“Buying our home with Melissa was a great experience. Melissa was very responsive and helped us purchase our home in a very fast paced, competitive market. Selling our old house with Melissa was even better. With her help and the help of her team, we were able to market beautifully and sell very quickly with an attractive offer.”

"We have been exploring the possibility of moving to the Granville area for several months. We ran into Jared at an open house and have been in steady contact over the last 2 months. He is very thoughtful and detailed individual and we have had a wonderful experience with him guiding our search throughout Granville. Although we are not actively pursuing a move at this time, we strongly recommend Jared to any prospective clients."

“Lauren's expert knowledge of the local area provided us so much comfort as we moved here from out of state. She understood what we were looking for and our priorities to find the best home for our family. She was always available, willing to meet around our schedule, and seamlessly negotiated through the finish line.”

“When my husband and I were ready to downsize, Mary was the only realtor we considered to help us.  Her extensive professional real estate experience provided us with a smooth transition in both selling and purchasing our homes.  She was always quick with responses to our questions and gave us her expert guidance throughout the entire process.  We always felt confident that we were with the best real estate team from start to finish."

further than Lauren Pearson. My husband “If you're looking for a realtor, look no and I have used Lauren for two purchases and found her to be very competent, professional, and accommodating. Since we were out of state for the transaction she went above and beyond her normal duties...”

“So my wife and put our Granville home on the market, and an offer was made in less than a day. I repeat, in less than a day. But even that piece of great news was topped: the prospective buyers offered a price above asking, a price that we had thought was already aggressively optimistic..."

“I truly enjoyed working with Mary. She listened and understood my needs as a seller and responded quickly and definitively to questions and concerns. Selling a well-loved home with many emotional ties was difficult, but Mary was respectful and caring every step of the way.”

"Lauren blends professionalism and expertise with warm approachability. Her knowledge of the real estate market is broad - we asked several uncommon questions and she had answers (or knew where to look) for each. She was personally involved with our showing and added members of her team when appropriate. We highly recommend Lauren if your real estate needs include expertise, availability and helpful guidance."

“Mary Paumier was absolutely wonderful is every aspect of selling my home. From her first visit to look at the property she saw all of the positives rather than focusing on imperfections that other realtors often do. I felt we were a team in getting the house ready, staging it, planning open houses, and working with potential buyers. Beyond her expertise and great suggestions, Mary was fun to work with. I can't recommend her highly enough.”

"I worked with Jared for over 1-1/2 years to find just the right place, and with Lauren to sell my home. They are both very personable, patient, knowledgeable, and unflappable. We had excellent communication and the whole Village Partners team was great. I would use them again!"

"Jared is a wonderful person and working with him was a pleasure.  He was always available as he guided us through a most difficult process.  The seller had no agent and this presented seemingly insurmountable problems, problems that were easily solved by Jared.  He was always calm, pleasant, and reassuring.  He is smart, focused, and has an impeccable work ethic.  We highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.  He's incredible!!"

"Trust - the biggest financial transaction of your life demands trust; Mary and team have earned ours and we will continue to use them and recommend them."

"Lauren did a wonderful job of communicating every step of the way. Absolutely no surprises. Thank you for helping us sell our house."

"If you are buying or selling a home in a special community like Granville,  you want a Realtor that is an active member of the community and knows this area/real estate market better than most.  We had no hesitation contacting Mary Paumier to list our home.   It was pleasure working again with Mary and the rest of the team (Jared, Lauren and the great support from the office team)."
