Ratings & Reviews

We have experienced buying and selling houses for four and three times respectively. Ilene is by far the best realtor we have encountered. <br/><br/>In last summer, Ilene helped us negotiated and purchased a lakeside house, which is our longtime dream. Her knowledge and skill in negotiation made the purchase possible.<br/><br/>Then we tried to sell our old house with other agent from last June to December (six months), and it went nowhere. In desperation, we asked Ilene’s help in last December. When we signed the contract and discussed the asking price, Ilene told us that she does not agree deliberately to low the price, which is totally different from some real estate agents practice. Since she took over, even at winter time there were more visiting than previous six months. After every visiting, she would immediately sent us an electronic report. She completely understands the anxiety of selling house, and always patiently answers any questions from us promptly. In less than 70 days the house was sold. Through the process, Ilene was very efficient, skillful, cordial and knowledgeable.<br/><br/>Since we were benefitted greatly from Ilene’s professional service in both buying and selling the house, we would like to recommend her without reservation to any people trying to buy or sell house.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $100K in Tolland, CT.

Ilene was fantastic. She was there to help us every step of the way. This is the first time we have ever bought a house and she made the whole experience nearly stress free and got us into the perfect house. She always kept us up to date on everything and even in her absence she assigned another person to help us until she returned. If we ever buy another house we know who to go to!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Enfield, CT.

Ilene has sold 2 houses for me and has negotiated the purchase of my new home. She is very well spoken, absolutely knows real estate inside and out, goes above and beyond what is expected, and always keeps in mind the needs and desires of her client. Ilene keeps open the lines of communication and never hesitates to answer calls. If she does not know the answer to any question she will research and get right back to you. Ilene is the consummate professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 in Willington, CT.

Very professional, reliable and responds back to any questions you have very quickly. She sold our home in three months after being on the market with another realtor for over a year.

Sold a home in 2005.

Ilene helped me purchase my condo upon my divorce. It was the first time I was looking for a home without a husband's assistance. There are so many mechanical systems in a home that I knew very little about--but Ilene knows all about them. From heating and air conditioning to asbestos and lead, everyone needs an expert to help you not buy a lemon. Ilene wasn't primarily interested in making a sale and being done with me--she was primarily interested in helping me buy a home where I'd be happy. She pointed out things that were wrong with places I looked at. She was truly patient in helping me find something right for me. She helped me find an excellent mortgage broker, and helped me feel comfortable that I could handle all expenses on my own. When I sold my condo, I again recruited her help as my listing agent--I made a tidy profit as she'd help me make a wise real estate investment. She's all you could wish for in a Realtor and I have confidently recommended her to friends and colleagues.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $250K in Putnam, CT.

Ilene helped us sell two houses and buy a house which was a battle in today's tough market . Her experience and knowledge made this hard task easy. It is a pleasure to work with someone so professional and honest who really cares and understands your needs.
