Every person has their own unique set of desires and circumstances. It's my job to use my creativity and expertise to help you achieve your real estate goals. Are you ready?
I’m proud to be Eric’s partner in his various real estate deals. I helped him purchase an investment property in Somerville and a condo in South Boston. I also helped him sell condos in Midtown and Brookline, as well as a single-family home in Needham.
Here's what Eric has to say:
"Her advice was always spot on."
"Over the years, I've worked with several high-end, well-known brokers in the Boston area both buying and selling properties, but working with Ariel is on a different level entirely. The real estate landscape is complex and constantly changing, and both as a seller and a buyer, I had my own complex scenario to understand and navigate. Ariel not only has the detailed knowledge of the market, but she is willing to spend the time to listen deeply to her clients’ individual needs. Her advice was always spot on. I feel like Ariel positioned our sale perfectly; we got more than I expected with no fuss and at extremely convenient terms -- I mean, literally unheard of, unique terms. On the purchasing side, she closed the deal on a property that was exceptionally attractive to us just days after it hit the market, and at a significant discount to asking. Her dedicated and thoughtful analysis of my unique needs as a client enabled her to provide an extremely well thought-out strategy which she clearly communicated to me, and the result of this strategy has been several successful transactions in which the terms negotiated have been beyond what I was hoping for. She was even able to keep me focused and rational when selling my home of over 10 years! I just want to reiterate that while I have had several Boston agents over the years and their services were acceptable, Ariel is really on a different level of experience and execution and I can't recommend her enough."
Liz and Ben's Story
I worked with Liz and Ben on the sale of their loft in the South End and on the purchase of a multi-family in Jamaica Plain.
Here's what Liz and Ben have to say:
"Her knowledge and preparedness are extraordinary."
"We are so impressed with Ariel Szabo and would work with her again in a heartbeat. She stayed 5 steps ahead of us at all times, anticipating our questions in managing the sale of our condo and the purchase of our house. She was so knowledgeable about every aspect of selling our condo that she knew a great deal more about regulations and requirements that we did! We are definitely not neophytes about purchasing a home; this was our sixth, but when we were negotiating the purchase of our home we learned to turn to her for her advice instead of puzzling out a strategy on our own. Her intuition was spot on and we have to thank her for helping us to make a better deal than we imagined possible. Her knowledge, preparedness and professionalism are extraordinary."
I represented Dan on the purchase of a new construction condo in Somerville.
Here's what Dan has to say:
"Ariel Szabo was a joy to work with through my challenging buying process in the highly competitive market. I was particularly impressed at how responsive and available she was. Ariel consistently answered emails, phone calls, and texts promptly throughout my long search, and was so organized that scheduling time to see places or making offers on short notice was never a problem. That was absolutely critical in the multiple-offer, quick-paced environment I saw myself in. She is also a smart negotiator and provided me with great comps and market information so I had all I needed when I made an offer."
I worked with Matthew as his sellers agent in Beacon Hill.
Here's what Matthew has to say:
"Ariel provided an aggressive marketing and listing strategy that led to multiple offers over asking price in less than 48 hours of the listing hitting MLS. Her execution of the process was flawless. She handled all of the leg work and was always in contact during the process. My only regret is that I don't have any other properties to give her to list!"
"Ariel was engaged and personally vested in succeeding on finding my perfect place."
Mike and Anna's Story
I represented Mike and Anna on the sale of their condo in Beacon Hill and on the purchase of their new home in Charlestown.
Here's what Mike and Anna have to say:
"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Ariel and cannot thank her enough for making the process a smooth one. She was a wealth of knowledge and unafraid to ask the tough questions to get us the information we needed to make informed decisions about reviewing and putting in offers on units. She acted as the broker for both the simultaneous sale and purchase of a condo on our behalf and would definitely work with her again. Ariel was extremely patient with us as we reviewed over 30 places over the course of a few months and once we found a place we liked, she was instrumental on assisting with the accepted offer (11 other offers were reviewed). Her willingness to step outside of the box to assist us with both the sale and purchase of a home was very helpful and we would work with her again."
I helped Greg purchase a condo in the South End.
Here's what Greg has to say:
"She was always available and responsive to my questions."
"Ariel worked with me as a buyers agent. Due to a lack of inventory, my search took longer than I had expected and hoped for. Ariel was able to find out about a number of properties before they hit the market, giving me an advantage in this competitive environment. She was always available, responsive to my questions, and diligent in providing me with comparable properties that sold when I was interested in making an offer. When I did find the right property, Ariel worked quickly to get my offer in and secure the condo for me."
I represented Natalie as a sellers agent in South Boston and a buyers agent in Dorchester.
Here's what Natalie has to say:
"Working with Ariel was an excellent experience. As someone who comes from sales, I appreciate the nuances of what makes the sales process seamless. Ariel is professional, process driven with a strong sense of urgency in representing her clients. I especially appreciate a transparent, responsive, consultancy driven approach. I had an offer and acceptance in hand just two days after being on the market at asking price. I am now working with Ariel on completing the purchase of my new home and can’t say enough to recommend her services to anyone looking to sell or buy their next home or investment property. She’s an absolute real estate rock star and a pretty amazing artist too.
Mark and Susan's Story
I worked with Mark and Susan on the sale of their condo in the Back Bay.
Here's what Mark and Susan have to say:
"Ariel was the utmost professional in all areas."
"Ariel was the utmost professional in all areas; in manner, communication and effort. Her analysis of the current market, marketing materials and recommendations were impressive. She stayed in touch with us at the appropriate times, even while we traveled abroad. She kept our spirits up when we experienced a set back and got right to work to get us back on track and bring our property to closing. Thank you again for representing us so well. "
I helped Jan sell her condo in the South End.
Here's what Jan has to say:
“I highly recommend Ariel Szabo. Working with her over the last 2 years to secure tenants for my condo in the South End, she found two pairs of delightful tenants who were fantastic. Then, when I decided to sell my place, she provided sound advice in replacing carpets and painting the bathroom andhelped me to find people to assist in this process. Most importantly, through her responsiveness and sound guidance, my place was listed and sold within 4 days, well exceeding the asking price. As I reside overseas in Paris, I truly needed someone on the ground who was ultra-responsive and knowledgeable of the market now. I found that in Ariel and heartily recommend her.”
I represented Laurie as a buyers agent in the Back Bay.
Here's what Laurie has to say:
I have been searching for a Boston property for well over a year. Many variables changed during my search. Ariel listened and advised me 100% along the way. Her knowledge of the different neighborhoods was priceless. I live in florida which could have made my search agonizing but it was notbecause Ariel was so immediately responsive when I saw a listing online . She managed to answer any questions I had and often times viewed the property herself and sent me videos. When I finally found the right property Ariel was there to help secure the deal and to follow through with all the documents necessary to make for a smooth transition. She also helped me locate trustworthy contractors to do a few renovations. It has been a delight to work with her and to recommend Ariel to anyone looking for a Boston property.
