"Alex was professional and was very knowledgeable in every aspect. She was right on top of things. She was familiar with all aspects of a home sale and the documentation that went with it. She was always available and had quick responses to questions. She is the most professional person that I have worked with.
I work at a hospital in direct patient care. If I had to rate The Alex and Elena Team, I would rate them in the realestate world as "BEST Realestate Experience" in all aspects of home sales.
The Alex and Elena Team is the best team you have working for your company. Elena was very professional and knowledgeable of the industry. The two together make a robust team. I would rate them both with my highest recommendation. We appreciate all the support these ladies provided to our family.
It was truly a pleasure working with this team. You should be proud as a company to have them on your Northrup team."

3 cheers for Team Alex & Elena!!!

Dear Mr. Tisei,
We would like to thank you and your staff for all your assistance with the recent sale of our beloved antique home at 281 Chestnut Street in Lynnfield. We cannot say enough how fortunate we were to have the "Alex and Elena Team" to help us! They were at all times caring, kind and absolutely professional throughout the entire home sale experience! They were helpful, knowledgable and sensitive to the nature of the property and always made themselves available when we had questions or needed assistance. We wanted you to know how pleased and happy we are to have been able to work with these two wonderful ladies!
They really made the difference for us in the kind of experience we had selling our home!
Howard and Mary Ellen Whitehead

Your sound advice and caring attitude were tremendously helpful during the entire process in bringing about the successful outcome. Thank you for your patience and kindness and attention to detail always.

To Whom it May Concern:
I am writing this letter today to express my deepest gratitude for two Northrup Realty employees. Last Spring we decided to list our house for sale on the market knowing full well that the market was tough. With guidance and support from Alex DeRosa and Elena Drislane, our house sold in 4 days! We Alex and Elena were amazing in advocating for us through our sale, but also in the purchase of a new home. The road was bumpy, but we got through both transactions on top! Not only did we get expert advice from Alex and Elena, but we also got such a huge amount of emotional support. Selling and buying can be a very emotional thing especially if things don’t go like clock work all the time! We felt like with them on our side we would be okay and we were! We sold our home last summer and bought an amazing home for our family that suits our needs perfectly! We couldn’t be happier! Thank you to Northrup, but a special thanks to Alex and Elena!
--Melissa & Sean Hubacz
Thank you both so much for all your hard work and for answering all of our many questions. Both of you were great to work with and Northrup is luck to have such great people like you.
Thank you again,
--Melanee & Dan Collins
Over 21 years of marriage we have bought and sold 6 homes. In both good and bad home market times. But, there has never been a housing market crisis like this that we have experienced before.
They say all you need is one buyer. But, in these times it takes a Realtor with the edge to get the sale. It takes what Alex DeRosa and Elena Drislane have and, it is rare.
They are the “team of the times!”. They not only sold the structure of our “house” but more importantly, the “home” that we loved. They painted the picture of the life that could be had in this house to every home buyer prospective — they shared the stories of our home. They had endless energy and time but as a result of that they had an offer to us within 8 weeks- and closed in 13. Unheard of in this economy but again, they are the “team of the times!”.
They were passionate, dedicated and relentless to find someone that would love that home like we did. And they did it. In fact there were many! But in the end the new homeowners fell in love with it— to us that meant the world. And we knew that Alex and Elena had put their signature on the sale because the buyers were telling us the stories we had told Alex and Elena. To be able to sell the “life of the home” is much more than selling a house. To Alex and Elena it is about making dreams come true in a time when, for too many, it’s just business.
We are grateful to have been recommended to call them. It was the best call we could have ever made.“
--Nancy and Joe Parshley
Being first time home buyers, my fiancee and I were lucky to have such a knowledgeable and professional REALTOR like Alex on our side. Through her tireless assistance and friendly demeanor, she made the stressful and confusing home buying process as easy as possible. Whether it was answering our barrage of questions at random hours, or finding us a terrific mortgage specialist, Alex had the solution. She accommodated our busy schedules, and taught us how to truly evaluate a home. With Alex, nothing was ever overlooked. When the time comes to sell our home or purchase a new one, we know who our realtor will be! Thanks Alex!
--Rich Larson and Lisa Baillargeon
Just a quick note of thanks for all your help with the sale & purchase of our homes. You & Elena make quite the team!

I will recommend you and Northrup highly when I hear of anyone planning to sell their home!
