Our Happy Clients

  • We just sent a recommendation to Dave. I hope that it proves helpful. Geoff Freeman

  • The selling of our home went incredibly smoothly. It was great that Robin and Elaine were available at all times for questions and to come by to assist with forms. I always felt I could turn to them with any questions. Sven also did a great job marketing the home and helping in every way. Ann Vaeth

  • Marie was outstanding! She was so knowledgable, personable, insightful and skillful negotiator. I could not be happier with the whole team and my home buying experience! Michele Bartalini

  • The whole process was great. Marie and team helped us from defining what we wanted all the way through finding the right house for our family. The Andersen team was always proactive (Marie hand-delivered our offer on the house we ended up buying!) and we never felt pressured in the process. In a tight buyer's market you need to be aggressive, but also careful not to get too caught up in the momentum. I thought the team did a great job of striking that balance and helping us find the right approach. Jason Fenner

  • Everything was very smooth. Kily Oliveira

  • Sarah Amico is an excellent buyers agent. We recently purchased a home in Arlington and she made the process very easy. Unlike many other realtors, you could tell she really had our interests at heart and provided very open and honest feedback about the state of the homes we looked at. Throughout the closing process, she frequently called to check in about how things were going and offer general assistance. She is a very knowledgeable and friendly individual and highly recommended. She is especially knowledgeable about everything related to Arlington and was able to offer numerous insights into the general area and housing market. We used her based upon a friend recommendation and would now recommend her to all our other friends! Tricia See

  • When I was thinking about selling my house (which had been in the family for 65 years), I contacted Sven to get a market analysis. I had already moved out of town and Sven was very accommodating to my schedule, including meeting with me on New Year's Day to walk through my house. That first meeting lasted about three hours. He walked through the house, pointed out a few areas I should consider addressing before listing the house and pulled comps (current listings and recent sales). Sven even offered me resources to address any issues I wanted to fix before listing the house (painter, plumber, cleaning company, stager). It was clear from that first meeting that Sven knew Winchester and in particular my neighborhood. We discussed the importance of pricing the house and the timing of listing it. I finally decided to list the house about six weeks later. Sven and his team worked around the clock getting everything set to "launch" the house. They promoted the house through several media channels and it was well received. Sven offered advice and suggestions over the next few weeks as his team continued to work hard to sell the house. Sven was truly my advocate during negotiations. Five weeks later I accepted an offer for the exact price Sven told me it should sell for. Even after the P&S was signed, Sven was where there to assist/advise me. Sven's team, especially Elaine, was fantastic. Having already moved, Elaine took care of all the little details for me before closing having the required smoke and CO2 detectors installed, fire inspection, final water reading, etc. She saved me hours and hours of time. I would recommend Sven and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell in Winchester. He knows the town, is attentive to your needs and is honest and professional. He was always accessible, even when he was on vacation. He makes you feel like you are his most important client. Christine Murphy

  • Since you sold my Uncles home last summer in Winchester, I have worked with other realtor's in selling a million dollar home south of Boston, and in purchased additional shore front land in Maine. Through these further transactions, one thing has been made crystal clear to me, and that is that you are totally in a league of your own. Your professionalism and commitment to making the transaction seamless is without a doubt the pinnacle that all realtors should strive for. As with my Uncles home in Winchester, and knowing that I did not live in-state, you and your team handled every facet of the transaction from landscaping, house cleaning, donation of furniture and household items, mold mitigation, and a plethora of other tasks that I simply would have been unable to do myself. In contrast to my recent experiences, you are absolutely the best, period. Please keep up the outstanding work Sven! Rob Blake

  • Thanks for all of your help with the sale of our house. I know that our home, with its few bedrooms and many stairs, is a difficult one to sell. Ned and I contacted you because you had a proven high-volume sales record, including during what was for most people an economic downturn and real estate slump. We needed to sell our house quickly, and figured you were the agent that could make that happen. Happily, you did not disappoint and our house was sold in half the time it sat on the market when we bought it at the peak in 2005. It was very clear to Ned and I that you work very hard for your clients and I really appreciated being able to reach you easily at any time. I had never thought much of the videos that people make of homes for sale, but we absolutely loved one you made for us. Instead of thinking it was goofy, when I watched ours I thought "who wouldn't want to buy this lovely little Colonial!?!?" I was also very impressed by your team - you all work like a well-oiled machine; sending out frequent updates, making sure we never ran out of marketing materials, handling all kinds of details that I didn't even know about. Elaine seems like an incredible resource; she is always right there with everything you need, before you know you need it. Kristen Goodell

