What My Clients Say

Joellen M.

Seller
‟I have known Ed for over 10 years and have worked with him in the past as agents in the same office and Ed is everything you want your realtor to be. He smart, savvy, outgoing and aggressive when he needs to be. He helped my family get through a very difficult sale, "difficult family members" and he kept the eye on the prize, it wasn't a million do llar deal, but it was important to us and he did everything he could to salvage the deal and the house sold by the skin of our teeth. He never let us know how difficult it was until years later. I recommend him to everyone I know. I call him about any smallest thing and he has time for me and gives me great advice, referring me to the right people for my business. All in all ED is TOPS in my book and you can tell by how well he is doing and well he is respected in the Real estate community. HE is a cool dad and has fun in life and he is the kind of guy you would love to have a beer with :) and just shoot the breeze” Read More ▾

Buyer/Seller
‟Ed was our agent both when we bought and sold our house in Watertown. He's a great guy and consistently on top of things. We got a great deal on our house and when we had to sell (moving out of state) a year later, he stepped up to the plate and we were able to sell our house with a significant profit and in less than a week on the market. If you'r e looking for a hard working and nice guy, look no further. And really, how many truly nice guys are there among real estate agents? Not that many” Read More ▾

Buyer
‟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 ▾

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 ▾

‟Both of my Somerville rentals gave me pretty short notice that they were moving out because one set of tenants bought a house and the others got married and wanted to move closer to friends and family in Quincy. I found Ed on yelp and saw the glowing reviews. He was quick and gave me great advice. His assistant, Noha, deals with most of the rentals and she took over my rentals after Ed took a look and gave his expert diagnosis on pricing, staging, improvements. Noha's advice was right in line with Ed's and with short time, she got both units rented. I thought my situation was pretty demanding and Ed and Noha rose to the challenge and knocked it out of the partk. I would highly recommend them for rentals and based on talking to them about their sales work, I'd guess they're equally competent with sales” Read More ▾

‟Very professional realtor. You are in good hands.”

Feifei L.

Buyer
‟As a pair of anxious first time homebuyers, working with Ed was the best choice we could have made! He was extremely helpful, knowledgable, respectful, and honest. We found him on Yelp, after asking all of our friends for recommendations and no one had had a positive experience with their realtors. Well, we had an absolutely positive experience wit h Ed. You truly feel as if you're his only client, as he is never too busy to answer a silly question, or to explain something for the 5th time, or to go see any house. He came with us to any open houses and showings that we wanted, helped us focus on everything from cities/neighborhoods (when we first met with him, our only criteria was "nearish to Cambridge or maybe IN Cambridge?!"), to the style of house (we wanted anything from a condo to a multi-family). At no point did he roll his eyes at our naivety or laugh at us. Through Ed, we were also connected with a great team, from his recommendations for mortgage broker and lawyer. We were quickly pre-approved and ended up closing on our cute little single family Medford colonial about 3 months after our initial meeting with Ed. We can't wait for spring to throw a housewarming party, play some horseshoes in the amazing backyard, and have Ed bring the beer” Read More ▾

Sarah C.

Buyer
‟I called Ed after reading these reviews on yelp a few months ago when I was just beginning my house search, and it was the best decision I could have made. Ed helped my fiance and I narrow down what types of properties and neighborhoods were a good fit by getting to know us and understanding what we were really looking for (even when I felt like I was changing my mind every day...). We were looking in a very competitive market and price point - Ed's experience and knowledge helped us feel confident it would all work out when as a first-time buyer, I felt anything but. He is a straight shooter, very responsive to emails/phone calls/texts, and an all-around good guy. Ed gave us honest feedback and steered us in the right direction when we needed it - pointing out repairs that might need to be done and how much they could cost when touring a property, helping us craft offers that were competitive but not outside our comfort zone, and navigating through some stressful negotiations. We closed on our new place last week, and I couldn't be happier with how things turned out. He knows the area, has a good reputation and relationships with other brokers, and can recommend other professionals to make the rest of your home-buying process go smoothly. He is the best - I would (and do) recommend Ed to anyone I know” 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 ▾

Helia Z.

Buyer
‟I could not have asked for a better experience house hunting than what I had with Ed. Having dealt only with rental brokers in the area, I was so grateful to finally work with a professional and courteous agent when it came time to purchase. Ed was thorough, available at all hours (even my ridiculous late ones), and made the process as seamless and stress-free as possible. When I was on the fence about a property, he provided his honest feedback and wasn't at all concerned about just making the sale. He even helped me through the very difficult rental situation I was trying to get out of - above and beyond the call of duty. I wholeheartedly recommend Ed - he's the most trustworthy agent I've ever worked with and I am so grateful to have been connected to him” Read More ▾

Jeff F.

