Our company represents over 50 years experience as exclusive buyer’s agents.
"We are listed as top buyers agents
Although each agent works independently, a strong team approach has led past clients to say they felt that they had the whole office working for them!
"Any of our agents can get you started with the kind of representation you want…you need… and you deserve.” - Jim Albert Real Estate LLC
“Agent of the Year” from 2000-2008, 2011. Although this quantitative achievement is a distinct honor, outstanding quality of service was and is the path to success. My area of expertise ranges from the first time buyer to the seasoned investment buyer. Years of construction experience and working in corporate sales after graduating from Northeastern University is a knowledge base every client needs.
Living in New Hampshire for most of my life and on the seacoast for the past 21 years has been wonderful. I met my wife here and started our family here on the seacoast. The area has grown in population yet has not lost its character and attraction. There are so many activities to explore and enjoy on the seacoast. My passions are family, fishing, boating and being there for my boys.
Home buying has changed significantly over the years. If you desire the eyes, ears, advice and guidance you always wanted and never received then look no further. If the seacoast is new for you or just a new local address and require an outstanding agent you can depend on to make your next investment the right one for you, your search is over and just begun.

When my previous employer transferred me to Portsmouth, NH it was love at first sight. I then proceeded to buy a home in Portsmouth using the services of Buyer's Brokers of the Seacoast. As a consumer it was the best Real Estate experience I had ever had!
After four years in the Portsmouth area my employer decided it was time to transfer me to a location outside of New England. It was there and then I knew it was time to 'just say no'. I wanted to stay on the Seacoast.....this was where I had to put down roots. I decided to earn my Real Estate license and join Buyer's Brokers of the Seacoast.
Becoming a Realtor who only works for Buyers has allowed me to fulfill a personal need to help people by being a consumer's advocate.
I pride myself on superior client service and I'm committed to the ethics of exclusive agency. Over the years I have helped 100’s of Buyers find their perfect home. Licensed in New Hampshire and Maine I provide service to all Real Estate Buyers whether they are first time buyers, vacation home seekers, investors, empty nesters, brand new construction or a waterfront dream home.
I have received many agency distinctions during my career including “Rookie of the Year”, “Top Quarterly Producer” and “Agent of the Year”. In my spare time I am an outdoor enthusiast enjoying both summer and winter activities. I also keep active in our Seacoast community through many volunteer efforts.

I am a native of New Hampshire and have owned a home in Rye for the past 13 years. My background includes a Bachelors Degree in Technical Management from Southern New Hampshire University and 20+ years in the business community working in the Purchasing/Operations Management field.
Being an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent means that my only goal is to help you find the property that’s right for you, regardless of which real estate agency has the listing. My commitment to you is that I will provide an unbiased presentation of all properties, assuring that your rights come first at all times. I will draw upon my experience in relationship building, project management, and contract negotiation, and will represent your best interests throughout the entire home buying experience.
Outside of work I enjoy playing golf, bike riding, trail running and daily walks on the beach with our golden retriever Otis.

I am so glad to be part of the family here at Buyer's Brokers of the Seacoast! I started here in 2001 and stayed for six years, however, as my children were still young, I felt the need to devote the growing years to them. My husband, Ron and I are proud of our two children, now teenagers, Connor and Mackenzie, although honestly we marvel every day how fast they grew up! During the interim, I enjoyed the time at home with my son and daughter, however, I love being back to work.
Although I have a BS in Management, my background is extensive in advertising and marketing and real estate. I have kept my NH Real Estate License these past years always knowing that my dedication to helping buyers find the right home and providing them with the services they need and protecting their rights throughout the home buying process is so very important. I am lucky that Jim Albert, my broker-owner, has allowed me to continue here knowing that I truly believe that an exclusive buyer agent is the the best choice for a buyer of real estate. With my varied background, I am also helping out in the advertising and administrative areas for the office. I look forward to everyday - life is a journey and mine is getting so much more interesting!

"Jim kept in frequent touch with me, understood my objectives, not pushy, very willing to show as many properties as I wanted to see. Jim was very thorough and made sure my interests were looked after. I was very pleased to work with him. I had the confidence of knowing that my agent was looking after my interests, and not in any way beholden to the seller through out all aspects of the transaction"

“My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with how Jim took care of us. Our only regret in finding a house sooner than expect was that we didn't get to work with Jim longer!

"I wanted an agent that would have my best interests in mind, not the sellers. Mike was always available when we needed him. He even called while on a family vacation. Mike was very patient and helpful, he walked us through every step. I would recommend his exclusive buyer agency services."
- Newmarket Homebuyers
"Walking around Portsmouth, we stopped in the office and found out about 'Buyer's Agents' with Mike...it was fate. Learning that Mike was working strictly for 'us'. He was enjoyable - no pressure - available on weekends. He only gave opinion when we asked and was always upbeat and willing to show us 1 or 10 houses. Working with Mike was a very enjoyable experience. We would recommend him because his service was excellent."
- Donald & Cindy Spencer
"Mike was so helpful & knowledgeable in the rental property/2nd home market, that my purchase & closing went off without a hitch. My first venture into the income property market was so successful that I decided to purchase a second rental property this year, using Mike again as my buyer's broker! I couldn't be happier with his attention to detail and if this property is as successful as the first, I will be back seeking Mike's services again!"
- Melissa M., Conway
“I selected a buyer’s agent because I used a buyer’s agent in the past and found it to be a good arrangement. Mike is personable, knowledgeable and a consummate professional. I can’t imagine having a better agent to work with. Hall-McGee Realtors, LLC is fortunate to have Mike on its team.”
- Kim Durling, Stratham
