  • David helped me buy a home

      Working with David Shorey has been absolutely phenomenal. He is thoroughly professional, incredibly knowledgeable, and a highly skilled negotiator. As a first-time home buyer, he got me up to speed very quickly on the whole process and talked me through every step of the way. Walking through an open house with him is like going to a class in home inspection. He doesn't miss a single detail. His knowledge of the industry, from the big stuff down to the smallest, is unmatched. And on top of everything else, he truly cares about people. Having worked with Dave (we just closed today!), I can honestly say that I would not use another agent.

    • David listed and sold my home

        They know the market and value of homes, they put a lot of work into presenting your home.

        • David listed and sold my home

            My husband and I used Dave Shorey to purchase our Condo 5 years ago and most recently we used Dave Shorey to sell that same condo. Our experience for both the buying and selling sides was exceptional. On the buying side, Dave worked with us to find houses that fit our needs and coached us through the competitive buying experience. He has amazing experience in the Cambridge / Somerville / Arlington / Watertown area. On the house I purchased, there was a lot of back and forth during the negotiation process on the price and work that would be completed before the sale. Dave was extremely honestly on the market value and how much the upgrades to the home would cost. I am very happy with the sale price of the home and am thrilled with my home. Dave continued to be a resource after the purchase, recommending plumbers/electricians in the area. Throughout the process Dave and his team were helpful and actively working to make sure we had the best experience. On the selling side, Dave and his team did an extraordinary job. A few months before our house went on the market Dave came by our house and gave us a list of recommended updates to get maximum value for our home. He has a great eye and made sure our home was staged to showcase the home. A few weeks before the house was listed, he lined up photos, a video and a 3D tour to make our home shine in the marketing. In my opinion, our home stood out among the crowd of homes listed in the spring market because of the excellent marketing job. After our home was on the market, our contractor for our new home let us know that the project was delayed another month. We were immediately worried that we would be out of a home and started looking at rental units to bridge the gap between the sale of our current home and the move into our new home. Dave completely understood the situation and encouraged us to let prospective buyers know that the ability to stay in our home a little longer than average would make their offer stronger. In the end, all 5 of our offers allowed us to stay in our home an extra month. Dave handled the competing offers extremely well and he was able to get us more than we ever anticipated for the sale of our home. We sold our home for $45,000 more than our listing price with no contingencies and the ability for us to stay in our home for an additional month. My husband and I were simply ecstatic with the listing experience. Dave and his team didn’t stop their work after an accepted offer. They ensured that everything was lined up for the closing. When we needed to have a condo trustee, who had just had surgery and was housebound, to sign a notarized form, Dave had a notary come out to his home to make sure it was signed before our closing. He truly goes above and beyond. I highly recommend you use Dave and his team for your next home purchase or sale. It will be worth it.

          • David listed and sold my home

              Hi Dave Just wanted to reach out and let you know how pleased I was with the entirety of the transaction on my families house on Mountain Ave. Although a tremendous amount of work, the end result was truly fantastic. I can think of few endeavors that have gone as well. Your advice and estimates from the beginning, on upgrades needed, listing price, and contractors were on target. My families home was restored to its deserved glory and I didn't leave anything on the table for speculators which was important to me. Thanks again.

            • David helped me buy a home

                We had the pleasure of working with David to purchase our first home. David and his team did an outstanding job of helping us to fully understand the process and guided us through everything step by step. We so appreciated David's incredible responsiveness and willingness to answer all of our questions. He helped us to find and buy the home of our dreams and we couldn't be more grateful.

              • David listed and sold my home

                  Dave and his team were very professional. Dave gave us great ideas to prepare the home which sold within a week of going on the market. Dave set up a very professional website and video tour to market the house. He was very responsive to our questions and concerns and is highly trustworthy​.

                • David helped me buy a home

                    Dave has been helpful throughout and even after the process of buying my first home. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone, including first time home buyers. Dave drew from his experience throughout the process to help me feel informed while making decisions. He recommended an awesome lawyer and a great mortgage guy as well. Thanks again, Dave!

                  • David helped me buy a home

                      As first time home buyers, my husband and I could not have felt more supported or in more capable hands than we did with Dave Shorey. Dave came highly recommended to us and he absolutely did not disappoint. He made sure we were aware of every step in the process/what to expect next, had great tips and suggestions, and was overall just a wonderful person to work with as buying a home can bring on a lot of stress, uncertainty and apprehension. Dave was honest and straightforward with us, and did a great job laying out and guiding us through the options that we had during each pivotal step in the home buying process. He was hands on and persistent when we needed him to be (without us needing to ask), and really went to bat for us to ensure we felt comfortable with the deal we were making and the people we were working with along the way (he had excellent recommendations for home inspection, pest extermination, lawyers etc.). The icing on the cake was how responsive, flexible, and available Dave made himself to us from the beginning to the end. We had some hiccups along the way with the sellers, and Dave was on top of everything causing us ZERO stress. We cannot thank him enough for making our experience so wonderful!

                    • David listed and sold my home

                        David helped my wife and I sell our condominium in Watertown and at the same time purchase our first multi-family home in Waltham. This was a tricky process and we would have been completely ill-equipped without Dave's guidance, experience, and professional expertise. Thanks to Dave's help and skillful negotiations, we sold our condo for maximum profit and purchased our new home effortlessly. He broke down an otherwise daunting process into a series of manageable tasks, making the whole transition very seamless. We can't wait to work with him again!

                      • Dave Shorey and his team were exceptional! Dave was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable while guiding us along in the process of selling our condo, and made sure we had all the resources we needed to set us up for success. He recommended a handyman and cleaning crew to help us spruce up the place, advised us on how to tidy and stage our condo, and aligned quality photographer and videographer to really showcase our property. His advice, attention to detail, and fantastic marketing made the sale of our home as easy and stress free as possible. I would gladly recommend Dave and his entire team if you are looking for a trustworthy, knowledgeable, hard-working real estate team!

                      • Dave Shorey served as my realtor with two home purchases in the past four years. Both times his expertise was clear, and I felt confident that I was in good hands. Dave has a pulse on the Boston area housing market - In the Arlington market where i was buying, he had the most recent week to week updates and was up to speed on developments before they were public. Dave is also a pleasure to work with. He's easy and fun to chat with, responsive, and professional. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in the Boston area!

                      • Great experience with Dave and his team. He helped my wife and I find a terrific home that matched our needs. He offered tons of advice along the way. The real clincher on the quality of his service was his attention to detail. He caught several discrepancies in the documents and was able to give us a great bargaining position. I normally feel like realtors don't earn their commission. Dave definitely earned his for us!
