Reviews and Testimonials

Most of our customers are very happy with our services. Some write thank you letters. Others post reviews. Many refer their friends and family to us. We are very greatful and appreciate their kinds words and support.

I recently had the pleasure of utilizing the services of Diane and Shawn Fox to sell my aunt and uncle's home in Chatham, NJ. My wife and I interviewed four real estate firms and agents before selecting them to represent us. From the start, we knew that Shawn and Diane Fox were the best. Shawn and Diane gave an excellent presentation of all local and regional sale data; emphasized the value of the internet, online listings, and their interactive website; answered all our questions and concerns; and said they would be there for us throughout the New Jersey sale process. They made recommendations and assisted with staging. Diane took many digital photos of the home's interior and exterior, all carefully done to accent the property. Next, they prepared the actual listing for my preview and approval. Shawn and Diane held an open house, but the most valuable sales tool was their knowledge of how to present the home on the internet and all the real estate web sites in addition to the New Jersey MLS system. All my home ownership experience was from Maryland and Virginia, I had no idea of the different selling process in New Jersey. Well true to their word, Shawn and Diane were there for me throughout. If it had not been for Shawn and Diane's encouragement and words of wisdom, I would have walked away from the sale several times during the attorney review process. Their knowledge kept me on track and settlement took place. We were very pleased with their services and highly recommend them.

Thanks very much for the excellent service that you have provided on selling my mother's house. You have gone above and beyond on what is customary expected from a Realtor to ensure a smooth transaction. I have bought and sold many houses in the past thirty years and you are by far the best Realtor that I have worked with.

Percy - Parsippany

When we decided to sell our townhouse in Glenmont Commons, we asked Shawn and Diane Fox to interview for the job. We needed to know what was happening in the market and we wanted to learn about the process of selling our home. Several years ago, when we bought the house, Shawn and Diane were the Realtors who represented the sellers. Back then, they did a great job of marketing the home with plenty of great pictures of the place, which drew me to come and see the house. Once there, we loved it and bought it. We had a sense that Shawn and Diane could very well do this again several years later. So, we hired them. The house was on the market for only 12 days with 2 bidders in the door! With their experience, they were able to take us through the selling process, guiding us each step of the way. As we moved to sunny California before the closing date, they took care of the small repairs and final details that the house needed before the walk through. Thank you for all your help. We couldn't have hired a better team!

Jose and Marisol - Parsippany

We needed to sell our home as quickly as possible and did not have much time to research Realtors in the area. Luckily for us, the first name that came up in our interent search was Shawn and Diane Fox. From the moment they walked through our front door, Shawn and Diane were not only extremely professional, but more importantly, they were friendly, personable, and helped set our minds at ease about having to sell our home during a historically difficult real estate market. The pictures they took of the house and brochures that they created for potential buyers were top notch. Shawn's knowledge of the pricing of real estate in the area, including what he thought we should list the house for was right on the money. We also had some repair issues that needed to be addressed and Shawn went above and beyond to help us get the problems taken care of, which in turn helped us to maximize the final sales price of the house. I would highly recommend the Foxes to anyone looking for a Realtor in the Morris County NJ area. From listing until closing, we could not have been more satisfied with the way they went about selling our home. Thanks Shawn and Diane!

David - Rockaway

Thank you Shawn and Diane for your real estate expertise. You advised us correctly of how to price our home and even in a very bad market, we got two parties bidding for our home at the same time. You both did a thorough job and made it a pleasant experience for us both. Thanks again.

Tom and Marsha - Rockaway

Shawn has been an outstanding asset when it comes to buying and selling real estate. Recently I had the unfortunate task of selling my parents home after they passed away. Shawn was sympathetic to the situation, but also realized that in time the home needed to sell. He met with my sister and I and gave advice on how to approach the sale, what to update and where to focus our time to get the home ready to market. Although it was difficult to sell our childhood home, Shawn made the process as easy as possible and with his guidance the home sold in less than 2 weeks. Over the past number of years Shawn has been my Realtor and I have bought and sold 3 other homes with him. The process is always simple, fair and we always felt like we were his only customers, even though he has many. I highly recommend Shawn to anyone that is looking for a caring, professional Realtor.

John - Roxbury

Working with Shawn and Diane to sell my house made the process a breeze. They were both true professionals, taking my house from listing to closing in about 2 months for almost the asking price. In the late 2010 market, this exceeded my most optimistic expectations. They were always available to ensure every detail was done right, which was especially important to me since I had moved out of town while the house was on the market. I highly recommend this great team!

