The home buying experience was made so much easier because we had Anna on our side! She is a consummate professional: efficient, transparent, and highly motivated! Anna provided my partner and I with all the information we needed, and in a timely manner, so that we could make decisions that were best for us. We never had to call Anna to find out what was going on. Not even once. Anna knows her business, and her business is working with her clients to ensure that the home buying (and selling) process is a smooth one. We are so happy with our new home and we are very grateful to Anna for all of her hard work on our behalf. If you need a realtor and don't know where to turn, call Anna and find the home of your dreams!

A huge THANK-YOU to Anna Tarantino!! Anna is a person with such a huge heart, incomparable work ethic and skill that goes beyond words. Anna has been a part of my family’s journey for almost 3 years. She was instrumental in helping us move from Peterborough to Amherstburg and now, she found and secured our dream home. It was a rocky road and at times, we were frustrated and wanted to give up, after many disappointments. Anna never faltered in her determination to get us the house that was “right” for us. Her confidence was contagious and because of her, we trudged on and guess what??? She was right!!! We found the home that we had always been looking for. Anna worked incredibly hard and negotiated the sale for us. And then….. She continued to be by our side and walked us through the process of getting ready to sell our home. It was a privilege and honor to watch Anna work her magic. The house buying and selling process is not for the faint of heart. But Anna knows this industry and excels at her job. We never felt alone or out of the loop during the buying or selling process. Anna made us feel like we were her only clients and always made time for us. She very patiently answered all of our questions and calmed our anxiety and fears. 
Anna Tarantino, from the bottom of our hearts, Thank-you for everything you have done, and continue to do for us.

To Anna Tarantino:

Thank you for your hard working. My girlfriend and I can find our dream house within only one week. 

You used your professional knowledge to help us and make our dream come true. You did a lot of research and explain every question to us. You are not only a good realtor agent but also a good friend. When we are in the house, you checked everything, you did a more careful job than myself. It really helped me to make a decision. 

When we sat in your office, we took a lot of time to make a plan, even after we have a plan you still tried to make a better one. I never saw any other agent could do that. You are not an agent, who just wants to make the deal. You are an agent who wants to make a great deal for your client. When I wanted to put more money on a house, you said: "no, it is not worth it". And finally, we both get a happy ending. I got a house with a really good price.

You are always a hard worker, and you will show on every offer presentation. Some of agent would not go to any offer presentation, they may just delivery the offer and leave, or even just email the offer to the seller. You are not, you will go to the presentation, and try to persuade the seller to accept my offer. This is an unexceptionable move to show the good faith to the seller.

I am sure your business will be better than before. And thank you for everything you did to help us.

 

祝:恭喜发财,生意蒸蒸日上!

(Congratulation and tomorrow will be better)

 

Sincerely yours, 

Steven

She will make sure that her clients are the best informed, and in the best position to find the house that they want. This is very important in today's highly competitive market. Thank you Anna. You rock!

Thank you Anna for selling my home. Your expertise and hard work each week was appreciated.

I would recommend Anna to anyone buying or selling a home. She gets the job done and her professionalism and passion is what sets her apart from others.

Anna's enthusiasm and honesty during this challenging and stressful time made the process easy and worry free. She was easily accessible and even responded to my calls when she was out of town. Anna's persistence and weekly open houses were appreciated and the key. You are a true go getter Anna and will definitely use your services again in the future!

Thankyou again,

We we're so fortunate to have Anna when we we're ready to sell our home. I found Anna to be patient and answered any questions we had. She used all aspects of her knowledge to give us creative ways to set up the house for viewing and improvements that needed to be made. Anna goes the extra mile without hesitation. She is enthusiastic  and energetic. Our house was sold well over asking and in only six days. This woman treats her clients like family and I will recommend her to anyone  I can. Thanks Anna.

Anna was a dedicated and passionate realtor when my son was looking for a home. She was referred by a friend who told us she would work hard for us, which she did. As a first-time home buyer Anna brought her experience and knowledge which guided him through the process. Anna understood how important it was to get a home in a very short period and within weeks she found him a new home. I truly appreciate her dedication, support and handwork. I would highly recommend her. Thank you again.

