Very happy with the help Noreen gave me with the purchase of my home. Her knowledge of a building inspector and attentiveness to detail saved me thousands. If you are looking for a realtor, she is the one.

Noreen is the realtor you need in your court. She is motivated, assertive, creative and does what it takes. I trust her 100% with selling my property and she came through. You can't go wrong with having her on your team!

Debra N

Noreen was thorough in her research and very helpful with suggestions to ensure the house was ready to be shown in order to obtain top dollar offers. The sale was quick and easily completed. Thanks, Noreen!

Noreen is simply spectacular in every respect. She is thorough, responsive, affable, reliable, a staunch advocate, and extremely knowledgeable. We've worked with many Realtors for several home purchases, large and small. Noreen is easily the best!

This is our second opportunity to work with Noreen. The first time we were the buyers and because we had such a good experience, we got in touch and asked her for help when it was time to sell. She has an amazing breadth of knowledge of the industry, coupled with a great personality and a desire to help with whatever it takes to get the deal done. Always easy to get in touch with, she's a steady hand that guides the process through seamlessly. We put up a house to sell in the middle of a pandemic when the rules of real estate and closings seemed to change daily, but Noreen never skipped a beat. The process was smooth, the deal was agreeable and easy. We wrapped up the process very happy with the results. While we don't have plans to move again for a while, we would absolutely reach out to her again if needed. Highly recommended!

Matt M.

Highly recommend Noreen, she did a great job with us, very helpful and informative. Helped us non stop from the minute we made the offer and still even checked in after closing. Always available to answer any questions or concerns.

Buying a house is stressful. My wife and I worked with Noreen on our recent house purchase. . The only and best way to describe Noreen is; "she's the best"!!! I checked all the boxes regarding Noreen's strengths. The strength that was so important to us was her "responsiveness' to our questions and concerns. This kept the process moving forward. Her local knowledge was also a key strength we tapped into as we were three plus (3+) hours away from our targeted area. She helped us find local attorney, home inspector and walked me through the necessary paperwork for town services/connections. Lastly, at closing, everything went smoothly due to her verifying and double checking we had everything in order. Take the stress out of home buying and give Noreen a call.

Jeff T

Noreen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was extremely friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. She walked us through the entire process, and was always available for questions or to lend assistance. When we had to have some work done to the house after the inspection, she did virtually all of the work to schedule folks to come out - she made everything so easy for us. She also was able to get us the full asking price, which was fantastic. I would absolutely work with Noreen again, without hesitation, and would certainly recommend her to others. She was really great.

David P

Noreen was a stellar agent for first time home buyers. Her tactful negotiations and support of her buyers is unmatched. Noreen was always responsive to our many calls, texts and emails. Noreen would always follow up on requests and visit the home to ensure repairs are complete. We could not be more happy with our experience and recommend any buyer whether it’s the first or fiftieth property to work with Noreen!

Kent P

Noreen did an excellent job with the closing of our home. She fought hard for us on what we needed, and then when we went under contract, she helped facilitate one of the smoothest closing I have been apart of. Noreen did a great job and I will recommend her to anyone.

Trey B

We asked a lot of Noreen - getting our beach condo sold and our new sound-front home purchased all within short period of time, with closings one day apart. She managed everything beautifully and was a pleasure to work with. We give her our highest recommendation for anyone buying or selling property.

Amy C
Seller & Buyer

Noreen was excellent at helping us find our condo! She listened to our needs and took us to several places until we found IT! She did not leave us hanging after our choice, she followed though until the end and helped us find the people we needed for everything that had to done before closing. She met us at closing and finished the work! Noreen was diligent and on top of things. She is THE BEST!

Over the years I have owned several houses and worked with a number of real estate agents. None of them come close to the professionalism, dedication, trustworthiness, and support of Noreen Barrett. She gave her full attention to my home search and to the negotiations with the seller once I found my ideal home. I was very impressed with her concern for my financial future. I am a bit phobic about finances but she helped me remain calm and focused. She patiently explained things sometimes over and over until I finally got it. I was, at times, a challenge but she put me at ease and now I have a beautiful home that I can afford and enjoy for many years to come. Noreen has the perfect personality for real estate. She is outgoing, dedicated to her profession, and not afraid of hard work. I could call her at any time of the day or night for help or reassurance. Above all she invites trust. I am totally amazed at her negotiating skills. When my condo didn't appraise, she negotiated an excellent outcome. She was firm with the seller but very professional. She always had my best interests at heart. I would recommend Noreen Barrett to any home buyer or seller. I carry her card with me and give them to friends and acquaintances who are looking for a first-class realtor. Noreen has my deepest thanks for an excellent home buying experience.

Chris C

Organized, Knowledgeable, Responsive, and Trustworthyall top the list of qualities of Noreen. She was very helpful in the buying process and very diligent with staying on top of necessary parties to keep things in order. In my case the load had to go without a hitch b/c closing was such a short time frame. Noreen managed that timeline very well. Noreen also made wonderful recommendations for legal and other third party items. She made the buying process so much easier. I would highly recommend spending 5 minutes if you are considering a real estate agent, and you will know why she's so good

Joey G

Noreen was a tremendous asset in finding a home we truly love, in the area that is right for my family. She is a true professional and was tireless in helping my husband and I through every phase of the process. Noreen is a most resourceful, attentive, knowledgeable, and truly genuine person. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thanks so much, Noreen!

Kelley H

Noreen Barrett is the best. If I could mark 10 stars that might come close to stating how I feel about Noreen's service.. From the first contact she was helpful, friendly, easy to communicate with and responded immediately to questions, giving accurate information and guiding us through the purchase twists and turns. Noreen was with us every step of the process. She solved problems, found the right people for the minor repairs and communicated information to us and the mortgage company. Without Noreen's help the process of buying the house 150 miles away from our location would have been a much more difficult project. Your attention to details, communication skills and general knowledge about the area help us to make the decision to purchase. Thank you Noreen.
