"For two years, 46 Suffolk Road in Chestnut Hill was listed with another firm and did not sell. Historic Homes was asked for our recommendation. We believed the house would sell if it were centered on the 2.5-acre lot rather than placed right against the property line. The client liked our approach, so we procured permission from Newton's Historic Commission then marketed the home. Two weeks later, it sold for a significant profit."
We've never moved a mountain to sell a home. We have moved a foundation.
Clients came to us to help them find an undervalued older home. That's when we discovered a home in Chestnut Hill, which was accessed from a busy street. We had a feeling that the home was a bargain. Our instincts were confirmed when we researched the plot plan and discovered the driveway could be moved to a nearby private road. Our clients purchased the home for less than asking price and by moving the driveway, added upwards of $50,000 to the value of the property.
We had a hunch this home had money the ground. When we dug into the paperwork, we confirmed it.
"We contracted with Miceal and Conor Chamberlain in 2020 to sell our Brookline house. That February, Boston suffered a series of monumental snowstorms. Every home in the neighborhood had ice damns - including ours. We thought we would have to cancel a planned family vacation, out of state, due to the serious damage to our home. Historic Homes came to the rescue. They oversaw the repairs while we went on vacation and this was just the beginning. They brought in their design-build company partner to update the kitchen/playroom area and what a transformation on a moderate budget. Within a couple of weeks, we had an offer. Their help didn't end there. They connected us to vendors in their vast network. Their talent and connections made preparing our house to sell, the inspection and sales process, plus our move go smoothly and painlessly."

Conor and Micéal were critical as our buyer’s broker in helping us navigate a competitive bidding process and an older home with inspection issues. Their extensive knowledge of the local market and responsiveness made them great to work with and we would not hesitate to refer them to our friends.”
“I can not say enough good things about Micéal and Conor Chamberlain! My transactions, both the sale and two purchases went very smoothly due to their work ethic, dedication to make sure things went smoothly, and their knowledge of the market. I always felt like I was in good hands. They were both very professional, very thorough, knowledgeable and working with them was a pleasure! I will absolutely be using them in the future. Overall they were ethical, responsive, detail oriented and great strategist, all the qualities you would want in your realtor!“
"It is stressful enough selling a home but daunting during a pandemic. Erica Chamberlain at Historic Homes made it smooth and painless! No challenge is too big for Historic Homes! From creating virtual marketing materials to navigating showings, and ultimately finding a buyer, they were on top of every facet of the process."
"Becoming empty nesters, we downsized from a beautiful historical home to a new construction townhouse. We thought that selling and buying a house in the middle of COVID would be overwhelming but Erica made it easy. They met inspectors while we were away, connected us with junk removers, stagers, and even a company to shred our documents safely in their secure van in our driveway. We highly recommend this team."
