"Sam is a delight. We wanted our dream home before the baby was born and we got it with time to spare. She is responsive, very knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the entire house search/buying process. She is respectful of time and incredibly efficient. We will miss seeing her weekly!" - Becca & Zach, Wayland Buyers.
"There is no other choice really -- we were so extremely thrilled. Samantha Eisenberg is a super star!! No one will fight harder for you than Sam. She took the task of selling our house in a tough market AND helping find the perfect new home for our family and hit both out of the park. There is no need to search further. We are incredibly picky and we would choose Sam Eisenberg over and over again.." - Jamie and Shoel, Sudbury Sellers, Needham Buyers
"Samantha is absolutely fantastic—she went above and beyond time and time again not only during our search for a house but during the negotiating and buying process. She is responsive beyond expectations, proactive, and won’t shy away from giving her honest opinion, even if it isn’t what you want to hear. She truly is invested in her clients’ searches and happiness and spends the time to understand the nuances of what each one wants. We have already recommended Samantha Eisenberg to multiple friends and wouldn’t hesitate to refer her to others!" - Marla and Jamie, Newton Buyer
"Sam is an incredible broker! She helped us in buying our first house. What I particularly loved about working with Sam is that she spent the time upfront to really get to know our style and what we were looking for so that she could go look at houses before we saw them to decide if it was worth our time. In addition, she definitely had our best interest at heart in terms of price and didn't hesitate to raise concerns about us potentially overpaying. She worked tirelessly to find the right house for us and then negotiated the deal flawlessly. We are thrilled in our new home... thanks to Sam." - Mollie and Sawyer, Newton Buyers.
"From start to finish, Sam was a professional in every sense of the word. Her knowledge base about our market was vast and extremely helpful in terms of getting our footing in an otherwise overwhelming process. Sam was a source of constant support and guidance, and her communication and negotiation skills are second to none. She went well above the call of duty in every sense when it came to helping us sell our previous home and find our perfect new one. No ask was too big or call too late- we always had the utmost trust in her which is imperative in a broker. Thank you, Sam, for your expertise, your honesty, and your work ethic- we couldn't be happier! " - Lauren and Brad, Newton Sellers and Wellesley Buyers
"I cannot say enough about how wonderful Samantha Eisenberg was to work
with on the purchase of our new home. We were moving from Boston and relied
on Samantha heavily for knowledge of neighborhood and process in this tough
market. She always made herself available to us and always thoughtfully
addressed our questions or concerns as they arose. When it came to buying,
I was very impressed with her negotiation, and patience throughout. We were
surprised by how seamless the entire process was, and we attribute that all
to Sam!" - Jessica and Mike, Needham Buyers
"Unforeseen family circumstances forced us to plan a relocation from New York City in the winter of 2019, little did we know that we would need a real estate professional, professional network, chauffeur, therapist and friend to help us navigate our life transition.
Sam tirelessly sifted opportunities, comparables and entertained our endless waffling with a smile and remarkable empathy. Sam was a different type of thought partner to my wife, my mother-in-law and me, offering each of us what was needed to make sense of our choices. The preceding sentence does little justice to the breadth of emotional intelligence, intellectual capabilities and comic relief necessary to manage our motley crew.
In order to ensure that this note doesn’t present as a normal recommendation, I would highlight that there was nothing normal about our home purchase process. After viewing more than 50 homes in Boston area, we had a verbally committed offer the week of March 16, 2019 just as the S&P 500 entered a 30% freefall as initial Covid-19 quarantines went in place. Sam guided us through a home inspection, structural inspection (by our demand) and then a negotiated ‘pause’ as we tried to make sense of a scary and unclear global pandemic.
For the next three months, despite managing her own life complexities, Sam proactively kept us informed of market dynamics and macro data on the housing market. When our home came back on the market, Sam did not allow us to fall victim to our own avoidant behavior and kept us in the game. Without Sam we would have lost the house and not been able to write this letter from the sun-drenched warmth of our new home. We were not easy clients and our situation was not simple. Like everyone we brought equal parts emotion and fear. Sam was a most appreciated guide.
We write this as property owners in Brooklyn, NY and investment professionals. Our assessment of Sam is not just based on a single experience, but rather a much broader set of experiences. Sam is a star, generous of spirit and knowledge, who we would emphatically recommend to anyone trying to make sense of a home purchase or sale.
