A Few Words From Happy Clients!
Liz sold my mother's house when she needed to go to assisted living. She did an amazing job so when my wife and I decided to move from California to Portsmouth, NH, I asked her to help me look for a house. After a year and a half of looking, we finally decided on a brand new stand alone condo. It was quite a challenge to find the perfect house on-line and sight unseen. Liz couldn't have been more helpful, acting as liaison between me and the construction company and guiding me through the whole process. She was right there with answers to all my questions. She is vey knowledgeable about the industry and knows the local area very well. I give her my highest recommendation. Thank you, Liz!!

(Superlative advisory, lots of them to follow:) Within two hours of working with Liz Levy-Pruyn as our realtor, it was clear that this was an agent operating at the very highest level of skill, imagination and achievement. Real Estate is a field that traditionally attracts high-energy, multi-tasking, smart-negotiating go-getters. People who “go the extra mile.” Well, Liz is certainly all those things, but she doesn’t go the extra mile, no — Liz Levy-Pruyn STARTS at the extra mile. I think that for her, crushing the search, and the offer, and the negotiation, and the closing, and all the hand-holding are all the very LEAST that she demands of herself. For her, the job is really about people, about how emotions can affect decisions, about the roles that fear, calmness, desire, and tenacity play in negotiation. These are ineffable factors that only long experience and a staggering record of successes can allow an agent to manipulate. There appears to be nothing that throws her. We had a few delays (no fault of hers) but there wasn’t a single moment that Liz hadn’t fully disclosed the situation and what she was doing about it. No mysteries, no down-playing problems, not over-selling achievements. Liz Levy-Pruyn is a perfect adult and that’s how she treats her clients. Highly effective, empathetic, great sense of humor, great communication, great hang, GREAT RESULTS…shall I go on? Thank you, Liz Levey-Pruyn. - John H. - Damariscotta, ME
Wow, just wow. My wife and I are first time homebuyers, buying a home in some of the craziest market conditions. All I can say is that the process of finding, evaluating and buying our dream home with Chris and team was amazing. He was so helpful, so knowledgeable, so responsive. I can't recommend him highly enough if you are looking to buy your next home. Thanks so much Chris for everything. You've made this entire experience such a delightful memory for my family and me! - Kyle F., Kittery, ME
Liz and her team at Seacoast Dwellings are absolutely the best, hands down. Our experience working with Liz was wonderful, from buying our new house to staging and selling our old. She was there at every step along the way, offering her insight and experience which allowed us to really feel comfortable about the offer we made and the one we accepted. If you're looking for an agent in the area, look no further, she's the one! I cannot stress how integral she was in helping us throughout our home buying/selling journey and I cannot recommend her and her team enough. They deserve more than just the 5 star rating! -Mike V., Portsmouth, NH
Hire Liz. By the time we purchased our new house, the seller's agent offered her a job :-) We jumped into a crazy (aren't they all?) deal and called Liz to help us navigate the terrain of an out-of-state As-Is sale that needed to be submitted within 24 hours! It was madness. But Liz's extensive experience lent a steady reasonableness to the process. Her experience is reflected in the close and savvy attention to each and every detail and way of thinking about the myriad elements of a home purchase. She recommends strategy based on integrity and common-sense. She is bold but never reckless and infinitely reasonable throughout a potentially emotional process. She is warm and funny and firm in the tough passages. Her willingness to jump in and rumble, to be fair, smart and honest is unrivaled.
