Keri Califano, Sales Associate - Brookline Office
191 Grove Street, Brookline, MA 02467
"My husband I worked with Keri after she came highly recommended by friends of ours in the Boston area, and after a thorough interview (which had lots of laughs and sincere questions) we knew she would be great for our real estate search. Specifically, we were looking for single-family homes and condos in the Boston area. We interviewed three agents from different Boston real estate teams before working with Keri. All of them had their strengths but Keri's approach was what sold us. In our interview, we asked about her philosophy working with first-time buyers and how she could help break down the complex steps that would come our way. She shared her client-centered approach, which we saw and felt each time we had a question about the home-buying process. She anticipated each step of the process, gave us room to ask question after question, and gave honest feedback about which step would benefit us. During the actual search, Keri helped us evaluate what was important for us, based on the list we had made prior to doing in-home visits. Having an impartial but honest approach was valuable, as we learned that while we did not initially categorize character as important, it emerged as a leading factor and Keri was able to help us whittle down our choices to the condo we did end up putting in an offer and eventually settling into. Once we found our new home, Keri was wonderful with suggesting inspectors - especially in a pandemic, when most were busy and had other clients to work with. She was a wonderful conduit with the seller's agent, advocating for us when we needed and stepping back when we wanted to do something different. Ultimately, she made the process so easy, that the hardest part of the process was choosing new paint and wallpaper for our new place!"
"Keri was a perfect match for me. She understood my needs and was very helpful in helping me to focus on what was important to me. Plus, she really made an extra effort to push through a last-minute snafu to achieve a successful closing. I have already recommended her to several people."
"My husband and I were looking to move out of our apartment complex and own a quiet home. Shortly after meeting Keri via Zoom, we knew we would be in good hands working with her. Keri has an excellent understanding of the housing market and is very realistic in her recommendations. I appreciated that she worked with our budget and never tried to push for a more expensive house. The market was at its peak when we bought our house and everything had to move quickly if we wanted to close. Keri helped us through all the steps and was always available when I had questions. Her recommendations for the attorney, mortgage lender, and home inspector were spot on. The process went very smoothly and we are extremely happy with our home!"
"My boyfriend and I were first time home buyers very adamant on finding a home in the city of Boston. We met Keri a few years ago where she took the time to explain to us the ins an outs of home buying and what we had to do. In the fall of 2020 we reconnected and after countless Open Houses and offers, we have landed our first home! Keri is a super knowledgeable, transparent, and detail orientated Realtor. Not only was she there every step of the way, but also made an awesome recommendation to a loan officer when we needed to change lenders last minute. We will 100% go back to Keri in a heart beat if we find ourselves back in the housing market and we will always recommend her to family and friends who are looking to buy a home."
Gabriela (Hyde Park)
"Such an amazing real estate agent. This was our first purchase and Keri made everything so much easier and simpler than we expected. We appreciate everything she did for us and highly recommend her."
"We worked with Keri and she was wonderful! She took the time to walk us through the whole process, answer questions and get to know us so we could find the right home. She always responded quickly to my calls and emails. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. She stayed on top of all the details and connected us with other strong professionals to help with the mortgage and other details. I always felt like she was giving us honest advice and not trying to hurry us along in the process. I'm so glad we had her to help us buy a home. Buying a home is a stressful process and she made it all run so smoothly."
Arturo & Carolyn (West Roxbury)
"Being new to Boston, we were looking for an experienced agent who would be willing to show us houses in different areas. From the start, Keri was all about listening to our requests, understanding our needs and asking the right questions to know what it was we were looking for. She brought that outside perspective that helps puts things into perspective. She adjusted her schedule to fit with ours and was extremely accommodating, responsive and very present throughout the process. Keri really came through for us during the purchasing process, made sure everyone met deadlines and assisted in more ways than many other agents would have. We would recommend her any day and we thank her sincerely for doing such a great job."

"Keri was unbelievably supportive and helpful during the process of selling my home and buying a new one. She was always there for me when I needed her and was extremely responsive and flexible. Keri was very knowledgeable of the area and the market and made both the home buying and home selling processes easy and enjoyable."
"Keri made the first-time homebuying process an adventure. She is knowledgeable, caring, honest and generally great at what she does. I can't imagine having been in better hands. She handled the few bumps we did encounter with efficiency and good humor and made stellar recommendations for inspections, attorneys, etc. I believe I can count on her even after closing and wouldn't hesitate to go with anyone she recommends. I would recommend Keri to anyone and everyone looking for a real estate agent. Thank you for all you do and for making this one of my greatest adventures!"
Ceclia (South Boston)
"As a first time home buyer, Keri has made the process easy to understand. She is always ready to answer a question or provide resources. She has been great about setting up evening and weekend showings to accommodate my work schedule. Keri is not only very professional, detail oriented, and super organized, but a lot of fun, always ready to point out where the cocktail table could go for my housewarming party."
"Keri is a joy to work with. She's serious about Real Estate but makes it fun. She sold our property and found us a new one, all within a few months. Keri is a dynamo!"
Cora Jeyadame (Newton, MA)
"Keri came highly recommended and did not disappoint. She clearly demonstrated her expertise early on and was accommodating throughout all aspects of the home-buying process and more. (She even gave us contacts for local plumbers, etc. that we may need to engage with down the line.) Keri was efficient, easy to talk to, and a delight to work with."
