Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Brewster, MA.
We bought a townhouse at ocean edge with Leighton. They did really an excellent job. We loved working with Bernie Keller, he was extremely helpful. Always available when information was needed. Unlike realtors we know, they showed chances as well as risks - honest and fair. Very efficient in establishing contact with local banks and lawyers. Since we are from Germany and we were not aware of the clumsy processes in buying a condo overseas, we are pretty sure the transaction would have failed without that excellent support. We can recommend Leighton for buying as well as for renting condos: we rented twice with them before buying the condo and had only very positive experience.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in South Dennis, South Dennis, MA.
I would express my experience with Michael and his team as being professional and responsive to meeting my expectations. There were a few unforeseen items that upon inspection required repair...relying on Michael's expertise and extensive network of local craftsmen, these were resolved promptly and with the quality of workmanship expected. Utilization of available media (email, Web, text messaging, scans) made communication between parties extremely convenient and efficient...follow-up questions or document transfer occurred seamlessly. Overall this was a positive experience and one that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for professional and reliable real estate services.
Had a wonderful experience with Leighton Realty. Michael as well as the office staff were very professional, knowledgeable, patient and was quick to respond to my emails or phone calls. I highly recommend this agent/agency.

Michael Leighton has a good understanding of the Cape Cod market. Very honest and realistic. If you are looking to buy or to sell no one is better. We worked with Michael to develop a realistic plan on where to list and how flexible we needed to be and it was successful. Michael was right with us during the inspection and closing process and all of his suggestions were right on leading to quick remedies and a smooth closing.
While we owned the home Michael was our rental agent and he clearly is the best and most visible for rental units on Cape Cod.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Dennis Port, Dennis Port, MA.
Mr Leighton was very precise and professional as well as courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend him and his company. The sale of my cottage was done with ease and precision and it made a very difficult time for me much easier. Thank you very much Mr. Leighton.
Michael and his associates were very helpful in the sale of our property. They were pleasant and responsive throughout the whole process. Their knowledge of the local market, both past and present, guided us. We recommend this firm.
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Brewster, MA.
We live in Virginia and did most of our condo search online. Michal was very responsive by email and phone with the MANY questions we had prior to a visit. Once we planned a visit, Michael made himself available to fit our limited schedule. He was very knowledgeable about the properties we viewed, the condo associations, property history, utilities, negotiating offers, etc. He and his staff provided resources and numbers to mortgage folks, utilities and other town necessities. From start to finish everything went smoothly.
Michael Leighton and Stephanie Dolson handled my recent purchase of a property at OceanEdge. Their knowledge of the local market is right on the mark. I would highly recommend them to any interested buyer
In 2012 we decided to sell our Condo and expected that the process would be both long and painful. We met with Michael on Labor Day weekend and had two full price offers by Colombus Day weekend. We closed by mid December without any issues. Michael and Stephanie Dolson kept us informed of progress and were extreamly easy to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
In 2013 we went to Michael to assist us in finding a single family home in or around Brewster. Michael again was very helpful and we located a home and completed the purchase in about two months. Michael guided us through the process and helped us negotiate purchase price that was less than I expected.
