From Jackie S on 12/29/2012:
I recently relocated from Toronto to Boston.Moving here from Canada with no credit history in the United States made finding a place where I didn't need to update my tetanus shot series, almost impossible. It was quite the feat to not only find a place to live during November/December, but also find the ideal location for the ideal price for someone with no credit history in the US.Lisa Radosta did it!!! She was tenacious. She was determined. She was encouraging. She was cordial and ALWAYS professional. She never abandoned me even at times when it seems like we were never going to find a place that would be ideal for me to call home.As if that wasn't enough: once we found the ideal landing point, Lisa followed up with me after I moved in to ensure that I was settling in nicely.I would definitely recommend Lisa and the staff at Capital Residential Group for future property searches. They treat you like family.Thank you Lisa, for your hard work and tenacity. Thank you for sticking this out with me. Much, much appreciated.

Matt did a great job. Will use him & Capital for future Real Estate.
From Kate G on 10/30/2012:
Lisa was great! At times, she was the only bright spot in an otherwise painful process. Her communication was great and she kept on top of everything. Can't thank her enough!
From Nick & Alicia P on 9/18/2012:
We are so happy and fortunate to have worked with Paula! She is an excellent agent, but more importantly a great person who was a pleasure to work with.
From Matthew H on 9/4/2012:
I had been renting in South Boston for the last few years, and figured it was about time to start seriously considering home ownership. I started the process by first looking at the online catalogs of properties on sale from a few different realty companies in the Boston area. I was then contacted by a number of real-estate agents, but wasn't ready to jump into the search just yet, wanting to see what was out there first before I contacted a rep from these companies.
Michelle Talbot contacted me from Capital Residential and she couldn't have been more supportive of my time table. Michelle completely understood I wasn't ready to jump into anything. She set me up on their email feed for new listings that met my criteria, and would periodically check in before I was ready to start seeing them.
After a short time of I contacted Michelle about making some visits to the properties I had picked out.
She got right back to me and setup a walk through for that very night.
It only took a couple weeks before I found the perfect place and Michelle was there every step of the way.
Being a first time home owner, there was a lot of questions I needed answering and Michelle's experience and intimate knowledge of the neighborhood proved to be invaluable in helping me make my decision.
I 100% recommend Michelle and Capital Residential if you are in the market for a Boston Realtor.
From Chelsey H & Mike R. on 8/8/2012:
Paula was amazing and we can't say enough wonderful things about her. We are so happy!
From Nardia H. on 6/29/2012:
I found Michelle Talbot and John Collins on a whim walking home from the dentist, thinking it was about time I got moving on buying a place. I got very lucky. They were both fantastic to deal with. Michelle got me moving on the search, which was exactly what I wanted. She is very professional, efficient and was was there when I needed her for anything at all. She has become a friend in the process, and I'd definitely go back to her if I decide to rent my new place. John was fantastic at helping me get all my documents organized for a mortgage application, remained completely charming even when I changed my mind about the lock-in details after I'd signed off on them, and in the end definitely went beyond the call of duty in helping me overcome a few glitches in the mortgage process. All in all, a very good experience. I'd recommend Capital Residential Group to anyone.
From Kelly L. on 6/13/2012:
I could not be happier with my experience at Capital. I recently worked with Paula Maher to purchase my first home, a condo in South Boston. As a first-time homebuyer, I was concerned about finding a realtor who I felt I could really trust through the process - and someone knowledgeable & patient enough to answer my questions about every detail and document - and that is exactly what I found in Paula. She really listened to what I was looking for, was proactive, gave straightforward advice during the search process, and ultimately helped me find a place I love. Once I found a property, Paula was incredibly responsive - totally my saving grace through a rough experience with a "less-than-organized" loan officer assigned to me by the bank. I would highly recommend Paula & the team at Capital.
From Tyler H. on 6/12/2012:
Provided a relatively painless process. Capital Residential was able to provide me with one stop shopping between realtor, financing, and insurance. Being a first time homebuyer, they were very patient and able to work with me and able to get me into my condo. Paula was very straightforward and honest, I did not feel like I was getting taken advantage of. Would definitely work with them again!
From Jeremy W. on 5/26/2012:
I was referred to Capital Residential Group by a co-worker/friend who had used them almost a year ago. I was hesitant at first when I was told that they had only been open a short time. Well it's true that they have only been open about a year but they have about 50+ years experience between all of their agents. Every phone call and every email was promptly returned. The experience was frustrating as every appointment that we had with another real estate firms agent had some sort of excuse. Between listings being under agreement or the owner canceling at the last minute it became increasingly frustrating.....my agent at capital put me at ease. He reassured me to remain patient...sure enough about 6 weeks into my search, I received a phone call about a listing they had and I scheduled an appointment that night at 6pm. I toured the property for about a half hour, went back to their office, made an offer ( I was very nervous as a first time buyer). It was about 8:30pm and I figured the agent had to leave but he stayed an answered every single question I had! They even gave me advice on the process of financing.....long story short - I closed on my place in about 45 days with only a few minor bumps (from the seller)...the agent showed up at my closing with a bottle of wine and a thank you card. If I could give 10 stars I would and if I my fingers weren't sore I would type more. If you are looking for a group of real estate professionals give the team at capital a call!
