Bonnie and Paul Lucas

Thank you for all your help in selling my mother's house. And thanks to Christine, Jay and Ana for helping make this process work so smoothly. I know we couldn't have sold this house without you as our realtor. I had a goal in mind to have the house sold by winter, and thanks to your experience and expertise, you priced it to bring in many buyers and many offers (congrats to you!) over the asking price, and getting it sold so quickly and at a great price.

I also want to let you know that our attorney was very impressed with you and your team. He told us personally how kind you were to support us at the closing and also the touching gesture of the sketched photo.

Thank you so much for everything. You made this experience very pleasant and stress free. I know my mother would have been very happy (and my father too) and they would have loved you and your team also!!

The Pandolfo Family

My Husband and I worked with Jay for our first home purchase. He made the process as simple and easy as he could in such a tough market. He truly made this an enjoyable process and helped us in so many different ways throughout the buying cycle. We would highly recommend him to any of our friends and especially to first time home buyers/sellers!

Paige Sullivan

Kim Perrotti provided expert guidance for selling my home � from the photographer and staging my home, to recommending a mover, to setting pricing, to understanding the selling process. Kim�s sales strategy was highly effective for selling my home in under a week and for well above the asking price. Her help and advice were crucial in understanding the multiple offers and selecting the best one.

The team knows what they are doing! They always responded to my questions and requests in a timely manner. They were professional and organized, and they coordinated well with the buyers, the lawyers, and the city departments throughout all stages of the sale. A great job!


Thank you so much for all you did to sell our home in Melrose. It all seemed so easy and that is no doubt due to the experience of you and your team! We are so happy with how everything was run and the outcome of course ☺ We know it was a group effort and want to express our gratitude to you, Gretchen, Jay & Christine. Thank you!!

Amy and Chad Darling

We are very thankful that my friend recommended Kim and her team to us! Being a first time buyer, we were nervous of the whole process. Kim explained to us everything we needed to know the first time we met her! She even recommended names where we can get pre-approved for the loan.

They were all knowledgeable, patient and courteous. Along the way, Ana became our dedicated agent. She is very helpful during the whole process. She explained to us every detail we needed to know during the visits to houses especially during the closing process. She has been patient in answering our questions and very prompt to reply to emails or calls.

Overall, we are very satisfied with our service with them! We will definitely refer them to our friends!

Thank you!

The Rabesas

We were first-time buyers, and we could not have navigated the intense market around Melrose if it were not for Ana and the rest of her team. She was able to identify the houses we wanted to see, and even more importantly she was able to educate us on the best approach and strategy to take when we finally decided we had found the right house. Due to Ana's depth of knowledge and calm approach, we were able to find exactly what we were looking for - and we did all of it with our first and only offer!

Matt and Dulcy

Jay was very helpful on what updates needed to happen prior to listing our home for sale. He was also very knowledgeable on how to price it correctly for the current market. He helped us every step of the way selling our house in 4 days for over asking price as well as guiding us on the purchase of our new home. I would recommend Jay to anyone looking for a Realtor and will definitely use him again should the need arise.

Steven & Erica Savage - Groton

Jay is honest, kind, responsive and very knowledgeable. He helped my family find our home over the past 7 months. He was patient, and always available to answer questions. It's not an easy task to find the right home on a budget, but Jay made the process feel easy. I wouldn't even consider another realtor after working with Jay. He and the team he works with are absolutely fantastic!

Chris & Christine Passmore - Melrose

Jay was fantastic through every step of a really challenging transaction. There were many, many additional "hurdles" during our purchase than a typical one and Jay helped us navigate each step, even though it was a unique transaction for him as well. He was very responsive and available and quick to respond to any inquiries. Most of our interactions were texts at odd hours (at our request/schedule/style) though he was always available to talk as well if needed. He advocated for us but was also objective in providing information.

Chris & Cate Merlin - Wakefield

Jay came highly recommended to us by close friends, and he lived up to every word. We had a very limited time in which to search for a house, and Jay responded to any of our requests very quickly and was available to us as much as we needed. He made us feel like we were his only clients, although we know that he is actually very busy. Jay was a calming support during what could have been a very stressful period. He took the time to understand our needs and made recommendations based on our preferences and comfort levels. He made sure we had all the information necessary to make decisions without ever pressuring us one way or another. It was a pleasure to work with Jay and we will definitely recommend him to friends and family

Chris and Adrienne Gibbons - Melrose

Jay was fantastic. He was knowledgable and patient. He listened to my husband and my wants and wish list items and helped us find our perfect first home! He had our best interest at hand every step of the way. His negotiation skills were superb and he was extremely responsive. I would highly recommend Jay and his partner Kim to our friends and family and will use them again when we go to purchase our second home. Overall great experience!

Marc and Danielle, N Andover MA

We are so happy to have found Kim to guide us through the extensive search for our new home. There are so many positive things to say about Kim, from her knowledge of the market, her professionalism, the ease of working with her and her responsiveness to our needs. She made the entire process so easy. Even in situations where we got emotional Kim remained calm and professional. We had a very unique circumstance and Kim's knowledge and experience supported our needs. Her market research was fact and number based and we arrived exactly where we needed to be, situation wise, financially, and peace of mind. We can wholeheartedly recommend Kim to anybody who is looking for a Realtor with competence.

