You made the overwhelming process so smooth and easy for a first time buyer
Greg, I want to express my gratitude for all your help in my home search and purchase in Somerville. You made the overwhelming process so smooth and easy for a first time buyer. Your professionalism and understanding of all my needs and all your efforts and patients were beyond all expectations. Thanks.
Loving my Lowell condo!
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that I’m loving my Lowell condo! The place is great, and my commute to work is amazing now. I have already put the Home Depot gift certificate to good use, though fortunately I haven’t needed to do anything major. (It turns out that they used three different shades of beige/tan paint in the house, though! It was a small adventure to match everything correctly when I was touching up the paint.) Thanks again for all your help along the way — I definitely would have gone insane without it!
Having Greg as our agent was a privilege
Having Greg as our agent was a privilege. His extensive knowledge of sales and marketing showed his expertise and professionalism. He made every effort possible in the sale of our home. He kept in touch at all times and was always available by phone when needed. I would not hesitate to recommend Greg. He goes above and beyond. Thanks!
Greg has been amazing
My husband and I are in the market for our first home. Greg was recommended by a family friend and he has been amazing. He really understands our needs and is extremely knowledgeable. This is supposed to be one of the most stressful life events and he has made it a relaxing experience so far.
You will not be disappointed
We would recommend Greg as a Realtor, hands down, without a question. My partner and I had been looking to buy a house for 8 months with another Realtor before we found Greg. We looked and looked, every weekend, but could not find anything to meet our price, comfort and wants. We then met with Greg, and three weeks later we had found the house we had been searching for. Greg went to bat for us, talked to the owners of the house we wanted to buy and came up with an agreement that met both of our needs. He never pressured us or made us feel like we had to make any decision sooner than we were ready to. We recommend Greg to ANYONE looking to buy a house or condo. He listened to what we wanted, stayed true to our price range and always helped answer questions when we were unsure. He was there from start to finish, watching out to make sure everything went as it was supposed to. We were never concerned about him getting back to us or responding to our emails…he was always there and responding in a timely manner…just amazing!!! He knows Boston and the surrounding cities extremely well. He takes his time with you and treats you like you are his only client every time you interact with him. We searched and searched for a Realtor and if we can make it easy on you, just choose Greg. You will not be disappointed. It makes us want to buy another house just because we had such a pleasurable experience with Greg!
Thank you for being so patient and helfpul
Thanks for being so patient and helpful in buying our condo. We appreciate your honesty and input in the selection process and your constant communication with us throughout the entire process! We wish you continued success in building your business! When we are in the market to sell and/or buy, we’ll be calling you! Client Satisfaction: A+
Always clear, direct, focused and with endless energy
Despite the fact that Greg had come highly recommended to me through a friend, I was a little nervous and unsure of what was going to transpire. When I bought my home 22 years ago, I was young and naive. I may be older now but I am still no expert in the field of real estate. I was in the market for a condominium for my daughter. I needed a place where she not only would be safe, but also would not have to deal with high maintenance and/or endless repair. Greg understood immediately. I put my trust in his hands and he did not steer me wrong. During the whole process of searching, inspecting, negotiating, Greg was by my side, supportive when I needed and tough when I needed. No matter how small my questions or concerns were, Greg never made me feel funny about asking. He was always clear, direct, focused and with endless energy. He has the personality that makes everybody, both sides of the bargaining table, like and respect him. A year and a half later, my daughter is well settled, safe and comfortable in her home. She and I know that we can call Greg anytime, which we have done, and he will always find the time to call back right away…and find the answer to any of our questions. It has never been a case of out-of-sight, out-of-mind. He’s in it for the long run…and he’ll make it fun!
Would highly recommend giving Greg a call
When I started working with Greg, I was amazed not only by his professionalism and knowledge of the market, but how fast he returned my phone calls & emails. He helped me market and sell my first condo, but he also assisted me in buying my second condo. Whether you are looking for a Buyer Agent or someone to sell your home, I would highly recommend giving Greg a call. Thanks again and I will be calling you in the furture when I need a Realtor!
Greg has amazing energy
Greg has amazing energy. He is always connected and extremely responsive. He understands your requirements and doesn’t waste your time by showing you houses you will not like. Very patient with first time home buyers, not pushy and points out objectively positives and negatives about a house. Greg also has a great team to make sure the process moves smoothly from the point of offer to closing. My husband and I had a very un-stressful experience buying our first home and we strongly recommend Greg.
Greg went above and beyond
Greg went above and beyond on several occasions to find a property and walk us through the entire process. Greg always worked with our difficult schedules and never wasted our time by showings us properties that did not meet our criteria. He was also very prompt at returning phone calls and communicated all information to us very clearly.
