Dear Shari –
Both Socorro and I wanted to thank you for the tremendous job you did on marketing and selling our home in Livingston. As you are aware, when we initially interviewed brokers to list our home in 2009, we spoke with you and Coldwell Banker. At that time we chose Coldwell Banker based on our belief at that time that they would do a better job marketing our home. Using hindsight, we were very wrong! In the first week of having our home on the market, we received two “inferior” offers and rather than using the fact that two buyers were interested in the property and getting them to increase their offers, they wanted us to significantly drop our price below what they believed the fair market value was. After giving Coldwell two more months to get a reasonable offer (in that period, several other low-ball offers were received and, again, their negotiating skills were lacking in our opinion), we pulled our listing.
Fast forwarding, when we decided to re-list our property, we chose to go with you. You prepared more professional marketing documents, including an on-line virtual tour and within the first week of having our home on the market with you, we had multiple offers presented. Again, the initial offers were “low-ball” offers, but in a stark contrast to Coldwell Banker, you worked the buyers to ultimately get them to increase their offers above the initial asking price. Further, as the sales process continued, you continued to go above and beyond to make sure the sale closed. Your assistance in dealing with inspection issues that were presented by the Buyer was exceptional, and as a result, your efforts assured the close of the sale.
Needless to say, Socorro and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wishes to list their home for sale. You did a spectacular job for us on this sale, you worked tirelessly to assist us in finding a new home, and needless to say, when we need the services of a real estate agent in the future, you are our one and only choice.

We wanted to thank you for your amazing help and support during the sale of our home in Livingston.You offered spot-on advice in terms of staging and pricing. Your instincts are incredible as are your knowledge of neighborhoods and markets. We were so impressed with your willingness to do whatever it took to "get the sale done" From helping to move furniture,to waiting at our house for estimates, you clearly went way above and beyond the call of duty. During all of our years of house-hunting in Livingston, we never have seen a Realtor more capable ,professional and caring as you. All your hard work paid off and we sold our home for more than we imagined!
Jeff & Lori Hershey~10 Iroquois Drive, Livingston NJ ("Coventry Estates")
We simply wanted to extend our thanks for your patience and support during the home sale and purchase process. Your accessibility via phone and email was a great comfort during what could have been a very stressful period. Your guidance and marketing program enabled us to sell our townhouse during a very challenging market. The listings were full of similar properties in our development and you still managed to get us our asking price. Your professionally generated listing brochure and sophisticated virtual tour drew traffic that other sellers just didn't see. Most importantly you helped us locate the "home" where we intend to spend the next 20+ years. It took countless exploratory trips to at least 4-5 towns in the area until we managed to find a place less than 1 mile from our old one! Your knowledge of the area and ability to describe the pulse of the current market was invaluable. Thanks again for all of your time and attention. We will never hesitate to recommend you.
All the best,
Richard & Margaret Morrow~13 Nottingham Road, Livingston NJ
You know that you have been an invaluable resource to us since we began the process of looking for our home. We would like to share our experience with your other clients and potential clients, so they can hear firsthand how wonderful you are: My husband and I lived in Manhattan while conducting our search for a home in Livingston, NJ. With our work schedules and no car, we could only make in into NJ on weekends, and Shari did everything she could to accommodate our schedules (including managing some aspects our our purchase process without us present whenever possible). She was always reachable, reassuring, and willing to answer any questions we had (and if she didn't know the answer offhand, she always got back to us once she looked into it). She was incredibly adept at understanding what we were looking for, staying within our price range, and offering a wide spectrum of properties for us to see in the limited time that we had. When we did decide to make an offer on what is now our house, Shari stayed late with us on a Saturday evening, taking time to explain everything. As she likes to say, she "held our hand" every step of the way and became much more than a real estate agent for us. Our distant dream of owning a house became a reality with the help of Shari, and I would recommend her to anyone I know. Since we have moved, we have kept in touch with Shari and she has proved to be an invaluable resource for us within the Livingston community. She has helped us find everything from exterminators to painters to car repair. She has become a friend and neighbor, and has helped us settle into this new community more than she could ever know. In an ideal world, every professional relationship would be just like the one we have with Shari. She is not only great at her job, but goes above and beyond what is required of her at a moment's notice. Always professional, Shari is motivated, responsible, generous and kindhearted. We hope that down the road, when we want to sell this house and move to another, Shari will still be in town!