- Margaret W. Damariscotta, ME
Chris was phenomenal! We could not have asked for a better realtor. He was extremely responsive, kind, insightful, available, enjoyable to work with and an all around great person. He took time to really understand our needs and hopes for our home and had great insights on the areas we were interested in. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy a home. - Jenn F., Kittery, ME
We have worked with Liz on multiple properties in the Kittery and Portsmouth area. She is the go to person in Portsmouth Real estate!! She has insights into availability, experience on pricing and a true professional. I would recommend Liz for any side of a transaction. She makes process seamless and as painless as possible. - Kimi I., Portsmouth, NH
Liz and her team were fabulous in helping us sell our home. We were pleased with her professionalism and responsiveness throughout the process. We felt supported and the outcome was more than we could have hoped for. I look forward to working with her and her team again! -Lynn O. Kittery, ME
I would highly recommend Chris as a realtor. I recently purchased and closed on my first multi-unit property with his help. The entire transaction was very easy and he was able to answer any of my questions. Chris was extremely professional and proactive in assisting me in the highly competitive real estate market. His knowledge really helped me land on a great property. I really enjoyed working with and talking to him. I will definitely be using Chris and his real estate services for any future real estate transaction. - Matt C., Dover, NH
Liz and her team were flawless in guiding us through the recent sale of our home. Liz presented her vision of how to achieve an optimal outcome based on our goals and timeline and then delivered with professionalism and success. She was always responsive, thoughtful, respectful of our feedback, and helpful –above and beyond expectations. Her expertise, intuition, energy, and commitment to her work allowed us to feel very confident that we were in the best hands. My husband and I will recommend her to others without reservation. - Kathy M. Portsmouth, NH
Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with. Chris is personable and easy-going, always on time, and amenable to last-minute changes in our schedules. We came to rely on Chris's perceptive eye during open houses and appointments. Chris saw the things we did not - issues like roofing, window, and plumbing concerns; water stains; aging water and heating systems; slightly odd odors. So when Chris agreed we had found a strong buying opportunity, we trusted his judgment. The home we eventually bought is perfect for our family. People talk of the stress of buying a home. We did not feel that stress, in large part thanks to the excellent support we received from Chris. -Heidi Y. Nottingham, NH
Liz Levey-Pruyn has all the amazing qualities sellers and buyers need in a real estate agent. Liz is extremely knowledgeable and incredibly responsive (regardless of the hour). She has amazing vision, fabulous people skills and is a pleasure to work with. Liz provides an insight into staging your house that is unmatched and will maximize your value. She knows the market and can educate and inform you as you consider a purchase or sale. Liz’s colleague Polly is easy to work with, keeps everything on track, and gently makes sure that nothing falls through the cracks. We have and will continue to recommend Liz Levey-Pruyn and her team to anyone who is planning to buy or sell real estate. - Sharon P. Portsmouth, NH
Chris helped us find and buy our dream home in a challenging market. My husband and I were first-time home buyers and Chris was patient with all my questions and helped us throughout the whole process. He helped us create a strong offer which ultimately led to a successful purchase! I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase a home, he is responsive, hardworking, and knowledgeable. - Genevieve R. Kittery, ME
I had a great purchasing experience with Chris. He is very knowledgeable about the seacoast area and really went above and beyond to follow up on open questions and requests. I would highly recommend working with Chris if you're looking for someone with a high level of attention to detail. - Janie W. Kittery, ME
Liz and her team are superior at what they do. She/they were extremely responsive, very professional, and incredibly knowledgeable. In addition, she truly cares about her clients! She is a treasure and the one you want to buy or sell your home! You will be in the best of hands! - Elizabeth J. Durham, NH
I write this in April of 2021. I closed in October 2020. If you are wondering what in the heck took me 6 months to write a review, listen closely. Despite this being a “seller’s market”, the act of selling a house is hard. Buying a house is even more difficult. Doing both in 30 days is absolute madness. The kind of madness that mental health documentaries are made of. Just because your neighbor’s sister sells real estate or a coworker’s second cousin just got their RE license does not mean they are a real estate professional. Sure, they can buy and sell houses...just like anyone can “sing”. Do you want Celine Dion to sing at your next gig or Alfalfa from The Little Rascals?
It has taken me six months to write this because my family did the impossible in 30 days. We sold, we bought, and closed on the same day in the wildest real estate market many have ever seen. When there’s unforeseen mold, a questionable septic system, and actual shag carpet...Liz will talk you off the ledge. She’ll connect you with resources, micromanage you because you are a hot mess (I have SIX kids), and, and get $130K more for your house than another very respected realtor said you would. Seriously.
I cannot recommend Liz and her team enough. Call her. Meet her. She classy, sassy, and brilliant.
