We enjoyed working with Maureen very much. From our first property viewing to sitting across from her at our closing, she shepherded us through a challenging process (the property we ultimately settled on turned out to be a short sale) with grace, humor, and skill. She listens well, which is critical. She had a good sense of us as her clients, and intuited well what we were looking for even when we couldn't articulate it well. In terms of email, text, and phone communication, she is very responsive. She seems to know everyone in Essex and has gone above and beyond to make sure that we feel a part of our new community. I cannot recommend Maureen highly enough. In this public forum, allow us to say, "Thank you, Maureen!"


Maureen O'Grady was the listing agent for my home sale. The final negotiation was not an easy one, the buyers were unyielding and demanding, the buyer's agent was more of the same and I was generally stressed. I am very impressed with Maureen, John and the entire Rachel Thomas office staff and how they handled the listing, showings and final sale of my home. They were kind, responsive and negotiated in my best interest always. Thank you, I will let others know about your integrity and professional attention to detail.

Maureen assisted me in purchasing a great home. Although it was a long process, she hung in and helped me along the way.
She was able to keep the process moving, even when the sellers and other parties involved, seemed to make things very difficult. I don't think I would have closed on the home without her being my realtor


Having Maureen O'Grady working for you means that you will always see a realtor with a smile, extensive knowledge and an upbeat professional attitude.
I was having difficulty selling a large 300+ year old hybrid home. Many, many similar houses were on the market, yet Maureen jumped in with fresh eyes and found the perfect buyer as well finding the ideal location and house for my family.
I highly recommend Maureen and would work with her again in a heartbeat.

I highly recommend Maureen

Maureen made what could be a stressful process feel easy! We bought a house with her for which she was also the listing agent. Dual agency can make me nervous, but Maureen has such obvious integrity that I always felt she was balancing both our and the sellers best interests, without compromising either. I would highly recommend her.
