What Her Peers Are Saying…

Mary Dean is a fabulous professional to work with!

One of the Best Realtors I’ve Had a Transaction With!

Mary Dean gets the job done!  She makes the transaction very smooth!

Samuel Regalbuto - Buyer

Wonder Woman…The Ultimate Hero

Mary Dean is the sweetest, kindest, most knowledgable, well connected realtor we have ever met.  We first met Mary Dean when we were looking at a house and our realtor was late.  She showed us the house explaining all it's features, the area, what could be done.  It was like she lived in the house herself.  Her whole demeanor is what really resonated with us.  When we started looking for houses again, we decided we wanted to work with Mary Dean and I wrote her an email to see if she was taking any new clients.  She took us right in and could't believe she made such an impression.  She should know that her presence is unforgettable in such a good way.  Mary Dean stuck wit hus for over a year and a half to help us find our perfect home in order to sell the one we had.  She worked through some difficult situations and was able to get us in touch with the best people.  She eventually found us our perfect place and within the same week sold the house we were in.  During this time I was 9 months pregnant and she made the process seamless.  She came for the inspections (watching our cats) while we were at work.  She made everything ready to sign before my due date.  I can't recommend her enough.  She really was our wonder woman.  She made things happen, she was always has such good contacts.  She gives back to the community.  She even made my son crochet hats and donated a few to the NICU in his name.  You won't find anyone else like her.  She is amazing.

Mary Dean always goes above and beyond for buyers and sellers.  I have had a few deals with her on both ends and I really couldn't ask for more.

Well done, Rich!

Thank you, Rich Warner for managing the sale of our farmland. His experience in farmland sales and auctions gave him insight to the financial conditions affecting farmers and therefore sales in the area. When sales were down, he explained those conditions to us in detailed, but understandable terms. As offers came in, he was able to help us through the negotiating process which was particularly complex because four individuals jointly owned the property and all were out-of-state.

Sincerely,

I appreciate your support & guidance-not nagging lol.

Thank you to both you & Rich for providing us a qualified buyer, prompt service & remote support.

Dear Mr. Warner,

Just want to give a big shout out to Mary Dean. She is by far the best Realtor I have ever worked with. She goes above and beyond from the sale of my home and the purchase of my next home. Walked me thru every with ease. Selling and finding the right home in a timely matter is very stressful. She was there every step of the way. I have used Mary in the past, and she has always been very professional as usual. Thank You Mary Dean

I recently sold my farm in Mannington Twp for the full listing price. From the moment I signed the listing agreement with Rich Warner at Warner Real Estate & Auction I knew I was in good hands. His eagerness to understand our operation and the assets involved was quite obvious. This enabled Rich to develop the correct marketing plan. His attention to detail was admirable. Rich communicated with me on a regular basis on prospective buyers and eventually he secured a strong buyer who was able to pay our full listing price. I am so thankful for his efforts.

Dear Mr. Warner

I don't really have time to write emails but I needed to tell you what a great realtor Mary Dean is, she not only goes an extra step she goes to steps.  She does a lot of extra paperwork to help with the buyers the other realtors don't do.  She tries to saving us our money and get them the best price.  I have dealt with a couple dozen realtors in the last 20 years and I have never had the pleasure of dealing with such a great person or realtor.  She is so thorough, I placed several properties up for sale with Mary and she keeps me so informed and answers any questions so rapidly.  It's almost unbelievable how professional she is.  You are lucky to have such an associate working with you.

It is my pleasure to recommend Mary Dean as a real estate agent to anyone looking to buy or sell property.  I found Mary to be a highly attentive agent in regards to selling my property. Her knowledge of the real estate industry is astounding. Not only was she extremely professional, but more importantly to me she took on a personal interest in my needs as well. All phone calls and messages were returned immediately even on off hours.

Closing to the property was completed without a single problem. Thanks to Sarah Dean for her impeccable accurateness of putting together all necessary documents.

I had the highest level of confidence in Mary through the entire process. If anyone is looking to buy or sell a house, Mary is the best in the business in my opinion.

Good afternoon,

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated how hard Mary Dean worked to help me get my property sold in Greenwich. I couldn’t have asked for anyone more knowledgeable or eager to get the job done. She made the whole process painless!

