Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"Nancy and Marguerite assisted my wife and me in purchasing our perfect home in Wellesley. They were accommodating, patient, and informative. Nancy and Marguerite took the time to understand who we were as buyers and helped narrow our search to only the houses we wanted to see. Most importantly, throughout the negotiation process they were our biggest advocates and offered insightful ideas about what it would take to get the deal done. Nancy and Marguerite were supportive and understanding if we were not able to come to an agreement with a seller. We could not recommend Nancy and Marguerite more highly. They made the home buying process less stressful."
Dan and Cassie B., Wellesley, MA
"Nancy and Marguerite acted as real estate agents for the sale of our home in Concord. We are very pleased with the result they obtained for us. They provided clear and simple suggestions for preparing and staging the house. Their pricing strategy was certainly excellent since we received several offers above the asking price. The offer we accepted was about as good as any possible, with a price well above our expectations. Closing was efficient, quick, and with no delays due to forgotten or incorrect actions. We enthusiastically recommend Nancy and Marguerite to anyone wishing to sell or buy property in the Concord area."
LW and BLC, Concord, MA
"I recently sold my condominium with the professional assistance of Nancy Panagiotes and Marguerite Widell. Thanks to their knowledge of the market, real estate regulations and their advice. I appreciated their ongoing support. I was able to sell my property at a good price in a short amount of time. I found the amount of real estate information and advice available over the internet to be overwhelming and, often, of questionable accuracy/value. Without Nancy Panagiotes and Marguerite Widell I would have been lost. I’m so glad I chose them to help me through one of the most important financial transactions of my life."
Caroline S., Acton, MA
"I have known Nancy personally and have worked with her professionally for almost 30 years. I can say unequivocally that she is one of the most loyal, hard working people I have had the privilege of knowing and working with. Her professional, pleasant demeanor and her commitment to doing a significant level of research in any situation assures her preparedness in any negotiations; therefore, the knowledge she brings to the table are invaluable in any transaction. She will always get you the best possible outcome—and you can take that to the bank. If you are looking to place one of your most important decisions— buying or selling your home—into the hands of someone who will guide you through a complex process, there is no one I would rather have on my side and by my side to represent me, and I trust her implicitly to handle any affairs on my behalf."
AMS, NYC and Osterville, MA
"It is with great pleasure that we recommend the services of Raminder Bhatia. He made the home buying process extremely easy and painless for us. He listened to what we wanted and assisted us in finding a home that suited our family’s needs. He showed us a countless number of houses and was very patient with us throughout our search. He also provided great suggestions along the way in relation to potential issues and perks of the home. He recommended lenders, a home inspector, and a great closing attorney. His advice and guidance throughout the process was invaluable. His attention to detail, knowledge of the field, and no-pressure approach were greatly appreciated. We couldn’t have imagined going through this process with anyone but him. Anybody that buys or sells property in Eastern Massachusetts should certainly use Raminder for an optimal experience. Raminder Bhatia is an extraordinary realtor."
Jeff & Maria from Tewksbury
"Raminder was the seller’s agent on a property I was buying in Cambridge. That deal fell through and he promptly found another, better property 3 blocks away, which I acquired. Raminder is a true gentleman, not a pretender in a shiny new suit. He brings extensive knowledge and blue-chip professionalism to “Wild West” unreliability that so often pervades real estate brokerages. I know that Raminder will find me a good deal and he’ll stay on top of things – negotiations, extensions, and seller and lender interactions. In fact, I did not even use an attorney when I had Raminder as my agent. I still stay in touch with him, both professionally and personally, and hope to buy another property from him soon."
Mahesh from Cambridge
"I’ve read that one of the most stressful events in a person’s life is moving. For me, that was true, and that stress was alleviated with the help of Raminder Bhatia. He was able to accomplish that through action:
Guidance on home improvements
Use of technology for scheduling showings
Partnerships with talented a talented photographer, stager, and floor plan designer
Timely scheduling of open house
Full engagement in the purchase and sale, and closing process
Regular (and frequent) check-ins (phone calls, emails, and texts)
The end result was that my home was sold in 3 days! (From Open House to Offer Acceptance). Without a doubt, I would recommend Raminder Bhatia, and would absolutely work with him again in the future."
