Carolyn is very warm and pleasant to work with. She is super familiar with the local area, and provided us a lot of insightful information, comments and suggestions. When we decided to make an offer, she immediately got to work with market comparison and offer drafting even though it was after hours. She provided us very practical suggestions to help structure our offer in a competitive market. She continued to be a wonderful source for us after offer acceptance, providing valuable information and recommendations. The loan agency and attorney office that she connected us to were also great to work with. We are grateful for her making the whole process as least stressful as possible!

I highly recommend working with Carolyn. I was making a cross country move, buying and selling homes in the process. With one call and one visit, Carolyn immediately understood my style and helped me determine which town/neighborhood would be the right fit. Throughout the purchasing process, Carolyn was ALWAYS available – even when she was on vacation. She truly made the process low stress and enjoyable. Since purchasing my new home, she has also been a great resource for recommendations, helping learn my new community. Thank you Carolyn!

We relocated to the Boston Greater Area with a very tight timeframe to buy a house before the school year started. Carolyn took the time to understand our needs, answer our many questions, and help us navigate the local real estate market in an efficient way. Her extensive knowledge of the area was crucial in finding and purchasing a home that we love and is just perfect for us, while making the process feel easy and seamless in an extremely fast paced and competitive market. Once we entered into an agreement, she assisted us through every step of the way. She’s a true professional with her clients best interests at heart. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in this area.

I could not have asked for a better realtor! Carolyn had the expertise and demeanor that helped manage a tricky situation with the sale of our home. She never tired of answering questions or coming up with unique solutions. Her knowledge of the market and real estate, in general, is unsurpassed. I would highly recommend her.
Sandy S. – October 2017
Carolyn was very knowledgeable about the Boston market and came prepared with lots of comparable property data, and was very helpful in assessing the quality of the investment. She was friendly and professional and always thought to ask some of the important questions that I forgot, and was realistic in discussing my concerns.
Rick B.– October 2017
We moved from out of state and had little knowledge of the area. We found Carolyn and she has been an absolute star. We had only a few phone calls and meetings with her to discuss our requirements and she nailed it. She was honest, objective and wasn’t afraid to provide constructive feedback on a property when appropriate. Carolyn knew what we wanted better than we did and she delivered by finding a house that exceeded our requirements. Her negotiation skills were superb and swift! In addition, she provided extensive guidance and advice on a number of local amenities, resources in our local area. Over and above selling us our home we greatly appreciated her input on house renovation aspects (sourcing our contractor and advice on interior design!!). We couldn’t be happier in our new home and we love our new community!

In our search for a condo, we reviewed a few Realtors before deciding to partner with Carolyn. What appealed to us most was her knowledge of the Boston market–especially Waltham, Watertown, Belmont, and Newton, and her ability to patiently help us narrow down our requirements and location. Once Carolyn had our requirements, she was able to present us with the right fit options, whenever they became available. Be it covered parking or cooking gas, she could locate great options for us based on our demanding requirements.
Once we decided to make the purchase, Carolyn was there each step of the way, playing the role of a trusted advisor, until we moved in. It has been a pleasure working with Carolyn, and we are thrilled to have engaged her services in our search for our condo.

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Carolyn Boyle. Her expertise was evident throughout the entire process – from staging our home, to pricing it competitively and bringing in excellent potential buyers. We are grateful for all of her hard work in making the sale so flawless and positive. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.”

“The true measure of greatness in any profession is the ability to perform under adverse circumstances. In the summer of 2016, when the sellers ruled and inventories were at an all-time low, Carolyn Boyle came through gloriously for us by helping us buy a home in Belmont at a great value.
Carolyn is a true embodiment on what a true professional should be. She has the grace, intelligence, diligence and steadfastness that the job demands. She went with us to countless open houses and patiently listened as we went back and forth on our “must-haves” and “nice-to-haves”. She always put our priorities first, but at the same time ensured that our focus was never lost. There was never an indication of pressure tactics to get the sale done.
She has an eye for what the undervalued assets are in an inflated market. When we put in the offer for the house, she championed our case by highlighting our interest and our love for the house.
We recommend Carolyn without any qualification to anyone looking to buy a house in the area. Her local knowledge and her skills make her the “Number One” in our books.”

“If you are considering selling or purchasing a home in Belmont, Cambridge, Watertown and other nearby suburbs, Carolyn Boyle of is your agent! She is the best in terms of integrity, knowledge of real estate, negotiating skills, ability to effectively deal with clients, and getting the best deal for her clients.
Carolyn was “spot on” when it came to the two most important elements of selling a home: condition of the property and price. In terms of setting the price, she recommended an initial price, with the expectation that we would fine-tune it as we went along, keeping an eye on any changes in the market. In the end, the price she recommended when the house was ready to be listed was just right, as we had 5 offers on the property within 2 weeks, and we were delighted with the final sales price. Throughout the process, Carolyn continuously impressed us with her expertise, her recommendations, her diligence, her humor, and her never-ending hard work on our behalf.
An additional bonus to us was Carolyn’s strength in interior design and color. We were having every interior surface of the house painted, and she provided us with the beautiful, subtle colors that sell houses today–something we could not have done on our own. The staging, which we contracted with Carolyn to do, was tasteful and just the right amount to enable potential buyers to see a warm, livable home without being overwhelmed by someone else’s decor. As you can see, I truly think Carolyn is the best real estate agent you can find to be an advocate for you in the sale or purchase of a home.”
Suzanne and Francis B. – December 2015
Carolyn Boyle is wonderful. When my brother, sister and I had to sell our family home in Belmont we were fortunate enough to have Carolyn as our realtor. I simply can’t imagine a better one. Her guidance, commitment and willingness to go above and beyond made what could have been a difficult, exhausting experience (none of us live in the area) into one that was fun. That’s right! We had fun because Carolyn was all-in. Not only was she accessible she also demonstrated an ability to know just what upgrades were needed to freshen the house up while at the same time preserving the best features that one may only find in an older home.
I strongly recommend you hire Carolyn as your real estate agent. You will be very glad you did!
Mary Ellen T. – November 2015
“With Carolyn’s expert guidance and limitless energy at our disposal we were able to ready our house for market at the right time, for the right price, looking like a buyer’s dream. Carolyn’s ability to bring out the best in a home through her attention to detail is unparalleled. Working together, we refreshed and staged the house beautifully and by the time our doors opened for our first (and only) open house, it had never looked better, as the many offers indicated. She kept us focused on our priorities and never let us lose sight of our goals. Based on her thorough research of our particular housing market, we set timing goals and pricing strategies that were spot on, and with her constant encouragement, we exceeded all expectations with regards to time on market and sale price of our home. Can’t thank you enough, Carolyn!”
Elaine and Bruce A. – November 2015
“Carolyn helped us sell our house during the middle of one of the coldest and snowiest winters in recent history. She introduced me to someone who was able to help me sort through decades of accumulated belongings. She posted a beautiful video of our house online, with music, which certainly helped our house sell as quickly as it did.
Most important was the research she did on house values in our neighborhood. Thus our house was listed at a reasonable price, and sold sooner than many other houses that had been on the market for many months.”
