Testimonials

There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.

 

“They never stopped working! Barbara and Valerie worked around the clock to make sure we found the right home at a good price. They were always available to answer our questions and help us navigate the complex process of buying a house. We are now happily settled in a house that is perfect for us!”

Shana Hiranandani

 

"You both were great and went above and beyond what we thought any real estate agent would do for us. As first-time homebuyers, you made the whole process less stressful, and helped us find the home of our dreams at the same time. Any question we had and anything we needed, we could count on contacting you and hearing back within that hour. We cannot express enough how grateful we are to have had you as our agents, and we thank thank you again."

Dan and Kate Abrahamson


"Valerie and Barbara’s assistance in purchasing a new home went way above our expectations. Relocating from Florida we spoke at length about finding our dream house. We flew up and spent a weekend with Valerie house hunting and ended up making an offer on the first house Valerie showed us. Being out of state in Florida, Valerie guided us through each phase of the home buying process with the utmost professionalism. It was AFTER closing that we really came to appreciate how wonderful Valerie was as a real estate agent and now a friend. In our absence Valerie checked on our new home, was there for delivery of appliances, picked up and forwarded our mail and even found someone to snowplow our driveway! Now we are all settled in and enjoying our new home. We went from house hunting to home loving ... Kudos to Valerie and Barbara, you have one more satisfied customer.

Thank you!"

Barb O'Brien and Deb Patterson

 

"Valerie and Barbara were consummate professionals throughout the searching and buying process and friendly and easy to talk with. It took me a year to find what I was looking for and Valerie was patient, understanding, and very helpful throughout. Then when I was purchasing my condo, I was quite ill, and both Valerie and Barbara helped run my paperwork around and get things done when I couldn't. I recommend them highly to anyone looking for a home in the Valley."

Karen Shelley

 

"This house is a dream come true for us. It was a pleasure to work with experts Barbara and Valerie. Polished, resourceful, efficient, and considerate, they kept our needs at the forefront of the process, took the time to really get to know us, and carefully answered our myriad of questions. From start to finish, their calm, buoyant style enhanced our experience. "

The Averill-Gosselin Family

 

"In a difficult market, Barb’s experience, enthusiasm, and hard work helped us to not just sell our place, but to sell it for the price we were asking. Who could ask for more."

Michele LaRock

 

"Not only did Barbara and Valerie make selling my house a stress-free experience, they sold it in ONE DAY!!!"

Gretchen Bishman

 

"I had lived in my previous home for many, many years when suddenly I was struck with the idea of moving. Soon after I found a home that was a “must have” and I immediately moved forward. This was a fairly anxiety ridden proposition since I had been settled for so long and had not thought of moving at all until suddenly I did. Barbara and Valerie helped me so much. They took care of me every step of the way making the transition easy and effortless. The purchase went off without a hitch and then they guided me through the selling process of my previous home. Again, with kindness and professionalism, they helped me create a successful event and make my dreams a reality. Bravo!!! to Barbara Demerski Real Estate for all their help."

Jo-An Courtemanche, Fresh Air Landscaping

 

"Relocating can be an overwhelming experience, especially when moving to a totally unfamiliar area. Barbara & Valerie turn “overwhelming” into “Complete Welcoming”! They not only grasped our financial limits, they understood our family's needs and found us the perfect home, in addition to ensuring we were connected to the right people for our business needs. We wouldn't ever consider another realtor!"

Annette Griffin & Susan Reardon, owners Nana's Pantry, Rte10 Easthampton

 

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help and services
through this (sometimes bumpy) process. It was good, great, easy and fun
to work with you, and I appreciate all your professionalism, support, and
help. I found you from David's (Atty Bloomberg) recommendation . . . so, in
the spirit of what goes around, comes around . . . if I can ever help you in
return, through references or referrals, I will be more than happy to do
so - just say the word! I wish you well and thank you again for everything."

Dede Schmitt

 

"As first time homebuyers, we were quite nervous and in the dark as far as what was involved. Barbara was incredibly reassuring and took us both under her wings in our home buying adventure. Barbara made the process easy and fun. She was completely on top of every detail and knew exactly who to go to for everything involved. She was always available to us and truly added such ease to the experience. I cannot say enough good things about Barbara. She was a true friend to us. I would recommend her to anyone and will!"
Nicole Poppie

 

"We had our house on the market for 4.5 months and it seemed as though we would never be able to sell it. Then a friend of ours told us about Barbara and Valerie. We met them and the energy they had toward selling our house stunned both of us. We decided to sign on with them, and the Demerski's sold our house in 13 days at higher than asking price. Thank you Barb and Valerie for turning the selling of our house from a nightmare into a dream!"

