Over the last few months I have worked particularly with Olivia Craig.

She was a great agent and really helped to keep the hunt for the right home fun and stress free. Olivia was instrumental in walking me through each stage of the process from finding the right home to closing documentation. I would highly recommend her.

I had the pleasure of working with Ramsay Fretz and his exceptional team at Leading Edge Real Estate.

From start to finish, their expertise and dedication truly impressed me. They navigated the complexities of the market and ensured that my property was priced right, attracted the right buyers and address all the issues that always seem to creep into process of getting the deal done. What stood out the most was their proactive communication and their ability to provide solutions to manage all of the details. They kept me well-informed at every step of the process, promptly addressing any questions or concerns I had. Their attention to the details was invaluable. The experience was made so much less stressful, thanks to their professionalism and a genuine desire to achieve the best possible outcome for me. I couldn't be happier with the results and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to sell, buy or rent a property. If you're seeking a real estate team who goes above and beyond, look no further.

Ramsay was fantastic.

He created a brochure and booklet which included all the facts on my property, an analysis of desirability of the surrounding neighborhood, and a comparative analysis of similar properties that had been recently sold. To say he was thorough is an understatement. He arranged a number of showings and guided me through the offer process. He made it all painless and stress free. I would highly recommend him and his team.

Words cannot describe the amount of intensity, empathy, compassion, and patience demonstrated by Margaret and her team during our home buying journey.

We had a few real estate agent options before we started looking for a home and I am so glad we went with Margaret and her many yrs of experience. Buying a home is work and she is right there with when you when you need her, but also knows when to give you your space. Margaret went above and beyond. example: we wanted to see a house originally outside our original scope, she carpooled with my wife dropped her back off with me at a farm and then had ice cream with my two little boys. They too liked Margaret. We are all going to miss you. Thanks for giving it your all!

Joe Payne

Worked with Olivia for quite a while.

Can say with upmost confidence she was the best option for me. Knows her job like the back of her hand and is very smart. Not to mention she’s kind and pleasant to work with. I would recommend Olivia 100 times over.

Jay Fisher

Margaret is a wealth of knowledge and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Being a first time home buyer, the process is intimidating and overwhelming. Margaret went above and beyond to help us make a decision and played a huge part in our first offer getting accepted (which is crazy in this market). She has sold homes for my partners grandmother and his mother and I would recommend her to anyone! We trust her and her insight deeply and are beyond happy to have picked her as our realtor! Not to mention she seriously is a blast to be around.

Courtney Meskell

As first time home buyers, we depended on Betsy for every part of our process, and she went above and beyond what you’d typically expect.

She made what is a very stressful process enjoyable and fun, I cannot recommend her enough.

Anna E.

Thomas is the best agent out there.

He is extremely knowledgeable and always there for you when you have questions. I'm very fortunate to have his guidance during a tedious and sometimes exhausting journey of hope hunting. He was always objective and tried to provide the best data and knowledge and encouraged me to make the best decision for me and my family. When things didn't go as planned, he was so empathetic and provided alternative plans so I didn't feel lost. I'm the lucky one to have his help finding my ideal new home. I cannot say "thank you" to Thomas enough and he truly has my highest possible level of recommendation!

Xinhua C.

Ramsay helped me with a commercial condo purchase and the whole process could not have gone better!

He was a superb negotiator and was more successful that I had even hoped. He worked really well with the sellers, attorneys and bank and smoothed the process for me immeasurably! Everyone involved told me they were really impressed with his diligence and expertise! Couldn’t recommend him more highly!!

Kristin T.

Tonie Tucker

Ramsay was always available, and took any/all questions.

He is very knowledgeable and accommodating. He ensured I stayed on track with all that needed to be done!

Dan B.

I cannot recommend Ramsay more highly.

As a real estate attorney, I have handled transactions with hundreds of agents. When it came to my own purchase, the decision to work with Ramsay was easy to make. He had already earned my trust by doing amazing work for many friends and clients. And yet, once I became Ramsay's client, I learned the true depth of his knowledge and service. Ramsay made our mission to find a home his personal mission and stopped at nothing to find us the perfect place. He went above any beyond during the entire search - which in Boston could be a little competitive at times - and kept us laughing to whole time. We ended up with a dream home we never expected to get and paid tens of thousands less than we had planned due in large part to Ramsay's negotiating skills. And even still, after an easy closing, Ramsay is guiding us through a renovation with his many contacts. We'd be helpless without him!

