Jonathan made the sale so effortless – from listing to closing in less than 30 days and selling for more than the asking price. That’s what I call an outstanding result.
In my opinion, there is no one who can come close to the professionalism that you exhibit in the field of residential brokerage in the luxury residential marketplace.
When Jonathan represented me for the sale of my property, he created an environment that encouraged multiple offers and then expertly managed them to achieve the best set of sales conditions for me. It was a pleasure working with Jonathan as he seemed always to be on exactly the same page as me - if not a couple of chapters ahead at times.

Not only did he negotiate intricate selling terms with the buyer he procured, he then secured primary and secondary financing for the buyer to get the deal to closing. Jonathan’s personal attention and detail oriented approach to every aspect of this transaction proved once again why he is one of the top agents in Massachusetts.

Most professional real estate agent we've ever dealt with. Knew the marketplace cold and made our sale effortless. Five stars for JR.
Jonathan expertly represented my family for the sale of our Boston townhouse on Commonwealth Avenue. While he negotiated hard for us, he did so with a complete respect for the buyers and their agent. The high-level approach Jonathan brought to the negotiation allowed him to keep all the parties engaged until a set of sale conditions were developed that met the expectations of my family members. In addition, Jonathan was instrumental in facilitating the closing; he spent a great deal of time interacting with the various lawyers and contractors to make certain that allconditions of the Purchase & Sale Agreement were satisfied. My family is delighted to recommend Jonathan for your next luxury property transaction.
Jonathan was a wonderful buyer's agent for our property search in Boston. So wonderful, in fact, that a Jonathan was exactly what we wanted when we started to look for a house in London. Knowing the high standards he sets in all things, we asked Jonathan's advice on a London buyer's agent and he was able to find us someone we have been very happy with. I can't recommend Jonathan too highly - every house search should have one!
Jonathan was excited by the challenge of finding us the perfect property. He proved to be anexcellent listener and very patient as we spent time looking at properties. I valued his honest perspective, his broad knowledge of the industry, his unwavering confidence, and ultimately his ability to find us our wonderful home. Our home needed extensive renovation, so we hired his sister, Sacha Jacq, as our owner's rep and interior designer. Sacha is a force of creativity, organization and efficiency. If ever there was a power team in this business, it is Jonathan and Sacha.
We were buyers sans broker and Jonathan represented the seller. Yet he made us feel that he was on our side, dealing fairly and expeditiously with several difficult issues. Jonathan's list of buyer resources also proved invaluable. We can heartily recommend Jonathan to represent either abuyer or a seller in any residential real estate transaction. He was a pleasure to work with and his knowledge extended far beyond the local real estate market.
I decided to move back home to Florida and worked, again, with Jonathan to sell my Boston home. He and I agreed quickly on a good asking price and, before long, Jonathan was able to sell it for close to asking. He was, as he always has been, most professional and easy to work with. The results for me have always been superb.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jonathan. He listened to what we wanted and showed us twogreat condominiums on which we made offers. Neither worked out, however, and Jonathan was undeterred. The third deal worked out and we couldn’t be happier. Jonathan had our best interest as his priority. Additionally, Jonathan introduced us to his sister Sacha Jacq whose design and organizational skills have made our renovations painless. We highly recommend Jonathan and do consider him a new friend.
Jonathan Radford assisted us over an extended period of time in viewing real estate to purchase in Boston. From introducing us to the market, to identifying attractive properties, to ultimately closing on our purchase, he was the consummate professional. At the outset he showed us a variety of neighborhoods and a spectrum of homes. He understood our evolving priorities and was efficient with our time. When it came time to make an offer, he was an excellent guide in strategy and a negotiator on our behalf. Since we have closed on our home, he has been an invaluable source of information for service providers and other professionals. We are delighted to recommend Jonathan!

