Merri Ott has been our realtor for over 25 years. We've bought and sold three properties through her. She is one of the most professional realtors we know who goes far beyond expectations to get the best result possible. We highly recommend Merri Ott if you are considering her as your agent."

"Merri is the ultimate professional in real estate ... knowledgeable, honest, energetic, and she really is interested in doing the best job she can for her clients. Her great sense of humor makes for an easy and pleasant experience at what can be a very stressful time.She listed our home and it sold 10 days later! We heartily recommend Merri!

"Merri is very courteous and professional. She is flexible and accomodating which is very helpful when you want to see houses last minute or when you have a unpreditable and demanding work schedule. She really came through at the end during closing when the lender was dragging their feet. She was able to push the lender to close on our house on time at the conditions we intially agreed on. Thanks Merri!"

Merri is a great Realtor!
We had Merri sell our home. She held open houses, was available at any time to answer questions, and help find great contractors when we had an issue that had to be taken care of. Because of Merri doing all she did, we received the an offer we couldn't refuse.
Merri also helped us find our current home. She gathered all of the data that we were looking for and did a lot of leg work to help us find our dream home and helped to work an excellent deal for us that included many extras in the home.
She stands behind, beside and in front of you to take care of any issues that arise!
Anyone looking for great Realtor would be very wise to work with Merri Ott!"

Merri is awesome! She takes pride in knowing her clients and finding the perfect place for them! She is sweet, caring, personable, knowledgeable, hard working, and dependable.

The service and personal attention I received from Merri Ott was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! She is truly a high-caliber person and we remain friends to this day. Her vast experience, knowledge of the local market, and key contacts in the community helped me in selling my home quickly. After patiently going through offers and explaining details with me, she made sure I got the best offer!
Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Merri Ott-Gomes to help you in this life changing move. I could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide me through the process!"

Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Merri Ott. I would recommend her in a heartbeat her to anyone. We are first time buyers and very unknowledgeable about the house buying process. Merri excellently guided us through the whole complicated process with such care, understanding and professionalism. She gave us facts and figures, made recommendations when asked and allowed us to make our decisions however long it took. We were very inexperienced and had a modest budget, but she never made us feel this way.
Merri understood the importance of our making the right choice on our first house and followed up on all angles possible to ensure that we achieved all our goals. Not only did we get our dream home, but she made the process seem very easy. She is really a gem and we now consider her family friend. We can't thank her enough.
Merri gives you her 100%. She is committed to making her clients happy. She is very patient, knowledgeable and to top it all, she is a kind soul. We are really fortunate to have met and worked with her."

"After searching for a house for about a year and a half with Merri, my wife and I unexpectedly found a house the very same week we were getting married. We beat out a higher offer on the house due to Merri's suggestions and preparedness, and with her expertise we were able to swiftly close within 30 days of the offer without any problems, minimal stress, high confidence, a good relationship with the sellers, and a great home warranty. As first time home buyers we needed someone we could really trust with our home and our future, and I'm so glad Merri was recommended to us!"

"Thanks to Merri we had a fantastic home buying experience. By the time we were done we'd purchased the _perfect_ home and made in a new friend. Merri is a total professional and we are fortunate to benefit from her knowledge of this market. We let her know our requirements and then reviewed a few property listings to get her tuned in to what we were looking for. Luckily for us, Merri spotted a home that was in an area we didn't know existed and we were able to view it the first day on the market. With a competitive offer and Merri working her magic in presenting it, the house was ours. Thanks for everything, Merri. Cheers!"

"I just bought my first home. This was an experience I could have not gone through with out Merri Ott-Gomes. We had to deal with a difficult seller and a difficult seller's realtor. Merri dealt with them and stood up for me all the way until the end. Merri is very knowledgeable and experienced. Having her to my side, I was not afraid to make a mistake. Her advice is invaluable. She is also so well connected, that thanks to her, I met the mortgage broker that, finally, made me a home owner. Merri, there are no words to thank you for helping me get my own home. I will always be grateful to you. Lupita Maurer"

"My wife and I decided to look for a retirement home in Oregon to escape the cold Michigan winters and to live in a more progressive and tolerant social environment. As my wife had never been to Oregon, I had planned to show her around and meet with a real estate agent to get the feel of the different cities in and around the Portland-Salem area. We met with our financial planner prior to going and he offered, “sage advice”, “if you find something you like, buy it.” We had no expectation of finding what we wanted in such a short time; which at that moment was a log cabin. I searched the sites of many agents and called a dozen or more. I had found no one who stood out. I even had one relator tell me she wasn’t interested. Then, I came across Merri Ott’s site, and her references, ratings, and testimonial were so different in quality, that I told my wife that I wanted her to talk with Merri and only Merri. They hit it off immediately and we scheduled a few days to meet with Merri and look at houses. We told her what type of home were looking for.
When we actually met Merri, I must say that the reviews had not prepared us for truly exceptional person we met. Merri is extremely professional, she had information on what seemed close to a 75 homes. We quickly winnowed that down to about two dozen in a few hours. The next day, we met at her office and looked over the newest listing and found a couple. Merri learned a lot about us and what we were looking for in this process. After that we began touring homes, and soon became evident that what we thought we wanted was not what we actually wanted and the next day Merri refined our search. We had seen several homes and were ready to quit, but Merri strongly indicated that we should see the last home and it was the most incredible home we had ever seen and there was no question that this was the home we wanted!
Merri helped us ward off competing offers. Along the way, Merri had to renegotiate the closing date with the seller several times, and communi"
