No one knows Sudbury neighborhoods better than Laura does. This allowed her to set our asking price at a level that would bring potential buyers. She was thorough in determining buyers financials so that we didn't get tied up worrying if financing could be obtained. She was on top of every step in the process such as smoke/co certificate, final water bill etc. She performed the majority of the steps for us. Also, she set us up with attorney, Matthew E. Scafidi, Esq. who handled the P&S and closing superbly.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Sudbury, MA.

I have worked with Laura and Beth on a number of occasions. I have sold two homes, and bought two homes with them. They were able to find me a buyer for my home during the 2009 real estate downturn; they helped me stage the home and spruced it up better than I could. They helped me after the house had been on the market with another Realtor for nine months without any offers. Then they helped me find a home that was perfect for me at the time. Three years later when my needs changed, they were able to help me sell my home. They helped with last minute cleanup and walk-through issues. They were a great help in negotiating for the new home. Having multiple opinions available from Laura and Beth made it easier to get a holistic view on the process. A team is better than one person; if you can't reach one, you're sure to be able to reach the other. I would definitely recommend Laura and Beth to anyone buying or selling in Sudbury; they are both long term residents. I will use them again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Sudbury, MA.

I would strongly recommend Laura and Beth for anyone considering buying or selling a home in Metrowest. We worked with them to sell our home in Sudbury two years ago and they were great throughout the whole process.

They have a deep understanding of the Metrowest markets, comparables, and in crafting a selling strategy. For us, they defined a great strategy and more important were flexible in adjusting our approach to the market to secure an accepted offer within the first 30 days our home was on the market.

In addition to knowing the supply side, they have their pulse on the demand side - buyer activity, what features of a home are currently in high demand, and the importance of timing when coming to market and scheduling showings.

They are a strong team that has the skills and experience to help any buyer or seller meet their real estate objectives.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $900K in Sudbury, MA.

Laura and Beth completely committed themselves to the process of selling our home- as if it were their very own. We were amazed at how much time and attention they gave us, like they were dedicated friends, not just transactional brokers. We would use them again without question!

Sold a home in 2013.

My husband and I chose Laura and Beth to sell our home based on recommendations from friends in town. Laura and Beth were honest with us about what we needed to do to sell our home. We listened, and they sold it in less than a week. They then helped us navigate what could have been a tricky process until the close. Throughout, they were sage counselors, who we continued to seek out after we sold our house. They very willingly gave advice--even though we didn't end up buying a home. They were the best part of our home sell/home search process, and we now consider them friends.

It was a real pleasure working with Laura & Beth. They had done their research, and gave us good advice re pricing our house and preparing it for showing. They also were great advocates in the negotiating process, not allowing us to be taken advantage of. We were very happy with the result.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Sudbury, MA.

My brother and I needed to sell our mothers home located in Sudbury, MA as she went into assisted living, and we were not sure how to go about selecting a realtor. We heard that Coldwell Banker had sold a house in the area recently and wanted to check them out as a possible agent.

I meet with Laura Semple and Beth Hettrich and was impressed from the moment we first spoke. They brought a level of professionalism that made me feel comfortable immediately. Every question we had was answered with high level of expertise, and we were happy to have people that also grew up in the area.

Once we selected them to proceed, I could not believe how quickly they put everything together. The preliminary evaluation and marketing strategy was well laid out and put into an easy to understand pamphlet. We signed them up on a Tuesday and they had an open house set up for that weekend.

Our house sold in only 2-1/2 weeks and input from the Semple Hettrich Team helped us get an acceptable offer very close to our asking price.

I would highly recommend them to any one interested is selling a home. They will be my first choice if I ever need to sell a home again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Maynard, MA.

How rare it is to find someone in sales who doesn't try and sell you. Someone who takes time to get to know your family, who works for your best interest and who negotiates so hard on your behalf. I cannot say enough good things about Laura. Both she and Beth took an interest in who we are and found us a home to match and for this I am truly grateful.

Sold a home in 2010.

Beth and Laura are simply the best realtors we've ever worked with (2nd place isn't even close to them). After 2 years of working with other realtors on finding the perfect home for our family, we started working with Laura & Beth...and within a month they found EXACTLY what we wanted. It was obvious that the listened to us about the home & neighborhood that we wanted, and they know the local area like no other team we've met. Not only did they find the perfect house for us, but they also helped us sell our previous home. This was 4 years ago, during the worst housing decline in history...and what they helped us accomplish still amazes me. Our old home had 1 open house (just one), and at the end of that day we had 4 offers to choose from...(2 of which were ABOVE our asking price). They are amazing!