I don’t think I can say I’ve worked with a better agent in the Windsor, ON area. I’ve worked and connected with multiple realtors and Anna is by far the hardest working, and over-communicative realtor I’ve ever worked with. Selling/buying a home is a stressful and nerve wrecking time and Anna made that process for my family and I, a true breeze. Anna was with us every step of the process through helping stage our home, recommendations on how to maximize sale price, and so many other things. If you want someone to get the job done then talk to Anna. She knows how to close a deal. Thank you for your hard work, Anna.

As the school year ends, so begins transitions in life. Some of us are off to high school, some new work opportunities, & some onto retirement. During these transitions in life’s journey, it is IMPORTANT to know that u can count on the RIGHT AGENT to be in your corner. When we were planning to put our house on the market, ANNA TARANTINO was the ONLY agent that came to mind!! She works diligently, tirelessness & @ the same time will be honest & open with you, to get the BEST DEAL for your home. She was amazingly accessible ALL HOURS of the day and provided constructive feedback & guidance for home enhancements where it seemed fit. We are SOOOO HAPPY that we went with ANNA TARANTINO!! This was our THIRD home sale with her, & we could not think of anyone else that would have worked as HARD & as persistently as she. She would represent your home with integrity & professionalism, as no other agent could. She listens to her clients & stands up for your values & goals. We hope you choose ANNA, to represent you during home buying/ selling experience, & we are sure that you all will be as SUCCESSFUL as we have been by choosing the RIGHT AGENT FOR THE JOB!!!

On behalf of all of us at McDonald’s®, thank you for helping to make the 25th McHappy Day® such an outstanding success! Your participation and support are very much appreciated.

I am delighted to recommend Anna Tarantino. Anna is an amazing real estate agent. She is honest, forthright and professional in both the buying an selling of properties. Her attention to detail and her expertise in the real estate market was incredibly helpful. I am impressed with her goal focused action. She quickly responded to every email, text and phone call, offered great advise and got solid offers - often beyond the listing price and within a short period of time. Anna works very hard on behalf of her clients - and best of all, gets great results. I am pleased to refer her to my family and friends.

In July 2017 I hired Anna Tarantino to list my Remington Park home for sale. Property was evaluated by Anna with a suggested price to sell. With immediate open house and showings I was kept up to date about all possible buyers concerns and ideas on how to enhance the property for the best sale price. I was kept informed at all times of any comments from other agents and prospective buyers and able to sell as fast as possible at the best price. I would hire Anna again and advise others to use her services.

Dear Anna

My wife Sophia and I wish to express our thanks to you in executing the sale of our home in Russell Woods. Your professional ethics and standards was tempered with your genuine and caring attitude every step of the way, from start to finish.


You made what could have been a stressful process a very pressure free process that we just seemed to glide through. Our journey was both inspiring and comforting as we went from "FOR SALE" to "SOLD", because of your professional ethic and comforting personality. From start to finish, you were the absolute best!!


BEST REGARDS AND THANKS

Letter of Reference for Anna Tarantino
 
I was extremely pleased with Anna's service and expertise for a recent Windsor property sale. From the initial meeting, everything was made clear and great advice was given in relation to all aspects of the sale such as pricing, when to put it on the market, staging and more. Anna was amazingly efficient and proactive in helping things run smoothly behind the scenes for us as well. I would recommend Anna without hesitation. 
 
Thank You

Anna is selling and buying properties for us. She is definitely one of the hardest working realtors in town. She is a true fighter for buyers, and she sold our condos in six days with high price. She also helped us to get the property which my husband dreamed for. There is no way for us to get it without her help! We are lucky to meet and work with her!

