Seller

I couldn’t be happier with my McCormack and Scanlan Real Estate experience. Bryan Szela worked as the primary agent to help me to sell my property in Jamaica Plain and buy my new property in Norwood. Bryan is a great example for client service and throughout both transactions worked in my best interest. For the sale of my condo in Jamaica Plain Bryan guided me through the preparation for the Open House. He was so organized he prepared a timeline for me. After the Open House he and Colleen Scanlan helped review the multiple offers for the condo to choose the one that would put me in the best position to buy my new home. Bryan’s guidance when we purchased our new home was priceless. He made sure that we found exactly what we were looking for within the timeline we needed. When we looked at properties he pointed out things that were positive and negative about each place. His pro-activeness…

Throughout the buying and selling processes his recommendations for a painter, mover, and attorney were spot on.

Buyer & Seller

I had the most wonderful experience with the entire team over at McCormack and Scanlan! It started with listing and selling my condo. I worked closely with Karen and Paula who made the process painless by helping me to understand the price-point, market, and best ways to present my home. Searching for my new home was a lot of fun. Karen and Bryan helped me to understand the best fit for me. Bryan helped me find my new palace and walked me through the entire process! The entire team helped me feel confident with each decision, and we had a lot of laughs along the way! I have been in my new home for 15 months and I could not be happier with the outcome! I know that my experience was made better by working with McCormack and Scanlan and I would recommend them highly to anyone looking to sell and/or buy.

Karen is a dear friend, colleague and a mentor. She offered help when I was starting with Pleasant Realty group, even she was a new broker herself. She was very successful from the start and split her listings with me when I straggled at a start of a new carrier. Her generosity, real help and believe in my ability gave me "wings". My own business took off and I made a "Rookie of the year" shortly after that. I am forever grateful to Karen and so are many people that are lucky enough to meet her on their life path. A true professional, she is dedicated to her clients and is perfect at doing her job. I am very proud of her and happy to see that her own company is doing so well. Go Karen!

My mother hired Roberta Stone to sell her condominium in Jamaica Plain, at a time of illness and transition to independent living. Ms. Stone was professional, courteous and emotionally supportive during this difficult time. In a terrible market, she found a purchaser with remarkable speed, helped negotiate a good price, and guided Mother through the hoops required for closing with sensitivity and good humor. I deeply appreciated the care and attention that she brought to the situation, and would recommend her highly for anyone seeking to purchase or sell any kind of property in the Boston area.

Buyer

Bryan was indispensable in our purchase of an investment property in Jamaica Plain. His knowledge of the neighborhood, current and projected market values allowed us to make an informed decision on the purchase of our property. He is generous with his time and advice and always went above and beyond what was expected. Bryan also was extremely helpful finding great tenants, and executing the leases and finding us local talent to keep the property in good shape. Without hesitation I would recommend Bryan to anyone looking for a home in the Boston area.

Buyer

When my wife and I were looking to buy a home we were a bit overwhelmed. Our mortgage broker recommended a realtor that made us feel even worse about our prospects. Luckily, our friends/neighbors referred us to Karen and Paula from McCormack and Scanlan. Karen and Paula were patient with us and took time to answer our copious questions about the home buying process. During the search, submitting offers, the home inspection, and final negotiations Karen and Paula were with us every step of the way and always offered words of encouragement.

Martha V.

I worked with Karen earlier this year when I sent her a lead from San Antonio. I sold her mom a house in San Antonio and her mom told me that her daughter, who lives in Boston, wanted to buy a condo in the downtown area. Karen was very quick to respond and gave me weekly updates. I was very happy with the service she provided for me and my clients daughter. I would not hesitate to recommend her to another agent or client. She did a suburb job with follow up and am proud that she is a representative of a true professional broker in Boston.

Kate & Robert

I really cannot say enough good things about our experience working with McCormack and Scanlan. We felt we were in such good hands they were incredibly knowledgeable about the area and 100% on our side. We were buyers in a crazy seller's market and they gave us excellent advice in terms what was worth the price, how much to offer, and when to walk away. We really couldn't have asked for a better experience. Should we ever sell our wonderful house and begin a search for a new one, we will absolutely be using them to help us find and sell.

I have worked with Roberta Stone for over a decade. My clients, without exception, have found her a superb real estate broker. Her integrity, depth of knowledge of the real estate market, and understanding the needs and desires of a broad range of purchasers and sellers make Roberta ideal to work with. Her attention to detail is invaluable in each step of the process. Roberta truly puts her clients first. I know my clients are well taken care of when working with Roberta.

Harold P.

Roberta Stone is a true professional. As a Massachusetts Licensed Home Inspector I can find myself at odds with short sighted, close this deal no matter what real estate brokers who cringe at the prospect of a thorough and detailed home inspection. Roberta is not like that. She encourages the unvarnished truth, the good the bad and the downright ugly, You want to work with an honest person like Roberta.
