Stephen is amazing! He is super responsive, and patient, and goes above and beyond. Though South Boston is his area of expertise, he is knowledgeable about the whole city, and even some of the surrounding suburbs. Stephen gives measured, sound advice and considers what you’re looking for when you’re weighing a property. From answering questions at 6:30 in the morning, working with the seller’s agent at 11:30 at night on an offer, spending all weekend at open houses as well as showings during the week, and being flexible at last minute rescheduling the walkthrough and closing time - he puts in exceptional time and effort on your behalf. If you’re looking to buy in Boston, you can’t go wrong working with Stephen!

My wife and I have known Stephen for 10 years. He helped us purchase and sell twice in the Boston market (Including one sale while we were on the other side of the country). His knowledge of the city on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis is second to none. He is not like many other brokers- he has walked us away from specific properties and acted in our best interest instead of trying to make a sale. We have also referred many of our friends who have had an excellent experience as well. Last, beyond being an absolute professional. Stephen is an awesome person and always looks to help.


We had an awesome experience buying our home with Stephen McCarthy. As it was a 29-day close, things moved fast and Stephen kept every aspect of the process moving. Additionally, as it is our first home, we had many questions along the way and a couple of unexpected surprises/ delays. Stephen took his time to walk us through things, get on calls, and make sure we understood everything. His knowledge of the market, ability to run the process, and level of professionalism are all impressive. We recommend Stephen for any of your real estate needs!


My wife and were searching for our first home. Stephen was patient, and knowledgeable, and worked extremely hard for us. He knew the ins and outs of the locations and markets we were looking. His commitment, work ethic, and overall knowledge of the markets were incredible and we couldn't be happier in working with him. We will continue to stay with Stephen for any and all future purchases and sales that we go through. Stephen made the process of negotiating and purchasing a home easy and helped minimize the stress from buying a home.
