What Clients Are Saying

“Michael Rothstein has proven himself to be a masterful partner at selling my long-treasured historic Newton house. He and I discussed options and worked through decisions from clear out, ..timing coming to market, in every step of the way.

 

“I highly recommend Michael Rothstein! I keep referring many friends to him.  He has proven himself to be skillful, imaginative, strategic and importantly ...good humored!”

Diana K., November 2020
"Mike, great working with you on this project. I definitely will recommend you if anybody’s asking in the area. Also if I am in the market I definitely will call you. Thank you."
--C. G., August 2020

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 when purchasing our home in Newton. He is extremely professional in his work and knowledgeable about the housing market. We could always count on Michael to get back to us very quickly with any questions we had. Because of him, we are moving in the home of our dreams!”

-- Laura and Reuben F., October 2018

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!
I just had the pleasure of working with Michael Rothstein on the sale of our property in Wellesley. It goes without saying that everything went smoothly from signing on with Michael to the closing. But, additionally, I live in Florida and COVID 19 added huge obstacles re travel etc. I felt completely confident that the home was safe, looked after and in good hands. Lots of work needed to be done that I could not be there for. Michael arranged everything, oversaw the work in process and, I felt, totally had my interest at heart.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have had the pleasure to meet and work with Michael during the purchase of our condominium. Michael is one-of-a-kind. He is kind, caring, and knowledgeable. He always had our best interest no matter how big or small the problem - he was always there for us. Not only is Michael fantastic at what he does (and we are very particular), but we also now consider him a friend.  

Paula and Ron B., April 2020
"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

“You are great at what you do! You have great energy and optimism. Thanks for your encouragement! Thank you for selling my condo.”

-- Cathy B., January 2019

You are great at what you do!

“We would like to commend Mr. Michael Rothstein for his professionalism, honesty, and dedication during his service as a seller agent on our behalf. In addition to being pleasant, patient, and extremely accessible and accommodating, Michael’s knowledge and understanding of the Newton real estate market has been of great value during the sales process. Michael is meticulous and process-oriented and he was instrumental through every stage of the process: presentation, pricing, negotiations, due diligence, and the closing process. We highly recommend him. He simply brings a peace of mind to what can be a stressful and complex process.”

--Moti and Bonit P., November 2018

We would like to commend Mr. Michael Rothstein

“Michael, Thank you so much for all your help and support! We couldn't have asked for a better agent.”

-- Rob L., October 2018

We couldn't have asked for a better agent

"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!"

-- Deborah C., September 2018

Our experience with Michael Rothstein was superior

"Michael was great. He guided us through the process smoothly, was on top of showings and was excellent at communicating with us. We thought the prices for the house we bought and the one that sold were fair. Overall, I recommend Michael highly."

-- C.P. & S.R., July 2018

Michael was great

"I've worked with Michael as a seller and a buyer. He is the best real estate broker I have ever met in over twenty-five years of buying and selling property. He knows the market at all segments incredibly well, understands how to value property, gives great advice, is an expert negotiator, and is an honest and terrific person."

-- Ellen R., December 2017

He is the best real estate broker I have ever met
