I was very impressed with Randal Engelmann and his team at REteamwork. He has deep knowledge of the West Roxbury/JP community, helped us set appropriate expectations on the types of homes within our budget and was able to navigate the complexities of the home buying process with ease. He was extremely responsive to our many questions and also has a great network of very qualified vendors to help with a variety of needs (attorney's, lenders, locksmiths, contractors, etc.). I would highly recommend him and his team- Matthew Metivier - Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in West Roxbury, West Roxbury, MA.
Erik and Randal were indispensable for us in this process. I can't recommend them more highly. We just moved into our new home in JP and I know that Erik's expertise and guidance had so much to do with us finding the right place, and having our bid accepted. Erik worked tirelessly with us for over a year - he would meet us every time we asked him, and would spend time with us at each open house talking to us about the market and how the condo fit in to the overall picture. He would take us into the basement, point out and issues, and educate us so we would know more with each new open house. He never pressured us, always made us feel comfortable, and made us feel supported at every step of the process. They are meticulous, honest and warm. They are both so respected in the real estate community - we didn't realize this, but who your broker is matters. People trust Erik and Randal, and having your name connected with them will open doors. They also know everyone, and are familiar with so many of the homes in the area. We met with several other brokers, and we are so happy that we made the choice to work with Erik and Randal.- cameronandersondesign - Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
We went to Randall and Erik because we had been working initially with another well-known office, and we could not understand the market analysis they provided. Erik and Randall quickly responded to our inquiry and almost instantly provided a market analysis that seemed much more logical. We are sure that they got a better price than we would have if we had gone with the first group. Our house sold way over asking, with multiple offers. They provided great advice and also listened very well to our concerns at every point. Things went very smoothly and the sale closed without a hitch. Very nice and completely professional team who managed to keep us calm through the whole process.- Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Boston, MA.
Eric and Randall understand the sellers concerns and accommodate all contingencies. They are a pleasure to work with, give great advice and support and follow through on all the details; from the agreement through the showing to the sale. We would reccommend them wholeheartedly.- Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
Outstanding. Superb. Extraordinary. These are just some of the words that describe my experience with Eric and Randall. From the beginning, they knew how to market the property. In my case, I had a large 2 family home and they helped me convert to individual condos to maximize resale value. The RE team did all the heavy lifting. They found me painters, cleaners, landscapers to spruce up the property. They also took care of all aspects of the condo conversion including setting me up with the architect and closing attorney. The process of selling both units was very simple and painless. They are really are the experts you can trust and turn to. I highly endorse Eric and Randall for any property you may be selling or purchasing. Chris from West Roxbury- Chris Chronis - Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
I loved working with Erik and Randal on selling my house. They were fast and efficient and understood that i sometimes needed some hand holding. My place sold in record time and for more than i would have hoped. Thanks Erik and Randal!!- Sold a Condo home in 2016 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
I met them by chance when I started my condo search and they were hosting an open house in JP. Randal and Erik were very knowledgeable about the market in JP so I decided to work with them to help me find a new home. They helped me survive a very crazy spring housing market and kept me on track and with their help, I landed the condo in JP I was looking for at a price that I was willing to pay. I couldn't of asked for a nicer and more professional team to guide me through the process.- Arno Puskar - Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
We used Erik and Randall at Focus Real Estate to purchase our current single-family house and sell our former condo. Katie and I were extremely pleased with their service, knowledge, and support during these transactions! They both know the area extremely well and gave us deep insight into houses that would fit what we were looking for! They had all of the answers to our questions and also asked us great questions so we could have a focused and successful search. Knowledge, support, and experience! Thank you Erik and Randal! We would highly recommend them to any prospective buyers and sellers in and around Jamaica Plain!- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
Erik and Randal really take the time to understand what you are looking for and carefully do their research to ensure they find what you are looking for and make the process as easy as possible.- Michael Lafarr - Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Roslindale, Boston, MA.
We worked with Randal and Erik in 2014 as our agents for both selling and buying -- we would work with them again in a heartbeat! They made the entire process easy, straightforward and even fun. Can't recommend the Focus team enough!- Bought a home in 2018 in Union Square, Somerville, MA 02143.
