In the last 5 years I have met many people in the industry...some great and not-so-great characters. Hellen ranks as one of the best I have encountered. She has deep knowledge and understanding of real estate. One of the most impressive things about her is her capacity to cut through it...and leave you with highly intelligent but easy-to-digest takes. I offered to pay her to help me in an area of need. She instead took 10 mins and provided me with valuable information, ultimately saving me money and time. This...is high integrity. She is honest, thoughtful, charismatic, and an outstanding professional. Talk to her for a few minutes and you will see quickly that you are dealing with someone as bright as any of her peers in a crowded room.....but self-aware and confident enough that she need not prove it to anyone. A real professional. Highly recommended.

Helen was a great realtor when she sold us the property in 2013. Listened, showed us only property that filled our many needs. Was open to sell us a single family home and suggest we convert it to a commercial mixed residential property. Thinking out of the box. She got us a great deal and showed us how to navigate it to improve the property. ROI was excellent. The property was $500k in 2013 and we sold it with city approved plans for 1.4k. Helen made us rich! She is the best! George L. (Boston)
"Helen is incredibly knowledgeable and patient-we went through 5 different properties before finding our dream house and she never once pushed us into a decision or tried to rush us. She is a wonderful realtor, I recommend her to everyone I know."
Chris & Nicole G. (Hyde Park)
"Helen was very easy to work with and very helpful in the process of preparing the condo for sale. In addition to marketing the unit and taking care of all the needed paperwork and inspections, she arranged for painting and junk removal, making the challenge of moving out after 40+ years much more manageable."

"Great agent to work with and very helpful, always a positive attitude."

I would highly recommend Helen Tarantino to anyone who is selling or buying a home. I would give her a 10, although she deserves much more. She was there for me every step of the way, going over and above what anyone would expect from a realtor. In a word she was "outstanding".
Connie C. (West Roxbury)
"She really made the process easier for us. Since we were first time home buyers, she was very patient with us and answered all our questions. She was very prompt with her replies and very reachable."
Manish N. (Foxboro)
"Helen was absolutely fantastic. She went above and beyond to assist us while we were searching for our home and relocating from D.C. We actually ended up trusting Helen so much, she put an offer in for us site-unseen. We actually bought our home without even seeing it first. It was a pleasure to work with Helen and have her industry expertise contribute to a smooth relocation to our new home."
Kelle & Erin B. (Jamaica Plain)
"Helen was the best resource we could have found for buying our first home. Her tremendous knowledge of the area and the value of homes we looked at was incredible. I would absolutely recommend Helen to anyone looking to buy a home."
Charlie & Kasha H. (Dedham)
"I was so lucky to have Helen as my agent. I could not have bought a house without her help. I was the first time home buyer and had no clue how to process purchasing a house. Nevertheless, she was patient and replied to my emails or phone calls right away. She is a professional,knowledgeable,honest,and the best agent ever! Even though I was not a big customer,she treated me like an important client.At some point,I had a tough time in the process of purchasing, but she provided answers to my concerns and guided me through.I certainly recommend Helen as your buyer's agent and look forward to working with her again in the future."
Mayumi H. (Chelsea)
"Helen was fabulous! She made my first time home buying experience a breeze. She was always available to answer my many questions and was prompt in her responses. She was professional, knowledgeable and seemed to know my needs better than myself! It is because of her, that I found the perfect house in a wonderful community. I would recommend her without reservation and am so happy I had her to walk me through this process!"
Leslie S. (Milton)
"Unbelievable, best agent ever, always returned my calls asap, very knowledgeable of all aspects of real estate, and very assuring and upbeat. I would highly recommend Helen to everyone I come across wanting to sell their property. She is a keeper!"
Tom F. (Dedham)
"Helen went above and beyond to help get my house on the market. Her suggestions on cleaning out and staging were invaluable. Thanks to her hard work, I received an offer on my house which I accepted the day after the first open house."
Marie R. (Dedham)
"Helen is quite simply the best agent we have ever used in any of our past home searches. She was extremely attentive to our needs for a home, diligent in her research, timely in her communication with us, flexible in her schedule, honest, and never pushed us in any way. I couldn't recommend her more."
Eric & Beetna B. (West Roxbury)
She went over and above what any agent needs to do. Helen was just an email or call away if we had questions (and we had many), and was always quick to respond. Our house sold the first day of the open house, due to the fact that Helen helped us to prepare our house for the showing and "got the word out" to as many prospective buyers as possible. We would most definitely recommend her as an agent to sell your home. As a matter of fact, she just sold our daughter's house as well, and our daughter and her husband are just as happy with Helen as we are.
Craig & Judy A. (Easton)
"Helen was instrumental in selling our house. She was very reachable, no matter what hour of the day, gave us great advice on how to allow the home's attributes to stand out, was VERY knowledgeable about was happening in the real estate marketplace, and was very much involved with our transaction from pre-listing to post-close. Her professionalism and experience have been evident in not only our last transaction, but the two before as well!"
Rosemary & Bill D. (Easton)
"Helen is honest, hard-working, knowledgeable and friendly. A superb agent."
Anne M. (Wareham)
"Helen was amazing! She responds quickly, is very professional and approachable and is very knowledgeable of the real estate market. I would highly recommend!"
Tara D. (Canton)
"Helen was knowledgeable, always available to answer questions and to tour properties, and very patient. I would recommend our agent to family and friends!"
Melissa L. (Hyde Park)
"We looked at several homes. Helen was great in finding the ideal one!"
