The title of “real estate agent” does not apply to Jonathan. He is the ultimate cross between a fine home connoisseur and a high-level diplomat. Jonathan’s skills and instincts make him the quintessential representative for either side of your real estate equation.
Lisa and Jeff Leiden
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.
Jonathan expertly represented me for the sale of Cohasset Harbor Resort. Jonathan developed a target list of investors and attracted interest from local and national buyers. 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.
Jonathan is a master broker and more. I have referred his services to clients for years and each thanked me profusely, raving about his service. This year my husband and I engaged him for our own real estate matters and we now understand exactly what everyone else saw. Jonathan balanced personal mentorship with an in-depth understanding of the ‘market’, and all the parties at the table. He took care of everything big and small with expertise, grace and good cheer. Master broker.
Cheryl and Elazer Edelman
The challenge of marketing a cherished family home in an estate sale is never easy. Jonathan successfully navigated through a host of difficulties and satisfied the wishes of multiple stakeholders. He is a true master of his craft.
Charming, brilliant, and focused, Jonathan Radford magically accomplishes what he sets out to do!
Most professional real estate agent we've ever dealt with. Knew the marketplace cold and made our sale effortless. Five stars for JR.
Carol & Alan LeBovidge
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 complete respect for the buyers and their agents. 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 ensure that all conditions 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!
Clare Warburton & Michael Hamer
Thanks to Jonathan’s sound advice and exceptional preparatory work, after just two weeks on the market we had an offer on our long time and much-loved family home. Then he really got to work and used a lifetime of experience and wisdom to manage both buyer and seller through the joy and challenges of an accelerated closing. I can’t imagine a more capable partner to the process.
Jonathan was excited by the challenge of finding us the perfect property. He proved to be an excellent 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.
Becca and Micah Adler
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 a buyer 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.
Larry Marks and Doris Toby Axelrod
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.
Jim and Joanne Halpin
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 closed on our home, he has been an invaluable source of information for service providers and other professionals. We are delighted to recommend Jonathan!
Deborah and Randy Barker
Jonathan represented us in a significant international transaction. His expert knowledge of international property markets and his extensive international contacts allowed him to achieve a sale that exceeded our expectations. 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.
Barbara and Charles Waite
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.
Alfreo, Hollye and Deanna Nino
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.
Mark P. Goshko
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.
Genine & Josh Tillotson
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.
Fern Frolin and Mitch Kaplan
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.
Sibley Reppert & Chris Vezetinski
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. Jonathan's vision of how we could adapt the space for our lifestyle helped us make this purchase decision. We would recommend Jonathan for your next real estate transaction.
Amy and Ben-Liou
I have worked with thousands of sales associates across the Eastern Seaboard and Northeast and I can truly say that Jonathan Radford is a consummate real estate professional. 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.
Roni Boyles, National Director, Public Relations | Coldwell Banker NRT LLC
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.
Ann & Steve Lord
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.
If you have a busy professional life, whether you are a buyer or a seller, Jonathan is your agent. His extensive market research (updated regularly) is fundamental to his recommendations for pricing, market activity and expectations. His wide experience in realty has given him the ability, skill and the talent to negotiate optimum transaction terms for his clients. Nothing was too much for Jonathan. I was very comfortable leaving ALL details to Jonathan to execute and complete the sale/purchase. For anyone who needs a realtor in this very challenging market, Jonathan Radford is your man.
It was certainly a pleasure to work with Jonathan. His in-depth, specific market knowledge, experience and confidence, put my mind at rest throughout the entire process. Jonathan's availability and almost instantaneous responses, along with his attention to detail, was exceptional. I believe that Jonathan's strategic approach helped me sell my condominium in a faster and more efficient manner than any other broker could have. It is without question that I would highly recommend Jonathan Radford.
Jonathan was excellent in providing guidance on the negotiation which resulted in the sale of our property. Through his assistance, we received the fairest price possible in a difficult market
Micky and Dan Thal
When we decided to list our condominium for sale we did not hesitate to enlist Jonathan's services. We could think of no one better qualified to represent our interests, to attract and engage with prospective buyers and to successfully navigate us through the troubled waters of a challenging housing market. 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 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 providing us with all the information we needed and requested. We would recommend him enthusiastically.
Art and Jane Boland
Jonathan has represented me as a buyer’s agent and as a seller’s agent. I believe that in each transaction Jonathan’s in-depth knowledge of the real estate market and general economic conditions allowed him to negotiate the best terms possible for me. I would highly recommend Jonathan for your next real estate transaction.
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 profession
Lara and Tom Whiteley
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. Deals close and the client is truly satisfied.
