"We first reached out to Betsy because she came highly recommended from my coworker, and the recommendation was backed up completely by our entire experience working together.
As first-time home buyers, we didn't really know what to expect going into this process. Betsy was patient with us, and took the time to explain every step in detail. She listened to the items that we wanted in a home, set realistic expectations, and quickly set up times for us to see homes that fit our needs. In fact, she encouraged us to go look at a home that we thought didn't look that great in the online photos and didn't really want to pursue -- it ended up being the one we purchased! Betsy has a knack for getting to the key issues quickly, and her knowledge of the market and the inventory means you're already ahead of the game when working with her.
Once we found our home, she expertly guided us through the all the remaining steps to get us to closing quickly and efficiently -- her extensive network of local vendors meant we didn't have to spend time searching for companies to use. She even handled meeting with vendors at the location for estimates when we were unable due to work or other conflicts.
Because she's been in the industry full-time for so many years, she also has existing relationships with the other real estate agents and realtors who you'll be dealing with -- she expertly handled the negotiations with the homeowner's agent, and we came away with a great deal on a house that we love.
I can't say enough good things about Betsy. Even now that we have our home, she's still someone that I go to for any homeowner-care referral -- or really even just to catch up and chat. She's warm, friendly, and someone I know that I'd recommend to anyone, and will use again in the future if we ever sell or buy a new home.

"Betsy is a wonderful, very caring realtor with deep expertise in her market and strong negotiation skills. She helped us land a home we never thought we'd actually find and was a pleasure to deal with throughout the proceedings. You will not regret selecting her as your agent!"
- Anjali Gupta & Mark Rowe
"Betsy is the best. She helped us buy a house without us even seeing it in person at first! She was our eyes and ears and made sure we were well informed every step of the way. Buying a home long distance can be stressful, but she actually made it fun. She was always responsive. I cannot say enough good things about her. I will definitely recommend her to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell a house!"
- Maria Archangelo
"Betsy helped us navigate through a very complex sale of our home. She was quick to respond and very thorough. She worked well with a difficult and slow to move lender on the buyer side. Highly recommend!"
- Sabrina Couturier
"Betsy was fabulous helping me prepare my house for sale as well as finding a condo that made sense for me and my little dog.
She helped me prioritize what to do to our home for sale and negotiated a price that was higher than I had expected to get.
She also sought out a condo for me. This was a challenge since I wanted to bring the dog and wanted to be among trees and needed to keep the monthly costs low.
There were other challenges as well including a broken wrist. She helped me sign paperwork via computer since it was too painful to sign my name.
Emotionally, she was patient with me in the midst of all the stress. I have been very pleased with my new condo!"
- Gabriela Assagioli
"Betsy was very patient in showing us many possible condominiums and ended up finding exactly the right place for us. The closing went smoothly because of her extensive knowledge of how to handle the procedure. Our experience showed her to be an ideal real estate agent."
- Sharon Weissbach
"Betsy was wonderful. She is extremely knowledgeable, and gets to know you so she can introduce you properties that work for you. She is also extremely patient! She must have showed us twenty properties while we figured out exactly what we wanted and exactly what we could afford! In the end she found us a beautiful, large house in a fantastic neighborhood in an extremely convenient location for a price that was well within our budget. She was very skilled at negotiating with the owner and we ended up paying a lot less than we thought we would have to. I would recommend her HIGHLY. "
- Dr Raya Terry
"Betsy was professional, knowledgeable, help full and very organized. She was always available to answer questions and give direction and guidance. She has a knack in easing the process of selling the house. When we needed assistance in getting the property ready for the sale she was right there.
Everything went very smoothly."
- Jerry Fertel
"Betsy is a very expert, wise, practical, and sensitive agent. She was helpful in every possible way without unduly burdening us with details at such an emotional time. She had excellent marketing ideas for a property that had not been properly marketed in the past."
- Gene Abroms
"Betsy was immensely helpful to us navigating a new area and the housing market, as well as responsive to our many questions. We found Betsy to be detail oriented and kept us informed every step of the way, whether it was new houses to look at or the complex home buying process (mortgage, inspection, etc). She is an expert and savvy negotiator. I would certainly recommend Betsy to family and friends, knowing they would be in the best hands!"
- Rabbi Geri Newburge
"Betsy approached the sale of my house with total professionalism. She displayed a skillful command of what needed to be done starting the moment we first discussed listing my home for sale and immediately won my confidence. This woman knows her business and does it with calm efficiency. The long-standing relationships she has with local professionals made the selling process easy for me: A contractor she recommended made much needed repairs. The Haul-Away and Sweep-Out team she put me in contact with got the house ready for the house-closing inspection.
Thinking of selling your home? I recommend you contact Betsy Zeitlin! "
- Eileen Belmont
"Betsy is an excellent real estate agent. She was highly recommended to my by a friend and she has lived up to that recommendation in every possible way. She made the process so easy - more importantly, she listened to me, my needs, etc. I walked into our first meeting being greeted by a professional realtor, I walked out of my closing having made a friend!"