Steve and Lorraine - Morris Plains

It was a pleasure working with Shawn when we sold our townhouse. His ability to showcase our home, with the professional quality photographs, and the marketing strategy that he proposed brought a significant number of potential buyers to view our home over a three week period. As a result, we had two offers and a contract within three weeks in a difficult market where several homes on our street had been on the market for over six months. Shawn is very professional and considerate of his clients' needs. We highly recommend him.

Keith and Dana - Rockaway

I am proud to have worked with Shawn Fox, a man who recognizes that service sells! Shawn's approach is deliberate, realistic and very professional. From the moment he delivered his pitch to sell my home (actually he was selling someone else's home when I met him) he exemplified the meaning of the words integrity and commitment. His marketing approach in a tough real estate market was thorough and very professional including embracing technology to expand his reach. I was comfortable that I was in good hands. During the process, he was helpful and knowledgeable. He followed up on everyone who toured my home and kept me informed. Real estate transactions can be daunting but Shawn made it seem simple. He is an asset to his profession and to anyone who hires him to either buy or sell their home. I would recommend him without hesitation!

Kathy - Hanover

I want to thank you for the outstanding services you provided in the marketing and sale of my Berkshire Hills townhome. During these uncertain times, especially in the real estate market, I wanted to make sure that I selected a representative that would focus on marketing my home for a quick and reasonable sale. You came through. Receiving multiple offers and a solid contract in 5 days - for full list price - not only impressed me, but exceeded my expectations. You are without a doubt a pleasure to work with and I will, without hesitation recommend you to any of my friends and family looking to sell (or purchase) their home in the future.

David - Denville

I am writing this to show my appreciation for the splendid job Shawn and Diane Fox did in helping me sell my Glenmont Commons townhome so I could pursue my dream of being a beach bum in Carlsbad, CA. Not only are they extremely proficient and knowledgeable in the real estate field, but they were also my lovely neighbors. My condo was on the market for only about 10 days and they smoothed out every detail of all of the transactions and processes for me. I highly recommend this great team to anyone who is considering buying or selling in this highly competitive market.

Arlene - Parsippany

Shawn and Diane Fox deliver knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous service. As our agents for both our sale and purchase, they were proactive and attentive, providing us with timely information. We highly recommend the Foxes to anyone - whether this is your first home sale or your fifth.

Gregg and Karin - Rockaway

When my wife and I made the decision to sell our Mountain Club condo in Parsippany, we knew that we had a small window of time to get it sold before home prices dropped more. We hired Shawn and Diane Fox because of their experience and most importantly, their vast understanding of how to use technology to sell real estate in Morris County, NJ. They created a impressive marketing plan that included our own website with nicely staged photos, descriptive information, and a great video that made our condo look inviting. The Fox Home Team got our home sold faster then we expected and for the highest amount of any unit in the prior six months. As soon as we were under contract, Shawn and Diane helped us to find a rental unit and when the time is right, and we are ready to buy, we will call upon them again!

Patrick and Kari - Parsippany

I first hired Shawn Fox to sell my home back in 1998. He did a great job. Since then, Shawn has helped me to buy or sell another 4 times. I have always been very happy with his services. Just recently, I found myself making another move. Once again I called upon Shawn to sell my home. Unfortunately, the market was at a virtual standstill and the economy at a disastrous stage. Boy were we worried! I was prepared for my home to be on the market for a very long time. However, Shawn and Diane came, inspected, took pictures, put together a fantastic brochure, and put the pictures and video of the house online. They informed us about the current market conditions and recommended a list price range. They worked with us to put the house on the market in February, the worst month for a house to go up for sale. However, we needed the home to sell as soon as possible and figured it would take a long time. The Foxes got to work, and, low and behold, the house sold in THREE WEEKS! This certainly took us by surprise given the market conditions and we were glad to have to scramble to pack and prepare for our move. We are in our new home now, thanks to Shawn and Diane. Through the years, I have found that the Fox Home Team WILL make it happen no matter what your circumstances are. My moves are proof of that.

