Kally, Brighton, MA
I developed a relationship with Norman years ago when he helped us rent an apartment at my mother’s home. He was very professional. When the time came to sell my mother’s home, I didn’t hesitate, I called Norman O’Grady. I found him to be honest, understanding, and very professional. The home immediately went under agreement. Norman was always available to recommend and meet people at the home for maintenance and cleaning appointments etc. I definitely recommend Norman. We were very pleased with the entire process.

“After unsuccessful weeks of trying to sell my condo, I turned to Norman O’Grady. I would like to take this time in thanking Norman in selling my condo and would definitely use his services again in the future.”
Chevon J. Boston, MA
Norman’s transparency and warmth are genuine. I was new to the home buying process and Norman helped me every step of the way. He ensured that my questions were answered in a prompt and professional manner.
Ivylee M. Natick, MA
Norman really knows the Brighton market. He got our condo sold for us. He made sure it was staged appropriately and provided us with a clear understanding of the selling process. Based on his many years of experience, our condo was priced well, we had multiple offers, and it sold within a week! I recommend you call Norman O’Grady when you need to sell your home.
L. Ma Brighton, MA
We had a very pleasant experience with Prime Realty Group when we purchased our house. Mr. O’Grady was extremely considerate and helpful. Negotiation were smooth, we closed the deal within a short time, moved into our new house before the school year. I recommend Mr. O’Grady to any friends who want to buy a house in the Boston area.
Kevin T. Somerville, MA
Norman O’Grady was our agent when we purchased our new home. He sat with us for hours and answered all our questions. Every call and email was promptly returned. He’s accessible and professional. When visiting houses with him he noticed many things that we wouldn’t have known to look for. He never tried to steer us towards something that wasn’t right for us. Norman stayed with us all the way through the final walk through and the closing. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying property.
Snezhana V. Randolph, MA
My husband and I had absolutely no idea what we were getting ourselves into, when we decided to purchase a home of our own. Norman O’Grady stood by our side all along the process, was very pro-active, and attentive to our needs. I want to say a big thank you to Prime Realty Group for making our dream come true! They really know what they are doing and could connect you to great professionals to help along the way.
Brett R. Brighton, MA
Norman knows his stuff and is a pleasure to work with. He knows the Brighton area like no one else and his connections seem to be never ending. This means he can take care of you no matter what your real estate needs. I recently called him for a recommendation as I was looking to refinance. Of course he had a quick suggestion and I’m nearly to closing now.
Nancy C. Brighton, MA
We solda family house /property through the good efforts of Norman O’Grady at Prime Realty Group. Norm is a seasoned, knowledgeable professional. He knows the Brighton area well and he knows how to do his job. Norm and I worked well together…and he sold that property in ONE DAY! I would recommend Norman O’Grady in a blink!
Alison R. Brighton, MA
Norman at Prime Realty was both helpful and knowledgeable as an agent. He put me at ease when selling my condo and buying a house all within 3 months! I am grateful for the advice he gave and it was a pleasure working with him.
Danielle Dang Brighton, MA
Norman has been very instrumental, professional, in helping us getting the property sold in record time (2 days after it was listed and on the first open house). We took Norman’s advice on getting the place ready and he is a very patient realtor.
Dayong Wu Allston, MA
Norman is simply the best Realtor I have ever known. In the first meeting he collected all the essential information on the property I was to sell and asked my expectation about price. After that Norman did a thorough research and provided a list of similar properties recently sold and those on sale. Based on this, he suggested a list price higher than what I initially asked for. He than explained his plan and strategy for the selling process. He suggested several things I needed to do before the open house, some of which I would never have paid attention to. Only later on did I appreciate how valuable his advise was. After one open house we received multi offers and we easily picked the highest, which was higher than our asking price. In the following inspection, negotiations for minor compensation, until the closing, Norman provided tremendous help, which made everything go through very well. I highly recommend Norman to anyone who wants to sell his/her property.
Jim Hatherly, MA.
Very professional and effective in a complicated estate sale. Norman was the right Realtor at the right time. Our Thanks, Jim
Veeda Rafea, Dallas, TX (Out-of-Town Seller)
“I would like to express my real satisfaction with Norman O’Grady’s real estate service. As an out-of-state home owner without any ties to the local market, I was very uncertain of how I could effectively place my property on the market and achieve a positive outcome in a relatively short time. Yet, Norman’s real estate services allowed me to achieve that exactly. The property was honestly evaluated, the pre-sale activities were all of superb quality and communication with me was excellent. More importantly, there were jobs to be done to make my condo ready for sale and Norman himself willingly contacted people and took care of everything so perfectly with very reasonable charges as if this was his own condo. In the end, I sold my condo close to asking price in a relatively short time and I could not be happier with the outcome. I strongly recommend Norman’s real estate service if you plan to sell your property.”
