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 me 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 is a diamond in the rough!! I bought my first house with her- and whatever your situation or goals, I’d highly recommend that you choose her to work with. Meredith has years of housing industry experience, shows dedication, is organized, and such an effective communicator (both with you and others involved). If you’re organized, you will definitely appreciate the level of detail she goes into through all phases of the transaction (if you’re not, you will surely benefit from it)! Meredith met with me early on to understand my goals and layout the process for me. She helped connect me with a mortgage lender to get pre-approval going, and helped me with searching for open houses and properties to go see. While visiting properties she offered up her industry experience by calling out things to think about regarding resale value, how I might best use the space, or things to consider that I wouldn’t have thought of, myself. Throughout the offer, sale, and closing she kept me and the numerous other parties on the same page, was always timely and positive, fought for and protected my best interests, coached and encouraged me, and ensured a smooth transition during a very big ‘life change’ moment. If you want an exceptional player on your team that has the knowledge and personality to make your next purchase/sale a glowing success – go with Meredith, or you’re doing it wrong!
