"Ally's professionalism, expertise, and genuine care for us were evident from our very first meeting."

"Ally's professionalism, expertise, and genuine care for us were evident from our very first meeting. She took the time to listen attentively to our concerns, ensuring that every step we took was tailored to what was best for us and being transparent throughout the entire process. Ally was there every step of the way, providing guidance and support that exceeded all expectations. What truly sets Ally apart is her unwavering dedication. She was always available to answer any questions we had, no matter how big or small, and her responsiveness was truly remarkable. Her attention to detail and commitment to excellence ensured that every aspect of the buying process was smooth and stress-free. Thanks to Ally's expertise and guidance, I not only bought the perfect home in Glen Rock but I also sold that same home for a fantastic price after renovating it extensively. I couldn't be happier with the outcome, and I have Ally to thank for making it all possible. If you're in the market for a realtor who truly cares about your needs and goes above and beyond to exceed your expectations, look no further than Ally Donoghue. She's not just a realtor; she's a true partner in your real estate journey. Thank you, Ally, for everything!"

"Ally was phenomenal! She was informative, thorough and super helpful."

"Ally was phenomenal! She was informative, thorough and super helpful. We bought a place sight unseen because we trusted her and her understanding of what we wanted wholeheartedly. Ally took the time to get to know us, our preferences and our comfortable price range - never trying to push us into something that didn’t fit. Her combination of patience and responsiveness was perfect for us as first time home buyers. We couldn’t recommend her more highly!"

"Working with Ally to buy our first home was an incredible experience! "

"Working with Ally to buy our first home was an incredible experience! Between relocating from California and moving to a new area we had never lived, she made the whole process so easy and stress-free! She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was able to help us find the best fit in Bergen County based on what we were looking for (and the best bagels!). She was able to get us under contract within two weeks of starting our search and supported us through every step of the process. We can't say enough good things about Ally and encourage anyone looking for a home in the area to work with her."

"Once we found the house she has provided us with the whole list of people we need: layers, mortgage brokers, builders, inspectors - you name it"

"We worked with Ally Simons and she is absolutely amazing. We found the house in the middle of pandemic, with more difficult access to see it, etc. Ally was extremely helpful with accommodating us, walking us around. Once we found the house she has provided us with the whole list of people we need: layers, mortgage brokers, builders, inspectors - you name it. It was the first time for us, so the process was a bit overwhelming, but with Ally's help it went smoothly. We would highly recommend her. She is very easy to talk to, very responsive and pleasure to work with. If we ever decide to go through this process again, will reach to Ally!"

"We would have been lost without Ally!"

"We would have been lost without Ally! She is incredibly knowledgable, patient, understanding, and sharp. What I love most about her though is her confidence- she helped us navigate these anxious home-buying times with ease. Never once did I doubt her advice (and I am highly indecisive!). Put your trust in Ally and you will be in the best hands!!! Ps she happens to also be the kindest - time spent with her was truly a delight. Thank you Ally!!!"

"We knew what we were looking for and she was extremely patient in helping us look at every possible house until we found “the one.” "

"Ally was the perfect agent for our family! We knew what we were looking for and she was extremely patient in helping us look at every possible house until we found “the one.” She gave her honest opinion of each house and its price. She’s very knowledgeable about Bergen County real estate and was always quick to answer all our questions. She was so helpful through the whole process - from house hunting to closing (and multiple negotiations in between). And, as a bonus, she was amazing with our two kids who can be a tough crowd. I highly recommend Ally for anyone looking for a new home!"

"If we ever need any real estate help we would definitely go to her again in the future."

"Ally was extremely helpful and guided us through the whole home buying process really well. She was available through text or email pretty much 24/7; she was the person we texted when we had any concerns or internal panic regarding the home buying process. If we ever need any real estate help we would definitely go to her again in the future."

"10/10 recommend Ally and the Gill Group. She was patient, knowledgeable and so responsive and took immediate action. No follow up needed! She is 100% in your corner and will guide you through what would normally be a very emotionally taxing thing. With Ally and the Gill group the concerns are removed because you know they are on it. I can’t say enough good things about this team!"

"Everyone in my family will be calling Ally for sure."

"How can I describe the professional person Ally has been thru this difficult transition. Selling ourhome of 24 years was stressful to say the least. As Someone who is in sales and owns a business I know we must have been daunting to work with. Her patience with us while aggressively promoting our best interest to the buyers won our hearts. She is well worth your time to speak with if you are planning to buy or sell like us. Everyone in her team has earn our respect. Everyone in my family planning on any real estate transaction will be calling Ally for sure."