We met Anna at an open house one weekend. Although that particular home wasn’t the home for us, she took the time to get to know us and found out what we were after. We stayed in touch and she eventually lead us to our dream home. She emailed the listing to us that exactly met our tight criteria. The problem was our home was not even listed and we have young children and careers to juggle. She promptly helped us get our house market ready with her expert strategies & strong connections within the community. Through her strong efforts & advice, our home sold quickly at a competitive price and she negotiated a great price on our new home. She was exceptionally helpful throughout the whole process (lawyer, house inspection, moving company, etc.) allowing our house buying experience to be extremely positive. We were so grateful to work with such a hard working, professional, knowledgeable and determined agent who certainly went the extra mile for us.

After my mother finally sold her house in Port Rowan we started the process of finding the perfect home for her in Windsor, closer to her family as she is 85 & lived 3 hours away for the last 20 years.  I contacted Anna Tarantino & she went to work immediately to find the perfect home for her.  Anna was determined that the perfect home was going to come available & she was right!  My mother didn’t see the place until after she moved to Windsor but fell in love with it right away!  The closing date was moved up, we moved her in Thanksgiving weekend and we are all happy to have our Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother here closer to her 2 daughters, 5 grand-children & 11 great-grandchildren.  Since then Anna worked very hard to find my youngest son a house in his price range – the house is just perfect for him & his 2 children!  I highly recommend Anna as the hardest working real estate agent I know of to all of my friends & colleagues!

Thanks & Kind Regards,

After having my house for sale it finally sold with a 60 day closing date! I was three hours away so Anna showed many properties to my daughter & son in law. Anna was bound & determined to find me a home in Windsor close to my daughter since I am in my mid-80’s. Anna came through with the most fabulous home in a very nice neighbourhood two minutes away from my daughter! I did not see it until after the offer was accepted & moved to Windsor – when I did I was thrilled – a very nicely updated home exactly what I wanted including top of the line appliances! Anna worked very hard for me & my grandson whom she also found a home in the exact price range he was looking for – also updated! I recommend Anna Tarantino to get the results!

Anna Tarantino was the most amazing, hard working Real Estate Agent, we have ever had the pleasure of working with. To say she went above and beyond, is a total understatement. We were selling our home in the Peterborough area and relocating to the Windsor area. Anna worked with us and guided us through every step of buying and selling. 

Anna always made herself available to us, answering every question and concern we had. She not only helped us with our purchase in Amherstburg, but she was also invaluable with her advice, knowledge and assistance in selling our home. 

Anna previewed homes for us, when we were unable to see them, she negotiated and incredible deal on our new home, took care of the home inspection, final walk through and anything else she could do for us. 

Anna has phenomenal integrity and her professionalism is beyond words. 

Thank you Anna Tarantino for making our transition and move so much easier. Your dedication to us was endless. You never made us feel like we were anything but your number 1 priority. 

Integrity, professionalism, dedication and hard work. That is Anna Tarantino!!

Sold by Anna is so much more then just a phrase! It's a reality!!!

Anna has helped me purchase my condo and was great to work with throughout the whole process. She was easy to work with, understood what I was looking for and made sure any of my concerns were taken care of.

She was always available and would return my calls and answer any concerns I had immediately.

She would regularly call me to make sure everything was in place to complete the transaction, she also would follow-up after I moved in to make sure I didn’t have any issues.

 

Thank You Anna

Anna Tarantino was our agent. She helped us successfully purchase our dream house in Lakeshore. Immediately after the purchase contract was signed, she helped us find a general contractor to fix our old house to put on the market within 2 weeks. It was sold a week later. Yep, we bought a new house, renovated and sold our old house, IN ONE MONTH. Without Anna, we would never ever be able to accomplish that.

What makes Anna really went above and beyond is how she cares about her clients. She was very patient throughout the process, took the time to explain the buying and selling procedures. She gave us her honest and professional opinions while negotiating with the seller and buyer to give us better deals. She has so many clients at hands but I was amazed by how she was still able to respond to my emails, texts and phone calls in a very timely manner.

I was very impressed with Anna’s expertise and timely response. I would highly recommend Anna Tarantino as an agent to everyone!!

