It’s time to talk about the elephant in the room. While we’re at it, we should talk about all the other crap that’s in the room too. It’s time to simplify and declutter. Americans are the epitome of gratuitous consumption and we need to slow our roll.
The first rule of real estate is don’t get cocky. Never forget you need to take the appropriate steps to get prepared for your sale this spring. Selling a home isn’t rocket science, but it is an art form.

Will helped me both sell my condo and buy a house within two and a half short months last fall. He gave me sensible advice about preparing my condo for sale, helped me with the staging, and took great pictures. He was always happy to answer questions, whether or not they were strictly part of his job, and was a good source of referrals concerning moving, repairs, or just generally all things real estate. That made things so much easier for me considering the tight scheduling involved. Will was attentive and responsive throughout the whole purchase and sale process. He really knows the neighborhood and encouraged me to look in areas I hadn't known as well, which widened my options. He was pleasant to deal with, professional throughout, and by remaining calm helped me do so too whenever things became fraught. We achieved great results too, as my condo sold for 15% above asking price and I bought below asking. I will turn to Will for any future real estate needs and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

5.0 star rating 10/26/2017 The Boston Home Team, and William Brokhof as a seller's agent was exceptional. Will's knowledge of the local area is outstanding. We used him as our buyer's agent and were quite happy with his professionalism and interpersonal skills and so were more than happy to choose him to represent us as a seller's agent. He provided sage advice to the timing and pricing of our property that was spot on for the market demands. He then put in a lot of time taking us step by step through the selling process and gave us his opinion on what would work best for our property. Once the property was ready to sell, his photography and social media presence generated maximum foot traffic to our open houses. Once we had an offer, well above asking, Kyle was exceptionally professional and helpful, even going the extra mile by meeting at our apartment during a busy week! I would not hesitate to recommend Will to anyone thinking about buying or selling in Boston!

We worked with Will and he was just incredibly helpful throughout the entire process (which was about a year for us). Will was diligent about sending us listings as they popped on the market and also willing to go the extra mile by looking into comps and speaking with sellers agents whenever there was a property we were interested in. He was super patient with us as we muddled through and always gave us sound advice and feedback on particular properties. When we finally found our fixer-upper Will really shined. He confidently helped us through the offer process and helped us to make an offer that was sound yet not overly zealous. We trusted his sense and couldn't be happier! Will was also always a pleasure to see on our many house tours. Highly recommend!

We had a great experience with Will. I'll be calling him with my real estate questions for as long as I have them. He's knowledgeable, reliable and a pleasure to work with. We were particularly impressed with his knowledge and eye for structural issues with the properties we looked at. It was very reassuring having someone who knows this stuff take a look and he helped us avoid a few nasty situations. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Will was enormously helpful in the search for our house. As first time buyers in a ridiculously competitive marketplace, it's easy to let emotions overwhelm and lead buyers to make decisions they'd regret for multiple reasons. My fiance and I came close to an impulse buy a few times, but Will was able to contextualize what a decision of this magnitude meant and factors we overlooked in the process that we should be considering. He could have easily said 'go for it' and been on his way, but he gave a thorough analysis as to why a particular house would or would not make sense. I would not hesitate to recommend Will to home buyers in the future. He's thorough, blunt (which I appreciate) and genuinely looks out for your best interests.
