Although I did not ultimately buy or rent another place, it was great to deal with Cheryl. She cares about people and knows a great deal about the local market. Plus, she is willing to spend a great deal of time getting to understand her prospect.

When my husband and I hired Cheryl Siko, one of the associates of the The Mavins Group, I was surprised to find out that I also got the second person, Susan Devaney, who worked on my case together with the associate. Both Susan and Cheryl oversaw the daily progress of my case, on call 24x7, and communicated with me with detailed information of status and issues almost every day. They considered and respected your interests and concerns very seriously. I cannot thank Susan enough for her help and guideline.

The most impressive part is that Susan knows how to negotiate with other parties, when to press buttons, make decisions, to then finally get the things done. Not all real estate transactions run smoothly. Unexpected events may happen one by one. I am lucky to have Susan and her team to work together to overcome challenges and find solutions.

Some people may want to do real estate transactions without agents and attorneys. Well, it may or may not work. I believe majority of ordinary people should hire best professionals like Susan and Cheryl. Government regulations and/or mortgage applications are too complicated and may cause the deal abort. Susan and her team have excellent experience, knowledge and ability to handle challenges. Contact them to find out yourself.

Susan has been helping us look for a home and has been outstanding. We cannot recommend her enough as she has made sure we haven't overbid or let great opportunities and investments go. Not to mention her Mavins team is fantastic. If she is not available, there is always someone just as qualified and helpful available to show us homes and provide insight.

Susan was incredibly professional and helpful throughout the process of selling our parents' home. She walked us through every step and took the time to address all our questions and concerns. Susan helped us to get the considerable amount of work completed on the house to prepare it for sale, and she was highly knowledgeable regarding all the paperwork that had to be done. We especially appreciated how she was willing to work with us long distance, since we live across the country from our parents. We highly recommend Susan Devaney for her excellent real estate services.

Susan and the Mavins Group are five stars all the way. I do not think I could have managed this sale without her. I have dealt with other agents before and by far Susan was the most knowledgeable and most responsive. By nature, I am a very nervous person. Susan guided me throughout this process and had to talk me "off the ledge" many times. Her team is professional and attentive and each one knew haw to effectively answer my questions and keep me from having a breakdown. She also facilitated providing me with every service I could use from a contractor to a mover. She was my moving concierge. KUDOS TO HER AND HER TEAM!!!!! The BEST!!

If you want to buy/sell the house in New Jersey, no need to look around. Contact Cheryl Siko and/or her team and you will find out. Not only she has extensive experience and knowledge, but also she has warmest heart for her clients. Have you heard real estate agent on call 24x7? Not in my previous experience until I meet Cheryl and her team. Any question you ask, they will communicate back to you either real time or asap, never go to another day/night. You will have a good night sleep since you feel she and her team care, and they are always there for you!

In the open house and closing walk through, Cheryl helped me to understand the land, house, structure, component, material, gardening, how to do home improvement, pros and cons. It is not just the house I bought. I also learn how to build the healthy relationship with the house.

There could be expected events during the real estate process. I can not imagine to get my deal done without the help from her and her team. A lot of this or that regulation in the township and mortgage bank may scare the seller and buyer, delay or even jeopardize the deal. Hiring the best professionals like Cheryl will make your life easy and comfortable in the whole transaction.

When we first decided to sell our Westfield house in February, 2015, I contacted Susan. She came in and respectfully and professionally put together a checklist of items that she recommended to be done in order to best showcase our home. She put me in touch with the appropriate people who accomplished the "to do" list. These workmen did excellent work in a timely fashion. Our home was listed in mid March and sold late May. It was amazing!

Faced the task of downsizing her older parents while caring for one with dementia. She hired the Mavins to help and said:

"The energy and enthusiasm was contagious. The Mavins were very focused on the job and really helped distinguish what should be kept and why. The people were exceptional on all levels. Professional but still friendly and compassionate."

When asked if she would recommend our services, she said:
Absolutely. There is no way we would have been able to downsize from a 3-story house to a one bedroom apartment, and deal with all the stuff, without their advice and efforts.

"When we had to move my mother from her home of 55 years to an Independent Living Facility we enlisted the services of Susan Devaney and the Moving Mavins. Having experience with Senior Citizens the team was able to gain the confidence of my mother, help her decide what to take and made this traumatic period a very pleasant experience. They took care of all the packing and moving of her furniture to the new location. When she moved in to her apartment the furniture, pictures, knick knacks and personal effects were exactly where they were where they were in her house as they had taken pictures to guide them. There was not a box or piece of paper to be found her apartment. Looking back over the move we knew we made the right decision e since they provided A+ service along with a personal touch. We strongly encourage anyone planning to move an elderly family member to contact Susan Devaney and the Moving Mavins."
