What Past Clients Have Said
Kelly & Andrew
I initially found her and my Charlesgate rental property through Craigslist, called her, got an incredibly detailed and helpful description of the place (I lived in Dallas at the time), put in an application, and had the application accepted within 12 hours. She happily showed the property to my parents a few weeks later when they were visiting Boston.
I moved a few weeks after that and all was great with my apartment. But then a tragedy struck, the building I lived in caught fire (Mass ave on February 1, 2014). I called Meredith that night (probably at 11 or even midnight, I was so frazzled...) and she happily answered despite how late it was and was searching for a new rental for us that night.
She was so dedicated to finding us a new property within our very specific price range in Back Bay or Beacon Hill and that would take our THREE dog that we were able to sign a new lease within 5 days of the fire. However, through no fault of Meredith's, that lease fell through and we decided to buy a place instead.
She worked as our buyer's agent and quickly found us numerous places and gave us honest advice about how to weigh the pros and cons of each place, which was such priceless advice given that we were first time home buyers in a city that we had only lived in for 2 months. With Meredith's help, we ultimately found an incredible condo that we could live in with our 3 (huge) dogs.
My fiancé and I couldn't be happier with her and Charlesgate and we certainly won't be working with any other realtor during our tenure in Boston.
Having moved sixteen times in our married lives, we are no strangers to the benefit of working with a good realtor, especially in this day and age when there is so much information online that you may think you know all you need to about a property. What a good realtor can do is not so much bring a particular house to your attention, although this is helpful as well, but give you the nuanced information you can get only from someone with a deep understanding of the area.
Meredith Kiep is one such realtor! We worked with her on our recent move from the ‘burbs into Boston, finding her exceptional knowledge of the city and its various neighborhoods a great benefit as we determined which areas best met the lifestyle we wanted. Meredith would meet with us for showing after showing, always with high energy and enthusiasm that we were on the right path and with each house we did not select, we learned more about what we were looking for in a property, street or neighborhood. She has the right balance of being informative but not pushy, knowing when to advise and when we needed space to think. Meredith was (and still is) readily available to answer questions, research an issue, or provide feedback.
We cannot recommend her highly enough. If you are planning a move to or within Boston, call Meredith now!
Meredith was nothing short of amazing! Her knowledge of the Boston area and trends in the local market made shopping for a new home so much less stressful. I knew I was in good hands with Meredith.
She was always available and worked to coordinate with all of the people involved in my home purchase to make the process as streamline as possible. She helped my find the perfect new home that fit all my needs. When I look to sell or buy again, Meredith Kiep will be the first person I call!
I contacted Meredith when was hoping to buy my first home in Boston. Though I’m from the area, I was overwhelmed when I attempted to navigate the process myself. Meredith was extremely patient in listening as I described what I wanted and answering all my questions. She showed me properties in the neighborhoods I’d requested but also had suggestions for other areas I wouldn’t have thought about - I was really impressed by how well she knows the Boston area.
Even though I know this wasn’t the case, she made me feel like I was her only client because of how much attention she paid to me and how much time she spent making sure I would end up in a home I loved. I will definitely refer her to any friends who are looking to buy in Boston and will use her if I ever have real estate needs in the future
Meredith was a complete pleasure to work with from the first time we talked until I was settled into my new place. She was friendly, responsive and helpful throughout the process, and continued to be so well after her job was done.
I am impressed with how she goes above and beyond to appease the difficult and often stressful moments in a move. I spoke with a number of brokers when moving to Boston and after my experience with Meredith if I plan on moving again she will be my only call.
I could not have asked for a friendlier or more dedicated real estate agent than Meredith. Moving to Boston, I was a bit overwhelmed by the price range and trying to find the neighborhood that best fit my lifestyle. She was patient with me and helped talk me through the different positives and negatives of various options.
After helping me find the condo I wanted to buy, she walked me through the entire process and had flowers to hand me at closing! I really appreciated her friendly attitude and professional nature!"