My wife and I worked with Randall and Erik when we sold our condo in Jamaica Plain and they were amazing! Very knowledgeable of the local market, and also amazingly helpful in finding us a new home outside of Boston. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.- Andy Tamulynas - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Milton, MA.
Randal, Erik and Meg were outstanding with our home sale. From our very first consultation we were thrilled with how thorough and knowledgable they were. When we decided on a listing price we were a little concerned that it was too low but their strategy worked perfectly. We ended up with many offers well over asking and sold for much more than we ever expected. After accepting an offer they were extremely helpful with the rest of the process from recommending an attorney to walking us through every remaining step. We highly recommend the FOCUS team!- Greg Brady - Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Roslindale, Boston, MA.
Randal and Erik are excellent at what they do and are excellent human beings to boot. They run a tight ship and they are extremely knowledgeable. They are also inhumanly generous with their time. We were entirely new to buying a house in the Boston area. Randal and Erik walked us through everything and taught us a ton. They were highly responsive to our questions. They were available to join us for open houses and inspections. Meg and Erik and Randall provided top notch support throughout the entire closing process. And, of course, Erik and Randal are just excellent people. We are so grateful for everything they did to help us to buy our place. If you need a real estate agent, look no further. These two are top of the heap.- Matthew Smith -Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in West Roxbury, Boston, MA.
The focus team was awesome!!! Bunny and Randal provided us with some helpful advice to make our unit appealing. They assisted us with contractors and vendors that were solid and treated us well. During the listing, Bunny stayed in touch and Meg helped walk us through all of the administration issues. What I really appreciated is the fact that they saw a similar listing drop their price to ours and they became really creative with the open houses and it worked!!! Once we were under agreement Team Focus made sure we had all of the paperwork completed quickly, they referred us to an excellent Attorney and she stayed on top of any issues that arose. The whole team at Focus treated us right. Thank you Focus!!!- Sold a Condo home in 2019 in South End, Boston, MA.
Randal and his team helped me buy my first home. They were very prompt with answering all my questions and guiding me through the process.- Natasha Sahijwala
Randal and his staff did a terrific job helping my family sell one condo and buy another in JP! His expert advice helped our sale go smoothly and fetch an excellent price during a tight late fall timeframe. Focus is a joy to work with, we highly recommend them.- Ben Carlson
Randal and team provided so much support and guidance in selling our condo and buying our new house. We are all loving the new house, feel so at home already, and still can't believe it's really ours. We are so grateful for all of their help to get us here. Highly responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and helpful.- Elizabeth B. Boston, MA
This is the second time that we have worked with Erik and Randal and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is in the market. We worked with them to sell our home in Roslindale and purchase one outside of Boston in an attempt to make commuting a bit easier for my partner and me. We decided to place our house on the market during a time when the dialogue for every real estate conversation indicated how it was a sellers market and that houses were selling very quickly. How could we resist? I remember two weeks into the process we wondered why havent we received an offer for our home? Randal made a couple of suggestion on staging that transformed our place into something we felt was more marketable and we waited. After three weeks we contacted Randal and indicated that we felt like we should take the house off the market and finish the attic. This is where Randals expertise paid off once again. He urged us to be a bit more patient and not do something that seemed a bit drastic. He indicated we had a beautiful home and that someone would want to make it their home just the way it was and suggested we do not change anything. Sure enough an offer came through and the rest is history. Now it seems like a VERY short amount of time for the process. Erik and Randals professionalism, kindness, careful planning and collaboration made the process a seamless process. No matter where we were in the process we were always greeted with a genuine smile, encouragement and helping hand. We would recommend Erik and Randal to anyone who thinking about entering the market to buy, sell or do both.- Bought and sold a home in 2013 in Westview, Franklin, MA 02038.
