"Both Jared and Traci helped my family find the first home in the area. They are the dream team to work with, with impressive local knowledge, attention to details, quick response, and great negotiation skills. You can hardly get it wrong by working with two great realtors in this region."- Bo Q.

"In the swarming sea of realtors… boy were we lucky to meet Traci Schulman Shulkin. She’s the unicorn of unicorn realtors. There’s a lot of good realtors out there. But finding one with a combination of deep knowledge, patience (wow did we test it!), persistence and tough negotiation skills, in a way that you are confident that your investment was very well spent, and that you’ll enjoy the process along the way (especially in this market) … that is not easy. Traci is an absolute joy of a person, and (if it’s even possible) an equally good realtor. She’s one of the top producers in metro west for high end real estate (ie $2M+) specializing in Weston and Wellesley in particular. If you’re in the market, call her before picking someone, and I’m sure you’ll quickly see why all her clients love her."- Kristin H.

"Traci is the absolute best realtor out there. She helped us buy our home in the suburbs and then sell it when we moved out-of-state. She is extremely professional while also being very friendly and approachable. She always answered our questions right away and we felt like she got us great deals on our homes. She has a wealth of experience so we felt like we were in the best hands possible each time. We couldn’t love Traci more! "

★★★★★
"We engaged Jared and Traci when our previous broker was not successful selling our Weston home. Even though we set an aggressive price, not once did either of them try to convince us to lower it. They worked tirelessly and had countless showings. At all times both agents, and their fabulous assistant Christine were consummate professionals and very communicative throughout the entire process. Feedback was provided in a timely manner. When there was a glitch in the fire inspection, they went above and beyond in calling the Fire Chief, finding us a professional who could install a hard-wired system in less than one week, and solving a complex problem. They never made me feel like I was a bother even with multiple phone calls and texts. During the process of multiple offers, we felt they always had our back but were highly skilled in negotiations and strategies in handling them. They know everyone and have excellent relationships in the filed. On the buying side, they were quick on their feet to help us secure the next property, even touring a property on our behalf and face timing us when we were out of town. In short, this team is the best I have ever worked with and I would highly recommend them. In fact, I wouldn’t use anyone else."- Carole D.

"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! "

"Thank you to the most hardworking broker anywhere. The fact that you took us through the entire process – 1st tour/site control through construction and closing was incredible. It’s what sets you apart and why everyone loves working with you. You are truly the best."- Elizabeth and Mike F.

★★★★★
"Traci was great to work within a competitive buying environment. She was supremely patient, working with us house after house to help us zero in on our main home-buying criteria. She was also very responsive, speaking to us whenever we called and showing up to every last open house. Last, Traci helped to create a quick and productive working relationship with the other broker so that a fair deal could get done quickly. We would definitely recommend working with her! "-M. Ross

★★★★★
"Traci was a pleasure to work with and really helped us with our move. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient, which was important to us since we were relocating. We worked with Traci for about 6 months before we found the perfect home. I would recommend Traci to everyone."- K.G.

★★★★★
"Traci Shulkin worked with us for almost two years to find the perfect home. She had a tremendous amount of patience and motivation as we looked at more than 50 homes/sites together prior to finding our home. Traci is well-connected in the Newton/Weston/Wellesley/Natick area, knows the market well, and often knows of properties coming on the market well before it’s made public. This was helpful to us in such a competitive market. Additionally, even after the sale was made, Traci stuck with us as our home was completed, and worked alongside us to make sure what was promised was, indeed, delivered. We appreciate all of Traci’s energy and efforts, and we highly recommend her to anyone that will listen!! "- K. Awinograd

"Traci helped us buy our first home and the process was much easier than I ever expected it to be. We were living out of the state during our search and only had a few weekends to see as many houses as possible. Traci was organized, brought us to houses that she knew we would like and was thoughtful of our price range. Traci is very knowledgeable and well connected. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. "- Meg K.

★★★★★
"I loved working with Traci. She is a consummate professional! She exhibits great attention to detail, works incredibly hard and is extremely responsive. She understood our needs completely. I highly recommend Traci to anyone wishing to purchase or sell a home."

