To Our Friends and Neighbors,
Helen and Faith M. P.
It is with a very heavy heart that the Makriplis family will close the door to our home after 48 years, for the last and final time. As a real estate sales associate for 28 years, I knew that I could not fairly execute the sales transaction of my childhood home. That is precisely why I turned to Irene Gringuz of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty for her guidance. It was with her expertise, honesty and extensive knowledge of the neighborhood that the sales transaction went as smoothly as possible given the emotions the whole family were feeling. She priced the home correctly, and we had an accepted offer almost at full asking price within the first week. She also went above and beyond by checking the house often and even shoveling snow with her son so that we would not receive another ticket, without being asked. That being said, I would highly recommend Irene if you are thinking of buying or selling a home.
I feel that I just had to write to let you know of the fine service provided to me concerning the sale of my home at 8054 235th Street, Queens Village, NY 11427 by Mrs. Gringuz.
There were several problems along the way that could have made me unable to close the deal, but Mrs. Gringuz was able to find the solution for each bump in the road to a closing.
My closing was mid-October 2014, and I feel she was the key factor in the completion of the sale.
We chose Irene Gringuz to be our realtor when we were required to sell a house we had inherited in New York. We live in Connecticut, which made Irene the perfect realtor for us. She has a solid understanding of the real estate market in Hollis Hills, because she has lived in the area all of her life and is raising her family in this community. She knew the value of the house immediately. She was able to speak knowledgeably about the school system and other community services from her personal experience. Since we lived three hours away from the house, we became dependent on Irene to keep an eye on the house and in one instance, she saved us from major problems when the heat shut off in December. I have come to learn that she apparently provides this kind of support and supervision to all of what she calls "her houses" while they are in the time period of finding a buyer and then waiting for the house closing to happen. Irene is a superb professional who seems to enjoy her work and both her ‘buyers' and ‘sellers' with whom she establishes a relationship that we will miss. We cannot possibly recommend Irene any higher. She was nothing short of perfect.

Selling our home in Hollis Hills where we lived for 45 years was a stressful and emotional process. When we signed with Irene Gringuz of Daniel Gale Sotheby's, we immediately felt that we were in good hands. Throughout the entire process we were dealing with the consummate professional… Irene knew the community; she priced the house to give us the greatest monetary return; advertised our home in a timely and tasteful manner; guided us through the process with the buyer and attorneys. What was most important to us was our trust in her working for us from the time we signed on to the closing and our move. We are moving to the Greens in Melville.

She was like our guardian angel; watching over us, caring for us and making sure the sale of our home went smoothly.

We cannot express our gratitude enough to her for closing our house at a price that was beneficial to the seller and the buyer. I would not hesitate a moment to recommend her services to family and friends and we would definitely utilize her again of the need arose.

Knowledgeable, Dedicated, Professional, Persistent, Kind, Honest, Calming… These words spell IRENE GRINGUZ.
The search seemed endless and nerve wracking. I don't know what we would have done if not for Irene's intuitiveness and knowledge. Her perseverance landed us the PERFECT home and we have only her to thank.
THANK YOU IRENE FOR PLACING A RAINBOW IN OUR LIVES…
Irene worked tirelessly to get our house sale completed. She went above and beyond helping us through many challenges along the way and always gave 110%. She is always courteous and professional and most importantly we feel the deal wouldn't have happened without her. I would highly recommend Irene.
My experience as a buyer working with Irene has been nothing but positive. Irene has made herself available at all times and always responded to e-mails, texts and phone calls promptly. In addition, Irene has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to real estate. She played a key role in helping us close our first home by facilitating communications between all parties involved in the transaction. Irene went above and beyond when we were in contract and got to the root of every problem that stood in our way! Even after having our offer accepted, Irene checked on the house during inclement weather to make sure everything was okay. Irene is very passionate about real estate and an expert in the field. We would definitely recommend Irene to anybody in search of a home and are thankful for everything she did for us!

In her handling of the sale of our house on Hartland Avenue, Mrs. Irene Gringuz has been nothing short of a godsend. Mrs. Irene Gringuz guided us perfectly in the difficult process of selling a house in a tricky market. Her unfailing acumen prevented us from making mistakes in the pricing or the presentation of our house. Her deep knowledge of the local real estate market and keen understanding of both the seller’s and buyer's needs and expectations made possible a happy outcome for both our buyers and ourselves. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Mrs. Gringuz.

Our lawyer Michael Cohen, recommended a Real Estate Sales person, Irene Burn Gringuz and Daniel Gale of Sotheby’s International Realty. The experience with our agent Irene Gringuz was excellent, walking us thru the whole procedure, and being we are elderly, appreciated how patient and kind she was to us. She explainined every step of the way, calling us ahead of time, to let us know exactly what was happening. She was always there with us, and no matter when we had questions, always got back to us, returning our call as soon as possible. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about her and definitely would recommend her without hesitation.

She was the dual agent for the seller and us (the buyers) and she tried to help us to move the deal forward. She is straightforward so it is very easy to communicate with her. Even after the closing, she shared her ideas with us regarding home renovation and improvement. She is on top of everything and we would highly recommend her!

To whom it may concern:
I am delighted to write this letter of recommendation for Irene Gringuz—realtor beyond compare.
Quite unexpectedly, I was faced with selling my house in Hollis Hills, NY. I immediately contacted Irene as I had heard of her expertise over the years. I met with her and explained the need to sell quickly. She outlined what I could expect from her, suggested the price the house could go for, advised me of her charges, and recommended what I needed to do as the seller.
It was clear from the outset that Irene was an expert in her field and I gladly followed her lead. In no time flat she lined up clients and advised me when she would be arriving with them and suggested I be a silent observer or not be there at all – invaluable advice. Whenever she notified me that she would be arriving with a potential buyer, I left the house. Within a day or so, she would review, if worthwhile, what had taken place. Before I expected it, she felt she had a very solid buyer and it was a done deed. What I felt strongly about Irene is that she knows how to deal with both buyers and sellers and each comes away with the feeling that each are being treated fairly and with respect.
Although leaving the home I had happily lived in for 50 years was not easy, Irene’s caring and professional attention made the experience bearable. In my book she is an A+ genuine person.
We were very fortunate to have you as our agent . You are considerate , sincere and honest .
