"Working with Sky was a great experience!! Being a first time home buyer she was very thorough in explaining the process and she was sure to keep all the moving parts on track to reach the close date!! Highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs!
Michele (Norwalk, CT)
"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sky! She is exceptionally responsive, knowledgeable about the local community, and has a warm and down-to-earth personality. She is thorough, patient, professional, and a good communicator. She approached each home she showed me with enthusiasm yet was honest about potential drawbacks--she has an impressive knowledge of the "inner workings" of a house too! Sky was never pushy and it was clear my needs were her first priority. When my first deal fell through she advocated on my behalf, and scoured the remaining available listings to help me find something else. She was tenacious in arranging another showing and incredibly flexible in terms of getting me in at the eleventh hour, literally that very night! She truly understands the current market and the need to move quickly. The process was very challenging but she kept things positive and in the end everything worked out for the best!! Since the closing she has been an invaluable source of helpful referrals as well. I can't say enough good things about Sky and I highly recommend her!"

"I worked with Sky on both the sale of one home and the purchase of another. She was absolutely amazing. We followed all of her advice on the sale of our home and we got an a great price and she negotiated everything we needed so that we could stay there while searching for our next home.
With the purchase of our new home she was incredibly patient with us through the whole process. We were looking for a horse property and it was not an easy market to find what we wanted. She was incredibly knowledgeable and provided us with honest advice on each property we saw. I always felt she had our best interest at heart.
Then our purchase was more complicated then your average purchase, and she navigated the situation so well, explaining everything to us and helping us make the right decisions at every turn. She had just so much patience and always took the time to talk us through the situation. I couldn't have asked for a better agent."
K. Duarte (Douglas, MA)
"Sky was wonderful to work with, always responsive, and brought with her a lot of specific knowledge that was super helpful for us given the type of property we were looking for. We had asked her to pull off a fairly challenging task: moving with our kids and animals, during the pandemic, with the added complexity of being out of state for the house hunting exercise (while also attempting to sell our current home). She went above and beyond to get us the necessary information, record/stream video of promising homes and help us with the new (to us) by-laws and rules in the new state. We thought we pulled off the impossible, given the timing and circumstances, and we owe a lot to Sky in being kind, patient and persistent. Sky was a true professional throughout the process and with her honest opinions and we always felt Sky was looking out for our best interests. We would highly recommend Sky without hesitation and will definitely be recommending Sky to all of our friends and family who are looking for a home in the future."
Jay and Sheila (Hopkinton, MA)
"We cannot say enough great things about Sky! She is an exceptionally hard worker, is easily accessible, conducts herself with the utmost degree of professionalism while also being extremely approachable and friendly, is incredibly knowledgeable about real estate and the process, and is a creative, out-of-the-box thinker. We had a few unique challenges to our property acquisition, and Sky never once presented an issue without also presenting a workable solution. Our property purchase was a little more complex than most, and Sky was with us every step of the way. We truly believe that you would be lucky to have representation as wonderful as Sky Minckler!!
Sara Fingeret West, Touchstone Farm LLC
"Simply put, Sky is amazing. We feel incredibly fortunate to have hired Sky as our realtor and are very happy with the end result. We had numerous unique criteria for the type of property we sought; this greatly limited the number of options and made finding the right home challenging. Sky was relentless in her search to identify properties matching these criteria. With each property we visited, Sky paid close attention to what excited us, and was also quick to point out potential drawbacks. This process helped us further clarify our own priorities for a home and further refine our search. Through our process it was evident that Sky takes the time to get to know her clients and has her client?s best interests as her highest priority. Sky is an expert communicator with an impressive knowledge of the breadth and nuance of real estate, and in particular, farm properties. She calmly fielded endless phone calls, texts, and emails. She was also quick to follow up with third-parties who could provide information on properties and our future planning beyond visits. We met Sky months ago as a realtor who we provided with a difficult task. Today have a beautiful property with a vision.
Danielle Haley & Peter Balvanz (Equine Buyer MA)
We HIGHLY recommend Sky. Especially if you are looking for a horse property. We had no intentions of selling our home as quickly as we did but when the right property comes along, you jump! While viewing our potential home, Sky's equine knowledge helped us make decisions on the property that we never would have thought of with another realtor. From use of space, paddock set up, toxic foliage, etc. Even inside the house, Sky was able to help us look past imperfections to what we could do with the space. It was great to have such input without being overly pushy. You can tell Sky truly LOVES what she does!! Under Sky's guidance, we had our house ready for the market within 4 days. It sold in less than 2 days with 7 offers - 5 being over our asking price! Buying our dream home was a breeze as well. While we hit some rough patches along the way, Sky tackled these issues head on, efficiently and was successful in overcoming each of our challenges. She hooked us up with an awesome mortgage lender and was by our side the entire process. Even during our final walk through we found a few "issues" and she brought them up promptly at closing which took care of the problems. We are almost settled into our new home, our dogs love our land, our horses are coming home soon, and we couldn't be happier! Thank you Sky!!
Casey Mabardy (Buyer and Seller MA & NH)
"We are so glad we had Sky to work with. With selling our home the process was simple, painless and quick! She priced it right and got the word out and it sold quickly! For our new home... We were looking for something very specific and we had a lot of boxes that needed to be checked. Sky showed us so many houses over the course of almost a year, she was so patient, never pushy and found us a new house that we love! She gave great advice and was just willing to help out how we needed her to! We highly recommend Sky.
