' I cannot express how fantastic it was to work with Bj and Meredith. They are such a great team. Professional, knowledgeable, quick to respond, and experts at this whole real estate process. They made the whole experience so easy and straightforward. This is my second time using their services once as a buyer and then as a seller. They are so thorough and knowledgable on both sides. I recommend them to all my family and friends and anyone looking to buy or sell. Its such a great feeling to [...]
Meredith was an absolute rock star from start to finish. She and BJ do a great job of being 'real people' and experts in real estate transactions at the same time. They're super responsive, data-driven, and great advisers. My wife and I couldn't have done this without them. They really listened to us...after the purchase was complete, Meredith remembered me mentioning my favorite wine region -- very classy gesture! Highly, highly recommended.
BJ and Meredith were both amazing throughout the entire process! Never felt pressured into anything that wasn't absolutely perfect for us, great advice about every property we saw, and everything was handled quickly and painlessly. We not recommend them highly enough.
We could not have been happier with BJ and Meredith and the house selling process. From start to finish, they masterfully engineered a phenomenal deal for us and effortlessly brought the deal to a close. They were always 'on it', kept us informed, and had a stress-free game plan that worked perfectly. They are the best in the business - I couldn't imagine having a better outcome with anyone else!

BJ and Meredith helped my husband and I sell our condo and we couldn't have had a better experience and better team. We originally tried to sell our condo ourselves, but after two deals fell through, we thankfully found BJ and Meredith. I will never ever not use a realtor again, and in particular, BJ and Meredith. They were well-informed, responsive, and they made an overwhelming process easy. They were patient and just overall fantastic, I highly recommend both of them.
We had an excellent experience with the Boston Home Team. They were patient (it took us awhile to decide to sell) and respectful of our process and love of our home. They understood our priorities for selling in terms of timing and pricing and offered honest feedback along the way. Considering the market, the process itself was as stress-free as it could have been and their calm guidance helped to make it so. Would definitely recommend.
Meredith was wonderful to work with. She made us feel very comfortable in buying our first home. She is super knowledgeable, highly detailed, and has a great eye for design. She helped us to really think through each property and the potential within to help find us the perfect home. I would highly recommend working with Meredith.
I have lived in Jamaica Plain for 12 years and wanted to buy a home in the area. BJ was very patient with me to really find the right fit! He knows Boston and in particular Jamaica Plain VERY well. He was right on around pricing, supportive in the purchase process, and overall very professional. I would highly recommend him--
Working with BJ was a real pleasure. My wife and I were impressed with his commitment to the craft of home buying. His natural talent for number crunching and negotiation comes across clearly and makes something so daunting seem easy, like a favorite hobby. We were very satisfied with his level of expertise with the market, and the end result of the process was owning a great home at a fair price. You can't ask for much more than that.
