Our history with Steven Cohen goes back to the late 1990’s when we purchased and sold our first condo in the South End. Our condo never made it to open house as Steve located a buyer within days.
When we returned to Boston ten years later, Steven was our first call. To our surprise, Steven was now “Steven & Team.” Steven put Jackie & Barrie on our team. We were a bit unfamiliar with the team concept at first but it worked out great for us. We immediately established confidence in Jackie & Barrie to assist us in our search.
What we had not realized is the extent to which the Boston real estate landscape had changed over the past 10 years and that is where Jackie & Barrie’s expertise was invaluable. At our first meeting, Jackie & Barrie took a detailed diagnostic of our “must haves” and we soon learned that our criteria had changed over the years. With Jackie & Barrie’s knowledge of the local market, we were introduced to Boston enclaves we would not necessarily considered in the past.
The most reassuring aspect of the team model is how seamless the Steven Cohen Team operates. They are an extremely cohesive team and each team member is at all times up-to- date and versed on your search. We had three consummate professionals at our disposal 24-7
No shocker that we are in the home of our dreams! The transaction was flawlessly executed. A well thought-out strategy, viewings that met our strict criteria, and an issue-free closing. We have no plans on going anywhere at the moment but should our plans change, SCT is on speed dial!
Working with the Steven Cohen Team in my recent condo purchase in Boston was fantastic! They completely exceeded my expectations throughout the whole process. Being a first time home buyer, it was nice to work with a team that was highly educated in the process and took the time to sit down and explain it to me. They have a great team dynamic and everyone has a specialized role so nothing slips through the cracks. They also do not pressure you like other agents I have met in the past. I met Jackie at an open house over a year ago and was not quite ready to purchase a condo yet. She put me in touch with Kevin, their rental agent in the office for a 1 year rental and followed up with me periodcally during the year to see when I would be ready to start my search. It was nice to have someone listen to me and follow up appropriately and not just dismiss me because I was not ready at the time like many of the realtors I met had done. I would highly recommend working with this team of educated professionals, you will not regret it!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $975K in South End, Boston, MA.
The Steven Cohen Team has gone above and beyond for us time and again. They helped us sell our home and then buy a new one and managed our stresses and the unique aspects of our situation beautifully. Even now, we call Steven and his team for advice on all sorts of things related to real estate. They respond immediately, are incredibly knowledgeable and straightforward, and do what it takes to make things work.
My wife and I have now used the Steven Cohen Team (SCT) on three separate occasions - when we bought our first condo in Boston's Back Bay area several years ago; when we sold that condo last year; and when we bought our new condo in the Seaport District. The SCT has been excellent to deal with on all our transactions. They have an intimate knowledge of the Boston real estate market, and they did a great job listening to our needs and requirements. As a result, they were able to present a series of properties that were appropriate choices, and which allowed us to develop a better appreciation for what was available on the market. We have been thrilled with the two condo complexes/units that we have purchased with their help. Likewise, when we sold our condo, they were able to present several qualifying offers to us. We ended up reaching agreement with a buyer at a price that was above our asking price within 4 days! Steven and his team members are all a pleasure to deal with. In particular, Barrie and Jackie are excellent buyer specialists, while Steven did a great job leading the sale of our condo. Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend the Steven Cohen Team.
What can we write here that hasn't already been said? All of these other reviews are on point in the fact that Steven, Jackie, and Barrie are consummate professionals with a true passion for their craft.
When we decided to move to Boston from North Carolina, we were under a lot of stress and didn't know anyone in the area. Due to some past experiences in real estate, we were skeptical that any agent would be "worth the commission" - especially in such an expensive (and competitive) market. All of our concerns seemed amplified with this move.
Instead of blindly choosing a random agent, we decided to canvas the neighborhoods that we were most interested in. We asked various strangers who they would recommend and "Steven Cohen Team" was amongst the top choices.
In hindsight we are proud to state that SCT exceeded our expectations and restored our faith in the real estate process. Steven is the kind of leader that commands respect through his wisdom and Jackie and Barrie are the perfect mix of heart and street smart knowledge.
We were confronted with many challenges through our home buying process which included difficult decisions tied up in legal clarity and personal lifestyle location choices. The entire team was patient with our requests, available at all times, and always took immediate when needed. We hope you'll have the opportunity to work with this wonderful trifecta and experience their commitment to their clients first hand. We were happy to have them on OUR side!
I have worked with Steve Cohen's team for over 15 years on five transactions including both sales and purchases. In every case they have provided the most wonderful service, advice and hand holding. Several of the transactions were very quick and they were able to rapidly execute quickly and get a fair price and negotiate the right terms. Several were very drawn out and they held my hand during the ups and downs of a difficult real estate market. I would recommend them without reservations... you are in great hands.
Barrie and Jackie made my first home buying experience extremely pleasant! Fun even!
My boyfriend and I are expecting a baby soon and were eager to get into a nice house that required as little repairs as possible. Barrie wasn't the first realtor I contacted, but she was the first one to seem genuinely interested in my search. We were able to find a house, make an offer and work through the home buying process in one month.
During the time we spend working with Barrie and Jackie we felt very comfortable and well taken care of. Jackie and Barrie are very professional and know what they are doing, and at the same time they are fun and kind and make you feel like your working with a good friend.
I couldn't be happier with this realty team! I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!
Bought a Condo home in 2007 in South End, Boston, MA.
Steven Cohen is a fantastic real estate agent. He is very smart, very intuitive, and very responsible. He tuned in quickly to what we were looking for. Steven is more knowledgeable about real estate prices than anyone with whom we've worked. During our process of looking for a condo he called us whenever something was new to the market and he made himself available on very quick notice. He is also just a truly lovely person. We could not recommend him more highly.
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $1.425M in Wellesley, MA.
The only negative thing I can say about Steven Cohen and his team is that I wish he expanded his service to car sales. He makes home selling and buying so easy, that I wish he could tackle the second most stressful purchase.
Steven Cohen and his team offer stem-to-stern, client-driven home purchase and sales service at the very highest level, whether your dream home is conforming or jumbo, studio or mansion, a fixer-upper or new construction. The Steven Cohen Team has every base covered; there were no questions that I asked that weren't answered to my expectation or need. Having Steven in your corner is like wearing a bullet proof vest in a gun fight: you are much more likely to come out intact and walk away happy. That kind of protection and service can't be oversold.
