Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We met Nancy while looking at a house she had as a listing. After seeing the house and speaking with her, we decided to buy it, but before we could, we had to sell 2 condos that we owned. We had put one of them on the market before we met her, and the agent we had did nothing with it. We had Nancy take the listing over, and she sold it in about 1 week. Then, when we put our other unit on the market with her, that one sold in just a few weeks. She has a great personality and is very straight forward and knowledgeable. We would recommend Nancy to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. She'll work with you to get the results you want.

We met Nancy Merritt in March of 2005 and we quickly became friends, so much so that we invited her to our Wedding in July. Nancy had a real challenge when she became our Realtor. We had a very hard time finding a home, in my husband's terms, "in his Comfort Zone". Nancy went over and beyond what any Realtor would do in a case as tough as ours, but she stuck with us and found us our dream home, which we purchased in December 2005. Then she had the task of selling our home which she also accomplished one week before Christmas. What a Christmas present that was!!! The difference that Nancy makes is that she loves what she does and honestly cares about her clients. She listens to what you want and makes sure that you are truly happy in your choice. She is also a great sounding board. Nancy is an extremely hard worker and handles every detail no matter how minor or major that is thrown into the mix. She never seems to miss a beat. She has an extreme range of knowledge from septic systems to wiring to chimneys and if she does not know something, she finds her answer in a very short amount of time. She has an unlimited source of contacts. Once you have given your property to Nancy you never have to worry about a thing. She handles everything from listing your property to closing the sale. You're in the best hands you could ever hope to be in with Nancy Merritt NANCY IS PRICELESS

Nancy Merritt has been my Realtor and friend since 1993. She spent many hours giving me an extensive tour of practically every condominium in Northampton in 1993 to help me come to a decision about where I wanted to live. She also sold one of my homes in Plainfield in 1993, and then again sold my Northampton condo some years later when I was moving to Brooklyn, NY. Both sales were very satisfactory for both the buyers and myself. When I decided to return to Northampton last spring, I went straight to Nancy, knowing that she would find the right place for me to live. For Nancy quickly knows her clients' needs and tastes, and she is most concerned that one finds the place in which one will be most comfortable and happy. She is a wealth of information about plumbers, electricians, and all the other helpers that one may need when faced with a new property, and all calls of distress were responded to with calmness and a solution. I highly recommend Nancy to anyone who is either selling or buying. Her knowledge is priceless.

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.

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!

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!

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.
