Ellen came highly recommended.

Not once have I regretted my decision. Ellen goes above and beyond most real estate agents. From day one, Ellen kept me up to date on who was coming into my home. When showings were over, Ellen always would call to let me know things had gone. Once sold, which was quickly, Ellen continued to keep me up to date. This is a rarity. I highly recommend Ellen. If you want a real estate agent, that's professional, knowledgeable, and truly works for you, call Ellen Friedman. This may sound silly, but I really will miss our chats.

From the second I met Candice she remembered my name, my daughter's names and took an interest in my needs, my family and my life.

She was always reaching out to me about properties listed, and when they didn't work out she remained positive. As the process continued she met more of my family members and was extremely polite, remembered their names and always made us feel like we mattered. What makes Candice great at what she does is that she's a caring person, not just a realtor.She knew what we wanted and needed and wouldn't stop until we were happy.

"Aaron Pyman was extremely helpful, friendly and always available whenever needed.

He went the extra mile for us. I don't know what we would have done without him."

Kathy Connors, Medfield (Buyer)

March 2018 "I would like everyone to know what a great and dedicated real estate agent Jodi Karit is!

If you want someone who goes more than the extra mile for you it’s Jodi. She takes all your calls or gets back ASAP if she can’t pick up. She will go anywhere for you. I can’t imagine the miles on her car. She went from one end of the state to other. Never said no I can’t , it was always “let me know when your ready”. My family needed a very particular type of property, it took awhile to find it. When we were ready to put the offer in it was after nine at night. She walked us through the whole process and made sure the deal was good for us. Had she not been on that offer late into the night we would have lost it. As you must know , that is very disappointing, frustrating and takes a lot of time to find another one. We are so grateful for persistence and putting up with my indecisiveness. Hats off to Jodi! Years of experience make a difference. !"

The one thing I think that overwhelmingly stands out is how “at ease” we felt working with the Julie Etter Team.

Professional at every point and friendly.

Brad, Franklin, MA

I was the seller for 18 Damon St Kim was wonderful to work with, her responsiveness and guidance were very welcomed in what can be a stressful time.

This process could not have went better, bumps are to be expected but Kim was able to guide me through the rough roads and we came out in great shape.. Thanks for Everything !!!

Rick Cote

Ellen was wonderful.

She took the time to answer any and all questions we had, she recommended a great mortgage company for us, and she did not stop looking for potential houses until we found one we loved. From the start of our search until the day we moved in, Ellen was there to help with everything! She made the home buying process much easier. I would recommend her for first time buyers like us, as well as buyers who have bought before and would like a smooth, easy process.


Ellen succeeded where two other agents failed and sold our home.

She patiently worked with us months in advance of the listing and connected us to a professional stager and photographer who helped us to present our home at its best. She was particularly astute regarding appropriate pricing which was critical for being able to finally sell the home. Ellen was always responsive and respectful. I highly recommend her looking to sell or buy a home.


"Brian was recommended to us by one of my physician colleagues.

We initially had our home on the market as a ‘For Sale by the Owner’ and our potential buyer backed out at the P&S stage. Brian came to our rescue. Within one week he had arranged professional images of our home and helped us to emphasize the strength of our property. He was there to address every detail of the process and gave us ‘hands-on’ guidance with staging, arranging furniture, reviewing the lighting and enhancing our home with an elegant and welcoming look. No wonder that during the first open house, he represented the house so well that we received an offer from a serious buyer and sold the property! Brian assisted us even further as we had been moving out of the area. He is a tremendous resource and a wonderful person to work with. We highly recommend Brian to anyone!”

Jolan & Otto W.

She was outstanding and went above and beyond expectations!

She made everything go very smooth even as first time home buyers! She was prompt to answer all my questions and connect me with all the necessary people. Her knowledge of this process saved us a few grand as well!

Rosa Guzman, Holliston

“We had a very pleasant experience working with Brian to purchase our new property.

He is very knowledgeable of the market, which saved a lot of time and energy to discover the best fit for our needs. His positive attitude, great negotiation capabilities, professional work ethic made the whole purchasing process very smooth and pleasant. I would highly recommend Brian to our friends.” UPDATE: We have now purchased more than one property with Brian!

Qianning & Yuan Z.

