Testimonials

Maggie is a true professional, an expert in her field and a pleasure to work with. Maggie's experience and guidance, as well as her knowledge of the market, proved invaluable to us as homebuyers. We would give our highest recommendation to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home on Long Island.
M. & R. Gabel, Port Washington

There is no one better than Maggie Keats. She knows how to market one’s home and resolve inevitable issues as they arise. Between Maggie and her assistant Dana , they are responsive and know their markets and people very well. My husband and I are first time home owners now, thanks to Maggie and Dana. They came highly recommended and we could not have found a better team. As this was our first home purchase, we were very nervous about the whole process. They took their time getting to know our needs, what we were looking for in a community and town before showing us houses. When we found the right house, they made sure that our offer was the one that would be accepted. Their knowledge, skill and respect from fellow agents landed us the perfect home. We couldn't be happier!
M. Ratazzi & C. Buckovich, Port Washington

We had an excellent experience with Maggie. We were moving from the City and were first time home buyers when we met Maggie and she helped us find and buy our home on the North Shore of Long Island. Maggie is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and on top of the market. She is also very patient and understanding. We saw many houses, a few more than once, and she was always flexible and accommodating. We continue to have a relationship and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.
J. & E. Friedman, Port Washington

S. & J. Kreichman, Sands Point

We loved working with Maggie! When we started looking for a home in Port Washington it was our first major purchase, which comes with a lot of stress and anxiety. Maggie was instrumental in keeping us calm and focused and picked up our likes (and dislikes) so quickly. She found us the perfect home for our family in the perfect neighborhood. She was a phenomenal negotiator and a true professional. We would highly recommend Maggie in a heartbeat!

E. & V. Dunleavy, Port Washington

I owned an Historic home, unique in our area. The sale was challenging but Maggie persevered and found us a buyer who appreciated the beauty and value of our home. All along the way she kept in continuous touch and helped us make decisions that were needed to promote value and find the right buyer!!! Maggie is indeed a professional and made a difficult process smooth and comfortable.

S. Markovics, East Hills

We felt incredibly lucky to find Maggie Keats and have her guidance, support, and expertise in this process. We were first time home-buyers moving out of NYC and into the suburbs. She made sure we felt comfortable and knowledgeable about the town and educated about the process ahead of us. She never pressured us into purchasing a home that wasn't right for us. Once we found the home we wanted she helped us navigate a very competitive market and bidding situation to get the house. Even now after the deal has been completed Maggie has been there to help us get settled into our new town. I could not recommend her more highly!

Melissa Bitalvo, Port Washington

ggie is the best of the best. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the areas that she covers, is always available to her clients and gives great advice. She has been a huge help to my husband and me and I know we'll refer her to friends in the future.

R. & D. Gaspar, Sands Point

Maggie was incredible throughout the process! She knows the area better than anyone. Having been to many open hoses that Maggie hosted before our move she is AMAZING at showing as well. She's smart and tough negotiator and also a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with. We were very fortunate to sell one home and purchase another with her. I couldn't recommend her more!

A & J. Shields, Port Washington

Maggie, was extremely knowledgeable and responsive in guiding us through the process of buying a home. She was a pleasure to work with and is a true professional in her business. Would highly recommend Maggie and we will definitely do business with her again.

J. & C. Tick, Port Washington

There is no question in my mind. Without the guidance of Maggie Keats, my wife and I would have never found our home. Not only does she know Port Washington and the surrounding areas like the back of her hand, we knew we could count on Maggie for the truth. How many real estate agents tell you when not to bid on something? With Maggie, its not about the bottom line. It's about caring for the client, helping them through the process and building a relationship that lasts long after closing. Moving and buying a house can be overwhelming. It doesn't need to be, not when you are working with the right person. Maggie Keats is that person. I'll always be thankful to Maggie. Not only did we find a home, we also gained a friend.

