Testimonials

Chelsea and Kevin (Helped me buy a home)

JoAnna was extremely helpful in helping us find our new home in such a short amount of time. She was very professional and knowledgeable about real estate. She was always available and answered all of our questions immediately. JoAnna was never pushy and truly showed that she cared about finding us the right home for our family. She definitely went the extra mile for us. We would recommend JoAnna and Gail to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a home. It was a pleasure working with them!

 

Lenny (Helped me buy a home)

JoAnna and Gail know the real estate business extremely well. They used their expertise to help me navigate through all the hurdles associated with buying a home, which was especially difficult for me logistically since I was an out-of-state buyer. They were always responsive to my calls and never lost their patience with me until I finally found what I was looking for. And during the walk-thru on the day of closing, they were wonderful. They found some problems that were not flagged during the home inspection. I was then able to use this information as a negotiating point at closing.

 

Sean and Elise (Helped me sell and buy a home)

JoAnna and Gail helped us sell our home and buy a bigger home for our family. These ladies are the best! They have been honest, hardworking, and a pleasure from beginning to end. They came in as a team and work that way. One of them is always available to answer a question, or solve a problem. True professionals, they assist you in showing your home and figuring out what you need in a new home. They are well informed on all the costs through the process. Their service is very personal, my kids know and love them. They helped my kids decorate their room!!! Would recommend them 100%!

 

Chris and Natalie (Helped me buy a home)

My fiancée and I were first time home buyers. JoAnna was very knowledgeable and helped us throughout the process answering all our questions.  She guided us through the process as a friend more than just a realtor. She was great helping us as we looked at different houses. JoAnna made sure we found a house that we would love as our home! JoAnna and Gail are the team to go with and I’m glad we got to work with them.

 

Brian and Janine (Helped me sell and buy a home)

We had just started thinking about moving when we found the house of our dreams and had not even put our home up for sale. We were impressed with the team from the start; it seemed like they had our old home up for sale and listed on all the websites overnight. I actually lost count of the number of showings we had. It did not take long for us to receive multiple offers. In addition they were able to help us negotiate and ultimately buy the house we had targeted. They are both very knowledgeable of the local market as well as the real estate process in general. They both give a lot of themselves to the process and honestly care about making their clients happy. Having said that they are also not afraid to tell you like it is which I for one really appreciated. If you are in the market or even thinking about it, don’t waste your time with other realtors. Just give JoAnna and Gail a call.

 

Billy and Filomena (Helped me buy a home)

As a first time home buyer, the amount of hesitations and unknowns that come along with the process are endless. I personally felt like JoAnna guided me the whole way as a friend not my realtor. She made sure I met every deadline and always offered help to reach them. She would answer every single email, text and phone call immediately. She went above and beyond all my expectations. I promise any experience with JoAnna and Gail will be a pleasant one.

JoAnna rocks!

 

Andy and Agnes (Helped me sell a home)

Both Gail and JoAnna are excellent realtors. My husband and I are very glad that we got to work with them. They are always on top of things. They are very knowledgeable and helpful and are always able to provide additional assistance when necessary to help smooth the selling process. We would definitely work with them again.

 

Ronni and Marie (Helped me sell a home)

JoAnna and Gail go the extra mile and then some, they both are so personal and warm, and they will give you the facts and let you know exactly what you need to do. Ronni and I went back and forth about realtors, but in the end we listened to them, we chose them because we felt that they cared about selling our house, and going the extra mile…. and believe us…they did. They did exactly what they said they would do. YOU can trust Gail and JoAnna, they won’t let you down. Absolutely amazing that they sold our house for the price and the time frame given, especially given the market today. (We also had extra circumstances being that we relocated in the middle of selling this house, no matter…the girls were on it!) These ladies know their stuff and they will meet your needs and guide you in the right direction to sell your home. If you need more info…contact them and they can give you my info…happy to talk to anyone with any hesitations. I will hire them again if ever need be!!!! First and forever!!!!!

