Her advice on pricing was right on the mark, responses to my questions and emails always prompt and there was no task too difficult to get the job done.

During our walkthrough prior to closing she was prepared for anything that came up and has even been able to recommend local business to us since we were new in the neighborhood.

From the very beginning she spent a ton of time with us, educating us about the home-buying process and the local area, and answering our endless questions. Maggie knows the area and the market inside and out, and has invaluable relationships with other local agents and professionals, which helped to make the process of making offers and negotiating very smooth. We also asked her to recommended various professionals that we used for our purchase transaction, including inspectors, attorneys, and mortgage bankers, and each one we selected was excellent. Maggie is also a pleasure to deal with, as is her team, and we felt totally comfortable and supported throughout the process. We knew Maggie would always be completely honest with us and tell us whether a house was a "good house" or one we should pass on, whether a price was appropriate, etc. Maggie has also been incredibly helpful since we moved into our home. We have reached out to her multiple times to ask for recommendations of contractors and other service providers and she has always immediately gotten back to us with extremely helpful recommendations, all of which have been stellar. Maggie has done this despite our purchase transaction being complete for months, which really speaks to her dedication to her clients and the way she does business.

DeMeo, Port Washington

"Where does one even begin to tell you what I feel about my experience going through this difficult process of putting this special place that I have called home for 51 years on the market for sale? What struck me most about our interviewing Maggie and her colleague Jill, was when Maggie said, "I love old homes". That is when I knew, she was the perfect person to entrust our home to be transferred to another loving family that would have as many loving memories as our family was blessed to have at 3 Hampton Road over the years. Because my sister and I, as co-executrixes, were charged to make decisions for 8 of us siblings, Maggie and Jill guided us through all that was involved in selling this home. Because my sister and I were not from the area, they gave contacts that helped us get the house ready for sale. Maggie also found the perfect family to continue the legacy that this house has provided our family. When I met the buyers I immediately felt in my heart that they were the family that I wanted to entrust this marvelous home to. My only wish has been answered, the legacy of this house will live on…"M. Chiades, Port Washington

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

“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, inspection, contract, 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 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. She was our second broker and with her guidance and stewardship, she got us to the closing table at a number we were quite happy to achieve.” 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. She rises above the rest.” 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 her ability to completely manage the home-selling process for us. While her listings range 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 enhance 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 wholeheartedly 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, Port Washington

“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

“When we first started looking for a condo, we thought the way to go was to deal with the individual listing brokers at different homes, 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 and chose you as our buyers’ broker, we couldn’t imagine going through this process any other way. We tell everyone: ‘Hire Maggie’! 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, 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 Smith 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!). X. Theodoropoulos, 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!” H&L Rabman Port Washington
