About

I'm your typical MIT-trained intellectual - but I also happen to be a top producing real estate broker that has a proven track record of results for my many clients that continue to refer their friends and family. I started in the business as a real estate investor myself. Having the mindset of an investor helps me understand the viewpoint of my clients as home owners, investors, and developers. My engineering background is what I use to determine what works and how to build what works - it's an ethos I live by. Along with my finance and legal backgrounds, they help me balance efficiency, reliable outcomes, return on investment, value, performance, and all with a calculated margin of safety to fully protect those around me.

I've closed hundreds of purchase and sale transactions over the past several years - everything from the lows, to the peaks of the market, and the rebound that we're currently in. This means that I've experienced just about every issue that one could ever expect in a transaction - and how to head it off before it becomes a real or bigger issue. Of course, as with Life, issues will "evolve", and my goals are to try to discover them as best and early as possible, to protect both my buyers and sellers - don't get me wrong, there will still be bumps along the road, but my goal is mitigate and minimize them for you.

What Clients Are Saying

Mac was there when I bought this home 3 years ago and he remembered everything about my house and me which helped us to sell it better.

Deliliah G - Waltham buyer and seller

We highly recommend Mac. He knows the market street by street, he always had useful insights to share about the places that we visited, e.g., whether the asking price is right or what the chances are of the value going up or down in the future. He has an eye for all the small details and was able to give us accurate estimates on how much it would cost to repair or replace something. He is always very responsive by email or text message; he always replies within a few hours or at most a day. Once we found a house that we like, he walked us through all the paperwork and everything was painless. We highly recommend working with him!

Sylvain & PuiYin P - Boston/JP buyer

After having worked with the other realtors for a while, we made the decision to list our Somerville home with Mac, due to his vast knowledge and experience of working within the Boston area. He never let us down, was completely professional in every aspect of the transaction, and, most importantly, He got the job done! He is an amazing agent and we could not have been happier in making our decision to work with him. We would recommend him without hesitation, and we will be using his services again in the future. 

Tom N - Somerville seller

Mac recently helped me purchase an amazing condo in downtown Boston. It was one of the BRA deed-restricted units so obviously there was a lot more paperwork and headaches involved, but Mac helped guide me through them. We'd been slowly searching for a condo in downtown Boston but obviously they are very hard to find and very pricey, so this BRA unit was perfect. Mac was very patient throughout our search but when the time came to ramp things up, he got everything together very quickly and efficiently. It was also super convenient to be able to sign all the documents online so I didn't need to make an extra trip into the city. The closing was a long process, but that was more due to the bank and the BRA deed restrictions. All in all, I would absolutely recommend Mac whether you're gradually getting into the market and exploring or want to purchase ASAP.

Josh C - Downtown Boston buyer

Mac is the best. I would use no one else. I would also recommend him to anyone.

Ken M - Boston/Cambridge investor

Prompt, professional service, yet cordial and personable. Paid attention to details. Coordinated and managed all aspects of buying process very well. Very accommodating and flexible. Kudos!

Adam & Judy R - Newton relocation

Mac was very responsive and prompt. He went to bat for me and helped make sure I got a great deal! He made my first time home buying process smooth, painless, and very positive!

Shea D - Boston buyer

We had to trust Mac 100% with our condo sale as we are out-of-state owners. He listed the property with a price point that we thought was a little too low but with the intention to attract more buyers. He was absolutely right, and the final closing price was higher than what we were hoping to get after negotiating through multiple offers over asking. Mac is super responsive to questions and was very thorough with his follow thru with us as sellers. This is our second time working with Mac as he was our purchasing agent for the same property. When it came time to sell 10 years laters, the only person I trusted to handle that for us from 900 miles away was Mac.

Karl & Steph S - Boston Buyer and Seller

I worked with Mac on buying a condo in Brookline. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, which made the buying process much easier. Mac also helped me with several investment ideas by sharing his time and expertise. I would definitely recommend Mac to anyone who is looking to buy or sell the property.

Nelly K - Brookline buyer

Mac is not your typical agent. Having bought two homes from him, I can attest that Mac provides attentive and timely client service like no other. On top of great customer service, he is also an investment professional who is used to the various demands from investor buyers. Mac makes the otherwise grueling process easy!