Anna Tarantino is a great realtor who is very efficient and knowlegeable. She is very professional and always stayed on top of updates and was always ready to offer professional advice.

Our purchase was difficult however Anna saw it through right to the end, going above and beyond what she was expected to do.
Her commitment to her clients is like none other.

If you want a realtor to work for you and someone who cares, Anna is that person.
I would definitely recommend Anna as I know she can produce results.Thanks Anna for making the purchase of our first home together a success.

As a first-time home buyer, Anna made my experience easy and pleasant. Anna was very thorough and answered any questions I had and she went above and beyond my expectations to ensure that I got what I wanted and needed. I am very happy with my new home and I would recommend Anna Tarantino to anyone.

To The Valente Team:

I would like give a word of thanks to Valente Real Estate Team for the very professional service I received in selling my house.

I especially appreciate Anna Tarantino for her most excellent attentive service in this manner and for a job very well done.

Anna proved herself to be a highly skilled & knowledgeable real estate agent of the highest calibre. She very accurately priced my house, predicated the outcome, and helped me in every single step of the way, right up to the closing day.

In a rather difficult situation, Anna kept her cool, acted completely professional and the end result came out exactly as she predicted. She is definitely not afraid to take the extra step on your behalf. Very assertive without being overly aggressive.

I can highly recommend Anna as a person who will act in your best interest with the utmost of integrity, care & attentiveness that people expect during a major financial transaction.

You will NOT go wrong with Anna on your side, be it selling or buying.

    Anna Tarantino and I have known each other since she helped my purchase my home in Windsor in 2000. She continued to stay in touch and helped us by referring contractors to help fix the home. I was impressed with her service and knowledge of the area. When we were looking to sell the home this year (2015) we checked out other agents but Anna was still a leading seller in the area. So, I asked her to sell the home. She is very knowledgeable and helped me get the home ready for sale. She helped us get connected with contractors and handymen to get the work done. Once the house was listed, she was proactive in selling the home. The video and advertising were excellent and helped the house sell in less than two weeks. She stayed engaged and was proactive in working to complete the deal. I have been happy with her service and if I was to buy another home in the area I will work with her again to purchase the home.

We met Anna at an open house one weekend.  Although that particular home wasn’t the home for us, she took the time to get to know us and found out what we were after.  We stayed in touch and she eventually lead us to our dream home.  She emailed the listing to us that exactly met our tight criteria. The problem was our home was not even listed and we have young children and careers to juggle.  She promptly helped us get our house market ready with her expert strategies & strong connections within the community.  Through her strong efforts & advice, our home sold quickly at a competitive price and she negotiated a great price on our new home.  She was exceptionally helpful throughout the whole process (lawyer, house inspection, moving company, etc.) allowing our house buying experience to be extremely positive. We were so grateful to work with such a hard working, professional, knowledgeable and determined agent who certainly went the extra mile for us. Andrew & Krista

RE:  TARANTINO, ANNA
 
My name is Ross Halpern, Ph.D.  I am a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Michigan in the Department of Anesthesiology and I have a private psychology practice near Anna Arbor, Michigan.  I am writing this letter to thank and recommend Anna Tarantino as a real estate agent.
While we were looking for a house in Windsor after I had moved from the United States, we were very new to the area and felt very unprepared to buy a house in a new environment.  We interviewed several real estate agents.  Some of them were moderately helpful, but Anna Tarantino stood out above and beyond the rest.  She returned calls quickly.  She was very intelligent.  She made great recommendations.  When we finally found a house we loved the seller did not want to sell and their real estate agent was willing to walk away, but Anna Tarantino carefully coached the other real estate agent how to communicate with her sellers and we were able to negotiate a win-win deal for both us and the seller.  This would not have happened if it was not for Anna Tarantino's persistence and intelligence in handling the situation.
Anna also made great recommendations as far as working with an attorney and working with an inspector.  Even after we bought the house, Anna Tarantino has been helpful in making sure we felt comfortable in settling into our new neighborhood.  I recommend her without hesitation.
Thank you,
Ross Halpern, Ph.D., L.P.

