Testimonials

Very helpful in finding right house. Also helped every step of the process in buying the house. Even after buying advised about maintenance of the house.

PK 2022-06-19

Maura Rains was the perfect fit for our home buying process. She got to know our priorities and timeline and created a plan that worked for us and kept us up to date in a fast-moving market. She is extremely knowledgeable and provided us with excellent advice beginning with home tours until after closing. Her experience and connections were invaluable for a first-time home buyer. She went above and beyond with her time and energy and her attention to detail and thoroughness was a huge benefit to us. I felt that she truly cared about us and helped us find an amazing home. I cannot recommend her enough.

Gbur 2022-06-08

Maura is amazing. She is professional and kind but is always up-front and honest. She manages your expectations but reaches for the best possible outcome. She is incredibly communicative and has great attention to detail. I can say with confidence that without Maura, we would not have set a record in our neighborhood and received an over-ask offer. This is the second time we have used Maura, and cannot recommend her enough!

Michelle Norris 2022-05-28

Some people are born for certain professions. Many people lose their humanity on their way to success in that profession. Maura is not one of those people. As she helped me on my journey of buying my first home in America, I saw very well what her day looked like. That schedule is always condensed, and she is always smiling, helpful and willing to help. She patiently answered all my questions, and helped me better understand real estate vocabulary. I don't even know most of it in my mother language, and with Maura's selfless help, I learned about that in English. Even 2 months after the closing day and my first joy here, she finds time to check if everything is going according to plan, to go to different websites and check if the institutions have finished their part of the work. What more could I say about that woman and her commitment? Her work speaks for her. Thank you for being a professional, thank you for all the help, but above all THANK YOU for being such a great Human!

Karac 2022-05-24

Extremely responsive, attention to detail, goes beyond expectations. Excellent sense of staging a home for sale. Tremendous asset!

Marcia Wright Trust 2022-05-16

Maura was very helpful and caring during the whole process. As a first time home buyer, she helped fill in any spots I missed looking at different homes. Absolutely amazing person and would recommend anyone that was looking to buy a house, to speak with her.

TC 2022-05-16

Maura is simply the best realtor you can ask for. She is the ultimate professional, a great listener, incredibly knowledgeable about the market and all things real estate and she works tirelessly for her clients. I cannot reiterate that last point enough. She works so hard. My wife and I were anxious first time buyers, moving from a different part of the country to an ultra competitive market, with a short buying window. Maura guided us through it all and helped us find a place we love. She came as a referral and I am so grateful that she was our realtor!

J.W. 2022-04-24

Maura made the experience of buying and selling our home so amazing! She is knowledgeable, quick to respond, and always made us feel like she was looking out for our best interest. She is the best!!

Professional who makes things happen! Most importantly she likes cars and drives a cool one! Thank you again Maura!

K.S. 2022-03-10

Maura Rains is the best, the very best, at what she does. We have done three transactions with her, and she is always spot-on in her recommendations and advise. I trust her expertise, her kindness and her efficiency. I will always use Maura for my Southeast Michigan real estate transactions.

Ann Watson 2022-03-06

Fantastic from start to finish! Maura is professional, friendly, experienced, and a joy to work with. We have done three real estate transactions with her in the last three years, and every time, she delivers with style and aplomb. A rock star realtor!

Watson 2022-02-25

Maura Rains is a phenomenal realtor! Her calm and reassuring demeanor were really helpful during this stressful time of selling and purchasing a new home. Her attention to detail and always being available were outstanding. Maura should be the prototype for Reinhart real estate agents!

Noel Rivera 2022-01-16

Choosing Maura as your realtor will be the best decision you make! Maura helped us navigate the area we wanted to live as out of towners seamlessly. Maura took the time to get to know us to make the house hunting process tailored to us- we really feel like it helped us find our perfect fit. Her professionalism and responsiveness was beyond our expectations. We were also impressed with her incredible interior and exterior home knowledge (roofs, siding, grading of yards, flooring, HVAC system, etc). We thoroughly enjoyed working with Maura and would highly recommend her!

McLaughlin Family 2021-10-28

Maura is the best ever! She always acts in her customer’s best interest and she always delivers no matter how tough the situation is. Maura has serviced me and my parents and I will continue referring my forever realtor (although I hope I don’t have to do this again for a very long time:)

TN 2021-10-27

I am so grateful to have worked with Maura during the craziness that was the Seller's Market of 2021. I can't count the number of times my partner and I looked at each other and said "Maura is absolutely fantastic." She even became known on a first-name basis to my family and friends. There was never a doubt in my mind that I was in good hands with Maura to guide me over this process. I am in awe of her particular ability to suss out whether a home is worth its cost, not just the listing price but by doing some fast math after our walk through to know whether the renovation costs would put a house out of my budget. She is remarkably time efficient and like other reviewers have noted, responsive. I don't mean to stay up late but I would text Maura random thoughts at 11pm and see her reply first thing the next morning (eventually I discovered the "schedule message" function on my phone and figured out how to make my texts look like they were sent first thing in the morning, too!) While I appreciated her knowledge and experience of course, over time I came to appreciate her care, mentorship, and kind words, too, or maybe even more. I was a first-time home buyer, and very cautious when it comes to making decisions, in that I generally need more time than the average person to feel comfortable with proceeding. Not conducive to this market! But I always looked forward to seeing Maura and I always felt confident in myself and my choices afterwards. I think the biggest gift she gave me was giving me the space to figure out what I wanted or needed, and support along the way to make choices as I grew more comfortable to. The house I eventually bought was a no-brainer after the walk through, and at the start of the home buying process I wouldn't have thought that I could get to a point of saying "Yes" so quickly. Maura is definitely to credit with some of that! On a last note, and something that probably only tangentially has to do with real estate/her work, Maura is an intentional community builder, and the world needs more of those. Forget being a good realtor, Maura is just a good person to have in your life.

