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 suggestions. 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.