Edward Dosik, Potomac, MD (Out-of-Town Seller)
“I am very pleased to write this letter describing our professional experience with Prime Realty Group on the sale of my late aunt’s home. As an out-of-town seller, we had a very short period of time to make decisions concerning my aunt’s financial affairs. After interviewing several firms familiar with the submarket, your company distinguished itself in one very important aspect. From our thirty minute conversation at the property, it was readily apparent that you had the knowledge and the capability to manage the process for our transaction. An uneventful closing indicates that work of many people was orchestrated and coordinated in advance and hurdles resolved before the day of settlement. In our transaction, you also devised a successful plan to show the home with personalized touches so that the buyer could envision themselves living in their new home or redecorating it in their mind as they toured the property. My professional career has included many purchases and sales of commercial real estate. Managing the process and sustaining the forward momentum is a vital element toward completing a successful transaction. Your firm did just that and separated yourself from the field of other qualified residential brokers.”
Derrick Campbell, MA
“This was my second home purchase and first home sale. The sale of my condo went very smoothly – we sold it after the first open house to someone who offered us a price only $5k below what we were asking. I definitely felt like Norman did a much better job of creating an attractive listing than other realtors did for similarly priced condos. He took more photos, and did it at a time of day when the lighting was good, and even took pictures of the common areas of the building. If you look at current listings for condos online, you’ll notice that a lot of agents don’t do this. For the purchase of our home, Norman’s team did a fantastic job of handling any bumps in the road and ensuring a smooth transaction. We bought a post foreclosure home, and due to the nature of the foreclosure proceedings, it was a very complicated transaction. Norman and Ellie Vining, the attorney he normally works with, stayed on top of everything throughout the whole process and ensured that we closed on the purchase right on schedule. Everything worked out perfectly, and I would absolutely recommend Norman O’Grady to anyone buying or selling a house or condo.”
Irvin Curtis, Westwood, MA
“I want to tell you how pleased I am with the outcome of our recent real estate transaction. You efficiently and skillfully took charge of every detail, including clearing the title, arranging for staging, reviewing condo documents, arranging for smoke detectors, and everything else related to the sale. There was nothing left to chance. Your effective advertising and approach got us six qualified offers on the property after just one Open House. I was very impressed by this in these difficult economic times. You are a true professional, and I would recommend you highly to anyone.”
Virginia Birmingham, Watertown, MA
“Norman of Prime Realty Group was professional, knowledgeable and attentive to my needs as a “seller”. He was true to his word on every occasion, keeping me informed of what I was responsible for as well as what he was responsible for. The property sold quickly, based on Norman’s advice for preparation and pricing. I would refer Norman to friends or collegues interested in real estate purchase or sale without hesitation.”
Altagracia Marmolejos, Brighton, MA
“Norman, many thanks for all that you did for me. You were professional throughout the process and I want to express my gratitude for your assistance thru my first property purchase. You and the mortgage broker worked tirelessly to ensure that my loan was approved. My expectations were exceeded and I got everything I could image.”
Brent Thorne, Northville MI
“Norman, thank you and your staff for being very professional in this sale for 47 Hobson Street. Your presentation of the Brighton market was well prepared and gave us the needed information we needed to make some decisions and I thank you for that. Your knowledge of local vendors in the community like plumbers, electricians, floor refinishers, along with a good working relationship with city officials made the sale go extremely fast and easy. Taking your advice on some fix ups and hiring a professional house stager resulted in several offers. Net result, $21,000 over the asking price with a quick closing date. All the paperwork, inspections and behind the seen items were seamless. You provided us with the necessary management of the total sale process we needed and it was appreciated. Thank you!”
Ilene Cahan, Boca Raton, FL

“Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for helping us navigate the real estate waters of the 21st century. Your patience, guidance and problem solving were a great comfort to us. We will be happy to pass your name along as a man who does what he says he is going to do!”
Lionel W. Clark, Brighton, MA
“One of the services Norman’s office provided was to have an Interior Designer come into our home and stage it to maximize it’s appeal and thus maximize its value. I was pleasantly surprised to see the wonderful job the designer did to stage my home. It made my home warm and inviting and as a result led to an offer at the first open house. What a pleasure it was to work with Norman and the staff at Prime Realty Group. Their knowledge, experience and ethics made the process a pleasure.”
