Vera was amazing. As first time home buyers, we were very nervous and overwhelmed to say the least. In addition, our lender was less than satisfactory during the process. However, Vera was there every step of the way. Whether she was making phone calls, emailing documents or providing some advice, Vera held our hand every step of the way. Vera was always pleasant and genuine. She is a tribute to her profession! Michael Ball & Kathleen Ball (Buyer Client)
I loved working with Vera! Wendi Clarke (Seller Client)

Vera was the perfect Agent to work with my mother. Her years of experience, knowledge, patience and kindness made an extremely difficult situation much less traumatic for my mother to move on. I know my mother and I will recommend Vera to anyone in her market area. There is a reason why Vera rises to the top above other Agents and Brokers every year! Barbara Zammuto (Seller Client)
We had previous experience on another family home with Ms. Rivers and have always found her to be friendly, professional, and we have always been very happy with the excellent service. Frank and Anne Vacca (Seller Client)
Dear Mr. Davidson, Meeting & working (long distance, since I reside in San Francisco) with Vera Rivers was the BEST aspect of having to sell my property! I grew up in that house so you might imagine how traumatic the entire experience was for me. Vera put me at ease almost immediately with her empathy & patient manner of explaining the business & "plan of action" for my particular needs. She exuded confidence & knowledge that put me at ease & made me feel like, "You go girl-I'm glad you're on MY side!" She kept in constant touch so I always knew what was/wasn't happening. When I was feeling down about how things were/weren't going her great sense of humor perked me up. I actually did refer her to a couple of friends back there but they have their own business connections. I suggested they keep Vera in mind---just in case. I cannot praise Vera enough. I hope your company recognizes what a GEM you have in your midst! I am & will always be thankful to her---for everything she did for me! Sincerely, Elfreda E. Taylor (Seller Client)
Vera is superb—the consummate real estate professional. She came very highly recommended by our attorney, and she didn't disappoint! She knows her market, we followed her advice, and we achieved our goal: A quick sale at a fair price. Vera is outstanding on every level. She's also wonderful with senior clients. The rating I gave on the office (question 3) is linked mostly to the Web site, which was difficult to navigate for me. That may be because I have a Mac computer, but so do lots of people. You should look into that. I actually used a competitor's Web site to track my listing!! Not something you likely want to hear, but it's true. Your Web site was slow or unresponsive whenever I was on it. Your competitors' sites worked fine. I also wanted to say that everyone I interacted with at Bond Realty was very nice to deal with. Anyone covering for Vera was extremely professional and helpful. Susan Perlman (Seller Client)
Vera was wonderful, hard-working and helpful.  Most importantly, she got the house sold in a relatively short amount of time!! She was there from the start to finish. Jacob Berkowitz (Seller Client)
I have been in the real estate business since 1974 and done development/investment not only in Massachusetts but in Florida, Tennessee, and British Columbia. I rank Vera Rivers among my top three agents. I would never think of using anyone else in the geographic area she covers. She is unbelievably intelligent, competent, knowledgeable, courteous, personable, creative, open, and most important, ethical and honest. Dale Koppel (Seller Client)
We were very pleased with Vera's professionalism and courteous handling of this matter in a very soft market. She sold the property with the very first open house, and helped us from beginning to end. We would recommend her to our friends who might be interested in selling property. Bill and Janice Burns (Seller Client)

Vera Rivers took a lot of the stress out of the whole thing, that women went above & beyond what she had to do! she went as far as helping my wife with a matter that was out of state. Thank you for helping me with the sale of my parents home. Dave Whelan (Seller Client)