Harminder from Burlington
"Anna's honesty and transparency was beyond our expectations. Through every step of the process Anna was forthcoming and open in guiding us. We are 100% sure we would not have been able to do it without Anna's professional and deep level of experience. Her passion is what makes all the difference! We will definitely go back to Anna!!!!!"
John and Brenda, Sudbury
"We are more than pleased with Anna Travias' performance as our selling agent. Our property was unusual and not a standard home situation. Her advice was professional and effective. Anna listened to input from us, shared her own expertise and we developed a plan to prepare and sell our home specifically customized to our needs.
We were extremely impressed with the efforts of Anna and the whole support team at the office of Barrett Sotheby's Concord. If you are fortunate enough to have Anna as your selling agent you have a whole team of professionals and support network at Barrett Sotheby's Concord to achieve the best possible outcome for you as well as your buyer. We truly feel our home was left in the hands of a wonderful family. "
Pat & Tom, Acton
"Jackie acted as both our seller’s agent and buyer’s agent. For our home sale, Jackie’s advice, as well as her valuable connections with an expert stager and photographer, resulted in our property being highly competitive in a very tight market. Because of Jackie, we sold our home for 15% above asking price, which was thrilling."
"We worked with Jackie on the sale of our Lexington home, and she exceeded all of our expectations for a seller’s agent. Despite an aggressive timeline for getting our home on the market, Jackie’s excellent organizational skills and detail-oriented approach helped it all come together smoothly. She was very involved in each step of the process to ensure that nothing was overlooked and was very responsive with us from start to finish. Jackie’s deep knowledge and experience in the Lexington market and contacts within the community were a strong asset to this transaction by helping us to properly position our home for sale. She is a great listener, very accommodating, and a real pleasure to work with overall. We’d highly recommend Jackie’s services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate in the Lexington area."
Alan N. and Elizabeth F.
"Jackie is able to work with complex family dynamics and take care of the seller’s needs during this life-changing process. In addition, her guidance gave us the extra time to downsize effectively and choose our new home with care."
Maria and Norbert M.
"I chose Jackie on the strong recommendations of many friends who had worked with her. Jackie provided wise and thoughtful (but gentle) guidance each step of the way, from procedural matters to pricing and timing. At her recommendation (and using trades people she recommended) I made a number of cosmetic changes to the house, including substantial interior painting and redecoration. Guided by her good taste and sure sense of market appeal, my house was transformed into a much more attractive property. The result was that I received a successful offer above the asking price a week after it went on the market. Jackie’s follow-through is just as careful and thorough as her preparation work and she has continued to guide me through every remaining step toward a successful closing."
"Throughout the process, Mary-Lou was informative, available and understanding of our needs. I’d describe Mary-Lou has a Realtor who goes above and beyond to meet the needs of her clients."
â Rochelle S. and Wayne P.
"My wife and I have moved 14 times and Mary-Lou is by far(!) the best Realtor we have ever encountered. She recently helped us both sell our home and buy our next one. As our selling or buying agent she was amazing. Her instincts on how to price and market our house was spot on. She generated significant interest in our sale and we quickly found and closed with a buyer with a great offer in terms of price and terms. On the buy side she listened carefully to our desires, worked hard to find homes that fit our wants, and she found the perfect place for us. Her advice on purchase terms was again spot on and we are now, thanks to Mary-Lou, living happily ever after in our new home."
Tom and Beverly G.