  • When a friend or relative needs real estate assistance, we point them in the direction of the Anderson Team. More than any other broker, we have received personalized attention and counseling that has extended well beyond the purchase date. This has been the case with other members of my family as well. So far, Sven Andersen and his team have sold 3 homes to members of my family, and another is currently working with him today. Sven raises the bar when it comes to service. He's professional, highly knowledgeable, patient and extremely helpful, especially when guiding you through complicated processes. We know that we can always count on Sven and the Andersen Team. Kendra Ahern

  • Sven did an absolutely fabulous job both helping me sell one house, and buy another. Moving is an incredibly difficult experience. Sven did everything he could to make the process a little bit easier, and I'm not sure how I would have coped without him! He absolutely went way above and beyond what I would expect from any realtor, helping and advising on resources for innumerable details of the move-from boxes, to painters, to handyman help to negotiating with the builder. He did a great job advising me on how to prepare my house for sale, and in positioning the house on the market. It sold very quickly, which greatly reduced my stress over the selling. While doing all the work to sell my house, Sven simultaneously started helping me look for a new home. He was very respectful of my budget and my preferences, and it took a while but I eventually found a wonderful new home in the price range I could afford. I would 100% recommend Sven with my highest confidence, for any of your real estate needs! Margaret Higham

  • Initially, we contacted Sven Andersen to give us a comparable market analysis for our home as we had already spoken to another realtor. After his initial visit, it was clear that we should consider him to take on the sale of our house. His manner is friendly and professional and we were impressed by his confidence and genuine interest in helping us to prepare for this big move. Sven came back and gave us his undivided attention as he presented a very detailed market analysis. He explained to us the realities of the market and then priced our house accordingly. Once we decided that Sven was the right realtor for us, we knew that he would guide us through the process well. We were right, the sale of our house has gone incredibly smoothly. Sven has been there at any point that we have had questions or concerns and it is clear that he is our greatest advocate in this process. We would highly recommend Sven to anyone buying or selling a home. We feel fortunate that our friends recommended Sven to us as we don't think anyone else could have done a better job. Thanks Sven! Stephen and Mary Ellen Noble

  • We relocated to Winchester from Atlanta and Sven handled every circumstance of a complex sale like a pro. We had only one visit to see homes, he assessed our needs in advance and showed us only what we wanted...We had sticker shock coming from Atlanta and he negotiated an outstanding value...We had three kids and lots of "needs", and he never tired... We closed two months before moving in, and he took care of just about everything in our absence...thanks Sven! Jonathan Colehower Winchester

  • We give Sven our highest recommendation. His goal, which to us says it all, was to find the right house for our family-at the right price. Sven worked tirelessly to this end. He took the time to get to know our family, assess our needs and learn what was important for our new home. He helped us better understand the Winchester real estate market and was incredibly responsive and proactive on our behalf while at the same time being accommodating of our busy schedules. In fact, the day we found our new home was Winchester Town Day, his busiest volunteer day of the year. Despite his significant commitments, he helped us prepare a winning bid, and secure its acceptance, that very day. Sven's services were invaluable to us and his company a pleasure. Buying our first home was a daunting task made much easier by Sven's knowledge and commitment. Now we are settled into our new house and could not be happier. Bryn and Charlie Buck Winchester

  • When we decided to sell our home of over fifty years (and which had been in our family for over eighty years), it was a very emotional experience. By a stroke of luck, we managed to find the perfect realtor for us: Sven Andersen. Not only was Sven professional and knowledgeable but he was also sensitive to the fact that giving up a family home was not an easy decision to make. Since we had not been through the process of selling and/or buying a home recently, his ability to explain the process in laymen's terms was a real plus for us. In addition, he was always available to answer our questions and did everything he could to facilitate the process for us. His sound and thorough research provided us with realistic expectations about our property. He was candid and forthright throughout the process. We were extremely pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Sven Andersen to anyone looking to sell his/her home. Tom & Betty O'Doherty Winchester

  • Whether you're looking to buy or sell your house in Winchester, we'd recommend Sven Andersen for several reasons. First, he's genuine, easy to work with, and extremely organized. For example, a typical house hunting tour with Sven includes a well planned and well mapped route from house to house with key information on each house and neighborhood collected in a convenient binder. Second, Sven's technologically savvy and makes excellent use of the rapidly growing capabilities of email, the web, and digital photography. Third, he "knows" and is committed to Winchester as both a resident and "salesman" for the town itself. His enthusiasm about the town, its schools, its public facilities, and its other conveniences is catching. Michael & Meg O'Leary Winchester

