    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Essex Village, Essex, CT.

    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!"  More Less
