"I am so thankful that someone recommended Holly and Steve to me when I decided to sell my condo. They clearly understood the business, did solid research before setting a price, made recommendations, but always assured me that they could work with whatever I decided. If I was unable to meet with a contractor, one of them was on it. They often took care of issues before I knew to ask about them, and met challenges head-on. The results exceeded my expectations, and I can’t praise them enough!"

Holly and Steve were a great team in helping us to find a buyer for an estate property in just a matter of weeks. They priced the home at a fair market value and timed the offers to generate a competitive environment that resulted in a premium well over the asking price. Their attention to detail, common sense advice and commitment to excellence made the sales experience so much easier than expected."

“Holly was truly great to work with and I would highly recommend her services to anyone. As a first-time buyer, I was very skeptical of the whole process, but Holly was there to guide me every step of the way. She was incredibly responsive and patient over our one year-plus search, and remained so personable and approachable throughout. Her knowledge of the area was second to none, and she helped us find a home that exceeded our expectations in a very challenging market. I consider her a trusted advisor and hope to work with her again one day. Thanks again, Holly!”

"Holly Ritchie was simply amazing in helping us buy our first home. When we started the house hunting, we were unclear of the type of house we want and the town we want to live in. Holly worked diligently with us during the early phase to help us figure out what we wanted and to narrow down the town and type of house that will meet our needs. She spent countless hours taking us to different towns - Lexington, Winchester, Wellesley and Weston and showing us different styles of home - Colonial, Ranch, Split. Once we got clarity on what we want, she marketed our demands to our Realtors in the town to find a match.
"We finally liked one home, but it was priced 15% more than our budget. She encouraged us to bid for the home. She did the background work in finding the motivation level of the seller and helped us negotiate so that we get the home at a price point within our budget. She also ensured that our closing went without glitch. She was very calm and patient during the six months we worked with her.
"We clearly would not have been able to find our dream house without Holly’s help."

“If you are looking for a friendly, well-networked agent for the western suburbs look no further than Holly Ritchie. My wife and I worked with Holly to relocate to the area when a job change took our family of four to Greater Boston. We were blown away by Holly's knowledge of the towns west of Boston and her network with agents throughout the region. Holly helped us set reasonable expectations given the adjustment we would need to make moving in from out of state. And she truly understood how to balance our priorities with our budget. Her understanding of the local school districts, personalities of the different towns, and the commute into Boston was something we came to trust and rely on over the course of working with her. But more than anything, working with Holly was fun and comfortable.
“Buying a house is stressful. Holly is extremely patient and had a great sense of when we needed a laugh and when we needed to focus and be ready to act quickly. I would highly recommend working with Holly.”

“We had a wonderful experience with Holly during our not-so-easy home buying process. She was responsive, efficient, knowledgeable, and most importantly, always on our side. She also recommended a good team of people including the attorney, mortgage broker and the inspector who are all so wonderful and helped make this happen. We can't thank her enough and we'll definitely work with her again in a heartbeat.”
