Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
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.
From day one we knew we hit the jackpot hiring John as our realtor to purchase a new home. He provided us with so much information about the process, particular home styles and locations and he answered our never ending questions about everything you could possibly imagine from fees to remodeling projects to pool issues to town laws and codes. John is super knowledgable about the buying/selling process and shares his knowledge in a way that makes it very easy to understand. And when the rare occasion occurred that he didn't have an immediate answer from memory, he found it for us right away. My favorite thing about John was his responsiveness-- I am not an overly patient person and have worked with agents in the past that were not right on top of things and I never had to worry about this with John. He replied to every single call, text and email right away and always made sure I understood his response. He went above and beyond when we finally decided on a home to make sure that we were happy and guided us through the negotiation process with fair and honest information. John far exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy and/or sell a home. You will not be disappointed!
As a real estate photographer, I have had the pleasure of working with John on a number of occasions. He is always professional, informative and goes above and beyond for clients. Every referral I've sent his way rave about their experience working with him. I highly recommend him for the next home you buy or sell.
This review is much too long overdue! To say our life since moving into our new home has been a little bit crazy is the understatement of the Century! In any event, I want to wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend John White as your realtor. John was our buyer's realtor when we sold our home and I knew after our very first meeting that I wanted John to represent us as we moved forward to build our dream home. John is the epitome of professionalism, while also keeping it casual and stress-free. He was very patient with me as I drove him absolutely crazy with every upgrade in our new build, and talked me down off the ledge on numerous occasions when I would start to stress-out about every little detail. John is exactly the type of guy you want on your side when hammering out negotiations. He is fair, thorough, courteous and gets the job done. We are insanely grateful and thankful to have had John by our side during the scary process of building our forever home and I would not have changed a thing! Best of luck to your continued success John!
John helped me find the exact home I was looking for! I’m so grateful for all the work he put into finding me the house that I wanted. For a first time home owner the process was overwhelming and I’m grateful for the guidance and expertise that John brought to make sure I understood the process every step of the way. He also put me in contact with a great lender who also helped make the process go smoothly. I would definitely recommend friends or anyone in the market to contact John. Thank you again!
John sold my house in 1 weekend in NH. John went above and beyond what was aspected of him. John is a very friendly all around guy. I would recommend him to all your family and friends that need a GOOD realtor.
