Thumbprint Realty really helped me and my roommates out to make sure we found the right place for us.

They did an awesome job finding places that matched our criteria and was always right on time and on top of things. He was able to show us places that we would definitely not have been able to find on our own. I highly recommend Thumbprint Realty for your moving needs.

The house buying process can be stressful.

But for every bump and hiccup James was with me every step of the way. He was like my own personal emergency homebuyers hotline. He helped me find a tenant, and even bought and installed a new screen door that the seller promised but never provided. He was honest, easy to reach, and always on top of everything.

James made the journey to my new house easy, painless and transparent. I recommend James and his team. If you are buying a house call James and his team they are the best. Thank you James.

James found us exactly what we wanted.

The process was easy, fast AND honestly painless. With all of the stress that comes with finding the perfect home James took it on and made the whole process enjoyable and exciting. I feel blessed he was our agent.


Being first time homebuyer, I was a little intimidated at first.

Luckily, I was referred to Joanna Edwards at Thumbprint Realty. It was a pleasure to have Joanna as my real estate agent. She made the process much easier than I had been anticipating. She never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. She was very knowledgeable, professional, patient, and friendly to work with. I never felt forced to make an offer and when I finally found the “one “and ended up in bidding war, Joanna walked me through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that I wrote a letter to the seller to explain why I thought they should choose me. It was an unconventional approach, but it worked, and I thank Joanna every day for that. Now, I have several friends looking for homes and I always recommend Joanna to them. I highly recommend Joanna E. @ Thumbprint Realty Thank you once again for your hard work and dedication - I truly appreciate it! Michaelle D


We purchased our first home with James as our agent .

We feel he went above , and beyond our expectations. The home buying experience can be scary, and he always made us feel at ease . We highly recommend James. He is professional, reliable and most importantly, he listens to the buyers .


As first time home buyers, this process was overwhelming and stressful, but having Nathan as our agent made things easy and comfortable.

We got along very well with him from the get go, and he was always patient and available for the many, many questions we had. He also helped mediate our interactions with loan officers, attorneys, and other necessary individuals, and his assistance was very welcome. Nathan was also really good about helping us to negotiate with the seller after the home inspection. He reached out to get quotes and really went to bat for us in order to get parts of the inspection addressed. Throughout the process, he was a strong advocate and ally which is exactly what an agent should be. We definitely recommend him as an agent.

I started thinking of applying for a mortgage 2 years after being in a bad car accident.

I was reluctant at first because my credit was not the best (I had 3 charge offs as a result of the car accident). Speaking with Joanna, I decided to give it a try with getting pre-approved. Surprisingly I got preapproved. Finding a house in this market seemed so difficult. I found one right away but someone beat me with their offer. I was discouraged but Joanna assured me that we would find my house. We saw a few more before finding the perfect condo. My offer was immediately accepted and we moved forward. There were some hiccups along the way such as having to get FHA approval and a closing delay. We finally got to the closing table and I was able to breathe again after receiving my keys. Joanna was the best real estate agent, calming my fears along the way


If your buying, selling , or looking to rent out your investment property Tayla is someone you DEFINITELY want to represent you.

Dealing with buying a home or whatever your case may be can be a time of stress anxiety and indecisiveness . Tayla was empathetic to my situation, EXTREMELY informative and patient . She put me at ease and allowed me to focus more on other things I had to deal with. She was also attentive and competent throughout the whole process . At the end of the day I was elated and more than satisfied with the service and results she rendered. She put me in a position to be great! I would recommend Tayla for anyone's real estate needs in a heartbeat.

I first started working with Tayla in July 2018 while I was deployed.

I let her know my needs and that I would be returning home in a few months and right away she got to work helping me find my dream home even from thousands of miles away. In October 2018 we finally sat down face to face and the journey to a home that felt just right for me continued. I had a very particular home in mind and she was more than patient and flexible with me. Tayla was always available for my questions or concerns, even if it was my 3 am calls. The process of purchasing a home can be overwhelming but Tayla made it as easy as possible and because of that she will forever be my go-to for any real estate needs.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Tayla Andre just recently on a sale of a two-family home.

