Helped me buy home
My husband I were fortunate to meet Nancy over 8 years ago. We were naive young adults, just shy of the legal drinking age, getting married and buying our first house! Needless to say we would need a lot of help and guidance through this process. We could go on and on about Nancy, and everything she has helped us accomplish, but there is not enough time in the day for that! Nancy has been our personal realtor for the past 8 years. We can assure you that there is not a more reliable, trust worthy, friendly, KNOWLEDGEABLE, experienced realtor in the world that could have helped both my husband and myself more than Nancy has. Nancy has helped us purchase our first home even before we were married, to currently helping sell two of our homes. We have been truly blessed to have such a wonderful realtor, who we consider to be a part of our family. We trust Nancy, and recommend her to all of our family and friends. With Nancy, comes an reputable list of local contractors, referrals, and knowledgeable people who can help you with your next real estate endeavor and help to make it happen. We whole heartedly recommend Nancy, and appreciate everything she has done for our family! We can guarantee you that Miss Nancy is the most thorough person we have ever met!

Back in 2002 when I started thinking about buying my first home, I was fortunate to find Nancy, who convinced me it was possible and then took me through the daunting process step by step. When it came time to sell the house seven years later, Nancy was the first person I called. Her extensive knowledge of the local housing market proved to be invaluable. With a very limited budget to prepare the house for sale, I trusted Nancy's suggestions about what repairs and improvements would yield the greatest payoff at selling time. Nancy's diligent marketing efforts attracted buyers to my house at a time when other homes weren't selling well. Within a few weeks, I had a buyer for my house and a substantial return on my initial investment. Nancy's cheerful and consistent support throughout the process of selling my home made the task less overwhelming. I could trust Nancy's in-depth knowledge of real estate finances and logistics so I didn't have to negotiate these prickly details on my own. Always ethical and infinitely savvy, Nancy gets results. If you're looking to buy or sell a home and hoping to have some fun along the way, Nancy's the realtor who can make it all happen. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
My wife and I first met Nancy Merritt several years ago at an open house, attracted by the clear, positive, and compelling description of the property that she had written--a description that, to our surprise, turned out to be entirely accurate. As we continued to look for a new home over the next two or three years, we came to rely on Nancy/ open house advertisements as reliable and honest guides to the properties that she was showing. Eventually, with Nancy's help, we did find what is now our home. She assisted us throughout the process of buying and renovating it while simultaneously selling our then home. In both cases, her advice enabled us to secure favorable prices and to work our way through the complicated details of financing, buying, rebuilding, selling, and moving under fairly strict time constraints during a harsh winter when the real estate market was in the doldrums. It was a completely satisfying process, largely due to Nancy/ knowledge, professionalism, friendly support, and cheerfulness. Nancy's experience in real estate is considerable. She is thoroughly familiar with the communities around us, including their schools, traffic patterns, shopping facilities, recreational opportunities, medical offices, financial resources, and the like. When recommending houses for us to look at, Nancy connected what she knew about the area with our particular needs. She listened to us and showed us only locations that were a response to what we had told her, that fit our requirements both physically and financially. Although she certainly made suggestions of her own, they were always on target and helpful. This made what can be a stressful ordeal into an exciting and quickly successful experience. Moreover, Nancy guided is toward appropriate short-term financing and a realy splendid builder, and spent a great deal of time monitoring our progress and providing support. Even though it has been almost two years since we moved to our house, Nancy continues to check with us to ensure that everything is going well. Selling our former home was a step that we were very apprehensive about, given the difficult real estate market. Nancy determined what was a fair price, then asked other members of her firm to add their own input before placing our house on the market. Of course, she wrote another of her scintillating advertisements, guided us in preparing the house for showing and throughout the negotiating process, and, more quickly than we had thought possible, our house sold for a very satisfactory price. Our concerns bout winding up with two houses and draining our resources turned out to be illusory. The whole experience was extremely gratifying. We had not been looking forward to it at all, but somehow, with Nancy as a guide and support, everything ran like clockwork. We could not recommend Nancy more highly or with more enthusiasm. Less ...

Nancy is a confident and highly motivated Realtor. Her likeable personality made it easy to develop a friendship that has continued after the sale of our home. Nancy always communicated with honest feedback after each showing. Despite the poor housing market Nancy worked very hard to make our sale happen and did a great job!

Helped me buy home
We decided to work with Nancy because we trusted her. Early on in our house search, we were reluctant to commit to a Realtor. Having moved from New York City, most of our recent experiences with agents were unpleasant. As we embarked upon the process of finding a house, we anticipated more of the same. In spite of this trepidation, after a meeting with Nancy, we wanted to work with her. In addition to her knowledge of the area, understanding for the market, and professionalism, her warm disposition and sense of humor endeared her to us. When we asked her to work with us, we knew we were in good hands. We can say with certainty that if it was not for Nancy, we would not have found our new home. After a few disappointments following a whirlwind search, we were ready to give up. However, Nancy encouraged us to keep searching, and eventually ?our home? came on the market. We attribute the success of the deal to her tenacity and superb negotiation skills. And even though all the papers have been signed, Nancy still is a resource for us as new homeowners. We always know we can call her for advice. Less ... More
