From the moment I contacted Oren, I always felt like a special customer. He has great friendly personality. He was my realtor, friend and adviser for everything related to the house. I am first time buyer inexperienced very picky customer. With any question I had I was contacting Oren. He was always available or called me back right away and gave me great advises due to his huge knowledge and experience. He knew everything - what to expect in the houses built in specific year, how to read between the lines when house is for sale. How to repair what and where, where to save money and where it worth to invest and much more, practically everything came along - either during looking for house, financing, exception, documents preparation. He always took time to listen to all my questions, read and respond my emails and after talking to him I felt much confident. I made a great decision contacting Oren and very happy with the house. There are only 5 stars in review, but he deserves 10. I will definitely contact Oren if would need his service again and I will recommend him to everybody I know who is going to buy a house.

What impressed me most about Oren was how on the top of everything he was. He helped me find a home in a very competitive area, and he was always quick getting me appointments for showings, returning calls and getting paper work done. He's a person who gets things done! Another great thing about Oren is he's very supportive, and puts no pressure on you no matter how many houses you turn down / don't like. I felt he truly wanted me to find the perfect place. I will definitely refer Oren to others who are looking for an agent.

Oren is an Ah-MAZING real estate agent. We were first time home buyers and he was very patient in explaining the process to us. He answered any questions that we had, any time. This patience also translates to his professionalism. We were very slow shoppers, but Oren never pressured us. He worked with us the way we wanted. During the search, Oren did a diligent job in looking for comparable homes that were sold. We realized (through Oren) that some listings on the market are just ludicrous in their expectations. We feel that Oren was very helpful in negotiating a fair price. Speaking of negotiating, his attention to detail separates him from other real estate agents. We closed in the middle of winter, but Oren helped us negotiate a full tank of oil. At first, I didn't think it was a big deal, but then I heard my friend's stories about running out of oil and having their pipes freeze, or having to pay for a partial tank of oil at closing (surprise!). We didn't have to worry about that because of his dedication to helping his clients in every little way. Dedication? He made himself available to us on his HONEYMOON!

Oren is the absolute best!!! There are not enough words to describe how wonderful he was to work with! I had never purchased a home before so I was new to the game! He was patient. He was extremely knowledgeable. He was so helpful. His guidance was excellent. I felt like I could call him at any time and ask him questions. The home I wanted to buy was for my sister to live in so she would not be homeless. Oren understood this from the beginning and his concern for us was amazing. He made me feel like I was buying a million dollar home! I will recommend him to everyone I know in Massachusetts who wants to buy or sell a home.

Oren was an excellent agent to work with. He was always responsive to our questions and concerns, and kept us informed during each step of the home-buying process. He was dedicated to finding the right home for us throughout the process, and never put any pressure on us to make a decision we weren't comfortable with. We strongly recommend Oren as an agent, and will most certainly contact him again in the future for our next move.

Oren was absolutely awesome, and I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home (I used him in both instances!) He was more than accommodating, and if I ever had a question throughout the process, he always made himself available to talk, and was excellent at resolving any issues that came up. Oren was able to sell my place within days of it going up on the market, and I know that this wouldn't have been possible without his expertise!

Oren made the selling process simple for me and my family. He understood the dynamics of the market and figured out what we needed to do for a quick, effective sale.

Oren went out of his way to help me in any way possible to be prepared for closing. He was very thorough in his explanations of what needed to be done, and took it upon himself to make some calls that were needed. His expertise in the home-selling process, his suggestions of how to prepare the house, and his execution of his duties were all top-notch and on the mark.

My wife and I were first time home buyers and Oren helped guide us through every step, from researching homes to closing day. He was always extremely professional and willing to go the extra mile to help us no matter what we were looking for help on. His ability to work with us to find the right home, guide us through negotiations, the lending process and every other step along the way was both both invaluable but always met with a smile on his face. His willingness to give candid opinions was always appreciated. Although we had not purchased a home in the past, Oren was recommended to us and we have no problem recommending him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

I loved working with Oren. I had been looking for quite a while, during which time the home search sometimes took a back seat to other priorities for a few weeks or months. Oren did not pressure me. If he hadn't heard from me in a while, he would check in periodically just to see how things were going. At times when I was very focused on the search, Oren was right there. Very responsive and accommodating - often coordinating visits at the last minute if needed. If I called or emailed him, I'd hear back from him immediately. He also took the time to understand what I was looking for, and made helpful recommendations. In particular, he was very good at letting me know if I was looking in a realistic price range based on my requirements. Ultimately, he helped me find the right home, which I now call mine. Great guy all around.

