“Pam Williams has been an absolutely phenomenal realtor! With Pam’s outstanding help we put a purchase offer on a home on Fairview Drive in Cortlandville about a month ago and she is now helping us sell our much loved Truxton home. She is an extremely hard worker, very dedicated and so very pleasant to work with. No matter how small the details are she always keeps us informed of the progress. She has helped us through many details that had to be taken care of during the process of buying and selling a home; many that we were not even aware of! She explains everything so thoroughly and makes sure we understand each step of buying and/or selling a home. The pictures of our home we perfect and the widely spread advertisements, we are sure, resulted in us receiving 5 showings and 3 purchase offers within the first week that our house went on the market! Better yet, all three purchase offers were for our asking price. All of this happening even before our open hosue! She always has a smile and such a positive outlook that we look forward to each visit. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor! Thank you so much for having her on the Yaman team!”

She is knowledgeable and personable. I’ve known her a long time. She will work hard for you!

If you are considering the sale of a property, or the purchase of a property, you can be assured that Sue will meet the specific needs and goals you are seeking! My wife and I have known Sue since 1992 through her work at SUNY Cortland, as a YWCA board member and past president, and as a dedicated member of Lime Hollow Nature Center. Through her many affiliations in the area and her personal interactions among an extensive range of individuals, she maintains a broad familiarity of the community. She has always been well-liked and admired in all settings.

Being a goal-oriented and an especially organized individual, Sue focuses on particular requirements by attending to specific details. We’ve all known clients who have switched realtors because contact has dwindled and they feel neglected by a non-attentive broker at a time when you really need to sell or buy as soon as possible! That is why, when the time comes for us to downsize, Sue will be OUR choice as realtor.

She has class. Works very hard, self motivated, professional and achieves great results. She is one of the best and I would recommend her to anyone.

“We both felt very assured that [Monique] was a perfect ‘fit’ for us the day [Monique] first stopped by. We loved [her] spunk, energy, and confidence! It helped us get through some stressful moments!”

“Dear Monique,
Thank you for helping us find our new home!
We really appreciate the lovely gift basket you brought us on closing day. Everything was delicious!
It was so thoughtful of you to bring a gift for Megan. She loves the doll and animal crackers are her new favorite cookie.
Thanks!”

“…great job selling the property at DeRuyter Lake. We were surprised that it went so fast! We appreciated the phone calls, paper work and other things that went with the sale.”

“We want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the manner in which you handled the sale of our home. At the outset, we were impressed with your professional, yet caring manner, in the sales process. We found that the more we understood the sales process, the less pressured we were, and the more comfortable it was to make decisions. Your periodic communication of the local real estate market showed that you care. Finally, the team effort and attitude displayed by you and your associates made our experience a pleasant one.”

“Our Experiences with Yaman Real Estate have been wonderful. Joan Plew was always ready to help with anything we ever needed. Before we even had moved to Cortland, my in-laws came to do some “scouting” for us. Joan welcomed them, took them all over town, answered all their questions about Cortland. When we arrived, Joan helped us look for a rental property, we wanted to get a feel for the town before we purchased. When we were ready to buy, Joan and Yaman were with us every step of the way, finding us our perfect home. When we were getting my parents to move up to the area, Joan was there for us again. Working diligently to help them make this move. after 40+ years in the same house in Long Island. She was caring , patient, warm and always professional, going more than the extra mile, on what was a very challenging transaction. We have recommended Joan whole heartedly, always with very successful results. Joan Plew and Yaman Real Estate have been one of the most positive experiences we have had in real estate dealings.”

Greg & Danielle Miller

“We were impressed with Joan’s professionalism when we bought our house thru her over 10 years ago. When we chose to sell our house she was our first and only choice. Her experience and knowledge helped us to sell our house quickly and at a great price. “

“My husband and I chose Shuryl after a recommendation from another realtor and we couldn’t be more happy with her. We were trying to sell our current home and also purchase a new one but this was not a quick or simple transaction. However through the entire process there were many, many bumps and hurdles on other peoples parts and Shuryl was always on top of everyone to make sure they were doing what they needed to be doing. She never failed to text or call us back even if all we needed was some reassurance. Shuryl has definitely become not just a realtor but also a friend and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to someone else.”

Cheryl Husner

“I purchased a home March 29, 2010. Thanks to Shuryl Menapace. My new home has four bedrooms, two full baths, garage, and in ground pool. Shuryl had worked with me well over three years, trying to find that perfect house that was in my price range. It was not easy for her at all I definitely had my own visions of what I wanted. Many road trip for sure, but it was always fun. All the road trips paid off, I finally found something that worked for me. Shuryl was probably thinking it’s about time! I definitely tried her patience. Her time and patience was greatly appreciated. Thank you so much Shuryl for all that you did.

Shuryl always had time for me. Never put me on the back burner. I called up and she worked her magic to get me in to look at that potential dream house that could be mine. Shuryl and I looked at so many houses, I tell you, so many homes. Some OK, some just WOW. How could people do that to an investment they own?
Came time for my closing and what a better person to work with. When she said she would handle everything, I did not believe her at first, but once again she proved me wrong. All I had to do was to go to the bank and sign my name on many papers. Shuryl was right there all the way through everything.
Thanks again Shuryl you are a wonderful and appreciative person to work with. You know I will be buying another home from you for sure some day. I hope not to soon though. Thanks for all your help.”

