Letters to Bob

Here are some of the recommendations I have received from people whom I have helped to buy and sell homes.


Libby and I could not have been happier with the services Bob provided or the results he achieved on our behalf.

I have never met anyone as skilled at his or her particular profession or as motivated to do a job thoroughly and well.  I give Bob the highest possible recommendation.      B. R., Esq. (Sold a property)


Thank you for your diligent effort in the sale of our Cambridge condominium.  It was a  great success in difficult times.  You and your staff made the whole process very easy for us with a minimum of disruption and helpful suggestions along the way.       B.L.  (Sold a property)


What I liked best about the service provided:

  Bob Filene's persistence.

  Bob Filene's ability to show me properties which matched my needs.

   A. D.  (Purchased a property)


Bob Filene was persistent, courteous, had creative ideas, and was tolerant of the problem of dealing with me at a distance (owner lived in Virginia).

He was recommended to me by another Realtor.  I recommend him to others.   C. H. (Sold a property)


I want to thank you for the professional handling, Bob.  It is not often I get a satellite  telephone communication from my real estate broker while on vacation in the Caribbean.  You are truly diligent and I intend to utilize your services for any future purchases in the Cambridge area.

   F. W. J.  (Purchased a property)


I want to thank you for the truly splendid assistance you provided me in my quest in Cambridge and Somerville. I was referred to you by a lender because a broker from a different agency wasn't doing very much for me, and the difference in approach was instantly visible.

You kept me up to date on new properties, changes in listings, and open houses, and were very helpful indeed in the course of showing me listings.  If I know of people looking in the Cambridge area, I will refer them to you.

      E. J. A.


Jon and I have discussed at length what about you it was that made each conversation in person or on the phone so reassuring. We agreed that it was your integrity. In a business where the hard sell seems to prevail, your calm demeanor, wry sense of humor and serious attention to what mattered to us really impressed us. Without your promptly returned calls, sound advice and boundless energy, we surely would have crumbled from the stress of the whole process. Luckily, all worked out well.


Our immediate plans for the house are in the spring to do the curb cut and upgrade the electricity. Then, onto more fun projects like the new kitchen of our dreams. The house already looks a million times better than before and any time you are in the area, feel free to ring the new doorbell and take a look. Thank you again for the seriousness with which you took us as first time buyers. We will recommend you to everyone who is looking for the best experience possible in real estate.

Sincerely,     M.V. and J.C.  (Bought a property)
