MORTY'S ADVICE AND WISDOM WAS A TREMENDOUS HELP|
Dear Bill Gallo Realty,
When my sister and I were faced with the task of selling our late mother's house, we called Morty Kaplan at Bill Gallo Realty as our mother's friends had had prior positive experiences when using his services.
Selling the house she had lived in for 53 years was one of the hardest things we had to do and Morty helped ease the way through this process from putting the house up for sale through the closing. In addition to selling the house quickly at a very satisfactory price, he arranged for the house to be emptied and even went there to be sure it was being done. He also served as a mediator between all the parties.
His advice and wisdom during these trying months was a tremendous help to my sister and myself. When problems arose he was always a calming influence and we knew he could be counted on to look out for our interests. We cannot say enough about the services of Morty Kaplan. From the very beginning we felt we were in capable hands and he proved this over and over.
"OUTSTANDING TREATMENT OF MY ELDERLY PARENTS"|
I don't write letters of commendation very often, but your outstanding treatment of my elderly parents, Joseph and Lucille Panebiaco, during the recent sale of their home in Malverne, has inspired me.
From the moment I gave you the multiple listing, until their departure to Florida shortly thereafter, you were an integral and indispensable friend to them and to me.
You sold their home quickly, efficiently, and at an excellent price, with gentle concern for my mother and step-father. Beyond that result, which might be considered what a broker should do, you guided them constantly and made sure everything else went well. Arranging for an attorney, a moving company, transportation and countless other details was above and beyond what was expected of you.
For all of this, you have my heartfelt thanks. My parents are now happily established in a beautiful senior community in Boca Raton, Florida. They have asked me to add their thanks to this letter.
If I know of any senior citizens in need of a full service Realtor who will take care of all their real estate needs with love and attention, I won't hesitate to recommend you and your excellent staff.
My sincerest thanks,
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING|
Thanks for everything you have done for me. Since I live way out in Port Jefferson Station and my sister's house was in Ozone Park, Queens, driving to and fro was a chore. Not only did you sell my sister's house in record time but you also lightened my burden by being there to let in the plumber, the appraiser, the water meter man, etc.. This saved me a lot of driving time.
I also want to thank you for watching over the empty house and keeping the property clean
Wish you well in the future and I would definitely recommend you to my friends and neighbors should the need arise.

CELENE IS A MOTIVATED,PROFESSIONAL,AND COMPETENT BROKER|
I write with a sense of gratitute, this letter of recommendation on behalf of Ms. Celene Ricardi.
She was the broker for the estate sale of my mother's coop in Valley Stream. Due to the requirements of the coop board, which were rarely defined, a number of initial prospective buyers were alienated and walked away from offers to purchase. Throughout the entire process, she kept me promptly and fully aware of changes. She also had to deliver and have executed, documents to my sister, who was in poor health and at ever-changing health care facilities on the South Shore of Long Island throughout the process, Nonetheless, she persevered effectively, and the sale was completed in June,2007.
Her service, particularly measured against the sale price of the coop was exemplary. I would have no hesitation in recommending her without limitation to anyone looking fore a motivated, professional, more than competent broker.

JEFF AND CELENE WERE BOTH VERY COMMITED IN EVERY ASPECT OF THE SALE|
Dear Ms. Gallo,
I am writing this letter in support of the two associates in your office who facilitated the sale of my parents' home at 64 Heatherfield Rd in Mill Brook: Celene Riccardi and Jeffrey Biegel.
Celene and Jeff were both very committed in every aspect of the sale. Jeff gave me excellent advice on how to set up the house for quick sale as well as recommending superb people to do minor jobs around the house. As you know, the house quickly at the open house. At that time Jeff, backed up by Celene and very able office staff, acted as go between during negotiations on price which was settled at a level very close to our target within an hour. After that Celene stepped in, helping to manage things every step of the way. She arranged for and was present during termite inspection and the actual job. She and Jeff also walked through the house with me helping to decide the disposition of property. Celene recommended and arranged with Joy Tag Sales, and introduced me to Joy for the final clean-up of the house and sale of unwanted property. By the way, Joy was a joy to deal with, and was instrumental in organizing and cayying out a difficult move. She also always seemed to know who or how a certain thing should be done.
In short, Celene and Jeff helped through a very stressful experience with a kind of firm grace that is difficult to put into words. Although I would never describe the experience of selling the home I grew up in as pleasant, the help they gave me made it infinitely easier. I unhesitatingly commend them for a job well done.

Thank for everything! Now that we've closed on our parents' house, I am writing on behalf of my family to let you know how much we appreciate everything you did to help the transactons go smoothly. From your suggestions on how to create a more appealing, eye-catching, "homey" feel to the house, to your guidance and assistance towards finding the proper workers to quickly get necessary last-minute tasks taken care of, your help took much of the burden off our shoulders,
Gallo Realty is extremely fortunate to have someone such as you associated with their sales staff.The approach you have towards your career is a fine mix of professional attitude Links of London and persnal warmth. Your knowledge of real estate in the area (I'm sure) helped us get top dollar for the house we grew up in and have always - regardless of where any of us may have been living at the time - known as home.
In addition, I would like to personally thank you for always being available to field every and any question I had, and for being as dedicated and involved as you always proved yourself to be. If you spend as much time on every sale as you did with ours, you probably have little time for anything else.
Once again, on behalf of the whole family - thanks, thanks, thanks, - you've been a big help.

Unlike our first experience, you were helpful from the beginning. You weren't pushy and didn't try to persuade us into bidding on a house. You were patient and helped us look in all different areas and you kept us in our price range. We are so grateful to you for assisting us in finding our house and being patient and kind to us during the whole process. When we decide to sell and buy again, we'll be contacting you! Thank you for all of your help in finding our house. And lucky for us, we found you!

WE WERE IN GOOD HANDS|
On behalf of my mother and myself, I want to express our thanks for all you did in selling my Mom's house. I felt we were in good hands when we first met you, and your expertise, contacts and help at the closing proved that to be so, and then some.
I feel a tremendous relief now that the house is sold and that my Mom is so happy with her new life at "The Bristol". I will wholeheartedly recommend you and your agency to anyone looking for a great Realtor.
All the best ---- Diane Webster

READ WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT MORTY KAPLAN|
Dear Mrs. Gallo-Turschmann,
I am writing to let you know how pleased I am with all the help I received in selling my mother and father's home in Valley Stream. It was difficult for me to do this because of the memories associated with the house. But with the assistance of Morty Kaplan, the task was made easier. Morty provided me with excellent advice, and was extremely patient in assisting me in getting the house sold. He knew what needed to be done, and provided me with the information I needed. The contractors he recommended were reliable and prompt in their response, Since I live upstate, Morty's assistance was vital in getting the house in compliance with the village building code. Morty was also very understanding and kind during the entire process of selling the house. I would highly recommend your realty because of my positive interaction with Morty.
Also your secretary was very helpful in contacting people and relaying information for me.
Again, I want to thank you, Morty and your secretary for all your help. It was a pleasure working with you.
