"We sold our home in five days through Molly Bartlett. She is incredibly well-organized, resourceful, and kind. She helped us through every step of the selling process from staging the house, pricing, and giving feedback on potential buyers’ reactions.
The first offer on our house didn’t work out. It was a stressful moment but Molly was calm and found another buyer the next day. I was amazed at how smooth the process was. Molly has our highest recommendation. We could not have had a better realtor."

She followed up with me frequently to see how I was doing which surprised me a good deal. it was " above and beyond" what I expected based on dealing with other realtors in the not too distant past. She was absolutely outstanding and if there is a way to formally recognize her excellence, please do so."
