Satisfied Clients Recommend Princeton Real Estate

“My name is Jose Luis Tello and I want to thank Miss Ildiko Pali for her excellent service as a short sale provider. She is a wonderful person who has a lot of experience and thanks to her assistance; I was able to sell my house in a short period of time last year. Since the first day I met Miss Ildiko Pali, she was friendly and very helpful.

Thanks to her experience she was able to do a short sale process very quickly and efficiently.

– Jose Luis Tello

I have never met a realtor as competent, compassionate, dependable, and committed as Ildiko. Not only is she extremely competent, it is also a great pleasure to interact with her even over the most tedious of real estate “nuts and bolts.” Ildiko knows how to take care of all the legal and administrative details involved. What I particularly admire is her ability to fight on behalf of her clients in the most gracious fashion. She can pride herself in having introduced her own style of conflict resolution and mediation, beyond ZsaZsa Gabor!

– Adriana Schuler, Ph.D

I would like to take this opportunity to say that you turned an almost insurmountable task into a bearable one. Ildiko, your knowledge, experience, and friendly professionalism guided me through one of the most difficult times in my life. The mere fact that I could reach you any time with questions and problems I was facing was a great source of support and comfort.

Thank you for helping me through the process of selling my property. You made it happen! Thank you.

– Eleanor Torre

I sold my condo in the SOMA area, interviewed five realtors, but Ildiko stood out from the rest. First of all, she priced my condo right; secondly she did an outstanding job doing market research, thirdly, she brought attention to the property with her expertise in the field. She put a lot of time, effort and dedication into the open houses and realtor tours. Lastly, she guided me through the property selling process step-by-step. She helped me come to the right decisions and plans that tailored to my needs and financial situation. As a result I sold my condo in two weeks in the midst of a difficult and unstable market. Ildiko Pali did a superb job!!

I want to express my deepest appreciation for your superlative service and most importantly, the excellent results you achieved in the sale of our condo in SF. You attended to every detail with the utmost attention in every case and went above both of our expectations in providing fully personal, yet professional attention. From our first conversations, to your listing presentation, consultation on how to best present our house, your recommendations for handymen and other professional, open houses, sales negotiations, and to the final closing–you were there ever step of the way. We always felt that you had our best interest at hearts.
