Michelle is the absolute best! Speaking on behalf of my wife and myself, I say with confidence that we would never have had a successful home purchase process if we weren’t working with her. We met Michelle through Realtor.com. She reached out to us immediately, set up a quick catch-up call, started to share all kinds of information, tips, etc. Since then, Michelle was incredibly responsive to our questions and requests, tremendously knowledgeable of neighborhoods, organized, and cheerful throughout the whole process. In addition to the search itself, Michelle was helpful in every way throughout the process. Examples include (but not limited to): 1) introducing the mortgage lender who gave us the best rates (none of my current bank and mortgage company couldn’t beat it), 2) introducing the inspector who found hidden mold in the house we were interested (we could back off from the purchase contract), 3) suggesting more than one remodeling contractors, plumbers, handymen, cleaning companies, trash companies, etc., 4) contacting the school for our little one and reminding us of its enrollment dates, etc. I know many real estate agents are either completely clueless and disregard everything the buyers say or ask for, are often manipulative salespeople, or both. While I understand that the job is commission based, Michelle is the first real estate agent we ever worked with that we felt genuinely cared and work for us. It’s also worth mentioning that Michelle was consistently positive, upbeat, friendly, solution-oriented, super responsive, super accountable, and super transparent. Long story short, Michelle was an incredible real estate agent and a phenomenal human being. We honestly can’t recommend Michelle more highly and would absolutely welcome the opportunity to work with her again when the time comes. It was a joy and a pleasure partnering with her, and we miss her now that the process is over!
Anuska was awesome!!! We had a great experience working with her. She is a very friendly person and was available whenever we needed her. She helped us feel comfortable and was always ready to answer all our questions. She is very knowledgeable and helped us sail through the buying process smoothly. We highly recommend her as a realtor!!
Kristina helped us find the home that was just right for our needs, being flexible with our strict schedules and demands (most of the showings were on short notice and during weekends). She is patient, honest, offers expert advice, and knows the Manhattan and surrounding markets really well. She went above and beyond the call of duty to help us locate trustworthy contractors for work we needed done before moving into the new property. She even volunteered to help supervise some of the work when we were not available. I can’t thank her and recommend her enough.
Kristina Hafer is the best realtor I have dealt with so far (I purchased and sold four properties in the past). She was highly recommended by my new department, when I decided to move to the Manhattan area. Throughout the several months we interacted, she was professional, helpful and knowledgeable. She showed a genuine interest in getting us the best deal, and followed the inspection with professional quotes on the (quite minor) items that needed addressed, saving us an additional significant amount on the re-negotiated purchase price. But all these can be expected from a good realtor. What made her stand out was the fact that, after the purchase, and when any reasonable person would consider the realtor’s work done, she helped us with replacing the floors. In our absence, she set up appointments with several flooring companies and contractors, got us several quotes, and arranged access to the property for the contractor we finally chose. She even had her husband haul some of the hardwood from Topeka (when the Menards in Manhattan ran out of it). Overall, we could not have been happier — in fact, we kind of feel like we owe her.
Kristina Hafer helped my husband and I buy our first house. Let me say that without Kristina’s help, we would have been so lost! She was very informative, patient, flexible with our schedules, and listened to our needs and concerns. Kristina made our first home buying experience wonderful and we are so glad we went with her. We recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house and will definitely use her in the future!
