“My husband and I had the BEST experience working with Boardwalk Real Estate for the sale of our house in Beverly as well as the purchase of our new home in North Reading. Buying and selling at the same time can be super stressful and overwhelming, especially when building new construction, which is what we were doing for the purchase of our new home. Working with Jim and Renee made the process for selling our home incredibly easy, from the moment they came to assess our property straight through until close, we didn’t hit a single bump in the road. Jim and Renee took great time and care to ensure we got the very most out of the sale of our home, recommending which home improvements would increase the value and which ones weren’t worth us spending the time and money, and taking show-stopping professional pictures of our house for the listing, extremely valuable and greatly appreciated benefits to attracting buyers to our listing and also to ensure we weren’t putting additional money into our property that we wouldn’t get back in the sale. Boardwalk had a comprehensive marketing plan in place once our house was ready to be listed and set us up with a super convenient process for scheduling private showings. Two days after our house hit the market, we had an offer OVER ASKING! As for the purchase and building of our new home, Renee was a true professional answering the hundreds of questions that we had about the building process all while seamlessly juggling the endless number of tasks associated with the construction process. There’s so much that goes into it and big decisions need to be made fast, bringing the level of stress and pressure to a whole new level. Renee has us feeling calm and confident throughout, ensuring we were well informed about what was happening, when it was happening, and why it was happening, allowing us to focus on making the right decisions for our new home and enjoy all the exciting aspects of building our dream home. My husband and I lovingly dubbed Renee Real Estate Agent of the Year many-a-time throughout the process because she was constantly and consistently exceeding our expectations. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better overall experience working with Jim, Renee and the Boardwalk Real Estate team. They are top notch professionals who really know the in’s and out’s of buying and selling in this crazy Boston market. Giant THANK YOU to Jim and Renee for everything you did to make our DREAM HOME a REALITY! We are forever grateful for your help during this process. We can’t wait to have you over to our new house soon to celebrate!”
