Buying a Home in Greater Boston, MA

Finding and purchasing a home that will meet your needs is a significant and often stressful time. Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. We are experts in the area, and once we learn what it is that you’re looking for, finding your dream home is simple.

Before you start looking for a home you should ask yourself a few questions:

  • What kind of house would you like (need)? Are you looking for a particular style? How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want?
  • Is a home office a necessity? Do you need a bonus room or flex-room?
  • Do you entertain often? Is a home suitable for entertaining something you’re looking for?
  • Do you want a yard, pool, gated or guard gated community?
  • Have you determined your price range or consulted a lender to determine the best price range?

Searching for your dream home can be a time-consuming experience. Working with our professional team will make the process much more efficient!

Seth has a unique and in-depth knowledge in Boston and Winthrop especially, so accordingly he’s developed a tremendous network of expert folks in every area that even touches home ownership or the Boston experience in general, and they have all been so very helpful and knowledgeable as well.
And Seth is hands-down the MOST responsive real estate professional with whom we have ever dealt and we’ve purchased many, many houses though the years! This to us has been a game changer in terms of our expectations going forward as Seth has now set the bar very high.
He is a genuinely kind and helpful person who sincerely cares about his customers and his extended network. He made the entire process seamless, painless, and timely. We so appreciate Seth’s professionalism and willingness to help and answer or anticipate questions at every turn.
We are pleased to enthusiastically recommend Seth Williams for all your real estate needs!

You want your place sold for top dollar? You want to buy your dream home?  These are your guys. I worked with Seth selling my condo and buying a home at the same time. Seth couldn’t have been more on point. Always kept us in the loop with everything and made it as easy as possible. There’s   nothing easy about selling a place and buying one at the same time, but Seth was the guy that made it easy and possible for us. Give Seth a call and you won’t be disappointed!

Seth and his Team helped me buy my first home this summer. Not only my first home, the right home for my budget. The transaction was smooth. Seth's referral to his finance team gave me a rate that made the purchase that much better. Seths aggressive approach to swoop in and get the offer in before an open house weekend showed me how much he wanted to get me that home. Same effort went into negotiations after the home inspection. If you are ready to buy then Seth and his team will make it happen!

I had my condo in Winthrop listed with a different agency for over 3 months and had barely any traffic. I went ahead and decided to work with Seth and it was the best decision we made. He had foot traffic on very first weekend of his open houses and within a very short time frame, we had an offer and basically at asking price. I'm a real estate developer and Seth's team and operation are second to none in the industry! We're beyond satisfied and grateful! Thank you Seth

I used Ledge and Young to buy my first rental property in Winthrop. Seth was a great guy to work with. Very knowledgeable and down to earth. He was also able to refer me to a few different trades people that I have been using ever since. I will definitely be working with Seth again as I look to expand my multi family portfolio.

Seth is a great agent and my go to referral partner for the area. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with.
Kenneth Er
The experience from the start was great. No issues, showed us what we wanted to see regardless of how far away they were. Helpful in all aspects of any and all questions amd concerns we had. Notified me immediately when there was any change or update throughout the entire buying process.

Ledge & Young was helpful and thoughtful during the process and make us feel comfortable during the closing period where we actually got to close earlier than scheduled which got us moved in quicker. I would recommend the Ledge & Young team to friends and family for great service and pride in what they do.

I became very friends with the team years ago when we first started the dreadful search in the crazy Boston market. I still keep in contact with these guys as they've gained my friendship amd respect personally amd professionally.

Home buying is a process and a half - and with the right team members you can rest assured that this team I was given was on their toes from the start and gained my confidence early on to a successful acceptance of our offer to the final signing on the closing documents!

Well done team. We thank you again.

Eric and team,
We cannot thank you enough for walking us through the buying process. We appreciate your patience and amazing suggestions! Katie and Myles

