Carol could not have been more wonderful in terms of helping us buy a house. Not only were we first-time home buyers, we were completing the transaction from Africa.(!!) Everyone said we were being unreasonable, but as a mother I really wanted to have a home set up for our children when we moved to the Dartmouth area. Especially after our year abroad. They are tired of moving!
Carol was so understanding, helpful and patient. When she takes you to see a house, she is frank, honest, and looks for things—bad and good—you might never see. She won’t talk you out of a bad idea house—everyone has different dreams!—but she will tell you exactly what the pros and cons will be. Then, during the buying process, she is amazingly thorough, organized, and informative. She also really stays in your corner in terms of pricing and negotiating. And she managed to do all of it while only able to reach us over Skype. We’d recommend Carol to any buyer, truly. She is a real pro.

Thank you for all your help and guidance throughout this process. We couldn’t find the superwoman thank you card that you deserve 🙂

Thank you so much for your help, patience, correspondence and everything you did for us in the past few months. We absolutely love our home and life in the Upper Valley so far. It’s been such a smooth transition and we know it’s partly because of your help as we were clueless first-time home buyers.
We greatly appreciate all of your help. We will refer others to you for home buying.
Thank you again!
Mike & Anna, W. Lebanon
My husband Neal & I were very particular with what we were looking for when we moved to the area and Matt was a fantastic realtor for us! He highlighted the places we would be interested in and shepherded us well through our first real estate purchase. However, the service did not end there. He came to mind recently as we are contemplating the sale of our house 6 years later (a planned move for work- we love the house!) as someone who could give unvarnished opinion on what we have done with the property and tips for the sale of the house. He took the time to come out on a Sunday afternoon and offer advice and refer us to some sellers agents in the area who would be a good match for us and our house. Absolutely the best in the Upper Valley!
Thanks, Sara, Neal & Genevieve – Croydon, NH
Mike & I want to thank you for all you have done to get us into a wonderful house. You went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you for always being available to answer questions and give advice. I still can’t believe we pulled it off!
We are so thankful to have had you help us through this process!

Carol & Matt,
We both wanted to thank you for the above and beyond service you both provided when we started this process, it was hard to believe we would ever be able to actually buy a home but your help every step of the way made it a reality.

Our final success in the hunt for our new home took three long years, three towns in three states… and just one lucky break. When we arrived in Hanover, facing Hanover’s unique housing market, we were daunted by what we saw…until we considered a buyers-only broker. Searching the ‘net for buyers-only brokers in Hanover took less than a second, and we landing on Housing Solutions Relocation. When we saw that they were right in town, instead of making a proper, first-time appointment, my 3-year-old and I popped in unannounced, and were immediately greeted warmly by one of the owners. Carol Robert sat us down, offered toys to our little one, and then preceded to take us under her wing. After graciously showing us every single house within our range and then some — never once pushing or suggesting we consider anything that we didn’t feel was perfect for our family — at last, WE DID IT! We absolutely adore our new home, and we know that this dream, for us, would never have happened had we not had Housing Solutions on our side.
All the best,
Kelley, Fred, and Darius – Hanover NH
This note of thanks is certainly long overdue but very well deserved. Your caring, patience and intuition were unparalleled and so very appreciated throughout this overwhelming process. While many go through a days work being content with just “getting the job done” you outdid yourself on a daily basis in getting us information, putting us at ease, and showing that you truly care. We are forever grateful for you caring and look forward to sharing our home with our friends, families and you and Matt (and Duke) as soon as life calms down a bit.
Many Many Thanks!
Sincerely, Jesup & Megan – W.Lebanon
Carol and Matt were superb in assisting me to buy my first home. They were wonderful in guiding me through the process start to finish and we are absolutely delighted with our purchase. I would highly recommend using Housing Solutions, trust me you won’t regret it.

Thank you (and Matt) again for all your help, patience and guidance. You guys are great and we will recommend Housing Solutions to anyone we know moving to Upper Valley!

I’m happy to add my endorsement of Matt and Housing Solutions Real Estate. Working with Matt has been one of the most flawless parts of our relocation to the Upper Valley. I have no negative feedback on the firm and cannot think of a “con.” In fact, we became increasingly frustrated with the realtor representing the sale of our home in WI because her efforts were so marginal compared with the attentive and thorough services we received from Housing Solutions Real Estate.
Matt’s extensive knowledge of the area (which includes real estate values, cultural offerings, commuting routes, and school districts) helped us weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the many small villages and towns in the region. I’ll probably continue to read his blog because it’s full of the little gems that can be hard to find in a rural area. He is a great listener and he remembered all of our preferences when helping select properties. Like Todd, I started by wanting to see everything but quickly came to trust Matt if he told us a property would not meet our needs. This was essential when we decided to make an offer on the foreclosed property that we purchased. Matt found us reputable companies to conduct the septic and house inspection under a very tight time frame.
Since closing on the house two weeks ago, I have continued to consult with Matt for recommendations on plumbers and contractors in the area.

Carol, We really liked dealing with you and although some of the real estate agents we have gone through are personal friends, I don’t think anybody provides as good a service to clients as you do.

I don’t know how I would have made it through this daunting process without your expertise! And, what’s more important, thank you for looking out for me and and advocating for me. I am very appreciative of all the hard work you did for me! With deep gratitude, Hillary
