Helped me buy and sell homes
We interviewed Amy when we decided to sell our condo and she went through our place from top to bottom telling us exactly what to do show it to its fullest potential. We did everything that she recommended and she listed it on a Friday and by Sunday night, twenty plus showings later we had a signed contract and got our price. We then started looking for our new home and she didn't waste our time showing us properties that didn't meet our criteria. We found the perfect place and had both closings on the same day. Amy was professional throughout and shepherded us through the entire process seamlessly. I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs. Less ... More

Amy Rio was very professional and helped us find the home that was right for us. She was aware of our situation, and when we were ready, was very willing to show us a home (even in a snowstorm!) and emailed us information about several others that were comparable in price, so we could make a decision that was appropriate. She was not pushy, very respectful, and stayed in contact with us throughout the whole process, even when we hit some glitches, and the closing was delayed. Amy remained personally involved, and no question we asked (as first time home buyers there were many) was too insignificant to receive a thoughtful answer. Amy worked hard to find a way that we could purchase our new home, and was thrilled when it finally happened! Her knowledge of what was available, and her willingness to work with us throughout the entire process (and knowledge of the process), and her enthusiasm and perseverance are qualities that enable us to highly recommend Amy to anyone seeking a home in our area. Amy is a true gem, and works hard for her clients.. not just for the sale, but in helping them find the place that is perfect for them, like ours is for us!! Less ... More

Amy made the search for our home meaningful and smooth. We attempted to purchase 4 years ago and even though it didn't work out right away - Amy never gave up on us! When we were ready to purchase again she was available and willing. She is extremely knowledgeable with the area, and even though she's basically a local celebrity she is very down to earth and easy to talk to. Amy worked hard to advocate for us and assisted in finding the perfect house we now call our home. Amy Rio is an honest and hard working realtor and we would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell! Less ... More

Amy is extremely helpful and professional! She took the time to sit down with us and explain to us the whole process of house hunting and was VERY honest. She wasn't pushy or just in it for the sale like most realtors. She took the time to get to know us and we felt as thought she was more of a friend helping us.

Amy's knowledge of the local area was invaluable to us. She was able to quickly determine our needs and generate a sizeable number of listings for us to review. Amy has an extensive contact list of local area contractors who were able to have our floors installed and the interior painted rapidly and professionally, saving us a small fortune in the process.

My wife and I are extremely lucky to have Amy as our realtor. Amy helped us purchase our first house. She has excellent knowledge of the market and was able to find us a great property in a great location. She made the entire process extremely easy. The last thing I would like to comment on Amy is responsiveness. You can call, text, or email Amy almost 24/7 and receive a response from her in a timely manner if not immediately. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home.

Amy is a real professional who moves quickly - the minute we signed with her she had a photograper out to the house immediately and the pictures were high quality and excellent in terms of viewing, lighting etc. This is a very tough real estate market and she has an extensive network of partners who provided a significant amount of traffic. She evaluated the property which was a 1954 built house which belonged to my 92 year old monther-in-law. Amy made must, want and nice to have recommendations for fixes we needed to make. We followed her lead and wanted to sell the house before winter truly sets in. We did not want to carry the cost of heat, maitenance etc. and she got the job done. The final sale price was the highest that we received; so she didn't just pressure us to take the first low ball offer. When fixes were required, she recommended craftsman who were qualified, did a good job and were reasonable regarding costs. The bottom line is that Amy will not only get the job done, but she will do the job right. It does require that you listen and act on what she recommends. My wife Sue and I were very pleased with the process and the ultimate results. If you are looking for a professional real estate agent and want to get the job done right, then Amy Rio is your person.

I came to Amy after trying unsuccessfully to sell the house by myself for a year. Using FSBO I found that realtors showed my house as a reality check for what a fully and tastefully renovated house costs, and typically the viewers could not qualify for a mortgage at my price point. Just as important, in the months of June and July (two of the busiest in the market cycle), I had not received a single call for a viewing. Amy had a contract in place within a month. She brought only prospects who were interested and could qualify for a mortgage. She took care of everything and was a pleasure to work with. Less ... More

Amy was fabulous. She immediately impressed us with her honesty and real estate know-how by pointing out a potential termite issue in the first house we viewed. We truly appreciated that feedback and it was the reason we signed on with her. She knew the West Hartford (and surrounding) area well. She pointed out prime neighborhoods (and sub-prime as well). She was incredibly fast to respond to our requests to view homes, albeit sometimes a little too brief. We did have a couple instances of miscommunication, but only minor ones as it related to which houses were still available to be viewed, etc. She was very on top of things, even while on vacation. I believe she was away when we made our offer on a home, and she was still able to be on call. When we did finally make our offer on our home, she gave great advice on negotiating and encouraged us to take a risk. It paid off and we got a wonderful price on our house. She has a strong team behind her too, who filled in for her when necessary. All in all, we were very pleased with Amy and her team! Less ... More

We were out of state buyers trying to find a property under tight deadlines and specific parameters. Amy was great - she helped us narrow down our choices and with a husband in construction and rental properties in her portfolio, she advised us wisely as to which houses we could consider. We learned so much about the market and neighborhoods and would recommend her in a heartbeat!

