Thomas Grimshaw

Realtor

Helping clients make smart decisions about where they call home is what gets Thomas out of bed every morning. His strong work ethic is absolutely attributable to having been born and raised in Boston and into a family of successful real estate brokers.   A degree in International Marketing from Bentley University, a global point of view, and experience living in some of the world’s most dynamic cities like Miami, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, London, and Christiansted, USVI has enabled him to build a network of clients all over the world.  As a licensed broker with Compass, Thomas serves the New England and Florida markets.

Born in the Wollaston neighborhood of Quincy, MA, Thomas' passion for Boston and the lifestyle that it affords its residents is why he has made it his home.  He currently resides in the waterfront Fort Point Chanel/Seaport neighborhood of Boston, also recently named the Innovation District, Boston's newest and most emerging residential area.  He has also enjoyed living in the Back Bay and South End.

One of his first transactions upon making real estate his full-time career over a decade ago was the sale of a $4 million dollar waterfront condominium.  Thomas negotiated the sale between sellers in Venezuela and buyers from New York.  This is when he realized that brokering the sale of property in Boston is both a hyper-local and worldwide business.

In his spare time, he is actively involved in the Boston chapter of the Point Foundation, the National LGBTQ Scholarship Fund. He loves working in Boston's South End, Fort Point, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and South Boston neighborhoods.  He also loves working in the waterfront communities of Hingham and Hull and has helped buyers and sellers in Arlington and other Greater Boston neighborhoods. After living and selling in Miami for over 15 years, Thomas understands thoroughly why the city is such an amazing place to call home, full-time or part-time. Miami always welcomes you.

Thomas lives by the motto: “Ask me, I'm sure I can help!"