- Arial & Gary S. -Newfields, NH
It was an absolute pleasure working with Chris and the rest of the team. He was down to earth, which helped relieve a lot of the stress of being a first-time homebuyer. We never felt pressured or neglected. Chris provided us with consistent support, reliable information, and an expert opinion. I would definitely recommend Chris and the team to anyone looking for a realtor. Jenna H. -Nottingham, NH
We had a fantastic experience with Chris. He was knowledgeable, listened to what we wanted, and was very responsive to our needs. Chris went above and beyond for us. We moved from out of state and asked Chris to help with a few things that we were not able to do. He came through on everything. We would highly recommend Chris and the Seacoast Dwellings Team to everyone looking for the best!! - Steve and Melissa F. Portsmouth, NH
Liz and her team are amazing. They take control of the process and make it as painless as possible. They always responded to my questions promptly. Their pictures and marketing were fantastic. I would highly recommend them! -Nancy N. Eliot, ME
We loved working with Liz! Right off the bat, she filled us in on all the communities we were considering. Always responsive to calls and emails, she helped us find just the right place to live, took us step by step through the purchase negotiations and the mortgage process, and provided a checklist of due dates that was invaluable. We were very lucky that friends highly recommended her. -Carol C. Portsmouth, NH
I have engaged Liz and her team twice (both buying and selling) and have been consistently happy with their service and professionalism. They were always prompt in responding to anything that arose and they went the extra mile to assist with whatever tasks needed doing to complete the transaction. Liz is so experienced and provides sage and frank advice to guide both buying and selling decisions. She has been in the business for decades for a reason - I unreservedly recommend Liz and her team!
-Polly H. Portsmouth, NH
Liz has been incredible to work with. She guided us through the process of buying a home with confidence, always keeping us aware of things we should ask and issues we should be aware of. She was always available for questions and always had insightful opinions. She also has a very pleasant demeanor which is especially helpful when one is making a big decision such as buying a new home. Not only is she very knowledgeable about the process of buying a home but she presents this information in an easy to understand manner. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
-Jason C. Portsmouth, NH
We worked with Liz and her team for the 2nd time in the last 5 years to sell/buy a home and in both cases, they demonstrated the value of having a true professional real estate team on your side when negotiating a home purchase or sale. If you are looking to list or buy a home in Portsmouth we would highly suggest that you consult Liz prior to deciding on an agent to represent you.
-Aaron G. Portsmouth, NH
Liz and her team are simply the best! They made the whole process of selling effortless & fast!
She is extremely knowledgeable of the current market. We have referred her to family and friends. She delivered. Her connection to the community allows her to know what's out there before it's out there! She listened to what we were looking for and found our current dream home!
-Kristen P. Portsmouth, NH
Liz and her team did a great job throughout the home buying process. From searching to making an offer to getting to closing, Liz's team was helpful and responsive every step of the way particularly when things did not go quite according to plan. I highly recommend Liz and her team for anyone looking for a new home on the seacoast. -Ryan W. Portsmouth, NH
Liz, Chris and her whole team were outstanding and helped us find and purchase the perfect home for us. Extremely professional and fun to work with. Their expertise in real estate, commitment to their clients, amazing attitudes and superb communication helped us find and buy our new home. We couldn't have accomplished this without their determination to make this a reality for us. We had so much fun working with them and it was a truly a pleasure working with such an incredible team. We would highly recommend Liz, Chris and the whole team who made everything so easy.
-Lori F. Exeter, NH
Liz is the real deal. That goes for her team as well. There's no hint of game playing, but a savvy understanding of the games people play. Her knowledge of laws and regs governing the real estate market is extensive and she is honest when there is something she doesn't know. If an issue arises, the team responds immediately. Our property was not a quick sale in a quick sale market but the team stayed right on it with us. Our gratitude is deep. -Mary Pat K. Kittery, ME
Liz was excellent to work with. She is super professional and knowledgeable. Her responsiveness was top-notch. If I ever need someone again, I'll be calling Liz. - Brian O. Portsmouth, NH
Liz acted as a dual agent when we purchased our first home – her experience was really invaluable. She and her colleagues at RE/MAX kept things running smoothly and answered all of our many, many questions. Highly recommend her! -Kevin G. Kittery, ME
Chris and his whole team were outstanding and helped us find and purchase the perfect home for us. Extremely professional and fun to work with. Their expertise in real estate, commitment to their clients, amazing attitudes and superb communication helped us find and buy our new home. We couldn't have accomplished this without Chris’s determination to make this a reality for us. We had so much fun working with him and it was a truly a pleasure working with such an incredible team. We would highly recommend him and his whole team who made everything so easy. Review for Chris Jacobson. -Paul F. Exeter, NH
Liz was awesome to work with as our selling agent. She is friendly, professional and very positive!! She was easy to communicate with, always available for questions, and extremely knowledgeable. When the stress was setting in, she could always provide a sense of calm, and that things were going to workout!! I would highly recommend her!!! She's the best:) -Lisa C. Kittery, Me
We interviewed (3) very experienced realtors and choosing Liz was easy. Her presence is very distinguishable. She exudes professionalism and confidence. We listed right at the beginning of COVID and there was a lot of uncertainty. She expertly charted uncharted waters. Everything was different but she performed magnificently. Her attention to CDC guidelines and concern for keeping us safe was impressive. We quickly entered into a contract. The transaction was beyond challenging but she stayed the course and brought us to a quick and very acceptable closing. I've been involved in multiple real estate transactions and few if any realtors could have executed the complexity of our transaction on this particular property. She is that good!! -Robert C. Kittery, ME
We are so happy we met Liz at an open house and decided to work with her. As first-time home buyers, we were quite unfamiliar with the process but we put our trust in Liz and wound up with a beautiful home that is the perfect fit for us. Liz guided us every step of the way and was incredibly knowledgable about each part of the process. She understood our priorities on what we were looking for in a home and gently steered us to what we were looking for, as we got a feel for the market. I'm truly grateful our paths crossed with Liz and we had the opportunity to work with her!
