I decided, after the death of my husband, that a move to central or western Massachusetts to be nearer my family would be a wise one. On a Saturday afternoon as I left my granddaughter's house I spotted a real estate office and decided to drop in and inquire about what might be available in the Northampton area. My inquiry was welcomed and I was shown to an office where I was shortly joined by a friendly and cheerful person by the name of Nancy Merritt. I explained my situation and the type of housing (a condo) that I had in mind. Nancy listened to my wishes and concerns and assured me that there would be something to fit my needs in my price range. The following day we met for an hour or so before I returned to my home in Pennsylvania. She was able to show me several units, gave me a tour of different communities to get a "feel" for what appealed to me as well as gave me a quick overview of the town, its amenities and surrounding villages. During the several weeks until my return Nancy kept in close touch with me, emailing photo tours of new places on the market and the necessary information to help me "see" what was available. On my next trip to Northampton Nancy had a list of everything that might appeal to me and we went looking. She was very much in tune to what I wanted and showed only those places that met my needs. When I made my decision to buy Nancy saw to every step toward the final closing, arranging necessary inspections, advising me on financial institutions to ease the process, and tips on reputable businesses that might be helpful to know.I sincerely recommend Nancy Merritt as a knowledgeable, competent and friendly salesperson to any one from within the Northampton area or relocating from afar!
Andrea Kwapien is one of the best Realtors I have had the pleasure of working with. Honest and hard working, she really cares for her clients and always puts forth an extra effort on their behalf to achieve results.
Holly was the listing agent for 36 Hillcrest Rd, Florence. This property was my deceased father’s home, and I am the executor. In addition to being a pleasure to work with, Holly is very competent and handled what was often a stressful situation gracefully and professionally.Holly came to our first meeting prepared with six comps: three recent sales and three current listings. Coincidentally, her recommended asking price was the same as the one I had in mind from the research I had done over the previous six months.While I had spent months preparing the house to be showable,” Holly made a few easy suggestions to further its appeal.Once listed, we received three offers, and Holly provided excellent advice on managing those and getting the best price. The next 6 weeks provided much drama... With each challenge, Holly was calm and professional, and effectively resolved the issue at hand. In addition, Holly was always available. While I live outside Boston, I still have connections with Northampton and I will highly recommend Holly to family and friends.
My wife, Kate, and I would like to pass along our experiences with our realtor, Holly Young, in our recent condo sale in Northampton.A few years prior we had put the unit up for sale and we chose Holly to be our realtor. We had met her at an open house and liked her very much. Holly got us a full price offer the first day. However, we then decided not to sell the unit. Rather than being upset or disappointed, Holly assured us that it was fine with her and that she understood. Thus this year when we decided to put our condo back on the market we contacted Holly. Over the years we have bought and sold properties in Massachusetts, Florida and North Carolina and thus have dealt with many realtors. Holly has been by far the best.She is extremely professional while adding a wonderful personal touch. She thinks ahead and anticipated everything we would need to get the sale closed. In fact she showed up for the smoke detector inspection by the fire department with an extra carbon monoxide detector in case the fire department wanted another CO detector installed. Holly navigated the sometimes choppy waters with the buyers' agent and the buyers in a truly professional yet firm matter.Words cannot express our thoughts properly but simply put she is the best. Some day we hope to be back living in Northampton. Rest assured Holly will be our realtor.
Andrea was first instrumental in helping us find a perfect rental property that met our family needs. A year later, we contacted Andrea to help us purchase a home. Her professional demeanor, cheerful disposition, knowledge of local real estate regulations and network of lawyers, painters, contractors and anyone else necessary for a smooth home purchase made the entire process stress-free. Andrea Kwapien is simply the best example of what you want in real estate agent. Do yourself a favor and call her first.
Nancy is the best! Smart, energetic, dependable--she knows the Valley and the hilltowns like the back of her hand. She has a wealth of information about local resources with the technical knowledge of a building contractor and the panache of an interior decorator. She made the task of selling our home of 20 years virtually painless and walked us through all the steps of buying another home with good humor and perpetual optimism. We couldn't be more pleased about the outcome, and we have Nancy to thank for getting us into our dream home!
Dear Nancy, Over the course of several years, Wendy and I came to know you through the numerous Open Houses where we encountered you--and we regularly came to your Open Houses because of your unusual ability to make your advertisements interesting, attractive, and accurate descriptions of what you were showing. Those years of getting to know you proved invaluable when we finally decided to buy our present home on Oak Street in Florence. We knew that we could rely on your assessment of the value of the property and the work that would be necessary to turn it into what we wanted. We also knew that the builder you recommended, John Zieminski, would be right for us, and that has turned out to be exactly the case.So, although it has taken us years of looking and, recently, months of hard work to get where we are now, we are finally here. And we are quite sure that without your help and guidance we would not be. We wish to thank you for all of this and we are especially happy that a real friendship has grown over the time involved. It is always a pleasure to chat with you, to exchange ideas, and to hear your suggestions about what we are doing.And--who knows--once we have unpacked completely, we may even keep up the tradition of coming to your Open Houses.
Listed my house located in Whately with Meghan. I was immediately leaving the state with my family, relocating to the mid west. I needed an agent who was willing to put in the extra footwork of finding repair people and being a local contact person to meet at the house when inspections or repairs were needed. Meg flawlessly took care of all that, while streamlining the long distance process of keeping me informed with all the details of repairs and of the sale. Not to to mention she painlessly negotiated to the exact asking price that I was hoping for. Meg meet and exceeded all my expectations. I was never disappointed with her service and dedication. I can honestly recommend Meghan McCormick to anyone looking for a genuine, well suited, local realtor.
