Amy was instrumental in helping me get the perfect house for me at the perfect price. She was always up for showing me any house I asked about with an energetic response of "let's go!" I would whole heartedly recommend Amy and her team to anyone buying or selling or both (like me!)

I had an amazing experience with Amy. As soon as she walked into my house I felt comfortable with her. She was excited and positive. She came prepared with comparable homes to show me why we should list my house at a specific price. My home sold within 2 months for very close to the asking price. I am sure it was due to Amy's marketing (as well as the fact that I obviously had an awesome house) :) Her negotiation skills were also impressive, she knows the business and the market and it showed during negotiation. Thanks Amy! Less ... More

Amy and her team are honest, helpful, and knowledgeable. They respond at all hours of the day, even the most basic and small questions. We bought and sold at same time and while the process wasn't as smooth or quick as anyone would like, Amy never gave up and we got it done.

Unsatisfactory. Lack of communication. Did not provide frequent updates. Had to call her to find out what was was going on. Was more intereseted in the buyers needs. Would not use her again.

The communication was terrific the last cog in the wheel is the Attorney that represented the file on your behalf They are the scheduling agent I agree we had a very difficult time getting his closing agent to contact both of us .

I had my condo on the market for six months before I contacted Amy to retain her services. She took a look around, made a few decorating suggestions and proclaimed, "I give myself 45 days to get this home under contract." She did it in about 30. After months and months of unsuccessful showings and one open house after another with another agency, Amy was able to find a cash buyer within a month and we closed 10 days later. She's very tech savvy and moves fast, which is exactly what I needed to sell my property. Amy is "no nonsense" and talks fast, works fast, moves fast. If you want an (appropriately) assertive realtor who is going to HUSTLE, you want Amy to list your home or to help you find a new property. I would work with Amy again without hesitation. Her office staff associates (Steve Ellis, in particular) are also very attentive. Thanks, Amy & Steve! Less ... More

We were first time buyers, and were very happy with Amy. She was prompt in her replies, was able to get us into all of the houses we wanted to look at quickly, and was very on top of her game at all times. She even called us to make sure we liked the house after closing. Will definitely be contacting her if we ever decide to sell, and will absolutely recommend to friends.

Had to purchase a home while outside the USA and Amy made every accommodation to ensure the experience was streamlined and effortless. She is a true agent and will command all aspects of the transaction; and go above and beyond to enlist her extended network for your benefit. After my sale Amy still reaches out to support my assimilation into the new area and serves as a resource to myself and family. I'd highly recommend Amy as a full service, one stop shop agent.

Amy was exceptional in finding us a house in CT. We contacted her on a Friday and by Sunday we had seen over a dozen houses and made an offer on a house. Her knowledge and expertise in the area really made our decision an easy one. Amy is pleasant, easy to work with and very prompt. Once we made our decision her hard work made our transition from renting to owning seamless. She recommended the best people to work with for the mortgage, inspectors and who to close with. It took us exactly five weeks from first contacting Amy to closing on our house! We highly recommend Amy and will most certainly use her expertise in the future if need be. Less ... More

It was a pleasure to work with Amy on our home purchase. The thing that immediately impressed me about her was her incredible responsiveness. We asked her to show us homes on very short notice and she was always willing to work within our tight timelines. As first time home buyers, we also valued her experience in assessing real estate. On a number of occasions, she alerted us to potential problems in homes that we would have overlooked ourselves. She has a good eye for spotting issues in homes that may not be readily apparent to casual observers. Finally, we were really impressed with the great team that Amy has assembled in her office. They were very efficient in handling the logistical issues involved in the closing process. We will definitely work with her again in the future. Less ... More

Amy sold me my house in 2006 and 8 years later, in 2014, when a job relocation opportunity led me away from town I once again enlisted Amy and her army of helpers at Executive Realty to help me sell it, and sell it she did! If you're looking to sell a house in Glastonbury (or any town actually but Glastonbury especially), then Amy is your go-to realtor! She has tremendous intimate knowledge of every nook and cranny of real estate in the town and how the market works within it. They say "every market is different" and I called upon Amy time and time again to explain to me "why" when sale prospects weren't looking so bright versus other towns and seemingly similar houses. She continually sat down with me and went over details specific to my situation, made suggestions, proposed compromises when I might balk and ultimately put my mind at ease. Her communication skills are fantastic, recall of details from previous conversations impeccable and her energy is unbounded! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dynamic and vibrant agent who truly engages with and cares about her customers. Less ... More

We listed our home with Amy and it sold in 4 days......that went smoothly. The only problems we had was one time a realtor showed up with a buyer without us knowing she would show up, and the communication within Amy's office between her assistants could be improved upon. There were multiple people handling different things. No one showed up at the closing and our lawyer had to call the office because he didn't have the deposit check from the buyer at the closing. So Amy's part went good, after that there could be some improvements within her office. Less ... More

My house was under contract within a week and under contract for more than the selling price. If you are looking to list your home, I would highly recommend Amy Rio and Executive Realty.

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 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 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

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 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 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.
Response fromAmy Rio
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. This is what I do for a living 100% dedication. 7 days a week for 24 yrs. I take it to heart when people actually take time to review and have never met me or transacted business with me.

My husband and I were repeat customers to Amy Rio. We highly recommend her services and can't say enough about her expertise in her field. We just bought our third home with Amy and we could not be more pleased. With her and her team of experts, our home-buying experiences have been smooth, pleasant, and successful. We always do and always will recommend her to our family and friends.

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

I would highly recommend Amy to anyone! She has helped us with the sale and purchase of our new home. She truly is knowledgeable and helpful to us. She went the extra mile and above what was expected. She provided us more than an average realtor. She showed us a ton of houses, spent a lot of time with us and was never pushy on any of them! She was extremelly patient and took her time with us until we found the right house. That was one thing we truly appreciated about her. We have been working with her since 2010 and we finally found our new home to build. She helped us with all the details and was honest and upfront with us. Amy is down to earth and has a passion for real estate. You can see that when you meet her. Amy is a nice person also, which is a plus. She has many good qualities in one! Wonderful all around!!

Amy was terrific and made the whole house hunting experience a pleasure. She was always very friendly and easy to work with and was always there when needed and quick to answer emails and voice mails. Her open and honest assessment of features, issues/problem, etc. of the houses visited was instrumental in helping select the right condo for me. I'd highly recommend Amy for anyone looking for real estate purchases

Our process was no easy task (bank delays, numerous renogotiations of sales terms, etc.), but Amy was there to help us through every step of the way. She went above and beyond our highest expectations, and this would not have worked out if it weren't for Amy and her extensive list of resources. Highly recommend!

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. I would highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend Amy at Executive Real Estate to anyone selling or purchasing a home. Tania *Happy* Homeowner Less ... More

Just purchased a home in colchester from Amy, the process was smooth, stress free and fun! She showed us over 40 homes.. And was extremely patient with how selective we were! She found us the perfect home within our budget and closed the deal in under 30 days. We ran into issues with title search towards the end, and her in house staff of attorneys took care of it immediately with no loss of sleep on our end!

I highly recommend Amy Rio as a real estate agent. I purchased a property in Cromwell, CT as buyer from out-of-state. Amy provides prompt and responsive service, is an excellent negotiator and follows up on the little details that make a difference and meaning to the definition of a full service, real estate professional. You will be very well represented with Amy as your realtor.

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.
