Good job! You landed on the right page…Buying a home? Selling one? I’ve got you covered.
I may not be a youngster, but that has its advantages, you know. I’ve lived in the Pioneer Valley for 53 years now. Think about that for a second: you need to buy or sell a home; you want someone with extensive experience who is willing to work tirelessly on your behalf.
If you’re an out-of-towner and you plan to settle in the Five College area, you need a REALTOR® who knows the region inside and out. If you give me a few hints about what you’re looking for I can tell you thoughtfully and quickly the areas and homes that may be of most interest to you. And I can tell you a lot more than that; I can recommend services, eateries, events, great things to do with your kids. Think of me as your custom smart phone!
If you’re not new to the area, my experience and expertise will allow me to align with your wish list and find you the perfect home in your chosen location; or, if you’re selling, I will guide you knowledgeably and confidently through that process as well, ensuring you get the best possible market price for your home.
You can be sure that with my years of navigating the real estate industry, I’ll see your transaction(s) through with a minimum of fuss, including utilizing my extensive network to provide you with recommendations for all required services throughout the process.
And who am I, you ask? I am an Amherst resident now, and raised my two kids with my husband in the nearby town of Shutesbury. We owned the Jeff Bookshop across from the Amherst Common for many years, which was perfect for our family of heavy readers. Though Bob is no longer with me, we both hail from Michigan, and began our adventure back east shortly after my daughter Abby was born. I loved it here immediately; the cultural activities, the beauty of the land, the great educational opportunities that give the whole area its lively attitude with the influx of young people each fall. As for my kids, I’m lucky enough to have my son Tom and his family right here in Amherst, while Abby makes her home in Denver.
Extra-curriculars: I got into theater back in the late 70s, have been doing performances of all sorts for many years in the area now. I love attending theater, too and am so grateful for the Amherst Cinema. Speaking of which, travel is another of my favorites, as well as just settling in to my favorite chair with a cup and a great book! My personal odyssey has led me to a wide collection of friends on a colorful array of journeys of their own. I sure hope you become one of them.
Enough said. Call me! I can’t wait to help you on your journey. 413-559-7900
"Dee Waterman supported us from beginning to end. We trusted her judgement and yet, when a decision was ours to make, she listened so well that we had no doubt that we had a knowledgeable and faithful partner. Her long experience in real estate had been a reason to choose her to be our agent, and that proved to be the right decision." Mary Kitagawa | Home Seller June 18, 2021
“Dee Waterman brought the perfect mix of professional knowledge, personal warmth, logistical advocacy, and on-point communication. From helping us define our search criteria to visiting open houses to assisting us through our offer and closing process, Dee was a total pleasure to work with!” Harrison Blum | Home Buyer April 23, 2019
“Dee Waterman is awesome. First of all, she tirelessly took me all over the area looking at one house after another, all with great potential. We checked something out and it was perfect! She nailed it. Then, a few years later, we turned around and did it all over again, this time looking at even more houses. She nailed it again! Additionally, she has been extremely helpful with getting set up in the neighborhood. But the best part is she is so much fun!” Stephen Dydo | Home Buyer April 13, 2019
"We worked with Dee Waterman to sell our home. Dee did a fantastic job. She is a good listener, and also provided very good advice which led to an easy experience. Thank you Dee!" Michael Krebs | Home Seller, September 13, 2018
“With the sale completed and all forms filled out, we wanted to show our approval for the work of Dee Waterman. This was a tough one-a seller out of state, a smaller home sold 'as is', a vacant home, issues of septic systems, overgrown bushes, electricity, fuel tank and furnace, repairs, needed fire alarms and detectors, and insurance inspection visits. Dee Waterman was on top of all that. I understand she sold a somewhat similar rural small home previously. So we were lucky to have her sell this house at 75 Amherst Road in Pelham. It must have been 6 months that she worked on that house sale. She got the buyer, she got the lawyer, she got the needed maintenance, she got the inspections, she got the required fire alarms and detectors-and she made good decisions. Dee was in touch with us at all times and even made time to meet with us at the house in Pelham on our one visit to Amherst/Pelham (when we went to the funeral of first-cousin Robert Joy in Amherst). Thank you Jones Realtors for having Dee Waterman working on this house sale. We are delighted with the work of Dee Waterman.” James Cooley | Home Seller, January 13, 2017
“This was a complex Estate sale process and Dee Waterman handled it extraordinarily well. She maintained continuous communication necessary for an out-of-state sale. In doing so, she undertook responsibilities that are usually assumed by the home owner. This greatly helped reduce stress levels. I would highly recommend Dee as an agent for your consideration when selling your home.” Valerie Goodrich | Home Seller, December 27, 2016
“We sold our home and purchased one as well. Dee Waterman is the consummate professional, with sound advice, good humor, and customer-oriented responsiveness. Dee was our realtor in 2004, and our trust in her was such that we of course chose her again in 2016.” Jan Powers | Home Seller & Buyer, August 22, 2016
“Twenty-three years ago Dee Waterman assisted me in finding the house I purchased. Over the years since then we became friends. Now that I needed to sell the house, Dee again provided guidance in getting the house sold. Her level-headed approach to the whole process was a welcomed one that kept the procedures on track.” Melvin Carlson | Home Seller & Buyer, July 16, 2016
“I could go on for days about how lovely, competent and helpful Dee Waterman was with both finding us a house, helping with every aspect of our purchase and then assisting with getting my house ready for selling. It was sold in 5 days! I felt very well taken care of! I could not have asked for a more wonderful experience on both ends!” Lisa Pack | Home Seller & Buyer, July 7, 2016