Michael B.

Margaret Belmonte did a great job selling our Beverly, MA home.

We're thrilled at the smooth transition at every step of the process. We enjoyed living in our house for over 21 years and we are now glad to turn it over to another family to make their lifelong memories.

Louise Connolly

Betsy is fantastic!

She's vey enthusiastic and goes above and beyond to get the job done!

Jennifer Ashton

As a first time buyer my fiancé and I were very nervous and didn’t even know where to start.

Amy was so patient and honest with us. She helped us through every step. Answered every single question we had and quickly responded no later then an hour. She was looking out for the best interest for us. She knew what we wanted and our budget and she stuck to it. We honestly couldn’t bought our house that checked off every single box and in the town we wanted to be in with out Amy! She made our dream come into a reality!

Emily

Ramsay helped me buy my first home in Boston's South End - he is an outstanding real estate agent with a highly professional demeanor, market expertise, and extensive contacts.

Ramsay was there from start to finish, helping me through every step of the way. He listened to and heard exactly what I wanted, and had my best interests in mind every step of the way. Ramsay also never held back in providing a realistic perspective - he knows the Boston area and its markets extremely well, and has that insider edge! I found myself enjoying every step of the process, thanks to my confidence in his shrewd eye and expertise. I recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to buy in the Boston area!

Lisa B.

Juliet went above and beyond in handling the sale of our home!

Her proactive approach, responsiveness, and knowledge of the market are clearly reflected in her service. It's impressive that she not only facilitated the sale but also managed home improvements and maintenance while we were out of state. Her ability to leverage contacts and provide valuable recommendations demonstrates a strong network and dedication to ensuring the best outcomes for her clients. The fact that she helped negotiate a great price and a quick closing speaks volumes about her expertise. We’re thrilled to have had such a positive experience and would readily recommend her to others seeking an agent.

Michelle Robinson

Ramsay is professional, friendly and gets the job done!

We would not have the amazing house we have now if it wasn't for Ramsay's excellent council and hard work. Thank you!

Alex J.

Betsy Woods was a true professional!

She went above and beyond for us and her work ethic was unmatched. She made our home buying process a breeze and I would highly recommend using her as an agent to anyone out there looking to purchase a home! 2

Sean M.

Ramsay is just the best.

He’s smart, does his homework, and gives you the space to make your own decisions. In our very stressful house hunting journey I always felt supported and listened to. Never once did I feel pressured. I wish we were always buying houses so we could hang out with him all the time!

Drew J.

Thomas and his team were amazing to work with!

We, as first time home buyers didn't know much about buying a house or about any of the formalities. Thomas and his team made it a breeze to work with them. Thomas was always just a call or text away! He is genuine and lets you decide what's best for you. He was always there as a friend making sure we had all the information we needed to make an informed decision. He is very insightful about the properties which we saw and gave his thoughts which we as 1st time buyers would have never thought of. Thank you Thomas and team for helping us get our dream home! We highly recommend Thomas!

Akshay P.

Juliet worked tirelessly on our behalf.

She is extremely thorough! She was also kind, knowledgeable and a delight to work with. As first-time homebuyers she helped us understand every step and took extra time to make sure we weren't confused by the complexities of buying a home. She was extremely available for questions and concerns. We felt so cared for!

Emily Frost

Bought and sold through Betsy, there is no one better on the North Shore!

Matt Williams

Betsy was such a great realtor!

She has such a great personality we wouldn't have sold our house without her. I highly recommend Betsy.

Vito C.

Amy is an outstanding agent, very responsive and went above and beyond to assist us.

She was so patient with us in deciding to sell the house, we cannot thank her enough.

Barbara

We had an exceptional experience with Olivia Craig.

Not only did Olivia demonstrate a high level of professionalism throughout the entire process, she also showed exceptional patience and understanding towards our young children who accompanied us to all the showings and eventually, the closing document signing. Olivia made the home-buying experience less stressful for our family.

