“I was trying to sell my house myself on Craig’s List…I decided to meet with Barry…thanks to his negotiating skills my house sold within 1 week:   97% of the asking price, and an extra $3,000 in my pocket!”

“I was trying to sell my house myself on Craig’s List by myself and had it priced incorrectly.  Barry contacted me and sent me some free valuable information.  I decided to meet with him.  Barry made a compelling case, based on strong evidence of the marketplace, as to what the correct price should be (if I really wanted to get it sold). “

“Within 1 week my home sold within 97% of the asking price!  Thanks to Barry’s negotiating skills, I got an extra $3,000 in my pocket; more than I ever expected!”

Christopher G. Bryant

Quincy, MA


“Barry negotiated a low ball offer up to 96% of my asking price, within 68 days!  $5,000 more than I was willing to take in a slow, soft Seller’s market!”

“I purchased my 2 family home from Barry Rabinovitz about 10 years ago and was extremely impressed.  10 years later, I was having a new home built and I had to sell my present home. I knew I could trust Barry and his team at Classic Homes Real Estate to sell my home quickly and for top dollar, despite soft Seller market conditions.”

“Classic Homes stands by their unique performance guarantees, which attracts lots of buyers.”

“I got offers, some of them low-ball.  Barry negotiated on my behalf, brought one of those low ball offers up to 96% of my asking price within 68 days!  ($5,000 more than I was willing to take!)”

“Absolutely the most professional real estate agent I’ve ever dealt with.”

Dorothy and I wish to thank you and commend you for your efforts on our behalf in selling our property. We appreciate your professionalism from the first step of properly establishing market value for maximum return as well as using your creativity to increase the saleability to potential buyers. Barry you not only delivered what you promised as far as advertising but exceeded itresulting in a very quick sale to a qualified buyer. Probably what Dorothy and I appreciated most was your attention to details throughout the marketing process resulting in a smooth closing. Another important service was your personal timely updates.

Dear Barry,

Donna and I would like to thank you for all the help that you have given us in the purchase of our new home. The dedication to finding us the perfect home is something that you do not see all the time. We feel that we would have given up many times if it were not for your encouragement that we would find the right home for us. The number of days and nights that you worked with us was incredible. Amazingly enough you found us the perfect home. There is nothing that we can put into words that would describe your never ending commitment to finding the right home for our family. We would also like to thank everyone in your office. They made us feel right at home and gave us encouragement throughout the entire time we were looking. I would be proud to recommend your Real Estate Agency to anyone that I know who is looking for a house or apartment.

 Dear Lillian,

 I am writing to commend you on the level of service that you provided me in connection with my purchase of Unit 305W at Granite Lofts. Please feel free to share this with any of your existing or potential clients. I think it would be helpful for them tQ know how much you helped me in this process. As you know I am a family law and probate litigation attorney at Burns Levinson LLP in Boston. As a service provider myself a few things in particular about the service you provided me stand out and I believe they are worthy of mention. First at a very basic level you were always on time for our appointments. You were always willing to return to various properties after our initial visit so I wouldnt feel rushed into making the important decision of extending an offer to purchase a particular property. I never felt like you engaged in a hard¬sell and instead you seemed sincerely interested in finding me a place that was right for me. In the process you made me feel very comfortable and I quickly considered you my broker and a friend. From start to finish due to the manner in which you treated me I felt very comfortable sharing things about my personal life with you and I believe that this helped you match particular properties to my particular needs. For example I expressed concerns about my being a father with two children who live with me on a part-time basis and you helped me envision various living conditions and gave me the ability to properly plan for my very first independent home purchase and my childrens part-time residence with me in the future. After I made my purchase you were very helpful in getting my particular property ready for occupancy. Once I moved in and when I needed referrals for work that I wanted to do on my loft you became a valuable source of information. I appreciate this and everything else that you did for me and accordingly I would highly recommend you to any other potential home buyers with whom you may work in the future. Thanks for your help in my fmding the home ofm.JWet_

Very Truly, Yours Jeffrey A. Soilson
 




Dear Lillian,

 We have finally settled down into our new home and are enjoying it quite a bit Thinking about future projects around the house decorating etc ... its all very exciting We wanted to take this opportunity to send you a big Thank you. As you remember this whole home¬purchasing experience was quite stressful for us. Not only did you help find the right home that was a match for us but you also helped so much throughout the actual purchasing process... From helping us to negotiate our offer with the seller to surprising us with the tst floor painting concession from calling the bank contacts to make sure the paperwork would be complete on time for our closing to lending a patient ear for moral support... At every step you wanted us to make certain that we had thought out our decisions fully. We never felt that you were pushing us to making a quick decision that was not in our best interests. Your help made this stressful time so much more pleasant and manageable. Aside from our home purchase and the business side of our interaction we also appreciate our new¬found friendship with you. We really hope that we will continue to stay in touch which hopefully will be easy since we are practically neighbors

All the best, Nancy and Orner

$40,000 OVER ASKING PRICE!

Barry Rabinovitz of Classic Homes is certainly a dedicated, experienced & knowledgeable Broker for any Seller, Buyer, (or for both) to represent you!! After having helped my Mom rent out our 2 Family home in Quincy to good tenants for many years, it was time for us to sell. He used his real estate sales experience and marketing expertise to get us a great qualified buyer in just a few days! The best thing about it was that he got us nearly $40,000 OVER ASKING PRICE! We also had Barry find a great home to purchase and negotiated it for us as our Buyer's Broker. Again, despite difficult situations, he demonstrated patience, knowledge, and understanding throughout the process. We had a wonderful professional experience with Barry! I certainly recommend him to any Seller or Buyer looking for a Broker to represent them in the selling or purchasing of any home because he has the patience, knowledge, experience, and dedication to go the extra mile and help them achieve their real estate goals!

Another 5 Star Review on Zillow from our client to Angela Ponte.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"We put my condo on the market and three days later we had three offers at full price- one was a cash offer. I accepted that one and we closed at the end of the month. I had never sold a house or condo before and Angela was a great asset. She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate market and I would recommend her highly."

"Barry helped me and my family buy the right home despite all kinds of obstacles in our way."

Hiring Barry Rabinovitz of Classic Homes to represent you as a Buyer’s Broker is the only way to go! He helped me and my family buy the right home despite all kinds of obstacles in our way. When we met, we were immediately impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, and experience, as well as his kind and down-to-earth attitude in working with us. The market at the time was a total Seller’s market and houses were selling very fast and way over asking price. We kept getting beat on our offers by other buyers despite always going way over full price. Barry was even presenting our offers with personal letters to the Sellers, trying to convince them to consider our offer first and give us a better chance. Well it finally worked and we had our offer accepted! Due to a special situation, we needed a lender that could get us a unique financing program and Barry came through with a bank that would do it. Later on, the bank’s appraiser wanted to limit the appraised value of the home despite all the many improvements to the home. Well Barry went to battle for us with both that appraisal company as well as the bank and in the end, we were able to go forward and close on our future family home! Great job Barry! I certainly recommend you to any buyer looking for a Buyer’s Broker to represent them because you have the knowledge, experience, and dedication to go the extra mile for them and get them their perfect home!

Barry's experience and guidance took a lot of stress off of us buying a new condo

Barry's experience and guidance took a lot of stress off of us buying a
new condo. He was with us every step of the way starting with his
negotiation skills of the purchase price, making sure the P&S was in order,
and asking pertinent questions at the home inspection. Barry insisted on
clarification on an condo documentation item. He made us feel confident in
buying a home and we highly recommend him.