Isabelle 2021-10-13

Maura was excellent for both buying and selling. She helped us find exactly what we were looking for, in our price range, in a very competitive buyer's market. We only visited two houses before finding the right match, so she clearly paid attention to what we wanted and focused her search accordingly. When selling our other house, we arranged a very specific setup for a long weekend of showings plus an open house while we were away, as with our hectic schedules and several children, it is extremely difficult to maintain a clean home. By the end of the long weekend, we had four offers, all over asking price. We couldn't have asked for a better and more accommodating experience. Maura was excellent communicating with us and helping ensure all inspections, paperwork, etc were completed on time without surprises. She communicated with other parties' realtors effectively, had insightful knowledge regarding good and bad situations, and generally kept our ship pointed in the right direction. Lastly, Maura is an energetic, warm, caring person who sincerely loves her work and genuinely enjoys seeing her clients' goals met. Although we plan to stay in our new home for several years, if we were to move in this area again there is no question that we would look to Maura first for our realty needs.

Jon 2021-10-11

I can’t say enough good things about Maura. We were moving from out of state and trying to buy our first house remotely in a town we were unfamiliar with. We had no idea where to start to even find a realtor so we just looked online for someone with good reviews. Maura had a lot of great reviews and we soon realized that there was as reason for that. She provided us with tons of information, was extremely responsive and available for all of our questions, and took us through the entire process while we were a thousand miles away. She provided videos and comments on houses as well as standing in for us for inspections and the like when we were not able to make them. I really can’t recommend her enough for anyone looking to purchase a house.

Galen 2021-10-04

Maura Rains is a force of nature! She is a fierce advocate for her clients. As first time buyers going the new construction route no less, we were completely at sea but Maura was our anchor. Throughout the process she was dedicated, available, communicative, a fount of knowledge, and an indispensable resource. She sets a high bar for realtors everywhere! Thank you, Maura!

AJG 2021-10-02

Maura Rains is a great realtor. She understands the market and was able to get us above asking price. Most importantly, she is very detailed oriented and always on standby to make sure the property was taken care of while we were going through the closing process. Maura followed up and made sure important steps, information, or deadlines were not missed. We enjoyed working with Maura and highly recommend her!

PC 2021-09-30

She is an excellent realtor and a wonderful person. Any question that we had she answered. Also she returned our message and phone calls very quickly. Yes we will recommend to anyone who is interested in buying or want to sale a house. Thank you Maura for all your help

Sandra Cuevas 2021-09-01

Maura was fantastic from start to finish during the sale of our house. She's very personable and easy to get along with. I never felt like I was inconveniencing her when I had questions. Which leads me to say that she is very knowledgeable and quick to respond to any calls/texts. I appreciate the work she put in and her honesty. I would highly recommend her.

Sophia Vassilagoris 2021-08-26

My family has worked with Maura for over a decade, and she has assisted us with the purchase or sale of several properties throughout that time period. Earlier this year, I needed to sell my condo and purchase a new house over the span of just a few months in an extremely competitive Ann Arbor market. I was very nervous and worried that things wouldn't come together like I needed them to, but I knew that if I had Maura in my corner, then everything would work out just fine. After selling my condo in just a few days, Maura was able to locate a home in our desired area of the city. Thanks to her knowledge and intuition, we worked together to submit an offer that was accepted, leaving us with our dream home. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and have Maura to thank for that. Her expertise and attention to detail are unmatched and she is really fun to work with. Based on this most recent experience, there is no one I trust more than Maura to come through and deliver the results I need. She will always be my go-to person for all of my future real estate needs.

Marc Ressler 2021-08-23

Maura is attentive, responsive and smart. She knows the market and works insanely hard for her clients. Maura developed a strategy to sell our house and far exceeded our expectations in both speed and selling price. We will use Maura for all of our real estate needs in Ann Arbor!

Kristina Schnepf 2021-08-20

Friendly, well organized, and efficient in the best interests of the client.

Maurice Trust 2021-08-05

Everything. We had an unexpected out of state job opportunity that necessitated a quick relocation. Maura’s responsiveness and proactive approach completely eliminated the stress from the marketing and sale of our home in Northville. I could not ask for a better Realtor.

Jahan Assadi 2021-08-04

She is the most wonderful human being and realtor anyone could ever know. She puts 110% into your sale and purchase. I have worked with her many times and will never change until she retires.

Rachel Broman 2021-07-28

Everything…best agent out there.

MB 2021-07-28

Attention to details.