Michael Bitalvo, Port Washington

Maggie is a true professional - exceptional local knowledge, strong process expertise and a terrific personality. She was instrumental in our family being able to purchase our incredible house in Sands Point. She helped get what was a challenging transaction across the finish line and we would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home on Long Island!

B. & J. Spielman, Sands Point

Maggie was instrumental in helping my wife and I find our house in Port Washington. She, in a very timely fashion, showed us numerous homes at various price points. She was incredibly knowledgeable and thoughtful while not pushing us at all. She led us to the perfect house, helped secure a successful negotiation and guided us carefully through the closing process. We still keep in contact regularly with her as she lives locally and has an infinite amount of resources! We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the area.

S & A. Arnold, Port Washington

Maggie is world class! She has been an amazing partner on our home finding journey and made us feel as if we were her only clients. She is truly one of a kind and helped us with every single detail from start to finish including making sure we had gas set up prior to our renovation and helping us find the perfect interior designer! Maggie is a pleasure to spend Sundays with and is incredibly knowledgeable. A true expert in every sense of the word!

J. & W. Shtainer, East Hills

We bought our house with Maggie as the listing broker. She was awesome throughout the process! I love that I often run into her in town and she is always happy to see me, and I, her. The fact that not only does she know my boys’ names but actually knows who they are shows she really cares about the people she works with. I am always looking for chances to tell people about her. She is awesome!!!

D. & B. Tane, Port Washington

Maggie Keats is a true professional. I had the pleasure of working with Maggie on the sale of my home and the purchase of a new home in Port Washington. She knows the market very well, advocates in your best interest, and is a pleasure to work with. No one works harder than Maggie and her results prove it. I highly recommend Maggie to help you sell your home or find you a new one!

E. & R. O’Sullivan, Port Washington

Maggie Keats = The Best!!! We recently sold our house through Maggie and she was amazing from day one until the closing. She goes above and beyond in every way for her clients. Maggie is thorough, detailed, honest, prepared, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to be with. She was always there to answer any questions or to help navigate any part of the home selling process. Maggie is a professional with a wealth of knowledge and experience and also is simply a wonderful person! If you want the best, go with the best -- Maggie Keats is IT! E. & M. Aronow, Sands PointMaggie is in a class by herself. We are very fortunate to have her as our advisor. She is smart, knowledgable, creative and a pleasure to work with. She instills confidence. She is hard working, attentive, patient, warm and caring. She is an outstanding advocate. She is a good listener and focuses on what's important to you. She has a wonderful way about her and a wealth of resources. Maggie has been recognized as the best and she is.

J. & S. Goldberg, Manhasset

If you are looking for a real estate pro, look no further. Maggie is simply the best. She is an expert on just about everything a prospective buyer or seller might need -- but that's not all -- she is kind, honest, extremely hard working and just a pleasure to work with. She consistently goes the extra mile, always with a smile. She took the time to learn what we were after and helped us to find a really great house despite a very long wish list. Buying or selling a house can be daunting. Don't make a mistake before you start -- do yourself a favor and call Maggie.

S. & T. Grossman

Ms. Keats negotiated the sale of my "old" house and diligently pursued and secured a "new" residence. I have spent my life as a developer of residential real estate, and Maggie Keats is the best agent I have dealt with over 60 years. She is totally professional and a pleasure to deal with.

R. & J. Bernhardt

There were a lot of good brokers to select from in Port Washington. We put six agents through an extensive interview process. At the end of our interview we felt Maggie would be best for us and She WAS best. We selected Maggie as our "representative," in every sense of the word (not just from a real estate perspective). Maggie has outstanding market knowledge (she was able to discuss/compare each current listing against our home) which was critical in developing a price; she is very responsive - returning calls while on holiday vacation; very disarming and personable (great for buyers/brokers) but can be a bulldog when needed; very knowledgeable; spent huge amounts of time with professional photographer; gave us the exposure across all mediums that our home needed to correctly market it; she walked us through the entire transaction, which went very smoothly. Most of wall we made a new friend. Maggie is genuine, sincere and a pleasure to work with. There is no one else I would hire. You would be doing yourself an injustice if you didn't meet her.