Seller
‟My wife and I have worked with Ed as both a buyer's and seller's agent. He is a true professional who knows the market well and is a pleasure to work with. Most recently we listed our Condo for sale with Ed. He took it upon himself to invest in professional photography and staging that made a significant impact in the results. Within a couple days of the first open house we had 4 offers all above our asking price. Ed went above and beyond to ensure the whole process went smoothly and we could not be happier. Ed has earned our highest recommendation” Read More ▾

Elizabeth H.

Buyer
‟We found Ed online and we're so glad we worked with him! My husband and I were first-time home buyers and Ed couldn't have been more helpful. He patiently answers all questions and he's always incredibly responsive and professional. He'll give you his honest opinion and make valid and useful recommendations. Ed also has excellent insight regarding the housing market and communities around Boston. I truly recommend working with Ed. Especially in a hot market, it is so important to work with a trustworthy and knowledgable agent. We would choose Ed again in a heartbeat” Read More ▾

Clinton H.

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 ▾

Caroline B.

Buyer
‟Thanks to Ed, my husband and I had a great experience buying a home. We were referred by a close friend who also had this experience with him. Ed did an excellent job as an agent negotiating to make sure our offer was accepted. Ed makes you feel like his only client, working with your schedule, being accessible by phone, and he really pays attentio n to what it is that you like about homes and what is important to you. He gives you honest, factual information about the character of different communities, practical considerations like maintenance and building issues, etc. I never felt pressured, which was not what I expected having heard stories from other friends. Ed also can recommend great professionals for all the other services you may need making the buying process seamless and stressfree” Read More ▾

Mark O.

Buyer
‟Have you ever been through the home buying process? If so, I'm sure you can appreciate some of the complications that come along with such investment. For Boston and surrounding area real estate, look no further than Ed Greable with Keller Williams. Ed and his network will break down the process from A-Z for both experienced and first-time buyers. Speaking from the perspective of a first-time buyer, I would highly recommend giving Ed a call. Whether you're just looking and planning for budgetary purposes, or beginning to get serious; this guy was super helpful! He and his local network streamline all of the in's and out's that come along with the process. Ed was low-pressure and readily available for all of my requests, regardless of how picky I was along the way.  He really made me feel like I was his only client. I can personal say it has been both a pleasure and joy working with Ed” Read More ▾

Terry H.

Seller
‟It's hard to find a good, sincere, hardworking real estate agents. I've had several prior experiences in both buying and selling. Fortunately for us, we were referred to Ed by a friend. We interviewed several agents before deciding on Ed. He was very personable, honest and straight forward, plus very professional. We were hesitant at first, as one should in picking an agent; however, we were very pleasantly surprised that Ed stayed true to our first impressions. He continued to be very professional throughout our entire experience of selling our Somerville condo. He was always punctual. He used professional resources to best market our home and did everything imaginable to best help us get the most money for our home without having to spend an arm and a leg. Several other agents that we had interviewed had proposed we would spend this and that on that plus this. However, it would not have made much difference in return, except for making the agent's job of showing easier. Ed avoided these burdens on us and only focused on high return and practical solutions. We fully enjoyed and appreciated his help in selling our beloved home. No regrets. Can't truly imagine a better agent. Will definitely use him again in the future, even if we move to Hawaii and have to fly him out there :” Read More ▾

Frankie W.

Buyer
‟Ed came highly recommended to us by good friends. We gave him a shot and we knew right away that we wanted him on our side. My husband and I changed our minds on where we wanted to buy every other day. Ed was so patient with us. He figured out exactly what we wanted after a couple of visits with him. We looked at houses every weekend for a month or so. He was always willing to work with our schedule. When we found the house we wanted, Ed made the process a breeze” Read More ▾

Andrew K.

Buyer
‟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 ▾

Kim S.

Buyer
‟My husband and I hired Ed in 2008 to purchase a house. We considered other agents however we felt a strong connection with Ed and were impressed with his detailed knowledge of our target market area. We could not have been happier with that decision. Ed was very knowledgeable and quickly picked up on our preferences and recommended options we had n ot considered. In addition to helping us find the right house, Ed effectively steered us through the complexities of the closing process. We would not only recommend Ed but will use him again in the future” Read More ▾

Giles S.

