What Clients Are Saying

Thank you to Mike for helping me to make a difficult time go very smoothly. I appreciate his attention to the " little" things and knowing how best to showcase my home. I couldn't be happier.

Bill R., October 2019

Michael was a pleasure to work with when we sold our home in Newton.  He approached our sale with energy and a superior wealth of knowledge about the market.  Whenever we had questions, Michael had the answers.  He was there for us every step of the way and he made sure we knew what to expect at each stage, starting with the listing, the open houses and right through the purchase and sale and closing.  Even though selling a house can be stressful, Michael’s sense of humor and people skills made things as easy as possible.  Thank you Michael!

Jeff and Johanna M.

"Michael was highly recommended to me by a family member whose lawyer told him to never think about less than the best real estate agent in the area. I was absolutely not disappointed. I started thinking of selling my house of 30 years after losing my husband and had no idea where to start. He was extremely professional, sensitive, knowledgeable, responsive, and dedicated every step of the way and sold the house in one day without an open house to buyers. I would full heartedly recommend Michael as your right hand. He Is The Best."

-- Pnina R., January 2019

He Is The Best

“My husband and I had been in our Newton home for over 40 years. Having Michael navigate the buying and selling process made what could have a stressful time an enjoyable, exciting one. Regardless of the time of day or night, Michael was available to answer all questions and concerns. I felt like Michael was as trustworthy and knowledgeable as my own Dad would have been. You just can't get any better. Thank you, Michael Rothstein."

-- George and Virginia G., January 2019

You just can't get any better

“We would certainly recommend you to anyone in need of a real estate agent. You were very thoughtful of our needs as well as providing the professionalism in the listing and sale of our home of 47 years. We always felt that you put us before the sale of our home.”

-- Vincent and Nicky D., November 2018

We would certainly recommend you

It was a pleasure working with Michael Rothstein

"Michael was a pleasure to deal with. He made the experience painless without the typical sales tactics or arrogance we had experienced from the other leading firm in Newton. Great guy! Buying or selling, you won’t find much better."

-- M.K. & B.A., July 2018

Michael was a pleasure to deal with

"Michael is hands-down awesome! We sold our house for more than we thought we would. We contacted Michael after reading his reviews and working with him only validated his excellent reputation. Michael has superior knowledge of the market and great intuition. He also went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly throughout the whole process. He is also a great researcher - willing and able to find out the exact information one needs. What impressed us further is that he truly respects his client's point of view. We never felt under pressure. He gave us direct opinions and thorough advice on multiple occasions. His expertise allowed us to totally trust every bit of advice he gave. He walked us through the process and kept us informed. Most importantly, he is open and honest and we really appreciated that! Whoever is lucky to have him, and his team, as agents, will be in great hands. Thank you very much, Michael!"

-- J.G. & S.G., June 2018

Michael is hands-down awesome!

“Michael's work as our real estate broker was first-rate in every respect. He is knowledgeable about the market, creative in his approach to problem-solving and sensible in his advice. He's also a great guy - always willing to go the extra mile to satisfy his clients. He helped us prepare the house for sale, priced it intelligently and negotiated for us with the purchaser. We were able to obtain a great offer for the house within days of its going on the market and he worked diligently with us until closing. I couldn't have asked for a better experience working with a broker. I would use him again without hesitation.”

-- Steve E., December 2017

Michael's work as our real estate broker was first-rate

"Michael is an excellent real estate broker. He is very knowledgeable about the market and is a great resource. He is always professional and extremely responsive to client needs. One of the things that impressed me most about Michael is his commitment to his clients. He responded immediately to any questions we had, brainstormed with us, took care or details and made himself available to us whenever we needed him. He made the stressful process of buying and selling much easier and enjoyable for us."

-- Don and Linda S., September 2017

Michael is an excellent real estate broker
"Michael is thorough, responsive and VERY knowledgable about the local real estate market. He lives and breathes real estate and it shows. I recently asked him to evaluate my home for a potential sale and even though he knew we weren't sure we were ready to sell, he came to look at my home quickly, armed with a very thorough market analysis he had done. He toured the property and had a lot of good advice about ways to enhance its appeal and value. He does NOT have a sales-y personality, which is important to me as you will spend a lot of time with your realtor. I give him my highest recommendation."
Vicki R, September 2019

I’ve worked with Michael on 6 transactions over the past 30 years. The first transaction was the sale of a condo during a soft market, making it a particular challenge but he succeeded! He’s been both my buying and selling broker, He always gets top dollar after putting great thought and research into pricing it and promoting it properly. He’s very honest. During each transaction, there’s no question that he’s focused, committed, and he works tirelessly and at all hours of the day to close the transaction to both the buyer’s and seller’s delight. During my next transaction he’ll be my broker again!

Steve B. , June, 2019

We highly recommend him. He simply brings a peace of mind to what can be a stressful and complex process.”

"Our experience with Michael Rothstein was superior! Michael is personable, knowledgeable, and highly organized. Michael goes above and beyond the call of duty! My brother and I were selling our childhood home. It was very emotional for us. Michael was sensitive to our situation and guided us with his expertise. We were impressed with Michael from the first time we met. He had a bound booklet with a colored photo of our house along with houses comparable on the market. His experience and knowledge of the market allowed us to move forward through the process easily.

“We are very grateful to Michael and would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a property! Five Stars!"

"Kavita and I want to thank you for helping us in buying our beautiful home for our family! It has been truly a joy knowing you.

“We had been looking for a dream house that all of us liked for many years. You have been with us on this journey all along. You clearly understood our values, culture, tradition, and the sentiments we were looking in a house. The patience you showed while walking us through many houses in Newton and Weston is most appreciated. Regardless of the weather, you were there for us on this precious milestone. We developed immense faith in your guidance, learning your honesty and pristine work ethic.

“What we admired most was the patience you displayed, the way you carefully listened to our opinions and the time and space you gave us to think about different houses as we walked through.

“Your knowledge of the market and accurate assessment of home values provided us with assurance and confidence as a buyer. The eagerness with which you discussed the positives and negatives of each house we saw, particularly taking our tastes and opinions into consideration was very valuable to us. You made this entire process of finding a suitable home for our family -a memorable happy journey.

“In this journey, you have become a very dear friend to our family.

“We wish you and your family a fabulous summer and please stay in touch!”
