Testimonials for John & Maria Reilly

“I am very grateful to John and Maria Reilly for all their assistance with helping me sell my home in Cambridge. They were a complete pleasure to work with and appreciated the sentiments tied to selling a family home. They guided me through every step of the process and gave me honest,straightforward advice. Their unique partnership and complementary styles offers so much more to the client than a single realtor could. I trusted their advice completely and was very satisfied with every aspect of the sale of my home. I would most definitely recommend John and Maria to anyone I know who is selling or wanting to purchase a home. I was very lucky to have them as my realtors and I would make the same decision again.”

Seller – Multi-family

“Our home for 35 years was emptied, and we planned to put it for sale in 2014. It was badly damaged over winters 2014-2015 and 2015-2016, requiring much work. In capable of handling all that was required, we had Maria and John referred to us by mutual friends. That referral changed our lives in many positive ways. Their high character came first, and as we progressed together with endless discussions and decisions to be made, all five of us worked “as one”, in solidarity and respectfully. Various contractors and salespeople were contacted and dealt with as goals were set in motion by both John and Maria and by ourselves toward the ultimate goal of offering a splendid property for sale to people looking for something “special”. We remain very pleased with John and Maria’s having worked with us, and we continue to have the kind of “carry-over” friendship modern people yearn for.”

“We will always remember our first time meeting John and Maria. On a whim, we walked into an open house to be met with freshly baked cookies, and warm smiles. As we toured the property, with plenty of cookies to sustain us, we immediately felt at ease with their friendly, relaxed style. It was readily apparent in their responses to our questions that they were honest, intelligent, and very knowledgeable about the property. After meeting up with them over coffee, we hired them as our agents. They were highly accommodating to our ever changing work schedules, and really took the time to help us explore our wants and needs. We knew we were in good hands, so we were able to focus on the exciting possibilities of home ownership instead of the stress of the buying process. Without John and Maria, we would never have even explored the town, let alone, the house we now call our home. It was a great experience, and we highly recommend working with them.”

“John and Maria Reilly epitomize all that is good with realtors. While home buying and selling can be extremely stressful occasions no matter if a first time buyer or repeat buyer or seller, John and Maria Reilly put their years of experience to work. They map out a strategy to determine the best course of action for their clients, cognizant of the many facets of the real estate market and especially their clients’ needs. They are always available – day or night – no matter what your question may be and go above and beyond. We have recommended them to other friends and family members who have also been very satisfied. We recommend them to the umpteenth degree and we can’t say enough good things about them.”

“John and Maria go above and beyond to meet their client’s needs. They not only patiently worked with us to find the right property and answered difficult questions, but also made great recommendations for professionals to close the deal and do some remodeling work. We felt that John and Maria deeply cared about our success and made the whole buying process feel seamless and easy. We can’t imagine using any other real estate agents on our future purchases and sales.”

“Maria and John are amazing. They were both very supportive with all of our needs and wants, but were also very honest as well. I wouldn’t have had it any other way than to be their clients.”

Lauren and Chris

“As a first time buyer, I was able to purchase the home of my dreams thanks to John and Maria. They guided me through all the steps, including setting me up with a mortgage broker and real estate attorney. They were very helpful and informative in finding me the right home for my needs.”


Testimonials for Jeanette E. Cummings

“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.”

Julie and Brendan

“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!”

Dina and Miles

“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!”
