How we treat every listing like a luxury listing
Mike was raised in Braintree, MA in a real estate family and with an appreciation for drawing, creating, and building, leading him to the field of architecture and design.
After studying architecture and working in the landscape design industry for years, Mike has combined his passion for creating spaces for people with his love of building personal relationships by diving into the family business of real estate and teaming up with his brother, Nick Rivers, at Compass.
I recently just closed on a very complicated deal that took months to get everything in order. Nick was there every step of the way getting stuff done. He definitely went above and beyond, including going to bat for me on many different occasions. I honestly don't think I could have closed on this deal without the help and support that I got from Nick. From day one it was clear to me that Nick knew this business inside and out, much more so than other realtors I have dealt with in the past, and that he would do everything he could to make sure his clients got the best deal possible. I would definitely recommend Nick to anyone looking to buy a house ...— Buyer
Nick helped me purchase the home of my dreams, after searching for nearly 12 months! I began working with Nick after I had a not-so-great experience with another realtor. Immediately, Nick started following up with me on a regular basis with condos that he felt would be a good fit, as well as gently encouraging me to explore areas a little outside of my comfort zone, which is actually where I ended up buying! His negotiating tactics are top-notch and I was able to make a strong offer that was accepted by the sellers, despite having multiple other offers on the same property. I plan to work with Nick if or when I ever decide to sell my current property.— Amjoda
What can I say about Mike? He was a joy to work with! I am confident in recommending him to anyone I know, whether a simple rental move across town or a more substantial move into a new house in a new area. I was looking to move to Boston, In November 2020, In the middle of a pandemic, and within a price point that was perhaps, shall we 11 say, less than ideal. Throughout it, all and I had some moments! Mike remained professionals, optimistic, and encouraging. I found the place that works for me and honestly, given how the rental market has changed so dramatically in Boston, I could not have done it without him.— Karen B,
In a very competitive market, it was so important to us that Nick was always readily available. At the drop of a dime, he would meet us at a home viewing and give us sound advice when it came to bidding in a competitive situation. We are very type-A people and he matched us, if not exceeded us in efficiency and quickness. I think it was through him, and his team of brokers, attorneys, etc., that gave us, as first-time home buyers, the tools to buy in one of the best neighborhoods in Braintree. We can't thank Nick enough for his efforts and availability.— Buyer
I would highly recommend Nick as an agent to anyone in search of buying a new home or selling their existing home. Nick helped me and my wife buy our first home in Boston, Nick was instrumental in negotiating during the offer period and always supported our decisions throughout the process. Nick continued to be helping force throughout the P and S process and closing, ensuring that any fine details were disclosed and addressed prior to the final closing. Overall I give Nick 5 stars for his help and guidance during our purchasing of a new home.— Buyer
Thinking about selling a house I built and had been living in for over 20 years was fairly stressful. Nick immediately came in and made me feel at ease. He took control of the situation and moved at a pace that made me comfortable. I’m not a technology guy and nick had no problem meeting with me in person throughout the transaction. He sold it after the first open house for more than I was asking for. Nick is a personable, intelligent guy and very good at what he does.— Jim R.
We contracted with nick to sell two apartment buildings in s.Boston. It’s obvious that Nick is a realtor that loves his job. His knowledge of the real estate market is impressive. He was always accessible and responsive. He communicated with us frequently throughout the process. And the best thing about him is he kept us calm through a stressful time. Loved working with him. He’s a trustworthy broker that I would recommend to anyone. He’s the best. Thank you, Nick!— Seller
We had a great experience working with Nick over the last few months. He was professional, knowledgeable, and committed to helping us in our search. Nick helped us find our home quickly and the process was seamless. We wanted to make an offer quickly and Nick was able to help secure the offer and the deal while out of state. I would highly recommend his services especially if your search is in the Boston, Greater Boston, and South Shore areas.— Buyer
Nick helped me buy my first house! Couldn't say better things. I looked at multiple houses before putting in an offer. Nick was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what to look for when we were touring the house. He came to each house well prepared and was always available to see a house on the weekends or after working hours. I will be using nick in the future and referring him to anyone that is in need of a knowledgeable, local realtor.— Buyer
From the moment I began speaking with Nick about selling my home, I was impressed with his market knowledge, insight, and professionalism. It was evident that nick was well prepared throughout the entire process and I could not be happier with the end result. Nick sold my house in 2 days for over asking price! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. Looking forward to working with him again in the future!— Seller
Nick is the person you want to help to buy your new home. He is attentive to detail and made sure my husband and I were happy with our search.

He was always going out of his way to show us home as soon as he could. He is the best and we highly recommend him!— Mary K.
I’ve sold three homes in my life two before I met Mr. Rivers and one with him. Nick’s loyalty to his clients and tireless service is something I had never experienced before. I was dealing with the loss of a family member and it was a very stressful time for me. Nick and his team took care of everything I needed. They were truly incredible and I was blown away by how caring and efficient they were.— Jonathan B.
Nick was a true professional that became a trusted ally and friend throughout the entire process. He sold my home in 2 days over the asking price and fought hard for me during negotiations.

We will be using Nick for all of our real estate needs! Nick made the process of selling and buying easy. He cared about what my family was looking for, and put our goals above everything else.

Nick Rivers worked with me for years prior to acquiring the right financing and finding the perfect home. Even after he helped me buy, he has continued to be a resource with everything from choosing a color of paint to finding a local plumber. I would highly recommend him to anyone.— Buyer

We loved working with Nick and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in the South Shore or Boston area!— Amie G.
Nick and his team were so great!! We had one agent prior to Nick and when they failed to get us a showing we switched over to Nick, immediately we could tell that he was going to do a better job for us. Nick and the team were very persistent and available showing us multiple listings and setting up showings for anything that popped up. Nick got us into our house with his quick work to set up both the viewing the day after it went on the market and set up the offer the day after we saw the house. We can't say thank you enough for helping us navigate this cutthroat real estate market in Massachusetts!!!— Kyle S.
Generally, I handle my own rentals however I decided to hand it over to someone else! I’m so glad I did, Mike was fantastic!

I highly recommend Mike both as an individual and realtor.— Jean F.
