It is without reservation that I write this review for my real estate broker, Roslyn Sibilia.
When COVID occurred, my partner and I finally decided to begin the process of buying a home. My co-worker, who recently bought a home recommended Roslyn: my first and only broker.
On my initial contact with Roslyn, I was taken aback by her genuine personality. She was cordial, welcoming, understood my situation as a first time home-buyer and educated me on the process and corrected the mis-information I found online and filled in a lot of the gaps. Roslyn assured me that when we close: 'Brian, you will know so much about buying a home with its ins and outs- you'll be able to do my job'. That was an understatement as Roslyn educated us every step of the way and was completely transparent with us and never misled us in any way! Roslyn proved to be a consummate professional.
During COVID, Roslyn took all precautions with us as a professional. She brought masks, gloves and even shoe coverings for those more sensitive home-sellers, adhering to all the unprecedented guidances and requirements of her profession during a pandemic.
Roslyn was always on-time, was flexible and was available 7 days a week. She always kept us in the loop! There were days that at the last minute, Roslyn would see 6 homes with us from Ocean County to Middlesex County on the same day. She apparently has a excellent rapport with those who are selling the house because last minute changes on our part were always accommodated.
Roslyn knows all the unexpected nuances with buying a home: flood insurance, CofO, basement drainage, things as a home buyer doesn't immediately appreciate: she would always show us the issue and explain why it *is* an issue, without putting opinion or commentary in her explanations.
As a negotiator, Roslyn represented us professionally, accurately and would never respond on our behalf without running it by us. We experienced some disappointments due to our limited budget, the fierce competition and unexpected challenges with come along with buying a home along the NJ Shore- but Roslyn stuck with us and educated us.
I would recommend Roslyn to anyone that wants a professional with nearly 2 decades of experience that has harnessed successful relationships with sellers, buyers, home inspectors, attorneys and others in the industry.
Closing on our first home- we didn't part ways with Roslyn as a 'broker', we parted ways with Roslyn as a new 'friend'.
