04/18/2016 - Joanne Burns Helped me rent a Apartment home in West New York, NJ. Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills: Maggie was recommended to me, and from our first meeting I could clearly see why she was held in such high regard. She very quickly caught on to the things that were most / least important to me and identified places that right up my alley. Even the ones that weren't, as Maggie said, "The ones you don't like are just as important as the ones you do like when you're trying to find the right place." And, she has a lot more wisdom where that came from. Her follow-up is 100% dependable. She's very knowledgeable, very well liked by listing companies, and very easy to get along with. You can't go wrong with Maggie...she's the "right choice" for any housing need

Maggie is a priceless real estate agent. I don’t know where to start to describe how thankful we are. Not only she is excellent at her job, but she also went far beyond our highest expectations. As first time owners and foreigners, we had no idea of the complexity of a house purchase. Maggie spent  countless hours explaining what we needed to know and answered all of our questions, at any time of the day and night. I remember receiving answers at 11pm as well as 5am. I have never seen anyone so dedicated and willing to find us the perfect place at a fair price. We scheduled several house visits with her, each within our criteria and price range. She pointed out the pros, cons and potential issues to watch for each house, without ever pressuring us or urging us to make a decision. The house we liked had multiple offers, so Maggie’s advice were extremely helpful to get the house at the price we were comfortable with, yet making our offer the most attractive to the sellers. She was excellent at negotiating with the seller’s agent on our behalf, and kept us promptly informed of any developments. Once the offer got accepted, Maggie attended the house inspection, found us some contractors to provide house repair estimates, and even got copies of all permits on the house to make sure all of them were closed prior to the sale. We had an amazing experience with her. She is such a fabulous person to deal with, and an example for all the professionals in this industry

 Maggie provided invaluable guidance at every step in the home selling process, set reasonable expectations, and her efforts ultimately resulted in an offer being accepted about 1 month after listing the property, with closing around 3 months after listing.

  Would use again as well as recommend to friends and family!

In January of this year my husband and I decided it was time to down size from our family home of over 30 years to a more manageable space. My son was also selling his home and recommended Margaret (Maggie) Ludwiczak. Upon contacting Maggie, we recognized her professionalism, knowledge, and expertise in the World of Real Estate. Her questions were direct and to the point, her answers to our questions were the same.

Our first personal meeting just reinforced our belief that Maggie was the realtor for us. She took the time to explain the process and relieve the fears and concerns that we had. Her knowledge and investigative work on the area in which our home was showed that she was truly working to help sell our home in a timely manner for the right price.

Working with Maggie was like being on HGTV, her commitment to detail (personally planting spring flowers in my front yard) for curb appeal as well as the interior of our home was surprising to me. I have known many people selling homes and their realtor was not that engaged. Maggie always made us feel that we were her only clients and never made you feel our questions and concerns were not important.

Our home sold in 5 days with multiple bids and was really easy sailing. My husband and I have recommended Maggie to many friends who are thinking of down sizing now too. I feel that Maggie's inter-personal skills and her knowledge are unsurpassed and am confident that you will be highly successful with Maggie if you follow her directions and use her knowledge and expertise as stepping sstones to getting the job done.

Sincerely,

Penelope and Benjamin Wilson

Margaret "Maggie" Ludwiczak was like having a trusted friend working closely with us throughout the entire process of selling our home.

She is experienced, focused, knowledgeable, and an extremely hard worker. Maggie consistently went above and beyond in helping us prepare, organize, and present our home. She was readily available for all our concerns, and questions throughout the entire process, and most importantly, stayed thoroughly involved from start to finish.

I would highly recommend Maggie's expertise, professionalism, and experience when trying to navigate all the information in the World of Real Estate.

Maggie was our agent when we purchased our home in Bloomfield.

If there were an A+++++ then that would be more appropriate as a rating for realtors, Maggie is it.

She was a true professional and did everything possible to make sure that the home buying process was smooth. She made sure to educate us on the process and even found us a home in a tough market with equity already in it. How often does that happen these days? We would highly recommend her as a buyer's agent!

