What an amazing job!
I am writing this letter to express my sincere appreciation for Andrew de Blank. Right from the beginning, Andrew's dedication was outstanding. My husband and I really appreciated the fact that Andrew was always upfront and straightforward. Whatever the challenges may have been, he was overly prepared which made things, in turn, so much easier in the end.
I cannot say enough about Andrew's diligence through our entire home sale process. He provided us guidance right from the beginning, with the renovations on our home, and straight through to the end on our final closing date.
I would highly recommend Andrew! In the event of any future home purchase or sale, Andrew will be our number one choice! We were so lucky to have had this selling experience with Andrew as our guide. What an amazing job!

A real partner in selling our home
We have just completed the sale of our home in East Sandwich, MA which was listed with Andrew de Blank at Kinlin Grover. We wish to go on record and strongly recommend Andrew as our listing broker.
Andrew was extremely professional from our first meeting and his perspective on pricing our home by highlighting its unique aspects was very effective. He managed the project very tightly and communicated with us frequently as issues came up. When he had viewpoints on doing things to the house to make it more saleable, he delivered them forcibly and confidently, and he was always correct. In addition, his follow-up was consistent right through to the closing.
We felt we had a real partner in trying to sell our home and recommend him without reservation.

Andrew looks out for our best interests
I have had the opportunity and satisfaction of working successfully with Andrew de Blank as our Realtor for the purchase of a property this week in East Sandwich. The journey began a few months ago and spanned the holiday season.
I've personally witnessed Andrew's cooperative spirit, professional attitude, and caring disposition. He told us initially that he would look out for our best interests in this matter and he followed through on that promise. Andrew communicated with our attorney and helped us every step of the way, even calming us down during times in the process that were stressful and uncertain. His knowledge and advice was invaluable and he went above and beyond to be responsive and available to us. One example of this was the P&S requiring attention on Christmas Eve. Time that should have been devoted to his family was spent with us, making sure we had what we needed to proceed with the purchase and communicate with our attorney to get extension paperwork prepared correctly and timely. We can't thank him enough for this dedication.
We can finally enjoy the new home and are very excited to have finalized the process. We are very fortunate and grateful to have had such a knowledgeable and honest representative on our side. Andrew has our highest recommendation and gratitude.

Andrew is a person of real integrity, honesty, generosity, and substance
It is with great pleasure to recommend Realtor Andrew de Blank to any future clients. In fact, we would be happy to speak directly with anyone who might be in the process of choosing a real estate agent on the Cape.
When we arrived at the Kinlin Grover office, Andrew received us warmly. His straightforward, direct manner and terrific sense of humor put us at ease and helped us realize -- right from this first moment in the office -- that this was a Realtor who understood what we needed, would look out for us during negotiations, had a thorough knowledge of Massachusetts laws and the particular quirks and requirements on the Cape, and loved his work. He was fully prepared and wonderfully organized at this meeting, with multiple listings ready for us to view at the appointed times.
We found the house we sought on the first day. In fact, the house exceeded our hopes and expectations. Andrew worked carefully with us each step of the way after this exciting discovery, listening to our thoughts, carefully and clearly outlining his plan for representing us with an offer (and then subsequently a counter-offer), and always, always responding to our feelings and concerns with deep care and respect. Never once did we feel any pressure from him to take any action. In this sense, we knew that above all he put our desires, our concerns, and our needs first. This realization made the process a satisfying and even joyous one.
In the last month before closing, Andrew worked closely with us and helped us navigate a complex and challenging loan process. This assistance went significantly above and beyond his job description. During this time we found his assistance to be -- without exception -- wise, skillful, compassionate, comforting and entirely practical. His experience as an attorney, and his thorough grasp of Massachusetts' real estate laws and regulations, as well as years of experience with banking and loan officers, were invaluable during this process. We simply could not have done it without him.
Andrew is a person of real integrity, honesty, generosity, and substance. He makes the business of searching for a home -- a process that can be so fraught, so full of unexpected surprises and disappointments -- a deep and sustaining pleasure. His consistency, guidance, follow-through, attention to detail, foresight, and dedication inspired us every step of the way.
We recommend him without reservation, with joy and profound respect.

A complete professional
We are writing this recommendation to let you know how much we appreciated Andrew de Blank's help and perseverance in the sale of our home in East Sandwich. Throughout the process, Andrew was always positive, and made suggestions as to how to improve the chances of selling.
Over the years, we have bought and sold at least 9 properties, and have learned what to look for in representation, and Andrew has lived up to all of our expectations and more. Most importantly, he maintained constant communication with us about all of the showings, which is what the seller wants, to know that the agent is doing what they have been hired to do. As we have previously said, we have dealt with many real estate agents over the years, and we must say that Andrew was a complete professional throughout the entire process as opposed to the many agents who seem to be doing this for a hobby or part time job.

Our Super Agent
Selling our home was certainly an emotional experience for my husband and me. However, our super agent, Andrew de Blank, made this situation so easy. Andrew is kind and thoughtful. It was easy to discuss our various desires and concerns with him as we prepared to move on to our next adventure.
I had originally met Andrew at an Open House he was conducting for a neighbor. He so impressed me at that time that I asked for his business card so that I could hire Andrew when it was time to sell my home. He is honest and wonderful. It has been our pleasure to have him as our Broker.

Aggressive Marketing Campaign
Andrew, who is a pleasant and responsive person to work with, conducted an aggressive marketing campaign and held a number of open houses throughout the period when the house was on the market. He then skillfully guided us through every step of the sale process, and the closing took place on September 12, 2013, without a hitch of any kind.
We are glad that we chose Andrew de Blank as our Realtor, and are pleased to recommend him to others who want an experienced professional to help with the sale of their properties.
