  • Adam listed and sold my home

      Adam was fantastic to work with. It's clear that he is a realtor that takes great care in finding the right homes for his clients. He was always responsive, knowledgable, and sought out properties that would be a good fit for me. During Open Houses, I was impressed with his attention to detail. If a house had anything wrong with it, Adam would point it out. When I zeroed in on a home, Adam's guidance was amazing. From the negotiation to the closing, he made sure that the process was as seamless as possible. I'd highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the near future. 5 stars!

    • Adam listed and sold my home

        Adam did a great job. He got us the price we wanted and made the whole process run smoothly. I highly recommend Adam.

      • Adam helped me buy a home

          Adam is a stellar real estate agent. We was dedicated to helping us find our home in a challenging market that required submitting multiple offers, visiting open houses every weekend, and an extended search that lasted over a year. Never pushy yet offered sound advice when we felt we needed a professional opinion.

        • Adam listed and sold my home

            Working with Adam was great. He gave us great suggestions that maximized the value of our home and he was a pleasure to work with.

          • Adam helped me buy a home

              I feel SO lucky to have had Adam as my realtor when buying my first home. I knew very little about the process and Adam answered all of my (many) questions promptly, going above and beyond to make sure I was updated on each and every step of the process. (This included Adam waiting up for the offer and helping me negotiate via phone past 11:30pm). During the inspection, Adam asked questions that I would never have known to ask, consulting and negotiating in a friendly and professional way. Adam's attuned interpersonal skills made every interaction with him natural and stress-free. Throughout my home-buying process, Adam was supportive, kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend Adam to anyone who is interested in a seamless realty experience.

            • Adam helped me buy a home

                Adam was available almost 24/7 and was very patient explaining things to me, which is extra helpful for someone with English as a second language.

              • We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Adam. Prior to working with him as our real estate agent he assisted us as a property manager for 6 years. He was very attentive to details and at one time we needed to get in touch with him in the middle of the night and he picked up and helped us out on the spot. He knows the market well and made many valuable recommendations when we decided to sell our condo. If we still lived in the Boston area we would absolutely use his services again!

              • Adam was very knowledgeable in the market when we reached out to him about selling our condo in Jamaica Plain in Boston. He gave us great advice on what we needed to do to put our condo on the market and kept in touch with us when we decided to wait a few months before trying to sell. After we placed it on the market and after one weekend on the market, he called us right away to discuss our offers and helped us through the entire closing of the condo process. Adam was also excellent in the home searching process, and was very quick in replying to our questions regarding home disclosures or requesting private viewings, and even attending these viewings with us when they were far outside of Boston. He also helped us submit offers to multiple homes in a very timely manner. We would definitely recommend Adam for his great knowledge about real estate, his communication, responsiveness, and ability to make his clients feel valued and listened to

              • Adam helped my husband and I buy our first condo and with his help and expertise, we were able to later sell that condo at a profit and buy our dream house. Adam's knowledge and instincts are impressive. As sellers, we could not have been happier to have Adam in our corner. He did so much behind the scenes to get us the best possible offers--truly above and beyond. When it came time to buy, he gave us a clear and accurate picture of we would need to get our offer accepted. His advice and guidance was stellar. We always felt supported, valued, and like he genuinely cared about finding us the perfect home. Adam also has great contacts he regularly works with. We always felt like we were in the best hands, which was a relief through what can be an overwhelming process. We sing Adam's praises to anyone who will listen! Can't say enough about the time and effort he puts into his clients

                - Alicia L.
              • We purchased a single family home in Newton a month ago. I was traveling out of the country for most of the offer process so depended on Adam to send me all the necessary forms over email. He was prompt and responsive, without which this purchase would never have happened.

                - Tong C.
              • My wife and I had worked with Adam previously to purchase a condo, and we were glad we were able to work with him again to sell that condo and purchase a single-family home. It was great having Adam on our side throughout the purchase and sale process. Not only is he super responsive, and always willing to jump on a call to explain anything we didn't understand, he also helped us frame the decisions we had to make throughout the process in ways that helped us move forward. When we ran into an unexpected snag right before closing on our purchase, Adam sprung into action, kept us calm, and helped us get the deal done to our satisfaction despite the last minute problem. I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home in the Greater Boston area

                - Tim Y.
              • I reached out to Adam after my neighbors had worked with him and highly recommended him. I was not 100% sure whether or not I was ready to sell my investment property that I had once lived in for many years. After meeting with Adam and getting a true sense of his expertise in the industry, I felt a sense of peace knowing I was making the right decision to list my property. From the very beginning of getting my condo listed, to the end, on the day of the closing, working with Adam was truly a pleasure. He's the ultimate professional and maintains a clear line of communication every step of the way. He listened, offered great advice and most importantly, helped me close on my condo in such a timely manner that I will be forever grateful

                - Trevor L.
              • We are first time buyers and aside from attending open houses, we had no idea what the process entailed. Through a friend, we were put in contact with Adam. Adam immediately made himself available without notice to talk us through the standard process. He provided us with helpful information but did not pressure us to work with him as our agent. This was the reason we immediately wanted Adam as our agent, he truly had our best interest in mind. With less than 24 hours notice Adam met us to attend an open house and immediately got in contact with the agent selling the condo that we wanted. Adam was great throughout the process, he helped make us more knowledgeable and provided reliable contacts (ie bank, lawyer) that made the process seamless. Adam was friendly and courteous throughout the process and there was never a time that he was not available to us (including being on vacation).

