Jessica was fabulous to work with. As first time homebuyers, we had no idea what we were doing and Jessica had superb recommendations for attorney, inspector, and contractor - among other things throughout the process. She really looked out for us as the buyers, finding things we would have never noticed and holding our hand through the arduous process.Would highly recommend having Jessica on your team as your purchase your property in the Boston area!- Taryn B.
Jessica was awesome to work with. We are fairly new to the Boston area, so she took us around to the area we thought we liked, surrounding neighborhoods, and areas we hadn't thought of. This made us even more confident of what we were looking for. We put in several bids and finally got one that stuck. When we went through the purchasing process, she guided us on what to expect and always looked out for our best interests. She spotted a sudden issue that came up after P&S and helped us negotiate a fix with the Sellers. She also has great contacts for all of the other aspects like legal, contractors, handymen, etc. I highly recommend her to make your home buying process go smoothly.- Dan B.
Jessica made selling my condo as easy as possible.She knew the buyer to bring by and as a result the property was sold after one viewing.She was there for me during the whole process.I really value her expertise and friendship during this process.- Martha K.
Jessica represented me as my buyer's agent. She has tremendous knowledge and exceptional organizational skills. She will stay on top of deadlines and make sure you know what's going on. if you're looking for the perfect home to buy, I can't recommend her team enough.- Aaron S.
A very thorough and speedy service, always attentive to our needs as sellers. This came after advising us in buying the property some years ago and an excellent management of the rental of the property. It's top performance!!- D. Tostmann
I had the pleasure of working with Jessica when searching for and purchasing my first home in Jamaica Plain, and it couldn't have been a better experience. She patiently walked me through the process and equipped me with tools and resources to inform my decision. She listened to my desired features in a home, gave me frank, realistic feedback, and worked quickly and persistently to identify potential homes that fit my criteria. When considering what buying price to offer, she again provided a thoroughly thought through, honest opinion, advocating for a number that I was initially unsure about, but through her empathetic listening and the trust she worked to foster between us, I eventually came to understand and agree with. Once the home was initially secured, she negotiated aggressively, reducing the final price by several thousand dollars due to important details another realtor might have overlooked. Since purchasing the home, she has proven to be a reliable and helpful resource, promptly recommending contractors, real estate attorneys, architects and other vendors, as well as offering ongoing insight into local real estate valuations. Jessica is a warm, generous presence, easy to get along with, but also a fierce defender of her clients. I feel truly fortunate to have found her, and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Boston area.- Chris C.
Jessica is FANTASTIC!! She never stops working for you and will work tirelessly to find you exactly what you want. In this crazy market, we've trusted her to guide us and we couldn't be happier - we found our dream home! I couldn't recommend her more highly.- B. Jakubik
Jessica sold my property "off market," a process I had never even heard of. She successfully guided me through the whole process and sold my property for a good price with minimal disruption to my life. She was sensitive to all the special conditions that I had for the sale and my subsequent move. Everything went very smoothly and I am extremely pleased with our whole interaction.- Kathy B.
Jessica helped me buy my first condo this fall. She was everything I could ask for in a realtor. Jess was incredibly knowledgeable about the area (South End) I wanted to be in and wouldn't stop until she found me the perfect place to live. Jess seamlessly guided me through the process and put up with my incessant questions, even after I moved into my new place. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and am so grateful that I found her. As well as being a wonderful realtor, is really is an incredibly kind, smart and funny women, three qualities that made the whole process all the more enjoyable. I can't recommend her enough!- Jules C.
Jessica was outstanding as she helped us throughout this process by staying on top of the details and getting answers to our questions in a timely fashion. She knows the Boston area real estate market very well and provided us with whatever information we needed to make a decision. Jessica is very professional and we found her to be honest and trustworthy. She maintains the relationships even after the closing. We will do business with her again and recommend her to our friends.- Venky V.
