Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Griswold, CT.

I can't say enough about Bette! She was honest, quick to return my many emails, texts and phone calls. She was very patient and professional, and kind. I really felt she was on our side as if she were a familiar friend and not just trying to get another paycheck as had been my experience with other agents. She was excellent. She was able to get us money back from our closing and she remained in constant contact with our mortgage lender and our insurance lender. She has many contacts... and everyone she recommended was good. Bette if you read this Thank You! Will and I love our new home and couldn't be happier! Jessica  More Less

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Ledyard, CT.

Bette was a God-send to our family. We purchased a condo at the peak of the market, and got ripped off in addition to inflated prices, due to the self seeking realtor we had at the time. We were naive and vulnerable and prime pickings for as Bette describes them "bottom feeders". A few years went by paying our hefty mortgage and condo dues, and we made some bad financial decisions (I guess we like to learn the hard way!). Then, a few more years went by and some unexpected hardships hit us that put further strain on our family, and before I knew it people were leaving me groceries in a friend of mine's car with my name on it. Someone from my church sent me a gift card for food. We were in trouble, so I went to see Bette. She gave me the hard reality of my situation and some real options to help climb out of this heavy weight that was crushing us. She did not offer a band-aid, and offered sound advise and counsel on all our options. Her exhaustive knowledge on all the options led us to finally, for the first time in years, a good decision to help us become stable again.

We knew we only had a few options that would allow our family to recover from the series of losses we endured. To avoid foreclosure we sought to do a short sale. I saw the hand of God's provision the entire process. God brought Bette to us, as with every bump, she knew how to navigate the bureaucracy that seemed endless. We prayed like crazy! We had a very specific set of demographics, that Bette with her expert knowledge, knew what would be the result of each decision we made as we fought our way through the process. An example of this is: what are the implications of short sale on someone in the military? She knew. In the middle of all this my husband was deployed and she was still able to manage the difficult process; she always knew who to call. At times, she practically held my hand through the very difficult and emotionally straining ordeal. It was apparent that her care exceeded her vocation, and she brought a whole new level of help in our crisis.

Would I recommend this realtor? I already have, probably to about 15 people. Would I ever choose another realtor? Not on your life. If you want to know what it is like to have a realtor you can trust, depend and have a safe place with, Bette is your gal. If the only way I can ever pay her back is to record what happened during this difficult time, in hopes it might help her, I must share my story. If I desire to help some hopeless person in their housing nightmare, I must share my story.

Bought a home in 2013.

Extremely pleased with the job Bette has done in helping us find the home of our dreams. Her knowledge in the short sale process has helped get us a great deal on our home. She is very experienced agent who knows the area well. Highly recommended!
