“As the old saying goes, home is where the heart is. The world of real estate in today’s economy is often without much of a heart. We ventured forth on our new purchase and the sale of our beloved home, not knowing how it would go, but we put ourselves in your hands and hoped for the best. Kristal and Ron, you are the Dynamic Duo of real estate: what a team! Thanks to both of you for — first and foremost– your honesty, which counts for so much. Plus, your attention to every detail, your tireless energy and enthusiasm, and your professional treatment for both our purchase and our sale have kept us from feeling adrift in this shaky economy. You have brought us safely ashore from this journey. We might not have “gone there”, or done it at all or as successfully without your help. We would recommend your office to anyone looking to buy or sell a house– not just a house, but a home.”

Sellers of 67R Pond Street and Buyers of 9 Lufkin Point Road, both in Essex.

“There aren’t enough nice words to lavish on you both, what an unbelievable team!… So many times you gently shone the light on a potential problem when we were blinded by the ‘wow’ of property…Kristal, you possess qualities that are rare today in the business world: integrity, kindness, and a genuine desire find the right place for your clients… You walked us through the pitfalls and gave us professional advice that helped us make intelligent decisions.”

“… I wanted to drop you a line expressing my deep appreciation for all your help in selling 48 Howard Street. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you went far beyond the normal duties of a real estate agent…and all the time maintaining a cheerful and humorous attitude. I appreciate your guiding and advising me thru the process of selling a house.”

Seller 48 Howard St, Hamilton

“…As you may know, I had previously listed my home with a number of ‘top agents’ in the area, but received no acceptable offers. Kristal had an unswerving belief in the value of my unique waterfront property and worked hard to qualify potential buyers… she consistently illustrated the advantages of my property in a very competitive market…I was truly impressed with Kristal’s talented showing techniques. She was by far the most organized and enthusiastic of all the agents I have worked with, plus she sold my home for a great price!”

“It is unusual for me to write a letter of this sort, but I wanted to publicly express my appreciation for the manner in which Kristal Pooler handled the marketing and sale of my home at 10 Ashland Avenue in Manchester….When offers were received , she negotiated my best interest in a powerful and professional way…I would not hesitate to recommend Kristal to anyone considering a real estate transaction. I am sure she will provide the same refreshingly high level of service that I received!”

Seller of Ashland Avenue, Manchester

“Thank You for helping us find our home and for making the home -buying experience a positive one. We love it here!”

Buyers – Dolliver’s Neck, Gloucester

“I have purchased two homes through Kristal Pooler and Ron Farren. With the first home Kristal deftly negotiated us through a very difficult logjam involving multiple owners disputing their claims over the house. In the second instance she negotiated an even better price than I was prepared to pay. I had total trust in her instincts and expertise throughout the selection, inspection and negotiation process. Like any top performing team, the team of Kristal Pooler and Ron Farren made the work proceed so smoothly that it looked easy. I recommend Kristal and Ron to all my friends in the market to buy or sell a home.”

Buyer of Manchester Beach House

“Dear Kristal & Ron: This letter is long overdue but as they say – Better late, than never! Thank you so much for the excellent personal service you provided to our entire family during the sale of my mother’s house at 185 Hart Street (Beverly Farms). Selling a house that we lived in for so many years was a tough decision but once you came into the scene with great ideas and advice, we knew we were in good hands, we had only to deal with the emotions, while you handled the sale and every detail with humor and professionalism. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! … In a world where so many people seem to forget the details, we were impressed that you took care of everything. Best wishes & thanks again!”

Sellers of 185 Hart St, Beverly Farms

“Thanks so much for all your assistance in helping us to buy 65 Highland Road (Boxford). Pete and I are quite ecstatic about our new home!!! If we or anyone else need a Realtor in the future, I would be more than happy to recommend the ‘Kristal Team’!! You guys are the best!!”

