Our family was incredibly fortunate to have had Amy Cowan represent us in a recent real estate transaction in Hingham. After meeting Amy through her non-profit organization, Friends of Hingham Harbor, we quickly learned that she was well respected and trusted by many members of our community. We were impressed with her professionalism and were thrilled that she agreed to help us find our next home.
Amy‘s guidance throughout our two-year search was exceptional and her evaluation of each property’s strengths, weaknesses, and value was proven correct time and time again. Amy also happens to be an incredible person-friendly, smart, reliable, patient, with a great sense of humor and impeccable judgment. It was apparent that sellers’ agents, homeowners, architects, etc. felt similarly and it was through these relationships that Amy was able to find us our dream home in a private sale.
We highly recommend Amy to all of our friends, and she will be our first call if we ever decide to move again.
I am pleased to recommend Amy Cowan as a Real Estate Agent. Because of her hard work, enthusiasm, and encouragement, my fiancée and I were able to secure a waterfront home against several other bidders in a hotly contested market. Amy guided us through our own doubts about the possibility of winning the house and stuck with us as competitive bids came in. She kept us advised and counseled us on how to win despite not making the highest dollar offer. Her creativity made us successful.
She went on then to help us stage our respective homes for sale contributing to our houses selling at or above the asking price, for cash, with no contingencies within one week from listing.
It’s an understatement that there is nothing more Amy could have done to make our experience with her better.
Amy is hands-down the most thoughtful realtor we have ever worked with. After my father-in-law passed away, she helped us with the very difficult task of moving my mother-in-law out of that home and into a new one. She went above and beyond in so many ways, helping us prepare for the sale by finding and booking assistance in the form of electricians, movers, cleaners, and landscapers. We benefitted greatly from her expertise and guidance, selling the house after the very first showing! As for the new home, she took the time to ask each family member what we were looking for so that she could curate a list of options for us, which she updated every day based on our feedback. We are grateful to have found the perfect new home that exceeded our expectations and came in below budget. Homes are personal, and Amy cares about people. I would recommend Amy and have! to anyone who needs help buying or selling a home.
I have been a real estate investor and broker for nearly all of my life. Amy has met and exceeded my expectations as a real estate expert not only in her attention to detail but her clear understanding of the transaction process and the dynamics of the interpersonal relationships involved. Listing and selling properties have increasingly from my vantage as ‘old school, become less and less about client relationships and more about dollars.
Amy is not that kind of agent. Her focus is on the needs and welfare of her clients. Her best practices and ethical approach give her clients the assurance they need to make usually the largest purchase of their lives with certainty and she provides the information and guidance they need for intelligent choices.
We can’t say enough good things about our experience working with Amy. She recently helped my family with a very complicated and sensitive buying situation after my father passed away. She not only helped us sell my parent's home in less than a week for over asking, but then guided us in the home buying process for my mother, finding her the perfect home for the next chapter in her life. Every step of the way she showed a level of sympathy and kindness that we will forever remember. She was attentive to our needs, honest with us about expectations in a tough buyers’ market, and yet always remained upbeat and encouraging. And her skills as a mediator and at times an amateur family therapist were always appreciated as she navigated the selling or buying process for two sets of families and a grieving parent. Amy has a client for life in our family!
Working with Amy was the best decision we made when beginning our search for a new home. She got to know us really well and understood exactly what we were looking for maybe even better than we did! Amy is incredibly knowledgeable about the local market in Hingham, was great about informing us about properties that were not yet on the market, and has many local connections that she used to investigate complex zoning and building questions that we had on properties. I would absolutely recommend her and wouldn’t dream of working with anyone else to purchase or sell a home in the area.
