Heidi Boedecker-Franconia:

Heidi always got back to me, kept me posted on everything and was very patient with me! Couldn’t have asked for a better person to deal with, thanks so much. CC (Christina Chamberlain)

Heidi Boedecker is not only extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and the New Hampshire area, she made my husband and I feel welcomed to the state after relocating. It is a little frightening leaving family and friends, but moving to New Hampshire with the welcoming from this agent and agency was like a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU HEIDI AND COLDWELL BANKER. W & SC (William & Stacey Connor)

Heidi was always available to answer questions. She was very flexible with scheduling appointments at different times or short notice. IP & SD (Ivy Pearson & Steven Deveau)

Heidi was very proactive and great to work with. Her hard work made the closing happen. GT (Greg Thomson)

Heidi is straightforward and efficient. We appreciated this from the beginning to end of our home buying process. DW (Dana Weekes)

Heidi was very helpful and made the process so much easier as a first time home buyer. DH (Derek Hurrell)


Herbie Bartlett - Franconia:

Herbie was very attentive, fast to answer any questions and could be reached at all hours of the day for anything we needed. She was always available and made time in her schedule to show us the houses we wanted to look at. She was very knowledgeable about the home buying process and of the area/homes we were looking at. RP (Ryan Presby)


Ken Bolland - Franconia:

Ken was very helpful! With his knowledge of building he helped us find what we needed. He was always available when we needed him, even if several times a week. PC (Paula Cohen)

Ken found me exactly what I was looking for. He did a superb job! He stayed in contact with me, was persistent and eventually I found something. B C-S (Brenda Corliss-Simon)

Ken Bolland found my dream home for me which exceeds what I wanted in a home and property. He was aware that I fish and now I live on waterfront property on the Israel River. He also knew that I wanted to have my own horse in my own back yard and this property is perfect for that too. I am very grateful to Ken Bolland at Coldwell Banker LinWood in New Hampshire. LAJ (Lorena Anne Johnson)

Ken was very easy to work with. He was very personable and accommodating. I would highly recommend him. KW (Katelyn White)

Ken is a great guy. He knew what I was looking for and was very helpful finding the right home. He seems like a regular blue collar working guy like myself, so it made it easy to work with and the understanding was there. SO (Sean O’Connor)

I would highly recommend Ken as a real estate agent. He was helpful with the entire process. He understood my needs and what I was looking for in a house, readily available, and knowledgeable of the structural and maintenance aspect of a home. Ken is a pleasure to work with. EO (Elizabeth O’Dwyer)



Pauline Palmer - Franconia:

Pauline was a joy to work with! D & BB (Doug & Barbara Beckwith)

Am very happy with Pauline’s performance with regards to my purchase. SB (Steve Burtchell)


 

Carleen Quinn - Franconia:

Easy going, related to my particular place in life, very patient. NG (Nancy Goebel)

Carleen was referred to us by friends. She was great throughout the transaction and very easy to talk to. LD (Lori DeGregorio)

Carleen was very personable and her local knowledge was very helpful. We also appreciate that she rearranged her schedule to accommodate ours. BD (Bob D)

 


Ruth Hamilton - Littleton:

Ruth was always available when I needed her. She could answer my questions or knew someone who could. Very helpful with the whole process. S & LA (Scott & Linda Allen)

Ruth was awesome. We are from Massachusetts and she always found time for us and kept us updated on properties we looked at or she thought we would be interested in. We were the third family member to have Ruth. She is the best. SC (Sue Consoletti)

Ruth was very quick to respond to questions and was very helpful in the whole process. I appreciate the patience over the months of home seeking. JI (James Isherman)

Ruth was extremely friendly and personable. When dealing with people you always trust your gut instinct. With Ruth you knew from the minute you met her that you were dealing with someone of the utmost honesty and integrity. This was very important to us. GS (Gregory Sevinsky)

Ruth is very professional in her job. She has great resources, was always available for questions, concerns and recommendations. It was a pleasure working with her on a professional level. She explained each process clearly and she was a great help locating an appraisal in the northern area as our mortgage company was having difficulty finding one. Overall, our experience was great and would recommend Ruth and this company for real estate needs. B B-K (Betsy Belanger-Krasucki)

