|web Massachusetts Real Estate News & Opinion by Claudette Millette|
After entering the real estate profession in 1992, I wanted to find a way to work with buyers and to be able to offer a high level of service and representation to them at the same time. I made the decision to become a professional buyer broker. Over the years, my commitment to my business, my clients and to superior service has remained the same. And because of this, I am pleased to say that a great deal of my business comes from repeat buyers and personal referrals. First-time home buyers need someone who is patient and caring and I strive to keep these qualities on the front burner at all times. Testimonial of a first-time home buyer client Move-up and luxury buyers - Many of my clients have returned to me over and over again and it has been my pleasure to help them in their transition phase from selling their current home to buying a new one. I also have extensive experience in the purchase of luxury homes in Newton, Lexington, Shrewsbury,Southborough, Sudbury, Hopkinton, Natick, Wayland, Walpole and Westborough. Testimonial of a move-up buyer New Construction Homes - Purchasing new construction requires different skills and experience than buying an existing home. I have helped numerous buyers in their purchase of new construction and in so have covered every aspect of a new home transaction from negotiating on price and upgrades to a structural final inspection which I consider to be an important part of the process. Testimonial of a new construction client Relocation Clients - Relocating buyers from different parts of the world has been an important part of my business. I use, not only extensive photography of potential homes, but also video. Testimonial of a relocation client. Through my exclusive buyer brokerage, I am able to offer a high level of market and negotiating expertise on any residential purchase which enables me to get the best possible deal for my clients.
