We had previously sold another property through Ed Deveau (Century 21- Mario Realty) and were very satisfied with the entire process and Ed¿s attention to details and professionalism. I would certainly recommend Ed and this office to a friend or relative.
Ed is the best by all accounts!
Ed Deveau is an expert negotiator with well developed diplomatic skills and a respectful demeanor that puts everyone at ease and reduces the potential anxiety and stress in the process. Ed is a true pro who clearly understands people and communicates exceptionally well.
Support services were seamless and flawless.
I can¿t imagine how it could have been any better, just excellent. ~ Mari and John Fusco 47 Lindenwood Road Stoneham, MA
We were lucky enough to work with Ed when it came to the purchase of a new house and sale of an existing condo. Ed was great in all aspects and even though there were many moving parts to this process, everything went smoothly and without issue. We would recommend Ed¿s services to anyone looking to buy/sell! ~ Mike Buhler
This was my first home purchase, renovation, and sale so while the emotional weight was heavy, Ed was able to help me breeze through the selling process and keep it stress free while I focused on getting the house ready and packing everything up. He knows the East Boston market very well and will advocate on your behalf! ~ Jen
Ed understands buyers needs call him to shop a few houses make an offer and let Ed do the rest that simple! ~ Rob G Middleton Ma
Selling with Ed was about as smooth as I could have imagined. He was responsive during every step in the process and always made time for our endless questions. I would highly recommend Ed to friends, family, and strangers. If you're looking for someone trustworthy, friendly, and knowledgable, Ed's your guy. ~ Leo Dornelas, Winthrop
Ed was awesome to work with. Always open for us to bounce idea's off of him, gave his opinion when he saw fit but did not push or force us into anything and understood our situation. His knowledge of East Boston was really fantastic to have, describing the different neighborhoods & what's on the horizon for this growing section of Boston. I really felt that he worked for us whether it be the punch list or working late on the weekends.
We had a less then ideal inspection on our first offer and he guided us first time home buyers through that and into a place that we can now call home.
I would be more then willing to recommend Ed to anyone looking in East Boston, especially first time buyers.
~ Kenny Savage
Ed was truly a pleasure to work with. No matter when, we were able to get in contact with him. He give us personal walking tours of the city, pointed out areas of growth and knowledge of other businesses or residential properties going in. He understood what exactly we were looking for and worked without our budget and our perimeters to find it.
He also was just truly a nice guy to be around, funny and approachable and easy to speak with. As first time home buyers, Ed took the time to get to know us, our styles, and made us less nervous to take such a big step. ~ Brianna, East Boston
Ed is a pleasure to work with and made the home buying experience less stressful.
Ed has extensive knowledge of the neighborhood. His experience and relationships allowed us to get a great deal that would not have been possible without him. ~ Christina Fisher, East Boston
It was a wonderful experience to work with Ed. My girlfriend was looking for a home and found her the perfect place. He also found me the perfect place and I didn't even know I was looking. Highly recommend Ed especially if you are looking in the East Boston area. ~ Chad, East Boston
Ed Deveau really made our selling experience easy. We would definitely work with Ed again in the future. Thank you!! ~ The Todisco Family
Ed was a wonderful agent for me. He is professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and worked hard to complete my listing and sale of my home.
Beyond these traits, he is a very caring and compassionate person, and friend. He considered my personal situation, and needs, during the entire process. I would strongly recommend him to anyone that is in need of a realtor.
Joe Mario, and his staff are very professional and caring individuals. I have known Joe, and many of his staff for many years, and would highly recommend this company.
My overall experience was very positive. Selling my home of 40 years, was a difficult decision to make, but having Ed to lead me through the process made it easier!
Ed is a wonderful person, and professional, in every stage of the process. ~ JoAnn Memmolo, East Boston
Two friends bought/sold with Ed previously and had nothing but the highest recommendations.
Ed went above and beyond with every aspect of my home buying process and was so patient with me though it all. I was a first-time home buyer and the process was so much more smooth and stress-free than I expected - and I know that is completely due to Eds professionalism, knowledge, experience, patience, respect, empathy and courtesy. He is the only person I will ever use to buy or sell a home in the future! ~ Cheri Rolfes, Winthrop
My husband and I purchased our first home with the help of Edward Deveau. The experience was nothing short of wonderful. From the moment we reached out with search criteria, to sifting through open houses, to negotiating our offer, to closing, Ed was there to answer every question and guide us through every step of the process. Ed was extremely knowledgeable and proficient in all aspects of home buying. He was extremely professional, responsive and an absolute joy to work with. I would highly recommend reaching out to Ed Deveau if you are in the market for a home. ~ Kelly Mario, Middleton
We would have been up a creek without Ed - our buyers fell through twice due to their financing and without Ed's optimism and steadfastness, we would have panicked. He had our loft relisted the first available moment and keep communication between us open and consistent the entire process. He went above and beyond for us and we couldn't have asked for a better broker & agent.
Ed's professionalism, calming presence and positive attitude are some of his finest qualities. I would highly recommend Ed to anyone looking for a broker/agent. Ed must have showed us 30 houses before we found "the one" and negotiated all of our requests quickly and to our advantage!
Ed Deveau was wonderful to work with and we truly appreciated everything he did for us on both selling our loft & purchasing our home. ~ Kate D.
