Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Medford, MA.
I was fortunate to have worked with Mac during my first time home buyer experience. He is quick to respond, informative and detail oriented. I am the type of buyer who asks many questions and reads through every single document, and he was patient with me and the questions I had. After the home appriasal he helped me with negotiating a price I was comfortable with, with the seller. I was also working with a harder to work with (than normal) buyer and Mac helped me sort out some issues that came up. Overall I would (and have) recommended Mac to any of my friends who are looking to buy a place.

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%

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.

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!!
Mac did a great job in finding us the right property in the area we were looking to purchase. He followed through on details and appointments and was very available to us.
We highly recommend Mac...very flexible and easy to communicate with.He kept us posted on the necessary information with our purchase.
This is the second home Mac helped me find and buy. I am completely satisfied with his work. First of all, knowing my taste and what I was looking for he found the ideal place and I am so happy there. Then he is always punctual, detail oriented, responded to my queries and requests within the shortest delays and accommodated my tight schedule. Also helped with the negotiations (while I was in Europe) and made it work! All around totally happy with his work and professionalism.
We highly recommend Mac. He knows the market street by street, he always had useful insights to share about the places that we visited, e.g., what the chances are of the value going up or down in the future. He has an eye for all the small details and was able to give us accurate estimates on how much it would cost to repair or replace something. He is always very responsive by email or text message; he always replies within a few hours or at most a day. Once we found a house that we like, he walked us through all the paperwork and everything was painless. We highly recommend working with him!
Mac was very impressive during my house-hunt. I had selected four properties and we saw them all within 3 hours. We quickly decided on one of those and Mac was very responsive in the process of re-visiting the place to show it to family and friends, of making the offer (guided me skillfully to a price that was right where I wanted it to be at) and of getting everything set for the P&S within two months! Highly recommend Mac to anyone!