Oren stood with me through the ups and downs of a long home search, always providing his knowledge and expertise when I needed it. His contacts were especially helpful as we began the buying process (home inspection, etc) and conducted themselves with the same high level of professionalism that Oren brings to his work everyday. Oren was always very responsive and easy to get in contact with when any questions arose. As a first time home buyer, all of these things were invaluable to me! I would recommend Oren to any one of my friends or family.

I was confident that he would do as he said in the beginning that he would get me closer to family and friends and he has. I would highly recommend him .

My husband and I were moving from out of state and Oren was in frequent contact and made sure that every time we traveled to MA that we saw many homes that met our expectations. He was professional, friendly and helpful and when we did find the home we wanted to buy he did and amazing job negotiating the best deal for us. He recommended a lawyer and mortgage company to make the closing as easy as possible and followed up even after the sale to help us with helpful suggestions regarding local businesses I the area. I can not say enough positive things about Oren! He made the home buying experience an enjoyable one and will be recommending him to anyone we know looking to buy or sell their home in the future!

Oren, Has no strengths that I can check off from below. He had to be constantly reminded to follow up on open issues that I had. Also was not one to be proactive and let me know what follows and what would be the next steps. His communication style is confusing , verbose and "beat around the bush". Trust me you don't want him as your seller, or buyer agent.

Oren has a contagious smile and an awesome manner that takes away 50% of the stress that weighs one down when purchasing a home. He is upbeat all the time and that makes you not want to drag your own feet through the process. I think Oren must carry a "book of answers" with him because whenever you ask him a question, his extensive knowledge provides you an instant answer. He is smart and easy going. He is a very helpful person and you can tell this helpfulness comes naturally to him. You can tell Oren loves being a realtor. He goes way out of his way, far and beyond to help out or to find you information on something. Oren made it extremely easy for me to buy a home. The process no doubt was very stressful but I can only imagine how much worse it could have been if Oren had not been there walking side by side helping me through. I hope Zip Realty knows what a GEM this guy is. I would recommend him anytime to anyone looking to buy a home. Personally, if I were to sell this house in the future to buy another home, I would want Oren to be my realtor again. He has set the bar very high for his peers and I am not sure if I would find someone more knowledgeable, upbeat and helpful like Oren. If I do then we sure hope he or she comes with the same contagious smile!! Thank you so much Oren for everything and for every little effort you put into my home purchase. You are very much appreciated and it has been an immense pleasure working with you. God Bless!

My fiancé and I worked with Oren this summer to buy our first home. As first time buyers, we weren’t particularly educated about the home search process, but with Oren’s help we learned a tremendous amount, not only about the steps of the process but also about our local market and how to navigate open houses, bidding wars, and much more. We had a very difficult search process given the turbulent market, rising mortgage rates and budget constaints, and at times stress was high, but Oren was at all times patient and professional, very easy to relate to, understanding, and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him, and would recommend him to our own friends and family. We hope to work with him again someday!

My husband and I were first time homebuyers. It was very clear from the beginning that Oren is exactly what you want in a realtor. Highly knowledgeable, knows the ins and outs of the entire process to include mortgage and closing. It was an extremely easy process and Oren made sure that our valuable time was used most effectively. Oren also has an abundance of resources – lenders, attorneys, ect making this a seamless process beginning to end. I was extremely impressed with Oren’s availability and how quickly he returned calls, texts, or emails. He is always there for you and you will never feel neglected. I will use Oren again not only to buy but also to sell any real estate (should the time arise). He has my highest possible recommendation. Do yourself a favor and call Oren.

