“The task of securing office space was the number-one concern when I recently left my employer to start my own architectural practice. Although I’ve bought residential property in the past, I did not know the first thing about commercial leasing. What’s available, what are the numbers, what are the terms, will I need a lawyer . . . just too many questions. Jeanette’s calm approach and confidence helped me relax and take it one step at a time. She is a consummate professional with a no-nonsense approach, while also maintaining a warm and down-to-earth demeanor. I wish her services extended beyond real estate because I would hire her for anything she might offer to do. Thank you, Jeanette ! “

“My husband and I could not have been more thrilled with our experience working with Jeanette Cummings of JMR Real Estate Group. We were very fortunate to meet Jeanette through an open house we had stumbled upon and ended up working with her for two years to find our forever home. Our journey was filled with ups and downs and many offers (and even another baby).
The Boston housing market is not for the faint of heart, but every single aspect of working with Jeanette was a pleasure. Jeanette is exceptionally knowledgeable about real estate logistics, but we were also impressed by and grateful for her knowledge about homes and systems. She is patient, responsive, helpful and diligent – all wonderful and necessary qualities in someone helping you buy your home. But most importantly, Jeanette is truly nice. She treated everyone she engaged with on our behalf with kindness and respect which we really admired and appreciated.
We very much felt Jeanette always had our best interests in mind, and felt supported throughout the entire process, even after the buying. We have said multiple times to each other that the only downside to working with Jeanette is that eventually we won’t need her anymore. We would never think of using another realtor and could not more highly recommend her. Thank you Jeanette!”

“This letter is written with the highest recommendation for our buyer’s agent, Jeanette Cummings, of JMR Real Estate Group. At the beginning of what would end up being an 18 month search for a new home, our first step was to find an agent who we felt comfortable with. As luck would have it, we were referred to Jeanette, and knew immediately upon speaking to her that she was the right fit. Jeanette offered the perfect balance of patience and persistence, guiding us, but not pushing us in our search. We had multiple criteria that we were looking to fulfill, and Jeanette respected our needs and desires while at the same time offering different perspectives to consider. Her responsiveness by phone or email was always quick, and she always made time to accommodate our needs, whether it was a last-minute showing or putting in an offer quickly to be competitive in today’s market. Her level of experience was invaluable, as she always had knowledgeable advice and pointers that we would not have thought of on our own. Despite it taking over a year for us to find the right home, Jeanette remained a calm and gracious presence, never making us feel we were taking “too long.” Having just bought and sold a home, we are well aware of how stressful the whole process can be. Jeanette’s calm and level headed demeanor was a welcome respite from all that stress and was certainly a key part of our success. We are happy to give back and offer this testimonial for Jeanette, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in this challenging real estate climate.”

“Jeanette assisted me in selling my home in East Arlington after 25 years as a home owner. Not only was she extremely professional and knowledgeable she also did a masterful job staging the house so that it would be attractive to potential buyers. With Jeanette’s guidance and knowledge of the real estate market, my house sold after the first open house. Jeanette’s thoughtful, supportive and caring manner throughout the experience was very much appreciated by myself and my family. I highly recommend Jeanette if you are selling or buying a home. She is simply the best.”

“My family and I began to search for our first home during the fall of 2015. We stumbled across a condo for sale in our town and impulsively called the realtor for that property, which happened to be Jeanette Cummings. Jeanette not only responded immediately to our inquiry, she met us that afternoon and took us through the steps to begin our search as first-time home buyers. My husband and I felt instantly at ease and fully informed by Jeanette’s obvious experience and her patient approach to showing homes that were of interest to us. Jeanette also ensured that our 9 year old son had the opportunity to share his perspective on each property, which bolstered his confidence greatly. Throughout the journey of viewing homes and communities, researching public schools, redefining priorities, filling weekends with open houses, submitting offers and corresponding with Jeanette, we began to doubt the idea of buying a home. Friends and family reminded us to stay positive, which was not easy. In the attempt to lift our spirits, Jeanette stopped by our apartment one evening, following our 3rd offer, to gift us with a beautiful stone sculpture for our eventual new space. We were so grateful for her faith in us, as well as her consistency and thorough research on our behalf. With a renewed sense of optimism, we pressed forward and found our first home, with the endorsement of our son, just as Jeanette had intended. In hindsight, the whole process was perfectly aligned – we had put in our due diligence, Jeanette had stayed by our side and the end result was a happy home that we are all thrilled with! Jeanette’s level of expertise, calm demeanor, determined presence and high ethical standards propelled our search and quite literally made the purchase of our first home possible. Without her, we would still be searching. Our family highly recommends Jeanette Cummings as a realtor and experienced professional in the field of real estate (especially in this very competitive Boston market). Thank you, Jeanette! Our family is exceedingly grateful to you!”

“We had a wonderful experience working with Jeanette to find a new home. She listened to our needs and was thoughtful of our time as a busy family with young kids. She has a very knowledgeable and confident, candid approach. Jeanette’s excellent knowledge of the marketplace and home improvement/construction proved to be helpful in our negotiations and home inspection. If there was ever a question that she couldn’t answer, she was resourceful in finding an answer for us. We would highly recommend working with Jeanette and have recommended her more than once to friends and neighbors!”