To Whom it May Concern,

I am the executor of my father's estate and had four pieces of property that I had to sell in the Salem area. I was referred to Rich Warner by a local Realtor that I am friends with. The sale of the properties was performed with ease and without the local knowledge that Rich brings would have been a drawn out affair. His pricing and valuation was spot on and I could not have been happier with the results. If you have property or farms that you need to sell Rich Warner will get the job done.

Thanks again Rich,

Rich,

I want to thank you for all of your help with the farm I purchased.  You could not have been more helpful.  I'm sure I asked a lot of crazy questions and you answered them all promptly.  We had many obstacles to overcome with an out of state seller and the conditions of Covid, but everything went pretty smoothly.  

Your knowledge of contacts such as lawyers, lenders, appraisers, title company and of course all the different inspectors I had to contact was a great help.  

I was also impressed with how you fought for your client (seller) to honor her wishes as things were negotiated.  Very, very nice job Rich.

Regards,

My husband and I purchased our first home 2019. We gave our agent a wish list at our first meeting and hoped we could get most of the things we wanted in a home. We could not have been happier with our agent Ken Coles. He was professional, honest, and kept us informed with timely updates. We encouraged his expert feedback on the homes we visited. He was very accommodating to show us homes on the weekend because we had a Mon-Fri work schedule. He never rushed us to decide but took his time to make sure we found our perfect home. After looking at 20+ homes over several months, we found a little gem and fell in love. He talked to us about a reasonable offer based on the location and comps in the area, and then guided us through the negotiation process and closing. I would 100% recommend Ken to anyone looking for a new home.

I have worked with a lot of real estate agents and brokers, but Rich Warner is head and shoulders above the rest. His professionalism, friendly demeanor, and depth of real estate law and marketing make his firm one of the best in South Jersey.
I had an extremely complex real estate transaction involving a 90+ year old building, but because of Rich’s many years of experience, and his pleasant hand-holding philosophy, he took a major problem and turned it into a disciplined well managed project.
By the way, we also received a great price for the property.

Good luck Rich,

Words could not begin to express the gratefulness that I have for your dealing with the matter of selling my farm.  Truthfully, I don't think anyone else would have hung in there as long as you and the prospective buyer did.   Concerning  the problems that I had with my tenant, you were a trooper and went above and beyond the duties of a realtor. I think in awe of the responsibility that you took on, being that I lived out of state and unable to deal with the situation that had occurred at my property but you never faltered. You dealt with it as if it were your own and did whatever had to be done to secure the property. (Break ins and theft) matters.  You dealt with police matters, the whole bit. You were a God send, believe me.    If i were there in NJ, I would praise you to every person that I met.  That's how thankful I am to you.  I have sold quite a few houses in my day, and believe me, I rate you over and beyond a 10. I know you will continue to be an over the top realtor in your field and those future clients will be so lucky to have you on their side.  They don't come any better than you and your company.  Many many thanks again to you Rich.

May God Bless  you and yours,

When I decided to sell the farm, I chose Rich Warner because I thought he had the most respected reputation and local knowledge in marketing an agricultural property. He prepared a detailed marketing plan and was very honest in what he saw as the hurdles and advantages to selling this particular property. Throughout the process, Rich was always available to promptly answer questions, provide guidance, and arrange for services once under contract. I am grateful for all that he did to get my farm to settlement.

Hi Rich,

Just wanted to put in a good word for Mary Dean.  Mary did an outstanding job in getting our father’s house sold in an efficient and personable manner.  This was particularly challenging since both my sister and I live outside of Bridgeton (she in Reno and I outside of Boston) and our father was in assisted living in Millville.  In addition, the pandemic proved to add an additional layer of complexity to getting the house cleaned up and personal possessions properly handled.  Two sheds full of equipment were also on the premises!  Hard enough if we lived in the area, but without local help via friends and neighbors, this would never have happened in as quick a timeframe.  The logistics in getting the house cleared, cleaned, and ready was an enormous nail-biting task spread over the prior months.  Mary was able to handle all of this whirlwind of activities calmly and professionally and with an air of confidence that gave us in turn a feeling of confidence as well, keeping us informed on what needed to get done and in a timely fashion.  Mary’s network proved invaluable in getting the house spruced up for showing and all along the sales process.   We were blown away when four offers came in the very first day of showing.  Mary’s advice as our agent was spot-on and insightful.  We would certainly recommend her to other potential sellers in the area.  Feel free to use us as references with respect to Mary. 

