Ratings & Reviews

Upon first meeting Margaret we had a good feeling about working with her and after seeing our first property together we knew we had made the right decision. Margaret is a dedicated broker and her depth of knowledge is extensive. When something came up she was not familiar with she would often have an answer next time we met - I say this to point out she is has a genuine interest in and enthusiasm for her work. She was always forthright with her opinions and concerns and we felt comfortable voicing ours to her. In other words we believe we had a reliable person with our interests in mind working with us. We ended up buying a great house that stayed within our initial demands. So Thank You, Margaret. - JS

Margaret is great! I am a real estate investor with a small handful of properties. I have worked with her on almost every one. She is very experienced, well connected, open minded, and very motivated. What more do you want?

Bought a home in 2014 in Burtts Crossing, Tewksbury, MA 01876.

I had the pleasure of working with Margaret Belmonte this Spring when she assisted me in buying my first home. Margaret was exceptional in every facet. As a first time home buyer, my anxieties were quickly put to ease thanks to Margaret's professionalism, experience, persistence and confidence. Margaret went above and beyond and thanks to her, my buying experience was a quick, painless and exciting process that I will remember forever. Thank you so much for everything, Margaret!

Update Jun 30 2014

After buying a house with Margaret as our buyers agent, see review below, we asked her to help us sell a house for us in Salem MA.

I have to say I was surprised she took on the job as the property was a difficult sell and I was a difficult seller! But Margaret persevered. She found exactly what a difficult property needed. Just the right buyer and made the deal come together favorably for us.

Original review:

Margaret acted as our broker on a recent purchase or a single family.

We did our own research and "drive-by's" then gave Margaret the listings we wanted to see. The "drive-by's", which was her idea, was a great idea. Often times the "drive-by" is all you need to disqualify a property. This saved both her and us a lot of time wasted on setting up showings on something you would outright reject just looking at it from the outside.

She ended up helping us find just the right house at the right price.

I am so happy with her and her in depth knowledge of the local markets that I will be listing a two family I own with her.

Bought a home in 2013 in Phillips Point, Swampscott, MA 01907.

My experience with Margaret has been so wonderful! As a first-time home buyer she sheparded me through the process with skill and sensitivity. She's an amazing "listener"...she understood my needs and requirements from the start and every house she showed me would have absolutely met my criteria. I believe she has an uncanny abiliity to understand her client's needs and she works tirelessly to meet them. When we found the home that I purchased her excitement matched mine! We walked in and said "THIS IS IT!"...simultaneously...and I knew that she would make this dream come true for me. Margaret will forever be a part of our family...her skill and expertise and willingness to go the extra mile has changed our lives.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Rockport, MA.

We were making a move from out of state. Margaret and her partner Sharon were amazing. Over three weekends wee were able to look at well over 50 properties in three desirable towns on the north shore. We had some difficult criteria as we both work from home and need our own nook. Margaret not only helped steer us to the right neighborhoods, she also negotiated with the seller to get us a significant piece drop based on an honest appraisal of the property. She has continued to be supportive even after we moved in to the new home, helping us find service providers (insurance agent, contractors etc.). She is a delight to work with and a really good listener. We wouldn't know what to do without her help. Thanks a ton Margaret!

Bought a home in 2013 in South Georgetown, Georgetown, MA 01833.

Margaret is a very experienced agent. She acted as a buyers agent for us and we were very pleased. She has superior knowledge of the buying process and seems to have a great feel for the market. Margaret will tell you what you need to hear rather than what you want to hear which is important during a home buying process. She has a very good grip on what the needs are of the buyer and will try to accommodate and make suggestions based on her experience. During negotiations she is on a different level and other agents may find it hard to keep up. Margaret was very pleasant to work with and she made sure to add a personal touch and get to know us.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Gloucester, MA.

We have sold two houses and bought two others with the help of Margaret over the course of 13 years. We hope to never move again but if the need arises we wouldn't think of using any other agent. Ms Belmonte is very knowledgeable about the North Shore cities and towns and goes above and beyond for her customers on a regular basis even finding last minute financing for one of our buyers when there original lender backed out. She is a true professional!
