What Clients Are Saying

I interviewed Kristine when I wanted to sell my house in Spring 2022. I was impressed at the time with her success in the Southborough area market (she is one of the 2-3 top selling brokers in Southborough), along with her up-to-date and extensive knowledge of the local market. I liked that her agency offered staging, and that they had an active advertising, social media and email campaign planned for the sale of the house. For this reasons, I chose Kristine to represent my property.
I was exceptionally pleased with Kristine’s work in selling our home. She provided a detailed schedule of what we needed to do to sell the home, along with advice and vendor lists that proved invaluable. Kristine made herself available at almost any time, and was highly responsive to my requests for assistance. Her advice was excellent, and she stayed on top of any tasks that either she or I needed to complete to sell the home. She was also very empathetic regarding difficulties that I encountered, and provided her assistance wherever possible.
During the Summer 2022 selling period (when we came on the market), sales started to slow down. Our home was an antique home, which also limited the potential pool of buyers. Kristine worked hard during this time to promote our property and bring potential buyers into the house, including having multiple open houses and reaching out to prior interested parties. She was able to successfully put our house under contract in 30 days, and negotiated with the Buyer and the Buyer’s agent highly effectively. We sold our home at over the asking price.
I can strongly recommend Kristine Shifrin for her brokerage services and am happy that we chose her for this service.

It took us a while to find the right realtor and we’re glad our search led us to Andrew. He’s extremely knowledgeable of the local market and was incredibly patient with us when answering questions and finally deciding to list our home. In addition he’s got an incredible team and network that helped us stage, clean and update just what was needed to get the best possible price. We trusted him and his team completely and they made what can be a stressful process very smooth. If you want a realtor who truly cares about you to guide you through selling your home, we highly recommend Andrew and his team.

"It is with pleasure I submit this review and recommendation for Ben Montenegro. Ben worked tirelessly at marketing and selling my unique home. There is a specific clientele that would appreciate the characteristics and uniqueness of this home. Ben successfully found such potential buyers and was able to present and highlight the positive attributes the home provided. Ben is honest, hard working and diligent with his work. He has a high level of integrity and remains upbeat and positive throughout the selling process. No challenge seemed too much for him to take on, and there were a few. I trusted Ben’s judgements and recommendations entirely, always knowing he was “in it” every step of the way!" --Karen

"Brittany was absolutely amazing during the entire process! She has so much market knowledge and was always SO responsive every time I texted or emailed her. Every concern or question I had she was always able to answer for us. The thing that stuck out most about Brittany was that she was not pushy at all and never tried to talk us into a home we didn't truly love. She told us from the very beginning that when we found the right house we would just know- and she was right! I cannot recommend Brittany enough!" --Jillian


Working with Alicia was absolutely amazing! We were first time homebuyers, and we were located in California, but looking in Worcester. Since it was the middle of a pandemic, we couldn't fly back to New England to tour homes, so Alicia accommodated us 100% remotely. She did an awesome job touring homes for us, showing us around the new neighborhoods, giving us her honest feedback on if a house was a good fit, and encouraged us during a hectic market this Spring! She was also extremely helpful in assisting us through the mortgage process and closing, despite some bumps out of our control. I highly recommend Alicia for anyone looking for their starter home, their forever home, or anything in between!

I heard from the attorney that the condo is officially sold and everything went well with the closing.  Susan Lucey, you have just been fantastic throughout his entire process and I really can't thank you enough.

Working with Alicia was a formidable experience.  She is polished, professional and readily available to tackle any challenge whenever needed.  Alicia brings deep industry expertise and partners with her clients in a reliable and transparent manner.




"When we decided to put our family house up for sale after 24 years we underestimated the amount of time and level of detail our home needed. Not that it was a neglected shanty or anything similar, we realized it needed some attention. Hiring the Abu team not only helped us realize that potential they also guided us through the process. From hiring a painter to managing the staging to recommending an estate sale vendor to suggesting items for removal and remaining, they did it all. And that was just to GET to the point of showing the property! They did so much more than we ever anticipated and will always be grateful for their ability to see it through. Well done Abu team."

"Dear Andrew, it seemed like a long haul, but we have to congratulate you on getting the job done! Thank you so much for your support, guidance and perseverance. You were extremely patient with us, helping us at each step along the way. And your Staff and Jane were extremely helpful. Please thank them all!

