'I would like to commend you for your excellent service as well as the compassion you provided in the sale of our family home in Somerset. It was a very difficult decision for me to leave our home but I felt that I needed to move to the West Coast to be closer to my children and grandchildren. From 3000 miles away, you very capably handled all the routine problems with professionalism and expedience; your timely communications with me were immediate and complete. It was so very reassuring to know that regardless of the difficulty, you were in control and keeping to the schedule. Above all, you understood the emotion involved in the sale of our family home and you did everything possible to make that process easier. Thank you so very much.' B.W.M.
'When my father passed away in November, I was faced with the situation of needing to sell his home at Stoughton Lakes to settle his estate. Having lived near Philadelphia for the last 32 years, I was out of touch with where to turn to get help with the real estate market. I turned tot he yellow pages and I came across a name that I had seen many times on for sale signs when visiting Somerset. That name was Rita Halverson. After meeting with Rita, I was confident that with her knowledge, accreditations and experience in real estate, I was getting the best professional and personal attention that one could receive. The results were wonderful. The property moved quickly with a favorable selling price. I could not have done better and that is nothing but the truth!' JG
We really appreciate your devotion you gave us in this whole transition of buying & selling our homes. We felt so comfortable with you. You went above & beyond for us. Thank God for 4 wheel drive vehicles! S & ML.
Agent went above and beyond. J & MJC.
Anytime we talked with Rita, she always made you feel like you were her only customer. She went above and beyond our expectations. She always made sure she took the time to explain everything to us to make sure we understood. (Even on a Friday evening when everyone else who works was ready to leave at 5:00 pm, she stayed until 7:00 pm to make sure our transaction was clear to us). She never made you feel like a bother and had no problems with us calling her at home anytime. There were times I was surprised that with her busy schedule, she would stop by or call which again made you feel extremely special.
Focus, initiative, customer needs are met. Chosen from 3 top Realtors in area based on Marketing Plan commitment. D & SR.
Excellent, Professional, way beyond satisfactory. Rita Halverson is the best in the business. Good - bad - ugly - I was promptly contacted & kept 'in the loop'. I could not have expected any better results with anyone. M.S.
Great job keeping in touch, etc during this protracted process. P.D.J.
Rita also put up with our temper tantrums from stress of not selling house quickly - she was wonderful. Rita is an excellent salesperson - very professional. Even though we tested Rita's (and other individuals in the office) patience, everyone was always courteous and extremely professional. S & JC.
Rita Halverson is the Best Realtor I've ever used... Outstanding - Knowledge Level, Timeliness, Attention to Details, Overall Experience. D.J.
The greatest part of the transaction was the feedback. D.R.J.
Rita, you're personal attention and promptness in returning phone calls & communication were Premier! This is what I appreciated. D.J.
Thanks! I continue to be impressed with your marketing efforts, your sense of ownership to my property and enthusiasm for our objectives and quality. D & SR.
If I was to have Real Estate to sell, I would call Rita. (case closed J.W.)
Rita helped us so very much. We were pleased. K. & F.S.
It gave me a chance to teach them about relationships, about trust and about 'good people'. It's an important lesson in life and I'm grateful to you for being one of those special 'good people'. I hope that my sons will someday follow in that same mold. Thanks for being such a good example in our community and to my sons personally. The life you've led has more of an impact than you know, Rita. You may not realize it, but it's true. Thanks for making a difference. It's great to live in a place where handshakes and character still carry the day. J.S.P.
Rita was a delight to work with the selling at my Mother's house. I could not have been better satisfied - an excellent Realtor! Rita called many times with updates. P.B.
"Thank you for getting our home sold at a fair price in these very difficult market conditions.  My wife and I were getting close to giving up on trying to sell and were considering taking it off the market just when this client you found showed  up.  Timing could not have been better for you or for us.  Thanks for sticking with it!"      WG
