Brad (Spry's) service and expertise in buying our home was exemplary. It's our 8th home purchase and Brad's support and guidance really streamlined the process. His knowledge of the market, his homework, his diligence, his follow-up...all exemplary. We were on a tight calendar having sold our other home. Brad did not rest until we had the right deal that could get done on our calendar. What a great partner to have in this very difficult process...!!!
Brad (Spry) was a pleasure to work with. He was gracious enough to show us over 20 properties without a complaint before we decided what to purchase. Once we moved forward with the offer his knowledge and skill really stood out and we negotiated a fantastic deal for our family! I would send friends and family alike to Brad for all of there Real Estate needs. When it is time to upgrade he will get our call!
Working with Brad (Spry) was a pleasure. His easy going laid back personality helped take much of the stress out of buying my home. He was always very responsive, accommodating, and had my back negotiating with the seller on various things. I would not hesitate to work with him again, will absolutely recommend him to friends and family, and will seek him out when/if it comes time to sell.
Working with John Riley to find and purchase our home was a wonderful experience! His professionalism and work ethic was outstanding. Not being from the area, we relied on John's area expertise. He always responded to our questions in a timely manner, ensuring every detail of the buying process was managed well.
Gretchen (O'Neil) has actually assisted us with 3 purchases and is in the process of helping us with a sale now. She has always been responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. Her personality and friendliness are only a plus. We have dealt with a number of realtors over the years and there's a reason we keep coming back to Gretchen now despite the fact our transactions have been geographically diverse.
Paula and Rick Davitt helped to make my home buying experience go as smoothly as possible. Being completely inexperienced with home buying, Paula helped to thoroughly explain every step of the process, explain why things were happening and what to expect next. Paula's knowledge, experience, and professionalism helped me to purchase my first home. I could not have asked for a better realtor to work with.
Davitt Associates sold my home in a timely manner and given unusual circumstances in a very professional, helpful and respectful way. Easily available by email or text message, they worked to schedule and/or reschedule showings as requested and provided a wonderful bridge between owner and potential buyers. In addition, they worked around my schedule and my pets needs with understanding. A great experience!
Paula and Rick (Davitt) are complete professionals and they know Western Mass like nobody else. We were relocating our family from DC to Western Mass and were looking for a home to buy in the middle of winter. Not the best time to be on the market. Rick took us through multiple snow storms to see homes in February since that was the only time we could make it up to look around. He was never pushy and was always asking us questions to refine his sense of what we were looking for. When we found the right house, the sellers' agent was less the helpful in getting negotiations started for some reason but Rick was able to get them to the table and get both sides to agree on a reasonable price and terms. Paula led the charge on the purchase and sale and closing paperwork and dealt with bank when they started piling on more requirements because we were buying remotely. Paula and Rick had excellent suggestions when it came to building inspectors, attorneys and banks and guided us through the process smoothly and successfully. If/when its time to sell our home in a few years, we won't work with anyone else.