-Lindsey S. Portsmouth, NH
We found the perfect house for us, but in this fast-moving market, I am certain we wouldn't have gotten it without the help of Liz Levey-Pruyn. Liz secured the first viewing of the house we were interested in and expertly advised us on how to best structure our offer. She walked us step-by-step through the process, and was always responsive and knowledgeable. Liz has a great sense of humor and style, and she always kept moving things forward until we got the keys to our new home. -Brooke W. Kittery, ME
Liz, Chris, and her team helped us purchase our first home, and we are extremely satisfied with their service. Liz provided us a thorough tutorial on home buying, which we needed. Our interactions with her team were pleasant, efficient, and well organized. Most importantly, we trusted Liz and her opinions. When the right house came on the market, she helped us act quickly and kept things on track through the closing. Buying or selling, we will use Liz again.
-D. Stevens, Portsmouth, NH
It was truly a pleasure to work with Liz in the process of buying our home and we enthusiastically recommend her. Liz is incredibly knowledgeable of the market and often got us in to see homes before they were listed which was crucial. She was always so quick to respond and set up showings. She learned our needs and desires and was patient with us as they changed. Liz became our trusted advisor through the process. We can’t thank and recommend Liz enough.
-Devan Q. Portsmouth, NH
Chris helped my fiance and I purchase a home in Exeter, NH as first time home buyers. Chris was so helpful throughout the process, and especially during COVID. Chris helped provide valuable market insight for our offer, and provided a timeline for closing to help us manage/navigate all the associated tasks. -Andrew V. Exeter, NH
Liz embodies every attribute of an exceptional real estate representative. She works to understand her client's priorities and then actualizes results. She understands the real estate space both strategically (understanding the market and negotiating on your behalf) as well as practically (understanding tradeoffs and strengths and weaknesses of a specific property, and ensuring every i is dotted and t crossed throughout the process).
I unequivocally recommend that you choose to work with Liz and look forward to working with her for my future real estate needs. -Kristen L. Rye, NH
We could not have been happier with our experience using Liz to help us purchase our new home in Portsmouth! We recently moved to Portsmouth after living for many years in Boston. We had found a home we were interested in purchasing and we were hoping to move quickly given the hot market. Liz stepped right in and met us for a showing the very next day! Her responsiveness was consistent throughout the entire home buying process. In addition, Liz and her team were proactive in helping us keep a list of important dates (including follow up close to those dates), helping us schedule the inspection, attending walk throughs with contractors following the inspection and more. We were new to the New Hampshire real estate market and Liz walked us through the process in detail. She was able to provide us with guidance on the Portsmouth real estate market, neighborhoods, even right down to recommending a tailor! We highly recommend Liz and will use her for our Seacoast needs going forward! -Jill M. Portsmouth, NH
Liz was very friendly, honest, and knowledgeable. She helped us find our first home! We looked for almost a year. She was constantly sending us new houses as they came on the market. She took us to see any house we asked about. When we were going through the buying process, she helped answer all the millions of questions we had. She never made me feel silly for asking any of them either! I would highly recommend her and her team if you are buying a house in the area! - Carrie K. Portsmouth, NH
Liz and her team were great every step of the way. We appreciated her perspective on each property we viewed and she helped us understand the process as we moved along. Patient and knowledgeable with answers to our 10,000 questions. -Dylan S. Portsmouth, NH
I've been working with Liz for many years. We actually met working for a local non-profit whose mission is hunger relief. Her values and care for the community extend well beyond business. She stays on top of the transaction process, is quick to respond to all inquiries, and has vast knowledge about the process as well as the area. Definitely a great advocate for her client. - Michael L., Kittery, ME
