Working with Becky was a breeze. We had many issues come up in a short close, and Becky went above and beyond our expectations to assist. She truly took a world of stress off our shoulders having a knowledgeable and professional agent in our corner.
Cody and Heather Holt-Franklin, MA
We had a wonderful experience working with Becky Dalke and her team on the sale of our home. Having lived in Shrewsbury off and on for the past 18 years we would stop by an occasional open house and more likely than not it was a Becky Dalke listing. Her professionalism selling houses was fantastic and the best we have seen. (I’m retired AF so we have moved and seen a lot) We knew she would the one to sell our house when the time came. We weren’t disappointed. From the first meeting to the final closing simply the best! We highly recommend Becky and her team for your real estate needs.
Ron and Bert Reinertson-Shrewsbury, MA

Selling house is very hard especially when you live there many many years with emotional attachment to your home. If you sell your house in Shrewsbury, Westborough, Northborough, Southborough area, I would highly recommend you to work with professional listing agent, Becky Dalke. At beginning of the process, she will lay out the comparison sheet that will be very helpful for you to understand the current market, the past sells and who you compete with, you will have a right expectation. Coming to list price, she may play low-ball based on your situation to attract more active buyers, but market will respond to bring you up. At the middle of process, there always be something coming out, she is very experienced to handle them in a fair way so the process will keep moving forward for both parties. During the process and before closing, her assistant Meghan will help you to know your responsibilities and make sure everything is ready - very helpful. My transaction went very smooth with Becky's help, two week preparation before going to market, one open house to get multi offers and in less than 40 days it's sold! That's how efficient you work with Becky's team. Thanks!

Ziqing Wang & Guang Qi-Northborough, MA
I am a first time home buyer. Because of my character and work, I’m very picky about my choices and when it comes to big investments like buying a house, you want to be in good hands. I initially started this journey with Redfin. One of my colleagues suggested that to me. I don’t suggest that to anyone based on my experience. If you are looking for a generic house, maybe, but it did not work for me. After loosing on 3 offers (it took me 4 months to find them), I realized I had the wrong agent. I started to search and found Kay Reed. She is very organized and professional. She listens to you and gives you the best options. She didn't push me to do this or that. When she comes with you to a house, she tells you what are the pros and cons and of course at the end, you have to decide. All in all, if you want to work with a professional agent, Kay is the right choice. No wonder why she sales so many houses a year. I owe her a big thank you.
Navid Manuchehrabadi-Marlborough, MA
Kay Reed is an outstanding Buyer's Agent! We were downsizing after 25yrs. plus in our home. Finding a new home was an emotional journey and Kay was excellent demonstrating patience and guidance along the way. Thanks Kay! We highly recommend Kay to all looking for a new home!
Bob and Anne Dooley-Grafton, MA
Kay Reed is an agent that is above and beyond knowledgeable about real estate. She is available for questions around the clock. She dedicates herself to her work and never seems to take time off. I had a million questions every step of the way when buying my house and she answered all of them very  promptly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent! Her passion for her job really shines through!
Christa Flynn and Tina Hayes-Worcester, MA
Kay was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent. Kay is highly professional and has extensive local property knowledge and suggested us multiple location options that matched our requirements. She did a thorough interview with us to understand our requirements and provided the right information  about each listing and also arranged showings as per our convenience. Kay answered all our questions patiently and was always prompt in her response. She offered excellent service, advice and helped us make informed decisions. Overall, we are very happy to have her with us for the closing of our dream home recently.
M Suraparaju and S Navulur-Grafton

Becky Dalke and team are expert professionals in what they do. These days selling a property requires special skills and reliable tools in place besides very effective market analysis, advertising and perfect execution of all aspects during the process of closing after the purchase and sale has been signed. Becky and her team are much focused, extremely prompt and most important they have abilities in striking perfect balance knowing what is important for the seller and buyer. This alone can make a big difference for a seller because the house going back on market is a tremendous loss of time and a major inconvenience. My wife and I are very thankful for having Becky and her team help us selling our house for a remarkable price!

Rao and Nirmala Maddula-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky is THE best agent in the Worcester County area. Very knowledgeable, very responsible, very responsive, never gives up, polite and professional. Problem solver. Our house selling process couldn’t be such smooth without her help. Definitely recommend her to anyone who needs to sell a house.

Lijuan Pi-Shrewsbury, MA

I cannot say enough about Becky. She is highly professional and very knowledgeable about the local area. She will work hard to get you the best offer on your home. She is amazing in marketing your home. Should you need work done and or staging she is your go to person. She has many great contacts whom she has formed relationships with and they will get the job done right away so your home can get on the market as fast as possible. When you choose her know that you have chosen the best person to be part of your marketing team. She sold our home during the open house which made us very happy. Can’t say enough about her.

Mark and Nancy Freeman-Shrewsbury, MA

Selling a house is a complex process and it could become extremely overwhelming, when I initially was trying to do it all by myself. All the time, effort and expertise required to move the process forward mounted to a level that I could no longer afford. I am glad that I found Becky to help me.  With Becky's deep knowledge about the local market as well as the real estate sector in general, her comprehensive quantitative market analysis skills, I felt the transaction was in good hand and so much relieved. Every steps of the way, she gave me advice, helped me make the right decision. I am also impressed by Becky's excellent team which ensures the process was handled professionally all the way through. I would recommend Becky to anyone.

Li Cao and Xiaoding Wu-Shrewsbury, MA

We are glad we chose to work with Becky. Every step of the way she gave us the right advice, from a list of upgrades to make before the sale, to the listing price, to dealing with offers (and choosing the best one), and to handling all the details before the sale. She even went to the Town Offices for us to help with our Water and Electric bills. She and her team were a pleasure to work with!

Steve and Katy Todd-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky is great. All of her decisions are backed by data and years of experience. As we worked through the sale all moved exactly as she said it would in the beginning. Through the sale I was out of State. Becky was able to use her network of contractors to tie up loose ends while I was away.

John and Lin Boldt-Shrewsbury, MA
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Kay Reed is! We were first time home buyers and not only did she make the entire process of buying a house stress-free for us, she actually made us laugh and enjoy every step! We were also newer to the area and she was very knowledgeable about all  the towns in the area that we were looking to live and made sure that we got the perfect house for us with all the parameters that we were looking for! We had so many questions at all hours of the day and Kay always responded - via email, text, and/or phone - and helped us feel comfortable as we prepared for closing. We can't recommend Kay enough! Look no further if you're looking to buy a house :)
Jay and Aparna Kachoria-Millbury, MA

Well, she did it again! Another successful house sale only 1 day after the open house!

Becky Dalke is confident, knowledgeable and always looking out for her clients best interests. She puts you at ease as she tackles every little bump in the road. One issue at a time, never letting me worry about the "what ifs”. Totally confident her skills would take us to the finish line, and they did! The process moved along quickly due to her invaluable list of "go to” people. When you need prep work done, mention you’re working with Becky and you get an immediate response. I went from thinking about selling to "Sold” in less than 3 months!

I couldn’t be happier to have this behind me so quickly. Thank you, Becky!!

Paula Clapp-Shrewsbury, MA

Recently, we had the pleasure of working with Becky for selling our home. We wouldn’t be exaggerating if we called her a phenomenal real-estate agent. Becky’s expertise, incredible instincts, and enthusiasm for the real estate market made us as sellers, feel confident about selling our home. From renovation to sale, she has been at our side, walking us through every step of the process, always thinking ahead and going the extra mile for us. Selling a home is not an easy process, but Becky makes it seem effortless: we were very impressed by her detail-oriented workstyle, her impeccable work ethic, and her positive attitude through all the ups and downs of the sale process. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell their home!

Ram and Sumathi Jamakandi-Shrewsbury, MA

We had a great experience with Kay as our Buyer's Agent. She has a great personality. She uses multiple methods of communications: email, phone, text, depending on the urgency of the communication needs, and no matter which method, her communication is always prompt. We felt that she is always  there when we needed her. She understood what we need and was able to guide and advise us wisely with her knowledge and experience and industry connection. She has great connections of people. When we needed suggestions for real state attorney, home inspector, mold treatment specialist, or moving companies, etc. she was always really helpful. She rarely gave us only one name, she provided a few choices she thought highly of and she let us to call and choose. We had such great experience with all the people she suggested, we felt one could never go wrong with Kay's approval. She was instrumental in helping us negotiate the final offer, which was a significant lower than the initial listing price. She watched out for us and guide us through every step of the process. We couldn't have asked for a better buyer's agent! We would highly recommend Kay to anyone who is looking for a house!

Lisa Zhou and Lei Wang-Northborough, MA

Working with Becky on the sale of our home recently was a great experience. She has the local knowledge that was helpful in making the right decisions. It was very refreshing to work with a realtor that is great at what she does. Her professional and knowledgeable suggestions for staging our home got us multiple offers over asking price at the open house even around the holidays. We are very happy with her services and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor.

Joseph and Cynthia Fletcher-Shrewsbury, MA

We had very limited time when looking for a property in the area we relocated last summer. Kay was very accommodated of our schedule and provided lots of information helping us settled. Very knowledgeable and resourceful agent that we would certainly recommend.

Huoy-Jii Khoo and Wen-Hua Du-Northborough, MA

I was very lucky to find such an excellent agent and caring person like Becky. Her local knowledge impressed me since I met her for the first time. The comparative analysis she did to determine the correct sell price convinced me that I could not have found a better agent to sell my house. I was  out of the country during the selling process, but everything went so smoothly that it was as if I was there. No problems at all. Selecting not only the best sale options but the most appropriate buyers was something that I really appreciated about her too.

Arben Cico-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay is highly knowledgeable in Worcester county real estate market. Accidental meeting with Kay on one open house led to helping us in selling our existing house and buying new house.Starting from our meeting we immediately knew we are in good hands.Kay was always available even outside of  business hours. Kay made home buying experience for us enjoyable rather than stressful. In Kay we not only found a highly professional real estate agent but also a dear friend.

Raj Singh-Grafton, MA

Becky was recommended to us by a friend. We interviewed 3 different listing agents and Becky came well prepared to our first meeting. She knew everything about the market in Shrewsbury and explained in detail about how to sell our home. We followed her suggestions and the house had an offer within 2 weeks. Becky helped save us 10K after our home inspection. She kept us updated on every detail of the selling process. She provided feedback after every showing which was extremely valuable. To sum it up, she was AWESOME and we would recommend her highly to anyone wanting to sell their home.

Lonnie LaPorte-Shrewsbury, MA

I recently purchased a house in Shrewsbury and Becky was my Buyers agent. She and her team were extremely helpful from start to finish and I highly recommend them.

When viewing properties, she pointed out the good and bad, she researched the history of the property and performing comparisons with recent sales so I knew whether the asking price was reasonable. When I found a house I wanted to put an offer on, Becky made a number of suggestions to make my offer stand out above others (very important in the seller’s market!).

Becky supported me every step of the way during the buying process. She recommended actions I could take to overcome issues encountered along the way, she recommended mortgage consultants, real-estate lawyers...she reminded me of things I needed to do next in the process, she kept meticulous notes about items we had negotiated and things to look for at the final walk-through. Even leading up to the closing her team was there to remind me of the utilities I needed to setup. And I also should mention that she was extremely responsive to my calls, emails and texts so I was never left hanging not knowing what to do. I highly recommend her and her team!

Heather Veale-Shrewsbury, MA

We couldn't be happier with our experience working with Kay Reed on the purchase of our new home. From the minute we met with her we felt that she understood what we wanted and felt confident that she would do her best to help us get there. During the time that we were looking at new homes, it  happened to be an extremely competitive market with new listings going quickly and many times over asking price. She constantly reassured us when things didn't work out and helped us through some somewhat stressful times. By way of being the kind and warm person that she is, she happened to have had a conversation with someone that ultimately led to us finding the perfect home. In a longer than usual process, Kay was the voice of reason throughout. She worked tirelessly to ensure that things went smoothly. Now that we have been in our new house for just over a week we literally love it even more and we are so thankful to Kay for getting us here. Kay is a professional through and through and we highly recommend her for your real estate needs. She is patient, understanding and kind and extremely knowledgeable.

Tony and Kerrie Topi-Shrewsbury, MA

We are experienced home buyers/sellers and have high expectations of the realtors we choose to work with. Becky met every expectation. She's knowledgeable, smart, experienced, professional, and has a great sense of humor.  She helped us select just the right paint colors, priced the house right,   and sold it in one day!  I highly recommend Becky.

Jay and Amy Coskie-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay was great to work with. She is very knowledgeable and help us all the through buying our house. She was very patient and listened to our needs and was always there for help. She is extremely resourceful and helped us with the move. And we are still good friends.

Goutam and Sharbari Ghoshal-S. Grafton, MA

Becky has a high degree of knowledge and skill and is ever the professional to guide you in the correct way through the selling process. We interviewed a number of realtors and were never sorry that we chose Becky to represent us. Clear, concise, spot on, enough said!

