Stephen O Johansen

Stephen Johansen’s background in teaching is the backbone of his client experience. His ability to break-down and effectively communicate the seemingly overwhelming real estate buying, selling and leasing processes into easy, understandable pieces is key for his clients.  Working in several different countries, states and cities with culturally diverse populations has given him the patience, perspective, and negotiation skills necessary to be successful in our ever-changing world. He is passionate about real estate and loves using his skills to help tutor his buyers and sellers about the ins and outs of the local Greater Boston real estate market. 

Leveraging his 7 years of experience in leasing, sales, and property management, Stephen is able to advise his clients, be it a first-time home buyer, seasoned home-owner or savvy investor, not only on the process of the transaction but also on the value of their investment based on its location, amenities, and potential rental income.  He’s adept at knowing which updates and renovations will add the most value and maximize his clients’ return on their investment. Above all he is skilled at finding the right home for his buyer or renter and the right buyer for his seller.

Stephen seeks every day, in every interaction and transaction, to act honorably and educate where possible, or seek out answers for himself and for his clients where not. He is extremely loyal and will bring his considerable skills to bear for his clients to ensure a smooth, seamless, and stress-free transaction for all involved.
