Client Testimonials

“Chuck impressed my wife and I from the start. We started by selling our condo with him and then buying a house. Without even officially signing with Chuck, he did a complete walkthrough and recommendations on how to improve the house for an open house. He sat with us for 2 hours discussing our selling strategy and what we wanted for our next house. From the large things like negotiating final and best rounds to the small things like providing access for a plumber while we were traveling, Chuck and his team were top notch and provided a level of service that constantly impressed us. We don’t plan to ever use another real estate agent again.”

"Chuck Silverston represented me as the sellers agent. I was eager to sell my condo in Cambridge and I had no idea what the market would command in terms of price and interest. Chuck told me that there was a lot interest in Cambridge and that he predicted that I would most likely get my asking price and more. Not only that, he expected that there would be a lot of interest even over the 4th of July weekend. He made some recommendations regarding the staging of my condo which I followed. Within a week he had a photographer come in who did an amazing job and put together a rather impressive set of photos. The same day day the photos were done the condo went on the market. Chuck told me there was a lot of interest and that he expected a good turnout for the open house. Over one hundred people came to the open house. Within two days of the open house I had 9 offers. I got significantly more than my asking price. Chuck was amazing handling these negotiations and offered excellent comments regarding the pros and cons of the offers. Chuck also helped me with a roommate issue and gave me excellent advice all the way. He also works with an equally worthy group of lawyers and this facilitated the entire process. I supremely recommend Chuck Silverston as a realtor for his communication skills, knowledge of the market and the real estate industry as well as his professionalism. Besides that, he is really a nice guy to work with and is very responsive to all forms of communication.”

“Simply put, I could not be happier with the job Chuck and his team did for me and my family. They made what is a extremely stressful situation easy. I always felt like I had a partner in the process. No matter how annoying my questions may have been, Chuck would take the time to go over everything that was taking place. I always knew what the next step was going to be, how we were going to get to our final goal, and I always felt comfortable with what was taking place. There was a plan in place that was executed to the letter. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend using Chuck.”

“We only ever had used a listing agent twice during our homeownership and the two experiences stand in stark contrast to one another. Our first experience was not without merit but in the market that we sold in the service did not stand-out as remarkable or requiring much effort. Our second sale, using Chuck, was a case-study in what a great broker can really do for you if things aren’t exactly simple or smooth.

First, his initial presentation to us was comprehensive and a serious analysis of our market while also being a realistic means to manage our expectations. We felt there would not be any surprises on his end and the personal documentation he provided up-front made us feel well-informed and supported by his team.

Second, his communication and availability is AAA+. I can’t think of a more important characteristic I would desire in someone engineering the biggest transaction of our lives. I felt comfortable calling or emailing the second I had a question or concern and if he wasn’t picking-up the line he got back to me in a timely manner. I simply can’t say that about most client oriented service I experience.

Third, when things got a little stressful with the various pitfalls that these kinds of deals present from time to time Chuck was there to explain and defuse any and all of our concerns. He was an ice cold rock without seeming impersonal or detached.

Finally, he has surrounded himself with an experienced support personnel that covered all our needs ranging from managing town inspections down to financial administration. I was fairly well-prepared for our sale and ready to move quickly and as a result of a smooth and well-thought process his team did not miss a beat. They all managed to educate us in some way- even for the next time we are buyers.

In Brookline and Newton I just can’t see myself wanting to list with any other broker and I easily imagine he’s great as a buyer’s broker too.”

“It really was fun and rewarding, meeting you on Saturday. We enjoyed ourselves while we worked, which is a credit to your preparation and your comfortable personality. Thank you for that.”

“Pat and I also wanted to thank you for all of your assistance during the purchasing process. You really went above and beyond to always return our calls promptly, answer our questions, and help out in any way you could.” (Chuck Silverston also represented the seller in this transaction)

“Chuck made a very strong first impression. Chuck was personable without being overwhelming. I like the way chuck organized a team of very competent agents in the RE transaction: from assistants to mortgage lenders, to RE attorneys. This saved my wife and me a lot of time and trouble. If we were to find lenders and RE attorneys by ourselves, we would have probably missed the closing deadline.”

“I couldn’t have found this place without Chuck’s assistance – his knowledge of the market and the way that he negotiated to get me the best price.”

“I was impressed with the amount of time Chuck took with the initial questions and answers to get to know me. He made me feel like he cared about every small detail.”

“We were very happy with Chuck’s professional knowledge of the market and continued efforts to strategize with us about different options during a difficult sale.”

"My wife & I used Chuck Silverston and his team for the sale of our Brookline, MA condo, and we do not regret the choice. He is personable and has an extensive knowledge of the Brookline RE scene and a good sense of property values. We liked the carefully thought out schedule of activities leading up to the showing of the condo. We also appreciated the quick response we got to our inquiries from Chuck and his excellent assistant Kaitlin. I know Chuck handles many properties of greater value than ours, but I never felt we were getting a second class treatment, despite the busy spring RE market. Chuck also set us up with a good RE lawyer to handle the legal aspects. We were also impressed by Chuck's negotiating skill in the final deliberations leading to our choice of buyer. Indeed the entire undertaking of selling our condo turned out to be smooth sailing thanks to Chuck and his team.”