Dave and Judy Cerrone-Shrewsbury, MA

Our experience with Kay Reed was second to none. We happened to accidentally meet her when we dropped in on an open house at an >55 community. Despite not being over 55, Kay took time to chat with us about our hunt for our first home. After putting the search on hold for a year, we  reconnected, she recommended our mortgage broker and closing attorney, and helped guide us through the process of buying a new construction condo with a stellar team representing us. Kay asked the right questions, was a zealous advocate for us, and kept impressive communication with us through the 7 month process of the new build. We would HIGHLY recommend Kay to anyone in the market for a helpful, knowledgeable and all-around enjoyable person to work with. 

Adriana and Patrick MacDonald-Marlborough, MA

Over the last 6 months, I have sold 2 homes, and bought a third.  Each transaction required a different agent. I really liked all my agents, but Becky is by and far the best agent I worked with. 

I used Becky to sell my property in Shrewsbury early this spring. Her communication and approach is   thorough and precise.  She is thoughtful and meticulous in her approach.  She performed the market analysis, worked with me as we established a price and expertly marketed the house leading to offers before we could even host an open house.

There are three things that set Becky apart from her competition:

1) She goes the extra mile.  She has lists of folks she recommends for doing work, providing closing services, etc.  Becky set the bar high here, and I was shocked when I asked other agents similar questions and they said, "let me ask around and I will get back to you"

2) Becky's communication.  I never wondered when I would hear next from Becky.  She set clear expectations and followed up when she said she would, even if it was just to let me know we were still waiting. When things come up she does not shoot you a vague text or email, she picks up the phone, calls you and explains everything and your options.

3) Her team.  Becky has several folks who work with her, and they are just as amazing as she is.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Becky and the service she provides.

Jarod Cronin-Shrewsbury, MA

Our experience with Kay was top notch from the very beginning. We knew from the initial visit that Kay was going to be the one to find us our new home. Kay was very accommodating with her schedule east to get a hold of, even with the number of clients she was working with, we felt we were he only  ones. We went to many showings to figure out what we liked and disliked and not once did she not accommodate the day and times we requested. Once we landed on the right home for us from the offer to closing Kay stood by our side, answered all the questions we had and fought for us to make sure got everything that was negotiated. Kay also referred us to her colleagues which made the process so much smoother which was appreciated during this stressful time. I highly recommend Kay to anyone looking for a buyers agent. We not only have become great business contacts but an extension of our family and now a good friend. 

Amanda and David Mitchell-S. Grafton, MA

Becky helped us buy a home in the greater Worcester area, and we also decided to have her sell our home in Framingham, Ma. She was very professional and VERY knowledgeable about the process. She also knew everyone, and did an excellent job negotiating in a multiple big situation. She was responsive  24/7 with issues that arose in our tenuous sale/purchase. We now have our dream home! Couldn't be happier.

Suzanne Sprague and Michael DeSimone-Framingham, MA

We highly recommend Kay Reed! We were first time home buyers and we had a lot of questions and required a lot of guidance through the whole process. Kay was there for us every step of the way, from our initial meeting until the official closing! She was very supportive and made sure we understood  what to expect. Kay is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and we felt she had our best interest in mind the whole time. We also really enjoyed talking with her, getting to know her, and as the process moved along, we ended up building a great friendship! We cannot say enough about how hard she works and how skilled she is at her job, or how kind and friendly she is. We are very glad we got the chance to work with her!

Eric and Emily Hubbard-Shrewsbury, MA

We have recently sold our house in Shrewsbury with Becky and it was a pleasant experience. She did not pressure us into anything we did not want to do. It all started the day she analyzed the neighborhood and helped us with pricing of our house. Then through the open house, other repairs she was very helpful in providing information on various contractors that we needed. My wife and I were absolutely delighted at how she maintained her composure during the many changes and extended time between the sale and closing. We could not have worked with a better team (Becky and Kay). Kay is helping us in our new house and she is a delight to work with as well. She is there to help you though any discussions no matter the time or day. She is outstanding. I have already told few friends about their team and would recommend anybody who is looking to either sell a house or buy a house to work with Becky and Kay. I am sure you will be as delighted as we were.

Rama and Sangeeta Nippani-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay was amazing to work with. She helped me find a home that I love in an aggressive market. Kay is responsive, honest and determined to help buyers secure the home they want to purchase. I recommend her highly.

Carol Pickering-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky was the consummate professional during the selling process of my home, which I had owned for 38 years. She was always accessible and every issue that occurred was solved readily using her extensive knowledge of municipal contacts and local expertise. My home was sold within a week and the challenge for me was finding new homes for my treasured but oversized pieces of furniture. Once again Becky was instrumental with her network of professionals. Every step of the way to closing was handled by Becky and her staff with the utmost efficiency and in a timely manner. I am absolutely delighted to recommend Becky to any perspective home seller. Simply the best!

Nancy O'Connor-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay was the seller's agent for the couple who bought my house. I decided after working with her on the sale side that I would hire her to represent me on the purchase of a new home. She was fantastic from start to finish! Kay is personable, honest, professional and knowledgeable...I enjoyed  working with her and felt as if the process was in good hands. And my kids took to her quickly - which says a lot to me about the kind of person she is. I would definitely hire Kay again if and when I need real-estate counsel.

Deborah Chartrand-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky was invaluable to our family as we tried to sell my mother's home. She was very adept at keeping all of us informed and giving excellent timely advice as to how to negotiate the offers. We would not hesitate to recommend Becky for any sale in Metro West or Central Mass. My mother's home was not too close to Becky's office, but she was familiar with the area nevertheless and did excellent research. We are all happy with the outcome knowing my mom can be taken care of in her golden years.

Lauren Goddard and Tom Mahan-Framingham, MA

Kay is a pro! She helped us navigate the process from beginning to end expertly. We ended up purchasing a house that was for sale by owner and the homeowner was so impressed by his interactions with Kay as our buyer's agent that he hired her to help him purchase his new home!

Amy and Jay Coskie-Shrewsbury, MA

As a local real estate attorney, I know and work with many capable and professional realtors. When it came time to sell our home, my wife and I carefully considered our choices. Becky and her team were second to none in terms of their knowledge of the market, negotiation skills, availability, and connections. We were quite impressed with their ability to negotiate the price we wanted under the terms we expected which resulted in a fast and uncomplicated closing. Our only regret was that we did not heed Becky's initial advice about setting the price of our home. The price we closed on was the figure on which Becky originally priced the home - we thought we knew better! Many thanks to Becky, Kay and Alison. We can't recommend Becky Dalke and her team highly enough. You won't regret working with them.

Jennifer and Michael Robbins-Grafton, MA

Working with Kay was such a pleasurable experience. Her knowledge of the process made it very easy for my husband and I to purchase our new home after being in our last home for 21 years. She took the lead on everything and went above and beyond to obtain information about the new property when  asked. We had all the background we needed and felt fully informed and confident before making our purchase. She was professional and organized, and provided reassurance when needed. Buying a home is not something you do every day, so when you do, you obviously want to be working with someone that is the best in their field. Kay Reed is that person.

Michelle and Brian Hoey-Wayland, MA

We have no "seller's remorse" at all with our decision to work with Becky and her team on the sale of our house. We were looking to downsize while staying in the general area - Becky understood how this situation would affect our priorities and timelines, and brought everything together for us. She was working with buyers who turned out to be an excellent fit for our house. The process went very smoothly - and the little bumps that did come up got straightened out! - such that we are pleased with the sale from beginning to end.

Charles and Amanda Preston-Shrewsbury, MA

We couldn't have asked for a better person to help our family buy our first home! We were moving to town from out of state for my husbands job . The move was so unexpected and stressful (to say the least) and to top it off, we had never bought a house before!! I am pretty sure between myself  and my husband, we asked Kay every question in the book - twice!! Kay was so patient and helpful through the whole process. She gave us plenty of reading material and really took us step-by-step, making sure we were completely comfortable with everything. She made it incredibly easy for us- which is something I never thought I would say about buying a home!! She already had recommendations for us to choose from - when we needed a mortgage lender or a great restaurant for dinner!! I highly recommend Kay to anyone who is looking to buy a home! She was incredibly professional, kind, and patient. She jumped through hoops for us and drove across towns and back just to make sure we were completely satisfied with our choice. We couldn't have asked for a better team on our side! She truly was a delight to work with and we will be calling on her in the future when we outgrow this home!! Thanks again Kay!!!

Meghan and Ken McClune-Paxton, MA

Becky was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has the local knowledge, Real Estate business knowledge and friendly professionalism you will need and benefit from during a home sale or purchase. We appreciate her guidance and will highly recommend her to anyone in the area looking for a great real estate agent who cares immensely about her clients. Thank you so much Becky for all your hard work!

Rodrigo and Maria Bumanglag-Shrewsbury, MA

I worked with Kay from the moment I was only considering about the house to buy until the moment I became an owner. Kay was very helpful on each stages, not persuasively pushing but explaining and advising. There were so many questions I did not know whom to ask, so I always asked Kay and, what's  important in such cases, without any delay got my answers. She also took good piece of burden with phone calls and communications between attorney and lender offices. The buying process took a lot of my time, but without Kay I guess I would have to give up working :)

Roman and Oksana Asanov

I have known Becky personally for many years and I knew when it was time to sell our home to relocate to NC she was the person for the job. She is a perfectionist in everything she does. She said she would sell our home at the open house and she was right. We sold our home with 4 offers on the first day it was on the market. Not only did we sell it but we got above our asking price. She helped us prepare for the sale and has excellent sales and negotiation skills. My husband has been ill and I needed to make sure everything went smoothly. She was empathetic to our situation and everything went as planned. Alison her assistant is excellent as well. If you are looking for someone to sell your home we would highly recommend Becky and her team.

Maryanne and Charlie Leykum-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I just bought our first home with Kay's help. She was honest and was able to answer all of our many questions! Her positivity and energy helped ease us through this process! She is great!

C Graham-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky helped us in both buying our house and later selling our house (we had to sell our house due to job relocation). We were extremely happy with the service Becky provided. I will comment on the recent house selling experience with Becky. We needed to sell the house quickly because the job change. Initially, we were worried as there were several houses in the same street sitting in the market for long time. Becky did an excellent job in researching the market and gave us a very reasonable price suggestion. We received several offers in the first day and sold the house very quickly with a price exceeding our initial expectation. Becky is on top of everything, and is very efficient in replying to our questions and concerns. I will recommend (and already have recommended) Becky to my friends.

Hongfei Wang and Lifeng Lai-Holden, MA

Kay is a very kind and dedicated person.She keeps the communication channel open, she always responded to us in timely manner Even though we did not end up buying a home from her because we had to make some changes in our plans.But we will definitely ask for her next time we are looking for a  home. She gave a lot of love to our girls,I am sure they will miss seeing her.Thank You for your help all the way along.

Alka and Pratyush Garge-Westborough, MA

I chose Becky based on a personal recommendation and couldn't be happier with my choice. Looking to purchase my first home was a daunting task. Becky was incredibly knowledgeable and HONEST throughout the entire process. I was looking for a house slightly outside of Becky's area, so she set me up  with a trusted colleague to aid in our search and acted as a co-realtor. At first I was skeptical, but WHAT A TEAM they were! Becky was available, communicative and a true pleasure to work with. I was incredibly impressed when Becky advised me against purchasing a home that was clearly overpriced. She had MY best interest in mind. She assured me that we would find a more suitable house that we would love... and she was absolutely right! We now have a truly amazing home in a neighborhood that I could have only dreamed to live in. Becky is the absolute top of the line in realty. I plan to recommend her and her team to everyone I know!

Robyn Wing and Loren Estabrook-Wrentham, MA

As we settle into our new home, we wanted to take a moment to express our thank you to Kay in helping us find our home. We were first time home buyers with very little knowledge of how to find the right place. Kay was very patient with us explaining each step along the way making such a stressful experience of buying a house very smooth. Kay always made herself available to go look at houses and was always very prompt and responsive to all our questions. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the market. We can’t thank Kay enough for her professionalism, expertise and hard work in helping us find our home. We will definitely recommend Kay to anyone in the market looking for a home.

Aparna and Vaibhav Sankaye-Northborough, MA

We have worked with Becky on both home sales and purchases, and have always been pleased with the outcomes. She knows her stuff and is very committed to keeping her finger on the pulse of the local market. She is reliable, available, communicative, and professional, and brings this with her to the negotiating table. Do yourself a favor and call Becky!

Todd and Jo-Ellen Brodeur-Shrewsbury, MA

I met Kay at an open house. I was five minutes past the end time and she still happily invited me in to view the property and later happily moved me through the buying process with another house. I really enjoyed working with Kay - she is knowledgeable and professional but also very warm - and I am  very grateful to her for making an often stressful experience a very pleasant one instead. Kay loves what she does and it is not only evident in her interactions with you, the buyer, but also with the many other professionals you connect with along the way. She provided needed information and offered many referrals all which proved to be very helpful for me. Everyone was responsive and clearly enjoyed working with Kay, and it all made the process that much easier. 

