I am a licensed real estate sales broker who takes a comprehensive approach to servicing my clients, fully understanding the importance of finding the right property that best fits the client's lifestyle, family, current and future goals. I have degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Concord Law School, and the University of Colorado. 

Got a conundrum? I can probably design some clever solution for you, and, if I don't know it, I'll find someone who does. I started in the business as a real estate investor myself. Having the mindset of an investor helps me understand the viewpoint of my clients as home owners, investors, and developers.

In addition to my experience in the residential markets of Boston and in particular, Cambridge, I also have extensive experience with business lease transactions for commercial retail operations and restaurants.

I am a former technology management consultant and investment banker, having worked all over the US, parts of Asia, and Europe. I am also an avid athlete (rower, boxer, ice hockey, ski, volleyball), a certified scuba diver and have even gone sky diving, although I am a golfing hacker.

You'll often find me listening to NPR or watching CNN or CNBC for business and financial market news.

I've closed over 250+ purchase and sale transactions over the past several years - everything from the lows, to the peaks of the market, and the rebound that we're currently in. This means that I've experienced just about every issue that one could ever expect in a transaction - and how to head it off before it becomes a real or bigger issue. Of course, as with Life, issues will "evolve", and my goals are to try to discover them a best and early as possible, to protect both my buyers and sellers - don't get me wrong, there will still be bumps along the road, but my goal is mitigate and minimize them for you. Of course, before I get my clients into a transaction - it must first be negotiated. Those same 250+ transactions - many unique (and standard) solutions have been achieved for my clients. The definition of a "good deal" will mean different things to different people - it could mean the best price that takes into account a market inefficiency, or the best timing, or beating out the competition, or just the "right fit" for your circumstance - again, as with Life, it's not always perfect, but I will do my best and you can be confident about that. Having taken many negotiations classes and trainings in the past (MIT, management consultant, investment banker), certainly doesn't hurt as well - but nothing replaces my plethora of actual and practical experiences.

      Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $375K in North Dorchester, Boston, MA.
      Mac is wonderful! I cannot express how much Mac has helped me find my perfect home. I recently moved to Boston and was looking to buy the perfect house. Mac made sure to help me with the houses I looked into and was very knowledgeable of the areas. He was always there when I called and was happy to answer any question I had. He was happy to meet me for open houses every time and he never pushed a sale on me. He wanted to make sure that I was buying my dream house.

      When I found the house, he gave me the information on who to contact for inspectors, mortgage lenders, and attorneys. This made the buying process very streamlined and easy. When we needed a though punchlist, Mac was able to provide one. He’s one tough negotiator and got a great price on our house.

      During our walkthrough, Mac documented everything that needed to be fixed. He was there for the signing and made sure everything was done correctly. He followed up to see how I was doing after I bought my house.

      I recommended Mac to my friends who are in the Boston area and want to buy a house. Mac is amazing!!! Very professional, knows the Boston area, and always puts in 110%

      Thank you Mac!!!

      Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Beacon Hill, Boston, MA.
      Mac was very responsive. Within a couple of hours he usually got back to me with the information I requested. Without him showing me the home on such short notice I would have never been able to make an offer in time. The only skill he seemed to lack was negotiation but I am not sure if he really had an opportunity to negotiate on my behalf. Overall, he is a good person to work with, and facilitates the offer process.  MoreLess

      Thank you for the kind words! It was a very rare instance (I don't expect to see one again any time soon) to find a foreclosed bank owned property in downtown Boston - and as was forewarned by me to you, banks sell these properties in "as-is" condition and do not negotiate - that was in my 10-page warning disclosure (in fact, I actually tell my clients to avoid these risky transactions, but I know you wanted it and saw the value) - we were one of many competitive offers, and as such, and in fact, I do not believe we were their first pick, but got lucky as their next fallback option - that required my persistence. I am happy though that you have a beautiful condo in the heart of Boston - enjoy and again congrats!!
