Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Andover, MA.

I have nothing but good things to say about Merit. She guided me though the process, was very upfront, and worked tirelessly. She even helped me to clean windows before an open house! You are in excellent hands with Merit.

Sold a home in 2013.

We have been told by attorneys and others involved in our recent move, that ours was one of the trickiest to navigate. A quick turn around, very little wiggle room in price, and a historic house sale were all pieces of the puzzle that needed to come together. Merit worked diligently and with great care to help us through each step of the process. She is bright, knowledgable and never afraid to look into something to make sure she has the correct answer to our concerns. She made us feel safe. As a trusted advisor, she would detail each step of the process. With compassion and grace, she would listen and assuage our fears. I can see that she will accomplish great things in her future, as she is equal parts savvy, smart and gracious. Our house was on the market for a mere six days when 4 offers over asking price arrived. She also helped us find our new home, the house we had always dreamed of. We are able to enjoy our first holiday here with our young children thanks to Merit. I cannot thank her enough for her time and efforts and will always offer my recommendation.

Thank you Lisa and Larry, for this review, and for being such stellar sellers and buyers. Your integrity and level-headedness in dealing with the challenges of both transactions helped a great deal in keeping the end goal clearly in sight!

Bought a home in 2013.

Merit has been fantastic to work with! She was very knowledgable about the area and very much took our 'must-haves' (newer home, 3 bed/2ba, nice yard etc) into considration before showing us anything. We ended up going through 2 different home inspections and she was encouraging through the whole process. We even had a relocation company to deal with and she not only managed some of their crazy requests but helped us find a great RE lawyer too. All in all Merit was so helpful throughout the buying process I would definitely recommend using her as your realtor!

Tthank you so much for your kind words. Real estate transactions sometimes get quite treacherous and stressful, on top of what already can be a stressful time, selling/purchasing/relocating/moving. I do my best to buffer my clients and pay attention to details so that they get through it as smoothly and quickly as possible. I love it when buyers are happy!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Andover, MA.

Merit was the listing agent for the house we bought. So while we didn't work with her directly during the sale, she made herself available afterward to welcome us to the neighborhood and answer any questions we had about the house and the area.

She has been a great resource and very pleasant and easy to work with.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Andover, MA.

Merit helped us to find a rental home and we will be using her, hopefully in the next year, to find a home to buy. I actually contacted Merit about a property she was handling and she ended up helping us find a rental when that one did not work out for us. I am very impressed by Merit's willingness to take on what is not a high commission job at all and making herself available so easily.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Andover, MA.

Merit sold our home in Andover for asking price in less than a week, we had several offers during this time. She is a pleasure to work with, and stays involved throughout the process and after the sale if need be. Both my husband and I highly recommend Merit, you will be pleased with the results.
