About 617 Living

617 Living is a collaboration by Nicole Blanchard and Daniel O’Leary. As friends and colleagues since 2011, they specialize in home sales and apartment rentals in the Boston real estate market. With extensive backgrounds in sales, customer service and hospitality, the team is built on the core values of ambition and integrity. 617 Living strives to deliver a seamless experience to their clients offering not only real estate — but a lifestyle.

Since 2015, 617 Living has been the top producing luxury rental team in the State of Massachusetts, representing portfolio sized Developers. The team has carved a unique niche within Greater Boston known for representing new construction properties and conducting all aspects; coordinating everything from branding, identity, positioning, digital experiences, signage and advertising — while still maintaining high-volume with record breaking urgency and attention to detail throughout the project with uncompromising, strict ethics. The team’s combined knowledge with proven strategies make them Boston’s leading choice for Developer representation and have also successfully sold many portfolios off-market at some of the top prices per square foot in those neighborhoods.

While Developer representation has been the foundation of the Team’s business model, they also represent Buyer, Seller, Builder and Investor clients throughout Greater Boston, Metro West, and North Shore areas.

Nicole has worked in Boston real estate since obtaining her license but over the years so developed a deep understanding of the custom, single-family home construction process after being involved in several projects with her partner. She has experience with buildable lots and is passionate about advising clients who have goals to build a custom, from-scratch home.

Daniel grew up with real estate; his father owned a successful construction company on the North Shore of Boston. Daniel, with a hospitality background, provides a white glove style experience to all of his clients.

“The focus on our reputation and our relationships has resulted in our Referral Network being one of the Team’s greatest achievements. We are so proud our consistency has been recognized and valued, and it’s allowed us as many opportunities thus far. We look forward to many more.” — 617 Living