Subject: Very happy to have had you as an agent

Hi Anna,

Thank you for helping us out with our house search. I appreciate your professionalism and all your hard work. You went beyond expectations to find us the right house.

Not many agents would run around town to meet with us at a moment's notice or send messages well past your work hours. I would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat.

I am very happy to have had you as an agent. You are the best!

 

Best regards,
Dalibor Puzigaca

Over the course of one year Anna found my sister and her partner their home, sold my parent’s condo and helped me buy a cottage on Lake St. Clair.  Anna was very professional with her advice and worked very hard to make sure everything happened in a timely manner.

For my parents, their condo was sold in 5 days and the price they got exceeded expectations.  Anna was also sensitive to the situation that my parent’s health had declined and leaving their home was difficult.

I have no hesitation in saying that Anna Tarantino did a great job for me and my family and I would unreservedly recommend Anna.

Recently my sister and I had to sell our mother's condo and Anna did the job for us.  Anna took care of every little detail for us, right down to finding us a person to fix a few minor issues within the condo, before we sold it.  She was in contact with us constantly, keeping us updated on what offers were coming in and we truly felt she had our best interests at heart.

Thanks, Anna, for doing a wonderful job of selling our Mom's condo for us!

The service and personal attention we received from Anna Tarantino was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! She is truly high calibre and on top of her field of expertise. Her knowledge of the local market and her key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our dream home. After patiently going through listings, she made sure we got the best offer for our previous home and more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one!
Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Anna Tarantino to help you in this life changing move.
We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.
Sincerely,

Tony, Rose and Alyssandra.

As first time home buyers, we were very impressed with Anna's ability to quickly help us refine and narrow down our search into finding a home that fit our style, and fit into a price range that we were comfortable with.  With her experience and her great skill she was able to get us into exactly what we wanted.  Working with Anna made the entire home purchasing experience painless for us; turning it from something we were nervous about into an exciting time!

Hi Anna

 

Christine and I wanted to forward this on to you. This is our testimony based on the wonderful although hectic and at times stressful experience. But it was all worth it and if someone asked me if we would change anything if we could do it all again we would say NO! :)
It was awesome having you as our agent.
All the best
Chris & Christine.......

 

 

So our long-term plan was to have our daughter finish her eighth grade in two years and then we would drift into buying a new home. However, the summer of 2014 is not one we will ever forget. August was a month when we worked harder than we’ve done and achieved a dream. This would not have been possible without the help of Anna Tarantino.

 

During my work break I texted my Mom.  An interest of mine is checking out MLS listings especially in the last year since with our plans to move. “Look at this one Mom” and I directed her to the website of a gem of a house. Mom texted back “It’s beautiful, and there is an open house…you should go to it.” As I was at work, I texted my husband and informed him of the open house, at which point he went with our daughter.

 

Chris and Ally met Anna at the open house and she provided excellent insight and background to the property. When Anna found out that I couldn’t make that open house, she immediately arranged a time a few days later when I could view the home as well. So I met Anna and she was very knowledgeable about the working of the house.  Anna said to us at the end of the viewing “I think you are the right people for this house”. We agreed with that so then began our journey.

 

We viewed our dream home on Tuesday.  Wednesday Anna came to our house and provided us with a list of things we needed to do to ready our current property for sale. We knew time was of the essence as there were still interested parties viewing our dream home!  So we put our trust in her advice and got it done.  Anna also has a valuable network of contractors that aided us greatly in our preparation. Throughout this time Anna was vigilant in maintaining communication to encourage us and provide advice as needed. We placed an offer on our dream home on Thursday, which happened to be our 21st wedding anniversary, and it was accepted on Friday! Meanwhile our existing property was ready for sale by Monday, listed on Tuesday on MLS and then as things were so amazing, the first viewer to our home put an offer in which we accepted by the end of that week.

 

It was a whirlwind! It was amazing! We were reeling but in a delighted way.

