Only 1 Residence Remaining at 2 Loring Street

“… the sale of the property went seamlessly.”

We worked with Mark Hand to sell our townhome/condo in summer 2014 and were extremely pleased with the experience and the results. From the initial scoping discussions, even before we had made the decision to sell, Mark gave us some great feedback on some projects we could undertake to improve the  ‘marketability’ of our home but never applied any pressure. Once we had made the decision to sell, we didnt have to worry about much. Mark’s approach included professional photography, carefully timed and planned open houses, and agressive marketing, all of which drove significant interest in our home. When it came to the pricing discussion, which as I understand it can be a bit of a sensitive one for a lot of homeowners, he handled it professionally and gracefully and was dead on with his suggested listing price.

A few short weeks later, we were in a multiple offer situation. Mark did a great job of summarizing all of the offers for us, including a detailed breakdown of the various pros and cons of each, in an easy to digest manner. He handled the negotiations skillfully and the sale of the property went seamlessly (and it was sold for over asking). Mark was always available for a conversation or a meeting, day or night, even though his wife was due with a child at any point! I would highly recommend Mark to any homeowner.

“… a genuine pleasure to work with.”

We have now worked with Samantha on two separate residential real estate transactions and I would share with you that she was very competent, knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of her field. She is confident, experienced, has a can-do attitude, and is very thorough when it comes to details and follow through. She was also a good problem solver when needed and a genuine pleasure to work with. We would recommend her to anyone in the market buying or selling a residential property and will definitely call upon her again.

“… excellent connections that make the process a piece of cake.”

Mark Hand’s knowledge of the real estate world is outstanding! Mark has sold two properties for me and also found my current home. One of the properties he sold for me was an extremely difficult sell in a difficult market and he powered through it! He is nothing but professional and hard-working and has excellent connections that make the process a piece of cake. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

“… the offers came quickly.”

From the first meeting with Samantha, I knew that I found the perfect real estate professional to market my condo. She is professional, down to earth, knowledgeable about the various Boston  neighborhoods, and is highly responsive. Samantha was also very respectful of my needs and also knew the right time to step in when I needed guidance or advice on the selling process. I had a tenant living in the condo at the time it was placed on the market and Samantha could not have been more respectful and patient with the tenant. I truly enjoyed working with Samantha. The process was seamless, the marketing materials were beautifully designed and the offers came quickly. If you are looking to put your home on the market, I recommend Samantha Jason.
