Real User Reviews for Real Estate Agent Companies

  • 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.

  • Steve Rupp - Real Estate Agent
    It could not have been better - since we sold our hope privately, he was not the listing agent. However we agreed on a fee and hired hime and that was a very smart move. Things went exactly as planned .
  • 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.

  • Buyers Brokers Only LLC
    Jeff Goodwin is my idea of the perfect buyer's agent--incredibly knowledgeable, highly responsive, and the epitome of a professional. I was trying to quickly find and purchase a condo in Worcester by long distance (Texas to Massachusetts) and Jeff made it all work more smoothly than I imagined possible. He listened carefully to my search criteria, matched that with plausible properties, provided insightful commentary on neighborhoods and other important factors, and even dealt quickly and sanely with one super-challenging seller. I was only in town for 24 hours, but Jeff managed to get me through the whole process of seeing properties, getting an offer accepted, arranging inspections, hiring a real estate lawyer, and getting all necessary documents signed in that short time. Eighteen days later, I have just closed on an ideal condo and Jeff was invaluable throughout the whole process.

  • Connie Vallone - Park West Real Estate
    This is our second time dealing with Connie (our agent in the lease) - both times we received prompt professional service and we will definitely hire her again. Connie's advice has been spot-on and she went above and beyond to help us out on very short notice.
