I worked with Beverly to purchase a property in 2012, and to sell the property in 2014. She is professional, diligent, and very supportive. Beverly guided me through a short sale, and kept me reassured during the process. Thereafter, she helped me sell the condo with a demanding timeline. Beverly has excellent market knowledge, and a great team in place. She will get you the deal!

Helped me rent a home in Orchard Heights, East Brunswick, NJ 08816.

Beverly was very dedicated to not only finding us a home,She also learned enough about what we were looking for that she found a perfect town home with all the amenities we were looking for and even more. She was always very professional and always answered our calls promptly. I cannot say enough good things about Beverly, once we found our place I actually felt as if I lost a friend.

Bought a home in 2013.

I hooked up with Beverly Lyons by chance via on-line resources. When I 1st contacted her, she was out of country, but I patiently waited for her return. Oh, I am so glad that I did. I have not only met an awesome Real Estate Professional; I also found a new dear friend that God put in my life. I had one of the toughest real estate buying experiences ever, and although I thought this deal would not happen, it happened. Yayyy!! Beverly stuck by me, Beverly never wavered, Beverly ROCKED!! I am so blessed that I have now closed and currently in the midst of making my home pretty, and I owe that to the professionalism Beverly processes. You will not go wrong by choosing her.... Thank you Bev..Angela Kilgore in NJ

Sold a home in 2013 in Piscataway, Edison, NJ 08817.

Words cannot describe how Beverly has helped me and my family find a home. This is our first home purchase and we honestly had no idea how to even start the process. We simply called her and she has guided us from point A to Z. We were so picky being that it is our first home so it took us over a year to find our dream home. She never once complained that we were taking too long and seemed so understanding of how stressful this whole process can be. We no longer look at her as just our real estate agent; we now view her as a family friend. We can call her at anytime during the day or night and she will always answer and help us with whatever issue we bring to her. Even after the closing on the house she still continues to visit us and help us. She even brought us her own landscaping equipment over because we didn’t get the chance to buy anything since we never had a house before. No other real estate agent will do anything like that AFTER the closing. Definitely would recommend her to anyone looking for a house or rental property as she has helped us with both.

Showed home in 2013.

I met Mrs Beverly Lyons three weeks ago in East Brunswick. My family and I are interested in acquiring a home in the New Brunswick/East Brunswick area and Mrs. Lyons was very instrumental in assisting us with our needs. She took her time in explaining to us the processes involved and was very willing to accommodate us with all our questions and concerns. My son called her after 8:00 p.m. one night and she took his call and was able to meet us and take us around to show us some more houses. Mrs. Lyons is very knowledgeable, have a very pleasant personality and is very willing to assist. We are still in the process of finding our home and I am very confident that working with Mrs Lyons we will soon be moving into the home of our dreams.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in East Orange, NJ.

My wife and I decided to do a Short Sale of our house and read all the wonderful reviews on Beverly and thought she would be the perfect fit for us. Unfortunately, it was the complete opposite. We have so many grievances, but here are the highlights:

1. She initially listed the stats of our house incorrectly. I had to call her a few times to correct the listing. When you're trying to sell your house, it's important that the amount of bedrooms, bathrooms and garages are listed correctly.

2. She did not respond timely to the bank negotiator’s requests. Our bank negotiator would call us complaining that Beverly would not return his calls and there things he needed her to action.

3. Even more importantly she did not return our calls timely. We need a new place to live upon selling our house and my wife would make appointments with her to look at apartments. On several occasions Beverly would be M.I.A.(missing in action), or she would show up late – she was just very disinterested. On some instances she would even enlist her husband - a realtor in training to show my wife apartments. We did not hire her husband, we hired Beverly Lyons and she totally disrespected us. We eventually found our own apartment.

When you are going through a stressful ordeal like a Short Sale, you need a Realtor that’s going to fight for you, not some unengaged agent that treats you like an after thought.

Thank God our house showed very well and the family that put in the offer were patient and very motivated to purchase our house. The only 2 things that we thank Beverly for is: posting the pictures of our house on the internet and recommending Real Estate attorney. Aside from that, she was incredibly lacking.

It’s a damn shame she collected a check for doing hardly any work!! The Real Estate attorney should have gotten her commission.

If you want a dedicated, responsive, respectful Real Estate Agent, this is not the person for you. Trust me find someone else.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $250K in North Brunswick, NJ.

This was my first house so I was a nervous wreck the whole time. Beverly kept me calm and re-assured me along the way. When it came down to negotiating the price of the property, she was tough and stood her ground. The price she got was $14k below the asking price and it turned out to be only $2k below the assessed value of the property. I couldn't have asked for a better Agent than Beverly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in East Brunswick, NJ.

As first-time home-buyers planning to move New Jersey, we contacted Beverly in May 2012 eager and anxious to find a house and close before the summer so our kids could get acclimated to our new community.

Beverly assured us that we will find a house and she will “close the deal” by our deadline. Based on our discussions, Beverly arranged many home viewings and never showed frustration when we requested to see a few houses more than once. She was patient, considerate and accommodating through the entire process. She knew our target area very well and provided valuable inputs which helped with our decision.

Beverly negotiated on our behalf and communicated information we needed to know immediately as she liaison on our behalf with the seller. She “closed the deal” and we closed on our home within 30 days. Beverly is amazing as she continued to be a resource to us even after we moved into our home.

Bought a home in 2012 in Fresh Ponds, South Brunswick, NJ 08902.

I contacted Beverly a few months ago after reviewing her profile here in Zillow. My wife and I were looking to purchase our first home and after identifying a property, we were searching for a buyer's agent to represent our interest. We scheduled a meeting at her office to go over the process and it went well. She was professional and seemed like a nice person to work with. We are purchaing from a builder and asked Beverly to negotiate a slightly lower price for us but that did not materialize as it is normal for builders to have very little to no room for price negotiation. We finally agreed to a price and had scheduled a date to sign the purchase agreement. The entire process left a very bad taste in our mouths because of a few reasons but more inportantly these two. 1. Beverly wasn't very responsive. I would sent emails with questions to her and would have to follow up with calls to get a response. She made promises to provide us with information and would not deliver until I had to follow up with a call. I understand that people can be busy so this was not a huge problem although not what I had expected. 2. The most fustrating thing happened on the day we were scheduled to sign our purchase contracts. We were supposed to meet at the builder's office at 11AM and Beverly DID NOT show up. Not only did she not show up, but she did not call, email, text or give us any heads up. We attempted to reach her via phone calls, text msgs, and emails but got no reponse. Sometime after 10PM that night I recieved a TEXT MSG from her stating she could not make it due to a death in her family.

We're intelligent and rational people. I certainly wouldn't expect her to make the meeting if she's dealing with a loss but it's common professional courtesy to give us a call or send me an email saying sorry but I wont be able to make it. To this date (its been 3 months), we haven't gotten a call, email or anything else from Beverly to even ask 'How'd it go'. Our last communication was the text she sent that night. She's aware that we've signed the contract and I'm sure she'll sure up after we closed the property next spring to collect her check. I don't ever write reviews but I just had to because we weren't treated with any regartd or respect and we were very disappointed with her services.
