With over 25 years of proven experience in sales, marketing, negotiation, and strategic thinking, I am committed to making your real estate transaction as enjoyable and seamless as possible. Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions you will make and you want to work with someone that you can trust. I am committed to making sure every client feels that they are receiving superior personalized service and honest communication throughout the entire real estate transaction.

Growing up in Westport, a coastal town in Connecticut, I learned how wonderful it is to reside in an area close to the water. After attending Boston College with a degree in Marketing, I spent time working and living in the Boston area until I moved to New Hampshire almost 17 years ago. Living in Stratham New Hampshire with my husband, who also has a background in real estate, and our two daughters, both in the SAU-16 school district, I am able to share lots of information about the local area.  I am also a Co-Leader of the Exeter Chapter of the Women's Business League. 

I love providing my clients with staging assistance and if you follow me on social media, you will see that I love sharing home tips as well! 

My goal as a realtor is to provide a 5-star experience to each and every client. Please consider giving me the opportunity to assist you!

Ask Dorothy Verani


We cannot overstate how amazing our experience working with Dorothy was. We were in the unfortunate position of looking for a home in the Seacoast from our apartment in Washington DC. The market was in too much of a frenzy for it to be viable for us to come and see things in person. Dorothy was never fazed by this. After only meeting us virtually, Dorothy set right to work finding us potential homes and going through the additional work of take us on video tours from her phone. It was truly above and beyond. She never tried to force anything on us. If anything at times she was brutally honest about when a home just wasn’t right for us. She somehow added a personal touch even from 500 miles away. We couldn’t be happier with the home we landed in and we give 100 credit to Dorothy. She’s the best. I’d recommend her to literally anyone in the area looking for an agent.

I needed help finding a home in Southern NH when living out of state. I was so VERY lucky to have the opportunity to work with Dorothy. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Dorothy listened to my needs and worked very closely with me to find my new home. She took into account the area and price range I was looking for, as well as many other factors. She was extremely responsive to my inquiries, and she reached out to me whenever she found anything that might interest me. I have told anyone who will listen what a great experience it was to work with such a caring and compassionate professional.

Dorothy is the very best! We are very happy we went with Dorothy Verani as our agent. Dorothy treated us like family and found us the right house, in the right neighborhood, at the right price. She went the extra mile for us every day and stuck with it in a very trying market. Can't say enough good things about Dorothy. If you are looking for a home in Southern New Hampshire ask Dorothy to be your agent. You will not be disappointed.

We cannot speak highly enough about Dorothy Verani. She is a pleasure to work with and supported us through the entire process of purchasing our new home. She was always available to provide advice, answer questions, do research, and continuously went above and beyond the call of duty. In fact, we are several months past closing and she is still a great resource for our family. Her local knowledge and relationships were a huge asset that should not be underestimated. We recommend her to all and will certainly continue to work with her for all our future real estate needs

Although we loved our home, our kids had grown up and we knew it was time to downsize. Dorothy listened to our goals, then she made recommendations for getting our house ready to sell that really made the house look great. Throughout the process, she gave us great advice and guidance without pressure. Dorothy is honest, she always worked hard on our behalf and in the end, we were more than happy with the outcome. If you are looking for a realtor you can trust, I highly recommend Dorothy Verani.

My husband and I had already sold our current home and were in a bit of a time crunch to find our new home (amidst Covid pandemic). Dorothy was right on top of every listing that came to her that fit what we were looking for. We were a little far away from most of the towns we were looking to move  to, so Dorothy went to open houses for us and sent us detailed videos and provided her honest feedback on if she thought we'd like the house or not. We ended up in a multi offer situation with our current home and Dorothy helped pull out all the stops to ensure that we got the home, and we did! Dorothy did what you would want your realtor to do -- sell your story. I would recommend Dorothy to any one of my family or friends, she is an excellent realtor!

Dorothy's #1 priority was selling our home and we felt that way throughout the process. She was also a tremendous help in staging our home and assisting with minor updates that resulted in receiving multiple offers and selling for over asking price!
