"Knowledgeable and goes the extra mile in verifying things as needed. I would recommend him again." - Buyer, Allston
"I would like to thank Brian McCarthy for all the help he gave me in finding a home that was within my price range and my geographic choice. He was new to the Newton area in terms of selling a home to an older single mother with dogs. Under these special curcumstances he gave me extra help in finding information on schools, crime and neighborhoods. I did refer a friend to Zip and she too found her agent to be very willing to help her in her search for a new home. With the emphasis on customer service that Brian has, he should do well in his career. Thank you."

Although the property seemed abandoned, the sellers were interested in selling. It took some time and effort to complete the deal. Good job Brian!!" - Jack Ahern
"Brian McCarthy is a true professional. He walked us through every step of the way and was always there to answer any of our questions.

We will recommend him and ZipRealty to our family and friends." - Kara Madaus Metraw
"Brian McCarthy was an ideal agent to work with, both in terms of his knowledge of the purchasing process and in his ability to communicate that knowledge at every step through a laid-back, low pressure style but always in a very competent manner. As we narrowed our choices and sorted through the market, Brian was very good at understanding our parameters and provided resources and practical considerations which positively influenced our decisions. We especially appreciated his attention to detail and responsiveness in the negotiation process, which was far easier than anticipated as a result of his help. We really could not have been happier at the level of service provided by Brian." - Christopher Muskopf

"Brian was a great agent! My husband and I recently bought our first home in Boston. Throughout our search and eventual purchase, Brian was consistently responsive to emails and phone calls. Since we were living in DC throughout the process, his constant communication was invaluable to us. We ran into a few issues with our appraisal and with our negotiations with the sellers; however, Brian took all surprises and changes in stride. He was quick to find the best solution and always worked with our best interests in mind." - Catherine Abella
"Brian was great! It was a torturous process with the lender being slow and super stringent on mortgage applications due to the economy and the seller was hard to deal with many times, but Brian helped out in every possible way. He was always reliable, always friendly, and always proactive about his efforts to help in any way possible. I highly recommend his services and look forward to staying in touch with him." - Jonathan G. Wu
"I wanted to purchase my property before I moved to Boston. Since I was in the military, I was not sure of my exact moving date. Brian was very flexible and made sure that he was available to show me multiple properties on the date that I was available. Brian represented me well and ensured my interests were properly relayed to the seller. Brian recommended my home inspector as well as my attorney, and they also did a great job. The home inspector found several discrepancies, and Brian worked with the seller to ensure all of the issues were corrected. Brian also conducted the final walk-through for me and helped me setup my utilities. His knowledge of the Boston area was also very beneficial. Brian directed me to areas which suited to my lifestyle and my expectations. This was my first time using Zip Realty, and I will definitely recommend this site to another person." - Sunil Nair

We appreciate the gift and once again thank you for your capable assistance." - Buyer

"Brian McCarthy was utterly professional in all his work during the four months it took for me to go from first day looking to new condo owner. He never showed any lack of patience, he never pushed me, and in the end, he helpred me stay calm enough to see the process through to a happy conclusion. He's really the best.

I can't say enough good things about Jim! " - Barbara Simkowski, Dorchester

"I am a first time homebuyer and needed a lot of guidance through this process. Brian was able to provide expert guidance and advice to me. He was easy to contact via phone or email and had a very flexible schedule which fit well with my schedule." - Buyer
"Words cannot describe how thankful we are that we had Brian working with us to purchase our home. Not only did he provide most valuable experience and expertise, but he took personal ownership of our home buying experience. When we were getting discouraged and felt like we would not find the a house for us within our price range, Brian assured us that we would find one - and he made it clear that it would not just be any house, but it would be the right house, one we would make a home. Well, he was absolutely right - with his guidance, we learned a lot about the home buying process and the real estate market. But he guides in a very patient and relaxed way, and never pushes unsolicited advice or opinions on us. He always offers up useful (not obvious) information and provides advice that is valuable and seemed to us accurate whenever we asked for it. Brian is extremely patient and knowledgeable, and accommodating to our schedules. Not only this, but he never put any pressure on us or did we even feel a hint of this from him. Also, Brian was able to put us in touch with the right people at the right time, who all guided us through this process - the "team" that we had assisting us in this very stressful endeavor, and worked extremely hard to make sure that we closed on time in spite of several external factors that were working against us. We can not say enough about Brian and our appreciation to him, except thank you. We would and will recommend Brian to anyone who wants to buy a house, especially those who would like to do so with the guidance of someone who is very knowledgeable, patient, down to earth, not-pushy, and even relaxing during this process. If you don't want to be pressured, and you want honesty and integrity, ask for Brian McCarthy." - Daniel Egerton, Weymouth
