    Rich Allen

    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    My goal is to help you right-size your home - from first time to up-sizing to down-sizing to simply right-sizing - I'll work hard to help you get the best results!

    I am an energetic, friendly and detail oriented professional with over 30 years experience in both private real estate investing (owner, renter, tenant, landlord, investor) across 6 states and as an executive in the high tech software industry responsible for negotiating multimillion deals and representing billion dollar companies.

    In my off time, I enjoy playing music (Djembe and Guitar mostly), beach vacations with my wife and 3 daughters, hiking, biking, museums, eating out and walking our dogs!

    I relocated to Boston and Rich was incredibly thoughtful in helping me learn about the different neighborhoods as I began my search. He also invested a significant amount of time in driving me to different neighborhoods and ultimately helped me find great spot. Thank you Rich!!

    Rich was very accommodating and went out of his way to ensure I was able to find housing during my relocation trip. He built relationships with property managers and helped ensure I got my top pick.

    Diane gave Rich 5 stars out of 5
    Rich was referred to me by a neighbor and I am thankful I followed up on the referral. Rich was supportive throughout process of getting property ready for sale and once it was ready used multiple platforms to advertise my townhouse. Once listed on MLS I was "under agreement" within three days! So happy with result,

    Rich was extremely helpful while helping us buy a home in a tough seller's market! He got us exactly what we wanted in a town we love and kept us right in budget. We needed a lot of hand-holding throughout the buying process and he was always available to answer our questions and make the process as smooth as possible for us. We would highly recommend for anyone to hire Rich to find their dream home!

    Rich has been a true pleasure to work with. He's extremely responsive and really listens to his clients wants and needs. Rich was able to get me in to see multiple places on a very short notice, which is key in today's very fast moving market. As a first time home buyer, Rich has answered every question I've had in detail and made sure I've felt comfortable every step of the way. I would highly recommend Rich to anyone looking to buy.

    Nicholas gave Rich 5 stars out of 5
    We met first met Rich at our very first open house. From day one we felt that Rich puts his clients first. The time and attention he puts into our search for our home has been nothing but fantastic. Rich is very knowledgeable and helpful with answering all our questions. As first time homeowners we felt overwhelmed by the process, but Rich was there to reassure us and make the process as easy as possible. Rich was available any day or time that we needed him and we cant thank him and his team enough. We would highly recommend Rich to anyone looking for their next dream home.

    Rich is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in our area. He explained the process of selling my home better than any realtor I've had in the past. Rich went above and beyond what most realtors would have done for me.

    Ed gave Rich 5 stars out of 5
    Rich was great to work with on our sale. He is reliable and on top of the details. Even though he represented the buyer in this case, we appreciated his professionalism in working through the deal fairly and promptly with us. We would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a top-notch agent.
    Abhijit gave Rich 5 stars out of 5
    Rich found our house before it got listed and closed the deal in an hour or so. Prior to that he gave us unconditional time running across neighborhoods and even towns in this crazy market. He can build a very good rapport with anyone including seller and their agent instantly. We will always be thankful to him and hope to do business with him again in future.
