My name is Shawn Sullivan and I’m a REALTOR®/Broker Associate with RE/MAX Andrew Realty Services of Medford and Stoneham. I was born and brought up in Somerville, I'm a lifelong resident of the Boston North area and I have spent more than half my life immersed in the real estate industry.
My passion for the real estate business began when I purchased my first piece of raw land and began developing multi-family homes. Shortly afterwards, I obtained my construction supervisor’s license and went on to launch a successful real estate trust firm that specialized in residential development opportunities. The transition to traditional residential and commercial real estate sales 15 years ago was a natural one for me, and when I joined RE/MAX Andrew Realty Services, I brought with me all of my industry acumen along with a strong work ethic and a genuine desire to help buyers, sellers and developers achieve their real estate goals in Massachusetts.
Over the years, I’ve worked with hundreds of property buyers and sellers as well as some of the leading Massachusetts developers. In the process, I have been able to build a solid and tested network of industry professionals – mortgage lenders, bankers, attorneys, service people, etc. – all of whom stand ready to fulfill the varied needs of my clients.
In 2015, to meet the needs of my growing client base, I created The Shawn Sullivan Team, which is recognized today as one of the top producing teams of industry experts in the area. Together, we are a team of experienced REALTORS® committed to personalized client attention and overall service excellence. Additionally, through RE/MAX Andrew Realty Services and the RE/MAX Franchise, we are able to assist those looking to buy or sell properties anywhere in the U.S. and 90 other countries and territories.
The Shawn Sullivan team is fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish. We look forward to speaking to you today about your real estate needs!
As first time home buyers, we are very happy at our new home as a result of the excellent work done by Shawn. Shawn is very professional in what he do. During our search, we noticed that our interest and satisfaction were Shawn's top priority. Shawn was very much involved in the process and above all very knowledgeable. In addition, Shawn introduced us a very honest Mortgage Banker who's performance was also excellent. Shawn is very sincere and committed to his clients. We strongly recommend Shawn.Thomas Opoku and Grace Mensah, Medford, MA
We relocated out of state the same week that our house went on the market. Because we had moved, we weren't physically present for much of the selling process. Shawn not only kept us informed, but he truly looked after our house as if it was his own. During an extremely cold period, Shawn made sure that our boiler had water and that our pipes didn't freeze, stopping by our house often to make sure everything was okay - that is just one of many examples of Shawn's dedication.
After being on the market for three weeks, we received an offer. Shawn did a fabulous job negotiating at every step of the way, from the initial offer through the inspection and into the closing. As first time sellers, he made us feel at ease throughout the entire process.
There were so many things that Shawn took care of that ensured our house sold on time, including finding someone to remove a large wooden playscape from our backyard for free. Without Shawn's dedication and willingness to go above and beyond his job deion, we would not have been able to sell our house from a distance.
For these reasons and many more, we would highly recommend Shawn to anyone looking to sell their home.
He took us to see properties that we were interested in that he knew wouldn't be as good as the adverts to give us a flavor of what pricing and ads really look like in person.
When it can time for making offers he was extremely effective at getting us a good deal and negotiating "extras".
You want an effective and honest realtor, he's your man! I recommend him to anyone I know looking to purchase a house.
I highly recommend him and would work with him again in a heart beat.
Shawn has significant experience building homes as well. We were first time buyers, so he was exceptional help when viewing homes, pointing out potential issues with items such as heating, A/C, roofs etc.
When it came to negotiating the final deal Shawn was very good. He negotiated an excellent deal for us and really guided us through the process. We were newbies, so he was supportive but clear and firm with us when he needed to be.
Shawn is heavily connected in the Boston area and put us in contact with a real estate lawyer who also was great to work with and performed excellently for us.
It was awesome to work with you, you really know what we want, and everything went smooth.
Debra and I wanted to thank you for your help in the purchase of our new home.
Thanks to you, we were able to get many concessions from the seller that helped us save thousands of dollars. We will highly recommend you to friends and relatives looking to purchase a home.
I've been in my new home for over two months now and just wanted to take this time to thank you for all the work you did and for your patience and understanding while simultaneously selling my old home and purchasing a new one. For various reasons there were some restrictions on when I could show the home I was selling and also when I could go look at new places which made things more difficult than they should have been but you handled it with grace and humor.
You listened when I told you where I wanted to live and what type of property I wanted and actually you probably knew what I was looking for better than I did. It had been a
A long time since I was involved with a real estate transaction so I had no clue what to do but you were there to guide me through the purchase and sale part of the process. I could never have done any of this without you, it was a pleasure working with you and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to sell, buy or both.
Thank you again,
I have worked with Shawn for over six years - and he has been instrumental is the purchase and subsequent sale of my
Amazing service, you can't go wrong.
Working with Shawn was a great experience. His knowledge of the housing market and the entire home buying process was very helpful to me being a first time home buyer who asked a lot of questions. His local contacts made the purchase\sale and closing very smooth.
To me Shawn has gone above and beyond selling me the house. An example: several days after the close I was moving some furniture and accidentally bumped the supposedly deactivated home security system which went off. I emailed Shawn the next day and he was able to get in contact with the seller to get me the code to turn it off the same day.
"Shawn made sure we had the tools we needed to find exactly what we wanted."

