Testimonials

We recently sold our Bergen county, NJ home thanks to the patience, professionalism, and above and beyond support of Maureen at McSpirit and Beckett real estate. Maureen stayed with, kept us in the game and made sure that we were able to maximize the value of the property. Thanks for all the hard work.
 
 Regards, Alex

When you've tried the rest then it's time for the best!  Maureen McSpirit is the one you want on your team when selling your house.  Anyone can list your house on the MLS...anyone can make appointments for showings or hold open houses...BUT not everyone can be strategic and negotiate through so many hurdles that inevitably arise during the process as Maureen does. 
 
Maureen takes the position of being on your team and acts in your best interest versus just trying to make the sale.  She also gets an offer in record time at the right number.  All this makes a world of difference in your Real Estate Broker.
 
Thank you Maureen and Bill for being so instrumental in selling our Englewood Cliffs property so quickly so we could start our "Island Living" now!

Dear Maureen & Bill, It was a pleasure dealing with such competent and conscientious people - whether working with Maureen, Bill or any of their other agents. Maureen has great insight in selling homes in Englewood Cliffs. She is very easy to work with and is very responsive to ones needs. Her recommendations and suggestions helped to facilitate the sale of my house.

Maureen & Bill,

 When it came time to sell my house I went with Maureen McSpirit; she made sure that the entire process went smoothly, from listing to closing. She was wonderfully positive, professional, really knows what she is doing and kept me informed every step of the way. If I bought or sold again I would certainly go with McSpirit & Beckett. --

Lori,
Thanks for all your help. You made it look so easy!!! You are a pro, Thanks again. If I know anyone looking that area I will certainly recommend you Lori Courtney!!!  
Seller of 9 Seminole in Dumont

There were a lot of realtors we could have chosen to handle the sale of our home in Dumont but, as soon as we met Lori Courtney, we knew she was the right realtor for us.  We were relocating immediately to a new state and needed to sell our home as soon as possible.  With Lori’s knowledge of Dumont itself and the real estate market in our area, she recommended an “on point” selling price and guided us through to a successful sale.  Having sellers located 340 miles away is not easy and Lori went the extra mile on so many occasions!  Whether it was meeting different contractors at the house or locating lawn care and clean up companies, she always came through for us. Thank you so much, Lori, we couldn’t have done this without you!  Sincerely, Chris & Karissa Walsh

Yvette was such a pleasure to work with during our home buying experience. She was VERY responsive and provided listings that met our criteria almost daily. While in the process of closing with our home we referred Yvette to a family member for a rental and she found them something in a matter of   a couple weeks....Pretty AWESOME! Thank you Yvette for all your assistance during/after our home buying experience!!!!! Look out for further referrals soon! Mivia -



Maggie,
Thanks for helping me accomplish my dream of home ownership.  You absolutley went above and beyond, and I couldn't have done it without you.  It was a GREAT experience working with you.
We LOVE our new house!!!
New Owner Blauvelt/Dumont

Yvette has been a blessing to my family in helping us find the perfect home, from getting us the right fit throughout the process of actually closing on the home, it was a hard and bumpy mortgage  process for us, but yvette has been there for us throughout. As first time homebuyers, we had very   minimal knowledge of the home buying process, yvette explained the process to us in steps, she is the best realtor I could ever work with, I would without doubt request her service in the future, she is now like part of the family. Thank you so much Yvette.

Bert Ferati sold our house in Tenafly in less than 30 days and at a great price!
We had the house listed with a national real estate firm for six months and never had an offer.  Bert surpassed our expectations of a realtor.  He was enthusiastic, diligent and above all believed in the value of our home.  He also found us the perfect home for us in Alpine.  We can not sing his praises enough!

We had the true pleasure and good fortune to work with Maureen and Bill in buying a home. They were accessible around the clock, honest, committed to us as clients, and most importantly trustworthy. It was evident from day one that they sincerely had only our best interests at heart. We trusted their guidance and welcomed their valuable insight. The concept of time was never used to put any pressure on us, or to force our decisions. When the selection of homes on the market did not meet our standards, Maureen and Bill went above and beyond by continuously thinking outside the box. It was their creativity and resourcefulness that found us the beautiful house we proudly call home today. We can say confidently that no other broker would have taken the leaps and bounds Maureen and Bill took. Rest assured they have a reliable supporting team, and a network of trusted resources, all who are equally impressive. We cannot say enough about their high standards of professionalism and level of personal attention. We would without a doubt recommend McSpirit & Beckett to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property. We could not have asked for a more rewarding experience and look forward to working with them again. Simply put, Maureen and Bill are the true exception in the world of real estate.

We're pretty sure Maureen and Bill found us the last home we'll ever buy. But if we are ever in the market again, there is no question about who our agents will be. They are warm, friendly, patient and care first and foremost about your situation. Maureen kept us informed at all times – and at all hours, both during the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one. She never lost patience with us, never missed an appointment and was always upbeat and confident that she would help us get what we wanted. And she did! When you're a client of McSpirit & Beckett, you really feel like you're their only client.

