Ratings & Reviews

We recently (April-June 2015) worked with Jeff and his associate Sandra Castillo to buy our new home. The first place we looked at they were the sellers agent and the place we finally bought they were our agents. They both made the experience much easier than we expected. Sandra was always on top of everything and her follow through was excellent. She was so pleasant to work with and always listened carefully to our concerns. I would highly recommend both Jeff and Sandra. They were certainly experts in the area that we bought as they have worked in this part of Massachusetts for years.

Bought a home in 2013 in Admirals Hill, Chelsea, MA 02150.

Jeff is a great Realtor and a gentleman. He has an exceptional understanding of the value of the market and is willing to share that expertise with his clients. I have worked with Jeff as my buyers agent and as my sellers agent over the past years and everything went forward as expected. I have not seen MLS listings any better than what Jeff's team provides as far as photography, etc. Thank you Jeff for your work around Boston.

Sold a home in 2014 in East Boston, Boston, MA.

Since 2005 I have gone thru many RE agents and I final hit the jackpot with Jeffrey Bowen. He is a go getter without being obnoxious and he is always there when I need help with my properties in Boston. You will not find a more genuine, honest and compassionate yet no nonsense human being. All this together with his professionalism and thorough up to date knowledge of the industry makes Jeffrey the best RE agent one could hope to have on ones side. Want someone who really listens to what your needs are in finding a home or property and to go out of his way to make your sale painless as possible? You will find Jeffrey Bowen the man to have by your side to represent you. Call him! Dr. Tsin Yuen Jeanne Ling

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in East Boston, Boston, MA.

Jeff sold our condo in 2 hours!! He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He had an excellent marketing plan, including fantastic photos of our unit. He truly understands the market, and knew exactly the price to ask for. My husband and I had to sell quickly because we were moving out of state. Our sale was still pending when we left and Jeff took care of all the details while we were gone. In addition to his professionalism, Jeff clearly cares about his clients. He always had time to communicate with us and understand our needs. I couldn't recommend him enough.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Chelsea, MA.

Jeff is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of selling and buying even with things that do not fall under the responsibility of the agent. He knows the legal process as well. He helped me to sell and also to buy my next condo. He is very personable and this helps with dealing with so many different people in the process. He helped to negotiate certain aspects within the buying process and made sure that all the important things were covered. I would highly recommend Jeff to others.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Chelsea, MA.

Jeff was all around an excellent agent to work with. Once I got my loan pre-approval, he knew I was serious about buying and we were off to the races. My girlfriend and I knew we wanted to live in Chelsea and sent him every zillow listing that caught our attention, Jeff then filtered them by considering location and whether they would qualify for financing and put together our first day of showings. It quickly became apparent that he has been in this business a long time, as his knowledge about the area, home construction, interior design and financing is impressive.

There were a couple homes we toured extensively, and a couple where we didn't even go in the front door. This didn't matter to him and at no point did I feel pressured to make a decision. After we had exhausted the listings and hadn't found something we liked, I simply told him where exactly in Chelsea we wanted to live, and to let us know when something was available.

To our good fortune, a seller contacted Jeff later that month on the street that was our top choice. Jeff was able to put a deal together between us without the condo even going onto the market, we were very pleased with his negotiation advice and neutrality while representing both us and the seller. Jeff then facilitated the closing process very smoothly, having a well oiled team of real estate lawyer, financing, home inspector and appraisal. We closed right on time and are very happy in the new home!

Marek, I want say thank you for this wonderful review. I hope that you and your girlfriend are happy in your new home and please invite me over in the summer for drinks on your gorgeous deck on the waterfront of Chelsea. It was truly a great real estate transaction and I love it when things go smoothly. You made a wise choice in picking that home to purchase for a reasonable price. It will turn into a great investment. Please don't hesitate to reach out for advice and I thank you for the opportunity to have been the Real Estate Agent that you chose to work with and I wish you happiness and joy in your new home. The waterfront district of Chelsea is a great neighborhood and I will have some condo listings coming on the market in the summer there that will be a great addition to the area. See you around Chelsea!

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

Jeff was excellent in explaining to me (a rookie) the process and what was expected to happen. He had great knowledge of the area and his communication was fantastic. I always had a response within an hour, and usually within 10 minutes. Unfortunately, my work transfer changed and I'm no longer looking for a place in Jeff's area, but I'd recommend him to anyone.

thanks Jeff!

This was so nice of you to say! I wish you the best in your travels! I'll be here in Chelsea and East Boston if you ever wish to come back to the area or have any friends that will be looking in this area. I focus on these 2 communities and it serves my clients well to be a specialist in this area. Growing up here and living here has given me a great advantage for my clients.

Sold a home in 2013 in East Boston, Boston, MA.

Jeff secured a cash over for the full asking price of my condo in less than week, and we closed about a month later. I live out-of-state and he really went out of his way for me to help seal the deal.