Millie - Mount Olive

This message is for all prospective home buyers/sellers. Please allow me to use this opportunity to commend the Fox Team. My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Shawn and Diane for over a year now. We listed our condo for sale and were able to sell it for nearly the price we wanted! This seemed almost impossible based on the current housing market (its not a sellers market), and on the fact that we were residing in a multi-dwelling condominium complex with several competitors. The team was able to aggressively negotiate on our behalf to sell our property for nearly what we listed! Also, the team was able to correspond with the fire department for inspection on our behalf. Mrs. Fox sat in for me (in my condo) and waited for the fire department while I was at work. Mr. Fox also came to my home in the evening to help me install the proper equipment. They also gave us all the information and literature needed regarding the housing market, how to close, how to stage your home to impress prospective buyers, what to look for, and a comparative sampling analysis. My wife and I are currently looking for a new home. Undoubtedly, we will request the services of the Fox Team once more. We highly recommend them if you are in need of experienced, knowledgeable, hardworking, and conscientious real estate agents. Thanks for all your help!

Kelechi and Sujata - Parsippany

My experience selling my condo was so smooth. Mr. Shawn Fox is a very down to earth person. I was very pleased with his professionalism during the entire process. Selling my condo was a pleasant experience. I was very impressed with the professional way the listing appeared. All questions were answered completely and thoroughly by Mr. Fox and his office staff. I wanted to share a small story which shows Mr. Fox's commitment and his character. I was out-of-town and I requested Mr. Fox for his help to obtain the Smoke Certificate, and, Mr. Fox scheduled and waited twice for the fire department at my condo. He went the extra mile when he bought a new Fire Extinguisher just in-case I needed it to get the certificate. Selling my condo was a smooth transaction; a long distance sell was made easy. You are a great asset to the real estate profession. I will certainly refer anybody that may be interested in buying or selling to you! Thank you for everything that you have done for us. Again, we will always be grateful.

Arif - Parsippany

Wonderful working with the Foxes! In this market, it takes a great effort to get any deal done, and they worked hard and keep things on track. I appreciate all they have done.

Joe - Randolph

First, I wanted to say it was a pleasure working with you. Thank you for working with us to make this an easy and exciting process. We truly appreciate your guidance and constructive criticism to help us stage our home to look in Showroom Condition. I believe your thoughts and idea's on how to clean up the clutter and selectively place our furniture helped us sell our house in such a short time frame. Again, I can't thank you enough and I will definitely recommend using you in the future.

Mike and Lisa - Parsippany

Over the last 15 years we have bought and sold several homes and have dealt with several Realtors. On our sale we used Shawn Fox and were impressed on how efficient and determined he was. Shawn did more then just sell our home, he was there every step of the way. By far he is the best Realtor we have ever used.

Greg and Denise - Mount Olive

Vino and I cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make the sale of our home go so smoothly. We were very impressed with how professionally you executed the deal and smoothed out the glitch we had during the inspection and worked closely with our relocation company to address all outstanding issues. I will be sure to pass your name and number on to my friends and colleagues in need of a Realtor. Thank you for always making yourself available, and for all your support. God Bless.

Sivam and Vino - Parsippany

The Foxes able to sell our townhome within 9 days during an extremely competitive market. Their professionalism, detail-oriented nature, and guidance throughout the process were unsurpassed. We would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home free of the stress that so often accompanies this process!

Scott and Barbara - Parsippany

Working with Shawn and Diane Fox was a pleasure! When we decided to relocate to CA, the real estate market wasn't doing too well. Shawn and his team came up with a great marketing plan and remained focused on selling our townhome and making it stand out from all the rest. When Shawn found a buyer, we moved out. From the home inspection until the closing, Shawn took care of our home when we couldn't be there!

Matt and Cheryl - Parsippany

We were very pleased with the service we received from the Fox Team. They laid out a very thorough plan to market and sell our home. They secured a qualified buyer immediately and continued to walk us through the rest of the process. Their attention to detail was priceless. We became friends through the sale of our home (which is an odd way to make friends), but that friendship is very comforting when it comes to something so monumental in life as selling or buying a home.

TJ and Payal - Parsippany

I just wanted to again say thank you for all your help with renting my townhouse. You gave me such good advice and were so willing to share your knowledge and experiences with me. I wanted to let you know how much I really appreciated that fact. At a time where I was really nervous and anxious, you put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with my decision. You made what could have been a nightmare, a pleasant experience. I will always be grateful to you for that.

