Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We bought our first home with plenty of help from Lori Kramich She was always available to answer any of our questions. An overwhelming process was made much easier because of Lori Kramich of Northrup Associates.
Lori Kramich at Northrup Associates was the best realtor I could of hoped for in the recent sale of my home. She walked through my home and provided me with a quick and easy list of things to do which ultimately brought me the highest selling price! Lori also worked with me closely and at long length (because I'm picky) in helping me find a new home in a great location. She walked me through every step of the way answering all of my questions. You can't go wrong with Lori Kramich of Northrup Associates.
My wife and I still say that we can’t thank Lori Kramich enough for her help in our home buying process. Initially, when selling our old home we were going to sell our home using “For Sale By Owner” but once we met Lori we were easily convinced that she was the agent for us. Lori is a delightful, knowledgeable and dynamic advocate for her clients. As many people know, buying and selling a home at the same time is a very challenging and stressful period but Lori exceeded our expectations in all regards. Her knowledge about the market, the sequencing of both sides of the transaction, her down to earth personality, day and night availability (literally), and focus on what was best for us helped put us at ease the entire way. It’s cliché to say but we couldn’t recommend using Lori enough to others considering using a Northrup realtor. She is first-rate!
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.“

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!

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!
Just a note to try to express our sincere appreciation for all the hard work, endless hours and the professionalism which you and Alex brought to the challenging task of helping us sell our beloved old home. 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.

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!
