About David

I know that you are in the process of making one of the most important decisions - who to work with in selling, buying or investing in real estate. For many, it is one of their single largest assets so I take my job very seriously. For almost 20 years I have been a top producing agent delivering results. For the last 9 years I have been one of the principals of The Beacon Group which is an innovative, client focused real estate practice working in Boston and the suburbs. Our mission is to help people, like you, achieve their real estate dreams and goals. Big and small, we have sold it all, from "kiddie condos" to $6.5M properties. What makes us different from others is that we utilize honest, straight forward analytics to give our clients insight on value based on hard data, not supposition. This lets our clients make a fully informed decision that is right for them, advising them as if we were advising ourselves or a close family member. We also have a very experienced team that we work with which includes a real estate attorney, home inspector, estate planner and various trades people. For sellers, it's not just about the local/micro-market. It's understanding that most buyers are exploring multiple markets. It's so important that the agent they hire understands the nuances of a home sale, can design a custom marketing strategy thinking outside the box to maximize your net proceeds. Our team helps you properly assess your home's value, prepare and stage it for sale and negotiate the best price possible. If potential work is needed at the property, our advice is focused on things that will give a return on investment or eliminate potential inspection issues that could negatively impact you in the end. As a buyer, most people get caught up in price of a property. In reality, what you should be focused on is the monthly outlay for a given place. Taxes and other expenses can make a lesser priced property much more expensive than that higher priced property. You also need to realize that although you are a buyer today, you are a seller someday. People sell because of life, not the market. Our insight, knowledge and experience working in multiple communities will assist you in making the best decision possible. The data we provide will help you in knowing what to pay, and more importantly what not to pay, for a particular property. Yes, we will say "please don't buy this property" because this is the advice we would want to hear if we were in your shoes. Downsizing is what we call Rightsizing which we worked with numerous people and families with. We understand that this is a challenging and emotional process that can't be rushed. There are multiple things to consider and many times certain trusted family advisors that should be brought into the planning. There are also multiple moving parts which could include the sale of your current place to let you be able to move to your next one. We assist in the planning and execution from beginning to end. Ultimately, anyone can talk about themselves. If you are looking to sell, buy or invest I encourage you to reach out for references which are gladly furnished upon request. Who better to tell you about the level of knowledge, expertise and results we deliver than someone who has been in your shoes. I look forward to working with you!