Marguerite - Parsippany

In the summer of 2006 my husband and I put our townhouse on the market hoping to sell it ourselves. We did a lot of research and thought we had priced our house well within the price range of what other townhouses were selling for in our area. During the first open house a very nice young man came in and looked it over and seemed to be pleased with what he saw. He introduced himself to us and asked if we needed any help and of course we immediately said no. He then asked if he could drop off some material that might be helpful during our process of selling our home. He never pushed or told us that we could not do it alone (like some of the real estate agents did). Well, summer turned into fall, fall turned into winter, then we took our townhome off the market. Shawn continued to check on us, never asking anything more than is there any way he could help. As winter 2007 came to an end we put our sign back out and once again we remained hopeful, but still nothing happened. By the beginning of spring we decided to start interviewing Realtors to see how they could help us. Well, to make a long story short, after interviewing many different companies and Realtors, there was no doubt in our mind that Shawn Fox was our man. He was a true professional, honest and friendly and his record for selling townhouses in our area was really quite incredible so we hired him. Shawn kept us updated on all of the advertising he was doing as well as having as many open houses as we needed. When we were really very discouraged, it was Shawn who had no doubts about selling our house. Finally, by the middle of August 2007 we SOLD. We were so happy we could not have done this without the help of Shawn. My message to you is trust in your Realtor, they know how to sell and they bring only qualified buyers to come and see your house. If I ever sell again (and I am sure I will) Shawn will get the job no doubt!

Joel and Marla - Parsippany

Shawn Fox and his team helped us sell our Glenmont Commons townhome in a difficult real estate market. Shawn came up with great ideas and strategies on how to market our home. Shawn's marketing produced a steady stream of buyers who looked at our townhome. It was great having an agent who lived in Glenmont Commons because Shawn was able to show our townhome with just a few minutes notice. Shawn's persistence and determination paid off when he found a buyer for our home. Shawn helped us handle all the home inspection issues and details right up until closing. We feel Shawn was very familiar with the home inspection issues that did occur because Shawn is a Glenmont Commons townhome owner himself. Shawn offered a quick fix for each problem and referred us to a terrific handyman. Thanks for all your help!

Nunzio and Lucia - Parsippany

We tried for sale by owner for six weeks. Although we showed our townhome to over 80 parties, we didn't receive any reasonable offers. When we were ready to partner with a Realtor, we chose Shawn. He listened. He understood our goals and our timeline. Shawn brought in two offers within 12 days! It wasn't luck. We contribute Shawn's success to the fact that he listens, does excellent upfront preparation, and follows through.

Steve and Carol - Randolph

With the quick and hectic pace of the real estate market, we thought it would be nearly impossible to sell our house and buy another at the same time. Shawn made it happen. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy and stress free the whole process was. We are thankful for the thorough and honest work we received from Shawn.

Michael and Suzanne - Hanover

Gail and I both feel we were lucky to have you and your team represent us in the sale of our townhome. Your marketing programs provided the perfect exposure for our home. Your constant confidence and guidance kept us calm and had our house priced correctly in a soft marketplace. It is easy to be a salesperson in a good real estate market; it is much more difficult to be one in a bad real estate market. You showed us that you have what it takes to market homes in tough times.

Jeff and Gail - Hanover

Thanks so much for everything, Shawn ... I can't believe how fast the townhome sold in this down market! We very much appreciate everything you did to market our townhome and negotiate on our behalf. We also appreciate your honest assessment of the market value given the current economic conditions. It helped us to jointly decide on a realistic listing price, which we felt made the difference between the townhome languishing on the market vs. selling quickly. Your suggestions for staging the townhome for sale, to help show off it's strengths, were also very helpful.

Douglas and Sheila - Hanover

We would like to thank you for all of the hard work in selling our townhouse. You went above and beyond our expectations, and, keeping us informed every step of the way was a plus. You are truly an asset to Re/max. We would recommend you highly to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

Ronald and Diane - Rockaway

It was a pleasure to work with Shawn Fox and his team due to their professionalism and comprehensive understanding of the real estate market. Shawn answered all of our many questions in a timely and thorough fashion. He had a sound strategy to list our townhome for the rental market, consequently, we rented our home in less than two weeks (in December!!). Furthermore, Shawn worked patiently with us to purchase a new home. He took all of our needs into consideration and helped to find and negotiate the right home for us. We highly recommend this team.

Kunal and Priya - Rockaway

Right from the start, Shawn was very professional and meticulous about his work. The excellent Fox Home Selling Plan coupled with Shawn and Diane's dedication to the effort helped us sell our home quickly, even in a weak market. I would highly recommend Shawn Fox to anyone who's looking for a dependable and professional Realtor!

