"I was a first time home buyer and Blake helped to make the process seamless. He was extremily easy to get a hold of and prompt to respond to any questions from start to finish. His knowledge of the industry and local market was a nice asset to have especially when buying in a very fast paced Boston real estate market. In what most people would consider a seller's market based upon the inventory available, he was able to negotiate the selling price to what I wanted. I would certainly recommend Blake to anyone looking to buy real estate in the Boston area. "
"I approached buying a home with some trepidation. That is to say I didn't know what the heck I was doing. I went to our first meeting determined to not be rushed into anything. I had my armory of defenses: "Uhm, no, that's too soon" "no, that is NOT in my price-range" "no, I'm just not ready."
I was very pleasantly surprised. Not only did Blake not pressure me into buying asap, he took the time to explain everything to me and was extremely patient with my questions, letting me go through the process on my terms. I was reassured when he said that he's worked with some people for a few weeks and others close to a year. He was always available to schedule showings for me with little notice (+), extremely understanding when I wrestled with myself because 'it's just such a huge decision!' (another +), and most importantly, took his job seriously and was extremely professional (a major +). I care a lot about what I do and expect nothing less from others. Blake delivered. He has a lender and an attorney that he works with and while I never felt pressured to use them, I appreciated that it was a well oiled machine when I had to close in 4 weeks rather than the customary 6.
Now, here I am sitting pretty in my new home (well, it could use a new coat of paint, but yes, not Blake's responsibility :) Could I have done it on my own, with one of those cheapo-agent substitute sites? Maybe, I'm fairly smart I'd like to think. But I would have been overwhelmed and too invested in whatever I was looking at, leading to a rushed decision (exactly what I hoped to avoid). Or given up (also not great). So, would I recommend Blake to a friend buying a new home? Yes, absolutely."

"Blake is personable, energetic and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. He's bravely gone to the 'outside the box' solutions that real estate can require. He has a fine knowledge base. When he needed more information, he knew exactly where to find it, was quick to access and relay all necessary information to the appropriate parties. He is brilliantly adept, patient at handling 'difficult situations and people'- consistently displaying calm resolve, wisdom beyond his years. He stayed long and late hours, drove far out of his way and showed himself always willing to go the extra mile to be sure our family got into the right home. He is one determined caring young person! Blake is a whole new breed of Realtor, refreshingly agile on his feet and personally committed to concerned excellence. He loves working with your needs and desires, helping to find you the home that is right for you and your family.”

"As a first time home buyer, I was lost and confused while viewing properties online. But after Blake Sherwood called and chatted for a little while I felt much more at ease. He demonstrated a high degree of expertise in the real estate market. His ability to work with many different clients was impressive in that he was always flexible and reliable. If I insisted on seeing a property that just went on the market, he would be more than happy to arrange it. Blake’s style is open and inviting to questions and willingly gave his time to respond thoroughly. He is professional but yet so personable. Blake knows exactly how to manage his time and recognizes the importance of a strong work ethic, persistence, and intellectual integrity. Blake is extremely enthusiastic about his work which is infectious. I certainly recommend him with absolute confidence to anyone buying a property."

"Working with Blake was a fantastic experience. His professional demeanor coupled with his honesty and reliability made purchasing my first home easy and pleasant. Blake really went the extra mile for me going out of his way to make sure all of my questions were answered. He was able to provide for me good references for others to work with throughout the purchasing process. I have happily referred friends who are looking for a home to him."