 

Ron and Dawn (Helped me buy a home)

As first time homebuyers and relocating from NYC with children we sat with a handful of realtors. We decided we liked JoAnna’s knowledge of the area and market and her straight talking honesty. We met Gail along the way and she brought her qualities into the mix as well and with both ladies on our side it made things so much easier to walk through for the first time. Their patience with us was greatly appreciated because we were lost in the beginning. We never once felt they were trying to put us in a home that was out of our league or pushed us to settle for what was available at the time. I can say that after looking at a few homes JoAnna put the brakes on us and took us to a couple of homes she felt were what we wanted. Well, she nailed it and not too long after we were on our way to closing on our first home. Exactly what we wanted and without all of the stress. Not only would we recommend these ladies to handle one’s real estate needs (and we have) we wouldn’t hesitate to call them again for our own. It was a pleasure.

 

Ted and Tammy (Helped me sell a home and buy a home)

We sold in 6 days after signing the contract with JoAnna and Gail. We received 2 bids in addition to two additional parties very interested in the month of December! Need I say more?  I never thought that we would sell so fast. They work together as a partnership… and they work very hard. I was impressed and amazed at their dedication in getting our home sold. I highly recommend them.

 

Brian and Amanda (Helped me buy a home)

As a first time homebuyer, I felt it was really important to find a real estate agent that took the time to both explain things to me and frequently show me different types of houses to help me better decide on the features most important to my husband and me. What were our “must-haves” versus our “wish list” items? My husband also had a house that we needed to sell, that we had previously tried for over a year to sell with another agent and then on our own. This was also a house ideal for a very specific pool of buyers.

We found our real estate agent, Gail Szeluga, who we used for both buying and selling, through a chance match up when calling Weichert to see one of the their listings. Gail was everything I could have asked for as an agent to a first time homebuyer. First of all, from the start of our listing going on the MLS, she sold our “unsellable” house within 11 days. She guided us through each step of the hectic real estate process for both buying and selling. Gail told us how to get our house presentable for showings and used her expertise to guide us through attorney review (what requests were reasonable) until we had that long awaited sold sign on our front lawn! She was available so often to go look at houses with me that I felt like her only client. She was never pushy, but did give me her honest opinions based on the needs and wants she knew my family had. She stuck with us through our many offers that were turned down, keeping our morale up, until together, we found the perfect house!

Our new baby girl wouldn’t have had the perfect room, in the perfect house to come home to if it wasn’t for Gail Szeluga, and this letter is the least I can write to say thank you!

 

Liz (Helped me buy a home)

JoAnna is great! She cares and takes care of everything. Awesome to work with, will use her services again.

 

Ralph (Helped me sell and buy and then sell another home)

JoAnna and Gail were great to work with in terms of selling my house, particularly in a down housing market. JoAnna and Gail were very helpful, keeping me up to date on my home sale. Would use them again to buy or sell a house.

 

Bob and Chris (Helped me sell and buy a home)

Gail and JoAnna did a great job for us in a difficult market. They were always energetic and resourceful and always willing to go the extra mile. They even took care of our dogs to enable showings that we might otherwise have had to pass on because we were not there to handle the dogs. When our daughter said she wanted to sell her house we directed her to Gail and JoAnna. They delivered for her too, getting her a good price in a short period of time.

 

Gene and Marisa (Helped me buy a home)

JoAnna helped us find our home in Meadow Creek and she was just wonderful. Working with JoAnna to find a home is more like spending time with a friend than working at finding a home. She makes it effortless. I highly recommend JoAnna, she is honest and trustworthy.

 

 Rob and Melissa (Helped me sell a home)

JoAnna helped to make the selling of our home a positive and profitable experience. She simplified the selling process by taking an enormous amount of responsibility for the details. JoAnna scheduled potential buyers, electrical/plumbing inspections, and even the buyer’s home inspector when she, herself, could be present. She provided us with numerous recommendations for how to make our home ready for sale. JoAnna is a true pleasure to work with. In choosing her to be your realtor, you will have a professional who truly has your best interests in mind.

