Helped me buy home
We met Greg at an open house last summer. A few months later, when we were ready to see homes, I emailed and asked him to show us some options. Greg was knowledgeable, responsive, and always listened to our voice. Most of all, he understood the trend of the local market. Also he knew many things about the renovation and maintenance of houses. The impression I got was that he did not try to just make a deal but he tried to find a home that met our expectations. After seeing several options, I found a home on Zillow which looked perfect for my family. I emailed him to see the property and he replied to me in an hour and he showed us the home the very next day. We made an offer on the same day and it was accepted next day. Now we own the home thanks to Greg's help. We really love our new home. I would recommend him highly. Thanks, Greg! Less ... More

Our experience with Greg spanned several months and required a lot of travel for him. Even when we seemed to be hitting dead-ends and wasting his time he was unflappable. He could quickly survey a property and determine structural problems or strengths. When it came to bidding on a property his recommendations for mortgage lenders and inspectors were spot-on. I doubt we could have purchased the property we chose without his help and calm demeanor. I cannot say enough good things about Greg, he guided us through the process like a skilled surgeon. Less ...

Greg was recommended by friends who also used him as a buyer's agent. He is very knowledgeable about the local housing market and about the process in general. He also knows a lot about houses - he was able to point out various features that escaped our attention, and suggest possible fixes and improvements. He was available in person, by phone and by e-mail. We got a great deal on a house in Amherst that we are very happy with, and Greg played an important role in our successful housing search. Less ...

My wife and I were very happy with Greg as our agent. He listened to our preferences, showed us only homes we would be interested in, and when it came time to put down an offer, was very flexible with his time and negotiation expertise. As a first time home buyer it was also good to work with someone who can tell you the process and be there to answer questions and help make decisions along the way. I highly recommend him.

I am so happy to have found Greg Haughton! The house was on the market for a year and nothing was happening. My agent Valerie Doss , in Cape Coral Florida found Greg, and everything changed. Greg is not only a Real Estate Professional, but a contractor as well. He knows immediately what needs to be done, rearranged or fixed in a home to make it just right for viewing and getting it sold. He also arranges for competent people to take care of having repairs and upgrades completed professionally. This was so important for me as I no longer was living in the area and could not take care of this myself. Greg is patient, honest, responsible, truly a man of his word, and fully trustworthy. I highly recommend Greg to anyone who is in the selling or buying process. A wonderful person to work with. I am so grateful, thank you Greg!!!!! Less ... More

Greg is a very good realtor. I would recommend home buyers to use his service. He is knowledgeable and knows the local real estate market well. I was a first time home buyer and Greg gave me advice that made a lot of senses. He is very flexible with time. Greg was able to show me the units I were interested almost immediately and almost at any time I proposed, even late at night.

Hello Zhuangsheng, Thank-you for the kind comments, and I very much enjoyed working with you too! I guess my many years of restaurant ownership prepared me well for; late, flexible, long days... Also, this is a fantastic home to be in as you study for your Phd over the next few years. Warmest wishes in 2015! Greg

Greg was tireless and helped me find just the right house. I was new to the area, didn't know the neighborhoods, and the market was tricky. Greg navigated all the terrain with ease, negotiated on my behalf, and helped me to find a wonderful new home. I can't say enough good things about his overall knowledge and his friendly demeanor.

Helped me buy home
As first-time home buyers Greg made the process so easy for us to understand. His patience, professionalism, and knowledge was a tremendous help. His eye for detail to look for things only an home inspector would see was a great asset. We were unsure of the type of home we wanted or the location so Greg showed us several styles of homes in 7 different cities/towns to educated us on all the different options. His flexibility, humor, and personality made the home buying experience a tremendous success. On our home purchase he negotiated a better deal for us than we thought we could get and save us money on both the sale price and closing costs. We highly recommend Greg to anyone looking for an honest and hardworking Realtor. Less ... More

Greg was a joy to work with. When we looked at houses he demonstrated a level of knowledge and insight about construction and building issues that you would normally only find with an inspector. He has a great sense of humor, is flexible and patient, and when it came to helping with the the contract issues and so forth was helpful and detail oriented. In comparison to other agents I've had in the past, Greg was a few notches above. I would highly recommend him, and in fact, wish the town I am moving from, where I am selling my house still, was closer, so that he could represent me there as well. Less ... More

Incredibly knowledgeable and nice guy. Greg was a rockstar realtor for us. He set us up with some great local companies to help us through the inspection, loan, and legal stuff. But most importantly, Greg's negotiation skills were incredible, and we got the place we wanted for a lot less than we expected.

