Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"We'd like to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation for the work and time Kathy Dagle put into helping us find and purchase a home. We were shopping in a high-end market to keep our children in the same school system we had been in while renting, but we didn't have a high end budget. While she knew we were on a tight budget, she also knew it was a tight market. She found homes that would meet our needs or could easily be adjusted, and never took us anywhere that wasn't within our guidelines. Kathy kept us updated on price changes almost before they happened. She was also extremely honest and let us know if she thought a house wasn't worth what it was listed for, even when it meant she would make less of a commission.
Without her encouragement, perseverance and knowledge of real estate, we would not have found our forever home. Kathy noticed a house that had come down in price but was still a little out of our budget. With her hard work and persistence, we were able to get the sellers to agree on a lower price. Now we live in our beautiful little house in the woods, only minutes from the beach.
We would also like to include that Kathy is always very professional, she has a warm and compassionate side to her that makes the clients feel like she truly cares about and understands them and their family. She takes the time to listen and she always helps wherever she can.
This was move number 4 for three of the four of use in as many years. It was the second move in 5 months. Needless to say, the stress level was exceedingly high and emotions were roaring. Kathy was always there with reminders, explanations, offers to call the mortgage company and real estate lawyer if we didn't have time, and again, just there to listen. We are absolutely 1,000% happy with our experience and HIGHLY recommend Kathy to other families."

"This was our second time around working with Kathy. The first time was during the summer of 2015. We had planned to put our Byfield house up for sale after living there for 25 years. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer and had a "total hysterectomy" which sidelined me for months, and at the same time, my husband was diagnosed with Lyme disease When it rains...it pours. After about 8 weeks, Mark and I were back in the saddle again and were preparing our house for sale. My memory is hazy but I think we met Kathy before my surgery or right after. We went to an open house in Ipswich, I believe. I loved the way she came across. Confident, but not overbearing, knowledgeable, and superfast at getting back to us, so we hired her to be our real estate agent. She sold our house and helped us buy our new house in Peabody.
Fast forward almost 5 years and I was retiring and wanted to put my money that I've earned through my 401K and other retirement accounts towards a down payment on a property in Bradford, MA. I called Kathy again for her help. And again, I had surgery (a brain tumor) that set me back about 2 months. Unbelievable! Anyway, Kathy handles anything that needs to be done in an efficient and professional manner but she also has compassion. Buying or selling a house is a stressful process and it is not always a smooth road, but we felt safe with her to explain situations in a language that is understandable, and we were sure she would do her best to get the property we desired.
We're also impressed with the real estate lawyer, Judy Field, and Joe Long (Mortgage Network). We had Judy as our real estate lawyer back in 2015."

"Betty was a true professional. She was so helpful in preparing our home and knew which projects we should and shouldn't tackle. And it worked! She was a great negotiator and gave us great advice. When we were looking for our new home, she was tireless. We looked at quite a few frogs, before finding a soft spot to land. Her patience and professionalism was top notch."
Jess - Salisbury, MA
"Listing your property is terrifying! Aalin kept us calm and explained things every step of the way. She knew what to expect ahead of time, which was very reassuring. Her thoughtful and practical advice was so helpful when we went looking for a new home. She was as excited as we were when we found the right place! I am so thankful for her help."

"Toni was an amazing realtor. It was our first house and she was there for us the whole time. It was a difficult time as a home buyer, but she was there for us and fought for us through the whole process."
Kelsey A. & Nicholas T. - Georgetown, MA
"Aalin, words cannot express how thankful we are for everything you have done for us. From all of the countless hours you put into the sale of our house and purchase of our new home, we are forever grateful. I loved working with you because you are my friend but you were also so professional, honest and trustworthy. You guided us along through every step of the way and made it a breeze. Thank you for being so organized and keeping us right on track. It was such a smooth process and pleasure to work with you. Looking forward to doing this again in a few years! Dan and Ava are still waiting for their farm!!! I'm still in shock we made this happen during a pandemic and this crazy market! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"

"Denise was especially good at following up with the developer and town of Swampscott with question, concerns. She also helped us narrow our search to recently built or renovated houses."
