Kerry Dowlin headshot

Since 2002, Kerry has been among the most trusted REALTORS in the area. She is a natural at matching homes with buyers and genuinely loves her work. With over $300 Million in sales volume and over 600 closed transactions she has fine tuned the ability to navigate a sale. She is highly regarded by industry colleagues as well as those in her beloved Dorchester neighborhood. Known not only for her local expertise, but also for her calm demeanor, ability to listen, cooperative attitude and negotiation skills.


Her philosophy is that the transaction is about each individual client and their goals, not hers. Because of this, she enjoys a loyal client following and the majority of her business comes from past clients and those who have received a personal introduction.


Kerry has a vast knowledge of the diverse neighborhoods within her areas of expertise. This enables her to effectively market a full spectrum of properties across numerous locations as well as find the ideal property for each buyer. Whether working for an investor, first time buyer, seller or builder, nobody works harder to get results for her clients.


With an active civic spirit, Kerry has been involved in several charitable causes, community organizations and sponsorships including HomeStart. She is a proud Veteran, a lover of tequila and mini schnauzers! She and her wife Kim love to travel and enjoy life's adventures.

Thomas has joined the Kerry Dowlin Team here at Leading Edge where he shares their core values of hard work, integrity, commitment, and teamwork to fulfill each of their client’s individual needs. He graduated from Bryant University and has a background in Business Management and Finance. Additionally, he has honed his customer service skills over years in the hospitality industry. Thomas has been an active member of his community in the South Shore for over 20 years and is excited to be turning that community focus toward real estate. With his expertise in the area along with his team member’s expertise in the Greater Boston area, he is ready to assist you with all of your home buying and selling needs, wherever they might be.

Thomas believes that the purchase of a new home or the sale of a beloved residence are some of the most important, exhilarating, and sometimes stressful moments in people’s lives. The positive attitude, attention to detail, strong negotiation skills and calmness that Thomas brings to the table will make the roller coaster that is the real estate transaction, feel more like a walk in the park. Whatever the situation, Thomas and the team are ready to get the job done.

When Thomas is not conducting real estate transactions for his clients, he enjoys spending time with friends and family on the shorelines of Massachusetts, eating out at the great selection of restaurants the south shore has to offer, and customizing and rebuilding cars and spaces. He has a slight obsession with Jeeps and could talk your ear off about their different models and all of the modifications you can do to them. Thomas has that same love of renovation when it comes to homes. He has an eye for interior design and is not afraid to knock down a wall or two to transform a room.
