Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Medford, MA.

I have had the privilege of working with Irene Bremis for almost ten years. I refer clients, friends, and family to her on a regular basis and have the utmost confidence that they will be treated well, advocated for strongly, and given the best advise and advantage possible by working with Irene. I have had nothing but glowing reviews from all who have had the opportunity to work with Irene.  More Less

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Somerville, MA

I would NEVER use this person again. If you do be very careful. She lied to me several times. I have excellent references and a very high credit rating. for some reason she just did not want to rent to me. I suspected this, and just did not want to waste my time. Her option was the best one I was looking at, but I had other options, so I did not want to lose them. I tried to give her an "out" (easy excuse) , but she kept on insisting that the rental was still likely. after several weeks of being led on, she gave me a bogus -said it was already rented. This cost me the other place & I had a scramble to find a place to live. by the way, 1 week later, she was still advertising the place for rent with several rooms available.

I also found out that she has done this to several other people. if she would lie to me about this, (when she really did not need to) then I am sure that she really doesn't care what she lies about. BE VERY VERY CAREFUL if you deal with her

Response from Irene on 10/29/2013

I have flagged this review as I am not sure this is a legitimate complaint. Why would I not want to rent to a person with excellent credit and great references??? If you feel you were treated unfairly please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss. The only property I can think of where I may have had to refuse a tenant with excellent credit or references is a property that was advertised as a September 1st rental that I could not deliver tenant free as of September 1. Tenants laid over past the September 1st date and I could not accommodate. One never finds these things out until it is either last minute or just too late. If this is a legitimate grievance then I am more than willing to make myself available for you if you would like to further discuss. Warm Regards, Irene
