‚ÄčWe worked with Eric to sell our condo and purchase a new home.  He was a pleasure to work with throughout the entirety of both processes.  He is so friendly, knowledgeable, and communicative.  He was always easy to reach, and very proactive. 

Our sale experience was fantastic --  In summary, we had an offer immediately after our first and only open house for a price that fell right in our target range!
The story:  When we decided to sell our condo, we met with several realtors and chose Eric because of his knowledge of our local market and his commitment to work hard to sell our home.  He also provided great references from sellers and buyers.  Eric helped determine the best price to list our home using comparables and features of our condo (he came to visit our home in person).  We talked about timing of the listing (based on his knowledge of the local market in Allston/Brighton), and he gave us a list of suggestions to prepare the place for an open house/photos.  One of these suggestions was to meet with a stager who gave us an initial consultation and list of items to remove, furniture to rearrange, etc.  We followed all of his suggestions (none of the suggestions were expensive or difficult), and, within hours of our first open house, we had an offer!  Eric negotiated with the buyer and helped us reach a price that we were very happy with.  In our particular case, our first offer fell through, but Eric had a great backup offer for us within hours.
 
Throughout the entire sale process, Eric was extremely responsive-- he would answer calls and emails at all hours of the day and provided us with constant communication about where we were in the sale process, what our buyer's agent was communicating to him, etc.  Any time we had concerns or questions, he would address them immediately!  When the buyer or anyone related to our sale needed access to our home, Eric always made sure that it was at a time/day that accomodated our strange schedules and he was ALWAYS there with them.
 
Our purchase experience with Eric was also great.  Once we had accepted the offer on our condo, we began the process of looking for a new home.  Eric was again very responsive-- if we were interested in seeing a place, he would set up an appointment immediately!  He was very helpful during the showings-- he would point out features that we really thought were neat, and would also point out items that we might find to be problematic.  Eric also was great at giving us privacy and time to discuss the places we were seeing. He was never pushy!
 
In our situation, we saw several homes more than once, and placed offers on quite a few places.  In each case, Eric put the offer together very quickly, provided us with suggestions on how to much to offer based on comparables, and worked very hard to negotiate in a such a hot market.  We eventually found a place that was perfect for us, and Eric helped us through the entire purchase process.  We purchased new construction (which has its own complications) and had to meet with the builder many times.  Eric was there with us for every step. 
 
We ended up closing on our sale and our purchase on the same day so that we could avoid moving more than once.  Eric was with us in every step along the way.  We are so happy in our new home now, and we owe much of that to Eric.  When the time comes again that we have to move (although we love this house so much that it's hard to contemplate moving), we will definitely go to Eric first!

We met Eric through a close friend who highly recommended him.  We had a very positive experience throughout our home sale process.  He worked around our schedules and was very thorough at the initial meeting so that the remainder of the process went smoothly.  He secured us an offer more quickly than we could have imagined, but encouraged us not to sell our home short.  We got what we had hoped for our home, even in a less-than-ideal market.  We have wholeheartedly recommended him to our friends!

"Rich Rana"

 

Mr. Eric Glassoff worked as my seller's agent on the sale of my condominium at Longwood Towers. He is thoughtful, thorough and trustworthy and puts the interest of his client first. We had multiple offers within a few days of our home being on the market and this is a testament to Eric's capabilities as a broker. We appreciate his personal touch and we are grateful he was our agent!

"Ashwini Lakshmanan"

 

  

Eric is a top-notch real estate agent who was always there to assist and guide me throughout the entire home buying process. As a first-time home buyer, I appreciated Eric's patience and guidance in leading me every step of the way. Eric is a dedicated professional and I was exceptionally satisfied with his knowledge of the market, his high level of expertise, and his dependability and honesty. Eric was always available to answer all questions and his input was smart and savvy. He communicated in a timely fashion with prompt responses to calls and emails which made the process smooth and efficient. He understands that finding the right home is a big decision. Beyond the real estate transaction, Eric cares about his clients on a human level and is warm and friendly. He is such a personable realtor that I often felt as if I were his only client! I cannot begin to adequately express my gratitude and praise for Eric and would recommend him without hesitation to anyone wishing to sell or buy property. It was a genuine pleasure to work with Eric.

