Exemplifying hard work, charisma, and a true passion for business, Greg Somar is no ordinary real estate agent. He is a 10-year industry veteran who has closed 100 transactions valued at $20 million plus—and whose success allowed him to purchase his own two-unit multifamily property at just 35 years old. Greg joined Great Spaces ERA in October 2020 and brought with him eight years of unique insight into the entire process—from construction to closing—gained from his prior career as a sales agent for a developer. Based in Boston, Great Spaces ERA is known as one of the most respected real estate agencies in the city, ranked in the top 5% for transaction volume since 2017. From the agency’s first Distinctive Properties office in the Savin Hill neighborhood of Dorchester, Greg specializes in working with home buyers and sellers throughout the Dorchester, Roxbury, Hyde Park, and Roslindale areas. “I’m such a people person, and I truly enjoy working with my clients and building relationships, so they’ve stuck with me through the years and they keep coming back,” says Greg.
Greg’s uncommon expertise and his genuine affinity for his clients show throughout every step of the experience, from touching base with his clients continuously through the process to celebrating with them at the closing. For home buyers, his mission is to ensure he finds a house that fits their unique tastes and needs as well as their budgets. He draws on his insight from his career with a developer to help them envision changes, whether removing a wall or modifying the lighting. For sellers, he makes sure everything is done in the house for a viewing—from staging to decluttering to photos. “I love spending a whole day at a house getting them ready. In doing so, I’m helping my clients get more money for their house. I got one of my clients double what they paid for it originally,” Greg shares. At the closing table, for both his buyers and sellers, Greg includes one last special touch: he presents them with a gift, such as a nice bottle of wine or champagne, to celebrate the next stages of their lives.
With all the time and effort Greg puts into relationship building, it comes as no surprise that he has an ever-growing number of referrals and repeat customers. “Many of the clients I’ve sold to in the past have asked for my help to sell or rent their homes because they now have families and need to upgrade. Those are the best compliments I could ever receive—clients sticking with me through the years and continuing to come back,” he says.
In addition to the support of his clients, Greg attributes much of his success to the developer who gave him his start in the industry. “He trained me to be an effective and efficient real estate agent—from filing paperwork with the city to staging a house—and my clients continue to benefit from that skillset today.”
