We had never thought We could sell my house such quick and we had never though we could sell my house such good price. All these were our dreams which we could not imagine before. Now it becomes true and it was Abe's work. we don't know how to appreciate him but we really appreciate him, appreciate his great great effort! Abe's confident and methodical make us very comfortable and Abe's professional knowledge and skills make things very efficient progress. We want to say that Abe is the best!

Abe recently sold our home in Braintree- he was great. Calm, patient and easy to work with. He went out of his way to ensure we got the best price for our home and to ensure that we were satisfied with the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. We were very appreciative.

Abe was a great asset to us as we shopped for our new home- he was patient and a great resource. He helped to make the process easier and less stressful. I would recommend him to anyone shopping for or selling their home!

As first-time home buyers, we needed a lot of advice that we could trust. Abe was very helpful in answering all of our questions and lending his experience to help us with the process. We found our house and are happily moved in!

Abe's knowledge, wisdom, and experience definitely contributed to a completely satisfactory first-time home buying experience. He was our realtor, but he did not pressure us, nor did he rush us into purchasing any home. He looked at the homes and reviewed it based on how would it fit our needs. He would occasionally give helpful advise about the kind of repairs that would need to be done; he was also gently honest about homes that he felt did not fit our desires exactly. When we found our eventual new home, he looked over every thing with us, and came to the same conclusion that the place surely fit many of our needs. He walked us through the whole process and reassured us when we were nervous or unsure. Just hearing from Abe to not worry about certain details helped a lot as he knew we were first time home buyers. He came to the home inspection and later offered to arrange visits to the home before the closing so we could take measurements and prep for our eventual purchase and move. Overall, Abe was awesome and will be our first go to guy should the time ever come for us to begin looking for a new home or if we know friends who are looking to purchase a home as well.

Abe was OK until it came time to put an offer in on our home. He was timely and available when we needed him to be. He coordinated seeing homes that we found by searching the Zip website, but never suggested anything else based on what we were looking for. It was up to us to find the homes that we wanted to see ourselves. Abe tried to talk us out of asking the seller to put some money towards closing costs and was certainly not agressive when it came time to negotiate. Its a good thing that we were able to advocate for ourselves! The same was true following the home inspection, when there were things that needed to be taken care of by the seller. Abe was adiment that we did not ask for anything. We did anyway and the seller agreed to cover some of the problems. Nice guy, but he didn't seem to be on our side at all!

Abe took time to get to know my family's desires and needs. He has a great depth of knowledge about the various towns in the greater Boston area. He was very patient with us, as we explored many different towns. He was a good coach and offered wise perspectives during the search. In the end we found and closed on a great house for our family in metro-west. I would recommend Abe to anyone looking for real help in the housing market. THANKS ABE!

This might not be entirely Abe's fault, but I had been working with Al who vanished off the face of the earth with no word even after we had been working together for several months. Al was personable, where Abe was not. Abe was there for the walkthrough and the closing.He was totally uneccessary for both. At the walkthrough he pointed out to me things that I had reviewed at the initial visit to the property, the inspection, and subsequent visits. His asking where the laundry was and what condition the property was in minutes before the closing was completely ill timed and inappropriate. It gave me the impression that he thought I was ill informed or too stupid to have asked important questions about the property until the last minute. I believe very strongly that I was treated this way because 1.) I am a single woman purchasing property and 2.) because I am under 30. After months of my looking and researching available real estate, I didn't appreciate being treated like a complete amateur by someone who had known me for approximately 3 minutes. Abe stepping in at the last minute made me feel like my listing agent fee was going to someone who had not helped me at all. I would not have worked with an agent at all and kept the cash if I had known then how this transaction would have gone. I will not recommend this service to friend. You're lucky you have such a great website. Also, I am rating Abe at a 3 for many of the following prompts because I have no context to rate him seeing that he did not help me until the last possible second of this transaction.

Throughout the process, Abe helped us by pointing subtle things about the houses we saw. He also did not pressure us into making hasty decisions. Overall, I would highly recommend Abe to my friends and family.

Abe was a pleasure to work with as first time home buyers. We were taking our time looking for our first home and he was very patient and helpful with advice about the local market and honest assessments of the properties we were viewing. We never felt pushed to make a quicker decision and that helped make our relationship with Abe very relaxed and friendly. Abe was very responsive to our requests for additional information and last minute showings of newly found properties. He was even more attentive and helpful during the purchase and closing process. The anecdote we share most about our experience with Abe is how he sat with our 7 month old son and entertained him through all of the closing paperwork. Abe is a very warm, genuine person and he's well informed about many aspects of real estate in Massachusetts. In short, we had a great experience with Abe and would happily use him again or recommend him to friends and family.

Abe is a very patient agent. We went through an exhaustive search looking for the right kind of property and neighborhood. We were also looking at buy vs. build decisions. Our search process lasted for about a year. While many brokers would have dropped their interest in us, Abe never waivered in servicing our needs. Requests to view properties were promptly executed. We must have looked at over 50 properties during this period. During the proposal process, Abe was great about working with us and the other agents to facilitate the process. There were times when talks should have broken down due to each side's beliefs about the appropriateness of their position, but Abe helped talk everyone through their thoughts. We got the right deal for our home. We are very pleased that Abe has worked with us this past year. We wouldn't have been able to purchase our new property without him.

Abe was excellent. I cant say it any plainer than that. He was very helpful and, honestly, this would have been a long and confusing process without his guidance. I have already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so. He is an asset to any prospective buyer (or seller) and most importantly, is an asset to Zip and hope he is treated as such.

Abe Hantout was - by far - the most professional, intelligent and caring real estate agent I've ever encountered. I plan on writing a letter to Zip Realty CEO Eric Danziger but until then, this comment section will have to suffice. I called Mr. Hantout to ask for his services. He promptly showed me a few places, but I really wanted to find a unit in the building where I was currently renting. Previously, I had made an offer on a unit and it was accepted only to have the seller back out. I told Abe about this experience and he said to call him next time "even if there is no commission involved, I will go to the open house with you or speak to the seller. I want to help you get the place you want." When a unit did come up in my building, I called Abe but told him about it. He offered to come with me to the open house even if there was no commission. He didn't want me to lose this place too. Well, Abe helped me get the condo I was waiting for. Fortunately, there was a commission, or else I would have had to compensate Abe out of my own pocket ??? he was that good. He was so professional and attended to every question I had. I called him several times a day and he never seemed annoyed. He also made everything easy. When I needed to sign the P&S but had to visit my cousin in the hospital, he came to the hospital to get my signature. Abe is the consummate professional and should be promoted tomorrow! As long as Abe is in Massachusetts, I will never buy a piece of property without him. What's more, I've told all of my friends that if you need a realtor - Abe is the only choice! I should also add that I'm a very hard-to-please consumer and have high standards. I'm not sure I've ever experienced such great customer service as I did with Abe.
