Bought a home in 2013 in Back Bay, Boston, MA 02111.

Valerie is wonderful. She is friendly and her knowledge of the Boston real estate market is excellent. She and her associate Gillian were very helpful. They asked what property I was interested in purchasing and would only show the ones I liked. I would highly recommend them.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in East Cambridge, Cambridge, MA.

Valerie and Keith sold our 1M+ Cambridge property for near asking price within about a month. To provide perspective, a previous broker had not even gotten an offer in six months. We found the process from beginning to end to be positive--the apt. was priced right, the traffic through the property was brisk, and the paperwork all went very smoothly. Valerie and Keith, as well as their professional sales staff, know the Boston metro area, they work very hard for their clients(two open houses on a holiday weekend!), and they have a feel for people that enables them to match the right property to the person. Valerie found our buyer at another of her open houses for a different property that she was listing. Seeing that the property was not right for the client, she mentioned our property to the buyer's broker, and it turned out our property was perfect for him. It is this kind of proactivity that we were looking for, and found in Valerie and Keith.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Dorchester, MA.

We had a wonderful experience with Valerie and Keith. As the condo we were selling was in Boston and we had moved back to Ireland. They made everything easy and stress free. I would highly recommend this seamless and professional service, topclass.

Sold a home in 2014 in Blue Hill Falls, Blue Hill, ME 04614.

We interviewed 5 agents. Valerie and Keith did the most thorough analysis of our neighborhood and market. Their recommended marketing process was sensible. Their recommended listing price was the highest. They worked hard. We closed within 1% of asking, for the highest price ever for the neighborhood. We recommended them for three other sales, each of which was successful and the clients were pleased.

Sold a home in 2013.

Valerie and Keith were excellent to work with! They sold our home in one day. We were very happy with their care and professionalism. When we decided to sell we interviewed several agents, many with larger firms. However, the presentation and information they provided far exceeded anyone else. We will definitely use them in the future.

You had such a stunning condo, it was a pleasure to sell. The person who bought it couldn't be happier. Thanks for choosing us, it was great working with you.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $1.675M in Back Bay, Boston, MA.

I first met Valerie and Keith as the property manager for the condo building which was saddled with issues. They were extremely helpful in addressing our problems. A year ago I contemplated selling but was not sure they would produce the same result in property transactions. As a trial, I used them for renting my condo unit, and came to the conclusion that they are perhaps stronger in selling than managing. I then listed the property with Valerie and Keith in July, it was sold to a cash buyer in the first few hours. While the price played a decicive role in this deal., Valerie and Keith's efforts and knowledge of the building as the Property Manager certainly made the difference. I didn't give them a full five stars in two areas. This reflects the less than perfect operations in their office, which is probably due to a shortage of staff, a common issue for a new business.

Sold a home in 2014.

I have bought or sold 3 properties and have had Keith rent my Boston condo for the last few years. In a market saturated with real estate brokers, this pair really stands out. They know the market cold and have the contacts you need, whether you want to buy, sell or lease. More importantly they have the personal ethics and deal making ability that is so critical to making a transaction happen! Their after the sale support is also excellent and I have often called them just to get their advice. I think I know professionalism and I see it here. I recommend Valerie and Keith without hesitation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Back Bay, Boston, MA.

Valerie and Keith placed us in our dream home. When my husband and I decided to move back into the city we developed a list of difficult requirements, including covered parking. We contacted Valerie and Keith via a Zillow listing and they immediately took on the challenge. They were able to quickly identify all available properties and give us the history on each. They did their homework on all fronts including recent sales in the area and trends. When we toured the properties, they were able to prompt questions that identified any concerns or issues. Their direct, straight-forward approach was refreshing. We also appreciated the white glove service they provided, including chauffeuring us around not only while we were looking, but also to the signing. In the end, we found the perfect home that met all of our tough requirements. We were so pleased with the level of service and professionalism displayed by Keith and Valerie that we asked them to sell our property in Winchester. They staged the property beautifully and held a 2-day open house over a weekend in June. By the end of day 2, we had 5 offers, 4 of which were over our asking price. We closed immediately with an all cash deal. We recommend Valerie and Keith without reservation.

You were both incredible to work with. You knew what you wanted and we were thrilled that you got it. It is always so satisfying when dream buyers get their dream home. We're excited to have you in our neighborhood. Best, Valerie and Keith

Sold a home in 2014 in South End, Boston, MA 02116.

Having lived in the Back Bay and the South End of Boston for over 30 years, I have had experiences with many realtors. In my opinion, they are the most patient and thorough realtors around. They had correctly valuated my two properties and they sold very quickly. Not only that, they are nice people. I would definitely contact them again for my next real estate transaction!

We loved working with you on both of your properties. Between the views and you being so accommodating it made the showings a breeze. We were thrilled with the numbers we achieved for your condos. It was a pleasure working with you.

Sold a home in 2014 in Charlestown, Boston, MA 02129.

I have two experiences with Valerie and Keith. First, they tirelessly marketed and sold my parents condo in the Leather District. Their dedication to finding a qualified buyer during a tough market was exempleray. Second, Gillian of their office was an amazing ally in my hunt for a 2 bedroom condo last spring. Although inventory was limited and the market competitive, Gillian helped me find a condo that I just love and at a great price. I'd recommend Valerie, Keith, and their colleagues any day.

There is a saying "that all great things are worth waiting for", that certainly applied in your case. Your condo was perfect for you and we knew it as soon as we saw it. Enjoy it for many years to come. Best , Post Shirley Team
