An Award-winning & trusted agent, I look forward to helping you with all of your Real Estate needs. I grew up in the Pioneer Valley & have raised a family here. As a young adult, I fell in love with the idea of renovating an 1840s Farmhouse. It gave me plenty of hands-on experience restoring it top to bottom, inside & out.

An Award-winning & trusted agent, I look forward to helping you with all of your Real Estate needs. I grew up in the Pioneer Valley & have raised a family here.

My Client Reviews
Marcia is awesome! She is knowledgeable about both the area and real estate market. She made buying and selling a home an easy process. We knew we could always count on Marcia for honest advice and guidance. I highly recommend her.
Working with Marcia was amazing! Her coordinating efforts and negotiation skills were very-much appreciated. The sale of my late father's condo was very challenging as I live out of state and was not familiar with local regulations. Her kindness, patience and flexibility also provided support with a very difficult family dynamic. Highly recommend her to serve your Real Estate needs!
It's extremely rare that you find a realtor that "checks all the boxes", when you are looking to sell a house, but in this case Marcia checked them all! Her dedication and attention to detail, far exceeded my expectations. Her creative eye when it came to staging the house was incredible - she made it seem effortless. She is well known in the community and she gets things done! Extremely important when dealing with deadlines. These additional words need to be added to Marcia's strengths: thoughtful, informative, mindful, caring, and considerate of the seller's emotions. She has it all. It was such a pleasure to work with Marcia.
I cannot say enough about the professionalism and dedication Marsha Brooks exhibited doing the recent selling of our condominium in Amherst, Massachusetts. She was efficient and accommodating at all time. She had fabulous negotiating skills and quickly sold our property in less than 4 days, despite obstacles presented by the Homeowners Association. Personally, it was a great pleasure and a hassle free way to sell the condominium. She constantly went above and beyond my expectations and, certainly, I would recommend her to any and everyone. Anyone would be happy and satisfied having her as their realtor. She earned every penny she made for Cohn and Company and herself!
Marcia Brooks had the professional insight, initiative, and follow-through needed to help me sell the home of a family member. She carefully explored the home and property, and helped set a price that led to multiple offers. More importantly to me, Marcia knew the community, and knew whom to call regarding various issues such as Title V septic issues and well-water tests. She spent more time at the home meeting the various workers than I did, which was in addition to all of the time she spent with prospective buyers and agents. Marcia led me through the entire process of selling the home, from her first tour to the closing and celebrations. She was reliable and friendly, while offering candid assessments of the property and what we needed to accomplish. Her communication, availability, and presence were all essential for me to stay calm and confident through a somewhat complicated process. I fully recommend Marcia Brooks, and she will be my first call for any future real estate needs I have.
