Our landlady at the time was trying to sell the house we were renting, and Shalu was one of several realtors who had come by to show the house. Shalu was quite friendly and extremely respectful of us as tenants. Unlike her peers, she even asked where we were moving and whether we needed help finding a rental in Seattle. We gladly took her up on her offer of a referral, which helped us to secure a place for our move. As chance would have it, we received job offers back in Princeton in the Spring of 2016. Out of the blue, Shalu sent us a note to ask how we were doing in Seattle. We told her that we were in fact moving back to Princeton and that we would be buying a house this time. Shalu quickly got to work in asking us for details about the kind of house we would like, etc., and by the time that we were ready to look at houses, Shalu had assembled a variety of houses that fit our criteria. Shalu knows the Central New Jersey housing market inside and out. She has an excellent eye for detail when viewing houses, has reliable contacts with lawyers and contractors, and is a skillful negotiator. She is also extremely responsive with regard to messages and prompt in terms of preparing documents. We had settled on our first pick during the few days in which we had come to look at houses and had our offer accepted almost right away. From inspection to closing, the entire purchase process went extremely smoothly. Even after the purchase concluded, Shalu continues to give us advice about contractors and local events. She is a committed advocate for green living and an all around wonderful person. Buying a house can be a stressful process, but Shalu made the whole process as simple as could be. She has become a friend. We're happy to give her our strongest recommendation. Less
She helped us with the sale our home, which was sold under 2 weeks. She provided us great advice and help at every stage of this home sale process, which is an elaborate and sometimes daunting process. She completely managed all risks to the transaction to see it through to its completion. To us, she is 'the closer' , when it comes to the real estate transactions. I would highly recommend Shalu to any prospective seller/buyer.
