Faina Shapiro - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I have worked with numerous realtors, across multiple states over the past 25 years, having to sell homes due to moving for work.

I recently worked with Faina and would rate Faina as the best realtor I have worked with. She helped me position my house for sale for another short notice move and though due to family circumstances we did not end up listing or selling, she diligently worked with us to get the house ready quickly and had interested buyers view the house with-in a week of talking, getting multiple offers above asking, without me having to put little more than elbow grease (to include her own!) , some targeted painting and minor repairs she identified. Her knowledge of the market, willingness to help, and available resources to assist in addressing any issues that should be addressed prior to listing were a huge help. Her availability to answer questions and to address our concerns was greatly appreciated, but what I appreciated more was her directness on what needed to be done and why and her not compromising on those things she identified as must haves. If and/or when I do end up listing, Faina will be my first choice.

Sold a Single Family home in Medway, MA.

I recently purchased my first home and used Faina as my agent.

As a first time home buyer, Faina’s extensive knowledge of the area and of the ins and outs of the home buying process were great assets to us. When you buy with Faina, you are not just getting an agent looking to make a quick purchase. Her care for her clients and patience in finding the home that is going to be the perfect fit for them is truly second to none. I look forward to working with Faina in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent that is willing to go the extra mile for their clients.

Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Framingham, MA.

My husband and I worked with Faina this past fall/winter to find our home in Plainville, MA.

It was our first home buying experience and she made everything so easy! We had just moved to Mass a few years back so we didn’t know everything about all the towns we were looking at but Faina would do her own research on the side and tell us anything we needed to know about the towns. She was always available any time we texted or called her with questions. She talked us through the offer process which in turn helped us to secure the offer on our new home. She was extremely helpful in closing as well. She walked us through everything and even helped us find our mortgage broker and real estate lawyer. Our first home buying experience was stress-free, easy, and fun all thanks to Faina. We couldn’t have had a better experience and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2020 in Plainville, MA.

Faina did an excellent job directing us how to prepare the house and advised us every step at a time. Her advises and assistance was was very helpful. We had an open line of communication at all times. Faina is a true professional, very knowledgeable with an experience and with excellent people’s skills. I highly recommend Faina as a RE agent.

Sold a Condo home in 2021 in Stoughton, MA.

Faina has been amazing to work with.

I met her when I signed up for an investment class at my town that I missed and she was nice enough to provide me all the documents and material which was very useful, a couple of years later She helped us sell our investment condo by negotiating the best offer, sold it overprice and helped us buy another one below asking price. She was always quick to respond to any inquiry and always provided answers to help us navigate the whole selling and buying process. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

I have worked with other real estate agents in the past prior to meeting Faina and would easily rate Faina the best I’ve worked with.

My father and brother both worked with Faina and recommended her to my husband and I. I’m so thankful we worked with her as she made the process so easy. When looking at houses she gave her honest feedback and truly had our best interest in mind. Her communication was amazing and she addressed all our concerns, questions, etc. so quickly. We found a great house with her help and I’m so thankful for her. We will absolutely work with Faina in the future and I recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing home buying experience.

We worked with Faina on buying our first home.

Not only was she extremely knowledgeable, but she was always readily available to answer any questions we had, and was very patient and understanding with us throughout the whole process (we had some first-time home-buying jitters!). Throughout the process, Faina was a great ally who both fought for our best interests, while maintaining a great relationship with the seller's team. She also has a great network behind her and can give recommendations for other services you need (lawyer, inspector, contractor, etc.) Faina has an extensive background in real estate, which includes a wealth of knowledge in income properties, which we found particularly helpful considering our future plans to rent out our condo. We highly recommend Faina and will use her as a realtor in all our future endeavors.

Bought a Condo home in 2020 in Norwood, MA.

Faina was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to sell there home.

She was wonderful at communicating the process every step of the way.Her open house was above and beyond. I received several offers and the process was very smooth.

Michele Curley

We have worked with multiple agents in the past and Faina is the crème de la crème.

In a crazy market like we have right now you need someone that puts your needs above all else, including sleeping and eating apparently. Faina is *always* available, ready to answer questions about prospective properties and is willing to drive incredible distances even when not necessary. She will go the extra mile to help you square away the many annoying hurdles of both selling and buying. We sold one property with Faina and are in the process of buying another. She has made an extremely challenging market navigable and tolerable, do yourself a favor and get in touch with her before she becomes super famous and stops taking new clients.

Sold a Condo home in Waltham and bought a Single Family home in Framingham, MA.

We just closed on selling our home in Dover, MA.