I was the listing agent and Tayla was the buyer’s agent. Tayla was very professional and very easy to work with during the entire sale process. Tayla has very good interpersonal skills and was great at keeping in touch throughout the sale. Tayla truly had her buyers best interest as a priority at all times. I have been selling homes for 14+ years and Tayla Andre was definitely one of the better realtors that I have had the pleasure of working with.

My daughter, needed relocated to Boston to begin her career in Journalism by August 12.

We were having trouble finding a decent, affordable, and safe apartment in Boston while still in New Orleans. Not knowing what to do I sought help in a group chat for my Sorority. One of my sister’s Linda Monteiro connected me with a friend of hers, Denisha, who although out of town on vacation, still connected me her team member a wonderful young man Nathan Johnson of Thumbprint Realty. He literally took care of the entire process long distance. I literally showed up on last Thursday, collected the keys and started moving the Roommate in. He even helped me find my way back to the apartment when I was lost in the city. If ever you are in need of a Real Estate Agent in Boston please him. Nathan is caring, passionate about his craft and a true professional. I highly recommend him.

I went with Tayla first and foremost because I love your energy right off the bat.

Then we spoke and you gave me the sense of all would be OK and taken care of. I truly appreciated in mired that though you are an agent to many, you made me feel important and that I mattered. Your diligence and quick response were "One of the Beeeeeeeeeeest." Turnaround time was immaculate. Attention to detail equals superb. Patients. Even when I got a few doors slammed in our faces LOL. Understanding and time management to fit in a small window so many things we accomplish was insanely top-notch. I definitely felt like I was receiving The VIP treatment. Lastly, your life for the culture, our people and your determination to make a change even one speck at a time was truly admired. One for the culture it was a milestone for the future. Love you to the moon and back


We can't say enough great things about James!

From start to finish he made us feel comfortable, and as first time home buyers that was huge. He was attentive and very accessible throughout the entire buying experience. James made himself available for all open houses and responded promptly to all calls/emails when we had questions (and we had a lot of questions). James is very knowledgeable, he provided us with a great deal of advice and support along the way. He helped us find our first home and took off as much stress as possible, while being very encouraging and understanding. Thanks to James we found our dream multi-family home, so it was a no brainer when we decided to also use James to assist with locating a tenant. James posted the unit, conducted all of the background checks, viewings and he quickly found us a great tenant. James even went so far as to installing closet shelves and window blinds for us in the apartment before the tenant moved in!! Needless to say, we would absolutely recommend James to anyone looking for a new home (or tenant) and have total trust and confidence in him!


"Nathan helped us from the moment we decided we wanted to be homeowners.

We were not well informed about the process, the risks, benefits, etc. involved. One step at a time we got there. Nate was patient, detail-oriented, and always looked for answers even when he didn’t have them. Buying a home is definitely a process that takes time and dedication and one of the most serious commitments you will ever make. It’s important that whoever you have as your agent that they always have your interests come first. I can say undoubtedly that Nathan has proven exactly that and I would recommend him to anyone, especially those that have never gone through this before."

To Whom it may concern: I chose to work with Tayla as my real estate agent initially at the recommendation of a friend.

I continued to work with her for a number of reasons. She proved to be knowledgeable about the areas that I was considering and offered suggestions without being overbearing. As a first time home buyer without much experience looking at properties, Tayla took the opportunity to answer all of the questions that I had, and even the ones that I didn't realize I had. She has kept in timely contact with the seller's agent to provide me with information. Tayla has trusted legal and financial contacts who she is able to connect clients with if necessary when they are ready to move forward with a purchase. She has worked with me to make the process as smooth as possible, including coming to me to pick up checks, and being available for communication during inconvenient times. In conclusion, Talya seems to be very knowledgeable about the process, the greater Boston area, as well as the ability to provide quality business contacts.

Donaldson and Tahina helped me purchase my dream home last year.

I was looking for a multi-family home which would was recently built and a location close to my work. Team Donhina went above and beyond to fulfill my needs by finding me a 3 family home 15 minutes away from my work in a beautiful residential location. We were able to win the bid when there were 7 other bids on the house. The team still stays in touch to check up on my purchase a year after I bought the house. I will definitely consult the team when I decide to purchase my next home. I would recommend Team Donhina to anyone who is looking to purchase a house in the Greater Boston area.