E. & C. Bellon, Port Washington

Working with Maggie was a wonderful experience--she is a true professional--knowledgeable, personable and considerate. Maggie made herself 100% accessible to us, was responsive, and always kept one step ahead which helped us find our home. I will turn to her for all my future real estate needs have referred friends and family to her without hesitation, and will continue to do so.

E. & D. Messina, Port Washington

Maggie knows her field and for us, relieved quite a bit of stress I know is prevalent in finding a new home. We stuck by Maggie and several years after she helped us find our dream home, with two additions to the family, Maggie negotiated the successful sale of our home and helped us find our new home. Her skills are unmatched and Maggie's bright personality only adds to the positive experience.

E. & E. Tonorezos, Manhasset, NY

Maggie is an exceptional real estate broker. She patiently helped us search for our first home for one year. She is knowledgeable, professional, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. She provided us with her honest opinion of many properties and various locations. And, when we found our home, she guided us through the process with expert advice, was always available, and made the deal happen. Maggie also has a deep network of real estate service professionals, home contractors, and friendly community members. She takes pleasure in connecting people. It’s easy to recommend Maggie, because she’s the best.

B. & C. Goldberg, Port Washington

My wife and I have very specific taste and were focused on finding the right house in a geographically restricted area where little housing supply existed. Maggie's unparalleled market knowledge combined with a down-to-earth understanding of what we, as buyers really wanted was invaluable to turning this difficult task into the reality of closing on our house. We love Maggie.

J. & D. Scheinberg, Sands Point

We were so fortunate to have found Maggie to sell our house. She took complete control, giving us small things we could do to improve the overall look of an old house. She arranged everything so that the photos were perfect. Maggie made everything easy, including using her negotiation expertise to get us a great result. I highly recommend Maggie for anyone looking for real estate expertise.

C. Pines, Port Washington

We would highly recommend Maggie Keats. She sold our house in Port Washington. She was realistic and honest about how we should price our house. We were very comfortable working with her. She is dedicated, very professional and made the entire transaction flow smoothly.

P. & M Giacalone, Port Washington

Maggie is a highly skilled professional with far reaching and thoughtful ideas about how to maximize the value of your home. She is an uber expediter and will walk you thru the entire process. Not just efficient, she's also sympathetic and helpful far beyond the scope of her required duties as a realtor. No one could have possibly made the process easier. The fact that my home's profits exceeded my expectations was due solely to her vision and skilled negoations. Thank you Maggie!

J. Hill, Port Washington

We took a while to find our dream home, and Maggie was patient and absolutely wonderful. She took us out week after week. She is very helpful, an astute negotiator and and amazing source of information. She is simply the BEST!

F. & E. Tuminelli, Muttontown

My husband and I were recommended to Maggie through good friends who worked with her on the purchase of their new home. They looked for over 3 years and Maggie stuck with them, so I knew from the beginning, she had patience. And since we didn't really know what we wanted, where we really wanted to live or what the heck we were doing, we figured Maggie wouldn't mind working with us too. We spoke once or twice on the phone before we started looking at houses and from the minute we met Maggie, I knew she would find us our dream home. Throughout the entire search, bid, negotiation, contract, inspection, and closing, Maggie acted with the highest level of professionalism. She anticipated the next move as only an experienced agent could. She listened and gave solid, sound advice. When our deal almost went south, it was Maggie who put things into perspective and fought like hell to get it done. Needless to say, my family is very happy in our home and will always think of Maggie for our real estate needs.

R. & A. Broege, Oyster Bay

Maggie is superb in all aspects. Really the best. We go out of our way to recommend her to friends who are looking in the area. A rare find. Trust her implicitly.

L. D. & R. S., Manhasset, NY

Maggie puts her heart and soul into helping you buy or sell your home. She is very nice and personable and above all very professional. I loved having Maggie as our broker. She got us a clean deal at top dollar. I would recommend her to everyone.