I have recently purchased my first condo unit, and I'm so happy I did. One key person who helped me effectively navigate through the process is my realtor, Eric Glassoff of Coldwell Banker.  Eric truly sets an example of what an excellent and knowledgeable realtor should be. Not only does he handle each step with care and experience, but Eric truly strikes an intricate balance of handling the various situations professionally while simultaneously being friendly and reaching to the client on a comforting personal level. He does not presume to know what the client should be seeking, keeps his personal preferences aside unless asked to render any of them, tailors the strong case he makes to suit his client's needs, remains sensitive to his client's needs, capabilities, budget, and overall situation.  He indeed recruits his vast set of skills in the field to align with the client's objectives, and his skills together with his confidence work synergistically towards ultimately achieving or finding what the client is looking for. He carefully keeps the client well informed of the significance of each step during the process, the rationale behind the existence of each step as it becomes relevant, the ramifications of taking each step, the opportunity cost of favoring and making one choice over another during the process, all the while keeping friendly and ceaselessly "being there". These were all crucial for me, as I was a first-time buyer. You would get a smooth, pleasant, and constructive experience working with Eric. He picks up the phone whenever you call, or promptly returns your missed calls, and will genuinely answer all your questions without ever trivializing any of your concerns. He does understand how to build a constructive and fruitful relationship with his client, and in the end of the process "gets the job done in the best fashion".   Overall, Eric is an excellent and reliable realtor who has mastered the process from start to finish, and who is able to produce the best outcome for you. Based on my successful experience with him, I can attest to all these solid traits, and I would highly recommended working with him.

We wanted to write to voice our appreciation for Eric Glassoff’s efforts to help us find and purchase our recent Brookline home.  Eric worked with us for many months looking at properties before we finally found one that worked for us.  We found him always good-natured, extremely responsive, flexible, and highly capable.  As soon as we identified properties we wanted to see, Eric had appointments set up for us to see them (given the competitive pace of the Brookline housing market, this was essential).  We made a few offers on places before we found the “right one” and Eric played a major role in helping us navigate the offer process with individual sellers.  We always felt like we had good guidance and this helped us gain confidence in our own ability to pick the right place for us.  When we finally found our current home, Eric again played a major role in helping us negotiate a favorable offer price with the seller, and then continued to play an enormous role throughout the entire process right up until closing.  Even the day before closing, when the seller’s broker noted a small oil leak in the basement, Eric was there to call the oil company, get it fixed, and negotiate for the seller to pay for it, avoiding one last issue that could have affected our closing.  

We really do feel that we could not have successfully obtained this home without him.  We will strongly recommend him to our friends looking for properties in the area.  Thanks,

"Nira Pollock and Rick Ruberg" Brookline, MA

 

My wife and I were second time home buyers in the Brookline area. Our first
experience a few years ago was less than stellar so we were skeptical about realtors in general.  Eric came highly recommended from a coworker, so we gave him a try.  We were very picky about the properties we saw but Eric was patient and attentive regardless.  He was able to find us a house that wasn't even on the market.  Later I heard from my neighbor, a developer that flips houses, that he would have paid more, therefore making Eric more money, but Eric had refused, saying he had a responsibility to his client.  
Before working with Eric, I didn't even think realtors were necessary.  After watching Eric work, I really understand what a realtor can be.  He's hard working, attentive, and loyal, everything you want.  I will be recommending him to everyone thinking of buying anywhere near Brookline.

"JaZahn Clevenger"

 

I was a first time home buyer looking a place in Brookline, and Newton area for a quite well, and tiredly had worked with several agents in 2008-2009.  I decided to find a place myself, and it happened that I found that sales agent Eric Glassoff had lots of the hot units in Brookline for sale.  So why not work with him as buyer agent then?After I started to work with him, I was so impressed with his professional knowledge, ability to educate clients, working efficiency, honesty, loyalty, and the capability to make a deal happen in the best interest of his client.  After I looked at 2-3 properties, I happily bought a dream home at Newton.  I strongly recommend Eric to any home buyers, as his excellence in business as well as his loyalty to his clients will bring you satisfaction in purchasing your dream home. 

"Susan Zhang"

 

My wife and I worked with Eric to buy our condo in Brookline.  He was recommended by a friend who had also recently purchased a condo in Brookline. We were moving to Boston from outside the region and were on a very tight timetable.   I spoke with Eric and let him know what we were looking for, and he was able to quickly arrange a full day of visits to condos that were exactly the type we were looking to buy.  He did a great job of keeping us on track, and adjusting when our focus changed slightly.  I thought he did a wonderful job of walking the fine line between being assertive and offering his professional opinion, but without being too pushy or brash.  When the time comes for our next  move, I will certainly look to Eric to help sell this condo and look for our next home. 

"Kent Mouw"

 

My wife and I were first time homebuyers, nervous about the scale of the purchase and the complexities of navigating through the Boston housing market.  Eric had great recommendations, was very professional, friendly, responsive, and engaging throughout the whole process.  Eric made the experience rather easy and exciting as we bought our first home, and we have kept in touch ever since.  He has been our first choice for all our real estate related work, and we gladly recommend him.

