It is with great pleasure I write this letter of both recommendation, and commendation, for realtor Anne Marseilles. It was the summer of 2012, when my husband and I elected to sell our multi-family home in the city of New Haven, and start a new and unhurried life in the country, where gardens and chickens, and other farm-like accoutrements could afford us greater moments of solace. In the infancy of our plans, a chance meeting between my mother and Anne, at an eightieth birthday party, brought to fruition the start of a fantastic end to our city living.
Immediately on meeting Anne, I was put at ease by her bubbly and humorous personality, her extreme knowledge of the business of selling real-estate, and her ability to acquiesce my worries and fears with real time direction and support. Always just an e-mail, phone call, or bike ride away, Anne got the job done with extreme professionalism and some serious know how, as well as tenacity when needed. Only 48 hours prior to closing, what appeared to be an outstanding lien against the property was discovered. The discovery set into place a worrisome two days, but with Anne's continued support and direction, the issue got resolved in time for the closing to move forward as scheduled. I would recommend Anne Marseille to everyone and anyone. As a matter of fact, she will soon represent Mom!

We had to put our house on the market quite suddenly and move away from New Haven because of a health crisis that left us little time to put the house in reasonable order, much less to stage it for showings. Anne filled in, going way beyond usual services to get cleaning, repair, and yard help - and to come to the house to supervise their work. And in our absence, she made sure the house and yard were maintained. She's not only a person to be trusted to deal fairly, she seems to be able to command the sevices of all sorts of honest workers, even of a terrific lawyer who handled the closing in our absence.
She stayed in close touch with us through the whole process of having open houses, and gave us good advice in considering, refusing, and then accepting offers. And she was an enormous help and support through clearing the house and preparing it for the closing, and we are happy with the price she was able to get for us.
Bought a Condo home in 2010 in Downtown, New Haven, CT.
An excellent real estate professional! Anne REALLY knows the area, and its real estate. She understood exactly what we were looking for, and didn't waste our time showing us things that didn't fit this description. She was very helpful when it came to negotiating the contract and closing the sale. And, since we wanted to redo the bathroom in the unit we purchased, she gave us the name of the contractor that she'd used before - and who we ended up using - who did an excellent job. I couldn't recommend her highly enough -- she won't rest until she gets her clients what they are looking for!

Anne knows the East Rock multi-family market intimately. She has lived in the area her entire life and knows everything there is to know about the housing market, the local schools and businesses, and the folks in the neighborhood. She also knows who is looking for what so she can quickly create a good fit.
Immediately upon seeing our property, she drew upon her knowledge of potential buyers. The first people who saw it made an offer immediately. The house was on the market two days!
Anne is responsive, intelligent, committed and a delight to work with. We would recommend her without reservation.

This was my second home buying experience with Anne. If I ever buy another home, she would be my only choice. She is very knowledgeable about real estate itself and the process of buying a home. She supported me during every step and helped me make the best choice. I was initially unsure and went back and forth, house or condo. She was patient with me as she showed me properties. She helped me to be objective so that when I made my decision, I knew it was the right on for me. was very pleased with her professionalism and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home

I understand that giving a five star rating for each category of Anne Marseille's review might seem as if I'm not taking the ratings seriously. But I say this because I am. When Anne picked up the phone on my first call to Betsy Grauer Realty, I simply lucked out. I was moving to New Haven as a PhD student and looking to buy my first property--a condo. I knew little about the neighborhoods and surrounding area, and nothing about the market. It was supremely important to me that I not only feel secure in my agent, but that I worked with an agent who could tailor what she showed me, as well as her presentation and explanation of the properties, to my mindset, personality, lifestyle, and plans for the future. Anne did exactly that. Anne is familiar with academic life and culture, as well as New Haven neighborhoods down to the different sides and parts of any one street. She also conveys a charismatic knowledge of the culture of New Haven that helped place everything we saw, and my final decision, in a broad yet nuanced context. Far from making a deal, or completing a sale, I had made a friend I would call on for further business and advice. My buying experience was instructive and invigorating. And I love seeing Anne around the neighborhood, walking or on her bike, as just another, very friendly neighbor.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Hamden, CT.
Anne worked very hard to help us find the house that was right for us. She did a fantastic job educating us on the East Rock/Hamden markets so we were in a position to understand value as we performed out home search. Her many years of experience in these markets showed through her recommendations on what houses to show us, pointing us to reputable service providers and counsel when finalizing our offer. Anne was always looking out for our best interests and that showed throughout the offer, inspection and even post close process. Finally, Anne was just a pleasure to work with - buying a home can feel stressful, but working with Anne made it much less so.
I would not hesitate to recommend Anne and would ask her to sell our house if that time ever came.

Ann Marseille is enthusiastic! This along with a genuine interest in design and architecture is probably why our three family house in Hamden was on deposit in a week and closed within a month. Ann has a style all her own and she was a joy to work with. She showed considerable knowledge of the East Rock area where our house was located and where she grew up.
Ann respected the wishes of our tenants by calling before she
showed their apartments, always being present at the showing
and taking care that their pets were not let out.
A smart and delightful woman we would recommend her without hesitation.

I am convinced I could not have had the totally positive experience I had selling my house without Anne working with/for me. She got me top dollar. I don't know all of the agents in New Haven, but I would put Anne at the very top. She also helped me find a new home just as I thought I'd be putting my belongings in a storage unit, board my cat, and move in with my brother.She found me a home at a very good price. Anne is a miracle worker...she really has her client's best interest in mind. Anne is just great! I highly recommend her!