"Laura and her group (esp Ally) are top-notch in the area."

"Laura and her group (esp Ally) are top notch in the area. They are professional, knowledgeable, and incredibly passionate about real estate. Our house sold quickly at a fair price, and the whole transaction was painless (well, except the moving part!). Laura had the house expertly staged and photographed which I feel really helped. Ally quickly got a feel of our tastes when looking at houses in the area, and didn’t waste our time. Highly recommend them. Go with Gill!"

"If I could rate Ally as 100 stars I would!"

"If I could rate Ally as 100 stars I would! I was nervous meeting a new realtor but Ally exceeded all our expectations and more! She is hands down the BEST and I would recommend her every time!"

David P.

"In less than a week we ended up with multiple offers and sold the house over asking."

"My wife and I listed our house with Ally after living in it for 40 years. What would have been an overwhelming experience was made so smooth due to the work of Ally and her team. From suggestions on decluttering, strategy on staging and pricing and timing of when to go to market, Ally was spot on and made our lives so much easier. Not to mention that we had already moved out of the area so we were able to rely on Ally and her team to handle any hurdles that came up. In less than a week we ended up with multiple offers and sold the house over asking. If you are considering selling your house, you would be making a mistake not to consider using Ally."

"Their marketing helped bring in a ton of interest in our house and we sold within days, well over the listing price."

"We had a great experience working with Ally in selling our home! She helped us through each step of the process. Ally gave us great advice and insights while we were prepping our home - saving us time and money, and she even helped with paint colors. She is very knowledgeable and the house was priced right. The Gill Group does a wonderful job marketing the listing and we were very impressed with how they ran the open house and managed the showings. Their marketing helped bring in a ton of interest in our house and we sold within days, well over the listing price. Ally was easy to work with and we appreciated her sound advice, encouragement and professionalism. We highly recommend her!"

Susan L.

"She took the time to get to know us and what we really wanted in a home."

"We worked with Ally to find a new home, as well as sell our previous home. Not only is Ally patient, as it took us about three years to find the perfect place, she took the time to get to know us and what we really wanted in a home. She didn’t push us into putting offers on houses she knew we didn’t love. When we finally found the one, she helped us negotiate and led us through every step of the process. As for selling our house, she took us through the steps of staging the house and pricing it using her detailed knowledge of comps in the area. I would recommend Ally for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Bergen county."

Lisa L.

"She guided us through the entire process and provided excellent suggestions that really boost the buyer interest in the home."

"Ally was awesome to work with. She was very knowledgeable, accommodating, well-spoken and easy to work with. We were very nervous about selling our home and slightly unsure about how to go about it. She guided us through the entire process and provided excellent suggestions that really boost the buyer interest in the home. She provided helpful tips on what we should do and what does not need to be done to prepare our home for the viewing. She took time to do the research for comparable homes and provided us with recommendation that was more realistic compared to our expectation. In the end, everything worked out great. We are so happy to have worked with Ally."

"Hiring Ally to sell your home is a decision you won't regret..."

"Ally is amazing! She knows the market and the current terms necessary to lock in deals. She treats you like a special client with her kindness, patience, responsiveness and attention to detail.

"Ally is an absolute star!"

"We were so lucky to work with Ally Donoghue on our recent home purchase. Ally is an absolute star! She first helped us look for a home to purchase in early 2020. As the pandemic started, we quickly shifted in March 2020 to look for a rental, which she rapidly found for us, despite all businesses basically being shut down. She then was our partner in our home buying search. Ultimately, we have purchased our absolute dream home! Working with Ally is seamless. She is incredibly knowledgeable, diligent, friendly, honest, flexible, responsive and insightful. Any homebuyer would be so fortunate to have Ally on their side!"

"GREAT COMMUNICATION. HONEST. RELIABLE."