Jennifer and Paul Wierl

As a first time home buyer, Jay made the experience as easy and painless as possible. He brought great industry knowledge to the table and worked tirelessly to ensure the deal was done on time and done right. I would recommend Jay to anyone looking for a hardworking, caring, honest agent that will bend over backwards for his clients. When the time comes for my next property I will not consider working with anyone else. I can't say enough good things about Jay

Brian, Stoneham MA

Kim was a great partner in our search for a home in Melrose. Her knowledge of the local market and willingness to go the extra mile really made our search, selection, offer and buying process easy. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for an agent to help them find a new home.

Brian and Lisa Skinner

Jay was such a pleasure to deal with. From the get go, it was all about us. We were not pressured to look at properties. He was upfront and honest on every issue. His support, professionalism and knowledge was like no one else we have dealt with in the past. For us, we encountered a few road blocks, in which Jay handled promptly. Being busy with work, family and etc it is difficult to stay on top of everything, the bank, inspectors, insurance companies, Jay took care of this for us. His response to any issue big or small was quick and thorough. If it was not for Jay, we would not be in our new house, which we could not be happier with. He was a true example of service excellence!!! Thanks again Jay!

Jim and Caitlin, Wakefield MA

Kim helped us to buy our very first home. For that reason alone, we will never forget her. We hold a special place for Kim in our hearts. We brought our babies home from the hospital to our first home. We planted our first real garden. We made some lovely renovations to the home. So many great memories. We had many birthday parties, celebrations, and cook outs in our backyard. Kim was there for us every step of the way as first-time home buyers. She made sure that we found the home that both my husband and I loved and could afford. It's amazing when I think back how my husband and I walked into our first home, and we just knew. We just knew this was the home for us. We thank Kim for leading us to our first home. Overall, Kim also helped us to take the big leap from renting to owning. Remembering back, she calmed our nerves of becoming homeowners quite a bit. Kim has a way of putting you at ease, with her easy going, professional and considerate nature. We never felt pressured to make a decision to buy or reject a home. She was so patient with us. That was ten years ago now. Eventually, many people buy a second home. We hated to leave our first home, but we needed more space, and we wanted to move closer to my aging mother. When it came time to buy our second home, Kim was there for us again. We could not think of turning to anyone else. Well, we have been living in this new home for close to 2 years now, we love it and will probably retire in this home. We will send our kids off to college from this home. Kim has a way of helping you to find the home that you always dreamed of calling home. Kim is a smart realtor, a patient professional, and caring. She knows that this is one of the biggest financial decisions that you will ever make in your life, and wants her customers to be happy, going the distance to be sure that it meets your needs, your children's needs for schools, and your entire family's needs. She goes that extra step for you, and I can tell you, if we needed to move again, we would call Kim.

Ellen and Alex Davidson
Newton, MA

Being first time home buyers doing it all on our own, the notion of a realtor was unsettling to us. We didn't want to be sold a house, we wanted someone who would be patient, professional and humble that work with and accomadate our every need. Jay found a way to not only do this but go over and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Jay was there every step of the way, answered every question asked (and we asked ALOT!), and showed how committed he was to understanding what we wanted in a home. To make this quite simple, we no longer look at Jay as our realtor but he and his family as friends.

Nick and Kaitlyn Stoneham MA

Jay was a pleasure to work with. He answered all my questions and was always available when I either emailed him or called him. There were times my husband was not able to house hunt with me and Jay stepped in and looked at the houses in my husbands eyes.

Kevin and Deanna N. Peabody, MA

Kim Perrotti is an extremely knowledgeable and exceptionally competent Realtor. We had some problematic challenges (unrelated to her marketing and selling our home) during the process of selling our home and Kim confronted and solved the problems head on as though it was an everyday occurrence. Kim was also our Realtor for the purchase of the home we sold. It was a painless transaction. I would highly recommend Kim, and her team, for selling and purchasing a home.

Erin M., Melrose, MA

Kim has helped me with both buying & selling, and her calm demeanor made everything as stress free as possible! Her knowledge of Melrose really helped me choose the right condo when it was time for me to downsize from my house. I had never made any real estate decisions on my own before, but Kim helped me feel confident with every step. I highly recommend Kim & her team!

Kathy Diorio

Kim was very patient and helpful. From the numerous homes we toured, to the unending questions we asked, Kim was there to lend a hand. After years of searching on Kim's website, we finally found what we were looking for.....actually, more than what we were looking for. We contacted Kim and braced ourselves for a long and painful process. It wasn't! Not even close. We closed surprisingly quick and she even helped us find websites that specialized in the repairs that we had to make in our home, saving us a lot of money. Kim is honest, helpful and very professional. She made a lot of recommendations to us that worked out perfectly. She knows her stuff. Do the smart thing, hire Kim. She's my agent moving forward.

