"I am happy to recommend the Shahani Real Estate team from Hammond Residential located in Chestnut Hill. As an attorney, I know many great real estate professionals. When my wife and I decided to downsize, my first and only call was to Jeet. I knew that Jeet was extremely knowledgeable about the Newton market. Jeet and Shal were able to sell our Newton home. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Jeet and Shal's knowledge and professionalism throughout the entire process. The best compliment I can make about the Shahani Real Estate team is that I used them personally.”

“I am writing today to express my great pleasure with Jeet Shahani, my real estate agent from Hammond Residential in Brookline. Jeet represented me and my husband in the purchase of a condo in Newton. Jeet guided us through the entire process, from searching for a suitable condo that met all our needs, to making the offer and closing the deal. With Jeet by our side, buying a new home was a smooth and exciting process and far less stressful than I had anticipated.”
-- Leslie B., July 2017
“Jeet is awesome! Very knowledgeable and helpful. My wife and I have used him several times and using him again to purchase two more homes! If you are looking for an honest helpful person how get things done, look no further!”
-- Mike C., July 2017
“You were an amazing broker and you really got us the best deal and best house. You were very patient and tried your best to make this happen!”
-- Mohamed and Rasha S., July 2017
“Honesty, preparation, knowledge and great ‘charisma’ is what Team Shahani have offered me since I met them.
“They not only helped me to sell my house for the best price in the market, they also went the extra mile to find the best house for me. I had a win-win situation thanks to them.
“When you find a good doctor you keep him or her for your life time; I feel the same way with my Realtors, now Team Shahani are my Realtors for life! And I am always grateful to them.”

"Shal is an intelligent, warm and capable woman who easily inspires trust and confidence. Working with her you will know that she is focused on value for everyone and a fair and efficient transaction. We first met her when we made an offer on a house she was listing, and although we failed to buy that house due to a host of other reasons we knew that we had a met a trustworthy and capable agent with a compassionate heart and creative mind.
“After looking at different cities with and without agents, we knew we trusted no one above Shal and asked for her to get involved when we finally found the house we were looking for in Newton. Shal represented us, always prioritizing our interests above her own, and we were very happy with the outcome. She managed the entire transaction in a graceful and trustworthy manner while I was out of the country on an extended business trip, and her and Jeet (her wonderful and intelligent husband) were at our door with their daughters to celebrate once we moved in. They are honest and hardworking business people to partner with, and you will also find that you will instantly want to make them good friends!”
-- Costy and Julien F., April 2017
“Shal and her team define what Realtors should be. They know their markets and are well-connected in many communities -- they know what sells, and at what prices. Take their advice!
“Both Shal and Jeet were immediately responsive to requests and concerns. They were never pushy with us, but we felt like we had a team on our side for all aspects of the negotiations. The team was impeccably professional, even in the face of some bizarre situations that we faced.
“I (almost) wish I could buy or sell again, because Shal made it the most pleasant real estate experience possible.”
-- Noah and Rachel D., August 2016
“We hired Shal on a friend’s recommendation to sell our upscale condo in Newton. Ten days after it had been put on the market we sold it for full price. We only can recommend Shal and her team: She came very well-prepared with statistics, knowledge of neighborhood and market analysis. She worked in a team with her colleagues -- her stager and her photographer -- and was absolutely willing to listen to their advice as well as recognizing our situation (young dog, active living while staging, etc.).
“The whole process of deciding on a price, preparing for sale, showing and then selling and closing was extremely well-organized and went through without a hitch by an always friendly, grounded Shal. With her international background, sharp mind and common sense, Shal was the best Realtor we ever had in our numerous across-Atlantic and coast-to-coast moves in our life. If we ever move back into the Boston area she will be our first choice of Realtor.”

"We worked with Jeet to purchase a home in Newton. From the outset he was great. He listened to the things we said we wanted and also provided ideas of his own. He was patient and honest, always giving us his candid opinion. He was diligent in finding us as many properties as possible to view, and when we narrowed our decision, provided us with a wealth of information on comparable properties and worked with us to analyze them. He was also a great help in the negotiation process - offering sound advice on everything from communication with the sellers and issues to look out for during the inspection and closing process. We will work with Jeet again if and when we are in the market for a home."
-- Doug W., February 2014
"My husband and I were looking to purchase a home with very specific features in mind. We felt that Jeet understood that right off the bat and narrowed it down to properties that met our criteria. He was responsive, efficient, and his feedback was very valuable. He was never in a rush and showed us multiple properties. We were fortunately able to find something very quickly and what impressed us truly was that even once we had found the home we felt was the right one for us, Jeet showed us a few more just to make sure that we really felt 100% about the place we had decided on.
“He was also a tremendous help during the negotiation process and his expertise and experience helped us tremendously on that front as well. In summary, Jeet is a fantastic Realtor who has the experience and the understanding of what the client is seeking. I would recommend him highly and would definitely seek his services again if needed.”

"Now that we have lived in the new house you helped us buy for almost 3 weeks, we thought we would send you an email to thank you for helping us buy this wonderful place to call home!
"Working with you made our house hunt such a learning and easy experience for us. We always felt that you were very honest in your feedback for all the houses we saw with you and that you always put our interests first. When we made the decision to move from the suburbs to the east side, we never imagined that we would be able to get into such a great location within our budget and we never in our dreams imagined to buy a house in Weston. So we have to thank you for knowing our needs and desires for our next house so well, and bringing to our attention this house which we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. We love everything about the new place so far -- with such a great commute, community, a beautiful yard and home to come back to everyday -- it makes us really grateful to you as you guided us so well through the process and your knowledge about the towns that we were looking into helped us make a very calculated and a wise decision.
"We also want to commend you on your negotiation skills, which we think really helped this deal comes through. While going through the negotiations we didn’t think that we would be getting this house, but we trusted you completely and here we are now, unpacking and settling in the house!
"Thanks for all your help and expertise! We look forward to working with you in future for all our real estate needs."

"I would recommend Shal and Jeet to anyone who is buying a home. They took the time to get to know what it was that I wanted and needed in a condo. Being that it was my first time buying, I had no idea what I was doing. They steered me clear of several places that I thought were good, but were not right at all and found me a home that is the perfect fit. They are patient, funny, and determined to help their clients. Not only that, but they gave me the names of an inspector, mortgage broker, and lawyer, all of who offered professional, dependable service, just like Shal and Jeet. I have been in my condo for 3 years and am grateful to them for helping me find the perfect place."
