Amy Lonas marketed and sold our house on the Hudson River. Not only was she extremely professional, but she was equally kind, caring and likable throughout the process which is never without its stresses. As a veteran of the real estate industry, exposed to hundreds of transactions and agents, she truly earned her commission.
Amy Lonas is a fantastic agent. She worked tirelessly to find me my dream weekend home. She made me feel like I was her only client and she was zealous in advocating a good deal for me when we found the place I wanted. Amy's a true local in the community and her recall for the history and details of properties is remarkable. I'm so happy with the house she found me that I can't imagine ever selling. But if I had to do it, I wouldn't hesitate in choosing Amy as my listing agent. Less
Lonas- Dream Agent
Not only is Amy a brilliant negotiator, she supports the difficult process from inception to closing, beyond the required role of an agent. Incredibly, she sold my house after the first few showings. Amy was my fourth agent, and while the others were enthusiastic and involved at the beginning- only till the signing of the exclusive contract- Amy was the only one who sustained her interest. She followed through and commun-icated on a continuous basis, dealing with every problem in detail, in-cluding finding a trustworthy and affordable contractor for repairs required after inspection.Her generosity of spirit and loyalty were remarkable. She was always available and responded immediately to all enquiries. She made the process effortless, which would otherwise have been a stressful experience, speeding things along. I wholeheartedly recommend her, if you are looking for an agent that is both attentive and intuitive. I cannot imagine using any other, who might only be thinking in terms of just another property on their list. If you want a more personal way of dealing with what can be a long and arduous process, use Amy. She is the agent not of the year but of the decade.
Amy Lonas is something else. She's excellent at what she does and here is what surprised me: I really like and trust her. I never imagined I would feel this way about a real estate agent, but I do with Amy. She helped my partner and I find OUR home, and we can't imagine any other home being more fitting for us. Throughout the process, she understood what we were looking for, she made us feel comfortable, she was fun, patient, and had the perfect balance of giving us our space and offering us her insight. Plus, she facilitated the transaction going smoothly and quickly. Moving from CA was difficult but Amy helped to make it as easy as someone in her position could. She actually cares and wants to be helpful. Amy Lonas is the way to go.
Amy was professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. I had my home for sale previously with absolutely no interest. Amy had many viewers and, even though it was the dead of winter and the worst time to sell a home, had my home in contract and sold within 4 months. I would recommend her to any prospective purchaser or seller.
Amy Lonas is a professional's professional. She helped my husband and I find a second home in the Woodstock community. Amy was always available to answer questions, responded to emails, texts and telephone calls with incredible grace and punctuality. She is knowledgeable and exhibits a level of patience and humility rarely seen in someone with her level of expertise. She helped us find a home in record speed and we are beyond happy. We recommend her without reservation.
Amy Lonas was absolutely wonderful! At every point she went above and beyond to help us purchase our home. She is extremely knowledgable about the area and we immediately felt we could trust her in every sense. I would recommend her to anyone looking to find a home!
With have been working with Amy ever since our initial contact through Zillow. Amy is a pleasure to work with and has a great knowledge of the area and understands our needs.
Amy really knew the market – I wish we had used her when we first placed our house on the market.
Thanks to Amy!
Satisfied seller in Kingston (after switching from another agency)
"Until I worked with Amy I resisted working with real estate agents, but she changed my point of view. Amy is forthright; she really listened to what parameters my husband and I were working with and she found us the perfect spot, a dream for us. She was accessible. As sensitive as she was to us, she was tough as titanium when it came to negotiating with the other side. And, a bonus, she was fun
“I don't know what better I
could say about a broker except for what I have to say about you - that you
sold our house for a great price when nothing was selling at all.”
Satisfied sellers of the highest sale in Southern Ulster County in 2009
“Amy gave us her undivided attention whenever dealing with us and treated our search for a modest property with the same enthusiasm as if she were searching for a huge estate. Amy was awesome and we are recommending her to all of our friends. She is a sweetheart.”
In a note to Joan Lonergan, Broker/Owner:
“Amy is the most hardworking and tireless agent we’ve met. She took us out to look at properties all day. Unlike other agents, she really understood our needs and really listened. Her knowledge of the area is also incredible.
I hope you can pass on our high regard for her and that you recommend her to many others in the future. We certainly will be.”
My family and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Coldwell Banker for assisting in the sale of my property and compliment the exemplary efforts of Amy Lonas. She went well beyond the expectations of any agent and showed persistence and foresight in making this transaction happen.
To understand what an excellent job she did, I have to summarize the highlights of the sale of this property. Based on her recommendation and knowledge of the local market, we put the house up for sale and had 2 binders within 2 days! What a quick sell you would think! Neither of them qualified however and the house continued to be shown. 6 binders later we finally had a buyer that went to closing.
This house was part of an estate. My family and I are located over 100 miles away on Long Island. Amy was our eyes and ears and paid special attention to the property. She assisted us when the basement flooded, the roof blew off and making sure that our landscaper was maintaining the property correctly. She even made sure that the heating and water was working and no damage was taking place in the house. She actually assisted us in getting repairs done to the property without us leaving Long Island. This allowed us to sleep at night and I can't think of any other words to derscribe this but "Priceless".
When the final buyer came forward she helped coordinate the efforts with the bank, inspectors, contractors etc....She kept in touch with the mortgage brokers, helped expedite the process and anticipated issues that would arise. Amy was actually instrumental in getting the town to grandfather the property into 2 family zoning, which was ultimately required for closing!
During the entire process, Amy was persistent, never gave up, and more importantly kept us optimistic about the sale of this property.
This was not an easy process, but was easier because of all the help, direction, perserverence and positivity that Amy brought to the process.
Amy was highly recommended by the front desk of the hotel we stayed at. This was the best advice that we had ever taken. The sale of this estate property could have been, and probably would have been a nightmare that continued for years without her help and experience.
We highly recommend Amy Lonas and Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty wothout any reservation. You should be very proud to have people like Amy representing your organization.
Thank You and Amy for a job exceptionally done.