We were rookies, so Oren answered the silly questions with the same attention and detail as the serious ones. He was completely thorough, honest and extremely knowledgeable.

Oren contacted us after we browsed a few homes from ZR. We are first time home buyers and we did not know anything about the whole journey to buy a home. Oren was very smooth, meaning no pressure to sign or agree on anything. He first gave us some tips on what to do when visiting open houses without even knowing whether we would work with him or not. After talking to other agents, he advised us so well that we decided to work with him. Oren was meticulous at guiding us through the many steps of the buying-a-home process. His references were excellent. For instance the mortgage company that Oren referred to us, was very quick and precise on what to do and we got a pre-approved letter in less than 2 hours from first contact. I know it may sound like '… you fool, they are working together and making money …' and that's the point, you want to work with people who have established a trust relationship and who share the same ethics. We're not fooled it's a business - we all have to make money one way or another - but Oren and his references are sharing business values that we find important: respect of us as people, clarity, transparency of the process and overall efficiency to avoid wasting our valuable time and money. It was comforting to know that Oren was always available by email or phone text messages - our preferred ways - or by phone when things needed to be tight up like the offer, P&S, closing, etc. He uses emails, text messages, electronic signatures, PDF documents, all the good Internet tools, which made the process very efficient without useless driving downtown to sign and read a document - they're plenty of those time sink items during the process and Oren takes advantage of Internet to remove them. We closed in 4 weeks after we first saw the house and Oren was key to this success. Oren is The Person with a great positive and help mind attitude that you want to partner with to feel taking care of the right way. After buying the home Oren did not just disappear, Oren is actually helping and advising us with questions we might have as home-owners. So with that said, it's just normal that I highly recommend Oren to any person looking for a place to live, he is for me a reference on how I think business should be done in real estate.

We were first time home-buyers and really quite naive to the process and steps involved. Once Oren stepped in everything was smooth. He has a wonderful collection of inspectors, general contractors, and really an entire team that can help you plan everything you need and want with your home-buying process. The fact of the matter is most people enter the process thinking that whatever property they decide on should provoke a "Asking price minus 5%" or whatever. Oren was able to pull from local history and ensure that our first and last bid on our dream home was the winning bid. We couldn't be happier!

My wife and I were in the process of buying our first home, we were referred to Zip by a friend of ours and we couldn't be happier with our experience, thanks to Oren. We looked at a number of properties,and worked our way are way through putting offers on two different condos. Oren provided us with clear, concise advice, acting in a manner that was clearly in our best interest. He provided us with sound negotiating strategy for the making of offers, return offers, and other strategies for different situations which arose. Ultimately, we ended up finding our perfect place and Oren again helped us negotiating and working through the entire process with some "interesting" challenges with the sellers, he advocated for us and smoothed an otherwise potentially rocky road. Having been a first time home-buyer, Oren helped us through the unique challenges that can arise, answering all questions we had about the process and even giving great referrals for home inspector, attorneys and financial institutions, several for each. He exceeded our expectations, we would highly recommend Oren to anybody in the market whether its your first home purchase or your 10th, his professionalism and knowledgeability is exactly what a realtor should be. Thanks Oren! J + D

It was my pleasure to work with and get to know Oren. He is truly a professional! I admired his patience with me. His knowledge of homes and the process with which it would take to buy one. He never pushed homes on me and was sure to understand my needs and show me appropriate homes. He made himself available to me at a moments notice. If I saw sometrhing I wanted to see on line, you could be sure that I would get in to see it ASAP. He was always just a phone call away. If I got a voice mail, I was sure to receive a call back within 15 minutes. Not only was he a good real estate agent, I felt like a truly made a new friend.

Oren was excellent. He was ready to take a phone call at any moment and he did everything he could to facilitate the home buying process. He connected us with a home inspector and with an attorney who were both similarly knowledgeable and responsive. Oren made me feel like I was his only client, although I'm sure he had other matters that required his attention. He helped demystify the different elements of what turned out to be a complicated transaction. He checked in regularly and was a strong advocate. I highly recommend him.