Best wishes for a successful end of the year and 2021."

As seasoned real estate owners, having bought and sold several houses through the years, we were looking for an agent that could maximize the value in our high-end house.  Equally important was a smooth process centered on honesty, transparency, and proactiveness. 

Kristine Wingate Shifrin brought all these attributes plus some. We were happy with the end result of selling our house at the highest possible price but the process is what sets Kristine apart from others. She was forthright with suggestions pre-listing, proactive during the listing, comfortable with the demands of potential buyers (and sellers) at the high end of the market, and pleasantly responsive throughout. We would highly recommend her for anybody’s real estate needs. “

As my dad’s health was declining, it was clear my family needed to place him in Assisted Living. We realized this would also require us to endure the burden of selling his house. I called Mike, and he met with me the very next day to put together a game plan. By the end of our meeting we had a timeline and plan of attach in the works. He place the house on the market at the timeline that we agreed upon. Prior to that he made arrangements to stage the house, referred us to a painter, electrician and mover, whom were all great to work with. The house was listed on a Friday, and over a 3 day Holiday Weekend we had multiple offers above asking price. We were able to close in approximately 3 weeks. Mike made the process easy and quick, which was a godsend to my dad and our family.

Ben was an incredible partner to sell our home in Framingham and buy a home in Sudbury. He provided a thorough market assessment to price our home accurately and timely guidance upon receiving multiple offers on our home within the first 24 hours. With a tight timeline, he also helped to find a beautiful home in Sudbury for us to raise our family. I highly recommend Ben! He may even stop by with a thoughtful gift to check in once you’re settled - he definitely goes above and beyond! ~Stephanie

"This is a trust property that Ben listed and sold for five different related families. Ben did a superb job outlining what our expectations should be around the Boston Metro market conditions and pricing the property appropriately for sale. The biggest help that Ben provided to us was outlining the house updates and cosmetic improvements needed for our competitive marketing of the house. Ben prepared a to-do list to insure proper scheduling of the advised work. Ben also recommended and contacted the trade companies for us to provide introductions and to facilitate communications for the work-in-progress. We came in at budget obtaining beautiful quality of workmanship for all projects. The house received offers above the asking price with an accepted offer executed three days from the listing date. Ben is a real estate master and we could not be more pleased with his professionalism." --Francis


Susan, We would also like to thank you and Mark for everything you have done for us to reach this end. Without your commitment, diligence, and perseverance this would not have happened. Greatly appreciate your staying on top of everything during our absence from the scene. Naseema & Riaz

Dear Andrew,

Linda Tolman assisted me in finding my home in Yarmouth. She went above and beyond her scope of work by driving by listings, driving through different areas and helping me find just the right place. My hope was to find a home in a nice neighborhood that needed work, but location to the beach was key. I am now 1/10 of a mile walk to the beach in a beautiful neighborhood, and the home needs work, but with rising prices and overbidding that's what I needed. Also I called her a lot, and she was always gracious in answering my calls. I would and have recommended her to my friends and family!



After living in our Southborough home for 35 years, we moved to a smaller house. We met with several local realtors before deciding to go with Andrew Abu and his team. During the whole process we also worked closely with Andrew’s associate, Ben Montenegro. We can’t imagine navigating the whole process without them. From his first visit, Andrew impressed us with his knowledge of the local real estate market. He advised us well on the asking price for our house, the ins and outs of marketing the house, what improvements did and did not need to be done. Communication throughout the whole process was excellent. They walked us through the intricacies of the process, and provided reliable reassurance when needed. We would recommend them wholeheartedly.

"I have known and worked with Andrew for over 25 years. As far as recommending a realtor there is no one person or company more qualified, better prepared with knowledge of the area and professionalism than Andrew and his team. Their unquestioned integrity and the willingness to work with you at all levels has no equal. He will walk you through the process from start to finish with a no pressure approach and explain what happens at each step. He will perform his due diligence with respect to your home and it’s value and explain the rationale for his approach and ultimate listing price. If asked he and his team will help you decide what steps to take regarding renovation or to maximize the value of your property and provide very qualified craftsman if needed. They will take care of every detail from the listing process through to you receiving your final check and it will be done professionally and seamlessly. As far as finding the right real estate professional to list your home or the best broker to help you find a new property there is no person or office better than Andrew Abu. I highly recommend him with no reservations whatsoever. Go with the best!"
