Buyer

My husband and I were purchasing a house in the Berkshires while still living in Chicago. We are both first-time buyers and were fairly clueless about the process as well as about the area (our only criterion was that the house would be within 20 min driving distance from my future job). Tanya was a real delight to work with. She talked us through the basics of purchasing a house over the phone and we scheduled a weekend to see some houses. Tanya had the showings all lined up before we flew in. She blocked off the weekend and took us around different properties both days, so no time was wasted. She gave us lots of insider tips about the area, different properties, and things to watch out for, which was really helpful for the city dwellers moving to the country. After the showings, Tanya followed up with a couple of sellers' agents to obtain additional information which we requested. We t…

My husband and I were purchasing a house in the Berkshires while still living in Chicago. We are both first-time buyers and were fairly clueless about the process as well as about the area (our only criterion was that the house would be within 20 min driving distance from my future job). Tanya was a real delight to work with. She talked us through the basics of purchasing a house over the phone and we scheduled a weekend to see some houses. Tanya had the showings all lined up before we flew in. She blocked off the weekend and took us around different properties both days, so no time was wasted. She gave us lots of insider tips about the area, different properties, and things to watch out for, which was really helpful for the city dwellers moving to the country. After the showings, Tanya followed up with a couple of sellers' agents to obtain additional information which we requested. We then came out the second time for one day; once again we had a full day of property viewings, and this time we're able to find that perfect house. After finding the house, Tanya was instrumental in all aspects of the purchase. She suggested and coordinated an extension on dates of inspection so that we had a more convenient window to fly in from Chicago. She was present during the inspection with my husband, and immediately communicated all the findings to me as well (I wasn't present at the inspection). She also helped us to negotiate the price down quite a bit. When moving forward with the closing, Tanya suggested several local lenders and attorneys, and the entire team turned out to be wonderful. The closing was a breeze, as everything was in order. Personally, Tanya was a pleasure to be house-shopping with. She is knowledgeable, but not pushy or intrusive, striking a perfect balance between giving good advice and allowing us to make choices that fit our lifestyle. To be honest, I was dreading the whole process of buying a house, but Tanya made it informative, easy, and fun. Would highly recommend her to any potential buyers, especially first-time buyers.

Buyer

Sharyn was amazing from the moment of the first contact. I'm a relatively experienced buyer/investor and needed someone who knew things I didn't know. She was so knowledgeable that I immediately knew things would end well and that I would be protected at all phases of the search and purchase. Sharyn was always available and never failed to provide me with wise counsel. Her knowledge of Columbia County is encyclopedic. My search took so long that I still cannot believe she stuck with me with unfailing good humor and optimism throughout. When we finally had an accepted offer she shifted into glitch master ironing out all the little problems that seemed to be undoing the deal each and every day. I honestly think that if I'd made the mistake of hiring someone else I would not be sitting in the beautiful home I'm sitting in right now.

Sharyn once again came through with flawless service. She is amazing and highly recommended. It took a long time to find the house we ended up purchasing. Sharyn showed us so many houses and I was starting to give up. She stayed the course and reassured throughout the process that we would find something. She was correct! As our closing was set to happen just at the start of the pandemic. My job and family matters arose that left my time to concentrate on the purchase details/negotiations at a minimum. She understood and kept everything on track working closely with my attorney to close right before the pandemic started to shut things down. Sharyn's calm and cool attitude under pressure, and desire to perform at her best really sets her apart from other realtors I have worked with. Can not wait to work with her again.

Buyer

Natalie was great at contacting agents and setting up times to see houses that worked with our schedules. As first-time home buyers, my husband and I were very happy to be working with someone who was not pushy and put us at ease in looking at houses without feeling obligated to buy. She was able to figure out what key things we were looking for in a house and give us ideas on what questions to ask. We worked together over a period of about 2 months before we found the one we just moved into and she was equally helpful in the 2 months from the time of offer to the day we closed.

Buyer

John Hanks is a great realtor. He is very knowledgeable and was able to find several houses for us to view that met our criteria. The house we ended up buying wasn’t on our list of places to view, but John suggested that we do a walkthrough and we fell in love with it! This is the first home my husband and I have purchased. John was extremely patient with us and always made himself available to answer questions throughout the purchasing process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.

Buyer

Kathy Buckley was a tremendous asset in helping me purchase my first home. Once a decision was made, there were many details needing attention and timelines to meet. Given my extensive work travel, Kathy kept everything organized, offered expert advice, and managed every detail to ensure an efficient and timely closing. I highly recommend Kathy to be your partner as you search for a new home. While I currently have no plans to sell my dream house, Kathy would be the only person I would entrust with the task.
