Adam grew up in Newton MA, attending Newton South High School before earning a B.S. in Economics from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2001. His formal education led to an initial career in the mutual fund investment industry but shortly thereafter he turned the focus of his expertise from securities investments to real estate. Since then Adam has thrived in all facets of residential and commercial sales and leasing.
Specific areas of expertise include buyer and seller broker representation, real estate investing, home renovation consulting, new development marketing, condo conversion, apartment leasing, foreclosures and short sales and all aspects of real estate contract negotiation. Adam is constantly expanding his knowledge in all areas of real estate, an approach that has resulted in his consistently being ranked among the top agents in Massachusetts. In 2010 Adam was named Sales Manager of Metro Realty and in 2017 was appointed as Vice President. In 2020 Adam officially took over the company as President and Principal Broker.
With an eye toward the future, Adam is committed to seeing Metro Realty reach new heights through technology and innovation while offering the same boutique style, industry leading customer service that the company was founded on 40 years ago. When away from the office and not managing the Metro Realty Championship Softball team, Adam enjoys spending quality time with his family in Wayland, coaching and attending his three children’s many sports endeavors, tackling home improvement projects, traveling, skiing and watching movies.
I have used Adam Umina on multiple sales/purchases over the past 5 years. Adam is a straight shooter who tells you what you need to hear. He is very honest and trustworthy, and does not play games.
Adam is very knowledgeable of the buying/selling process and is more than helpful through this process with his clients.
I would recommend Adam to anyone and have full confidence he will get the job done!
I worked with Adam Umina on my recent purchase of a condo in the Boston area. Adam was excellent at finding properties that met my needs and dealing with my very specific criteria (mostly finding a space that satisfied both my needs and the needs of my very spoiled chocolate labrador retriever). Adam was patient throughout the entire process, and despite being in a difficult market for the buyer he was always on top of helping preparing very competitive offers. Adam was always available to view properties with me and it was his persistence in seeing a property a bit early that allowed me to finally find my perfect home. I cannot give Adam Umina a better recommendation. If you are looking for someone who is kind and knowledgeable but also diligent and persistent in finding you the perfect place to call home, Adam is definitely your agent!
Adam is the only agent we have ever worked with. He helped us find our first apartment, buy/sell our first condo, buy/sell our first home, and purchase our current home. Adam is incredibly professional, honest, kind, realistic and most important, he is beyond great at his job. He made the process easy and, despite the stress of buying/selling a home, was able to meet our needs at every point. My wife and I cannot recommend Adam strongly enough.
Adam was knowledgable, accessible, honest, and helpful. We are first time home buyers and he walked us through the process so we felt totally comfortable every step of the way. He always had our best interest in mind and brought to our attention many things we never would have known to ask about. We would absolutely recommend Adam to anyone, and would use him again (but we won't need to because he found us the perfect house!)
Adam is extremely knowlegeable and a refreshingly a straight shooter as a broker. He will go the 'extra mile' on all facets of the selling of buying process.
Thank you guys for your service during this extraordinary time. Debra and I were very concerned with the difficult rental market from the pandemic yet you delivered and in a very timely manner. Forever grateful to the entire staff.