Rosemary Monz, Brighton, MA
“Thank you for your efforts which resulted in the sale of my home. You are truly a dedicated, highly professional and knowledgeable realtor. I would not hesitate recommending Prime Realty Group. Also, many thanks to Neil Eustice for the many hours and miles he spent helping me in a successful search for my new home.”
Kim LeQuire, Brighton, MA
“I wanted to take a moment to offer you my gratitude for all the work you did to make my dreams of owning my own home a reality. You showed tremendous patience with me during a turbulent time in the housing market and stuck with me long after most realtors would have moved on to other clients. In addition to the endless hours spent on the home search, you were also able to help me find a great mortgage broker and even went so far as to bring me a wonderful housewarming gift after I moved into my new home. I absolutely love my house and cannot imagine where I would be if you had not been there to help me. I will be so happy to offer your name to anyone I know searching for a home of their own and will not hesitate to call you should I decide to look for a new home in the future.”
Anthony Zambello, Lake Park, FL
“We are more than satisfied that Norman O’Grady was our realtor. He just completed the sale from start to finish. He was there to help us through the process and we thank him for that. He got us the best possible price we could get for the property. The choice we made to hire him as our realtor was fantastic. The sale was quick and he followed through with the rest of the process to closing. Again, thank you Norman.”
Colleen English, Brighton, MA
I moved to Brighton approximately 8 years ago when I purchased my condo. Throughout my time in Brighton I would see pictures of Norman everywhere in the newspapers, on billboards and open house signs. Three years ago I spoke to Norman who was selling a condo across the hall from mine, we spoke at length about property values and the pros and cons of renting versus selling my property in the future. I found Norman to be extremely professional and knowledgable about real estate in the Brighton area. This year I have moved to Bermuda to follow a dream, I was initially renting out my condo however it became a burden and I decided to sell. Despite the obstalce of me living overseas, he made the final sale a completely non-stressful event. Thank you Norman for your continuous hard work and I will definately recommend you again to anyone looking to buy or sell in your area.
Cynthia M. Volante, Esq., Belmont, MA

“In just three days from listing the house to accepting the offer, everything went as well as I could have hoped. Your computer work to figure out the correct lising price, your aggressive advertising, and of course your many contacts in the Real Estate world all made for a fast and profitable sale! I also appreciate your follow up in the weeks up to and after the closing. I have already recommended you to several people, and will continue to do so! Thanks again for everything.”

Mary and Ron Davies, MA
“Norman is a first class professional, dedicated to helping the seller and buyer to come to agreement.”
“After meeting with four local real estate companies we decided to list out home with Norman O’Grady and Prime Realty Group. One of the main reasons we chose Norman was his past experience selling and homes in this neighborhood, he had a system on marketing homes, he was realistic with the price and didn’t tell us what we wanted to hear but rather showed us the reasons why we should list at the price he suggested. His company also offered the services of an interior designer at no cost to us who would come into the home and stage it so it would show better, which made a big difference in my opinion to how it showed to potential buyers.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Norman O’Grady to sell your home and was very impressed with him and his services.”
“When I met Norman, my first impression was he had such a pleasant and friendly personality and seemed very optimistic about selling my house. He was very honest about things about the house- in such a way that I was comfortable right from the start. He kept me updated on all aspects. His professionalism was outstanding. And thanks to his help he sold my hose- I wish to thank Norman and his staff at Prime Realty for all their help and professionalism.”
“I would like to thank Norman and his staff for being so kind to me. My house was sold in about a week after it was put on the market. He did a great job.”
Richard J. Schrader
“I hired Norman O’Grady and Prime Realty Group to market and sell my condo here in Brighton. With the marketing pan that Norman presented to me it was inevitable that he would get the job done, but little did I know that he would have it under agreement with tin the first week on it’s going on the market when many units in my building are taking months to sell. Norman kept me updated each step of the transaction, through what seemed to be an endless list of things that had to be done once I accepted the offer.
I want to thank Norman and his staff at Prime Realty Group for making what could have been a very stressful time in my life a little less stressful. I would highly recommend Norman O’Grady to anyone who is looking for a professional, competent realtor. He get’s results… I’m sure that his advice had a lot to do with the speed of the sale, and now I am being helped with packing and with plans for the arrangement of my furniture in the new place. This is another great stress-reliever!”