Leah Tucker-N. Grafton, MA

My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Becky on several transactions. In every case her and her team were absolute professionals. They understand the market better than anyone, they know how to maximize the value out of any transaction (buy or sell), they care deeply about their clients, and she always, and I do mean always does the right thing by you. Honest as the day is long and exceptionally smart she is also a very good negotiator and thinks outside the box to insure you get the best resolution. If you our even thinking about a real estate transaction near the Shrewsbury area she should be your agent.

Vincent Virga-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky was amazing to work with. We sold our house the same day as the open house and she was able to get us more than we asked for. She was constantly working the phones that day getting us the best offer she could. This could not have been an easier process for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

John and Melissa Oglebay-Worcester, MA

My fiance and I were first time home buyers, and working with Kay was an aboslute dream. She was kind, knowledgeable and very responsive. She worked hard to negotiate for us and definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. She was never overbearing or pushy, just there when we needed her.  We had no idea how stressful buying a house could be, and I can't imagine doing it without Kay. Now that we actually have our first home, we miss talking to her every day! 

Anna and Greg Grotevant-Sutton, MA

Becky Dalke has perfected the art of selling a home to a science. Recently when we were confronted with the arduous and emotional task of selling a home that had been in the family for a long time, we were so fortunate to have Becky streamline the process for us. Becky's suggestions may require some work, but if you follow her lead, you will not only sell your home, but possibly have multiple offers at the open house as we did. Becky and her team are friendly, respectful, and positive professionals who keep you informed throughout the process of selling your home. We were delighted that we chose Becky as our agent!

Joyce Perrault-Shrewsbury, MA

We have less knowledge about this town. However, Kay made every step so smooth. She is very patient to baby, She is always there to answer our questions no matter how small they are, she has a great contact lists of house related issue, even for house remodel, paint, carpet, pest control and more, she is always on time and update all process to you, she is very honest and give us so many suggestions instead of pushing to make offer. I am a picky person, but I cant imagine to buy the house without Kay! She becomes our family's friends! 

Ziyin Liu-Shrewsbury, MA

Look no further! Becky and her team are top notch realtors who work with buyers and sellers. The words 'cannot' don't exist in their vocabulary. As a sellers agent, Becky's houses always appraise. She is well versed with the Central MA market (i.e., Shrewsbury, Westborough, Northborough, Grafton). Her buyer’s agent, Kay, has superior negotiation skills to get you the best price. This is THE #1 team who is knowledgeable, professional, and extremely responsive. Becky and her team don't work harder, they work SMARTER!

Mark and Heather Vaillancourt-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, very friendly and really understood what we were looking for and guided us throughout the process. As a first time home buyer, we had a lot of questions, I mean a lot and she went above and beyond in answering all our questions no matter how small they were.  Quick response time for all our emails and calls(even during the weekends and early mornings / late nights) and scheduling to see houses was a breeze. She constantly keeps in touch with sellers agents and lets us know which trivial information we should be looking for. She very often touch based with us so we were aware of all the new potential listings. She explains the whole process and the things to look for very well. This made us more aware of the market value with our expectations. She has great contacts list for lenders, home inspectors, lawyers etc., every one of them that we used exceed our expectations. We are very glad that she was our agent.

Vichitra and Sridhar Subramanian-Southborough, MA

Becky's market knowledge, professionalism and social web marketing strategy made it an easy decision on who to choose to work with when listing my condo in Shrewsbury. I needed to sell quickly and she helped me get that done even though it was already fall when I listed. She goes above and beyond  to help and is the kind of person that is just a delight to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her - A+ Agent and support staff.

Lisa Foley-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay Reed is a wonderful person to work with.She is reliable,honest,sincere and the most dedicated person I have ever worked with.Most importantly she is very patient with kids,that really helped us through the entire process of home buying. We highly recommend Kay Reed.

Prajakti Karkhanis-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky came highly recommended from a few of our neighbors who had a successful experience with selling their home during 2015. Becky and her team are very easy to work with and very professional. As a sellers agent, she really listened to us and gave her honest opinion. She is very responsive  and informative. Most importantly, Becky really knows the town and it's buyers and she will always give you honest feedback. She is a Realtor that does her homework. I highly recommend Becky and her team of experts, we can't say enough good things about them. They are unmatched as far as Realtors go in this area. Thank you again, we really appreciate your work in getting our house sold fast!

Mark and Meghan Wood-Shrewsbury, MA

My husband and I were thrilled with our experience with Kay as our real estate agent! She is extremely competent, kind, and responsive. We were first-time home buyers and she guided us through the whole process so that we could feel confident every step of the way. What's more, we had a tricky  situation because we were moving from across the country and were looking for a house while we weren't yet living locally. Kay took the time to really understand what we were looking for, and then she worked around our schedule to make sure we found it, booking whole days with us when we were in town, and even showing houses to my parents (who live locally) between our visits. We felt comfortable calling, emailing, or texting her with even very small questions, and Kay was always gracious, informative, and prompt with her responses. We ended up purchasing a house that we absolutely love, and we both feel really grateful to Kay for making the process so smooth and easy for us. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone hoping to purchase a home in the area. 

Hilary and Liam Clegg-Westborough, MA

Kay came highly recommended to us by a family friend. As first time home buyers she really made our journey amazing! When we first contacted her, she sat down with us and went through the entire home buying process in great detail. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we were  looking for and worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect home. Throughout the process she was very professional, personable, flexible, and accommodating. She was there with us every step of the way. We are so glad Kay was our agent and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home!

Mikaela and Matt Powell-Auburn, MA
Becky did an excellent job in helping us find a great home. Her timely responses (even while she was traveling!), suggestions when we faced obstacles and ability to calm us when we experienced disappointments are some of the many things we appreciate about her. We highly recommend her services  whether you are looking to buy or sell a home.
Suresh and Achu Mathew-Shrewsbury, MA

It was very pleasant working with Kay for our first home. Kay was very professional and proactive. She always gave a perspective on houses we went with her weighing on the positives as well as negatives. She would never push us to make a decision one way or the other. We would pester and see the same house more than once and she would gleefully agree to it. We would love to work with her for our second home as well in future!

Pranav Jaipuriar-S. Grafton, MA

Becky and her team are the best around! Becky sold our home in Shrewsbury in a matter of days. Despite being on vacation, she continued to work with us as offers came in. We were able to sell our home for several thousand dollars above the list price. She then helped us to purchase our new home  and negotiated a very fair price. The entire process was smooth.

What sets Becky and her team apart is the genuine interest they have in listening to their clients, the very hard work that they put in throughout the process, and their dedication to getting the job done. Becky always made herself available when questions or concerns came up. She explained everything in fine detail and offered sound advice. From start to finish, we truly enjoyed working with her. We are certain that Becky is the best realtor around. Whether buying or selling, she is the only one to call.

William Vigeant-Shrewsbury, MA

My wife and I met Key (as part of Becky Dalke & Associates) from reading reviews such as this one. There was an immediate "connection" between Kay and all of my family. Our wish list was long and certainly thought-provoking. Kay took this challenge head-on and immediately went to work. She was  constantly probing the marketplace and sending potential properties for us to review. Kay spent weekends traveling to open houses with us, listened to our needs and was a great sounding board for our questions and concerns. And now, thanks to her persistence we're in the home of our dreams hitting over 90% of our wish list. Kay's great personality and solid ethics made this process enjoyable. This is her passion.... and it shows! Highly recommended.

Fred Guerrera
Becky sold our house in 4 days! She knows the local market inside and out. Becky went above and beyond to market our home strategically and to make the process as easy as possible for us. She was so responsive and professional, we highly recommend her.
Patrick and Kelly Cleary-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky was listing agent on my home in Shrewsbury. From the time of our first meeting until closing she never missed a beat. Within 12 hours of our open house we had a deposit and an offer well over asking. She also acted as dual agent with the new home we purchased and was always available to help  in any was possible. Professional, very knowledgeable and certainly the best of the best in Real estate. Highly recommended.

Shane and Melissa Stineford-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky helped us sell our home in July. She impressed us immediately with her professionalism and her attention to detail. She gave us excellent advice on pricing and marketing our home, tailored specifically to our situation. She had excellent suggestions for staging our home also. Because of  this, our home sold very quickly. The sale was contingent on the buyer selling their home, and Becky and her associate handled all of these transactions (as well as the purchase of our new home). She and her team worked tirelessly behind the scenes managing the details (and the inevitable glitches that occurred) of the 5 purchases/sales to ensure that all the closings took place at the correct time. This included working closely with the town to deal with the buyer's basement which had been finished by the previous owner without a permit. She was able to negotiate with the town to obtain the permits so that the closings could occur as scheduled. All in all, Becky's extensive experience was evident every step of the way. That and her calm demeanor and ability to really listen to what we needed made us very glad we had chosen her team to work with.

Jen and Wayne Trotter

Becky Dalke helped us sell our home in Shrewsbury, MA in early spring of 2015. She is a thorough professional, very organized and has an in-depth knowledge of the real estate market and its current trends. Our home was listed at the right price and within 24 hours of the Open House, we had multiple  offers. She helped us out with staging the home for the Open House as well. And she did an amazing job with promoting the Open House via all her channels. She is very resourceful too, she has a good network of electricians, plumbers, general contractors as well. She also helped us with buying a home in Southborough, MA. She had us write down a list of features we were looking for in the new home, took us to see the homes which matched most of our criteria and helped us make knowledgeable decisions with writing up the offer and negotiating the price. Becky was always cheerful and patient while interacting with us and she knows her stuff. She has kept in touch with us even after the home buying/selling was done, that to me is what makes a successful realtor stand out from the others. I will highly recommend her for your home buying/selling process.

Giridhar Dandu & Neetha Vuppala-Shrewsbury, MA

We met Kay at an open house and were immediately impressed by her outgoing, friendly and easy going personality. We never felt any pressure from her and she almost immediately felt like a friend! She found us a home that met 95% of the items on our "wish list" and we could not be happier. She was  there for us every step of the way of the home buying process and respondedin a very timely manner each time we had a question or concern. We would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone! She is truly a gem! 

Rob and Jeanine Mackson

Kay did a great job helping us to find a new home. We found a home we loved and we are grateful for her help. She is very professional and hard working and has a great knowledge of the market. She is very personable and works well with both buyers and sellers. Everything went very smoothly  with her help. I would highly recommend her!

Bethany and Jan Pyro-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay was our buyer realtor and she did an excellent job. As a first-time owner, we were really unsure about the homebuying process but she was a great guide and help as we transitioned into a new phase in our lives. She was very fast with her email responses and always patient when we had (dumb!)  questions for her. Even when we faced obstacles during the purchase, she helped us connect with other individuals (e.g. lender) who ended up being great resources to us. A TIP to all those considering to buy/sell a home - your realtor can either ruin or help you enjoy this experience. So be wise and choose someone like Kay who is always attentive to your questions/concerns. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Suresh Mathew-Shrewsbury, MA

Kay helped us purchase a condo in July. We were downsizing from a larger home and the timing of purchasing and selling was tricky as we had a contingent buyer. She was very responsive, getting back to us immediately when we had questions and quickly scheduling showings when we were ready to  purchase. The seller wasn't using an agent, so she cheerfully assisted him as well so that the sale would go smoothly. Kay listened carefully to our concerns and wishes, and because of her help, we were able to move directly from our home into a lovely condo in Grafton without needing to put our possessions in storage. 

Jen and Wayne Trotter-Boylston, MA

This letter will add to the growing number of recommendation letters that compose Becky’s resume of home sale success and will tell a bit of my personal story of my sale.  I am writing this letter a few hours after the closing process and the deposit of my check which generates a very good feeling .   

I decided to sell my home of 18 years once I no longer worked in the area.  I had seen many "Becky Dalke” For Sale signs in my neighborhood and noticed that the homes were not on the market for very long…..an important fact for any seller.  I decided to interview Becky and two other well-known brokers in the area.  Becky was the first interview and she became the last interview as I decided that she had superior knowledge of the market in my area and had the tenacity to make the sale happen.  She convinced me of this with her solid presentation of materials which showed me her sales approach and a solid sales plan for every week that the house could be on the market.  She has really good connections and a vast network of contacts that are used to sell your home.

Once I signed on with Becky the process to sell my home started immediately with no delay.  Wow, I was off and moving fast. I liked this very much.  She gave me a comprehensive analysis of her recommendation of a realistic selling price for my home and it was right in the area that I had in mind (which I had not divulged to her).  She then toured my house and schooled me as to what I needed to do to make the house attractive to potential buyers based on her knowledge of "what sells”.  I was going to fully paint many rooms, but Becky said that most of the walls in these rooms were in great condition and told me to only paint the walls that needed some work.  But I thought the paint will not match? Becky took out her magic paint samples and matched the paint perfectly.  I was amazed and to be honest was happy that I did not have to paint as extensively as I originally thought.  To complete the presentation process she had me paint the front door a different color to give it "pop” and made me add a new small carpet, some elbow grease at minimal expenses.   Six days later the house was posted on the MLS at 4:10pm.  At 5:45pm I had my first walk-through and had a full offer in hand.  The house sold in less than 3 hours which I am sure is a record. Of course the house was in a good area, had a good school and a good location but it presented so well that even after the sale many potential buyers were very disappointed that they did not get to make an offer.   Before I accepted the offer Becky made sure that the buyers were fully vetted financially with her banking contacts to let me know that the buyers were able to buy the house and have a high probability that the deal would not fall apart.  This was very important to me.