Simply ~ Maggie is the best!

To Whom It May Concern,

When we decide to sell our house on 36 Lexington Avenue in Montclair, NJ in 2011, we were worried whether we would be able to sell the house (which was over a hundred years old) at a profit - especially with the economy and the housing market being dismal.

Margaret ("Maggie") Ludwiczak put our minds at ease. She gave us honest, straightforward advice on how to get the house ready for sale and quite frankly, held our hands through the entire process. We put the house on the market in December 2011 (right before the holidays) and it was sold in April 2012 for a very nice profit!

Maggie is honest, trustworthy, hardworking, and dedicated to getting your house sold at a good price in the shortest amount of time. Considering the fact that we moved out of state before the house was even on the market, Maggie took it upon herself to clean, repair not only the fine details of the house, but also the backyard which is very large. She also went the extra mile by forwarding our mail to our new address and monitoring the heating system and house security.

Ms. Ludwiczak is a real estate agent at the top of her game and we are extremely grateful for all the hard work that she had put in to make our house show-worthy. We would recommend Margaret Ludwiczak as a real estate agent to anyone interested in buying or selling of a house - she gets the job done! Do whatever she tells you to do in order to get your house sold - you will not regret it.

To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to recommend Maggie Ludwiczak as a Realtor.

Maggie was referred to me by a fellow Realtor in Barnegat where I was looking for a retirement home this past spring. She promptly looked over my home in the Allwood section of Clifton, came in with a stager and together, the two of them did such a tremendous job making my home presentable for sale that the property was under a contract within a week of going on the market.

Maggie and the staff at RE/MAX Village Square were highly efficient and professional throughout the entire process.

Sincerely,

To Whom It May Concern:

We would highly recommend Margaret "Maggie" Ludwiczak as a realtor for both the buying and selling of a home.

We used Maggie as our buying agent for both of our homes (Caldwell and North Caldwell, NJ). Maggie was very helpful in researching and prescreening properties, pulling together comps and helping us arrange our inspections. She worked well with the selling realtor.

When we sold our Caldwell, NJ home Maggie put a lot of effort into staging the house. She put a lot of her personal time to help us organize and straighten up and had great contacts to help us with all the detail work at an affordable price. Maggie recommended that we turn our storage basement into a playroom to show the potential of the house. With minimal expense and effort we were able to create an additional room.

Maggie did a lot of research on what was going on in the current market and helped us price accordingly to generate interest from the right perspective buyers. Maggie held a realtor open house, which generated a lot of leads and held an open house that 30+ people attended.

We recieved 4 offers on our house within 5 days of being listed and were under contract within one week! We ended up selling for $5,000 over our list price and closed within 45 days of recieving the offer. 

Maggie is always upbeat and available to answer questions. She was wonderful with our 2-year-old daughter who went to all the house showings with us. It was a real pleasure working with her and we highly recommend her.

Sincerely,

Johanna Cap and Rex Gatch

Maggie is simply outstanding. In searching for our home we went through a number of brokers, and simply put we didn't know what great service was until we met Maggie.

From start to finish, she gave expert guidance, had infinite patience, never rushed us, and took care of a million and one things for us (and when you buy a home, there really are a million and one things that come up). I simply don't think we could have done it all without her.

First she really helped educate us about the area and the market, and in showing us homes and observing our reactions she quickly understood what we valued in a home so that she never wasted our time showing us things we wouldn't like. Maggie also consistently knew more than what was on MLS so that she frequently was able to tell us about upcoming listings before they came out on MLS, giving us a fantastic edge in a very competitive market.

Then once we found our house and won the bid, Maggie's outstanding service continued all the way through the end. From overseeing inspections when we couldn't be there to taking care of unexpected last minute contract requirements to pestering various external parties to get things moving, Maggie went above and beyond to shield us from all the hassles and give us the best possible experience.

Before buying our house I had ideas of skipping the broker and doing it all myself. I'm SO glad we went with Maggie instead. My advice to anyone looking to buy or sell in the greater Montclair area would be that you can't find a better broker than Margaret "Maggie" Ludwiczak.
