Program Review:

The home buying process can be extremely overwhelming and stressful especially when you’re a couple buying a home for the first time and in very competitive market that is the greater Boston area. When we found the Teacher Next Door Program, Shannon and I we’re both skeptical at first because on paper, it seemed to good to be true. We spoke with James Ward who gave us a basic rundown of the program and put us in contact with Jesse Mason (Realtor). After our first meetings with James and Jesse, Shannon and I decided to try the program out and we could not be more thrilled with the results. James could not have been more helpful with the mortgage side of the process.  He spent hours going over the terms, numbers, and different options that we had making sure we understood everything perfectly. He also helped put our minds at ease when we started to nervous because of how large the numbers looked on paper. James always put things in perspective for us but made sure we knew our options but never made us feel pressured. Jesse was an outstanding Realtor who accompanied us on every open house and had a very keen eye for things that added or subtracted to the value of the house that others might not have noticed. Both Jesse and James really worked to make sure that we were safe, comfortable and happy with our purchase. Both James and Jesse were upfront and honest throughout the entire process and it seemed as though you are working friends instead of a used car salesman. Together through the Teacher Next Door Program and the team of James Ward and Jesse Mason we not only purchased our first home, but enjoyed the adventure of finding a home. This program is excellent, and we would highly recommend anyone looking for a home to use this program. There are no surprises and no gimmicks just a great program and a great team working to put you into the home of your dreams.