Nothing but praise for him
Purchasing a home seemed like a scary process, especially for a first time buyer! I expected the process to be stressful and intimidating. Greg’s careful explanations and endless patience made it to be a successful journey. It was of great relief to know that Greg handled all the details. Once he got us started on the process of finding a home, we expected to spend a considerable amount of time looking at homes that were nothing like we had in mind. Greg listened to us very carefully, every home that we looked at, he carefully screened and told us about both the positives and negatives. Greg was also very organized, being there for all our questions, answering all of the phone calls and returning the ones missed, promptly. We truly believe that without Greg’s professionalism and knowledge, we would still be looking! I have nothing but praise for his him and intend to recommend him!
I feel Greg DiGiorgio should be nominated for Realtor of the Year!
I feel Greg DiGiorgio should be nominated Realtor of the Year! We tried to sell our condo last year with a different realtor and didn’t even get one offer, after several months of open houses and personal viewing. We had found a new home we loved and could not move until we sold our condo. We were so disappointed. I met Greg at an open house, he left such a good impression we used him to sell our condo this past summer, and helped us to find our dream home at the same time. He actually sold our condo at the First open house, and we got asking price at that! Other realtors had said we would never get that much. He knows the market, people, and how to sell. His skill with photography and video for our listing was amazing, and I think it’s due to that we sold so quickly. While doing this and helping other clients he took us out looking for a new home until we found what we wanted. He made a very stressful time transition seamlessly. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. His high energy, motivation and dedication is unparallel to any realtor I have met. We thank him for his hard work, because without it our family’s dream may not have come true. He is definitely the person you want on your side.
Grateful to have worked with Greg
Greg DiGiorgio is a dedicated and trustworthy real estate agent. I made my first real estate purchase in November 2007, a 2-bedroom condo in the South End. The process would have been a nightmare without Greg. The Greater Boston real estate market is mired by unprofessionalism and dishonesty. A first time buyer in Boston needs someone who knows the ropes and can be relied upon. Greg offers both these attributes. Over the course of two months, Greg and I visited 30+ condos. His patience was unwavering throughout this time. Greg treated each visit with the expectation I was walking into my next home…grilling selling brokers on every detail while making sure I was taking key criteria under consideration. I had a trusted advisor in Greg. Equally as noteworthy is Greg’s focus on client service. The man is not afraid of leg-work and dedicates tremendous time and resources to his clients. For example, Greg spent an entire afternoon on my behalf at some State bureau to determine the scope of approvals I would need to build a roof deck on a prospective unit I was considering. However, that favor doesn’t even compare to the help he provided me AFTER I had closed on my condo purchase and decided to renovate my kitchen. Besides offering invaluable advice on everything from design to process management, Greg saved me real money by negotiating great prices with general contractors and kitchen vendors he knew. I’m grateful to have worked with Greg and am thrilled with the outcome of my first endeavor into real estate.
Would definitely recommend Greg
We have been in our new home for a little over a month, and my husband just said for the hundredth time, “I love living here.” We worked with Greg for nearly a year. When we were first researching purchasing our first home in the Boston area, we came out on a scouting mission and met Greg based on Yelp reviews. We were coming from 3000 miles away and from the first meeting, we felt like we had found the right resource for us. Greg works with a lot of first-time buyers and let us know that he would help lead us through the process, he was personable and I immediately felt like not only was he knowledgeable, but he was a guy we would like to “hang out” with and ride out the search for our home with. Greg always responded to any questions immediately. He kept his energy for our search up even when it took months and months. He helped us to refocus when weeks of trips to Open Houses on our own had left us feeling lost and depressed about ever finding a home. He endured a day of showings with me and my mom when my husband wasn’t available to attend–no small task! He introduced us to new neighborhoods and added perspective on possibilities for homes when we couldn’t see them. He made great suggestions on visualizing remodels that we could do without making every home feel like a construction project. Through it all, he kept us smiling and we felt like he really wanted us to find a great home. When we found the right condo, Greg worked quickly and seamlessly to get our offer completed and accepted. We were amazed how quickly things came together. He helped us to set up the Inspection and lawyer and worked to make sure the process was easy and comfortable for us. When we brought in our own mortgage person, he rolled with it and added her to his team. When we moved in, Greg worked on a “Watertown Restaurants Guide” so we knew all the great places to try. Overall, I would definitely recommend Greg to anyone. He was responsive, really listened to our needs, and we always felt like he was committed to help us get in our first home.
Would highly recommend him to buyers and sellers
Not only did Greg help me to get the most for my condo, he also helped me find, negotiate and buy the perfect city condo I had been looking for – even when it was outside of his home territory. He consistently gave me sound and honest advice, and helped me to hang in there and sell successfully, especially when the market slowed unexpectedly. Greg’s marketing skills and use of technology (virtual tour, etc.) maximized my condo’s exposure and selling price, and ultimately ensured that both deals came together perfectly. I would highly recommend him to both buyers and sellers.
