    Our family initially started looking at homes in the North Plainfield area nearly 2 years ago. At first, our interest was mild. We wanted to learn more about the area, as we knew some about the neighborhoods, etc. but not necessarily a whole lot about the details of the area. In looking through the various homes available at the time, we ran across one that was listed by Becky O’Neill. We wanted to see the home, but were hesitant to call and inquire about a showing, in that we weren’t planning on moving at that time, and secondarily didn’t want to necessarily contact a realtor and have them bug us all of the time trying to make a sale. Ultimately, we wanted to see the home, and the area, so we called Becky, which as it turns out, was a good move on our part. After meeting with Becky, we decided to list our home in Naperville with her, and also utilize her as our buyer’s agent in the North Plainfield area in the spring of 2007. As most people know, over the last year or two, the real estate market has been, at best “challenging”. Our experience in selling our home would fit into that category. For months we had dozens of showings, with very good feedback, but no firm offers came our way over the summer. With the market being the way it was, it just didn’t happen last year. We were fortunate in two ways though…first, personally we didn’t have to move, although after looking through homes in the area, and meeting a number of people, we wanted to. Secondly, we felt comfortable with Becky guiding us through the process. Even with the frustrating months of showing our old house (keeping it clean, being displaced for hours every weekend through the summer during showings, etc) she was there to calm us and keep us positive, as well as keep the flow of potential buyers coming through. Eventually, we decided to postpone this process, and try again in 2008. We did put it back on the market right after the holidays this year, and again wanted to continue to work with Becky. Even with the market still being “challenging” our fortunes were much better, again, we had a number of showings (30+ in a month), which ultimately led to a handful of 2nd showings, and a contract in 37 days. During this whole process, we were also touring homes with Becky in the North Plainfield area so when we did get a contract, we would be able to sell and buy somewhat simultaneously. Ironically, the home that we purchased in Kensington Club is 2 homes away from the initially home that we inquired with her about in 2006. This was the 3rd sale / purchase that our family has gone through since becoming a family. With the exception of the summer of 2007 being “challenging” because of the market conditions, the home selling / buying experience that we had using Becky O’Neill, and her staff was the best that we’ve gone through. From Becky, to her staff, to some of the other professionals that she introduced us to (inspector, attorney) everything was done professionally, and in a high quality way. We would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for a real estate agent in the area.” – The Kielczewski Family

    I was ecstatic to have so much activity on my home in such a short time! Putting my home on the market around the holidays was a bit scary, however, I was lucky to have within a day, numerous showings and within a day 2 offers. Becky and her team are great to work with! Becky sold me this home three years ago and then helped with the purchase of another in October. I have great respect for her and her team! Great communication and always there when needed.

    We enlisted the help of Becky and team for buying and selling and couldn’t be happier with our decision. From the initial meeting to closing, Becky was extremely helpful, highly motivated, and very professional. She clearly communicated to us how the market was, what we could do to improve the home, and the best plan to sell our home for top dollar and quickly. The team moved quickly and helped us get the house on the market and under contract on the first day! When purchasing our next home, Becky was amazing at helping us negotiate and always looking out for our best interest. She and the team were excellent at communicating everything throughout the buying and selling process to make the entire process as smooth as possible. We highly recommend the Becky O’Neill team for anyone looking to sell their current home or buy a new home. We think we found our “forever home”, but if not, we will call Becky if we need to move again!

    When my husband and I bought our house we were new to the process and very nervous. I found a mortgage company online and started looking at houses on Zillow.

    The first interesting house was being represented by Karen Cowie at Becky O’Neill Power Home Selling Team at RE/MAX Gold. I called the number and set up my first house viewing. Karen was so happy and completely supportive during the viewing process. She always had good questions to help us focus on what we really wanted. We never once felt pressured or that she didn’t want to be there. She stuck with us and showed us ever house, even going so far as to see nine houses in one day! Her positivity never wavered.

    Once we found our future home, we started hitting problems. Our mortgage company was not on top of things. They were located in another city and kept having problems with the paperwork. We were terrified we were going to lose our house. The closing date was pushed back three times. If it hadn’t been for the awesome team at Becky O’Neill’s we would have lost our home. They quickly got in touch with their own mortgage partners and came up with a plan. Karen was a problem-solving expert! Everything finally went through because Karen and her colleagues made it happen.

    If I had it to do over again, I would go straight back to Becky O’Neill’s company and have them set up the mortgage company. Don’t go with someone you can’t speak to face-to-face. Trust your realtor! Karen never steered us wrong and they all went out of their way to make sure we had a beautiful home. I highly recommend them.

    Becky and her team are FANTASTIC. They helped us sell our old home and buy our new one. Becky really knows the St. Louis market– she did a lot of research on the area where we were selling, and she was always in the know about houses coming available in the area we were looking to buy. Nicole did a great job marketing our house to sell, and Karen and Brian hosted two successful open houses. Denise was super patient with all of my questions about the contract paperwork and inspection process. The entire team is responsive and professional, and we have been recommending them to friends looking to buy and sell. Overall we were very happy!

    Karen was absolutely amazing to work with. Everyone on Becky’s team was easy to work with and so professional. Karen recommended a finance team and they were so awesome and made that process so easy. I would/will recommend Karen to everyone I know looking for a house!

    Becky’s team assisted me with purchasing a short sale home. Karen was very prompt in responding to me (as was the whole team once we got closer to closing date). If she didn’t know the answer, she would find out very quickly and call me back. As a consumer, I really appreciated the honesty of her and the whole Becky O’Neill team. I definitely highly recommend them and would use them in listing or purchasing a home. Thank you to all for your help and integrity, it really was a please purchasing my home with you!

    Becky has assembled a great team of professionals who know the real estate business.  We received routine updates on marketing and sales efforts, and buyer feedback was provided regularly.  In the end, she orchestrated the successful sale of our mother’s home.

    “The way we chose you was because of our neighbor, Karen Cowie, who we are good friends with works on your team. So, we got the conversation started. I like working with you because you came in and you gave us some ideas for some upgrades to the house which wouldn’t be terrible but definitely made a difference and the team was awesome to work with, very responsive.” – Al Wilton

    “I was a little unsure about working with an agent with a team because in our buying experience we worked with one person. So I was a little unsure but now that it is all done, I saw exactly why it is so efficient. So we worked with Karen on the open house and Nicole was talking with us almost every day until we got the offer. And then from that point, Denise took over and she contacted me whenever she needed to. She called, texted, emailed and it was so smooth. Like you said, everybody had their job to do and they knew what to do and they were good at that. It made the process so easy.” – Rhonda Wilton

    Becky and her whole team were wonderful from start to finish. As a first-time home buyer, I didn’t know anything about the process. Becky was very patient and helpful as I first became interested, organized my finances, and decided to close on the condo. When I was unsure about the lender’s terms, Becky did not hesitate in giving me other options and feedback about a typical experience. I highly recommend reaching out to Becky for any buyer.
