Testimonials

Monica made it so easy for us to relocate to beautiful Wilmington, NC. Her guidance on which neighborhoods were best for our family was invaluable and she always showed us the best properties within our price range. We were so happy with her service when we purchased our first house that we have continued to use her to represent us. Monica helped us purchase land on the Cape Fear River where we built our current home and she sold our first house in less than two months. She has exemplified integrity and professionalism in all our business with her.

John Grubenmann went out of his way for us. 5 days of showings, taking pictures when we were not in town. He is just a great person who enjoys others. It went further than him just working for a commission check. He really did care about OUR needs. If only there were more agents like John Grubenmann.

Dear RE/MAX Essential, Monica Rolquin just closed 2 deals for my husband and me, as sellers and buyers, on a hot day in late July. It was Friday, and the selling part for us took 2 years, one and a half with another realty company and 6 months with Monica. She trail-blazed the process like no other professional we’ve ever worked with, despite the unnerving timing of closing 2 homes on a Friday! As disenchanted as we had become with the sale of our home, she offered smart tips to de-clutter, rearrange and invest in small upgrades. Despite our wariness, we completed our tasks, and her smart, savvy, targeted marketing plan included immediate feedback after every showing. There is no doubt in our minds that we would not have closed our home without Monica! She even brought husband Jim to help us with closing yard work in 100 degree weather, when my husband and I were exhausted from packing, moving, details and heat! Monica’s commitment to us is and has been unwavering, especially through the buying process. Her wise counsel, area knowledge and legal expertise facilitated the endeavor and we found a home within about 2 weeks! And RE/MAX Essential even threw in an extra truck for moving, at no extra cost! Monica Rolquin single-handedly- and- forever changed our perception of the realty business. We gratefully consider her our biggest advocate, and now, a friend “in the neighborhood.” I guess you could say we have a “mutual fan club,” thanks to her unwavering services that made us feel like we were her total focus, though she was as busy as ever. It takes a special skill set to follow up on all the details, sincerely listen to clients, know the market and legalities, negotiate for what she’s heard as important, all the while making it look easy and fun. In this day and age of skepticism, she restored our confidence in the real estate business, and we thank her and RE/MAX Essential mightily!

Erik was an outstanding agent. We also used him to purchase our home. We could not be any happier with the service provided. We will recommend him to all our friends and family.

Monica did a great job for us in our search for a vacation home near our family in Wilmington. Through her superb knowledge of the local real estate market and her accurate advice, we were able to buy the right property to suit our needs, at the best price. It took only a little bit more than one month for her to find the house, negotiate and close it, and all this happened while we were residing abroad in Europe. Now we are able to enjoy our lovely vacation home and are also confident that we made the right investment.
