    I have been personally involved in the purchase of 12 homes over the last 10+ years. As a result I have been exposed to many realtors and I have never had the pleasure of working with one like George Cain . He possesses extraordinary local knowledge ,professionalism, responsiveness and is extremely diligent in research and negotiations . I would have no reservation recommending him to anyone looking for real estate in his area !!!

    George Cain is the best realtor we have worked with for the 6 homes we have bought or sold. His knowledge of the market is spot on. He is diligent in working with not only other realtors but with the home seller's by supporting their needs and requests. He is a good listener and will offer truthful suggestions based on his knowledge of the market and his years of experience. George builds a team approach to help in selling or buying a home and it works. We would highly recommend George Cain to any sellers or buyers of a home in the Berkshires.

    George was the best, I highly recommend him. Dealing with the VA was very complicated but George helped us navigate all the issues we ran into. He was in daily communication with us throughout the entire process.

    George provided expert guidance for us in finding a home in the Berkshires. He helped hone in on the features of the location, the house, and the property that were most important to us. Once we found a good fit, helped us put together a competitive bid that made sense, and then helped us navigate several potential obstacles that came up along the way. Overall, we feel that we had an excellent experience and are extremely happy with our home purchase.

    I have know George in various capacities for several years, as a neighbor, customer, and friend. When the time came to sell my mother's house, I knew right away which realtor I wanted to call - George Cain. I live in a community where there is a very strong and vibrant real estate market, in particular for the high end of the market. The clientele expects and demands a very high level of service and an equally high level of knowledge and professional experience. George made a comprehensive, formal sales presentation to my sisters and me. We signed the contract with full knowledge of what our respective responsibilities and expectations were. We made a plan and date for listing the property and what the pricing would be. George, through his network of contacts, and by the good graces of his professionalism and salemanship, succeeded in selling the property and our asking price almost immediately.George is meticulous on the follow through during the due diligence and closing process, and is unwavering in his commitment to secure the best price for his clients in the most fair and equitable way.George loves what he does and it shows.

    George Cain is the agent assigned me by Sotheby’s. We negotiated the terms of his service to help me in locating a suitable home to buy in the Amherst MA area. The agreement was voluntary, the only financial compensation being his fees from Sotheby’s and whatever the eventual seller would contribute. Despite my clear guidance George was stubborn in following his own path. If my preferences were unreasonable then he should tell me rather than persist in my making a 2.5 hour drive - which would almost certainly lead to disappointment. I found him pushy, glib and evasive. A truly frustrating experience. I told him my timetable was long to avoid buying in the colder months yet he continually pressed for quick action. He makes his money on sales but why force the client to do so much work only to be ignored? I have options, one of which is to find a different agent. Not a good representative of Sotheby’s. I forwarded our email exchange to the company for its assessment.
