"As a life-long West Newbury resident, I recently had the opportunity to work with real estate professional, Deb Hamilton, and I've been very impressed with both her personal and professional skills! The transaction involved 3 sellers with strong personalities and different goals, 2 buyers with very specific needs, and several town oversight boards and a Massachusetts conservation organization, each with their own high standards for how things should be done. Deb handled it all with a savvy blend of knowledge, tact, firmness, patience and enthusiasm, from the very first negotiations to the final approvals, to everyone's satisfaction. Wow! Good job, Deb"

"We want to thank you for always being available when we needed you! We were so happy to have you as our Realtor! Thank you for making our "house transition" to Pine Hills so smooth."

"You are classy compared to any of what I have met thru the Real Estate world. True Phil deals with most and just sits there and listens but with me, I have to be real comfortable to know if it's a go or a wait a minute. Your honesty and your genuine like of people seems to bring everyone together with that comfortable zone that one can work with. No matter how much money one has no one wants to be taken for a ride especially not me. We have worked very hard to get where we are and to have you respect us like you do is somewhat refreshing."

"Our house had been on the market for 5 months with another realty company and we had not even received an offer- nothing even ridiculously low. We had no real contact with our realtor except to let us know that everyone who saw the house "hated it" or was "very disappointed" or had similiar comments.
We heard by word of mouth that Deb Hamilton was the one to contact if we wanted the "best in the business". We contacted Deb and guess what- we sure think she is the best in the business! On our very first meeting, she told us squarely what was wrong with the house and what need to be done to sell it. She provided us with a vast network of stagers, painters, carpenters,and haulers who were reliable and knowledgable and she was in contact with us and them to ensure a timely completion of the job. She informed and reminded us of all the things needed to be done before selling: septic inspection, carbon monoxide alarms, meter readers, etc. Before long and right before our eyes, our house was transformed from a picture post card of 1974 to a modern up to date comfy home. The very next weekend we had 2 offers- one more than our asking price!!
Through a demanding and confusing period, she was there for us- to keep us sane and keep our sense of humor. She earned far more than just being a realtor, she a is friend. Mary and I would recommend her without reservation to anyone putting their house on the market. Her knowledge, promptness, honesty, and helpfulness will sell any house!"

"We listed our home with Deb Hamilton, RE/MAX on the River, in 2004. Deb?s knowledge of the total real estate market in the North Shore area from market value to qualifying and showing our home to potential buyers resulted in not one, but two offers on the same day, with the second offer a little over our asking price to assure we would select that offer. An expedited closing resulted in a final closing less than 30 days from the date of the Sales Offer and Purchase Agreement.
In order to obtain an acceptable Sale and Purchase Agreement in the current North Shore marketplace and at the listed price for our home at over $725,000, Deb had to go the extra mile to find qualified buyers. She used all of her knowledge and experience in both real estate and the North Shore local area, along with her extensive sales ability to accomplish the task successfully. She developed a wonderful web site Virtual Tour of our home incorporated within her web site, and also included it in the national Re/Max web site for national exposure. She updated it as and when appropriate with new photos. She never took the easy way out and never recommended a price reduction. Deb?s sales style is professional and not pushy, as some realtors tend to be. After we located out of the state and left the home empty Deb went out of her way to make sure she arrived at the house early for open house and/or showings and made sure the home was in tip top shape and all plumbing, electrical, appliances, and lights were in working order. From the first day she quickly learned the main selling points of our house and made sure every potential buyer understood these points. Deb also followed through with the details required to assure we went down the right path from sales offer to sales contract, to the closing without any glitches.
Deb?s knowledgeable, friendly, polite, and professional approach to the selling of our home makes us pleased and proud to supply this unsolicited reference for such an outstanding realtor. We highly recommend Deb to anyone thinking of selling or purchasing a home in the North Shore and Newbury/Newburyport area of MA."

"Deborah Hamilton was the listing broker for my previous residence on 3 Marshall Drive, as well as the listing broker on the property I recently purchased at 2 Church Street in West Newbury, Massachusetts. It is a unique property that was listed at over one million dollars and it required a unique approach to marketing. Additionally, the property had some fairly complex legal issues surrounding the sale; such as a conservation restrictions, title 61 A conveyance, and a lien on a portion of the property. These issues necessitated complex negotiations between my husband and I, the town, and the sellers. Deborah proved to be a fair and diplomatic liaison. Without her tireless assistance and creative problem-solving, the sale might have fallen through.
The skills that make Deborah Hamilton a competent broker are her astute grasp of the trends in the real estate market, an ability to accurately assess market values, her understanding of the needs of her customer, her intuitive knack for discerning qualified buyers; accompanied by strong organizational skills and financial acumen. She is personable and likeable.
The attributes that make Deborah Hamilton an extraordinary real estate broker are her ability to read and interpret blueprints, her knowledge of architecture and building and remodeling techniques, and her background in gardening and landscaping. Additionally, Deborah is an accomplished equestrian which gives her unique skills for marketing equine properties. She is highly regarded within the community and has a reputation for integrity, as is demonstrated by her positive working relationships with local banks and attorneys. On a personal level, she is articulate and charming. I would highly recommend Deborah Hamilton as the premier real estate broker for West Newbury and the surrounding communities."

"Deborah Hamilton acted as our buyer?s agent for a recent land purchase on Plum Island. We wished to purchase the lot abutting our existing property. Over the years, we had made a few attempts to contact the owner and negotiate a sale but without any success.
Deb?s extensive knowledge of the area, in particular the nuances of Plum Island property, helped us to contact the owner and place an offer on the table he couldn?t refuse. She worked with both parties until a price was negotiated and walked us through the financial and legal aspects of the purchase.
Just one of the qualities that made working with Deb a unique experience was her exceptional availability. We would pick up the phone and dial her mobile number and we were able to reach her, not her voicemail, every time. She always had the answers to our endless questions or the resources to point us in the right direction.
We?re pleased to recommend Deb Hamilton as a real estate broker, whether you?re buying or selling. She is a tireless professional who worked with us every step of the way until our goals were achieved."
