Biography

Richard and I have been fortunate to come to New Hampshire and to raise our family here.  This state has been our home for many years and we never plan to leave!  It is a joy to work with people to find just the right place for them and to settle into a new home and often a new town and help them become part of that community as we did. We built our family business on honesty, integrity, outstanding customer service and hard work.  That’s what I bring to you.  Being affiliated with a well known and respected name and family-run, local business  – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty - gives me the tools to help you make the right choice in buying a home or selling your current property.  I know the market and the southern NH communities. 

I was the Executive Director of the Souhegan Valley Chamber of Commerce in Amherst for eight years and served as interim Executive Director at Greater Peterborough Chamber to during a transition period. 

Over the years I have served in a number of volunteer capacities with athletic programs and community support. I have been involved in education on a statewide basis, served on the school board that developed and built Souhegan High School and was a director on the Board of the National PTA. Governor John H. Sununu appointed me to his Steering Committee for Excellence in Education. I was honored to be awarded Citizen of the Year 2012 for Amherst and one of the Twenty-Five Outstanding Women in Nashua in 2013 by the Nashua Telegraph.  I am a member of the Milford Rotary Club and serve as Assistant Secretary on their Board of Directors. Team Balsama was voted #1 Real Estate Team in the Souhegan Valley Region in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. I have achieved Honor Society status with the BHHS company.

I will work with you and for you to find “The Way to Your New Home”!

Testimonials

May has a wealth of real estate knowledge. She is professional and kind and is very easy to work with. We love her and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced agent!

- Heather Bertolami

May was great and very patient to find out what we wanted and went out of her normal are to assist us in getting our forever home in this crazy market

- Maureen K. Santanello

May was great and patient and helped us find and negotiate getting our forever home. This was not our first home purchase actually more than 5. She drove to parts of the state that were not near her but she never hesitated to get us to where we wanted to go. She was able to listen to what we wanted and needed and help us find it when we were unfamiliar with the state. She always had a smile and offered advice when we asked but did not tell us what we should do. she was great.

- Maureen K. Santanello

Terrific agent with the utmost integrity. What more could one want!

- Leonard Gerzon, TTEE

May Balsama was great! She found our dream home during very unusual market conditions spurred by a global pandemic in which we almost lost hope. After viewing over 20 homes and countless offers, May never capitulated as her tenacity, grit and creating thinking enabled us to find a home in a town far exceeding our expectations! I highly recommend May Balsama and John Poirier at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty! Jay Figaro

May is amazing. She was so helpful. We knew we wanted to work with her from the first conversation ( we had already spoke with many but never had the same feeling). She was there for every question ( and I had many). She not only very knowledgeable but is so kind and patient. You are lucky to have her in your company. I will refer her to anyone I know looking to buy a home in New Hampshire. Thanks again May, we appreciate you!!!

- Debra Gallant

May was fabulous to work with through the process of purchasing our commercial location. She helped us navigate through the real estate process, the inspection process and even through the variance process we needed with the town! Our purchasing process took about 6 months with delays on both sides, and May stayed with us through everything, providing guidance as well as much needed encouragement at times. We are grateful for her help and support through this long process. We can truly say, 'We have a new location and we couldn't have done it without May!'

- Rev. Karen Manchester, Treasurer

May was a fierce advocate and guide through an extremely difficult process with an obstructive seller. I can't imagine ever using another agent in the future.

We were very satisfied with May. Her market knowledge for the area is very strong, and she offered ideas on marketing and positioning the house for sale that were creative and thoughtful. She tends to set values high, but in this case we believe it ultimately resulted in a sale that came in at a level where other agents were just starting. Her connection to the area is a real asset to any buyer or seller in the Souhegan Valley.

May sold our primary residence last year for full asking price in one day. She was the first one we called when we decided to buy. We couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable Realtor.

Hi May, Just wanted to let you know how great it was working with you. Ive been in the business 30 years and Ive never seen such a hard working Buyers Agent work so diligently for her buyer to obtain this home. You literally had to jump through hoops and you did it. In the end the Sellers, The Buyers, and both you and I walked away very happy. And in this business thats what its all about!!!!!
