Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
“Rowley Realty has represented our family on both the selling side and as a buying agent. Their responsiveness and knowledge of the local market was extremely helpful. Most importantly, they generated lots of activity/showings, which yielded positive results for all parties involved. We would not hesitate to work with Rowley Realty again in the future.”
“We worked with John and the Rowley Realty team for both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our other home. John made the process very simple. His knowledge of Rowley and the surrounding towns really can help you understand the market.
John is extremely responsive and a very good listener. We worked very closely with him and he was also accessible.
He understands the real estate market and is open and honest.
I would highly recommend John and Rowley Realty!!”

“I was a first time home seller, and really nervous. I was in the middle of improvements to my house, and really wanted to sell it quickly and for a reasonable price. John walked me through the whole process. He told me which things were must-fix, he put me in touch with reliable local contractors and handymen to get those things done.
When I was ready to list, he set my expectations realistically, and I appreciated that. He priced the house to sell, and it sold after the first open house. He negotiated the price higher than the asking price between a couple bidders – for me it was a miracle.
After the house sold, I was in the process of downsizing to a teenie condo, and my life was incredibly chaotic. I left 2 cabinets full of kitchenwares, and John graciously boxed them up, hauled them to his office, and saved them for me.
I would absolutely work with John again. He’s reliable, reasonable and really just a good person to be working with in the selling / buying process – and not everyone is.”

“John is an ethical, thoughtful, responsive, knowledgeable and personable realtor. I have executed a number of real estate transactions in our local town and he handled them all flawlessly. John is also a genuinely nice person and I give him my highest recommendation for excellence in realtor services. Yes, this is a rave review, but deservedly so in John’s case.”

“I contacted John as a known local realtor. John was extremely helpful is showing me several properties until he found me the right one. He handled all of the negotiations while contributing sound advice from initial offer right through closing. I would highly recommend his services.”

“My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting John at an Open House in Rowley in 2010. He immediately impressed us with his knowledge of the real estate market and of the communities we were interested in. Additionally, he is honest, upbeat, and genuinely friendly; a true professional who clearly loves and excels at his job.
When we decided that it was time to sell our home John was the only person we considered. In a short time he had marketed and found a buyer for our home. At the same time, he worked on finding us our dream home here in Rowley, and again, in very short order he came through for us. He made what can be a very stressful time as smooth and effortless as it could possibly be.
I have recommended John and Rowley Realty to anyone who has sought my opinion regarding local Realtors. They are the ideal when it comes to local business; always there for clients and their community…exactly how a business should be!”

“John was great. I always recommend him to my friends looking for a realtor in the area. My husband and I had specific things that we were looking for, which John took the time to understand. He never pressured us to leave our price range and was incredibly patient. We weren’t the easiest shoppers. Twice we felt like committing and then decided to pull out at the last minute. John gave us space when we wanted to put the search on hold and was quick to set up showings when we asked for them. Ultimately, he was the one to find the perfect house for us, the very day it was put on the market. The house went fast; we actually had to bid for it and haggle a bit to “win” the house. John made the process easy to understand for first-time house buyers, new to every aspect of the experience. He responded to emails promptly and met with us numerous times, at our request. During showings, he demonstrated lots of expertise and advice that we found extremely valuable in our decision making. We felt him to be very trustworthy. Good luck with your own house hunt!”

“John was the best Real Estate agent my wife and I ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He sold our home in approximately a month’s time even though the first couple backed out at the last minute. He acted as our Buyer’s Agent for the townhouse we bought. Without his expertise and calm manner, he turned what was a very stressful event (due to the bank we were dealing with) into a successful closing. I would recommend John to anyone interested in getting a fair price for their home and selling it in a reasonable time. In fact, later this year my wife and I are going to be moving to Georgia and plan to use John to sell our townhouse.”

“John McCarthy is the only realtor to use if you are looking in the Rowley/ North shore area! He has extensive local knowledge and was extremely honest and easy to deal with. Real Estate transactions are always stressful and John was there for us whenever we needed him.

“I’ve purchased 2 properties with John’s help and the process was very smooth, timely follow up on all questions and concerns. Very knowledgeable and willing to check on town regulations and process for approvals. Works seamlessly with banks, appraisers, inspectors etc. John is very personable and honest! A pleasure to work with. I refer anyone I know or meet that is looking to buy or sell to call him.”
