Whether you are looking in Newtonville, Waban, any of Newton’s 13 villages or surrounding communities, MVP can take you through the entire process of buying a home. From the initial visit to the closing and beyond, MVP is always willing to help.

Why choose team MVP?

The answer is simple: Connections. Team MVP is affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Newton Centre, Massachusetts. Our office has over 100 sales associates, as well as professional support staff. This provides us with a number of advantages:

1. We learn about many listings before they appear on Zillow, Redfin, Trulia and other similar sites

Numerous listings are shared with team MVP by other agents before they come onto MLS and other  websites. We may be able to give a potential buyer a heads up before a listing is fed through to these online avenues, which may give them more time to consider making an offer.

2. We may be able to save you money when negotiating

Team MVP works as both a buyers and sellers agent, although never in the transaction. MVP does not, and cannot, practice dual agency. This means that if we are working with you as a buyer, we are always looking out for your best interests at all times. As we regularly price homes in the form of a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for sellers, we can give you as a buyer our opinion of a home’s value. We also can give you ideas of what projects a home may need and we can provide you with a list of vendors should you need it. Need a letter of pre-approval? We have connections to several loan officers who can walk you through the mortgage process.

3. We have knowledge of the local market and Newton villages

MVP has more than 30 years of combined experience working with both buyers, sellers in Newton and surrounding areas, such as Brookline and Lexington. We are alerted to new single family, multi-family and condominium properties coming onto the market many times a day! We also go on tour most Thursdays, which means we travel across the City to look at new properties coming on the market. As an added bonus, when working with team MVP, we can generally alert you to these Thursday ‘open houses,’ and usually bring you along if a property peaks your interest. This can give you, as a buyer, more time to consider making an offer.

4. Service continues after a sale is completed

Picture this, you just bought your dream home and moved in. The grass is getting long and you are looking to hire someone to cut it. Where do you start? You could Google the names of trusted landscapers, or post in a Facebook group. But what about when you want to redo a bathroom, or paint the living room?

Most clients who buy a home look for contractors for roof, bathroom, painting, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, snow removal and HVAC repairs and upgrades. Team MVP will always be happy to assist you in finding reliable contractors for work you want done. Many of the companies and people we recommend do work on our own homes. If their work is not good enough for one of us, we will never recommend them to a client. Clients regularly call MVP, years after buying their property for the names of reliable local companies.

“We worked with Carol and Nancy as first-time home buyers and we have been so grateful for all of their help. They took the time to get to know us and what it was we were looking for in a home. We never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision, and really valued their honest and insightful  feedback. They have been honest, knowledgeable, patient, straight forward, and very responsive. We could not have been more happy working with them and would undoubtedly recommend them to others.” Read More Reviews.
