Ben is a phenomenal broker. My husband and I have used him twice to rent out our condo in the Southie area, and both times he has been able to rent it out within days. <br/><br/>If you are looking to rent or rent out your place, then Ben is your guy! We would not go with anyone else. He is a pleasure to work with, and is extremely professional!
Helped me rent a home in South Boston, Boston, MA 02127.
As my husband and I prepared to move from Chicago to Boston, I was convinced we didn't need a broker to help us with our search. But, truth be told, we never would have found our future South Boston apartment had it not been for Ben Barrett.
Before finding Ben, I contacted several other brokers during our search. All of them eventually fell off the face of the earth. Ben stuck by us the whole way through.
From the very beginning, he was refreshingly responsive, patient and tirelessly enthusiastic -- which was helpful during the sometimes disappointing apartment search process. He was constantly bringing us listings that fit our criteria, eager to please. When one apartment didn't work out, he didn't make us feel guilty or picky; he'd simply take the learnings to offer new alternatives and eventually hone in on the best property for our needs. Since we were searching remotely from Chicago, Ben was willing to be flexible and worked with my Boston-based sister to check out properties for us. And as we prepared to sign a lease, he was exceedingly patient with my constant questions, myriad requirements and paralyzing indecision.
AND THAT'S NOT EVEN THE MOST AMAZING PART ...
When I was stressing about not knowing what size curtains to buy for the apartment windows and showers, Ben took a trip to the property, snapped photos of everything and Photoshopped in the exact measurements. He also took detailed notes of the curtain rods. He thinks of everything.
Ben will go above and beyond for you. Stop stressing and give him a call!
Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2014 for approximately $425K in South Dorchester, Dorchester, MA.
Best realtor I have ever worked with. Hands down. I only use him now. Professional, punctual, well dressed (this is important to me), prepared. I have worked with him to find residential rentals for myself as well as commercial space to move my business into, and most recently to buy my first house. Ambitious attitude yet easy to work with.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Chelsea, MA.
Ben helped me buy a my current condo at the Spencer lofts back in 2012—a very highly sought-after unit at the time and with his help we were able to get it for a very reasonable price on very short notice, beating out multiple other offers in the process. I am kind of a lost cause when it comes to the tedious and overbearing nature of real estate procedure, especially when it comes to the lenders, and Ben helped me out tremendously. I've known him for years and have recommended him to anyone I know who is interested in purchasing or selling real estate.
