What do clients have to say about you?

I cannot say enough positive about Patti Brainard and her team. They assisted me with the sale of a 2 bedroom/2-bath condo in Harvard in the summer of 2018. Their guidance during the pre-sale activities (including pricing and reasonable staging), in working through the offers on the property, as well as in helping me to empty out the remaining items in the condo before closing, were excellent. I always felt that they were in touch with me throughout the process which, given that I live out of town, made everything feel under control and well-managed. I'm only sorry that I don't have another property to sell" -Kathy

"Working with Patti and the team was smooth and efficient from beginning to end during the selling of my property. Patti really knew the market in my area, and her comps and projections were right on the money. Her suggestions around improving the appearance of the property worked wonders and included recommendations for a general contractor and a professional stager, both of whom did a great job making my place look terrific. The photos, brochure, and open houses were all executed flawlessly. The efforts of Team Patti generated tremendous interest in my property, which, in turn, generated several offers well over the asking price." -Boston TrailBird

My family recently hired Patti Brainard to represent us and sell our mother's home in Waltham. We interviewed several realtors and chose Patti over the "local" brokers in Waltham as she was the most professional and courteous that we met. She made specific and detailed recommendations about improvements or fixes we could make in the house that would have significant return on investment. Her advice was spot on and we ended up getting more return than I believe even Patti thought. I was not keen on the idea of staging but they changed my mind when I saw how tastefully it was all put together. I believe that this too went a long way towards the degree of success we had with the sale. Neighbors of the home told us how busy both open houses were over the weekend and it certainly appeared that she got the word out. I would not hesitate to work with her again should the need arise and strongly recommend Patti and her team to anyone looking to sell a house.” Chris