  • We would definitely recommend Sven in a second!!!! Sven is genuine, friendly, easy going, knowledgeable, and gives 200% every day. He was always accessible when we needed him and always was there to help with anything. The sale of our condo was somewhat of a difficult process and Sven made it go so smooth. He truly cares about you as an individual and not just a sale. If you are looking for someone who is personable, honest, and looking out for your best interest then we would recommend Sven. We can't thank him enough for all the hard work that he put into the sale of our condo. Thanks Sven! Kim & Don Robbins

  • Sven's enthusiasm, energy and organizational skills are the qualities that he brings to the table and make for smooth transaction whether in buying or selling one's property. He is very thorough in his preparation and research and very knowledgeable in all areas of real estate. He is very direct and focused and guides you through the process smoothly and efficiently. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell their property. Glen Victor Doyle Winchester

  • Working with Sven took the mystery and pain out of the home selling process. His comprehensive marketing plan allowed our house to be seen through many venues. He was able to generate a lot of interest, and several offers. Throughout the process he kept us informed of developments, referred us to a good lawyer, and helped us through the various details until the closing. I wish he could help us on the west coast with our next house. Robert & Amy Ackroyd Medford

  • I really enjoyed working with Sven. He had an excellent sense of what kind of place I was looking for and took a lot of the stress out of buying a home. We had fun looking at places and he walked me though the sale of my new home. If I hadn't found Sven, I think I'd still be looking for a home. A lot of the agents I talked to seemed interested in quick sales. Sven was interested in me. He took his time, got a great sense of what I was looking for and worked around my schedule to show me some great places. When I found the house I wanted, he did a great job of making sure the sale went smoothly. He's the guy you should turn to when you need a home. Ian Ruderman Arlington

  • Sven was a wonderful realtor for us! We had to move fast in finding a house, which he did and more. He has such a great optimistic attitude which really helped when you are under such stress as moving your own home. We had hurdles and Sven assisted us in keeping us informed and moving through them in order to get the house we wanted. He was like a team member of our Move Team and together we made it happen. I would recommend him to anyone! Angelique & Mark Swingle Lexington

  • As a first time homebuyer, Sven took the time to learn about my lifestyle, goals and priorities before beginning our search. Sven's level of commitment and knowledge exceeded my expectations. He made sure I clearly understood the entire process of purchasing a new home from start to finish. As a result, I now own a beautiful home I once dreamed of and gained a trustworthy friend. Meredith Scott Melrose

  • We were faced with the challenge of finding a home in Boston from out of state. This meant our time in Winchester home shopping required efficiency, local experience and an understanding of our needs to best utilize the time we had available. Sven took the time to fully-understand what type of home would suit us and used his knowledge of Winchester and our requirements to ensure we didn't waste time during our visits. As a result, we found a perfect home in a short period of time. Importantly, during our review of homes, Sven displayed his knowledge of homes, construction and architecture by pointing out nuances that less sophisticated brokers wouldn't notice. As a first time home buyer, this was particularly helpful as many people we know have been exasperated by brokers pointing out the obvious. We would and do recommend Sven to anyone looking for a home in Winchester. Pete and Stacey Day Winchester

  • It was a pleasure to work with Sven and his team. They were professional, courteous and caring and most importantly I felt great knowing I was working with a team that had my best interests at heart. I would happily work with them again on my next real estate transaction. Mo and Sandy Chanmugham Winchester

  • Our experience with Sven Andersen and each member of his team was outstanding. The advice he gave us for preparing our home for sale was perfect. We were especially impressed with the photographs Sven took of our home for the listing. Sven was always professional and knowledgeable. We felt like we were in very capable hands during the entire process of listing and selling our home. Mark and Kerrie Cruickshank

  • We recommend Sven to anyone in the market for a home. Sven took the time to find the house that was RIGHT for us! He is extremely knowledgeable and pointed out all the little things that we did not know about. As first time home buyers, all that went into buying a house was overwhelming, but Sven made it easy for us. My wife and I wholeheartedly reccomend Sven (and Elaine was great as well!). Rob B. Wakefield

  • Sven and his team helped sell our home in 5 days! We worked together to price it right and they moved quickly to have an open house and get us set up for showings. Sven is fair and honest and works diligently to get the job done. Together with Elaine, they were easy to contact and always willing to lend a helping hand. I highly recommend using Sven at Remax Leading Edge to help you with your real estate endeavors. Colleen M. North Reading

