We purchased a single family home in Newton a month ago. I was traveling out of the country for most of the offer process so depended on Adam to send me all the necessary forms over email. He was prompt and responsive, without which this purchase would never have happened."

We are first time buyers and aside from attending open houses, we had no idea what the process entailed. Through a friend, we were put in contact with Adam. Adam immediately made himself available without notice to talk us through the standard process. He provided us with helpful information but did not pressure us to work with him as our agent. This was the reason we immediately wanted Adam as our agent, he truly had our best interest in mind. With less than 24 hours notice Adam met us to attend an open house and immediately got in contact with the agent selling the condo that we wanted. Adam was great throughout the process, he helped make us more knowledgeable and provided reliable contacts (ie bank, lawyer) that made the process seamless. Adam was friendly and courteous throughout the process and there was never a time that he was not available to us (including being on vacation).

Buying and selling a house is an incredibly important and emotional decision. Adam helped us purchase our first home in Oct 2007 and purchase another home in Mar 2017. In both transactions he has worked incredibly hard to represent our family's needs. But this should be the cost of entry for your Real Estate Agent. Where Adam stands apart is his deep and sincere understanding- of our values, our dreams and our budget-to-dream ratio. Time is a valuable commodity, and Adam took time to research and show us several communities that fit our criteria, that inevitably helped us narrow down our search. Adam is an incredibly compassionate and effective real estate agent."

Adam literally saved our house when we were away in Florida and a had a pipe leak at the house. Within an hour of discovering the leak he had an electrician, plumber and maintenance crew at the house to resolve the problem. We couldn't have asked for a better person to handle the situation and would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for an agent.

I have known Adam for the last 3 years as a property manager, and I contacted him when I wanted to very quickly put in an offer on a property in Newton. Despite the fact that Adam was out of town at the time, he was tremendously responsive and thorough, and managed the process with great skill. I appreciated his insight into the Newton market and the negotiation process. He is also a really nice person and easy to work with. I recommend him highly.

Adam is a consummate professional. His knowledge, motivation, and ability to help us navigate through any and all questions along the way made the home selling process easy. We had certain expectations when we decided to sell our condo and Adam surpassed all of them consistently. From the first conversation to the day of closing, it was truly a pleasure to work with Adam and we would highly recommend him to any of our family and friends who may be looking to sell a home.

Adam is a pleasure to work with and very adaptable with all issues and/or items that might arise during the home selling / buying process.

He showed confidence and skill through the negotiations, He helped close the deal in a fair and professional manner. I would highly recommend Adam for all of your real estate needs.

My husband and I recently purchased a condo in Jamaica Plain. Within weeks we met Adam and had put in several offers. Adam is very responsive and was sure to provide us with all the information we needed to make and educated decision. With properties selling well beyond their asking prices, Adam was very conscious in coaching us to make decisions that worked for us. I highly recommend Adam to anyone buying or selling in the area.

I was selling a house in the Boston suburbs and I live 400 miles away . A lot of communication occurred by phone and I found Adam to be available whenever I needed him. I also came into town a number of times during the process and Adam went out of his way to be helpful, providing what I needed as an out of town visitor. Adam plotted the course for marketing the house and followed the timeline closely. He kept me informed of the process every step of the way. I liked the clearly reasoned way that he presented each of the bids. Through the whole sale process, he was professional and yet warm and friendly. It was a pleasure working with him.

My husband and I were looking to buy a property in our neighborhood and Adam was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and engaging as our realtor. Adam managed the process of the offer seamlessly and was a true advocate and partner to us throughout. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in our offer on this property at the time, but we will definitely be working with Adam as our realtor as we continue to seek our dream home in the Jamaica Plain area! I happily highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for a responsive, engaging, and highly competent and helpful realtor!