~ Colleen and Greg Wilson/Cresskill


Dear Lori
  Just a few words to thank you for helping me sell my mother's house in Englewood. It wasn't an easy sell but you kept your patience with me and we got it done!
   Thank you for your help.

Purchasing your first home can be stressful, but not with Maureen. She is not your typical realtor. Her expertise, patience, honesty and warm personality made it a wonderful and seamless experience. She is the best!

We had the good fortune of choosing McSpirit and Beckett when we decided to sell our home.  How did we come to choose them?  My sister used them when she sold her home, and what better recommendation then from a sister!  This was our first time to sell a home, so this was new to us, but Maureen and Bill were terrific.  They were there every step of the way, from open houses, to home inspections, even stepping in when the buyer’s bank was delaying the process.  You can’t go wrong with McSpirit & Beckett.

Maureen and Bert,

Jim and I wanted to thank you both so much for all the time and hard work you put in to helping us find our first home.  As first time buyers with little knowledge of what to expect, you made the process effortless and enjoyable.  Even after a few disappointing, unforeseen circumstances at the beginning of our search, your reassuring attitude and dedication to helping us get what we were looking for was greatly appreciated.  You were both there at a moment's notice, always eager to share your advice and expertise.  It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we hope to do so again in the future.

Ryan and Jim

 

We just closed on our home on Jan 6th and I cannot think of a better way to start the year. Yvette played such a big role in helping us own our first home. She really worked within our budget and made herself available at all times to help with any questions/concerns. She was very   friendly/accommodating to my extended family who would want to tag along for the house viewings. As we got closer to our closing she reminded us of the small things we had to do to get ready for our first home. Since she's a resident of the town her knowledge of where everything is and where the schools were located was very helpful. I highly recommend Yvette as a realtor and am 100% you will be pleased.

Dear Maureen and Bill,
 
I want to thank you and Bill so very much for your patience, diligence and kindness.  We plan to stay in the one bedroom for a while, but will contact you if our plans change.  I will recommend you every chance I get. You deserve all the best -- success and blessings!  Again, thank you so much!

Dear Gerri:
Billy and I both want to thank you so much for all the time and love you put into selling our home.  After living there 40 years it was so difficult to sell our home that held so many memories.  You walked with us on this journey both professionally and personally.  It is hard in these times we live in to find someone who truly felt from her heart how hard it was.  We still cannot believe how fast our house was sold.  We truly thought it would take months to sell, not weeks.  I truly believe that your presentation of our home was due to you.  We do not know how to thank you, but think of us now with our five beautiful grandchild and how happy we are. 
 
Love,
Mary Ann & Billy                                        
 
 
 
We were so blessed when we listed our house with u, love you and want everyone to know you are the one and only realtor
anyone should ever use. We will tell everyone how great u r  and how quickly you got the job
done. Thanks  for all you did.

Maureen and Bill,

I want to thank you in helping my son and his wife find and purchase their home.  It was a pleasure to work with both of you.  Your personal service and patience was extremely helpful in the purchase of their first house.  You made yourselves available and showed us properties on very little notice and we never felt rushed when looking at potential prospects.

Your knowledge of the area was priceless for them as you were able to steer these first time buyers back on course when the started to stray out of frustration and continued to find properties you knew would be good for them.  I think the home you helped them find and purchase will be one they will stay in a very long time.

You are truly gifted in this field and it was refreshing to have this experience versus the ones we had with other firms in the area.  Your honesty and integrity was very much appreciated.  Your professionalism and personal service showed through time and again.  I enjoy real estate and may some day enter the field.  When, and if I do,  I hope to work in a company that has the same philosophy and workings that we experienced from McSpirt & Beckett.

Thank you again.

Janet Carmack

Eileen Mellay
"My fiance and I would like to extend our deepest gratitude for the amazing feat Eileen performed in the purchase of our new house. It was purely chance that we met up with Eileen, but an absolute miracle that she was able to make things work out in our favor. After several disappointing attempts to enter the real estate market, Eileen reassured us that our dream house was waiting for us and she would make sure we found it. Thanks to her persistence and willingness to go to bat for her clients, Eileen not only made it possible for us to purchase our dream house, but she personally handled any roadblocks that popped up along the way. I would love to say that we are looking foward to using Eileen again in the future, but she did more than locate us a house, she found us a home. We don't plan on ever moving."
Abound with Gratitude,

"Hey Maureen, 

I want to say one more time that you were absolutely incredible to me and my family during this difficult time of our lives. Your truly helped keep our sanity intact with your watchful eye on our mother's house and taking care of things that came up (like the hot water heater) and the like. You gave us peace of mind that couldn't have been provided in any other way.

You were not only a pleasure to interact with, and so very much "a real person", but you were always gracious and courteous and never made me feel like you doing me a favor by conducting business with me or that I was disturbing you.

Your kindness will never be forgotten, Maureen, thank you for making such a wonderful difference in our lives..."

"Dear Maureen and Eileen, 

We want to pass along our heartfelt appreciation for all your hard work and attention to our needs during the sale of our home and purchase of our new home. As you both know buying and selling a home at the same time can be quite a difficult task. Every step of the way you were extremely cognizant of what needed to be done to make things happen.