Buyers of 65 Highland Rd, Boxford

“We recently purchased and sold homes with Kristal Pooler and Ron Farren Throughout the process our expectations in terms of level of service, dedication, honesty and results were consistently exceeded. They spent months searching for land with my wife so she could build her dream home; ironically she found a home that was the dream prebuilt and in a splendid location. The team took over and facilitated negotiations that really made the deal on the new home happen. Kristal realistically appraised and marketed our old home; she stuck with us when we held on our price. Ron made the first and second closings seamless and painless. Having been jaded by previous transactions and quite skeptical about the whole process, we were thrilled to be working with true professionals who had our interests foremost in their minds; not just wanting to churn out a deal or generate a commission. We can wholeheartedly recommend the whole team to buyers and sellers alike enthusiastically and without any reservation. Donna would love to show you guys what she’s done so far.”

Thanks again. I will call you to say hi and update you. I will be doing some modifications prior to moving in so I’ll call you when they are complete and will show you around. Regards Dan”

Seller of 67 Apple Street, Essex

“We have never dealt with anyone–doctor, lawyer, teacher, business associate–who performed at a higher level of professionalism than the Kristal Pooler Team. Kristal is a savvy deal maker and a wise and steady counselor during an inherently stressful process. Ron Farren is relentless in his pursuit of loose ends that need tying up, and of information that will help the cause. Both are astute marketers and, all around, a pleasure to work with. What they did for us was nothing short of a miracle. We sing their praises and recommend them highly.”

Sellers of 87 Western Avenue, Essex MA

“Now that the closing funds have been deposited and the last box has been moved, we want to thank you for the excellent job you both did in successfully marketing our old house in Essex. Kristal, you laid out a specific, detailed strategy in advance. You presented us with a program that carefully timed the market debut, and then you hosted a series of events. As you promised, and to our disbelief, you had four bona-fide offers to present us at six o’clock in the evening on the eleventh day after we put the house on the market. You were in touch almost every day to report on progress. After we accepted the best offer, (in excess of asking price, by the way) Ron took over and did a wonderful job of getting us through to closing, all on time and without the slightest hassle. We recommend you to everyone we know, and wish you continued success. When I hear the ads for how people are encouraged to sell their houses themselves and save all those commission fees, it makes me shudder. Those people are fools; buying and selling properties as an amateur is sailing through an iceberg field in the fog, and for my money a fair commission is the best dollar we could spend to have the deal go through without a hitch. Many thanks again for your extraordinarily professional and friendly service.”

Sellers of 8 John Wise Avenue, Essex, MA

“I know now that we will cry when we leave the house but we will take with us all the special memories and plant them into our new garden. It all worked together at the right time and place. We will always have the highest regards for you and keep you in our hearts with so many joyful and positive memories. We thank God that you came into our lives; for finding the Williamsville Inn, and for all the possibilities that we all have to be the best that we can be. You are a great team and we always wish you the very best personally and professionally. You deserve the very best !!”

“This presentation shows a thoughtful blend of talent, creativity, a keen eye for detail, and exceptional effort. Thank you for showing off our home so nicely”

Sellers of 31 Castle View Drive, Gloucester

“Dear Kristal & Ron, There was no doubt that you were the right choice in helping us sell our home (I call it “home” because it truly was that for us for the eight years we lived there). Joe & I are very pleased with the services that you and Ron provided that enabled us to sell it in a timely, efficient, and smooth manner that suited our needs and move into our next home; and to a family who appreciates all the work we put into it and are planning on expanding further on the dream we had started there.
Your up front approach and candor in your sales process was clearly laid out for us, we were kept well informed as we went along, and neither of you minded fielding our questions — we appreciated all of that greatly. We also appreciated your level of professionalism and representation of us as your clients, and your interest in us as people — you understood that we had a put a lot of effort into the improvements over the years and preparing for its first showing was important to us — thank you for your patience…Thank you both for all you have done. When the opportunity comes for us to offer a recommendation, it will be Kristal Pooler & Ron Farren.”