We had the VERY BEST experience with Oren and would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional. We had a very difficult sale and Oren handled it with Professionalism, Grace, Patience and Dedication. I can honestly say if we had a different agent the deal may not have happened. We can not thank Oren enough and will use him everytime a real estate need arises in our family.

I have worked with Oren for about 6 months looking at different homes. He has been very generous with his talents and his time. The road to buying was bumpy working will sellers who expected the moon. Oren's talent guided us and the sellers, through the process with grace and professionalism. His energy is incredible. Oren is dedicated to his clients and his attention to detail is incredible. He has patience with new buyers and NEVER makes you feel that your questions are silly. I would highly recommend Oren to anyone searching for a new home

Oren was beyond amazing. I really could not have asked for a better realtor to guide me through the sometimes bumpy process. Oren made sure to proactively check in on me and make sure things were progressing. He dealt with a very tough seller's agent curteously and professionally and always made himself available to me when I needed it - including negotiating the offer by phone at 11 pm at night. Oren can anticipate his client's needs and is there not only to fix problem's as they arise, but prevent them in the first place. Oren went so far as to stop by my workplace to collect my deposit check. I enthusiastically recommend him for anyone considering buying a home.

Hi Sean. Thanks for your feedback, and I understand your frustration. Please know that despite many calls to the listing agent, he has not responded to my inquiries or messages, and this is the only reason I have not been able to provide you any of the additional information that you requested. I should have called you back to tell you this, but I remained hopeful I was going to reach him, and get the information you desired. My apologies for not being more communicative. Thanks for helping remind me how important this at all times.

Oren is an awesome agent. He knows the real estate market and is very client friendly. He will go the extra mile for his client and makes the process much smoother. We looked at several houses with Oren and even had one we had to walk away from before we bought this one and Oren guided us through the process with ease He kept us get frustrated. He was always available and answered all questions professionally and with his friendly disposition. I would be my pleasure to recommend Oren to anyone buying or selling a house.

Oren was very good at helping us find houses that fit our profile in the neighborhoods we were looking in. In addition, he was very responsive, very positive, and very good at providing us with references for the assistance we needed: mortgage company, inspector, lawyer, contractor, electrical, water remediation, etc, and following up with them on our behalf as necessary, as we are moving from the other side of the country to Boston and not available locally to do this ourselves.He made the deal happen.

We worked with Oren to buy a new home. We were very pleased with the entire process, and would highly recommend him to family and friends. Oren impressed us from the beginning. He listened to everything that we said about what is & isn’t important to us in our home search; he noticed things that we mentioned that might some small to others, but to us were critical in finding the right house. Ultimately this led to finding and buying a house that we love. Oren is professional, enthusiastic, honest – he clearly has a passion for his work. He does what it talks to make the client happy – even if that means late night calls negotiating a price drop. We were very pleased with his negotiating skills and advice, and felt that he was looking out for us as his client. - Sue & Tim

Working with Oren was an enjoyable and knowledgeable experience. Oren asked me to look at my earning and expensive to evaluate what I could and couldn't afford. Once I realized what I wanted, needed and could afford; we both started looking for my new home. He answered all of questions I asked, told me what to expect while looking, let me decide on what would be a good fit for me. He made the process run as smooth as it could and guided me all the way to the close. He provides the best service imaginable and does is extremely well. If I ever decide in the future to purchase or sell my home, Oren would be the first name I would look up. I have already given his name to a few friends, co-worker and family member. Thank you for making this experience easier and less stressful than I thought it would be. Best of luck on all your future sales, I know there will be plenty of them. Sincerely, Bernice Rainey

Oren was recommended to us by a friend who had a good experience with him. He has a very good knowledge of local real estate, good communication skills and a good understanding of our needs. His biggest assets is his positive attitude. You can see that he enjoys his work and he takes pride in it. He would always respond to our phone calls and patiently discuss things over with us. He gives very honest opinions, not what we wanted to hear but what we needed to hear. This really helped us make the right decision. He is unfailingly polite and a very hard worker. He multitasks amazingly well. This whole process was very easy and stress-free because of him. Oren stayed with us thru out the whole process and made sure that we asked all the right questions. At some point, we stopped thinking of him as just our realtor and he became a friend. Our kids love him. We will recommend him to all our friends. Thank you Oren. - Anju & Raj