Martin Anaya

I wish more people knew and understood the word professional the way Kim does. When we decided to purchase our first home we were braced for a long, arduous and frustrating process. From the moment we met Kim she took time to explain the entire purchasing procedure with distinct and clear detail. At every turn Kim was there with us providing the information we needed so we could make an informed decision. She listened to all of our needs and wants, thoughtfully suggested properties and set up appointments. She let us set the pace and when we found the house we wanted she quickly helped us build a strategy and put a successful plan into action. No call or email ever went unanswered. She kept track of all the important dates so nothing was ever forgotten or fell through the cracks. Her impeccable attention to detail allowed us to feel confident and enjoy finding our first home. In other words, we felt she always, had our back. Buying a home can be fun when done with someone of her caliber. She is ethical, hardworking and a genuinely nice person- a true professional.

Gretchen and Mark Kruger, Melrose

I have worked with Kim twice in the past 10 years and I can't say enough about how helpful she was. For my first house I only needed a starter home that was in close proximity to family members. Kim was able to find exactly what I was looking for in minimal time. Once the family started to grow, I needed something bigger, but I was unsure of where I wanted to go to. I even had thoughts of moving out of state! Kim was so patient while, even after we had our house on the market and it sold, I took my time deciding where to go next. I finally ended up with a perfect home that she found for us, in close proximity to where my oldest went to school, so she didn't even have to change school districts. Both my daughter and I were very pleased as it made for an easy transition, and the size of the house was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend the Kim Perrotti team for all your buying and selling needs.

Barbara Wells, Wilmington, MA

There is not enough room to tell you how great Kim Perrotti is at her job. She was instrumental in finding the perfect house for me and my family this year. I wanted to purchase a home that would accommodate extended family but not feel like a 2 family house. It was a difficult assignment but Kim worked hard to find us the right house in a market that had very little inventory fitting the criteria. She listened carefully to what we were looking for and with her networking connections was able to find the house I ended up buying. She was so helpful from negotiations to the inspection and all the way through the closing. It could have been a very stressful time but Kim seemed to shoulder the responsibility and made the whole process flow seamlessly. She arranged for us to have the first showing and we made an offer that day. She kept in constant touch and was ... you how great Kim Perrotti is at her job.

Gail Waibel

I am a contractor with over 22 years experience in buying and selling real estate. I have had dealings with dozens of agents with mixed reviews. I found Kim through a friend about 10 years ago and haven't looked back. She is my go to person whenever I have a question or need an answer on a property. Kim has handled many transactions for me, and all went smoothly. I have recommended her to customers, friends and relatives, and all of them have told me she was professional, easy to work with and knew her stuff. If you are looking to buy or sell a property on the North Shore, do yourself a favor and call Kim. You won't be disappointed!

Marc Gobiel, Melrose, MA

"Kim was really great to work with. My wife and I were first time home buyers and kind of clueless. Kim took the time at the beginning of the process to detail all the steps of the home buying process and give us sample copies of all the documents that we would see throughout the process. Kim was always very responsive to calls and quick to get us answers to any questions if she didn't know right away. Kim is a wonderful agent and we would gladly work with her again."

Shawn Burgess

We have worked with Kim on four real estate purchases over the past 10 years. She and her team have consistently gone above and beyond making it possible for our family to take advantage of opportunities and relocate when we wanted to, and on our terms. Their reliable hard work has literally helped to make our family's life better.

Chris and Charlotte Braun

Now that we've settled in we wanted to drop you a note and thank you for all your help with our home purchase. We really felt like we got expert, spot-on advice from you and that made a world of difference with our transaction.

Tim & Betsy Sliski-Rowland, Wakefield, MA

Dear Kim,

We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work in helping us find the home of our dreams. It has been a thrill to work with you. Your support has made buying a house the most seamless and stress-free process that you could imagine. Your professionalism and honestly is admirable. You are truly a credit to your field.

Thank you,
Erin and Derry Madden

My wife and I were looking for a house in 2006, just as the housing market started its decline. We were still optimistic enough to buy a much larger house before selling our current house. Thankfully, Kim skillfully managed our selling process. She took the time to make sure we had a very respectable selling price, which attracted a good volume of prospective buyers. Kim was able to sell the one really interested buyer with a purchase price close to our list. She managed this buyer full circle, through a tough buyer's agent, through a "nitpicky" inspection and through our closing. I would happily recommend Kim to anyone who is buying or selling a home. In this tough housing market, I would certainly call her "reliable."

Brian and Judi Hayes
Melrose, MA

Mark and I really enjoyed working with you. You truly helped to make our first home purchase a very good experience. Your responsiveness, concern and understanding throughout the process made us feel like we were your only clients. We look forward to working with you again.

Kathy & Mark Wilkenson


I just wanted to thank you so much for all the hard work you did helping sell my condo. I really enjoyed working with you and appreciated your high degree of professionalism and good attitude. Please feel free to use me as a reference any time. I will be more than happy to tell any of your prospective clients how good both of you are. Also, if I know of anyone looking for help, I will gladly send them your way.

It's been a pleasure. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Thanks again,

Ivan Quiroz
