When my family realized we needed more room, I turned to Robin Bettencourt. I had decided to sell our house myself, but figured, after looking around, that we would need help finding a new home. I had nothing but poor experiences with realtors, so I approached Robin skeptically. I explained that I did not want her help selling our home, that we had a strict price ceiling, that we wanted to remain close to -- if not in -- Portsmouth, and that we needed at least two bedrooms, preferably three. What was wonderful was that Robin listened, carefully and respectfully. She didn’t try to talk me into – or out of – anything. She just nodded and made it clear she understood. And then she went to work, showing me only houses that fit what I’d outlined; never trying to get me to list our house with her. The house she found for us was perfect, and remains so today, 24 years later. I still think fondly of what Robin did for us when I look in the mirror hanging in the front hall that she gave us as a house warming gift.
Several years ago I was able to purchase a house in Strawbery Bank in Portsmouth. As a first time home buyer, Robin advised me on the value of the neighborhood, the condition of the house and was instrumental in negotiating a fair price with the seller. From there on through the closing she handled everything seamlessly. She was professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. Considering the ease of the transaction and her personal attention, I would not hesitate to recommend her as an agent for purchase and/or sale of a property.
My wife and I were looking for a colonial home in the south end of Portsmouth. We were working with several realtors who kept taking us to Rye, North Hampton and other locations that were not Portsmouth. When we began to work with Robin Bettencourt, she listened to what we wanted and what we could afford. She then asked if she could show us a house, that was not for sale, to see if it was a style and size that we might be interested in buying. She nailed it and we expressed interest, if she could find a similar house that was for sale. We didn’t hear from her for a while, then one day, around noon, she called. A house that met our desires was coming on the market that day. She had made an appointment for 4PM, making us the first people to see the house. The house was perfect, we made an offer and bought it. There was a line up behind us of people who also wanted that house.
Robin listens and follows up. She didn’t waste our time and hers, looking at houses she knew we would not be interested in buying. Robin is an outstanding professional realtor and now a friend.
Monik is more than just an amazing realtor, and anyone who has had the pleasure of working with her will wholeheartedly agree. She recently helped my boyfriend and I purchase our very first house in Hampton, NH, and we would have never found the place we now call home without her.
She never hesitated to ask the right questions and her extensive knowledge of the seacoast helped us immensely. Her enthusiasm to help and willingness to educate us are just two of the numerous examples that illustrate her true passion for the work she does.
The personal connection she develops with her buyers is unlike any realtor that I’ve met before. Her patience pairs perfectly with her witty sense of humor and at one point it was as if she knew exactly what we wanted before we even did.
Our relationship didn’t end on the day we closed- not only did we gain an amazing home but we also gained a lifelong friend. She went above and beyond what is expected of an agent, and didn’t even mind when we would send her dozens of listings in the middle of the night.
Who ever said purchasing a home was stressful clearly did not have Monik as a realtor. She handled all of the behind the scenes work to make the process as seamless as could be. From the bottom of our hearts, we cannot thank you enough for all of your unconditional support throughout this adventure.
I would highly recommend Monik as a realtor to anyone who is looking to find their very own, home on the seacoast.
