Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Gloucester, MA.
I was in need of a realtor to sell my home after my wife passed away so I contacted ReMax for an agent. I received a call soon after from Fintan and explained my situation to him .Fintan was very understanding and I enlisted his service .I found him very knowledgeable and professional I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
I worked with Fintan Madden over 7 years ago to purchase a condo in Gloucester. His expertise and dedication to my search made my buying experience a very happy one. He always listened to what my needs were and delivered with each showing. In no time it seemed I was settled in my new home.
Fast forward 7 years and I’m now looking for properties in NH. I’ve gone through 3 realtors that have not returned calls, not showed up at properties that we’ve had appointments at and have made this experience not as nice as I remembered with Fintan. Out of desperation I decided to contact Fintan for help on a referral. Not only did he contact me immediately, he set an action plan that none of the other realtors bothered with. He has set my mind at ease with this plan and I know he will refer me to someone with standards as high as his. If you’re thinking of securing Fintan as a realtor, you cannot go wrong. He will be there to help you every step of the way, even years down the road.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Danvers, MA.
Kathleen and Fintan were wonderful to deal with from day 1. We met with three local realtors from the area and Kathleen and Fintan came fully prepared with comps and market information. They went through a detailed presentation going over their marketing and advertising resources, many of which were services done in house within ReMax. Photography of the home was set up immediately and they connected us with a stager who was able to really help us prepare the home. We were able to sell the house and obtain asking within a week of putting it on the market. Once the offer was made and accepted, Kathleen kept us informed throughout the entire process and we closed within a month. We couldn't have been more pleased. We would highly recommend this team to anyone looking to sell their home in the North Shore area.
Fintan Madden did a wonderful job marketing and selling my property, which was a buildable lot in Rockport. Septic system issues can be thorny issues in Rockport and Fintan was very knowledgable in this area. We ran into several roadblocks along the way that resulted in the deal terminating in the first round. After some improvements were made to the lot, the buyer came back with a much lower number which was rejected. Fintan worked to keep the deal alive and negotiated it back to the original price. I have not worked with a more responsive, courteous and caring real estate broker. I would be happy to work with Fintan again and recommend him highly.
I have had the unique opportunity and great pleasure to have worked with Fintan to both purchase a condominium in Ipswich, MA in 2008 and to sell that same condomimium again in 2011. My only regret is that I moved to Brooklyn in 2011 and could not use Fintan for that transaction as well!
Throughout my entire experience from both the buying and selling side of the process I could not have been happier with the service Fintan was able to provide. The first quality that comes to mind with Fintan is consumate professional. He is punctual, organized, and does the work and analysis to provide extremely valuable perspective on your transaction. He always offers his own perspecitve and provides this with deferance to your own perspective should there be any disagreement about how to proceed. In other words, Fintan will always honestly advise but also do his best for your interests for what you ultimately decide to do. His knowledge of the market in Cape Ann and the north shore is second to none.
My sale was a particularly complicated closing process with regard to my buyer and Fintan was able to nagivate me through the process and get to a successful closing table. I'm not sure anyone else could have navigated through that with the same deftness and compitence.
I would strongly urge anyone thinking of buying or selling a home in the greater Cape Ann area to use Fintan as your agent for your transaction. He, quite simply put, is the best at what he does.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Gloucester, MA.
With the enthusiastic help of Fintan, I purchased my first condo as a short sale in 2012. I didn't really know what that entailed but Fintan explained the lengthy process it entailed, and cautioned me to be patient as it could take at least six months before the sale would be finalized. He had also shown me other condos, as well as single family homes in the area. Fintan encouraged me to purchase the condo thru the short sale; was very professional and got my answers in a timely manner. It only took 3 months for the sale to process which was earlier than expected. I would highly recommend Fintan to help find your dream house! You will not be disappointed.
Bought a Single Family home in 2001 in Wenham, MA.
I am writing to enthusiastically recommend Fintan Madden as a talented realtor in the North Shore of MA. Though Fintan is based on Cape Ann, he helped me buy a new home in Wenham and sell my existing home in Beverly.
When we met via one of his signs, I was a first time home buyer, and I knew nothing of the complex purchase and sale process. Fintan explained the process and all the documents to me in a way that I could understand. In fact, my significant other wanted to use a friend of his as realtor, but after meeting Fintan, I would not change!
I ended up purchasing new construction in a sub-division, and Fintan was "stuck" with me for about 10 months while the house was being built! During that time, he served as the go-between, whenever I needed him, between myself and the builder.
He also was a skilled negotiator in representing my interests during the sale of my existing home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Rockport, MA.
Fintan made a difficult transaction easy in every respect. He took over from another broker and was persistent, cheerful, and most of all, trustworthy. He is so well liked in the community that other brokers will show him properties early, and listen to his recommendations, which is crucial in a closely knit, high-end market like Rockport. I highly, highly recommend him.
Fintan Madden helped me and my husband with the purchase of our first home! He explained the transaction very well and, throughout the process of looking at houses, was knowledgeable, patient, professional, most helpful, and fun to deal with. He was also a tough negotiator on our behalf who really represented us very well. We just knew we could trust him 100%. He got us an amazing deal on a beautiful townhouse, and continued to assist us with advise on who to see for a good mortgage rate, etc. Fintan was there for the home inspection, making sure everything was in perfect order. He was always responsive to calls and e-mails as well. We couldn't have asked for a better Real Estate Agent and can highly recommend Fintan Madden!
