A good friend recommended Martha Laitin to act as buyer’s agent when we first started looking at possible homes in Belfast. What a great recommendation that turned out to be. From beginning to successful closing on our new place, we had confidence in Martha as she handled the process with great listening skills, knowledge of the local market, real estate expertise, creativity, and a sense of humor. She listened well when we described what we thought we were looking for and then adjusted as our wants changed. Because we were coming to look at possibilities from a bit of a distance, efficiency in arrangements was important and Martha was always able to arrange things so that we could accomplish the most during our stays in town. Once we settled on a place that we liked, she gave good advice on strategy and then, when it appeared that our offer was identical to another, she used her creativity to come up with a potential tie-breaker. She then prepared us for the closing in a way that covered all bases. Once we settle in Belfast, we will certainly recommend Martha to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell their homes. In fact, we have already recommended her to our seller’s agent down here when he asked us for a recommendation of a realtor in the Belfast area in case he has clients who are looking to move into that area. Five stars!