Liz Levey-Pruyn is a master at every aspect of buying and selling homes. She understands the market and also thinks creatively. Her expertise, efficiency, and genuine caring make this monetary and emotional transaction a professional experience. We give her the highest recommendation without reservation. There is a reason her name is synonymous with best seacoast realtor.- Mary and Art A. - Portsmouth, NH
This is my second transaction with Liz, and in the intervening three years I have received a steady, well-curated flow of possibles. She is always prompt to arrange a home viewing or to discuss a property on short notice, and on several occasions has brought properties that fit my spec to my attention before they were on the market. Tied in well with the community, she is deeply familiar with neighborhoods, trends, prices, demand, and who to go to for whatever one might need, from zoning to post-sale home improvements. Before moving to Portsmouth, I've bought and sold five homes, worked with a half dozen realtors, and Liz is the clear front-runner for overall results and tenacity and professionalism. Liz can count on my business next time!- Randy S., Kittery, ME
Liz is a true pro that we'd recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. After helping us sell our condo and purchase a home about 6 years ago, we knew exactly who to call when it was time for another home sale and purchase. Liz not only helps you navigate the complex world of real estate with confidence and superior insight, she genuinely cares about you as a person. She is prompt, has impeccable attention to detail, and always leaves you feeling she has your back and will do what's right for her clients. I can't say enough about Liz and her team, and will most certainly send her any referrals I have in the future. -Chris and Jim E., Exeter, NH
It has been a pleasure working with Liz to sell our home and purchase our new condo. Her compassion, understanding and professionalism on our roller coaster of a journey is very much appreciated. Thanks to all her support, even the COVID-19 outbreak was just a bump in the road for us and our closings proceeded as scheduled. - Dave and Theresa G., Portsmouth, NH
We purchased and later sold our Portsmouth home with Liz. We wholeheartedly recommend her for either side of the real estate transaction. Liz knows the Seacoast market well, which helped us as we sought to buy in a very competitive market. As our listing agent, Liz went above and beyond, marketing our home in a myriad of ways, offering staging advice and hosted well attended, open houses, all to find the right buyer for our unique home. Liz is honest, responsive, incredibly hard working, pays attention to all the details, and in our case went above and beyond as we had to show our home after a stovetop fire required a complete kitchen renovation while on the market! Liz remained positive and committed through thick and thin, we love her energy and her enthusiastic spirit! You are working with the best when you have Liz on your team!
– DiLalla Family, Portsmouth, NH
Liz and her team were fantastic! They were knowledgeable, quick to respond, and very professional. Great experience and very happy buyers!

Liz has every quality that you look for in a top-notch realtor. She is patient, responsive, honest, and tenacious (when necessary). Because of Liz's hustle, we were able to find an off-market listing in a desirable location. My wife and I would highly recommend working with her for your next purchase or sale. – Anthony Zanetti, Rye, NH
Liz is a whiz. She is extremely knowledgeable of the market in the Seacoast and is a good listener. She was respectful of our wishes and provided strong guidance on how we could achieve our goals for our move. When the time came for quick, strong, negotiations she was there and helped us seal the deal. – David Burdick, Portsmouth, NH
My fiancé and I could not be happier with the service Liz provided in helping us buy our first home! Liz was always available to answer our questions and would share all of her knowledge with us! We would highly recommend! – Ashley Linane, So. Berwick
Even though we know a few realtors in our area we were interested in someone closer to Portsmouth. Honestly, I contacted you because you had just sold in the same neighborhood and had experience. But, It was obvious from our first meeting we picked a great realtor who communicated, worked on our behalf, honest and very hard-working. We couldn’t be happier and will recommend you and your team whenever we can.
- Todd and Paula Rozelle, Portsmouth NH
Bottom line, if you want to sell your home in a timely fashion and for the most part hassle free, this is your agent. Liz is realistic, straight forward and keeps things moving. Clearly she understands this market and makes an effort to understand her clients and how to work best with her clients individual style. It was a pleasure working with her.