It was difficult to only select three attributes of working with Ruth when I was reviewing real estate for an investment in New Hampshire. She was well planned, always on time, considerate of m y needs, realistic of my price range, she was thorough when answering any questions concerning a property. She was very efficient in preparing multiple properties to review within a limited time frame. A well planned, well scheduled and professionally informed broker. I would HIGHLY recommend her as an agent to represent you, she is also personable and you would enjoy the time you spend looking at properties with her. NG (Nancy Griswold)



Clif Muller - Littleton:

Clif was a great person to work with. He was very kind, honest and always available, and made my first time buying experience very simple and stress free! I would recommend him to anyone! SI (Shelby Ingerson)

Clif is a wonderful agent. We always received quick responses to our questions and with our difficult schedules he was always able to set up showings and meet with us. We will recommend Clif to anyone looking to buy a home. RM (Dr. Richard Merrick)

I have purchased and sold several properties with Clif, he always helps solve any problems that arise and is always available, which helps make a deal happen quickly, which is the way I like to do business. For this reason I have referred him to several friends all of which he made the sales for them. SM (Steve Messina)


 

Kris Covey - Littleton:

Kris was able to support me and this transaction even though I was only available locally for the initial offer. Since then we’ve worked together with me being in San Diego and Kris of course in Littleton. She’s been proactive in supporting me through all the steps along the way and helped me communicate my concerns and requests to the owners as they came up. CC (Curt Criss)

I loved that Kris would respond to questions promptly, even at night or over the weekends. She also did a great job helping us understand some of the stranger things involved in our transaction, such as property line adjustments done in the past. EJ (Erik Johnson)

Kris was our first experience with a realtor in New Hampshire. She presented herself very well with helped us immensely. Showed us properties she represented. And called other agents to get access to other homes to look at. Took her time and was very patient with us. Since we had no idea what we wanted. But we have a good idea, what we want now and where to go. Which we are very grateful for. Captgard (Zillow review)

Kris always returns my phone calls promptly with the information I requested even when I havent spoken with her in months. Great service. DO (David Ovens)



Lori Santora - Littleton:

Lori was always willing to help – coached us on steps to follow for the best results with finding and closing on the property. Lori was very accommodating and scheduled as many prospects as possible in the same locations. M & SF (Mike & Susan Figg)

Over the years we've bought and sold about 15 properties in the Littleton area. I've worked with a lot of Realtors. Lori was by far superior to anyone I've ever dealt with. I bought over 100 properties in my lifetime and nobody has ever explained the whole contract like she can. Explaining liability, explaining everything. She went above and beyond several times, meeting people on the property in Mountain Lakes on my behalf. Coldwell Banker should be very lucky to have an agent with such dedication and commitment to her job and her clients. I will always use her from this point on. RM (Robert Mantia)

Lori went above and beyond to guide us through the house buying process. As a representative of the buyer and seller, Lori was professional and ethical. I recommend Lori for anyone looking in the area, and would choose her again if needed. CO (Colby O’Rourke)

Lori was a joy to work with, always got back to me with my many questions, took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home. Would recommend Lori highly. lscunning (Zillow review)


 

Cindy Sparks - Littleton:

Cindy Sparks is very professional. She listens to the customer’s needs and works together with them. She quickly replies to questions by text, phone and email. No question is silly. Cindy makes the process enjoyable. We will certainly be using her as our agent again. CH (Colette Haywood)

Cindy did a great job of guiding us throughout the process and was very accommodating. The first time we met her she organized an entire day to view 10 properties with us. She was always accessible to answer questions and assisted with setting up our inspection as well as references for home insurance, septic inspection and roofers. She assisted us with staying on top of our lender to make sure our closing came together on time. She is very knowledgeable, a great active listender and always had our best interest at heart. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the area. NS & CH (Nicole Sullivan & Christine Hopkins)

