In the crazy Boston and suburbs real estate market of 2021, these clients of mine secured a home and are happy to share their experiences with you.
"It was absolute pleasure having Nouné as my agent for several reason, and I'll go with the already existing format. Responsiveness: No email/text/call went unanswered for more than 30 minutes. I felt like I am buying my apartment with her, vs I am buying it myself, and she's just there to help when needed. She was there with every step of the way, and it gave me a sense of confidence, and security, knowing that my agent cares about me, and the big commitment that I am about to make. Local Knowledge: She knew the streets and local businesses in and out. Anything from historical monuments, museums, to even local authentic restaurants that open and close. She would go out of her way, and send me articles, and interesting news about the area, which made me become more informed about the area, and make a better decision for myself. Negotiations: Nouné made it seem very effortless. She was a great liaison between me and the other agent and homeowners. With the current market, there is not much room for negotiations, but her level of professionalism played a huge role in securing good understanding between the seller and the buyer. Process Expertise: Not once I felt left out of the loop. She took her time to explain everything to me. As a first time home buyer, I was new to a lot of lingo, and the process flow, so she not only explained everything to me, she also prepped me for what was going to happen next. Nouné's knowledge of the industry, made me feel very confident with her. On a personal note: She is very friendly, and a great person to be around. Her easygoing nature made things so much smoother. Thank you Nouné for all your hard work and helping find my new home! I will definitely recommend her to all of my friends!"
"While looking through house listings online we stumbled upon a home that we liked, which was being listed by Nouné. Since we don't usually like to be nagged by too many phone calls from people trying to sell us something, we thought we put in incorrect contact information. Boy were we in for a treat. Turns out, we actually put in our right info and pretty soon after got a surprisingly pleasant phone call from Nouné. She was not salesman-like at all and actually answered several of our questions which helped educate us about the homebuying process and real estate in general, without trying to sell us anything! That's when we knew that she was someone we wanted to work with. Upon meeting in person, we felt Nouné and Allen were the right fit for us. They seemed very genuine and honest people. They were very professional and prompt with their responses. They also had a great network of referrals for the other aspects of the homebuying process (i.e., mortgage lender, real estate attorney, inspectors, etc). They successfully helped us to find our first home, a 2 bedroom townhouse that was absolutely perfect for us. The whole process was smooth and relatively stress free. Nouné was there every step of the way helping us to make sure we would get everything we were entitled to before the closing, while Allen provided us with good ideas/recommendations along the way and more importantly, comedic relief! We couldn't be happier with our homebuying experience. I would highly recommend them to friends and family any time."
"After almost 14 years in our condo in Jamaica Plain, we bought a house out of state. This meant finding a realtor and selling the condo. We had heard great things about Nouné Karapetian and her expertise in real estate. We contacted her and she accepted the challenge. At the time we purchased our condo 14 years ago, the staging was not really being done. When we heard how much staging Nouné planned on doing we were surprised since we thought our condo was in excellent shape and looked polished. But we took her suggestions and the place looked incredible after we were done. The pictures her photographer took convinced us that as buyers, we would want to purchase this property. Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston is getting more popular every day but we didn’t expect what happened. The response from the excellent pricing strategy, staging, photos, and the marketing plan Nouné created resulted in packed open houses. We had 7 offers by Monday night after the first weekend of showings. Nouné masterfully negotiated, asked for “best and final” and after a full day of negotiations got us an amazing offer that was excellent both in price and in terms. This was a better deal than we had ever hoped for. We would definitely recommend Nouné and her services for anyone looking to sell a home. We are very happy we hired her."
"Nouné was very warm, enthusiastic, and helpful from the beginning. We needed to buy a single-family first and sell our condo later. Nouné was very accommodating and helpful, she would drive to our house to pick us up, or meet us after work at the listings we were seeing, she would do the comparable property research and would give us her opinion of the price and she was right on the money every time. We ended up buying for less and the appraisal showed that she was right in her estimate. She also solved a delicate issue we encountered during buying when sellers decided to ask for money for appliances that initially were listed as included in the sale. She managed to negotiate with the seller's agent to leave appliances included as they were initially listed. After the closing, we got our condo ready for sale. She found reliable buyers and was always available on the phone to answer any questions or to help us in other ways, like going to the house to water the plants while we were away. She negotiated a really good price for us. Even though buying and selling a property is inherently very stressful, I would say that working with Nouné felt comforting, as we knew she had our back and will solve whatever issue we get on our way. Besides that, she is a fun person."
"I strongly recommend Nouné Karapetian to assist with your home sale. I was previously acquainted with Nouné and knew she was a specialist in my home area (Watertown). I had heard great things about her knowledge and professionalism so did not see any reason to consider another realtor. Nouné was extremely well organized and knowledgeable about all details related to the home sale, from setting the price, staging the home for sale, directing minor repairs, negotiating, to following through on the closing details. Her job required close communication with many different parties which she handled very impressively. She showed urgency and attention to detail in making sure everything was done correctly and as quickly as possible. She is a great communicator and inspires trust in everyone who works with her. She was extremely easy to reach for any questions and always followed up with helpful reminders for anything that needed to get done. There is no way I can think of that the experience could have been smoother or more pleasant. Nouné Karapetian exceeded my high expectations in every way. Based on her management of the sale, my home sold for a significant increase over both the asking price and over the price paid for it 5 years ago."
"Nouné was our realtor for selling our former place and buying our current one. She clearly explained to us the pros and cons of what to do first (selling or sending an offer). She had multiple dialogues with us to understand what was important to us and how she could support us. She was always available to address our questions (quickly replying to text messages, emails, and calls) and adjusted to last-minute changes in our schedules. She was instrumental in explaining how to prepare our house (major declutter) for the selling as well as explaining the potential financial impact of such an action. She provided examples of what the final product should look like, which helped us a lot for the open house as well as for the actual move. For both processes (selling and buying) she provided to-do lists regarding all the small administrative things that for sure we would have forgotten. She was great at guiding us and helping us and even now that the contracts are signed and the buying and selling processes are done she is still providing useful advice. In summary, Nouné was a fantastic realtor and we highly recommend her. If we ever go for another selling or buying process, we will go with her without a question."
Uncompromising honesty and dedication to her clients is her top priority. Nouné will guide her clients through the entire transaction of buying or selling a home with integrity and their best interest at heart.Let's Connect
