“Pam Bathen has been an exceptional real estate agent for us. We had a unique, high-value home that needed just the right marketing and exposure to bring in the right buyers. She and Steve priced the property just right, then marketed it brilliantly. It sold in under a week, for 11% above our asking price, and much more than we were hoping for and expecting. That is a "home" run! Pam also displayed her deep knowledge of metro Boston residential property, educating us on the downtown Boston condo market and showing us properties that met our needs at the right price. When an unusually large, well-situated condo came to our attention, she worked with us to evaluate it and determine it was just the right choice for us, and then helped us land the property at 4% below the sellers' asking price. Another home run! Throughout both the selling and buying process, Pam and Steve have been focused on delivering great service, and are responsive, thorough, professional, and detail-oriented. They did it all. Oh - and Pam and Steve both are just terrific, stand-up, honest and caring people who worked very hard to help us realize our dreams of capturing our home's value, and finding just the right new home to enable the lifestyle we're seeking. Highest recommendation - you've found the best of the best!”
“It was a wonderful experience. Pam and Steve guided us through the process with compassion as we faced very difficult and unusual circumstances. They worked diligently on our behalf, arranging showings, searching for opportunities and explaining options. Their calming influence eased our anxieties. We are now very happy in our new home thanks to them!”
“Overall, I'm very happy with my experience working with Oak Realty. As a first-time homebuyer, the team here did a great job of walking me through the process, getting to understand what I was looking for in a home and giving me feedback on the places I visited. And once the offer was made, they kept not only myself but all the various parties involved on-track to finally close. Would absolutely recommend.”
“My wife and I were first time home buyers. Pam, Steve, and Gretchen did an amazing job in bringing us up to speed with the buying process and all the fine details. Pam and Gretchen communicated really effectively. I could reach out to them during day or night, weekday or weekends and they were always prompt in responding to my naive questions :). They also made sure we were informed at every step from attending open houses to preparing offers to closing. This is exactly what I was looking for as a first time buyer. They even went above and beyond and connected us with different lenders, attorneys, and even home inspectors (they made sure that I did not feel forced into choosing a service from their connections). I can confirm that their connections beat my personal research, when I shopped around for these services. The entire home buying process was made so much simpler, thanks to Oak Realty!. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a new home.”
“Cannot say enough about Pamela Bathen as a broker. She handled both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one. Absolutely top notch attentive service every step of the way. Above and beyond what we might expect from one of those large ‘national’ firms. Pam has contacts everywhere and could point us to the other attendant services we needed (handyman, designer, trash removal, etc.) Her partner Steve Greenberg was also a tremendous help. We are confident our home was in perfect shape for the market and we received top dollar. Recommend without hesitation.”
“We worked with Pam Bathen at Oak Realty in May, 2021 to buy a new home - she was our buyer's agent. We'd planned on buying/moving last year, but put things on hold because of Covid and all of the uncertainty that brought with it. So, we were really eager to move this summer, but had a lot of stress given the craziness of the housing market. Pam's experience in the area that we were looking in meant that she was able to give us a lot of advice on and insight into the house we ultimately decided to buy, and that advice was integral to how we crafted our offer - which ultimately got accepted! Pam made the whole process feel easy, and really went above and beyond in making sure that everything we needed was taken care of - even after the purchase was complete. She helped coordinate some of the people we had come do some work at the house (painters, radon testing and abatement, etc.) which meant that we could concentrate on packing and moving, all while knowing that the house would be ready for us. We'd recommend her in a heartbeat. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.”
“I loved working with Pam from start to finish. Her personality is great!! Throughout our selling and buying process she was amazingly professional. She was always responsive even when she couldn't be available. My husband and I worked with her extensively prior to putting our house on the market. She came to our home multiple times with advice and pointers to help us prepare. Once we were finally set, she priced and sold our home for well over asking. When it came to the purchase of our new home, she offered her opinions respectfully, and professionally. She allowed us all the time we needed to find what we were looking for demonstrating her deep understanding of how personal finding the right home was. As soon as we found what we were looking for, she jumped on top of it in the hardest buyer's market our economy has ever seen. She helped make our offer in exactly the right way and we won our house. I am certain without her knowledge and great instincts we would not have been able to get the house of our dreams. I cannot thank Oak Realty, and more specifically Pam enough! -Alisha Brunetti”