Irena Acic

This team made my first time home buying experience SUPER EASY!

!! Would Definitely Recommend! Now the hard part, PACKING!

Jason G

"There are not enough superlatives to describe Tony.

He has helped us find a house on some pretty unique criteria. He is a font of knowledge of all aspects on the purchase/sale, not just the area history but things like new fire code bylaws in our town and contacts for excellent contractors, lawyer, mortgage agent, etc. Tony has just been really fantastic for my family for two generations now. When my kids are old enough I'll be pointing them to Tony too!"

Andrew Murkidjanian

Ramsay was absolutely amazing!

He listed my commercial building and had it under agreement within the first month. He took care of all showings, walk throughs and every detail! During the process of the sale I had some unfortunate and pretty devastating repairs that had to be done to the building…Ramsay to the rescue! He had someone out the next day to give me a quote on the extensive repairs and the job was completed 5 days later. If you want a realtor that will go the extra mile and work hard for you then Ramsay is your guy. He accomplished in 4 months what I couldn’t accomplish in two years. He’s communicative, always answers your call and never leaves you in the dark. You won’t be disappointed if you work with Ramsay!

Lisa T.

My husband and I bought our first home with Ramsay in 2017.

He is wonderful! He knows the market well and provides great insights, guidance, and data to help you along the process. He made our deal happen despite a significant appraisal gap. He effectively re-negotiated with the seller, which is no easy task in the Boston real estate climate. I highly recommend Ramsay to everyone in my life looking for a new home/condo. He's passionate about what he does, and he's good at it. I would give more than 5 stars if it were an option!

Laura V.

"Tony sold our existing home in a few days and expertly guided us through that sale as well as the purchase of our new home.

His professional approach and extensive knowledge of the market gave us confidence every step of the way. Tony is a trusted advisor and we love working with him."

Tina and Jerry Silberman

Nancy did a phenomenal job selling our home for us.

Her marketing skills are spot on and original, she has a gentle but highly successful way of negotiating and her calm was the perfect offset to my crazy. I wasn't surprised, as she came highly recommended. What I was surprised with was her respect and empathy, her kindness and patience, and her genuine care, as my family went through a difficult personal time. She's not just a great realtor but she's an amazing human and that is more valuable than anything.

Lynn

Thank you for everything that you did to help us buy the property!

I feel like we really lucked out when we got Olivia, our real estate agent. I want to take a moment to sing your praises. Again, thank you so much for everything. You went above and beyond.

Jeremy Blomberg

Juliet Jenkins was an absolute game-changer in selling our home.

Her strategic upgrades and masterful staging, all within our budget, showcased our house beautifully. In a tough market, Juliet worked wonders - securing a sale well above our asking price. Her mix of market savvy, staging artistry, and budget mindfulness was the perfect recipe for our success. Juliet's dedication and professionalism shone throughout the process, reassuring us at every step. We're thrilled with the results and highly recommend her to anyone needing a realtor who truly goes the extra mile! Like

Vinay Mandal

We were in the market to buy a house, but did not have a realtor in mind.

Fortunately, our loan officer was able to recommend Ramsay with no hesitations. Ramsay is very knowledgeable and personable as well. He was present and helpful every step of the way, which made house hunting fun and not as stressful. I 100% recommend Ramsay if you’re looking to buy a house, sell a house, or even recommendations to fix a house.

Sapphire N.

Our realtor is amazing.

She provides support without being pushy.

Caryn Ramey Andrews

Betsy was amazing!

I was going through a really difficult time and she helped me find a home for me and my daughters!

Jessica V.

I cannot say enough good things about Ramsay and his entire team.

Selling my childhood home was a difficult but necessary decision and from the minute my sisters and I met Ramsay, we knew he was the best person to entrust this to. Him and his team were there for us every step of the way (shoutout to Glynne!) and handled the sale with kindness and compassion. In addition to being genuinely nice people, they also know their stuff! We were very impressed by the research Ramsay did in preparation for our initial meeting and his understanding of the market and area exceeded our expectations. They were trustworthy, communicative, and overall, just an absolute pleasure to work with.

Jody Y.