Jonathan has represented us locally and internationally with equal skill and superb results. We would highly recommend him for your next real estate transaction.
Jonathan has represented me both as a buyer’s agent and as a seller’s agent. In each of the three Boston transactions for which he was my representative, I was impressed by his market knowledge and his negotiating skills. I strongly recommend Jonathan for your next real estate purchase or sale.
It takes a very broad and deep knowledge of the Boston real estate market, as well as an extraordinary ability to interpret the wishes of a client, to put the two together to find the perfect property. It takes a great deal of skill and experience to then negotiate a fair and favorable settlement: from offer, to acceptance, to Purchase & Sales Agreement, to closing, and have everything go smoothly and quickly. We are amazed every time we visit not only the apartment but also the building and the neighborhood at Jonathan’s intuitive understanding of our search criteria.
Having worked with Jonathan over the course of many years, we can say without reservation that he is a consummate professional in the real estate industry. When the time came to sell our condominium, we naturally turned to Jonathan. Not only does he know the market, but he is detail oriented, a skilled negotiator, and extremely pleasant to work with. We strongly recommend Jonathan for your real estate needs, as he will make the process stress free and steer you in the right direction.
Jonathan was insistent that I look at a condominium that I was quite sure I would have no interest in. He persisted and I agreed to look to humor him. And, it turns out that he was right. I bought that condominium, with which I am very happy. I wouldn’t be here if Jonathan hadn’t understood what I wanted and guided me so well.
In every real estate transaction, a successful outcome depends upon an agent’s negotiating skills. Jonathan superbly negotiated for me as both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. As a buyer’s agent, he achieved a purchase price in line with my goals and market conditions. As a seller’s agent he negotiated the sale of two of my condominiums at the asking price. In each case he laid out a clear strategy; his in-depth market research and analytical skills were key to concluding transactions at the best possible terms for me.
Jonathan Radford is a rare mix of humor, practicality, business savvy and diplomacy. In a real estate market with very limited supply, he identified our dream house before we ever saw it and made the purchase of it a reality. Jonathan's attention to every detail went far beyond the call of duty. He was literally 24/7 on top of the home-purchasing process and constantly amazed us with his knowledge of everything from local contractors to building regulations. His ability to manage every nuance of the transaction while maintaining a calm and balanced outlook made working with him a true pleasure.
Jonathan represented us in our purchase of a condominium in the South End. We had sold our house in the suburbs and wanted to move back to town. Jonathan was recommended to us. He became both buyer’s agent and friend. He took the time to understand who we were and what type of home we were looking for. He steered us to properties and neighborhoods that would meet our goals and away from some that didn’t. He had a keen eye for workmanship and value, a good sense of fair market price, and an abundance of patience. In the end, he helped us find a home and neighborhood that we love for a fair price.
Jonathan represented me regarding the sale my mother’s home in Chestnut Hill. Jonathan was methodical in his approach. He brought in a team of craftsmen to work on the property before putting it on the market. He positioned the property perfectly from a pricing point of view. He expertly marketed the property to generate significant interest. Ultimately, he negotiated a price that exceeded my expectations. This was a complicated transaction. I recommend Jonathan highly. He is a true professional.
All transactions have their twists and turns. As our sellers’ agent, Jonathan was able to manage the expectations of all parties and keep everyone moving towards a common goal, the closing. We were impressed with how Jonathan dealt with all elements of the transaction and very pleased with the sale price he achieved for us.
When we purchased our condominium, Jonathan Radford was the seller's agent and we were not represented by a buyer's agent. We felt extremely comfortable working with Jonathan directly because we felt that he was accurately and honestly presenting the property.

His success is a reflection of his dedication and commitment to his clients and his expert knowledge of the market. I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to work so closely with him.
Jonathan represented me so well on the sale of a condominium several years ago that I contacted him when I was looking for another home. He was terrific. Not only did I have great confidence in his knowledge of the market and his ability to negotiate a fair deal, but he graciously continued to provide help and assistance after the closing. His contacts with contractors and other service providers are extremely helpful.
Jonathan has represented us as a buyers’ agent and as a sellers’ agent. For the recent sale of our home, Jonathan laid out a marketing strategy to capture the spring market and that’s exactly what we did. His efforts resulted in multiple offers and his negotiating skills resulted in a sale over the asking price.
Jonathan represented me for the sale of my Boston waterfront condominium. He created an intense level of interest in the property and within a few days negotiated a sale over the asking price - something rare in 2011.

When we decided to list our condominium for sale we did not hesitate to enlist Jonathan's services.

Throughout the process Jonathan was consistently responsive, helpful and reassuring, a consummate professional in every way. Ultimately he secured a full price offer for our home and managed all the details of a seamless transition. The new owners even wrote to me to praise Jonathan's professional services and to express their appreciation for his thoughtful and thorough attention to all of their questions and concerns. It is with unqualified enthusiasm that my husband and I recommend Jonathan Radford to anyone buying or selling real estate.

When we were moving from London to Boston we were referred to Jonathan by friends who met him in Norway. We were so happy with the way he represented us we referred him to colleagues moving to Boston from Italy. Pass on Jonathan’s business card with confidence knowing anyone you refer him to will be working with a dedicated professional.
I am always delighted to work with Jonathan and his clients on a real estate transaction as he brings a high level of organization to the process. Jonathan’s clients can depend on a level of expertise which I find to be unique. Whenever an issue arises that requires Jonathan’s input, a satisfactory resolution is always realized.

