Here’s what some of Rachel's satisfied customers are saying about her:
Rachel Bodner exemplifies what a broker should be. Someone who understood our needs and stood by us until we found our dream house (and we did) – what sets Rachel apart is she’s always putting her client’s interests at the forefront. She always took our calls or got back to us immediately, she even accompanied us to the town hall to research lot sizes and was always respectful of our decision – we never felt pressured or pushed. Her consummate professionalism, honesty and dedication to her craft has uplifted the sometimes unsavory image some brokers earn, but Rachel has reinstalled our faith in the very valuable service a talented and dedicated broker provides. We will use Rachel again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her services.
Rachel is a true partner -- a rare blend of business savvy and neighborhood insights as well as someone who is completely honest, approachable and super to work with. We found Rachel after speaking with nearly a dozen other agents when we first moved to Sudbury several years ago, and sought her out again when it was time to sell. I'd recommend her wholeheartedly -- a true gem!
Matt- Sudbury MA
Rachel was recommended to us by a friend who worked with her last year (we've since passed her name on to our friends too!). Immediately, we felt at ease in a hectic market because Rachel knew Sudbury so well -- giving us insight into neighborhoods, past sales, and the kinds of houses we should expect to see based on what we wanted. Throughout the process she was always available and clear about the next steps we needed to take and made the whole thing go very smoothly!

Rachel is the best! I randomly found her online, and was the first realtor I called. I am so glad I did. She is always friendly, professional, responsive and knowledgeable. Whenever I tried to reach her via text, email or phone call, she always got back to me within half an hour if not sooner. I know she is busy with lots of clients, but she never made me feel she was too busy for me. She always made time for me. Rachel didn't simply try to sell a house, but she was truly interested in helping me find my dream home and made sure I was happy with my choices. I am a first time home buyer, and didn't know much about the whole house buying process. But Rachel was there every step of the way, answering all of my (stupid) questions. I had a really hard time finding a house, going through 4 bidding wars, and had a massive trouble with the bank getting a mortgage, and Rachel was always there to help me go through the process. She always did more than I expected of her. I finally got a house that I love. I love it so much that I never went through buyer's remorse. And I know that it wouldn't have been possible without Rachel. If I ever need to buy or sell a house in the future, she will be the first one I call!
Chung- Shrewsbury MA
Rachel was the best part of our home buying experience. We ended up looking in multiple towns and she was very knowledgeable about each one. She learned exactly what we were looking for and adapted well as that list evolved over time. She knows the house buying process in and out and made us feel extremely comfortable during each step. If we had questions, she would answer them quickly and thoroughly. We’ve already recommended her to our friends and couldn’t do so more highly.
Rachel is very knowledgeable, responsive, and good humored. She was very helpful in explaining the MA real estate process to us as we are new to the state. It was a delight to work with her throughout our home buying process.
Heidi- Carlisle MA
My wife and I were interested in downsizing from our large family home to a smaller home in n nearby town. We have experience buying and selling real estate, and we were looking for an agent with excellent knowledge of the current market and a solid background and skill set. We reviewed many local realtor's credentials, listings, and sales histories, and we narrowed our search down to the most promising realtors. After interviewing them, my wife and I chose Rachel, and we never looked back. Rachel helped us understand the market conditions at our price range and price our home properly. She created a lot of buzz for our property though eye catching pictures, and an enticing description. After a realtor open house and a general open house, we had multiple offers, and we accepted a full price offer for our house. Buying our new house was more challenging than selling our existing one as the inventory in our price range was quite limited, but Rachel was always on the hunt, and as usual, always a text or phone call away. Even with the limited inventory, Rachel was able to help us find a new home before we closed on our old one. She knows the markets in many towns, and her advice was always on point and extremely helpful to our search. We were very relieved to find our new home, especially given the tight market. My wife and will will happily use Rachel's services for our next real estate search.
Rachel is an absolute pleasure to work with! She made the whole home buying process for us simple and easy. We had an outstanding experience with Rachel as she responds instantly to texts, calls, emails and was always able to show us houses as soon as they popped up same day. She knows her stuff! Any question or request we had, she has the answers. Highly recommend working with her!
