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. Less ... More

Kathy Sullivan was the seller's agent for a house we recently purchased, but--given her commitment to finalizing the sale and her responsiveness to our needs as well as the seller's--she felt more like our own agent. She worked around-the-clock under difficult conditions (an unsure seller and our complicated finances, for example), and her ability to manage both sides of the transaction is undoubtedly what made everything work out as speedily and as cleanly as it did. Professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and warm, Kathy is an ideal agent to have on your side. We highly recommend the Sullivan team for any real estate needs. Less ... More

I'm an investor. Terry and Kathy are THE most knowledgable, experienced and effective real estate brokerage team on the north shore. From pricing, listing, negotiating and closing the deals, they are the best ! Over the last 25 years I've bought through them and sold through them?.and wouldn't switch. NO they didn't have to pay me to write this. They are simply the best.

Kathy and Terry Sullivan are the most amazing brokers to work with. They make every single step of the way easy and stress free. Their knowledge of real estate and the value of it is impeccable. If you are someone that is actively looking for real estate, they are the ones for you. They are go-getters and they will not let you down. They value time and they always make the deal work for you in the time frame you wish. We have worked with Kathy and Terry on several property transactions and they are the brokers that we keep coming back to. We highly recommend the Sullivan Team for anyone who is looking to buy real estate. Kim and Greg Less ... More

After my first conversation with Terry Sullivan, it was suggested that I collaborate directly with his wife Kathy given her specific understanding of Salem's historical district (which was the area my partner and I were most interested in pursuing). Since then, I have come to know Kathy quite well and hope to capture here at least some of the amazing commitment that I have witnessed in that time. Stated simply, my experience working with Kathy these past months to find a house has been absolutely ideal--she is a truly exceptional agent (and a wonderful person) without whose guidance, generosity, and knowledge I would have found this task quite impossible to navigate. In all sincerity, I could not have envisioned someone more tirelessly dedicated, considerate, attentive, and insightful to help me through this complicated process. From our initial meeting, whereupon she sat down to explain in depth all of the intricacies of purchasing a home in the area, to our final closing day, Kathy showed the most remarkable loyalty and kindness to me as her client. She responded immediately to every call, graciously spent hours of time on the phone analyzing whatever situations arose, and accompanied me on every visit, walk-through, and meeting with contractors, inspectors, and lawyers. It was undoubtedly a complex and even labyrinthine journey at certain moments, and so Kathy's continual presence at every phase proved invaluable time and again. Beyond this, her expertise in searching the housing market was unparalleled; her evaluations of the various properties we visited were honest and fair-minded, and we ended up finding a number of outstanding places to choose from. Lastly, now that we have recently bought our first home together and have excitedly begun some different renovation projects, Kathy has gone above and beyond in putting us in touch with the best crafstmen in each area in order to ensure an excellent experience into the future. I note this fact as an irrefutable testament to her character and devotion: though her official business with us is concluded at this point, she is still the first person I call for consultations on every last facet of the house, and she always extends her advice and willingness to help without hesitation. Suffice it to say, I count myself as exceedingly fortunate to have crossed paths with the Sullivan Team and am forever grateful for the phenomenal service and support that they provided to us at every turn. Flawless--I could not recommend them more highly. Less ... More

Terry and Kathy Sullivan handled the sale of my home with utmost professionalism. They explained in detail all aspects of selling a home. Their research and knowledge of the area, their prompt responsiveness to my calls, and pricing my home, exceeded my expectations.

