Ratings & Reviews

We had the most amazing experience working with Sam. We moved from a different country and had a "not so ideal" renting situation, as only my husband had a job and we required off-street parking (pretty hard to come by in Boston for our budget)! Sam was extremely friendly and polite. He made us feel welcomed and actually showed us units that were within our "comfort zone" in terms of pricing and location. He was also incredibly patient with us and worked efficiently and effectively in getting us approved for the original apartment we had chosen. We could not be any happier with our new apartment and with Sam. We highly recommend working with him, you will not be disappointed!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Brighton, Boston, MA 02135

UPDATE: Sam called me and took responsibility for what happened. It is understandable as well as a bit of a paradox that during an extremely busy rental time, the best R.E.P.s often have the least time for client service as they have more listings and literally thousands of messages/calls/texts per day. We agreed on some things and disagreed on some others but he was honest and understanding of my point of view and offered to do whatever he could to fix the situation. As someone who works in an entrepreneurial business, I understand where he's coming from and for him to stand by his business, admit a mistake, honestly apologize for it made a huge difference to me. Mistakes happen, professionals work to correct them in any way they can. Sam did this and I respect him for it and would work with him in the future if the opportunity presented itself.

I put 3 Stars for "Local Knowledge", "Process Expertise", and "Negotiation Skills" only because there was no "N/A" selection available. I repeatedly tried to contact Sam through email, text, and phone call. I provided the listings and asked if I could see them, even offered to accommodate when was most convenient from him and couldn't get a showing. After an initial email back saying he would be happy to help, I didn't hear back from him again except for him to tell me he didn't have any apartments that fit my criteria. This was odd since I was sending him the listings that did. Maybe, he went on vacation, maybe the listings I sent him were outdated, maybe he's actually a great Real Estate Professional if you get him to work for you, but I couldn't. I was practically begging to pay him money for doing almost zero work, and I couldn't get him to respond. It extremely frustrating.

Showed home in 2014 in Brighton, Boston, MA.

Zero responsiveness. Showed us listings and got us excited about working with him to find an apartment and then dropped off the grid. We emailed, called, nothing. STAY AWAY.

Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Brighton, Boston, MA.

Sam was amazing to work with. My fiancé and I had "wants" that became "requirements," like a patio, and a dishwasher, and being near a nice area with a good Walk Score. He really accommodated us and our fluctuating needs as we decided where we'd like to spend the next few years as we develop professionally.

He was incredibly responsive, especially during our move-in day where the previous tenant hadn't replaced the keys. It was definitely and emergency and he handled the whole debacle very well!

I absolutely recommend him if you're looking for someone who really knows his stuff and is patient with sometimes absurd requirements, and, of course, is really funny and friendly.

Helped me rent a Apartment home in Brighton, Boston, MA.

Sam did a fantastic job finding us the perfect apartment! He showed us around Alston, Brookline, and Brighton to help us figure out exactly where we wanted to move and where apartments in our price-range were to be found.

Helped me rent a Apartment home in Brighton, Boston, MA.

Sam was great with helping me search for an apartment to rent the fall of 2012. When the landlord initially rejected the thought of us signing a lease because we had a small dog; he was resourceful in mediating a compromise between both parties that allowed us to stay and things have worked out so well we are staying a second year. My experience with Sam is that he is easy to work with and not pushy unlike many other Realtor out there.

Helped me rent a home in Brighton, Boston, MA 02135.

Sam was fantastic. He was quick to respond to all of our inquiries. His knowledge of the area made sure we didn't waste times at apartments he knew we wouldn't like. Always friendly and personable, his demeanor helped take the stress out of trying to find an apartment for September in Boston. It was great working with Sam, and when my wife and I eventually move out of this apartment he found for us, we'll be calling him to find the next one.

Helped me rent a Condo home in Brookline, MA.

Sam is by far the best real estate Broker I've had in Boston! I was so lucky to hear about him through a friend. I was looking for something really specific, with in a specific price rang and Sam was still able to find me the perfect place :) He showed me a wide selection of units in Boston for sure. I initially had my mind set on one property he should me, but Sam insisted i see more to better my perspective. Guess what? He was right. After viewing a few more I found my current home. Sam was very knowledgeable about the area. He made my search very enjoyable and stress free and I highly recommend him.