Ed Deveau surpassed our expectations. He helped navigate a difficult sale (owing to the seller's team being excessively incommunicative) and we are thrilled to be in our new home. He was professional and thorough and we would recommend him to anyone. ~ Lauren Cronin
Ed was very professional worked very hard always answered the phone made the very satisfactory choices of introducing me with other much qualified personnel to make my transaction on buying and selling my properties great job highly recommended ~ Ken hanlon middleton
I've known Ed for over 30 years and he has always been a class act. Intimate knowledge of the area, strong sales and business acumen and most importantly, his style of client management is top notch. Ed handled the entire process from first contact to closing with grace and a confidence that you can only gain from being at the top of your game for many years. He's my go-to realtor for all of my future real estate transactions in the greater Boston area. ~ Jesse T Atlanta, GA
Extremely pleased with the service provided by Edward Deveau, CENTURY 21 Mario Real Estate . Edward was very knowledgeable and tentative to my needs. He made the experience fun and pleasant.
Again, thank you for an amazing job! ~ Raoul Goncalves 100 Saint Andrew Road, East Boston, MA 02128
We absolutely could not have been happier with our experience working with Ed. We had tried a few agents before him, but they all seemed to want to rush us into buying as soon as possible, and had little interest in learning about what we were actually looking for. Purchasing a home is a big deal (both financially and more personally as the place you will raise your family) and Ed takes both of these aspects very seriously. He was up front about being open to shopping with us "for years if necessary" until we found the right house. And even once we did, when we were still going back and forth, he never once pushed for us to move forward unless we were sure, and gave us honest and transparent feedback every step of the way. Not to mention he also turned out to be a great negotiator and saved us a substantial amount of money at closing. Throw on top of that the bottle of champagne he left in the house with a note saying "welcome home" the day we moved in--seriously, we could not have asked for more.
If you are looking to buy in Boston, especially in the East Boston/Orient Heights part of the city, do not consider buying with anyone else. His depth of experience was important, but ultimately it was his honesty and transparent professionalism that made all the difference. We could not be happier with our experience and purchase, and are very grateful to have had such great help in finding our first home. ~ Mark, East Boston
It was a big and emotional undertaking to sell our family property after 58 years in the family. From the first visit Ed and Joe M., I knew they had the chemistry, motivation, and Professionalism I wanted on my side.
And the relationship just got better through concerns, what to do, delays,and etc. I never once felt uncomfortable with Ed or Joe, never!
I would highly recommend Ed Deveau to anyone seriously interested in selling their property. Ed will get it done! It's as simple as that.
Thank You Ed, Joe and Century 21 ~ John Scavo, Manage, Our Family, LLC
I would highly recommend Ed Deveau to my family and friends. It was important to us tohave a realtor who fully understood the East Boston Market. Ed's the man. ~ John LoConte
I appreciated Ed's work as I have described in earlier comments. Worked to get the deal done. Understand the parameters of the arrangements being discussed. Could have blown us off but did not. Talked the seller into understanding deal terms. We all got what we wanted. Txxx ~ Phil Giffee
Ed Deveau made this very difficult decision for me to sell my family home of over 76 years a very positive experience. He handled all aspects of this sale in a very professional manner, while guiding me through the entire process. I can't thank him enough for all that he did, as he went above and beyond to ensure that all my needs were met. I can't thank him and Joe Mario enough for all their hard work in the sale of my home. ~ Mary Scolastico, East Boston
Ed was always there to help if needed . He made this transition easy . Highly recommend him to sell or find a home for a family ~ Robert giovanniello peabody mass
Ed Deveau had our property under agreement at our asking price in one day!
Ed made the process go as seamlessly as possible.
Ed Deveau's performance was better than any other realtor I had previously worked with.
I would recommend Ed Deveau to anyone I know who is selling or buying real estate in the future. ~ Anthony Petruccelli, East Boston and Lynnfield MA
Ed was thorough, professional, organized & friendly. He explained everything in a way that was easy to understand & very re-assuring. Plus, Ed was very free with his extensive knowledge of the area, the market & his expectations of the situation - all of which made us feel like we were very well represented & extremely well taken care of. I would recommend Ed to anyone looking for a home, anywhere. Thank Ed!! ~ Ben & MIcaelah, Orient Heights
Agent was always available to answer questions - really appreciated being able to get in touch whenever I needed to. Also attended many open houses and provided insight and guidance.
Ed was honest and up front throughout the process. That approach definitely helped me as we began to make offers and negotiate on potential homes.
Ed helped me buy my first house without issue so I would say I'm extremely satisfied! ~ Katherine Painter, Winthrop
Ed should be called "Mr. East Boston!" He knows the community, knows the market, and was absolutely fantastic to work with. Highly recommend. ~ Melissa Surette
Every step in the process of buying our home was made clear and easy with Ed Deveau as our realtor. He was accessible to us whenever we had questions and was extremely knowledgeable about the entire home buying process. He worked well with the sellers realtor. From start to finish the process went very smoothly. We would gladly recommend Ed to any of our friends/family based on our home buying experience. ~ Sarah, West Roxbury
Ed was great to work with and always made us feel like important cients. He knew the area and market really well which is what initially drew us to him. We would certainly recommend his services to anyone selling a property in the same market. ~ Chris and Cara Bauer, East Boston
Mr Ed Deveau is very professional and pleasant to work with. He assisted in every way possible, including constant updates on offer, p&s, seller conditions, and overall information for a smooth transaction. Mr. Deveau emailed all parties including my attorney to keep everyone on track. Ed outperforms most people I have met in this business! It would be a pleasure to work with Ed in the future. After my transaction was completed I received a call and met Ed for a personal thank you, very progressional and classy.
Charles DiPrima ~ Charles DIPrima East Boston
