"Merrill Berkery is the most professional, polished and just darn nice agent I’ve ever worked with. She got us over asking price for our home! Her attention to detail, understanding of the marketplace in Arlington and the mentality of potential buyers put her in the top tier. Talk to other agents. Hire Merrill."
"I highly recommend Merrill as a selling agent, and if we were buying in the area, I would choose her as a buying agent in a second! She went above and beyond to make the process of selling as easy as possible for us. She also has impeccable taste, so following her advice will get your house in amazing shape to sell. Merrill has a good grasp of the local market, excellent negotiation skills, and is always available and ready to answer questions or help solve potential issues. So glad she was on our team!"
"My wife and I just bought our first home and we used Merrill as our real estate agent. As newbies we had very little knowledge or experience and lots of questions. She was patient with us and brought all of the experience and knowledge that we lacked. She was honest and always respectful that we felt comfortable before putting in an offer, which for us this was by far the biggest decision we have ever made and we were quite nervous.
In such a competitive market we would have been lost without her and we'll be going to her for all of our future real estate needs." - Sean
"Work with Merrill if you want a realtor who knows their stuff, listens to their clients, and always has your best interest in mind. Merrill’s advice was invaluable and because of her savvy expertise we were able to get a house beyond what we originally thought possible. Not only is Merrill great, but she also surrounds herself with the best of the best. Because of Merrill’s network, I felt like we had a solid team we could trust to guide us through the tricky process of buying a house. Merrill is a wonderful person to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell." - Jaclyn
"I couldn't be more happy to recommend Merrill Berkery to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. In addition to being extremely personable she is completely knowledgeable about real estate and Town/City rules and regulations. We converted our 2-family to condos and sold the upstairs unit. Merrill was very professional in establishing the correct targeted selling price based on neighborhood comps. She was spot on. She was also helpful in finding lawyers, brokers, tradespeople, movers, etc. for us to interview and work with. Merrill is also very good at finding the calm within the chaos and was very reassuring during the whole process. Again, I highly recommend Merrill Berkery for your next real estate project. You won't be disappointed."
