Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

Buying and selling a home can be a very personal experience and yet so many Realtors are not personable. I enjoy sitting with my clients at their kitchen table and spending the time to listen to their needs. I am approachable, experienced, and patient and try to bring humor to the process. I provide top level service, constant communication and expert advice. Most importantly for me is building long term relationships with my clients. Long after a home is sold or you have moved in I want to be thought of as a friend and someone you can call for any of your housing needs.

Born and raised in Newton, Ma, I have been a Boston native most of my life. Upon graduating from Ithaca College's award winning Park School of Communications I moved back to the Boston area and started my career working in the Community Relations Department for the Boston Red Sox. The highlight of my time there was being a part of the 1999 All Star Game festivities which were held at Fenway Park.

In 2004 I segued into the exciting world of Real Estate. I worked at a small boutique firm in Jamaica Plain where I was mentored by two of the most successful Realtors in all of Boston. In the spring of 2005, I was recruited to join William Raveis Real Estate and in  February of 2012 I made the  decision to move to the Keller Williams family. I currently work in the Chestnut Hill Market Center.

I work with buyers, sellers and developers and in 2010 obtained my SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) certification through the National Association of Realtors. My goal is to start focusing 35-40% of my real estate practice working with this ever expanding demographic. Very few Realtors nationwide are focusing their time and efforts on this rapidly growing demographic. I feel I have the personality, skill set and understanding to excel at this type of real estate. I am a licensed Realtor, hold a certificate as a licensed SRES, am a member of the National Association of Realtors NAR), the Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR), The Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GREB), Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and LINK. The majority of my business is in Newton, Brookline, Needham, Wellesley, Weston, Boston and Cambridge.

When not working hard for my clients, i can be found on the golf course, watching films and spending time with my dog Riley.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Needham, MA.
      Adam has a very calming and pleasant style. He is especially good when real estate deals don't go as planned. He is also excellent with the elderly.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Chestnut Hill, MA.
      As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions. Adam simplified the process for us in a way that made us feel comfortable with all of the big decisions we were making. He thoroughly answered all of our questions and was very attentive to our needs. We really felt like we could trust him especially when it came time to negotiate. He always had our best interest in mind and brought to our attention many important details that we had not thought of on our own. Adam has a great personality and his laid back, no pressure style makes him a pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable in his field and has a lot of great connections to other professionals that one might need services from. His services extended far beyond helping us purchase a home. We love our new home, but if we ever decide to move again we will definitely contact Adam!  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Medford, MA.
      Adam is great to work with. We came across some property online and Adam contacted us immediately, showing genuine interest on helping us on locating a new home for us. there were other agents that either never responded to us or did not seem interested in taking our business.He is very diligent and also has great follow up on the entire process. He is knowledgable with what to look for when looking at houses, ang gives good advices when it comes to the negotiating process. His referrals are professional, and makes the whole process a lot easier. We just closed on our new home yesterday. Thanks to Adam on helping us with the great follow up. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is interested in buying or selling.  MoreLess