Reza and I would like to thank you for all your help and kindness during our house hunting. You are truly an amazing and impressive realtor. We strongly recommend Shari to anyone looking for a house. We have two little children and a very busy schedule. Without Shari's patience and flexibility, we would have been unable to find our house. She was always available (any day of the week) and made us feel really comfortable. House hunting became even "fun" for our children, as they loved being around Shari. She became a friend and "held our hand" all the way throughout the process. Shari continued assisting and helping us in finding a landscaper, an exterminator and a cleaning lady even after we have purchased our house in Summit. She was always available when we needed information. Extremely efficient and friendly, Shari is more than a Realtor, she is someone you can always rely on. Shari, we truly appreciate all your help and support and hope to stay in touch with you and your wonderful family.
Love, Marianne and Reza Rezavi ~74 Tall Oaks, Summit NJ
In a very tough townhouse market you helped us get an offer within a month. What we thought would be an easy sale quickly turned into an incredibly difficult situation. There were so many points where the deal could have fallen through. With your help and guidance we made it to close. We did not have confidence in the deal but you worked hard and saw it through to completion. Thank you, Thank you! We appreciate all of the time and care you put into the deal. We could not have made it without you.

Shari is an amazing real estate agent! She's professional,savvy and aggressive. She helped us sell our home in only a week! Her advise was spot -on and shes extremely personable and trustworthy. Shari was attentive to our personal needs and made us feel at ease through the whole process. If I had to do it all over again,I would only work with Shari and would not hesitate to recommend her to all my friends .

Dear Shari, I want to thank you for helping in the process of purchasing a house in Livingston. Like everyone else, buying a house is the biggest investment of our life. It goes without saying there are a lot of anxiety involved in it. Fortunately, we had Shari on our side to help us every step of the process. Shari was resourceful and always available to help at resolving issues that arose in the transaction. Our purchase transaction was not particularly smooth to say the least. There were bumps along the way. Yet Shari was there to give it a nudge when it seemed the transaction was going nowhere. Without her pushing behind the scene, the transaction probably would not have happened. We are particularly impressed by her endless energy and dedication to her job. In the middle of our purchase transaction, Shari was unfortunately ill and needed some time to recuperate. We were initially worried but later found out our worries were needless. She had arranged for an equally capable associate to fill in when she couldn't. Even so, we were surprise to learn that she was involved every step of the way on the side line while she was in the hospital and later recuperating at home. Shari, your endless energy, capability and willingness to go over and above of what is required of you have made you a successful realtor. I would recommend you to any prospective buyers and sellers alike.

Shari worked tirelessly as we searched to buy a home to suit our family. Her extensive knowledge of the market, her relationships with her cohorts, and her attention to detail helped our process move smoothly and efficiently from viewing open houses through closing. Given today's real estate market, her bigger challenge was to sell our home. Again, her relationships in addition to her talented team of adjunct professionals helped us prepare our home for sale. We were ultimately under contract in 7 days. Shari's commitment to us as her clients and her genuine respect for her profession was evident throughout. We are incredibly grateful for her work.

My husband and I would like to express our sincere thanks for your helping us find our home in Livingston, first the rented house, then the purchased one. Although you were "accidently" referred to us by a friend's agent, I have to say we are lucky than our friends that we had you as our real estate agent and later a valuable friend. We appreciate not only your expertise, knolwedge, and insights in the real estate profession, but also you as a person who always have careful thoughts for your clients. I admire your patience with us the most, in almost two years, we never felt pushed by you to purchase a house, you have been so patient with me to see one house after another, help us to sought through the advantages and disadvantages of each house given your knowing of our needs. Thank you for sharing our tears and joys during the house hunting process. Thank you for being an always welcomed friend of our children. Best wishes for your work and your family! Love, Annie & Jack

When we decided to put our rental property on the market and needed a realtor, Shari came to our mind. It was just so natural that we came to rely upon Shari for her expertise and service. We found Shari through luck when we searched for a house in Livingston nearly two years ago. Our experience with Shari’s service was excellent. If I had to use two words to describe Shari’s service, it would be “turn-key service”. Shari guided us every step of the way in the process providing services over and beyond call of duty: she researched and suggested comparable rental prices of similar properties on the market; she had a professional photographer took pictures of our property for marketing free of charge; she took good care of the property like her own – put a basket filled with booties in the front door for prospective renters to put on in inclement weather; she frequently provided us with feedback on the property showings. As a landlord new in the business, Shari even taught us how to select a good prospective tenant from many applicants. We didn’t find out until some time later that Shari had one secret weapon in her possession which few realtors could match up with: that is her husband Steve who is just a phone call away. Steve is an expert in his own right and manages a large group of rental properties in a separate business. I even joked about the husband-wife team – it is like “buy one get one free”! With Shari’s help, we rented out our property to a good family in an expected time frame. We couldn’t be happier with Shari’s professional service and customer friendly approach. Thanks Shari, a job well done!

