Let us help you find your dream home.
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!
I highly recommend Andrea for all your real estate needs. I am a former realtor myself, and a former resident of Massachusetts. I wanted to return to the area seasonally and worked with Andrea at finding the "perfect" house on a lake in the area. I found Andrea to be knowledgeable and focused on her real estate profession. She was always available to help and made the difficult task of remotely buying a house very easy for us. During negotiations I found her style very conducive to getting things done without angering others and so the real estate transaction closed on time and with all parties still feeling very positive about the others involved. She is one of the best!
We would definitely recommend Holly to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Western Mass. We are very picky people and refused to settle for anything less than our dream house. Holly worked tirelessly to understand our needs, share her extensive knowledge of the valley housing market, and of course show us house after house! When we did find the perfect property, Holly worked quickly and knowledgeably to make the purchase go smoothly, and at the price we wanted! Thank you, Holly!
The best review of all, she sold my home and quickly!
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.
We were looking for a unique farmable property in greater Western MA or Southern VT for about nine months. We dealt with several Realtors in sequence and with each, we were very specific about what we were interested in. We "dismissed" several as they simply continued to show us what they wanted and not what we wanted. We were thrilled to find Nancy as first and foremost a Realtor who "listened" as well as someone very knowledgeable about agriculture and the local farming communities. She was also terrific at ferreting out possible sales not yet listed. We bought our dream farm as Nancy was "on the job" as soon as it was listed. As people who have sold 5 and bought 4 places in the last several years, Nancy was a "no nonsense" delight to work with.
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.
Meghan McCormick is a dedicated professional who truly cares about her clients. She is patient and understanding. She pays close attention to details and goes the extra mile to make certain everything goes as smoothly as possible through each phase of the transaction
We were completely new to the area, so we relied on friends to point us in the right direction for house hunting. We had such glowing recommendations for Meghan McCormick from two business associate/friends that we couldn't look anywhere else.Meg was amazing. No, really, I believe she has super powers.She was organized, timely, and efficient. She was patient with me, having a 3-yr old in tow when I was not organized or efficient. Meg knows the area well and was very helpful in giving us suggestions. She took us to so many houses while we tried to figure out the style we were looking for here. She was knowledgeable about what to look for and always willing to crawl into the darkest crawl space to check things out. Her best characteristic is that Meg is honest, straightforward. You don't have to guess at what she is trying to say and you can count on her to be direct and truthful with you. This may seem like a given but I don't take it for granted and I appreciate that quality, especially in a real estate agent.One word: Fabulous
