Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Janet and broker-partner Margaret are the best! We confined our house search to Portsmouth and New Castle--their specialties. They really know these markets--both are extremely well connected. They quickly sized us up and directed us to properties that suited our needs and tastes. We wasted no time. All the viewings were worthwhile. Our agents' offered very frank, detailed advice--advice that was on target every time. After three two-hour tours--about 10 homes in all--we found the perfect home for us in Portsmouth's South End. Janet skillfully handled all the negotiations for us. Margaret covered the closing with us--the smoothest closing we have ever experienced. My wife and I have been involved in a lot of real estate transactions in our lifetimes. As an attorney with 35 years experience, I have also done a lot of real estate transactional work. We can honestly say that Janet and Margaret are two of the best real estate professionals we have ever known. They earned our highest recommendation!
It's obvious that Margaret and Janet know the market, the people in the industry, the comps and the trends. But when they really added value to our situation was when they looked out for our best interests during the buy/sell process and leading up to the closing. For example, they inserted language in the P&S to protect our interest, they advised us how to best handle certain concessions the other side requested, and they helped coordinate various details we needed to close. They always replied to questions immediately, even if it meant they had to go find the correct answers. I felt like they really had our best interests in mind every step of the way. They went way over and above just listing the home - they got it sold.
Two professional dynamic women who had a detailed multi- week plan and executed it with perfection. They helped stage the house, hired a professional photographer to take pictures and immediately scheduled multiple showings. They provided excellent feedback to me and sold the house within a week. It was a pleasure to work with them and I recommend them without any reservations
Emil was absolutely amazing. He got us into see a home in Portsmouth before it was even listed! Because of that we were the first to put an offer in which was helpful given the incredibly competitive market in the city! We love our new home and we are so greatful Emil was there to help every step of the way with just a quick text or call. He's extremely knowledgeable, prompt and easy to work with. There is no one else you should have help you find your dream home!
Emil was amazing...the best real estate experience I ever had! He listed (and sold) my home and found me a new home quite quickly! The collaboration with him was exceptional: quick responses to emails/texts, attention to details, professional and personal. I could not asked asked for a better experience. I will recommend Emil to anyone looking to sell or buy in the Seacoast area.
Amy was absolutely CRUCIAL to our home buying process. She was incredibly knowledgeable, down to earth and approachable, all of which we appreciated as first time home buyers navigating the choppy waters of the real estate market. I have been recommending Amy to all of my friends and family ever since, and plan on retaining her for all of our real estate needs. A+++++
Amy was terrific! She helped guide my wife and I through every step of selling our home and buying a new one. She was always available when we had questions and handled every bump in the road quickly and professionally. I would absolutely work with her again!
Based on my personal and business experience, whether buying or selling, “Great Island Realty” is the Seacoast’s premier real estate agency. Their determination and efforts in marketing a unique property for us, all the way to a successful closing, was more than admirable. I can say unequivocally that no one will ever regret allying with Margaret and Janet for their real estate acumen, professionalism, and success rate.

"Janet & Margaret,
Thanks for all your help. As always you went out of your way to help protect our interests. You're the best real estate team in NH!"
"While we were just looking at the market in New Castle with no intention to buy; Janet and Margaret recognized that this was not just another typical sale. They are a relationship oriented team. They both made it a point to take time with us, understood our questions and process, and the need for coordination of any pre-closing activities. They are proactive, responsive and driven. It would not have been possible to manage the short window of opportunity that existed without providing outstanding service. Being local, their willingness to be available to us at any time, providing the "right type of house", and thoughtfully making difficult turnaround times happen made the process seamless. There is clearly great pride and joy in what they do. Combine their knowledge and experience with great senses of humor, and we closed a sale and at the same time acquired a lasting friendship."
