"Ward is an exceptionally knowledgeable, kind, and dedicated agent. We were very fortunate to work with him to look for our new house. He patiently took us to numerous properties every weekend, explained his honest opinions, and eventually found us the home that has all the wish lists. Every time we had questions, he responded immediately. Even after he sold us the home, we kept in touch. We will certainly work with him when we sell this home in the future. If you are looking for houses in the Newton area, I recommend him as your agent with my highest enthusiasm."
