Testimonials


Right from the start Alyx put us at ease with her friendly, easy way and her total control of all the details of the process - and she only got more amazing from there. She responded to all of our texts and emails within moments, she lead us through each step with kindness and confidence, and with her know-how (timing, video, gorgeous photos) we got an asking price offer at the first showing! We simply can't say enough good things about Alyx! If you get the chance to work with her, run, don't walk to sign the paperwork!

A great way to gauge a professional's standing in their respective field is to note the way that they are regarded by the colleagues they work with frequently. Everyone we met, from pre-authorization to closing with our attorney had exactly the same reaction when we told them the name of our agent: their face lit up and they said "I love Alyx, she's the best! She makes my job easier." Alyx is outstandingly organized, responsive, and personable; everyone she works with in related fields is happy to do her a favor, and that valuable advantage is passed along to her clients. I couldn't have asked for better guidance (and patience!) every step of the way. Alyx has phenomenal instincts, great taste, and a steel-trap mind for negotiation. This is a very smart choice for anyone looking to buy or sell in the Valley's fast-moving market.

I had the good fortune of working with Alyx recently for the sale of my condo. Efficient and professional are the two key words I would use to describe her style and approach to home sales. Alyx worked with me to accommodate my schedule and needs. Due to my travel plans and need for a fast sale, Alyx navigated the entire process and communicated to me only when specific information was required. We used text messaging as our main communication solution, thus allowing fast, courteous exchanges. This allowed me to know what was going on, but only focus on key areas of the condo sale. Alyx was intuitive to understand my priorities and provided a superior effort to complete the sale in an expedited professional manner that allowed me the confidence in knowing my expectations would be met - without hesitation. I recommend Alyx!!

Working with Alyx was a delight. She knows her stuff; she has a calming, steady presence; she responded quickly to our questions; and with enormous integrity she guided and accompanied us through the process of selling our house. I trust her judgment. She negotiated fairly, and she treated everyone concerned with tact and respect. She looked out for our interests, but she was also kind to everyone involved -- when, for instance, I, the seller, asked her whether I should make a few small repairs that the buyers hadn't requested, Alyx simply said: Do for them what you wish they would do for you. I made the repairs, and I appreciated Alyx's quiet encouragement to do the right thing. Thanks to Alyx's steady counsel we got through the tough conversations with the buyers and the sale was a happy one for everyone concerned. I recommend Alyx without reservation

We got an in-person meeting within days of contacting her and we felt supported and kept in the loop through our entire buying process. She is so reliable, has great attention to detail, and just has a real warmth about her. Would recommend to all.

"We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Alyx Akers. Alyx is exceptionally skilled at identifying her clients aesthetic quickly and then doggedly finding properties to show. She is a extremely hard worker, quick at responding to inquires, and following up with questions and or concerns with lightning speed. It is also important to note that Alyx follows up with EVERY aspect of the purchase. She has been a terrific resource finding local craftspeople to assist us with renovation projects. I have bought three homes in my life, and I can honestly say that Alyx was the most conscientious realtor I have had the pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her. "

"I was very impressed with how responsive and helpful Alyx was. Thanks to her expertise and hard work we avoided buying a dreaded "money pit" and are living in a fantastic house. She also guided us through what I would call some unusual negotiations by the sellers and their agent. I would recommend Alyx to anyone without hesitation! Thank you Alyx."

"Alyx is an outstanding agent. She knows the area, is straightforward, smart, always calm, and responds so quickly to communications that you have to wonder how she does it. If you are interested in the Northampton area, we cannot recommend her highly enough. Thanks Alyx!"
- REAK



"I can not say enough wonderful things about Alyx. the most outstanding thing about her is her ability to communicate clearly and openly about processes that may be difficult to understand or are somewhat sensitive. she is direct and clear and explains everything in a thoughtful manner. she helped us find the perfect rental property! thank you Alyx!"
- JLSmith



"Alyx Akers is a wonderful realtor. From the very first contact she took seriously what our individual needs were and provided great guidance along the way. She was tireless in her efforts in helping us along the whole process of viewing and, in the end, she opened our eyes to the virtues of a condo that we'd not previously given enough attention to and which turned out to be our dream apartment. There was not one aspect of the process that she did not address proactively right down to the ultimate purchase. She responded to phone calls and emails quickly, often within minutes, and was always a delight to work with. It's not clear when she finds time to sleep!"
-Moira Inghilleri



