Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I listed my condo in Brighton with Norman (May 2018). It sold quickly and over the asking price. He made the experience completely stress-free for me. His style is low key but he gets things done very effectively. He is organized, knowledgeable, and prepared. Thank you, Norman!

“From our experience, Norman’s perserverance and professionalism are unsurpassed in the realty profession. Having relocated to the North Shore required that we have someone who is reliable and thorough to sell our house. Norman exceeded our expectations on all counts. He would be an asset to anyone selling property in the Brighton area.”
We were more than satisfied with the way Norman handle the sale of our house. He was right on with the estimated sales price and was constantly in touch with us throughout the process. He also helped us find an outstanding moving company as well an individual to help clean the cellar. He is very detailed oriented. A pleasure to work with during tumultuous times. He took the worry out of all the details involved in selling of our home.
“At the end of 2008 my mother died in Boston and I was living in Alaska. I was made the executor of there estate and was given the task of selling her home. Not being familiar with the Boston housing market I was referred to Neil by our attorney as a good resource realtor for this market.
I have dealt with several realtors in the past and was generally not impressed. Neil turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. He came to our home and conducted an extensive on site evaluation. Within a few days he had produced an extensive market analysis showing us the comparable properties and prices in our area. He recommended the best price to sell our home for a timely sale.
Throughout the selling process Neil was an invaluable resource for us every step of the way. He recommended various trade people to help us in cleaning out, painting, repairing, floor work, and staging to make our home look its best. He was always there to answer our questions and help us to get our property sold. He also performed an extensive marketing campaign to show our home to the widest audience.
At the first open house we had three full price offers and in the subsequent bid off we got substantially more than our asking price. In the tough housing market we are in now, I cannot recommend Neil highly enough for his professionalism and attention to detail and his ability to get the job done.
In addition to being an excellent realtor, Neil is also a great guy and a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
Norman has been extremely helpful and patient in helping us selling this house. It has been a process, from spending the time going over the details of the house and the comparisons, as well as what to focus on in staging the house. He is very attentive in details, very timely in preparing documentation for us to review and sign. He is also very flexible in his schedule, willing to meet with us, at our house, during evening time and weekend which works for us with young kids. We also bought a new house in Lexington too and he did excellent job in getting us the house and preparing all the documentations and arrangements during the buying process. I highly recommend him as a seller and buyer’s agent
Norman was our agent when we sold our home . We would recommend him to anyone in the Allston / Brighton area looking to buy or sell a home. He is very experienced in marketing and was creative with getting our home maximum exposure. Norman was always available for us when we had questions. We would absolutely use him again.
Norman helped us sell our condo, and buy our new house. We contacted him at the last possible minute to put our condo on the market and he had it ready to go for the open house! Norman really understood who our buyer would be and marketed to that group. He is friendly, calm and efficient and really knows his stuff. He helped us through every step of the process-marketing as well as all of the things which have to get done after the offer has been accepted. He is always easy to get in contact with when you need him. I would highly recommend Norman!
Norman is just what my wife and I were looking for in a real estate broker. Over the years we were on his mailing list and appreciated his monthly mailings with helpful hints for home owners and renters. He was there to give us appraisals at a couple of points when we considered moving – no pressure, just the information we asked for. He was also an excellent source for referrals if we needed work done on the house. He has a wide range of contacts in the various trades and professions. He is clearly in business for the long haul, establishing long term relationships with people. He was the natural choice for someone to go to when I finally decided it was time to sell. Nobody would know the Brighton market better than he does and he guided me through the process very smoothly. Now that it’s all done, I’m glad I made the choice I did
We sold our home this spring, from 900 miles away, and in the middle of a serious family illness. What might have been expected to have become a stressful experience was a breeze because Norman took care of everything. Norman not only helped to manage the phases of the sale from listing, showing and managing offers to P&S to inspections and closing, but he also provided valuable advice and assistance that was important to us given that we were so distant from the property.
If ever I had wondered whether hiring a realtor to manage a sale was worth the commission, this experience answered the question clearly. Oh, and, we got MORE than we were asking for the property! An amazing experience. Norman knows his stuff, he knows the process inside and out, he is proactive when appropriate and he was very responsive when we needed him to be. I cannot say enough how great the experience was, and I give Norman my highest recommendation.
“I am writing to applaud the extraordinary and successful efforts of Norman O’Grady to help me sell my condominium. He selflessly and thoughtfully showed the unit when he found interested parties in midweek, anticipated needed work and assisted me in carrying the work out. I couldn’t have done it without him.
Thank you, Norman!”