MS 2021-07-28

We loved everything about working with Maura. We used her to both purchase and sell our first home, and she made it the most positive experience we could have dreamed of. She’s professional, courteous, efficient, and an all around Rockstar! Maura made us feel at ease during every step of the process while simultaneously keeping us on our toes - and laughing the entire time. We’re sad to be leaving the Detroit area, because we’d continue to use her for every real estate transaction possible. We couldn’t recommend her enough!

Cecily Counter 2021-07-14

Maura was fantastic to work with from start to finish. She made everything seamless while keeping us informed of all the important details related to our recent home purchase. She worked tirelessly, was always available to answer our questions, and went above and beyond by helping us determine which neighborhoods would allow us to install a fence for our dog. I can’t think of a single thing she could have done better. You’ll be glad to have Maura working with you.

Noelled2 2021-06-28

Maura was excellent from the moment we met. She kept me informed of everything I needed to do and was always very responsive with any questions or concerns I had. She visited properties for me regularly, which was a tremendous help since I was moving from out of state. Maura is realistic and honest about your prospects and what to expect with the current market. I would recommend her to anyone.

Nemchik Family 2021-06-24

Maura Rains is the BEST! She's helped me buy & sell over the years. With her expertise and experience, everything just happens seamlessly like magic

JS Family 2021-06-12

Maura is very customer oriented and let us know exactly what we needed to do to get our house sold quickly and for top price. She went out of her way to take care of every detail and was extremely helpful when we needed a lock repaired during showings. She made the experience of selling our house a very pleasant one.

Jessica Winkelman 2021-05-18

Maura made our home buying experience truly wonderful. As a realtor she thorough, smart, adaptable, efficient, involved, and honest. That alone would earn her my highest recommendation. However, she is also kind, patient, and truly cares about finding a home that is right for you. She was wonderful with my 5 year old when we had to bring her along to view houses a couple of times. We are so thankful for the experience we had with Maura!

Katherine Bechard 2021-05-14

I cannot speak highly enough about Maura. She made the home buying process seamless for us (especially in this market) and she kept us updated often, made sure we understood the paperwork and process, and what the next steps were. Additionally, she is so knowledgeable about what is important for homebuyers need to pay attention to - which amazing for the first timer. All this, and she would play with our toddler while we toured homes uninterrupted. Maura is a bright shiny star and we just absolutely love her!

William Strasz 2021-04-14

Maura is very professional and quick to answer questions. Bought our new home and sold our old home with her. Listed our home for higher than I anticipated and we sold for over asking price within 3 days! Maura knows what she is doing!

Baran Family 2021-03-02

Maura is an amazing Realtor who goes above and beyond for her clients. She is meticulous and her wealth of knowledge about real estate is evident when you walk through a house with her. She always responded immediately to any questions we had and gave great advice on how to stage our house for sale and also how to navigate the process of finding a new home. She is a gem who truly cares about her clients and making sure they find the home of their dreams!

Jenny Speyer 2021-02-22

Very professional and quick to answer questions. Listed our home for higher than I anticipated and we sold for over asking price within 3 days! Maura knows what she is doing!

Narcis Baran 2021-02-19

Maura was extremely helpful in the sale of my home. She ensured it was priced and marketed correctly and was awesome at just checking in and letting me know things are moving. Being a first time home seller her expertise was invaluable. I would 100% recommend Maura!

zuser20160610060015094 via Zillow 2021-02-17

From the start Maura made me feel like I was her only client. She handled every step of the sales process with ease and gave me a heads up immediately if anything changed. From her sound advice about what needs to be done and what makes a home sell, to the extra care she took to make sure the photos were professional. Maura made my experience of selling my home as easy as it could be in my circumstances. Thank you once again for all you have done.

Gerald Lowery 2021-02-17

Maura was extremely helpful in the sale of my home. She ensured it was priced and marketed correctly and was awesome at just checking in and letting me know things are moving. Being a first time home seller her expertise was invaluable. I would 100% recommend Maura!

Emilia Boloczko 2021-01-30

Maura is hands down the best real estate agent I’ve worked with to date. She is responsive and was quick to answer any questions I had. She walked me through every step of the selling process, and her marketing plan for the home was tremendous. She was a true professional in every sense of the word. I would not hesitate to recommend or use her again.

Nelson via Zillow 2021-01-17

To say that Maura is a fantastic realtor is an understatement. She takes pride in her work, which is clear from day one. She's knowledgeable, conscientious, and hard working. We were moving from out of state, and she took the time to get to know us and our needs. She showed us around and helped us learn about the different local areas, even when she knew that it may take us months to purchase a home. She helped us navigate the challenges of the pandemic and made video tours of homes for us while we remained out of state. She has a great eye for catching problems in homes that would go unnoticed by others. We felt so comfortable with her understanding of our needs that we put an offer on a home after a video tour and her input. We trusted her that much, and we've been extremely happy with our choice. We have worked with several realtors over the years, and Maura is by far the best. We'll be referring everyone else to her moving forward.

user6861140 via Zillow 2021-01-12

It is difficult to overstate how instrumental Maura was in the process of buying our first home. Maura answered all our questions patiently and thoroughly. When it came to communication and logistics, she never missed a beat. Her advice was always sound, and her instincts on point. She saved the day for us multiple times during closing. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor, and recommend her to anyone buying or selling for the first or tenth time.