M. Adams, Manhasset

Maggie is always professional and pleasant to deal with. She has creative ideas and is prepared to listen to her clients. Her local knowledge is extensive and she has a huge rolodex of tradespeople and professionals who can help make your home more attractive and saleable.

S. & M. Erlich, Sands Point

Maggie Keats is the best broker I have ever worked with! She is honest, extremely hard working, smart, and responsive. Buyers and sellers always praise her. She has extensive contacts in all professions for whatever arises.

R. Rockower, Esq.

Getting ready to put one's home on the market, while hopefully not life or death, is certainly everything it's cracked up to be. We are so grateful that we followed our neighbor's lead and listed our home with Maggie Keats, the top producer for Douglas Elliman. From her very first visit with us, Maggie instilled confidence in the home-selling process. While her listings range from the hundred thousands to the many millions and ours was certainly under a million, Maggie Keats handled our home sale with the same zeal and expertise that she clearly has for all her clients. At the very beginning, Maggie went through our home, using our pieces and adding her touches to our home that only added to its appeal. Communication was key and we always felt respected whenever she called to let us know she was scheduling a showing and with follow-up. Because of her keen knowledge of the market, we completely trusted her judgement when it came to price point and going to contract. Having Maggie Keats represent the sale of our home certainly and without question alleviated anticipated stress. We whole heartedly recommend Maggie Keats without reservation and with great confidence in her abilities as one of the top real estate brokers in the area.

K. & R. Emerman

My wife and I were expecting our second child and were the typical uber-researching, opinionated, and generally difficult young couple, looking to move out to the ‘burbs. Thankfully, we met Maggie and she showed us every house in the area that met our criteria, always with a smile on her face. All throughout, to finally getting the (incredibly challenging) deal closed, she was responsive, compassionate and, frankly, brilliant. She has an eye for value & quality and understands that a home is not just a home but also an investment. In fact, I continue to call her to pick her brain about real estate opportunities. She is an exceptional broker I recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell.

S. & D. Todorovich, Flower Hill

We worked with Maggie both on the sale of our former home and the purchase of our new homesite. Representing us as sellers, she excelled on all fronts: marketing our home for maximum exposure, making sure prospective buyers were qualified, and finally, negotiating tirelessly to get us the best price and a smooth deal. In our purchase, Maggie worked as our partner, sharing our vision and helping us to identify the optimum location on which to build our dream home. All of this and she kept us within our budget, was always available, and, was a delight to deal with. We recommend her unequivocally.

S. & T. Milillo, Sands Point

As you know, when we first started looking for a condo, we thought the way to go was to deal with the individual listing brokers at different houses, but after a few months of chaos and no progress, and, a lot of extra work on our part, we realized no one really had our best interests at heart. We are so grateful you were referred to us. You took care of us like family. Once we put ourselves in your capable hands, we couldn’t imagine going through this process any other way. Thank you!

J. & L. Broad, Jericho

My husband and I both truly enjoyed working with Maggie. She is extremely knowledgeable, detailed oriented and a real pleasure to be around. We looked at many homes together, first with another broker who didn’t click with us, and then with Maggie, and each home Maggie showed us brought us closer and closer to our dream house. When we finally found the house we had been looking for Maggie did everything possible to help us close the deal. From the beginning to the bitter end she was there for us providing the information we needed and great advice. Maggie started out as our real estate broker but we now count her among our friends and make sure to recommend her to anyone we know who is interested in buying or selling a house.

A. & J. Nash, Port Washington

Upon strong referral from friends, we hired Maggie Keats as our real estate agent. We can honestly say that we have never experienced an agent who is as competent and always there for you. She goes out of her way to serve you and is extremely pleasant to work with. Outside her extended knowledge of the real estate market, she also guides you through the entire process from inspections to legal and financials. If you are not familiar with the area she will introduce you to all the amenities. We highly recommend working with Maggie Keats.

