Combining a local’s familiarity with Greater Boston with an MBA from Babson (not to mention a certificate from the famed Dale Carnegie Sales Training program), Eric Glassoff is a double-threat who is as cordial, professional, and unthreatening as a realtor can be. Whether you are looking to buy, sell, or relocate, Glassoff’s experience, knowledge and tenacity will make sure that every transaction is handled efficiently and with maximal good feeling on all sides. For nearly three decades, this National Realtors Association Member and VP at Coldwell Banker has been among the top performers in the area, reaching the top 1% in sales at Coldwell Banker for many years in a row. Speaking of percentages, Glassoff also averages 6% over asking price for his customers and closes transactions on an average of 15 days. He also specializes in helping first time home buyers, and “empty nesters” downsize and in helping every customer find the home that it truly right for them.
When not supporting buyers and sellers, Glassoff works tirelessly for such vital organization as Pediatric Brain Cancer, Children’s Hospital, the Jimmy Fund, Brookline Police & Firefighters, and the MSPCA.
