Real User Reviews for Real Estate Agent Companies

  • Mark and Kim Team, Keller Williams Realty
    Mark and Kim went above and beyond our expectation and has made our home purchase so much smoother. They picked properties that matched our budget and provided candid advice on the location of the properties. My husband and I are both from out of town and Mark was able to videochat with us to show us the properties and he also made time to show my in-laws the same properties when they went visit another time. They provided lots of helpful advice on getting loan, inspection etc. I would recommend them to anyone!

  • The Jason Bowman Team at RE/MAX Elite
    I highly recommend Jason Bowman if you need a real estate agent to help you buy or sell your home. He is dedicated to his work and he provides high-quality services to his customers. He is honest and direct about the information you need to make good decisions for your specific situation. He never hesitates to answer any questions you may have. He is quick to return your call and really listens to what you have to say. Jason makes it a point to stay in contact with you to make sure you're getting your needs met and everything is going smoothly throughout the buying or selling process. From my personal experience, he is a highly knowledgable real estate agent that truly cares about the people he works with.

  • J.T. Kelly at Keller Williams
    As someone who has worked in the industry, JT is far and away the best Agent I have worked with. Not only is he very knowledgeable about areas in Boston, but he truly understands the fundamentals of what makes or breaks a property. Besides his knowledge, JT understands budgetary constraints and will not try to upsell you and force you to go above your budget. I remember calling him earlier than 8 am to an immediate answer. No matter the timing of my calls, JT was always happy to answer any questions and point me in the right direction. JT understands the true value of customer service in real estate and is more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure all parties are happy with the transaction.

  • Jeff Kropp-The Home Buyer Agents
    I am so glad I hired Jeff! As a first time home buyer (and single person) the prospect of finding and buying a condo on my own was very intimidating. But Jeff made everything understandable (he basically gave me a crash course in home buying), and greatly simplified things by acting a loan officer and recommending an excellent inspector. He quickly understood what I was looking for and helped me find a wonderful place in an ideal location much much sooner than I expected. And then the buying process--from offer to closing--went off without a hitch. Jeff was awesome to work with--organized, diligent, and generous with his time (plus, he did all the driving). I couldn't be more pleased and would enthusiastically recommend Jeff.

  • Anjali Gill, Real Estate Professional
    Excellent !!! She was proactive in finding the houses according to our taste. Meticulous in arranging visits, and patient in showing the places. Any issues that came up during house inspection was handled very well and brought to closure Very ethical in her dealings, process driven, approachable and responds to texts and emails very quickly. She even followed up on the house we liked during her vacation even though she was in a different time zone, which ensured no delays in closing. Very Professional. Highly recommend.
