What My Clients Say

Anna W.

Buyer
‟Ed is phenomenal! We were competing in a very difficult market (my father looked incredibly confused when I explained to him that homes in Boston actually sold for asking price, or significantly above) and Ed was extremely patient with us and gave us 110% throughout what was a pretty long process. Ed was extremely thoughtful about the advice he provided and never let us fall into the "hype" of the early 2013 market. He thought carefully about valuations and in the end, we are in a condo that we love and we paid a very fair price (and in fact found out that we won despite not being the highest bidders). Ed was very responsive to e-mails and phone calls (and being first-time home buyers, we pestered him a lot!!), met up with us at just about every open house we went to, set up tours for us, stayed through the entire home inspection, and was generally extremely "present" for us. By the end, Ed felt more like a trusted uncle rather than our broker (he even bought us a housewarming gift when we moved in!). If we stay in the area, we'll definitely use Ed again and we recommend him without reservations” Read More ▾

‟It's really hard to find a great Realtor. Ed Greable is the best out there. In the housing frenzy of the mid-2000s everyone and their brother got into real estate. I was in a bar where the bar tender was moonlighting as a mortgage broker and signing loans for people while serving them drinks. It was bad. Today the market has cooled considerably but there are still a lot of amateurs out there. It's hard to find someone in this field that is a true professional, that has the right contacts, and who actually brings value to your transaction. As a recent transplant to Massachusetts, in December of 2009 I started looking for a Realtor to buy a home in the Somerville / Medford area. I interviewed a lot of Realtors in the area and each of them felt "salesy" and slimy or inexperienced. And then I met Ed. He was very cool and calm, not aggressive, he listened and seemed to understand what I was looking for. He asked all of the right questions. When I told him I thought I would like to work with him, he didn't require an exclusivity contract like so many Realtors do. He felt his results would speak for themselves and we had a gentlemen's agreement. Ed immediately started showing me properties that met my criteria. He never tried to push me into a deal but he was also very straightforward about telling me how quickly (or slowly) he thought a particular property would sell for. He was very accurate with how much over or under asking price he thought a property would sell for. After a couple of months of looking for just the right place, we found it. Ed brought me to this property the day it hit the market. We were the first to make an offer in a pretty competitive space. Ed negotiated the deal throughout and managed to save me many thousands of dollars and did so in a professional manner where the seller felt like they were getting a fair deal and I felt like I was saving money. Further evidence of Ed's commitment to his client, me, was the fact that he actually made less money on the commission of this particular property than he could have made on others, but he knew this was the right property for me. As we got into the Escrow process, Ed's experience and professionalism continued to lend themselves to a great transaction; he suggested a great inspector, he got me in touch with a fantastic mortgage broker, he introduced me to the FHA 203k Program (a federally-insured rehabilitation loan program that I wouldn't have otherwise known about), he introduced me to a very experienced real estate attorney (who ended up saving me quite a bit of money in the Purchase & Sale agreement wording) and the many other people that required to make for a positive real estate transaction. This is where you get the most value from a great Realtor; finding the right home is important, structuring the best offer is important... but having the contacts to make the whole purchase process and subsequent ownership a smooth ride, that is what matters the most.  This is an area where Ed excels. I will definitely work with Ed again in the future and I recommend him to all of my friends.  He's a nice man and he's your best ally in a complicated and rapidly changing real estate market” Read More ▾

Elizabeth & Brian

Buyer
‟My husband Brian and I had a wonderful experience working with Ed. He's personable, and incredibly honest. As first time home buyers, we didn't necessarily have a knack for looking at the details. There were many instances in which Ed informed us a house we were considering was not the best choice. He often pointed out things that would need to be fixed and actually disagreed with our decision at first to make an offer on a house. Clearly his sixth sense was correct, as the sellers didn't accept our offer at first. We offered a great deal over asking price too. A week later, we found the sweetest colonial that we will be moving into at the end of August. Once our 2nd offer was accepted, the sellers from the first house came back to us and were hoping we might still be interested. We felt so lucky to have two house options to choose from in this market. We trusted Ed's judgment throughout the process, and actually found a house within 2 months of looking! Not to mention, because of Ed, we were featured on the front cover of the Boston Globe's June 11, 2013 issue. His suggestion to write a personal note to the family who owned the house clearly made all the difference. Ed always made himself available to us, late at night or early am. There were many times where I would ask him questions that were most likely out of left field, and he never made me feel like my question wasn't valid. Ed is very resourceful, and I find myself continuing to reach out to him to find professionals in the area to support us through the home buying process, as well as assist me with my taxes. We look forward to staying connected to Ed, and plan on inviting him to our housewarming. My husband has even mentioned that he would like for them to be friends. That's just the kind of guy Ed is” Read More ▾

Buyer
‟I first found Ed through Yelp and after seeing the reviews I thought I'd give him a shot. I'm glad I did. He is the best real estate agent I've worked with. He is professional, extremely knowledge, always available, and not afraid to talk straight. I don't know how he does it, but like the other Yelpers have said, he makes you feel like you are his only client. He also has a great team around him that make the home buying process a breeze. I was able to buy the 2 family home I was looking for in just two months despite being in a highly competitive sellers' market. No way could I have done it without him. Honestly can't say enough good things about Ed and will definitely be working with him again in the future” Read More ▾

Christina R.