Thanks so much for all of your help in finding our family a new home. Moving to a new State is a very challenging event. Your hard work scouting out houses on our behalf was greatly appreciated. Your knowledge of the Livingston area and the real estate profession was phenomenal. We've truly found a great home for our family to create lasting memories.

Shari, Thank you so much for all your help in both the selling and buying of my homes. This is the second time around that I have used your services, obviously which says a lot. Four years ago you helped me to buy a home and you helped me to buy the house before an open house even occurred, avoiding a bidding war which surely would have been priced out of. Then recently, you helped me sell my house within a week of it being on the market. And a few weeks later you helped me purchase another home. You are diligent, caring, and passionate and I couldn't be where I am without you. Thank you for "holding my hand" during these stressful times. I will continue to recommend you to my friends and family. You are the best Realtor around! Danielle

Thank you so much for your seeing us to the end of our "marathon" search for a new home. We are so happy with our beautiful house! I will always remember our first conversation about putting our house on the market and feeling completely comfortable that we had chosen the right person to see us through this exciting and stressful process of buying and selling. You were unendingly patient with us as we searched for our home and always gave us heartfelt and honest advice. You and Steven took such good care of us and you will forever be like family to Ryan and me. Shari, we couldn't have gotten though this buy and sell process without you. We love you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are truly amazing at what you do. Love, Julie & Ryan

My husband and I decided to list our town home minutes after sitting down with Shari. She was organized, knowledgeable and realistic. She didn’t tell us what we wanted to hear, she told us what we needed to know to make an informed decision. Shari consistently gave us the bottom line, never using hyperbole to simply get a deal written.
Like most families, we work very hard and have very limited free time. Shari was always mindful of our needs and wants, while being completely honest and practical. When I was extremely nervous about having an open house Shari made sure to do everything possible to put me at ease. She was quickly able to sell our home with minimal disruptions to our daily routines. Moreover, when the first deal fell through, Shari was ready again with her contagious smile and positive thinking. Thanks to Shari, our home sold again within the week!
Throughout the selling process she was always available at any time of the day or night. Shari embodies what you would want most from a realtor: honesty, integrity and thoughtfulness. When you list your house with Shari Miller, she is there for you through every step, big or small. She always had our best interest in mind and in her heart. There is no one like her and I would not and could not have asked for more. There was nothing she wouldn’t have done to help us, even offering to help me pack!! Thank you, Shari, from the bottom of my heart for all you did for our family.

But we also needed to buy....
It was not easy for us to find a new home that met our needs. Not only did we have specifications for a certain house, but a very specific area we wanted to live. Shari has an amazing network at her fingertips, which she used to make sure we got everything we wanted, and more. There was no stopping her once we decided what we wanted. She went to bat for us and always hit a homerun! Shari leaves no stone unturned. From making sure the inspector did his job properly (she literally climbed a ladder to check the attic) to going down to the building department to make sure we were 100% protected before purchasing our new home, Shari did it all! She spent hours with us looking for homes during the day, and I frequently woke up in the morning to emails from her with ideas she had during the night. More impressive was how well received Shari was everywhere we went. For instance, at a broker open house another agent actually stopped to tell me how wonderful Shari was and how we couldn’t be in better hands!
As was the case with the sell of our home, buying a home with Shari Miller means that she will not rest until you have the home of your dreams, at the fair market price. I was shocked when I realized she was working with several other families at the same time. Shari always made me feel as though I was her only client. She is always calm, cool and collected no matter the situation. As we start our life in our new home we will always have Shari to thank for making all our dreams come true.

We have been living in our beautiful new home for one week and could not be happier with our house and fantastic neighborhood. We have no doubt that we would have never found this house or sold our home so quickly if it hadn't been for Shari Miller. Shari not only helped us find our dream house before it went on the MLS, but sold our other house in one weekend with fourteen offers!!! Shari is in a league of her own among realtors. There is no question why she is so successful at what she does. We will highly recommend her to all our friends and anyone looking to buy or sell. You will not find someone who works harder or is more knowledgable about the real estate market. She went above and beyond in every way. From bringing in a professional photographer to help sell our home, to showing up at inspections while we were on vacation, to bringing in her handy man to help with minor repairs on the house we were selling. She was always there to help in anyway she could and paid attention to every possible detail. Thank you Shari! Our family is so happy in our new home thanks to you!