"If you are in need of a Realtor who… will listen to you; make great recommendations to get the best price for your house; be available to you as if you are her only client; is someone who truly cares like it’s her house she’s selling; and… will bend over backwards to help you get your house ready to put on the market; then Mary-Lou McDonough is the Realtor for you! Mary-Lou and I worked together last year to sell my 4-bedroom home in Lexington and help me find a fabulous townhouse condo as I was downsizing."
"It was a pleasure working with Mary-Lou while selling our home in Lexington, MA. Mary-Lou is exceptional in terms of what she does - right from strategizing the selling process, to providing hands-on help with staging, to taking timely care of all the critical details in the entire selling process. Mary-Lou was incredibly helpful in handling some last minute unforeseen issues by herself after we left our house in Lexington and helped us in a smooth transition. She is thoughtful, hard-working, and a deal maker. We highly recommend her as a real estate agent."
"Mary-Lou and her team did an amazing job getting my house ready for the market. She coordinated cleaners, packers and with the assistance of her team did a spectacular job staging my home. She was able to generate multiple offers after the first weekend and my condo sold for well above the list price. Her attention to all of the details made an otherwise overwhelming process much more manageable and a lot less stressful. I am happy to recommend Mary-Lou to my family and friends."
Yuepeng W. and Yilin M.
"Rita is an outstanding agent. She coached us so well on how to show and price our home. It sold in 4 days! We highly recommend her."
Susan and Charlie
"Rita provided awesome advice and support when we downsized in Concord. She helped with a long, difficult negotiation on our new home, and flawlessly directed us as we prepared our home of 17 years for sale. We couldn't recommend her more highly as a trusted real estate advisor and agent!"
Stephanie and Miguel
"We hired Rita to sell our house in Concord Massachusetts.The moment we met Rita for the first time we felt immediately at ease, on the same wave length and we felt strongly that she was there for us to help us through the stressful process of selling a house.We can highly recommend Rita to anyone who wants to sell or buy a house. You'll be in excellent hands!"
Hans and Tracey
"Rita is a very talented and hard working realtor. She always puts her client's interest first and is a tough negotiator, I listed my house shortly after my husband died, and she was very supportive helping me through a very difficult transaction. She stayed on top of all the details, worked closely with the buyers' realtor and got me the price I wanted."
"I had the pleasure of working with Rita in both selling and buying a house. During both experiences, Rita was wonderful to work with as she understood both the emotional side of selling a long time home, as well as the emotional side of buying a new home to start over in. During the selling process, Rita offered wonderful advice on how to stage the house so it showed beautifully and provided good guidance on how to properly price the house.You can't go wrong with Rita on selling your home or helping you find your new one."
"Cil Cangiano is dedicated to her task, works diligently in moving the house quickly and above target price, and is knowledgeable of the housing market in Boston as well as our house’s local market."
"When I found the perfect home, Cil offered great advice on offer / negotiation strategy in a year when the market was extremely competitive. She helped to oversee the entire process, coordinating with my bank, attorney, and other stakeholders involved."
"Cil was very pleasant, very responsive to all of my inquiries and concerns. Cil did an excellent job keeping me posted during the whole process of purchasing our building."
"Your concerns are her concerns, and Cil works incredibly hard with a lot of experience to make things go smoothly and the way that you would want."
"Cil is a great real estate agent. She knows the market and provided us with tips and advice along the way. She will always tell you the advantages and disadvantages of a specific house, she cares about you as a client, and will never push you to make a decision you are not ready to make."
Gil & Anava
"I have used Barrett Sotheby's in the past and will continue to recommend and do business with them in the future."
"Nancy Nygard was so knowledgeable, professional, and always available to answer our questions during the entire selling process! Nothing could be done to improve her service. Superb!"
Karen from Concord MA
"Nancy Nygard was the BEST Realtor we have ever dealt with by far! Incredibly attentive and responsive to our interests and so clearly motivated, first and foremost, to get us a house that we love - and at right price too."
Kristen & Chris from Concord MA
"We will always be grateful that Nancy Nygard answered the phone that day. You will always be our favorite Realtor! We couldn't have done it without you."
