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 fantastic 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.
