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.

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

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

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Charlestown, Cambridge, MA.

Irene is a total professional and I highly recommend her. This summer (2013) she helped me purchase the exact investment apartment I wanted. Irene made the whole process seem easy and I felt comfortable with her throughout. In particular, I found her to be knowledge, straightforward, ethical and responsive. After my purchase of the apartment Irene immediately found tenants, recommended an insurance agent, property manager and handyman--all of whom provided excellent ancillary service. Irene seems to have deep roots in the real estate community and she delivered excellent value. Thank you Irene!

Sold a Multiple Occupancy home in 2010 in Somerville, MA.

After interviewing three other agents, we went with Irene because of her knowlegde of our area and her professionalism. She was so kind and understanding of the emotional aspects of selling a life long family home.

Add to this that she listed our home for 50,000 more than the suggested list of the three other agents we had interview, then sold it two days after the open house for more than the asking price.

She sold our home three years ago during the height of the housing crisis and made a difficult task so much better than any of us could have hoped for.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2004 for approximately $675K in Somerville, MA.

Irene was the seller agent when we bought our Davis Square home in 2004, and we were very impressed with her expertise and professionalism. Since then we have consulted with her several times, and she has always been exceedingly helpful and responsive, going out of her way to help us even when she was not being financially compensated. There is no other agent I would work with.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2004 for approximately $675K in Somerville, MA.

We were so lucky to have bought a house from a seller represented by Irene Bremis. Don't get me wrong, the process of bidding on this house was terrifying because there was no mistaking that as nice and helpful as Irene was (and is) that she knew and still knows the business like no other and that she would get the best offer for her seller. Luckily, that was us, and in addition to getting a great house, we got an incredible ally in Irene Bremis. As first time home buyers we have been able to ask her for advice and referrals and whether on vacation or in the middle of a busy week at work, she has always answered our queries with lightning speed. I cannot imagine buying or selling a property in Massachusetts without Irene. In addition to her professional dedication and unparalleled understanding of Somerville Real Estate, Irene is also a lovely person. There are not enough stars (maybe 10 out of 5 stars?) to adequately communicate how much I recommend Irene Bremis.

Sold a home in 2011.

We were incredibly fortunate to have Irene Bremis as our realtor when we sold our home and purchased a new one during the fall of 2010. Irene’s expertise was invaluable as she skillfully helped us navigate a difficult real estate market. She patiently answered our many questions and provided a thorough market analysis, which enabled us to realistically price our home to sell. She then helped us determine what needed to be done to get our house ready for the market, and provided resources to do this quickly. We were delighted to accept an offer within a couple of weeks, and again relied upon Irene to negotiate successfully on our behalf and get us the best price possible for our home. She kept us apprised of every step and was a rational sounding board during the negotiations, which were sometimes emotional for us as sellers. Irene worked hard for us and was a tremendous advocate - we never could have sold our home as quickly or as lucratively without her as our realtor. When it came time to buy a new home, Irene was a true partner in helping us evaluate properties. Her knowledge and input helped us decide which houses had potential versus those that were not the right fit for us. There was never any pressure, and we took our time finding the right home for our family. Again, her guidance was critical during the offer and negotiation process. We purchased a home that we loved; and Irene helped us reach a deal that was fair to us. Irene loves what she does, and that alone makes it a pleasure to work with her. She is honest, patient and has a great sense of humor. She is smart and knowledgeable about the market. She is a fierce advocate for her clients and even-keeled when it comes time to negotiate. We highly recommend Irene Bremis to anyone considering selling or buying a home.

Sold a Multiple Occupancy home in 2003 in Somerville, MA.

I have known Irene for over ten years now. I was one of those people who was very skeptical about working with an agent at first but that changed when I met Irene. Right from the start I was impressed with her pleasant but non-aggressive demeanor. I also knew that she was a true professional and knew her stuff. Irene was very patient and accommodating, showing us house after house at all hours of the day and night in a very busy market. After awhile we learned to trust her more and more and really heeded her advice. She led us to two wonderful investment properties and we had nothing but success as owners. When it came time to sell, she was just as professional and we were more than happy with the outcome. When it comes to working with an agent, you want someone who is really there for you and Irene is that person. There are also few other agents in the area with her level of expertise.
