We’re a boutique residential brokerage firm committed to thoughtfully and strategically helping our clients achieve their real estate goals.

Buying a new home

We give thoughtful consideration to how a client lives today and how they want to live tomorrow.

We believe that house hunting is a process that must be both informed and fun; one without the other just doesn’t cut it. Our relationship centered approach results in clients being heard, understood and better served. Believing that a home needs to reflect the aspirations and lifestyle of its owners, we invest the necessary time and energy into understanding our client and their needs and desires. The process for identifying the priorities for home location, features and amenities is the direct result of a dialogue that evolves organically.

We consider our work done when your toothbrush is next to the sink and your head hits the pillow, and you are finally, happily, home. We are happy to provide clients with introductions to some of the best professionals in the areas of building, architecture, design and art curation and collection.

Selling your home

We don’t take any chances when it comes to setting our Sellers up for success - from creating the most compelling marketing assets to high quality and fun showing experiences, we know how to get the highest price for your home and have set market records time and time again.

We get to know your home: the history, the architecture, the details and the ins and outs of the systems that make it hum. What makes it special? What stories does it tell? With a detailed narrative in hand, we market your home with a careful, targeted approach.

We specialize in creating individualized and strategic marketing plans for each property and client. Whether your home should be in the WSJ, Boston Common Magazine, or in publications across an ocean, we are happy to work to find your buyer wherever they may be. Our ultimate focus is on your objectives and bottom line, and we won’t wait for a buyer to come to us. Our contacts and connections span decades in the industry, we are invaluable partners in finding the right buyer for your home – and we will.
