Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
To Whom it May Concern:
My boyfriend Jason Copp and I just bought our first home together through Northrup Associates, and it wouldn't have been possible without Elena Drislane and Alex DeRosa. Elena, thank you for being such a great agent and friend. Jay and I look forward to having you over to our new home!
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 took their advice in prepping our home and listing it at the right price!
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!

Thank you again,

Thank you! Thank you! I owe you two big thank you's one for 36 Rossmore and one for 57 Fairview. Thank you for helping us sell and buy our homes. Your calm and steady guidance was invaluable, we could not and would not have been able to do it without you! We trusted every decision! You made the arduous task much more manageable.
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, knowledgeable 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
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.“

We met Eric as my wife and I are looking into a condo that he was showing in Danvers. At that time we didn't have an agent and were unsure whether or not we still wanted to have one. In the end we were glad we chose him. He was always on time, would give us feedback about a house we looked at in a viewing. He also writes notes about the property. In the end we got the house we wanted at a very reasonable price. Thanks Eric!
Eric was our REALTOR as we both sold one property and bought another property. We will be highly recommending him to friends and co-workers. Eric was on top of issues from the beginning in all aspects of buying and selling our properties. His phrase "I'm on it" really expresses how diligent he was during our challenging winter this year. Eric is pro-active in his personal knowledge of the area and in using his very personable negotiating skills.
Eric Doherty is exactly what you want in a realtor. For us, he was always a friend first, and a realtor second. Every step of the way Eric never pressured us, understood our concerns, bared with us as we changed our minds over and over again. Beyond his friendly demeanor, Eric is a real expert on home ownership. As first-time buyers, there were many unknowns for us when it came to repairs, do-it-yourself projects, etc. and Eric was able to point things out to us that we would never see on our own. By the time we found the house that we purchased, we had a much better idea of what we'd need to do because of all the hands-on homeowner's training that Eric basically put us through with every other house we saw. Eric understood that we didn't want to buy a house that required a lot of work, but he helped us see that we needed to buy a house that we could grow into over a longer time period. Eric understood our unique situation and helped us find the perfect place basically within a few weeks after we really started searching. Although Eric was a perfect partner for the house search process, he was an even bigger help after our offer was accepted. There were nearly a dozen little things that we didn't love to find out during the inspection, nothing that would break the sale, but new things that we now realized we'd have to deal with. Eric skillfully negotiated with the listing agent to get the seller to take care of every item on the list, things that the seller was under no obligation to do. This made the move-in process even easier as now there was very little for us to do other than buy new furniture and add our own touches to a perfect home. Eric also had great connections to other services, including our bank and inspector. Eric made it very easy for us and by the end we had a solid team all working on behalf of us. It all started with Eric though, and without him guiding us throughout the process we wouldn't be where we are today -- in a perfect house for the first time!

Eric has helped us with three straight transactions – the selling of condos in Reading and Malden, and the purchase of a townhouse in Wakefield. Throughout this whole year, he’s been very enthusiastic, extremely positive, knowledgeable of the local towns/cities we were looking at - and thorough. He has always kept us informed and has made what can be a stressful process - easy and smooth. I would absolutely recommend him to others