Via Zillow 2020-12-23

Maura is a wonderful agent! She is kind and professional and an expert in her field.

Elizabeth Arnkoff 2020-11-18

Maura went out of her way in every detail of helping us find a new home in Michigan. She was always upbeat, positive, and kept us fully informed every step of the way. She let me go from totally thrilled to tears without a single complaint. She turned a challenging situation into a positive, sticking with us to the very end. We are now official Michiganders! Many thanks and much appreciation to this professional, awesome lady and realtor!

Katrina Freeman 2020-11-05

Attention to detail. Very thorough and thoughtful while leading me thru every step of the way to closing.

Denise Kuenzer 2020-11-02

Maura is absolutely the most dedicated, experienced professional. I will NEVER work with anyone else. I will follow her wherever her career goes as long as she stays somewhere within my same region. Personally she is the kind of person you want to be around also. You are lucky to have someone who is stunning in all areas of her life.

Rachel Broman 2020-10-17

We retained Maura’s services as our realtor for selling our previous home and buying our current home. I would start by saying that it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Maura on both sides of the process. We were lucky to find Maura on Realtor.com through a simple general query back in December of last year. Ever since our first phone call, Maura has been by our side through thick and thin; ups and downs with her calm demeanor, steady hands, and her impeccable knowledge of the real estate market. When we went live with the listing, at the beginning of March, the response from prospective buyers was stunning. Covid-19 virus was spreading in Michigan and we opted not to do open houses following Maura’s advice. Within hours of our listing hitting the different online platforms (Realtor.com, Zillow, Redfin, etc.) we received numerous requests for showing. In just two days, we received five offers with one offer going above our asking price. Using her great organizational and communication skills, Maura kept us informed in a timely and organized fashion. Within a week of putting our house on the market, we accepted an offer and we were under contract. Maura had the foresight to encourage us to check out multiple houses in our desired location and she scheduled plenty of showings for us back in January and February while we were getting our previous house ready for sale. This strategy, orchestrated by Maura, turned out to be one of the best moves we made during our house buying process. By the time the real estate market was shut down, we had already seen more than 15 homes and were not locked into any offers. We had many beautiful homes to choose from and virtually had little to no competition. Maura exceeded our expectations during the house buying process as well. She has the patience of a saint and was great interacting with our two kids (14 and 9). Maura has a vast knowledge of the local real estate market, past events, present happenings, and future development plans, which is paramount information when one is contemplating a home purchase. Maura was fantastic in helping us pull an offer together for the home we eventually ended purchasing. The contrast couldn’t have been clearer between Maura’s work ethics and high-quality standards and some of the other realtors representing our counter parties. There is no doubt about it, Maura is just one top notch realtor! She was with us at every step during the tandem process of selling our previous home and buying our current one. We were not sure about the intricacies of this process and quite frankly we were a bit anxious about it. But Maura was strategic, smart, and so subtle in her approach that she made it feel like a walk in the park. She is superbly good at her craft! She also has a network of professional contacts from home inspectors, house cleaners, to various contractors that just amplifies the value of her service to her clients. In the end, we sold our previous home and we moved into our current home about 5 weeks ago. Everything went smoothly, we love our new home, and we couldn’t have been happier with the work that Maura did. It is now August and it has been over 7 months since Maura and I first spoke on the phone. We started off as realtor and client, but I think our family gained a friend in Maura as we’ve learned to relax around her, trust and respect her advice and counsel. I know my review is a little long and I feel that strongly about my impressions of Maura professionalism, virtues, skills, experience and know-how. It goes without saying that I would recommend Maura to all my friends and family. If you go with Maura for your real estate needs, know that you will be getting superior and unparalleled service backed by her awesome knowledge of the market, her expertise, her professional network, and her decades of experience in real estate industry.

Moussa Sissoko 2020-08-09

Maura made selling our house during the covid-19 shutdown look easy! She was absolutely wonderful with communicating about everything from how to take good looking photos of our house without being able to use a professional photographer to how to safely have the inspection/appraisal/closing. She gave us great advice throughout the whole process and, despite everything that can go wrong with selling a house (especially during a pandemic), everything went smoothly. We cannot recommend Maura enough!

Leigh Goetschius 2020-07-30

Maura is the most beautiful person inside and out I’m at a lost for words. She was very patient and at the top of the game. My words are not enough the sky is the limit. And she is the best realtor every and I have talked to a lot of them. She is the very best!

