Best of The Daily News

Thank you Greater Newburyport Area! We are so thrilled and humbled to have named "Best Real Estate Agency" by the Daily News of Newburyport for the eighth year in a row. 

And our very own Mike Mullins was voted Best Real Estate Agent! Although he is a native of Australia, he has called Newburyport home for over 30 years.

According to the Daily News, the results are tabulated from paper ballots distributed by The Daily News via a newspaper special section, and from a poll conducted on their website, newburyportnews.com.

We take pride in serving this community as an independent real estate agency that has been in business for over 25 years. We hope to continue to assist you through the home buying and selling process for many years to come.

Thank you, thank you!

Benefits of Listing your Home in the Summer Months

Many people consider spring the best time to list your home - but the busy selling season in real estate extends throughout the summer months. If you have been considering listing, this is a fantastic time to do so. Here are a few reasons why summer is the time to sell!

More eyes on your home: People love visiting the Greater Newburyport area and Southern NH during the summer months to marvel at the coastline and visit local farms. If your home is on the market, you can expect increased “drive-bys” by eager homebuyers or by people who may suggest your property to family and friends. Make sure the exterior of your home looks fantastic.

Longer Days: People are busy, and the long daylight hours of summer can certainly benefit buyers and sellers when the after-work showings have the advantage of natural light.

Great first impressions: Use the summer months to your benefit by creating a beautiful natural landscape. Have your garden looking its best and your entry ways tidy and neat. Make sure your shrubs and lawn are well-cared for during the showing process.

Wonderful smells! Keep your windows open and fresh flowers out on your surfaces. Having a home that smells nice will keep potential buyers happy.

School’s out: Parents may hesitate to disrupt the kids’ schedules with the selling and buying process during the school year, and may be more likely begin looking and make a purchase during the summer months to have a fresh start in September.
