"We had a fantastic experience with Joanne Baron of The Shulkin Wilk Group. First, we began our working relationship from afar, as I had accepted a job that would require moving from CA to MA. Joanne was very responsive, and was able to help us focus on good areas even from across the country. She went to open houses on our behalf and brought us in via FaceTime so that we could experience those homes as much as possible from CA. Once we had relocated to temporary housing in Boston, Joanne quickly lined up 5 in-person tours on our first weekend in town. It was from that first weekend that we found our home, which is a testament to Joanne’s ability to process our wants and needs and focus our search on homes that delivered against those. I have no hesitation recommending Joanne to anyone buying or selling a home in the Boston suburbs. She is excellent!"

"We have worked with Joanne Baron from the Shulkin Group for both buying and selling houses in Wellesley, MA. We are very pleased with the way Joanne handled both transactions. She was very patient with the process as it’s not easy to buy and sell at the same time! We really appreciated her for her knowledge of the local market dynamics and no pressure approach. She was very professional and prompt in her response to any questions. Also, she listened to our needs and gave us good advice. We would strongly recommend her for your next home buying/selling needs!"

"Joanne was amazing to work with. She was diligent in her prospecting of new homes for us, responsive to our questions and availability, and she shared great advice throughout the entire buying process. We would recommend Joanne for anyone looking to buy a new home and/or sell their home. "

"Joanne is terrific - I called her and told her what we were looking for - Joanne immediately jumped into action - she contacted brokers in her network & she found us the perfect condo - and boom - she helped us submit an offer & we on our way!!"

"Joanne Baron negotiated and executed the sale of my condo in record time. Her expertise and knowledge in the area allowed her to locate potential buyers even before my condo went on the market. Her professionalism made it possible to experience a stress free closing of my home. I couldn’t have been happier with Joanne’s professionalism, enthusiasm and partnership! I highly recommend using her if thinking of selling or buying. "

"This review has been long overdue. Traci Shulkin, Christine Shechtman and Joanne Baron had helped us buy our home in 2018, and our experience with them was so positive then that we chose them again without hesitation when we unexpectedly decided to move in April 2020 from greater Boston to the Chicago suburbs. Our experience with the Shulkin group was even more positive this time around. We put our house on the market in late April of 2020 when the pandemic had already started in the US. Traci, Christine and Joanne’s advice on how to price our house and when to put the house on the market was absolutely spot on! When the house eventually went on the market they were extremely careful in organizing the showings. They would schedule prospective buyers for private showings only, being very careful to wipe clean any surface that those who came by the house touched. They themselves made sure to wear masks the whole time and carry hand-sanitizers to ensure safety. It was an amazing display of both professionalism and care. Our house sold within ten days of going on the market, and I suspect a lot of that had to do with the proactivity of our real estate agents, and our willingness to listen to their advice! Chris and Joanne, whom we have interacted with extensively and have come to know at a personal level, are also just simply good people. When we needed real estate agents in the greater Chicago area, Traci’s group connected us with an awesome group within Compass who helped us buy our next home! We would strongly recommend that if you are either buying or selling you should absolutely consider the Shulkin group. Not only is Traci extremely competent, proficient and connected, she has found excellent people to work in her group that made us feel like we were family! "

"Does it really matter who your agent is? Before working with Joanne Baron, I would have said probably not. I'm now convinced that it matters more than you possibly could imagine. I needed to move my family (with two small kids and a dog) for a work relocation from Rochester, NY to the Boston area -- amid a pandemic and a tremendous boom in metrowest suburban real estate. I was hearing from friends that houses were selling for tens of thousands above listing price and often without contingencies. Joanne had the near impossible task of finding a home for two very discerning adults (my husband is picky almost to an extreme) and doing it remotely. She listened actively to what we were looking for, scouted properties whenever we asked about one (and when we did not) and sent us videos of the neighborhoods. She arranged a series of FaceTime tours and after the second or third, my husband (who is NOT easy to please) remarked to me, "she's really showing us exactly what we described." When she became convinced she had found "the" house (which was responsive to all of our needs including that of my 4-year-old for a cul de sac where he could ride his bike), she contacted the listing agent incessantly until she was granted a showing before the house listed. She counseled us through putting in an offer that was immediately accepted, with the listing taken down. We were incredulous. I'll be very clear -- we would not have gotten this house but for Joanne's tenacity, determination, and commitment. With another agent, we would probably still be looking, slightly dispirited and downtrodden, months later. Joanne was our advocate in every sense. She is responsive and helpful, always providing timely information and helping us to navigate the obscure issues of the buying process. Everything -- EVERYTHING went smoothly, all thanks to her hard work. We are SO grateful we had the opportunity to work with her. Do yourself a favor and do the same -- you will be glad you did!

"Joanne was awesome start to finish. From getting us in to see the house the morning it listed to following through after closing, she was attentive, reliable, enthusiastic, and fun to work with at every step. The listing broker even commented to us at the inspection that it was 100% Joanne's skill that got our offer accepted. We love our new house and we loved working with Joanne!"

"My husband and I were represented by Joanne and Christine in the purchase of our recent home. They were both extremely personable and knowledgeable, and treated us as if we were their only clients (we knew this was a very busy time for them). Joanne was especially accommodating, and seamlessly coordinated with the previous homeowners so we could visit the home more than once, and she was happy to accompany us each time. We're so grateful to have worked with them, and would absolutely recommend to local buyers and sellers!""