My wife and I worked with Randal to buy a condo in JP, our first home. Randal is extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood (street by street). He also knows and, it seems, has a good reputation with other brokers in the JP area. When we said that we also wanted to look in Dorchester, he was happy to help us tramp all over there as well (and in some miserable weather!). As first-time homebuyers, we were lucky to have someone like him to help us. He came with us to open houses, contacted people he knew whose homes were not yet on the market and basically did a bunch of things that are probably above and beyond the call of duty. The market was a little tricky when we were looking Winter/Spring 2013. Places were going quick but Randal never bullied or pressured us. He was friendly and accommodating and accessible and generally a breeze to deal with. My wife and I have weird schedules and he was always flexible and patient. We have been very pleased with the home in which we ended up. I'd work with Randal and Erik again. I hope they get the credit they deserve.- Bought a Apartment home in 2013 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
We met Randal when he sold our daughter's JP condo. He subsequently sold ours, and helped us to find one more suited to our needs. Randal knows the market well, he listens, and doesn't waste your time showing inappropriate properties. He is fully aware of all the rquiremnts of the processes to buy and sell prperties, pays attention to details and follows through. His efforts brought us an excelkent price on the condo we sold, and a good price on the one we bought. Finally, he is a nice guy, which made everything more pleasant. We recommend him highly.- Bought and sold a home in 2014 in Glenridge, Dover, MA 02030.
Randal was very helpful in the entire process as the buyer's realtor. He knows the Jamaica Plain market very well as he lives there. We had a lengthy negotiation period, in which he was helpful in getting us to a agreed upon deal. Randal was always available for the numerous home visits we needed for our architect & contractor to visit the property after the signing of the P&S but before the close. Randal is both effective and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Chris Joyce- Bought a home in 2014 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA 02130.
Randal is a seasoned professional! He is very knowledgeable of the area and, most importantly, puts the needs and wants of clients first. I have worked with many Realtors over the years and found Randal to be one of the few agents who put finding the perfect home for our family, and the perfect buyer for our old home, above all else. His professionalism and ability to build relationships was key to helping us sell our home quickly, even after an offer fell through. It was a pleasure working with him and his team and I would highly recommend them to potential buyers and sellers.- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Brookline, MA.
FOCUS was fantastic, and Randal was a picture perfect professional from first meeting through close. He met us at work, walked us through the process and let us know what to expect. He gave us tons of opportunities to explore online that covered pretty much exactly the kinds of places we asked to see. We went through the options and helped him hone in on what precisely we wanted. Then, his picks to show us were spot on: we put an offer on the fourth place we saw. When it came to process, we have to say, FOCUS is totally hep with the modern world (we put our offer in on line from our phones from the oyster bar in Grand Central Station). Randal's connections--for mortgage, legal, home inspection, etc.--allowed us to close in about 45 days, so clearly FOCUS knows the ropes, is ready to move. Even on the day of closing, he was there, happy, fun and in our corner to make sure we had everything we needed. Honestly, we had a little anxiety going into the whole home-buying process. Rightfully so: it's a big decision, it's a lot of money; and for most of us, it doesn't happen very often. We had snags, of course, like so many other stories, with lenders and details. It ended up, however, being a lot less pain, a lot less stress and a lot more fun than we ever thought it could be. That's not all because of Randal and FOCUS, but, we're pretty convinced that most of it was. We can't recommend FOCUS enough- Bought a home in 2016
I have know Randal for 15 years and he helped me with selling and buying 5 properties. He has always shown a deep knowledge of the local market and the intricacies of the real estate buying and selling process. Now Randal and Erick will grow Focus to be the best real estate agency in Boston. I highly recommend Focus to anybody interested in buying or selling a property. Thanks- Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in South Dorchester, Boston, MA.
