My business and my life are based on the Golden Rule – Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Firmly instilled in me as a child, and corny as it may seem, this statement guides my actions. Consequently I provide the same excellence in service to my clients that I would expect.

As a successful professional with over 25 years experience in real estate, I know what a Buyer or Seller should expect even if they do not. Often my clients have commented that they find my demeanor a reassuring combination of calm persistence and a thorough attention to detail. I take great pride in negotiating the best deal for my clients: a skill which I have honed over 25 years of practicing real estate.

The ratification of a contract is only the beginning. It is my responsibility to stay on top of every aspect of each case until it goes to settlement and to deal with any problems that might arise from a home inspection, appraisal, or loan. Following settlement, I continue to stay in touch with my clients for many reasons, such as providing a list of recommended contractors should any work need to be done.

In short, I could not strive to provide the level of service I do year after year, unless I felt that I made a real difference in the lives of my clients during a potentially stressful time. I love my job and I look forward to helping you actually enjoy your real estate experience!

" Betty exceeded all our expectations. She gave great advice, was very knowledgeable about the market & the process, double-and triple-checked all the details to make sure nothing was amiss, and simply gave us superior service in both the sale & purchase of our homes. We couldn't be more pleased! "

– Fritz & Valerie B.

" Betty was an outstanding agent-and she found us the perfect house. We will recommend her to all our friends!"

– Warwick & Kathleen W.

" I cannot begin to describe how pleased we are with the level of service provided us by Betty. Our transactions (buying + selling) were particularly complicated and Betty guided us through them with a superior attitude & unmatched abilities. She became our friend. She always went the extra mile for us-getting multiple bids, & is a valuable resource for us. She even brought us by subs on our move day. I would recommend her whole heartedly, without reservation. McEnearney is lucky to have Betty representing them because she is of stellar+sterling character. We will tell all our friends and family to use Betty Thompson! We certainly couldn't have made it through this process without her. I hope she is rewarded (by McEnearney) for her excellence."

– James & Alexis F.
