About

 

What – me a REALTOR®?

I had no idea that I needed to spend decades preparing myself to be a service oriented, top producing realtor, whose mission it is to get quality results for my clients, namely the purchase or sale of a residential property in the Pioneer Valley. I began my career as a Ph.D. academic. I was lured to the Valley from the University of Washington via the University of Regensburg to become an Asst. Professor of German at U MASS. I loved publishing and teaching, and I fell in love with Wilfried Malsch, also a professor in the same department. We married, and had two children whom we raised here in Amherst. Raising children taught me the most, and the family remains the center of my life. I gave up my tenure track position, but I also continued my studies and teaching. I acquired both a 2nd B.A. and M.A. from UMASS in Spanish, and I taught both languages for a short time at Deerfield Academy.

In 1994 I made another life-altering decision to embark on the career of being a real estate agent, and for more than two decades now I have thrived in this role. To gain ‘street creds,’ so to speak, I started working with a group of able contractors in our Immanuel Lutheran Church to refurbish our parsonage. Throughout the years I have sold properties in every price range, from 100k to 1.5 million. Buyers seek me out because I lead them every step of the way through the process of purchasing a home, from financing to closing. Sellers seek me out to list their homes because of my stellar track record in sales over decades along with my marketing and promotional skills, including my Visual Tours. Referrals are, after all, the life blood of my business.

Also, since I live in a townhouse, I decided to become a specialist in selling condos in the Five College Area. Every year I send out mailings to each person in a condo association in Amherst with a synopsis of the sold/active/expired listings in their particular complex. This way I provide sellers and buyers with valuable, local market insights into selling or purchasing a condo in this area. In addition, I am a Director in the Echo Hill South Association, the first Planned Urban Development, commonly known as cluster housing, in the state of Massachusetts.

My education and experience come together in my role as sale's agent and REALTOR ® to serve you, my client better. I continue to hone my professional skills with the acquisition of specialized certifications:

CRS, Certified Residential Specialist, only 4% of Realtors Nationwide

ABR, Accredited Buyer’s Agent

GRI, Graduate Realtors’ Institute

SRES, Seniors’ Real Estate Specialist

e-PRO, NAR Certified Internet Specialist

SRS, Seller Representative Specialist

Member of the Professional Development/Education Committeein the RAPV (REALTOR®Association of the Pioneer Valley)

I also bring 25 years of distinguished experience to bear on serving my clients. I helped hundreds of buyers find their home as well as hundreds of home owners sell their property in the 5 College communities.

As a result, I have received repeated commendations and awards:

Premier Zillow Agent ranked in Top 3% nationwide with the 'Best of Zillow Designation'

Boston Top 20 Agents

Platinum Level Awardsfrom Realtor Association

Top Producer at Five College Realtors, LLC, Amherst

Top Producer at Prudential Sawicki Real Estate, Amherst

Top Producer at Delap Real Estate, LLC, Amherst & Northampton Top Producer amongst all residential sale’s agents in Amherst
Ranked amongst 2-4 Top Producers in Franklin and Hampshire Counties many times
My commitment is to guide you successfully through a transaction with integrity and honesty, and my success is measured by your satisfaction. So please call upon me for yourself, or refer me to your family and friends. It would be an honor to be your REALTOR® for life!

When I had big problems with my house you had problem solvers at the ready! . . . That’s why I chose Sally . . . I was very impressed with your work ethic, experience and network of professionals.

Your professionalism, "can-do” attitude & persistence, not to mention consistently charming manner, all worked marvelously to our benefit. I made a very good decision the day I followed Ray’s suggestion to get in touch and become acquainted. Let’s do more! Hahaha!

George and Ruth Wade

- Sally worked tirelessly on our behalf during the entire process of selling our house. She did everything possible to market the house in a tough real estate market. We have worked with other realtors and never before witnessed a realtor with a stronger work ethic. Sally is a bit like the "Energizer bunny.” She never stops until she sells your house! Moreover, Sally was kind, thoughtful, and ethical. We couldn’t have found a better realtor.

 

Ray and Eve Webster

- Sally was wonderful!!

 

Margarta Russotto

- My agent, Sally Malsch, is wonderful, efficient, patient, smart and always available.

 

Ed and Emma Stamas

- Over the last several years Sally has been helping us look for the perfect place to retire to in the Pioneer Valley. After looking at many different properties, she found the perfect one for us and helped us negotiate and close on the property successfully. She also helped us find local people to do various tests and inspections. She was very knowledgeable and diligent, as well as enjoyable, to have as both a friend and realtor.

 

Patricia Correia

- I appreciated having you represent my interests in the selling of my house in Amherst. My good fortune was having you as my agent. Your depth of understanding and your steadiness of purpose led to the best outcome that could be hoped for in a difficult market. In the end I have been able to accomplish my goal, and I realize I have much to be grateful for.

 


Louise and Doug Colligan

- Doug and I want to thank you so much for the years of showing us various condos. You were wonderful and helpful throughout, never pushing condos on us that weren’t right. This one seems to be. Thank you also for your many recommendations, Harvey and various other tradesmen.

Sara, Steve and Zak Tanne

- Steve, Zak & I wanted to thank you so much for all your help. We're so glad that after researching top selling area realtors, we decided to place the sale of our home in your very capable hands. In the time it took you to photograph & post our house on line, other realtors were still promising to get back to us. We especially liked the fact that not only are you an experienced & consistent top seller, but work as a realtor full time. You were there for us whenever we needed you and for this we are deeply grateful.

On a personal level, I sincerely appreciated your calming influence when times got tough. This process was a tremendous burden for me and your common sense and perspective helped me greatly throughout the process.

When I hear the less than satisfactory experience that many friends have had with other realtors and agencies, again I am grateful that we put the important task of selling our home in your hands.

We wish you continued success in real estate and many happy visits with your daughter and her family.

With all our gratitude,

Sara, Steve & Zak Tanne