From our first introduction, Randal and his team were diligent and helpful in buying our first home. We started our home search from across the country and with minimal familiarity with the area we were looking to buy. Once we found the perfect place, his experience gave us a real edge amongst multiple offers. Randal is the man in JP. He knows the area extremely well and knows everyone in the community.- Bought and sold a Condo home in 2016 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
Randal at FOCUS Real Estate is truly amazing. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the Jamaica Plain area and was a pleasure to work with throughout the process of selling one home and buying another. I cannot imagine a better experience. Randal guided us every step of the way when listing our home - he coordinated excellent photos, great marketing materials, and expert advice on listing price. We had multiple offers after our first open house - all above asking - and a fast, seamless sales process. On a parallel track, Randal was also helping us purchase a new home! Randal seemed to know what we were looking for immediately. He was available at all hours - attending open houses - and advising us where to compromise and where to hold firm. He encouraged us to visit a home that I would never have visited on my own (based on less than great photo quality) and it turned out to be our dream home. Randal helped with all aspects of purchasing the property - from selecting a lender, to helping with the inspection - even offering some solid remodeling advice! Events unfolded quickly due to Randal's being on top of every single detail all of the time. I could not have asked for a more positive experience. HIGHLY recommended!- Sold a Condo home in 2016 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
I have worked with Randal E who is a very knowledgeable, professional, and client-focused agent. If you are looking to buy or sell in the Jamaica Plain area and its surrounds, l highly recommend the FocusRE team!- Bought a Apartment home in 2012 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
Randal sold my condo in JP very smoothly. Everything happened just the way Randal suggested it would during our initial discussions. Randal and his team are extremely responsive. Randal also has a warm, supportive, calm style coupled with very strong expertise that I found extremely reassuring - when I got nervous or had questions, he was right there with a response or assistance that was right on the mark. Randal cares about our local community and our neighborhoods, which matter deeply to me too. I trust Randal and recommend him to you without reservation.- Sold a Condo home in 2017 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
Randal and the Focus team provided excellent service throughout this process. He patiently showed us several properties, helping us to understand our priorities. He knew the area well. He was competent in terms of all of the process aspects of purchasing a house. He connected us to trades people as we needed them. He calmly guided us through each step of the process. I recommend him highly!- Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
The FOCUS team lead by Randal Engelmann for our sale was so far superior to any other agent we have ever used in the past. I would highly recommend Randal's team and support staff based at FOCUS for their professionalism, expertise and flat out competinace in all things real estate. They were just an absolute pleasure to work with generating fantastic results.- Sold a home in 2017
Randal and the FOCUS team did a fantastic job in marketing and selling my home. They knew the market price, showed the house very well and ultimately helped me sell the house for far over asking. In addition, their team was excellent to work with throughout the process. They were proactive in their approach, very responsive and thorough. I would highly recommend the FOCUS team.- Sold a home in 2017 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA 02130.
We are very grateful to have gotten to work with Randal when we sold our home in West Roxbury. Randal was responsive and extremely helpful throughout the process, making sure someone was at the house for numerous inspections, certifications, and repairs, coordinating everything and working around our schedules while we were preoccupied with a difficult cross-country move. Our sale turned out to be a more challenging process than we had anticipated, but Randal's expertise, good humor, and extraordinary interpersonal skills kept the process moving along as smoothly as possible.- Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in West Roxbury, Boston, MA.
Randal and his team at Focus RE made the whole real estate experience smooth and stress free. He was knowledgeable and helped navigate the entire process with his expertise and experience in a way that helped me make the best decisions and get to the outcome I wanted. His attention to detail and reliability was top notch. I wouldnt work with anyone else (and I have had a few prior real estate transactions).- Bought a Multi Family home in 2018 in Roxbury, Boston, MA.
Randal is a fabulous real estate professional. He's helped us with both the buying and selling processes and has a wealth of knowledge that proves essential as well as reassuring during the convoluted path to a new house. He's also been willing to talk us out of selling when it wasn't the right move for us. I recommend him highly.- Bought and sold a Townhouse home in 2017 in Jamaica Plain, Jamaica Plain, MA.
Randal helped me buy my first home and coached me through the process. It went super smooth. Because it was a duel agent deal Randal wasn't able to coach me too much on Negotiating but i'm going to go ahead and gave him a five out of five because I fully expect that he would be based on my experience with the other things.- Bought a home in 2018 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA 02130.
Randal helped us sell our condo AND purchase a new home and it worked out seamlessly. He advised us on staging our condo and hired a professional photographer that most definitely helped our condo shine. Buzz was created before the open house and it sold above asking the first weekend. For our purchase, he helped relieve our anxieties with his knowledge and insights, and connected us to a financial adviser that reviewed all of our options and ensured we got the lowest interest rates available. Even years after purchasing, we have sought his advise around home improvements and he has always made great suggestions. We wholeheartedly recommend the Focus Team without reservation!!- Bought and sold a Condo home in 2014 in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.
Randal was helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and supportive. He answered my questions quickly and checked in with me throughout the buying process. Additionally, he was able to explain many things about my new home during the walkthrough-his expertise is vast. I highly recommend FOCUS Real Estate.- Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Medfield, MA.
