This was my first time renting, I had tried another real estate agent who wasn't nearly as proactive and thorough as Oliver!
Not did he find the perfect apartment my situation, he also showed me several diverse options to help me better understand what my options were. He was also extremely patient with my girlfriend and I, as we had some issues come that slowed the process down. I couldn't be more confident or excited going into this living situation thanks to Oliver!

I could not imagine going through the rental process without Oliver's help. He is extremely knowledgable about Boston's full service apartments and was able to provide insight on an unprecedented level on each of them, eventually helping me find one that was perfect from a pricing, location and amenities perspective.
He knows the property managers very well at most of these apartments, on a professional and personal level, so that helped when it came time to negotiate move in date, lease length, pricing, etc.
Oliver was never pushy or salesy during the process, which is important to me because I wanted to really peruse my options, without pressure. He was patient, really making sure to listen to what I wanted, and was never frustrated with my many questions throughout the process. He was great with following up as well, always coming back with new options and sending weekly update texts regarding the new availabilities.
I feel extremely lucky to have found someone like Oliver to help me though the process. It was truly seamless and worry free. Honest, helpful, knowledgable, professional and kind. Real estate professionals like him are hard to come by!

I contacted Oliver when I was relocating to Boston from NYC. Having very little knowledge of the Boston housing market and needing a very quick turnaround time to find a new home I needed a realtor who was reliable, transparent, dedicated and savvy. Oliver over delivered on that list of qualities and was not able to find me my dream apartment within a week but handled all the challenges, twists and turns an out of state relocation can bring with professionalism and a smile.
Rarely do you come across someone who is talented at recognizing client needs and the realities of a housing market while working tirelessly to ensure a painless moving experience. I can't recommend Oliver enough!

"Helped me a Apartment home in Kenmore, Boston, MA.
I very strongly recommend Oliver! He showed places in very different neighborhoods in Boston and I was blown away by how much he knew about everywhere we went!
He was extremely thorough, and my favorite was that he showed my girlfriend and I three places that were exactly what we described to him and then a few that were very different than that just to show us what our money would get us in different places and styles of apartments.

"I had a "full circle" experience with Oliver; as he helped us rent an apartment, buy a and then sell that . His professionalism/knowledge is outmatched by his kind and caring nature. From meeting with him to determine our renting and buying needs, finding the right places to see and to getting our property sold in an efficient time frame, Oliver was always available a , email or quick text. I'll have no hesitations when recommending him to any and all that are looking their home!

"Oliver has been my go-to agent and real estate guru many years - first to find my first apartment in Boston, my boyfriend’s first apartment, and now our first home. He is not incredibly knowledgeable about the greater Boston real estate market, but also deeply
passionate about understanding how it looks each of his clients, and that shows through
every interaction we had with him. He listened to our wishes and wants our first home,
and helped us find the perfect fit in a neighborhood we didn’t originally consider. When the
sellers made the first time home buying experience stressful us, he provided daily
updates and coordinated all the moving pieces. His commitment to his clients is consistently
loyal and honest, and that is difficult to come by in this industry. I have been working with
Oliver many years and would continue to do so any future real estate needs. I would
highly recommend Oliver.

"Excellent experience working with Oliver Koester. His expertise, professionalism, and diligence made finding, evaluating, and buying a home as seamless as it could be. From the beginning, Oliver offered a wealth of knowledge of the real estate market in the Greater Boston Area. As Oliver was very attentive to my requirements, we were very efficient in the entire process (and I was a first time buyer). I am now happily living in my place and loving it thanks to him. It's a no brainer that I'll be returning to him any Boston area real
estate needs and highly recommend working with him.

"Oliver is a fantastic realtor to work with. Not does he know the industry very well but he also really listens and looks what is best you the customer. Before I met Oliver I had fired 2 other realtors who spent most of their time sending me files and files of potential homes for sale without pre-screening to see if they fit my needs. I always felt pressure from them to look at houses that I didn't really like and they made me feel guilty if I didn't like what I saw. With Oliver you won't feel that way. He spends a lot of time trying to understand what you are looking for and sends files that he thinks you will like. Within a few weeks of working with Oliver I found the I really wanted. In addition, after the closing, Oliver was super helpful finding me people to help with repairs, moving in etc. Unlike other realtors, Oliver sees this relationship as a long-term investment. When I look to upgrade I will work with him again. Work with Oliver, you won't be disappointed.

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Oliver to secure a tenant on short notice. His knowledge of the Boston market is very strong. What really sets him apart is his passion service. His interaction with me as a landlord, prospective tenants, and other service providers is unmatched in my 25 years of rental experience. I would highly recommend Oliver and will seek his services future transactions.
