Carmela and Dave were wonderful from beginning to end. They are extremely to knowledgeable about the Boston real estate market. They are very professional and command a great deal of respect in the Boston community. They were very sensitive to our wants and needs and very insightful about how we could find what we were looking for. Throughout the many months that we worked with them (and almost all that time we were doing our search from a long distance outside Boston), they were always available to discuss our property interests, the merits of various alternatives, and to show us properties when we were in Boston. The purchase of our home (Back Bay) went very smoothly from the initial bid to the final closing. In addition, they have made wonderful recommendations for all kinds of local services (e.g., locksmith, moving company, insurance agent, etc). We certainly give Carmela and Dave our highest recommendation!

Dave Costello went above & beyond what we would expect for a real estate agent. We were doing a complex 1031 exchange that he navigated flawlessly and we needed some last minute repairs that he took care of for us. I highly recommend Dave and CL Properties.