To both sell and purchase a home at the exact same time is no easy task- at times we thought it might be impossible given the low inventory in our town.

Not only did Kim walk us through both the purchase and sale processes with near perfect execution, but her timing, extensive knowledge, quick response time, negotiating skills and TREMENDOUS resources allowed us to pull it off with relative EASE- all a week before Christmas! Probably the best part of our experience with her was her TRUE and GENUINE commitment to helping us find the right house for our family. We felt absolutely NO pressure- her only motivation was to help us find the perfect home for us. She was patient with the process, and took the time to really understand our needs as a family. If I ever had to go on this emotional rollercoaster again, I would DEFINITELY want Kim with me on that ride. She was thorough, professional, flexible, and even made us laugh during it all. We HIGHLY recommend her services- you will NOT be disappointed!

Marcie DiChiara

What a wonderful realtor I am very lucky to have to have like mr Jacob .

he was very respectful and helpful in the process of buying my new home .he became like a member of my family. I am willingly will recommend him to all my family and friend who would like to buy homes in future. Thank you Jacob Kravitz and may god bless you.


Ellen helped us with the search, negotiation and closing of our new home.

We moved from out of state and were not too familiar with the different towns around the Boston area. She was CONSTANTLY looking for us, communicating with us and was available whenever we could get to MA to visit homes. When we found the one that we bought there were several offers on the home. Ellen helped us to craft an offer that was accepted. Since we have moved in, she has referred us to various services that we were in need of and (Veterinarian, doctors, shower door installer etc.) and each recommendation has been excellent! We love our new home and can't thank, and recommend Ellen enough!

R. Sugai-Fernandez

I was impressed by Ellen’s spot-on recommendations of what needed to be done to sell my mother’s house.

Her expertise in providing a thorough analysis of the local market to price the house appropriately and what adjustments were needed to the interior and exterior of the house to make it more appealing to potential buyers lead to multiple offers with a sale at the asking price. After the offer was accepted, Ellen continued to work with inspectors, repairmen, the buyer and lawyers to close on time and complete the sale. From the beginning of the process to the end, Ellen’s experience and knowledge was second to none and made the selling of my mother’s house happen quickly with little burden for our family.

A. Mastronardi

Ellen was extremely helpful and patient throughout the process of us finding and buying our home.

She offered excellent advice about the different steps and requirements of home buying which made everything smooth and easy. She is also a great source for recommendations not only for lenders and inspectors but also for additional services after we bought our home. You can tell Ellen takes her job seriously and truly values her clients time and interests. I wanted an agent who would focus on our interests and not just another sale, Ellen fit this description and then some. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a new home.


"As first time home sellers, we could not be more pleased working with Colleen!

She completed a thorough market evaluation of our home, including comps in the area that assisted us in determining the appropriate sale price. We only had to hold two open houses over the course of a weekend and had 17 offers on our home! We sold for $13,000 over list price. Colleen listened to our needs and wants and guided through the entire process making it a stress free experience. If you are looking for a realtor that is extremely knowledgeable, organized, driven, and accommodating to your needs and wants, then choose Colleen Henney with Berkshire Hathaway."

Bob & Emily

I have sold three houses and bought four in my lifetime.

I have never used the same real estate agent twice because I did not have good experiences with any of them. Colleen is now the exception! She was fantastic in every way!! She went way above and beyond our expectations! I would highly recommend Colleen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Kristen S.

"We recently sold our Hopkinton condo with the help of Colleen.

She worked with us to stage it then we disappeared to Florida for the winter and left her in charge. She held an open house every Sunday for 8 weeks and was in constant communication with us for feedback. She kept the condo clean made sure heat was on. We felt very confident with her in charge. Our condo sold in 40 days half the expected time! I would highly recommend hiring Colleen as your realtor"


My wife and I recently purchased a home and Jacob Kravitz served as our realtor.

Jacob provided exceptional service during the entire process. From our first prospectus meeting until closing, Jacob exceeded our expectations. We appreciated how tech savvy Jacob was in regards to communication, documentation, and followup. Jacob was available 24/7 as he consistently kept communication lines open. When it came to documentation, Jacob made sure to walk us through line by line exactly what was taking place. Jacob started as our realtor and ended as a dear friend. You will be in good hands if you partner with Jacob on your next residential or commercial property venture.

