From our first conversation to our last with Celine, it was clear to us that she was focused, thorough, deeply experienced and committed to finding what we were looking for. She took on board every detail of what we needed and her showings corresponded precisely to properties that would fit us well. So in the end we didn’t have to spend a lot of time and we couldn’t be happier with the home we found. It was such a pleasure to have all our questions addressed promptly and to know that her advice was sound. We recommend her highly!Stephanie and Andrew Thomas
Celine Muldowney of Stone Ridge Properties, Inc. is a consummate real estate professional. She was a pleasure to work with and we recommend her services without reservation. We worked with Celine from March to June 2021 in our move from the South Shore to the North Shore of Boston. The housing market during that time was incredibly chaotic. Desirable houses typically sold in a few hours or days for as much as six-figure amounts over asking price, with no contingencies and, at times, sight unseen. In these crazy conditions, Celine guided us through viewings, creatively adapted offer tactics and expertly managed our purchase process. During the three months of our house hunt, we submitted bids on five houses and successfully purchased a wonderful new home in an ideal location. Celine combines the highest integrity with deep experience and a keen sense for negotiation strategies and tactics. She is unflappable. She listens well and offers her opinion without telling you what to think or do. She is deferential but not wishy-washy. She is well connected and likeable. We completely trusted her to act in our best interests. Throughout our search for a new home (which was, at times, an ordeal) our best decision was our first one: to work with Celine. We are very appreciative of her help in every aspect of our successful real estate purchase.Anita and Morrie
Celine did a great job for us. She knew how to position our family’s home for market, price it competitively, and generate interest. From start to finish – including connecting us with vendors who refreshed the interior, placing it on the market with a bang, and negotiating with prospective buyers – Celine led us through the process in a pro-active, responsive, and attentive manner. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an advocate and partner in selling their home on the North Shore.Jake and Cheryl
I would highly recommend Celine Muldowney for either purchasing or selling real estate in the Newburyport area. Our family hired Celine to help sell an estate property and she was very helpful throughout the entire process. She was always one step ahead and ready with answers as questions arose. She has a thorough knowledge of the market and what it takes to smoothly move from listing the property to sale an onward to closing. She is always calm and even tempered, even in stressful situations. This made our transaction seem effortless and relieved stress for our family. We would definitely hire Celine again should the need arise.Jeff Chase
Celine made the process of selling our family home of 50 years a breeze. As an estate sale coordinated long distance with Celine from my remote location, she was able to clearly communicate how to complete our sale. For the most part she took care of all aspects, notifying us in advance when our participation would be required. If your life has plenty of other commitments while also selling or purchasing a residential property, Celine would be the right choice to minimize the stress of that important step.Derek Ryan & Family – Formerly of Byfield
Celine’s performance and professionalism are unparalleled. Bottom line: She took care of every detail. I simply did what she told me to do. She got me $100,000 over my asking price.David Kerr
We can’t speak highly enough about working with Celine! She handled every detail of our home selling experience with expert care and efficiency. She’s 100% transparent, super reliable, and completely upfront about every step in the processFrances and Robert Heimann
Celine was a pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable and walked us through each step of the process, answering our questions until we were comfortable. We appreciated her openness and honesty (even when she knew it might not be what we wanted to hear…but what we needed to know). I would work with her again and recommend her too!Kate Wilson and Patrick Burns
We had a great experience working with Celine. She provided us with great advice that led us to buying a single family property. Not only she was great in explaining and guiding us through all the steps of the purchasing process in a timely manner, she also provided us with great market insight within the characteristics we were looking for in a house.Ruben and Lauren
Working with Celine was hands down the best decision we made on our adventure to buy a home. Being first-time homebuyers is stressful as it is but mix that with a global pandemic and an extremely competitive market, and finding our home should’ve been a nightmare — but because we had Celine it was just the opposite. Throughout our search, she never wavered in her commitment to helping us find the right place. Celine was responsive, thoughtful, incredibly knowledgeable, and an absolute joy to work with. It truly felt like we had a friend or family member guiding us through the process, and we ultimately found the perfect home for us. If you get the chance, don’t hesitate to work with Celine to buy or sell your home. You won’t regret it!Chris and Greer
Where to begin! We did not have any intentions on moving until we found an opportunity to build a new home out of state. As a result, we needed to consult with a realtor to put our house on the market almost immediately. Celine was timely, responsive, and supportive. Within days, she provided us with a complete market analysis, offered a few recommendations on how to prepare our home for the market, had professional photographs taken and listed our home within two weeks. From there, she established open house dates and provided multiple showings. Celine provided reassurance, client feedback as well as feedback from her colleagues. Within two and a half months, the process was complete! Celine was genuinely interested in helping us attain our goal and she creatively, with perseverance and critical thinking, made it happen! Two and a half months later, she continues to show an interest in the development of our new home. Now that’s genuine! Thank you, Celine!
Thank you, Celine for your help with our family home search. While obviously a very exciting time for everyone, it is also confusing and at times can become unsettling. Moving out of your family home after twenty years, the only house that your kids have known as home, is a stressful time for everyone involved. What we appreciated was that Celine seemed to know both our excitement and our stress, which built a level of confidence that created a great, trustful relationship between Celine and our entire family. This relationship allowed us to move with complete confidence that we were moving into a beautiful new home, while also feeling that our home of two decades was dealt with fairly for all involved.
The home buying process has several twists and turns and our family could not be happier with the way that Celine managed both our process and also our expectations.Jill and Scott Borek