My Fiance and I knew nothing about the real estate market in Boston, except that it was very competitive. Jessica was very patient and explained the process to us in great detail. She also suggested we look at different neighborhoods in and around Boston that we hadn't previously considered. I'm glad she did because we wouldn't have found the perfect place in Brighton without her suggestion! As soon as we went to the first open house at the place we ended up buying, we knew we loved it. Jessica suggested we return to the second open house the next day to make sure we still felt the same way, but reassured us that it was a great find. Since she was very familiar with the area, I trusted her judgement and felt more confident with how much we loved it. My Fiance returned the next day, and spoke with the sellers agent about how we are looking for our first home etc. We put in a full price offer, and even though there were offers higher than ours, ours was accepted because the sellers wanted someone to love it like they did. Jessica gave us the confidence to put in our offer and it wouldn't have been accepted without Jessica's suggestion to visit the second open house. We love our new place and can't imagine living anywhere else!- Buyer
Jessica did a phenomenal job helping me to sell my apartment in the Back Bay.Originally, I was looking to rent a 2BR apartment (needed more space), and I was planning on renting out my 1BR. I met Jess while looking at a 2BR and she mentioned that I should consider selling my 1BR (instead of renting it), noting that the market was very hot. She said that most 1BRs in Back Bay are selling for $500k+. I was very surprised, as Zillow had my estimated my apartment value at ~$450k. However, Jess seemed confident, and so I decided to explore the sale process.Jessica guided my wife and me through the sale process. She walked through our apt and recommended that we list the apartment for $475k, mentioning that its better to price the apartment at a level that will draw interest. She told us which furniture to remove so that our apartment was staged perfectly for pictures and the open house. We followed her advice meticulously. The pictures turned out beautifully. In the end, our apartment was on the market for 3 days before we accepted an offer for $51k over our asking price ($526k sale price). Better yet, the buyer closed in a month and waived the inspection. I would enthusiastically recommend Jessica to anyone that is looking to sell his/her apartment or home!- Richie H.
We worked with Jessica for over two years looking for a multi-family investment property. I can't even remember how many open houses we went to during those two years and Jessica was at nearly all of them. She was always professional, friendly, warm and patient. Finally after about two years we found a great place in South Boston. It was not an easy purchase and there were multiple offers. Jessica guided us through the entire process and helped us to seal the deal. We ended up doing 4-5 months worth of rehab and renovation work before the units were ready for renting. We also asked Jessica to help us with renting both units. Again, this was not an easy process because we ended up having to rent during the off season and when there was a lot of inventory sitting. Despite all these challenges, Jessica was also able to help us find great tenants. Each step of the way, Jessica was with us and she was also extremely supportive and always honest even during the moments we were either nervous or worried about how things would turn out. We absolutely LOVE our place in South Boston and very happy with our new tenants. We would highly recommend Jessica to anyone who wants to buy a new home or rent out their home.- Tina C.
Jessica was attentive, proactive, and knowledgeable throughout the entire process of renting a new apartment. Her networking and good relationships helped get me into my first choice apartment and at a great price! When I'm ready to buy, I'll definitely go to her first.- Laura D.
Jessica was a delight to work with. She was on top of things right from the beginning and kept up with the information even when we tried to slack off. Once we found a home we liked, she really made sure that the whole process was well informed for us and helped us iron out so many details, even the ones she did not have to involve herself. We bought our home 15 months ago and she still keeps in touch with us, willing to help with finding sources in our neighborhood. We have really enjoyed working with her.- Meena V.
Having Jessica as our agent was a godsend. We were first time buyers and Jessica clearly laid out all the steps of the process for us and helped us find a beautiful home. Her knowledge of the different selling agents in the area was tremendous in helping us gauge what to expect. Even when negotiations hit a snag (due to the third party bank assessment - not either party's doing), Jessica was communicative throughout. Ultimately, she got us a great deal and never rushed us through any part of the process. I can't recommend her enough!- MJ S.
Jessica has an insane passion for what she does. To her, selling homes is not only about providing great customer service and closing a deal, its about getting to know her clients so they can trust her judgement and gain further knowledge about the real estate industry as a whole. She is committed, responsive and dedicated, making you feel like you are her only client. Being experienced on both the selling and buying sides, she is tactful and diligent in getting the best possible price for your home. I would never trust anyone else!- Makayla H.
We worked with Jessica when we sold our condo in Dorchester and when we bought in Jamaica Plain. She was excellent to work with on both ends. She is so knowledgeable and was incredibly patient and responsive to all of our questions. She was also able to make really good referrals for everything from mortgage brokers to movers.We were really impressed by Jessica's professionalism, honesty, and thoughtfulness. We highly recommend Jessica and look forward to working with her again in the future.- Alex H.
I have worked with Jessica for over 4 years now and she has helped us buy two houses, sold one and managed a property - everything under the spectrum! I really enjoyed working with her - she is professional, personable and extremely knowledgeable. She really was there for us every step of the way and I am certainly looking forward to working with her in the future.- Seller
Jessica was great helping me purchase my first home in Back Bay. She is very knowledgeable on the market, and she was patient working with my schedule. I am extremely happy in my new home, and I would definitely recommend her to my friends. Jessica is a pleasure to work with!- Julie K.
We worked with Jessica Later when purchasing our South End condo. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped us find the perfect property. During our closing, we traveled extensively out of country and Jessica worked with us and our busy travel schedules to make our closing flawless. Her patience, personality and professionalism made our home buying experience painless and enjoyable. We highly recommend Jessica and have recommended her to friends. We look forward to working with Jessica again in the future.- Nathan U.