The story does not end here as the sale is not complete until the P&S is signed, the home inspection is completed, the buyers receive their mortgage commitment, the final walk-through is completed and the final close achieved.  These are tense moments as you realize that something could go wrong and you start over again.  I can tell you that Becky and her team-mate Anne were involved in all of these steps and was in constant contact with me to let me know what was going on.  When I needed some assurance and gave her a call, she was right there to give me her thoughts based on her experience.  I can assure you that she is a great asset to have on your side!Now my house is sold and I can now move on to another part of my life.  My business relationship with Becky is completed, but I am very glad that I had her as my broker (and a new friend) and the results speak for themselves.  She did a great job!!  If you do not sign up with her, you are making a big mistake.  I write this from my heart and sincerely thank Becky for her efforts and energy in the work she did to sell my home. 

Bob Vorce-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky and Kay Reed did a great job selling our house and helped us to find a new home. Our house was staged well and sold very quickly. We found a home we loved and we are grateful for their help. They were very professional and hard working and had a great knowledge of the market. Everything  went very smoothly with their help. I would highly recommend them!

Bethany and Jan Pyro-Shrewsbury, MA

My husband and I could not have asked for a better buying experience. Kay was always there to answer questions, check in and see how we were doing and give helpful advice when needed. Buying and selling a new home is challenging enough. Having the help of Kay and her associate Becky Dalke was a  blessing. On a scale of one to ten my husband and I would give them a 15!!!

Dianne and Fran Tarpey

Becky helped us sell our home and buy a new one in February. She had extensive knowledge of the market and helped us price the home we were selling at the perfect point to get multiple offers above our asking price. For the home we were purchasing she advocated for us as a buyers agent through some challenging negotiations related to the home inspection. She responds very quickly, answers every question and keeps the process moving along. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Scott and Laura Spangenberg-Shrewsbury, MA
   
Becky is the consummate professional! She helped us both sell our existing home and purchase a new one in 2014. We found Becky to be very knowledgeable about the Shrewsbury market. She provided expert advice on staging to make our home more attractive to buyers and was on time for every appointment and addressed all questions/issues in a timely manner. We were very pleased to have sold our home after only the first open house!! 

Our search for a new home took well over one year and Becky was very patient and helpful throughout the entire process. She understood our needs and made sure each house we looked at met the majority of our criteria. She guided us skillfully through both the home buying/home selling process and provided us with recommendations for other needed professionals including a lawyer, a home inspection company, a bank, and a home improvement contractor. We were extremely pleased with the services provided by each of Becky's recommendations and her excellent working relationship with these professionals helped to make the process less stressful. She was there to commiserate with us when we lost several bidding wars but continued to assure us that each house we lost out on wasn't meant to be. She was right - we couldn't be happier in our new home!!

I would highly recommend Becky to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Shrewsbury and/or surrounding areas.

Lisa Morway-Shrewsbury, MA

     
We chose Becky Dalke Realty to sell our home from reading reviews such as this one. Our choice was a good one! Becky and her team worked hard and diligently for us and had our best interests in mind.
 Becky truly understands the market and trends, which was critical for positioning our home for a quick sale. She was easily accessible and a wealth of knowledge when it came to staging our home and was successful in attracting the right potential buyers to our open house. We found this otherwise stressful process a little less taxing knowing Becky and her team were working for us in the background.  She was also a pleasure to work with and highly recommended.

Fred & Lisa Guerrera-Shrewsbury MA

In September of 2015, we decided to sell our house. We googled realtors in Shrewsbury and the name, Becky Dalke, Keller/Williams, came up.

We called Becky and she set up an appointment within a few days. We knew after our first meeting that she was the realtor we would use to sell our home.

We lived in our house for 27 years so it was not an easy decision but Becky and her crew made up of Kay & Alison, made this experience the easiest and most pleasant we could have ever had.

Our house went on the marked on September 30th, sold on October 4th at the open house, (We never had to show our house), and closed on November 30th. Though it was bitter/sweet, the entire experience went off without a hitch due their excellent organization. 

We recommend this team of experts for both selling or purchasing a home. They are with you every step of the process. They are the best.

Thanks to all of them.

Dennis & Judi Goodwin-Shrewsbury, MA
    
Steve and I wanted to send you a note and express our sincerest thank you for all of your help the past several months. 

Becky: Regarding the sale of our home, from the beginning to the end you were very thorough and detailed in providing us with all of the necessary information that we needed to prepare our home for sale.  You are a professional and very knowledgeable about Shrewsbury and the surrounding area.  You always knew the right contacts for us to connect with to get our answers.  The sale of our home was a great success and we appreciated all of your assistance during what could have been a difficult process which you made very easy.

Kay: Regarding the purchase of our home, from the beginning you made a great personal connection with Steve, myself and the boys.  You were always very gracious and a great listener in understanding what our needs were so you could meet them while looking for a home.  Your responsiveness to our needs was always very timely and with great follow up.  You have great attention to details which made the purchase of our home a great success.  We absolutely love our home and the neighborhood.

Becky and Kay, thank you both again very much for all of your hard work and assistance.  It was a great pleasure having you represent us in the sale as well as purchase of our home.
Wishing you both continued success as you very much deserve it

Steve & Micheline Forget-Shrewsbury, MA

It is our pleasure to recommend the services of Kay Reed & Becky Dalke to any home buyer in the Greater Boston area. They assisted us in the recent purchase of our home in Shrewsbury, MA and we greatly appreciated their attention to detail and knowledge about the surrounding areas & towns.

 

Because we were a longtime apartment renters, Kay's & Becky's knowledge about the area’s properties, pricing, taxing, etc. was simply invaluable to us as a new home buyer. They gave us a lot of relevant information about the property and helped us to buy a beautiful home in a very nice and quiet neighborhood, with convenient access to the highway, shopping and other amenities. Kay even recommended few good home inspectors and attorneys (both of whom provided very good service to us) during our home buying process.

 

Thanks to Kay and Becky, our home-buying experience was quick and smooth. We are extremely satisfied and excited with our purchase and will definitely contact them for any future real estate needs.

 

Thanks once again!

Becky,                                                          

 

Tracy and I wanted to thank you for helping us sale our house at, 4 Thistle Hill Drive, in Shrewsbury, MA.

 

I truly appreciate your specific coaching to help us mentally prepare and focus on the updates we needed to make to our home ready for buyers AND the type of perspective we needed to ready the house for it's highest potential for the initial (and only) open house.

 

The single focused marketing strategy you did produced overwhelming results!  I would have never guessed we would have 16 offers from our initial showing with 14 of them being over our asking price AND a sale shortly after.  Outstanding!

 

Thank you.

Barry & Tracy Phelps-Shrewsbury, MA
Long before we put out house on the market, we had observed how  effectively Becky Dalke facilitated sales of properties in our area. In  our case she recommended improvements in our home to enhance its
marketability, referred us to local, well qualified craftsmen to do the  work, and priced our home at a level that produced a sale at a fair price  in a matter of days!

Becky is the most knowledgeable realtor in our area. She has a high degree of energy, integrity and honesty that makes both sellers and buyers very  comfortable with the overall process. She also ensured that we knew every detail or task necessary to create a successful closing on time.

We would strongly recommend her to any buyer or seller interested in
residential real estate in our area.
Dan & Jane Prior-Shrewsbury, MA

We recently sold our house in Shrewsbury with Becky Dalke and could not have asked for a better experience.  Our house went on the market on a Wednesday afternoon and we had 2 really strong offers by Thursday.  But even if things had not happened that quickly, I would still highly recommend Becky.  She started working with us well in advance of putting our house on the market to ensure we picked just the right time to list and had the house in perfect shape for viewings. 

Becky is incredibly professional and puts every effort into establishing a fair price on the home as well as satisfying the desires of the sellers.  Becky’s network of electricians, contractors, attorneys, etc. are  equally as professional and great to work with as she is, so there is no need to spend lots of time having people at the house getting quotes, etc.

I am currently living in a condo, which Becky helped me purchase, and when it comes time to sell again

Becky will be the agent I call.

 

Sara Tiernan-Shrewsbury, MA

Driving around our neighborhood we would often see Becky's signs on houses that were for sale.So, when we decided to sell our home we decided to call Becky. Right from our first meeting we knew why she was so popular. She went through our home and made some great suggestions on what to do before we put it on the market. She was even able to recommend a painter, electrician and a handyman who were able to come right away and do the work. Where her years of experience as a broker really showed was with how she interacted with potential buyers. She was ready with great answers to any negative comment or objection that was brought up. When two offers came in she knew how to handle each buyer to get us the best price. We were very happy with how Becky handled the sale of our home and would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

 

Hal & Mary Sternburg-Shrewsbury, MA

When it came to selling our house in Shrewsbury, we called Becky Dalke because of her stellar reputation. We were not disappointed!

Becky is the most knowledgeable realtor in the Shrewsbury area. Her market analysis was spot on and she was with us  for every step of the process. Becky was available whenever we needed help or had questions and she gave us some great advices as well. She is well connected and respected which is always helpful. Our house sold for the right price in a short period of time.

We absolutely recommend  choosing Becky Dalke as a realtor. She is trustworthy and vey pleasant to work with. If we ever come back to the area, she will help us buy our new house for sure!

 

Muriel & Emmanuel Gerard-Shrewsbury, MA
My wife Claudia and I can't thank you enough for your professionalism, expertise, patience and hard work in helping us fulfill the dream of owning our own home in Shrewsbury, MA. We love our home, the neighborhood, the schools, and the community!

As we started to look, the mailings you sent, along with your website were extremely helpful as we were going through our initial decision process. Your years of experience in this market, especially in the Shrewsbury area, really came into play. Your knowledge of the neighborhoods, home construction, and attention to our other needs (inspectors, insurance providers, and mortgage companies), was so valuable and helped guide us in making the right decisions.

Please feel free to use this letter of recommendation for future customers, and don't hesitate to have people contact me for your review.

Oscar Ornelas-Shrewsbury, MA

If you have not found a Realtor yet, and are looking for a highly dedicated and ethical professional I would recommend Becky Dalke.  My family and I purchased a home during the summer of 2009 and Becky represented us as a buyer’s agent.   She provided us with an accurate assessment of each property that we considered as well as offering good insight throughout the process.  Becky had a very good understanding of the local market.  In addition, she recommended a home inspector, real estate attorney, and loan officer, all of which we were very pleased with.  Our particular closing was very complex and difficult because of technical issues concerning the home.  During that time, Becky assisted us at every step of the way.  She was an excellent advocate for our position and worked hard for us to find other alternatives as options.

Lawrence Margagliano, P.E.-Boylston, MA

Dear Becky,

Thank you so much for your guidance and due diligence in helping Amy and I close on our new home in Holden.  We don’t believe we could have found anyone else that could have made this process any easier.

 Here is our story:

Amy and I are getting married in August of this year.  We decided to rent out Amy’s current property and start looking at new homes – subsequently we found a home in Upton MA and moved forward in searching for a Real-estate agent to make an offer.  Unfortunately we had a very poor experience with our first agent and never even moved forward in making in offer.  We decided to take some time and start our search over again.  Fortunately, a few weeks later I overheard Becky speaking with her trainer at the YMCA about showing a house.  I introduced myself and asked if she was a Real-estate agent…. so began our journey together.

 Amy and I found a home that was in foreclosure and knew we would be in for a long ride.  We measured the pros and cons and decided this home was worth it and we would ride it out together.  At the end of the day it was worth it and we were able to buy our dream home just in time to move and settle prior to our wedding day.  Dealing with a bank owned property was a headache from the start.  Fortunately for us we had a very experienced, dedicated and persistent agent!  Amy and I couldn’t be happier with Becky’s performance as she exceeded all of our expectations.  If you’re in search of someone that can guide you through home purchase all the while making you feel comfortable and confident don’t hesitate in calling Becky, I promise you will be very happy.  I’m very happy that we had someone that was competitive and was willing to fight for what we wanted.  At Becky’s recommendation we also worked with Terry Drumm & Steve Liedel from Wells Fargo (mortgage), Ken Northrup from Winsor – Northrup (Real Estate Attorney) & Steve Ducharme (Home Inspector).  I was a bit hesitant to work with all three parties recommended by an Agent as a friend of mine recommended not to.  However, at the end of the day they all have experience working with one another and we felt like we had a cohesive team working for us.

 Thank you, Becky!!!

