"Not for one minute did we feel like a number at the deli counter. Ellie and Liz made us feel like their only clients, their only concern. They are professional, responsive, kind, ethical, articulate, caring--the list of qualities goes on and on. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to any friends or family. "
— RG, Somerville


"Even in such a fast-paced, competitive market, we never felt pressured or rushed to make a decision we were not sure about. With the help of Liz and Ellie, every offer we constructed was very well informed, which attributed to the confidence my family and I felt in our decisions. Combined with their experience, knowledge, instinct, and teamwork, these characteristics make Liz and Ellie amazing real estate agents. "
— XG, Brookline


"They listened to me when I told them what I was willing to do to maximize value and gave me great advice/support to carry that out. They also referred me to great professionals who helped me get the place ready to list (painter, electrician, handyman, floor person, etc)...In the end, my home sold for $40k above asking and about $20k more than I had hoped to get for it. "
— JF, Medford


"Liz & Ellie helped us buy our dream home in Cambridge! They were absolutely fantastic to work with, were extremely knowledgeable about the Cambridge market as well as all the pitfalls to watch out for when navigating such a challenging housing market…And ultimately, they were instrumental in helping us put in a competitive bid and sort through all the paperwork and questions along the way. We can’t recommend them highly enough!! "
—TA & JO, Cambridge


"We needed to clean out and renovate a dated property to be put up for sale. Liz and Ellie from Compass project-managed the whole process. This was especially important as the owners were not local to the property. They were very responsive and proactively managed the process with the designer and contractors. "
—AG, Brookline


"Liz and Ellie helped us sell our house, and then found us a new place to live—one so suitable for us that we had no regrets about leaving our home of 35 years. Liz and Ellie are among the most outstanding professionals we have known. Smart, experienced, knowledgeable—in sum, excellent. They have recently helped us buy and sell additional property; at this point, they have worked with us on four different real estate transactions. We would never want to work with any other real estate agents. "
—AF and DL, Chelsea


"They were fantastic. They were very responsive. They were extremely kind and gentle in dealing with us. Our mother had died and we needed to sell the home that had been in my family for 80 years. I cannot rave about them enough. "
—BM & SM, Somerville


"Ellie and Liz, who work as a team, were great to work with. As a first-time seller they helped me understand the process from beginning to end, worked with me on a selling timeframe that made sense for my relocation, referred me to folks who could help get my apartment in selling condition, advised me on my choices when bids came in, and more. I really appreciated their excellent and quick communication, and their upbeat professionalism. Their calm competence made a stressful process go as smoothly as possible. "
—CH, Boston


"An overall excellent experience. Liz and Ellie work as a team and complement one another really well. They went over and above doing all the prep work locally to sell our condo while we were miles away. They kept things in perspective for us as we had never sold a house before. They are seasoned professionals who know the market well and stay on top of trends. They are tapped into a great network of other professionals such as real estate lawyers. "
—BB, Somerville


"Working with Ellie and Liz was amazing. They are professional and organized. There were no issues. Not only did the sales go smoothly - both the sale and purchase - but any services that I required, they were able to recommend excellent people to work with. I would absolutely work with them again! "
—KC, Somerville


"Other agents scare ("The market is crazy!!") - Liz and Ellie inform. Not only will you make the right decision, you will understand why. My partner and I have since worked with both Liz and Ellie on two different searches. The first time, we took the first place we saw. The second time, we went through a string of disappointing showings before finding the perfect fit. Both times, Liz and Ellie were with us every step of the way, steadying us when we were hasty, encouraging us to move fast once we found our match. "
—MW, Somerville


"In a very busy house market, timing was crucial and Ellie and Liz didn't want us to miss our chance buying a home because we were too late to see it. Once we found houses we wanted to tour, Ellie and Liz set up a schedule so we could see multiple houses on the same day. While touring houses, Ellie and Liz provided a nice balance of "hands on" as well as "tour at your own pace."...To give you an idea of how quickly the market moves and how Ellie and Liz are able to keep up with it... we toured a home at noon, made an offer the same day, and came to an agreement with the seller also the same day. Liz and Ellie orchestrated the entire thing. "
—AC, Roslindale
