"Shal is incredibly thorough and professional. She did a fantastic job positioning our home so that it sold significantly above asking price and our expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling in the Newton area. Of the numerous agents we’ve encountered she’s head and shoulders above the rest!" - Suzanne
"Shal helped us to find the home we really love. She showed abundant knowledge in the field and sharp negotiation skills. She is trustworthy and professional. Highly recommend!" - Noah
"Trustworthy and helpful! Shal advised us through the process of finding the exact right property for us in the right location. She objectively pointed out strengths and weaknesses of the properties based on her knowledge of the abundance of properties she had seen over time working in the area, but never pressured us. When we found the right place, she went over all our options for putting in an offer, setting a ceiling, and negotiated successfully (in the complex sellers market)!
A few years ago, I used a different realtor that gave a partial commission refund when I purchased my first home. I have to say, you get what you pay for. I was dissatisfied with that realtors' negotiating, and ultimately with the home we settled on. With Shal, I'm was happy throughout the process and the home is exactly what we want. We are thrilled! "
"We hired Shal on a friend’s recommendation to sell our upscale condo in Newton, MA . Ten days after it had been put on the market we sold it for full price.
We only can recommend Shal and her team :
She came very well prepared with statistics , knowledge of neighborhood and market analysis. She worked in a team : her colleagues, her stager, and her photographer and was absolutely willing to listen to their advice as well as recognizing our situation ( young dog, active living while staging etc).
The whole process of deciding on a price, preparing for sale , showing and then selling and closing was extremely well organized and went through without a hitch by an always friendly grounded Shal.
With her international background , sharp mind and common sense Shal was the best realtor we ever had in our numerous across Atlantic and coast to coast moves in our life.
If we ever move back into the Boston area she will be our first choice of realtor."
"Excellent service. After interviewing various agents, we hired Shalini as our home-buyer agent. She was very through and responsive. She took time to understand our needs and expectations. Her search was guided based on our unique needs. She was very knowledgeable and identified issues with houses that were overlooked by us. Her team aggressively advocated on our behalf and helped us get a good deal on the house. Throughout the closing process (and even afterwards), she guided us on the steps and connected us with various services as needed. We were very fortunate to have her as our real-estate agent. We recommend her team very highly! "
"Shal is a true professional. She guided and managed the process of selling our home and communicated with us at crucial stages keeping it seamless. "
"Shal was incredible. I had no real sense of the range and breadth of what a broker gets involved with--and towards the end there was a myriad of problems. Shal ALWAYS accepted everything as simply to be solved. "
"Shal was amazing from the start. She worked with us while we were still in California being very generous with explanations on how the MA market worked and what would be a good investment for us. She guided us through the whole process finding the perfect house for our family. "
"Shal was excellent to work with. She handled everything for us smoothly and gave us expert guidance us on the difficult process of buying and selling a home in a hot market. We'd definitely work with her again, and would recommend her to anyone."