Geordie & Amy Sanborn -Holden, MA
I have known Becky Dalke for over 10 years as a friend and neighbor.  It wasn’t until I hired her to work with my husband and I to find our dream farm and sell our existing home that I really learned what kind of person she really is.  I have three horses that I had boarded and finally decided that it was time to bring them home.  We weren’t getting any younger so now was the time to become "farmers” if we were going to do it.  Becky knew nothing about what makes a good horse property but she was willing to learn whatever she needed to so that she could find us the right kind of properties to look at.
We looked at many properties and met some interesting people and places along the way.  Becky did a wonderful job on negotiating on our behalf and trying to get the deals finalized.   After two unsuccessful offers and one very difficult realtor, we finally owned 13.5 acres in Sutton, MA.  We were on our way to building our dream farm. 
The next step in the journey was the sale of the Shrewsbury house.  Becky offered advice on how to stage the house and worked with us on the pricing of the house.  At first we didn’t like the pricing she proposed.  Everyone always thinks their house is worth more that it is.  However, she was willing to work with us on some market testing with respect to pricing and see what the market tells us.  The market was difficult but Becky kept diligently working on finding us the right potential buyers; did some price adjusting and then negotiating with a couple of not so "right” buyers. Unfortunately, the market is what it is and it can bring the worst out in people but Becky managed to keep us sane in the process.
Finally in July of 2011, we got an offer (about what Becky said we would sell the house for) from a lovely family who found our home to be their next "dream” home.  It was such a wonderful feeling to sell the home we raised our family in to a family that loved everything about the house.  I truly don’t think this experience could have turned out the way it did without having Becky as our realtor.  It is extremely stressful to buy or sell a home in this market.  It takes somebody who really cares about you as a person; who is willing to put in the extra time to learn about your needs; and who is both creative and intelligent to help you on your journey.  That person is Becky Dalke.

Good luck to you buyers and sellers on finding your next dream home. May it be swift and prosperous!

Tammy & Jeff Blakeslee-Sutton, MA
My wife Sindhu and I had the pleasure of working with Becky in purchasing our first home in Shrewsbury. Like most home buyers we had very specific criteria so we wanted the right person for the job.  Right from the moment we interviewed Becky, we had no doubt in our minds that we wanted her to be our buyer agent. She clearly stood out from the rest.

Becky drove us around different neighborhoods to understand what type of houses appealed to us. She had clear understanding of what we were looking for. With very few houses coming on the market, it was a little frustrating. Buying a house seemed like an eternity. Becky advised us to be patient and assured us that when the right house comes we will pounce on it. She proved it right when the house we ended up buying came on the market. Becky got the first appointment to see the house. She wasted no time in getting the deal closed.

Becky was very professional, sincere, and thoughtful, from the first day to the last day of closing. It is obvious that Becky has a passion for what she does and it was such a comfort to know that she was on our side. We knew with Becky's expertise that we were making the right decision every step of the way. Becky just didn't stop with her buyer agent duties but went the extra mile. She has a great network. When we needed referrals for home inspection, carpeting, hardwood floor, you name it and she helped us in any way she could. I would strongly recommend anyone to use her service. With Beck as your agent - sit back and relax and actually enjoy the buying process!!

A day doesn't go by in our new home when we don't think of how much you have helped us.  We adore our new home and would not be here without your help.  You made it possible to sell our old home and purchase the home of our dreams in just four months.  The transition was seamless thanks to your diligence and thorough understanding of the real estate market.  You were always available to answer our questions and proactive with regard to any problems.  We are very fortunate and grateful to have had the pleasure of working with such a special realtor.

 

Dr. Cliff & Madeline Browning-Shrewsbury, MA

We were moving out of state and asked Becky to help us sell our house. We wouldn't elaborate on why we chose her – her sales volume says it all.

Becky sat down with us with a preliminary market analysis. Everything she presented was professionally prepared. She made clear points and they were easy to understand. Then she came back and gave us very specific and simple-to-follow staging advice. Some advice was obvious and some other pieces were simply genius. We were very impressed with her creativity and resourcefulness and followed her advice to the best we could. Since we have a young baby and it was hard to find time to run errands while trying to get the house ready, Becky volunteered to pick out flowers for our garden. She even showed us where to plant them. The walkway looked vibrant and lively with her magic touch.

Just a couple of days before we were ready to list the house, Becky conducted one more round of detailed market analysis to take into account the houses that were just sold. She also checked how our house was staged and gave more tips. Many of those tips can be used in our future house decoration over and over again.

Our house was finally listed. Becky ALWAYS communicated with us timely and updated us frequently. We know how many houses she was selling and to this day still wonder how she managed to take such good care of us. She collected information at the open house, followed up with potential buyers. She forwarded or called us to give feedback on showings as soon as she had it. She gave extremely important advice when we did have offers. She helped us negotiate. She sat through the house inspection and took notes. She was present for the appraisal. When we were out of town, she stopped by to turn on and off the light for showings. We moved out of town before the house was closed.  She helped us with many things to wrap things up. She even phone interviewed a realtor in the town we were moving to so that we would have another great realtor to work with when buying our new home.

We can go on and on about how she went extra miles to help us. In short, after working with her, Becky is the first and only name I think of when friends ask us to recommend a realtor. We wrote this letter not only to thank Becky but also for those of you who are looking for someone to work with. If you have worked with real estate agents, you know how hard it is to find someone who is highly capable, creative, professional, organized, caring, and trust-worthy. Becky has it all. She will make what could be a difficult situation a breeze. Buying and/or selling a house is no small deal. When we worked with Becky, we knew our house would sell with her help, which gave us immense peace of mind.  We are sincerely grateful to her. Please take our advice and call her!

To Becky Dalke,

We have used Becky Dalke as a buyer's agent. During the processes we appreciated Becky’s experience, communication skills, and professionalism. Everything was handled promptly and handled well.  As a first time home buyer in Massachusetts, my wife and I had lots of questions about the whole process. Becky was very patient in answering all our questions and concerns.  She made us feel really comfortable and no question was a stupid question.   She spent time in understanding our needs and addressing our concerns.   When we finally liked the house we wanted to bid on, Becky provided us with all the details and the data of the sales prices in the area, so we could make an informed decision.  - Highly recommended.

 

Jovanie & Marivel Claver-Northborough, MA

I originally had another real estate agent but after my house was not selling and it was getting closer to the date I was moving, I decided to switch agents. A good friend who lives in Shrewsbury recommended Becky and I called her right away. She was able to meet me that day! The minute I met Becky, I felt at ease. She was very calm, positive and confident. She understood the situation I was in and had a complete plan to sell my house quickly. She took professional, great pictures of the house so it showed well on MLS. She gave me helpful suggestions of how to present the house. She used real and up to date information to set the realistic price on the house. She had a professional binder and video to help me through the whole process. She always got back to me within the day and kept me up to date on all feedback from the prospective buyers.

Two weeks after I signed Becky to be my agent, we had an offer and a deal. It was very quick and the buyer wanted to be in the house in three weeks.  Becky walked me through each step so I was not panicked or stressed. She helped me find a real estate lawyer and made sure that I took all the necessary steps to make this sale go through. She really made the whole move and selling of the house smooth  and stress-free.

 

I would 100% percent recommend Becky to anyone who is looking of an agent to sell (or buy) a house in the Shrewsbury area.  She is very professional and will always give you honest feedback. She will respond to your questions and requirements right away. You almost feel that she is only working on your house! Most importantly, she was a pleasure to work with and made our move that much easier.

Thanks,

Sara McCall-Shrewsbury, MA

When I moved to Shrewsbury I decided I would start with a good attitude, and so I joined the Welcome Wagon, which was an organization to welcome newcomers to the Shrewsbury area by presenting them with opportunities to meet neighbors with similar interests and hobbies.  It was a good decision as it literally opened doors to meet neighbors who later became dear friends.   As I began to join some of the Welcome Wagon’s activities, I became acquainted with Becky, who was then serving as President of the Welcome Wagon.  I admired her for volunteering considerable time and effort to spark interest in the group so that it could fulfill its goals of reaching out to people and bringing them together.  I was able to get to know her better through some of these sponsored occasions, and I found her to be a warm and caring person.

When it came time to sell our house we couldn't think of anyone else better than Becky.  From the start Becky provided us with the support and data to price our home correctly, and the marketing skills to sell our home at the best price.   She was receptive to our questions and concerns and gave us sound advice and guidance.  We had some unique challenges with our home, and Becky’s instincts were right on target regarding the preparation and timing of placing our house up for sale.  The sign went up in our front yard, and within a few days we had three offers on our house.  Becky was then on hand to guide us through the closing process which proceeded forward without a hitch.  The entire experience from beginning to end was very positive and successful.  Thanks Becky!

To Whom it May Concern:

My husband and I recently moved into our condominium at Orchard Hills in Westborough, Massachusetts.

Since we knew Ms. Becky Dalke previously, I called her and told her that we were interested in  relocating to this area.  She advised us of several 55 plus communities and took us to view them.  Soon after, we decided upon Orchard Hills.  From that point on Ms. Dalke was extremely helpful and acted as a go between the builder and ourselves.

There are hardly any words to describe how accommodating, encouraging and professional she was.  She was not a typical broker in that she put no pressure upon us.  She was always there to help us in every way possible.

I would highly recommend her to any person who is looking to buy any type of property.  In addition, she has become a friend to us.

Norma & Joel Osit-Westborough, MA

We had a wonderful experience purchasing a house with Ms. Becky Dalke recently and would like to share it with you.

We bought a three-bedroom house in Shrewsbury 15 years ago.  Since then our family expanded. We now have a teenage son and my in-laws often stay with us. We were considering an upgrade to a larger house in Shrewsbury during the summer of 2013. We met Becky during an open house.  She was the seller’s agent at a beautiful house that happened to be too small for us.  There were many people at the open house and Becky spotted us and asked us what we were looking for in a home.  It turned out that she was a listing agent on a bigger house just down the street in Boylston.   Our son is in a private school and we were okay with living in a town next to Shrewsbury. We visited the house the next day and although we liked it, this home was still not quite right for us.  Becky did not try to force us to buy this house.  She was willing to show us a couple of more houses so that we could compare. She even introduced us to another agent who could act in our behalf as a buyer’s agent if we decided to put in an offer on her listing.

After several visits to various homes, we finally found a beautiful house that we liked very much.   However, we had concerns because the house had been empty for three year and we wondered why it had not been sold.  Becky understood our concerns and completed a market analysis for us, to determine the best value for the house.   She suggested that we make an offer and conduct a thorough home inspection. Through a series of negotiations, she was able to help us to reduce the sale price by $50,000 and the seller accepted the offer.  She found us a very experienced home inspector and stayed with us for a 4-hour home inspection.   As a result of the findings in the home inspection, we still had concerns with such a large investment.  To alleviate our concerns, Becky found us a professional licensed structural engineer to inspect the house.  The engineer assured us that the home was structurally sound and well built.

We are thankful that Becky took the time during her busy open house to talk with us about what would be important to us.  Her ability to think and pay attention to our needs made a great difference. We now have a house that is well-worth the value we paid. We are enjoying it every day and are very proud of our investment. We sincerely thank Becky for her honesty and timeless support during our home purchase, which is one of the biggest decisions we have ever made. She is the best real estate agent you will ever find in Central Massachusetts. We strongly recommend her!

If you’re looking to buy and/or sell a house in Shrewsbury, there is only one choice for a realtor and that choice is Becky Dalke. Becky did an amazing job helping our young family transition from our "starter house” into our "home.” We met Becky shortly after we had started working with another real estate agent and I remember feeling very disappointed that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to work with her. We spent 10 long months looking for a house with our first agent and found nothing that felt like a home. For three of these months, we also had our house on the market and did not receive a single offer. Discouraged, we took our house off the market and put our search on hiatus as we prepared for the arrival of our second child.
 While Becky wasn’t our real estate agent at the time, she knew that we were having a hard time finding a home and wanted to help. Even while we were taking a break from our active search, we stayed in touch via email in case any suitable homes came on the market. Our first real estate agent never understood what we were looking for in a home and constantly encouraged us to compromise and settle for less. In contrast, Becky knew exactly what we were looking for and would stop at nothing to help us find it.
 With a newborn and a 2 year old in tow, we started our search again but this time we enlisted Becky’s help. In less than a month, we had found a great home and made a backup offer (since it already had an accepted offer). Unfortunately, the original deal held together so our search continued. When there was nothing on the market that interested us, Becky told us not to worry and started knocking on doors in our favorite neighborhoods to track down our dream home. Becky was able to find us multiple homes this way and provided us the unique opportunity to make an offer before the house even went on the market. In these circumstances, Becky was acting as a dual agent and was not permitted to advise us on price which made me extremely nervous. Becky calmed my fears by taking the time to teach me how to do my own comparative market analysis so that I would have confidence in our offer. This knowledge came in handy since the first 3 homes we made offers on were all listed by Becky. For a variety of reasons, our first 3 attempts were unsuccessful. For us, the fourth time was the charm. Looking back, we are so glad that the other three offers fell through because this is the home we were meant to buy. Becky found us the perfect home and we love it!

 Once we had found our dream home, it was time for us to reluctantly pass our starter home to a new family. Becky’s staging advice was simple and effective. We followed her advice and we had a signed offer at a great price in less than a week. We were thrilled. When it comes to buying and selling homes in Shrewsbury, the choice is clear. Call Becky Dalke today. You won’t regret it.

Nick & Angela-Shrewsbury, MA

Although it has only been about six weeks since we finalized the sale of our house, it seems like a very long time ago!

