Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
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
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.
Dan and Kathy Platcow
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.
Susan & Donna Angelo

Dear Mr. Tiesi and Mr. Starr:
We write to express our deep gratitude for Marcia Poretsky.
Marcia guided us with her skillful hands through otherwise rough waters as first-time homebuyers. We appreciated how Marcia cared for us though countless phone calls after hours, providing wisdom and comfort. Even when Marcia was on vacation, she continued to take our calls (from her beach in Florida!), alleviating our worries- this made such a difference! When there was an unexpected delay in obtaining our home's occupancy permit, Marcia drove us to Lynnfield Town Hall, introducing us to the building inspector himself so that we could implore him to get it approved! Knowing that we had no experience with home ownership, Marcia even took us to the Peabody light company so that we would not be without power when we moved in. We could not have survived the home buying process were it not for Marcia's steady, guiding hand.
We appreciated how Marcia card for us like family. In anticipation of our home closing, we had purchased a new car a few weeks before. However, when the home closing was delayed by several weeks, we found ourselves with a new car but without a place to park it. Marcia subsequently lent us her own personal garage space at her home for weeks, displacing her own car for us. We are so thankful for the many ways that Marcia went completely out of her way to help us.
Now that we have settled into our home, we appreciate how Marcia continues to check in regularly, offering sage advice about homeowner issues. When a winter storm hits, Marcia calls us to make sure we're okay (we're from Texas and don't know much about dealing with snow!). We are thankful for continued concern for us even months after the sale. When we commented to Marcia that we did not know of any places to ear around our new town, we found, in our mail several days later, a letter from Marcia listing all of her favorite places around Lynnfield!
As you can see, not only did Marcia skillfully navigate the home buying process, she treated us with thoughtfulness, great kindness, genuine care and love, every step of the way. She made us feel like we are family. One reason we are thankful for our new home is that it brought Marcia into our lives. We cannot express our appreciation enough for her.

I would like to thank you for the professional way in which you sold our Peabody condominium. The transaction was smooth and took minimal time away from my practice.
I appreciate your professionalism.
Jeff Ahlin, DDS
In the midst of unpacking, we have been able to think back on the sale of our house in Peabody. Selling a house after one has lived in it for over 26 years will always be a traumatic experience, and in this market that is multiplied many fold.
Your professionalism, advice, and persistence throughout the process served as a calming influence for us. You were always there when we needed you. The guidance you provided guided us correctly in all of the decisions we had to make.
If anyone were to ask us who should they hire to buy or sell a house in the North Shore, we both would immediately respond, "Marcia Poretsky and Northrup Realtors".
Again, thank you for all your help. Please feel free to give any potential client our contact information if they are interested in checking out references.
Marlene and Joe Cohen
I can sincerely say, I have never had anyone go to such lengths to make everything work out so smoothly; take care of all the details as you did while keeping a smile on your face.
You're the best! Again, thank you so much for everything.
Thank you so much Marcia for thinking of me when this fantastic house came to your attention and for all the work and effort you put in to seeing that everything got completed on time.
We can not thank you enough.
Sarah and John Harnett
Thank you so much for all your help with the selling of our condo. We are relieved to be free of that mortgage! We are so grateful for your expertise, your patience, and your attention to detail! We can't thank you enough for moving so swiftly to secure a buyer. No wonder you have the reputation of being a wonderful agent. We're just sorry what we didn't sign up with you sooner - live and learn!
Hope you enjoy your new neighbor.