Jessica did an excellent job in buyer representation when we were looking for real estate in the Boston area. She was always attentive to our needs, knew her objects extremely well and provided sophisticated analysis of the pro's and con's of objects. Never left a call or an e-mail unanswered. Her response times are fantastic. Jessica goes the extra mile, has a very pleasant and open personality. She now manages our property to our full satisfaction, so it is a pleasure to recommend her highly.- D. Tostmann
Jessica helped me purchase my first home in the South End. She was very knowledgeable about the process and helped facilitate everything necessary to purchase the home. As a first time home buyer, I had many questions, but Jessica was responsive and quick to help. She would respond to my questions even late at night, within an hour or two.- Buyer
Jessica worked tirelessly to find our perfect home. As out-of-state buyers, Jessica went the extra mile to ensure we had a great knowledge of the Boston neighborhoods. Because we had limited time during each of our Boston visits, Jessica ensured that all unit visits were perfectly scheduled and no time was wasted. Aside from Jessicas tremendous work effort, her biggest asset was how intimately she works with clients. She got to know us very well on each visit, ultimately helping us find the ideal neighborhood that fit our personality. Furthermore, Jessica works with an incredible sense of integrity. She always gave us honest advice on units, bidding negotiations and general closing procedures. In one of the most competitive markets, Jessica managed to find us the perfect home at our requested location, closing date and price point. I wholeheartedly recommend Jessica, and look forward to working with her in the future.- Sofia W.
I called Jessica first thing on a Tuesday morning in early April and a day less than two weeks later made an offer on the perfect place after having seen absolutely everything suitable currently on the market. My time was never wasted, every viewing was a reasoned possibility. After a week of viewings and on first entry to my current home she turned and told me that she thought that I was really going to love this one. It was the first time she had said that and she was right. Jessica takes the time to really understand what you are looking for and in my experience of her over the years, that is all youll see. As for the mechanics of the sale process, Jessica is totally professional. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.- S. Martin
Jessica was one of the most experienced and professional real estate agents I have dealt with. She was extremely reliable and very honest throughout all of our interactions. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to the Boston area and has an advanced understanding of Boston's booming real estate market. Jessica was willing to go through great lengths to find us the right home and I would certainly recommend her services to anyone who is looking to rent or buy/sell a home in the Boston area.- Elena M.
Jessica is a consummate professional. She is also rare breed of brokers who do not pressure their clients into decisions. She takes time to understand any concerns we may have and then brings information and data to bear on the decision, not emotion!A wonderful broker!- Diane E.
Jessica demonstrates great knowledge of the Boston and greater Boston real estate markets. Her awareness of the current market was evident when she brought us a listing for a great condo that had not been publicly listed yet - we were thrilled and ended up buying the condo. Throughout, she was professional, showed great attention to detail, and helped us navigate the offer, negotiation, and closing process. I would recommend Jessica to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Boston area.- Buyer
Very knowledgeable and professional - our experience working with Jessica was fantastic. We'd highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or condo. She was helpful through out the entire process from showing to contract negotiation. Thanks Jessica!- Todd M.
I bought my condo in Boston with Jessica last November. She is an outstanding agent, very helpful and very patient. She has an excellent knowledge of the real state market.As a physician and real state investor, I have been involved in several transactions with several different agents for the last 10 years. Jessica has simply surpassed all my expectations. She has a unique and very efficient approach that save tremendous amount of time which is crucial for me.I recommend Jessica without any hesitation for the future home buyers and sellers.- Vafa N.
Jessica is absolutely fantastic. She helped us purchase our first home and the process could not have gone smoother. As first time home buyers we were quite nervous and had a lot of questions. Jessica was always patient, had great answers for us and walked us through every step of the way.When the time came to make an offer she negotiated a below asking sale price. This was an especially remarkable feat because of the hot market we were in where bidding wars were common place.For me the best characteristic of Jessica is that I trust her. I honestly can't recommend her highly enough.- Michael V.
I was a first time home buyer and got referred to Jessica who my colleague used multiple times for buying/selling property in Boston. (I also recommended another colleague to her after I bought my place)She was fantastic from the start and continues to check in months after moving into my new condo. At the very beginning she was very helpful, informative, and never pushed me into buying a property that didn't make sense. As a first time buyer I was very anxious to buy a place, and she even talked me out of buying some locations that looking back on would have been HUGE mistakes. She always went over the positives/negatives and helped me to make the best choice. I got a great place with everything I wanted at an extremely low rate that I couldn't be happier at. She also put me in touch with all the lawyers, mortgage companies and everyone else I needed to close on my place.I would highly recommend her if you were looking to buy or sell any property in the area whether it is your first time or more experienced.- Shane T.
