What Clients Are Saying

Byron performed miracles for us in selling our New Bedford home and buying our new condo.

Jen & Alex 
Jen & Alex - Byron performed miracles for us.

We were referred by a friend and colleague, Jeffrey Evoro who sold his Freetown home thru Byron. He was so impressed with Byron that he suggested we use him to list our properties. Byron is very efficient and a real pleasure to work with. 

Faith & Manny DiMiranda
Plymouth

I have used Byron in the pass and I would never use another realtor.

Chrissy & Tyler Reis
Chrissy & Tyler Reis - Byron is a great agent

Byron is the " poster board " for realtors. He delivers excellence and knowledge to his buyers and sellers. He takes all the worry away from the entire process. He was a pleasure doing business with him again

Tabetha Oliveira
Tabetha Oliveira - Byron was great

My husband and I were 1st time home buyers, a few years ago we began our home search with Byron whom I found online on a local listing. Ultimately at that time we just weren’t ready to commit so Byron helped us with a rental. This year when we were ready to begin our search, we immediately went back to Byron because we remember him as attentive, responsive, has incredible local knowledge, and is an expert in his field. We knew we would have the smoothest process with Byron and we were right. Byron was always available to answer and facilitate the offer and purchase and sale process. He and communicated by text and it was highly helpful. Everyone told us the home buying process would be dreadful, but honestly, it was piece of cake with Byron and his team. In 6 weeks time, we found THE house and closed. Everyone at Berkshire Hathaway made this a smooth process and always made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. I highly recommend Byron and Berkshire Hathaway Home Services to anyone and everyone.

Mr. & Mrs Eric Stone - Would use no other realtor

Byron Ford was fantastic to work with. Extremely knowledgeable of the market and extremely flexible to work with. Would meet me at anywhere on my schedule even though it was well out of his way for him, including weekend mornings. He cares for all the last-minute closing details that I did not have time to do. He even paid for some it out of his own pocket. His energy is breathtaking to behold. I would recommend him to family and friends in a heartbeat. Oh...and BTW sold our property for 10K over asking price.

Assonet 
Eric Stone, - Assonet Posterboard for Realtors

Byron was great to work with. Going through such a difficult time, Byron made it an easy process by accommodating my brother’s and my busy schedule. We had little or no time to bring the house up to FHA standards, so Byron was willing to use his resources to help us out. It was a pleasure to work with him and I would certainly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a realtor.

Kellen J. Azevedo, New Bedford - Byron made the process so easy

It has been a pleasure to work with Byron and the office again.  I’m in my dream home  I will definitely call again for any real estate needs.