We would like to let all of your potential customers know what great realtors you are. Anyone who is buying and selling a home at the same time would benefit greatly from your dedication to your clients.

You were able to sell our house for more than we expected and in a very short time. You also knew exactly what we wanted in a home and found us the perfect home for our family, we could not be happier.  

Please feel free to share this letter with any prospective clients.

Thank you again."

"Dear Eileen,  

We just wanted to thank you so very much for a job well done.  Our only regret is that we put our house in the hands of another agency before coming to you.  You saved us so much time, energy and money.  Your efforts and great personality had made this experience quite enjoyable.  Selling a house in 3 weeks in this market is almost unheard of, so again we really thank you, commend you, and look forward to doing business with you in the future.  

Please feel free to share this letter with future clients".

"Eileen Mellay,

"We wanted to personally thank Mrs. Eileen Mellay for her great effort in helping us look for a home.  She made the search an extremely pleasant experience.  Eileen got quickly a listing that fit our criteria and price range, and was able to show us a variety of houses to allow us to compare what we could get for our money.
She could not have been more helpful, showing us houses even on the morning of the 4th of July!!

We would recommend Eileen to anyone who is looking for a qualified, professional and reliable broker.
We wish her the best."

"Hi Eileen,

We are writing this letter to express our appreciation and gratitude for you and your services.
We interviewed several agents before choosing you to represent us in the sale of our home.  However, we selected you because you were very realistic in describing the market and priced our home accordingly.
You are a noble professional and a delight to the real estate arena.  You managed to keep the stress level at a minimum and sell our house in three weeks.
We will never forget all the personal favors as well as professional encouragement you gave us.
Thanks again, and good luck in your future real estate dealings.

Gratefully yours,

 I recently closed on the sale of my house in New  Milford with this elite agency.  My agent was Eileen Mellay, a confident, down to earth, easy to communicate with agent, who never left out one detail and handled the sale with total professionalism. 
 I actually tried for 4 months to sell the house on my own with one of these .com agents and got nothing but promises with not one contract.   When I was at my wits end from showing the house on my own, I finally called and spoke to Eileen at  McSpirit& Beckett.  Right away I felt like I was in good hands and knew I had nothing to worry about.  She knew New  Milford very well as well as the surrounding towns and went out of her way on a daily basis to bring new prospects to show the house off to.   It didn't take long for her to find a buyer and from contract to closing, it went so smoothly, I'm going to  recommend her to anyone I know who's selling or buying.    
   Thanks Eileen and  McSpirit&Becket!!
                      
Very  truly yours,

Maureen did a tremendous job with helping me sell my home and purchase a new home in this difficult real estate environment.  She went beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything worked out in every phase of the process -- obtaining the mortgage, working with the inspector, dealing with the lawyers, following up on sales leads, etc.  Maureen's dedication to her clients, real estate expertise and pleasant personality made the experience a wonderful one.

Maureen & Bill,

We wanted to thank you for all the hard work and professionalism you put forth in selling our home.  In a difficult selling environment you were able to bring many qualified buyers to view our home.  You were candid in terms of our expectations and kept us informed during the process.

Therese and I made the decision to work with your company because we wanted owner agents with someskin in the game as opposed to the larger brokers who stick a sign in the front yard and wait for the house to sell.  When we received an offer you handled the negotiation, coordinated with all the parties involved, and drove the process through the closing.

We are very happy we chose you to represent us in this process and would highly recommend you to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a home.

Sincerely,

"Dear Lori,
I want to take the time to thank you for your expertise in selling my home on Manhattan Terrace in Dumont.  I couldn't believe you were able to sell it, listing to closing, in under three months during the slow holiday season.  It must have been all the time you invested in open houses, follow-ups and marketing my house.  I know most agents just list it and disappear, letting the house sell itself.  Thank you for all of your personalized attention.  I felt as though I had my own private realtor!!"

"Bill,
Please extend our thanks to Maureen and the rest of the office staff for their dedicated and professional efforts.  True to your word, you fulfilled every promise made the day we decided to list with McSpirit & Beckett.

Everyone had us believing the market was so slow our house would never sell.  In early January you realized our needs, assured us there were buyers out there, listed our home, held open houses, kept in constant contact and sold the house in less than three months.  Thank you for being so sincere and staying committed to our family.

We look forward to having the opportunity to recommend McSpirit & Beckett to our family and friends!

Many Thanks!"

Dear Eileen:

 

I would like to thank you again for all of your help and attention during the purchase of my home.  I really appreciate the time and patience you showed me during the exchange of paper work and the application process. 

 

It is a wonderful experience to buy a home.  Eileen, I have to tell you that you have a wonderful sense of humor as well as a huge heart and this makes you a wonderful agent.  This home would have never been purchased without your help, I cant thank you enough, for making this reality. I also appreciated all the time you spend speaking to me directly, for McSpirit & Beckett assistance in returning my phone calls promptly, and for making me feel comfortable throughout the process.

 

Thank you for all the time and effort you put into my purchase. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.  I will not hesitate to recommend your excellent agency and service to my family and friends.

 

Sincerely,
