From 10 minutes after I first e-mailed Alyssa Spear O'Grady (that's how quickly she got back to me!) to the final walk through and beyond, Alyssa was an absolutely wonderful agent to work with. Not only is she kind and friendly (an added bonus in a sometimes competitive field!), but she's incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and professional. When I first started looking to buy, I was using a different agent service, and I never felt like a priority or that my offers were being constructed to win out in such a highly competitive market. When I switched to working with Alyssa, the approach she took and the personal attention she gave were a complete 180 from where I was before. Alyssa knew the ins and outs of the local Boston market, helping me think about everything I needed to consider, the pros and cons of different offer contingencies, and ultimately how to construct an offer that was competitive, but that I was also comfortable with. Ultimately, I got my offer accepted on a wonderful condo that I'm almost certain I wouldn't have won without her expertise and assistance. In addition, Alyssa's has a wide network of people in the business that she works with often and who all respect her greatly. She was therefore able to refer me to so many helpful people that I worked with throughout the offer, financing, inspecting, and closing process. This is a testament to her knowledge, her experience, and how pleasant it is for everyone, from all sides, to work with her. Without a doubt, I would recommend Alyssa to anyone looking to buy a home!
