Melrose is a charming community located seven miles north of Boston.
Long known for its very active civic life and cultural activities, this small city is filled with small town atmosphere.
Melrose has a strong school system and an appealing downtown with Victorian Flair. Many community events are held at The Soldiers and Sailors Memorial building including well attended concerts by the Melrose Symphony Orchestra. There are plenty of recreational opportunities including two golf courses, Pine Banks Park and Morelli field.
There are three stops located in Melrose on the commuter rail line to Boston as well as bus service.
A city of homes, Melrose is predominantly residential. While there are a wide range of housing styles available, Melrose is primarily known for its exquisite Victorian homes dating from the late 1900's. Explore Melrose real estate with Northrup Associates.

We had a bad experience with a realtor before we called Northrup and had really lost faith in the profession. However once you took over you proved that there are good people in that business and showed us how a real professional does the job.
Not only did you sell our house, you helped us through the transition. It was a very emotional time for us since the house meant so much to us, and you helped us over the hurdles. Your kindness and hard work have not been forgotten.

We made the right decision when choosing Northrup Associates….. when buying a new home & selling our home in Lynnfield. Their experience really showed through in making the process seamless from start to finish
Sincerely, Alfred and Suzanne Hook
My wife and I used a Realtor other than Northrup to sell our home and quickly discovered that it was the wrong choice. Unfortunately we were under contract and had to live through our decision.……. We were very pleased working with….Northrup and we would use them again without hesitation

I am a veteran of the Board of Selectman and I am friendly with every real estate broker in town. The decision to use Northrup Associates was one of the easiest we made. Their reputation in the field and presence in the community were of significant importance
As you know we also sold a house and worked with a different realtor and company for that sale. It was easy to see the difference between an average realtor and a great one. You of course were the great one!
If I were to have a friend or family member in need of a realtor, I would easily refer them to you at Northrup Associates

Generally, the process of moving is most stressful however, ….. the staff at Northrup Realtors exemplified a high level of professionalism in all aspects of the moving process - from the initial decision to sell, the many details involved in marketing the property, to the final closing. All paper work was completed in a timely fashion without stress to us the homeowners
