Exceptional work on several real estate transactions
I have used Jen for several real estate transactions - both as a buyer and a seller. Some involved unique challenges, such as one occurring at the beginning of the Covid lock-down and one involving a foreign party on the other side. She has always been responsive, professional and thorough. The thing I appreciate most about working with Jen is that I always knew that she was in my corner and that she had my back. I would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction and I will definitely use her again in the future.

Client
I co-owned property and wanted out. Attorney DiCarlo helped me navigate the Land Court’s partition process resulting in a successful sale. She anticipated all of the pitfalls, each one of which we were able to overcome with her preparation and attention to detail. More importantly, she provided her services with compassion and professionalism and with a full understanding of how to partition real estate.

Thorough, personable, always thinking ahead!
Jennifer handled the sale of property I owned in the Boston area. As an out of state owner, I was at great ease with the level of care and attention she gave to the entire transaction. She was always thinking ahead and giving helpful counsel at each milestone of the transaction. I highly recommend.

Seamless Process
Jennifer is super professional, prompt, and helped make the house sale as easy as possible. It was a daunting process to get the house sold within the month that we had, but Jennifer created full transparency and paperwork that was easy to follow and fill out.

Great experience, really friendly
Jen was so great to work with! She was fast and reliable. Each step of the way was explained to us, and she was very understanding of all our questions. Nothing felt like we were being "dumb" about selling a home. It's not an easy process sometimes :)

Out of this World Representation
To date I have used Jennifer’s services twice. In the purchase of my first condo and now the sale/purchase of my current home! There are no words in the dictionary to express our sincerest and deepest satisfaction with her work. She will be your greatest advocate, confidant and backer. During our current sale for our dream home, I can guarantee because of various issues in the transaction as well as opposing counsel vitriol and viciousness. She handled it all with class, grace and represented her client. “me.” In a positive, thoughtful and vigorous manner. I recommend her services to the fullest. Since my brother also used her in the purchase. I now & have in the past consider her my family atty in these matters.

Articulate and on point!
I found Jennifer to be just what I needed during the sale of my house. She had a solid knowledge of the process, the ability to predict possible issues, and the creativity to begin solving problems before they arose. I recommend her highly. If using her services, you will be well informed and have exactly what you need on your side.

Jennifer was professional, efficient, and understanding during a very trying time in my life and with the Corvid Virus happening. She was able to complete a home closing and everything that goes along with that with fast precision and professionalism. I would highly recommend Jennifer.

Jen is great!
I was in the process of buying and selling a home and needed a lawyer to draft all the documents. Jen was recommended to be and was spoken very highly of. She worked quickly and was always available to answer any questions I had. Covid-19 had really started to take off during this time and Jen was always reassuring me things would work out, and go smoothly. Sure enough she made it happen with no hiccups!

Professionalism, Excellence, Knowledge and Delivery Raises The Bar For Others
Because we have kids in the same school district, I knew Jen on a personal level and that she was a lawyer. What I didn't know, because I had no frame of reference, is how incredible she is as a legal mind, strategist and courtroom attorney. I had a legal matter with a previous judgement that I believed was settled, yet it came up again. Because I often travel internationally for work, I could not be sure that I would be able to be in court on the assigned date and I needed legal representation. When I reached out, Jen promptly returned my call, thoughtfully listened, gathered information, instilled calm in me and set to work. What she produced was a strategic masterpiece and an inspired work. This was "Plan A" but there was also a "Plan B" and a "Plan C". Jen arrived way before our scheduled time, texted me a quick "check-in" and gave me directions as to where to meet her inside the courthouse before I arrived and had to leave behind my phone. Although we had plans in place, she quickly review and confirmed the plan before the proceedings started. She had the respect of the judge, clerk and all courthouse officials. Things could not have gone better and because of her strategy, preparation and professionalism, the matter was resolved in a favorable way expeditiously. I cannot say enough about my experience or about Jen on a personal or professional level. I recommend her to anyone without hesitation. Thank you Jen for who you are and what you do! You are excellence personified!

Made the Purchase & Sale Process of our Home a Seamless One
We hired Jen to help with the sale of our home and from day one we felt in good hands. She was on top of everything, super responsive and patient with us when we needed some things explained in more detail. We would hire Jen again in a heartbeat and, in fact, we are already in talks with her to help my husband and I create Wills which we've been putting off for a while now.

Amazing Closing Attorney
I am a colleague of Jennifer's and a happy client. She did my closing in 2017 and went above and beyond. She was helpful throughout the process, noticing every error and typo and fixing them. We were on a tight time line and she made it work putting in extra hours. She even went to the home the day of the closing as there were some issues with walk through cleaning so she went to make sure, in person, that it was done as promised. She then continued to help me with all of my questions after closing and was more than generous with her time and expertise. I will certainly use her again and highly recommend her for anyone buying a home.

Excellent
Jennifer was our attorney when we sold our home. She is detail oriented and knowledgeable. There is so much “paperwork” involved in the sale of a home, and it was great to have her expertise.
