Dear Kim and Christine - we are settled into our new home exactly one month today and we could not be happier.  Shelly and the Costello Realty team - we cannot thank you enough!  

We had found this home within minutes of it posting online and contacted Shelly immediately (We had worked with her on selling our previous home a few years ago and she has worked with our son and family on 2 home purchases and 1 home sale - all excellent results!).  

Shelly responded right away - even though it was early in the morning. She knew we were flying up from FL for only 2 days to see houses and set up an appt right away.  We had been pre-approved and ready to close on a house within 30 days.  So we were anxious to find our "dream home" on this trip back up to MA/RI.  Shelly made everything easy, less stressful, and answered my many questions and concerns.  Shelly and the seller's realtor were constantly in touch, streamlined communications and got all the paperwork, inspections, etc done in an extremely quick and efficient manner -  and we literally closed in 30 days.  It was an exciting day and everything went smoothly!  Thank you, Shelly!

We highly recommend Shelly and the Costello Realty team!

Good Morning,

I am writing to let you know about our incredible realtor, John Maloney.   We were selling my mothers home in norwood, she had lived in the home for 61 years.  Great home, good bones, but lots of updating needed.    We had dealt with a prior realtor for 6 months and did not yield a sale.  The minute John came into the picture, we were all so impressed with Johnís knowledge, energy and the overriding sense you get from him that, well, -he will get the job done.   

What really impressed us (by us, I mean myself, my brother and sister) was Johnís sense of urgency whether it be thru phone call, texts or emails, I ALWAYS knew what was going on and what was going to happen.  He kept us energized, calmed our fears and kept the ball rolling.    As you can see, I cannot say enough John and about how grateful we were to have him as our realtor, and in a very short time, he got our house sold.   He even managed to sell it just prior to our mums 95th birthday.  What a present that was!  

I will always spread the word to anyone who I hear is selling a home, that if you are looking for a good realtor, you will find none better.    Thank you for everything John, we are very grateful to you and all your time and efforts you took into making this sale happen.

Janine is extremely client oriented, working tirelessly to understand their expectations and to help clients determine what truly matters to them in their home search. Janine is creative and patient but not passive, and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a partner in the home buying process. 

Take care,
Janine Bianchi

Janine recently represented me as a buyers agent. Whenever we met, Janine came prepared with information about the house I was buying and I felt confident that I was very well informed about the property prior to purchase. She made herself available to meet with me whenever requested around my schedule. Janine was knowledgeable about all aspects of the transaction and guided me through all phases of the purchase process. Working with Janine was a pleasure as she was knowledgeable , responsive, professional and had my best interests covered.

I met Ro while my mom and I were looking at a townhouse in Bellingham. After that day I knew I would never need another realtor again.  Her honesty, integrity and professionalism were apparent from the moment I met her.  She was with me every step of the way!  
I NEVER worried or got nervous through what should have been a very nerve wracking process and that was because of Ro.    I am a single mom and this was the first house I have ever bought on my own.  It was a Huge deal for me and I could not have asked for better support than that of  Ro.   ANYTHING I asked for or needed she took care of.  EVERY person she connected me with, from my mortgage lender to the house inspector was wonderful- I did not have to wonder if I was hiring the right person for those things because I knew Ro would not steer me wrong.   I trusted her from the moment I met her and that is not easy to do when dealing with real estate, money and nerves!     She is easy going and never gets rattled.  

 I cant say enough good things about her.  I would recommend her to anyone looking for property, she is absolutely wonderful.   I am so lucky to have met her and call her my friend.

"My husband and I were a bit nervous about the process of buying a home since we were first-time homebuyers and rented in the city for years.  Doug made the process simple and low-stress from the start.  He helped us find and tour homes and even helped us know what types of questions to ask of the seller.  When we landed on the home we ended up buying, there were some ups and downs in the closing process, but we always felt like Doug had our back and was taking care of us.  We feel lucky to have worked with a real estate agent we could trust from the start.  Thank you!"

Selling a home is never easy; when it is an estate sale, things can get complicated. Our agent, Janine Bianchi, was a perfect match for us. She gave us solid advice and recommendations; walked us through every step of the tedious process of preparing the house for sale, gave clear instructions onthe amultitude of tasks the seller must do, e.g. smoke / CO2 detectors, and followed up to offer her assistance. Janine always had a positive, upbeat attitude even when the estate parties had very different opinions. She maintained the peace!!! I consider myself most fortunate to have worked with Janine; Costello Realty is equally fortunate to have such a hard working, wonderfully knowledgeable person on their team.

"It was so nice to meet you this year, although under not so great circumstances. I can't thank you enough for the kindness you showed my mother while she was trying to sell my Gram's house. You are amazing at what you do, especially in how patient you are and how well you managed multiple stakeholders to a successful sale. I hope someday to refer people to you although I don't have many ties in Franklin."
With Thanks,