Throughout this process, Anna represented both us the buyers and the sellers of our dream home with honest disclosure and professionalism. We couldn’t be more pleased with how our journey has unfolded with Anna and highly recommend her as a top realtor in Windsor and surrounding area.

 

Thank you Anna so much for your passion your guidance throughout this process.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Christopher and Christine Weisener

We are very glad we chose Anna to sell our home and find a new one for us.  She never stopped working until the deals were closed --- very professional -- and didn't miss a thing!

Anna was able to get our price and find a buyer within a week.  Thank you Anna!

To Whom it May Concern,

I am writing to give Anna Tarantino my highest recommendation. Anna possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent Real Estate Agent: she knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with her clients. Anna is both very professional and personable. She clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In my particular case as a buyer of a home, there were some rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Anna was a great help.

This is the second time when Anna is assisting me in a property transaction. First time Anna helped me selling a property and she went over and above to sell my house.

It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Anna or being anything but happy in choosing to work with her.

 

Sincerely,

 

Radu Ghetea

We’re from out of town, and our mother’s house in Windsor had stood vacant for more than a year when we decided to sell. We had limited time to arrange for the work that needed to be done, from basement waterproofing to yard work to clearing out the house before putting it on the market. We could not have done it without Anna’s help. She was able to suggest top-notch, reasonably priced local contractors at every turn, and she gave us spot-on advice from beginning to end. Anna has a deep knowledge of the Windsor and SW Ontario markets, years of real estate experience, and boundless energy -- we were in good hands. The house sold for the price we’d hoped for, in under a month. We could not have been better served!

We were looking for a realtor to sell our house for us and invited Anna Tarantino and 2 other realtors  to give us an evaluation of our property. We chose Anna because we could see that she was a great realtor and thinks outside the box when it comes to evaluating and selling a house.

 

 
Anna is very confident and hard working. We placed our trust in her and when she made recommendations about how to stage our house and make minor changes , we followed her advice and it really paid off!
 
 
To say Anna knows what she is doing is an understatement! She had a buyer for our house 4 days after she listed it. We were also able to get a price that was higher than any other realtor we interviewed said we could get for our house!
 
 
I would recommend Anna Tarantino the realtor to anyone interested in selling their house. You will not be disappointed!

Hi Anna!

Please read the attached,  It's more than a testimonial, I had to.  Our story is so unbelievable.  My friends and family can't believe the speed in which we sold our house and bought another one.  I wanted to put everything down, the whole journey, so that you can see how much it means to me.

Thank you Anna for being "that" person. That person who cares enough in what we want that you will fight tooth and nail for it.  Dan and I wouldn't have put that much effort into getting our house ready if it wasn't for you.  You are "that" person who made our dreams reachable and, in short order, a reality.

Thanks again Anna, for everything that you do and who you are......

 

"I am finally able to get some time to write you a big THANK YOU!

The journey of buying/selling a house was a new one for both Dan and I.  The house that we were in was our first, and we had it built.  It was our "dream" home until the kids started getting bigger and the walls seemed to be getting smaller.

Our journey begins at Christmas.  I want to start from the beginning of our story because it will help you to see just how important a role you played in it.

I started looking for a new place to live during our Chrstimas break.  I saw a house, on Savanna, just down the road that would be perfect!  We wouldn't leave the proximity of our families, the girls would go to the same school and we would still be able to enjoy the neighbourhood amenities and walking trails.  I pushed off the thoughts of moving as if they were a dream in the distance, unattainable at this point.

Four weeks later, we were at my sister's home discussing how much I wanted to move.  Again I went on mls.ca to look for homes and again I saw the house on Savanna.  Naturally I started to dream.... I didn't know the first thing about moving, didn't know what was involved, only heard that it was a lot of work.  My sister and brother-in-law helped me convince Dan that we should jump in and start the process of moving.  My goal was to get our house ready in 6 weeks so that we could have showings all week long while we were away on vacation in March.  Everyone thought I was nuts and that I should slow down and take it one step at a time!