Neil Golden, Esq., Gilmartin Magence LLP
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, the most professional and easy to work with. The results for me have always been superb.
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.
Jill & Robert Ammerman
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.
Mary MacVey & Fred Hunt
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.
Colin and Tilly, Dover, MA
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.
Fred and Christina Wilhelm
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.
Graeme & Anna Dalziel
As a past Director of New England’s Global Luxury property division, I often had 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.
Charles Orr, Past Director of New England’s Global Luxury Division
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.
Mary Ann Watts
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.
Nat and Betsy Mullener
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.
Jonathan has been an outstanding agent at Coldwell Banker Realty for over 25 years. He has established many of the area’s price point records for his sellers and holds the company record for its highest priced sale. Jonathan’s two decades worth of personal market research and his astute negotiating ability allow him to guide his seller and buyer clients to make the most informed decisions. Jonathan’s expertise stretches across Massachusetts and he has an established national and international network of colleagues who can represent you across the country and around the world. It gives me great pleasure to recommend Jonathan for your next real estate transaction.
Ken Tutunjian, SVP, Manager, Coldwell Banker Realty
Dealing with Jonathan was a delight. He is extremely professional and approaches his work in a 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.
Bill and Patty Holmberg
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.
Steve & Ann Lord
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.
Marcy Gefter and Tom Lemberg
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.
Gerry Izzi and Dan Doherty
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.
Jeanne & Walter Slaboden
Jonathan’s professionalism is top notch. His expertise in marketing and real estate research on our historical property was above par. Our family was delighted to have him sell the property while handling every detail with care. Words cannot convey how much we appreciate all that Jonathan was able to accomplish during such a short span of time.
Dolores Sablone and Family
Jonathan Radford makes selling one home and searching for another more like planning a wonderful vacation with an incredibly knowledgeable friend. Major hurdles become simple blips quickly resolved with his abilities to listen, anticipate, work amazing well with others and make you feel as though you were his one and only client. An absolute master at his craft
Helen and Ray Killian
Jonathan's encyclopedic knowledge of the Boston residential real estate market is unmatched, which is such a comfort to his clients as they make one of the biggest decisions of their lives. Beyond that he is patient, calm, affable, intuitive and accessible. Jonathan has our unqualified endorsement.
Tom and Laurie Saylak
Jonathan acted for my wife and me in connection with the sale of our residence and was able to achieve a very favorable price for us even as the market was softening for sellers. There are several things that distinguish Jonathan from other agents, including among other qualities encyclopedic market knowledge, outstanding judgment, exceptional strategic thinking, scrupulous attention to detail and tireless client service. What struck us most however was Jonathan’s effervescent enthusiasm for his work. He loves what he does and that made every exchange that we had a true pleasure. So – excellent economic results and a delightful experience – it doesn’t get any better.
Early in our home search we identified a community where we would like to live. Since there were no homes for sale at that time, Jonathan immediately began working through his network of professional contacts and potential sellers. Because of Jonathan’s proactive efforts, he enabled us to buy a home in our desired area that we might not have otherwise learned about. We’re very happy living in our new home, and credit Jonathan with making it possible.
As newcomers to Boston, a trusted advisor told us there was only one realtor that we should consider using. The advice was sound!! Jonathan navigated expertly and professionally the sale of a challenging property in a difficult market.
Linda and Alf Merriweather
Since we were relocating from out of state, we relied on Jonathan’s keen eye and depth of knowledge in the marketplace. His valuable input and intuition helped guide us to our dream home. We couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend Jonathan.
Erin and Mark Wendell
I have rarely encountered someone as professional, as thoughtful, or as knowledgeable about their domain as Jonathan. Jonathan found us our dream home in a single weekend, then effortlessly guided us through the purchase process while shielding us from a host of risks that emerged.
Client Name Withheld
As an out-of-state owner, I could count on Jonathan to be on the scene representing me, ready to diplomatically solve the most difficult issues and to attend to all the details necessary to complete the sale honestly, ethically and competently.
Jonathan was recommended to us by dear friends when we needed help with our search for two residences in Boston, as our daughter made an international move to attend college and we sought a second home nearby. He was wonderful to work with as we navigated a challenging market and tight timeframes - very savvy, responsive to our needs and diligent on every issue. Jonathan went above and beyond to find the perfect homes for our family and to ensure that our move to Boston went
Donna & Mike Corbat
I have known Jonathan for over 20 years and consider him a good friend. He has successfully represented many sellers in my building, and has an excellent reputation for his outstanding level of professionalism. When I decided to list my condominium with Jonathan, I was confident that he would apply his 30 years of experience to negotiate expertly on my behalf. I was delighted with how he handled the sale of my home.