Alex- Framingham MA
Rachel is the most responsive, effective and professional agent I have come across in the real estate industry, both personally and in my capacity as an attorney. She listed and sold our Hudson, MA home and also helped us purchase our Sudbury, MA home. She successfully navigated several variables with our home sale and purchase and also led us to a new home that fit our very long list of criteria. We couldn't recommend Rachel highly enough to anyone looking to sell their home.
Scott and Stacy-Hudson MA
We recently moved to MA from out of state and Rachel showed us all the nearby towns we might be interested in, took us on showings and helped us negotiate a contract. We were very satisfied with the end result
Gouchen- Hopkinton MA
I have bought and sold with Rachel and I'd do it again without question. She is honest and very astute to her clients' requirements. One of her most impressive qualities is communication and positivity. We never felt rushed or anything other than total attention from someone that working on our behalf. Her experience and knowledge, especially in the Metro West area, is impressive.
Brian- Sudbury MA
She was very easy to work with, and kept me abreast of all that was going on concerning the house. I would highly recommend her as your Realtor. She was great!
Gwendolen- Sudbury MA
We moved from Arizona to Massachusetts and Rachel was one of our realtors. She exactly knew what we were looking for. She did not give up. Her perseverance is totally 5***** and because of her we are now living in the house of our dreams. Highly recommended. She will go above and beyond to satisfy all your queries and will get back to you in seconds. We love her and have a friend for life
Scott and Mala- Bolton MA
"Rachel has a proactive and positive attitude; it’s clear that she enjoys fitting the 'puzzle pieces' together to create the right match between a home and a family instead of just unlocking doors.
During our relocation to the MetroWest area from out of state, Rachel understood our specific house and neighborhood criteria, helped to narrow the field of available homes, maximized our house hunting visit without making us feel rushed, helped us create and negotiate an offer strategy, and worked diligently with us during the entire home buying process and beyond. She’s highly responsive, and made us feel like we were her top priority.
We had quite a positive experience working with Rachel, and can’t imagine being able to get through the relocation process without her. She’s a gem!" Chere and Sean- Marlborough MA
To the Manager of Coldwell Banker Sudbury,
I just wanted to send a note about Rachel Bodner that is long overdue. Rachel helped us find our home in Wayland and all I can say is she was absolutely outstanding. She was so nice and paitent with us (we must have seen 50-75 houses) because we didn't kknow what time we wanted to be in. She was always professional and very accomodating with her schedule. We asked her opinion about many things and she always stuck with the facts, which we appreciated. She also gave us helpful information about the diferent towns regarding schools recreation etc..which was great and so helpful. She also went above and beyond as far as if she didn't know something she would try to find the answer and get back to us promptly. She was such a joy to work with and I would recommend her hands down as one of the best real estate professionals I have ever worked with and we have moved quite a bit (Michigan, twice, Ohio). She made our first impression of Massachusetts an excellent one. Your lucky to have her in your office as a sales associate.
Kristin- Wayland MA
I wanted to say thanks for working with us and helping us, helping us in our house hunting project and for helping us find the perfect house for us.
Aju and Leena- Marlborough MA
Thank you so much for all your efforts in helping us find our new home! we are very excited about all that lies ahead, and we appreciate your guidance, knowledge and insights. we learned quite bitin our "first home" search and purchase.
Ashley and Jake- Sudbury MA
I want to thank you Rachel for ALL your help, advice and friendship in our process of finding the right house for our family. You were absolutely fantastic to work with and we would recommend you to anyone.
Kris- Sudbury MA
This letter is to document the outstanding professionalism, commitment, and integrity demondtrated by Rachel Bodner over the past 4 months serving as our USAA Mover's Advantage reffered buyers agent from Coldwell Banker. Rachel was an absolute pleasure to work with due to her daily commitment to service and paitience dealing with oour ever changing requirements and "wish list".
Rachel absolutely represented our best interests on several matters requiring the negotiation of terms and conditions on two seperate offers. She also referred us to a great home inspector and lawyer in the area which was extremely helpful being newcomers to the community. We knew they could be trusted since Rachel earned our trust on a daily basis.
