    Abby gave Ilene 5 stars out of 5
    Ilene was terrific to work with from day one. She knows the market inside and out, and her insight was invaluable at every step of the process; from pricing our dads home accurately and preparing it for sale to contract negotiations, dealing with inspection items and closing. Ilene was always available to answer our questions or run over to the house to meet with service people or town inspectors on our behalf. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional agent who is a specialist in her area, Ilene should be your top choice.

    Danny gave Ilene 5 stars out of 5
    We chose Ilene Cashman to list our house for her outstanding reputation,specialization in active adult community & her deep knowledge of our neighborhood. She went to work right away to get our house ready for listing, went over every part of the house pointing out everything that needed to be addressed. She was readily available & keen to follow up on all issues related to the sale. Our house was under contract in a matter of days & Ilene set a new record high on the sale of our twin home in the community. We are very glad to have her as our agent & appreciate her hard work. Aida & Danny

    I strongly recommend Ilene Cashman as real estate agent. Her work for me to relocate from Georgia and to buy property in NJ was above all my expectations. It was very professional with attention to details. She has all strengths marked below. Her recommendations regarding real estate attorney and licensed home inspector were especially important to get very good professional service for reasonable price. I hope my review will help others to get what they are looking for in the real estate.market.

    Ilene sold the house in one day. She did a great job negotiating with a difficult customer. Ilene went to the house for needed inspections. She addressed any issue that arose including a last minute run to get paint cans and garbage bags left behind and over to recycling.

    David gave Ilene 5 stars out of 5
    I started working with Ilene over 3 years ago, when I was first considering purchasing a home in Monroe, but before I was close to ready to consummate a deal. I was candid about my indefinite timetable at the time, and Ilene agreed to listen to my "wish list" of features and show me properties that met my criteria at that time. I live almost 1000 miles west of Monroe, and left with an agreement that Ilene, who by then understood what I was looking for, would keep me in mind when additional properties came on the market that met my criteria. Ilene was proactive in contacting me periodically about my readiness, to purchase, and when I finally told her that I would be looking seriously, she sent me information about the current market, and specific offerings. Her first suggestions were close to my target requirements, and after giving her feedback about what we liked and what we did not like, she was right on target with the next selections. Working remotely, she guided my friend who lived nearby to tour the house while I participated via a zoom call, and did a virtual walk through. I asked questions, with my friend being able to make additional observations and bring the camera where I wanted to see something close up. She guided me through the process of making a bid, and during the bidding process she advised me not to go forward, due to some terms in that the seller insisted on that were not to my benefit. She told me that she was aware that another house of the same model was going on the market within a month, and it may be even a better fit to my criteria. I followed her suggestion, and when the second house was ready, I again toured it remotely. Ilene was correct that this house met my criteria, and I made a bid that was accepted. In addition to making the difficult task of finding a house remotely work smoothly, she provided valuable guidance and leads for an inspection service and a selection of lawyers to represent me. After the bid was accepted, I traveled to join the inspector to check that all was well; Ilene facilitated that trip as well as the final walk through inspection prior to closing. Overall, I was extremely pleased with the entire process.

    Bernice gave Ilene 5 stars out of 5
    As a recent widow who relied on my husband to handle such details., Ilene made the process of selling my home very easy I have checked all the boxes that portrays her strengths but would have to say her communication skills and responsiveness are at the top of the list.. Her list of resources that you might need during this process were great. All those persons that I selected from the list were great and very professional with a human touch. The entire selling process went without any hick-ups!

    Mark gave Ilene 5 stars out of 5
    Illene certainly knows the ins and outs of the adult communities but more importantly she VERY quickly grasped what would interest us in terms of size, layout, finishes, and lifestyle. She was always willing to show us a unit and made herself available at short notice. No matter when I would write her, she would get back to me right away. She was very approachable and did not seem annoyed when we walked away from 2 deals ( with the 3rd being a winner). I had read rave reviews prior to selecting her and they were spot on!

    Ilene was very helpful in selling our mother's house. She shared with us a list of contractors and service providers to help get the house is sellable condition and was a great sounding board for what work to do and what not to do. She obviously knew the market well and helped us sell the house for over asking price.

    We have worked with Ilene twice. The first time she generously helped us find a home when we were relocating to the area. Ten years later when we decided to move we knew there was only one agent to help us sell our home-Ilene! She is the best.

    Ilene was wonderful to work with in finding a new home for my parents. She stayed on top of new listings and notified us promptly allowing us to find the perfect home. She was patient in dealing with both myself and my parents. Ilene has a strong knowledge of the community and her assistance helped make this a stress free process through closing.

    Monica gave Ilene 5 stars out of 5
    I can only say Ilene is very knowledgeable about the area that fit my exact needs. She helped in every step of the way. She was in touch at all times. In fact she stayed with the inspection person during the inspection which meant I didn’t need to come from Long Island. I trusted her because I knew I could. She always had my interest as her client. She walked me through the entire process and made it as stress free as possible. I can honestly say I would use her again and recommend her to any friends and family.

    Ms. Cashman devoted her energies to finding suitable places to show, taking into account that I was not living in the area. She also showed great tolerance for the fact that I was not ready to buy for more than a year after she initially showed me the first properties.

    Ilene is a true professional in every sense of the word, a diligent go getter, that treats her clients like family, she is extremely familiar with the local area and can call on her reliable team of repair people, electricians and inspectors, our relationship was made even more challenging by the fact that she sold my late fathers home in Clearbrook, NJ, while I, the executor of my dad's estate, was back home in Colorado! Ilene went above and beyond to get the house closed before winter and succeeded with flying colors, Thank You again, couldn't have done it without you! Sincerely, Ron Traub

    Thomas gave Ilene 5 stars out of 5
    When we first contacted Ilene it was totally on a blind call to someone who dealt with homes in an over 55 community. Turns out this was the best call we could've made. Ilene turned out to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, caring in helping us discover what kind of home we wanted and what complex would best suit our needs and wishes. She is/was always available to us whenever we had questions on the different properties and communities she showed us and showed extreme patience when I showed frustration as to how the process was going. She is the ultimate expert in her field and deserves ultimate recognition from her office and her company. Without hesitation I recommend Ilene Cashman highly and without hesitation to anyone looking to move to the Monroe Township area. Job well done, with much satisfaction on our part as her clients.

    Ilene is a fantastic Real Estate Agent. My mother passed away and I had to sell her home. Ilene came highly recommended and I can see why. She was very helpful right from the beginning (even before I decided to list ), Ilene was very knowledgeable as well as helpful. She was always available to answer any questions I had. She also was great at following up to make sure, I had everything I needed to get ready for the closing. Having to deal with selling a property after the loss of my mom was very difficult, But Ilene's assistance made it much easier. I would give her 10 stars if it was possible. :)

    We were lucky to have randomly chosen Ilene as our broker. She knew what we wanted and where we should look. We had several disappointments along the way and I know she will never forget us. In the end she found us the perfect place to retire. Any question we had she knew the answer or found out the answer for us. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the communities and made the transition seamless for us. I would recommend her to anyone I know looking to settle in Monroe Twp. Thanks again Ilene for your persistence.