Without Cindy’s foresight and clever ideas we never would have gotten our house. She’s a fantastic agent! PT (Philip Tuite)

Cindy was great. She was very helpful through the entire process. I feel like we have made a new friend in the Littleton area by working and getting to know Cindy. B & LM (Brian & Lisa Manter)

Cindy was always available via various platforms of communication. She was constantly working to make sure we were getting the best deal and house for us. I was impressed with the amount of work she took off my plate while making sure I was still informed and understood what she was doing.
BJ (Brent Johnson)

We had the privilege to work with Cindy during the selling and buying process of our home(s). We quickly learned how critical it was to have an agent that was hard working, professional, efficient, patient and have a good working knowledge of the current housing market. Cindy in our opinion possesses all of these character traits and many more. Cindy went above and beyond in every aspect of a realtor’s job description. We have the upmost respect for Cindy and her work ethic exceeds all standards. We would highly recommend Cindy Sparks to represent your family in the buying and selling of a home. J & NS (Jesse & Nicole Sherrill)



Trisha Cross - Littleton:

Listened well to our needs and was very respectful of our time. We will be listing a piece of property with your firm soon. GS (Gary Spooner)

Trisha is very down to earth. Very easy to communicate with. Would show us houses on weekends. I will use her in the future. S & JM (Scott & Jennifer MacKay)

Trisha was available at any time. She went above and beyond to keep us informed. She kept the lines of communication open between the sellers and us. I credit her for our being here. As long as you have associates like Trisha Cross, you do not need to improve. SY (Stephen Yancey)

Of all the responses I received from multiple realtors, Trisha Cross was the only realtor who spent time answering all my questions patiently (on her day off). She went out of her way to return all texts, emails and phone calls. She has earned my trust and loyalty. When I get things in order here in Florida, she will be my only phone call to find the right forever home for us. Trisha was more than willing to meet with us when we take our vacation in March to go over everything so we won't have any surprises. She even informed us regarding the different heating sources and explained the pros and cons of each one. God Bless. S & RS (Scott and Rosemarie Stevens)



Arlie Vandenbroek - Littleton:

Arlie was always positive and supportive and kept in touch with us regularly. She always returned calls promptly. It is not an exaggeration to say we loved working with her. VC (Vickie Chase)

We used Arlie as our realtor moving to NH from the Midwest. Arlie made us feel so comfortable immediately!! She not only gave us a friendly welcome to the Northeast (helping us navigate places to visit in the area, helping us find a vet, etc), she was also so committed to helping our family find the right fit in a home! She found us an amazing rental property and then a wonderful home to purchase. Arlie is so dedicated, so caring, so genuine!! Arlie looks out for the best interest of her clients and is up front and honest! She comes with our very high recommendation!!! AD (Angie Delaney)

Over the past several months we started working with Arlie to buy our first home. She takes the time to get to know you and what you are looking for in a home. She does not waste your time with homes that are not aligned with your taste but will show any home to you that you want. It was a pleasure working with Arlie and highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell your home! We will be working with her again in the future! BP (Ben Pasquino)

Arlie is very professional. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She is right there to answer any questions. She does not leave you without an answer. Very patient and I would strongly recommend her to anybody. She is still helping even after house has closed. Now if that is not dedication I do not know what is. MR (Michael Riding)

Arlie was extremely helpful and patient throughout our whole process. We have been looking for just the right place for a while and when our current house came up Arlie informed us immediately. She knew what we wanted and where. She was professional and knowledgeable. Easy to work with and kept an upbeat tempo throughout. Love her. whosingloy (Realtor.com recommendation)

Arlie is one-in-a-million. She has the energy and organization to truly watch the market for you, to invest in her clients and get a sense of exactly what they're looking for and then to find the house that's perfect for you. She goes above and beyond what she's paid for (you can tell she loves her job!) she quite literally drove a form down to my work office for me to sign, and then proceeded to drive the same form to our apartment so my husband could sign it as well! She's really got a gift for this field, and we recommend her with enthusiasm. If you're looking to buy or sell a home, call her, it'll be the best decision you could make for yourselves during the real estate process. AC (Amanda Colby)



