5 Star Testimonials from Seniors:


“Highly recommend the Thompson team! They went above and beyond during the entire process. Including staging, holding many open houses, connecting us with contractors- even researching & coordinating an estate sale & moving company. They were in constant contact & became like family.” 

We recently sold our home in Westford MA; The Thompson crew was very professional and made the selling of our house a very “Calm” experience, especially for my wife. We have sold 7 homes in the course of my career and this was the easiest. I would, without hesitation, refer anyone who needs a realtor to consider Peter.” 

Peter and his team really do great work. They helped us in every facet of selling our home. The work that went into staging, photos, videos and their experience with selling a home in our area was tremendous. We really enjoyed working with this team, and they made the process of selling a home much better than one could imagine. I would highly recommend Peter and his team if you are looking to buy or sell a home.”

She was very available and full of suggestions which helped sell the home I was out of state so Deb had to do many of the tasks that the owner would ordinarily do.”

I am pleased to be your SRES®.