We definitely plan to call Greg again when we decide to move in the future
My wife and I met with Greg after seeing a Yelp post praising his services as a buyers agent. From the beginning, he was very enthusiastic and respectful (not pushy). At our first meeting, he described his experience with real estate. We talked about what to look for in a house, our specific needs, areas that would give us what we wanted for the amount we wanted to pay, etc. The conversation went on for probably an hour after which our brains were pretty full. He left us with an account on RE/MAX’s web service that would let us browse houses as they came on the market and also allowed us to request a showing with him on any house(s) we wanted to see. This was in November (2010), so by then the number of houses on the market had dwindled. We were mainly interested in living in Arlington, but we checked out a few houses in Lexington as well. We don’t own a car so Greg happily drove us around to view the houses we were interested in. Here’s where Greg’s experience in real estate really shines though. He’d take a look at the outside of the house first, pointing out the good and bad about the roof and exterior. Then he’d take us around inside and do the same for the electric system, heating system, and windows, as well as any lesser (in terms of cost to update/repair) items. Gradually, and through on-the-spot quizzing by Greg 😉 , we picked up our own sense for what to look for in a house. After maybe three excursions with Greg, we independently went to a day of open houses, and with our new found knowledge one of the houses caught our eye. Though the decor was very outdated, the house had many aspects we wanted, and the “bones” (as Greg taught us) were good. We called Greg and within the days we had another viewing. Greg gave the house a good look over with us and spent time with us after to talk about the pros and cons to the house. He did a great job of giving us an objective view, and in the days in which we were deciding whether or not to put in an offer he even did some research through the town to see if we would be able to put on the addition and dormer that would eventually make this our dream home. Needless we say, we put in an offer, and with some knowledgeable bargaining Greg helped us buy our house at a price that made us happy. Through the buying process, we decided to go with Greg’s “team” (inspector, mortgage broker, lawyer, etc). He told us it would make the process run smoother b/c he had worked with them all in the past and had a good relationship with them. We did follow-up with an outside mortgage broker to compare the loans that Greg’s broker was offering with outside options. We decided that they were both offering basically the same loans so we went with Greg’s broker based on his recommendation. We were not disappointed, the process was fairly smooth, and we were able to close on our house at the end of January, a scant two and a half months after we had met with Greg for the first time. And, two months later, we really love our house! We’re gradually coming to end of the much-needed updating (pulling down wallpaper, painting, pulling up the wall-to-wall carpet to reveal the beautiful hardwood floors underneath, etc). Looking back at the buying process with Greg, choosing him as our buyer’s agent was a great decision! Buying a house for the first time was stressful even with help so its hard to imagine what it would have been like without him. I recommended his services to a co-worker and at the moment they are closing on a house they found in Waltham. We definitely plan to call Greg again when we decide to move in the future!
Incredibly lucky enough to find a Realtor who puts 'full-service' into practice
We moved to Boston from over 2000 miles away, not knowing anyone but Greg. We didn’t know which suburbs would work for our commutes, where we would fit in, or what to expect for house prices. In one epic week-long visit, Greg showed us six distinct areas of the greater Boston area – from Natick to Malden to West Roxbury and back. We found a house we love on a street that has welcomed us in like family. We’re a short walk from our daughter’s preschool and 125 steps to a great park. In short, Greg found us a home. Since we were coming from so far away, we had to do a closing in absentia. Greg took care of all of the little details: inspection, repairs, closing, you name it, all without us being in the same time zone. We literally could not have made this move if we hadn’t been INCREDIBLY lucky enough to find a realtor who puts “full-service” into practice. I would be happy to gush even more over the phone if you need a more personal reference – my cell is 214-476-6628.
I wish I could afford a second house, so I could work with him again!
Greg was great. Before my husband and I met Greg, we thought we could find a home without a buyer’s agent. We actually looked on our own for a year. But whenever we found a place we liked, by the time we would ask to see it, it would already be off the market! (Housing slump? What slump? Not around these parts, people!) I was getting depressed. Then we had a meeting with Greg, and within weeks of working with him, we closed on a house. Greg’s a good guy and a hard worker. It was nice working with someone close to our age (30-35). Greg was always plugged in, and he responded to emails and phone calls immediately. (I mean, IMMEDIATELY. In a flash.) Greg was no nonsense and high energy. He also seemed to know a lot about construction and home improvement and was always able to point out the pros and cons of each place we visited. He was worthy of our trust, and he’s definitely worthy of these 5 little stars. I wish I could afford a second house, so I could work with him again! He made the process fun. How did I find Greg? Yelp.
