Having rented some places in Cambridge through this Re/Max office in the past, I figured they may be able to assist in my search for a property to purchase in the city of Cambridge. The realtor I had dealt with in the past had moved on, so pretty much based solely on the recommendation of Jennifer N.(below) I contacted Marius Gallitano (gallitano.com). If I could, I’d send Jennifer N. a bottle of champagne cause working with Marius as my buyer agent was exactly what I hoped for when looking for a realtor.
Being a first time buyer, I had little knowledge of the process for purchasing property. The first thing Marius did was give me a crash course in real estate and he was very thorough in answering every question/concern I could dream up. More importantly, he was very reassuring that what appeared to be an overwhelming process, wasn’t actually that bad at all.
Immediately after giving Marius an idea of the type of place I wanted and in the areas I was looking in, he took full control of the buying process. That day I had a list of properties in my email to review and days later we were out looking at places that he felt were a good fit for what I looking for. With every place we saw, Marius quickly gained a perspective for what I did and did not like in a property. He used this knowledge to fine tuned the condos we visited and fairly quickly I found a place I liked and began the bidding process.
To say the least, Marius made the journey from initial bid to P&S to closing extremely easy for me and was consistently on the ball with addressing anything and everything that came up throughout the buying process. Not once did I feel he wasn’t fulling his responsibilities. Even after I closed on my property a month or so ago, Marius has continuously remained in contact with me to ensure anything that may have came up was addressed according.
The bottom line is, Marius is great at what he does and is super easy to work with. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend working with him if you’re looking for property in the Boston area.
