We were looking for a new home and relocating from out of state during Covid, so we needed to find someone who is trustworthy, transparent, responsive, and an excellent communicator. Upon our first phone conversation with Molly, her warmth and professionalism came through and we knew it would be a good fit. Molly came to each showing, prompt and prepared. She shared her knowledge about each home and neighborhood with ease. She seemed to intuitively know the right balance of guiding us through homes and giving us space to discuss on our own- even taking it upon herself to engage our young daughters, giggling and chatting so my husband and I could talk through options. Molly was able to find us a home that had been off-market and walked us through an incredibly detailed Facetime tour because we had returned to our home state. We ended up purchasing a home through Molly, sight unseen, which speaks to level of trust we were able to place in her, plus her ability navigate all the nuances of purchasing a home during Covid. After we moved in, I reached out to Molly several times for local advice/ recommendations. She was just as helpful and prompt as she was during our home buying experience. We have been in our home for 6 months now and absolutely love it and are so grateful for Molly and the ease she brought to our home buying experience!
Upon listening to our land line phone messages many weeks ago, one stood out for many reasons. It was the voice of a realtor making cold calls to homeowners on our road hoping to find someone interested in listing their home. There was something very special about that voice in that It exuded sincerity and warmth. We were not interested in selling our home and, normally, I would have deleted the message. But, predicated on the quality of her voice, I chose to text her. Molly, immediately, returned my text and said she was looking for the right home for her clients. I told her we weren't going to be selling but had very good friends who were thinking of listing in the near future. The introduction was made. My friends were thrilled with her qualities, professionalism, knowledge, and resources, if they should be needed. I know Molly has been diligent in being sure her clients and my friends are able to make their moving process go as smoothly as possible. She goes above and beyond and truly walks the walk!!! She is the epitome of my image of who a good realtor should be.
We found Molly to be delightful, funny, encouraging, highly knowledgeable of the area and real estate market, process and negotiations. We were selling our home of 24+ years that had a huge barn and 8 out buildings on ten acres. We also were looking for a new place for retirement at the same time. It was a monumental task I don’t know how we would have gotten through this process without her help. She kept everyone we had to deal with inline and on schedule and in a very pleasant and professional way. She has a wonderful ability to listen, calm your fears and get things going on the right track. Molly was available to us to answer questions, set up showings almost anytime day or night. If we had to leave a message on text she always got back to us within a few minutes to a couple hours usually. Molly listed and sold our home in 6 weeks and also found us our new home and somehow managed to get it closed in two weeks! Molly works hard for you and loves her job and is fantastic at it! We would definitely use her again!
We were referred to Molly Buttleman to find and purchase our dream home in the Traverse City area. As we were new to the area, Molly spent days showing us different neighborhoods and communities. Her extensive local knowledge was very impressive, down to differences in property tax rates. Once we had identified the neighborhood we were targeting, Molly made sure we were aware of all available properties. The service Molly provided far exceeded our expectations. For example, hours after our house hit the market, Molly drove over an hour, at night, to show us Facetime video of the interior. In addition, as we flew back to Traverse City, Molly arranged a tour and worked to be sure the listing agent knew he had another interested buyer on the way. Molly provided excellent advice in navigating a process with multiple qualified buyers. With her expert advice, throughout the negotiations, we got the house. We recommend Molly, without reservation, to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area.