★★★★★
"Traci was terrific. Professional, efficient, skillful, warm, and effective. Great experience. We fielded several offers and had some “challenging” potential buyers, but we ended up with the perfect match for our home. Overall we enjoyed the experience, all because of Traci."- George D.

★★★★★
"We couldn’t have asked for a better experience working with Traci Shulkin! She was highly knowledgeable about the metro-west real estate market, the ins-and-outs of buying and selling homes, and was incredibly flexible and patient with us when scheduling viewings. Traci was fantastic at giving detailed feedback, helping set realistic expectations throughout the process, and basically guiding us through every step of the way. Traci was professional and responded quickly whether by email, call, or text. And, she was available when needed. We are tremendously grateful for her guidance! Bottom line – We couldn’t imagine having a more positive experience, and recommend Traci Shulkin without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Metro-West area."

"You would be incredibly fortunate to work with Traci Shulkin and her team. Her knowledge, her patience, dedication, responsiveness, and her reputation and relationships make your experience buying a home the best one it could possibly be. We were relocating and wanted to find a home quickly but did not know the area. We started with a few towns and by seeing so many properties with her almost daily, we got to know what we truly wanted and needed. She taught us so much about things we would have never known to consider in a property and though we came close on a few properties, she helped us realize they were not the right ones for us. There was never any pressure or any impatience with our decision process. You can feel her genuine concern for you as her client - she truly wants you to find something you love and will be happy with. She was always available on the phone, email or text to answer questions, to talk through things, and to be a sounding board. She helped us find our dream home in only six weeks in an incredibly limited market and her relationships and reputation played a key role in us successfully navigating the competitive bidding process. Buying a home is both a financial and emotional decision. Traci excels in helping you navigate both of those aspects equally well. We could not be more grateful for her efforts to help us start this new chapter." - Alisa & Vic


About Traci
Switching her career from accounting to real estate was an easy decision for Traci Shulkin. As a CPA who held positions at Goldman Sachs and Fidelity Investments, Traci soon realized she was more interested in design and construction than in debits and credits. She desired a career she could be passionate about and wanted to work directly with clients instead of being behind a desk.

As she began her real estate career, Traci made it her goal to be available 24/7 to her clients to help them navigate and simplify the complex buying and selling process. She has made it her objective to be her client’s “forever” Realtor, helping them through the different stages of life, from the starter house to the bump up and then when they are ready to downsize. She loves working with a wide variety of buyers and sellers, whether it is a first-time homebuyer or a new construction builder, and everything in between.

Traci’s strong reputation in the real estate community has helped her gain access and knowledge of off market listings and she makes it a priority to learn about listings before they hit the market. Providing added value to her clients is an integral part of Traci’s business plan. Traci is most proud of how a majority of her business is based on referrals from existing and past clients.

Traci created the “Live in” Brand 10 years ago, but has more recently begun to expand the brand. The “Live in” Brand’s underlying goal is to help people understand the different towns in the MetroWest, giving them a feel for what it is like to live in these towns. She uses her blog as a way of getting relevant and useful information out to her audience. She also communicates with the community via her Instagram account and Facebook pages.

Traci specializes in the Weston, Wellesley, Wayland, Needham, Newton and Natick markets. She was named the #1 Sales Agent at her previous real estate company 5 of the last 7 years. Traci was featured on the cover of the “Who’s Who in Real Estate” Boston Agent Magazine issue in 2019. She was also highlighted in Boston Common’s “Dynamic Women of Boston” issue and has had editorial articles in the Huffington Post, Boston Common and Realtor.com.

Traci comes from an analytical background, so when it came time to expand, she put an extraordinary amount of thought into how to do it in a strategic, smart manner. When she started exploring partnering with another broker, there was only one agent she wanted to work with. Jared and Traci were always the agents working late at the office and she realized they both possessed many of the same values when it came to work and life. It soon became a no brainer that The Traci Shulkin Group and The Jared Wilk Group should merge to form The Shulkin | Wilk Group.

You will see Traci pounding the pavement and working at all hours of the day, but when she has some free time you will find her on the beach or on the ski slopes. A fan of Boston sports, Traci loves attending games with her family. When she is not working, however, her favorite place to be is on the sidelines, cheering on her three children in a variety of sports.
