Bill and Jeannette Davis (Seller)
Fareen Effendi was one of several realtors we interviewed before listing our home. Following a personal interview we called Fareen and told her “you have sold yourself, can you sell our home?” We had a meeting with Fareen, expressed our desires and concerns and she then developed a marketing plan that led to a sale within ten days. Fareen was there for us. We think the greatest thing we can say about Fareen is “now that the sale and closing are behind us, Fareen is a friend.”
Bonnie Degolia (Seller)
I first contacted Fareen and was very impressed with her energy and enthusiastic response to my questions. We had her come to our home and was very impressed with her knowledge of the reality comparisons in our area Fareen walked us through the selling process, with some unique tools of her own. Fareen was from our first visit a very personable and knowledgable agent. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
Marcia G. (Client, Seller and Buyer)

She is very professional yet she treated me like family. It was obvious she had my best interests at heart. I HIGHLY recommend Fareen Effendi for all of your real estate needs and questions!!!
Erin and Ian (Clients, Buyers)
Fareen embodies service. She was very responsive and made us feel like we were her only clients. As first time home buyers, she guided us through the process with her wisdom and experience. Her enthusiasm made us feel how much she cared - we didn’t feel like we were just another customer. As we toured homes, she gave us her opinions about each property, but wasn’t pushy. When it came to the business of the sale, Fareen knew her stuff. She calmly navigated her way around tricky situations, she listened to our input, and she delivered. We could trust that she would get things done and do it right. Even after the sale, Fareen has been fantastic. She has recommended so many great service people to us and their work has been top notch. We love our new home, and it was a truly wonderful experience thanks to Fareen. We would sincerely recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone with real estate needs!

R.C. Thomas Jr. (Client, Seller)
Fareen was very helpful in selling our Condo in only 4 days. She designed and published an Excellent brochure describing our Condo. She responded immediately to such things as dealing with the buyer concerning perceived problems found by the building inspector, setting a selling price and negotionating with the eventual buyer. She was very easy and pleasant to work with.
Daniel and Sarita Coffman (Clients, Buyers)
We figured moving from Missouri to Michigan would be taxing, but Fareen was instrumental in making our move as effortless as possible. When we had questions, she was there, right at our fingertips with an answer for us. When inspections needed to be set up, she had a vast network at her hands to find just the right professional to meet our needs. In Fareen, we found not only an outstanding realtor truly dedicated to her clients, but a lifelong friend.
Curt and Monica S. (Clients, Buyers)
As first time home buyers, my husband and I had many questions about how to start looking for homes, and the home buying process. Fareen proved to be a wealth of knowledge and expertise throughout the entire process. Not only does she ensure that your questions and concerns have been fully addressed, she also makes herself exceptionally accessible. There was never a time that we could not contact her with a question or request. We had relatively specific area and criteria in the house that we were looking for and Fareen was diligent in making sure that we were aware of new home listings and provided us with prompt viewings of homes when we came across potential houses. When we found "our house" and decided to make an offer, Fareen continued to impress. She guided us through the entire process, start to finish. At inspection time we worked with inspectors that she has built professional relationships with and found them to be equally thorough, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Fareen exceeded all of our expectations and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is not only an outstanding Realtor with her clients needs genuinely at forefront, she has proven to be wonderful friend. My family and I feel so fortunate to have had the pleasure of working with Fareen!

Whether youre a first timer like me or someone with a little more experience, Fareen is your lady!
Dean Sparkman (Client, Buyer)
Fareen Effendi assisted myself and my daughter during a very difficult time in our lives. We did not have much time to find and purchase a home. Fareen guided us every step of the way. She could not have been more helpful, it fact; she made buying a home enjoyable and stress free.
Julie Gruber (Client, Buyer)
Fareen goes far and above what one might expect in terms of personal attention and genuine care for her clients. She is extraordinarily dedicated in the ways that matter most---making her clients happy and helping them find the home that's right for THEM. She is absolutely amazing, personable and has her clients' best interest at heart through every step in the home-buying process. I recommend her wholeheartedly and with great enthusiasm.
John Bond (Client, Buyer)
Fareen has several great qualities that highly successful people have; vibrant personality, intense knowledge & prep, works hard and she cares a lot. A total professional!
RB Wheeler (Client, Sellers)
Fareen was extremely helpful with selling our home. Since we lived out of state she provided recommendations and over seen work that needed to be done. Fareen kept us up to date on every detail from beginning to end and kept a positive attitude. She truly cares about her clients.
JM Black (Client, Seller and Buyer)
We have been very happy teaming-up with Fareen and how positive and caring she is when it comes to her business and her understanding of the market, she is right at the top! Having Fareen on your team is a plus!!!
M Duprey (Client, Seller)
Fareen is one of the most creative realtors in the Kalamazoo area. She knows her stuff and if she needs to go digging for an answer, she knows where to get it. I’ve seen her go to bat for her clients and when listing a home she does it in a way that really grabs people’s attention. You’ll notice it from the minute you meet her – she cares about her clients and loves what she does. This totally comes across in her unique approach from the start. I highly recommend working with Fareen.
Jonathan Carbutti
I have known many real estate agents over the years and with all confidence can say that Fareen brings a level of diligence, passion and competency that is second to none! As a client I have experienced her continued commitment to excellence and getting the job done. If you are thinking about selling or buying in the Greater Kalamazoo area you will not find a more genuine and sincere real estate expert that truly has your best interests at heart!
John McMillan (Business Owner)
I own a marketing company that works primarily with real estate agents. When we were looking for a writer a few years ago we needed someone who could write and understood the real estate markets of the US. Fareen was exactly the person we were looking for. She is hard working, organized and very knowledgeable about real estate. She has been a big part of our business more than doubling in the past couple years. Fareen would be a great choice as your agent and I personally recommend her work ethic and knowledge!
Sophie M.
I have had the opportunity to work with Fareen on a number of projects in the past and do not doubt that she will be highly successful in any endeavor she decides to undertake. She has an exceptional eye for detail and a passion and commitment to deliver the best value to her clients. You will find that she makes an extra effort to understand your unique needs and how to best meet them, never stopping until she is certain she has a truly satisfied client. I recommend her without hesitation and would count myself as fortunate to have her eye and her expertise on my side when considering buying a home.