Chris & Anita Carlin

 

"There is no one who knows Pioneer Valley real estate better than Barbara Demerski. She is the most professional, knowledgeable and skilled agent you will ever find. Barbara and Valerie Demerski are the dynamic duo you want helping you find your home. They made the process of buying our first home a comfortable experience. They helped us through the process in countless ways and were always available for any question we had. We can't recommend them enough."

Gina-Louise Sciarra & Bill Scher

 

"We value very much Barbara's excellent service! Barbara has already proved this by helping us with three successful real-estate transactions in Easthampton and Northampton. Currently Barbara and Valerie manage marketing of our condo in Northampton. We look forward to working with Barbara and Valerie at Barbara Demerski Real Estate! " Congratulations,

"When I think of Barbara D. what comes to mind is integrity, knowledge, ethical and one of the most positive people I know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Barb's passion is real estate!"

CONGRATULATIONS

Connie Fender, The Cornerstone Group

 

"Coming into a new area can be daunting, but working with Barb Demerski eased every worry about buying a home. She assisted with hard work and great advice. Barb is a true professional whose down-to-earth manner and years of experience provide both expertise and comfort. Barb's just the best! Best wishes! "

Marci Caplis

 

"Barbara always goes the extra mile for her clients, but outdid herself recently for an out-of-state client. She assumed the role of general contractor, lining up several contractors (even a metal fabricator) and coordinating their work efforts, to insure compliance with codes and acceptance by the Town. The closing simply would not have occurred without her efforts (literally lasting into the night as reflected by her repeated 11:30 p.m. voice mails!!). It was, needless to say, the most supreme of efforts and reflective of her energies and devotion to her realtor work."

Attorney Len Jekanowski

 

"Barbara and Val, were great to work with! Educated with the market and the process, professional on every level, flexible with time and comfortable to work with while buying a very personal purchase. Our experience was positive one!"

Judy and Tony Rigali

 

"Congratulations on the start of your own Real Estate company. I'm sure that with your enthusiasm, superior customer service and energy that this venture will pay off handsomely in the future."

Phil Szczepanski

 

"It was a lucky day when we first linked up with Barbara Demerski as our realtor. She is a professional in the highest sense of that word, but she remains very, very human. Her main concern is to leave each client hapy in the place tha is right for them."

Jean Higgins and Quentin Quesnell

 

"Barbara never lets you down!"

Connie Coggswell

 

"Dear Barbara, I just saw your ad in the Gazette. I am just thrilled to death for you! Congratulations and best of luck to you! Naturally, if/when we ever consider a move you will be the one and only we contact. All the best."

Carrie Shelffo

 

"As the saying goes: 'The best minute you spend is the one you invest in somebody else.' This, for me, sums up Barbara. She knows her business, loves it and shares this knowledge and love with her clients, who quickly become her friends. Thank you, Barbara, for your expertise and thoughtfulness in selling my home. Sincerely,"

June Smith

 

“When my husband and I were ready to start looking at houses in the Northampton area, I contacted Barbara Demerski. She showed us many options, even though it took us forever to decide on just the right one. Her expertise in knowing the process and her preparedness at every stage made her a pleasure with which to work.Moreover, Barbara provided a buyer for the house that we had been preparing to sell. For this we also appreciate Valerie Demerski, and her tireless treks to the hinterlands of Becket and Lee in order to satisfy the perspective buyer. We couldn’t be more pleased with how things worked out.

Jack and Jesse Martin

 

"If one wants to give a great impression of Northampton, do what Barbara did; she picked us up at the motel on Monday morning and took us to Sylvester’s. We not only enjoyed a lovely meal, but we discussed what was important to us in the way of a house, neighborhood, yard, etc. After a delicious brunch, Barbara knew at that point what we were looking for and what was important to us. After looking at several homes that day we joined Barbara at the Mezzaluna restaurant for dinner and learned a lot more about the town, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and many other interesting things. By this time we knew that we were going to love living in “The Valley.” Well, we signed all the papers at a closing on a cold, snowy day in January about a month later and it was exciting. We love it here, and look forward to the day when we sell our house and buy a condo near downtown. It will be with Barbara Demerski Real Estate because we know we will get excellent, professional service by a very special lady."

Ron and Nancy Hall

 

"Any good agent can find a buyer. Barb's talent is HOLDING THE DEAL TOGETHER! All my best to both of you. "
