and
neighborhoods) and took us thru the whole process till we closed and we were handed the key. You really want that experience in a realtor. Thank you, Anna.”
Pierce & Julie – Mendham, NJ

“Appreciate you…”

“Appreciate you for who you are and what you do. AND YOUR HONESTY!!!”
Larry – Chester

“Awesome”

“Thank you for the awesome selling experience. After switching from another realtor to you, it was a pleasure. You sold our house in record time. Thank you!”

Neil & Deborah – Mount Olive

“Competent and Professional”

“Kelly was willing to take on our unique situation when other realtors were not. She is extremely competent and professional. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so.”

Amy and Darin – Chester

“Fantastic Job”

And the best part is we owe it to you. You did a fantastic job selling our other house so we could afford this one.

Noel & Sharon – Long Valley

“He went above and beyond…”

“Mitch Ross was an amazingly helpful, persistent and compassionate agent. He went above and beyond to help me find the perfect place, and even referred me to services needed to facilitate my closing. As a first time home buyer, I had many questions and uncertainties, and he was consistently available to help me through each step of the process. I would highly recommend his services to any family or friend, and I believe that he is a wonderful asset to Coldwell Banker!”

Kelly – Bedminster

“Hire a professional team – the Holmquists”

“Anyone about to sell or purchase a home in or near MorrisCounty should without a doubt hire the Holmquist team. For our sale, Kelly did a comprehensive analysis of homes sold/selling in our area and coupled it with trends in the real estate market. She came up with a price that was absolutely spot on. We had a full price offer 6 days after the sign went up in our yard. We had another offer a few days after. In this market, at our price range, we thought it impossible. Most importantly, we listened to Kelly’s advice. She’s the expert and knows her business inside/out. Several of our friends and relatives wondered if we priced too low since we got such a quick offer. Huh?! In this market?! If we’d priced higher (and who isn’t tempted, especially those selling for less than they bought), we may’ve ended up like houses on our same street – still on the market and having to drop price anyway. For our purchase, Christer is totally on the ball. He helped us find and see listings in our areas of interest, but more importantly, he adroitly steered us through every step of negotiation, including some painful inspection issues. If you need to sell or buy a house, please take our advice… don’t FSBO and don’t hand the largest financial transaction of your life to someone who does this part time. Hire a professional team – the Holmquists.”

Jim & Elisa – Morristown

“I was very happy with Chris…”

Susan F. – Allamuchy

“I’m pleased with Kelly and Keller Williams”

“I listed my home with Kelly Holmquist at Keller Williams and received numerous offers within a few days of the initial listing. Kelly has an impressive set of business relationships and a committed support staff – all of which she used to make sure my listing received maximum exposure. I selected Kelly because her energy and experience were more important to me than the brand recognition of Keller Williams. So far in the selling process, I’m pleased with the performance of both Kelly and Keller Williams.”

Gina – Mount Olive

 

 

“Kelly Holmquist SOLD our house!”

“Kelly Holmquist SOLD our house! 5th day on the market…first couple walked through, on the 10th day they made an offer! By the 18th day on market, we were out of attorney review (only 2% below asking)! How is that for fast?
THANK YOU KELLY and THE HOLMQUIST TEAM!”

Tom & Sharon – Andover

“Kelly sold our house in 6 days! “

“We bought and sold with the Holmquist team in 2009. Despite market conditions at the time, Kelly sold our house in 6 days! She kept our expectations realistic; rather than telling us what we wanted us to hear, she told us what we needed to hear to get our home sold quickly. We couldn’t have been happier and have recommended her and Chris to others.”

John & Nancy – Chester

“Kelly was the best agent we have had”

“We have sold 8 homes, and I can honestly say Kelly was the best agent we have had. She was very professional, and also fun to work with. Her whole team was great.”

Peggy – Long Valley

“Mitch was unbelievable”

“Mitch was unbelievable. He helped in every aspect along the way. It was a short sale, so there were many bumps along the way. But, Mitch always bent over backwards and did everything he could to get information for us. Even after we moved in to the house, he continued to help us and answer our questions. We have already started to recommend him! He was so spectacular that even our family and friends noticed and were impressed with Mitch. He is an exceptional realtor!”

Sarah – Chester

 

“OUTSTANDING real estate agent!”

“Kelly is an OUTSTANDING real estate agent! She’s hard-working, results-oriented, and most importantly, cares about her clients. Not only is Kelly my “go to” realtor, she’s also a friend. I recommend Kelly to anyone in central NJ who’s looking to sell and/or purchase a home.”

Roger – Chester

 

 

“Outstanding work”

Dear Kelly,

It was really great to have you as our agent. We had no idea of what to expect when we embarked on the project of selling our home of 41 years. It was quite an experience!

