Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I take these rating tasks seriously as they are tantamount to a Letter of Recommendation! Maureen was found by a highly sophisticated process of "Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe!" From the moment we met Maureen White to this day she continues to be a source of resources, wisdom and kindness.
The Berkshires may not be the largest territory but it is an area filled with history and nuance - enough lore that could easily be justified as college major! If this were true then we would be talking about Dr. Maureen White! Her skills to understand client needs and not just what is wanted but being able to prioritize these needs is uncanny spot on!
Our closing attorney is actually a good friend and frankly Maureen is so trustworthy and learned in the pertinent legalese we would have been well served if we could have had her wear this hat too!
Our dream vacation home is just as magical as the services provided by Maureen. Frankly, it is safe to claim we made our first Southfield friends as a result of working with Maureen White and her mother Mary White!
Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Southfield, MA.
Maureen just guided my wife and I over a 6 month period to buy a vacation home in the Southern Berkshires. She was terrific - knowledgable, responsive, resourceful, and energetic. We found the house we wanted, in the price range we were looking, and could not be more pleased. To top it all off, Maureen has a delightfully calming way with a great sense of humor.

Dear Maureen & Mary,
I must remember to thank Charlie for leading down the path to your door! From the very beginning there was a strong connection to both of you. We looked at lots of places and you listened to our hopes and dreams and in the end found the perfect place! Thank you so much for your professionalism, your attention to detail, your humor, and your generous gift. I couldn't have asked for a better team! Thank you, thank you!

If I could give Barnbrook 6 stars I would. Professional as the day is long. Even my son used Barnbrook Realty to sell their house 2 years prior to mine with exceptional customer service. Every phone call was returned promptly. Every question was answered with ease and a "no worries" attitude. Suzann Ward is a shining star here too! Thank you all very much!
Barnbrook Realty is our first choice in town BECAUSE of Suzann. We purchased our home in the Berkshires 5 years ago with her, and since have sold it, and bought two more houses. She is amazing, thorough and a steller realtor. She really loves her job and is always there to answer calls and to make sure things are right. Every person we meet we tell them they MUST use Suzann. I do have to say that the staff at Barnbrook is also very helpful and friendly and were right on top of a PERFECT house for my mom in G.B. Thank you one and all.

We want you to know grateful we are to all at Barnbrook --Mary, Maureen, Kim and Dagmar, and and most particularly to Suzann Ward, for the patience, professionalism, and good nature she displayed in marketing and selling our Berkshire home. She worked with us in difficult economic times, facing a shaky second home market. At no time did she seem discouraged. She appreciated our quirky turn-of-the century house and always conveyed to us that the right buyer would also appreciate it. Suzann knows her territory. She helped us get through the thicket of regulations concerning septic systems, well testing, and fire department requirements. She took on a myriad of tasks, even meeting with the fire chief to determine what we needed in the way of new smoke alarms --and then serving as our purchasing agent. She contacted the Board ofHealth to make sure we could get an extension on our Title V (septic system) certificate. From radon remediation to staging the house to helping us get packed up and moved out, Suzann knew what to do and whom to contact. Most of all, she treated us with respect. She certainly earned ours. We recommend her to prospective buyers and sellers, without hesitation or reservation.
Maureen is terrific! She "got" us and what we were looking for right away. After just 2 days of looking with her we found the perfect house. We had looked for months before in other locations. She also helped us set up contractors, etc... since she seems to know everyone in the area.
Maureen was great to work with throughout the buying process. She quickly understood what we were looking for and was always very responsive. She understands the local market and was very helpful from our initial meeting though the final negotiations and closing. I found Maureen to be honest and trustworthy and great to work with.
I have known Maureen for over 10 years. Due to a variety of circumstances, I am not yet ready to purchase but that has not stopped Maureen from always immediately being willing to help me on the housing search. Over the years, she has assisted with listing and selling homes of both friends and family members and her attention to detail and commitment is unparalleled. This has never decreased and I look forward to working with Maureen once we are ready to purchase a new home.
Our experience with Maureen White-Kirby was superior in every aspect. Maureen guided us through a rental process so that we could become familiar with the area. She recommended the perfect rental and neighborhood for our family. She then helped us to find a house we wanted to purchase. We took a long time to make an offer, and Maureen helped us to gather all of the information we required before entering into negotiations. Maureen was patient, informative, and responsive while we were looking and considering, and assertive, wise, and strong when we shifted into making an offer. She guided us expertly through our mortgage and closing process and has helped us after closing any time we have asked. We give Maureen our highest recommendation.
