Testimonials

Molly is a Realtor in every good sense of the word and beyond - extraordinary, professional, clever, knowledgeable, focused, detailed and honest. She was with us every step of the way in a tough buyers market and met every obstacle with sound and practical advice. From helping us hire painters and a staging company to negotiating a final sale - and in between finding a family for a short-term lease, and then the perfect area condo for us that we still enjoy. Our experience had a happy ending because Molly is a hands on professional who persisted and the buyer she found for our unique property is just the one she described at the start. As a buyer and a seller I recommend her wholeheartedly.

S.M. Buyer/Seller

I had bought and sold many homes over the years in Fairfield County. I was in the market for a new one and asked a friend for a referral. I wanted to start a fresh. I wanted an agent who was professional, business like, intuitive...an agent who was simply concerned with determining what her client was looking for and finding it at the best price possible. I was referred to Molly and immediately upon introduction she set out to understand what I was looking for and to deliver!!! While real estate itself is “ emotional” , the task of surveying the market and determining best fit and value, is highly analytical. The emotion was for me to experience, it was Molly’s job to cull through an expansive inventory and prioritize showings and respect my time. She did just that!! She was with me every step of the way from analyzing the market, to attending countless showings being always prepared with materials, to providing any and all follow up documentation I requested for homes I saw ( involving numerous trips city hall!), to debriefing my thoughts ad infinitum and having her own highly intuitive sense of fit for me and unafraid to share it, to negotiating the offer, attending inspections and negotiating results, to overseeing every last detail of the closing — Molly was there. I’m so grateful to have found such a warm professional to guide me through this journey!!!

J.P. Buyer

Molly is the best! She is hard-working, honest and diligent. She represented us as both buyer and seller. Before we even found our new home, she had marketed our old house throughout her William Pitt network, so we had eager buyers waiting for our house to be listed. She prepared beautiful listing brochures, spent hours helping us stage our house for sale and held open houses for both brokers and buyers. She was always available to us – whether it be to show a home in the evening or weekend, answer questions about a listing or go to town hall multiple times to follow up on questions that came up after seeing a home. In addition, having lived in the area her entire life, she is extremely knowledgeable and stays on top of the market. Two things that I think differentiate Molly from other realtors are: (i) her ability to think outside the box (she found our house listed “For Sale by Owner” on a non-MLS listing; without her, we would not have looked in New Canaan to begin with and would have never found our house and (ii) her “eye” for seeing a home for what it is and/or can be. In many homes that we saw, she was able to offer interesting ideas of how you can renovate/decorate to make a home meet your needs and desires.

K.H. Buyer/Seller

I am pleased to share our experience with Molly. Molly represented us in the sale of our home during a very difficult market. The price needed to be right and the marketing aggressive. The materials and information needed to be available for potential buyers on the internet and local papers, and brochures had to be created. Molly prepared exceptional marketing material and utilized all available sources. Molly made sure that we had prepared our home for positive viewings. She was energetic and enthusiastically held broker and public open houses. We were advised on all aspects of assessing the price for the market and had a negotiating plan agreed upon. Molly's strengths came through with her good communication skills, feedback, follow through, and her outgoing personality. She easily communicated with other brokers and potential buyers. Her effort was tireless and detailed. Once an offer was made, Molly expertly handled every aspect of the negotiation and had a deal agreed upon in a few hours! We would strongly recommend Molly as an agent to anyone who wants a hardworking, loyal, outgoing, and very respected agent within the broker community.

J.S. Seller

Could not have had a better experience. Molly was first rate through the whole process. She guided us through getting our house ready to sell and was spot on in helping us price our home. It sold in 11 days in a slow market! She was also on top of our closing lawyer to get things to us in a timely manner.

J. & C. S. Seller

“Molly helped me with my search for a new home two years ago. She is very professional, she listens to your needs, and does not waste your time looking at houses that do not match your criteria. Also, an added benefit to the buyer is, as a decorator, she brings an extra eye to looking for a house...she can totally visualize and describe the house that one may not be able to see. I ended up buying a house privately, but had she represented me in the purchase, I am confident that she would have been a terrific negotiator on my behalf. She is also a complete delight to work with and I highly recommend Molly if you are looking for a house in Fairfield County."

H.L. Buyer

Molly O'Brien Watkins did an amazing job selling a very unusual property for us. We had a one bedroom cottage on two acres of wetlands in Darien that most brokers were perplexed by. Molly gathered opinions from multiple brokers and came to us with a very well thought out pricing proposal. She advised us on what needed to be done to the cottage before it was listed and prepared very comprehensive and professional marketing materials. She hosted numerous open houses, coordinated showings with other brokers, managed several bids and within a matter of a few weeks, we accepted an offer that was very close to our asking price. Needless to say, we were thrilled. Molly handled our closing and every little issue to get us to that point with complete professionalism, honesty and enthusiasm. I actually found her pulling weeds in the garden prior to a showing! It is without hesitation that I recommend Molly Watkins for any real estate transactions!

S.W. Seller

"I cannot highly recommend Molly enough. She was so thorough when consulting with us and is a complete expert in the area. When we first met she immediately understood our nuances, what we were looking for in a property, and how to guide us to the right opportunities. Absolute pleasure to work with and would recommend her as the first stop if you are looking at real estate in the area."
