Bill Wilkinson’s Testimonials

Bill Wilkinson 

“We would like to express to you our deep appreciation of the wonderful experience we had with Options 1-5-3, because of Bill Wilkenson.  He is a top – notch realtor, very professional and caring.  We know he is trustworthy and a person of integrity. He was always available to us during both the sale and purchase of our homes.  He took the extra time to explain all the paperwork involved in the sale and negotiations of our house, which seemed to be overwhelming.  He had to deal with a very difficult realtor during the sale of our house. He always was calm and respectful in spite of how he was treated. He went well beyond what we expected from a realtor.   We have and will recommend Bill and Options 1-5-3. You can be proud to have Bill Wilkenson working on your team!

Thank You!!!

Denise Harrison’s Testimonials

Denise Harrison
“Thank you Denise!  Choosing a realtor you can depend on was a big decision for my husband and I, when we were deciding to sell. We’ve sold 3 houses and had some experiences we would like to forget! You gave us a new respect for having a professional realtor market and sell our house, especially in a depressed market as we had in 2009, there were doubts we could sell without major frustration. You set out, and marketed without hesitation, prepared and organized successfully drawing the crowds that ultimately sold our house. We also appreciate your communication through the sales processes, you took the time to ensure, explain and guide us all the way where other agents we’ve had in the past didn’t.
Thanks Denise!
Mr. and Mrs. Ross. M.”

Kim Walsh’s Testimonials

Kim Walsh


“To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing to let you know how wonderful our experience was with Kim Walsh.  My boyfriend and I decided to purchase a condo in Brighton, MA and immediately thought of Kim as our broker.  We contacted her, she got an idea of what we wanted and she set up numerous appointments for us that very next Saturday.  I have to tell you that my criteria for a house was near impossible in the city of Brighton too.  Nonetheless Kim did an amazing job in finding houses to meet that strict criteria.  Every time we met with her she was always smiling, upbeat, friendly, professional and optimistic.  She gave us the best advice “You’ll know when you find the house you want because you will both love it!”  After looking at about twelve condos, we found IT!  It was exactly what we wanted and my boyfriend and I fell in love with it on the spot.  Kim helped us make an offer that very night we looked at the condo.  She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the offer/counteroffer of the condo.  We ended up purchasing our dream condo for exactly what we wanted!  I was impressed with Kim’s responsiveness.  She would always call us right back and was always on top of it.  Our experience with Kim was delightful and I have already recommended Kim to two of my closest friends.  I would recommend Kim to anyone.

Deb Oldham’s Testimonials

Deb Oldham
“My husband and I offer enthusiastic praise for Debra Oldham. Deb came highly recommended to us in 1993, after we had listed our condo unsuccessfully with another agent. Deb sold our condo in record time, found us a short-term rental property, and then the perfect home. When it was time to sell our home in 2008, we called Deb. She brought us a full-price offer in one weekend, then helped us locate a new home. She made the house-hunting process pleasant by offering suggestions and cautions where needed, respecting our choices, steering us clear of problematic properties, and following up on details. While many realtors can bring buyers and sellers together, what we love about Deb is her continual enthusiasm, patience, practical wisdom, and willingness to go the extra mile for her clients. If we ever move again, Deb will be the 1st person we call!

Warren Valente’ Testimonials

Warren Valente
“I bought my first home last February of 2009.  My realtor was Warren Valente with Options 153.  I went with Warren because I knew him through friends and I am very happy I did.  Not only did I purchase my first home, but I was able to learn more about real estate than I ever imagined.  I give this credit to Warren who acted not only as a realtor, but as a teacher.  I felt extremely comfortable working with Whenever I had a question, he had the answer.  With his answers always came an explanation so that I could understand exactly what was happening.  To me, this is most important when purchasing a home.

Warren was also very accommodating.  With my schedule, was able to meet with me at the most convenient times, even if this meant changing his own plans.  With a significant purchase such as buying a house, it turned out to be an enjoyable process for me.  I take pleasure in having worked with Warren.  Not only did I learn a lot and buy a house but, I had fun doing this.  I will definitely recommend Warren with Options 153 to my friends and family.

Thank you very much!

Jane Coit’s Testimonials

Jane Coit
“Buying a house is always an adventure. But our recent relocation — a lightning-fast move back to New England after nine years in Austria — was a unique challenge. Thank goodness for Jane Coit of Options 153, who went right to work for us even before we left Europe.
There were a few unexpected bumps on the road to our dream home, but Jane worked quickly, tirelessly and efficiently to smooth the way. Along the way, we got a terrific overview of the region from Jane, who knows the Plymouth area inside-out. She seemed to sense instinctively what we were looking for, and in the end, she helped us find that special property.
If you need a highly professional, knowledgeable and responsive agent, you’ll be in good hands with Jane Coit and Options 153.

Michelle Barnett’s Testimonials

Michelle Barnett

When our family began to outgrow our first home, we began to look for something larger. We found our House of Dreams in September of 2009, and called the listing agent, Michelle Barnett. She immediately told us that it was a short sale, and then patiently and clearly explained exactly what that meant. She was incredibly honest about the risks and the benefits of being involved in a short sale, and armed with clear information, we took the plunge.
We listed the house we owned with Michelle, and she did an absolutely expert job at handling the sale in just two short months. As we waited…and waited…and waited for the short sale to come though, Michelle was always patient and available, keeping us updated and doing all that she could to support us through the long wait. After eight months, the short sale finally went through, and Michelle shared in our celebration with a full heart. She handled all of the paperwork and details with complete professionalism, and a sense of celebration and joy that is, I think, very rare. I really felt that Michelle viewed her profession with a sense of mission and purpose, and that helping people find and secure a home – thefoundation of their lives – was far more than a job for her, but a true calling. She gave us a wonderful “welcome home” gift, and even a year later, a “house-a-versary” gift. That level of customer service, even so long after the fact, impressed and touched me. We love our home, and will be ever grateful to Michelle for her outstanding service to our family. I would reccommend Michelle without reservation, and would absolutely encourage my dearest friends to put Michelle at the very top of their list of brokers if they were buying or selling a home.

Simply put, she’s the best of the business.

~Kelly Browne Plymouth, MA

“My husband and I can certainly recommend Michelle Barnett! She patiently worked with us for over two years taking us from “We’re just looking to get an idea.” to “We found just the right house!”. From there she took us through the buying process very smoothly. She was always very available and attended to the many details of our purchase in a timely manner. Michelle is very personable and professional and pleasant to work with!”

“I would highly recommend Michelle Barnett. When I sold my home and bought another in Nov. 2011 she was right there for me. I’m a widow and it was scary, I had lived in my home thirty seven plus years. Michelle did a great job and made the moves easier for me. Michelle is a great asset to her company they should be very proud of her.”

“Michelle Barnett is an amazing realtor. I met Michelle as I was looking for a home. I called the office requesting to view a home and was lucky to have Michelle show it to me. I had her come to give me a market analysis on my home. I was so impressed withe package that Michelle had put together for marketing my home. My home sold the FIRST day it was on the market and I needed to find a new home in 5 weeks! Michelle helped me and not only did I find a home in the exact neighborhood, but the perfect home!! Michelle and I had a difficult closing due to the finance company. She handled the situation with utmost professionalism and alway put me, her customer first. Michelle is the best and I highly recommend her!!”
