Torey and I worked together for many months before she had an accepted offer on a perfect first investment property. We had a great time throughout the process, and her review of the experience made my day!

“Working with Lizzy was such a wonderful experience! She was referred to me by coworkers that had worked with her previously and she was everything (and more!) they promised she would be. As a first time home buyer, Lizzy listened to what I was looking for in a property, drove me around to see condos that fit my needs, and always sent me listings of interest. She never pressured me to buy anything and assured me the right property would come along after two unaccepted offers. And boy did it! I highly recommend Lizzy — she is a consummate professional who really knows her stuff! She was a dream to work with from start to finish.”

Somerville Closing

Torey bought a great two bed/one bath condo with parking in Somerville– the first in her investment portfolio. I’m excited for this vibrant, wonderful young woman! What a great way to wrap things up before the holiday!!

Considering a multi?

Davis Square

I lived with friends in the top two floors of this two-family house on Simpson Avenue in Davis Square, Somerville in 1994. The rent was $250 a month per person– inconceivable in today’s market! I enjoyed the experience so much, I considered buying a multi-family home of my own. The upsides were obvious: rental income and flexible living space (in other words, I could reclaim parts of the rental unit over time if I needed to). Plus, down the road if I decided to move on to a single family home, I would have a strong investment in place for the long haul. Truth is, the ROI (return on investment) is different with each multi family depending upon the condition of the property, what improvements you choose to make, how strong the rental market is (ours is strong), and how long you will hold the property. Though many of the two and three-family houses in nearby markets have been bought and converted to condos, I can help you find one of the really great ones still to be had.
