  • Ellen And Janis helped me buy a home

      Janis Lippman is the best! She is knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate (market trends, homes and systems, comps, and providing very accurate estimates for what projects might cost). She is easygoing, kind, funny, super responsive and very knowledgable about Boston neighborhoods and surrounding suburbs. She walked us through the buying process in a stress-free way and recommended a mortgage loan officer and real estate attorney who are both wonderful. She has also referred us to a number of contractors who have been terrific. I first met Janis in 2010, when I was looking to purchase a condo in JP or Roslindale. During that first meeting, Janis told me that she didn’t care if I purchased something in the next month or a year later, but that her primary goal was to see me end up in a home that made me happy. Well, I never did buy a home in 2010, or in any of the next ten years, but fast forward to fall 2020 and my family and I just moved into a beautiful home. During the decade since that first meeting, we (my wife and I) easily looked at over 200 properties. To say that we were picky (especially me) is an understatement, but Janis always treated us in a kind, supportive and informative fashion. She stuck with us through what seemed to be a never ending search with patience and good humor. And now we are in a home that makes us very happy, which was her primary goal at the outset. I’d highly recommend her to anyone, and she will be the first call we make should we ever decide to sell our home.

    • Ellen And Janis helped me buy a home

        We had a phenomenally positive experience with the Ellen And Janis Team! We worked primarily with Lisa Daggett, receiving strategic guidance from Ellen Grubert along the way. On our first day of touring homes with Lisa, we found the home that provided everything we were looking for, and were nervous about making an offer so early in our search. Lisa and Ellen guided us through the process and we were thrilled to have our offer accepted. Lisa and Ellen were refreshingly responsive and creative throughout the remainder of the homebuying process and beyond, despite the complications of our buying team consisting of two couples in the midst of a global pandemic. We've been in our new home for two months now, and are so grateful for everything Lisa and Ellen did to make it all possible. We can't recommend the Ellen And Janis Team highly enough!

      • Ellen And Janis helped me buy a home

          Homebuying process can be overwhelming, intimidating, especially as first-time homebuyer. I cannot say enough good things about Debbie and Marianne, who were my primary contacts. I totally lucked out when I got connected to them through a friend, and any/all recommendations and praises to them are well deserved. I could not have found a better team to guide me through the process. From my first contact/interaction, they have been informative, helpful, honest, responsive, attentive, and supportive.

        • Ellen And Janis listed and sold my home

            These guys earned all 5 stars. Top quality realtors who really knew the JP real estate scene. As an absentee seller living across the country, I was very grateful that they took care of every detail, worked with the other owners in the building to get repairs done, and kept me informed of progress along the way. Their concierge service handled any repairs and staging, and the cost can be deducted at closing. I was able to relax and just leave things in their capable hands. They were very strategic about how they listed the property, my property ended up selling for $75k over list price!

          • Ellen And Janis showed me homes

              We worked with Logan Jacobs in finding an apartment for my daughter. Jacob gave freely of his time, had a great attitude, was knowledgeable, and truly listened. In the end his work did not monetarily reward him as my daughter's situation changed yet his attitude remained as friendly and accomodating as upon our first encounter. He is a true professional. Highly recommend Logan! I expect we will again be conducting an apartment search in Boston and Logan will be our first call.

            • Ellen, Janis, and their team are consummate professionals. We have worked with them to purchase two properties and cannot recommend them highly enough! They are extremely responsive, attuned to the ups and downs of the purchasing process, and are always on top of every detail. We fully recommend the Ellen and Janis Real Estate Team!

            • We first met Ellen and Janis at an open house in 2011 when we were first time home buyers. We knew immediately that they were the realtors we needed to work with. They have been our realtors through the purchase of three homes and the sale of two. Theyve given us great staging ideas to get our home ready for sale and had great advice when it came time to put an offer in on a home. We cannot say enough good things about Ellen and Janis!

            • Working with Janis was an excellent experience! She was kind and informative from our first meeting where she outlined the home buying process all the way through helping us find our favorite home and close amidst the Coronavirus confusion of 2020. Every step of the process was smooth, communication was always excellent and the entire team made it a breeze. We really appreciated everybody's hard work on our behalf and can't wait to see what the next few years in our new home will bring! We would highly recommend working with Janis and team and if we do move in the future we will definitely be coming back.

            • We were referred to the Ellen + Janis Real Estate team based on their local expertise, wide broker network, and strong brand and reputation in the area. They exceeded our expectations on all fronts and were a pleasure to work with and very responsive to our needs throughout the process. From the start, we were very impressed with their go to market strategy related to pricing and timing, especially in the middle of the COVID pandemic. During the showing and offering process, Ellen and Janis were very hands on and were able to pivot our strategy on the fly as we received and evaluated multiple offers before the deadline, including a late night weekend strategy session when they were at a social gathering. We truly felt like we were their top priority throughout the process. We ultimately accepted the offer they recommended, which exceeded our expectations and led to a smooth closing process. We are very grateful for the expertise and guidance or the Ellen + Janis Real Estate team and would highly recommend them to any friends or family that are either buying or selling a home in the Jamaica Plain / Boston area.

            • We were so happy working with Ellen and Janis from the start of this process to the very end! From the time of the virtual walk through of our home when we decided to list, we knew that they were also taking special care during the pandemic to do things safely and correctly. They expertly guided us to the right listing price and helped us to prepare our home for sale. Throughout the process they were communicative and patient with our many questions. Their knowledge of the local Roslindale/JP area market is unparalleled. We felt very taken care of and could not be happier with how things went. Thank you Ellen and Janis!