We just moved to the Boston area from California and were blessed to be referred to Jonathan. When you know so little about a place you are incredibly dependent on someone who not only knows the area - but who really cares to get to know you. Jonathan really took the time to understand what we needed, and was a constant force to ensure we weren’t pressured by the tough market. We could not have done it without him!
Jimmie and Stacey Pugh
My family and I have had the pleasure of working with Jonathan in several real estate transactions. His professionalism, due diligence, and remarkable understanding of quality and value have made him one of the finest real estate professionals in the market.
We first met Jonathan when we bought our house (he was the seller’s agent). Jonathan made such a great impression on us that when, 12 years later, we decided to put our house on the market we had no doubts about who to contact to be our agent. It was our first experience of selling a house and Jonathan made everything easy for us. He was always highly professional, patient and super accurate. We managed to sell the house during the inception of the pandemic and Jonathan was always very reassuring and confident, and that was a terrific help. We would recommend Jonathan to all our friends. It has been a great pleasure and honor getting to know him and working with him.
Letizia Longo & Pier Paolo Pandolfi
I knew when I asked you to be my broker, that I’d get a person I could trust implicitly, who has a great deal of experience. What you did for me went well beyond that. You listened, offered your expert advice, and always were patient and pleasant. My cherished home ended up selling at the highest price per square foot in the whole neighborhood, within a couple of days. It all went so smoothly, I’m forever in debt to you, thank you again.
A trusted, long-time friend highly recommended Jonathan, based on her extremely positive experience of working with him in three past transactions. I was so pleased with how he simultaneously represented my best interests and understood the needs of the potential buyers, thus successfully and expeditiously achieving our respective goals.
We had the pleasure of dealing with Jonathan on the purchase of a great condo in Boston for our son while he was attending college. We also had the pleasure of working with him to sell the condo after our son's graduation. We were amazed at how quickly we got responses at almost any time from Jonathan, and he was able to help the new buyer close the deal in ten days and get their son in the same condo within 2 weeks. We were incredibly impressed with how Jonathan made this happen, and we look forward to working with Jonathan on other projects in the near future. He is a pleasure to work with and a real gentleman.
Jay Hanflig and Donna Sinden
We knew from the moment we met Jonathan we had found an agent whom we could trust. Trust he would market our home with professionalism and integrity. Trust that he believed in the property and price. Trust that he would present our home to buyers with great care and respect. From listing to closing we were never disappointed. Truly a very nice and very smart person - great to have on your team.
Caryn and Paul Appelbaum
We struggled selling our high-end home with several other realtors before engaging Jonathan. His professionalism was a breath of fresh air and his strategy and partnership were exactly what we needed to achieve our goals. After a remarkably smooth sales process, Jonathan helped us narrow in on precisely what our family was looking for, then helped us navigate the buying process to get us into our new home in record time!
Leo and Lia O'Donnell
It seemed an impossible task. How could we, living in California, possibly find a home for our daughter who is starting her career in Boston? In just two visits, Jonathan showed us a carefully curated yet comprehensive selection of homes that provided us with an understanding of the highly complex Boston market. The esteem with which Jonathan is regarded coupled with his respect for the seller’s representative resulted in what was more of a collaboration than a negotiation in finding a lovely and safe home -- in a socially vibrant location -- for our daughter. Jonathan’s extraordinary talents turned what could have been an onerous quest into a wonderful family adventure.
Janice (Wes) Brown & Andrew Hoffman
Real Estate Agent doesn’t come close to describing what Jonathan is. He’s a trusted partner, advisor, and strategist when it comes to finding the perfect luxury home in Boston. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my friends and colleagues.
Nia Tatsis and Evan Tzanis
Jonathan has deep market expertise, takes the time to really understand his clients and what they are looking for in a home, and provides honest, useful guidance. He also has wonderful taste and is a pleasure to spend time with along the journey.
Matt and Nina Devlin
When my sister and I interviewed Jonathan as a prospective realtor for the sale of our mother's Brookline home, we knew immediately that we had found the best. We joked that evening that we would make hiring him contingent on his remaining friends with us for life. He is a brilliant realtor, and a delightful presence. In his hands, the transaction was swift, low-stress, lucrative, and flawlessly professional.
Jonathan represented us recently in the sale of our Boston, Ritz-Carlton condominium. From the very beginning of the process to the conclusion of the transaction he was truly masterful at bringing everything together. His professionalism, thoroughness, depth of market understanding, supported by a data and fact-based approach to the circumstances, served us well. If clarity of mind and concise explanations to circumstances and events matter, as well they should, Jonathan also brings this very important value-added dimension to the client conversation.
