Phillip Silverstein M.D. to Dave Ashe re: Kit Anstey
"July 11, 2011
Dear Mr. Ashe,
I am an emergency department physician and have lived in the Delaware County Area County for 30 years. We recently moved to California because of a job transfer and needless to say, we needed to sell our house.
I've learned over the years that 10% of physicians are exceptional, 10% are terrible and most fall in the middle. It's no surprise that the same is true for real estate agents.
I am so impressed with Kit Anstey of the Prudential Fox & Roach company that I felt the need to express this in writing. My wife and I interviewed several agents, and although many of them seemed more than adequate, there was something about Kit Anstey that seemed special. We recognized immediately that he was not only knowledgeable, professional and experienced but that he was also warm and friendly. He not only met our every expectation but at every level of activity exceeded them. Whether advertising the house, staging it for show, hauling away junk, auctioning off furniture, Mr. Anstey was a phone call away.
He really blew our minds when small exterior touch up painting and landscaping was handled by his people free of charge. He made us feel like we were his only client.
After the sale, he even helped us with arrangements to transport our cars and personal belongings to California, getting us in touch with companies that gave us excellent service. We put our house up for sale in July of 2009 and sold it in December. We sold it for about 10% below our asking price, but considering the fact that it was a buyer's market, I think we did well. He truly acted on our behalf and I would recommend him highly to anyone in the Delaware County or Chester County areas.
Mr. Anstey is a credit to Prudential Fox & Roach real estate company, and an assit to our community. Feel free to use this letter in any way you desire.

Michael & Laura Donnelly
Once again thank you for all your help and outstanding service. I know that word gets tossed around a great deal, but in your case it truly applies, not only were you a better agent than our NY agent, our rental agent, our first NY agent and our CT agent, but other agents including Mike C., were quick to admit they did not measure up to you. We actually feel like we hit the lottery working with you and others like Chad Parnis, who happily used your team, often told us how lucky we were to get to interact with the captain of the team.
By the way a lot of the praise below is for your team, while I only know Barbara the thanks and our appreciation very much includes their efforts. As you can read below (and please let them see it) I really think a big part of the reason for our success was the team approach which gives us a team of experts and lets you concentrate on using your contacts in the field and leveraging your knowledge to get things done.
So a big thank you to everyone!

At last...we're almost settled in, and starting to really enjoy our new home. It's been a smooth adjustment mostly because of you. We truly appreciate your expertise, help and generous heart. In complete honesty, we know that things would have been much more difficult and confusing had we not had you as our realtor. Again, many thanks for all your help.
Sincerely, Joe & Cass Longo
P.S. We know a couple people who are considering moving. We told them you are definately the 'go to man'. " back to top

"Thank you. I am so grateful for your many kindnesses during the selling of my grandmother's house. Your extraordinary list of professionals from carpenters to junk collectors turned an overwhelming chore into a manageable task. And your personal oversight permitted me to sleep well, knowing that if the blizzard materialized, I had a pair of hands in town to take care of the house! Thank you! - Marty West" back to top

This comes with sincere gratitude for the kindness you have shown. I want you to know how much I appreciate you being so gracious and taking so much time helping Andrea search and purchase her new home. I was so relieved to know she had a very kind and knowledgable woman guiding her. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"The Kit Anstey Team was great. His approach for selling our home was high tech and personal at the same time. He advertised well and he routinely talked to us to make our house sell. There were 5 townhomes on our street for sale and ours stood out from the rest. " back to top

Settling in and enjoying Memphis.
Thought you might enjoy the enclosed. You and the 'experience' are not mentioned directly because I am trying to forget about our water intrusion nightmare. (Yes, it still does wake me up at night). But you were the part of the story that we are most thankful for. Couldn't have done it without you!
Have a great holiday!

Rick Parsons to Kit Anstey
Well, I survived another move and now find that I actually have a moment to sit and reflect.
Kit, I have now purchased and/or sold 7 houses through you over the past 4 years. Through each of these experiences, my interactions with you have been pleasant-effective-efficient and very satisfying. Kit, you are clearly an extremely competent and caring professional. I personally can not tell you how gratifying it is to work with someone who is not only extremely competent...but manifests such a high standard of ethical practice. Your willingness to assist with all of the fine details-ranging from driveways...to clean up...has made our move all that much less stressful. But I am sure others have pointed out the excellence of your service. What I wanted to do was take time not simply to formally state that Kit Anstey is an extremely competent professional Realtor...but, to make it clear that in addition, Kit Anstey is truly a good person.
I know that last comment could be read a number of ways...but I mean it. Kit, you gave ample evidence of your heartfelt concern for Ginny and I, and I saw how you extended that real sense of care to our neighbors, the Peca's, even when they were not one of your clients. Your attention to the kids (Mimi in particular) was clearly genuine and made them feel part of this major endeavor. Further your untiring availability and rapid response to each of my ridiculous concerns...went well beyond 'good business sense'...and landed clearly in the region of good person qualities.
I know you don't need or necessarily seek accolades or commendations - but I simply wanted to let you know that your work is appreciated...and more so...your style, your values and your person are truly valued.
...We would all like to Thank You and your team for the excellent service assisting us in our relocation efforts. The professional caring service you provided really helped to minimize the stress associated with moving cross country! I hope all is well with you and your team!

My name is Paul Blane. I wrote you an e mail several months describing how impressed I was with Cleo Elkinton well after working with her for a period of 3 plus months my appreciation for her has only grown. We were successful in our relocation endeavors in large part due to Cleo's work. She never failed to go above and beyond in any aspect of this transaction. Helping me line up everything from carpet replacement to removal of items I did not want. During the negotiation of the sale of this property of all the people involved Cleo was the one who kept the momentum moving in the right direction (the realtor on the sell side did not have control of her client so Cleo realy had to control both sides of the deal). Over the course of my adult life I have bought and sold several homes with mixed feelings about the process every time except for this last purchase. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Cleo worked tirelessly to he l! p my family not only find the right home and get the best deal but make the entire 2000 mile relocation go as smooth as possible. Should I have any future real estate transactions in the area I can assure you that they will be handled by Cleo Elkinton.
My wife and I remain in awe of you and the effort you put in to marketing our home in Glenmoore, EVEN BEFORE YOU HAD A LISTING FROM US. When the house went under contract less than two hours before the previous listing contract with Remax was to expire, we were embarrassed to have to call you since you had already invested in promotional materials and media advertising of our property in order to mot miss a weekend of activity. When you refused to be compensated for your expense, and did so very graciously, we concluded that you were the realtor we would choose for any future home sales or purchases in the Chester County area.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who asks us about who to select in buying or selling a home. Many, many thanks for all you were willing to do for us-even though the contract we both expected to expire did not before the house was sold.
With this letter comes our very best wishes and much gratitude.
