Bruce SwantonClient, BuyerFrank was a great help in finding our new home! From the search through negotiations, his knowledge of the market, strong customer service skills, and interest in us as individuals and the attributes we were looking for in a new home were invaluable to us. April 6th,2013
Frank sold our home in 3 days for 40% more than we paid for it 2 years ago. Before taking it to market, Frank created amazing marketing materials, including a brochure and a dedicated website with great photography, floor plans and thorough information. Frank also did all of this in the midst of a blizzard that dropped 3 feet of snow in Charlestown and shut the city down for days. Frank's the best.Thu, Apr 4, 2013
We were fortunate to have been referred to Frank to represent us in our Charlestown, MA real estate search. Frank was a tireless advocate for us at every stage of the process. In this market it is important to have a good agent and we were rewarded by "winning" an excellent property that recently closed.
I wholeheartedly recommend Frank to anyone who is considering listing their property or who needs an excellent buyer's agent.

As a first time buyer I was basically clueless about the whole process. Frank was excellent in guiding me through the necessary steps. He was extremely helpful, knowledgable, and patient. I can not say enough great things about my experience with him and would absolutely recommend him to all my friends.Tue, Jan 8, 20
I have been involved in many real estate transactions. Of all the brokers I have dealt with over the last four decades, Frank stands out. He did a flawless job from setting the price to quietly marketing the property which resulted in a sale in 10 days at the price that I wanted.
Frank is easy to work with, very responsive, knowledgeable and extremely savy. I would use him again without any hesitation. I recommend Frank as a real estate agent without any reservation. 1/23/15
