What Ilona's Clients are Saying...

James, Phoenix

Hi Ilona.  
 
I got my check and the closing papers, so all is well on this end.  I hope all is well for you too.
 
I  just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and your well developed real estate skills and talents.
 
You did such a great job for me, I'll always be waving a flag for you.
 
Thanks so much!

Mikki, CO

Dear Ilona,
Wow, what a ride! I just wanted to take a few minutes and give you a HUGE "Thank you" for making the Short Sale process relatively painless. From the day I signed with you back in April to handle the listing of my home under a Short Sale until the day it finally closed in December, you took complete control and never wavered. You were ethical, tenacious and kept me informed at every step in the process.
 
Having to take a loss on the investment of a home is very hard to deal with. What could’ve been an extremely stressful and frustrating  process..well, wasn't because of you. Your understand and patience, thorough knowledge of the Short Sale process and attention to every detail in the paperwork made all the difference.
 
I will without hesitation, recommend you to anyone considering a Short Sale to sell their home under these difficult times. Although it is a lengthy process, I do believe it was well worth the wait as it is a much better option than a Foreclosure or Forbearance.
 
Thank you again Ilona for everything. I wish you continued success and all the best life has to offer.

Kosta & Zrinka, Phoenix

My husband and I were looking for a house to buy for over four years. We have switched number of real estate agents and appears that no one could help us. My daughter referred us to Ilona and we decided to give her a shot before giving up the house purchase all together. Ilona came to my house and set expectations and advised us about the process. Few months in we were closing on a home and I cannot explain how professional and friendly she was and guided us step by step…
THANK YOU Ilona

John & Susann, Tempe

Dear Ilona,

We want to thank you so much for all the help you gave us recently with the listing of the house.
 
Having been a realtor I realize what a demanding and fulfilling job it can be. If done correctly it is a wonderful experience and we thank you for this being a truly wonderful experience. You immediately made us comfortable and were a delight to work with. During our lifetime we have lived in three other houses. When it came time to sell these houses, we can say, in all honesty, that you put those other realtors to shame with your dedication, your energy, and your expertise....and those much appreciated very, very, frequent updates.
 
Since we didn't have a clue what was involved with a short sale, we really appreciated your "holding our hands" while you crossed every "t" and dotted every "I" and led us through the maze of paperwork connected with a short sale. When dealing with the bank and the negotiations, you never faltered, you were determined to do the best for us that was humanly possible.

Ilona, please feel free to use us as a referral at any time. Any buyer or seller will be extremely lucky to be able to work with you. We wish you the best of success. You are a true credit to the real estate profession...keep up the good work!

Our best wishes

Mikki, San Tan Valley

I can't say enough positive things about Ilona. She demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and customer service while handling my Short Sale.
 
Anyone that is lucky enough to contact Ilona to handle the listing and sale of their home will not be disappointed.

Michael, Edmonton

Thank you again for all you did to get this closed.  You went over an above as far as I'm concerned and will recommend you to everyone I know in the Phoenix area when they get ready to purchase a new home.

Al, Walnut, CA

Thanks Ilona for all your help.  This was a difficult and stressful situation for me.  Your willingness and aggressiveness to stay on top of the situation was key to getting this done.  Especially because of the non-responsive negotiator assigned to my case.  Throughout, your positive attitude that we would succeed gave me the reassurance I needed.
 
Thanks again.

Jeff, CA

I wanted to thank you for all the help you provided me over the past couple of years with my property in the City on Camelback community. Your knowledge of the market, your compassion for my
situation and your professionalism made the process of listing and short selling my property bearable.
 
When I first learned that I would have to short sell my property I was very worried due to the distance between where I live and the property itself. Your constant contact and continual optimism made the entire process a breeze.
 
Thank you again for all your help and professionalism. I will be sure to forward your name along to anyone I come across that needs
representation in your area.

Bert, Hawaii

I have never written a testimonial before but felt I had to write one for Ilona. As an investor living in Hawaii Ilona had made my investing easier because of the terrific assistance she provided.
 
Ilona helped me get my information to lenders and kept me informed during the sales.The work that she did at times was beyond the duties of being an agent and assistant to other agents.
 
I know she will do well in the coming years and be very successful.

Co, Alberta

Wow,wow. What an exciting phone call today. Thank you very much for all your efforts.
I owe you big time.

Jen, Fellow Realtor®

I like you.  You get replies and your work done.  Thank you for your prompt reply.

Steve & Deda, Perris, CA

We decided to sell our rental home in Queen Creek when we realized we could not afford to keep it any longer.

We didn't know what to expect since this was the first time we purchased a home as income property in another state other than where we live.

We've known Ilona since we purchased the house as she worked for the agent who showed it to us and we felt very comfortable with her.  We were very surprised to find out how experienced she was with short sales and acted in a very professional manner throughout the process.
 
We were surprised when the first buyer backed out and that she had a in the wings waiting if something went wrong. We were very happy on how she handled everything without missing a heartbeat as she was in direct contact with the banks negotiator and because of her previous experience, she kept us informed of everything that would come up before it happened so we could be ready to respond to the banks demands when they made their requests.
 
Anyone who is really considering on selling their home via short sale should take the time to consult with her to get a better understanding of the process is in Arizona.  Its a lot different process than in California and much quicker so you need someone like her who knows all the in and outs of the process and understands the laws governing these types of sale.
 
On a personal note, when our only son was killed in a terrible accident over three years ago, she sent flowers for him and we never expected that from someone that far away.  Truly a wonderful warm hearted person who cares about her friends and acquaintances to do such a thing, she will always be remembered!

Debra, Mesa

“Ilona helped me to find and purchase my first home (MY DREAM HOUSE). She helped me with everything I needed, every step along the way. Her passion for what she does shines through.

She rocks!"

Dear Ilona,

It is always so good to hear from you.  You do know there's a special place in our hearts for you.  When someone extends the degree of thoughtfulness and caring as you did...it is not forgotten.  We share how much you helped us when we really needed help every opportunity we get.  We know good things will come your way.

Ruben, Glendale

“I would like to express my pleasure with real estate agent Ilona Poka who represented me in my purchase of a single family home. I credit Ilona with a smooth, stress-free home buying experience. I first had reservations about the home that I ultimately purchased but Ilona's suggestions about modifications were spot on. I could not be happier with my home or my home buying experience.”

Raffi, California

Ilona's optimistic and enthusiastic personality makes her very nice and easy to work with.  She was very helpful, professional and kind throughout my short sale.  She really helped me through a tough time.  I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Shawna, Phoenix

THANK YOU FROM MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH!!! I'm trying not to cry because I'm at work!!!! I just can't believe it! It's been almost 3 years of "Sorry, can't do anything for you" and all it took was finding the right person to get the job done!!!
 
HUGE THANKS TO ILONA!!!!!
 
My 14yr old daughter has been most affected by all of this! She has been taking the rejections harder than we have. She even refused to talk about this house because every time we did, she cried because she just knew it wouldn't go thru, AGAIN. After Ilona told me we were done and will be getting the keys today, she was the first one I called. When I told her that she had a home, she started to scream and cry!!!
 
You have all made a huge impact on my entire family!!! You will never know how thankful we are!!! God bless all of you!!!!

Jaysen, Gold Canyon