"GREAT COMMUNICATION. HONEST. RELIABLE. My wife and I contacted Ally in early fall 2017 from a friend's recommendation. Since the beginning, she was always on top of everything and quick to respond. Ally was able to book viewings in fairly short notice, especially for some houses with multiple bids. We are first-time homebuyers, and we had many questions. Ally was very patient and explained to us the homebuying process clearly, and she always took time to answer our questions. Ally was very honest and didn't try to pressure us to buy. She would always point out problems or potential problems in houses, but she would also mention the really positive points such as things that make for good resale value. She was definitely very knowledgeable. She would share with us the quality of windows, house systems, and construction. Ally also listened to our preferences and incorporated them into the search. For example, one time after a few months of looking at houses, we had just finished viewing a house. We were discussing if we should put in an offer. We didn't love the house, but there were some strengths about it. And my wife tried to think about how this house could fit in with our preferences. Ally then reminded us that the house search is a process, and she was looking out for our best interests. Soon after, my wife realized that she was trying hard to settle with this house. Everytime we wanted to put in an offer, Ally would pull comparisons and share them with us so that we could make the best informed offer. Sometimes if a house had multiple bids, she would try to gauge where our offer stood among the pool. In June 2018, we closed on a home that we love... it's the perfect home for us. We really couldn't have done it without Ally! We had been told repeatedly that the real estate team Ally was a part of is excellent! People in the industry seem to know and respect them. And we understand why. We've been so glad to refer Ally to anyone looking for a house."

"She asked all the right questions and was able to share a lot of information on the town we were interested in."

"Our experience working with Ally was an absolute pleasure. We met over a year ago when we had called in on one of her team’s listings. By the time we had called, the home was already long gone. At that point, we began our search and immediately found a connection with Ally. She asked all the right questions and was able to share a lot of information on the town we were interested in. Ally showed us many homes along the way and stayed patient with us throughout as we changed focus during our search. Originally when we began, we were looking in Allendale only but decided to expand into some of the other surrounding towns. Good thing we did, as we found the perfect home for our family in Saddle River! We would highly recommend working with Ally. She was extremely professional, responsible and always had our best interest in mind, even when we encountered difficult situations. We will definitely recommend her and her team to anyone looking for a home in Bergen County!"

"You'll be very happy working with Ally and we can't recommend her enough."

"Ally is the ultimate agent and if you're considering buying a house or making a change to your current representation, then look no further. Ally helped us purchase our forever home in just a few months of working together (which is tough in this market). When we had questions, she either knew or found the answers (but usually knew), and she was instrumental in helping us get to the closing table. Ally has been incredible even after the close, helping connect us to different business we'll need to care for our home. You'll be very happy working with Ally and we can't recommend her enough."

"Her knowledge of the ever changing real estate market was so helpful throughout the process."

"I worked with Ally Simons on my recent home sale and she was the best! Her knowledge of the ever changing real estate market was so helpful throughout the process. Ally was an asset from the first day we met and even after the closing. I can't wait to work with her again...finding my next home! Everyone at the Laura Gill Group was exceptional. From suggestions on repairs, staging for pictures, constant communication, the only way to go - Go With Gill and Ally!!! Thank you again for all your hard work!!!!"

"We couldn't be happier with the level of service we got from Ally!"

"We couldn't be happier with the level of service we got from Ally! She helped guide two complete newbies through the entire process from start to finish and we always felt like we were in good hands. Not having a super high budget easily could have meant that we received less attention, but that was never the case with Ally. She was always reachable, responded immediately, and worked quickly to keep the process moving. I was endlessly impressed by her responsiveness and quick action. Looking for and buying a house could have been extremely stressful, but it wasn't because of Ally. If you're looking for an expert in the area who will help and support you, and also make you feel at ease when you're stressed, choose Ally!"

She is full of energy and a wealth of information about the different towns and school systems. Ally was always available for appointments to see homes and was a ton of help as we made an offer and purchased our new home. We highly recommend Ally; her service was above and beyond!"

"Ally's patience won our hearts."

"Ally made the selling of our home a very easy process. From our first meeting, to the day of our closing, she communicated every step that would happen and followed through with detailed explanations. Her stagers came in and effortlessly transformed our home into an inviting showpiece! Ally's comprehensive knowledge of the Allendale, NJ selling market was spot on. She marketed and priced the home in a way that highlighted its desirability and guaranteed many showings. As each offer came through, she clearly communicated the nuances of each and helped us achieve the absolute best deal. I would highly recommend Ally to anyone looking to hire a realtor."

"You need to work with Ally to guide you through the home buying (or selling) process!"

"You need to work with Ally to guide you through the home buying (or selling) process! There are so many reasons why you should work with Ally, but it really all comes down to her honesty. We were first time home buyers and needed a lot of hand holding and guidance. She never pressured us into something that was not the right fit and always gave us sound advice. We knew we could trust her and she was so relatable. When looking to buy a house, you need to trust your realtor! It’s most likely the biggest purchase of your life. She gets the market and really works to understands the unique position of each of her clients. I can’t recommend Ally enough. You won’t regret working with her!"