Buyer
‟I've known Ed for over five years now and can't say enough good things about working with him. He was referred to me by a friend in 2009 and helped me find an incredible condo in Davis Square within a couple months. When I sold the condo to move in with my fiancee, I called Ed to handle the listing and we quickly sold it for more than I originally paid. He also helped a friend of mine find a great place in South Boston in 2012 and this year we called on Ed again to help us find a house in the Watertown/Waltham area. When we found our dream house, Ed's great advice helped us to beat out ten other offers to get it. Like other reviews have said, Ed is experienced, honest, and quick to respond.  He was a great sounding board throughout the house hunting process and helped us to feel informed and confident about our decisions.  Having Ed's help took a lot of stress out of the home buying and selling process. I recommend him to everyone I know” Read More ▾

Buyer
‟We just bought our first house with Ed's help. We knew we'd made a good choice as soon as we met him. He was no pressure, low-key, and had a good sense of humor - we found him really friendly and enjoyable. It didn't feel like we were working with a salesman, which was essential for us in this process as we kind of knew what we were looking for, an d didn't want to be rushed. Ed was responsive both by phone and e-mail and made himself very available to meet with us and show houses.  He was also excellent at facilitating the closing process, and helping to get information where it needed to go. He seemed to know how to match our pace and help where it was needed, which is helpful for first time homebuyers. We couldn't recommend him more highly” Read More ▾

Seller
‟You need a realtor to sell your place, call Ed. You need a realtor to help you buy your place, call Ed. You need a realtor just for advice for anything in the area, call Ed. I had first called Ed a few years ago when I was thinking about selling me place. He gave me good advice, was always happy to speak with me, always responded in a timely manner , and I decided not to sell my place. So when I did decide to finally sell my place, I called Ed and he still responded in a timely manner and was happy to meet with me. He was one of three realtors I met with and he came in with the best action plan on how to sell my place. The entire process was quick, incredibly efficient and best of all, took very little work on my part. He has very good knowledge of the market, the area, and is a problem solver. On top of it all, he is a darn nice person and very easy to work with! I could not have asked for a less stressful and positive real estate experience and Ed is a very big factor in that” Read More ▾

‟y wife, son and I moved to Cambridge from NY over a year ago. The idea was to rent first then find a town we would want to live and jump into the housing market as first time buyers. We had not been pre-approved and only a few ideas of towns we thought we would enjoy living in...then I walked past one of Ed's listings and called the number on the s ign. Ed was gracious with his time from the get go, he said the listing was in contract and asked if there was anything he could do to help with our search as a buyer's agent.  He was easy to correspond with and always returned calls and emails. We met in his office and he was an incredible wealth of information along with dedicated professionalism. We took the whole journey with Ed, the mortgage pre-approval process, target markets, house hunting on weekends and nights all the way to our closing...oh, did I mention this was during the worst winter in a hundred years?  He was always open to us changing our focus or exploring another town and made sure we understood pros and cons up front.  He answered my pregnant wife's many, many questions with patience and made the process of house hunting with an 18 month old stress free.  We slipped and slid our way through a handful of open houses and feel very lucky to have found a place we could call home in North Waltham.  He handled all the heavy lifting and his extended team are some of the best in the business. The whole experience was really positive and he made himself available to us from beginning to end. We are so thankful to have found Ed, all his advice and insight helped us tremendously as first time home buyers” Read More ▾

‟Ed was an invaluable resource for me and my wife during our home search. He knows the Somerville/Medford/Arlington/Cambridge area really well and knows almost all the "players" working in real estate in the area. He listened to our suggestions, knew when to steer us out of potential pitfalls, and referred us to an excellent loan officer and real es tate attorney. And he certainly dealt with our various idiosyncracies with patience and humor! There's no way around it--buying a home is a complicated process, especially if you're a first-time home buyer. Ed made the whole thing a lot less stressful, and a lot more fun. From all my interactions with him, I get the impression that Ed has a genuine interest in his work and the people he's working with--the exact opposite of the used car salesman mentality. Thanks in large part to Ed, we now own a beautiful home. We couldn't be happier with our choice in a buyer's agent” Read More ▾
