Stephen Johansen’s background in teaching is the backbone of his client experience. His ability to break down and effectively communicate the seemingly overwhelming real estate buying, selling, and leasing processes into easy, understandable pieces is key for his clients. Working in several different countries, states, and cities with culturally diverse populations have given him the patience, perspective, and negotiation skills necessary to be successful in our ever-changing world. He is passionate about real estate and loves using his skills to help tutor his buyers and sellers about the ins and outs of the local Greater Boston real estate market.
Leveraging his 7 years of experience in leasing, sales, and property management, Stephen is able to advise his clients, be it a first-time home buyer, seasoned home-owner, or savvy investor, not only on the process of the transaction but also on the value of their investment based on its location, amenities, and potential rental income. He’s adept at knowing which updates and renovations will add the most value and maximize his clients’ return on their investment. Above all, he is skilled at finding the right home for his buyer or renter and the right buyer for his seller.
Stephen seeks every day, in every interaction and transaction, to act honorably and educate where possible, or seek out answers for himself and for his clients were not. He is extremely loyal and will bring his considerable skills to bear for his clients to ensure a smooth, seamless, and stress-free transaction for all involved.
Janis and Ellen acted swiftly and professionally to get us the perfect house just minutes after it came on the market.
Ellen and Janis took over when another real estate agent didn’t work out.
Their knowledge of the local market was invaluable to us. We always knew what to expect and that there were never any surprises.
Selling our home of 20 years could have been a traumatic experience, but thanks to the excellent advice from Ellen and Janis it was not.
Janis clearly explained the steps of buying and was realistic with me in terms of the market and what to expect.