As we went along, our confidence continued to grow in your professionalism, expertise, knowledge of the real estate market, objectivity, experience, judgment, courage to propose changes in strategy when needed, and the Holmquist Team.

You were always reachable, and when we had questions, you were ready with sound, educated answers given in an objective, unemotional manner. You brought sanity to an insane market – which produced a merciless buyer/agent which had to be dropped, and a more reasonable second buyer which you helped guide to the closing.

We are grateful to you and your Team for outstanding work.

Yolanda and Morey
Morey & Yolanda – Chester

“Professional and Efficient”

I wanted to send you a line to let you know how my wife and I appreciate working with you and your team.
There are two words that best describe my experience with you: Professional and Efficient.
As we went through the trying process of home sale, you were always there to answer questions whether by phone or email. My wife and both agree ” I don’t think she made one mistake”.

Anthony J. Martin & Deborah L.Martin – Long Valley to Rhode Island

“She always had a professional attitude.”

“Kelly was always available to answer any question and she did so with knowledge of the market. She always had a professional attitude. She made the selling of our home less stressful! We would recommend her and her team at Keller WIlliams to anyone who wants to sell their home.”

John V. – Chester

“Thank you for everything”

“Thank you for everything, I couldn’t have gotten through it without you, seriously.”

Rita – Long Valley

“Thank you for your guidance…

“Chris and Kelly,

It was a pleasure working with you both in selling and buying our new home. Thank you for your guidance in helping us find the right house for us. Look forward to talking with you soon.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Regards,

Matt & Milli – Long Valley

“THANK YOU”

“Kelly, Carol and I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for your help, support and genuine concern for us during the sale of our home in New Jersey. We appreciate all the hard work and effort you and your team gave us during these difficult and trying times attempting to sell a home in a market that is not a Seller’s Market. You always had a positive outlook and there were many times we needed that reassurance that our home would sell and everything would work out for us. We always felt we made the right decision in choosing you as our realtor.

Well, everything has worked out and we now are the proud owners of a new home in Richmond, VA.

Say a special THANK YOU to Chris and Sherrie for us. You make a great team.”
John & Carol Miller

“Thanks again for all your support”

“Hello Kelly,

This is just a little note thanking you for all your support and professionalism. We finally did it!

Thanks again for all your support. No doubt I will mention your name if I know people who are thinking of selling.

Have a good day”
Edmee – Chester

“Their professionalism is second to none”

“Keller-Williams are a true state-of-the-art operation, having command of a wealth of valuable resources and the knowledge, ability and drive to make it all work for the client. As a real estate attorney, I have experienced all the region’s major brokerage houses in action, and can truly say the operations of Keller-Williams – Kelly Holmquist are by far the best in the region. I am particularly impressed with the vigilant, hands-on manner in which the Keller-Williams – Holmquist operation executes on a daily basis. Their professionalism is second to none.”

Mark & Colleen – Long Valley

“Truly more than just a realtor…a friend.”

“It was a pleasure to work with Kelly and the Holmquist Team when selling my home in HackettstownNJ. Kelly is very knowledgeable about the market and the tactics needed to sell a home in today’s market. She is excellent at keeping the client informed and makes recommendations and provides perspectives daily. She truly makes one feel as if they are her ‘most important’ client.

Do to personal issues I was not available during the inspection and closing period of the home, matter of fact I was on the west coast while the sale of my home was occurring on the east coast. Kelly made it possible for me to address personal issues by overseeing the entire sale and managing things far beyond the expectations of a realtor. It was comforting to know and trust that Kelly was taking care of everything with my best interest at heart. Truly more than just a realtor…a friend.”
Carol S. – Mansfield

“We had a very positive experience…”

“Kelly Holmquist was not our first realtor, but she was the one who sold 60 River Rd.
Her knowledge of the real estate market was enhanced with a team that would give her the edge needed to be at the top. Chris took amazing color pictures of our home and Cheri was never too busy to answer any of our questions. Kelly had a quick reference guide with her that would help find a lawyer or a moving company. Kelly provided accurate information in the form of the market service report. GSMLS activity report and the NJ realty transfer fee to name a few. . We had a very positive experience and would not hesitate to recommend the very professional and knowledgeable realtor, Kelly Holmquist.”

John and Sandy – Mount Olive

 

“We would highly recommend Kelly”

“Kelly was straight forward with what needed to be done with our house and what price we should list at. We trusted her expertise and it wound up she was spot on with the price. Our house sold within 2 weeks of listing. Kelly’s negotiation skills are outstanding as we sold the house for 2% less than our asking price! Kelly was awesome to work with. She guided us through the entire process. We would highly recommend Kelly and the Holmquist Team.

