“We met Fritz at an open house for a large but rundown property in Randolph. He was the representing realtor. I was impressed with the way he didn’t push the property on me but just pointed out details I might not have caught on my own. I brought my wife to see the house the next day. Fritz was very flexible in arranging a Wednesday night viewing with the seller’s family still in the house. My wife wasn’t impressed by the house but we bonded with Fritz right away and told him of our stress at trying to get our own condo ready to sell.
Fritz came over to see our condo a few days later, on a week night, and gave us simple advice on how to present our place. Suddenly, the idea of selling our condo became very achievable and within a week we had set up an open house.
We had three offers the day after the open house and very quickly moved onto the contract phase. Fritz marshaled the process along at every step making sure that everything was on schedule with the documents, etc. we were responsible for and with constant communication with the buyers realtor, attorney, inspector, etc. Everything went very smoothly and on-time. We sold the condo for $ 21,000 over asking and for $80,000 over our purchase price 4 years earlier. Fritz made me feel that I had a team behind me supporting me at every step. A truly great feeling when navigating such a stressful transaction as selling a property.
We were so impressed with Fritz that we used him as our buying realtor as well. He showed us properties right on target with our needs and wishes and arranged a good deal only slightly above asking in this extreme seller’s market. He arranged our attorney, who did an excellent job, and worked closely with our mortgage broker to get the financing approved on time. The seller had transferred the deed to the relocation company that represented the seller. We ran into an impasse on the financing when the bank balked at a one-deed transfer. Fritz broke that impasse by leveraging the resources of Coldwell Banker’s affiliated to clearly lay out the issues and solutions for this problem. The bank agreed to the loan the next day. The whole time-line from showing our condo to moving into our new house took 6 weeks.
I can’t say enough about Fritz, his professionalism, his knowledge and his tenacity in getting the deal done. I would heartily recommend him to anyone selling or buying a house.”

“We met Fritz through a recommendation of a previous client with Coldwell Banker. We were beginning a house search for our daughter who was a first time home buyer. Fritz took the time to find out what our daughter’s needs and wants were, and then he bent over backwards to find properties that would fit those needs. he was always available when it came time to look at homes fitting OUR schedule.
He did his homework on the properties that we saw providing any pertinent info we needed as well as some that most would not have found.
When it came time to make important decision, he was supportive and encouraging. He did his best to make sure we were comfortable and in the end our daughter came out with her perfect home.
Fritz’s easy going manner made it so easy to talk to him, and before the process was over we felt as though we were going through this with a dear friend. It would be our supreme pleasure to recommend Fritz to anyone we know that is in the market for a new home.”

“Fritz has been extremely helpful throughout the home purchase process. We knew we wanted to move to Sharon but didn’t really know what we may find there. Fritz listened to our needs and wants and showed us houses that fit our requirements. He was flexible and really responsive, which then enabled us to schedule quick showings within a day or so. He also suggested our lender and lawyer and it was clear to us that everyone worked as a team. This process couldn’t have been any smoother!
I will certainly recommend Fritz to anyone who is looking to buy in that area.