Tom W - Cambridge and Boston investor

This property is the third we have bought. This transaction went very smootly and is nothing to compare to our previous experience with real estate agent. We're delighted to have dealt with Mac and we're extremely happy we choose him . We'll absolutely use him again and will not hesitate to refer him based on our superb exerience with him.

Marie & John F - Boston buyer

Mac was my seller's agent for a Back Bay condo. During all our interactions (meetings, phone calls, and emails), he was always professional and friendly. He was knowledgeable about the selling process and was able to guide me through it given that it was my first time selling a condo. He submitted my condo online and prepared all the necessary information including taking great pictures of my place. Then he showed my property through both open houses and individual appointments to make sure that it got the maximum exposure. My apartment was on the market for only two weeks and was sold! Through out the process, he kept me in the loop and updated me real time. I was very satisfied at the end. It was a great and happy experience working with Mac!

Mindy T - Boston Back Bay seller

It was a pleasure to work with Mac and we would highly recommend him to our friends and family. My husband and I have worked with other realtors over the years selling homes in various states and never experienced the professionalism and honesty we felt when working with Mac. He exceeded all our expectations for a realtor and couldn’t be happier in our decision to work with him. Mac’s service was outstanding; he kept us informed throughout the whole process making the selling and closing completely trouble-free!

Mary & George C - Boston seller

Mac is fabulous! Very knowledgeable and great to work with. Definitely had my best interest at heart and found me an amazing new home!!!

Quynh T - Downtown Boston buyer and seller

I feel like I really lucked out with Mac. He is incredibly responsive and helpful, and he just really knows what he's doing. This was my first purchase, and my search ran 5 months with 3 offers. My experience with Mac was consistently positive throughout the whole process. He is knowledgable about a wide range of neighborhoods in Boston. His approach is consultative and not overbearing. I relied on his advice and guidance a lot, but he was careful not to tell me what to do. I highly recommend Mac and have already done so with family & friends and I will definitely work with him again for my next purchase.

Evan O - Boston/JP buyer

We used Mac to buy our condo nine years ago and then again recently to buy a house. We liked his relaxed, cheerful manner, and his prompt communication. We bought an as-is sale and were concerned about its condition but also didn't want to lose it. Mac kept us on the right track, kept us from possibly overbidding and kept us from giving up too much in the negotiations. Thanks Mac! We'll invite you to the housewarming (several months from now).

Bob & Kris D - Boston/JP buyer and seller

I used Mac's services twice in the last three years. He has been instrumental in successful closing of both transactions. He has been very knowledgeable from constructing creative bidding alternatives until the deals were closed. He also goes over and beyond what you ask for during the process. He is highly recommended.

Murat O - Somerville investor

Mac is a family member so it was an obvious choice for me to use him when my mom's home after her passing needed to be sold. It was an emotional time for me and my family but Mac was so understanding and compassionate and helpful. His advice and expertise was invaluable. The open house was very successful and tons of folks viewed the home. House sold that weekend and I'm sure there were lots of questions for him to answer. He was very thoughtful in keeping me involved in the whole process and answered all of my questions promptly and courteously. I would certainly use him again for any real estate needs in the future. He's a great resource!! The buyers were also impressed with him and his knowledge. a+ service.

Priscilla C - Seller

Mac was great. We worked with him in '07 when we were buying a 2 bedroom condo for our son who was attending college in Boston. We was on top of all the new listings and available properties. We purchased and owned this condo for 9 years during that time we had period contact from Mac to update us on the local market and things in and around Boston. He always stayed in touch. We again reach out to Mac when it was time to sell the property. He developed our strategic approach, pricing, and managed the process getting us 3 offers. Our 2 bedroom condo ending selling a little over asking which was tremendous. I would highly recommend anyone buying or selling a property in the north end or other Boston neighborhoods to talk to Mac.

Robert K - Boston buyer and seller

It was a real pleasure to work with Mac. Besides being extremely knowledgeable, he responds immediately to questions, needs and is expert at solving problems. He really is a person you would want to have as a friend. I will recommend Mac to anyone and everyone I know who needs help with a real estate transaction. I find him to be trustworthy, dependable and if I could give him a rating of more than five stars I would.
