Relocation to Boston

Relocate

"...My company relocated me to Boston from Michigan. My situation was such that I had to begin working immediately, 7 days a week. I had no time to waste. I was referred to Joe Wolvek, who is a very experienced broker... I was very confident that Joe was showing me the correct properties, and giving me all the market information I needed. When I purchased my new home, I felt very satisfied that I was buying the right unit for the right price...Joe provided me with excellent service, and I highly recommend him."

Boston is a beautiful city and a wonderful place to live, but if you're relocating to Boston, you'll need some help getting oriented to the type of real estate we have here, Boston's neighborhoods and surrounding suburbs, the housing inventory, and the the real estate purchasing process. I am here to help.

I've assisted hundreds of real estate buyers in Boston's Back Bay, South End, Midtown/Downtown, Beacon Hill, South Boston, Seaport, Waterfront, and other downtown neighborhoods. I also work the inner suburbs like Cambridge, Brookline, Newton, and Somerville. I am currently the Associate Director of Sales here at Gibson Sotheby's International Realty, and a senior sales associate. Here are some client testimonials.

  • If you are from overseas, you may need assistance with currency transfer or other financial or legal issues. I will be able to recommend the right people for the job.
  • Here in Massachusetts, particularly in Boston, the real estate purchasing process is different than elsewhere. we don't use escrow or title companies and it is vital to use an experienced attorney to help work through the transaction process.