Our experience with Faina couldn't have been better! We highly recommend working with her if you are buying or selling your home. Faina taught a great workshop on "How to Sell Your Home" at Needham Community Education "NCE". As a professional stager with property management experience, she educated us on the most important things to do in getting your house ready to sell. My husband and I agreed...Faina really knows her stuff! She gave us the confidence we needed to sell our home and actually made the process fun. After 27 years in our home, we had a lot of paring down to do! I'll never forget how she emphasized "Clean, Clean, Clean"! Faina was supportive in answering all our questions, providing digital "to do" lists and detailed documents about the selling process. Originally, we had planned to list our own home, so we could save the commission in this "seller's market". When we were ready to set our price, Faina offered us a "no pressure" comparative market analysis free of charge. After a tour of our home and learning more about what Faina could bring to the table, we decided that it would be smart to list our house with her. Not only did Faina more than cover the cost of the realtor fees, she was able to facilitate getting our house on the market in record time! We saw her on a Wednesday and the house was listed on MLS by the weekend. She had all the resources to add the polish and professionalism we needed for our listing. Faina truly has an artistic eye for what works in real estate photography! She knew what furnishings needed to be added/removed to show our home in its best light. She even brought in a few of her own things to stage our home beautifully. We had taken some of our own photos, but a professional photo shoot made all the difference in our listing! The photos really highlighted the spaces and features of our home, so prospects could decide online if they should book a tour. After 2 days on MLS, Faina had 30 appointments scheduled. After the first and only showing day, we had 3 solid offers with no contingencies...and our house was under contract in one day! Faina covered all the details. She was strategic and followed through in everything she promised us. She qualified each prospect and wasted no time finding the best buyer for us. Her assertiveness (just the right amount!), excellent communication skills and timeliness sealed the deal swiftly. It was quite amazing! After working with Faina, not only did we sell our home at $131K over asking price...we have found a friend for life! It was such a pleasure working with Faina...we highly recommend her!

Cannot imagine a better realtor.

Faina's extremely knowledgeable, incredibly responsive (and proactive), and genuinely fun to be around. She will do everything in her power to get you the best deal possible. Amazingly, she helped us get a house that we absolutely love in our dream town for less than asking price with no contingencies waived. Thank you, Faina!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Medfield, MA.

My husband and I worked with Faina to purchase a home and our experience could not have been better.

Before we even started looking, Faina shared her extensive knowledge on choosing a lender and helped us get the best rate for our loan. When we started looking at houses, we could count on her to point out things we may not have seen or considered with each property. She was extremely responsive whenever we reached out with questions. We truly felt that was focused on helping us to find the best home for our family. Once we did find the house we wanted to buy, Faina used her strong and creative negotiating skills to get our offer accepted in a multiple offer situation. We felt very lucky to have our first offer accepted in such a hot market, and Faina is to thank for that! We would (and did!) recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor and will definitely work with her again if we ever decide to move.

Faina was an amazing realtor from start to finish.

She went above and beyond helping my husband and I find our perfect home. She spends time learning what you are looking for and is constant communication about properties that are up and coming. She is supportive throughout the whole process and we could not recommend her enough! Thanks to Faina we have a home we love and a place to make memories for years to come with family and friends.

Bought a home in 2020 in Medway, MA

Faina was hands down the best real estate agent ever.

During the entire process she was a fountain of knowledge and very patient with us. She really listened to our concerns and desires with homes and was diligent with appointments. Most importantly she was very response and communicative even in the evenings and on weekends. Without her I do not think I would have survived this current market and I am so grateful for her assistance. Truly became apart of the family and cannot wait to continue our relationship on future homes!

Melissa Carere

To say that Faina helped us sell and buy our homes would be an understatement.

She has gone above and beyond through out the whole process. She has a wealth of knowledge about the towns, financing options, home inspections etc. etc. She made sure that we get top dollar when we sold our home. We were able to buy our home in the neighborhood and the town that we wanted ONLY due to her great negotiating skills! She has always answered our numerous texts and phone calls. We cannot imagine anyone being more dedicated to her clients than she is. She is the best agent!

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Hopkinton, MA.

I rented an apartment from Faina in Allston for about a year and a half and she is honestly the kindest and attentive landlord I have ever had.

I ended up needing to break the lease to move for a new job and she made the entire process easy and stress-free. If you ever have a chance to rent from or work with Faina, I would highly recommend it.

Craig Anderson

As first time home buyers, Faina really eased our mind from start to finish.

What we loved most about using her as our agent was how knowledgable she was about making a good investment for our future. She truly knew what was valuable in a home and where we could add value in our time of ownership. As a first time home buyer, this was especially important because we were not looking for our forever home so ensuring we made a smart decision for our future was of utmost importance. In addition, Faina is great at building relationships and rapport with agents which proved super helpful when submitting a offer. Not only was Faina super positive and encouraging throughout the entire process but she truly made us feel like her only priority - answering numerous texts, calls and scheduling (and re-scheduling) showings. I would highly, highly recommend Faina to anyone looking for a knowledgable, passionate and energetic agent.