I just finished transactions #6 (sell) and #7 (buy) with Kathy and Terry over the past 18 years. I know from experience that no matter what a transaction spits out, they will handle it. And once again they exceeded expectations. Terry, with his amazing analytical skills, is a master at pricing to sell. It may not be what you wished you would get, especially these days, but it is the price that will be supported by the market and sell your house. Too many deals fall apart at appraisal...you gotta have the comps. Terry is also a master at pre-sales improvements - what really sticks out as "tired" and what will make a house zing!. Kathy, with her abundant enthusiasm and relentless attention to detail, is a force to be reckoned with. If she is not busy reporting out to you, she is behind the scenes making 42 phone calls to ensure your deal works. She knows her markets...gets to know her clients...goes to EVERY inspection and EVERY closing...and works behind the scene to smooth out bumps you didn't even know existed. Her most value add is in the stuff you don't see....smoothing waters, resolving questions, following up. Bonnie, who never gets the spotlight, also deserves a lot of praise. She keeps Kathy on track, makes sure every T is crossed and i dotted, does great marketing work, and makes sure nothing falls through the cracks. Not an easy task - kind of like herding cats. All together, a great team backed up by a great support team...the stager, the handidude, the electrician, the plumber...the radon guy....the bug guy... Kathy has a stable of experts ready to solve problems that are magically instantly available and reasonably priced. Kathy, Terry, Bonnie - love the new house. We all know it is "temporary" - I will be selling in 8-10 years - and you know who I will go to....again. Thanks Less ... More

After a year of trying to sell our condo with no success we decided we needed a change. An open house a couple streets over from our condo led us to the Sullivan Team. Kathy was at the open house interacting with potential buyers and seemed very knowledgeable of the area. At home we looked at their website and knew then why our condo wasn?t selling, it wasn?t being marketed properly. We contacted Kathy and set up an appointment. From our very first meeting we could tell this was going to be a different experience. They had the knowledge and resources to get our condo sold even in a slow market. The photos they took of the condo were beautiful and the way it was presented on their website certainly caught the attention of many more buyers then we had seen in the preceding months. Our prior photos which we were told were fine we believe were the reason so many people looked online but never set up an appointment. Within 10 days of listing we had an accepted offer on our condo. Kathy, Terry and Bonnie handled every step of the transaction with unmatched professionalism. We thank them for helping us move forward in our quest for a single family home. At the same time we also needed to list my father?s condo for sale, it was a unique one bedroom condo with 550 square feet. Again the photos were beautiful and once it was listed on the MLS the phone calls started coming in and within 24 hours of listing we had a full price offer. Their understanding and knowledge of the market allows them to accurately price properties and market them to capture the attention of the most buyers. They know how to properly present a property for sale and most importantly they know how to get the deal closed. Less ... More

"We have engaged the Sullivan team in both a home sale and a purchase in the past 5 years. Thoroughly professional, skillful and (yes) kind. They are a nonpariel, on a level above the rest of the field when it comes to attentiveness and guidance through the quagmire of inspections, negotiations, banking and closing. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends."

I worked with Kathy Sullivan to sell my mothers condo. Within a month we had a good offer, and within two months we closed on the property. Very impressive in this "soft" market. Kathy was very attentive to detail, extremely professional, and most importantly to me - she kept me in the loop with regular communication. I will highly recommend Kathy and the Sullivan Team to my friends and family. Karen M. Peabody MA

This is the second time I've used the Sullivan Team to sell my properties on the North Shore. Both times, my property was analyzed, marketed and sold in a little under a month. Kathy and Terry definitely "know their stuff", and in an economy where houses are a tough sell, I was very impressed with both the speed of the sale and the final price. Selling and buying a home is one of the most stressful times for people in an emotional sense. Having worked with The Sullivans, there was no stress! Kathy's number is in speed dial and I look forward to working with her and Terry on my next real estate adventure. Jeff Brown Less ... More

I have worked with Kathy and Terry Sullivan for a number of years. I am a real estate investor, buying and selling numerous properties for over 30 years. Over the past year I have used the Sullivan Team to sell properties for me in Salem, Peabody, and Groveland MA. The sales were swift and the closings went very smoothly. Their process is second to none and closing issues rarely occur. Their property appraisals are usually on the money. I would highly recommend the Sullivans and RE/MAX Advantage. Less ... More

Kathy Sullivan helped my huband and me locate our dream house in a historic district of Salem. She is amazingly knowledgeable about the area - down to the specific neighborhoods - and very patiently took us to see various properties over the course of the year until we found exactly what we wanted. She also was invaluable in negociating the price with the listing broker and home owners. We had a very positive experience with Kathy and would highly recommend her.

