As an exclusive buyer agency we do so without conflict of interest, at no additional cost, exceeding expectations at every step. We are your due diligence researcher, investigator, adviser and advocate. We are not salespeople. So if you believe a real estate agency should be working for you and not just the commission, give us a chance to earn your business….and if you are like most clients–loyalty and friendship!

“As a native of the Berkshires’ Henry has a depth of knowledge and experience that is second to none. He met with land planners, town officials and other professionals to ensure accuracy as to property boundaries and environmental conditions.  Henry was a trusted adviser and passionate in first helping us find the right property and then in researching and providing assurance that it satisfied our family’s needs.”

Ira Grossman, Perry’s Peak Richmond, MA

“I am extremely fortunate to have met Henry. He does the research necessary and knows the vast area of the Berkshires. He is a pleasure to work with and very patient with the task of finding the right property which can be daunting. Once you have made a purchase, Henry is still there to help with issues that arise. He met with the conservation commission, environmental consultants  and contractors and helped resolve a challenging title problem. Call him and you will find a new friend while searching for a new home.”
