Business Philosophy

My goal is to raise the bar and set a new standard for customer service. I answer the phone when you call me, not an assistant. I usually answer the phone by the second ring, if not I return all calls promptly, not the end of the day. The same applies to e-mail. You have access to my team of professionals that I have carefully assembled to help make your transaction flow smoothly. I believe constant communication is what the client deserves and I am available 24/7 by phone or e-mail.  I understand my clients want to be informed in a timely manner, that is why I am committed to delivering their information to them as I get it.  I'll even call you to let you know we are still waiting for an answer.  I know an uninformed client is an unhappy client.  Ask me for my long list of references.

Client Testimonials

"The thing we were most impressed with Betsy was her ability to be far more than a realtor; she was a realtor turned friend that made our home buying experience truly enjoyable.  We almost feel bad for anyone that has to buy a home without Betsy's proficiency and true professionalism."- Kim and Mike Falana

"Betsy certainly grants her clients the utmost attention.  She is in constant communication with us.  Despite her demanding schedule, emails and phone calls are returned within minutes.  In a world in which it is common to complain and criticize, I feel compelled to write a letter honoring one of your strongest sales associates."-Stacey Lopez

"From day one, we knew we had selected the right person who had keen interest in their clients needs rather than interest in selling a home.  Betsy is a person who is patient, kind, caring and committed!  I'd recommend Betsy Purtell to anyone I know and don't know, as "the" person to call."-Eric Darden

"Without Betsy's enthusiam and perseverance, I would probably still be looking for a home. She remained easy going, helpful and always knowledgeable about the house-buying process.  Any time I tried to get in touch with her, I had no problems and always received a quick response.  I highly recommend Betsy to anyone who is looking for a friendly, reliable and highly motivated real estate agent."-George Porto

"Betsy is always professional and courteous,listens to your needs, has a sound understanding of real estate valuation, and possesses expert knowledge in the overall real estate market.Betsy has my utmost respect as a realtor, and as a person, and I would highly recommend her services."-Teryl Eisenberg

"We're happy to recommend your services to potential clients as you handled the sale of my house very professionally and expeditiously. You were extremely well informed, gave us great advice, guided us through a smooth closing and the house sold at a great price. I don't know what more we could have wanted."-Jeremy Oakes

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
