Ratings & Reviews

Gerald is pleasant and professional. He was available whenever we needed him, taking us to the house more than once, and after the sale. His knowledge of the business was excellent. The seller was tough, not sure Gerald could have done better.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Woburn, MA.

My husband and I contacted Gerald for help with the home buying process over 2 years ago. At the time we weren't really in the position to buy a home, but Gerald still took the time to show us a place and give us some tips on what to do and what to look for when buying a home. We contact Gerald again a little over 6 months ago when we were really serious about buying a home. He gave us the name of a few mortgage companies and banks that he recommended to get us pre-approved and then the house hunted began. We found some real gems to look at, but he still took the time to show us each and every house we were interested in seeing, even if it turned out to be a real mess and a waste of time. We eventually found a home we wanted to make an offer on and Gerald's experience got the sellers to agree on a price we were comfortable with. The inspection went well, the closing was quick and a month later we are all moved in. We never felt pressured by Gerald to make a decision. He was very responsive to phone calls, emails and texts, though he probably cringed every time he saw another email from me! I would highly recommend Gerald to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Wakefield, MA.

Gerald Barrett, realtor for Christopher J. Barrett Realtors, Wakefield, MA is a broker we would highly recommend. He is down to earth and easy to talk to, highly professional and responsive to a customer’s needs, and understands the local market.

We first spoke to Gerald a year before we listed our house and he gave us advise about what to do to maximize our sale price when we were ready to sell. He helped us focus on the most important improvements to make to the house.

When we were ready to list the house we had a few repairs that we needed to complete and we were unable to find a contractor who had the time to do them. Gerald had the name of a fellow who was able to complete the repairs immediately. This was a huge stumbling block for us and it just went away!

Once the house was listed, Gerald had a firm grasp on how to market it and negotiate with potential buyers. He answered his cell phone and emails promptly no matter when we contacted him. Negotiations took place during July 4th week and we were all out of town. You would never know it! He responded and followed up on everything as if he were sitting in his office!

Make an appointment to speak to Gerald if you are thinking of selling!

Sold a home in 2013.

Gerald Barrett helped us sell our parent's home during a most difficult time. My mother had passed away suddenly, my father was in assisted living, and passed away just prior to us putting the home on the market. Gerald was professional, considerate ,and respectful of the process we were going through as we emptied the family home and prepared it for sale. He gave us excellent advice about how to prepare the home for sale, and how to price it. Within one week of listing we had three offers. Gerald helped us evaluate the offers, and selecting the one with the highest likelihood of a successful closing. Gerald's knowledge of the community and his professional associations with the local bankers and attorneys involved contributed to a smooth process and "happy ending". If you are buying or selling a home in the Wakefield area he is the realtor to work with.

Sold a home in 2013 in Wakefield Junction, Wakefield, MA 01880.

Gerald was always there for me when I had any problems or qustions. He did more than I expected. I would use his services without hesitation again. He performs his work very professionally and I am the same way with my business. What else can I say? I have nothing negative to say about Gerald Barrett. He did a great job selling my house and even helped me with problems buying my new house.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Stoneham, MA.

As a first time buyer, with a small market to choose from based on my wish list, Gerald was able to help guide me through the condo buying process for two years. He always answered his phone and responded to texts. He went out of his way to contact me when he saw a property he thought I would be interested in. When the market was slow and we weren't in contact for a while, he always knew exactly who I was when he answered the phone. When buying a house, time can be of the essence and he made sure he was available. Gerald is intelligent, knowledgeable and has a great personality.