Contance Black 2020-07-27

Maura is very resourceful, always available, very professional, and works very hard. She responded well to our needs. She has a pleasant personality and understands issues related to privacy and confidentiality

Amr Soliman 2020-07-21

My wife and I don't often have the time to write online reviews, but this is a rare example of where it was a no-brainer, due to the astounding work Maura Rains, of the Charles Reinhart Company, performed over the thirty days or so we were working to close on our dream house. I found this home on Zillow in early March 2020 and contacted Maura to be our agent. I remembered back in 2008 she was instrumental in assisting my parents purchase their home twelve years ago. We finally closed, along with our four daughters, on April 17, 2020, right in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic and Stay At Home orders here in Michigan. I would have to write an article well over ten pages long to fully cover all of the daily accounts and situations Maura displayed of professionalism, activeness, kindness, honesty, wisdom, responsiveness, etc, etc. Maura worked tirelessly for us, without question, answering all questions immediately day after day either via text, phone, email, but usually the daily phone call(s), even while she consistently had numerous other clients to care for. In the rare moment where a call was missed, it was only because she was on the other line working and would text, "On the phone, will call right back", and I would always hear back within the hour. I remember feeling bad one evening when I called with an urgent update at around 7 PM, she was in the middle of cooking dinner on the stove at home, but she didn't care and we ended up talking important business for well over thirty minutes. For the rest of our days, we will recommend Maura Rains to our large circle of friends and family if in need of an Realtor. Her high degree of competence, work ethic and genuine kindness are absolutely unmatched! Thanks Maura!!!

Paul & Kirsten 2020-07-19

Working with Maura was truly a blessing! She was always available, prompt, and goes above and beyond for her clients! Despite the market being super competitive - we felt confident with Maura on our side! She found us our dream home seconds after it hit the market, got our offer in ASAP, and it was accepted the next day. Maura is the best in the business!

Erin Fleck via Zillow 2020-07-18

Maura is simply the best. Hire her-- you won't be sorry. She is a consummate professional and is fun to work with. She listens well and has vast connections in the area. This combined with the tremendous savvy to pull things off makes her the best person to hire. Period. Even in the worst of times and situations like COVID-19, she came through!

Conor Nelson via Zillow 2020-07-15

Maura's professional knowledge and work is exceed only by her personality and kindness. She not only helped us sell our home quickly and effectively, but she did so after the home had sat for months prior. She was aggressive when needed but understanding when necessary. As an attorney, I have interacted with hundreds of realtors across Michigan and even Florida, and none can handle a purchase or sale like Maura. If you want true professional guidance, look no further.

Andrew Babnik 2020-06-18

Maura was topnotch. We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable realtor. She thought of questions we wouldn't have. She always kept us in the loop and she went above and beyond what we would've expected. I wish we could give her 10 stars instead of 5.

user8994954 via Zillow 2020-05-26

In 1998, a co-worker told me about this realtor. Maura has gone above and beyond anything you could ever ask of any one realtor. I bought four houses with her and I sold houses with her since 1998. I feel so comfortable with her, I could be out of state and still trust her to find a house for me that I would love. She learns what you like and works her hardest to find you a home that you would love. She's extremely straight-forward, honest with you, and sticks with you throughout the whole process. I could not recommend more! Thank you!

Harold Duane via Zillow 2020-04-22

From the moment we reached out to her to discuss our move, Maura was prompt, courteous, well informed and flexible. Maura is extremely hard working for her clients and is available by phone and in person whenever needed. Maura made moving to Ann Arbor from out of state smooth and simple due to her pro-activity and knowledge of the market. She kept us informed, anticipated needs, provided great advice, and was there for us every step of the way. I will recommend Maura to everyone I know. She is a pro and more than anything, a kind, honest, trustworthy person who I am pleased to know!

Maura is a Boss! She has your (not her) best interest at heart. She doesn’t sugar coat anything and works relentlessly for her clients. I can’t speak highly enough about our experience with her.

John Schnepf 2020-04-10

Maura is an AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING realtor that deserves accolades!! We needed a place within a short time frame and we were demanding. We had a million questions and specific things we wanted in the house. She was gracious, she pounded the gravel with us (heels and all!) and did everything with a high level of professionalism. She is extremely responsive, kind, listens well, and helps you find what works best for you. I cannot say enough about her. She is simply amazing! If you need a realtor, just arrange to meet with her. You will NOT regret it. She is a wonderful realtor who is extremely knowledgeable about her area!

I will try to limit the superlatives. As first time home buyers, we feel very fortunate to have found such an effective, knowledgeable, and generally fantastic realtor in Maura Rains. Buying a home was surprisingly arduous, and it was incredibly reassuring to be ushered through an unfamiliar process by someone so responsive and competent. We remain grateful of, and impressed with, her total professionalism, care, and commitment to ensuring a smooth and positive experience with such a significant life event. Go with Maura. She knows what she's doing

Maura is extremely knowledgeable about the area, the market and relocation processes. She is an awesome communicator and provides speedy fast response every time. She also goes above and beyond to provide professional and personal help to our family, we highly recommend her as a realtor in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area.

Lina & Michael McGrain 2019-12-16

Maura is the absolute BEST! She is knowledgeable, honest and most of all she really CARES about you and the entire house buying process. We were recommended to Maura through a friend and she helped us find our dream home at a reasonable price, even though we were house hunting from a different state. She goes above and beyond the call of a real estate agent. Even though we have only known her under a year, we knew we could trust Maura fully and that she had our best interest in mind. We recommend her ENTHUSIASTICALLY. You will not be disappointed!

Gabe & Jenny Pak 2019-12-13

I had an excellent experience with Maura. I really appreciated her professionalism, market knowledge and experience. Maura was able to simplify the process from start to closing and had my best interest in mind.

