REALTOR, MA Residential License (10 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in Ipswich, MA.
Given that our most recent purchase was the 7th home we’ve purchased over the years, we were very discerning buyers both in the house we wanted and in our realtor. Ingrid was hands down the best realtor we’ve ever had; patient, very knowledgeable, a great listener, with excellent follow up, and confident and logical enough to keep us from wasting our time with listings that were not appropriate. If A+ were the best grade I could give a realtor, Ingrid’s grade would be A++.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Ipswich, MA.
Ingrid Miles represented the seller for the lovely first period home we bought last fall. We did not have a real estate agent though our lawyer was more than qualified to represent us. Even so, there are idiosyncrasies in any purchase and naturally we had many questions about what it meant to take on a big old house. Without at any point losing her focus of loyalty to the sellers she and her husband Steve Miles responded to several questions we had that allowed all parties to move ahead effectively and efficiently. Once the sale was completed both of them were a delightful, informed resource for helping us to get settled in our new community. Their strict professionalism, experience and personal warmth led us to be enthusiastic about recommending them highly to anyone needing expert, trustworthy real estate assistance.

"We are very pleased to recommend our realtor Ingrid Miles on a new home purchase in Newburyport, MA. Ingrid is extremely knowledgable, on top of everything, and very responsive. This was my first home buying process and she helped make things go very smoothly. We jokingly call her the Mayor as she knows just about everyone in the area which speaks to her success. Thank you, Ingrid. Daniel & Danielle"

Ingrid was the consummate professional! She was friendly and pleasant, with a deep skill set that made her a pleasure to work with. Ingrid provided regular updates, which we appreciated very, very much. Her follow-through was superb - no detail passed without her scrutiny.
Overall, I'd recommend Ingrid without hesitation, and am honored to now think of her as my friend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Ipswich, MA.
Ingrid is great to work with and very professional. I highly recommend her and I would certainly use her again. She was prompt in answering my questions, and had a good deal of knowledge that she shared with us during the process. There was a lot of negotiation and the closing date changed a few times, but Ingrid worked very hard to make everything come together in a timely manner. She also was able to find a buyer that fit our needs perfectly. She in definitely willing to work with you and try to find out what the best fit is for everyone involved.
Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2014 in Gloucester, MA.
Ingrid is awesome and helped us through a difficult process as first time home buyers. She was very responsive and kept on the sellers as they dragged their feet to ensure that the process was kept as on track as possible. She did a great job of keeping us informed and passing all our questions and items to the seller throughout the process to ensure that everything from our end was up to date and accurate.
Ingrid was good about sharing her expertise and insight without making us feel like she was steering us in any direction other than making sure we thought of all the outcomes and possible items/issues.
Even when Ingrid wasn't available she made sure that a helpful colleague, Susan Budrewicz, was available to assist us.
We were very pleased that we chose Ingrid Miles to represent the sale of our property.
She and her team marketed the property well through her vast network and secured two prior offers and of course the final offer which went through successfully. There are many good reasons to choose Ingrid and her team but chief among them is her work ethic, her ability to use technology to the fullest to market property and Ingrid's willingness to address questions and concerns promptly and resourcefully.
Our process ran up against so many unique situations that it would have been impossible for anyone to have a great knowledge of the process. But Ingrid was efficient, calm, and kept the whole process moving. We thank her and recommend her.
Ingrid did a masterful job evaluating the market for our unusual home; a home that did not have any comparables. She creatively set up a sequence of events that attracted potential buyers and our expectations were exceeded when we had multiple full price offers on the first showing day! The price point that she recommended was spot on. She sold the house for much more than we thought we were going to get. Her professional demeanor and knowledge of local market conditions gave us confidence that our goals would be met, and her warm personality was a joy to experience. I could not give her a higher recommendation!

Ingrid was a wonderfully pro-active representative. She knows how to market and match people and properties. Once an offer was made, she was great at making the process run smoothly and completing the sale. I would definitely use Ingrid again, and highly recommend her.
