Client Testimonials

"Betsy was simply lovely to work with! She asked the questions we didn't know or think to ask. She arranged for contractors/servicemen to come to the house to provide quotes for work that needed to be done on very short notice. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the South Shore and was able to offer local insight on neighborhoods. She kept track of the entire home purchasing process and stayed on top of all the relevant parties to make sure everything was in place for us to close on time. I feel incredibly lucky to have found her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor on the South Shore!" Hannah and Brian, Hingham

"Betsy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was along for the ride every step of our journey as we purchased new construction that wasn't yet complete. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area, prompt in her communication and always looking out for our best interest. She was detail oriented and provided many great recommendations of resources for the buying and moving process." Kylie and Scott, Cohasset

"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Betsy while searching for and purchasing our first home. Betsy was very professional, helpful, thoughtful, and responsive and her knowledge of town of Hingham and local market was extremely valuable. As first-time homebuyers, Betsy provided all of the support we could have hoped for, offering guidance and recommendations, as necessary, throughout the entire home buying process. Given that we were purchasing during during a time of much uncertainty (COVID-19), Betsy did a wonderful job of making the whole experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. Since we closed, Betsy has continued to make herself available for any questions and provided a number of tips and recommendations for us as new Hingham residents. My husband and I would both highly recommend Betsy." Alex and Mike, Hingham
