Corey was instrumental in the purchase of my home. As a first time home buyer buying from an unrepresented seller, I would not have been able to organize or keep things moving on the timetable that the Boston market demands. Inside of that timetable, Corey was able to explain to me all the next steps as I need to do them and was able to make room and time for me if there was something a complication. Corey was able to leverage his network, get in front of potential issues and established a relationship with the seller that made everything simple for me. I knew that if an issue popped up it would be handled in a thought out, empathetic manner that would promote the continuation of the deal and reflect well on me. Corey did such a good job in navigating the deal that the seller actually said that if they were to consider using an agent in the future, it would be Corey. Without Corey, I couldn't have been able to take advantage of the opportunity to purchase a piece of Somerville history right in one of the most popular squares. I look forward to doing more business with him.
Not only were we first time home buyers, but we were buying a home in Boston while living in California. Corey went above and beyond for us, and was always available to answer our questions (even at late hours of the night, thanks to the 3 hour time difference). He took incredibly detailed videos of many homes for us so we could have an accurate idea of the home remotely, which gave us so much peace of mind. I have heard from so many people how stressful buying a home can be, but thanks to Corey, that was not our experience at all. I would absolutely recommend Corey to anyone looking to purchase a home!
He helped my wife and me buy our first home and was with us every step of the way. We were looking for something that was highly competitive--an affordable single-family home that was close to a T station--and took over 6 months to find. We went to dozens of open houses with Corey, put in about 8 offers on various places, and finally got our house after a complex and 'surprise-ridden' closing process. Without Corey's expertise and diligence, we might not have actually been able to close on our new home. In addition to Corey's support and guidance throughout the buying process, Corey supported us after our closing too. He helped us set up our accounts with the utility company, gave us information about the trash and recycling, and helped us connect with the town about replacing a lead water pipe in the house. Not only is Corey a great realtor, he's a great human. If you're buying in the Boston area you're going to spend a lot of time with you realtor. It goes a long way to have someone you genuinely enjoy spending time with during the process.
My wife and I were first time home buyers with a million questions and little knowledge of what it took to buy a home. Corey sat down with us and walked us through the entire process, and made everything easy to digest and understand. He walked us through everything to look out for in properties during open houses, had great knowledge of the local neighborhoods and the market, and was very honest with us throughout. When we eventually found our dream home, he was a great partner in helping us get a winning offer in, and worked with us to navigate through the complexities caused by COVID-19. He went above and beyond in helping us plan out all of the things we’d need to set up our new home, all the way down to comparing local chimney sweeps and other vendors for us to work with. In all, we were SO happy to work with Corey and would highly recommend him to help you through this crazy process!
After my coworker recommended him to me, he scheduled a Zoom consultation with us in early April (due to Covid-19) where he walked us through the home-buying process. He answered all of our questions, gave us rough timelines of how long everything could take and was upfront about how much money we would need at various points (which was a worry of ours) and reassured us that everyone in the process was invested in our success. After the initial consultation, he scheduled and attended open houses with us and provided well-researched info on all the towns we were looking in (commuter rail access, school systems, flood zones, etc.) He was patient with us through all the stress (spending that much money is stressful!) and we were able to get an offer accepted by early May and closed in mid-June! We couldn't be happier in our new home, and with the experience we had working with Corey. We would absolutely recommend working with Corey to buy a house.
We knew we were ready to buy a home but was not really familiar with the process. Corey sat down with us and went over the full process from getting pre approved, all the way to closing. He listened to what we wanted and found us amazing options in our budget. He was available whenever we wanted to schedule a viewing or go to an open house. His experience and knowledge were helpful when looking at homes, pointing out potential issues with homes or aspects that are rare to find. With his advice and guidance we were able to get an amazing home in a very competitive market. Once our offer was accepted Corey was on top of everything for us. He scheduled the inspection, kept in constant contact with the lawyers, bank, and sellers agent and was able to keep us on track to close in 3 weeks. The whole experience was stress free, enjoyable, and easy. Would highly recommend using Corey!
Was able to navigate a very difficult time with COVID-19 and went above and beyond to make sure we knew everything that was going on. I'd highly recommend using Corey when buying or selling real estate.
As a first time buyer I had a TON of questions about the whole process. Corey walked me through each thing that would happen from start to finish and helped me narrow down exactly what I was looking for. He was super knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and great at researching each property before we looked at it. He also was helpful during open houses and pointed out things I should look out for during the process. He helped me thoughtfully craft an offer and when my offer was accepted on the perfect place he made the rest of the process (which can be overwhelming) as smooth as possible! He was educated about each thing that needed to be done and when it needed to be done by. He also checked in regularly to ensure I didn't have any questions, and to see if there was anything I needed from him. I would highly recommend working with Corey and really can say he made a crazy process as stress-free as it can be!
