Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
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.

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.
Jake and Marlene Pomeroy
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding service you provided in the sale of my parent’s home and our own home in Peabody. I appreciated your open and frequent communications in keeping me updated on all current developments and your quick follow-ups, as well as the accommodating ways in which you handled all of our requests regarding showings and open houses. To our absolute delight, you also managed to sell our own home after only one day on the market!
Thanks for a job well done…or two jobs actually. I have the utmost confidence that anyone trusting the sale of their home to you will not only be satisfied, but will be very pleased with their decision. To work with you was such a pleasure. Thank you again.
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter on behalf of Marcia Poretsky. I believe that Marcia is a person of integrity and honesty.
My brother, sister and I recently needed to sell our family home, which was difficult because of sentimental reasons. I decided to contact Marcia to ask her to take a look at the home and give us her professional opinion. Her keen observance with regard to special features in the house, her ability to pay attention to detail relative to all aspects of selling real estate and her enthusiasm all contributed to her being the broker of choice.
Marcia relieved the stress and details that go with pre-closing matters thus ensuring a smooth closing. She gave us confidence and a wonderful sense of completion. On behalf of my family I am happy to recommend Marcia as an expert in her field.
Marcia is a pro who works quite hard to make the sale happen. She is very flexible and was able to work with everyone, including our dog! She is an asset to Northrup Associates.
Sandy and Tim M.
Marcia attended to every detail and exhibited the highest level of professionalism right up to the and including the closing of the sale. We have recommended Marcia to a number of people and appreciated the fine work she did for us. It was a pleasure dealing Northrup Associates, especially Marcia.
