"Buyers Brokers Only, LLC made my home-buying process painless from start to finish. They worked hard to accommodate my schedule by being available after hours and on weekends, and thoroughly answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I got a fantastic deal on my first home, I was well-informed throughout the entire process, and I didn't have to hire a separate attorney because they do it all! Rich and David were both pleasures to work with, and you can bet I'll be recommending my friends in the future."
Bought: Condo in Haverhill, MA
Client: Frank P.
"Rich, I can't thank you enough for all the work and guidance you provided during my search and purchase of my new home. Your expertise in the home-buying process coupled with you being an attorney proved to be an invaluable combination, which gave me a comfortable feeling that you were working for me, and only me, as a buyer. I admit I was skeptical at first when you said you would be my buyer broker and attorney at no cost to me, but it was true. Your price was only the commission split on the sale, which was paid by the seller, not me. I will surely recommend you to family and friends. My advice to anyone buying a home is to forget [other] real estate agents, use the buyer brokers/attorneys at Buyers Brokers Only, LLC. I hope we can do business again in the future."

Client: Satyen M.&Rajee A.
"When we started looking for a condo, we realized early on the benefits of having a buyers broker represent our interests and clear up the home-buying jargon. We found links to Rich's name on several websites and found favorable reviews. After a brief meeting with Rich, we liked what Rich had to offer in his services and decided to work with Rich. Rich did a fantastic job from start to end. We are thoroughly satisfied with the service provided by Rich Rosa and would recommend his services to any new or existing home buyer."
Bought: Townhouse in Amesbury, MA
Client: Scott P.&Amanda P.
"Rich, Amanda and I just wanted to thank you again for all your help with our home search. It is hard to imagine that we could have asked for a better broker or attorney to help us navigate the road to the purchase of our first home. We will not hesitate to recommend you and Buyers Brokers Only, LLC to anyone we know who is considering buying a home."

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in East Boston, Boston, MA.
    We were very happy with our experience with Rich from Bayers Brokers Only. From the beginning, Rich was very professional, organised, and available to meet our every need. He walked us through the process of buying our first home, and answered any questions we had along the way. We would be happy to recommend Buyers Brokers Only to anyone looking to purchase a property.  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2013.
    Cannot say enough about how great it was to work with Rich Rosa of Buyers Brokers Only, LLC throughout the process of finding and negotiating the purchase of our first home. My husband and I had recently relocated from out of state for his job transfer to Logan Airport, and were unfamiliar with many of the towns around Boston that might satisfy our various and sometimes divergent lifestyle requirements. Rich answered emails in the hundreds (seriously) over the course of 8 months and accommodated my husband's insane work schedule, often fitting our showings into his own busy schedule with very short notice, and always with good humor. He quickly understood the differences in my husband and my search priorities, mine being location, my husband's being home age and condition as well as commute time, kept them in mind always, steered us away from homes or towns that clearly conflicted with one set of preferences or the other, and steered us toward areas that were sometimes unfamiliar and far afield but which met both our criteria perfectly.

    On home tours Rich walked with an observant and technical eye, analyzed potential short term and future expenses, and was able to detect warning signs of issues that might require more extensive repair or require an inspection by a structural engineer. He was also great at suggesting simple upgrade or renovation options, knew home systems well, and was knowledgeable regarding local costs. Rich's company, Buyers Brokers Only, provides a website that is very educational with many articles and resources to assist homebuyers, and Rich can provide, if needed, a compiled list of local banks, loan officers, brokers and P&S/closing attorneys who had been highly recommended by satisfied clients. Although all the agents at BBO are attorneys, the company reimburses clients an amount at closing, based on the purchase price of the home, to encourage clients to hire real estate attorneys to complete the Purchase and Sale agreement during the process. While an agent cannot double as your attorney, the legal and industry knowledge Rich brought to our house hunt was invaluable.

    It is important to understand that Rich's service style is to encourage clients to make use of free subscription online real estate search engines, including the MLS listing service from his own Buyer's Brokers Only website, and to conduct online searches for properties to tour with him. Rich then arranges the tours of whichever homes the clients wish to see, and does all the rest that any agent will do for clients. This worked perfectly for us, since we did not have a lot of time to waste looking at homes that a traditional agent might guess would meet our tastes, or might be above budget, and we had no trouble finding homes to tour. Rich did on occasion, however, shoot us some listings he felt might interest us, and, as mentioned, steered us to different locales that he thought would be a good match. Most important to us, Rich's extensive expert trade knowledge of the local real estate market extended to towns and neighborhoods that covered a very wide area of Boston metro, metro-west, and north as far up as the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border including the north shore town where we finally settled. His stand-out talent for negotiating really revealed to us the value of having an attorney as our real estate agent. The fact that the offer on our current home was accepted despite a similar cash offer made at the same time, had to do with the fast, professional, and efficient way in which Rich handled the offer negotiation with the seller's agent. It reassured the sellers that the deal would go through. This info came directly from the seller's agent during our inspection.

    On top of all this, Rich is a really nice guy. As older adults negotiating our first and potentially last home purchase, Rich had to deal with our less than flexible personalities, lack of home search and home-owning experience, two very different and sometimes conflicting sets of criteria, and one persistent information junky with constant questions and a picky over-analytical nature who writes overlong emails (guess who). He maintained a level of patience and friendly ease that was professional and remarkable. We searched from September until March, offered on five, got three, had to walk away from two based on problems Rich had discovered prior to, or were confirmed by, the inspection. The third is our perfect (for us) home in a great locale with a decent commute to Logan thanks to Rich. Moved in mid-June. Couldn't be happier. We highly recommend Rich Rosa, Dave Kres, and their attorney/agent associates at Buyers Brokers Only, LLC.
