She went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly for me and my family with selling our home of 20yrs and then buying our new home to love and grow and make many more memories. There was a lot of twist and turns with the selling of our old home and buying our new home. But Kelly got us through it and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else by our side to help us along the way ❤
She took her years of expertise and really dedicated herself to making sure we had the best experience. Her profound patience and willingness to walk us through all parts of the process truly an asset. Kelly didn't push us, she kept finding places for us to view until it was the right fit. Kelly helped us difficult first time buyers lock in our home.
She set up a timeline for us to be sure we would have enough time to sell, buy, and transition our kids into new schools just in time! She also helped to set us up with a great agent for the new area in which we were looking to purchase our new home! I highly recommend working with Sara!!
She worked within our budget and helped us find our family home very quickly. I highly recommend Olivia as a buyer's agent...She was fantastic!
She has gone above and beyond many times for me and has lead me and my family to a great place to live. I would 100% recommend her to anyone that is looking to find there forever home.
Kristen is everything we could have hoped for in a real estate agent!
Excellent communication throughout the whole process. Would highly recommend.
She is a top notch professional who truly understands changing markets, negotiation skills, and always goes above and beyond for her clients. She is 100% someone I would trust personally and professionally to help me navigate the home search and buying process.
Even through very stressful, unpredictable issues out of our control, she went ABOVE and BEYOND her duties as a realtor from the moment we met her and even after we bought our home. We didn’t know where to start, but Jean walked us through every step. She is fierce, dedicated to her clients and motivated! Jean doesn’t try and just sell houses. She helps you find a home. Jean was open and honest when entering homes with us. She didn’t try and upsell a home she didn’t believe was a good fit for us. Thank you so much Jean.
As a first time home buyer, I was nervous and full of questions and really wanted to work with someone who could match my energy and “go-getter” attitude. April responded to my message within minutes and we were on the phone chatting within the hour. I decided to hire April because she was straight forward and honest from the start. She explained that she will always have my best interest at heart and will never walk through a property with me and only point out the “positives”. She talked a lot about how important it is to understand the “negatives” when purchasing a home. With each home we looked at I was more and more impressed with her honesty. From early morning phone calls over coffee to late night texts while laying in bed, April ALWAYS made time for me. She listened to my questions and concerns and I felt like she truly understood what my goals were and she was determined to get me there. In addition to being a fantastic and reliable realtor, April was extremely knowledgeable about the Mortgage Lending process and made sure I knew all of the important questions to ask my lender. In less than 30 days, April showed me multiple properties until 5/16/2020 when we both fell in love with what is now my forever home. She had an offer typed up and sent to the selling agent within an hour of my decision to offer. Once the offer was accepted, April checked in with me several times throughout the following weeks and worked diligently with the selling agent to speed up the closing date. Her work didn’t end there....after the closing on 6/23/2020, April continued to check in with me up through moving day!! I am beyond grateful for the integrity, dedication, and professionalism. I would highly recommend April to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Not only was she the absolute best realtor with motivation and drive, she was a hard working woman with a heart of gold who I have grown to love and respect. Give April a call for any/all of your home buying/selling needs. You will not be disappointed! Thank you for everything, April!"
She responds in a very timely manner. Answers all of your questions. Explains everything thoroughly and is very personable. Highly recommended.
She is responsive, has relationships in the community and is willing to work with you to find what you need. We really appreciated working with her.
Olivia was very helpful and patient with us during these trying times. We cannot recommend her enough.
April Cover came in with the highest list price and a great deal of confidence, so naturally, we decided to go with her. I am so glad that we did. Our home sold within a couple of days at her suggested list price, which was 38k more than we were originally told it would sell for! April also helped us purchase our new home. Our transition from one home to the other was seamless thanks to April. She was able to coordinate back-to-back closings for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
I couldn't possibly be happier. I recommend her to anyone I meet that needs a Realtor.
Always on top of the deal, involved, and her commitment to her clients is unparalleled.
She is reliable and honest and very very helpful. I have referred her many times 5 Stars for sure"
She knows her stuff. The house we selected was being renovated on our visits. At first, it wasn't complete enough to make an offer. Kara showed us some other homes in the area. Not a single one felt right. We visited the first house again and decided to make an offer. Kara handled everything. Some things were complicated, however she breezed right through and knew what to do. She got the right guy for home inspection, he was thorough. There were delays with the sellers, but Kara was very encouraging and kept us up to date. She has the patience and knowledge to see the job through. When it came time to purchase and sign, it all went so smooth. Again, Kara had the right guy for the job! We are very happy in our home and we would recommend Kara Labonte as your realtor. Thanks again Kara!!!
