Dottie is AMAZING!!!! She found me the home I am currently in (was a foreclosure), walked me thru the entire purchasing process....and 5 years later assisted me with the sale of this property.
No one is more dedicated, available, and hard-working than Dottie! The current real estate market is tumultuous at best. Dottie always maintains a calm, professional, encouraging manner.
She will work TIRELESSLY for you, on any real estate transaction and I cannot recommend her highly enough!!
In a slow and challenging real estate market, Ms. MacRitchie worked miracles in finding qualified candidates for my home in Kent, CT, and, in record time, delivering a buyer at my desired selling price.
I would not think of acquiring or selling real estate properties in this area without bringing Dottie MacRitchie into the equation.
Dottie MacRitchie is a truly dedicated professional (along with many other outstanding qualities, which I will address later.)
What started as a search for a new vacation home evolved into a two-year odyssey. I had never owned a single-family residence, but was a happy city dweller with multiple apartments and a handful of gut/renovations under my belt. I thought I knew a lot. Suffice to say, I didn’t. I didn’t even really know what kind of house I would like. A person like me is a realtor’s nightmare client.
Dottie’s patience is nothing less than awe-inspiring. Over that period, Dottie showed me many, many, many homes — old/new —traditional/contemporary — move-in condition/fixer-upper — Colonial, Saltbox, Farmhouse, etc. All during this time she continually educated me — how to interpret parcel and topographical maps, what to look for in “mechanicals”, what questions to ask, “why things were the way they were.” She even drew me a road map so I could drive & educate myself about an unfamiliar part of CT! After all this time, no home was found.
And then we shifted to looking for land. Dottie effortlessly shifted her focus towards that goal. I had no illusions about my (lack of) knowledge in this area. Another learning experience. Same dedication and determination. We ended up wanting a parcel of land that entailed a challenging negotiation. Dottie worked diligently & tirelessly with the seller’s broker to complete the transaction. And now we are happy owners of a beautiful piece of land in Sharon, CT!
All during our search, Dottie was always extremely prepared, honest, caring and quick with a laugh and a smile.
I will always remember the great job did Dottie did for us and am happy to let others know where to find a friendly and highly experienced real estate professional.
My wife and I met Dottie several years ago through a satisfied client who had purchased a beautiful farm in Sharon. She listened carefully to our needs, and guided us in our home search until we found a great property which fit our somewhat demanding and complex criteria.
Dottie was attentive to details, knowledgeable about the area and homes, and a true professional. We always knew that she was looking out for us and happily she always showed us houses that were within our financial reach. When we were ready to make an offer on a property she gave us sound advice on how to initiate the purchasing process.
Following the purchase of our home Dottie successfully rented the house for us several times in the summer months which helped us finance some leisure travel. In addition, we have made substantial improvements to the house and the master carpenter that Dottie recommended has not only improved our property dramatically but also become a good friend.
Dottie made our home purchase a pleasant experience and we gladly recommend her to anyone looking for property in the region.
I’ve recently had the pleasure of having Dorothy (Dottie) MacRitchie as my listing agent, and would like to highly recommend her to any one of your clients. She is thorough, thoughtful, and very professional.
Dottie was very considerate in helping me through the process of listing and selling my mother’s house last summer. Dottie explained each step, from start to finish. She worked very hard showing the property, and made herself available whenever I needed to contact her.
I have complete confidence in Dottie’s professional experience and knowledge, and because of her warm personable manner, it was an absolute pleasure working with her. Dottie is a person who will work for the client, without a doubt!
I am writing to express my satisfaction with real estate agent Dottie MacRitchie, who represented my family in the sale of an unusual property. Dottie guided us through the entire process, searching for buyers who would make a reasonable offer on this property. She spent many hours preparing a professional presentation of the property. The property sold quickly and without difficulty. We were satisfied with the price we received for the property. I would recommend Dottie MacRitchie to anyone wanting to buy or sell property in this area.
Dottie MacRitchie was a tremendous help to us throughout the process of selling our house and finding a new one. She was professional, very knowledgeable, very available to us at any time, and most importantly, very patient with us. We consider her a life long friend and recommend her highly to everyone.
We have known Dottie MacRitchie for ten years - first as an excellent real estate agent, and ultimately as a good friend. Dottie is the best we have worked with - period! Her professionalism, experience, local knowledge, and kind caring manner have proved invaluable to us and our extended family. She is the person we always turn to and highly recommend for all real estate matters.
It’s with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Dottie MacRitchie. I met Dottie when my husband and I were selling our house in Kent, Connecticut. From the beginning, I valued Dottie’s judgment, competency, and honesty. She told us a fair market price for our house. Her amount was accurate as she found us a buyer, who agreed to our final selling price in December, 2010. Dottie displayed her knowledge and expertise as she guided us through the countless paperwork. I’ve recommended Dottie to my friends in the Northwest Hills of CT.
You are so sweet and are handling me with kid gloves and respect. I wish I had gotten you for my agent before.
Dottie's market knowledge and business acumen instilled confidence during the search and purchase of our home. Dottie is a very professional, and a pleasure to work with.
It is our pleasure to write this reference on behalf of Dottie MacRitchie. When we first moved to Kent, Dottie assisted us in finding our first home here. Since then, she has assisted us in several other real estate transactions, both purchases and sales. And she also helped us in finding several renters for units that we have rented to others. In all of these transactions, she has always been very professional and extremely effective. We have, and would again, recommend her to others needing assistance in real estate transactions.