Both Dan and I now wanted the house on Savanna, though I was fully convinced that it was going to remain a dream and that we would have to find something else.  I was convinced that, with such a beautiful home that had been on the market for at least one month, it was going to be gone before we had a chance to put our house on the market.  That's where you came in.

How we met:

I am a dreamer, and usually I can make my dreams come true.  I live by the rules of the Secret and positive thinking.  I work hard for everything that I want/have.  So, the Wednesday we got back from my sister's house, I took the girls for a drive after school to dream about this house on Savanna and to come up with a way of getting the house.  That's when I saw you walking by!  I am SO glad that you waved me down, gave me your card, and offered to come to our house to talk about the moving process.

As far as I'm concerned, you were the exact catalyst that I needed to make my dreams come true.  It may seem that we met by chance but I believe this wasn't a coincidence.  It's like all the stars aligned and it was meant to be!

I rushed home, hurried to do some cleaning downstairs before you came over, and told Dan what was going on.  In our minds this was happening very fast but if we were going to start this process, why not just start.

In that first meeting that Wednesday, you helped us understand the process of buying/selling and gave us our first step; contact the bank and get a pre-approval.  After that, the whirlwind began.

Saturday we gotour pre-approval, Sunday we went for a walk through the Savanna home, Sunday night we put in an offer on the Savanna home, Monday it was accepted, Tuesday we cleaned and staged our house, Thursday it was on the market, Friday we were signing an offer on our house and removing our conditions.  The next week was excruciating, waiting for our buyers to remove their conditions, which they did the following Thursday.

I believe that this was one of the fastest home buying/selling in the history of real estate.  And if it isn't, I still like to think that we set some kind of record.

We now have a new dream home and I didn't have to compromise on the cost of our first dream home.  We are completely satisfied with both the sale and purchase prices, we were never persuaded or pressured, we got exactly what we wanted and expected.

So, now for the testimonial:

Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that everything that we accomplished together was even possible.  You were not only helpful in the journey of selling our home, you were INSTRUMENTAL.

You were exactly what we needed, someone who gave us the cards and helped us deal them.  You were never pushy, but you lit a fire in us that got results.

You are results driven, I can see that, and you hold everyone accountable.  We are in this together and you made it chear that this is a serious business and that you were going to work extremely hard for us.  You and I were always on the same page, same thought, same wants, and same results.

I felt that we were your only clients, knowing full well that you also had to take care of the sellers on Savanna.  You gave us your undivided attention, you always called us back, you answered every question we had, and your dedication to us was unmistakable.

You kept everything very professional, but also lent an emotional side because you understand what a big step buying/seling a house is in a family's life.

I truly do not know how to put into words what you and what you have done mean to me.  I seriously did not think we could every manage to make this dream come true, but somehow you made it a reality.

Thank you Anna!

We had attempted to sell our house ourselves without any success.  We then listed our house with another agent and again, no results.  In fact, we had no offers over a nine month period.

Once we contacted Anna everything changed.  Anna took charge and provided many suggestions and ideas on how to better stage our house for sale.  She worked numerous open house sessions and followed through on every lead.  The house sold in two months and we obtained our asking price.

After selling our house, we had to move quickly to find a new place.  Anna listened to our needs and understood exactly what we were looking for.  Within 24 hours she had several places for us to look at that matched the criteria we had given her.  We chose one of those and then Anna went to work.  Anna's negotiating skills are second to none.  She was able to get us the price we were willing to pay, as well as securing some extras along the way.

Anna is a true professional.  We will refer her to any friends and family.  Whether buying or selling we strongly recommend Anna Tarantino.

When I was looking for a Real Estate agent to sell my property, I got a very strong referral about Anna.

During the period working with Anna I have been impressed with her abilities.  She worked tirelessly.  Her willingness to do her best at all times, to work with a team in order to meet the requirements of each client, contributes to her overall popularity.  If you have a chance to get to know her you will become almost as enthusiastic as her with her high energy, style and quality of work.  I would highly recommend Anna to other customers.

