Introducing Moshe Elmekias

As you may have noticed, the website has been undergoing some changes over the last few weeks. If you had not heard, we, Matthew Gaskill and Alisa Peterson, transferred to Sotheby’s International Realty in Los Angeles. In an effort to best serve our clients in Boston, we sought out a partner to take over our business who is local, attentive, and knowledgeable in the Boston real estate market.  Partnering with Moshe Elmekias was an easy choice for us since we saw how he operated first hand as we worked together in the South End office of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty. Not only was Moshe a colleague, but a trusted friend and a source of insight based on his 15 years of experience working in the Boston real estate market.

Moshe Elmekias | Boston Realtor | Gibson Sotheby's International RealtyMoshe joined Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty nearly 15 years ago and quickly became a top producer, consistently ranked among the company’s elite brokers. He has earned recognition and praise from his clients, building his real estate family one extraordinary transaction at a time.

In the past 20 years, Moshe has assisted countless buyers and sellers reach a satisfactory outcome by utilizing his knowledge, experience, ethics, straight-forward approach and ability to keep calm in stressful situations. He remains involved in all aspects of his clients’ real estate transactions, making himself available at any point in time and keeping everyone informed at every step. Moshe firmly believes that a real estate transaction should not only be smooth and successful but fun and exciting!

If you have any real estate needs in Boston, Alisa and I recommend Moshe without reservation. We decided to transfer our business to him because we know he will attend to the clients we were fortunate enough to work with in the same high standard of service to which Alisa and I held ourselves.

And if you or anyone you know has any real estate needs buying, selling, or renting a home in Los Angeles, you can find Matthew and Alisa at luxuryhomeslosangeles.com.

How We Can Help You Decide Where to Live in Boston

Are you new to the area or looking for the neighborhood that best suits your lifestyle?

We are available to discuss and share our insights on the city and its neighborhoods. Trust us, we could talk about Boston and its neighborhoods for hours. But if you’d prefer to do some research on your own before you get us talking, our website is a great source.

We have integrated the website with resources such as Walk Score, education.com, Yelp, and Google Maps to help educate those in the midst of an international relocation and those looking for a new neighborhood to call home.

  • The Walk Score feature will provide one score for the walkability of a location and another score for its access to public transportation.
  • The Yelp integration allows you to locate nearby services including dry cleaners, coffee shops, grocery stores, health providers, athletic facilities and gyms, restaurants, and much more.
  • Our education.com feature will show area schools on a map, provide contact information, offer a brief description as well as a link to more thorough information and reviews on the education.com website.
  • By featuring Google Maps on our website, we are able to provide access directly to Google Street View without the need to leave the property listing.
  • The Zillow integration offers a variety of charts and data providing insight on the real estate market and area demographics.

We think these tools will give you the ability to find the area right for you and your lifestyle. Of course, I am always available to discuss in more detail or if you have any questions.

3 Tips to Stay Ahead of the Current Real Estate Market

Do you feel like you are a few steps behind the real estate market? Is every house you inquire on already under agreement?

This is one problem with the large national real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia. These sites were not built with the intention to provide information, so they are not concerned with whether listings are current or accurate. Their intent is to sell leads to real estate agents and, to this end, the sites will withhold certain information to encourage you to contact one of their paying agents.

Our website is updated with the MLS each hour, so you know the information is current. Another benefit we can offer with our website is the ability to save your searches and have the system send you daily email summaries of any properties matching your criteria. The triggers prompting a listing to be added to your daily email alert include a new addition to the market, a price reduction, and status changes, which is helpful when a property goes back on the market after a buyer falls through. Watch the video above to see how easy it is to set up daily email alerts for MLS online casino listings.

You should also be aware every property does not make it to the internet. Some sellers do not want their property online at all, so the property is shopped around within the real estate community. Other properties are shared among agents before going public, so once it does hit the market buyers are already lined up. If you would like to set up a consult, our Realtors would be able to get a good idea of what you are looking for and alert you of any pocket listing matching your search criteria.
