Eric is great! Very fast to respond, Always wicked helpful. He goes above and beyond and makes sure that his clients are very well taken care of. He will be my number 1 real estate professional for life.
Eric helped me sell my Condo in Reading MA. He was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable of the local towns/cities and thorough. He made what can be a stressful process easy. He always kept me informed, extremely positive and had great ideas on best methods to attract buyers. I am very happy that Eric Doherty was my realtor. I will recommend him.
Eric has helped us with three straight transactions – the selling of condos in Reading and Malden, and the purchase of a townhouse in Wakefield. Throughout this whole year, he’s been very enthusiastic, extremely positive, knowledgeable of the local towns/cities we were looking at - and thorough. He has always kept us informed and has made what can be a stressful process - easy and smooth. I would absolutely recommend him to others
Eric Doherty is exactly what you want in a realtor. For us, he was always a friend first, and a realtor second. Every step of the way Eric never pressured us, understood our concerns, bared with us as we changed our minds over and over again. Beyond his friendly demeanor, Eric is a real expert on home ownership. As first-time buyers, there were many unknowns for us when it came to repairs, do-it-yourself projects, etc. and Eric was able to point things out to us that we would never see on our own. By the time we found the house that we purchased, we had a much better idea of what we'd need to do because of all the hands-on homeowner's training that Eric basically put us through with every other house we saw. Eric understood that we didn't want to buy a house that required a lot of work, but he helped us see that we needed to buy a house that we could grow into over a longer time period. Eric understood our unique situation and helped us find the perfect place basically within a few weeks after we really started searching. Although Eric was a perfect partner for the house search process, he was an even bigger help after our offer was accepted. There were nearly a dozen little things that we didn't love to find out during the inspection, nothing that would break the sale, but new things that we now realized we'd have to deal with. Eric skillfully negotiated with the listing agent to get the seller to take care of every item on the list, things that the seller was under no obligation to do. This made the move-in process even easier as now there was very little for us to do other than buy new furniture and add our own touches to a perfect home. Eric also had great connections to other services, including our bank and inspector. Eric made it very easy for us and by the end we had a solid team all working on behalf of us. It all started with Eric though, and without him guiding us throughout the process we wouldn't be where we are today -- in a perfect house for the first time!

Maureen has been the most wonderful Real Estate Agent I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. I have purchased several properties from her in the past ten years, and with each purchase, she has provided me with professional, intelligent and trustworthy service. She is very responsive and sensitive to your needs and works diligently to provide you with a smooth and stress free transaction. It is clear that Maureen takes great pride in her work because from your very first meeting until you have settled into your new home she is with you whole heartily every step of the way. I am currently in the process of selling my house and I am confident that Maureen will once again provide outstanding service.
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!
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!

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.
