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.

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!

Just a quick note of thanks for all your help with the sale & purchase of our homes. You & Elena make quite the team! It was an absolute pleasure working with the two of you knowing & trusting that every little detail was being taken care of for us! I will recommend you and Northrup highly when I hear of anyone planning to sell their home!
I am so happy that I met Julie Daigle! She was a great broker. After discussing my wants in a home, she helped me find the home of my dreams! She was always smiling and had a positive attitude!
Good morning Richard,
Last Friday I closed on the townhouse in Ayer, MA. I was much more excited than nervous when it came time to close. This purchase makes a lot of financial sense for me right now. It is more space than an apartment & gives me the chance to put a personal touch on it. Now that I am past the closing I can actually think about the fun aspects like paint colors!
I wanted to thank you for your help during the process. From my initial phone call I felt like you jumped right in and helped guide me. It made the whole process far less daunting.
Julie Daigle is great. Her enthusiasm is infectious and it was truly a pleasure working with her. She went above and beyond giving me guidance and reassurance (and even DIY ideas). The others you pointed me towards were also great. The home inspection went smoothly. Harry and Diane at Mortgage Financial were professional yet friendly and caring. It was a pleasure working with them as well.
Dan told me he trusted you and I certainly see why. I would recommend Julie to my friends and family Thanks again.
We wanted to thank you for all that you did for us! Purchasing a home can be stressful. You helped make it easy and sometimes even fun?! You were always available for questions and helped us find the absolute house of our dreams! Your patience and knowledge of the market, we’d have to say are your two greatest qualities! We can’t even remember how many homes to took us to see. For every showing you were there with all of the information we needed about the property and your upbeat attitude made working with you a dream. Thanks also for putting us in touch with all the right people to get our home inspection and financing. The transaction could not have gone smoother. We can’t thank you enough for making the purchase of our new such a great experience. Best wishes for continued success with Northrup. Kudos to you and your entire office for helping buyers like us.

As we all find out at some time in our life selling a home can be a very stressful time. We sold our home of 32 years in "08". As you remember this happened at a time when the market was a disaster. Kerry made the experience as smooth as possible, she calmed our nerves, and soothed us through the tough times. she went above and beyond anything she had to do. She always did it with a smile and a shoulder to lean on. Kerry was a God sent to us to make this transaction successful. We thank her very much and trusted her advise completely.

A couple of years ago it was my father and my pleasure to make the acquaintance of Ginny Ciulla, Realtor from your organization. After the passing of my father Ginny sold my father's home in Lynnfield for his estate . Her performance and professionalism was excellent. I cannot find enough words to express my appreciation with her work and communication skills during that difficult time.
I can tell you without hesitation that I would recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home in or out of the area that she works in. If my wife or I were looking for a residence on the North Shore of Boston, the first person we would contact is Ginny.
