New To Market In Arlington

 
 

From the first "preview" showing to the last, Mary Lou made every effort to show the place every weekend and whenever there were requests. The market had slowed in the fall, properties were selling slowly and at reduced prices but she maintained the asking price and when my budget began to wear thin, she was able to persuade the painter to take payment after the closing, which freed up a couple of thousand dollars that came in very handy to cover a number of last minute costs. When an excellent prospect made an offer, she was able to ease them up another $10,000 - but more important, they were great buyers, so important as I'll be living upstairs. The closing was smooth from beginning to end, with every little detail taken care of. I was very pleased. - Seller survey returned 1/7/2019

I have never sold a property before so I had no idea what to expect but Sarah Suarez & Sarah Holt were there through every step! They checked out my condo and told me exactly what I needed to do to get it ready to sell. I trusted all their suggestions and it was so worth it!! My Condo sold within 24 hours of it being shown. I would absolutely use Sarah & Sarah again!!! - Seller survey returned 11/11/2018

Cathy Shea's attention to detail and knowledge of the Arlington market were instrumental in selling our home in a timely manner. Her recommendations and suggestions to prepare our house for the market, were reasonable and effective. She was very responsive to our questions and issues that arose during the process. Cathy went above and beyond taking care of our individual needs and interest. Cathy exceeded our expectations throughout this entire process and we would highly recommended her on the buying side as well. - Seller survey returned 11/4/2018

Margaret has been very helpful, knowledgeable, and patient when it comes to answering my questions. As a first time buyer who doesn't understand a lot about the different components of house searching, Margaret spent a lot of time going through my questions with a lot of details. These details can be very overwhelming, but she was able to break down every detail so that I understand where I am struggling. I appreciate her efforts for spending a lot of time and being available for contact no matter what the time is to help me through the house buying process easily.- Buyer Survey Returned 12/16/2018

Carol was superb in every way. Her professionalism at each step, her imperturbability in the face of challenges (e.g., the management company of the condo building of the unit for sale), her sensitive support and reassurance when she perceived discouragement in myself, her constant communication, her wise advice and help with matters that did not even touch directly on the sale (e.g., disposition of furniture), her willingness to make a repair herself (covering a hole made by a plumber), her choice of Tina, an excellent, personable cleaner before the closing: all these actions and far more than I can enumerate make her the very best agent I could ever have hoped for. Carol is at the very top of the 5-star real estate agents - Seller survey returned 9/15/2018

Lynne is wonderful to work with. She knows the Arlington market extremely well and was able to find us a great home in our target neighborhood and school district, at our price point, no small feat. She made a more difficult transaction go smoothly and handled many different aspects from advising us on an estate sale purchase to recommending contractors. She is thoughtful, knowledgeable, professional and a real pleasure to work with.- Buyer survey 12/5/2018

I decided to hire Carol and Sarah to sell my property after some online search. I know they’ll be perfect the minute I sat down with them. They know the market very well, and are very good at preparing the property for the prospective buyers. After open houses, 10+ offers came in and went above the asking. I cannot ask for more. The closing process was full of surprises and sharp turns and thanks to Carol and Sarah—all were managed extremely well. Given what happened I believe they possess qualities that cannot be found in most agents (Through my previous transactions I have known enough agents to say this). My hat off to their professionalism and perseverance. Hiring them is the decision I would never regret. - Seller survey returned 8/23/2018

For being a meticulous person myself, I take many aspects into consideration before deciding to work with someone. In short, I couldn't have asked for more from Steve's team. Steve and Tracy were always attentive, respectful, and considerate. Every phone call and email was responded promptly from day one to the last day of closing. It was clear that everyone from Steve's office worked so efficiently together as a team, and both my husband and I had a good faith throughout the selling process. Selling our first home could have been a very emotional, stressful, and overwhelming experience, but Steve and Tracy accomapnied us every step of the way and beyond. I would recommend Steve to anyone who is looking into selling or buying properties without hesitation. Thank you so much for all your help! It was a great pleasure working with you!  - Seller survey returned 9/23/2018

