“I have dealt with many real estate agents over the years, and Rebecca Riopelle is one of the best. Rebecca assisted me in selling my mother’s home in the Boston area. Rebecca was so helpful in every step of the process — from effectively dealing with the tenants in the house, to staging the home, and to aggressively marketing the property. Rebecca made valuable recommendations to puff-up the home, many of which I readily accepted and which proved vital to the sale of the house. I also used the contractors that Rebecca recommended, and they were all top notch. I live in California, so all of our communications were conducted long distance. Luckily for me, Rebecca’s communication skills are excellent. Rebecca was very proactive in communicating with me, and she promptly returned my e-mails and telephone calls. Also, luckily for me, Rebecca went the extra mile of coordinating the repair work and making the house available to the contractors. During the sale, Rebecca was instrumental in helping me understand the process of selling real property in Massachusetts and in advising me of the current market conditions. Rebecca’s experience, professionalism, and constant communication proved vital to the successful sale of the house. I would strongly recommend Rebecca as an agent for buying and/or selling property in the Boston area.”

“I had a whirlwind & smooth experience with Rebecca. She was **extremely responsive, which was significant because an offer had already been put on the place I wanted and the owner was about to make a decision. We squeezed in a look at the place literally 6 hours before the deadline. I could tell it was a perfect for me, but was a little uncertain about whether to jump for it or not, since I had just started looking at places. But, it was a good deal and a good situation. Rebecca didn’t put any pressure one way or another, just gave me solid info. I decided to go for it. She hooked me up with a local bank to get a pre-approved mortgage and we did all the paperwork for putting in the offer in a matter of a couple of hours. Later that night, my offer was accepted. The owners wanted to close on a fairly aggressive timeline. Rebecca made everything from the time of my offer being accepted to the closing go really smoothly. I have an extremely busy work schedule, so it was absolutely a godsend that she took care of all of the grunt work, communications with other parties including listing agent, my lawyer, and loan officer, and more. She recommended good people. The loan office she recommended was able to give me the lowest loan rate of several I checked out. I like to take informed but very direct and efficient decisions and actions. Rebecca completely facilitated my ability to do that in this whole process (but I also got the feeling that she is good at accommodating different personalities and styles of going through the home-buying process). Anyway, with her perfect help and timing, I have a really wonderful, cute little condo in Cambridge that is absolutely exactly what I needed and wanted. I really, really appreciate what she did for me.”

“From the first time we inquired with Rebecca about a house for which she was the listing agent, we were impressed by how knowledgeable she was about the housing market and real estate best practices. She immediately gave us advice about lenders who were preferred in the area, giving us an advantage when we were ready to make an offer on a house. We also liked her warmth and friendliness; we felt comfortable with her from the beginning, and knew that she would be the right buyer’s agent for us. As first time home buyers we were overwhelmed by the many steps involved in the process. Rebecca patiently guided us through each of these steps, responding to endless emails, talking with us on the phone, and meeting with us in person on many occasions. She understood how daunting the process could be for first-timers and never made us feel like we were asking too many questions or being overly anxious. She educated us about the language of real estate transactions and the nuances of negotiating for a property, but never pushed her point of view on us and made us feel empowered as the key decision-makers. Throughout the search process, she helped us think through the benefits and challenges of various properties, towns and neighborhoods, reminding us of the needs and desires we had informed her of when we started our search…”

“Rebecca was my seller’s agent for my Cambridge condo sale. I highly recommend Rebecca’s services!. She was professional, caring, thorough, highly responsive and made you feel that your business is special and valued and that your preferences were important. I was especially impressed with her taking photos, doing staging and spot painting of some areas of my condo on her own without any extra charge and did so beautifully. After the first weekend of an open house, I got an offer above my asking price; I give most of that credit to Rebecca.”

“Rebecca Riopelle is simply amazing. She walked us through the most stressful times in our life in the most supportive and effective way. There was never pressure to sell before we were ready. When we were ready to go, she was there in a heartbeat and was more helpful than I could have ever imagined… We got EIGHT offers on our condo, one of them $35,000 over asking price! THEN, when we went to purchase our house, she came with me to countless showings. I remember going to open houses and overhearing other prospective buyers lamenting the fact that their realtors never came to showings with them and feeling so fortunate the Rebecca was in our lives. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and have come out of this process with a dear friend. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for what she has done for my whole family.”