This is not my first real estate transaction with Anna.  It is because of her professionalism, attention to detail and attentive service that she remains my only choice when it comes to buying or selling a home.

I have never hesitated to refer Anna to friends and family for their Real Estate needs.

We would like to thank and extend our appreciation to Anna Tarantino for all of her hard work and dedication that she demonstrated while representing us, not only in the sale of our two houses (at the same time), but also in the purchase of our dream house. Without a doubt, Anna went above and beyond in our journey together.

In January of 2013 my husband and I got engaged and started our search for our dream home together.  With this came challenges; we had to sell two houses that needed renovations - my husband's Windsor Raised Ranch had an unfinished basement which included a bedroom and bathroom, and my Backsplit in the County had an unfinished bathroom in the basement.  Anna inspected what needed to be done and motivated us to get started with our renovations on both homes immediately.  Anna stayed in touch with us daily regarding the renovations and didn't shy away from advertising and showing our homes during that period.  Anna would call agents to bring clients back through our homes to see the updates, which ultimately resulted in the sale of my country home.  Anna smoothly managed numerous daily showings between both houses, along with numerous appointments for multiple offers that came in for both houses as well.  Still to this day -- I don't know how she kept it all straight and on target.

Anna's knowledge in Real Estate is outstanding.  Her memory of closed deals and locations still available on the market all over Windsor/Essex County is truly her gift.  Her research with comparables and her unbelievable negotiating skills closed both our homes for exactly the amounts in which she predicted and in which we needed to purchase our new home.  Anna sets her goals high as an Agent and doesn't stop until the are met.  Both my husband and I witnessed that on many occasions.

We appreciate Anna so much for all of her successful efforts on our part and we would not hesitate for one second to recommend the professional services of Anna Tarntino to anyone.

It was such a pleasure to partner with Anna Tarantino, for the sale of our family home of 37 years!

 

From our initial meeting, Anna presented herself as a competent, knowledgeable professional. She partnered with us to determine a 'reasonable' selling price - that took into account the age and condition of our home and the market pressures that are present in our area. Anna was sensitive to our needs and tactfully and skillfully guided us through this process. She encouraged us to work with other 'professionals' to present our home in the most visually appealing manner.

And, it worked! We had more showings in the first few weeks of our listing with Anna, then we had had in the previous year with another agent. Appropriate advance notice of a showing was given and Anna's follow up and follow through was amazing. She readily shared the potential client/buyer's reaction to our property. Anna's highlighted the strengths, as viewed by the visitors...and tactfully, shared needs/wants. When other agents accessed our home, she not only followed up with the agent - but shared this information, as well.

Finally, when we had an offer, Anna professionally and skillfully worked with us and the other agent to get us the best deal possible. She 'held our hands' through the entire selling and closing process, even checking with us to make sure that we was satisfied with her work and efforts on our behalf.

Anna Tarantino gets the job done!!!

To Anna, Valente Real Estate - December 1, 2013

 

This is just a short note to thank you for your professional and efficient service in the successful sale of my property in Windsor. Thanks to your perseverance, skills and knowledge of the market you have managed to obtain a very satisfactory outcome in an unfavorable real estate market situation. To sell the house, at a fair price was amazing and is testament to your knowledge and expertise as real estate agent. I found your initial appraisal of the property to be right on the mark and your method of sale to be realistic and effective. Your work ethic and professional standards were high and your regular updates and communication about the process was commendable. Your support and empathy to me throughout the whole process was also very much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anna Tarantino to any prospective clients.

“I am so happy I chose Anna to sell my house. She never stopped working until the deal was done. She was always keeping me updated on the progress which was extremely gratifying. I never felt neglected or pushed aside. She was very accommodating to all of my needs, and can’t wait to see what she finds for me next! I was pleased with the advice Anna gave me prior to listing the property and I feel sure that it contributed significantly in the presentation of the property. Anna’s skills, as well as her practice of maintaining a record of people interested in the properties in the area, surely contributed strongly to the sale of my house."
