1) “Selling a high end home can be fraught with challenges, and we could not have asked for a better "guide for the journey" than Jeff.
Our home in Duxbury was very special - but with sweeping spaces and modern details, it was absolutely not typical for New England. Jeff brought a vision for how to appeal to the right buyer, backed up by painstaking execution of the details. His advice went beyond expert staging to include beautifully produced video vignettes designed to help the buyers to picture themselves coming home to their respite, sharing special moments with friends, enjoying family time on the private beach, etc.
On the buy side, we gave Jeff a steep challenge: find us a great home on Downer Ave in Hingham. He used his networks and charming demeanor to surface a spectacular home and helped us navigate a complicated contingent sale for a property that would typically be a cash sale.
We could not recommend Jeff and his team highly enough.”
