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 estate 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.
