11/14/2017 -Sold Single Family Home Lynnfield, MA 01940
"No one knows, tracks and fully comprehends the local market like Marjorie does. Her thorough knowledge of the market allows her to help both buyers and sellers alike (and I've worked with her both as a buyer and twice as a seller) understand the appropriate pricing for homes and ensure you are getting the most (if selling) or the best deal (if buying). She also knows how to market a home beautifully to put it in its absolute best light. But above all, Marjorie works harder than any real estate agent I've ever known. She is dogged, persistent and responsive in a way you just don't see. Whether I'm calling, texting or emailing her at 5:30 AM or 11:30 pm, Marjorie is always there and always ready to give candid, direct and useful advice. She's the best I've worked with (and I've worked with a lot of agents over the years) by far."

We used Marjorie to sell our home Lynnfield. She was very strong at
ensuring our listing was set up for success. Establishing the right
listing price, bringing in a professional decorator to suggest small but
effective changes to have our house
show at its best, and producing a top notch marketing video were some
of the strategies that Marjorie utilized. While the negotiations with
our buyers sometimes became challenging, Marjorie helped producing
win-win results for both buyer and seller. That
is a wonderful and unique quality in a real estate broker.
All of Marjorie's team members sincerely want their client to be happy. Selling a home is way too complex, but Marjorie's team was always available to provide thoughtful, honest answers to every question. Marjorie helped us take advantage of a market opportunity, was able to guide us to react very quickly, including providing a list of really exceptional local vendors needed to prep the house. In the end we were thrilled with the process and the result
04/26/17- Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Lynnfield, MA.We were introduced to Marjorie and her team after inquiring about a property listing in Lynnfield. She and her team quickly coordinated showings with the listing agent and worked to put together a competitive offer. Although it was disappointing when we did not get the property, Marjorie quickly identified another possible match with an owner that was preparing to sell, but had not yet put the home on the market. The property was exactly what we were looking for and Marjorie worked hard to ensure a positive outcome for all parties. Marjorie’s network and extensive knowledge of the Lynnfield market and the vendors that work in the area was an enormous benefit as we went through the buying process and now the moving and renovation process. Her recommendations for everything from movers to contractors, painters, house cleaners have been excellent and reasonably priced. This saved us a huge amount of time. She also introduced us to another family in the neighborhood with children the same ages as ours, so we felt like we had a sense of the community. I would highly recommend Marjorie and her team to anyone interested in buying or selling in the area.

I can't say enough about Marjorie and her team! Her staging recommendations and pricing ideas created a bidding war where we had eight offers in six days. In the end we ended up making significant money (despite coming to her hoping to lose as little as possible in an attempt to get out of our house fast). What a difference a good realtor can make!

Our experience with Marjorie and her team was very positive. They managed the process very effectively, were always available and represented our interests professionally and aggressively. The transaction closed smoothly and faster than we had anticipated. I would have no hesitation in using Marjorie and her team again in the future.

At my first meeting with Ellen, I was sold! She looked me in the eye and said, ‘I will work hard for you!’ and that she did! Ellen surrounded our family and home with 'Can Do' professionals to guide us through what could have been an emotionally charged experience. She listened and valued our input as we priced, marketed and SOLD our home. It takes a village to sell a home! Ellen’s team of professionals spanned from stagers, photographers, legal advisors, contractors, movers and many others from her office. All very responsive and determined to find solutions for any obstacle we faced. There was never a wait and see moment!! Ellen’s experienced negotiation skills secured the final sale. As the moving van pulled away from our Massachusetts home, we knew that Ellen had found someone who would love our home as much as we had – What more could you want!
12/17/2016 - Sold a Single-Family home in 2016 in Reading, MA Review for Team Member: Ellen Crawford
Ellens support in selling our home was tremendous. Starting from idea generation, selling strategy, fixing things in the house to get it ready for showings, staging arrangement, coordination with neighbors, lawyer introduction, negotiating with the buyers, maintaining fairness and completely defending the seller's interest was remarkable. We moved out of the area and so visiting the home to take care of even little things were a big time sink. Ellen took all those things on and finished it as they came her way and informing us of all the good progress. If we ever have another house to buy/sell in this region, there is no question who we would want to represent us. Ellen will also be the first name that will come to our mind when someone asks for a reference. It was indeed a somewhat challenging house to sell in some ways. Ellen clearly went beyond the call of duty. Without a dedicated realtor like you, we would have had to commute to the property multiple times to take care of things. Ellen made it seamless for us. It's not just Ellen, but the extended team she works with is also remarkable and dedicated just like her. Best wishes!!

I would highly suggest working with Ellen, due to her hard work and incredible knowledge of the area. We had tried selling our home for quite some time and Ellen found buyers who were a perfect fit. We still hear from the buyers regards to how much they love the home and we are very happy on our end as well.

We spent nearly a full year preparing our home in Lynnfield for sale, with guidance from Marjorie Youngren. 35 years of possessions and accumulations were not easy to part with as we did the downsize thing from a 4BR home to a 2 BR condo. Thanks to the ongoing advice and enthusiasm from Marjorie we were successful this past October. Sold the home. Found the right condo for us (one-floor living) with just the right feel. Marjorie was so helpful along the way with home prep for sale as well as working with the seller's broker of the right condo. We are happy campers in the condo we'd hoped for! With gratitude...Margie and Steve

Marjorie and her team was nothing short of phenomenal in our recent home sale in Lynnfield. She was willing to put in the initial effort to, not only get us as a client, but also to make sure he property was in the best position possible to sell quickly. Her negotiation skills and knowledge of North Shore area were extremely valuable throughout the process and her attention to detail was consistent all the way to the end. I highly recommend Marjorie and her team - Couldn't be happier with the entire process.

We had the good fortune of working with Marjorie and her team when we sold our house. When you deal with them, you get a group of true professionals which includes everything from a handyman to a photographer that truly captures the best aspects of your home. Marjorie has outstanding communication skills and responds to you immediately which is very important for this process. We highly recommend the Marjorie Youngren Team to get the best results!

Marjorie came highly recommended to us and she did not disappoint. Marjorie worked with my husband and I for quite some time before we found our dream house. Throughout the entire process Marjorie was there guiding us through. She is extremely knowledgeable about the town of Lynnfield and was able to get us into many houses before anyone else. One of the things that extremely impressed me about Marjorie was her availability. I can honestly say there was never a time that we felt we couldn't get in touch with her and her response was always immediate. We never felt like we were left hanging or that we couldn't get into a house as soon as possible. She always made herself available. We are extremely grateful to her for all of her hard work and would highly recommend her.

We worked with Marjorie this summer to sell our parents' home in Wakefield. Marjorie¹s knowledge of the local market is topnotch! We had a goal of moving the house as quickly as possible and she made it happen. As we prepared the house for sale, her extended list of professionals was very helpful. From the inspector to the installer for the new smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, their timely and professional service was greatly appreciated. Marjorie stayed in contact with us through e-mail and telephone and was always promptly responsive to our inquiries as the process unfolded. She also worked her magic behind the scenes, demonstrating a great network of connections, so that we only needed one weekend open house and received over our asking price three days later! From our first meeting with Marjorie to our accepted offer took less than 7 weeks. We couldn't have done it without her!