We cannot say enough about Adam. He is a true professional. His expertise in the whole business of real estate is undeniable, but beyond this, it is his manner that really sets him aside. We went through a process of viewing and then bidding on two properties in recent months. Adam is incredibly responsive. He was available to meet evenings and weekends. He has a great ability to present the complex process of real estate purchase in a very straightforward manner, which was very important to us, as we had not bought in the US before. During a bidding process on an apartment, Adam's council kept us informed and sane with regular conversations during what was quite a rollercoaster ride. At no point was he anything other than patient and supportive. He fought hard for our best interests and a positive outcome. Ultimately, that purchase did not go ahead, but that was entirely down to us. Adam negotiated the opportunity for us and in the end we had to back out. When we look to purchase again, Adam will be our first, and I expect, only call. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Adam to any prospective buyer. For such a huge investment, it is so important to know that you have someone working for you who is professional, trustworthy and always available. And, before i forget: he is a really nice guy, too!

As a landlord and developer for over 20 years, Adam has impressed me with his professionalism and tenacity. I have known him for about 6 years and Adam has shown me over 100 properties and his advice has been very accurate in regard to valuation and potential for profit. Adam has a solid grasp of the Newton market in particular, a market that has a wide spectrum of neighborhoods and valuations. As a specific example of why I am impressed by Adam: even though I wasn't the buyer on a certain deal, I observed that Adam was extremely respectful of a client who needed a lot of patience and hand-holding to sell their home. He really went the extra mile to take car of that client, and showed great compassion in a difficult family situation.

I recently spent time with Adam searching for a new home. I had specific items I wanted in a new home and Adam took the time too listen to my needs and helped identify properties that met my search criteria. Adam is a very good listener, patient and not pushy at all. I felt at ease working with him and never felt pressured or rushed into making any rash decisions. After spending a few months looking at various options I decided my best course of action was to stay in my current home. Adam was not disappointed when I told him and was quite supportive of my decision after we talked and I realized not making a move was in my best interest. Even though I did not buy a house with Adam, I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell. He is a genuinely kind and knowledgeable person in an industry that can be filled with people who are not. You can count on him being trustworthy and responsive to your needs.

Adam was a rainmaker for me. A very close personal friend recommended him to me when I was having trouble selling my house after several months on the market and massive frustration. Immediately I felt comfortable with Adam because of his knowledge, his network, and his follow-through. He did not mince words with me. He had both a clear strategy and an even clearer execution plan. No detail was too small for Adam. He took a comprehensive approach that looked at all aspects of the sale -- from staging to marketing, and also spent a great deal of time talking with buyers highlighting the special features of the house. Within two weeks of working with Adam, I had a buyer for my house. I have learned a tremendous amount from Adam and recommend him without question to you. Whether you have a luxury home or a much loved, modest property, Adam will get your property sold.

I sold a home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Brighton Adam Shamus recently sold my home. Not only was it sold in a day and closed within 35 days, but it sold over the listing price. I attribute all of these remarkable feats to the knowledge, expertise and professionalism that Adam demonstrated throughout every step of the process. Adam was able to guide me at first with precise and perfect suggestions as to how to appraise and fairly price my home. He then went on to advise me in how to present and market it as well. From the first walk through where Adam made pertinent, specific and invaluable suggestions to enhance the appearance of the inside as well as the outside, to having a list of people who could execute the work that he advised me to have done, I felt confident and assured that I was in good hands. Finally, his sense of commitment culminated in the timeliness and the facility with which the closing took place It was always clear that Adam's first priority was his client. He is a personable, committed, knowledgeable realtor and I was fortunate to have him handle the sale of my home.

Adam provided us with first-class support and service from start to finish. When we were ready to put our home on the market, we did not hesitate to reach out to Adam to represent us. He came to our home and sat down with us to discuss next steps as this was our first sale. He walked through our home and gave us sage advice on economical updates we could make to help secure a great price. Moreover, he recommended folks who could do the work every step of the way. The folks he recommended were talented and reasonably priced. His pricing of the home reflected his knowledge of the market and area and we were able to accept a great offer over asking. When I was having anxiety in the days leading up to the open house and during negotiations, he was responsive and supportive. He made the whole experience incredibly positive and we would highly recommend him!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Adam Shamus on the purchase of our first home. We were initially skeptical about the reception we would receive since we were first timers. We were pleasantly surprised by how receptive and welcoming Adam was to us. He was able to answer all the questions we had and gave us helpful pointers all along the process. He was very detailed about what needed to be done when and was patient enough to repeat explanations when we got lost in real estate jargon. He was very responsive and helped us negotiate a great deal on the home we ended up buying and we so love our new home. We highly recommend his services.