Jean made the whole selling process easy and stress-free. She helped me with whatever I needed and made sure my interests were valued by the buyer. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a no nonsense, protective realtor that wants to get you what you deserve.
Excellent communication, negotiations, and follow through between the sellers and myself. I highly recommend Sara Lyman
April is dedicated, hardworking and honest. I highly recommend her to be your agent."
She is great. So many happy clients"
She went above and beyond throughout the entirely stressful and ever changing market out there nowadays. She was there comforting me when offers fell through and coaching me through all the legalities of every rule and regulation. I may be a little biased being her cousin but she's honestly the most hardworking professional to make it through this crazy housing market with. I just couldn't think of a better Realtor that devotes their time and energy to finding the perfect home for each one of her clients than Olivia!
When we were looking to sell our home a few years ago we reached out to Sara and were thrilled that we did. Our situation was unique, our home was considered to be in a flood zone, which was in our mind ridiculous and cost us thousands of dollars in insurance premiums every year. We were concerned that our house wouldn’t sell once potential buyers were made aware of the outrageous insurance premiums that would come along with owning that home. Sara was very diligent; she did the research and when all was said and done, she had our home reclassified so the new buyers would NOT have to pay for flood insurance. We were absolutely amazed!! So, when we came across a home we wanted to look at in October there was no question who we would call. Without a doubt it would be Sara! We loved the house and she helped us to quickly get pre-approved and provided several options to make sure our offer was aggressive enough to be considered and ultimately accepted. We are thrilled that in a few short weeks we will be moving into our new home and selling our current home all thanks so the best realtor in our area!! Thank you, Sara…we truly appreciate all that you do for your clients!
She was on top of everything and always one step ahead. If you’re looking for a real estate agent, look no further! Highly recommend!
The entire process went so smooth with literally no 'bumps'. April handled everything professionally and stress-free. Her communication was top notch and we thank her so much. We could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you, April!!"
We are grateful for all the hard work and especially for how much she truly cares. Definitely recommend. Thank you so much April!!"
She is a true professional in real estate, as well as an amazing genuine person. The experience that she provides her clients going above and beyond for them is extraordinary. She is truly there with you every step of the way, doing all that she can to make everything come together. And even after closing, she continues to find ways to reach out and make you feel special. So do yourself a favor and call Sara Lyman for all your real estate needs. You cannot find the value that she brings to the table anywhere else.
Being first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and a lot to learn. April went the extra mile and walked us through the process start to finish, answering any and all questions we had. She was honest and transparent with us, even when it wasn’t necessarily something we wanted to hear. I can’t thank April enough for all her help during a crazy, stressful process! Highly recommend ☺️"
!! April Cover has the best work ethics, honesty, and integrity. You can’t go wrong with her on your side, my husband and I HIGHLY recommend April Cover"
She is very knowledgeable and is very easy to work with. A+++++"
she kind, and she helps you through the process of selling or buying a home, If you have and questions she is always there to answer them. she really knows her houses. When things start to go south she us right there to turn everything around! love her!
...... we were selling and April walked us entirely through the process.... the ups, the downs and kept me in check. She’s all about her client's BEST INTEREST!!! Best and only one I’ve ever worked with ........ we were the first sale of her career and 10yrs later sold through her what an experience.....truly amazing"
She was very flexible with all of our meetings, accommodating my needs of when/where to meet. She was clear and straightforward with the process and plan to list my house and accommodated my tight timeline for when to schedule showings. The photographer she works with took fantastic shots and the listing description was perfect! It's no wonder that within 24 hours of the first showing, we had 5 offers on the house! From start to finish (and throughout hoops and snags on my buyers' part) Olivia was positive, helpful and responsive. I never felt like I was out of the loop, in the dark or like an outsider on the team. Definitely recommend!
We even made the lady work on Sundays and she was a trooper! If we sell again/buy she's our lady!
When my mom was downsizing from our family house she needed help so she called a realtor. Very nice however things just didn't fit right. After some time (my mom gives everyone a fair chance) she got a referral to call Sara Lyman. WOAH! Instant difference! Sara knows her stuff! Her knowledge and experience was what my mom really needed for both selling and house hunting. Sara was always quick with responding to all parties. She was clear with information and always made sure my mom fully understood and saw all aspects. It gave a lot of comfort and confidence in making the right decisions. Sara always had a positive and focused energy that was refreshing and greatly needed during the tedious process. Since then she has helped me make my first real estate purchase that I couldn't be happier with! Sara is a true genuine person and is amazing at her at her job!
I had the absolute honor of working with Kristen and had the most amazing brand new house that I could ever imagine, not to mention in a great location as well! I promise you that if you are looking for a beautiful home in the Athol area for a reasonable price, Kristen will not let you down. I can not be any more thankful for what her and everyone at Dodge Contracting put together for my new home, and i would not want it any other way!