 Now that the dust has settled and Cathy and I have a chance to look back on the whole hectic process of putting our house on the market and getting all the way to closing, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for doing such a great job on our behalf. 

Your professionalism, your knowledge of the marketing and sales process and of the real estate market and your advice and counsel were always right on target and exactly what we needed.  This wasn't the first time either of us had ever bought or sold homes but it was by far the best real estate brokerage experience either of us has had.  We were probably pretty "high touch" clients and we want to thank you for always being available to answer any questions we had and for helping to guide us through the whole (sometimes nerve-wracking) experience!

If we can ever be of any assistance to you as a reference or if we could be helpful in any other way, please don't hesitate to let us know.

 

Tom & Cathy Kilcoyne-Shrewsbury, MA

We sold our home in Shrewsbury, MA when I took a new job with T. Rowe Price in Baltimore, MD. Becky did a great job working with the corporate relocation company. Becky's approach to working with her clients is very professional and personable. We priced the home correctly in a difficult market and had an offer at the end of our first open house. Much of this was due to Becky's deep knowledge of the local market and what it takes to sell your home. Becky partnered with us throughout the sale going above and beyond what was required. I would highly recommend Becky as your realtor, whether it is a local purchase/sale or a relocation effort. Becky delivers results.

Patrick & Patty Kinnucane-Shrewsbury, MA
To potential clients of Becky Dalke,

This letter is written urging you to utilize Becky Dalke as your realtor when marketing your home.

Becky, and her assistant Anne Coulson, are both skilled experts in Central Massachusetts residential real estate.
When Frank and I decided to leave Shrewsbury after 20 years, Becky was clearly our top choice.   Having heard around town that we were planning to relocate, she contacted us offering to help in any way that she could. She paid us a visit and made some suggestions as to how we could ready the property for the market, all this before we formally engaged her. Her suggestions really got us motivated to tackle the job of freshening up the house and landscaping the outside. Becky and Anne compiled a very detailed deion of our home in order to complete a market analysis of comparable properties to help us set our initial price in order to get top dollar for our property AND sell quickly.
Even though the house was not yet on the market, Frank and I were both spending considerable time away from Shrewsbury due to work and family commitments. Becky and Anne were very helpful in stopping in to check on the progress of the painting, carpeting and landscaping. When we were in town, Becky would stop in to keep us on track and see how we were doing. Their  encouragement was much appreciated!
Having missed the warm weather window, we were listing our house in November, hoping that we would not have to wait until spring for a buyer. Becky and Anne knew how to use various techniques when working our listing. Within three weeks, they held two open houses, a brokers’ luncheon and had a video tour produced and running on the web. When potential buyer activity slowed, Becky advised a slight price reduction which we decided to implement. Two weeks later, we had a solid offer which we accepted.
But Becky and Anne’s support did not end there. We closed within a month of accepting the offer which is very fast these days in the world of real estate. Becky and Anne insured this could happen by being totally organized and on top of everything. As we were no longer living in Shrewsbury, they helped immensely in moving things along that were required of us for the close. Becky handled the house inspection and took care of the logistics and paperwork from the smoke detector inspection. Knowing how hard it was for us to keep up with things from a distance, she and Anne directed us through the remaining tasks via E-mail and phone.

Take it from us, if you are looking for a real estate agent who will do ‘whatever it takes’ to sell your home, consider Becky Dalke. Frank and I clearly benefited by our choice!

Frank & Virginia Winship-Shrewsbury, MA

 After six months on-line searches and drive-bys, I started to go to open houses where I met some nice real estate agents, explaining to each what kind of home I was looking for, leaving with each my name, email, and phone numbers.  Four real estate agents in a row, however, never made any attempt to contact me.

While checking out another drive-by, the owner of the home saw me looking at his back yard and invited me to view the inside.  This is where he gave me the name of his agent – Becky Dalke.  Upon leaving my name and number with him, Becky called me immediately the next day.  Wow!  The first person to acknowledge me!  Becky and I got together in her office and we discussed my likes and dislikes.

After looking at hundreds of homes on my own, it was the first house with my new agent that I bought.  She always returned my phone calls and emails promptly.  Becky Dalke and her great Assistant Anne Coulson made the closing a breeze.

Thanks Becky and Anne!

Karyn Philblade-Shrewsbury, MA

Becky helped us buy our first home in 2012.

We had a different agent before we met Becky. We were having a very bad experience and felt that we were being forced to buy a home by my agent. Every home we looked at was the "best house in this world”, according to that agent. We started feeling that home buying would be like buying a used car. It was very stressful.

We got Becky's number through a referral. Right from our first meeting it was very professional. She spent time with us working through our expectations as well as our wish list. Everything she presented was professionally prepared. We liked that all our questions were answered,  based on facts and solid research and those facts were shared with us. When we went out  to see homes she would point out things we should be looking at and raising red flags if she saw something not right.

In just a few visits we found the house we liked. She was able to get the price of the house from asking price to the price we were comfortable with.

I would highly recommend Becky if you want your home buying experience to be smooth and want it stress free. It was a pleasure to work with her and her team.

 

Sitanshu Sinha & Shilpi Gupta-Shrewsbury, MA

It is with delight that my wife and I write this letter to recommend Becky Dalke to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Central Massachusetts area. As first time home buyers, we had decided to work with Becky even before we started looking because of the great work she had done for our parents.  In more ways than one, Becky has proven that she is the best. As we began our search we were unsure of our wants and needs.  Becky’s guidance helped us to make the right decisions while being mindful of all the possibilities.  As we started to view properties Becky learned quickly that the couple who didn’t have a clue in the beginning had become extremely particular. 

 

What did she do?  She went out and found us the house of our dreams that hadn’t even hit the market.  As we continued through the process of purchasing the home, Becky was always available to us whenever there was something we were unsure of or didn’t understand.  As I cleaned up my email box this month I was laughing because there had to have been 100 emails from Becky – all responses to my endless questions.  She is a hard working, honest, upfront realtor that brings the entire package together.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with Becky and we can’t thank her enough for helping us bring our dreams to a reality.  

 

Whether you’re an experienced homebuyer or a first timer, Becky Dalke is the smart choice!

Melissa & Michael Pope-West Boylston, MA
   
Recently my husband and I made a very difficult decision to put our family home up for sale.  We agonized over this because we treasured everything about our house.  We methodically researched, while seeking a Realtor who was highly-skilled and could be empathetic while guiding us through the process of selling.

 

In hiring Becky Dalke, we found those qualities and many more.  Her professionalism and integrity were immediately apparent, and remained so, as she led us in her confident, yet open style, inviting us to give our input whenever we wanted to.

 

During our many phone calls to Becky, she was always patient and available, providing us with a quick response to our questions, whether they were trivial or required research.  She went above and beyond in marketing our home, even to the extent of walking our dog for miles during house showings!

 

The business aspect of selling our house was uncomplicated, as we took advantage of the cadre of people who work closely with Becky in all aspects of real estate.  We were consistently given sage advice, which, coupled with Becky’s unbridled enthusiasm and creativity, enabled our house to be sold very quickly, and get a price we were very pleased with.

 

We highly recommend Becky Dalke as an outstanding Realtor, to any potential clients who are seeking "simply the best.”

      
Patti & Richard Johnson-Shrewsbury, MA

Now that we have closed on the sale of our home in Boston, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the work that you did in marketing our home, as well as counseling us on the process and strategy.  I thought you were very professional and easy to work with, even in the more difficult discussions around lowering the price of our home when it became necessary.   This was certainly a difficult market to sell in, and I think you did a great job for us.

Please also thank Anne for me....the two of you make a great team.

Doug Chapman-Grafton, MA

 As the time approached to put our home on the market, we knew one thing for sure , our realtor would be Becky Dalke. She has sold virtually every house in our neighborhood and considering the somewhat depressed market she has gotten great prices in a short time frame.

 

Becky came to our home and "gently" suggested what improvements we should do to make our home more marketable. She was on the mark with each and everyone of them.

 

Our home sold in less than five weeks!  Becky was a total pleasure to work with and kept us informed every step of the way.  She is by far the Realtor of Choice

COMMUNITY ADVOCATE ARTICLE - JANUARY 20,2012

 

I was so excited when Community Advocate contacted me for an interview. It is nice to be able to tell my positive point of view on our current real estate market. It is a far different perspective than what we hear in the national news. Looking forward to what 2012 brings!

Community Advocate 2012
We wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping us find the perfect home in so little time.  Our plan was to rent while looking for a home, but that ended up not being necessary which saved us a good deal of money not to count the pain of moving into temporary housing.  You took the time to really listen to what we were looking for and helped us to consider properties we may have overlooked.  The homes you showed us fit the criteria we were looking for which eliminated needless time.
Your experience also helped us to see challenges with some properties even when it meant not selling it. In today's real estate market it is more important then ever to have a great buyers agent such as yourself.
Thanks again for all your help
Don & Lynda Cantin-Holden, MA

Although it has taken us longer to write than we had hoped, Kathy and I wanted to express how pleased we are with everything you did while we were selling our house.  It is almost impossible to think how things could have gone more smoothly.

 

From our initial interview with you until the closing on our house a mere eight weeks later you proved yourself to be a consummate professional.  Your analysis of our property and your suggestions for pricing and preparing our house for sale were right on target.  The fact that we had an offer for full asking price with no contingencies within hours of our one and only Open House showed that you had done your homework and marketed our house well.

 

We also appreciated your care and concern for our house during the time we were away prior to closing.  That freak October snowstorm, which knocked down several trees on our property, would have caused us to interrupt our vacation if you hadn’t assessed the situation, informed us of the tree damage, and helped us to arrange for clean-up.  Thanks to your diligence a potentially disruptive occurrence became only a minor nuisance.

 

All in all Kathi and I agree that we could not have been happier with your approach and service.  We liked that you were honest, direct, and forthright and treated the home-selling process as a partnership between you and us.  That process worked well and kept all of us involved from beginning to end.

 

We are now living happily in our new home in Delaware.  Thanks to you and your associate, Anne, the selling of our Shrewsbury house went quickly and smoothly.  Best wishes as you continue your excellent work on behalf of all your clients.

Jim & Kathi Colman-Shrewsbury, MA

Earlier this year we decided to place our home on the market. I told a Friend I was looking for a realtor who was easy to work with and she immediately told me to call Becky Dalke. She knew of Becky from many recommendations from friends from Shrewsbury. She also knew Becky personally and found her to be a friendly and professional person.

  From our first meeting we could tell that Becky Dalke knew her market and would be the right person to list our home. She had years of experience and was very honest and open about the things we should do to get our house sold quickly. We took her advice and found our house sold in a short amount of time in a difficult market. Becky did much negotiating for us and was always willing to go the extra mile to get the deal done and make
sure everyone was happy. Becky has a great capacity to get things done quickly and efficiently and has many contacts in the real estate field. We would not hesitate to recommend Becky Dalke to anyone with any real estate needs.

Jeff & Renee Lowe-Shrewsbury, MA

When we contacted Becky Dalke earlier this year to help sell our home, we honestly did not know what to expect. We can now tell you that it was a great decision!

  

We were impressed with Becky from the time we met to interview her. She was easy to talk to, confident and was knowledgeable about the real estate market. Her market analysis was clear, comprehensive and accurate. What sets her apart from other realtors that we have dealt with in the past is that she has a system – a real plan. She worked with us to stage the house to get it ready. The listing with photos and video looked great. The feedback after each showing (based on a questionnaire to the buyer or agent) was usually received by the end of the day.

 

What impressed us most is that Becky is honest, extremely organized and is on top of each and every little detail – this starts on day one and does not stop till after closing. In a tough real estate market, this is exactly the approach needed – it is no wonder that our house was the 25th that she sold in 2011 (yes folks you read it right – 25 homes sold in 2011 as of late September!). You will not find many things that she does in a typical job deion for a realtor – we can tell you from experience that she (and her assistant Anne) are fabulous.

 

If you want your home sold, you owe it to yourself to give Becky an opportunity. We are sure that if you are in the market to buy a home, the same qualities we mention above will help you in your search. We strongly recommend Becky as your realtor!

Julieta & Ramesh Divakar-Shrewsbury, MA

Although many good real estate agents work in this area, Becky Dalke is exceptional. We worked with Becky this past summer and knew within minutes of meeting her that we were in very good hands.   

 

When we first met Becky, we felt comfortable with her immediately. She listened attentively and we quickly learned that she understood the challenges of the current real estate market extremely well. No matter what we asked or had concerns about, Becky offered knowledgeable, insightful answers that truly helped us make informed decisions.

 

Being an experienced professional isn't the only reason Becky is successful. She brings much to the table for her clients. Her attention to detail, creativity, and vision are evident as she plans the best, most effective way to market your current home or find the right home to meet your needs.  In our situation, Becky was able to coordinate our offer and closing in a little over 30 days and found the sellers a new home that wasn't even on the market.  Without Becky's knowledge of the current market in Central MA, we would not have been able to make the deal happen. 

