Alan helped us purchase our first home. As first-time homeowners, we didn't have any experience with the home buying process. He was a great expert who made the entire process seamless. Although we had a couple of small hiccups during the closing, Alan was always ahead of this to make sure they are resolved fast in order not to delay the closing. We end up closing earlier than expected and he even found us a tenant for the second unit within a week of closing. He knows the Boston real estate market really well and we will definitely work with him in the future as well.— Emin
As a first time homebuyer, Alan was extremely helpful and available to answer any of our questions as they came up. Alan is knowledgeable about the Boston market and put emphasis on properties that were good values. He is confident and able to win a tight bid which made me at ease during the offering process. I couldn’t recommend a better agent!— Nancy M
Alan was extremely helpful every step of the way. He did a great job of going to bat for us to get everything we wanted. Would 100% recommend going through Alan if you are looking for property.— Ryan A
As a first time homebuyer, I cannot begin to describe how grateful I am to have had Alan with me every step of the way. He truly cares about his clients and making sure they are happy. He listened to what my needs were and selected great properties that met all the criteria I was looking for. He knows the market and was able to offer strategic advice to ensure my offer was accepted. He’s gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the process went smoothly from offer to close. If you are in the market to buy/sell, you are missing out if you’re not using Alan!— Jess S
Alan was more than helpful in finding my new condo in Dorchester and helped find me tenants for my prior apartment! He was extremely honest, upfront, and was able to find me a great condo that fit my needs and was within the price range. He was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. Alan was wonderful to work with and it honestly felt like I had a friend on the "inside" working for me. He really takes the time to understand your needs (family, neighborhood, investment, etc.) and comes prepared with multiple options allowing you to see the full spectrum of potential. Looking forward to working with Alan...— Kristen C
Alan was incredibly helpful throughout the process, from figuring out what my necessities are versus the nice to haves, to identifying neighborhoods to look in, all the way through close. As a first-time homebuyer, this process was completely new to me, but he helped me get ahead with lists of questions to ask for showing, a checklist of key dates to consider, etc. He really helped take a look of mystery out of the homebuying process.— Ryan T
Star residential, and particularly Brett Star, is fantastic! My boyfriend and I contacted Brett in 2011 looking for what seemed impossible at the time a nice studio or one bed in a convenient location in or around Boston. After looking at lots of other apartments off craigslist and through other Realtors® who either showed up late or tried to give us a hard sell on a gross one-bedroom in the suburbs for hundreds of dollars over budget, we felt like we would just have to settle for something slightly less terrible in an OK location and deal with it. First apartment Brett showed us was a beautiful (pet friendly!) studio on beacon st for an incredible ...— Mary R.
Erik is a great! He makes the process of finding an apartment very easy. He helps walk you through each step of the process and takes time to call and ask questions. He was very helpful in my search for an apartment and did an excellent job with I just signed off on a rental with Erik in Back Bay Boston and had a brilliant experience throughout the whole process. He was very considerate and flexible in finding a time to show the apartment. When we were at the apartment he showed me all the details, had me do a nice check all around both in the apartment and the building. After that, he was very responsive and clear on the next steps in the process. ...— Bryan O.
Brett helped me in renting an amazing studio in Back Bay. I initially found the apartment listing on Craigslist and shortly thereafter was able to set up an appointment to see the studio. Brett was very flexible with scheduling and patient with my questions. He also was very observant and proactive, noticing a need for repairs and contacting the landlords about it, without me needing to do anything. The application process was pretty straightforward and went smoothly. Once I was approved, Brett handled many of the logistics around move-in with the landlords. He was communicative about details I needed to know and again, was great about answering my ...— Mehreen I.
Brett is great. We worked with him to rent our beautiful new apartment in the south end. He has a different vibe than the other Realtors® we met with to see other places. He's super casual or chills millennial shows up on a bike but it's refreshing! And he's legitimate. Responsive and understanding to your needs. He will go back to the owner with any of your questions. He showed us 3 great apartments that we really liked. I'm not sure what other types of listings he has, but we're young professionals (30 yo) looking for 1 bedroom in the South end. And he's flexible (like when I was super late to meet him to give him the check) and he gave us an awes...— Lindsay W.

Brett assisted me in renting an apartment in the South End I was in the process of moving up to Boston from New York and he was so helpful! I had a few packages that were arriving before I actually moved in and he even dropped by and moved those large packages into my new place. Brett was extremely responsive in answering my questions and ensuring that I had all the important information I would need.— Sherill G.
From start to finish, Brett was professional, prompt, responsive, and honest. Compared to 5 other Realtors® who gave us the run-around, We found an awesome 1 bedroom in the south end for a very reasonable price. Brett is the only Realtor® to use if you want to live in the south end and will happily use him again when we are ready to buy a home.— KW R.
Brett was transparent and responsive throughout our entire apartment hunt. He had helpful answers to all our questions and even offered his own tips to make sure we would be as happy as possible in our new place. He truly went above and beyond to help us make the right decision and give us all the information we needed to do so.— Victor D.
Huge fan of Brett Star and his team. I rent my apartments through them because they are honest, thorough, and responsive. They always match me up with great people. As an owner of a small number of units, in a building where I live, it is key to have a good Realtor®. You will not be disappointed in Brett.— Buyer | Seller