VERY responsive throughout the entire process (even when she was on a family vacation and I told her not to reply until she got back ?) and made sure that everything stayed on track. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. She made selling our home and buying our new home seem easy as though it didn’t take any work on her part. That’s a feat considering everything she did have to do.
She plays an active role in transaction from the beginning to end making sure that everything is happening the way it should and in a timely manner. I've worked with her on multiple transactions and she consistently is a pleasure to work with.
She was able to get an offer above asking price after a few months of no interest with another real estate company. More recently, she helped us sell our 2 houses in order for us to purchase our dream home. (3 transactions finalized all within a month of each other). She is responsive, knowledgeable and helped us every step of the way. Through some ups and downs, she helped us navigate the selling and buying process with ease. I highly recommend Olivia as your future real estate agent. She will work to get you offers on your home and help you into your dream home!
She made our home selling experience as stress free as possible. We enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable trustworthy real estate agent.
We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy their forever home.
She helped us purchase our very first home in Athol, and we found her expertise invaluable! She is very knowledgeable, honest, straight forward, reliable, not in the least bit pushy and is a pleasure to work with. Jean combined her understanding of our desired home features with her knowledge of the towns we were looking into, the neighborhoods, schools and acreage. She stuck by our side as we viewed many homes. Jean had a lot of knowledge on each home we looked at pointing out things we did and did not see. Once we found a property that we wanted to put an offer on, Jean diligently helped us review the property's disclosures, made sure we knew what the property did and did not have to offer, and skillfully negotiated the contract on our behalf. Our offer ended up getting accepted and we closed within an expected time. During the whole process, we were constantly impressed by Jean's responsiveness, honesty, attention to details, and thoroughness. She remained accessible (24 hours!) and continuously provided support for us after we moved in. We are confident that we can always reach out to Jean for help, and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home!"
Sara priced our home competitively and aggressively marketed our home to bring in buyers. She is responsive- replying to emails quickly. Hardworking is an understatement- Sara took calls on vacation, on weekends, and even on her daughter’s birthday! We strongly feel that if anyone other than Sara represented us, we would not have received the best offer. Thank you Sara!
Professional, punctual, and outstanding communication! Sold my house for 10K over asking! Would definitely use her again!"
If I ever decide to sell and buy again I will definitely use her as a realtor again.
! I could go on and on about this woman she is def agent of the year no doubt in my mind!
Sara has been my realtor on multiple sales now and I truly wouldn’t consider doing business with someone else. She is always available to answer a phone call, text message and email whenever she is needed (and I’m needy). Her knowledge keeps you comfortable and at ease throughout the process while the communication keeps you up to date and always aware as to what is the next step. Sara is the best of the best and I appreciate all of her help and without a doubt will use her services again when I look for my next home!
She always goes above and beyond for her clients and her knowledge of the real estate market is unmatched. I would recommend Olivia to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
My Fiancé Found Kristen and I am so glad she did. Kristen made this process go much smoother than I had anticipated. All questions we had she either had the answer or dug into getting the answers. Kristen was very quick to respond to anything we needed.
She was patient with us seeing many houses until we found the perfect one. She encouraged us to look at a house that didn’t look perfect for us on paper which turned out to be our forever home. She is amazing and exceptional at her job.
She is detail oriented, listens and understands your needs, and treats every client like they are family. I have referred Sara to my closest friends, who also had amazing experiences. She is also incredibly involved in local charities and supports local business. Did I mention she is also just a really nice person? I highly recommend using Sara if you want a real estate expert who will be transparent, understand what you need, and guide you in the right direction.
Kristen was highly recommended by our friends and family. I remember the day Kristen called me - I was hiking up a mountain after work. We talked on the phone for almost an hour as if we were friends from years ago. I had zero knowledge on the home buying process and she patiently answered all of my questions. She treated my family as if they were her own. She was eager to get us into a home before the holidays, continuously doing her research, finding beautiful homes for us to tour, and always assuring us that the right one would come along. Eventually, the right house came along and she made it a wonderful experience. She is an incredible woman who has put her heart into what she's doing. I will forever recommend any friends and family to Kristen.
She communicated with us throughout the entire process. Sara is professional, and very knowledgeable of the market. She is easy, fun to work with, and love her personality. I love that we can still call her anytime with any property questions, and she responds immediately. Highly recommend you give her a call.
She did not disappoint! Her experience, attention to detail, and ability to translate my dreams into locating my dream house continues to provide me joy. She is a spectacular Realtor.
Sara Lyman and her team did a great job guiding us through the selling process as well as being diligent in helping secure our new home! Great job and very invested in your success.