As a first time home buyer, we had very little understanding of what is involved in buying our first home. In fact, for a long time we thought it was out of the question. With Oren's guidance we were not only able to buy our first home, but we bought a home that far exceeded what we ever thought was in the cards. Oren's commitment and patience in helping and guiding us through each and every decision point was exceptional. He took the time to make sure we understood everything completely throughout the process. He was always available to talk things through, for as long as we needed, and impressed us with his undivided and attention both in the late hours of the weekend and throughout the work week. We feel confident that Oren's guidance was integral in getting us the most perfect house, and we are forever grateful for his guidance. Thank you Oren!!

I spoke to Oren over the phone a couple of years back when we started looking and he made an instant impression as an articulate, knowledgeable and patient person. We came across many other realtors at open houses over the next couple of years but that first impression stayed. So, when we got serious about making offers, we got back in touch with him. Ours was a very difficult transaction on a bank owned and Oren scored very highly on all aspects ..like helping us win a multi-offer bidding process on the house while on a Christmas vacation in Florida, providing excellent recommendations for mortgage bankers, home inspectors and attorneys, getting us credits from the bank on some of the work involved, working patiently with the bank's realtor on getting all issues resolved. Thanks Oren for guiding us all the way .... Very highly recommended ..

Buying a house, especially for the first-timers, is no joke. For us as first-time buyers, it was very overwhelming too. When buying a house, you never know what you are getting into. Most of the times, you feel like everyone is after your money. So, you have to have a realtor who can understand you and above all in whom you can fully trust. After searching for houses with other realtors, we finally found Mr. Oren through ZipRealty. From the day we met him, we knew that he suited us very well. It just felt right with him. He took a lot of time understanding what kind of house we were looking for. He was further available any day and time we requested him to show the potential matches. Whenever we had questions or need of help, you would be available to talk on the phone, even till midnight. Before we knew it, Oren had found our dreamed-home. Then, he helped in finding cheap, reliable home inspector and attorney. He even worked one-on-one with our mortgage officer to make sure everything would go smoothly. He took most of our responsibilities in his hands, so we did not have to do or travel much. Overall, he was very kind, patient, professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy individual. He seriously made buying a house so easy for us. In all, we thank him so much for his assistance, and I recommend Oren to anyone, especially to the first-time buyers. Oren knows his business very well, and more importantly, he personally connects with his clients and deeply cares for them. Go Oren!!!

During the year we changed our minds several times about what we wanted, which towns we wanted to look in and what our price range was. Through it all he continued to support us, give us great advice when needed, and reminded us as to what we had told him was important to us in a new home. Oren was not interested in selling us a house, he wanted to sell us a home and he did not give up or let us give up until we found our new home.

I am a Bermudian who has had a love for the Boston area since attending university there for six years. After returning to the Boston area several times a year for 15 years, I decided that it was time to purchase a residence there. I started my search on internet and utilized many site before a friend referred me to the Zip Realty site. I found the site to be extremely user friendly. I really depended on the information that I received from the site since the I conducted the majority of my search for condo online from Bermuda. I was quickly assigned my realtor, Oren Malka. Shortly after signing up, I received an email from Mr. Malka requesting additional information about my wants and needs. Mr. Malka understand and seemed extremely willing to be flexible. I travelled to the Boston area several times during process and Mr. Malka was always extremely accomodating and patient. I cannot recall how many condos Mr. Malka showed me during my first visit but he quickly learned the finer details of what I was looking for and was able to assist me in refine my search which led to better use of my very limited time. In October 2009, I was shown a brand new condo in Everett. I put in an offer and it was accepted. The inspection revealed a few minor problems and highlighted one problem that was very concerning to me. Mr. Malka was a champion in my corner. He made several calls to the sellers agent and tried to resolve this issue. Eventually, the sellers agent agreed to resolve the majority of the smaller issues but refused to acknowledge and rectify the issue that caused me significant concern. Mr. Malka provided me with the pros and cons of purchasing this unit and left me to make a decision. I decided to walk away from the deal and Mr. Malka expressed his understanding and pledged to continue to assist me in my search. After that experience, I was not confident in my decision to purchase a condo in Massachusetts and was seriously considering aborting my search. In February 2010, after visiting several condos, I became even more discouraged. Mr. Malka suggested that we revisit a condo that that I had seen earlier in my search that was located in Stoneham. During my first visit, the condo was occupied and I was not able to appreciate the beauty of unit. During my second visit, the condo was vacant. It was bright and very well kept and I loved the area. I immediately made an offer and it was accepted. I closed on the condo in Stoneham on March 24, 2010. I am the owner of two houses in Bermuda and have had many opportunities to interact with real estate agents. Mr. Malka is the most extremely polite, friendly, well spoken and hand working agent that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He made me feel that I his only client and that my needs were important to him. I believe that Mr. Malka has a unique set interpersonal and intellectual skills should be utilized to train and support future real estate agents. Zip Realty is extremely blessed to have Mr. Oren Malka on their team. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

