Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Kim and I wanted to thank you for the great service you provided us over the past year. We love our new home and are very happy with the sell price of our former home. We started working together over a year ago and I think the recommendations you made added significant value to our home and helped it go over asking price in a very short amount of time. Also your network of contractors did great work for us and were very professional. The process wasn't always easy but your professionalism and calm demeanor helped us overcome the inevitable hurdles which come with buying and selling a home in a short period of time. Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference for other potential clients.
Debra helped my husband and I every step of the way when we bought our first home. We were very new to the process so assisted in any way she could. When we were able to find the right house she helped us to present our best offer and it was accepted! She was always easy to get in touch with and available to talk day or night. I highly recommend Debra!

From the moment I met Debra I knew she was someone I would be comfortable working with. She worked with me both on acquiring property and then selling property. She found property for me in my price range in the neighborhood I wanted to live in and sold my property at asking price. Good experience all around.
As a first time home buyer, I would highly recommend Debra for a realtor. She is professional, dependable, reliable and overall, a wonderful person to work with. We have been thinking about buying a home for awhile, but did not know where to even begin. We were connected to Debra through a mutual friend and she immediately offered to help us. From day one, she was working to find us a perfect home. We felt that we could ask her for her honest opinion and she always had our best interest. Any time we had questions or concerns, she would immediately get back to us. We never felt that we were not a priority. She made this process easy and fun. So, many thanks to Debra, a great realtor and new friend!
Your office recently sold our property and was involved in the purchase of our new home.
Gale Rawding and Joanne Paine were tireless in their efforts to sell our property. To our surprise, the house took longer than most to sell and the “right” buyer did not come along quickly. However, Gale Joanne and others in your office were diligent in their efforts to find the “right” buyer. Your staff exhibits professionalism, honesty and perseverance in their job. This was even more evident when dealing with a competitor on the purchase of our new home.
Northrup is a trusted and valued Real Estate office and we will continue to do business with you and encourage others to do so as well.

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. Our house didn't sell and when the Broker's contract expired, we eagerly went with Gale Rawding and Northrup Associates.
Gale provided us with the support and suggestions necessary to sell our house. Selling a home in these difficult economic times was not easy and we hit road blocks along the way. Gale always had our back and guided us in a direction that was in our best interest. Eventually, as Gale promised, we sold our house for a price that she estimated before we started the selling process. We were very pleased working with Gale and Northrup and we would use them again without hesitation. Our biggest mistake was not using Gale and Northrup first.

Gale and Joanne,
My family and I cannot thank you enough for all you did to get us into our dream home. In less than two months, you accomplished what we would not trust another company to accomplish in a year. You listed and sold our home and uncovered and resolved a significant issue with our new home that would have been very costly to us if undetected. Your knowledge and commitment as well as the support of your entire office gave us the confidence and support we needed through this entire experience.
We are loving our new home. Thank you for being a major part of making it happen!!
Many thanks and appreciation,
Gerry, Sharon and Matthew
Thank you ever so much for helping to get things started for us in listing, marketing, and eventually selling my home at 9 Newhall Road. I could hardly believe just how quickly that everything was underway at the meeting that we had sitting around the dining room table together. Many, many thanks for designating Gale Rawding to be our personal broker. She really did a superb job in handling everything, much of which was undoubtedly way over and above the call of duty. I am so delighted as well as relieved that we closed last Wednesday, 6/29, merely two short months from that go-ahead. I actually found it somewhat hard to believe how caring, efficiently and professionally that Gale handled everything. She is a true friend. Just an amazing and incredible accomplishment, for sure !!
I am back HOME, in Maine, where I really know I belong. I found myself singing, over and over, one of Simon & Garfunkel's hit songs, "Homeward Bound" on the ride up. I truly don't quite know just where to begin in thanking you for EVERYTHING!!!! Just incredible !!!! I have Oh so many feelings and emotions, but truly feel that I have a new very dear friend in Gale Rawding !! Whether "cut from the same cloth", or whatever, it just "feels good". I am sure that we shall continue to stay in touch, knowing full well that I have so, so much to feel thankful and grateful for. Also, thank you kindly for your lovely gifts - very touching, I assure you. Must go now to continue the wonderful task of "settling in".
Many, Many Thanks My Very Dear Friend !!
(it almost makes me forget that you also were my "designated" Realtor!!)
I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for the outstanding service I received from Northrup and more specifically Gale Rawding. I would not have managed to get through the sale of my Lynnfield home and then, the purchase of my new condo in Wakefield without her detailed and professional services. She helped me understand the process, and then, ever so carefully, guided me through each step with patience and understanding. She left nothing to chance and addressed every detail. She conducts herself at the most professional manner, while also making me feel comfortable and well informed. She is a GEM and I will recommend her and Northrup to anyone I know in need of such services. We used Northrup to purchase our home back in 1993 (it was Gale) so we wanted to use Northrup again, and Gale if she was still around. Lucky she is!
Thank you- and I just wanted you to know.
