"We are very pleased with our recent townhouse purchase. From a mere
thought of buying a second residence for our daughter and a preliminary
web search for suitable properties, we contacted Renee Gast on one of her listings. She introducted us to Jon Adler, the buyer agent on her team, who took us from thought to sale in a few short weeks. Jon was very helpful in every possible way - understanding our needs, finding listings to fit those needs, being available whenever I called, patient with my many questions and always cheerful and professional. Thank you very much for making everything go so smoothly. Ro loves her new home!"
Emily and Chen Lin, Job Well Done By Renee Gast
Renee helped us to buy a wonderful ocean front house as an investment property a few years ago and we really appreciated her help. Therefore when we were thinking about getting a new house for our growing family, we immediately thought of Renee and asked her to help us again. Renee was attentive to our needs and requirements for the new home, which were definitely not easy to satisfy. Renee was also very patient during the long searching process. And at the end we were just so thrilled to be able to find this house that had everything we wanted.Renee was very hard working, responsible and efficient. She always paid attention to our thoughts and represented our interests in the negotiation process. She responded quickly to our questions and concerns all the time and always kept us informed. Closing on the house is always a very stressful process, no matter you are a first or second time buyer. There are always things you cannot foresee. Renee provided us tremendous amount of support during this stressful period of time.
We had worked with some other real estate agents before, but none of them could match Renee's professionalism, diligence and her willingness to help. We will love to work with Renee again if we need to buy or sell house in the future. We highly recommend Renee as a real estate agent.

It's now a year since we first saw our gorgeous white magnolia tree in full bloom. We are deeply indebted to Renee Gast and her team for introducing us to this wonderful house. Renee and her team listened hard to our needs and requirements for a home, which were not easy to satisfy. We asked Renee to help us find a home that was walking distance to our work, with plenty of space for home offices and guests. We also hoped to have panoramic views from our home, not easy to find in Central New Jersey. In addition, we do not have an unlimited budget and we were not hopeful to find a home that fitted all of our needs. Renee and Jon were very patient and persistent in searching for us, and in listening to our concerns. We were astonished to be introduced to this home which suits all of our needs perfectly. Renee and Jon supported us through the entire process of closing on the house which was stressful for us at times. Another important benefit of working with Renee and Jon was that they have a detailed list of local tradespeople for us to call upon, since our home needed quite a bit of work to make it ready for us. The builders and plumbers that Renee and Jon recommended have become our regular and trustworthy helpers. The ordeal of looking for our home became a dream-come-true for us, and I don't see how we could have achieved this without the magical work of Renee and Jon. With great pleasure I'll be recommending Renee and Jon to my friends and colleagues who are looking to buy a home or investment property.
Gigi and Milad Khalil, Pleased with The Gast Team
Renee and Jon were a super team! Because I was still
living and working in New York, getting appointments
was impossible with other agents; but they were there
to work around my needs. As a first-time home buyer,
I had a lot to learn, but they were patient and helped
walk me through every step and worked with me to
negotiate a fair deal on the perfect house.

"We love the ocean and always wanted to have an ocean front house. Renee helped us to find the perfect ocean front house in Laurence Harbor. Renee is professional and very knowledgeable about everything regarding house hunting and the buying process. She is very responsible, hard working, and efficient. Renee always returned our phone calls and emails with answers to our questions within a short period of time. Renee was very helpful and gave us good advice during the lenghty negotiation process with the seller. We highly reccomend Renee as a real estate agent."
Burt & Flo Stein, Satisfied Buyers

Rebecca Davis, Satisfied Buyer Testimonial to Jon Adler, Buyer-Agent on the Renee Gast Team
"I had an excellent buying experience with Renee Gast. She really listned to what I had to say and represented my interests in negotiating my offer. Renee was attentive at all times and responded to my questions throughout the transaction. Because of her professionalism and attention to detail, my purchase went smoothly. I would be happy to refer all my friends and associates to Renee."

"I am very happy with the service Renee provided for me. She corresponded very promptly and showed me houses which met all of my criteria. Consequently, I wound up with a house in just a few days! I also found Renee's follow up service to be excellent."
Lillian and William Mills, First Time Buyer
"My wife Lillian and I met Renee Gast in late April 2004 when we visited an Open House in our neighborhood. We had just begun our search for a home to buy in
We had examined at least 40 homes through e-mail and toured 25. We were slow and deliberate in our home search. We had some idea of what we wanted, and we knew it was a only a matter of time finding it. Sometimes, even the most optimistic can get a little doubtful. We were unsuccessful with a couple of bids, but through our seven-month process, Renee never failed to bring a spirited sense of mission to our home tours. She has knowledge and experience and can seriously discuss options when it comes to remodeling a home. When or if she doesn´t know something, she´ll tell you that also. Her attitude is consistently positive and totally upbeat.
When we entered "the home" on that November evening, something clicked in our heads and hearts. Within 5 minutes of entering the house, Renee jokingly said to me while admiring the kitchen cabinetry, "This is your house Bill, can you feel it?" Not only did we feel it, but after the tour we were eager to put in a bid to purchase what is now "our unbelievable" house. For a moment we toyed with the idea of going to the office that night to put together an offer, but it was well after 9:00pm so we decided to wait until the next day. We made an offer the next morning, and within a day or two we received word the sellers had accepted our offer. It was a true blessing in many ways. We owe a great deal to Renee, for her tremendous and tireless efforts.
We are middle-aged professionals, who are extremely fortunate to have met Renee Gast. The patience, care, sensitivity, diligence, and ever positive attitude she displayed during months of searching for our dream home are rare. Renee Gast sets the standard for how a realtor should be, serving the needs of the client, and how the home buying process should be ? a wonderful experience! Renee Gast has become a true and valued friend to our family."
My personal experience with Renée Gast ranked far superior than I could have ever imagined. She very strategically walked me through the very intense process of the Property Search and never allowed me to feel less than knowledgeable. The varied Real Estate guides never quite captured the live performance of the search ? certainly not in the way Renée so graciously walked me through the process. As we all know, when the gray moments surface and it may appear that our property goals are unattainable (for one simplistic reason or another), Reneé's advice was always genuine and honest. What I valued the most was Renée's professionalism, diligence and respect for time. She was aware that my office real estate does not provide the right setting for discussions associated with private deals, and as a result, she took the time to send e-mails and made follow-up calls after business hours. The moments when I felt tense, she knew how to bring about balance to ultimately succeed. Renée is unquestionably diverse at all levels. In summary, the process is one that I will forever remember as favorable. Renée is truly an ambassador of real estate!"
Maureen Manos, Buyer
"I am very thankful that I worked with Renee for my home purchase. She was very informed about the area I was moving to and also on the current market trends. Renee worked very hard so I was able to close within 30 days, I would highly reccomend Renee to anyone buying or selling a home...she is a true professional."
Yujing Zhao and Chengjun Deng, First Time Buyers
"We are so thankful for Mrs. Gast, our realty agent, who helped us choose a suitable property and helped us to analyze the benefits and disadvantages of a few properties in Highland Park. Renée knows the place so well and explained to us the details of various aspects of the houses we were interested in. With the newly built confidence, we made our final decision to buy our present home. It is not an easy task at all to close a deal while facing some competitors for the same property. Renée with her expertise in this business, as well as her enthusiasm, eventually let us realize our dream to be home owners."