Krishna and Nayana - Rockaway

Especially in these tough times, I appreciated the very detailed and professional way that Shawn marketed and sold my townhouse. I always found him sincere and very prompt to respond to any calls I made to him.

Alex - Parsippany

We wanted to thank you so much for all your efforts in selling our townhome. Through all the stressful moments you both always directed us in a calm and professional manner. The web-site with all the pictures and feed back was excellent. Thank you so much again for all your help.

Joe and Robin - Parsippany

We had a wonderful experience selling our townhome and buying our new home with Shawn and Diane Fox. Their website made it easy to keep track of our progress while our home was on the market. Their excellent marketing and advertising of our home meant that we always had many prospective buyers interested in seeing our home. They were easy to get in touch with and responded promptly to our requests to go and see prospective new homes. We have complete confidence in Shawn and Diane, which made the moving process much easier. When asked which Realtor we worked with when buying and selling our home we always highly recommend Shawn and Diane Fox.

Brian and Rachel - Madison

We were amazed that our property can be rented out in such a short time, especially during this slow housing market. Shawn made it happen by his professional experience and skill. Shawn, Thank you so much. Great job!

Zhe Li - Parsippany

Shawn is an incredible real estate resource. He is very organized, professional, and creative. He keeps abreast and effectively utilizes the latest technologies to optimize his clients time and streamline the process for buying and selling a home. He is also extremely talented at marketing and advertising homes for sale. Shawn has been my buying agent for 1 rental and 2 homes and my selling agent for 1 home. I intend to utilize him for all of my future real estate transactions.

Bob - West Orange

As first-time homebuyers, we recently had the great pleasure of working with Diane Fox on purchasing our first home in northern New Jersey. From start to finish, Diane was a consummate professional who steered us in the right direction at every step of the way. She is incredibly kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and gets the job done. As total novices to the real estate experience, Diane explained everything thoroughly to us, and we never doubted that she was always looking out for our best interests. She responds to communications in a very timely manner, almost immediately most of the time, and even took time out of a family vacation to help us with an especially tricky part of our negotiation process. It was immensely comforting to work with someone who clearly takes such great pride in the quality of her work. Diane truly exceeded our expectations, even in the more complicated parts of the process, and the final result was that we ended up in a home we absolutely love. I hope we get the opportunity in the future to recommend her personally to anyone looking to buy a home in this area.

Jason and Rich - West Orange

I was initially dreading the process of purchasing my first home. I really didn't know where to begin. Well, thank God I met Shawn Fox. He absolutely made the process a breeze, and added tremendous value above and beyond just the home purchase. Shawn constantly went the extra mile, and was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. I truly felt from the beginning that I could trust him, and that he had my best interests at heart. I could not have been any more pleased and impressed, and I would recommend his services to anyone. Thanks again Shawn for a wonderful job.

Matt - Parsippany

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all the hard work and effort you went through to help us buy our house. We really love the house, and you couldn't have found us a more perfect home! I know at times everything seemed to get a bit hectic and frustrating, but you handled everything professionally and reasonably, which, in turn relieved some of our stress. Please stop by and visit.

Lisa - Stanhope

Thank you so much for helping me to find and purchase my new townhome in Berkshire Hills. I really love it! Your professionalism and knowledge of the area where invaluable. As I said before, you pointed out things about the property that I would not have noticed or known to look for. I really appreciated all your advise.

Debra - Denville

Thank you for all the help you gave us in our home search. We found your friendly demeanor and super customer service a pleasant surprise during a very emotional time. It was very important to us to be informed throughout the process and you were always available. You found us the home that we wanted and did so by doing something that not many people do anymore - listen to us! Thanks again.

Kelly and John - Rockaway

I used Shawn & Diane Fox over the summer of 2016 to sell my Glenmont Commons townhouse. They went above and beyond throughout the entire process and were always available when any issues came up. I would be more than happy to use them again and would be happy to speak to anyone considering them for their own real estate needs.

Dan - Parsippany

Shawn Fox is not only one of the nicest people I've met, he is very knowledgeable, resourceful, attentive and professional. Most importantly, he is very patient and understanding of the sellers' concerns. I would HIGHLY recommend him to all home buyers and sellers!

Krishna - Parsippany

Shawn is one of the few Realtor "Rockstars" - and I've been in this business for 27 years. Hope I have the opportunity to refer more business to Shawn!

Gerri - North Palm Beach, Florida

Great Experience with Shawn. Condo sold quickly. Would recommend him highly.
