Jamaica Plain single family

John Maxfield’s work on the sale of my house was extraordinary. I called him on a Wednesday afternoon, just before leaving for a 10 day trip out of the country. He came to my house immediately that evening for a preliminary conversation, returned with contracts later that night, and arranged to have my house photographed and posted within three days. The open house was the Sunday before I returned from my trip abroad, and by Monday I had eight offers on the house. I followed John’s advice and set a pricing window for the house instead of asking a specific price, and it worked! After some negotiations, I accepted an offer for $38,000 over the asking price.

I am a school leader and work long hours in a stressful job, and so everything about the sale of my house and the subsequent move was a challenge for me. John was there at every step of the way, helping out when there were details I couldn’t manage, and making sure that everything was done in a timely fashion. At every point in the process, I felt that he advocated for me, anticipated challenges that might arise, and offered me compassionate support.

John was smart, savvy and compassionate. He made what is for many sellers a stressful and discouraging experience, especially in this financial market, a pleasant rite of passage and one that turned out extremely well for me in a financial sense. I really cannot recommend him highly enough.
