It is our immense pleasure to write this recommendation for Doris Dirks. Doris is an exceptional agent, and also importantly through this process, has become a wonderful friend to our family since our introduction when looking for our first home nine years ago. Her guidance, experience and support were instrumental in helping us purchase our first home and when we began looking for our second home a number of years ago we knew we wanted to have Doris by our side. While the search for our second home has been extensive and took longer than anticipated, Doris never wavered from her dedication to our family, always being a professional, caring and patient partner throughout the process. Doris is not only extremely intelligent, intuitive and effective, but she is also committed to identifying the needs of her clients while consistently offering an honest and straightforward opinion whether specific to a property of transaction. Doris’ goal was always to ensure that when we found the perfect property, we were in the best position to move forward, appropriately counseled and comfortable in all aspects of the purchase. Finding our dream property took four years and Doris was there alongside us every step of the way. We really couldn’t have gotten through this journey without her and we feel truly grateful to have had her by our side and are honored to be able to call her a lifelong family friend.

It is my pleasure to take this opportunity to write the following letter of recommendation on behalf of Doris Dirks.  I have known Doris for over 20 years and have been fortunate enough to have had her assist me in several real estate transaction during this time. She knows her business inside and out and her experience and expertise shine through all she does. In the business word, we all hope to find the perfect combination of professionalism, personality and integrity, perfectly balanced by an enthusiasm for the hard work it takes to get the job done right. It is rare to find all of these qualities in one person; but they describe perfectly who Doris Dirks is both as a person and as a Realtor.

In order to generate the success that people expect in the real estate industry; there is another quality that is vital during these difficult economic times. Perseverance. I have come to know and greatly appreciate all of these qualities in Doris Dirks both as a Realtor and as a friend.

When times are tough and the real estate market is adversely affected such as it has been lately; a person’s true nature comes forth and the test for quality becomes even tougher. It has been during these times that I have really come to admire the qualities that Doris carries with her in all she does.  She is consistent in her exceptional professionalism and her smile comes from a genuine heart that wants to help people through what can often be a very emotional transaction as they move from one home to another. As a Realtor, she cannot be duplicated.
