Find Boston condos for sale before they go on Zillow or

Every Boston condo shopper looks on, and perhaps one of my websites to find their next Boston condo for sale.  That’s a great way to get a feel for what’s  for sale and there and the prices.  But if you know what you want and would like the opportunity to buy it before all the other lookers out there please let me know.  I know how to find owners of the Boston high rise condo your looking for and often can engage them to let you take a look at it to see if you want to make an offer. Having lived and worked in the downtown Boston neighborhood for over 20 years I know a lot of agents that have pocket listings where the Seller is just not ready to go live online yet. 

Please do us both a favor and let me know what your looking for in a downtown Boston condo, the more specific the better and I’ll put my experience and connections to work to try and get you an opportunity no one else know about. In 2018, at least seven of my clients purchased properties that were not in the MLS/Zillow.
