Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:

Over the past two years as co-project manager for the redevelopment of the Salem District CourtHouse Building in Salem, Massachusetts, I have had the distinct pleasure of working alongside MerryFox Realty. Merry Fox Realty has provided marketing and brokerage pre-planning services as well as general support to our permitting and approval process for this project.

MerryFox Realty consistently delivers outstanding performance to its customers and clients placing  it in the top position amongst real estate broker’s on the North Shore of Boston.

Dan Fox’s prior investment banking background in combination with Betsy Merry’s marketing prowess is a powerful one two punch as leaders of this firm. Dan and Betsy have consistently delivered on their commitments to our project and as a consequence we expect to obtain Planning Board approvals at our next meeting of the Salem Planning Board.

After working with the top Commercial Brokers in Boston, I have found the MerryFox Team to have the most expertise  on mixed use and commercial developments.

I give Merry Fox my highest reference without qualifications for their professional and customer service.

Don't make the same mistake I did, hiring the wrong agent the first time. My condo was on the market and under agreement twice in six months, but both fell through. Hired Dan Fox, he instantly recognized the problems in the unit stalling the process. Dan sent in an interior decorator, who made her recommendations and I followed them. After changing some colors, lighting and some simple, inexpensive staging my unit sold in a week to a great young couple who absolutely love the unit. Dan is a very smart, professional Agent. Thanks again Dan

We listed our home in Salem with Betsy Merry on a Tuesday.  She held an open house that weekend and delivered two qualified offers, one over the asking price, in five days.  Betsy knows the market.  The sale price was well beyond our expectations.  Betsy was thorough, responsive, friendly, and professional throughout the process.  She gave us good advice, kept a close eye on details, and supported us in preparing for the closing.  The entire experience was flawless, and so we extend since thanks and appreciation to Betsy and the team at Merry Fox Realty for their wisdom and expertise.



Betsy Merry is worth her weight in gold! In a mere 7 days on the market, Betsy got us 8 offers for our house. The offer we accepted was more than $100,000 over our asking price. With Betsy in command, we were able to close in just five weeks. We are sure that without Betsy our results would not have been so amazing.

When we made the decision to sell our house, we interviewed several realtors. We chose Betsy because of her clear love for Salem and her extensive knowledge of the local real estate market. She made us feel confident and secure throughout the process. From Day One, Betsy took care of every detail. She sent a professional designer to help us stage the house. Her photographer was exceptionally talented, and he used a drone to get phenomenal photographs of our house and its seaside setting. Betsy even arranged for a certified expert to come and replace our outdated smoke detectors.

Betsy's appearance is always professional and portrays competence; what you see with Betsy is what you get. Her experience was invaluable, her instincts were flawless, and her expertise was obvious. We highly recommend her!

Dan’s intuition and ability to streamline the buying and selling process is very refreshing. His approach helped me save time, money, and my sanity.

Dan Fox is simply the best person for the job.  We wanted to sell our condo in downtown Salem, and let's be honest the best choice in that market is MerryFox Realty.  Buying or selling property can be daunting for anyone, but not so if you have a professional like Dan Fox at your side. He successfully navigated selling our condominium.  You can trust him and know that he is working in your best interests at every point in the process.  Dan is a master at handling any situation that might arise, like a water heater blowing in the middle of the night on the day of your first open house, or an anxious client, like me, that needed a little hand holding.  He is simply the best.   

After we found ourselves soon to be homeless, Dan helped us buy our dream home with such professionalism and genuine care for our family, that I would happily sing his praises to anyone. So, here I am singing at the top of my lungs, likely off key, Dan Fox is a rare find, competent, capable and dedicated to his clients. 

I have known Dan Fox from the time I first started shopping for a Salem condo in 2004. He always impressed me as a knowledgeable, quick-thinking and efficient professional. So when it came time to sell the condo in late 2015, calling Dan was a no-brainer.

Just weeks after the initial listing went live, my husband and I received an offer. Unfortunately, this fell through as we discovered some repairs that needed fixing. Thanks to Dan and his 'Rolodex' of contacts, we were able to complete these fixes affordably, correctly, and quickly.  We listed again and closed a month later, at above asking price.

There is no question in my mind who to call to sell a home. Thank you Dan!

We recently moved cross country and left our condo in the care of Betsy Merry to sell. She was so helpful and professional, and even got someone to come in and paint and do small repairs while we were long distance. As stressful as making a big move can be, Betsy made the process as smooth and painless as possible for us! Thank you Betsy and MerryFox Realty!  

If you need a realtor, Betsy Merry is the person for you. Without her hard, dedicated work, I can’t imagine I would have sold my house in Salem, Massachusetts as quickly as I did or for the price I got. Like so many houses in New England, mine was old and charming, and needed much work before I could list it. This was Betsy’s first strength. Not only did she know what items would be the most cost efficient to address, she also referred excellent craft and repair people who quoted fair prices and did excellent, timely work on my house. When it was ready to list, Betsy had a photographer come who made beautiful stills as well as a video, witch were both flattering yet honest depictions of the house, something that is important in establishing trust. By that I mean stills or videos that have been touched up to camouflage or disguise problem areas in the property will turn off buyers when they see it for themselves, and they will not forget the listing realtor who wasted their time. When I got a valid offer on my house, Betsy went into overdrive to close the deal, successfully navigating the very tricky waters of home inspection. The buyer had a long list of items they either wanted addressed at my expense or their estimate to do so taken off the sale price. No one knows Salem better than Betsy, and one of the ways that transfers into her effectiveness is in her personal relationships with the crafts and trade people who work there. With the aid of these people, she cut through every frivolous item based their honest, sensible recommendations, saving me thousands of dollars and moving the sale to its successful conclusion. I recommend her without reservation and will always be thankful to Betsy for all she did in seeing me on my way to the next part of my life.

Dear Betsy:  It has been several months since you saved me by working so hard to successfully sale my house. I want you to know that I think of you every day for all that you did for me - and for a house I loved for so many years. Blessings for you and yours.
