Ryan P.

Michael L.
"Mark is one of the most timely and responsive individuals I have ever met! CMRE was very excellent!"

Richard K.
"Giovanna showed great knowledge and response to customers. She was excellent; couldn't have been more responsive! Giovanna is an asset to your team!"

Erika G. and Jimmy E.
"Susan was amazing throughout the whole house buying process... and believe me it can be a process. She was on top of things 24/7 and we couldn't be more grateful for that. Now we have the perfect house to raise our family in. I highly recommend her to anyone serious about purchasing a home she won't let you down!"

Phil and Yvonne H.
"Thank you SO much Susan for your diligent and exemplary service in helping us close the loan. We appreciate your follow thru, your resourcefulness, and your attention to detail. This deal required a considerable amount of communication and coordination on almost a daily basis and you certainly were up to the task. Thank you again and it was a pleasure working with you."

Marco and Gloria C.
"Excellent service. Prompt , very professional, patient. Always answers all the questions you have and is very patient. Most importantly she was aware of the location and property that we were looking for, making the home searching a total pleasure. We (my wife and myself) will highly recommend Susan, whoever gets her as an agent will get a true professional."

Joe and Brandy S.
"Our experience with Susan was hands down excellent. My wife and I are first time buyers and had little knowledge of the house buying process going into this. Susan was wonderful at realizing what parts of the process we needed a little more assistance with, without us even having to ask. We knew the town we wanted to buy in and Susan had knowledge of the that area to include additional listing then what we had found on-line. Overall, we could not be more pleased with Susan as our realtor. I would recommend her to friends, family, and anyone else and would gladly use her as my realtor again, except I'm really happy with the house I just bought!"

Carlos B.
"Words can't describe it. Susan has been helping since the start of this journey, on top of everything to make sure everything went well, plus explaining every single detail that I didn't understand! If you are looking to buy a house Susan is the one to call! "

"The real estate process was a lot easier than I expected, considering I lived 65 miles away from my purchased property! My agent was very helpful and responsive and CMRE is professional and efficient!"

Yanitza and Jose M.
"Mark was excellent! People help you buy and sell homes to make a living and that is fact. But when they do it in such a manner that you feel as if you are working with a friend and not an agent, they have been truly successful. Mark was amazing!"

"Jim was very good and made the process easy for me! "

"I have worked with other agents and Jim is by far the best. He is at the top of his game! Great energy, knowledge...Jim obviously loves his job and is willing to go the extra mile! I am very grateful for the honesty and integrity of my agent and hope that other employees/agents there hold themselves to the same caliber! "

Dan P.
"Mark was attentive and easy going. He was great and really made my first time less stressful!"

Matthew F.

Buying a house is in no way easy but my agent brought plenty of humor and positive aura to a relatively stressful process!"

She drove to all the house I emailed and and took notes of the houses and neighborhoods. After we closed and got our keys; she drove around the neighborhood showing us around which took all day.

After the closing we stood in the parking lot and she shared her paint color swatches with me, helping to pick out colors for my new condo. She definitely goes above and beyond for her clients."

"You have been wonderful throughout our house buying process! Thank you for hanging in there with us. Your thoughtfulness on closing day was also appreciated. Thanks again Adrienne, you have been great!"

Past client
"Thank you for providing us the new, vital information we needed to not purchase a house we had originally liked. The construction of another home on the lot next door reduced the value of the property to us, since the construction was so close. Thank you so much for protecting our interests and helping us through this process. "

"You are GREAT!!! You have provided more information than any other realtor I have worked with. I really appreciate it. You are AWESOME!"

"A few weeks have passed since the closing, and I'd like to take this opportunity to share with you how truly grateful I am to the staff at Central Mass Real Estate.

The dedication I encountered from everyone at Central Mass Real Estate was astounding. I have referred two friends to Jim, and hope to refer more, as I'm certain their experience will be equally as positive as mine.

During a hopeless time in my life, when it seemed I had exhausted all of my options, Central Mass Real Estate provided more than a service. I've always thought that no one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.

The confidence displayed by CMRE was such a comfort; as was the constant contact with Jim to make sure everything occurred perfectly. He was always available for a phone call, e-mail or text; I never waited longer than seconds for his response."

"Hi Shawn,
Just wanted to thank you once again with your help on the purchase of my first home. With the knowledge I gained from the first time home buyers course that you spoke in, which was very helpful to me in understanding the process and what to expect during the process of buying my first home. The patience and help you gave me with all my questions I had and being able to answer them thoroughly helped put my worries at ease. Showing me that you were looking out for my interest as my agent in helping me make wise decisions in the homes I had looked at. Helping me during the buying process when problems arose and advising me on how and what to do was also greatly appreciated. Your help from the beginning straight thru to the purchase of the house and still to date, your continued support is greatly appreciated. Over all, your honesty and integrity is what I appreciated the most! I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home. Once again, I can't thank you enough. I love my first home! Thanks for helping me find it.

"I really appreciated all your help with the purchase of my new home. Your expertise and professionalism made the whole process smooth and easy. Thanks for answering phone calls, emails and guiding me through all the steps. I can't wait to get everything situated and turn the house into a home! Thank you for everything you have done!"

Jess and Erik
"Shawn helped us sell our house and purchase a new, larger house for our family. We were pleased with how easy the whole process was. Shawn made sure to inform us about all the steps involved and was always there to answer our questions. With this being our second house, we took our time to look at a lot of houses before finding our new house. Shawn was always patient and willing to help us find just the right house. We will always recommend him to anyone who asks about realtors in the area. He was great to work with!"

Ahmed & Susan G
"When we were looking to buy a house, we worked hard everyday researching the internet. When we called agents for more information, they asked if they could be our agent. So did Giovanna. However, that is where the similarity of our experience with other agents and Giovanna ended. Giovanna went far beyond by finding us properties that only fit our interests and our price range. Giovanna found us a house that was a lower price and much higher quality than we would have targeted during our own research. During the closing process, she did her job, our job and the listing agent's job and continues to be a resource to us. We would say that if you are looking to buy property in Fitchburg, Giovanna is not only your agent, she is your advocate.
Ahmed & Susan S."

David and Beth P.
"We immediately felt at ease and confident that Shawn would sell our unusual "geodesic dome" home. We had tried once to sell our home and had given up. Honestly, he was a savior to us. We would have probably had a hard struggle without him. Shawn made us feel at ease and showed a sincere interest in our needs as Sellers."

Walter J.
