Nancy Hamel, ABR, CRS, GRI, SRES, Amy R. Hamel, ABR, GREEN, Bachelor of Behavioral Sciences, Umass.


I was born and raised in neighboring South Hadley.  In 1978,  my husband Paul and I  moved to Amherst.  A Jones REALTOR® sold us our first house.  We raised our children, Aaron and Amy in this community, and it was a wonderful, welcoming place to grow up.  In 1995, when Amy started Amherst Middle School, I began my real estate career.  I have been helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs ever since.  I must add I have made many new friends along the way.

I was born and raised in Amherst and attended the Amherst Public Schools.  After graduating from ARHS, I took a year off and worked in Boston.   I subsequently attended Long Island University in NYC and transferred to UMass-Amherst where I graduated cum laude, earning a degree in Behavioral Sciences.   I assisted my Mom with real estate part-time while in college.   Upon graduation, I decided real estate was the career path I wanted to follow.

I learned from my Mom that we need to deliver the best service to our buyers and sellers because "our clients’ best interests come first.”

To Whom It May Concern:

I feel that a questionnaire does not warrant the recognition that the Hamel Team deserves. I have always been skeptical of realtors until now, thanks to the Hamel Team. I only do business with people through word of mouth and I could not be happier for being referred to Nancy Hamel.
The experience I had working with Nancy Hamel went beyond my expectations. Nancy Hamel has got to be the most devoted, hard working individuals that I have ever met. Nancy is not only professional but also a loving & caring individual.She was available every step of the way. In spite of complications that I encountered with my lender, the sale of my dream home came true. This would have never happened if it weren't for Nancy who stayed on top of everything. There were nights she worked at unprecedented hours to ensure that seller did not back out and that the bank prioritized my loan due to rigid deadlines. You have a gold mine for an employee who deserves the utmost recognition for the dedication that she puts into her profession. Nancy is truly one of a kind.
I can't go without mentioning her daughter, Amy Hamel. Although we mostly worked with Nancy, on the last day Amy was running around making sure that the closing happened. This truly is a dream team. They have earned a permanent and loyal client. I recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thank you for everything Nancy & Amy and Thank You Jones Group for hiring the best in the business.
Hilda Pons
The Hamel Team are highly, professional, well informed & most efficient. As both my Selling & Buying Agents, I would recommend this Team to everyone!
Andrea Greeley
Tim & I highly recommend Nancy & Amy Hamel! They are professional, knowledgeable, hard-working & flexible. They know the market and will give you an honest assessment of the strengths & weaknesses of your well as numerous local comparables that will help you determine an accurate offering price-a necessity in the current real estate market. They are well known in both the realty community & locally and know how to use their connections & technology to market your property well, creating interest even before you hit the market. They are organized & efficient regarding legal paperwork. When they say they will do something, they do it....without prodding or reminders.
They go far above and beyond what is required of them representing you. When your home is shown, even by other realtors,one of them is always present. When potential buyers wanted cost setimates for changes they might like to make in our property, Nancy & Amy had local contractors at our house in no time flat!
In addition, Tim & I have many friends who have worked with Nancy and Amy, both buying and selling, and have had nothing but positive experiences. You couldn't go wrong with this team.
Tim & Cathy Neale
Nancy-Thanks to you and Amy for the great job you did in representing our interests. Karen was right about the fact that you were the ones that could get it done. The Dimock team did a great job working with you.
Again, thank you for caring and working with us for a speedy sale and glad we were able to be part of your record breaking performance.
Chas and Jane Chase

The Hamel Team was efficient, responsible & effective. They were present from start to finish & guided me through many speed bumps that came up throughout this transaction.

I highly recommend this TEAM to anyone who wants to SELL their home!

I am very grateful to you for all the time, effort and personal attention you put into the project.

I was completely satisfied and grateful for Nancy’s help and support during this period. A great comfort for my elderly years, and a great reference for a mover, and for electrical work to be done by me beforehand. I got immediate service with Nancy’s referral after getting no replies for months.

Our agent, Nancy Hamel, is extraordinary. We were first time home buyers and Nancy was extremely patient and helpful to us during the entire process.