Thanks again.    All the best, Dana Ono

Hello Mrs. Dean,

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting  you about a year ago looking at one of the houses you were showing in Greenwhich. We really appreciated your knowledge not only about the house but also many other aspects of homeowning. We also really enjoyed your personality and just how welcoming you were and we have really thought you to be one of the best realtors we have ever met. We are casually looking for our forever home, as we are trying to make the best decisions based on location, cost, and of course the amenities of what the house currently has or doesn't have. We are no longer working with our previous realtor and would like to know if you would be interested in being our agent?

Hopewell Township, NJ

I would like to share my experience with Warner Real Estate and Rich Warner himself.  When I first contacted Warner to look at selling my Parents Farm until the settlement they were very helpful and understanding and caring.   Rich explained everything and was never too busy to answer my questions and explain in a way that we understood.   Rich told us it could take 1 month to 4 years to sell the property.   He came up with a figure based upon his knowledge and recent sales and within a week of putting the farm on the market we had an offer and a signed contract.    Rich and his team guided us through all the paperwork and settlement cost and worked closely with the buying agent.   It truly was a great experience and worry free.  I would recommend Warner Real Estate agency to anyone that was selling or buying a farm.

Dear Rich,

Please accept this letter in gratitude for your work towards the successful auction of the former Woolwich Township Municipal Building, conducted on April 23, 2010.

From the moment that we met, I had a comfort level unlike any other that I have had in similar business dealings. I was truly amazed at the way in which Warner Real Estate took charge of the process, and made sure that l was properly informed each step of the way. You truly took a complicated process and made it seem easy and effortless. And most appreciated, was the fact that the process took the burden off of me.

I can honestly say that through the auction process, Woolwich Township was able to market its property to a wider variety of potential bidders, and ultimately achieve a more profitable sale. The professionalism and assistance of your staff was also remarkable. I would specifically like to mention Andrew Ware, whose help and guidance throughout the process was greatly appreciated.

In closing, I thank you once again for your dedicated and friendly service and for helping woolwich Township to equitably transact the sale of this property in such an efficient and professional manner.

Very truly yours,

Dear Rich,
Please forgive my tardiness in writing as Patty and I have been very busy.

I wanted to thank you for your outstanding professionalism in the auction of our farm.
You sat and spoke with us on several occasions and each time were truthful and did not over estimate the value of our farm. You gave us a time line for the sale and stuck to it. You gave us options for selling and helped us pick the most prudent.

All in all you restored my faith in realtors because you did what you said you were going to do and got it done. Thank you again for helping us sell a difficult piece of property.

Gratefully,
Mark & Patty West

Re: Warner Real Estate and Auction Company

I am writing to recommend Warner Real Estate and Auction Company to anyone with a property to sell in these difficult economic times. This company, and its leader, Richard Warner, went well above and beyond their original agreement with me to sell my property in Cape May County. Their marketing was thorough and excellent but, above all, the attitude expressed by the staff and Rich was incredible.

Although I never met any of the staff or Rich in person, since I had already moved out of New Jersey when I contracted with them, I felt as if I was being taken care of by a longtime family friend. I have no hesitation in recommending them knowing that they will do everything in their power to sell a property.

I wish all of them, and you, a prospective seller, well.

Sincerely,
Katrina Chamberlin

Thank you for helping The First National Bank of Elmer, Executor for an Estate, market, and sell six (6) parcels of real estate located in Pittsgrove Township and Upper Deerfield Township.

First Choice Bank

Dear Rich:

Just a short note of thanks for all your assistance and helpfulness in getting our Washington Township property sold. As we had discussed, this property presented a number of unique challenges, and we had experienced a great deal of frustration with our prior broker and their lack of success in attracting potential buyers.

This was also our first experience with an auction of real property, and we were quite pleased with the outcome. You provided me with the necessary insight into the auction process that allowed me to give management here at the bank a clear picture of the risks and rewards associated with the auction process. The planning process for the auction and the marketing effort put forth by your team was very impressive.

