Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We would not have found our home within the timeframe we needed if it weren’t for Steve and The Home Advantage Team. Relocating to the Boston area meant not only finding a house, but figuring out which town to live in first! Steve and the team helped us narrow our search, find a town we liked and then a home that fit our lifestyle – all within a quick turnaround of just a few weeks. There were so many nuances and details that we just would not have known about, and their experience and knowledge to keep us five steps ahead of the game. We couldn’t have done it without them, and we recommend them to anyone looking for unparalleled real estate services.
Ian & Carolyn - Buyers in Needham
Great experience. Very professional.
Roger - Seller in Somerville
In my opinion, this team and real estate company are the best in the area, and that is why I chose to have them sell the property! They did a fantastic job from start to finish!
Gina - Seller in Arlington
Steve is a very organized and professional sales agent. On top of that he has excellent people supporting him like Mitzi, Kristen and others. They work as a very good team. He works hard to cultivate this team. Steve also has good suggestions for the seller on the timing of the house as well as the best ways to show or display the house for selling. VERY IMPRESSIVE.
Subbu - Seller in Lexington
Steve and Erika are both total pros and handled all aspects of our home sale with skill and aplomb. Steve worked us as we considered the implications of listing our home, and after we decided on a strategy, he brought in Erika to handle the marketing and sales processes. Would definitely use them again!
Sam & Jinna - Sellers in Arlington
I have met several agents over the years and I wouldn't work with anyone other than Steve. I'm sure Bowes provides him with the resources he needs to be successful, but it's really about the experience with him. He gave us the confidence we needed to make the purchase. He did a very good job helping us understand the risks and weaknesses of the home, and helped us understand the investments we would need to make. He also balanced all of this with the positives. He was very patient with us, learned our style and 4 months after purchase, we are happier now with our new home than at the time of buying.
D.P - Buyer, Lexington
Annie and Steve were amazing from open(house) to close(ing). We knew from our first meeting that BOWES was the proper choice for our Realtors. Both Annie and Steve answered all of our questions and demonstrated their expertise and professionalism throughout the entire process. Annie was always available to us even at absurd hours. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and made the selling of our first house bearable. BOWES will definitely be contacted when selling in the future.
Kevin & Melanie - Sellers in Stoneham
I knew of the reputation of Steve McKenna and the Home Advantage Team (who wouldn't... his signs are everywhere) - and there was simply no choice other than to hire them! As you can imagine, selling our home of 23 years and buying a new one can be, well let’s just say crazy. He made the process less stressful. Communication, follow-up, follow-thru was fantastic. Everyone one on his Team, and let me call out those names, Erika Pereira, Mitzi Pallotta, Mike Pallotta, Donna Agostino, Kristen McKenna, were professional, amazing and always there for whatever crazy question, request we had! Equally important is the "dance" of selling and buying at the same time. Let me not forget the best part - multiple offers on our home, a great price and great terms! Steve and his team are an "army of amazing professionals!" I would highly recommend them!
Robert & Maria - Sellers in Arlington
Buying a home can be a fun but very stressful process. We wanted someone that we could trust, that took the time to understand our needs and that we could get along with during the long process of viewing potential homes. We first met Erika Pereira in 2006 when we bought our first home in the area and have used her services three times now. We will never use anyone else. Whenever we would call or email Erika her response was always very quick. We called her several times on short notice to see a property and she would always make it happen.
What makes working with Erika so great is her patience in finding the perfect home for each individual client . It took us more than 4 months of searching to find the house we wanted and at times it was very frustrating finding exactly what we wanted. During this time, Erika would never let us lose sight of our goals or settle on something that didn’t fit what we told her we wanted from the beginning. When we ultimately did find our new home, Erika was also there to protect our interests when dealing with the sellers. We were very comfortable through the entire process of selling our old home and buying our new one. Erika and the entire Home Advantage team were there to tend every detail and make the process very smooth. Erika is not only a great buyer’s agent, but now a dear friend.
Tina, Jack & Jake – Buyers from Arlington
My association with Steve McKenna was extremely positive. Steve and his team honored every arrangement they made with me; provided me with accurate answers to my many questions, advised me as to when I should consult/obtain legal advice; made positive suggestions regarding things required so that I could sell my property for top dollar (I received two offers that were above the asking price) and stood by me with further advice and guidance when my first offer fell through. I never felt like I was receiving any “pressure” and it was always made clear to me that all decisions were mine and that no action would be taken on anything (no matter how small) without my permission. This was explained to me clearly “up front” and Steve and his team lived up to exactly what they said. They far exceeded my expectations . Their professionalism and dedication certainly showed!
