" I give my highest recommendation to Pinnacle Residential Properties. For the purchase of my home they were instrumental in helping me with the negotiations, giving me sound guidance on pricing, negotiating the outstanding items on the inspection, and ultimately in the closing of the property. It was the first property I had purchased as a single woman, and Pinnacle tenaciously protected my interests in the dealings with the other broker and the owner.
Over the last 20 years I have purchased and sold multiple properties. The process can be exciting and challenging at the same time. Having Pinnacle as our broker to represent us, one with the utmost integrity, expertise, and dedication and commits to your satisfaction, has made the process a true pleasure. I will only use Pinnacle Residential Properties for all of my future transactions."
- Peggy Joukowsky, Wellesley, MA
"For the sale of my home, I immediately called Pinnacle Residential Properties. They helped me to put my house on the market within a week, and to set the price fairly and reasonably. Their expertise paid off in a big way-I was sent a potential buyer over the day of the open house who ultimately purchased my home for 99% of asking within 48 hours. I couldn't have been happier! …"
- Dan Hoover, Wellesley, MA
"I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Pinnacle's agents for their diligent efforts selling that property I had in my estate case. I truly believe that the effort they displayed paid off when they got the buyers to agree to pay $3.3MM. Never did I think that the property would fetch that amount of money. I cannot thank my Pinnacle agents enough for their guidance, time and unfettered availability to get that property closed. Any future sales in and around Wellesley will come directly to you!"
- Marty Kane, Esq, McGrath and Kane
"We are so thankful that we were able to work with Pinnacle Residential Properties in the recent purchase of our home in Wellesley! Our home buying process was long and complicated due to the fact that we were looking to purchase a house in Wellesley while trying to sell a home in another state. Our Pinnacle agents were on top of everything from the moment we started working together. Their knowledge of the Wellesley market is extensive….. What really sets them apart from other realtors we have worked with is their attention to detail…. They were expert negotiators and were able get us under contract the first day it was on the market. Our Pinnacle agents were such a pleasure to work with and were always available to answer any questions…. We can't recommend them highly enough!"
- Christina and Andy, Wellesley
"Our Pinnacle agents represented us with the highest level of expertise, knowledge and professionalism. Their attention to detail and their passion for excellence is unmatched. The only negative is that we relocated to a new state and will be unable to work with this talented team on our next home sale!"
- Greg and Cheryl, Wellesley
"… Working with our Pinnacle Properties' agent made selling our home easy; and that is something my wife and I appreciated! Our agent was thoughtful and caring and she made sure all bases were covered and that every issue was taken care of. In what is normally a stressful time, her professionalism and follow through on details made the whole process a calmer experience. Together with Pinnacle's market knowledge and marketing as well as web support, our agent was able to find qualified buyers quickly for our home. Moreover, after a thorough search, she located our new home with ease as well. If you need real estate services, we couldn't recommend her and Pinnacle more wholeheartedly."

"We are so thankful that we were able to work with Pinnacle's agents in the recent purchase of our home in Wellesley! Our home buying process was long and complicated due to the fact that we were looking to purchase a house Wellesley while trying to sell a home in another state. The agents were on top of everything from the moment we started working together. Their knowledge of the Wellesley market is extensive and they were constantly updating us with listings in our price range, sometimes even before they hit the market. What really sets them apart from other realtors we have worked with is their attention to detail. Their due diligence uncovered issues with a couple of homes we were interested in purchasing and helped us avoid buying a house that would need costly fixes. When we finally found our dream home they were expert negotiators and were able get us under contract the first day it was on the market. They were such a pleasure to work with and were always available to answer any questions. Not only did they help us buy a home we love, they worked so hard to make the process less stressful for us. We can't recommend them highly enough!"

"“Our Pinnacle brokers were all the things that we needed when we set out to find our new home; patient with our process, insightful about the market, and effective in negotiating the deal that we needed. They helped us understand the current market and explained the option that we would have available to us as we began our search. As our partner in this search, they walked the fine line between business savvy professionalism and a sensitivity to the very personal nature of our decision.

""I give the highest praise and recommendation to the real estate professionals at Pinnacle Residential Properties. I have given unconditional references to many friends and acquaintances who find themselves involved now or in the future with real estate transactions. There are three elements that are important to me in any professional, but particularly in a real estate professional. Those elements are honesty, knowledge and persistence on my behalf."
"Pinnacle and Elaine in particular, helped us with pricing, timing and expectations. It didn’t hurt that Elaine is often quoted in the news as an expert on real estate in the western suburbs and publishes trends and activity reports in the Wellesley Townsman. She is well known as thoroughly honest, informed and identified as the leader in residential sales in the area."
"Knowledge is a given with Elaine and her staff. These are accomplished professionals with proven track records. They ask the right questions, gather the best comparables to create the most favorable environment for their client, be it seller or buyer. These people are easy to recommend."
"Finally, persistence is a trademark of the Pinnacle team. A little story about after Elaine Bannigan sold our house (we were downsizing) and she took us to search for a condominium. We went to an area to see a number of units. Nearby there was a "for sale by owner" sign. Elaine said we should see that one, too. Upon viewing all the units and noting that the condo sold by owner was the same and at a much lower price, Elaine was persistent in helping us to secure it quickly. All I needed to make an offer was a check, which of course I was without. Elaine felt it was such a great buy for us and, always prepared, wrote the check for me to bind the "for sale by owner" condo (of course I paid her back!)."
"This real estate firm treats the client as a friend and looks to do what is necessary to make the arrangement work well for all parties. They are a win/win organization which I will continue to refer to all I know are in need of a Pinnacle real estate experience.""
