Overall, year over year,...Read More

“ WOW! Where do I start. From the moment we saw Betsy, and her kind smiling face, we knew we found the person we wanted to help us find our perfect home. The more we talked with Betsy, and shared laughter and our very realistic desires of what we wanted in a home, Betsy went right to work! Her knowledge of how to help you make any home she shows you an AMAZING home is incredible! What a gift! I call her the “Joanna Gaines of the Northwest!” Betsy went above and beyond, clear up and even after we found our home! She made sure we were happy and pleased with this huge but incredible purchase we made ... a purchase that we will grow old in while creating beautiful memories. I would also dare to believe we made a friend! With me being a person from the Midwest and from the "Show Me State,” Betsy definitely showed us the charm and stunning beauty that Nevada City has to offer! No matter if you are single, have a family or are a couple, Nevada City has everything to offer you in a home. We love our home and everyday I wake up I smile deep inside and give thanks, for not only meeting Betsy but for her showing us the home we fell In love with. Just to show how positive thinking works, I had a vision board and when I unpacked it I found where I had put a home just like ours on it. Thank you Betsy, for making a dream come true and for the amazing kindness you showed us with so much positivity and laughter along the way!”Cal H.
“"I know we have all heard the old saying “There’s gold in these Grass Valley hills” … And it is so very true. Betsy Hamilton, Realtor, is indeed 24 karat gold and is a local precious commodity. I met Betsy several years ago, and she stuck with me for the past SIX years previewing properties, doing property researches, keeping my spirits up when all that I viewed just wasn’t quite right, and assuring me that we will find the perfect home for me. She’s tireless, totally honest, and reliable, and makes you feel that you are her top priority at all times. I cannot thank her enough for being on my team with such a happy ending. I hope, if you are considering any type of property transaction, that you will contact Betsy. She truly is gold.””Peggy G.
“"Betsy was a delight to work with. Diligent, caring, knowledgeable, available. She almost knew better what we were looking for than we did ourselves. We put our trust in her and she did not disappoint. She helped us sell our home (in 2 days!) and patiently helped us look for a new home (we looked at almost 30!). She assisted us every step of the way. I would recommend Betsy and in fact I already have!””Karen B.
“"Betsy Hamilton is hard-working, friendly, local, knowledgable, loves this community and is one of the smartest people I know. She was attentive, well prepared and willing to drive from one end of the area to the other to find me the perfect place. Once chosen, she stayed on top of necessary paperwork, contacting me immediately when the next step arrived. She worked diligently to to make sure my experience was hassle free.””Ross M.
“"Betsy helped us buy a house in Grass Valley last year. We were extremely impressed with her knowledge of the industry and the neighborhood we were buying into. Her professionalism, sunny personality, and attention to detail and our needs made a complex and difficult process effortless - even fun! Cannot recommend Betsy Hamilton strongly enough.””Lisa P.
“"Betsy is unbelievable with her knowledge, professionalism, and all of the above. She most definitely works for her clients in a caring and compassionate manner. It is amazing that she has had only four years of experience. Betsy sold our house on the sixth day of the listing during a Brokers' Open House. We were astounded when she called us and told us that we had a full price offer. Also, she is well on her way to being a 'Rock Star Real Estate Agent,' because even people in town know her name. We highly recommend Betsy's expertise in selling or buying a home, and we wish we could give her 10 stars instead of five!"”Tommy & Cindy D.
“"It is understandable why Betsy is considered one of the finest realtors in Nevada County. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone in need of a competent and cordial realtor. By the time we closed, we grew to consider her a personal friend, as well as a professional we admire. Our hats are off to Betsy.””Rachel M.
““I wish I could give Betsy Hamilton more than five stars! She was so wonderful to work with. I never waited longer than a hour or so for a return call. I was always able to see a home the same day. She was patient and spent all the time I needed explaining the process to me or sometimes just being a sounding board for my first time buyer frustrations. She was also a great advocate for me through the entire process. But the best part of working with Betsy was she found my dream home for me. I can not give her a higher recommendation!"”Jennifer S.
“"Betsy was so helpful and patient while we were looking to buy a home in a seller's market. Always happy to show us homes and willing to meet us early or late or right now to accommodate our busy schedules or to beat the rush.””Ricardo V.
“"We chose Betsy as our agent to list our parents home after four summers of having it on the market! Betsy sold our parents home in eight days! She also sold us our first home which just closed a week ago. We felt confident in Betsy's knowledge, ethics and follow through during the whole process. We absolutely love her! She goes above and beyond for her clients and we are going to miss speaking to her on a daily basis now that our escrow has closed.””Avery K.
