Call 2 or three window and door contractors in your area. If it is stock size your wait time will be less than if it needs to be made to order.

NWM is very right about the stock versus special-order thing though if your rough opening is odd sized not much you can do about that unless you are willing to tolerate the next smaller window size and VERY wide interior and exterior trim to cover up the oversized rough opening which has to be trimmed out to fi\t the smaller window/door.


Quickest response time - probably a Handyman or General Contractor who routinely works with realtors to do exactly this sort of pre-closing repairs - you could ask your realtor if he/she has one "on tap", or Search the List under Handymen (though just choosing one from a list sight-unseen you don't really know how good their work will be) or Remodeling - General Contractor.


If the window issue is jsut the glass (the window unit itself was acceptable to the buyer) then a Glass Replacement company is the one for that.


And on the door - if the doorframe was acceptable or just needs repainting and all you need is a new door itself, wood door blanks come in many sizes (assuming you mean wood) and can be cut down to fit, so a Handyman could probably handle that fine provided the frame is fairly aquare and in decent shape.