We had some difficulty with a seller and we had a really stressful and hard time. We really feel that we couldn't have done this without Oren and we cannot thank him enough. He is the hardest working realtor and we've never met anyone who showed a great deal of caring for our family. It was also very helpful for us that all the people he introduced us are very professional and reliable -- mortgage broker, inspector, lawyers etc etc. We met and spoke to several different realtors before settling with Oren, and he is definitely the most reliable, caring, and a wonderful realtor!

I have already reffered my closest relatives and friends and even complete strangers to call him if they ever want to buy a home! He is the man to go to! He is amazing at what he does and I have been totally blessed to have had him as my agent and I will NEVER go elsewhere ever again! Zip Realty with Oren Malka is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life! I am more than Happy and satisfied with the services he provided for me and the amount of respect and attention he gave to me during this &60,000.00 purchase! He treated me as if I were buying a million dollar property and I, with all my heart appreciate that so, so much!!!

Oren stayed on top of things the whole way. If he hadn't - I don't think the deal would have closed. He has been great with items afterwards as well.

Oren steadfastly stayed with us for our nearly 2 year search for the right home at the right price, and when we finally found it he went above and beyond his duties as our agent during to ensure that the deal would close and that all our concerns were addressed both before AND after the purchase. This transaction would not have happened if it were not for Oren. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Oren worked very hard to represent me and my best interests. Despite long periods of inactivity on my part when looking, Oren helped me purchase one of the first places he showed to me that had fallen under foreclosure shortly after we first looked at it. He is a very responsible, patient, knowledgeable and most of all helpful representative--an individual whom I was very lucky to work with.

At the onset, we thought we could go through the entire house buying process without a realtor. We found most of the ones we met at open houses to be pushy or otherwise unpleasant, and so we preferred to go it alone. Fortuitously, we met Oren, and we realized how much smoother the whole process could go with someone we trusted to give us advice. In the end, this was the absolutely right decision. We were extremely pleased with the service provided by Oren! After we made our offer, Oren remained in contact with us throughout the day and night to make sure we were kept abreast of the developing situation. His friendliness and optimistic personality kept us calm while we underwent the stress involved with waiting after making an offer. Moreover, we were impressed with his obvious talent for negotiation, as he helped us obtain the house for a fair amount below list. After all the grueling realty work was done (the search, offer, negotiations, and inspection) he remained very attentive to our needs, and would even check in with us to ensure that everything was going smoothly. We enthusiastically recommend Oren.

Oren helped us to get ready to sell the house and offered us some good pointers for setting a good price. This advice made the process happen faster than we ever expected and we were very excited about that. We quickly got the money we needed in a short amount of time and in a tight market. Oren did a great job in getting our home listed and with working his contacts to spark interest and showings.

He was always available to meet my requests without ever pressuring. His references for lender and attorney at closing were excellent. I am very pleased with Oren's efforts on my behalf.

