Why Work With Us?

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

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.

Dear Betsy:

There are not enough words to properly convey my thanks to you. After years of studying the Salem market, I knew that I needed someone special to help me – Someone who knew the ins and the outs and could surprise me with something I hadn’t   studied. In one visit, you did that.The second I saw 7 Howard St., Unit 5, I knew I had found my home.

Thank you for your expertise, positivity and professionalism. Not only do I view you as a realtor, but now I view you as a neighbor and as a friend.

Sincerest thanks and congratulations on all of your professional accomplishments.

When we decided to sell our home on Federal Street in Salem, we thought of Betsy Merry as the only broker for us. We were amazed at the level of dedication and commitment that she brought to the task of selling our home in a difficult market. The sale of our house was complicated by a number of factors and challenges which could not have been anticipated. Throughout the process, Betsy's enthusiasm, support, and encouragement were a constant. Our association with Betsy during the sale of our home was very satisfying, and we can without reservation endorse Betsy's professionalism and dedication.

I am very grateful to Betsy Merry for helping me sell my mother's home. Her knowledge and advice were instrumental in effecting the sale, and I shall always be appreciative of her personal and friendly service as well as her dedication on our behalf.

Betsy Merry was responsible for the successful marketing of two condominium projects on behalf of the of the trustees of the Stephen Phillips Memorial Scholarship Fund. Betsy's initial effort on behalf of the Phillips Office was the marketing of a the three unit Phillips Warren Condominium off Warren Street in Salem. Betsy's insights and professionalism were invaluable to throughout the process, and as a result of her keen sense of marketing and pricing, all three units sold within 90 days. The trustees then availed themselves of Betsy's services in marketing the more complicated seventeen unit Orne Square Condominium. Her effort on our behalf was extraordinary, as well as her ability to work with new buyers as well as existing tenants. Alas, there are no more real estate projects for the Phillips Office, but if there were, we would pick Betsy Merry.

Dan's attention to detail, follow through, commitment to excellence and work ethic place him in a class all by himself. We had an original comp done by another realtor on our condo for $20k less than what Dan thought it could sell for. Well, Dan was right. In a market where the average days on market was 180+ Dan was able to sell our condo in less than 90 days while also getting the price we wanted for it. The selling price was still higher than the original comp provided by the realtor. This is why we are requesting Dan's services again to purchase a house. If you need a realtor and one that you can trust to work in your best interest Dan is the realtor for the job. The only way for you to ensure you receive the best in a realtor is to go out and get the best. For these reasons and many more we give Dan our highest recommendation and do so without reservation.