Izodlewis via Zillow 2019-12-12

She is an awesome communicator, she kept me updated almost immediately. She is also very responsive, I felt like I can always rely on her. She really goes above and beyond to provide professional and personal suggestions about my house selling, picture taking, styling, etc. I was away from the house so she stopped by the house periodically. I highly recommend her to anyone.

My name is Paul Williams and I would highly recommend Maura.Rains as your Agent. She had been working with us for a year in finding the right house. This past month or so we found or lovely home. This was our first home purchase and it was an AWESOME experience! I would call Maura a PROFESSIONAl agent. She taught myself and my wife so much about what to look for in a home purchase etc. Maura never pushed us or complained to us about our long term process in finding the right home that we like and wanted to spend most of our lives in. Never a question she could not answer. If there was, one that she was not sure of, she was back the next day with the answer. I really have to be honest, Maura was like family to us. She cared and wanted us to be happy in our home. We love her personality and Character. She never left us in the Dark. Informed us all the time with necessary information or suggestions. Maura also did things for us that she really didn't have to do as an agent but she was always on TOP and beyond for us and she honestly cared. Maura was with us all the way and that felt so comfortable to know that. So, if you looking for a Real Estate Agent., Don't think twice, go with Maura Rains. Best in the business.

Paul & Kealy Williams 2019-11-22

We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and competence of our realtor, Maura Rains with our recently completed home sale. Unfortunately, a water leak was discovered prior to closing that required substantial troubleshooting, cabinet removal, and concrete work. Without Maura’s contacts and personal touch, I doubt the repairs would have been made in a timely fashion to successfully complete the sale. Her reassuring guidance was invaluable to my wife and me during that stressful time. I highly recommend Maura Rains for her Professionalism and personal touch for your real estate needs.

For many reasons, it was not an easy decision to sell my house and buy a condo. Maura was at my side during the whole process. She really makes you feel you are her only client as she is answering the phone, is on site, offers extra visits as if she has all the time in the world and I know that all realtors are not like this. It was never a problem to ask her for extra explanations, reformulations, and being an expert never prevented her from using her great sense of humor, warmth and compassion. I would not hesitate to 'use' Maura again if I needed to.

Maura was extremely helpful in helping us buy our first home! Extremely impressed with her responsiveness - you'd think your her only client given how quickly she was able to answer our numerous questions and concerns throughout the buying process. She was more than able to accommodate our pretty tight timeline and was able to help us shape our viewings. While I can't speak to other areas, she REALLY knows greater Ann Arbor, helping us understand the benefits and challenges with various neighborhoods as we went along. I think she also took the time to understand the market during negotiations; very happy with the house and the price we ended up with. Thanks so much, Maura for making this happen!

Bellapei via Zillow 2019-09-12

I've worked with Maura to purchase and sell a home in Ann Arbor. She's been great! Maura knows the area well. She found neighborhoods that fit my needs and price range. We looked at several homes to get a feel for the market. The last house that we looked at was a perfect fit! When it was time to sell, Maura Rains was the first person to come to mind. We researched several homes to make a competitive price and Maura identified the best bang-for-buck improvements to make. She went out of her way to keep an eye on the house and help out while I was out of state. That really reduced stress! Maura ran several open houses and kept a steady stream of buyers interested in the property. This was impressive, given that the house went on the market in the middle of winter! I highly recommend Maura to anyone that is looking to by or sell a house in the Ann Arbor area!

Tmachuga via Zillow 2019-06-17

Maura Rains was amazing and worked with us at every step of the way from listing to the sale of our home. She was in constant contact, helping us navigate the open house, offers, and requirements for closing. We relied on Maura to help with so many of the requirements we were unfamiliar with as our closing approached and she made sure that every deadline was met and helped us close with no problems. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

Alan Kahnus via Zillow 2019-05-10

Working with Maura Rains was a great experience from beginning to end. She is extremely knowledgeable and very thorough at what she does. She never made me feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. I always felt that she had time to help me with whatever I needed. When going to look at homes she pointed out everything and gave great advice regarding what to look out for. As a first time home buyer her knowledge, professionalism, and sincerity was invaluable. I truly enjoyed working with her and I would recommend her to anyone!

Maura Rains was our real estate agent in both the buying and selling of our homes. Maura is exceptional. She is unbelievably knowledgeable, dedicated, hard-working, approachable, patient and an absolute pleasure to work within the crazy and stressful world of real estate. Maura did not have it easy with us. We had a dream of finding the perfect historic home in a perfect historic town. We searched for over a year within a large area. We still feel bad about making Maura drive so much. Maura was incredibly patient and helped us avoid making bad decisions. Every time we walked through a house, she made sure to look for problems related to foundation, roofing, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, etc. We honestly don’t know how she knows so much about everything (e.g., construction, financing, contractors, etc.). Maura always pointed out potential issues but never pressured us one way or the other. Maura’s goal was to make sure we were fully informed to allow us to make the best decision. Once we found our perfect house, it didn’t get any easier. We fell in-love with a historic house that was a duplex (of course) that we wanted to convert back to a single family home. This meant difficult appraisals, financing, tenant issues, etc. to the point we almost gave up. Maura kept us going and also buffered and sheltered us from people with difficult personalities who were involved in the sale. Thanks to Maura, we are now living in our dream home. Maura was also just as amazing in the sale of our existing home. Her marketing approach was incredibly effective and really the best of the best. We had multiple offers on our house in a few short days. We accepted an offer only four days after we listed that was significantly above our asking price along with excellent terms. Maura knows what she is doing and you should listen to her. We cannot fathom going through the process of selling and buying a home without Maura. We are thankful for everything she did for us. We know she did so much behind the scenes, and we are grateful. Having Maura represent you in your real estate transaction will be one of the best decisions you can make. You will be in excellent and capable hands.

