"Courtney is incredibly knowledgeable about the South Shore market. We were very picky about what we were looking for in a home, and Courtney took the (very long) time to help us find our dream house. Her patience with us, and her resolve to keep searching for that needle in a haystack separated her from other Realtors. Most importantly, we felt we had an edge against other buyers in the market by working with Courtney; previewing houses before they hit MLS. We would highly recommend working with Courtney!" - Michael

"Without Courtney, we never would have found our forever home. Her connections, local insights and expertise allowed us to move fast once we found “the one” and her real estate superpowers enabled us to lock it in seamlessly. Not only did she help guide us through the sale of a new build, but she was our therapist on-call for the entire process and a resolutions-oriented voice of reason when we needed her the most. We cannot recommend her enough for your South Shore home search and purchase (and have to anyone who has asked!) and know you’ll feel the same when she helps you secure the dream home you’ve been looking for!" - Sara

"The BEST decision we made throughout our home buying journey was choosing to work with Courtney Durkin! From the moment we expressed interest in moving to the South Shore, Courtney helped guide our search and stood with us every step of the way. Having been new to the area, Courtney took her time to show us a variety of homes and help our family find the perfect location to put down our roots. Not only did Courtney demonstrate professionalism, strong knowledge of the market, and unwavering responsiveness, but she always had our family’s best interest at heart. We put total trust in Courtney and she faithfully steered us through the process. Thanks to Courtney, we found our dream home in Cohasset and we couldn’t be happier!" - Brianne

"Courtney was a tremendous help to us in our accelerated move to Scituate! It was July and we decided last minute to relocate before the next school year was to start in September. It was a bit insane but Courtney kept her wits about her and helped us every step of the way. We fell in love with the first house we saw and Courtney was able to quickly identify key points about the location and confirm that this ticked all of our boxes. We knew nothing about the area (except that it was gorgeous and friendly!) and she filled in all of the blanks for us. We are walking distance to our school, town and the beach! She was also able to magically negotiate our deal including a contingency on the sale of our other home without a kick-out clause - not an easy thing to do. She stayed connected with our realtor on the sales end and passed information onto the Scituate sellers agent every step of the way to keep the wheels turning. She genuinely wanted to see us in this place we love and it showed in her efforts. To say it was crazy - selling one home and buying another in about 6 weeks...with 3 small kids - is an understatement. Without Courtney's complete support we never would have been able to get it done. Additionally she provided recommendations on everything local from hair salons to grocery stores to kids activities - she know the South Shore inside and out. We are now living our dream by the beach and have Courtney to thank for it! Highly recommend!" - Kristi

"I would recommend Courtney to anyone looking to relocate to the South Shore. Her knowledge of the area is second to none, she is professional, responsive and listened to our wish list from start to finish. She negotiated a great price on a home that is perfect for our family. We are grateful to have worked with her and would again!" - Jansen

"Courtney is extremely knowledge about the real estate market in the South Shore and also very professional in her demeanor. She sold our house for asking price within a matter of days and found my husband and I our dream house. We couldn't be happier! I would highly recommend Courtney Durkin and her team when buying or selling a property." - Pamela

"Courtney was so pleasant to work with! She knows the area extremely well and understands the needs of her clients very quickly, which made it efficient when showing us houses. She was extremely responsive and truly made us feel like we were her only clients at the time. We would definitely recommend Courtney and her team to others!" - Stephanie

"Real talk: we would not have gotten our house if it weren’t for Courtney Durkin being our realtor. She is a savvy veteran with a great feel for the market, a whole lot of hustle, and a strategic mind. I mean, she got the sellers to agree to cancel an entire day of open house in order to accept our offer early. She’s a shrewd negotiator and is always gonna be the person to put you in the best position possible. Tell her what your dreams are, and she’ll make them come true for you. Ours was a tricky search with a long checklist, and to make things harder: it was all done remotely while we were in NYC. Courtney dropped everything to show us houses we found, and most of the time she was presenting us with options before they even hit the real estate apps/websites. And that’s not it. She stays helpful throughout every step of the process and after. She has a great network of “helpers” when you do find your house and need to secure financing/insurance/etc etc." - Gregory

"Having lived away from my hometown for years, I knew we needed someone we could both trust and who understood the market to find us our forever home. Courtney’s incredible knowledge of the local community and access to resources made the house hunting process less stressful and actually, enjoyable! When we stepped through the threshold of one, in particular, we knew (and so did she). She went above and beyond to make the process seamless and ensure that we were in good hands- especially from the other side of the country! We could not be happier with our new home, nor more grateful for Courtney helping us get here." - Christen

"Courtney had deep knowledge of the existing market that enabled us to find the homes that met our criteria and personality. She was extremely responsiveness and it felt like we were her only customer during our house search."