"My wife and I along with our twin daughters recently worked with Alyx Akers to find a home in the Northampton area. Relocating from Florida, we needed to find an agent who was knowledgable about the area (including schools) as well as someone who we could trust to help with all aspects of a long distance purchase. We have used agents in the past to buy and sell our homes; however, after working with Alyx, we understand what working with an exceptional agent really means. One of the things we appreciated most was that she kept us in the information loop. We rarely, if ever, had to question what was happening. In addition, Alyx has a tremendous work ethic; I'm not sure if the poor woman sleeps. She consistently answered all of our text, email and phone messages at breakneck speeds. Not only did Alyx help us with purchase of our home, but she also assisted in so many aspects of our relocation that went far beyond the call of duty. If you are at a crossroads with choosing an agent, save yourself the time and worry and choose Alyx. She has well surpassed all of our expectations."
- Kristin Prentice



"Alyx guided me through the process of selling my cousin's home with expertise, professionalism, and great good humor. Because I don't live in the area, she was a font of ideas and information, from where to sell furniture to the correct placement of smoke detectors. From our original meeting through the closing, I always felt that she was looking out for and negotiating toward whatever was in my best interest. I cannot recommend Alyx highly enough; you simply cannot find a better real estate agent."
- M. Greanier



"Alyx is AMAZING!! My boyfriend and I were first time homebuyers, and Alyx made every step as smooth as possible. With every unexpected bump in the road we hit during the process (none of which were her fault) she handled with such confidence and ease. Alyx never made us feel like we were first time homebuyers, she would teach us throughout the way and made it more of a learning process. She was open to our opinions and suggestions but wasn't afraid to step up and tell us when something didn't feel right. Which we loved. We are so happy in our new home and couldn't have asked for a better realtor to work with! We would definetly use her again and totally recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!"
-Michuet03



"Alyx was the second realtor I spoke to about selling my house. She immediately put me at ease with what was for me a brand new process. Every e-mail, text, and phone call received immediate response and when needed action. I could not have been happier with her help and the results!"
- Marnina212



"As first-time home-buyers, we were so glad to have Alyx on our side! She guided us through a months-long search, offers, inspections, and negotiations -- always with a smile, a clear head, sound advice, no pressure, no BS, and lots of patience. During a busy season, she took the time to understand what was important to us, and helped us find and purchase a home that made sense for our goals, our budget, and our life. We also appreciated that she was knowledgeable about topics ranging from rental properties to furnaces, and she was able to put us in touch with excellent professionals who could help us evaluate potential renovations and repairs to be done post-closing. Alyx worked smoothly with sellers' agents, our lawyer, our inspector, and everyone else involved. She's a total professional, a highly effective ally, and a true pleasure to be around; working with Alyx was a great decision for us."
-Kate Lucas



"Not only was Alyx extremely knowledgeable in her field and very professional, she was also personable, and was quick in answering any questions or concerns that we had along the way of finding and purchasing our home. She also made this process less daunting, and for all of these great attributes, I am truly grateful to her."

"Alyx was just great. She was always on top of things thinking of things that we didn't right up to and after closing. She was available, responsive and very accommodating.

"Alyx was our broker when we looking for and then purchased a new condo for our daughter. When we were looking we appreciated having access to her extensive knowledge of the real estate market in our area and new properties as they became available. We decided to purchase a property but finalizing the sale was not a simple matter. We depended on Alyx to advise us and negotiate on our behalf. She virtually held our hand every step of the way and responded almost immediately to our concerns questions. We literally never had to wait for her to return a call or e-mail and would recommend Alyx without reservation!"
-Nora Albert



"In 2007, our family began an epic search for a home in the Northampton area. We met Alyx through a professional recommendation from someone else in a related area of the housing field with whom we'd worked for years. This was one of the best referrals I've ever received. Alyx was such a cheerful human being, a patient and relaxing presence in the midst of stressful stuff. Among us in the family were real estate newbies and very seasoned buyers, and Alyx was professional, knowledgable, and accessible to all of us, meeting us at our individual levels. Because of Alyx, we found a home we loved, and it was so obvious that Alyx loved helping us. When we finally come back from the West Coast, guess who's the first person we're calling for help? Thanks, Alyx!"
-Austin J. Austin

"As neophytes coming down to central Massachusetts from the wilds of Vermont, we were lucky to find Alyx. She is smart, responsive, and best of all, has an easy sense of humor— a great asset in the sometimes tense world of real estate negotiation and closing."
