Customer Testimonial

Leslie Banks

Buyer Rating:

Les was very attentive to my unique requirements and came up with not only available homes, but in understanding me, offered suggestions and ideas that ultimately led to my finding the right place in an area I'd not considered before, and he also offered financing thoughts that led me to the right house, with the right financing, and with his negotation skills, we were able to secure a highly sought after property at a solid price. - David Reich July 2017

Karen Zoeller

Seller Rating:

When I bought my condo in Arlington 12 years ago I knew when the time came, Karen would be my goto agent. She went above and beyond 12 years helping me to find and buy it, and 12 years later went above and beyond again.

This sale was a bit more complex as I live clear across country, had tenants in the property and a downstairs neighbor selling at the same time.

Karen handled it all with ease, professionalism and throughout the entire process I knew I was in capable hands working for my best interests. I got top dollar and everything went through without a hitch. Her network, passion, commitment and willingness to go above and beyond really shined. - Lisa, San Diego June 2017

Emily Forshay-Crowley

Buyer Rating:

Emily Forshay-Crowley took all the time necessary to learn everything possible from us about our needs and wishes. She is an excellent and caring listener.

She was great at helping us to consider options that we had not thought of, helping us to be open to different ideas.

She is warm and generous in spirit and extremely dedicated to her work and her clients.

Emily is very knowledgeable and easily shared her expertise, wisdom and support throuout the process. We could not have asked for a better experience! - Joanne & Steven Pressman May 2017

Steve P Savarese

Seller Rating:

He is an amazingly dependable and available human being and helped me through several levels of challenge with this sale

If there was a category exceeding Excellent, he'd be in it!! He exemplifies all of the aforementioned qualities!!!

He managed several unpredictable crises both pragmatically, as an emotional support, offering reassurance, humor and clear boundaries about what one could expect. He's an awesome human being and a man around town! Glad I got the privilege to work with him. - Ruth Levy, Amherst, Ma May 2017

Christopher Andrews

Buyer Rating:

Chris was highly professional from start to finish. He had a great knowledge of the real estate market as well as home repairs themselves. His incite proved invaluable to our home buying experience. - Caroline, Wakefield May 2017

Susan MacDonald

Seller Rating:

Susan MacDonald was very helpful, careful, and thorough during the entire process of selling the house in West Medford. She is familiar with the area and provided comps to assist in determining the price. She made a difficult time for us much easier. I would not hesitate to recommend Susan when buying or selling a home. We hope to work with her again soon. - Kristine May 2017

Brian Quinn

Buyer Rating:

My husband and I worked with Brian briefly in 2012 before we decided to take a break from house hunting, then again in 2016/2017 when we purchased our first house, and we cannot say enough positive things about him and the whole experience of working with him. He was knowledgeable about every stage of the process, an excellent communicator, and very responsable with respect to getting all emails and paperwork to us in a timely manner. Brian always put us at ease with our many questions and emotions throughout the house buying process. We cannot recommend him highly enough, and while we don't want to move any time soon, if we did, we would 100% work with Brian again! - Alyssa Okun & Tony Casci May 2017

James Trano

Seller Rating:

We chose James because we were familiar with his exceptional customer service, knowledge of the industry and housing market, and his ability to convey both the buyer and seller's perspective. We felt he would work diligently on our behalf, while providing honest feedback and support. His marketing and social media skills were exceptional and were a contributing factor to getting the word out about my home.

James was very responsive within a few minutes to our questions around the process of marketing our home and what to expect. His prompt service always put our minds at ease.

Everything went smoothly, and I couldn't be more pleased. My home was sold in one weekend, during a blizzard. Because of James efforts, we were able to receive multiple offers, and had the privilege of choosing which one was best for our needs. Jame's commitment to the sale of our home was evidence of his outstanding customer service to his clients.

I felt that Jame's extraordinary efforts in getting our house priced competitively was a key component in the quick sale. His knowledge and detail gave us the the confidence in knowing we were in good hands.

I would recommend James to family and friends, looking for a highly qualified, and compassionate realtor. - Donna And Steve Markusse April 2017

Paul Houser

Seller Rating:

From our first meeting I knew I found the broker I wanted to work with. Paul Houser from Century 21 Adams was a dream to work with: professional, knowledgeable and delivered top-notch service. Always available and made you feel no house sale was more important than yours! That went a long way. Paul Houser brought in great prospective buyers and I walked away with a sale I am totally satisfied with. I will recommend Paul to anyone I know looking for a #1 realtor, as well as Century 21 Adams.

Paul Houser was fantastic. The biggest asset he had is that he listened. He is the home selling pro...yet when I offered opinions I got respect and knew he "heard" me. Paul was always in contact and available. He made the sale as stress free as possible. I could not have walked away from this sale with any more satisfaction. I will recommend Paul to anyone I know looking for a fabulous realtor! #1 in my book! - Maryann Ciampi. Medford March 2017

Steve OBrien

Seller Rating:

Steve Obrien's attention to detail and knowledge made a very stressful process much easier! We had close to 90 groups of people come through the house in 4 days and received 10 offers on our house! Steve helped us to make an informed decision on which offer to accept.