" - Jenny and Danny, Newton Buyers
"We were lucky to work with Samantha on both the sale of our condo in Brookline and the purchase of our new home in Needham. We started our search for a home over a year ago and Samatha was incredibly patient and understanding as we kept going back and forth on our decision to even move.
When the Covid pandemic hit, it was the right time for us to have more space and an at home office for our growing family. Not only did Samantha help us find our dream home, but she also was able to stage and list our condo and get it under contract (with a very generous offer) in just a few days (before there was even an open house). We were reassured by Samantha's responsiveness and confidence during a time that is stressful to many people (ourselves included).
Samantha is also a wonderful negotiator who was able to be creative and secure a deal that all parties were comfortable with and was transparent throughout the entire process. She understood both the sale of a condo closer to the city and the purchase of a home in the burbs (two very different markets) and was always just a quick text or phone call away.
While we hope not to move anytime again soon (as we love our new home), if and when we do, Samantha will be our first call. Not to mention, she will continue to hear from us as she has a great eye for design and we will definitely be consulting her as we renovate and decorate!" - Lisa and Josh, Brookline Sellers, Needham Buyers
"We couldn’t be happier with our choice to use Sam as both our selling and buying broker - working with her was an absolute pleasure! As first time sellers and 2nd-time buyers, we needed someone who could quickly grasp our needs on both sides and match that with current market conditions. Sam was exactly that person - and so much more! She was fantastic about explaining what we now know is an extremely complicated process. She’s a natural marketer. From our first meeting, she was thinking about ways to stage our home perfectly to get maximum foot traffic at open houses. She’s extremely detail-oriented, transparent, hands-on, and an unmatched multi-tasker. She helped stage our home cost-effectively, kept us on track with reminders about what needed to be done in lead up to the sale. She was available day or night to answer questions or to offer support and provided the perfect level of communication through negotiations. Most importantly, she has unbelievable market knowledge. Her recommended pricing for our property was spot on, which led to a quick sale. If you are looking for a broker who will provide superior service, has the deep necessary market knowledge, and is there for you at every step of the way, then look no further than Sam!" -Kim and Andrew, Lexington Sellers, Needham Buyers
"We are so lucky to have worked with Samantha in our search for our first home. With her intimate understanding of the markets and neighborhoods we were looking at, she made a very daunting process manageable. She took the time to understand our precise needs and even knew where we wanted to live before we did! She’s also an excellent negotiator who knows how to get an edge for her clients in extremely competitive markets. She exceeds every expectation and we recommend her to everyone!" - Melanie and Stephen, Needham Buyers
"Our experience with Samantha was stellar. My husband and I were looking for a “fixer upper” and even before meeting with her for the first time to look at a property, she went to Newton’s town office to investigate how much expansion was allowed by the city. She really took the time to get to know us and to help us find the home that would be a good fit for us, not just send us a list and leave it at that. Being very knowledgeable regarding all the available listings in the area we were looking, she would point out all the properties hitting the market that would fit with us and were within our budget. Ultimately she helped us find our home. She discussed with us pros and cons of each property from an unbiased angle and would point out how it would or would not fit our needs. Sam is the kind of person who is genuinely interested in finding the best fit for her clients and not just trying to cycle through to the next deal. Being familiar with the town, she was able to give us insight regarding schools, playgrounds, and specific areas. She truly went above and beyond. Not only is she magnificent and gets the job done efficiently and effectively, but she is warm, personable and a pleasure to work with. She was very flexible and able to accommodate to both our busy schedules. On the closing day for the home she helped us find, she even gave us a to do list with contacts for electricity, gas, sewer, ect, and references for movers and interior designers. Two months after our closing she’ll check on us from time to time to see how our project is progressing. In short, we would recommend Sam wholeheartedly to anyone who is looking for a home" - Monique & John, Newton Buyers
"We greatly enjoyed working with Samantha to sell our Needham home! Samantha was passionate and extremely motivated to sell our home. Her determination and attention to detail were key factors in being able to accept an offer before our first open house. She went above and beyond by offering staging advice and bringing in some of her items at no cost, making our house magazine photo shoot ready! The sale process exceeded the expectation of our timeline, with Samantha handling all the small details. We recommend working with Samantha when selling your home!” - Jenna & John, Needham Sellers