Michael and Mandy Flynn 2018-10-28

We just worked with Maura to purchase our first home. Starting out we were very overwhelmed, we didn't know much about the area we wanted to purchase in, or how to even go about buying a home. Maura helped us figure it all out. She's clearly very knowledgeable about local neighborhoods and the history behind them. She also gave us lots of good advice about what to look for and watch out for as we toured houses. We appreciated her highly organized working style and her dedication to making sure all i's were dotted and all t's crossed so the whole process between offer and closing went as smoothly as possible. Highly recommend Maura to any first-time home buyer, she will take great care of you and help you find what you're looking for!

Hewample via Zillow 2018-09-08

She is amazing. She'll make you feel like you're her only client. She's very friendly and will do an exceptional job with your negotiation. We've used Maura THREE TIMES - two sales and one purchase. I could not think of ever using anyone else. She's got clients for life!!!

Jay Shaw via Zillow 2018-09-07

Maura was absolutely amazing! We were moving from out of state and began working with her about six months before we were going to move. She was extremely patient and helpful and when/if we buy or sell again we will DEFINITELY use her! Cannot recommend her enough!

Rowleyml via Zillow 2018-09-06

I've only purchased 3 homes in my life, but the experience of working with Ms. Rains was far and away the best of them. She's professional and diligent, functioning more like a consultant that an agent. If you're making one the largest financial decisions of your life, you want someone like this on your side.

sangsland via Zillow 2018-09-06

Maura was great! She never pressured us in our search for our first home, and was really knowledgeable about the Ann Arbor market. She helped us put together a great offer that was accepted on our first try. She's been with us every step of our home purchase, kept us on track, and having her along has made the process a lot less stressful than it could have been. We would definitely recommend her to anyone searching for a new home.

Cameron Heather via Zillow 2018-07-03

Maura made the house buying process enjoyable and a very valuable learning experience. She worked tirelessly to help me find my first property. She is very knowledgeable and looks out for her clients!

Maura was a tremendous help in the sale of my investment property. She is efficient, organized, and effective. Thrilled to have sold so quickly. I will contact her again in the future if the need arises.

Via Zillow 2018-02-15

My wife and I have used Maura to purchase and sell properties on numerous occasions. She is an amazing realtor and a pleasure to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and goes above and beyond to showcase your home. We have worked with other realtors in the past and Maura is by far the best. She has always exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor.

Via Zillow 2018-02-15

I met Maura Rains a little over a year ago when she helped my sister buy a condo in the Saline area. I was so impressed with Maura's knowledge, honesty, and flexibility that I immediately scheduled a meeting with her once my husband and I decided that we were going to start looking for a house of our own. With Maura as our realtor, the process of looking at houses and eventually putting in an offer was stress-free, straightforward, and even fun! We are so thankful for all of the late nights and early mornings Maura worked in order to help us find our dream home and we hope to have the opportunity to work with her again in the future. We would recommend choosing Maura as your realtor to any friend, family member, or stranger!

Maura Rains is a stellar realtor! My wife and I recently purchased a home in the Ann Arbor area with Maura’s help and she is really a great person to have on your side. She is extremely knowledgeable, flexible, and an excellent communicator, and knows the Ann Arbor area extremely well. We had a pretty challenging home search, but Maura was personally invested and worked as hard as possible to find us a great house. She has a passion for what she does and it really shows in the quality job she does. I can’t recommend her enough!

We were referred to Maura by our lender. As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect. She was very friendly when I first inquired about working with her and she gave us lots to think about to get our home search started. We looked at over 50 houses over the course of 2 or 3 months and she was almost always available to spend time looking at them with us. We never felt rushed or pressured. I found it helpful that as she would see something that wasn't up to code or was a concern or that would add extra cost after the sale of a house, she was very upfront about it. She was always accessible by text or email to answer any questions we had throughout our search. Highly recommend.

Via Zillow 2017-09-27

Maura was a lifesaver. I was a first time home buyer with little knowledge and Maura was very patient and showed us home after home until we finally found the perfect place that met all my criteria. I would recommend her to anyone who is buying a home.

Dani Mac 1987 Via Zillow 2017-09-27

I'm so thankful I found an amazing realtor like Maura Rains. I was a first time home buyer and needed a lot of guidance. Maura was there every step of the way. She's one of the most organized people I know! Not only from a business standpoint but her phone case even matched her agenda - she clearly has it going on!! She is always available. She quickly replied to any emails/texts/phone calls. Also, she knows the market. I was moving from over a hour outside of Ann Arbor & since the AA market is crazy she really made me feel like it was doable at my budget. Maura was there in a moments notice to show me a place which is essential in this market. All and all I would trust Maura with any of my home buying needs. I highly recommend her to friends and family.