Sellers Arbor Street, Wenham

“Kristal Pooler’s team is detail-oriented, motivated and above all honest group of individuals in a very crowded local marketplace. Having bought and sold several homes on the North Shore in the past 10-years, we can truly say that we have found our “agent of choice” in Team Pooler. We had always used the large brokers in the past, thinking we would get the biggest bang for the buck – far from it. Not only will Kristal hand you a 6-month written marketing plan at the outset, she will describe your home such that you’d want to buy to if you didn’t already own it and when it comes to negotiating, you’ll end up with the best deal you could get from a perspective buyer”.
“Bottom Line: If you’re kicking tires trying to find the right agent. Save yourself some headache and meet with Kristal to hear how she would list your home — you won’t be disappointed”.

Sellers of 16 Juniper St, Wenham

“Oddly enough, I selected Kristal Pooler as my broker based on her photo in the real estate section. I take portraits for a living and scrutinized many for a face with a genuine quality. My instincts were exactly correct. In fact, Kristal Pooler along with Ron Farren (husband and partner) far exceeded my expectations. Throughout the process, I felt I had the undivided attention of the team though I knew they had many listings and far larger ones. The detailed website for my particular address, advertised on the “For Sale” sign out front, was a tremendous advantage. In addition, Kristal was always accessible. She kept in communication, gauging the market and interpreting the implications for my property. While she was sensitive and responsive, she was also firm with realistic assessments. Mine was an unusual and very specific property for sale during a terrible and slipping market. In the end, I felt extremely lucky to have sold the property before the market fell further, as it did. Kristal’s skill in guiding the negotiations and final steps underscore the need for a professional in this process and a good one. I credit Kristal and Ron with bringing the sale to completion and keeping me sane at the same time. I look back and marvel that I was so clever to have selected Kristal and her team. I would eagerly sing her praises to anyone who needs encouragement to make the same smart choice.”

Seller of 32 Linebrook Rd, Ipswich

“Dear Cricket & Kristal – We’d like to thank you both very much for your assistance in achieving the impossible! We have valued your
I have been meaning to write you since the closing on Blaine.  It was again great working with you and Ron, I do appreciate all that you did for the property that it was; your very complete listing, finding a buyer and prepping the house and my mom for the closing. Everything went awesome I just wish that I had contacted you a year earlier. The selling price was big drop from were we started (assessed value) but at this point I am glad we got what we did. My mom was thrilled with the flowers! I wish you and Ron well in 09. Dan Heffernan, speaking of 17 Blaine Ave in Beverly, his mother, Mary’s home.
Thanks so much for all your help during our very emotional and hurried sale of our house. I am so thankful for your honesty and hard work that made it move so quick. I’m/we’re glad to have had you all in our court at the time. Hope Prudential Relo was good to you! We appreciate you all taking a chance on us….we’ve recommended you highly.

“Dear Kristal and Ron, Please accept this small token of our sincerest gratitude for all of your hard work to make the sale of our Wenham home a success. We cannot thank you enough!”

Sellers of 132 Topsfield Rd, Wenham

“We wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what a pleasure it was  to work with you. Throughout the process of selling and buying a home in the very tough market we were well taken care of. We believe Kristal’s  ability to set a realistic price and the firm’s willingness to  aggressively and thoroughly market our home using a variety of avenues  resulted in our receiving an acceptable offer within 30 days of listing. As our buyer’s broken on the purchase of our new home, Kristal offered  honest feedback on homes and up to date advice on the market. When we  found the house we wanted Kristal not only negotiated a price and terms  that were advantageous to us, but also followed-up on issues which could  have derailed the process. Without Kristal’s persistence and Ron’s  attention to detail the deal would not have closed.  We would, without hesitation, recommend Kristal Pooler & Associates  Coast & Country Properties, Inc. to our friends.”

Sellers of 104 Main St Wenham

“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything that you did for us on both the selling and buying side of things. Your experience, guidance and patience turned one of life’s more stressful events into a worthwhile experience. We have no doubt that we made the right decision in choosing you to sell our home and purchase our next one. At all times we felt like we had a full team representing us throughout every facet of the process. More than anything, thank you for listening…you were there for us whenever a ‘panic’ moment started to come about to talk us through it and keep us on the right path. Thank you! “
