Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Reading, MA.

Jonathan did an amazing job by selling our condo and finding our dream home.

Once our condo hit the market we saw immediate interest. He gave us great guidance on pricing it right and staging it so it was very appealing to anyone viewing it online or in person. In only a few days we received several offers. Jonathan went over them with us and helped answer and and all questions we had for him.

At the same time Jonathan was working his magic helping us find our next house. He was hard at work reaching out to all of his contacts for any inside intel on houses that fit our criteria in the towns we were looking in. He always makes himself available and is very prompt in getting back via email, text, calling back. Once we zeroed in the house we wanted in this competitive market Jonathan asserted himself on our behalf by letting the agent/seller know what great buyers we are. He also recommended that we write a letter to the seller, which did end up working out in our favor as we were not the highest offer but the seller really liked the personal touch. He was instrumental in negotiating some items that came up during inspection. In the competitive Boston Metro area it is so important to have someone that is sharp, responsive and experienced. Jonathan is by no means a pushy agent that just wants you to buy something so he can get paid, he wants you to be happy and brings a great objective opinion on properties.

We could not be happier with our experience working with Jonathan. If/when we ever move again I will certainly use him as our agent and strongly recommend him to anyone that wants an agent that will get things done and make it happen.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Leather District, Boston, MA.

Having worked with another realtor/agency for several months prior and not getting anywhere in terms of moving to the city, I made the switch to work with Jonathan after meeting him at an open house. Best decision I've made this year. Jonathan's expertise helped me secure a condo within only 1 MONTH of working with him. His ability to multitask (working as a dual agent) on this particular property made the purchase and sale move almost fluidly. Jonathan's particular knowledge in regard to the affordable housing lottery through the Boston Redevelopment Authority, is exceedingly unmatched. I would — without hesitation — work with Jonathan as my realtor again.

Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2014 in Billerica, MA.

Working with Jonathan was such a pleasure. When we started, we had no idea what we wanted, but Jon helped us figure out the pros and cons of all our options. He was also answered all of our questions. We had no idea what we were doing, but he helped us along, held our hand.

Jonathan was always willing to put in the extra effort to answer our questions, to make sure we were happy with our decisions, and let us know how the market/area looked.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $450K in South Boston, Boston, MA.

Jonathan takes his own photographs, which expedites the process of putting your place on the market. His photographs are beautiful! His attention to detail was also evident in hosting Open Houses.

Bought a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $150K in Revere, MA.

I met Jonathan through an open house in 2009 when I was beginning my journey of buying my first home. I was dealing with another real estate agent at the time who I felt was not as helpful as I thought they would be. It was fate to meet Jonathan who was very knowledgeable about first time home buyer assistance programs available and helped refer me to a great loan officer who worked tirelessly as well. Jonathan showed me many condos, was accomodating with times to meet and was honest about not so good choices when I was getting desperate and jumping at any cheap condo that I found. I was a bit rushy and naive and could have made BAD decisions that I would be regretting by now but Jonathan was always honest and always guided me in the right direction because he's a genuinely good person who cares about his clients. He helped me find this cute condo in 2009. Brand new unit, fresh, clean just perfect for me. He really worked hard to get me this place ( the management company who owned this place was a pain to deal with, but Jonathan perservered for me. My offer was made and accepted in November 2009 and I didn't move in until March 2010! It was a looong process full of red tape for the type of loan I got but worth it. At the time of my closing, Jonathan showed up with a gift to congratulate me on my first purchase. It has been 3 years and I love my little condo!! I have no regrets at all but I know I would have if I had gotten any of the other places. Another realtor wouldn't really have cared but Jonathan wanted to make sure I made the RIGHT decision. I absolutely feel I did. I highly recommend Jonathan!

Showed home in 2013 in Melrose Highlands, Melrose, MA 02176.

Jonathan showed us several homes in the North Shore area. He worked tirelessly on our behalves to help up find the property that is perfect for us. His knowledge of the local real estate market also proved invaluable throughout the entire process. We have worked with several other brokers in the past, but Jonathan is our go to guy now.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $1.8M in Back Bay, Boston, MA.

Jonathan worked with us as we were moving from the suburbs to the city. He was extremely patient as our process evolved from being unsure of what we were looking for to the type of unit we desired. He offered a variety of locations and responded quickly to any request. When looking at a space, he was a constant resource but never took over the experience, which we appreciated. He helped us find the condo that we love!

Jonathan is a very knowledgeable and dependable broker. He went above and beyond in helping me to find my condo in Cambridge. The entire process was much easier and more fun than I expected thanks to his help. I would recommend him to anyone.

Showed home in 2012 in South End, Boston, MA 02116.

Jonathan is great to work with. He's responsive, asks very good questions when we visit properties, and listens really well to my preferences. He clearly wants to find the right place for me, not just any place. He stays up-to-date with what is happening in the real estate market, locally and nationally, and he is very professional. I highly recommend working with him!