Adam is an incredibly good agent. We worked with him to buy our first home in Roslindale, even to this day I can't believe how patient he was with us. First, we dragged him to 50 homes that ended up being out of our price range. Then we dragged him to 50 more that were in our price range. On the day of our closing I had a case of serious buyer's remorse and told him I couldn't go through with it. True story. Not only did he effectively talk me off a ledge, he did so with the sincerest patience and confidence and kindness. (We ended up closing that day and being extremely happy in that home!). There are many good Realtors out there, but few make you feel like Adam does. He invests so thoroughly in his clients that you really feel like he is personally involved in the transaction and also your satisfaction and happiness. I have known several people now who have worked with Adam, and the report is always the same: extremely knowledgeable, extremely ethical, and 100% committed to his clients. I am so happy that he contacted us after we met him at his open house. Adam won our trust and has held it ever since. I would confidently refer him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Adam was an amazing realtor for us. He is a great listener, patient, attentive, detail-oriented and thorough. At the beginning of our process, Adam tempered our expectations, while also getting us excited about the prospect of buying our first place. And when we found the home that we eventually bought, Adam checked and re-checked to make sure we were certain about our decision before putting in the offer. Adam was a constant advocate on our behalf throughout each stage of the buying process: helping us clarify what we were looking for, framing the offer, setting expectations during negotiation, and ensuring the seller followed through with promised items. In addition, Adam always made sure to celebrate with us in moments of excitement and commiserate with us in moments of frustration. We would highly recommend working with Adam for either buying or selling, and couldn’t be happier that we worked with him throughout our process!

Adam Shamus has an innate open and supportive personality. He has that unique ability to meet each client/client family “where they are at.” Adam understands the need for commitment; if there is a conflict, he will connect with you with enough time to reschedule. He is flexible; willing to work around you, as a client, as much as possible. I recommend Adam, as a passionate, empathetic professional.

While our son was attending college in Boston we wanted to purchase a condo for him and his roommates to live in. Adam found us the perfect unit and made the transaction so easy for us, especially since we live in California. Adam was always available to answer questions and always provided service at a much higher level than we could have imagined. Adam’s knowledge of the real estate market in the Boston area has proved beneficial beyond our expectation. The condo has appreciated considerably since our purchase. Without Adam’s help non of this would have been possible. We would recommend Adam with confidence to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Boston area.

Adam Shamus was a fantastic resource during our recent home buying and selling process, serving as our agent for both transactions. He skillfully helped us every step of the way, in what can normally be a very high-stress situation. His knowledge of the market, open communication, and patient persistence resulted in us not only selling our property within one week of listing, but also helped us buy our dream home without any roadblocks. In fact, we worked with Adam when we purchased our first property six years ago, and actively sought him out again because of how pleased we were with our first experience. Adam strikes the perfect balance of professionalism and care for his clients, making him not only a great agent, but a truly trustworthy person. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I elected to work with Adam to help sell my mother’s home in Newton after she passed away. Because of his Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation, I felt Adam was uniquely qualified to handle this challenging and difficult process for me and my family. Adam took the time to listen to our concerns and needs. Based on this he helped craft a selling strategy and timeline that met our goals and expectations. Adam was patient and very helpful with the entire process. He was able to recommend several specialists to help clear the house out and get things appraised and he took care of many small issues that I was not available to deal with (i.e cleaning the gutters, making sure the house was up to code for the fire department). He was truly a full service Realtor! We were very pleased with Adam's service, professionalism and constant communication throughout. I would recommend him highly for anyone looking to buy or sell
