reviews

Whether you are a home buyer, a home seller, or both, it’s vital to partner with a real estate agent who knows the northern New Jersey market and will guide you through every step of the process. We are grateful to our clients for their reviews and referrals!

I work in the real estate industry and I can wholeheartedly state that Saritte and her team are some of the most professional, market savvy and knowledgeable real estates experts I have worked with. From pricing to listing to closing and moving, Saritte makes the process of buying and selling a home a genuinely easy process.

Saritte and Lisa are an incredible team.  We worked with them 5 years ago to purchase our first house and then again this past year to sell that house and buy a new house. On all sides of the transaction they were incredible - smart, tough, responsive, low-pressure, understanding and dependable. Through their strategic work, we received 8 offers on our house in the first weekend on the market and were able to sell it well over our asking price. On the purchase of our house, they worked closely with us to find the right house - and when we did, they helped us position ourselves strongly against multiple other offers to have our offer accepted.   We have and will continue to recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in our area. In a fast moving, competitive real estate market you want to know you are represented by the BEST agent - Saritte and Lisa are the BEST.

You should work at M&A at Goldman Sachs! You are an amazing negotiator.

In our home, we tell it like it is. In an over-saturated world of realtors with varying degrees of personal and professional integrity, it is inspiring to work with a team of individuals, headed by Saritte and Lisa, who authentically and tirelessly guide you through one of the most important and  stressful purchases of your life.

 

Their seamless teamwork is impressive and the ability to make you, the client, feel as if you are their ONLY client is special. But, perhaps, most notable, is their skill in serving the clients' best interests while managing the complexities of the "real estate game" with character and class.

 

Saritte and Lisa were recommended to us by several of our friends in the community, and we, honestly, couldn't be more grateful to them.

Saritte has worked with us three times over the past 12 years. First, we were the newcomers from the city, then the family outgrown its first house. The experience of working with her each time has been terrific. She is professional, trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable about the market. She puts your interest first, instead of looking for an easy and quick transaction. The people on her team are hardworking, responsive and detail oriented. They have the systems to work together seamlessly from start to finish. Equally important is her wide network in the area. For any issue related to buying and selling, she has the right leads for you. We highly recommend Saritte and her team!

We have worked with Saritte and her team three times now and all three have been exact in meeting/exceeding my expectations, delivering on trust, and keeping the process professional and precise. Furthermore, she was instrumental in finding resources for us in getting work done, problems resolved, and bringing good people to our side.  Good people you can trust, good people who are professional, and good people who are trying to help you.

Saritte Harel is the consummate professional, and in our experience heads and shoulders above others in her field. She is smart, strategic and responsive, both in the speed in which she gets back to you and with the content of her response. Her staff is equally attentive. She and her team are also personable and a pleasure to work with.

Saritte and Lauren were an incredible team in helping us to find the perfect home. They stuck with us as we really narrowed down the house that we were looking for. We cannot say enough great things about this team, as they are responsive, professional and truly seeking the best for their clients.

Saritte was spot-on with her pricing, her knowledge of what the market could handle and gave us realistic and practical advice during the negotiations and throughout the sale process. Her team was equally competent and easy to work with.

We were so fortunate to work with Lisa Salerno to sell our home--we received multiple offers in just a few days on the market. Lisa helped us every step of they. She provided strong, market-backed analytics to help us determine the best time to sell and the price that was going to generate the right buyers. She consulted on how to improve our home to make it compelling to potential buyers. Lisa and her team created great materials and generated the right buzz to have a huge turnout for our open houses. Once we had buyers, Lisa guided us and held our hand until the very end. She is incredibly professional, patient and picked up the phone at all hours--every time with a calm, rationale solution. We had a worry-free experience, pretty rare for selling your home! Lisa is a true professional and a pleasure to work with!

Saritte was outstanding! She helped us sell our home in Millburn and purchase in Chatham. Her area of the local communities helped us narrow our search and she took the time to understand our interests. Ultimately, she helped us find the perfect location and house! I would absolutely work with Saritte again if we were to move.

Lisa was fantastic - she quickly understood what we were looking for and knows the area better than anyone! She was friendly, patient and incredibly responsive and organized. She made our first time buying a home so much smoother than we anticipated.

We highly recommend Saritte Harel. She is a very knowledgeable, attentive professional who helped guide us through both the purchase of our new home and sale of our previous one. During these processes, issues arose on both fronts but with Saritte’s advice, we successfully navigated toward satisfactory resolutions. In particular, on the sale of our house, the marketing materials both in print and on-line generated a large amount of interest and number of viewings. At the end of the day, our house sold well above our initial asking price after only a few weeks on the market. Saritte is a great resource for anyone looking to either buy and/or sell a home.

Saritte Harel and her team were efficient and professional. They were extremely responsive to all of our questions and had tremdous local knowledge of the Short Hills Market. I would highly recommend them in either a purchase or sale situation.
Scott Berger

Highly knowledgeable team with extensive experience and high quality content/metrics on local markets. Had the opportunity to work with Saritte directly to simultaneously buy and sell homes in 2011 and could not have been happier with her advice, professionalism, and ability to navigate challenges to see the transactions through to completion

We came to Carol Greenberg blindly as we were interested in one of the Saritte Harel Team listings. She listened carefully to what we were interested and showed us properties that were realistic for our demands and budget. When we found the dream home Carol worked with us closely until it became realty.
Larry Adler
Buyer

From the first time we met Saritte to when we finally closed on our house - 18 months later! - Saritte was with us every step of the way. Her commitment to ensure that we found the right house for us was unwavering and her patience, kindness and generosity were truly impressive. We would not hesitate to recommend her and, whenever we sell and/or buy again, she would be the first person we would call.

