Tell Us Your Story

Placing our home on the market was a big move, emotionally and financially.

Selecting an agent was even bigger. When "Happy Home Realty Team" Carol Ann and Wally walked through our door, I knew it was the right move. One that ultimately resulted in the move of our dreams. Throughout the nine month process, they were extremely hard working, professional, insightful, honest, fun to work with, and supportive! Once they were on board, it wasn't a question of "if", but rather "when". Coordinating an out of state move for our family of five wasn't easy, but from Montague to Maine, Carol Ann and Wally were with us every step and signature along the way! With gratitude, Tom & Kristin Dedham, ME

Hello, I'm emailing you in regards to our recently purchased home and the pleasure we had of working with Carol Ann and Wally.

When Ashley and I first began thinking about looking into buying a house, we weren't really sure where to start. A friend of ours recently bought a house and suggested their realtor. So soon enough, we had the pleasure of meeting with Carol Ann and Wally. Right away we felt very comfortable with them. They took a little information from us, what type of house we were looking for, size and location and all. They began searching for us and then started looking at a few. After looking at a few, they really began to realize what type of house we were looking for. There were a couple here and there we sort of liked. Then one day we looked at this one house we absolutely fell in love with right away. It was a little out of our price range though. We discussed this with them and they told us not to go out of our price range if we weren't comfortable with that. They suggested we bid real low and stay in our comfort zone. So we followed their instructions and soon enough our bid was accepted and still in our price range. We were so excited, we never thought they would come down that low on the price. Then the whole buying process started. We hit a few bumps on the way, but Carol Ann and Wally were always there to help. They were always there to answer our calls, text and emails. Anytime we needed them to make a call or send an email, they got right on that. They had our back 100% of the way throughout the whole process. They knew we were first time home buyers and helped to calm all the worries and jitters we had. They made this buying experience a whole lot easier on us and helped sooth out the whole process. Thank you, Bruce & Ashley Branchville NJ

Thank you Carol Ann!

I was anxious about putting my mother’s farm in Andover Township on the Market for sale. I expected that it would be a difficult and emotional process. Oh how wrong I was! Our Realtor, Carol Ann Skelenger, patiently took the time to explain, and helped me to understand (in a calm and kind way) what needed to be done and why. We ended up with multiple offers and again with Carol Ann’s professional guidance we chose to accept a wonderful offer that best suited our circumstances. We closed on the farm in November of 2019. After the farm was sold we hunted for a perfect Mother/Daughter home. It ook awhile but we found one. Again, Carol Ann went above and beyond. She calmed our fears by finding out details about the septic, the private road, the power lines etc. She made it all happen! We closed on our home in Blairstown in December of 2020 and will cherish it for many years to come. Thank you does not seem like enough to say. Jenny and Brian Blairstown, NJ

I can’t say enough about the service provided by Carolann and Wally in the recent sale of my lakefront home on Kemah Lake.

While “marooned” in Canada due to COVID I contacted them by phone with questions about putting my home for sale. Their response and support was amazing and left me without any hesitation in trusting them with the sale. They not only guided and informed me , but went as far as securing needed paperwork, and contacts where necessary. They were available for inspections and maintenance in my absence , never with hesitation, and always with a smile. I certainly highly recommend the service provided. Pam Dz

I am writing to sing the highest praises for Carol Ann Sklelenger and Wally Muller.

I contacted them late one evening in February 2019 in order to sell my mother's home in Branchville & heard back immediately! They met me at my mother's home the next day, answered every question and offered very helpful suggestions. I found them to be very sincere, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Throughout the entire process they were most accessible by phone, text and email, never once missing any detail. Their knowledge of Sussex County is a huge factor of their success. I met Carol Ann in 2009, she was my mother's agent when purchasing this house. The best move I made was hiring she & Wally again. They had several offers right away, a signed contract, crucial contacts for reliable contractors, closing within weeks. I highly recommend them for top notch service and felt compelled to let you know. Carol Ann Sklelenger and Wally Muller are wonderful assets of Weichert Realtors! Sincerely, Dorothy Augusta NJ

Catol Ann represented us in the sale of our home on Lake Owassa in Frankford Township. At the same time she also represented us in the purchase of or new home on Glencrest Drive in Hampton Township.

We knew she had many clients that she was dealing with, but she was always there when we needed her. She made us feel like we were the only clients she had! Bob and Sherry H. Hampton Twp

Dear Carol Ann, I want to take the time to thank you sincerely for your expertise, professionalism and patience during the time you maintained the listing and sale of our home.

Your focus on our needs and the attention you paid to our never ending questions no matter how silly they were (I say in retrospect) was very much appreciated Your expert knowledge of the market and its trends helped us agree on a price that would work in today’s market. That knowledge along with your strong work ethic, personal and professional integrity and great sense of humor led to a great working relationship. You returned every phone call and email quickly and made us feel like we might be your only client, providing a sense of confidence and security. I’ve already referred friends and family to you and do so with the utmost confidence that they will be pleased with above average commitment and customer service. Thank you so very much for everything, Sincerely, Lisa Stillwater NJ

Hello, I recently sold my mother's Sandyston Township home through Weichert's Happy Home Realtor Team (Carol Ann Skelenger and Wally Muller) and I want to express my heartfelt appreciation for the way this transaction was handled by these folks.

The recent death of my mother had us all saddened and being genuinely sincere and compassionate, Carol and Wally took time to explain each step along the way; continually mindful that I was going through a grieving process. They truly made it all very simple which helped me during a difficult time and for that I am grateful. Weichert is very fortunate to have such great professionals and equally wonderful people working for the company. I would not hesitate to recommended Carol and Wally to anyone. Respectfully, Michael H Randolph, NJ

Thanks to the efforts of Carol Ann we sold the house located at 37 Myrtle Ave.

, Branchville, NJ. We are very pleased with the service she provided. Whenever we needed someone to be present at the property for maintenance or inspections, she was always available. Otherwise it would have been very difficult for us since both my sister and myself were 45 minutes away. We very much appreciate her assistance and advice in this sale. Jim C

Dear Carol Ann, Thank you for all your hard work in selling out old house and for finding us our new place!

We are very happy here. The kids love the farm and we have had no problems here. The neighborhood is great and the kids got to stay in the Sandyston school system, which was estremely important to us. Thank you for all you did for us and helping us get the house we really wanted. You aren't just a "sales person", you have a knack for making a connection with people and forming a relationship with them. You were never ina a rush, always seemed to have time to talk with us and really listen to what we wanted. Keep up the good work and please keep in touch. Stop in whenever you are in the area.

To whom it may concern, I am writing to recommend Carol Ann Skelenger to you.

She is the best Real Estate Agent I have ever worked with. She is knowledgeable of all the laws and knows how to give your property the best possible exposure. Furthermore, she is always there when you need her. When I sold my home, at times I couldn't be home to meet an inspector or other official, Carol Ann was there for me. She is the epitome of professionalism and good sense. I recommend her without reservation. Dan R. Toms River NJ

01/20/2021 We just wanted to take a moment to thank CarolAnn and Wally who helped us with finding and purchasing our home.

We tried other realtors in the past and none were as kind and helpful as they were. Even with the loss of Wally, CarolAnn was the consumate professional. We have recommended her to our friends and acquaintances via social media. We had no idea what to look for in a house or how to select inspectors and they guided us through each phase of the process. We are forever grateful for our time with them as they helped us find our happy home. Thanks again to CarolAnn! She provided much insight and wisdom as we navigated the process. Best, Suzanne Hope NJ
