What Clients Are Saying

Sarah Shipman was absolutely amazing to work with. I was nervous at first to purchase my first home but she made the process so easy and smooth. My boyfriend and I ended up with our dream home. Thank you Sarah!!

Jessica - Goshen

We had a wonderful experience buying a home with Sarah Shipman's guidance. She showed great initiative, patience, and empathy throughout, and really made us feel comfortable and cared for. We made our offer a few days before the Covid Pandemic set in, and so we were all learning how to proceed in this new environment, but Sarah handled it with grace and confidence. Happy to recommend her to any prospective buyers.

Jon - Easthampton

Sarah Shipman was fantastic to work with on my purchase. Took a bit for me to figure out exactly what I wanted and she was wonderfully patient till I figured it out!! Will recommend her to anyone who asks!!!

Lisa - Colrain

Very good advice, communication throughout from Sarah Shipman. Not the easiest deal to put together-- A Lease to Buy within a year. Done.

Rick - Northampton

I had a sweet little condo in Northampton. Sarah was really great and open about the whole experience. She is very knowledgable about the market in the valley. She planned an open house on a Thursday. Which I thought was a little unconventional. However, she knew the light in the apartment was best in the late afternoon. She was right! We had an offer over asking with in 4 hours of the open house!

Mandy - Northampton

Sarah was an absolute joy to work with. She made certain that she understood exactly what we were looking for, and she delivered. Sarah is smart, talented, and extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in the valley. We had worked with two other well-known realtors prior to Sarah, but there was simply no comparison. She's a true professional who really cares about her clients.

Gene & Mary - Amherst

Sarah was recommended to us by a friend who raved about her and thought Sarah would be perfect for us. How right she was! Immediately upon contact, Sarah asked what we were looking for in a house and, once we shared the requested information, she suggested we see a house that had just gone on the  market. We showed up with Sarah and the owner's realtor and knew instantly it was our dream house. Through Sarah's expertise in such matters, we were able to quickly negotiate what the seller needed to do to have the house ready and what we needed to do ourselves. The entire process was easy and as stress-free as possible under such circumstances. I would highly recommend Sarah Shipman to friends or anyone seeking a truly awesome local realtor.

Kent - Northampton

Sarah came to our first meeting fully prepared to sell our home. She gave us a honest evaluation of our home and also a few things we could do if we wanted to help sell it. She was always available for whatever questions we would have. Very enjoyable to work with!

Pat - Northampton

Sarah Shipman is a wonderful agent, and I could not recommend her more highly. She not only did her "job" in terms of due diligence, guidance/advice and effective negotiation, but went well beyond that, volunteering her own resources to solve problems and fill gaps that came along the way. I came into buying a home with real ambivalence towards real estate agents in general, and came out pleasantly shocked about how helpful Sarah turned out to be.

Paul - Williamsburg

Sarah was always very responsive and helped us through every step of the home buying process. She made sure we had all the information we needed and offered expert advise without ever being pushy or persuasive. We got the home we wanted at a great price, and we'll always be thankful for her helping us get here. We miss her now that it's over!

Mary - Easthampton

Sarah Shipman gave us great confidence in making our first home purchase. She was always available by text, call, or email and always quick to find any information we needed or make appointments to see properties. She even did FaceTime walk-throughs when we were out of town and couldn't make an open house. In the end, after just a few short weeks we found our perfect new home to start our family, a private little nook and a turn-key with ample space for our dogs. It was perfect.

Jordan - Northampton

Would encourage anyone selling a property in the Berkshires select Sarah Shipman as their Realtor. Over the space of 50 years of selling and buying properties, this selling of our property was an enjoyable experience. Sarah not only procured a selling price much above our expectations she also, through her professional diligence, made the sale proceed with ease.

Andrew & Dot - Becket

We are very glad to work with Sarah Shipman, Realtor. Definitely, we couldn’t have found a best one without her help. This was our first time buying a house in the US, so we asked many questions. She always responded quickly and gave us useful information to support all the process. It was clear and easy to understand. We were really comfortable. She is reliable, capable and thoroughly professional. We cannot thank you enough for her hard work, and look forward to the next opportunity.

Matsu & Yoi, Northampton

Sarah Shipman was great. Walked the 26 wooded acre property in sandals..respect.

Scott - Chesterfield

Sarah was an exemplary agent for us. She kept our back on negotiations, was totally un-pushy in manner, an effective communicator, and in the end bent over backwards to help us resolve final issues. Way out of the line of duty! We were first time homebuyers and nervous about dealing with agents, but this turned out about as positively as we could have hoped. We recommend her highly.

Julia - Williamsburg

Sarah is truly 100% for her client (I was a buyer in this case). She was very proactive, creative, firm in negotiations, super clear and responsive in all communications. She helped us to lay out a strategy for concessions based on our home inspection that resulted in a a $10,000 drop in home price. She helped us navigate through several lenders because our farm property had some tricky elements to it. She was a strong negotiator around two necessary upgrades to the home. Her suggestions for legal, lending, and inspection resources were spot on, and each very competent. She is straightforward, truthful, and a good communicator - yet always keeps the tone pleasant. I can't recommend her highly enough.

George - Williamsburg

Sarah Shipman went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor. She helped us through every step of the process of buying our new home; from choosing a bank to work with on our mortgage, to finding a great home inspector... she even helped us move furniture in to the house! I highly recommend Sarah when purchasing a house. We couldn't imagine a better realtor.

Brian - Greenfield

Sarah Shipman is a wonderful agent, and I could not recommend her more highly. She not only did her "job" in terms of due diligence, guidance/advice and effective negotiation, but went well beyond that, volunteering her own resources to solve problems and fill gaps that came along the way. I came into buying a home with real ambivalence towards real estate agents in general, and came out pleasantly shocked about how helpful Sarah turned out to be.

Paul - Williamsburg

Our realtor, Sarah Shipman was nothing short of fantastic in this whole transaction. She helped us deal with an incompetent banker, and many other challenges along the way. The deal would not have been closed without her willingness to go above and beyond.

Scott - Northampton

Sarah Shipman is a true professional. It was a pleasure working with her. We are new to the area and she showed the area telling us about many appealing sites. Because she listened to our needs, she was spot on. Sarah was there for us at every turn of the buying process. We can't recommended her enough!
