OPEN HOUSES are an essential part of selling Homes. They are a great way for buyers to view a new listing to the market, or for taking that second look.  Our open houses are advertised through the internet, social media, local print media, and are well attended.

Recently we hosted several Greenleaves Over 55 Condominium open houses, and an offer was received on one of them shortly thereafter. Many REALTORS® may say, "I've never sold a home at an open house."  Well that is not the case! It is happening more and more, and an open house always piques one's interest.  We can see this through our website and other site analytics.  Once your property open house is placed on the internet, the hits, or views on the internet, increase.

The Boston Globe recently published an article all about Open House behavior of visitors, and why REALTORS® host them.  

This Globe article discusses the benefits of having weeknight open houses.  The Jones Team often hosts a Friday "commuter open house" for the convenience of the busy working buyer. A weeknight open house also offers a different view of the vibrancy of a neighborhood when everyone is home.  

Our team of 60+ REALTORS® are here to represent your property with the utmost accuracy, integrity and professionalism.  If you're thinking of selling your property, contact one of our three offices for a FREE Market Analysis.  We'll be happy to host your open house and get it SOLD!


We came across this article in the Boston Globe discussing what relocating workers look for in Massachusetts.  Our Jones Team has been helping employees relocate to the Pioneer Valley for decades offering tours of our towns in the area and more.  When our family relocated from Tennessee to Amherst 10 years ago after accepting a position at UMass, our Jones REALTOR® not only showed us several homes but also gave us a tour of many towns, schools, gave us information about utility services, local and state taxes and even recommended a flooring company and carpenter once we settled in.  She found us the perfect home to raise our two sons in a neighborhood where they made many friends. Marge Roy was our "go to" person for the numerous questions we had about the area long after the move.

Our Jones Team is empathetic when working with a buyer relocating from out of the area. It can be an exciting yet challenging time, especially when you are transitioning children to a new area and schools.  I felt that our REALTOR® truly cared about our well-being.  After our first winter in New England, in March we received a lovely card with a gift card to a local nursery from her with a message that said "spring is just around the corner."  Of course, we discovered spring comes much later here than in the south! 

Whether you work with Jones as a buyer or seller, you will receive a questionnaire after your transaction to follow-up with you.  Why?  Because the reputation of Jones Group REALTORS® is important, and we want to make sure that you are satisfied with your experience every step of the way...because we care. We have 60 agents who are all knowledgeable about the Valley and are here to help with all of your relocation needs, before and after your move.