Jean has been my realtor for years selling two properties for me in record time. Always goes above and beyond to get whatever needs to be done, to make the transaction easy for me. Very professional, detail oriented, and gets the job done. I would never use anyone but Jean! Verified by RateMyAgent
She was there for my family at every step of the sales process and helped us secure an offer far above our asking price. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
As a first-time seller, I really had no idea what to expect and April was there to patiently guide me through every step along the way. Selling a home can be overwhelming for the seller, but April’s no-nonsense, get-it-done attitude combined with her experience, person-ability, and professionalism almost immediately put my mind at ease. April goes above and beyond for her clients… she knows her stuff, and I will be certain to recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch realtor!"
She is professional, responsive and fun to work with, making the home buying process much more enjoyable! Kristen, I hope you read this and know that you are appreciated...until next time!
She greeted us so professionally and also started explaining the selling process with us. I do recommend everyone to join the Hometown team And have Mrs. Dodge help sell your home!!!
She was always personable, always on time for every appointment, and gave us practical and helpful advice that eventually got us into our dream home. Buying a home during the height of Covid certainly presented its challenges, but Olivia made the process as smooth and efficient as possible. Highly recommend Olivia!
She is very knowledgeable of the home sale process and made sure things went smoothly.
After a very rapid response with matching us with an agent, we were teamed up with the ever amazing Kelly LaGrassa. Her enthusiasm was inspiring. Right from the get-go she was finding listings that fit our vision for the ideal home. And if a home ever went higher than we were comfortable spending, she was always understanding and encouraging. Kelly was always working to get the job done. She always took the initiative and kept digging for us. Even on our closing day she was more than eager to assist us with securing a moving truck. I highly recommend Kelly LaGrassa and the Hometown Realtors team.
She listened to all of our needs and wants and she was open and honest about the process. She was always available to answer questions, and we had a lot of them! There were times when we were hoping for a different answer but she was always honest even when it was bad news. She genuinely wanted to make sure we were not surprised or getting into a bad situation. She is very knowledgeable, I'm pretty sure she even predicted the exact price the house would appraise at just by driving by the home. She knows her stuff. When it came time to start closing, she gave us a list of to-do's and constantly checked to make sure we were all set. I don't know what we would have done without her. We truly appreciate her making the process so smooth."
I was so lucky to have gotten in touch with Olivia. Not only was she professional, responsive and knowledgeable, she helped me navigate through the process and calmed my nerves and always made me feel at ease. She was always there to answer any question, went above and beyond to help me get repairs fixed, and always had the sweetest and more kind attitude. Truly a valued asset of the North Quabbin Community. I'll recommend her to anyone, every time!
Kelly is super knowledgeable, responsive and makes the process stress free. She is 100% dedicated to your needs and goes above and beyond to help guide you through all aspects of the home buying/selling process. I can’t say enough about her professionalism and caring for her clients. If you’re looking for someone to help with your real estate needs look no further. Kelly is one of the best out there.
She exemplified herself not only as my buyer agent, but recommended Total Mortgage personnel (Katie) who took me through the loan section of the process with ease and precision. Kelly also went out of her way to recommend inspection personnel who did a wonderful job and inspecting the house with detailed work ethics. What melt my heart was when I was hit with COVID 19 in Ghana and was expected to close the house on September1, but couldn't travel due to the positive COVID 19 test, Kelly facilitated with the team and Attorneys to ensure an extension to September 8th when I recovered within 5 days and returned safely home to the US. She checked up on me on daily basis on my health, which is completely outside the bounds of her profession. She was human exhibited her human nature in diverse ways during and after the deal was closed. I strongly recommend Kelly of Hometown Mortgage in Athol as an extraordinary buyer agent to any potential and existing home buyers out there. You will not regret, you engaged Kellys services.
Kara gives you 100% of her Realtor knowledge and services. I would recommend her for her integrity and willingness as representing a buyer or seller!
Jean Rubin had a marketing plan from the first day I met with her. She came well prepared."
Kristen is the most friendly, which was a plus during stressful moments! Would highly recommend!
Her assistance had taken place during the onset of the COVID 19 epidemic, February early March of 2020. As one could imagine, this period of time was extremely concerning and confusing as new policies and local town restrictions were mandated. New protocols were aggressively followed and our home was sold VERY quickly. Kristen was made herself readably to us, as she was prompt, knowledgeable and most professional. If you are considering selling or purchasing a home she'll be there every step of the way.
She managed the purchase and sale of both our personal and commercial properties. Then she sold a vacant land parcel for us and our 2 - family property. Each transaction with her is seamless and all have been consistent with excellent communication and professionalism. Her way of doing business is very professional, prompt and informative. She is a very thorough and experienced realtor. Highly recommended!!