Buyer
‟As first-time homebuyers, we were uncertain about what we were looking for and nervous about finding the right people to work with. Working with Ed assuaged our fears as he patiently led us through the process of finding a home. When we found a house that was perfect for us, he moved quickly and skillfully to ensure that our offer was accepted. At no point did we feel rushed or pressured. We were lucky to find Ed and would recommend him to anybody” Read More ▾

‟Ed is awesome - His knowledge of the area and experience makes him a necessity. He understands what obstacles and concerns first time buyers experience and is able to hand hold them throughout the process with ease. I highly recommended Ed's real estate services for buyers and sellers.”

Kate K.

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 ▾

Joshua M.

Buyer
‟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 ▾

‟I just closed on my first condo yesterday (I’m officially an adult)! I didn’t start with Ed, but I am glad I ended up finding him via Yelp. He was very low pressure and honest about every one of the (what seemed like) hundreds of properties we looked at. Knowing I was a first time home buyer he was patient and explained every little detail from A t o Z while offering objective suggestions. I’ve told just about everyone that will listen about Ed and how pleasant the experience was…I just hope my friends listen! I hate hearing about people who have had let downs or feel like the person isn’t working ‘for’ them. Ed goes above and beyond on everything! He even came to my closing and sat in a hot room with no AC while I signed/initialed over and over (again, what seemed like hundreds of times). One thing I can’t stress enough is how flexible and patient he is. I work nights so would ask that Ed only call me between certain hours unless a dream house hit the market. When my bank was dragging their feet with a mass housing loan…he suggested his friend who was a financial Speedy Gonzales and nailed everything down quickly and was also always available/patient! I could go on and on, but really just wanted to write more than just “he’s great” as a review. I am giving him all five stars here before I go and see if he has an account on angieslist… I found Ed via Yelp, if you’re reading this I’m guessing you’re in the market. Trust me, you will not be disappointed! So send him an email and meet, what’s the worst that can happen?! Also, protip: there’s always street parking behind their office if you have a Cambridge sticker” Read More ▾

‟Okay, this review has been a long time coming. Ed represented us twice, once when we didn't end up buying, and once when we did. His advice was good, and he made the experience as easy as it could be. On the first occasion that we were house hunting, Ed did most of the groundwork. I was flying back and forth from California, and needed someone t o get inside and judge the houses for me. Circumstances took us out of the housing market, but Ed did a great  job. He knew the neighborhoods well and pointed out the ups and downs of the houses. The second time, we were already renting in the area, and we did a lot of research by ourselves to find the place. Once we found the place we wanted, we brought Ed on to help us seal the deal. He found comps, recommended an excellent mortgage agent,  worked with our attorney, got contractors to fix things for the bank and helped us deal with a a miserable set of sellers who delayed closing and literally ripped out parts of the house that they wanted to keep as memorabilia. He did everything right, and was  a real help through the entire experience” Read More ▾

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 ▾

Elizabeth D.

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 ▾

‟Ed is, to put it simply, the best. My husband and I sought Ed out after finding him on Yelp. We were first time home-buyers, and we had been looking on and off for a home for a few years. We were also dealing in a competitive market and price point. Ed was fantastic to work with - he found us lots of options, and really payed attention to what we l iked. He gave us honest feedback about the properties we looked at, and really kept us from feeling desperate - he was always confident and clear that we'd find a home at a price that worked for us and one that we loved. And we did! Within two months of starting to work with Ed, we closed on our very first condo. We absolutely love it. We can't appreciate enough Ed's knowledge, recommendations, professionalism, patience, availability and sense of humor. He made a such huge difference for us. If you are looking for an agent, please, please don't hesitate to contact Ed! He has our highest recommendation and gratitude” Read More ▾

‟Ed was qutie patient working with us during our 8 month search for a new home. In fact, at one point (about 2 months into the process after having visited one property multiple times) we met up to make an offer on a place and he actually talked us out of, saying it wasn't the right place for us and that the right place would come along.

Robert S.

