"From listing to closing, working with Katie and Meg was the best experience my husband and I have ever had selling a house! Their knowledge of the North Shore and its market, attention to detail, 24/7 accessibility, and understanding of and empathy for the stress of selling a house and everything that process entails are truly exceptional. Both Katie and Meg possess strong interpersonal and organizational skills, and they us kept us well informed from start to finish. What a great partnership to have working on our behalf!" - LINDA & RICHARD K.
"Meg and Katie are terrific! Their expert marketing abilities brought a great number of potential buyers to our home. Their tradesmen contacts helped prepare our home for sale. Their consultant was available for decoration and staging. They were readily available when questions arose with advice and reassurance. The experience was similar to having friends in a profession to provide a service. I have recommended them to friends."
"They were the absolute best! Not only did they get an offer two days after listing the property, they helped us with every detail of the inspection, repairs and closing. It was seamless and one of the best real estate experiences we have ever had. Highly recommend this professional and caring team!"
"Very professional; always available; & great ideas & helpful hints! Awesome job!"
"Meg and Katie were fantastic to work with for both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. The insight they provided in helping us to sell our home was invaluable and made the process considerably less stressful and their market knowledge helped us make the right financial and timing decisions on the purchase of our new home. Maybe most importantly, they were both responsive to our questions and concerns and available at a moment’s notice to answer any questions or respond to an issue. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area." - GREG & RYAN B.