Michael and Judy Mee
A one of a kind 63-acre ocean front property in one of the most exclusive areas of America is on a completely different playing field for most investors and the pool of buyers is very limited. Jonathan in his most proper and professional manner managed to seek out such a buyer and bring to a successful conclusion the sale of our family compound on Nantucket. His professionalism and dedication is exemplary. I would highly recommend him as he is truly devoted to his craft!!
My family interviewed several top-notch, Boston area real estate agents and chose Jonathan to handle the sale of our home. Jonathan guided us through every step, produced a stunningly beautiful marketing video of our unique property, and within days negotiated an offer that exceeded our expectations. Perfection!
Our family engaged Jonathan to sell our parents’ home of nearly 60 years. He was sensitive and patient with us and worked diligently and creatively to feature the opportunities of our beloved home. Jonathan’s reputation as the consummate professional was evident from the start of the process to its close. He set timetables that were achievable, and the multiple offer sale closed very quickly. I would highly recommend Jonathan for his understanding and expertise.
I can't imagine anyone being more involved, more bountiful with great advice, more on the mark and affable than Jonathan Radford who guided us through the sale of our home in Cambridge. You want the best possible result? You'll want Jonathan as your agent!
Twenty years ago when I purchased my home at the Belvedere in Boston, Jonathan was the listing agent. I was very impressed with his representation of the property, so when the time came for me to sell this home, I did not hesitate to engage him as my agent. In a challenging real estate market, Jonathan negotiated the terms of a sale that exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Jonathan.
Jonathan helped us find our ideal home. We were blown away by his in-depth market knowledge and his superb advice on how to maintain or renovate a house well. We were most grateful that Jonathan always put himself in our shoes, constantly thinking and advising us from our perspectives instead of purely from an agent’s point of view. This made him extremely reliable and trustworthy. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Jonathan to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a house.
I have known Jonathan for over 20 years and selected him as the real estate agent to help me downsize to a smaller home now that my children are grown. I was very happy with the way Jonathan helped me to find and buy a new home, frequently going beyond what was required. I would recommend him without reservation.
When we acquired our condo this summer, Jonathan served as both the seller and buyer agent. He demonstrated exceptional responsiveness, meticulous attention to detail, and ensured a seamlessly smooth and painless buying process. I wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in Boston.
Jonathan served as my agent when I sold my Boston condo this fall. He not only excelled as a real estate agent, making the entire process seamless, but also showcased his expertise as a master interior decorator. Jonathan provided creative staging ideas that transformed the condo, resulting in a fabulous presentation. Remarkably, my condo sold within 24 hours of hitting the market! A heartfelt thank you to Jonathan for his outstanding work!
Jonathan has been an absolute rock, entirely dependable and admirable in the way he has supported us through both a purchase and then a complicated sale. He came highly recommended by friends, a recommendation that we would not hesitate to pass on.
It is Jonathan’s ability to deal with the unanticipated issues and opportunities that are critical to a successful transfer of real estate that make him the outstanding force in real estate that he has earned and enjoys. Jonathan found us the perfect Boston home in 2003 and represented us when we sold it in 2023.

Jonathan's experience and professional dedication, during a tough retail market, made all of the difference for the sale of our estate in Dover. He knew the clientele and approach to sell our home and never tired of the effort needed to find the right family. After years of purchasing and selling real estate, we can honestly say Jonathan is the real deal and the best in the business!

Jonathan represented me for the purchase of my home in the Back Bay. In a market that was low on inventory, his determination resulted in the identification and eventual purchase of a home that exceeded my expectations. Jonathan’s market knowledge and negotiating strategy allowed me to feel completely comfortable with my offer in a competitive bid situation.
I could not have been in more professional hands. Jonathan took his time and effort with such attention to detail. As well as his superb marketing of my condominium, Jonathan brought me to the completion of the sale that I was hoping for. My lovely home of many years was treated with great respect and I was truly satisfied.
Jonathan expertly sold my first home. When it came time to sell my second home several years later, I did not hesitate to contact Jonathan. His wisdom and insight is second to none. I never doubted that every effort was being made to sell my home swiftly and profitably. Jonathan is a problem solver and will be my first choice for a realtor when I need one in the future.
Jonathan is one of the most knowledgeable real estate professionals. His market knowledge is of the most intricate level. He is well regarded by other agents with whom he works to market the properties he represents. I have observed his keen ability to overcome objections and his creativity in highlighting the positive aspects of the property he represents. Jonathan has also demonstrated tremendous commitment to his clients in the face of adverse situations in the marketplace. I highly recommend his services.