I researched Connecticut brokers on-line and chose Amy's resume. I needed an organized, Energetic go-getter to help us find a home as quickly as possible, for our son & his wife. Our son was finally returning from deployment ( navy ). He is stationed In Groton, we live in Massachusetts. This required Amy to book consecutive showings on weekends for all available homes in a specific area. Not an easy task. We communicated mostly by e-mail and combed the area using Zillow for pictures & info to narrow our choices. This was an excellent tool and time saver. We found a new home for them. Amy went above & beyond her call for "duty" on a Friday at 4pm, after the last showing, during tropical storm Andrea, my car brakes failed, she found a mechanic to repair my car 1st thing sat. morn.

Amy has outstanding negotiation skills and was a real asset in handling issues from 2,500 miles away (I'm on the west coast). She really rose to the occasion when dealing with individuals from a culture that treats women as second class citizens, an issue I hope she does not have to face often. In addition, her staff is very pleasant and professional. Recommended.

Amy Rio's expert marketing and negotiating skills allowed me to sell my home for a fair market price within six weeks of listing it. Amy goes above and beyond what the average real estate agent does, as my previous agent couldn't sell my house in six months for the same listing price as Amy did and without the use of annoying open houses or front yard signs which don't sell homes anyway. Whatever concerns arose, Amy was there to resolve the problem. Amy always returned phone calls and emails. Amy gives you 110% in all aspects of selling your property. She is honest, trust worthy and keeps her promises. No disappointments here. Amy sells homes the way buyers look for homes on the internet with professional pictures and professionally done brochures to hand out to prospective buyers when they come for a showing. Amy is the owner/broker of the company so she spends her marketing dollars wisely giving you the biggest bang for your buck. If you want your home sold, Amy is your go to person to get the job done! I would not hesitate to hire her again to either buy or sell real estate. Less ... More

Amy Rio was our (first-time) buyer agent from February 2013 through June 2013. She was extremely personable right away, but more importantly knowledgeable. We had a very long close, with an unusual incident with our Mortgage Broker, and she stepped in and helped out right away. We were very unaware of the process, and she guided us through each step. Her previous experience shined a lot of light on everyone's role in the long home-buying process. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone buying a home, whether it's their first or last time.

I found Amy to be very involved in what she was doing to help me. She knows her stuff and I appreciated her honesty. I never found her to be at all pushy. She required me to make my own decisions, regardless of whether that meant she would have to spend more time with me or not. It was simply about 'me', not about 'her'. I trusted that in her and felt comfortable to be who I was. At the same time, she is quite a strong negotiator. There is no weakness in that department. Whenever we had an appointment someplace, she would be there at that time, or even text or call if she was running five minutes late. Many times she was there early, before I got there. I was always impressed by her respectfulness of owners, if they were in the house at the same time. She is genuinely nice, regardless of the number of clients she has. Less ... More

I had an appointment with her to see a house. She never showed up! I was walking around the yard and the owner came out to tell me that they had cancelled the appointment. Amy Rio never phoned me with an update; she simply did not show and never tried to contact me again even though I left a message for her. I would say she is very unprofessional. My time is important to me.

Hello , I was not your apt. You were assigned to an agent in the office. I and the Buyer/Seller coordinator. In 24 years I have not stood anyone up, certainly been stoop up many times.

I have had 2 professional interactions with Amy Rio. I had rented a house from her for about 2 years, and just finished purchasing a house through her. You can tell a lot about someone when you rent from them. After having a series of renting from bad landlords, i was predisposed to be hesitant of anyone i rented from. Turns out She's the best landlord i've had. She respected our privacy and was always very prompt whenever we had a question or problem with the home. If something broke she would have it taken care of without hesitation. Since i had good luck renting from her, I immediately went to her when considering buying a house. I didn't know the first thing about buying a house and didn't know where to start. She started right away. She got us in touch with a mortgage broker to see if we would get pre-aproved for a loan. When we got approved we were very excited about it and wanted to get started right away. She was more than happy to go at whatever pace we wanted. We went through periods where we were looking at tons of houses, and times where we didn't look for a while. One of the best parts of the experience was her patience and knowledge about the entire process. I think I was contacting her multiple times a day for quite a while with random questions about anything I could possibly think to ask. If she wasn't possitive about the answer, she always seemed to know someone who did. She got me in touch with very reliable contractors, a loan officer that was incredible and managed to push through a closing almost a month earlier than everyone else said should take about 2 months (it was a rehab loan, which apparently is difficult to get everything finalized, his name is Eric Billings. Would highly recommend), and a great closing lawyer. She, and everybody she put me in contact with was professional, friendly, easy to get along with and got the job done right. Only problem might be that she got back to me too quickly? I couldn't keep up with her emails! So in short, She gets 5 stars across the board. Large local knowledge (I believe she grew up in the area), she knew what to expect for the whole process, always promp to reply to everything, and she was always up front on the actual price of the house. She'd always let us know if the price was too high and what we could expect to pay, too low and we should not push it too much or if the asking price was probably going to be close to the finishing price. I will go back to her if i ever buy/sell a house. You can call her with confidence. Less ... More