 

Dave and Erica (Helped me buy a home)

We worked with Gail to purchase our first home in April 2012. Gail was extremely knowledgeable on the local market and a pleasure to work with. She gave us great advice and found us exactly the home we were looking for. We look forward to working with her in the future.

 

Herman and Sally (Helped me sell a home)

JoAnna and Gail performed excellent in marketing my house in Morganville, NJ in 2011. Their assistances were more than just the normal marketing and open house routines. They provided excellent recommendation in pricing of the house and assistances in buyer’s home inspection and home appraisal processes. They even interfaced with the township in filing for the CO and helped in correcting the deficiency in the past building permits. I will hire them again if I have another house to sell in New Jersey.

 

James and Flora (Helped me sell a home)

JoAnna Siminerio and Gail Szeluga we two of the greatest realtors I have ever met! From our initial meeting, they were very excited about working with me and my family during such a difficult time in our lives, selling our home due to job relocation.  Both ladies were very knowledgeable of all the governmental requirements and relocation programs. Because they had previous experience, they were able to provide additional guidance to us as customers.

They were very thorough, patient and persistent whether if it was for a CO inspection, appraisals or showing the home. Their professionalism, tenacity and determination always came through on everything they did for us or on our behalf.   Their expertise and dedication to us as a customer allowed us to be at peace while they were selling our home while we were relocated in a new state. They are exceptional realtors and I would highly recommend them for anyone who need great dedicated realtors!!!

 

Sandy and Gerry (Helped me sell a home)

JoAnna and Gail sold our home in the woods in Marlboro. We were in Florida and they took care of everything for us. They were always available and professional and lovely to deal with.

I can’t imagine having a better experience than having them represent us and our house. Even to the point that our attorney was drunk at our closing and JoAnna basically took care of everything he couldn’t do.

I would recommend them to anyone who needs to buy or sell their home.

 

 Joe and Gabrielle (Helped me buy a home)

My husband and I were first time home buyers moving from Brooklyn, NY to Manalapan. We were nervous, scared, excited, and had a million and one questions along the way. Johanna stuck with us throughout the whole process. She answered my calls early in the morning till late at night. If she wasn’t available to take my calls, she always called me back as soon as possible.

JoAnna and Gail are extremely professional, friendly, and honest. They really took the time to get to know me and know what I was looking for in a house. The home buying process was very stressful and if it wasn’t for JoAnna I think I would have pulled all my hair out. She educated me so much throughout the process and really fought for us when making our purchase. She helped us deal with the sellers, lawyers, and banks. She never left our side.

Our relationship did not end after we closed. She continues to be a wonderful friend and resource when I have questions about events, doctors, and businesses in the area. These ladies won’t just find you a house, they will find you a home. They will welcome you to the area with open arms.

Thank you JoAnna and Gail for all your hard work and for caring about me and my family.

 

Yourii and Yuliya (Helped me sell a home)

JoAnna and Gail are the most knowledgeable, helpful, experienced, diligent, honest and hardworking real estate professionals I have ever worked with (and I’ve worked with quite a few in the past) They take their time to understand your needs (be it either a buyer or a seller) and really work hard for you. Then, they make the whole process to be extra smooth and painless, from signing of the contract all the way through the closing day. If there were more real estate professionals, like them, available on the market then buying/selling real estate would have been so much easier. I highly recommend JoAnna and Gail for their excellent work!

 

Brian and Jamie (Helped me buy a home)

My husband and I were extremely picky buying our first home. Gail was always available, honest, and most of all patient with us. We had a wonderful buying process with Gail that I went to real estate school. When we purchase out next home it would not be with anyone but Gail. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a honest and straightforward real estate agent.

