Eadie and Albert Brunner were Rye residents for almost 30 years when they decided to put their home on the market. They planned to relocate south to Charleston, South Carolina, prompted by Albert retiring from his position managing Manursing Island Club on Rye’s Sound Shore.
When it came to hiring a real estate agent the couple didn’t consider hiring anyone other than Fiona. They knew her through their children being friends and from her stellar reputation in the Rye real estate community.
“When I saw a photo of her fixing a window and watering flowers at her clients’ homes on social media, I was so impressed with her attention to detail. I thought it was brilliant,” explained Eadie.
They met Fiona in June 2021 at their home to discuss listing their property. At the time, their three children had all moved home due to the pandemic and the combined contents of their separate apartments were now taking up space in their home.
“Fiona had a vision. She saw through the clutter and could tell it was a great space despite the chaos. She recommended organizers that we could hire and days later she came to help with the cleanup. It was so helpful to have her take point because it was an emotional process for us.”
What really stood out to them was the solid team of trusted professionals in Fiona’s network and how she worked with them on the couple’s behalf. The preparation took time, but Fiona kept the couple calm and positive during the process. “She helped us to see the end result. Fiona arranged for us to have help with cleaning, minor updates and repairs, and staging it to make it buyer-ready.”
The ongoing pandemic and dynamic housing market concerned Eadie and Albert, who were afraid they missed the peak season. Yet Fiona’s supportive approach assured them that there were plenty of buyers still out there. They were thrilled to see the home receive an accepted offer in 24 hours, and go into contract in 72 hours.
“All the stress was alleviated in that sale. Fiona is very dedicated to her job and her team is fantastic. They communicated so well and that made it seamless for us. I would 100% recommend Fiona to others.”
