Dear Laura, The purpose of this letter is to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for selling my home. Before meeting you at the end of August, I endured a grueling series of open houses and private showings. It was the most stressful six months of my life, and I ended up taking my house off market. A week later I got your letter of introduction. After a single phone call, you had impressed me so much that I decided to give it another try. Here’s the difference between you and several other agents I’d dealt with:
- Instead of expecting me to host endless public open houses, you said you didn’t believe in public open houses.
- Instead of telling me that raising my asking price was out of the question, you said “Let me look at the comps,” and then we raised it over 5%.
- Instead of telling me to petition the Board to lower our common charges, you said our common charges were pretty reasonable.
- Instead of telling me the taxes for my home were too high, you told me that people who want to pay low taxes shouldn’t be looking at waterfront property in Northport.
- Instead of allowing an endless number of Lookie-Loos and Tire-Kickers to view my home, you prequalified a few select buyers for showings.
- Instead of taking over 6 months to come up with two very weak offers, you took less than one month to find a qualified buyer who wanted to pay cash, give me ample time to find a home for myself, and who made me a generous offer.
What’s not to like? Anyone would be crazy not to want to work with you!
Sincerely, Jackie U., Lord Joe’s LandingDear Laura, The purpose of this letter is to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for selling my home.

We listed our home with Laura Zambratto and her associate John Haines in January of this year after a 6 month stint with another realtor who was unsuccessful selling it. From the get-go, we could see that the team from Daniel Gale was at the highest level when it came to professionalism, market awareness and most important, ability to sell our home. Laura and John made sure our home was priced right and they worked hard to set up showings and open house for other agents and homeowners. The result? Not one but 5 offers five weeks after we listed with them. The final selling price was ABOVE our asking price and everything from the time of offer through closing was painless thanks to their responsiveness and diligence. Overall, selling our home with Laura and John was a wonderful experience and we would give them the highest endorsement.We listed our home with Laura Zambratto and her associate John Haines in January of this year after a 6 month stint with another realtor who was unsuccessful selling it.

I interviewed three realtors and picked Laura Z to represent me because of her special insight into the selling process complemented by her open, friendly, and professional manner. Before putting my house on the market, she and her associate, John Haines, made strategic suggestions to optimize the salability of the home—refinish the floors, paint each room of the first floor, paint outside trim, AND, declutter. After the house was listed and an immediate open house, we got a bid within 4-5 days. She worked effectively with the buyer and me to arrive at a price we both parties were happy with. Subsequently, she kept me apprised of the contract process—engineer, appraisal, survey, etc. There was no stress in this whole experience, just lots of questions from me. Laura always answered on the mark while putting me at ease at the same time. All-in-all, I would hire Laura again, whether buying or selling.I interviewed three realtors and picked Laura Z to represent me because of her special insight into the selling process complemented by her open, friendly, and professional manner.