 

Mike and Allison (Helped me buy a home)

We moved to Manalapan in June 2012 after finding a wonderful home with the help of JoAnna Siminerio and Gail Szeluga!! We loved working with them throughout the whole buying process! JoAnna knew the type of home I wanted, and she did a great job in finding it for me! We were first time home buyers and they were very diligent with answering all of our questions and concerns all the way through closing. I called JoAnna at all hours of the day AND NIGHT, and she was always available to help me deal with the bank and lawyers.

Home buying is a very stressful time and I don’t know how I would have survived without these women!

LOVE YOU GUYS!

 

John and Kim (Helped me sell and buy a home)

JoAnna and Gail took care of it all! Including staging, pricing, marketing, negotiating, certificate of occupancy right up to the closing of our home!

We heard that selling a home would be stressful, but working with these ladies made it seem easy! It didn’t stop there! Their patience in working with our family to find our next home was incredible!

They were always comforting and patient even when it seemed we would never find the right home.

 

Mike (Helped me sell a home)

I wanted to take a minute to say how very pleased i am with the level of service i have been getting from both Gail and JoAnna.

I moved out of state and left the whole process up to them .They have gone over and above what anyone could expect from any sales agents.

If not for these two angels I would not know what to do. They have made service appointments, CO appointments and repairs to the home to get it sold.

Thank you for having such a great team at Weichert of Manalapan.

 

Sal and Carole (Helped me buy a home)

Buying a home in New Jersey was so convenient and stress free thanks to JoAnna and Gail. They were professional and helpful with every detail. I could not have asked for more courteous and well informed agent!

 

Tory and Janet (Helped me sell a home)

I am trying to come up with words that can describe how grateful I am that you handled the sale of my home.

What you did for me was over and beyond what anyone would expect from a realtor, it was amazing. You emotionally got me through a very difficult time in my life, kept me calm, you always were focused and in control, and for all this I cannot thank you enough.

When I have told friends and family about how you have been taking care of the many obstacles, they all were amazed and said I have a real “angel” working for me. “Angel” is probably the best word to describe you.

 

Christina and George (Helped me buy a home)

Gail, Thank you for going above and beyond the call of duty. We love our house warming gift. You are the best!

 

Ed and Judy (Helped me sell a home)

We can’t say enough good things about our experience in working with Gail and JoAnna to sell our home.  We were forced to move as part of a government relocation program.  We were nervous about the complicated process and concerned about not being able to realize the full potential of our home’s value due to challenges in the economy and the time constraints dictated by the relocation company.  With their commitment, superior marketing and expert knowledge of the real estate market, JoAnna and Gail put our fears to rest and sold our home faster and for more money than we ever expected!

 

Rose (Helped me buy a home)

Gail, Thank you so much for all your help in finding and buying my new home. You were always available, always cheerful, patient with my children and always helpful without being pushy or overbearing. That made the process easier and more pleasant. I really enjoyed our time together…..I wish you much success and will certainly recommend you to my friends.

 

Josephine and John (Helped me sell a home)

My house had been on the market for some time before JoAnna sold it! JoAnna was very patient and understanding with the sale of my home.   She would suggest certain things in order to sell my home, but was sensitive and understanding if I didn’t want certain things done. She is also very responsible and knowledgeable about the area I lived in. She made the whole selling experience easier for me and my husband.   I would highly recommend JoAnna if you are selling or buying a home. Teresa and Doug (Helped me sell a home)

I am so thankful for JoAnna.

Honestly, there aren’t enough words to describe what a wonderful, professional, caring, and loyal agent JoAnna is.  She listed my home and from my first meeting with her, I knew I made the right decision.  She was always open and considerate.  Advertising my home, open houses, and brokers opens were always done as promised.  JoAnna went above and beyond with the sale of my home.   Thank you JoAnna!!!

 

Mark and Pat (Helped me sell a home)

Thanks to JoAnna and Gail for selling my old place so fast. Kinda threw us for a loop for a while because it was so quick!
