Stephen has the patience of a saint! My husband and I were moving back to the city from the suburbs and knew we needed to be in Southie or Charlestown and Stephen not only toured many places with us but when we would put an offer in (lost a few places- no reflection of Stephen but really of the current real estate market and our own contingencies) he would take us back to see them time and again while we measured and made sure the place would fit our family. He showed up to open houses or met us at places we had seen already on very short notice and always offered expert insight and again- patience. He is a true real estate professional and we would not have made it through this process without him and his guidance.

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

Stephen was great to work with during our apartment search. The process was very fast, he always made himself available and was extremely flexible working with us to negotiate a win win for both us and the landlord. I'd highly recommend working with him and plan to if we are ever in the market again in the future. - Happy Customer

Bought a home in 2015.

Stephen made our home buying process as stress free as it could have been. He knows the business inside and out and was patient and respectful of our needs/requests/questions/schedules. We will definitely be working with Stephen again when it comes time to buy or sell again!

Showed home in 2015 in South Boston, Boston, MA 02127.

Super helpful and very honest. Stephen responded quickly and efficiently to all of our questions and requests. He was very accommodating and we felt comfortable reaching out to him whenever we had a question. He knows the area very well and seems to have many connections with people in the community. I would absolutely recommend Stephen to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and present real estate professional in the South Boston area.

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

Stephen has been our real estate agent for 5+ years - in that time, he's found us a fantastic condo in Cambridge, and, now, a great home in Belmont. He's been an invaluable sounding board for us in our two home searches, a true advocate for us when we've negotiated with sellers on the purchases, and just a tremendous resource in helping us find the right home for us. With our new home in Belmont, we knew we were looking for a bigger space than what we have with our condo, but were unsure exactly where we wanted to end up. We'd narrowed our search to Belmont, Newton and Brookline, and decided on our price point, and Stephen went to work. He gased up his car and toured each neighborhood - checking out open houses on his own, figuring out what transportation options we'd have to get into the city to work, and compiling a sizable portfolio of options for us to consider. He found old places, new places, places with big yards, places with new appliances - in short, he gave us lots of options to choose between. He also looked outside Belmont, Newton and Brookline to let us know what kind of home we might be able to get in other suburbs at our price. This gave us, as buyers, huge peace of mind - we knew when we saw the home Stephen found for us in Belmont that this really was the best place out there for us. We are so excited to move in and so appreciative to Stephen for everything he did to make it happen.

We would encourage anyone looking to buy or sell a house anywhere in or around Boston to work with Stephen. He's a top-notch agent, a patient and attentive listener, and really, just about the best person you could find to drive around and look at open houses with.

Bought a home in 2012 in South Boston, Boston, MA 02127.

I have worked with Stephen for a few years now. After working with a number of real estate professionals- I quickly realized that Stephen is one of the best. I was new to the Boston market a few years back- Stephen's decade+ of experience/ knowledge of the area was extremely helpful. Stephen understands price points/value, local builders/contractors, new developments, as well as listed/unlisted properties. I highly recommend Stephen if you are seeking to work with someone familiar with the area and reliable.

Sold a Apartment home in 2014 for approximately $575K in South Boston, South Boston, MA.

Stephen McCarthy was a pleasure to work with. My condo was under agrement in just over three weeks because of his market knowledge and agressive approach to get interested buyers to see the property.

Steve handled all the small tasks ( getting unit "dressed" for show (ie touch up paint, cleaning halls, etc) to doing all the final steps with buyer to make sure the deal closed on time.

Wish I had more property to sell....... I would go back to him in a heartbeat.......
