    • Blake was great to work with! We were first time home-buyers looking to buy in a new area. He took the time to explain the process to us, was a great negotiator, and had great advice as we looked for a home. He always responded immediately to answer our questions, and made the whole process go very smoothly. We would highly recommend Blake to anyone looking to buy in the greater Boston area.

    • My fianc and I were lucky enough to recently purchase our first home. Blake, our real estate agent, was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire home buying process! As naive home buyers, he was able to answer all of our questions and was there for us whenever we contacted him. He is extremely knowledgeable and was definitely able to reach us a thing or two. I would recommend Blake to anyone!

    • Blake really made the overwhelming process of buying a house much easier for us as first time buyers. He walked us through every step, toured about a dozen houses with us, and finally when time came to put an offer on our dream home, he was an excellent negotiator even though there was fierce competition. He still keeps in touch and answers any questions we might have, which we really appreciate. We wouldn't think of anyone else to work with in the future. Thanks Blake!

    • I'm very grateful I had Blake overseeing the sale of my property on the North Shore. His interpersonal skills and understanding of everyone's needs, timeline, and values were very important and allowed for a smooth process for what was a unique situation, in my case. His communication -- whether it was via e-mail, text, or phone -- was always speedy, clear and concise. He exhibits passion for the industry and the utmost care for his clients. He is honest, fair, knowledgeable and friendly.

    • Blake worked above and beyond right from searching to closing the property. I'm so impressed of him was that he even designed a detailed renovation plan, and interviewed/showed the property to GCs while we are waiting for the mortgage process to complete. Now we have the work already started right after the closing. Blake is golden!!!

    • Blake is a wonderful agent to work with! He worked with us for a few months to find our first home. He is very knowledgeable about all the towns in the north shore and greater Boston area that we inquired about. He is experienced with negotiation and the financial aspect of buying a house and promptly answered all of our questions. Blake was very responsive and even took the time to talk me through the pros and cons when I was having second thoughts about my house. I HIGHLY recommend Blake to anyone looking to buy a home! He made the entire process very easy and enjoyable for us. Thank you Blake!

    • This was our first time going through the home buying process, so we had no clue what we were doing. Blake was there every step of the way to answer any questions we had and to guide us through from start to finish. He always made us feel like we were his number one priority. We'd inquire about looking at a property and he'd get back to us in about 5 minutes with the information and most of the time be able to meet us that same night to look at it! He was always very professional and extremely knowledgeable about what to look for. He's very passionate about what he does, and it shows in his level of commitment to work hard for you get the right house at the right price. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. He truly is the best.

    • Blake was wonderful, very patient and helpful. He showed us more than 30 or so properties, it took us a while to narrow down the search and settle to this one. He was always willing, ready to accommodate and show more properties. He shared his knowledge on the properties and market condition which was very helpful considering that we are new to the place. His guidance during the closing and help with the settling in is very much appreciated. All in all I found him very reliable, easy to work with, my husband and I had a very positive experience throughout. I would highly recommend Blake!

    • Blake was an excellent resource in everything from understanding the financials behind buying a home, to actually viewing properties and closing on one! He was especially helpful and patient as I was a first time homeowner who knew nothing going into the process. He was happy to answer the millions of questions I had and always went out of his way to accommodate my schedule or requests. Blake is extremely knowledgable, friendly and a true professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

    • My friend recommended Blake to me when I started to look around for settling down. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in greater Boston area. He was really approachable and responded to our questions in a timely manner. He listened and put our interest at his top priority and did his best to help us overcome difficult situations.

    • A friend of mine recommended Blake to me about three years ago when I first started looking at houses. I knew I wasn't ready at the time but wanted to get familiar with the market and start doing my research. Blake became more than just my realtor, he was my advisor, partner and friend. We went through every scenario together; he remained patient while educating me about real estate and catered to my needs. Blake earned my trust because he was not biased, never once pressured me into buying. He made sure to stay in contact with me throughout the years, checking in and sending me holiday cards. Three years later, I was ready to buy and never once thought about working with anyone else. He handled the negotiation process like a pro, and always kept us in the loop. As a result we got our dream house for under the asking price, with all the appliances (even washer and dryer) included! I would def recommend Blake to my friends and family, which I already have!