  • Sven faced a difficult task when it came to helping us, as ours was a high-stress move with a young family across the country in a very short time frame. He handled the whole transaction professionally and made himself available around the clock throughout the process of selling our home. Sven is very knowledgeable about what does and does not sell a home and is willing to do whatever it takes to be the best representative he can be for you during the high-stakes transaction of selling a home. My husband and I highly recommend Sven and his team! Alexis R. Winchester

  • We highly recommend Sven and his team. Our house was on the market for months and we decided to give Sven the business after our prior contract expired. Our house was sold in a week and for above asking. Sven is a savvy marketer using the latest technology not only to reach a wider range of potential buyers but also to make sure the house shows well online. He also understands pricing and is a shrewd negotiator. He and his team go the extra mile for his clients. We ended up selling our home after we moved out of state - and felt so at ease having Sven handle the transaction. All the details were taken care of and he often went above and beyond to make sure our closing went smoothly. A.M. Menlo Park

  • We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. We felt supported and guided through buying our first house and couldn't be happier! Erin Coffey

  • We really enjoyed working with Marie. We have worked with many agents before, Marie is by far the best. She is super pleasant, very knowledgeable, efficient, responsive and never miss a beat. Even when running into issues during the purchasing process she gave us confidence that issues will sure be resolved. All these qualities really speaks to her professionalism, beyond our expectation, 6 out of 5 stars.... more will be on yelp, where we found the Anderson team. April Chuang

  • Working with Marie was a joy. She is super pleasant, very knowledgeable, always on top of things even though she is very busy. We have worked with quite a few agents and she's by far the best, totally beyond our expectation and very professional. I would definitely love to work with her again! April Chuang

  • The entire process is overwhelming. Our experience with Elaine and Sven was incredible. Robin was great too but our interactions felt a little "light" and communicating all the details didn't always happen. I think the best take away is assume your customers know nothing about buying/selling a house, because they probably don't! Jessi Welch

  • All of you were fabulous! Mary and Fran Lawler

  • Sven and his team are qualified, competent, responsive, hard working and personable. They make things happen and can help when problems arise. I recommend them all, Sven, Elaine, Marie, Shelley, Robin, Chris, Stephen, without reservation. Janice Kopp

  • Robin was always polite on the phone, did what she said she would, and timely in notifying us of the steps we needed to take. Debbie Nifong

  • Our realtor, Marie Montieth, went above and beyond to make our home buying process seamless. She was professional and great to work with! we will definately recommend her to other friends who are in the market looking for a home. Malissa Markos

  • Our realtor, Marie Montieth, made our home buying experience very pleasant. The process was seamless and she made us feel very comfortable with her professionalism as well as her great attitude! We will definitely recommend Marie to other friends who are looking for a home. Malissa Markos

  • My husband and I worked with David Proch-Wilson on finding our "forever home". David was extremely helpful throughout this whole process. We are first time home owners and really did not know a whole lot about the process and David was a huge help in making recommendations, telling us what to look for and explaining every step of the whole process which can be quite complicated! David was always so kind and professional and a great resource for us. He knew exactly what we were looking for and we couldn't have found our new home without him!! Colleen Lloyd

  • The team worked tirelessly to help find us the perfect home. We closed last week and could not be happier with the home we purchased! Both Sven and Marie are professional, knowledgeable, friendly, hard working, honest, and down to earth. They were consistently accessible with questions we had and always promptly obtained answers for us. House hunting can be a very difficult process, but they were so wonderful to work with, they made it seem easy. They were never pushy or impatient, always giving us the right information and the perfect amount of time we needed to make the best decisions for our family. Joseph & Maryanne Senna

  • Your team was super helpful in getting us ready to show the house in the course of just one week - got us a painter, brought in the stager, etc. Sven and all Andersen staff very flexible and professional in working with us on a super tight schedule. Our Yale St house sold in just 2 days. Stu Vaeth

  • Our new home search was a very long process in a very difficult market situation, and Dave was super patient dealing with both us and the many attempts to bid and buy a smaller home. He is quite knowledgeable and professional in dealing with other realtors. The patience paid off and with some luck we found a great place on WInter Pond. Stu Vaeth

  • It was the most enjoyable house buying experience, and I am so happy that Robin Foley suggegsted I work with this team because everyone was amazing and very helpful. And without Sara and Steve we would not have our dream home. Deirdre Finn