Thomas was incredibly responsive and provided honest, substantive feedback on each of the properties we visited.

He was incredibly flexible and was accommodating every step of the way. We came to rely on his opinions, and we valued his insights. Over the course of the several months, he got to know our family and what we were looking for. Sometimes, he know what we liked and silkier before we were able to verbalize it!! We found our dream home with him. We trust him completely.

Tim & Sophia R. - 1st Time Home Buyer Closed Apr '23 - Natick, MA $1.09M - 4 Bed, 3 Bath, 2,300 Sq. Ft. - New Construction

Thomas excels in both the content of his work, and the manner in which he does it.

He is very knowledgeable about the market and the current process of real estate transactions and therefore gives good advice. He does this in an efficient, personable and very effective manner. He flexed to our preferred mode of communication and style effortlessly and without us having to ask. I would highly recommend him as an agent.

Anna O.

Olivia is so wonderful and kind!

She was so helpful in every area and answered all of my questions. I encourage everyone to work with her!

Lindsay Henry

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Margaret Belmonte was to work with.

She came highly recommended to us, and she helped us navigate the process of purchasing a house in Georgetown, MA. It is obvious that she is passionate about her job and making sure her clients feel safe and secure through every aspect of the process. As first-time home buyers, working with Margaret was the best part of the process!

Roxanne Wilson

Juliet was amazing to work with for the sale of my dad's house.

Our house needed a number of upgrades and renovations prior to sale and complicating matters, we live out of state. Juliet oversaw the entire project helping us hire vendors to complete the work. There is no way we could have completed this project without her. Once the house was on the market she hosted a number of open houses and kept us fully updated throughout. Juliet uses technology well, so all of our meetings and document signing could be handled remotely. She was also incredibly accessible via email and text whenever we had a question or needed guidance. Finally, she was just really fun to work with. Very nice and kind and very patient with my 89 year old dad. Thanks Juliet!

Sandy Mekonis

I couldn't be happier with the service I received from Olivia.

Her expertise helped me navigate all my real estate goals. Although I ended up deciding to move out of state, Olivia connected me with a lender and agent out of state that I will be using for my transaction.

Stephanie Conlan

Ramsay is a complete professional.

He is very knowledgeable on home sales, pricing and all the different neighborhoods and what they have to offer in the greater Boston area. He helped us find our perfect home in less than four months. We enjoyed working with him very much.

Debbie T.

"Tony was amazing!

I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell! He carefully considered all that we were looking for in our home and found one that exceeded our expectations. He was also an amazing negotiator and helped us get our home for a price that was well below what we thought we would pay

Stacey Adamson

I’ve worked with Ramsay on the sale and purchase of 3 homes over several years and have had a great experience each time.

Ramsay is not only a knowledgeable realtor, he is a friendly, kind and a fun person to work with. I’d highly recommend him!

Seema L.

I have worked with Olivia for years and she is incredibly professional, hardworking, kind and trustworthy.

Would recommend to any client! She will truly go above and beyond and is a great communicator.

Mariah Schmitt

Ramsay helped us not only to sell our own home, he helped us to buy a new one in the neighborhood we love.

He had the vision and expertise to get us top dollar for our Boston condo, which helped us afford our dream condo. He is so professional & takes the stress out of buying/selling a home. I would use Ramsay again for sure!

Shawn W.

Ramsay was excellent throughout the entire process.

His local knowledge, responsiveness and negotiation skills all helped us get the condo we wanted quickly and efficiently. We would highly recommend him and will use him again!

Dan C.

Ramsay has helped us buy two houses and sell one – and facilitated incredibly smooth and positive processes for all of these transactions.

He's astoundingly knowledgeable about the market in the Boston area, and combines this with a professional attitude and strong network of connections with other realtors in the region (found our first place before it went on the market). When it's come to negotiating and closing sales, he has been level headed, data-backed, and straightforward in his approach. I'd highly recommend working with him for any real estate transaction, whether buying or selling.

Jeff S.

I've had the good fortune of being friends and business associates with Margaret going back to 2007.