Via Zillow 2017-07-20

Working with Maura was such a great experience. We were first time buyers and she patiently worked with us to find our perfect home. She was super responsive and very flexible with her schedule. She gave great advice for what to look for and what to watch out for. We felt very well taken care of! We honestly couldn't recommend her more.

Josh Goetschius 2017-07-11

A 5 star rating isn't high enough for Maura's services!! She went (and is still going) above and beyond the call of duty. I relocated with work and had a lot of extra hoops I had to jump through, but she made it feel like there weren't any. Truly a master of her craft. If you are in need of a Realtor, look no further.

Josh Lowery 2017-04-27

Maura Rains helped my husband and I purchase a home. The home inspection revealed a surprising amount of issues and the sellers were particularly difficult to work with, but we were in love with the house and decided to go ahead with the purchase. Through the whole process, Maura's knowledge of the process helped. She was always prepared for everything that came about, educated us about steps, paperwork, issues, and our options for repairs. We would definitely turn to Maura again in the future.

Via Zillow 2017-03-22

Maura did a great job regarding the entire home buying process. She was able to find a group of homes we were interested in and within our budget. She listened to what we liked and offered suggestions and recommendations that we otherwise would not have thought of. When it came time to put in an offer, finalize financing, and work with the title company, she was instrumental in keeping the purchase on track. We would ask Maura to represent us again whether buying or selling.

Via Zillow 2017-03-18

I highly recommend Maura Rains for all your real estate needs! I can't say enough about what a positive experience we had selling our house with Maura. She is extremely friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and made the process so easy. From the professional photos to the attention to detail it's no wonder she sold our house in just TWO DAYS!! If you want results hire Maura today!

Dear Maura, I wanted to personally thank you for all you have done to help Bryan and I find and close on our first home. The journey to Riverwalk was an emotional and at times very overwhelming but with you by our side, I felt more at peace because you took such good care of us. I felt like family so thank you from the bottom of our hearts and going the extra mile.Once we get settled I would love to have you over to see our house and meet our pup Yuna. Thnak you, Bryan and Cindy Alonzo

Dear Maura, Thank you for all your guidance and patience during our house search! Atley and Arrio are so happy to be in a neighborhood with so many other kids, and we love the layout of the house even though - after 10 years of living in a < 1,500 s. ft. house - we sometimes can't find the kids. All the best, Melissa and Tristan

Melissa Atienza and Tristan Burton 2016-11-02

Dear Maura, We were trying to add up the years we've been working with you for both buying and selling a house... maybe over 10 years at least! I know we met in 2002! Thanks for hanging with us through all that time! Thanks for your patience - especially with my allergy stuff. Thanks for your persistence, knowledge, and wisdom along the way! Love, Kathi and Tom

Maura, Thank you so much for all you've done for me over the past (many) months. I can't imagine having done this experience without you, and I still remember the first day I walked into your office, absolutely terrified. You have been absolutely wonderful to me and my family. I'm so excited to move into my new place. It's exactly what I wanted. I will happily recommend you to everyone. Love, Corrisa

Maura came highly recommended and within a few days of an initial conversation on the phone, we were meeting at top quality houses for showings. She quickly understood what I was looking for in a new home, and when on site, she educated me on numerous key details to look for during a walk-through. When I decided to pull the trigger on an offer, Maura helped me get the best deal I could. I am confident that if I had worked with a different realtor, I would not be as happy as I am now in my new home.

Jon Wicks 2016-07-31

Maura is so personable, experienced, professional and a great person to work with. She is up front and honest and doesn't beat around the bush which we really appreciated. She knows the area very well and knows how to work with people - both buyers and sellers. She responded to all our questions as soon as possible. I highly recommend her to anyone!

TS and KS 2016-07-31

As a first time home-buyers my husband and I anticipated that working with a realtor would be similar to our experiences working car salesman. Maura exceeded our expectations in every way. Not only did she provide us with her expertise in navigating the housing market, she helped to teach us what to look for in a home. She actively acknowledged features of the home we looked at that would need repair etc. Maura provided us appointments that fit our schedule, and was consistently on time and prepared. Her personal relationships throughout the community were truly an asset when it came to getting home inspections scheduled under a time crunch. I wouldn't think twice to work with Maura again and would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family

Amanda Black 2016-07-24

Words can not express how grateful we are to you. We appreciate your willingness to go the extra mile in open houses and advertising, that was just what we saw, we know that you did more behind the scenes. This is why so many clients recommend you. Thank you for holding Kathy's hand as we went through the process and your suggestions of staging were spot on. Calling and giving updates so we could be well informed, or if nothing to report your cheery voice and positive attitude made us feel better that something was going to happen. Indeed it happened! As hard as it is was to leave our house of 28 years, it makes us feel better the neighborhood is being transformed to a younger generation. It is a great neighborhood we only see it getting better. One of the nicest things that happened to us while you were selling our house we made a friend.

Kathy and Steve 2016-03-31

Without hesitation, we would recommend Maura for your real estate needs. She is the ultimate professional and a walking book of knowledge about real estate buying and selling processes. Maura always had our best interest as a top priority and she was tireless in helping us find the right home. It was a pleasure working with Maura.