My husband and I were not sure that a Realty Co. in Winthrop would be the right match for us to sell our house in Gloucester. But Seth Williams was very convincing when he said he would have a buyer for us within a month. We had our first (and last,) Open House just as the Covid 19 restrictions were coming down. With that, we were sure our house would not sell until Covid was under control. Things looked grim. Not to Seth. He got right into making a 3D video and setting up virtual Open Houses. By May 6th, slightly over a month, we had a P&S. Seth is very media savvy and also very comfortable in front of the camera. He knew when to push and when to back off, when to offer advice and when to leave us alone. These qualities make for a great agent. We are so glad we chose him.
Terry Hauck
Seth was great! He went out of his way to give us great local recommendations and helpful information about our new town! We had such a positive experience with him! Would highly recommend.
Erin Flynn
We wish we had started working with Eric sooner! Not only did he take into full consideration our criteria for a house, but he was also diligent and prompt during our search. His communication skills were excellent and we were never left wondering or in the dark about anything. He was personable, understanding, and patient with us while making sure we never felt pressure in any way. We would highly recommend him and his team to anyone in search of the right home for their family!
Michael Olsak
As a first time home buyer, attempting to buy alone, I needed a LOT of guidance and support. I was concerned that I would be needy and annoying with all of my questions and concerns, but Seth was always there via text or phone call to explain everything thoroughly and compassionately. We started the process 2/8 and I just closed on my condo yesterday 5/8, so in just three months we made it happen and I couldn't be more thrilled. It was much easier and streamlined than I thought and having Seth and his team by my side was just perfect. He also has a team of specialists to help with mortgage and lawyers that I also highly recommend which saved me a lot of time trying out multiple people. I have full trust in his work and business!

From our first meeting, to sell our home, and throughout the entire process, Seth and his team were always available and immediately responsive. His market analysis and marketing strategy were light years ahead of what was presented by other realtors. Once the plan was in place the execution was exactly according to the timeline that included working with a professional photographer, video production, top-quality mailings, and internet exposure ongoing. The net result – Our house it the market on a Thursday and we were in the contract above asking by Saturday evening of the same week. If you seriously want to sell your house look no further than Seth Williams!
Tricia Kelly
I was in a tough situation and needed someone highly experienced to get the job done. Seth gained my confidence (which is not easy) by being communicative, honest, and supportive from the start. Working with other realtors in the past, Seth and his team are a different breed; one that you can trust to get you through such an overwhelming process. They are not only professional but progressive in their approach to cater to your needs. You won't be disappointed!
Tee Bella
While selling my condo in an unprecedented time, I could not have asked for a better realtor than Seth. He came highly recommended from trusted family members, so I knew my property was in good hands. Seth went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations while making this complicated process easy to understand. Seth was always just a call or text away to get a status update. Seth is extremely knowledgeable about the neighboring real estate markets and can give great insight into what aspects of your home can bring additional value. From staging the property virtually, to arranging to have a new dishwasher installed, Seth truly delivered nothing but the best! The real estate industry is stressful by nature, and making the decision to sell at the height of COVID-19 was unbelievably nerve-wracking, but Seth’s confident and calm nature eased all anxieties. I would highly recommend Seth and his team to anyone buying and/or selling in the Boston area!
Jessica Butler
My fiancé and I were on the market for our first home when we met Seth at an open house. We are so glad we did! Seth did an awesome job breaking down the process of buying our first home so that we always knew what to expect next. He was always super responsive and able to talk us through the most stressful parts of the process. He always had great advice and answered my (many, many) questions thoroughly and patiently. He also never made us feel like an inconvenience and even sent us donuts on our first morning we were at our new home! We can’t thank him enough and will not hesitate to recommend him to all our friends. Thanks Seth!!
Camila Francolin
Seth and his team were fantastic during our home sale in Winthrop. We were in the process of relocating out of state during the majority of our sale and Seth and his team made it all so smooth for us. He took care of the small details most realtors miss and got us top dollar for our home. He was professional, responsive, provided us all of the information to help us make the right choices, and was never more than a text away. If you need to buy or sell a house, ask for Seth and don’t settle for someone else!
Joe Crawford
Seth was wonderful! Great beginning presentation on zoom, immediate responses to any questions, warm personality while very professional and efficient. Enjoyed the entire process from beginning to end. Highly recommend Seth to anyone who want to sell or purchase a new home.

We are Kevin and Rhonda Coughlin. We recently purchased our very first home in Taunton with the help of Eric Bourgea. Eric worked from day one getting appointments and ensuring proper Covid precautions were in place. We viewed several.... and I mean several houses but none felt like home until we reached Taunton. Thank you is not enough for the effort Eric put in and the almost daily checkins with us. We highly recommend Eric and the Team is a part of for your Real Estate needs.
Kevin Coughlin
Eric was instrumental in our home search and in facilitating the sale. He never pressured us about our budget. He stayed calm, professional, and always helpful. He was NEVER pushy. He truly wanted the best for us and didn't rush the process. He ensures his clients find the right home. Eric was constantly available and always made sure we were comfortable with the process. We were able to relax knowing we were in such competent hands. We cannot thank Eric enough for making our dream a reality!
Orlando Associates
There are not enough positive words to describe Seth and his team. Seth worked tirelessly for us to both sell our condo and find us our dream home! He is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, honest, transparent, and overall very easy to work with. We never once felt pressured to buy, and Seth made this whole process an amazing experience! Thanks Seth!
Michael Disabatino
Seth Williams and the Ledge and Young Real Estate Team provided us with exemplary service in the search for our first home. Seth was always responsive via phone, text or email and demonstrated his professionalism and skill throughout our entire buying process. We never felt pressured or rushed to reach any decision. Working with Seth was a pleasure and I would recommend Seth without hesitation. When the time comes to work with a real estate agent in the future, Seth will be our first call.