With the exception of a minor glitch when we first met, Oren was extremely helpful. As a first time home buyer he patiently walked me through the process. When I called he was quick to return my call and patiently answer my questions. If there were neighborhoods in which he had doubts, he encouraged me to visit them. Or if a home had potential pitfalls, he would let me know so I could factor that into my decision. As indicated I was very pleased with the services Oren provided and would not hesitate to call upon him again. Note: When Oren was on vacation, Ryan Wanger stepped right in and was also very helpful. I would recommend him to other potential home buyers or sellers.

Oren was a superhero for us. We started our search back in January 2007, and over the past year and a half, we've probably visited 100 homes. Exhausting! But throughout it all, Oren's enthusiasm and patience never wavered. He's given us solid advice throughout, and as first time buyers up here, his perspective and explanations were invaluable. He eagerly took the initiative to find additional properties that he thought we should consider. And through the offers we made -- maybe 6 or 7 in total? -- he always went the extra mile to advocate for us with the sellers and present our case in person. Ultimately, his efforts led us to find the perfect home. My wife and I couldn't be happier. Above and beyond this, Oren's also just a wonderful person: friendly, smart, reliable, great character. It's definitely been a joy working with him. Kudos!

Oren was a huge help through every step of the buying process, and was always available to answer any questions I had (and there were lots). He was very involved in the whole process, making sure to attend both the inspection and the closing, and was great about scheduling to meet my needs-- even on short notice. Though I only purchased a small condo, the service he provided was something you'd expect if you were spending much, much more. I really appreciate all his hard work and help. Oren is truly an asset to ZipRealty!

While I was away on business and in mid-transaction for a purchase he filled in, did combat duty with a difficult sellers' agent, and eased my mind so I could focus on my work. I was definitely well represented by Oren!

Oren is a wonderful broker and I have told everyone I know about him. I'm not always such a wildly enthusiastic person, but you would not believe the extent to which Oren worked on helping me buy this condo from beginning to end. One of Oren's most important characteristics as an excellent broker--besides obvious things like knowing the area and dealing with other brokers and lawyers and so forth--is that he is a superb communicator. The best way I have found to express this is that Oren NEVER drops the ball. In fact, if he has followed up on something and sent the ball back to my court and I miss it or get distracted, he goes and gets the ball himself and puts it back in play. For a busy working woman with two teen age boys and LOTS of distractions, this is a wonderful characteristic. I could not have completed this deal without Oren. It's not that I didn't have the money. I do. It's not that I didn't know what i wanted. I did. It's not that I didn't have a good credit rating. It's excellent. It's that the online mortgage company screwed things up so badly and so persistently that I needed Oren to keep rescuing me in a way I haven't needed for anything else in years and years. Refinancing my house in Arlington and buying a condo in Brookline was something I started in June and thought was all squared away when I left for China in mid July only to come back in August to find that the company (who was handling both mortgages) had sceduled the refinance AFTER the purchase. it's a long, complicated story but Oren stayed on top of everything from beginning to end. I have never recommended anyone as highly as I am recommending Oren to everyone I know who even breathes a wish about buying a piece of property in new england!! oh and did I mention that he's just plain nice besides being super competent?

Oren did a superb job. He checked in regularly to make sure we were getting necessary actions completed. He negotiated well on our behalf when necessary. Was agressive in rounding up necessary information to facilitate all aspects of the finding and buying process. Regarding website, which we generally found extremely helpful, it would be nice to search on "views" as a sorting device e.g mountain views, river views etc.

Oren was simply outstanding throughout the entire process. We began looking for a home over six months ago, and Oren happily showed us places we found online, and researched and suggested others, as well. Although our first attempted purchase fell through (requiring still more phone calls, house visits, etc.) Oren was always extremely helpful and kept in close touch with us. He advised us very well as to making an offer and we are now in a home we love. Thanks to ZipRealty and, most specifically, to Oren!!

Oren is the most personable, professional, committed, and hardworking agent we could possibly have hoped for. He went above and beyond with the entire buying and selling process and worked diligently even for the longer period of time our home was on the market. He kept us up to date on market conditions, sales in the area, showings, and even called us from a foreign country while he was away to deal with a death in the family. He deserves a raise, a promotion, and an award for how hard he worked for us to make our selling experience one that we have zero complaints about! A job well done!