From Liz D. on 3/14/2012:
I am not usually a person to review on yelp but needed the world to know what an amazing experience my family and I had with Paula and her team at Capital Residential.
My husband and I met Paula five + years ago when we met her at a random open house in South Boston. after walking out of the door we both decided she was our gal! we promptly got rid of the initial broker we were working with and the rest is history! Paula dealt with me needing to see literally every place on the maker even though we ended up buying the second place we looked at! We made this condo our home for the past five years and have started our little family in this special place. Paula guided two totally clueless people with patience, kindness, and true professionalism.
Flash forward to today...we just sold and closed on the above property and again couldn't be happier with Paula and her team. I feel the need to stress this because she and her company are being misrepresented by a previous review. Paula sold our place in about 5 weeks 2 of those weeks being the the winter holiday season. From start to finish she was fantastic and supportive as i am the kind of person who needs a hand holder in stressful situations. She respected the needs of my young family and was always there to answer a question, lend a hand, or soothe my anxiety! If there is another time we decide to purchase a home there is no one else I'd call! She has compiled a special group of people and we had wonderful experiences with her "assistants" (who are actually great brokers not Paula's assistants).
So in closing...if you need not only a great broker but a warm, honest, and compassionate person to help you with the purchase or sale of your home call Paula, you won't be disappointed!
From Jennifer O. on 9/12/2011:
I recently moved to Boston from Hartford, CT and had no idea where to begin. I found Andrew at Capital Residential through a recommendation from my new co-workers and was extremely thankful. I had a very short timeline to find an apartment and relocate and Andrew was quick to find various apartments to look at, all in one Saturday morning. He helped me narrow down locations based on my criteria and also made recommendations based on safety and accessibility. Not only did I find and sign a lease for my great new apartment in one day, but Andrew also helped me with various logistics after the fact (setting up electric, etc).
I've already recommended this group to 3 of my co-workers and I will continue to do so to anyone looking for an apartment. These guys are a dream to work with!
From Chantelle D. on 8/30/2011:
Capital Residential Group was the best company to work with in South Boston! Everyone was so nice, helpful, and considerate of our needs.
John Collins is very knowledgeable about South Boston and his knowledge helped us land the best place for us.
Would recommend Capital Residential Group to anybody looking to buy/sell real estate in South Boston. We got the best treatment and the best deal!
From Jill S. on 8/30/2011:
John Collins and all of Capital Residential Group have been top notch to work with! Being new to the South Boston area, John and his team welcomed us and made us feel like we were their main priority. Everyone on the team is personable and friendly, making it easy to ask the questions you need to ask and get the answers you need!
They are very open, approachable and willing to go the extra mile for you.
I recommend Capital Residential Group to anyone out there looking for the best, most truthful answers to market/tech trends at the best value, whether you are looking to sell or buy!
From Casey Y. on 8/30/2011:
I was stuck in an awful situation. Someone told me they heard about Capital Residential Group, located in South Boston. I called and spoke to John Collins. He reassured me that I was in good hands, without sounding over the top, or basically, a schmoozer. He was down to earth and sounded like a real team player. I received a free initial consultation and knew that things were going to become that much brighter.
John and his team helped me to realize the value of investing and how to take the right steps in order to make such a big decision. I had almost given up and really did not know where else to turn. I was clearly placed in the right hands and would recommend John, Paula and the rest of the team to anyone. :)
From Jennifer G. on 7/21/2011:
Paula and her team at Capital Residential Group are awesome. They helped guide me through the successful purchase of my first home in South Boston.
After working with (and firing) two other well known realtors in South Boston (who ended up being VERY shady), I am happy I found Paula. She is honest, straightforward, hard-working and looks out for your best interest above anything else. Further, she understands that Boston is a small city and the best way to earn future business is to make sure her clients are completely satisfied and to always do the right thing for her clients, versus just making the sale to make money.
I am recommending her to all of my friends.
If you are seeking representation for real estate transactions in Boston, save yourself headaches and work with Capital Residential Group. They won't let you down.
From Megan S:
In the past, I had stopped trying to find apartments through real estate agents, since I found them uninterested in someone who wasn't looking to rent the highest priced properties. Bob changed my thinking. He suggested a place that he thought would fit my needs and took us right over to see it. We loved it! It was perfect and a great fit for us. We appreciate Bob's professionalism in listening and in truly going the extra mile to get us this place.
From Alexia D:
Can't say enough great things about Paula. Thanks!
From Lindsay S:
It was great working with you Paula! Thanks again.
From Peter E:
Thanks for the help with moving, selling and buying!
From Joe M:
I couldn't have asked for a better company or agent to represent me. Paula always looked out for my best interest and showed a caring attitude.
From Nichole K:
Paula was great to work with! I've already recommended her to a few friends. Lisa and John were great to work with too. I trusted all of them and would recommend and work with everyone again. Thanks!
From Heather G:
Thanks again Paula for all your hard work!!