During this time I've witnessed her professionalism, expertise and firm but mild-mannered approach to real estate. with each transaction I'm lucky enough to be involved in with her its very clear that her attention to detail and pride in her work is at the forefront. its the ability to tell the client the truth versus what they wish to hear which separates an agent from a great agent and this is where Margaret excels. in 2008 I hired Margaret to sell my home and it was a simple experience with an offer the first weekend at the number she told me it would be at. I strongly recommend Margaret at every opportunity.

Steve Lewis

Betsy didn't miss a thing in helping us sell our house quickly and buy a new townhouse in a very demanding real estate market.

Both transactions were seamless. Betsy helped us get the most for our house while helping us get the best price on our townhouse. I 100% recommend Betsy to anyone looking to buy and/or sell!

Debbie Petroccione

As first time home buyers, we were understandably confused by the home buying process.

Thomas was patient and thorough with us in explaining the process and made it much easier to understand. Thomas was always available to answer our questions or talk over our concerns. Thomas was calm and honest with us; he would lay out the facts and work with us to come up with a solution that worked for us. He provided us with excellent information to provide competitive offers while still protecting ourselves as buyers. We got incredibly lucky to work with Thomas and find a home that is perfect for us!

Steve B. - 1st Time Home Buyer Closed Mar '23 Boston MA $570K - 3 Bed, 1 Bath, 968 Sq. Ft. - Multiple Offers

Ramsay Fretz has helped me both buy and sell condos and investment properties.

He was able to secure a buyer for my South End condo and do a 1031 exchange into a three family in East Boston. He also helped me secure a multi family in Malden for a great price. His background in finance has been a huge help when it comes to understanding the market and investment analytics. I have leaned on him for recommendations for lenders, attorneys, home inspectors, contractors and everything else in the real estate process and they have always been great. Its like having a whole team working for me! I would highly recommend Ramsay, and every person I have referred to him has had a great experience.

Ross G.

Ramsay is incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and knows how to construct an offer that wins.

Scott S.

Margaret and her team helped us sell our home and move into a 2 bedroom apartment.

Her experience was invaluable: where to donate, where to find movers, clean out specialists, make our home broom clean. Her knowledge helped everything go smoothly.

Judith Brigham

And talk about energy!

Amy was great. Very responsive and hard working. Even helped us during her vacation. We are very happy with our new home. She helped in all phases of purchase

Dave

I had an excellent experience with an agent named Olivia Craig, who couldn't have been more helpful.

If you have any questions or concerns, she will address them immediately. Olivia is honest, hard working, and professional. If you are thinking about buying property, Olivia is the person that you should contact.

Carl Blomberg

It was a pleasure doing business with Ramsay and Leading Edge.

He took the time to understand my needs, was patient and he found a terrific place for me. His staff (Glynne) and sales representative (Bri) were terrific as well making sure I didn't miss a beat. I highly recommend Ramsay and Leading Edge.

Lou T.

What a great experience I had working with Margaret Belmonte.

She's truly an exceptional realtor. From beginning to end, her knowledge and business savvy reflected in choices that worked in selling our home. Her integrity and work ethic shined and made this a worry free process as she worked out the best way to go and got a great sale price for our property in Burlington.. Margaret's wisdom and great personality were an added plus. And so easy to work with. I can’t imagine a better experience to sell our home. If you can work with Margaret, you can rest easy that you are in good hands with a realtor who not only knows what she’s doing, but does it really well!

Carol Anderson

"My family is positively thrilled over what Nancy and the Pallotta Group did for us, as we settled our parents’ estate.

They handled everything from a landscaping makeover to a massive clean out and auction to repairs to cosmetic upgrades that made the house shine. We didn’t need to lift a finger. The marketing effort and presentation was tremendous, original and elegant, and done with energy and enthusiasm. It really paid off, as reflected in our multiple offers and final way-over-asking price. During a difficult emotional time for us, Nancy and her team made the process effortless.”

Anthony & Lisa

Ramsay came highly recommended to me by a mutual friend.

I was immediately impressed with Ramsay’s real estate knowledge in general, but especially with his data a analysis. Ramsay helped me both sell my Newton condo and buy my new Watertown condo in less than three months.. Ramsay was particularly helpful with the purchase of my Watertown condo in dealing and negotiating with a difficult seller.
