South End Boston Condos

Achieving Real Estate Dreams is What I Love to Do

In my three decades working in Boston real estate, I've helped hundreds of clients sell homes and investment properties. I help my clients meet and exceed their real estate goals while minimizing the stress that can come with the process.

For my seller clients, selling your Boston condo or home is my number one business priority. This is what I do and what I love. My strength is in maximizing demand for your property, as well as in negotiation and transaction management. I can also give you good advice on pricing. Here's how I approach pricing a Boston home or condo for sale. My goal is to help you maximize your chances of a best-price, best-terms, best-timeline real estate sale.

Here are some of my recent listings and sales.

For my buyer clients, I honor my duty to advocate for you and you alone, to help you find the correct home or condo for you, and not advocate for any other entity. Here are some of the ways a buyer agent is legally obligated to you, the buyer.

I'd love to help you achieve your real estate dreams. The first thing I do is have a preliminary consultation with you in order to form an action plan according to your needs. Please get in touch so we can begin!
