We can't say enough good things about Maureen who was instrumental in helping us find the exact type of lake house that we were hoping for in the Traverse City area. She really knows the market in this region and offers sound advice. We began our search in late Sept 2014 and closed at the beginning of December! Maureen listened and responded to our many questions, was always punctual and very patient at each showing, never pushed us in any direction, and quietly let us find the house that is perfect for us. She was extremely helpful and professional with advice during negotiation and took us to closing with no hitches. Her long-time assistant Chrissy was also very professional and helpful. They make a great pair! We give our highest recommendation to Maureen Penfold!

Maureen was great to work with! Extremely patient and easy going. I would play 20 questions with her and Chrissy her assistant pretty much on a daily basis and they were very helpful. I highly recommend working with this dynamic duo.

Chrissy is so wonderful to work with! I bought my first house through Chrissy and Maureen in 2012 and they really helped to make it as simple as possible.
When it came time to sell that house I decided to use them again - and the selling process was also made as stress free as possible. My husband and I then went right into buying another house and we had specific expectations and requirements but Chrissy was so keen on making our priorities her priorities. She has a way of making you feel like her only client. Coupled with her knowledge of the area and just her expertise in the process of buying and selling, I know, each time, that we are in the right hands.
I would highly recommend Chrissy and Maureen for any buying or selling needs!

Primary point of contact: Chrissy Ingersol
We had a wonderful experience working with Chrissy Ingersol. She was very friendly, knowledgable, and always answered every question we had with a quick response. We sold our house in less than a week and she found us our new home that we love! We will be recommending Chrissy to anyone we know who is looking for a new home. She made this whole process simple and stress free! We appreciate everything she has done for us.
We felt that Maureen was always looking out for us with our best interest in mind at all times. She really understood what we wanted, was patient and we never felt pressured to buy. Maureen pointed out the pros and cons of each property and let us decide what worked best for us. The support from Chrissy was great. We could tell they really worked as a team.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Empire, MI.
We started our search via internet in September and Maureen and Chrissy provided many, many listings that fit our profile. This was done based on a phone call as we lived in Texas, so they spent significant time without having even met us face to face. We communicated by phone and computer over the winter as properties were added to our list. Once the weather finally broke and we were able to actually visit properties, Maureen set up a weekend and we saw all the listings on our list. On the flight back to Texas we called and made an offer. Maureen did a very good job understanding the market and managing our requirements and within a couple of days we had a deal.
We were not only very pleased with our experience finding the right house but also with the professionalism they exhibited getting everything done between signing the contract and closing. They handled everything from inspections to correspondence with the sellers that helped us tremendously as we were out of town throughout this period.

I have known Maureen for 20 years, and have used her services and recommended her services to others repeatedly. She has been unfailingly pleasant to work with, has engendered great trust in her expertise, and has been unfailingly professional in all our dealings. While I hope to not need real estate services again for many years, I would definitely seek her assistance and/or advice in the future. She has been a delight.
What an incredible experience! We listed our home on a Monday, showings on Tuesday, and a great offer on Wednesday.
Maureen completed an appraisal of our home quickly and accurately and provided all details supporting the valuation. We also had this independently verified and she was right on target. She knows the market very well.
Maureen has a network of contacts that get the word out on your property quickly. In fact, our home sold at our asking price before the ‘for sale’ sign was placed in the yard.
One of the best qualities that we found in working with her was the constant communication. We were always quickly informed and updated thought the process via phone, e-mail, text, etc. She also has a dynamic assistant that is on top of all the details, showings, schedules, etc. a great asset to the whole process.
This team also makes great use of technology to market, promote, and get results for your real estate transaction. We especially liked the electronic document service she uses so we weren’t running all over town signing documents when needed – we could perform this on our tablet or home computer and accommodate our busy schedules and location.
If you want to sell your property quickly and efficiently, I highly recommend Maureen Penfold and her terrific team.

Maureen is a professional that knows the market extremely well in the Grand Traverse area. She understood our needs and was prompt to answer questions. Both Maureen and Chrissy worked well together in getting our house sold in a short amount of time!
