Testimonials

To any prospective seller or buyer:

Helen Dorman has been our real estate broker for the sale of two homes and purchase of two homes.  She has been a delight to work with and has proven to be the ultimate professional. 

Selling our second home in a difficult market was a very time consuming task, but Helen was invaluable as she helped us to prepare our house for sale.  Her intelligence and attentiveness allowed her to fully understand our needs.  In fact, she knew before we did that the townhouse we eventually purchased would be just right for us. 

Helen also educated us on the current market and trends.  She not only recommended how to price our home but also patiently showed us how it compared to other properties.  All of this resulted in the sale of our house in a timely manner.  While others remained unsold on the market, we sold ours and happily settled in our new home.

In addition, Helen is an expert negotiator.  She makes the transactions pleasant while retaining good relationships with her colleague realtors.  She is efficient, discrete and always available to answer our questions and coach or encourage us with an almost immediate response (even when she was halfway around the world on vacation.)

With her upbeat demeanor and years of experience, Helen makes a stressful process less so.  In addition, the deep roots she has in the community combined with her extensive knowledge of the market make her a true partner throughout the process.  Her care and attention extend past contracts and closings, as she even helped us to find the best service people to tend to our new home.

Although we hope not to be moving for a very long time, if we did, we would definitely be giving Helen a call.  You should, too!

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter on behalf of Helen Dorman.  Helen is a most amazing real estate agent.  In an impossible market, she was able to sell our house for us in three weeks time.  Her advice was invaluable; not only for the immediate sale, but in advising us on what we should do in order to prepare our house for sale.  Helen advised us to remove our oil tank from the ground.  She advised us to redo our septic system.  Helen was able to advise us as to how to sell a house without central air conditioning in the middle of the hottest summer on record!  In addition, Helen’s contacts within the town of New Castle were invaluable. 

Not only did we find a great real estate agent with Helen, but a true friend as well. She was always there to answer our questions and to advise us when we were unsure about accepting a bid.  She’d call us just to make sure we were okay.

Helen Dorman is a gem!

Hi Helen - I want you to know how much I appreciate all that you have accomplished in representing and selling Horace Greeley's Rehobeth House. Throughout the entire process, from preliminary discussions to the closing, you have been skillful, professional, and truly helpful. And perhaps most importantly, you maintained a sense of poise and good humor. It has been a pleasure to work with you from beginning to end.

Sincerely,

Dear Helen,

We were just commenting to other friends about your excellent approach to the sale of my Mother’s home in Katonah.  You have a realistic sense of the market and work incredibly hard for the seller.  It was a total pleasure to both know you and work with you.  Your guidance through a few rough spots helped us feel confident with every aspect of the sale.

We are pleased to recommend you to anyone who would be interested in either buying or selling a home.  Again, your expertise made the process move smoothly and without any “hitches”.

Best wishes,

Diane and Howard

I am writing about Ms. Helen Dorman, who is my realtor in both the sale of my home and the finding of a nice rental apartment for me.

Ms. Dorman's skill sets include not only superb knowledge of the local real estate market in all its nuances, but being a warm, kind, very helpful person who was always there for me, whether my problem was large or small. Her helpfulness did not end when the home was sold, which is also of great importance.

I can highly recommend her without any reservations whatsoever.

Dear Helen:

Words cannot fully describe how you managed the listing and sale of our house last month.

The house was initially listed on Friday, prospective buyers came on Saturday, and you called on Sunday morning to let us know that there were two credible offers – one at the listing price, the other above the listing price. How often does this happen? We know that is a result of how you staged the house, drafted the offering sheet, and capitalized on your sterling reputation in the Millwood market.

Again, many thanks for an outstanding job,

Most sincerely,

Susan & Donald Weisstuch
