"Maryanne was amazing! I could get a hold of her whenever we needed to. She made the entire home buying process, even the last minute problems, a good experience for me. She was patient, diligent, throughout it all. Her energetic responses to the varying demands that arose constantly exceeded my expectations.
​​ I don’t think our family would be in our home right now if it wasn’t for the hard work that Maryanne put in. I would never want to use anyone else for buying or selling a home. A true Professional!

"My family and I worked with Maryanne. She sold our home and helped us purchase our dream home. She made the entire process smooth. She was there with us every step of the way. At one point, the deal for our new home almost feel through. It was Maryanne who was there to save the day. She ensured the deal went through. She is able to be reached via email or phone at all times. She responds quickly and answers any and all questions. If you want to sell or purchase a home, don't go to anyone else!!!"

" It was truly a pleasure working with you. You are a true professional who is a student of your market as well as people, and what makes them tick. It is evident that you have high standards and that is one of many characteristics that differentiate you in your field. While you are very successful in real estate, you would do very well in any field you chose to enter.
I recognize our price point was not an easy sell in Wyckoff. I appreciated your candor along the way as well as your read of the situation at many different points in time along the path to negotiating and closing the deal.
I wish you many blessings in your new company as well as your own journey in life. Continue to have super high standards and build trusting relationships with all your clients as great fortune and success will always follow. May you find maximum fulfillment in building your career while balancing a full and rich life.

"Maryanne is marvelous!! The ultimate professional. She worked with my mother to sell her home and buy a condo and she was wonderful. She is a shrewd negotiator and a calming presence- could not recommend more highly!"

"Moving….ugh!! There’s a reason why they say it’s one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. Doing it twice in a year’s time is stress on steroids. You need a competent, knowledgeable professional to guide the way. That is why, over everyone else, we chose Maryanne Elsaesser. Maryanne and her team helped us through every step of preparation, staging, and negotiation, often going above and beyond, to complete the sale of our home. Saying good-bye to the home where you lived and raised your family for eighteen years can be very emotional. Even the write-up she did on our listing was so personal and touching, paying homage to our family and all the sports, activities, holidays and memories that took place in our home. She then helped us find a rental property where we could comfortably downsize while we searched for our next home. That transaction was not without challenges, but thanks to Maryanne’s calm demeanor and out-of-the-box thinking, she made it happen. Next came the search for a new home. Maryanne was able to help us land the perfect home at the right price, even though the spring market was very competitive and very affected by Covid-19. Again, skillfully guiding us with her depth of knowledge through inspections and negotiations, her expertise brought the deal to a close. Throughout all three very unique and very stressful transactions, Maryanne and her team were there for us from the most major challenges to the smallest details. We are now happily beginning the next chapter of our lives in the perfect home! We cannot recommend her enough!"

"Maryanne rocks! She gets it done, it's that simple! We listed our home with another agent first, I won't get into details but it didn't go as I had hoped or been promised. Then comes Maryanne, she is calm, kind and funny. She knows her stuff, she has an in depth knowledge of homes and construction and is a second generation real estate investor, because of that she is recognized for her negotiating skills on inspection items that may come up, you know what I mean when the buyer asks you to basically rebuild the house for them or asks for a ridiculous credit. She has your back the whole time and coaches you through the process so you keep the most in your pocket. She is confident truthful and always makes you feel like you are the most important person in her life by responding promptly and taking time to talk you through things. I can't say enough about her. She becomes your friend and best advocate. If you need a resource she's got one in two seconds. I highly recommend her she is the best!"
-Joe Tarantino | SELLER | Franklin Lakes, NJ

"We just bought a house with Maryanne as our broker, and, since I want to believe that all these reviews are honest and genuine, I'd genuinely like to offer mine. Both the stellar and the other kind. The stellar: It took less than 5 minutes of rapid-fire conversation with Maryanne-- and just on the phone! Not even facetime! A random cold-call on a Sunday morning!-- for my husband and me to realize that we'd lucked out... and that, after 3 years of searching for a house we couldn't visualize, let alone agree on, we were ready, with this person on the phone, to commit. If you've ever known someone whose profession seems to line up so perfectly with their skill set that you can't imagine them doing anything else, you will recognize this in Maryanne within 5 minutes-- sooner if she happens to be standing in mud, in good shoes, scrutinizing a sewer repair. She is one part structural engineer, one part savvy market pro, one part psychotherapist, one part compulsive truth-teller, one part righteous negotiator, and one part "that guy who knows a guy who's got a guy." She's everything you want in the person you will barely know, but whose solid ground you are suddenly depending on as you contemplate spending the most money you likely ever will on something you'll have seen maybe 3 times, if you're lucky. Because, honestly, all you really need to know is this: Maryanne knows her stuff--all of it. And you can trust her. But there is, sadly, a negative. Somewhere, early on in the process, both my husband and I got the distinct impression that Maryanne came with the house. And, quite honestly, that IS actually why we bought the house and yes, I'm a little annoyed because--Where are you, Maryanne??? I mean, yes, we could conceivably move on to a life without you... a life in which you don't show up with pizza, or that giant "authentic NJ sandwich" thing that we tried for two days to eat but it just kept getting bigger... Or some fluffy white towels, because we obviously look like the sort of people who would not remember which box our towels were in. Or if there even was a towel box. A life in which I don't call in an SOS to you on a Sunday night asking how to close the dryer door (In my defense, "Just pull up on the door and then close it" did not appear in any of the 5 languages in the manual.) But we love our house... no, that's not enough-- We're in love with our house. And we wouldn't be here if not for you. So, thank you. PS (I do worry that I'm not fully appreciating the particular nuances of the "Glide N' Access" vs the "Glide N' Serve" drawers of the refrigerator... even getting past the sloppy usage of the missing-letter-apostrophe . Can you come right over?"

"We first contacted Maryanne a full year before listing our house for sale. At the time we were unsure if it was a good time to move, for us or the market. Maryanne's transparency and honesty stood out from the other brokers we were speaking with and ultimately we decided to wait a little to sell our house. Maryanne told us to call when ready, a refreshing departure from the numerous, repetitive follow ups we received from others urging us to list immediately and using scare tactics about timing the market.
Fast forward a year, when we called Maryanne about listing our home she remembered exactly who we were, our circumstances, and our goals for selling. She provided honest advice on pricing, timing, and how best to get our home ready to sell. Her recommendations were quick, cost effective, and helped our house stand out in a crowded market. We encountered a little bit of a bumpy ride during the selling process due to many unforeseen hiccups (rising interest rates, skittish buyers, minor inspection issues). Throughout the selling process, Maryanne's steady and calming influence, professionalism, and contacts (so grateful for her contacts, from painters to contractors, to inspectors) remedied every curveball thrown at us. In the hands of someone who cared less, selling could have been a stressful nightmare but Maryanne had a solution for everything.
Maryanne doesn't want to just sell your house, she wants the best for you and your family. At no point during our almost two years of communication did we feel pressured, uncomfortable, or have a doubt that our home sale would be successful. Maryanne always kept our best interest at the forefront, sifting through offers that were the best for our situation and navigating inspections, paperwork, and all the necessary details to ensure a smooth transaction. We would recommend Maryanne to anyone buying or selling a house who wants a personal touch and not to feel like a transaction. We would not hesitate to use her for any future real estate needs, and we can't thank her enough.!