 

Even though Becky had multiple clients at the time, we always felt like we were important to her; receiving prompt responses and due diligence every step of the way. Also, it wasn't just Becky who was wonderful. Her assistant, Anne, and each resource she suggested to us, whether it was a moving company, loan officer, attorney, or home inspector, was responsive, ethical, and professional.

 

The process of buying or selling a home can be wrought with unexpected challenges and circumstances and we feel very fortunate that Becky was our agent. Frankly, she was the best person for the job. The end result is that now we are living in a home that is a perfect fit for our family and we are left feeling very positive about the entire experience.

 

 If you're thinking about buying or selling your home, call Becky. In short, she knows her stuff, she puts her clients' interests first, and she is a pleasure to work with. We recommend her highly.

A Real-estate Odyssey

 

My wife and I first met Becky at an open house in the fall of 2009.  Although we had encountered many realtors, Becky’s knowledge, personality and professionalism convinced us that she was the person to guide us through what we anticipated would surely be an epic adventure.    We had a lot to accomplish in the months to come – plan a wedding, get married, sell two townhouses, and buy the perfect home. 

 

Our townhouses went on the market in 2010.  Despite a very difficult market (to say the least), and some challenging negotiations, Becky was able to facilitate the sale of both homes.  This of course was just the beginning. 

 

Having purchased a number of homes over the years and been exposed to dozens more during our search, we had a fairly specific notion of what we wanted.  It was quite simple actually – we just wanted the interior layout, exterior design, lot and neighborhood to be perfect…while not paying a dime over market value. 

 

After much searching and disqualifying homes for any number of reasons (some may describe us as particular), we found a brand new house that met our criteria in the Highfields Golf Course development, Grafton, MA.   A custom home with open layout and high end features, a picturesque lot, and a great neighborhood convenient to work.  The price was more than we wanted to pay, however, and as you may be aware, builders are generally unwilling to move on price.   Nonetheless, armed with her market analysis, Becky carried out a thoughtful and extremely well-orchestrated negotiation.  We were able to secure the property for $50k under the asking price – very unusual for a brand new home.   

 

 Now, a few months later, we are truly enjoying our new house.  Whether it’s decorating or landscaping, eating dinner on our deck with the beautiful view or going for walks in an idyllic setting – a perfect outcome.      

 

So as we look forward to many years in our beautiful home and think back to the 18 month journey with Becky (including 3 real estate transactions and a marriage) there is certainly one thing we can say without reservation - if you are looking to buy or sell property, we would highly recommend Becky to manage all of your real-estate needs. 

Lucia & Steve Eaton-Grafton, MA

Thank you for all that you did to prepare our house for its sale and your follow-through after it was sold.  We were amazed by the seamlessness of the transaction.  We are positive it was due to your calm and professional manner, real estate knowledge and prowess.  The communication from you and your assistant, Anne was superb; always covering the details both big and small every step of the way.  After working with you, we believe you are truly the best in the business.  It is no surprise you are so successful.  If Fausto has not told you yet, you have a training session with him on us.  Enjoy the workout!

 

On a side note, thank you very much for the Edible arrangement and note of congratulations.  It was so thoughtful of you to think of us.  Gabriella especially enjoyed the fruit.  We are settling in and adjusting to the new house; working feverishly to making it "ours.”

 

If and when we know someone who is looking for an agent in your area, we will not hesitate to recommend you and sing your praises.

Bill & Trish Kelley-Grafton, MA

Becky Dalke saved the day!  We had initially listed our home with another agent to no avail.  Once we were out of that contract we contacted Becky and she was a breath of fresh air!  Becky listened to our particular needs, then gave perfect direction on staging and pricing our home.

To make things even more complicated, in the middle of everything, we decided to head south for the winter.  In our absence, Becky had to step in and market our home, keep it in tip-top shape for showings and an open house.  Her expertise showed every step of the way as she made the final sale within a month.  Becky's communication skills and knowledge made this a successful chapter for the Bury family!

In all of our years and multiple moves across the country, this has proven to be the most positive experience.  We highly recommend and will continually sing Becky's praises.  She's honest, forthright and dedicated and a true pleasure to work with.

Mark & Debbie Bury-Shrewsbury, MA

Some choices in life are hard; others are easy. As you have probably figured out by now, most choices involving real estate are complicated and difficult. That is the bad news. 

 

However, there is one choice in the realm of real estate that is incredibly easy- who to choose to be your agent. The answer is simple: Becky Dalke.

 

How can we be so sure? We know because we had the pleasure of working with Becky, and we met with nothing but success every step of the way. In a market described as the worst anyone had experienced in his or her lifetime, we were able sell our home in 5 DAYS at 7.75% ABOVE our asking price! Then, we found a once-in-a-lifetime, impeccably restored historic home and had our first offer accepted, including all the extras we requested! Finally, we successfully closed both deals on the same day just 2 months after we accepted the offer from our buyers. If this is what Becky Dalke can accomplish in the worst market ever, just imagine what she can do in a good market! 

With Becky, no detail is left unattended to, no question left unanswered, no problem left unsolved. Each and every day she does what is required of her to provide the most thorough and professional service to her clients. And in a manner that makes the tense, nerve-wracking process of buying or selling a home as fun and enjoyable as it could be possibly be. But don't let the pleasant upbeat manner lead you to wonder if Becky is "too nice" to do what it takes to be sure that you, her client, gets the best deal possible. Because Becky will not allow you to pay one dime more for a property than what she has determined it is worth, and she will do everything in her power to ensure that you receive every last penny of value from the home you are selling. And that is no exaggeration!

 
So don't waste any more time and energy on making the easiest decision there is to make during this whole grueling process- just call Becky and hire her! After all, you will need all that time and energy to do prepare your home for sale, search for the property of your dreams, and fill out all those forms. nd all those tasks will be made easier because you will have Becky on your side.

 

That's all there is to it.

I feel truly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Becky Dalke.  My house in Shrewsbury had been on the market with a different realtor for a few months with limited activity.  After a brief period off the market I decided to try again and began interviewing brokers.  I was feeling discouraged by the dropping market and also the process itself until I met Becky.  She was clearly above and beyond any of her competitors in her knowledge of real estate and her commitment to her buyers and sellers.

 

After carefully inspecting the home, she offered simple recommendations to make it more marketable.  She gave me a "video" package to view which helped me understand the importance of correct pricing.  We met and reviewed the process.  She did an extremely technical market analysis and her experience working in Shrewsbury was evident.  Becky was extremely professional and attentive throughout the entire process and always willing to answer questions.

 

The house went on the market while I was away on vacation for a few days.  When I returned, I had two offers on my home and many people returning for a second visit.  I was amazed and very relieved.  Although my house sold quickly, Becky was in contact with us daily.  Most days I spoke with Becky several times.  What impressed me most about Becky was her intuitive negotiating abilities as well as her attention to every detail.  I learned so much working with Becky and when I am ready to buy again, I will definitely call her.

Lucy Lubke-Shrewsbury, MA

We recently sold our home in Shrewsbury through Becky Dalke.   Becky heard that we were looking to sell and stopped by our home one afternoon.  We had already planned to go with another realtor, but Becky convinced us she was the one to use.  We were not disappointed.

Our experience with Becky was more than just a "sale".  She took a genuine interest in working with us and helped position our home to sell quickly during the worst real estate market in decades.  Becky did not simply list our house and hope for a buyer.  Instead, she proactively sought out buyers by going door to door seeking referrals from our neighbors, sent out flyers, held several open houses including a broker open house luncheon and came up with creative incentives to bring prospective buyers to our home.  

We moved out of state prior to closing on our home.  Becky continued to work for us throughout this time until closing.  She met with inspectors, contractors and the fire department on our behalf and ran numerous errands including making small purchases and paying our final utility bills. 

With our house closed Becky´s job should have been done.  However, when the new home owner contacted her months later to say they were receiving some of our mail.  She promptly sent it to us. 

This is the work of a dedicated professional.   If you are looking for a real estate agent, we highly recommend Becky Dalke.

Mary Ann & Phil Pietrowski-Shrewsbury, MA

Thanks to your realistic appraisal and pricing of my property in West Boylston, as well as your masterful and creative marketing of it, the house SOLD within weeks of listing with you and your firm, Keller Williams Realty.  And you accomplished this during one of the most difficult real estate markets in recent history!

 

To say that I am grateful to you seems to me to be an understatement.  I realize that as a real estate professional  this is what you get paid to do ? selling real estate - but in my experience I believe that your performance in this transaction was over-the-top and exceptional beyond expectation.  

 

Here is my story:

 

In October of 2005 I purchased a 3700 square-foot Colonial in a private sale with the intent of refinishing and improving the property for resale (also known as ?flipping´).  At the time, I had recently retired from a long career in business and went looking for an outlet to occupy my time, and since I had prior experience and success in real estate I decided to pursue this course.  After substantial investment of my time and finances, the house was placed on the market with a national real estate firm with a long and highly successful local sales record.  Their market analysis was in the middle price range of three other professional price estimates and I listed with them in January of 2006.

 

Following several months of moderate showing activity, three failed buyer offers, three listing extensions and two price reductions I finally allowed the listing to lapse 9 months later and found a tenant that was prepared to lease/purchase the property.  This turned out to be a mistake and resulted in the need to evict the tenant 7 months later.  The property was re-listed with the original realtor, but suffered the same fate as the first listing from the ongoing decline of the real estate market.  When the former listing agent agreement finally lapsed, I luckily found you and listed with your firm.

 

In retrospect, I realize now that with the first real estate firm I was initially chasing the markets downward spiral by making suggested price reduction changes after the fact, and working with agents whose primary strength came from working for big name realty firms, rather than proven individual performance records in weak markets.  That all changed when I met you.

 

Only days after our initial phone call, you were already prepared with a realistic market appraisal, supported by a large and well presented collection of data in order to properly price and present my property in the current market.  You followed this with an innovative and creative marketing plan.  I cannot say enough about your dedication to the task of showing the property, locating eligible buyers and negotiating a successful agreement on my behalf. 

 

After this experience, I firmly believe that you are the best real estate agent anyone could hope for to represent them in this challenging marketplace.  You are a true professional, and one that the dozens and dozens of real estate agents that I have met over a lifetime can only aspire to become.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  And for my gratitude, I offer that you use my name and story as a referral for any of your future clients.

 

Pete Dumont-West Boylston, MA

My husband Steve and I recently had the pleasure of working with Becky Dalke on the sale of our past home and purchase of our new residence.  Throughout the process, Becky was extremely professional, understood our specific needs, and maintained a steadfast "can do" attitude ? even in a very challenging real estate market.  She sold our home very quickly and went above and beyond to find us a new home.

 

Last May we put our residence at 10 Bracken Road in Shrewsbury on the market.  The house sold in two days for $20,000 over the asking price!  Given that the real estate market was slow (not to mention flooded with comparable homes that were not selling) we were thrilled.  Becky´s expertise and advice were instrumental in selling the house so successfully.  She did a number of things to ensure that we would sell the house quickly and at the highest price possible. Specifically, Becky:

 

-          Performed a thorough market analysis and identified appropriate "comps" in order to set the price right the first time.

-          Suggested ways to "stage" the house.

-          Creatively marketed the house and effected a sense of excitement around the sale (ultimately leading to a bidding war in the end).

-          Effectively and tactfully worked with potential buyers and their agents.

-          Carefully monitored the follow-up steps that needed to be taken on both the buyer and seller sides in order for the sale to close.

 

We became increasingly impressed with Becky when it came time to find our new home.  Given that it was a "buyer´s market" we assumed that finding the right house would be easy - but nothing could have been further from the truth!  As fate would have it, there were very few houses on the market that met our criteria. 

 

Becky went to "Herculean" lengths to find us the right home.  She knew exactly what things were important to us and never once pushed us toward a home simply to close the deal.  For over three months, she kept a vigilant eye on the market and called us as soon as a viable prospect came up.  With time running out before we needed to vacate our home, she became even more creative with her strategies.  She identified homes that had been on the market earlier in the year and had then been taken off ? and called the homeowners to see if they would be interested in selling.  Further, Becky spent time driving us around town to see what types of homes appealed to us, and was more than willing to ring doorbells if we saw one that looked interesting. Becky´s perseverance paid off in August after she found a "For Sale by Owner" that met our needs.

 

I  strongly recommend Becky Dalke to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in these difficult economic times.  She´s experienced, smart, creative, driven, and always puts her clients´ needs and issues first.  She is also a joy to work with!

Karen & Steve Bean-Shrewsbury, MA

    

If you are looking to buy or sell a home, Becky Dalke is your realtor. From the very first meeting with Becky we found her to be professional and hard working.   She initially sat down with us to find out why we wanted to move and what we were looking for in a new home. After that Becky worked tirelessly with us to find the home that we wanted.

 

We also had a great experience in the sale of our house. We came up with the right price for our house to sell in this very competitive market.  Becky gave us helpful hints to get our house staged for showing. She also went the extra mile in preparation for selling our house, including going door-to-door around our neighborhood to let the neighbors know we were selling in case they knew someone who was looking to live in this area. Within 14 days of the open house we had multiple offers, allowing us the luxury of choosing the best offer for our situation - one that allowed us to close on the sale and rent back from the new owners while our new construction was being completed.  Our house sold quickly enough that a neighbor decided to have Becky list their house after we told them our story and the pleasant experience we had with her.  Their house has a "Sale Pending" sign in the front lawn as I write this.