Greg is wonderfully charming, upbeat, relaxed and quick to respond! He was so fun to work with - we had many laughs along the way. He seems to really like people and never had a negative thing to say about anyone He has an artistic eye and was able to give us wonderful suggestions for showing our house to it's best advantage. His pictures of the house looked like they came out of "House Beautiful" magazine! He always returned messages and calls on the same day, which was astounding given how busy he is. Greg gave us good advice at every turn, but was also completely respectful of our wishes, too. We highly recommend him. Less ... More

Greg was always patient with all of our questions as first-time homebuyers, and incredibly responsive. Our house came on the market and we were interested immediately. We let Greg know and he got us the first showing - the day after it came on the market! We put our offer in that same night. Two months later the house was ours. If it were not for Greg's availability, expertise in negotiating, and dedication to us, we would never have had such a smooth homebuying process. He bent over backward for us. We recommend him highly. Less ... More

Greg really impressed us. We had talked to a few other agents before deciding to work with Greg and we are glad we did. Greg really thought of all the details. In our price range there was a huge range of houses that needed TLC or major improvements. Greg's knowledge and experience with home improvement provided a great sense of optimism and vision, but also a healthy dose of reality when needed. We never felt pressured or rushed. We looked at 13 houses before finding THE ONE. We knew it right away, and so did Greg. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions. Greg was always there- late night emails and phone calls. He's even checked in with us to see how things are doing now that we are in the house. I can't say enough. Honest, responsive, friendly, knowledgeable... why work with anyone else? Less ... More

My wife Lisa and I contacted Greg to help us buy a condo in Amherst for our college-attending son to live in. Greg was incredibly helpful and kind, often going out of his way to help with the process as we were 2 hours away, including picking up my son to view the condo and dropping him back off at school. Greg's knowledge of the area, his patience while we looked at numerous places, his advice on the pro's and con's of each, his assistance in the negotiations, and his always smiling and pleasant personality really made the whole process very enjoyable. I have bought and sold several houses over the years and worked with several agents, and I can honestly say that Greg has been the best of them all. I whole-heartedly recommend him and I know I will use him again when I sell the condo after my son's graduation (hopefully under 5 years from now!). Less ... More

We were looking for an Amherst home last summer and had started our search with another realtor. Not sure why, but that realtor did not seem overly interested in helping us. We found Greg through this website and boy are we glad we did! Greg worked tirelessly with us, never once declining our desire to view houses found on this site (and we looked at quite a few,) and making good suggestions on viewing others he thought might meet our needs. As married couples often do, we at times, had conflicting opinions, but we felt Greg listened to both of us and really helped us form a consensus. When we finally found a home we agreed on, Greg did a fantastic job of assisting us through the nerve wracking negotiation phase and final sale process. Several months later, we are now selling our previous home, through Greg of course, and we could not be more confident that he's the man to get the job done. So contact Greg (maybe he'll show you our house,) and get ready to meet a consummate professional you'll trust and enjoy working with! Less ... More

Carolyn, Thanks for the note! What I like about this business is using all my people skills in connecting with people. Many times buyers do not know what they want and i need to seek it out to better understand what is important to them. Many times this process takes seeing many homes and lengthy discussions. Also, thank-you for trusting me with the sale of your other home this summer of 2013! Sincerely, Greg

I was looking for a very specific property. Among other things I was looking for one close to Amherst center which would provide rental income potential within a particular price range. Greg Haughton found more than one property that matched what I was seeking. Greg's help in evaluating each property exceeded my expectations and previous experience. His knowledge of town regulations, building codes and the rental market were invaluable. I was extremely impressed to find that Greg knew at least two of several other professionals which I would need along the way, including a property appraiser and various trades people. There was no favoritism or attempt to influence my decisions. All of Greg's references were able to provide top quality service at reasonable and honest rates. Greg has complete knowledge of the real estate market along with all the attendant processes. He is an excellent guide throughout from A to Z. I truly enjoyed working with Greg. His personality is friendly and easy going while totally professional. I not only would but have recommended Greg Haughton to friends and when I am ready to purchase my next property, I will not call anyone but Greg. Less ... More

When looking at homes, Greg heard what we were looking for and narrowed our search accordingly so we viewed homes that were in our price range as well as some of the components important to us. I was really impressed with his negotiation skills. It was always clear to us that he had our best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Greg as an agent.

I lived in Amherst, MA for 27 years and I dealt with another agent in previous occasions, but my sister-in-law suggested that I hire Greg to sell my home. I contacted Greg and we started working on the house. I live in Michigan so I traveled to Amherst, MA to see what needed to be done on the house in order to make it appealing to a potential buyer in a buyer?s market. Greg worked with me on some project and found a contractor to do the job. We decided to replace some appliances, to repaint the house, etc. 95% of the ideas and improvements were suggested by Greg and the contractor did them exactly as Greg suggested. But Greg did also some things, as for example taking care and beautifying the garden. Then I returned to Michigan so Greg was left in charge of the coordination and supervision of the work. He acted as a general contractor. I returned to Amherst for another week towards the end of the project and after that the house went on the market. Greg did a superb job on marketing the house. He is the best. After this experience I consider Greg a good friend. He is hard-working, friendly, good mannered, patient, and has a very nice personality, which helped many times when my patience was not at its best. Thank you very much, Greg. Less ... More