Never seen an agile and a professional agent !!! She knows the real estate market and houses in the area as if she owns them. From the day we emailed her for the house till the day we got the keys for our home she was extremely approachable and responsive. She has an unbelievable talent of reading out the minds of her clients and accordingly showcases the houses. She will not only show you houses within your budget but very much as per your mental frame and taste. This makes her an ideal agent?Being first time home buyers many a times we were skeptical and threw lot of questions to her.Even simple ones like questions related to the clauses of mortgage and taxes. She took out time to explain and answer even the silliest question.Not to forget the huge inventory of houses covered by her and the great network that has she build over the period of years on anything and everything related to home buying like inspectors, carpet cleaners etc. Overall when it comes to home buying Amy Rio is unstoppable and unbeatable?Thanks to her we found our dream house in an awesome locality and having a beautiful view and that too in a reasonable price!!!

As soon as I met with Amy while we were selling our home, I knew she was the person we wanted to work with. She is a firecracker! She sold our home in 4 days, and was just very honest and straight-forward about the entire process. She is a strong negotiator, very knowledgeable about the market, and has an amazing assistant, Steve. Steve handles the details of the operation (Amy's right hand man)- and was very responsive and reassuring during this process. I had also hired Amy to help me find my home, in which I am amazed at her patience with me, since we searched for a while. But once I found "home" she was there every step of the way (including Steve), and provided me the guidance I needed when I submitted my offer... to working with my lawyers on closing on the home (including sending any paperwork as needed, in a prompt manner). I honestly can say that Amy and her team have made the home-selling and home-purchasing process easy and pleasurable.

We first met Amy when she showed us a house we were interested in. After a year of occasionally looking at houses that peaked our interest, we decided to take the plunge and list our house for sale. We felt very comfortable having Amy sell our house. Considering we listed our house in the middle of January we didn't expect too much. But we had 4-5 showings a week and ultimately the house sold rather quickly and initially for our asking price. There were several issues that came up that were out of ours' and Amy's control and Amy dealt with them the best as possible and we felt comfortable knowing that the best solution was reached. We were very happy with the whole process. Less ... More

Amy has been great to work with. She showed us a ton of houses last year and was available whenever we contacted her. Then, when we were ready, she helped us get our house on the market. We sold our house in about 2 months and the whole process went pretty smoothly. We are now building a new house and Amy will continue to represent us for our purchase. We would definitely recommend Amy for buying or selling your house. Lindsay and Justin Kababik

When my wife and I contacted Amy to see a specific property we were just starting to look for a house and not sure what we wanted just yet. Amy was amazing, not only did she show us numerous properties but within a couple of showings she picked up on what our likes and dislikes were. Meeting up with Amy to see homes was like meeting up with your old friend for coffee, she made the entire process very enjoyable. Amy is extremely knowledgeable in what she does and she does it very well, she really does stand out in her field. Amy and her crew (Steve and Karen) are all amazing, they respond to your phone calls/emails quickly and they put your mind at ease that everything will get taken care of and it does. I would recommend Amy Rio to anyone, whether just starting out or buying your fifth home. N. Rekosiewicz Less ... More

Amy's fantastic. Not only have I found a great agent, but I also gained a friend. Would I recommend? I already have, a few times. She was extremely patient with me on my search and was always quick to answer emails, calls or even texts. Also, being from the area & in the business, she was very helpful with after sale services?. plumbing, pest control etc. Thanks to Amy, from start to finish, the whole process was much more enjoyable.