Jim & Jen from Concord MA
"Laura is the most professional, organized, efficient and supportive Real Estate Agent I have ever had - all the reviews I had read on Zillow prior to choosing her were accurate! She helped me to purchase a condo for myself in Concord. Laura was always accessible via text, cell, email and in person. When I wanted to visit a home on a specific day and time, she made it happen and was there with me to provide her expertise and advise. She always listened to my feedback. And when I finally wanted to make an offer on a property she was thorough and persistent with the sellers to ensure I made an offer that I was pleased with. The condo I ended up purchasing was actually a condo not even on the market that she had found for me through her network and connections! She helped me through a very complicated process due to some very specific issues on the seller side. The outcome on my home price was better than I had expected! I will definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to sell or buy a home. She is outstanding!"
"We contacted Laura based on her high Zillow reviews. We interviewed her and two other highly reviewed Realtors. We brought her back for a final interview. I'm very data driven and I was skeptical about her market research. Now that we've sold our house, I can only say that I'm glad we followed our intuition to go with Laura and that my early, more skeptical self was completely wrong. I've now realized that selling a home requires an amazing alchemy of skills: architecture, interior design, photography, research, writing, and selling along with hand holding, emotional support, and openness. Once I realized how diverse the job is I can only say that Laura checks all of these boxes. She was on point every step of the way, sometimes arriving with flowers or donuts just when we needed an extra bounce. We are completely satisfied with how the entire process worked and if I were to sell another home in Concord I would RUN to Laura to have her help. One of the options on Zillow's rating scales is "masterful" and that captures how Laura handles the process - she's a master. I'm glad we found her on Zillow. I hope you end up with her too!"
"I cannot say enough about how fantastic Laura was in taking us through the sale of my mother's condo. When Laura got involved the unit was not entirely cleared out and was in poor condition. Laura recommended just the right level of renovation investment to maximize profit. She then took on a contractor role coordinating carpeting, painters, electrician, etc... It was such a relief to have a capable coordinator on the job and giving us daily updates. Laura knew how to market our unit so that the initial open house was well attended. Once we had a buyer (three days after the open house - over asking price) they wanted to close very quickly and again Laura flawlessly guided us through the accelerated process. Laura is a skillful professional and is great to work with. I personally would use her again in a heartbeat and I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy."
"Laura helped us buy our first house in Concord. Three things were remarkable about her: 1) she knew Concord inside out. She knew the neighborhoods, what differentiates each one, and where there is value. 2) She was super patient and supportive. Our process required more than a year and a half and despite our lower targeted price, she was ALWAYS promptly responsive. 3) She provided us with amazing comparables so we [could] buy the house at the best price and get the most future value. In this process, she saved us $50,000."
"Laura was wonderful to work with. She was very professional and respectful, and knew the market in which I was looking very well. Laura went above and beyond to provide me with useful information on my future neighborhood, as well as an in-depth market analysis."
"Laura McKenna is a very conscientious broker, with good ideas for promoting a property, handling details of a sale or rental, and following through afterwards. Not only that, she is fun to be with."
L. Smith Reynolds
"We had a great experience, start to finish, from helping us set a price; to suggesting improvements and repairs (but only those which would at least pay for themselves); to helping us find the right contractors for the jobs; and helping us figure out how to sell, donate, or discard our excess "stuff". She worked well with the Buyers agent who brought us a qualified buyer and got our asking price. Laura was always supportive, all the way through and even past the closing. I can't imagine how it could have been better."
"Laura is awesome, she helped us navigate our first house purchase in the US, helping us at every stage with sage and honest advise, clearly laying out the process and timetable, responding to our (many) questions 24/7 and drawing on her deep experience of the Concord MA market. If and when we come to sell/buy another house, Laura will be our first call."
"Laura's sense of style combined with her knowledge of “what will attract a buyer” is second to none. She excels in staging a home for sale by putting the property in its very best light."