Jay & Myriam

I had such an amazing experience working with Colleen.

She asked questions I didn’t think of, and got answers for the ones I did! She helped me obtain my forever home I had been searching for and I will be forever grateful. An absolute hard worker and pleasure to work with, I will recommend her highly to friends and family. Thanks so much Colleen!

Marie M.

I would be remiss if I did not let everyone know what an amazing realtor Hillary is!

My husband and I hired her to help us sell our first home together and buy our forever home. From the very beginning, Hillary was fully dedicated to helping us on our journey together. She was very thorough and attentive when listing our house, helping us to get top dollar. She went above and beyond helping us prepare for the open house, even making flower arrangements to add the perfect touch! Hillary was very responsive. I remember emailing her at 10:30 pm about a listing I was interested in viewing and before I even woke up the next day, she had already set up an appointment for a showing! She was very knowledgeable and always available to answer questions, explain the process and help ease anxiety!!I She helped to make a stressful and crazy process a lot of fun!! Hillary is very passionate about real estate, which was evidence not only through her abundant knowledge, but the personal interest she took in helping us buy and sell. It was clear this was more than just a job for her. I would highly recommend Hillary to anyone who is looking to buy/sell a house!!

Outstanding Flexibility as we began to zero in on what we wanted.

Judy G., Sharon

As an attorney, I met Brian through a client that was hospitalized.

He had requested that Brian handle the sale of his home. For many reasons, the sale of this property could have been extremely difficult. Within days, Brian had 8 offers for me to review. The sale proceeded smoothly with Brian available and instrumental throughout the process. Brian is a conscientious and knowledgeable Realtor and I highly recommend him!

Paul P.

"Aaron Pyman worked very hard and went above and beyond in order to obtain a P&S on the property and then continued with meticulous follow up and problem resolution right up until the closing.

He did a great job."

Jim Moore, Millville (Seller)

Ellen was a pleasure to work with!

As a first time home buyer, she helped me every step of the way. Ellen took the time to get to know my daughter and I, and went above and beyond as it relates to finding us a house. She attended every appointment with me and was able to provide tremendous insight. Even though my work schedule was a bit crazy with travel, Ellen worked around that and was able to help find my dream house quickly. She is extremely organized and even when things didn't go as smoothly as possible, she communicated with me throughout the entire process and was able to take care of any issues we encountered. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else and would highly recommend Ellen!


"Brian was a pleasure to work with while trying to sell our home.

His professional and thoughtful approach along with a solid work ethic, market knowledge and negotiating expertise helped our home sell quickly. Brian's positive attitude, energy, sense of humor and responsiveness made him enjoyable to work with. I would strongly recommend Brian for all your residential real estate needs!"

Michelle Z.

Ellen was very easy to talk to and work with.

She kept us informed through the entire process, was always easy to reach and returned phone calls immediately. We always felt as if we were Ellen's number one priority!


Hillary was great and helped us through a tough closing situation!

Always was looking out for us. We would highly recommend her for selling or buying. Sold a home in 2018 in South Attleboro, Attleboro, MA 02703.

Caitlin Dotolo 5/5 stars,

"Colleen has been such a great agent over the past many months.

My wife and I have been looking for our home almost a year and Colleen has been a great help along the way. She always had logical thoughts to the homes we would view with great insights to the local community and education system which was important for us. She was quick to respond and always had time for us when a new house would peek our interest. I highly recommend working with Colleen in finding your home, her friendly personality has been a pleasure to work with and we couldn't be happier in our new home."

Dan & Sili

Ellen does it right.

As first time home buyers we knew nothing of this process and Ellen walked us through every step of the way. More than anything else, she wanted us to be happy with the process. She was amazingly responsive to calls, texts, and emails whenever they were sent. She honed in on our preferences almost before we knew what they were and she was able to direct us to a number of great houses so that it felt like we had so many options to choose from. We would definitely use Ellen if we were ever to move and have already told others to get in touch with her!


"My husband and I are currently selling our home and purchasing a new one and we consider ourselves lucky to have found Jodi who guided us in both transactions.

She is really easy to work with and was available whenever we needed her for help. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who needs help selling or buying a home." Vonn03 104 Conrad Rd, Marlborough, MA 01752

Yvonne Boutte

"Jodi was extremely responsive and helpful in all aspects of finding our new home as well all of things that needed to be done to get the home we wanted.