Buying a home for the first time, we had no idea what we really wanted. Shawn helped us figure that out quickly, and then worked very hard to get it for us. We were always able to reach him via phone or email and he was responsive and helpful. We were very pleased with how he negotiated on our behalf, and now we have the perfect home for a price we're extremely happy with! Thanks Shawn!

This is a note to say THANK YOU for helping us with finally closing on the house and being there for Farai and I with so much good and honest advice. I assure you we will be calling you in the next 2 years for our next purchase!
Thanks too for the chocolates! I LOVE CHOCOLATE.

From start to finish, we would describe Shawn's services as outstanding. Shawn's knowledge of the pulse of the market and explanation of what to expect along the way were comforting. He made it known from the beginning that our best interests were not only his most important priority, it was his only priority.
During the home viewings, Shawn displayed a comprehensive knowledge about what adds value to the homes, while always helping us incorporate a potential home into our short term and long term goals. Even after our offer was accepted and our inspection completed, Shawn continued to make his availability known by always willing to explain each step of the process (even when he was not directly involved in the process such as securing our mortgage).
"As a first time home buyer, I was very confused about the buying process and what location I wanted to buy in. Shawn has really helpful. He guided me carefully through the process and helped me find the perfect location and condo! He really listened to me when I explained what I was looking for and he schedule was always flexible. What was also great is that he knew different locations around
Thank you Shawn for everything!!!!
It truly was a pleasure working with you. The most professional customer
service and hardest working team we could have ever found, is nothing short
of what we have experienced with you and your team. Thank you for all the
support you provided us as we made one of the most difficult decisions of
our lives. Jackie and I honestly feel that the sale would not have been
possible if it wasn't for all the hard work and dedication we've
experienced. Thank you for everything...
Our Sincerest Appreciations,

"Shawn was a very knowledgeable and professional agent. He always worked for my best interest. I had a wonderful buying experience and it wouldn’t be the same without him!"
As a home buyer for the third time and dealing with several different real-estate agents, I have finally found an agent that I can honestly say I will use for every home purchase I ever make. Not only was he extremely helpful with educating me on the differences of foreclosed properties, he was honest and forthcoming. This being my first foreclosed purchase, he walked me through every step and educated me on the way. He dealt with every aspect of my purchase with a zeal I have never received from any other agent. If you are looking for an agent to represent you Shawn Sullivan is the man for the job. Shawn you did a great job and I will be back soon to start looking for another rental property. Thanks again for everything you have done.
Thank you Shawn

chuckling over how easy the buying process was. We were first-time
buyers and had been told by family and friends to expect a lot of
angst. Instead, we found our dream house on the first day of looking,
and Shawn made sure we got it for a bargain. He clearly knew his
stuff, which was very reassuring to us, since we were new to the
market. He also assembled a great team for us -- mortgage broker,
inspector, and so on -- and was always ready to answer our questions.
He told us early on that we were in good hands. He was right. The
whole process was unbelievably smooth, and we're delighted with the

When my wife and I were finally ready to buy our first home, we contacted Shawn. From the start of the process to the end, Shawn was terrific. He worked hard to get us a great deal on a townhouse that we loved, in a city that we loved.
Shawn always made himself available to us and kept us informed throughout the process. He took the time to talk with us and find out exactly what it was that we wanted, and then he went above and beyond to make sure that we got it.
My wife and I could not be happier with the results.
If, and when, I find myself in the real estate market again, Shawn is going to be the very first person that I call.

Thank you so much for everything. You were right there one step ahead during the whole process of looking, buying, and the closing. I appreciate all your hard work! I´m sure you saved me a million headaches.
Shawn is clearly dedicated to doing a great job & understands that the overall relationship between buyer and realtor is a long term proposition. I trusted his advice and found him to be honest; straight-forward and actually enjoyable to work with.
In the future - if I buy again or decide to sell - I will certainly reach out to Shawn Sullivan.
Shawn’s knowledge and expertise of housing and development was instrumental and exactly what we needed. The information he provided, for each home we saw, assisted us in making the best educated decision on that home.
He was tireless in our search. (Which took us a year to find!) He never faltered in his commitment to find us the perfect home.
I would, and have, recommended Shawn to several friends and family in search for their perfect home, knowing he would work just as diligently for them as he did for us.
