As I embark upon my 25th year in real estate, my passion for the business remains strong and my understanding of what it takes to lead a company continues to grow. What started as a relatively unknown and insignificant two realtor entity, Classified Realty, back in 2006 has blossomed into a market leader and a collaboration of 38 exceptionally talented realtors who last year had 325 sales transactions worth nearly $250,000,000.
Since getting my real estate license in 1995, many things about the industry have changed and improved. At the forefront of those changes, is the heavy reliance on the latest electronic technology. Things like texting, dotloop, showing time, digital photography, state-of-the-art websites, and many more innovations have greatly enhanced the real estate experience and substantially increased productivity.
Despite the many changes and technological advances that have occurred throughout my real estate career, there are a few things that are as important to me today as they were 25 years ago. Values like integrity, confidentiality, and fairness in dealings with clients, other realtors, coworkers and everyone with whom we come in contact still matter. Fostering a spirit of cooperation within our company as well as outside of it with other realtors and real estate companies is important too. When you can work as well with agents from other companies as well as your own everyone benefits, especially buyers and sellers.
It’s fair to say that my business values closely reflect my personal values. A realization that I find humorous; since now that my three children are grown and have started families of their own, friends of mine often refer to Classified Realty as my baby or fourth child. I guess that’s true and perhaps something that distinguishes us from other companies. At Classified we care about each other as though we’re family and that warmth and caring is reflected in the work we do with our clients.
I hope you’ll let us put our family values to work for you as I look forward to the next 25 years.
Upon graduation from St Michael’s college in 1986, Maureen began her professional career working for a small business in a position that ignited her passion for sales and entrepreneurship. After a few short years, she and her husband decided they were ready to start a family at which time she left her job and dedicated the next 9 years to being a stay at home mom and raising her two young daughters and her son. Although the decision to put her career on-hold was a difficult one, it’s a decision that was right for her and one that she looks back upon with immense pride and fondness. If asked about those days, Maureen will quickly tell you they were some of the best days of her life.
When it was time to rejoin the workforce, Maureen weighed her options and chose to pursue her real passion…residential real estate sales. In less than 2 weeks, Maureen had decided upon real estate as a career, studied for and passed the Massachusetts real estate exam, and been hired by a national real estate firm. It was the perfect choice. In real estate, Maureen found a career that allowed her to work in a field she loved, that was perfectly suited to her skillset, and that nurtured her entrepreneurial spirit.
Maureen spent the next 10 years learning the business, getting to know the local real estate market, building a clientele, sharpening her business skills, and dreaming about one day opening her own real estate company. Along the way, she focused heavily on her continuing education and earned a number of important designations and distinctions (see below).
After 15 years in the business, Maureen was ready to go out on her own and that’s when she opened Classified Realty Group in North Reading. Choosing the location of her first office was no brainer. After growing up in Reading and spending the past 25 years living and raising her family in North Reading, Maureen knew she wanted to serve the people of the communities that had given her so much. (Classified’s second office opened a few years later in Reading.) Due in large part to the reception of the Reading and North Reading communities, what started as a dream 12 short years ago has blossomed into the area’s premier real estate agency.