If we have occasion to sell real property in the southern New Jersey area in the future, it will fully be my intention to look to Warner Real Estate to get the job done right the first time.

I wish you all good luck in the future and look forward to working with you again.

Sincerely,

To Whom It May Concern:

I am happy to provide a reference for the Warner Real Estate & Auction Company, Inc., a company that I have worked with for about one year’s time. I've worked directly with Richard G. Warner and his staff finding them all to be respectable and knowledgeable. I was also highly impressed with the level of integrity and skill set with all decisions.

From the early on conversations of our company discussing the idea of holding an auction, Warner Real Estate & Auction Company, Inc has always been dependable, straightforward and honest. Auction fees were reasonable, and they were always forthright with all costs and processes. Our auction consisted of three properties which all sold at our event. I'm happy to recommend them to anyone who is in the process on selecting an auction firm to do business with. My results were on target from day one and the company fulfilled all of my expectations. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Sincerely,

Bacon’s Manor House

Patricia Lane

Re: Bacon's Manor House

Dear Rich:

We wanted to again commend you on your outstanding service in selling our property in Greenwich. We knew the house could be a difficult sale, given that it was a large colonial estate that we were seeking to sell during the great recession. but you and your company made the entire process run incredibly smoothly for us.

From the outset when we discussed your marketing strategy, we knew that your company would tap every possible lead to find a buyer. You used social media and websites to expand our base far beyond the general local advertising route that other realtors utilize. You kept us up to date nearly daily as we moved through your time line to the sale, double checking with all that expressed interest in the property, maintaining communication with leads and eventually finding us a potential buyer. We appreciate the way you took charge in ordering the title, home inspections and termite reports early on so that there would be no delays once we found an interested buyer and in that fashion we had answers to all of their questions before they even bid, thereby lessening the possibility that they would lose interest or default since they already had all the relevant details.

We signed a contract with the buyers two days before Hurricane Sandy struck New Jersey. The buyers were over a hundred miles north in Long Island and we were hundreds of miles away in Virginia but you reached out to us repeatedly as we assessed our, thankfully, small amount of damage and also to the buyers who were more directly in the path to keep the deal on track.

Then we came to the buyer financing problems. A series of unexpected difficulties arose that left the buyers unable to close by the deadline in the contract. You spent an inordinate amount of time going back and forth between all of us as we frantically tried to close the deal before the end of the year and you went above and beyond in keeping both sides working toward closing, proposing new solutions and ideas. I think that between the buyers, sellers and you, we must have exchanged well over a hundred e-mails just about closing. But you were always on top of it with all of us and the title company; always with a friendly demeanor and ever patient manner while never complaining about all the extra work that was required every time we had to change the closing date.

Mark has lived in many, many places across America and Europe over his years as his legal or writing career often require him to move around. He has never experienced such an efficient and detail oriented real estate relationship as he has with Warner Realty. We both appreciate everything you undertook for us and will be highly recommending you to our family and friends in your area.

With utmost gratitude,

Patricia Erdner Lane

Warner Real Estate Came with a Plan and a Process to Redevelop Gloucester City’s Future

Dear Rich,

I want to thank Warner Real Estate and Auction, you and your excellent staff for the great effort that was put forth to make Gloucester City's first redevelopment online auction a success.

Since 2008, with the collapse of the housing market in the country, small cities and communities have been faced to deal with vacant, abandoned homes and properties, decreasing tax ratable and making it more difficult for communities to operate. Warner Real Estate and Auction came into Gloucester City with a plan and process to help turn that around.

I found the process well thought out, planned and implemented in the most professional, dependable and concise manner. The flexibility of your operation prior to going online was above reproach, even when last minute changes could have been disastrous, you came forth and quickly resolved the situation. That is what a professional does and I am very proud that the City of Gloucester chose Warner Real Estate and Auction to help in the redevelopment of Gloucester City's future.

In closing, it was my pleasure to meet you, work with you and your professional staff, and I will certainly highly recommend utilizing Warner Real Estate and Auction in the future.

Thank you once again.

Most Sincerely,

Howard Clark