The process started late one evening and Jodi worked on getting the offer to the seller by 10:30 that evening. She was always available to get information on the many properties she showed and when it came to get our new home as we all know the amount of time and paperwork needed is daunting. Jodi was a pleasure to work and always professional" ERNIE HILLIER 21 Corbin Rd, Dudley, MA 01571

Ernie Hillier

We worked with a couple other realtors prior to Ellen and experienced the stereotypical sales agent trying to get their commission.

I’m not saying that they’re not nice or truthful, but they prioritize making a sale. Ellen is not your typical realtor. I could give countless examples but I would be here all day. She basically works 24/7. You can always reach her, she’s always sending you information, always accommodating your needs, and strives to find you a home that works for YOU, not her bottom line. Not many realtors are as diligent with research, negotiation, and attention to detail as Ellen is. Try her out, you may be caught off guard initially by her responsiveness.


"Brian was very accommodating during the sale of my home.

His manner was very professional and he made the selling experience most enjoyable. I would highly recommend Brian!" ​

Catherine S.

Shannon and Alyson did a wonderful job.

They always kept up with the listings and what I was looking for. When I found something on my own they immediately looked it up and told me everything I that needed to know about it. They were very patient with me because I was picky on what I wanted with a house and what I could afford. I would recommend them to anyone because they are dedicated to the job. They give you first class treatment all the time and get you what you want!

Garin Eisele

It was a pleasure working with Ellen as sellers.

She provided a comparative market analysis to determine a fair selling price, listed the property on-line prepared pictorial brochures, mailed postcards and had an open house in an epic brief time frame. All the proper documents were filed in timely fashion. The house sold within a week. She is a true professional, trustworthy, caring, dedicated, attentive to detail, constant overseer of the process while keeping us well informed. We highly recommend Ellen for your realty needs.

These girls were absolutely awesome!

Being first time home buyers we were extremely nervous but Alyson and Shannon made everything seamless and hassle free! Thanks again ladies!

Jeff Morandi & Elizabeth Schoener

"I have worked with other Realtors but had never met anyone as committed to our search as Brian.

We first met Brian at one of his open house events and soon found him to be very knowledgeable, highly accessible and affable. We were interested in a bank owned property and most agents would have discouraged us due to the uncertainties and heavy lifting they would have to conduct...but not Brian. Brian navigated the entire process very shrewdly with the bank and in return, we received a very good deal! In the process, Brian became very close to our entire family."

Ravi U. & Saradha M.

"They say "things happen for a reason" and my husband meeting Brian O'Keefe, purely by chance, at a local restaurant is proof of that.

My husband was impressed with Brian after their first conversation and the feeling continued as Brian worked tirelessly to help us find our new home in the Metrowest area. Relocating from out of state, especially with three young children, can be stressful. Brian made house hunting fun & exciting for our whole family. He really listened to us and got to know what we were looking for in a home. He has a very good eye when showing houses, which helped us know right away if a home was a possible good fit or not. What also impressed me was how Brian engaged our kids right from the start. He made each of them feel important and definitely helped make what could have been miserable days of dragging them from house to house, seem like a real adventure. We are thrilled to be settling into our new home in Holliston and feel pretty confident, had we not met Brian, we would still be searching. We are hopeful to stay in touch with Brian, as he was our family's first real connection here in Massachusetts. "

Colleen & Gordon H.

Brian O’Keefe was the absolute best realtor to work with.

Right from our first meeting we knew he was genuine, hard working and trustworthy. When we started our search for our first home, Brian was constantly in touch with us. He gave us options of homes to review, and would schedule appointments for showings right away. It’s really nice to have a realtor who you know is in your corner. He was patient as we waited for the right home to come along. When we did find the home we wanted, he helped us every step of the way, even getting our offer submitted late on a Sunday evening from his home office. Because of his quick effort, we got the house! He attended our home inspection and even spotted a few things the inspector missed. His negotiating skills are strong and he got us a fair and reasonable final price. Being first time home buyers, we didn’t know how to go about some steps in the buying process, but Brian guided us through it all. We couldn’t have done it without him! Also, Brian is one of the best guys I’ve ever met, he feels like an old friend now! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy and sell who wants the absolute best realtor on their side. Thank you for everything Brian!