Rachel quickly educated us on the communities located in the metro-west Boston area, and showed us as many diverse neighborhoods, covering over 7 towns and 2 counties. This process helped us determine what town best fit our family, budget, and needs. She met every request promptly and throughly.
I interviewed four different realtors prior to Rachel as our buyer's agent, and I am highly confident that I made the absolute right choice in realtors. Rachel is a true real estate professional, making this the least stressful and smoothest transaction I have ever closed on.
Keith- Acton MA
Thank you for all the help and guidance you provided to us during our search for our first home. It was really a pleasure working with you and would highly recommend your services to anyone who would be looking to buy/sell a home. (including us :) )
Jesha and Roshan- Marlborough MA
We wanted to send a big and sincere "Thank You" for all your time and work on our offer a couple of weeks ago. We learned a lot during that 48 hours, and definitely feel more prepared for the next "dump" that comes on the market. Your guidance and persistance was so welcome and necessary. We appreciate you!
Mark and Sabrina- Framingham MA
Thank you again for all your help with our move this summer. We REALLY appreciate all your hard work, especially when we had last minute issues with permits and closing dates. We were so lucky to have you working with us to get everything done. We will definitely recommend you highly to all our friends!
Nancy and Eric- Sudbury MA
Thank you so much for being the best Agent ever! We so appreciate your thoughtfulness, paitience, persistence and kindness. We could not have asked for anything more in an Agent. See you around the neighborhood!
Allison and Christian- Sudbury MA
Rachel was VERY attentitive and we had excellent communications with her. She stayed on top of the job of selling are house untill it was done.
Peter- Sudbury MA
Rachel was the best! Her patience and understanding of our needs was valuable. I look forward to working with her again in the future if selling or purchasing a property in the Boston area. I would highly recommend her to others.
Eric and Ayanna - Natick MA
Rachel went the extra mile in understanding our needs to help us find a reasonable home in a very challenging real estate market. She is very professional and personable. We are very happy with the service she provided and would definitely recommend her to my colleagues and friends.
Domingo and Mercedes -Hopkington MA
Savannah and Jessie and I just spent the evening over at our new house. You cant believe how excited they are! I am too. It really feels like home already!
You made it happen, Rachel. Thanks for riding out the storms, for getting good info, putting me in touch with good people and for listening to my needs. You are terrific at what you do. It goes without saying, but I will strive to send you as many potential Clients as I can. If I hear of anybody selling or buying a house, I will strongly suggest they call you.
Thank you for greatly improving the quality of life for my family.
Kristen- Wayland MA
“Moving from Texas to Boston and having just 5 weeks to locate and close on a house in a new market can be quite a challenge. Rachel made this task as smooth and enjoyable as one can. She is flexible, honest and dependable from start to finish. I highly recommend Rachel for seller or buyer and will definitely use her services again.
Thank you for all you did to find us a new home in Massachusetts. Working with you made this daunting task much more pleasurable.
Allison and Dave- Framingham, MA
We found Rachel through a friends recommendation. From a Buyer Agent she turned out to be a friend helping us in our first home purchase. It started with a complete analysis of the area, schools districts and houses sold with the same criteria that we were looking for. She armed us with the relevant statistics and maps. When we went to look for houses she allowed us to make our judgment and never forced her opinion or over sold the property. It took us almost two years of searching; we changed our mind multiple times. We had a few properties that the deal halted in different stages of the sell cycle for different reasons. We had multiple constraints and we did not make her life easy optimizing the outcome. Yet, Rachel patiently went along with us over and over again till we found the right property, in the right location within our budget. She cleverly negotiated the deal and saved us a lot of money with her advice. One example that I can remember, is that the Seller requested a long closing term and it was Rachel who suggested to split the long interest rate lock cost between us and the Seller. (I did plan to lock the rate but I did not think about it at this point in the negotiation process.)
She was not our first Buyers Agent; we had one in MA before and another in NJ so I have some baseline to compare. We will ask for her service if we ever need to move from the great place that we own now or if we get lucky and can afford a second property!
