My name is Dan Demeo, and I am the proud team leader of the Demeo Realty Group. With over 28 years of experience in real estate, I am very fortunate to love what I do each and every day. Both of my parents were Realtors and taught me how to engage with buyers and sellers to create incredible client experiences. As a lifelong resident of Newton, this business has been a passion of mine for decades and will be for many more.

Having assisted hundreds of buyers and sellers, I truly understand every single element of a real estate transaction. Often part of my role is coaching my clients to ensure that their needs are being met, and they feel confident moving forward. After years in the business, there simply isn't a challenging, difficult scenario that I have not found a resolution for. One of the greatest benefits I offer my clients is my experience negotiating hundreds of transactions, protecting my client's best interests.

My experience renovating homes has also been beneficial to my buyer and seller clients as well, especially around determining value and setting pricing. I know every aspect of a home and have the ability to see real estate from an incredibly broad, unique perspective. There isn't a part of a property I don't know about and cannot help someone understand. I've found that my clients truly appreciate having a team captain assisting them through the transaction.

I am a big believer in positive energy, sharing, and being around good people. My passion for working with and being around people drives me every day to deliver incredible results. I pride myself on doing the best possible job and creating great experiences for people, ensuring they feel incredibly happy and confident about their decisions.

My approach to working with clients is very honest, straightforward, and sincere with 96% of my business comes from word of mouth referral. I am adamant about treating others with respect, regardless of status, never giving to gain, and focusing my efforts on giving back to the community. I am involved in the Child Assault Prevention Program, where I volunteer to teach elementary school children to stick up for themselves to prevent bullying, stranger danger, and promote childhood wellbeing.

During my free time, I enjoy snowboarding and playing golf. You could also find me in a chess game or at a pool table. Outdoor activities are some of my favorite, including going to the beach and spending time with my family.

To work with a passionate, experienced, and results-driven Realtor, please feel free to call, text, or email me anytime.

    Dan is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate when it comes to real-estate. He and his team worked tirelessly to find us a 2-Family home. Dan has not only become a trusted partner for me and my wife, but has also become a good friend in the process.We will definitely will be calling on Dan for our next home purchase/selling needs!

    We sold our condo in a 2 family Victorian through Dan. Because condos in 2 family homes represent somewhat unique properties, we knew that the buyer would also be somewhat unique. We wanted an agent that had experience selling similar properties. We noted that Dan had bought and sold numerous similar condos in Newton and hence chose Dan as our real estate agent. In general, we are very analytical in our thinking and keep stores of data on homes (including cost of fixtures, appliances etc) in estimating prices of houses and condos. Our condo was a beautifully done condo in the 2nd and 3rd floor of a gorgeous Victorian. We knew the newton condo and single-family markets very well and also had a very good sense of timing and a range for the appropriate listing price. However as with any nervous seller, we often found ourselves wavering both in terms of the list price as well as the timing ( i.e. the precise weekend to list).The condo market had a lot of variance and we kept wavering on price. We were looking to sell our condo and then buying a single family; hence getting the right sale price was extremely important to us because we knew that buying a single family house would be even tougher. Dan provided very sound realistic advice on a listing price. In a crazy hot market, although there was a bidding war (typically 10-12% over asking with 5-6 offers) on every house / condo near us, it was Dan's advice that clearly informed us that we should not under-price our condo (in anticipation of a bidding war)One of his gems was "you should list the condo at the price that you want for it - don't assume a bidding war - what happens if you get only 1 offer - what are you going to do if you price it low?"We completely re-thought our pricing strategy and priced it at exactly what we wanted for our condo. We had 2 offers at our first showing and both were modestly above asking and the exact same $ figure. We shudder to think what would have happened had we priced it much 10% lower in anticipation of a bidding war.Dan also provided extremely sound advice in terms of "timing" i.e. when / which weekend to list. He guided us on what we needed to do in terms of clean-up and fixing in order to prep for a sale. His "stager" helped create the right ambience for our condo. He also sent over a handy man to fix some small items in our condo that needed fixing and also another handy-man who took care of small paint jobs and touch ups.Throughout the process, Dan reflected immense confidence in his ability to get the sale done. He is surrounded by an excellent team (assistants, handy-men, stager, lawyer) and he went the extra mile even at closing when the buyer, at the time of walk-through asked him to replace some lamps and remove some objects from the basement.Three things really stood out regarding Dan and his team:1- The ability to get his clients prep for a sale3 - The ability to close a deal2- The ability to communicate confidenceThe sale of our condo gave us confidence to buy a house at the appropriate price (in this crazy market) and again Dan came through. Because the market was really hot, we had trouble thinking straight in terms of how to bid. We made offers on 2 homes at prices that Dan informed us clearly that we were not competitive. As we should have expected, we lost out on those. We overvalued another house and Dan informed us that we needed to stay away from that house and that it wasn’t worth the price. The price of that house dropped subsequently. It was slowly dawning on us how well Dan really knew the market. He put us on the right path and we won an offer on a prime property that was better than the ones we lost out on. Dan sees "value" in houses when most people see "price

    Working with Dan was the best possible experience we could have had when looking for a home to buy. His knowledge of the market is undeniable. He is honest, thorough, patient, and prompt. He replied promptly to calls, emails and texts (no matter how silly I thought my question was!) He took the time to learn what wanted and needed and helped us every step of the way through closing. We give Dan our highest recommendation!

    We recently sold our family home with Dan and had a terrific experience. Not only did he assist us with the sale process, but also connected us with valuable vendors to help clean out the house, and get it market ready in a short time. Emails and phone calls were responded to in a timely manner, and I never felt as though I was asking too many questions (which I do!) I really felt the whole process was smooth, and dare I say easy, because Dan and his team really know what they are doing, and advised us so well along the way. Additionally, Dan knows the Newton market very well, the listing price spot on and we received multiple offers in one day! Thanks so much to Dan and his entire team. Thank you for making this process so seamless.

    My experience with Dan was outstanding. He is extremely hard-working and dedicated and helped me through the entire process of selling my condo in Brighton. Dan is very knowledgeable about the area and always makes sure you are happy and informed with the process and the results of any deal.

    Dan was there from the beginning, even before the house was listed for sale. He used his long list of extremely dependable contacts to suggest painters, interior designers, and later a lawyer when closing the deal. He is extremely reliable as are the people he put me in contact with. Dan always kept me up to date on any potential buyers and held very successful open houses which resulted in the sale of my condo.

    I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

    I started working with Dan at the end of February. He was eager to help a pair of first time buyers navigate the home buying process and pressed to ensure we were really getting into a great home. Our home buying experience was quite straight forward, but it was great having Dan in my corner. Additionally, Dan’s network of referrals is extremely impressive and work together for rapid processing.