When I and my wife were looking for a condo in Brookline, we had very specific requirements in choosing a realtor. Unlike many other people, we really did not like our realtor to look for potential properties for us. We preferred to monitor the market ourselves, and wanted to only contact Eric when we needed to get additional information about the condo that we liked, or if we wanted to see the particular property. Eric immediately adapted to our style. Sometimes, we did not call him for weeks, waiting for the condo that suited our needs to appear on the market. But when that finally happened,  we  called Eric. He immediately tuned himself into our game plan, promptly providing us with all the requested information. That helped us a lot when we found a home of our dream - with Eric's help, we were able to get all the information about the condo, schedule an appointment to see it and make the offer on the same day that it appeared on the market! After our offer was accepted, Eric helped us to take the stress out of preparation for the closing of the most important deal in our lives. In a professional and knowledgeable manner,  he guided us through all the necessary steps and made us feel that everything was under control. I would definitely recommend Eric to anybody who is looking for a property in Brookline".

"Anyone who has you for a Realtor knows just how fun, knowledgeable, tenacious, you are, and it's a pleasure to have you there when buying/selling such a huge investment!"

"Rebecca Corkin"

 

My wife and I had barely a weekend to fly in and look for a new home, and we thought there would be no way we would find a home before we  left. That was before Eric worked his magic. He gave us great insights  that helped our online search before we got to town, but once we arrived, he not only gave us a great introduction to Brookline, he helped us find the place that fit our needs, and were able to make an offer before the weekend was out. It didn't stop there. Although we were thousands of miles away, he helped us navigate the rest of the process and avoid all kinds of unnecessary hassles. We would recommend Eric with enthusiasm and without hesitation.

"Todd Curtis"

 

"Thanks to Eric I accepted a great bid on my Brookline condo within a month.  He is a   down to earth hard working guy who works with you to get results. I would definitely recommend him for your real estate needs."

"Lennie Kleinberg"

 

"We've worked with Eric for the purchase of two properties -- and his professionalism, market knowledge and guidance just can't be beat.  With his support and insight, we were able to get exactly what we wanted both times....and I am confident we will look to him again for our next transaction. "Eric was the only real estate broker that truly understood our needs, and made us feel 100% comfortable. He educated us on the process, negotiated on our behalf, and acquired the property we wanted....all in the timeframe we needed. We couldn't be happier."  "If you are looking for a savvy yet thorough real estate professional, Eric Glasoff should be at the top of your list.  His experience, contacts and intuition are what every buyer or seller needs."

"Alison & Dan S."

 

Eric's enthusiasm and tirelessness were a great help in buying our
Brookline condo.  He knew the right questions to press the sellers on,
was responsive to our particular needs, and was tireless in tracking
down answers.  He's a tremendous source of information on the market
generally, and if we ever decide to sell or buy again (though he
helped us find such a great place I don't see it happening too soon),
we look forward to working with him again!

"Kate & Matt Garvey", Brookline
 
 

“Eric was our buyer’s agent when we purchased our home in Newton. He worked with us for months to help us find a property that matched our needs and requirements and helped us greatly during negotiation and closing. He is very professional, friendly and easy to work with. His experience and knowledge of the market enabled us to find and purchase a home that is perfect for our needs.” –

"Bojan Rip"

 

My partner and I were first time home buyers. Eric was recommended by a
friend who had worked with him on selling his condo a few years ago. Eric
listened to what we were looking for and found us the condo of our dreams.
We had a few issues with negotiations and Eric saw them through with
professionalism and support. I would recommend him over and over again and
will most definitely use him if we decide to sell in the future.

"Kevin & Dan"

 

Having worked with other brokers in the past, it became quickly apparent that Eric possesses the skills of an outstanding broker. He is knowledgeable in his field, and is professional in dealing with his clients. I found him to be direct, yet warm. He shows up on time, is organized, returns calls promptly, and gives an honest opinion on any given property - all things that are requirements for a great broker. I recommend Eric highly and without reservation!

"Nancy Nitenson"

 

My husband and I were first time buyers when we met Eric Glassoff. We thought we could find properties to look at on our own and go through the process of a purchase on our own. Boy were we wrong! Thank G-d the seller had Eric as his realtor. Even though he wasn't our realtor he made the process so much easier. He sincerely wanted to help us find what was right for us regardless of selling the property to whoever came first. He wanted both sides to be happy.
All questions and information we needed we received promptly and everything went smoothly. Now, even years later he still keeps in contact to make sure we are happy with the purchase. Choosing Eric as your realtor will be the best decision you will ever make!
