We were fortunate to have someone highly recommend Melinda Sarkis to us while looking for an apartment in Boston and eventually to purchase a property. She quickly found many rental options that met our specific needs, even listings before they hit the market. Because of our positive experience with Melinda, we enlisted her services again when looking for a property to buy. We chose Melinda for her knowledge, passion, professionalism, street smarts and her attention to detail. We knew she was special but we were about to find out just how talented she really is. Melinda Worked with us on the purchase of a property under construction during the pandemic of a year and half, and was a tireless advocate for us. She helped us renegotiate the deal due to delays and changing market conditions. She was on weekly calls with us and the developer to keep the project moving forward and more importantly, to keep the deal together. She met us on-site every two weeks for the past year to review the progress. We have worked with several talented realtors in the past, and Melinda Sarkis is the best of the best. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a property in the city, you would be fortunate to have her on your side. We could not have been more pleased to have her as our realtor, and now our friend!
Matt was an incredible partner for us as my fiancé and I found and purchased our first home. We casually began home searching in October and met Matt at an open house. While that house wasn’t for us, he was incredibly personable and generous to us as we were just beginners in the home buying process. He asked us great questions, listened to our needs, and followed up just after meeting to check in and offer his assistance as we continued our search. A theme we noticed throughout our buying process with Matt was consistency. He was super responsive with our many questions, and he always followed through with our requests. When we did find the place we loved (and ended up purchasing!), Matt connected all the dots for us. He made fantastic recommendations on mortgage brokers and attorneys, and he guided us through the entire process, start to finish. We closed on our condo in January and after a month of being settled in, we couldn’t be happier with our choice. If you’re looking to buy a home and want a reliable, consistent guide through the process, work with Matt. Not only is he a professional and knowledgeable agent, he feels like a friend — he listens to and cares for your needs and ensures your happiness is put first. Thank you Matt for all of your help!
Melinda, thank you for your efforts in selling our condo. We appreciated that you stayed focused on its many positive attributes, with buyers as well as with us. Your diligent marketing efforts put us in a good position. We were especially impressed that you held an open house at an unconventional time – a weekday evening rather than the usual weekend time slots. In fact, that creative idea – and your success in negotiating an initially lower-than-acceptable offer into an acceptable one - led to the sale of our unit. It’s clear that you love what you do and are willing to work hard and enthusiastically on behalf of your clients. After nearly 30 years in our condo on Beacon Hill, we were ready to move on. Thanks to your efforts, we have been able to do so happily.
Matt was an amazing partner throughout our search, application, and move-in to our new place in Somerville. Moving to Boston from Chicago, my wife and I knew very little about Boston neighborhoods, culture or the housing market. Matt did everything and more to guide us through our search, including: sourcing and organizing listings; communicating with landlords and agents; driving us around to look at homes during our only weekend visit to the area; negotiating on our behalf; conducting virtual visits; routing finances, paperwork and applications; and picking up keys and paperwork for our move-in. He even met us at our fantastic new home on move-in day and welcomed us to Boston. Matt is very well-connected in the Boston real estate scene, knowledgeable about the area and culture, genuinely kind and helpful, and effective at matching individuals' needs to available real estate listings. We're thrilled with the result, and we're certain our move would not have been nearly as smooth or enjoyable without his help.
Melinda was fantastic to work with during the sale of our condo. From first meeting to post closing she has been very helpful, informative, professional and fun to work with. Her professional contacts and referrals were all top notch as well. The professional pictures were superb, contractor did great work and attorney referral was great. Moving during a pandemic, especially across the country seemed overwhelming to my wife and I but working with Melinda made everything stress free. During the pandemic Melinda did a great job with showing the condo and after getting multiple offers guided everything to a successful closing above asking price. Highly recommend.
Matt was amazing! He was so quick and responsive all through the process and was able to connect us with some really great partners throughout the process from inspection to closing to ensure we had a seamless process. From texts to late night phone calls, he was always available to answer any questions or ease concerns. I anticipated home buying to be much more stressful and he was able to lower a lot of that stress. We will definitely be using Matt again in the future!