We also worked with Christer Holmquist when buying our new home. Again, great experience with a professional realtor.”
Tom & Sharon Z. – Andover

“With much love and thanks...”

“My husband and I tried to sell our home on our own for close to one year with no success. From the minute we met Anna, we knew we were in great hands. She is such a wonderful person- just like a longtime friend!!

Once we listed with her, our home was sold within a week, and the process went very smoothly. We truly knew she always had our best interest in mind, and that’s a great feeling!

We thank you so much, Anna- you made a very stressful time in our lives the best it could be, and we can’t wait to work with you again in the future!!!

With much love and thanks,”
Danielle & Brian

“Wonderful Experience”

“Working with both Kelly and Chris was a wonderful experience. I sold and bought a house pretty much simultaneously. They were professional and a pleasure to do business with. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone in need of a realtor!”

Rosemarie – Mount Olive

“You and your team are great!”

“I just want to say to you I have never had so much help preparing my house to sell in all my many moves. You and your team are great!”

Nancy – Long Valley

 

 

“You are a great leader”

“Kelly, what can I say but WE DID IT.

Selling a home is truly a team effort. You are a great leader. You gave us the good the bad and the ugly. At times you were my shrink. 🙂 At the end of the day, we succeeded in our goals and we moved a home in 5 weeks!! Truly remarkable! Do not throw out my tin foil!! Keep it to remember us by. We will never forget your team’s efforts, especially when they unlocked the door for our baby sitter.
Ha! Gotta love it!!
Best of luck!

Thanks so much for everything.”
Greg & Dee Dee – Chester

“You are the best Realtor…”

“So happy, Kelly. I am moving on to better things. Thank you for helping me sell the house. I greatly appreciate your professionalism and honesty very much. You are the best realtor I have worked with.
Best regards,
Christine”
Christine H. – Mount Olive

“you are very professional”

“Good morning Kelly,

Thanks for all your help during the sale of my home. You were always there when I needed you and you are very professional. Good luck in all your future endeavors. If I hear of people who are thinking of selling, I will shoot off an email to you.”

Edmee – Chester

“You have a real gem in Tracey”

“Dear Kelly,

The move is complete and I have been busy try to figure out exactly where I want to place my furniture etc. I have been having a great time doing it, but I wanted to pause long enough to rave about one of your agents, Tracey Naylor. There is no way that I would have found a house that was such a perfect fit for me without her. She was uncompromising in her pursuit in helping me find this house. Tracey took the time to really find out what I was looking for and then stuck with me until we found it. That is a true testament to her abilities and I have already recommended her to others that I know, one of whom has already listed with you.

You have a real gem in Tracey and I know she has the backing of the first class Holmquist Team. I just want to pass on a sincere thank you to her, you and the whole Team.”

Bill
Bill M. – Port Murray

 

“You have a terrific team…”

“I want you to know how much I appreciate you for helping me…You have a terrific team, very patient, helpful and understanding. You all went above and beyond the call to help me out and I will never forget it. I don’t know what I would have done without all of you.”

Rita C. – Long Valley

EX-FOR SALE BY OWNER

“To Kelly & all the members of the team…

I want to thank you for the very positive experiences my husband and I have had since listing our home with you. Because my husband had sold 2 homes previously for relatives, we decided to try the FSBO – For Sale By Owner – route. After listing our home on several FSBO sites, we did have 1 showing, and several e-mail inquiries, although there were no offers. I was concerned about wasting our time with people who were not qualified to buy, as well as how to get our house the attention it needed to attract was the right buyer. After meeting with Kelly and learning how the team would price our home, and then market it to receive maximum exposure, we decided to list. We have had numerous showing (6 within the first 3 days alone) which resulted in multiple offers. Less than 3 weeks after listing our home, we have a signed contract.

I truly believe that the marketing strategies and professionalism of the Holmquist Team is what made the difference with the selling of our home. Although it may still be possible to do a FSBO, if you have a plenty of time, legal and advertising skills, this tough real estate market is one that is best handled by the professionals! Thank you all so much for your efforts on our behalf.

Regards,

Kathy
Allamuchy, NJ”
Kathy – Allamuchy

“Your Knowledge and Expertise have been extremely valuable.” 

Hi Kelly and Ron –

I just wanted to thank you both very much for your expertise and help in getting my house listed and reviewing the offers.  I realize I still have a way to go in the process but your knowledge and professionalism have been extremely valuable to me!

Thank you again for all the efforts.

Best regards,

Regina  – Mt. Olive
