We represent buyers in the purchase of single family homes & condominiums.
Step 1: Choose a real estate agent
The first step of the process would be to choose a real estate agent. Buyer agents are an important partner to guide you throughout the process and can provide you with helpful information and resources for one of the largest and most exciting purchases of your life. Their knowledge of the nuances of a transaction, negotiating skills, and familiarity with the neighborhoods you want to live in can be extremely valuable. Best of all, it doesn't cost the buyer anything to use an agent– they’re compensated directly from the seller of the home they are buying. Browse our buyer agents here
Step 2: Determine how much you can spend on a home
If you aren't paying cash for your home, your agent can help to get you in contact with a bank who can pre-approve you for a mortgage. Once that amount is determined, you and your agent can discuss & establish the neighborhood, type of a house and any other preferences on your wish list.
Step 3: Start your Search
Let the shopping begin! Your agent will hand-select homes that fit your criteria and collaborate with you as you attend both open houses and private showings.
Step 4: Make an Offer
Once you find a home you love, it's time to make an offer. At this juncture it is vital to have representation from a buyers agent to be able to generate the offer that gets presented to the seller. Your buyers agent will negotiate with the sellers agent in order to get you the best possible deal. Once an offer is accepted, there will be a due diligence period where the buyer can inspect the home and work with the bank to complete the mortgage process. You will have professionals every step of the way to guide you.
Step 5: Closing Time
Once all contingencies are fulfilled it's closing time - The team behind the buyer will finalize every last detail & hand you the keys to your new home!

35 Royce Road Newton, MA | $2,520,000
"Erin is the quintessential professional, exemplifying what it means to add value to your buying or selling process. I reached out to Erin to help my wife and I find a home in the Boston area we were truly fortunate to find Erin. She goes well beyond the obvious of knowing the various towns/neighborhoods and simply waiting for you to tell her what you want to see. She understood our needs, guided our search, and consistently made very helpful recommendations. Through her robust network she is able to get a look on properties before they are even listed on the market - this is HUGE. Erin is sharp, incredibly organized, social, and is able to connect with both buyers and sellers to optimize everyone's experience. She is a staple of the community and delivers true value in an age where many real estate agents simply feel entitled to collect fees. We can't recommend Erin highly enough- she is a star." - Vlad B.
22 Chestnut, Charlestown, Boston, MA | $1,100,000
"In addition to listing and selling my last home in the Folio building downtown Boston I hired Matt back to help me purchase a new home - this time with more cash due to the outstanding cash offer he was able to negotiate for me on my sale. My fiance and I wanted a larger home with outdoor space in Boston and we knew that Matt was the only guy we wanted to use. He makes it so easy because he lives RIGHT downtown and can run to any open house/soft listing/or newly listed home in the area. As a result he was able see a listing on our behalf before anyone else was able to get into the unit. This gave us the opportunity to get our offer first in line and ACCEPTED on a newly renovated brownstone in Charlestown before the place ever had its first open house! Could not be happier with his work!" - Nick C.

"I recently purchased my first condo in Boston and had the pleasure of working with Erin. Erin guided me through each step of the process while paying attention to detail and going above and beyond my expectations. This was extremely helpful for me to understand every step and kept me from feeling overwhelmed by the multiple different choices, selections, and requirements. Additionally, my closing was fast, and easy without any hassle. Erin went above and beyond from what I would have expected from her - She was always professional, available for any questions, and quick in responding with the information I needed." - Philip N.