    • Blake is a top-notch agent who knows his craft. He was incredibly professional and on top of his game. We never felt neglected and Blake was knowledgeable about the ins and outs of even the most complex real estate transactions and situations. We always felt that we were competitive yet protected when writing an offer with Blake. He also has many connections and friendly relationships with other agents and brokers so he always knows what is going on in the market and is able to refer his clients to excellent attorneys for pre-approval, securing financing, and closing on a property. Blake is a class act and we cannot say enough good things about him! A genuinely thoughtful agent who will have our business next time we need a realtor!

    • We would not have our dream house if not for Blake. We had been visiting open houses for half a year, and then our first day out with Blake and he showed us the house we had to have! Being first time home buyers, we hadn't gotten pre-approved for a loan, but Blake was there for us. He was able to work his magic and get us a pre-approval, despite being 7pm on a Sunday, allowing us to get our offer in quickly. Blake handled the negotiation process incredibly well. He was able to fend off other offers yet we were still able to grab the house below asking price. Some issues came up during our final walkthrough of the house, and again, Blake handled it like a pro and made sure we came out on top. We were very fortunate to have worked with Blake.

    • Blake was my agent and facilitated the recent purchase of my first home. A multi-family home in Somerville, MA. Given the high demand and very low inventory of suitable properties in the area his professionalism and deep understanding of the market and process were key for making it happen. Blake, kept me on track every step of the way, was very organized and responsive. From the property showing through financing to closing it took just over 30 days. I have been actively looking at properties for over year and a half and not once I felt pushed. In addition, this transaction took place during the recent Boston snow storms which made scheduling of all the milestones very difficult. Blake was very efficient coping with the weather constraints.I would strongly recommend Blake, who is a rockstar of a real estate agent.

    • I would highly recommend retaining Blake's services if you are a buyer. I was a first time home buyer with a very short time frame to find the perfect home. Blake's knowledge of the process and the market ensured that not only did I find my new home quickly, but when my first loan hit a hiccup he was there to suggest a new lender that ultimately helped me close.Things you need in a Buyer Agent that Blake was great at: willing to meet whenever I wanted to / always answered the phone or returned my call quickly / willing to talk through any situation and keeps you informed / instills confidence in your decisions / uses his knowledge of the market to make suggestions around property condition and value

    • Blake was a great help in our home purchase. He knew the area very well and was able to navigate the process quickly and efficiently. From the time we first met with Blake to the time we had an offer accepted was a total of 4 days and only one offer. His guidance was on point and very effective.

    • Working with Blake was a fantastic experience. His professional demeanor coupled with his honesty and reliability made both purchasing and selling my first home easy and pleasant. Blake really went the extra mile for me going out of his way to make sure all of my questions were answered. I have happily referred him to a friend was looking to buy a home.

      - Condo - North End - Buy Side
    • Blake's greatest strength was in the negotiation phase. He was able to complete the transaction at well below asking price for a property in a very desirable location. And, as part of the deal, he also got the seller to include the existing roof deck furnishings. He made all parts of the process very smooth.

    • My wife and I used Blake to sell our home in Newton. His advise and expertise allowed us to price the house properly knowing it would be in demand and sell quickly. As a result, we sold the house for $50,000 more then we listed it for... and he sold it in just one day. We would use him again and recommend him to all buyers or sellers.

    • I was a first time home buyer and Blake helped to make the process seamless. He was extremily easy to get a hold of and prompt to respond to any questions from start to finish. His knowledge of the industry and local market was a nice asset to have especially when buying in a very fast paced Boston real estate market. In what most people would consider a seller's market based upon the inventory available, he was able to negotiate the selling price to what I wanted. I would certainly recommend Blake to anyone looking to buy real estate in the Boston area.