 

Becky works hard which is so important when you want your home sold in a timely manner.  Becky always kept the lines of communication open, answered all of our questions, and did more than we ever expected.  In this current housing and economic markets we are fortunate to have everything fall into place. We would certainly use Becky again and recommend her highly. 

 

AnneMarie & Dr. Steve Bird-Shrewsbury, MA

When Paul first asked to have an interview with you before we decided to engage you as our agent, we weren´t sure how you would react.  We wanted to make sure we could work with you and that we could trust our future to you.  You responded in the most professional of ways and from that first day to the closing on the sale of our condo, you never wavered.  Your first strength became apparent when you identified a "team" of professionals to help us.  The mortgage lender and the attorney you referred us to work with were simply amazing.  We had worked with the mortgage lender on our previous purchase, but the attorney you recommended was also the "best".  You began our relationship by educating us as to the market issues in buying and selling our homes.  Your advice on staging our home and showing it was invaluable.  Neither Paul nor I have ever worked so hard to "please" someone who was actually working for us!

 

While buying our new home was relatively easy, you worked diligently on finding us a new home and made the purchase of that home a pleasure.  You helped us to make good decisions on rejecting some homes and "waiting" for the right one.  When we found our home, the first few exchanges were so scary.  Yet, you stayed right there with us, asking the right question, and listening to our answers.  You took us from the first offer to the closing without a problem.  We love our new home.

 

However, we are most grateful for your efforts in selling our condo.  Unfortunately for us, we decide to sell our condo when the market took its worst downturn in 20 years!  As soon as we put our condo on the market, it plummeted and kept plummeting over the four months before we finally closed.  During that time, your efforts were amazing.  In spite of numerous open houses and lots of interest, qualified buyers simply were scarce.  We would get discouraged and you would find yet another way to market our home, always coming up with ideas.  When we met to brainstorm new ways to attract buyers, you even followed up on our suggestions!  I´ll always remember the day you told me you went "door to door" so to speak in placing flyers at manufacturing centers and at the UMass Medical School.  You made us feel apart of a "team" dedicated to selling our home.  We were especially grateful when times looked bleak and you wouldn´t let us even think negative thoughts!  Your e-mails and routine calls to check in kept us going in spite of the worsening market.  Paul and I were always ready for a "hang in there call" from you.

 

When a qualified buyer finally came along, you moved into an even higher gear and didn´t let a moment go by before you began working on our behalf.  Even when you were recovering from a horrible cold and should have stayed in bed, you attended a showing to make sure the potential buyer could see "the entire picture".  Your knowledge and experience as a real estate agent clearly came in to play as we moved toward the final transactions of our condo.   During the process our attorney discovered a problem with our deed to the condo that required contacting the previous owner of 6 years earlier.  Before he could even begin to locate the owner, you took it on yourself to investigate, "Google" and locate him so we could clear up the issue.  You did not let even the smallest detail slip by!    Right up to the hour before closing you were there at the walk through making sure everything was okay.

 

Just as important as your work ethic, your knowledge and skills, your contacts, and overall effort, was "just you as a person".  Your kindness and ability to empathize are rare traits in people these days.  You understood our fears, hopes and dreams and actually shared them with us.  You even welcomed and made our dogs feel special!  We feel like we not only had a professional working for us, but that we have developed a new friend in the process.  Paul and I will be forever grateful for all you have done for us.  I hope we can maintain contact in the years to come and when we decide to sell/purchase again, you will be our first choice and the only realtor we would recommend to others.

Bridgett & Paul Galvin-Worcester, MA

Have you ever heard the saying, "there´s never a crowd on the extra mile"? It´s what we think of when we reflect on our working relationship with Becky Dalke. Here´s our story:

 

I met Becky a few years ago through the Welcome Wagon Club of Shrewsbury where we served on the board together. I appreciated her enthusiasm and noticed that her salesmanship trickled throughout each project that we worked on as a board so I had a hunch that she was probably also a good realtor!

 

Last Fall (2005), my husband and I were presented with an opportunity to be relocated to the West Coast via a promotion with his company and we knew we had to hussle to sell our house before the holidays. I called Becky to let her know that we´d like to talk to her about selling our house, and I also mentioned that we´d been speaking to another realtor who had a lot of experience selling other condos within our neighborhood. Becky jumped at the chance to talk to us and promptly arrived at our home with a creative package of materials including her credentials for us to review. Becky´s presentation was creative and thorough, and most importantly, extremely professional. I especially appreciated that she did not assume that she should get our business just because of the personal connection that we´d already shared.

 

When it came time to finally list our home, Becky gave me detailed directions on preparing and staging our house for the market, all with the intention to make the home feel as large as possible and to appeal to as many buyers as possible. And when the "big day" arrived and we received what we felt was a good offer on the home, Becky went to extra lengths to ensure that we would have the opportunity to choose the best offer, not just the first offer. We were prepared to sign the deal and be done, and I´m sure that any other realtor would have been inclined to follow our lead, but Becky is persistent! As a result, I am absolutely convinced she got top dollar for our house, which obviously meant more money in our pocket.

 

We´d assured Becky that selling our house would not likely be an entirely smooth process based on the uniqueness of our neighborhood, and the fact that we were working through a relocation company which would be involved as well. Sure enough, when the hiccups started to arise and I started to panic, Becky calmly worked through each issue, which allowed me to focus on my family and our upcoming move.

 

We are now settled into our new home on the West Coast, and we´re thrilled to be able to provide a strong, and enthusiastic recommendation for Becky. Our business dealings in New England were not always positive, and it was rare that we had the opportunity to work with someone like Becky who not only enjoys what she does, but she takes pride in her work. We found her style so refreshing and we think you will too!

 

The Noreng Family-Shrewsbury, MA

We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your hard work and good advice as we sold our house in Shrewsbury.  Never in our wildest dreams did we expect to sell in 4 days, given the current market.  It was clearly due to your excellent advice in pricing the property and your strong marketing plan that drove potential buyers to the door.  

 
Your references all said that you were not the typical real estate agent, but we found that to be true on our own.  Thank you so much for making our move as easy as you did.  We greatly enjoyed working with you.
Rick & Jen O'Brien-Shrewsbury, MA

We have bought and sold homes from coast to coast five times in eighteen years.  As a result, we have worked with many realtors and relocation companies.  Becky Dalke is by far the best!  She is professional and efficient, as well as honest and sincere.  She truly cares about her clients and their best interests, and she understands all aspects of residential real estate.

 

We sold our home in Massachusetts in the fall of 2006, when the market had just about "bottomed out".  Becky´s thorough research and well prepared presentation helped us determine a "starting" sale price.  Becky then helped us prepare our home for showings in a manner which would highlight all of the positive aspects of our property.  She also agreed to work with the relocation company that was moving us to Minnesota.  We were on the road within two weeks.  Becky remained in daily contact with us, either by phone or email.  She gave us feedback from showings, both positive and negative.  She took care of every imaginable detail including making sure lights were turned on before showings and then turned off after showings.  Becky advised us as to when we should consider changing our asking price, always based on current research and market analysis.  She also remained very positive and reassuring.  At times while our house was on the market she must have felt more like a counselor than a realtor.  Becky took care of every detail pertaining to the sale of the house.  Even though we were 1500 miles away we were confident that the sale would go smoothly3;. And it did, thanks to Becky´s hard work and dedication.  When it was finally time for us to buy a new home, Becky gave us tips and feedback to help us purchase the best house for our needs at the best price.  We definitely will contact Becky Dalke when we move back to Massachusetts!!

I recently sold Beverly Greer's house in two weeks, with multiple offers above the asking price. Here is what she had to say about her experience working with me.I am one happy Home Owner and Home Seller. Having lived for 24 years in my home in Shrewsbury, the last 3 of those years alone, the thought of selling my home and moving out of State was overwhelming. My move took me across the country to a western state and could not have been accomplished with such ease without the help of my Real Estate Broker....Becky Dalke!!! I just cannot say enough good things about Becky and Keller Williams. Her professionalism, efficiency, creative marketing skills, constant feedback, attention to each and every detail, genuine concern for my welfare, attending the home inspection and closing....I could go on and on. She didn't miss a beat from start to finish!!! I felt like I was the only customer she had. I'm only sorry that I have moved so far away that I can't be where YOU are to share my experiences with you. So, please accept this letter as the best word-of-mouth recommendation that I can give you that if you are selling or buying a home - BECKY DALKE- is the gal you want representing you.

Beverly Greer-Shrewsbury, MA

We wanted to write and thank you for all the support, encouragement, counsel, and advise that you have given us over the past year.  We were very impressed with your thorough analysis, planning, hard work and commitment to helping us to sell our home.  You worked tirelessly and at times we felt like we were your only clients, which of course was not the case.

 

Your professional counseling also helped us avoid major pitfalls that could have resulted in our losing time and more importantly losing a potential buyer.  You were always honest  with us, giving us the "good" and the "bad" news so that we knew exactly what we were dealing with, what we had to do, and when it had to be done. 

 

Becky, you always went to extra mile when we needed you most.  You helped us maneuver through the bureaucracy of local government and secure the services of engineers and contractors to ensure our home was ready when it came time to close. 

 

Finally we want to thank you for your friendship, not just during the past several months but for the many years that we lived in Shrewsbury.  Friendship is ultimately based on trust and loyalty and you have been trustworthy and loyal to us and our family.  Your integrity is without question and your concern for fairness and honesty are your hallmark.  We will continue to tell friends and acquaintances either moving into our out of your area about your excellent support and service.

Kevin & Sue Schmidt-Shrewsbury, MA
Kathy actually purchased the Schmidt's house in Shrewsbury.  They worked directly with me, even though I was the seller's agent.  This is what Kathy and Michael had to say of their experience working with me.
 

Becky was both the listing agent as well as our representative in the purchase of our home. I could not have been more pleased with how she handled every aspect of the transaction with great respect for and fairness to both parties.  Becky lives by extremely high ethical principals. 

 

On a personal note, I really appreciated your warmth and kindness and how well you took care of me during the process.  I think that you area top-notch real estate agent, the best.  You are caring and supportive AND you possess the business skills to negotiate and seal the deal with everyone felling respected.  I will recommend you to everyone I meet and plan to give your name out to WPI as a great realtor for them to recommend  to incoming faculty.

Kathy Notarianni-Shrewsbury, MA
I recently helped Brien and Jennifer Srnka to purchase a home they love and sold their home in 4 days, with 9 offers, all above the asking price. This is what they had to say about me. "Becky was expeditious in her search for our new home, patient with our interpretations regarding properties but most of all she let us drive the requirements. Never once did she force her opinion on us. She is very professional. We are very impressed with the ethical nature of her business practices, which is difficult to find these days. We found it easy to trust her word, her methods and her strategies. Becky's business contacts also displayed the same degree of professionalism. She does her homework and is dedicated to offering a complete package to her clientele. We are very pleased with the results Becky generated for us, representing us as the buyers and then as the sellers. With her keen insight into the market, her evaluation of what we had to offer and the qualification of our time constraints, she created the most amazing environment in which to sell our home. The overall result was amazing and we are so impressed with the ease and simplicity of all the related transactions. Becky did an amazing job for us, and for that we have some serious smiles on our faces!

 

Brien and Jennifer Srnka-Shrewsbury, MA

Having looked for a home with another realtor for over a year with no luck, Jennifer and Patrick Conlan started working with me. After I worked with them to find the home of their dreams this is what they had to say "It seemed like we were treading water for about a year until we met you at that open house last summer, and subsequently started looking for a house with your help. Your good advice and research made what seemed to be a nearly impossible task into a rational, comfortable, manageable process which resulted in our finally getting exactly what we wanted. On top of that, you were obviously instrumental in the actual offering, inspecting, and financing aspects of buying our house. The mortgage consultant you recommended was excellent, and we had one of the most straight forward closings anyone could hope for. I have already recommended you to several co-workers and friends, and hopefully you can be as much help to them as you were to us. We feel lucky that we happened to meet you and want you to know that in addition to all the professional help you gave us, we personally enjoyed your company and spending time with you as we went through our search. We couldn't have done it without you!

 

 

Patrick & Jennifer Conlan-Franklin, MA

We had the pleasure of selling our home located in Shrewsbury Hunt, a Toll Brothers Community in the town of Shrewsbury through Becky dalke.  She is a very efficient, personable and professional realtor.

 

Our selling process was made so simple and peaceful by Becky.  We would highly recommend you to give her a try!  Her attention to detail, accessibility and knowledge of the real estate market enabled us to focus on the children and keeping our energies focused on the "transition" rather than the selling process.

 

From the initial meeting to post sale of the house we were informed of every step and her willingness to go out of her way endeared her to us even more.  Wishing you the very best professionally and personally now and always.  May all the homes you deal with have great "Vaastoo" and good "Feng Shui".

Ajit and Vibhu Nagral-Shrewsbury, MA
