"I came to Ilona Brown in need of a house, in a transition time in my life. She found me not a house but a home, for me and my children. She is tireless, optimistic, dependable. Ilona means what she says and delivers, and delivers quickly. She’s not a real estate agent as much as she is a partner. Highest praise, and gratitude."

"Ilona has been a long-time real estate mentor of mine and someone whose opinion on a property I'm looking at can single-handedly make or break a purchasing decision. A consummate professional, Ilona is as intelligent as she is kind, and the only person I trust to always have MY best interest in mind when buying a home. I am beyond grateful for all the work she's done and advice she's given me over the years, and will continue to work with Ilona for the foreseeable future.

The highest of recommendations!"

"Dear Ilona

Now that it’s all done and settled, I would like to write you this note with complete, total and unreserved gratitude.

I very much doubt that I would have been sitting here in my lovely home writing this note if it wasn’t for your dedication, professionalism and commitment.

Beside the technicalities, logistics, paper work and bureaucracy that such an undertaking of buying a property requires and in which you are completely fluent and proficient, you understand the real estate environment and geography in relations to the buyer needs and wants.

From the start, you promised to settle me in a place that I will like (although at a certain point in time I was about to give up because market conditions were so challenging), but you wouldn’t hear of that, thankfully.

You consistently came up with great suggestions and insights, streamed-lined the deal as a liaison between all the sides involved.

As a result I am sitting here in the very place that I was looking for, writing you this note.

I would be happy to speak and recommend your services to any potential buyer or seller.

Thank you Ilona,"

"It was through a friend's suggestion that I first met Ilona. Unbeknownst to me at the time, this was the best thing to happen to me since I decided to look for a new home.

In my younger years I purchased many properties and have had different brokers throughout my purchases.

But Ilona is a special case: She will pick you up to show you different properties and work with you until you find exactly what you are looking for.

Ilona is not pushy and you will feel very relaxed with her. She always answers the phone and handles paper work quickly.

In summary: Ilona is an excellent agent, and will be my agent from now on. Furthermore, I will make sure she becomes the agent relied upon by all my friends and family.

Very highly recommended!"

"Hi Ilona,

I am writing to wish you the very best in your new endeavor and I hope that other buyers, sellers, and investors find you quickly so they can receive the same level of professional service and care that I did last year.

In December of 2006 I was a brand-new investor who had not purchased any property out of California yet.

Ilona developed a relationship with a home builder who was just completing phase one of a development in Charlotte, North Carolina. The builder had two properties that needed to be sold by the end of 2006, and he was offering a substantial discount to a buyer who could put one or both under contract by then. Ilona researched the property and helped me do the proper due diligence, and then I bought it for $55,000 under market value.

I was very comfortable working with Ilona, and felt good knowing that she believed the project was viable. I highly recommend Ilona to represent anyone in an out-of-state real estate transaction and I look forward to future real estate deals with Sherman and Brown Real Estate Investments as one of their clients.

Thanks again Ilona and I’m sure we’ll talk soon!"