“My husband and I purchased a home in October of 2009. We had the pleasure of working with Shuryl Menapace of Yaman Real Estate. Shuryl was recommended to us by a family member?s coworker, and I am so thankful for that recommendation. When I first contacted Shuryl by email, I had a response from her within 45 minutes. We met Shuryl at the Yaman Real Estate office later that week. From the beginning of our professional relationship she was outgoing, energetic, and excited to be working with us. We were immediately comfortable working with Shuryl to find our first home. Shuryl took us to countless listings, never pushing us but always lending us her much appreciated advice and wisdom. She was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls, always offering kind words and helpful answers. When we did find the home that was perfect for us, she kept us up to date on every detail of the purchasing process. Working with Shuryl was an absolute pleasure. In the time that we worked with her she was not just our realtor- she became a friend. We are always quick to recommend Shuryl Menapace to anyone buying or selling a house, and we will absolutely work with her again if we ever decide to sell or purchase another home. Thank you so much, Shuryl! You found our dream home!”

Gary Baccile

“I meet Shuryl Menapace at a property for the first time three years ago. I was immediately impressed by her enthusiasm to show off the property. Additionally her knowledge of financing certainly helped in the sale process. Over the last three years I?ve had the privilege of having Shuryl assist me in the purchase of three other properties in Cortland, NY.

These sales, along with the process of closing on the properties ended with no surprises to me as a new owner. My plans are to continue to rely on Shuryl as a necessary part of my team for future purchases. I’ve greatly appreciated her assistance in these matters. I would highly recommend her to anyone else who is looking to purchase a property.

If anyone is in need of a highly skilled real estate professional they should contact Shuryl for assistance at any time.”

“From the onset of our interaction with Cindy, she gave us exceptional personal and professional attention. Her knowledgeable and caring attitude, dedication, and expert skills as an agent proved vital, as we navigated a hasty and complex move into a new region.  Cindy was immediately and exceptionally  responsive to our needs and worked hard to protect our interests as buyers.  We quickly developed a beneficial and trustworthy alliance that served us well throughout the process of finding and buying a new home.  Her willingness to go the extra mile for us as her clients proved more than admirable. It was reassuring and truly inspiring. We are incredibly grateful for her utmost care and professionalism, and for her amazing commitment in helping we establish a new home. Thank you Cindy!”

Melinda Platt

“As a first-time homebuyer I was very unfamiliar with the process of buying a home. When I started working with Cindy, I knew I was in good hands. She made sure to explain everything to me throughout the entire process and was always patient, I never felt I was wasting her time with questions. Whenever I hit a bump in the road she was right there to help. She always pulled through and did whatever it took to make sure things were going smoothly. Cindy kept in constant contact with phone and email updates, I never felt like I was ‘out of the loop’. I absolutely could not have done this without Cindy on my team. I am so glad I had her working with me and I will be looking her up again when I decide to sell. I would recommend Cindy to anyone buying or selling a home.”

Steven Bossard and Chere’ DiIorio

“We can’t say enough about the great service that we received from Cindy Sloan during our recent home sale… Because of her excellent service, we decided to ask Cindy for her help in finding us another home. Although our plans changed from a single family in the country to a multi family home in the city, Cindy never gave up trying to help us find what we were looking for. Cindy worked, what seemed like, endless hours trying to organize our home sale and home purchase. We could not have been happier when the sale and purchase both closed on the same day, just hours apart. Cindy never left us guessing or wondering what was going on and was always there to answer questions or make viewing appointments. We would not hesitate to recommend Cindy to anyone asking about buying or selling a home. Thank you Cindy, for a wonderful selling and buying experience.”

Jeremy and Amy Arts

“As first time home buyers, my husband and I looked for a house and community that would be our home. The Cortland area seemed perfect for us,since I work in Syracuse and my husband works in Binghamton. We saw homes with the Yaman Signage and gave the agency a call and were introduced to Ingrid Dunham. We were happy, yet nervous, to go look at homes, knowing just how much were able to afford and where we would like to live. Ingrid was very flexible in scheduling the house search because were were limited to weekends. She was very helpful in scheduling the meetings needed with the lawyers and mortgaging agency. We would recommend any first time home buyer to give Ingrid a call.”

Casey Gross

“Thank you very much for finding me my little “dream house”. I am so very appreciative of your efforts in finding what I consider the perfect house for me and my desire to down size from a larger house. You were extremely attentive in listening to my needs in what I wanted in a new home. I knew I was in good hands because you showed tremendous professionalism in being attentive to my concerns, committed to finding just the right house, and always very helpful in answering my questions and providing me information as needed. It had been over 20+ years since purchasing a new home, and you walked me through the closing with ease; again, conscientious with every detail and question answered. Your commitment, dedication, and high level of professionalism in the real estate industry is to be commended and I would highly recommend you and Yaman Real Estate to family and friends who might be interested in buying or selling a home. Thank you again Ingrid!”
