Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Pittsfield, MA.

I would recommend The Plaine Team to anyone looking to buy or sell.

I worked with Rachael and she was great! We looked at a variety of homes in the Berkshires and she was very patient with me, as a first time home buyer. She had lots of great advice on things to look for when viewing homes and great communication skills!

If I am ever in the market to buy or sell again, she's the first one I would call!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Pittsfield, MA.

Our real estate agent, Rachael Plaine, is a supportive, insightful & on-top-of-it resource in our condo search. She is always prepared, timely and goes out of her way to gather extra info on the properties my fiancee and I are interested in. I love her bright smile and positive attitude. She cares about what we want (and dream of) in a home and connects us to condos that match our aesthetic and needs.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Hinsdale, MA.

In selling my property at 42 Lakeview Circle,Hinsdale I dealt with Rachael Paine who provided me with top-notch service. The advertising her company provided and the presentation of my property on the internet was excellent. The rating I have given above describes my experience. I was satisfied with both price and the overall time period of the sale.  More Less