As stressful as the home-buying process is supposed to be, I think I speak for both of us when I say your service, expertise and attention to detail made the process enjoyable. We are eager to refer some of our friends to you when they start retreating to the suburbs and we've convinced them to move to Millburn! We look forward to seeing you around town!
Emil & Alina Hedaya

We worked with Saritte to purchase our first home. She worked with us to find the right home for our needs without putting any pressure on us. She walked us through all of the steps in buying the home and explained everything thoroughly to us throughout the process. She recommended great resources to assist us through the inspection and closing processes. She was great to work with and highly recommended.

For everyone moving out to the Montclair/Maplewood/Summit area, you need to use this woman. She is super patient and is a total expert on the towns.

We used Saritte to buy our home in Millburn and I thought she was amazing. She was patient and very supportive throughout the entire lengthy process. I highly recommend Saritte to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

I can't think of anything more you could have done to give us a better experience. Even with all the bumps we encountered the one constant was being able to depend on you and your team. Everything. You were patient, and gracious with time. You listened, you educated us when needed, provided guidance, strength and expertise. Anytime we needed you, you were there.

I thought you were great at giving realistic pricing recommendations (you suggested a price higher than we initially wanted but we had faith in your recommendation and it paid off!). I thought you did a great job with timing our sale to hit the open market. It couldn't have been better planned and contributed to multiple offers.

My wife and I worked with Lauren, an associate of Saritte's, and the service we received was fantastic. Lauren showed us a number of homes, was constantly available for questions, and listened to our needs. During the closing process, the support we received from Saritte's team was great and they  made us feel like we had someone looking out for our best interests. We would highly recommend Saritte Harel and her team (especially Lauren with whom we worked with directly).

Saritte and her team did a great job in selling our house. Saritte is an excellent real estate broker who listens and works with you. The team was very responsive which was important, as buying/selling a house can be a daunting experience. What I like about Saritte is that she is a caring individual and will give you her honest opinion. I felt I could trust her because she does have your interest at heart. Like all RE transactions, we had our share of challenges and she was there for us the whole time. We were very glad we chose Saritte as our agent.

Saritte was 100% in control of the deal from day one to the finish line. She is experienced and diligent and set the bar exactly where it should be. The transaction went as smooth as it can under the circumstances (first-time buyer and overseas seller...). As we wrote to Saritte in our personal note to her, we are extremely lucky to have her as our real-estate agent. We know our home is in the best of hands and that no matter how challenging the transaction gets, Saritte and her team will execute at the end of the day.

Saritte and Lisa were equal part realtors and therapists. During the selling and buying process, we felt that we were part of their team and could have candid conversations. At times, we thought we were their only clients (obviously, not the case) and got immediate attention on aspects of the process. Thanks a ton!

Saritte and Lisa guided us through this whole process with such professionalism and kindness. They prepared us well for each step while selling our former home and buying our new home. They were always available to answer our questions. We were so lucky to work with them, and their expertise, availability, and support were invaluable!

Carol Greenberg and Saritte Harel's team did a fine job of marketing our home to sell. We were given good advice on preparing to sell, and the process was explained well. The team was responsive almost to a fault. Carol knows the Maplewood South Orange area incredibly well, which was a great  help for pricing and strategy. Carol also helped us find our new home, and we had an incredibly smooth transition due to her experience and knowing just how to proceed. I would feel very comfortable recommending them.

Saritte puts her clients first. Saritte's knowledge of evolving local trends, value insights and negotiating skills are all assets to her clients, but nothing is more valuable than her view that her client, not the deal, comes first, and this principle forms the foundation of the advice that she provides.
Jack Merimee
Buyer & Seller

Lauren was absolutely incredible to work with. She was always upfront, honest, extremely thorough and consistently took the initiative to expedite the process every step of the way. She seamlessly managed our 9pm and weekend texts, negotiations with our buyers and always remained positive even when we were not! She is kind, personable and we truly enjoyed working with her! Despite not having a "high end" property we always felt like high end clients.

Thank you very much!

We recently worked with Saritte on both the sale and purchase of our home. Saritte was extremely knowledgeable about the market and priced our house perfectly which led to multiple offers in just 4 days! Additionally, Saritte to the time to really understand our goals for our new house and maticulously searched for exactly what it was we were looking for. Saritte and her team were professional, detail oriented and a pleasure to work with.

I highly recommend the Saritte Harel Team!

It was a real pleasure working with Lisa Salerno and the whole team. Lisa was a consummate professional and went above and beyond to ensure that the process of selling our home and buying a new home went smoothly and easily. She patiently worked with us every step of the way, from readying our home for sale through the closing. Lisa was excellent in listening to our needs for a new home and worked tirelessly to find us the perfect new home for our family.

We worked with Lisa Salerno and she was extremely knowledgeable, patient, responsive and pleasant. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience as first time buyers.  I would highly recommend Lisa and Saritte Harel team.

We worked with Saritte Harel to sell our house that we recently bought. Especially being first time seller and selling house which we bought recently wasn't an easy thing. Saritte's experience helped us throughout the process and made process move smoothly. Also she has a wonderful team who is always there to take care of things. Not sure how we would have managed without Brandi (one of her team members) when we were not in town and so many things popped up last minute. Overall we had a great experience working with Saritte and her team. She has a very strong understanding of local market. We would strongly recommend her.

Saritte Harel was a great help in selling our mother's home. She helped us find workers to prepare the house for sale (painting, clean up, staging, digging up the oil tank).  She was always available to answer our questions and got us quick sale and a good price.