We were very impressed with the print-out Steve provided with photos and information for potential buyers to take with them after their showing.

We had accepted an offer in less than 1 week of our house going on the market.

Thank You Steve for all you did to sell our house!

Michaela Mahtani

Buyer Rating:

It was the best thing happened to us to have met Michaela (Pixi) throughout our search. We met her at one of the open house in our neighborhood. From the moment we met her, we were really comfortable talking to her, she was very sincere and tried to understand our need. We had been looking about 6 months before we met Pixi but having a hard time in our search. After we hired Pixi as our agent, things started moving quickly and we are finally able to find our first house!! She is very professional, yet friendly, always reminded us that she is there for us. She replies our text, emails and phone calls promptly and communicated to us if there is the time frame she could not take our calls. The communication is crucial in this fast passed real estate market. She was with us every steps throughout our search, from open house, arranging the showing, putting offers and inspections. Also, she guided us to make a right decision but always valued and respected our decisions, never ever pushed us to make a decision. Boston real estate market is crazy now, however, we appreciated her sticking to her core belief; she is very conservative and never asked us to waive any contingencies to get a house (i.e inspections and loans and etc.) or go above our comfortable zone in terms of offer price, which closely aligned with ours. We know some agents sometimes recommends to do so to get a house. Overall, our experience with Pixi was absolutely great. Now that we closed on our first house, only negative we would say is: we will no longer be able to see you. We enjoyed the time with you that much. We cannot thank you enough. - Sato Family, Newton December 2016

Julie Horvath

Buyer Rating:

Julie is an amazing agent! She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the home buying process. She is very quick to respond to calls, emails and texts and made sure we fully understood everything before moving forward with every step of the first time home buying process. Thanks a ton Julie! - Matt And Tamorra, Biller December 2016

Adam Rosenbaum

Buyer Rating:

Adam Rosenbaum made this process very easy for us. He was very knowledgeable about the local area and recent market trends and understood what we were looking for in a home. He made himself available to us at convenient times as well. Best of all, Adam was very patient with what may have been a somewhat long time horizon on our end. We ultimately were able to make an accepted offer on a house within weeks of starting to work with Adam even though Adam made it clear to us that he was willing to search with us for a home for many months if necessary. I would definitely recommend Adam to others. - Alyssa Saunders, Arlingt December 2016

Jane Byrne

Seller Rating:

I felt very comfortable from the start with Jane. Her clear and sensible thinking on how to best price the house and when to market it

were decisive factors in my choosing her. Jane had also done a very thorough job in researching the market and the data concerning the

history of my condo.

Jane did her homework at every turn. She was most helpful in explaining the various steps of the process and she also handled the post-building inspection negotiations with the buyer very skillfully and successfully (from my perspective).

Jane kept in touch at every turn in the road and was incredibly thoughtful and encouraging throughout the whole process.

She deserves a lot of kudos for her professionalism and personal warmth. - David Lawton, New York June 2016

Stephen Hueber

Seller Rating:

Stephen is an excellent communicator, understood our needs completely, and knows the local market extremely well. We highly recommend his services. - Michael Friedman, Rockpo March 2016

Anne Volpe

Seller Rating:

Having dealt with Anne in the past is really the only factor I need to continue asking her to help me with my real estate needs. That's truly how great she is at what she does, and how great she is as a person.

Everything about Anne's demeanor, attitude, personality and approach are truly excellent.

Anne has helped me purchase two homes and sell one. I will never ever consider asking anyone but Anne to help me with my future needs, and I recommend her to everyone that I know.

Most especially, Anne is truthful, proactive, concise, organized, knowledgeable and consistently a step ahead.

Anne, I can't thank you enough for all of your help in the last 5 years, and certainly we'll talk soon about the next transaction. - John Halverson February 2016

Kathleen McCloskey

Buyer Rating:

Kathy is the ultimate real estate professional. - James Mackey December 2015

George Chen

Seller Rating:

George is an excellent agent, very professional. Did a wonderful job for my house sale. - Zhongtao Wu Central New August 2015

Teri Kirkland

Buyer Rating:

After attending an open house, Teri Kirkland reached out to me to offer her services as a buyers agent. Teri was incredibly knowledgable about the area and very low pressure in her approach, which I thought was ideal.

Teri was great when it came to negotiating the best deal for our property - we felt like someone was really looking out for us and that we were in great hands! She arranged for not only the home inspection but also a follow up contractor visit to help further diagnose potential issues.

Everything about Teri's approach to being a buyers agent - from the initial "getting to know you" meeting to the final handover of the keys at closing - was wonderful. We always felt like a top priority for her, and like she really was our ally in the whole process. Teri went out of her way to make things as simple for us as possible.

I honestly have no complaints about the services she provided, and I would whole heartedly recommend her to my friends and family. - Mary W., Cambridge Ma August 2015

Roy Cook Jr.

Buyer Rating:

Roy took the time to understand the kind of home that my kids and I would be happiest with--even more than I did! He paid attention. - Carolyn C. Carlson; Arli July 2015