John Chamberlain - Lincoln:

John is always outstanding. Knowledgeable, friendly, thorough, creative with ideas, etc. Always enjoy working with John. T & JG (Terri & Joe Gormley)

This is my second time dealing with John. I wouldn’t deal with anyone else! Thank you all so very much. KH (Kevin Harris)

We used John to purchase a condo and he has been great! He was very responsive to questions and really helped us find what we were looking for. He even continues to be very helpful after the sale as we get the place set up to our liking. We will definitely use him again and would highly recommend him. ejspics (Zillow review)

Out of the gate John was responsive, and really listened to your needs and desires in a property. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market. He shared his knowledge willingly, the positive and negative of the different properties we selected to view. He was patient when financing was difficult and understanding. Most of all we felt that he really wanted what was best for his buyer and seller his integrity shines through with every phone call email and meeting. I would highly recommend John. K & RG (Kristen & Rick Godin)

John is a true professional. He showed us many condos in Lincoln prior to making our purchase. He promptly returned calls and was happy to get us answers to all our inquiries. He is very familiar with the Lincoln Woodstock area and we would highly recommend that anyone looking to make a purchase in the White Mountains contact John. pnolanlaw (Zillow review)

It was an absolute pleasure working with John during the recent purchase of our new condo in Lincoln, NH. Although John represented the seller of the condo we ended up buying, I found him to be extremely helpful to us (the buyers) throughout the entire process. John has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the local real estate market, and we found his guidance and advice along the way to be invaluable. In many respects, John went above and beyond what we would expect from a real estate broker. John was always responsive to our questions and needs along the way, and would often help us out with the little details. A true professional. We would highly recommend John to others who are looking to buy or sell in NH. J & K (Jeff & Krista – Zillow review)



Tony Drapeau - Lincoln:

Tony was pretty relaxed about the process, showing us different styles to help us hone in on exactly what was best for us. NA (Norman Ashkenas)

Tony would do whatever it takes! It was a pleasure working with him and we’d be happy to do so again. M & LG (Matt & Lisa Grosshandler)


 

Bob Matheson - Lincoln:

Just outstanding from start to finish… What can I say? JB (John Bennett)

Bob was great. Always promptly returned phone calls and got answers for us quickly. Our purchase was a long process, and he kept everything on track the whole time. JP (John Payne)

We had a great experience with Bob. He really did a great job educating us on the real estate landscape in the Lincoln area. He was well organized and very accommodating to our odd schedules. We look forward to working with him again. chesterh1 (Zillow review)



Tom Tremblay - Lincoln:

Tom is everything you would want in a real estate broker; experience and exceptional knowledge of the areas he serves, unquestionable integrity and a timely response to all your needs. We worked with Tom to purchase a property in 1985, and he subsequently sold it for us in 2004. In 2011 we contacted Tom again and he assisted us with the purchase of another home. Not surprisingly, Tom provided the same level of service and advice we had become accustomed to during our prior two transactions. He deserves at least a 5 star rating, and I am pleased to give him my unconditional recommendation for his exemplary work. A true professional in his field. jls48 (Zillow review)

Following are a couple Reviews that reference a purchase and sale for inclusion on the website at your discretion:

Tom's local expertise, knowledge of the area and strong relationships with other local Brokers provided invaluable assistance with my projects. Together we purchased a parcel of land, sub-divided that land into 3 lots. Sold two of those lots and built a home on the third. He was then instrumental in offering advice and getting that home sold in under 6 weeks. zuser20140322110253944 (Zillow review)

We worked with Tom and his agency for 12 years, from purchase to rental to sale of our home. Tom has an exceptional knowledge of the Lincoln-Woodstock markets and was great to work with over the years. He always went the extra mile in providing service which was extremely important to us as second home owners. When we got to the point of selling our home, I went directly to Tom as I felt no need to interview other brokers (of whom I know many in the area) and would highly recommend Tom anyone looking for a realtor in this region. rjs717 (Zillow review)
