BJ Ray is a true professional in every sense of the word. When working with BJ you can expect access to the most cutting edge analysis of sales data in the marketplace. If he's assisting you to buy, you can rest assured you will not overpay or if selling, he'll obtain top dollar for you without question. BJ recently helped my wife and I purchase a 3 family in Somerville. At the time we contemplated the investment but fortunately he educated us enough to push forward. Since that time the [...]
We recently worked with BJ to purchase what turned out to be our dream home in Jamaica Plain, and we could not have had a better experience. When we first met BJ, we told him upfront that after a few failed offer attempts in this crazy real estate market, we were becoming the super anxious homebuyer types. BJ was incredibly patient with us, calming steering us through every step of the process. He is the consummate professional - knowledgeable, responsive, insightful- while also being very [...]
BJ helped us buy our first home. His knowledge, experience, and instincts made the process much less stressful. He was a great guide and advisor and we'd work with him again if we're looking to sell/buy.
BJ Ray has been my realtor since the RE crash of 2008. My condo projected had dropped significantly in value and he helped me sell it on my own because of the loss I was destined to have. But I learned from his instruction how valuable a good realtor is. A good realtor brings technical expertise, marketing skills, presentation skills, and his very own positive attitude to the sale. I’ve haven’t found a realtor with better skills. He’s always kept ahead of anyone else in using social [...]
BJ was a major asset during our search. He took the time to meet us every week or recapped after open houses if he was showing his own. He gave us amazing feedback and never pressured us to buy anything.
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--
BJ & team delivered unparalleled customer service during our condo sale. He took care of literally every step of the process before we could even think to ask, was always available, never brushed off my concerns and made us feel like we were in the best possible hands. Thank you!!
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!
It was a pleasure working with BJ to purchase our first home. He provided lots of information about neighborhoods and helped us learn what to look for in a house. He got back to us quickly and helped us through a stressful negotiation process. I would not hesitate to recommend him to other home buyers.
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.