From the beginning of our relationship with Seth until our close, I cannot say enough about how much he did for my wife and me. We had just moved back to the Boston area by way of Savannah, Georgia, and had our ideal setup already in mind: a single family in Winthrop. However, with all ideals, sometimes it just ain’t that easy. We put an offer on one of Seth’s listings. Given that our agent was operating out of state, we went in on this house with very little knowledge of the local housing market. Our offer was not accepted, but there was a silver lining: Seth reached out to us personally to explain the ins and outs of the current real estate market.

This is why we recommend Seth so highly. He didn’t have to reach out to us, nor did he have any obligation to give us some insight that might help our dream of living in Winthrop come true. But he did. After that, we signed a contract with him, and he found us exactly what we wanted. Although the single family market was limited and highly sought after, he made sure we had the first available viewing (this house had over 300 saves within its first 12 hours on Zillow), coached us through the most aggressive we could be with our budget, and put together an offer. It was accepted, and I am writing this review three days after closing.

Seth goes to bat for his clients. He listens to your wants and needs, and then synthesizes it into a strategy to ensure that you get what you are looking for. From acceptance to closing, he continually checked in with us, responded to every request we had, and was transparent and open with every move he made. I cannot say enough about this guy, and hope that this review helps get you where Seth got us.
Tommy Simmons
Seth made us feel comfortable and confident from day one. He was with us through the decision making and always shared helpful tidbits to keep us on track and excited about the home buying experience. I expect to stay in touch with Seth as he genuinely cares about our experience and I know he will continue to be a helpful thought partner with all things “homeowner.” 10/10 recommend and will definitely use again!

We want to start off by saying THANK YOU!!! My wife and I decided in the middle of the summer that we were interested in selling our home and buying a new home with more land and better access to the highway. We reached out to Seth (he helped us buy the house we were selling) and he set up a zoom call with the 2 of us and Eric. They walked us through their process and how they thought our timeline would pan out. They came out to see the house and person and did their research to find the right list price and walked us through their thoughts. At that time my wife and I decided that they were the experts and had the knowledge and experience to make the best decision. They set up the open house and everything went perfect with all the social media postings and email blasts that went out to their client list causing a lot of visitors to come by and check out our home. Seth and Eric also went and viewed many houses with us and were always very honest with us while walking the houses and while discussing our thoughts afterwards. There were a couple times that Seth looked right at us and said “this isn’t the house for you guys. This reminds me more of the city neighborhood you live in now then the suburb neighborhood you guys have described.” They let us know if they thought something was overpriced right from the get go based on them researching the area before seeing the house. When it came down to the house we purchased they again the time to do further research on comps in the area to make sure we did not over offer and did a great job of negotiating with the seller’s realtor. They were able to get us the house for $50k under list price and with the home inspection as well. Seth and Eric kept communicating with us frequently throughout the entire process and answered texts, calls, and email promptly. To sum it all up when it comes to our experience we could not have asked for a better duo to help us along the way. The honesty, friendliness, professionalism, and experience of these guys is unbeatable. If you are looking to buy or sell you must reach out to Seth or Eric from Ledge & Young Real Estate and they will make sure you are taken care of. 12 out of 10 would definitely recommend.
Christopher DiLeo
My boyfriend and I have used Seth at Ledge & Young for now 3 purchases! We could not be happier with the service and professionalism Seth demonstrated with each purchase. He fought to help us both buy and sell multiple properties at competitive prices in highly sought after Peabody. We are now in our dream home that can accommodate us as well as our growing great dane puppy! We highly recommend Seth; you will not be disappointed!
Angela Foley
As a real estate attorney, I work with many real estate agents. To help someone sell a home, it is very much a team effort (attorney and agent) to get across the goal line. I recently worked with Seth Williams of Ledge & Young Real Estate to assist a seller to sell a condo in Back Bay (Boston). The timeline was very aggressive from accepted offer to closing (2 weeks) and required seamless coordination with Seth and tremendous responsiveness - all of which Seth and his team delivered on in a flawless fashion. Thank you Seth for your and your team's very diligent efforts. Looking forward to assisting the next clients!