Kathy Sullivan worked with me as a buyer's agent and I can't say enough about how professional and personable she is! I had a limited budget and search area and she worked diligently with me to find the right properties to view. Once settled on a short sale, she was wonderful and attentive as her role expanded from real estate agent to liason, counselor & advisor in the roller coaster ride that went on for several months. And always a friend in the process. Also, their website is extremely well designed to aid in the process of searching for homes and transmitting information directly to them to set up appointments. I would highly recommend Kathy and her team whether you are looking for a buyer or seller's agent. Less ... More

Kathy and Terry Sullivan are worth their weight in gold. They were professional in every sense of the word, are truly experts on the North Shore, and helped us find a wonderful home that perfectly suits our wants and needs. We could not have been happier with their service and the relentless attention to detail they showed throughout the process. When the search became frustrating, and we were ready to throw in the towel and rent something after touring a dozen houses or more, Kathy lifted our spirits, telling us to hang in there because our house was still out there. How right she was! Every aspect of the transaction was anticipated and handled promptly, thoroughly and precisely. When the time came to make an offer, Kathy was not content to just let us throw a dart at the board. She did her homework, explained the research, and helped us arrive at a price that was competitive and accepted by our sellers without a counter-offer. When it came time to inspect the home, Kathy was no wallflower. She was right there, making assessments of the home's pros and cons, always mindful that a conscientious buyer must consider the positives and negatives of reselling the property when/if the time comes. Closing went smoothly. Kathy and Bonnie, her assistant, kept us in the loop every step of the way. Nothing escaped their careful stewardship of our purchase. And, on top of all that, the entire Sullivan Team was a pleasure to work with. We feel like we've not only gained a real estate partner but new friends. I cannot recommend them highly enough for buyers and sellers in search of the best representatives on the North Shore. Thank you Kathy and Terry! We're home at last! Less ... More

We had a terrific experience with the Sullivan team and all of their office support folks as well. There was a great deal of personal attention that helped us through a very tricky sale ...lots of ups and downs that needed and received special guidance. We were particularly impressed with the marketing of our home for sale. The condo's website looked so good that we had second thoughts about selling the property! We recommend the Sullivan Team without reservation.

Wonder how a realtor could rate so many stars? Can't believe it could be true? Kathy and Terry Sullivan are the dream team! They helped me buy (then sell) my home and now I'm back buying another home with them. Because they have been respected leaders in the North Shore communities for so long, they know all the right people to help with financing, restaging, local contractors, anything you need. I purchased a foreclosed house and it's now being totally rehabilitated. I have not lost one night's sleep through this entire process--from negotiations, financing, closing, construction--because they surrounded me with quality people every step of the way. Less ... More

Do it! Having been through the buying and selling of real estate on many occassions before, we could not be anything but impressed with Kathy and Terry Sullivan and the Re-Max team. They are a wealth of knowledge. Communication is always the key to any succesful transaction and we were informed on all aspects of our purchase in a timely and courteous matter. Manners and etiquette are core values they adhere to without pause. Whether you are looking for a buyer or seller's agent, or just an informational inquiry, I am confident you will be satisfied. Knowledge and advice were delivered in earnest well outside the normal sphere of related business: Cord of wood? Check. Newspaper delivery? Check. Snow plowing? Check. Historical Society and zoning questions? Check. Financing status? Check. This team's main goal is not selling real estate; without question it is building relationships with satisfied customers that continue to support their North Shore network for today's business and tomorrow's opportunity. We would give the highest recommendation to partner with this team as no question is too small, no problem too large. You will receive 5 star service from the moment you open the menu. Less ... More