Amy is a true professional who knows the ins and outs of a real estate deal. With the purchase of our first single-family house, she offered sound advice in the negotiation process. She was also instrumental in making sure documentation from FEMA was acquired by the seller with regards to re-zoning the house out of an outdated flood zone. This saved my wife and I a tremendous amount of money, eliminating our requirement for carrying expensive flood insurance on the property. She was also able to effectively market and get our condo sold in a very difficult market for condominium sales. From listing-to-close that property was sold in just over 40 days . I would recommend Amy Rio to anyone, whether moving up or starting out. Less ... More

Amy is a pleasure to work with. She goes out of her way to accomodate appointments to show houses, does not push you to settle on a home that you are not 100% sure of, and is extremely knowledgable and dilligent when it comes time to close the deal. I recommend her for all of your Real Estate needs without hesitation.

Amy was a wonderful buyer?s agent for us. She was extremely patient over the several months we were looking. We had a difficult time deciding whether a condo or single family home would be right for us. She patiently helped us explore both options, and in the end we were able to find the perfect place in a great location. She was always extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and was able to slim down the long list of available homes to just the ones that fit our criteria, and more importantly our taste. She took the time to understand who we were as buyers, and then lead us towards properties that matched us. We were new to Connecticut, so she was an excellent recourse for helping us choose between the different towns, and then the neighborhoods. You could really tell that she absolutely loved her job. She met us after work or on the weekends with tons of enthusiasm. She was always easy to contact by phone or email, and returned messages promptly. We ran into some speed bumps (none of which were Amy?s fault) during the negation process (other people were also bidding on the property) and during closing (seller did not complete repairs agreed to after home inspection). Each time Amy kept us up to date on what was happening, and fought for our interests. Amy did an outstanding job for us, and we would not hesitate to recommend Amy to anybody. When it?s time to upgrade in a few years, we know exactly who to call. Less ... More

As first time home buys, a lot of handholding was needed. Amy did all that. She quickly learned what it is we are looking for and only showed us homes we would potentially consider buying. She was always readily available to see new homes and to answer our questions. Her expertise really showed when we walked into a home (that we did purchase), and told us exactly how much negotiating room we had. We bough if for exactly as much as she said we would, it was well below the asking price. I really hope I will never have to buys a new home again, but if I do. I will be calling Amy. Less ... More

Amy truly has expertise and knowledge, and provided guidance to my wife and I as we pursued our first home. She was more responsive than I would have imagined a real estate agent to be. She always made time in her busy schedule to accommodate us. When it came down to crunch time, she addressed our concerns and anxiety, and made us feel at ease. Amy is the real deal and knows how to meet her clients needs.

Amy was a great realtor to work with! This was my first home purchase and she explained the whole process in a way I easily understood. Amy and I got together 2x per week for 1 month and she only showed me condos within the criteria that I had requested, not wasting time elsewhere. After we found my dream home, at first it looked like I didn't get it. However, because Amy already had my offer check in hand, when we were presented with a second opportunity because the first buyer fell through, she rushed over to present my check to the seller and I got the condo!

It is with honor that I write a review for Amy Rio, Owner and Agent of Executive Real Estate in Glastonbury. In the face of adversity for me, she made an otherwise difficult situation pleasantly rewarding. A special talent. As an owner, under stress and pressure - leaving a home I was raised in, Amy had a special quality, unlike any other person. It is a quality inherent in her personality and it eased the pain of the move. In fact, I was looking forward to it, rather than dreading it. She stuck with it, even under difficult contractual failures, she continued to give me hope and she delivered. Always with a smile, lightheartedness, kindness, understanding - she made my move so filled with heart. I would recommend Amy Rio to the everyone. She is honest, consistent, dependable, and stays with you til the job is done. She never makes you feel bad about yourself while you're having difficulties. A wonderful friend in the end. Thank you Amy Rio for everything you did for me and thank you for being a part of my life. Less ... More

Amy Rio is a professional in ever sense of the word. She is well versed in local market conditions, extremely personable and provides informative and direct advice. Most important she applied her expert knowledge of local and national market conditions to developing a realistic course of action for selling our home. Our home sold within the first month...I attribute this to adhering to Amy's recommendations and her active pursuit of matching a buyer with our property.

The 1st agent we signed up with had not showed our home to anyone in 29 days. When we expressed our concerns they let us out of the contract with their agency. I called Amy that evening (a Wednesday) and she came to our home the next afternoon. We signed a 6 month contract with her. The next day the house was shown and by Saturday a bid came in. Unbelievable, but that"s our story. Our home sold for a very fair price considering the market was bad.

Amy is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. Most agents I've worked with weren't quick enough or didn't have the knowledge I was expecting from a real estate agent---so they were never called again. She asked how she could help and I told her what I wanted and she gave me exactly what I asked for in a timely manner. Nothing was ever sugar coated. She was very straight to the point, honest and pleasant to work with. She is very dedicated to what she does and made the process very seamless for me. She is extremely prompt with e-mail/phone calls. Her assistant is also wonderful! She has a great team working with her.