J & N S Port Washington

Even though my husband and I closed on our new Lloyd Harbor house over two months ago, we still think almost daily about Maggie Keats, who helped us find this incredibly personal, wonderful home.We met Maggie last winter after our acquaintances, her recent clients, highly recommended her. Coming off of twenty years of rental apartments, I found the prospect of searching for my own suburban paradise daunting. With my first phone call to Maggie, I instantly felt more comfortable. After we explained our highly specific aesthetic, architectural, and cultural preferences, she capably helped us narrow down our geographic areas of interest. Even though one of those areas (the Cold Spring Harbor school district) was in Suffolk, and therefore outside her usual radius, she did the requisite homework necessary to make her an expert in those neighborhoods as well.As it happens, the very first house to which Maggie took us was the one about which we were most enthusiastic. Even though we were smitten with it, and I was only half-joking about making a bid on the spot, she wisely encouraged us to see more houses for comparison. This was just the first instance of Maggie's obvious interest in our actual happiness, not just her own financial bottom line. By preemptively pointing out subtle drawbacks of some expensive properties we visited, she repeatedly proved her veracity rather than voraciousness as a realtor. We did wind up making a bid on the first house about six weeks after first seeing it, and began negotiations. Maggie personally liaised with us and the sellers' broker even though she was out of town, rather than pawning us off to an associate. Unfortunately, although our offer was accepted, we discovered a material issue with the house during our inspection, before going to contract, and the deal fell through. We resumed looking at houses. Ultimately, we saw roughly forty properties in all! Maggie never conveyed impatience with us, or made us feel any less important than clients who were buying or selling at higher price points. She also provided us with ways of independently finding answers to questions about the "feel" of the towns we were considering--for example, her own acquaintances and friends of friends. She also assisted us in our strategy for broaching the sellers from the dead deal, whose house we never stopped thinking about. When we reached a new deal with them, she helped negotiate the with the various (difficult) personalities involved. So, yes: We ultimately moved into that very first house! And even after we closed, Maggie still went the extra mile by helping us get connected with various resources (e.g., landscapers, contractors, physicians) in our new town. She has demonstrated over and over again that she is not only a consummate professional but also a caring, conscientious mensch: a true advocate for her clients. On a more personal note, she is warm, smart, and funny--the perfect companion for the sometimes stressful, tedious work of scoping out properties.

J. & A. Cahn, Lloyd Harbor

Maggie Keats was an absolute pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly to help us find our dream home and continued her efforts guiding us through the complicated details of our 1031 exchange all the way from inspections to the signing of our contract to final closing. Every step during what can normally be a very tiring and scary process Maggie performed like a true professional. She always goes above and beyond!

A. & G. Dariotis, Manhasset

• A great job opportunity left our family with the prospect of selling our dream house a year after we bought it. There was absolutely no question that we would turn to Maggie Keats, who had sold us the house, to handle this sale, too. Maggie managed all aspects personally, so we did not have to worry about a thing. She sold our house quickly, at an amazing price, and got us through a potentially very stressful time easily and profitably! We are hoping to come back in a few years and Maggie will be our first call (after our parents!).

T&X T. Port Washington

• We worked with Maggie for a long time to find just the right house that would suit our family, and fit our budget. We came to realize that maybe our taste exceeded our wallet! Maggie was not only patient throughout the process, but creative in finding us a solution that in the end, got us our dream house. Her knowledge of the market and her relationships with other brokers in the area were priceless to us. She is now the “official broker” for all our friends & family!

• Corporate transfers have led us to relocate several times; our most recent move was to NY and we had the great fortune to have found Maggie. Working long distance from CA, we relied on her for a lot. Maggie offers an incredible knowledge of the area and its houses, yet it’s her warmth, enthusiasm, and high energy level that made our search so memorable. She clearly loves what she does, and she’s great at it. As experienced homebuyers, we have worked with many brokers in several states but our experience with Maggie was by far our best. We hope to stay put for a while, but when we have need for a broker again, we would call Maggie in a heartbeat!
