"We feel so fortunate to have found Gail. Her credentials, professionalism, and vast knowledge of the real estate market in Hingham and the surrounding towns were readily apparent when we first met her. She exceeded all of our expectations when we actually began working with her. She was so patient as we looked at countless houses in Hingham over the course of many months. We appreciated that she focused right away on trying to understand our wants and needs instead of getting us to "settle" for what was currently on the market. In addition, she was very family-focused and understanding of the unique needs of young families like ours. In fact, our 3-year-old daughter still frequently asks about Gail and will refer to our new house as "Gail's house." When it came time to sell our Scituate house, Gail was amazing at advising us on how to stage the house and provided us with a thorough analysis of the best price point to list it. The house sold to the first couple who came to look at it. Gail's service did not end at the sale. She continues to provide us with recommendations for the best contractors, decorators, and restaurants in town. I firmly believe that Gail is the best realtor on the South Shore. She is fun and enjoyable to work with and has a great mix of constant professionalism with a personal touch."
"It is with the utmost pleasure and admiration of you that we write this. Your career and accomplishments speak for themselves, but it is the personal caring that set you apart. We had a very unique property to sell. You gave us wonderful advice as to necessary updates that would ultimately lead to a sale. Every single change made was met with positive feedback. Your professionalism never wavered - even when faced with some very challenging potential buyers. We are so happy with the family that purchased our home and expect to have a long term positive relationship with them. You made the negotiations and sale proceed seamlessly. We can't thank you enough for all you have done... we will highly recommend you to anyone and everyone thinking about buying and selling a home!"
"We feel very fortunate to have chosen Gail as our broker in both the buying and selling of our home(s). Gail separated herself right away from others by providing seamless expertise and knowledge of the market. From that point, she jumped right in helping us set the right price, stage our home to sell, design amazing online and print materials, accompany prospective buyers to every , and in the end being our anchor during the stress of the deal, and in our case deals. She offered wise and sounds advice and proved to be readily available despite the volume of business in her portfolio. Gail is an exceptional professional and her attention to the myriad details did not go unnoticed. We highly recommend her (and have!)."
"Gail and her team represented us on the sale of our home after several other local agents had the listing. We were a little concerned that Sotheby's didn't have an office in Norwell, but the exclusive international reach of the Sotheby's brand was very appealing to us and we felt their ability to reach a certain market segment was necessary to sell our property. In the end, it was Gail's efforts and expertise in putting together the correct professional staging, marketing, and excellent advice that sold our house for top dollar in this buyer's market. We would absolutely call on her again if we had the need for a true real estate expert. We would happily endorse her to anyone looking to buy or sell."
"Gail was our valued partner in the sale of our home. We were impressed not only with her analysis and experience but more importantly in her adroitness in working effectively with distinct personalities. There were multiple, difficult challenges that occurred throughout the process. challenges which may have derailed other sales. Gail thought creatively, and out of the box; an extent to which we have not observed with other realtors. She met each new challenge with a fortitude of character and grace that is truly unique. We always felt as if we were her only client, and the sale of our home her top priority. Our recommendation of Gail is unequivocal. Her strength, skill, and support were absolutely indispensable in the sale of our home."
"Our family decided to relocate from New York to the South Shore. We couldn't have been more fortunate to have found Gail Petersen Bell to represent us in the process. She spent a considerable amount of time finding us homes that fit our needs and found us a wonderful new home in Norwell. Since we were from out of state, Gail went above and beyond what we expected to help make the entire transition go smoothly. We highly recommend Gail to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home on the South Shore. Gail is an incredible asset to have in the search for a home, or selling an existing one, and we look forward to more business with her in the future."
"Gail helped us both in selling our home and buying a new one in Cohasset. She was always thoughtful, attentive and responsive. In selling our home, we found her to be very knowledgeable when it came to value and what people are looking for in a home. She gave us good tips on what we needed to do to get top dollar and it worked! We sold our home in a weekend for over asking the price! During the process of buying our new home, she helped us negotiate a good price and helped us through the whole process. She is also a pleasure to be around. We would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a good real estate agent in the area."
"Gail sold our house for us within a week of listing and for more than the asking price! Her suggested pricing was exactly positioned to elicit a bidding war, which is every seller's dream! Gail was extraordinarily calm in all situations and, as in all transactions, there were "bumps in the road", and she handled all with authority. Her advice on readying our home was excellent and the marketing pieces were beautiful! Gail was completely professional and incredibly thorough. We had planned on interviewing a few brokers. but once we met Gail, we canceled our other appointments, and we were extremely glad we did."
"Gail is a wonderful Realtor and her many years of experience are a great resource for her clients. Gail is the easiest, most pleasant Realtor we have ever worked with, always cheerful, and encouraging. We enjoyed working with Gail immensely. She kept us informed on prospective buyers' and sellers' needs and concerns and offered her help where necessary. She has a very friendly, empathetic personality, and was never pushy or demanding. We loved working with her, and highly recommend her to anyone who is planning to sell or buy a property."
"Though sales of upper brackets homes on the South Shore have been somewhat slow this past year, I want you to know that Gail Petersen Bell in Hingham managed to find me a buyer and to negotiate the first seven-figure sale in Whiting Village - as well as the second highest residential price in Hanover history. There was simply "no comparison between her level of professional expertise and effort and that of the first listing agent I tried. Should you be contemplating a sale in the coming months, I recommend that you contact Gail."
"We had an excellent experience working with Gail. She set clear expectations from the start, was always available to chat, and clearly understood the market. Whenever asked, she quickly provided us with reliable resources (plumbers, handymen, electricians, ) and held our hand throughout the showing, buying, and selling processes. Most importantly, she followed up on every lead until our house was sold!"
"Gail both helped our parents buy this home in 1989, as well as helped our family sell the home this past winter. She is a consummate professional with deep knowledge of the local market, excellent negotiating skills, and careful attention to detail. She was also extremely helpful with the many loose ends you might expect moving out of a treasured family home of 27 years. I would strongly recommend Gail."
"Gail is not only professional but her depth of experience proved invaluable when we sold our home in the Hingham MA area. Gail provided expert guidance to us about our home value, how to attract potential buyers, and helped us to prioritize in many areas. She is also very connected in the community, taking care of every detail from preparing for an open house to negotiating with buyers to navigating challenging closing. We highly recommend Gail Bell for her expertise and attention to detail."

"Gail Petersen Bell did a fantastic job pricing, marketing and ultimately selling our home. She was great about keeping us informed and updated throughout the process so we could price correctly, stage the property and arrange for all the other details for the ultimate sale. We were very pleased!"
"We appreciated working with Gail on our sale. Gail is, by far, the best person to sell an upper-end property in Cohasset and we expect she will be the #1 broker and office in Cohasset. We would be happy to supply an excellent reference to any prospective clients!"