                - Peter M.
              • I elected to work with Adam to help sell my mothers home in Newton after she passed away. Because of his Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation, I felt Adam was uniquely qualified to handle this challenging and difficult process for me and my family. Adam took the time to listen to our concerns and needs. Based on this he helped craft a selling strategy and timeline that met our goals and expectations. Adam was patient and very helpful with the entire process. He was able to recommend several specialists to help clear the house out and get things appraised and he took care of many small issues that I was not available to deal with (i.e cleaning the gutters, making sure the house was up to code for the fire department). He was truly a full service Realtor! We were very pleased with Adam's service, professionalism and constant communication throughout. I would recommend him highly for anyone looking to buy or sell.

                - Don E.
              • I met Adam at his office in Newton where he gave a proper interview. When the 2016 season started we met again at our first prospective houseFrom that meeting through a dozens of other houses over several months, Adam provided clear game-plans. He shepherded seven offers for us, culminating in a winning offer on our current home. Every time the going got tough, Adam was at our side with recommendations and hard work.

                - Shawn R.
              • Adam provided us with first-class support and service from start to finish. When we were ready to put our home on the market, we did not hesitate to reach out to Adam to represent us. He came to our home and sat down with us to discuss next steps as this was our first sale. He walked through our home and gave us sage advice on economical updates we could make to help secure a great price. Moreover, he recommended folks who could do the work every step of the way. The folks he recommended were talented and reasonably priced. His pricing of the home reflected his knowledge of the market and area and we were able to accept a great offer over asking. When I was having anxiety in the days leading up to the open house and during negotiations, he was responsive and supportive. He made the whole experience incredibly positive and we would highly recommend him!

                - Laura S
              • Adam is an exceptional agent like no other. He provides excellent service, is meticulous with his approach to real estate and sets the staple for professionalism in his field. Adam guided me through my home purchase and made a complex process very simple while managing my expectations in a realistic fashion. He is truly the hallmark of a top professional and I would highly recommend him for all of your real estate needs

                - Dan N.
              • While our son was attending college in Boston we wanted to purchase a condo for him and his roommates to live in. Adam found us the perfect unit and made the transaction so easy for us, especially since we live in California. Adam was always available to answer questions and always provided service at a much higher level than we could have imagined. Adams knowledge of the real estate market in the Boston area has proved beneficial beyond our expectation. The condo has appreciated considerably since our purchase. Without Adams help non of this would have been possible.We would recommend Adam with confidence to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Boston area.

                - Walter U.
              • Adam was an amazing realtor for us. He is a great listener, patient, attentive, detail-oriented and thorough. At the beginning of our process, Adam tempered our expectations, while also getting us excited about the prospect of buying our first place. And when we found the home that we eventually bought, Adam checked and re-checked to make sure we were certain about our decision before putting in the offer. Adam was a constant advocate on our behalf throughout each stage of the buying process: helping us clarify what we were looking for, framing the offer, setting expectations during negotiation, and ensuring the seller followed through with promised items. In addition, Adam always made sure to celebrate with us in moments of excitement and commiserate with us in moments of frustration. We would highly recommend working with Adam for either buying or selling, and couldnt be happier that we worked with him throughout our process!

                - Sophia K.
              • Adam is an incredibly good agent. We worked with him to buy our first home in Roslindale, even to this day I can't believe how patient he was with us. First, we dragged him to 50 homes that ended up being out of our price range. Then we dragged him to 50 more that were in our price range. On the day of our closing I had a case of serious buyer's remorse and told him I couldn't go through with it. True story. Not only did he effectively talk me off a ledge, he did so with the sincerest patience and confidence and kindness. (We ended up closing that day and being extremely happy in that home!). There are many good Realtors out there, but few make you feel like Adam does. He invests so thoroughly in his clients that you really feel like he is personally involved in the transaction and also your satisfaction and happiness. I have known several people now who have worked with Adam, and the report is always the same: extremely knowledgeable, extremely ethical, and 100% committed to his clients. I am so happy that he contacted us after we met him at his open house. Adam won our trust and has held it ever since. I would confidently refer him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home

                - Lauren L.
              • Adam was a rainmaker for me. A very close personal friend recommended him to me when I was having trouble selling my house after several months on the market and massive frustration. Immediately I felt comfortable with Adam because of his knowledge, his network, and his follow-through. He did not mince words with me. He had both a clear strategy and an even clearer execution plan. No detail was too small for Adam. He took a comprehensive approach that looked at all aspects of the sale -- from staging to marketing, and also spent a great deal of time talking with buyers highlighting the special features of the house. Within two weeks of working with Adam, I had a buyer for my house. I have learned a tremendous amount from Adam and recommend him without question to you. Whether you have a luxury home or a much loved, modest property, Adam will get your property sold.

                - Elizabeth W.
              • We have worked with Adam on three transactions over the past few years which speaks to our satisfaction with his services and attentiveness. Adam, brings a very useful and professional perspective and provided excellent counsel throughout the process, particularly when our emotions clouded our objective. He was uniquely attentive and responsive to our needs and represented our interests most effectively. We recommend his services to anyone either buying or selling a home.

                - Peter P.
              • Buying and selling a house is an incredibly important and emotional decision. Adam helped us purchase our first home in Oct 2007 and purchase another home in Mar 2017. In both transactions he has worked incredibly hard to represent our family's needs. But this should be the cost of entry for your Real Estate Agent. Where Adam stands apart is his deep and sincere understanding- of our values, our dreams and our budget-to-dream ratio. Time is a valuable commodity, and Adam took time to research and show us several communities that fit our criteria, that inevitably helped us narrow down our search. Adam is an incredibly compassionate and effective real estate agent.
