About Gerard

About
My goal is to make the buying or selling process as successful and stressfree as possible. To that end, I work diligently to help people make the best possible real estate decision. I am very familiar with the local market having lived in the area for over 25 years. Born in Co. Kerry, Ireland. Graduated University College Cork and worked as a Teacher in Dublin and Cork before coming to the US. Have lived in the Boston area for 27 years and with Coldwell Banker in Lexington for the past 18 years. I would invite you to contact me whether looking for excellent guidance during the home finding process or if you desire exceptional service in the quest to sell your current home. Call me directly at 781-424-8286 or visit my website at gerardoconnell.cbintouch.com Having previously been a schoolteacher, I like to think that I bring some of those skills to Real Estate. I pride myself on guiding and educating my clients in both the buying and selling processes every step of the way.

Dear Gerard, We thought we'd take a moment to let you know how grateful we are for the part you played in bringing us to our new home. Your easy manner, your capacity to listen with discernment and sensitivity to our needs and desires, and your prompt and complete follow-up to any of our concerns made the purchase of our property a joy. Your constant responsiveness, balanced appraisal of conflicting elements, and eye for details you knew we cared about contributed to a growing trust and confidence in your judgments and service. You allowed us time to come to understand the market through our own Investigations, YOU OFFERED us your expertise without IMPOSING It on us. Instead of SELLING US, you EDUCATED Us--and now we have the pleasure of understanding the market and of having made an informed choice of a house that really suits us. Thanks for your consummate professionalism, your easy manner, and your continued support.

Dear Gerard: Little did I know when I was interviewing realtors and praying for guidance that there you would be. Over and over throughout the process I kept reminding myself to have a "little fatth*, even when all seemed lost and most hopeless, As you know, my husband is in sales (software), so I fully comprehend the ruthlessness, and coldness that sometimes comes with the job, but there is room for humanity as well. I believe it is the ingredient to success or Failure in most cases. You showed tremendous humanity and compassion for what you were doing for our family, and I am grateful, as is Susan. I cannot believe the hours you put in and all the shenanigans that you put up with from our buyers, and you never once lost your temper with all of our questions and having to re-explain things over and over to me and to the buyers. Thank you seem Inadequate, but I wanted you to know how grateful to you, we and so... Thank you!

Gerard Thanks for all your help with our real estate transaction. I was extremely pleased with your professionalism and service and would be happy to serve as a reference (although I am sure you already have plenty of those) I really love the house and will have to have you over once we get settled, so you can see it decorated "California style". Also, thank you for the gift basket Lee and I will be sure to enjoy the champagne!! Regards, Jennifer

I turned to Gerard O'Connell in a bit of a crisis. I had to replace a realtor 8 days in to my home being listed on MLS. This is a critical period as the first two weeks on MLS can make or break you and can either mean a successful and lucrative R.E transaction or a disappointing middle road transaction or even worse the beginning of a prolonged and arduous and very costly and regrettable experience. He had us under agreement in just 5 days time, Gerard is the consummate professional. He is an elite agent, and now I know exactly why. He was omnipresent but not overbearing. He attends to your objective as though you are his only client. He is cool, calm and collected. Ever the gentleman that he makes important suggestions and does so in a subtle manner so pay close attention to his every word and follow his advice. Do yourself a huge favor and call him when you are ready to sell your home. He is in a word, outstanding!"

Constance M. in Bedford

Assisted by our realtor, Gerard O'Connell, we bought a condo and sold our house within two months during Covid-19. Gerard's mastery of the real-estate business was evident every step of the way as he walked us through the process of making an offer and getting it accepted. Immediately afterwards, he advised us on a strategy to prepare our house for sale that resulted in our getting five offers the weekend of the first open house. We ended up paying less than asking price for our purchase and receiving more than asking price for our sale - all due to Gerard's advice and guidance. Not only did Gerard help us accomplish what we wanted to do, he did so with the acumen and foresight of a professional who acts proactively to ward off any potential obstacles. On top of all that, he was always available with speedy, reassuring answers to our many questions during this nerve-wracking process. He's simply the best there is in the business!

"I would like to express my appreciation for Gerard in his representation in the sale of my property 1 Frost Rd Lexington. Throughout the process, I feel that he was definitely looking out for my best interests. When! Decided to go ahead with the sale of my house, I feel that he was able to quickly put together a game plan for success which included the facilitation of the cleanup and staging of the home. He gave me plenty of good hands-on help as well as advice. He did a great job quickly putting together a great presentation to market the house to maximize visibility. He is very knowledgeable and knows the real estate market... and knows how to keep communications friendly and open. His ability to accomplish this during the pandemic deserves praise. I highly recommend Gerard to any buyer or seller of property. I am very choosy about whom I deal with in real estate and Gerard is definitely top-notch.

Dan W. bought a home in Lexington

Dear Gerard, Now that the dust has settled after the closing and we're fully engaged with renovations, we thought we'd take a moment to let you know how grateful we are for the part you played in bringing us to our new home. Your easy manner, your capacity to listen with discernment and sensitivity to our needs and desires, and your prompt and complete follow-up to any of our concerns made the purchase of our property a joy. Where other brokers we worked with had their own agendas. were pushy, or answered every concern with a glib patter of why we should not be concerned, you followed our lead with courteous efficiency. Your constant responsiveness, balanced appraisal of conflicting elements. and eye for details you knew we cared about contributed to a growing trust and confidence in your judgment and service. Thanks for your consummate professionalism, your easy manner, and your continued support.-Dan
