Testimonials - Short Sales

Reviews from my Clients

“After living in my home for 2 years and going through a divorce I realized I could not afford to pay my mortgage. So I called Tess Downey (who had helped me purchase my home in 2010). She advised me on what steps to take in order to sell my house. I did not want to lose my home to foreclosure and ruin my credit for years! Tess put my home on the market and 6 months later… my home was sold! We avoided foreclosure and my credit was only going to be affected for a couple of years. Tess worked diligently to sell my house and always kept me informed as to what was happening. She was always easy to contact, either by text, email or phone. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home!”    Hilda L. – January 2013

“When you want to sell a house or do a short sale I give Tess my highest recommendation. Not only does she know the short sale laws, but she knows how to use them. When the note holder gets difficult Tess is a WARRIOR and she will fight for you. Thanks to Tess I avoided foreclosure and was able to sell my house.”    Dean B. - July 2012

“It’s hard to find the words to express how wonderful Tess Downey is – both as a real estate agent and as a person. She is absolutely AMAZING. First and foremost, Tess is PASSIONATE about what she does, and that passion shows in every aspect of what she does. You can tell it’s more that a job for her, it’s something she loves to do. Her EXPERTISE is amazing, especially in a market that appears to be ever changing. Tess truly CARES about people and it shows when talking to her. She will fight for her clients if the face of injustice. She knows exactly what need to be done if an obstacle arises and will not rest until it is resolved. Tess is HONEST and TRUSTWORTHY. She made the process of selling our home so painless that we were amazed when it was all said and done. There is no real estate agent I would recommend more than Tess Downey. She truly is THE BEST there is!”

“Making the choice to short sale your home is by far the hardest decisions we ever had to make. After dealing with Bank of America for over a year jumping through hoops and hearing all their lies it became very hard to trust anyone dealing in the Real estate industry. We found Tess Downey from ReMax through a Real estate lawyer. I wish we had found her a year earlier and save all the turmoil we went through. She was up front and surprising very honest. Tess guided us through all the paperwork and helped us with H.A.F.A which gave us $3000.00 at closing. It took only 3months from listing to close on our short sale. I Highly Recommend Tess Downey to anyone going through a short sale!!!”   Jeff and Gretchen D. – January 2012

 
“Tess helped us do a short sale on our house. We listed it with Tess at the end of December, and we had several offers within a week. Because Tess knew how to work with the bank, we closed in the middle of February. An amazingly short amount of time for a short sale! Also, we enjoyed getting to know Tess. She is smart, funny, and tough when needed! I have already recommended her to a couple of people.”   Tracy & Kelly A. – January 2012


“Tess sold our short sale in record time for a short sale. She had a great attitude despite a difficult negotiation process with both banks (we had a first and second) and the buyer's agent. She jumped in with both feet, rolled up her sleeves, and got the job done for us - all while tirelessly and immediately answering questions about the process. She gave us VIP treatment throughout. She is knowledgeable, hard-working, kind, pleasant, funny, and tough. I would highly recommend Tess for any RE transaction.”   Genevieve & Robert H. – November 2010