Cheryl Murphy and Rick Connors provided the very best in support during our listing, sale, and later when we purchased a new home. Their professionalism and guidance throughout the process is something we will always appreciate. They were always available to answer our questions from the early stages through the closing and beyond. When we were purchasing our new home Rick found the plot plan showed an underground oil tank. He immediately went to the Town Hall and then to the Fire Department to get the certificate showing that the tank had been removed according to EPA standards. This was undetected by other realtors and saved us from having research this information when we sell the home. Cheryl and Rick watched out for our interests every step of the way and it was a pleasure working with them. I have recommended them to our family and friends. - Seller survey returned 7/10/2018

Sarah Holt was amazing in our home search! She is very knowledgeable of the process and locations. She was available whenever we needed her, many times outside of the "usual" business days or times. She went above and beyond to help us get all of the information we needed about each home, especially with a historic home that had some unusual issues that we had no idea about. We felt that she took a personal interest in our family and our search for a great home, and was very personable. Sarah was always pleasant, even during some delays with financing. Couldn't have asked for a nicer, more helpful or knowledgeable agent! - Buyer survey returned 9/21/2018

Hands down...the best agents out there! Brian and Diana are amazing at what they do. They went above and beyond through the whole home buying process. It's a tough market out there and they counseled us on how to navigate it from the very beginning and were there every step of the way. I know they have other clients but they were so responsive and we always felt like we were their top priority. They make a great team and we wouldn't even consider using or referring someone else in the future.  - Buyer survey returned 8/20/2018

Julie did a really amazing job on the sale of our home. She had various contacts which proved to be really good (her staging agent, as well as her handyman) and helped get us the most on our sale. She also recommended a lender we have been happy with as well as some insight into various lawyers we had to choose from (we're happy with who Julie steered us to). At the end of the day, we got far more than we expected from our sale, and Julie (and her associates) were always helpful and understanding throughout an at times stressful process. - Seller survey returned 8/28/2018

Seamus was a great partner for us in finding our first home. He was always available, patient and did a great job in explaining and guiding us throughout the whole process. His thoroughness and attention to detail really stood out as we navigated unchartered territories of buying our first home. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with us. If anyone I know is ever in need of an agent for buying or selling a house, Seamus would be my #1 contact. Thank you, Seamus!  - Buyer survey returned 7/19/2018

We would not have found our home within the time frame we needed if it weren’t for Steve and The Home Advantage Team. Relocating to the Boston area meant not only finding a house, but figuring out which town to live in first! Steve and the team helped us narrow our search, find a town we liked and then a home that fit our lifestyle – all within a quick turnaround of just a few weeks. There were so many nuances and details that we just would not have known about, and their experience and knowledge to kept us five steps ahead of the game. We couldn’t have done it without them, and we recommend them to anyone looking for unparalleled real estate services.  - Seller survey returned 8/30/2018

We were so fortunate to have worked with Dale Hurd. As our Realtor, she really went above in beyond. I could call her with short notice of a home we were interested in and she would immediately set up a viewing. She often joined us in attending open houses and constantly provided us with thorough advice. She is someone you can trust, she is patient, and honest. We feel as though she had our best interest in mind. We are so happy in our new home and couldn't have done it without her.  - Buyer survey returned 9/19/2018

Mary was fantastic from the start of our search to our closing, and beyond! There were multiple instances when my husband and I would feel that we would never find our home in this crazy market (we really wanted to stay in Arlington), and Mary would respond with encouraging words and would help us reframe our plan to find the house that would work best for us. She was always a level-headed voice of reason in a market that we felt we couldn't navigate, and was in touch with us every step of the way, reminding us of things that needed to be done and next steps in the process. We look forward to having Mary visit our house once all the work is done and we move in. Thank you, Mary!  - Buyer survey returned 6/18/2018
