What They’re Saying...
20 years after we totally renovated our house in Jamestown, it was finally time to sell. Living in a house happily and keeping it maintained that long, we were surprised at some of the hurdles we would face. Listing with Nancy Cresser was a blessing. Nancy was a partner throughout the process. She was always creative during negotiations. After the inspections, we needed some repairs and system upgrades and Nancy was able to find and schedule the necessary contractors to do the work while we were away. What a relief. I would happily list my house with Nancy and Lila Delman again.Bruce Craven; Jamestown, RI
We recently purchased a house on Jamestown with Nancy Cresser as our agent. We've previously purchased homes in Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., but this was the best home purchasing experience by far. Nancy was exceptional to work with. She regularly stayed in touch, provided important research on comparables, was always on top of next steps, and provided helpful, but not pushy, reminders. She shared her knowledge of the local and state housing market and helped us identify options for mortgages, contractors for help with estimates, inspectors, etc. Two things were most important to us: first she is a good critical thinker in that she was very helpful in thinking through the pros and cons of various options; second she is easygoing and calm, which was very important in grounding us and helping us deal with stressful decisions. We will definitely return to her when we are next in a buy or sell situation.Mary Giffin; 140 Highland Drive Jamestown, RI
I'm writing to recommend Nancy Cresser to anyone looking for great real estate representation. In a short couple of months Nancy found the house we had been unsuccessfully searching for for 3 years. By her combination of creativity, tenacity, and sensitivity, she "created" an opportunity that we had been unable to find. In the neighborhood we needed to be in, houses very seldom come on the market. After showing us all the options already on the market (a market she knows inside and out) Nancy tactfully approached several owners who were not on the market to inquire about the possibility of selling. Then with great tact and sensitivity she brokered a deal that eased the anxieties of the longtime owner, meeting both our needs and requirements, as well as that of the owner. Throughout the process she was efficient, timely, supportive, and fun. In the age of Zillow and Realtor.com it may seem that a realtor is unnecessary. Our great experience with Nancy suggest that's just not true. I enthusiastically recommend Nancy to anyone buying or selling a home.Don Powers, 16 Plymouth Road Jamestown, RI
Nancy Cresser is a consummate professional: thorough, smart, friendly, and full of excellent advice. She helped negotiate a great deal on a house that I coveted in an up-and-coming historic neighborhood, and she provided helpful guidance around all-related closing activities. What's more, she continues to be excellent at recommending professionals in the field to help with any related upkeep issue that may arise.Peter Covino; Providence, RI
Nancy found us the perfect house on Jamestown island and helped us "win" the property in a competitive bidding situation while we were living in Pennsylvania, but wanting a home specifically in Jamestown. She navigated us through the inspection and contracting process, and recommended receptive vendors to expedite the closing process. She even suggested local attorneys - we were able to move the settlement date forward and had smoothest closing ever.Suzanne G.; Jamestown, RI
We had such a good experience working with Nancy Cresser when we bought our first house that we went straight to her several years later when we were looking for the perfect place to call home once our baby was born. She listened to everything we said we wanted in a house and actively shared options and talked through all of them with us, making us feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. She represented our interests very well and always advised us in a way that was both warm and clear. Nancy's high level of professionalism and expertise are major assets, but even more than that, she has an amazing knack and passion for matching people with homes.Jillian & Joe Belanger; Providence, RI
We put my mother’s waterfront home in Wickford on the market after she passed away. After several months, the best offer we received was an amount we couldn’t consider, even in a down market. Then, Nancy Cresser got involved as our realtor and within thirty days, the home was under contract and sold for almost a third more, exactly what we wanted! …Guess who we will call the next time we need a realtor?Penny & Howie Matthews; Wickford, RI
