My experience with Dan was outstanding. He is extremely hard-working and dedicated and helped me through the entire process of selling my condo in Brighton. Dan is very knowledgeable about the area and always makes sure you are happy and informed with the process and the results of any deal. Dan was there from the beginning, even before the house was listed for sale. He used his long list of extremely dependable contacts to suggest painters, interior designers, and later a lawyer when closing the deal. He is extremely reliable as are the people he put me in contact with. Dan always kept me up to date on any potential buyers and held very successful open houses which resulted in the sale of my condo. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
To prospective real estate buyers or sellers in the Boston area, My wife and I used Dan Demeo?s services for both, buying a new home in Needham, and selling our condo in Cambridge. Through both processes Dan?s service and guidance exceeded expectation toward achieving our goals. On the buying side, Dan was very thorough and attentive to our needs. We screened many homes through his website and visited many homes as well. Dan?s exceptional responsiveness gave us an advantage of being the first to see homes, and his flexibility enabled us to see homes after hours or on lunch breaks. With experience in home construction and renovation Dan also helped evaluate the feasibility and cost of renovations for prospective homes. His persistence and positive attitude lead us to a home we were very excited to place an offer on. Dan kept a level-head, using his knowledge of the market and his negotiation skills to reach an accepted offer nearly 5% under asking price. Once accepted, Dan advised us through the home inspection, legal process, and financing to ensure the terms of agreement and closing date were met. We utilized Dan?s strong network to select a lawyer and mortgage broker who also delivered responsive high quality service. After our experience buying a new home with Dan, we trusted him to represent our interests in the sale of our Cambridge condo. Once placed in his hands, Dan did not disappoint. He explained his sales philosophies and also walked us through his strategies on pricing and showings. In an aggressive timeframe Dan set up professional pictures, brochures, and a dedicated condo website to ensure it was on the market in time for prime fall season. His efforts lead to a lot of interested foot traffic resulting in an offer that he negotiated very close to our asking price. In addition to obtaining the right price, Dan ensured that the buyers were solid financially and committed to the purchase. Much to our satisfaction, Dan?s marketing and sales negotiation efforts resulted in successful closing of our condo. In our experience, Dan not only facilitated our home purchase and condo sale, but he has also been a friend who has followed through to ensure our happiness. Besides his extensive real-estate knowledge, high energy, and strong negotiation skills, Dan is a good person who genuinely wants to represent the interests and aspirations of his clients. We feel it is important to tell our experience working with Dan Demeo so prospective clients can have the same confidence we did when placing a home transaction in his hands. We thank Dan, value his business and friendship, and gladly refer him whenever an opportunity arises. Less ... More

Dan has been a friend and my real estate broker for 10 years. He has sold 3 properties for me. Dan is exceptional at setting a fair market price for the buyer and seller, resulting in a quick sale . All 3 properties were sold at the first open house. His extensive list of customers will attract many to view your property. Dan has a gift to close the deal. I highly recommend Dan Demeo to anyone to be your real estate broker. He produces.

Helped me buy home
We had a chance meeting with Dan way back in Sep/Oct 2004. Since then he has helped us purchase 3 properties in Newton, Wayland, and Watertown. We have found Dan to be very helpful. Some of the areas, we found him to be helpful was: a. He understands the client's requirements and acts as a facilitator. Home buying is very stressful and he doesn't add to the stress. b. He grew up in Newton and knows the area very well. Combining this with many years of experience as a realtor, his expertise is very important. We have lived in the Boston area from 2000 and had rented apartments in Somerville and Framingham. But when we were ready to purchase our house, the areas we were considering were Allston, Brighton, Newton, Watertown, and Belmont. We had zero knowledge of these areas and Dan really helped us. c. Dan has owned and rented many multi-family units. Since we were looking to purchase a multi-family, his knowledge was very helpful. He also referred many contractors and handymen to us over the last few years. d. I have referred him to my friends in the past and all of them found him to be a pleasure to work with. Less ... More

Dan Demeo is knowledgeable, creative and detail oriented. He came to us with a fresh approach to the sale and ultimate purchase of a new home. In our first meeting he came armed with a detailed plan to sell our house, information about pricing in the area, and examples of his marketing campaign. He brought a fresh understanding of the market and a whole lot of patience as we searched for our new home. His persistence led to the purchase of a house that had not a single renovation since it was built in 1976. With his vision, team of contractors, strict timeline, and advice we turned a once small cramped home into the perfect dream home for our family. He is an absolute pleasure to work with not only because he knows his craft, but because he's just an over all great guy! I would hands down recommend Dan and have already. Less ... More

Dan provided great counsel to us in preparing our property for sale, timing the listing, pricing, and finishing the transaction. He did a thorough presentation of the comparable units to help us set a price. He recommended a terrific floor guy to install a hardwood floor that made a huge difference in marketability. He handled a number of details we would normally have handled and needed help with. We got a little lucky - a buyer appeared within a few days of our listing the property. Dan advised us in the negotiations (by phone, he was out of town on a family trip), and helped us reach an agreement and handle several rounds of buyer requests. In short, we achieved our price objectives several months faster than we were expecting and we felt than Dan managed the process thoroughly. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
We met Dan through a friend who recommended his help due to his knowledge of that area. Dan was great to work with for many reasons, including his ability to provide insight into numerous nuances that buying a house entails. This was especially helpful for us as first-time homebuyers. Dan grew up in Newton and has lived in the area his entire life, so his familiarity with the specific schools, local area, community etc. are incredible. However, the biggest compliment I can give Dan is that he referred almost all of the folks I used not only to buy the home, but to renovate it. I used his mortgage broker and she was not only offered the most competitive rates (I called 7 other brokers) but was very consultative throughout. I used his lawyer, who again not only saved me money, but who I also recommended to many friends who have passed his name on as well after working with him. I did extensive work to the house and literally every single person I hired (floors, ceiling, plaster, buit-in custom furniture, electrician, plumbers, etc) were referred to me by Dan. I can't stress enough that I still compared their rates/experience/capabilities against all of the other folks I found on my own and his referrals saved me many thousands of dollars. Dan himself has worked on many homes, so his knowledge of the best folks to hire at the best rates is very unique to realtors. Bottom line, I can virtually guarantee if you are doing work to the house, Dan will be a huge asset in this process and can save you substantial costs. To top it off, I went on vacation with my family for the three weeks while the work was being done, and guess who came by my home every day to check on the project and even make runs to Home Depot? My realtor, Dan Demeo. I couldn't recommend someone more and I'd be happy to speak to anyone considering his services. Less ... More
