    Always Responsive

    Whenever I reached out to Mike he either answered his phone on the first or second ring or he would call me back if I left him a message. Mike never left me hanging. His slogan "Keep Durkin Workin" holds true as he seems to be ALWAYS working.

    Sold in One Day

    Michael Durkin was my first and only choice as the Realtor to sell my home. He has been a Realtor in Northborough for decades and knows the market inside and out. He briefed me on his marketing plan for my home and it couldn't have been more successful. The plan began with an open house, which drew the buyer who made a fabulous offer that day. I am so pleased that the sale happened quickly and with no complications. Excellent job, Michael.
