Hannelore Kaplan is a true pro. She is honest, trustworthy, hard-working and has the experience to give great advice. I recommend her without any reservations. We knew right away that we were with the best broker in town and she never let us down.
GREENWICH CT BUYER & SELLER
I worked with Hannelore Kaplan for over a year on finding a new house and selling my old house. Before this I had always sold a house easily and always wondered why real estate agents made so much money for what seemed like little work. Well, Hannelore changed my mind on that idea!! She worked incredibly hard for over a year. She did a great job in advising me on how to set up the house to be sold. It looked great and she did a very professional job of showing it to many prospective buyers. She held a number of open houses and was very proactive in following up with potential buyers. The weak housing market was what prevented the house from being sold sooner. Hannelore worked very hard and did a great job.
On the buy side, Hannelore showed me every house in my price range and we had a fun time seeing all the houses. Even though it was very time consuming, she made it fun and was always happy to show me whatever houses I wanted to see. She was very good in assessing what needed to be done in the houses we looked at and how much it would cost. She was very knowledgeable on the market. I ended up finding the perfect house!
I would recommend Hannelore highly - she's very professional, hard working, knowledgeable and fun to work with.

Dear Bill Raveis,
I want to express my overwhelming satisfaction with your agent, Hannelore Kaplan. We have had the good fortune to work with Hannelore on both the selling and recently the purchasing side on two properties in the past year and a half.
My husband Paul and I recognize that we are very particular clients with strong opinions concerning real estate. Our time is valuable, and our investments in real estate are a personal and financial factor in our lives that we do not take lightly. We therefore have high expectations for any agent that represents us.
The first and foremost thought that comes to my mind in describing Hannelore's real estate savvy is her courageous ambition to step outside the real estate conventional box and not be afraid to use her instinctive perspective to facilitate clever property transactions. Hannelore, serving as listing agent for our custom home in New Canaan, priced the property 10% above what a competitive agency had suggested as the absolute maximum listing price. The house sold for that asking price in just two days. In setting the price, Hannelore did significant analytical research, whereas the other agency simply looked at comps, many of which had been on the market for over 120 days. Hannelore knew there was an intangible aesthetic element to our home that simply could not be valued by looking at the available comparables.
Recently, Hannelore represented us in the purchase of a property that was not listed on the MLS. This was a private transaction, in which Hannelore initially contacted the sellers by making a cold call on a house located on our favorite street in town. She negotiated the deal and we got our initial asking price and preferred closing date!
Hannelore Kaplan is an extraordinary real estate agent and we want to acknowledge her talent, ambition, and professionalism.

We met Hannelore at an open house and decided then she was our Agent. Working with Hannelore was so easy from her local knowledge and negotiating skills to her thorough follow up after our close to make sure all went well. We almost decided to postpone our search but Hannelore coached us through the process and we found our new house. I would definitely work with Hannelore again.

Hannelore has represented me in two transactions, and I definitely plan to use her in the future. She is hard-working and pays attention to the details. She's also knowledgeable, responsive, and (pleasantly) aggressive.

I highly recommend Hannelore. I just bought a house with her and was very impressed by her professionalism, her business skills and her determination in finding us a home. She is very approachable and knowledgeable and always has the right question to ask the from the seller to the mortgage broker, or house inspection, building department? All of those, saved us from a lot of potential troubles down the road. She was also a great negotiator which helped us save some money. She did a lot of the pre-work for us and was the one sending us links to houses she thought would be most appropriate for our needs. In the end, she was able to find us the house of our dream. Thank You Hannelore

"Thank you both so much for everything.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about our agent Wendy and Hannelores incredible team! Wendy spent months with my family making certain that the rental we picked, felt like home to us. She started right away with us in our search when other agents had told us we were starting too early for our move in!
As previous homeowners ourselves, we were weary that a rental would never really feel like home. Wendy showed us that even though it was a rental, it should still feel like our home. She assured us every step of the way that she was invested in finding us somewhere we would love. She worked tirelessly and had our needs as her first priority. She weighed pros and cons with us, compared listings and tenant responsibilities, and made us aware of unforeseen responsibilities of a renter, so there would be no unforeseen surprises! From finding our home to negotiating the lease, she was meticulous and demanded clarifity. When we are ready to buy our second home, I cant wait to work with Wendy and Hannelore again! My family and I are so grateful! Wendy was a wonderful person to take an adventure with!"