Buyer
‟Fantastic, Professional, and knows Cambridge/Somerville/­Brookline very well.  Knows the agents, knows the attorneys. Very personable, very patient. Used two other brokers before Ed, but very glad I switched. He's the top rated agent in Cambridge for a reason. Excellent at home valuation, better than my own models (and I'm a quant). Knows really fa ntastic home inspectors, contractors, etc. Was successful at negotiating down purchase price (for me, a buyer) after home inspection despite a very tight market following a great home inspection with fairly few flaws. Knows how to negotiate, when and how to add additions like larger deposits. He keeps track of the process, so even when I slipped up, he was there to make sure everything went on schedule. Very active, very responsive. Tactfully tracks down slow to respond seller's agents. Cannot say enough about this guy. Have recommended him to all my friends. Will use him again when we go to sell several years down the line. Would give more stars if they were available” Read More ▾

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 ▾

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 ▾

Shellie & Ed

Buyer
‟Ed is, to put it simply, the best. My husband and I sought Ed out after finding him on Yelp. We were first time home-buyers, and we had been looking on and off for a home for a few years. We were also dealing in a competitive market and price point. Ed was fantastic to work with - he found us lots of options, and really payed attention to what we l iked. He gave us honest feedback about the properties we looked at, and really kept us from feeling desperate - he was always confident and clear that we'd find a home at a price that worked for us and one that we loved. And we did! Within two months of starting to work with Ed, we closed on our very first condo. We absolutely love it. We can't appreciate enough Ed's knowledge, recommendations, professionalism, patience, availability and sense of humor. He made a such huge difference for us. If you are looking for an agent, please, please don't hesitate to contact Ed! He has our highest recommendation and gratitude” Read More ▾

Rob & Maria

Buyer
‟Ed was a recommendation to my wife, Maria, and I in 2005 to help us find a condo. Ed was diligent in his efforts to find us a home that suited our needs in location, style, budget, and many other attributes. He was patient with our odd behavior and tactics to find a home. We sought out Ed again in 2009 to help us sell the same condo as well as help us find a new single family house. He was knowledgeable on the market, knowledgeable in the processs of trying to close on two places simultaneously, and as always friendly and professional making the experience seemless. I highly recommend Ed for anyone looking to buy or sell a home and am happy to call Ed and his family our friends after our successful working relationship” Read More ▾

‟In my 4 years of working with Ed Greable, he has become the Realtor I trust most in the Boston area.

Buyer
‟Ed was a wonderful Realtor and a pleasure to work with. I truly felt he had my best interests at heart and never felt pressured into a decision. Yet, when I wanted his honest professional opinion, he would willingly give it to me. Ed was always punctual, honest, provided me with all the details and several options until we found the perfect place f or me. I can honestly say I got a great deal in a great neighborhood thanks to E” Read More ▾

Nathaniel & Ariel

Buyer
‟My fiance and I just bought our first house, and I'm not sure we could've made it happen without Ed. We interviewed several buyer brokers and were initially impressed by his deep knowledge of Somerville, professionalism, and patience (we had a lot of questions). At every step of the process Ed was available with information, answers, and suggestion s. People he referred us to (mortgage broker, lawyer, home inspector) were consistently better choices than others we interviewed, and his thorough explanations of each stage of the buying process kept us confident and (relatively) relaxed throughout. Our house purchase certainly wasn't a big money deal for Ed, but that didn't seem to make any difference -- he always made time for us and was proactive about keeping in touch and making sure things were on track. I've already recommended him to two different friends thinking about buying, and fully intend to work with him again when we eventually sell this place. Really, we can't speak highly enough of Ed. If you're looking to buy, do yourself a favor and give him a call” Read More ▾

Giles S.

Buyer
‟As first-time homebuyers, we were uncertain about what we were looking for and nervous about finding the right people to work with. Working with Ed assuaged our fears as he patiently led us through the process of finding a home. When we found a house that was perfect for us, he moved quickly and skillfully to ensure that our offer was accepted. At no point did we feel rushed or pressured. We were lucky to find Ed and would recommend him to anybody” Read More ▾

Cristina S.

Buyer
‟Ed came highly recommended to us by good friends. We gave him a shot and we knew right away that we wanted him on our side. My husband and I changed our minds on where we wanted to buy every other day. Ed was so patient with us. He figured out exactly what we wanted after a couple of visits with him. We looked at houses every weekend for a month or so. He was always willing to work with our schedule. When we found the house we wanted, Ed made the process a breeze” Read More ▾

Kim S.

Buyer
‟My husband and I hired Ed in 2008 to purchase a house. We considered other agents however we felt a strong connection with Ed and were impressed with his detailed knowledge of our target market area. We could not have been happier with that decision. Ed was very knowledgeable and quickly picked up on our preferences and recommended options we had n ot considered. In addition to helping us find the right house, Ed effectively steered us through the complexities of the closing process. We would not only recommend Ed but will use him again in the futur” Read More ▾