Haleigh & Devon R.

My husband and I can’t say enough about Claire Preece!

She gave us a thorough Market Analysis that was spot-on, and gently, but firmly, pointed out issues with our current home that would need to be addressed before putting it on the market. Her friendly but calm demeanor immediately puts clients at ease. A consummate professional!

Barbara Allen

Jodi was extremely helpful and professional throughout our entire buying and selling process.

She always made herself available to us made sure that all of our needs were met. I would go back to her without question for any future needs.

AMAZING barely describes the time and effort Jodi put into my buying my "Happily Ever After" home.

I told her about the over 55 community I wanted to live in and she immediately sent out a postcard mailing. Within 3 days she got a call. Her professionalism, knowledge and market understanding took me from 1st showing to closing in 50 days. I definitely made the best decision by choosing Jodi and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced realtor

Diane Fitzgerald

Testimonial "Less than two weeks ago, my husband and I closed on the sale of our condo.

We were fortunate to have found Brian O’Keefe to handle the sale for us. Brian was enthusiastic and reassuring, calm in the face of our occasional panic, dependable and charming. He helped us post ads for some of our unwanted furnishings and even hauled away some junk at the eleventh hour when the buyer asked us to move up the closing date. We highly recommend Brian O’Keefe, whether you want to sell your property or buy a new place. Half of the anxiety will melt away if you do.”

Clare M. & Peter C.

Her presentation was thorough.

She spent the time to develop a relationship with us, earning our trust.

Michael, Plainville, MA

I am so glad I met Ellen!

Being a First-Time Homebuyer can be a scary process, but with Ellen there to advise and guide me, it became an easy process from beginning to end. She's extremely knowledgeable, so easy to talk to and she really listens to you. She truly cares about her clients, and it shines through. And she's also a great resource if you need recommendations for electricians, plumbers etc. to have work done at your new home. I highly recommend Ellen, and would love the opportunity to work with her again!


"From beginning to end, Aaron Pyman knows how to get the job done.


C. Wickstrom, Millville (Seller)

Celia stayed in constant touch with us during all the different parts of the process so we always knew exactly what was going on and promptly returned any calls or answered any questions we had

Katherine was great!

Robin Moisan

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Plainville, MA.

-We loved working with Hillary. We listed our old house with her and she helped us find our new house. Seriously, she knew how to smooth things over and make it work! She is knowledgeable, had our best interests in every interaction and was a pleasure to work with. We would list with her again and again and again. 5 stars isn't enough!

"I attended an open house in which Aaron Pyman was hosting and it was his listing.

We just clicked right away. He seemed to be an excellent realtor but more importantly, an overall genuinely nice human being. He made this purchase painless for me. I would highly recommend Aaron to friends who are interested in buying or selling their homes. I've been very pleased with Aaron's performance overall”

Wendi B., Milford (Buyer)

We have worked with Julie in the past and it was absolutely stellar.

She came through once again and did not disappoint.

Jonathan, Taunton, MA

My husband and I hired Hillary to sell our home and help us to find the perfect home in which to raise our growing family.

She explained the process to us in a way that we could understand, helped us to prepare for our open house, and kept in constant communication during the process. We had three offers on our house within 24 hours of our open house and were able to accept an offer over asking. Hillary also worked tirelessly to find us our dream home. She took into account our needs and wants, and found us a perfect home for our family. She was very attentive throughout the process, and ended up finding us a home that met all of our requests. Hillary is a natural realtor. I felt at ease and could immediately trust that she had our best interests in mind. I would strongly recommend her.

“We are truly grateful that a friend recommended Brian O’Keefe to be our Realtor.

His helpful tips, feedback and negotiation skills were extremely beneficial in the sale of our home. Brian worked closely with us every step of the way and tirelessly provided personalized attention to every potential buyer! Brian continuously kept us informed and sold our home in a timely fashion. Thank you Brian!”

Pauline & Kenneth Y.

"Aaron Pyman was very helpful to us during our recent property sale.

We had many questions that arose, if he didn't know the answer he would find out the answer and get back to us in a timely manner. He also was very diligent in making sure I had the correct paper work signed and scanned back to him, I appreciated the reminders. Nicely mannered and positive individual to work with."