Jonathan was a pleasure to work with. We were very dependent upon his knowledge of the Boston market as he helped us navigate through a very exciting purchase.
When we decided to look for a Boston pied a terre in 2010, we were referred to Jonathan Radford by friends who were already enthusiastic clients of his. We immediately discovered why they were so keen in their recommendation. Jonathan was both knowledgeable and efficient in acquainting us with the local market, enabling us to zero in very quickly on the best options. Instead of an exhausting and frustrating process, working with Jonathan was stress-free, successful - and fun. His response time was amazing. Shortly before the Christmas holiday we wanted to view the property we eventually bought; we called Jonathan, who was already in London but secured an appointment for us that very day. Right through the very last negotiation and the final inspection, he attended to every detail with ultimate professionalism. We could not be happier with the result.
We met Jonathan and were very impressed with his professionalism, knowledge of the market, and, most importantly for us, his extensive marketing program. Jonathan was extremely committed, communicative and helpful in all aspects of the sales process. He is very personable, and we would not hesitate to work with him again.
As a businesswoman and real estate investor, I have developed a long-standing business relationship with Jonathan Radford based on his integrity - he has counseled me on when and what I should buy and indeed when and what I should not. In 2009, in a challenging real estate environment, Jonathan secured a full price offer for one of my investment properties within days of putting it on the market.
We find Jonathan to be professional, calm, reliable, personal and personable. That is why we bought and sold three properties with Jonathan. In each case we were often out of town, out of state, out of the country and out of touch. Knowing Jonathan was in control and looking after our interests made our travels even more enjoyable. We always feel in good hands with Jonathan.
We engaged Jonathan to sell our Boston apartment in August 2009. We had been impressed by his track record and energetic enthusiasm and were confident that he would do a good job for us. Of course we were very concerned by market conditions, which made the timing of the sale potentially problematic. Jonathan exceeded even our high expectations. His go to market timing plan was immaculate. His pricing and marketing strategies were excellent and his responsiveness outstanding. He really does respond immediately to emails. Best of all, of course, was that we completed the sale of our property in mid November at a price that fairly reflected the market value. Jonathan is a terrific professional who did a fantastic job for us.
As New England’s Director of Previews International, Coldwell Banker’s luxury property division, I often have the occasion to work with Jonathan in designing and implementing marketing programs for his high-end listings. He invariably shows professionalism, a superb degree of market knowledge, and a good business sense. An important bonus value that he brings to cosmopolitan Boston is his experience in the international marketplace and a productive network of contacts and agents around the world.
Jonathan has represented me as a buyer’s agent and as a seller’s agent. In each case I was impressed by his negotiation skills - he fought hard for me, achieved the best terms possible, yet did so in a respectful manner to the other party during each transaction. In a challenging market, where expert negotiating skills are paramount, I would highly recommend Jonathan.
It was a pleasure working with Jonathan. He was the utmost professional and I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell a property. Jonathan provided a detailed analysis of the real estate market as a whole and the two-bedroom Back Bay condominium market specifically. This knowledge was key to establishing a list price that generated interest in our property and a sense of urgency. We were very impressed with the speed at which our home was listed, the fantastic photography, and the timely and extensive communication regarding the showings. The handling of documents was seamless and we could rely on Jonathan to take care of everything.
We were hunting from a distance for a pied-a-terre in Boston, so we sorely needed someone who knew the place thoroughly. From the moment we contacted Jonathan, we knew we were in the right hands. Being the quick study he is, he sized up our needs and wants, toured us around every neighborhood that might appeal to us and educated us about the pros and cons of each. We'd parachute into town for a day or two and he would have our time scheduled and mapped out in the most efficient way possible, including downtime for us to be alone and discuss what we'd seen. His responsiveness, his fast feedback, his mastery of the real-estate scene - plus his sense of humor - were all impressive and made the experience both productive and fun.
My family's experience with Jonathan can be summed up in a single word: exceptional. Jonathan was on hand at every step of this process: from the initial viewing to the closing, and everything in between. He asked all the questions that a buyer should ask (and many we had never even thought about) and made sure that nothing was overlooked. Jonathan was meticulous in his attention to detail and we felt confident with him representing our family in this transaction. What makes Jonathan so tremendously successful at what he does is his honesty and integrity. These characteristics are also what one looks for in a friend and my family has found that in Jonathan.

He is sharp and on his game at all times. I can highly recommend Jonathan for your next real estate transaction. I can pass on his business card with confidence and so can you.
Dealing with Jonathan was a delight. He is extremely professional and approaches his work in a most diligent manner. His thorough market research kept us informed of market conditions. The listing process was effortless on our part, and his extensive clientele enabled us to reach a very broad base of potential buyers. He didn't waste our time with unnecessary showings and open houses. We highly recommend Jonathan Radford to others seeking diligent and professional representation.
Most real estate transactions include at least one twist or turn which needs to be addressed - often at the eleventh hour and frequently at night or on a weekend! Such was the case with us and Jonathan handled it immediately, professionally and with good cheer. It all turned out very well for us.
Jonathan provided superb service in selling our condominium. He has great knowledge of the market and a keen sense of value. He was easy to deal with and respectful of our time and privacy. He encouraged us to price our home well, better than other advice we were given. He developed a superb marketing plan and then, when we found a buyer at a good price within days, he did a splendid job of shepherding the transaction until it closed.
While we started out thinking we were hiring Jonathan to market and show our home, we realized at the end of the process that he earned his entire commission in the way he handled multiple offers and negotiated the sale of our home superbly.
We purchased and sold our Boston pied-a-terre through Jonathan. He represented us extremely well as both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. Jonathan adapted his experience and market research to allow us to be fully informed about both our purchase and our sale. Jonathan was recommended to us by a friend and we would recommend him to our friends.
