    Massachusetts Survey Consultants, LLC
    In a word -- great! Our renovation was being held up by our Building Department, which wouldn't grant the permit without a plot plan. Whereas the other ~10 surveyors I contacted told me they were scheduling anywhere from 4-8 weeks out, Tom was able to come to the property within three days of my initial call, and we had the stamped plot plan in hand within one week. I will say that while he felt he was very competitively priced, we found several others who priced the same services for several hundred dollars less. But these were the same guys who said 4-8 weeks, so the price difference was worth it. Tom was very easy to work with, also.

    Edward J Farrell Surveyor
    Ed was extremely responsive and got my plan done when he promised and helped out with last minute needs. He was very clear about what he could and could not do up front. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.

    The city had limited documentation on the house and lot and the markers were completely buried. At first, Mike said it might be better for me to go with someone who was more familiar with the neighborhood. I appreciated his honesty. After other more local surveyors gave me outlandish estimates, I called Mike back and provided some addition info from the city and asked if he would reconsider. He did and came out again, dug for the boundary markers and was able to survey the lot and provide boundary markers for fencing and a plot for the architect to work from. I greatly appreciated his honesty and perseverance in helping me get a survey at a reasonable price! He was also very timely, responding to my calls right away and providing a survey within a few days. I highly recommend Mike as a surveyor!

    Horrible! Frank Iebba the owner did come to survey and did give us the initial printed survey. BUT, when we called he 5 or 6 times over the course of 3 weeks for the final paperwork needed for the permit he never returned our calls. We emailed him 3 times and text him. Even our contractor called him but never received a call back. We wasted 4 weeks and $800.00. We were forced to start over with a new surveyor who was able to complete the job and paperwork within 5 business days

    Dealing with Mike was a pleasure. He returned my call right away and started working on our plan the next day. Within a week of my initial call we had our plan for the building department.

    Mike was professional, showed up exactly when he said he was going to, and did exactly what we were looking for. He was knowlegeable and explained the process to us along the way. He was also able to give me a recomendation for an architect to use for our bathroom project.

    His prices seemed less expensive then some other surveyors listed on Angies List. His plans are hand drawn and stamped, and he gave us our copy when he finished his work. If I have other surveying needs in the future, I'd be happy to call on him again.

    First I had a great conversation with Amy in the office late in the afternoon.  Mike called me back the next day and arranged to come to my house the following day.  We met at the house and he measured and marked my property lines.  Mike was friendly, efficient, competent and a pleasure to work with.  His price is extremely reasonable and his work is thorough.  I would absolutely use Mike's services again.

    John Abagis was a very helpful surveyor.  He responded in a timely manner.  He scheduled us for a survey right away.  But the more important factors were the "little things".  He gave us numerous certified copies of our plot.  Later, we needed additional work done on the survey. He gave us good advice on how to get  the work done in the most cost-effective way.  I highly recommend his services.

    Based on our reviews, we only called John and he was prompt in getting back to us about surveying our property to prepare for a new fence.  It was very staightforward and painless.  We agreed upon a date about three weeks out from the time we inquired, and John showed up on time to stake out the property.  He walked the property with us and answered questions that we had about our property lines.  We didn't call anyone else to check prices, but based on what we saw on Angie's List, what we spent seemed fair.

    I called several surveyors Friday afternoon to ask for quotes for a plot plan and abutters list as required by my local zoning board. Mike called me back Friday evening to ask questions about what the job entailed, and was in the town hall first thing Monday morning to ask questions. Monday midday, he called me and asked to meet at the new house, where he handed me a plot plan and a bill for $850. I was floored; I was expecting to be getting a quote, and didn't know how to say no. I was also confused, since I was expecting more than one plan; he said he'd been to Town Hall and this was all they wanted. (He also asked me if I was a Christian while we were discussing the bill, and gave me a pamphlet when I said no; it isn't clear whether the answer affected my bill or his behavior.) I didn't have a checkbook with me, since I hadn't been expecting any bills that day. Mike didn't take credit cards, and wouldn't let me send a check to him in the mail (he said he didn't have any reliable way to receive them). He insisted on *following me back to my bank*, even after I tried to put him off by saying it was 20 minutes away by car. For context, he's middle-aged, has a Marines sticker on his truck, and knew where I would be living; I'm young, small, and female. The experience was terrifying, and I didn't feel safe in my car for a month afterwords. After getting to my bank/office, he then told me that he'd really prefer to get his payment in cash. (I noticed later that he'd never actually given me a bill; what he handed me was a *receipt*, with "Paid" already marked on it.) I was sketched out, nearly called security on him, and ended up getting a bank check for him. As soon as he left and I no longer felt physically threatened, I called town hall. What he'd given me was *not* what they needed. Apparently he refused to believe the law office clerk, or just couldn't understand what I thought was a very clear explanation. I canceled the bank check and left a message for Mike explaining the problem. The next day, he went back to city hall and put together the abutter's plot and list; the new bill was $1100. I did end up paying, after getting a tentative approval from the building department. (Identical proselytizing pamphlets to the one he'd given me had been left around the Building Department that morning.) When I finally went to put the zoning board appeal through, however, I had to get an additional approval from three different departments, because nobody quite believed that the abutters plans were professional enough to accept. (The 300 foot plan was a dotted line in orange marker on a map printed from the town website. "You could have done this yourself! Did you pay for this?" -- Assessor's.) The only reason that they even tentatively approved them was because my appeal was for a very small matter with minimal likely impact. The appeal is not likely to go through for unrelated reasons, but this was a nightmare experience. I do NOT recommend using him.

    THOMAS CORCORAN & ASSOCIATES
    Summer 2006: Asked for certified plot plan with clearly defined boundary markers. Needed to determine if retaining wall was on property. Wanted to work with a local company familiar with city regulations. Much telephone tag. Company finally showed up (without prior notice) in October 2006. Had to ask several times for representative to come to site to show us property lines and markings. Company had spray-painted rocks on two corners--no permanent markers. Had to remind company that retaining wall location was a question -- representatives had to re-survey property to ascertain location of retaining wall in relation to property line. Company assured us that they would come and stake property line when needed. Starting in August 2007 (through September) we called 6 times and used their online form - the 2 times when someone answered the phone we were assured that someone was working on "a proposal." We finally gave up. Very disappointing. We cannot recommend this company. Est cost-$2500
