As the owner of Rouge, a successful Berkshire restaurant, for the past 17 years, Maggie understands how to create an excellent customer experience. In real estate, her aim is to provide superior, personalized service to her buyers and sellers and to do all that she can help them achieve their goals. With access to the best marketing platform and sales network in the world through the Sotheby’s brand, she can readily achieve that for her clients.

Before settling in West Stockbridge 17 years ago, she grew up in Brooklyn, and has lived in Manhattan and in France. A graduate of Antioch College, she traveled the world studying animal communication, as a veterinary technician, and worked in sales for a Bordelaise wine importer/distributor. Maggie is fluent in French, is ESL-certified, and was a teacher for many years.

Maggie settled in the Berkshires to find the perfect place to live, work and raise a family. Like others who have relocated here from all over the world, they appreciate their chosen home for its reasonable pace of life, great schools, fresh air and outdoor activities, and more culture than anyone could possibly hope to take in, while at the same time, Boston and New York City are just a couple of hours away.

With its many cultural offerings and recreational activities, and the strong commitment that newcomers and old-timers have to contributing to they're quality of life, Berkshire County is a place that truly offers something for everyone. She is proud to be a small business owner here and to be involved and to support the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Tanglewood, WAM, Mass MOCA, the Clark Art Institute, 1Berkshire, to name a few.

Real estate has always fascinated Maggie, and, as a real estate professional, she prides herself on understanding the market and to helping her clients navigate it. The restaurant is also an ideal place to keep her finger on the pulse of the market: people with young families, empty-nesters, part-timers enjoying a weekend retreat, and people looking forward to the time when they can retire here.

Maggie looks forward to sharing her passion for the Berkshires and her knowledge of the local real estate market to help you realize your real estate dreams.

Testimonials

Maggie helped us find a place in the Berkshires this past December. We were living in North Carolina and she was recommended to us by a friend. When we finally met her, we knew we'd found the right person. Maggie is very warm and engaging, with a ready and infectious laugh. She gave her honest opinion about the properties she showed us and her primary focus was to find the right property for us, rather than try to push us into a quick sale. We had limited days to look at properties and there had been a snowstorm the night before, but Maggie showed up in her cute red Mini Cooper ready for a full day. She put on her snow boots and trudged through a foot of new snow with us as we looked at different building lots like it was a great adventure. As owner of Rouge Restaurant, it is not too much of an exaggeration to say that Maggie knows everybody in town. At the end of a couple of days of looking we found a lovely piece of land. Maggie helped us through the negotiation and closing. We very much enjoyed working with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone. (Also, her restaurant is awesome!)

Maggie's energy and knowledge helped us sell our house in 30 days after having tried periodically for 10 years. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

gironaplumbing

Maggie is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and always kept us in the loop of new listings coming up. Her kind and patient attitude toward everything helped us stay focused on our search for the perfect place and helped us button up all loose ends all the way thru closing not only did we have an awesome realtor we made a great friend

Maggie’s personality is an asset in the Real Estate Business, not only she is passionate and enthusiastic for what she does and extremely attentive to the details but also caring to understand the unique needs and wishes of every client. She stood by my side every step of the process with knowledge and expertise and always with a warm approach. I recommend her without any reservation, she is simply the best!

We really needed to sell my house quickly, and with the help of Maggie Merelle, it was pending in less than a week. She was extremely efficient and made sure everything went smoothly. Always professional and always looked out for the best for me and my family.

I'm stingy with 5 stars - we were super happy. We brought her in to help negotiate the purchase of a second home for us, and she was great in managing the deal to a successful close. She was super responsive, provided lots of info about the area (particularly getting us going with contractors), and was a pleasure to work with.

My fiancee on I (on a whim) decided to look on zillow for a property. We found a few properties we liked and contacted the listing agents. One of those listed was Maggie's property. She was quick to respond and very flexible with our limited time to see the property.

I am. Dry impressed with Maggie. She has been terrific in helping us with our house purchase. She is very knowledgeable and very detailed. She knows the market and the people who live here. She has simply. Even excellent. Her personality is beyond delightful. I feel like I made a friend for life. I will continue to recommend Maggie to all.

zuser20170316115255202

Maggie did a wonderful job in handling a very difficult client. She was able to reassure me that it was the right decision to sell my mom's house. I would not hesitate to use Maggie again.

The purchase of this property was FULL of potential problems and a multitude of challenges that might have scared away the most seasoned buyer or the most experienced real estate agent - but Maggie knew we were in love with the property - and she got the deal done!

Michael McDyer

In a region filled with apathetic real estate agents, Maggie Merelle is a shiny, sparkling gem! We purchased our first home with Maggie in September of 2016. She was a pleasure to work with, always energetic and excited about our prospective purchase. She worked tirelessly and showed us countless listings to help us find our first home. In the end, we found the perfect place thanks to her perseverance and positivity! She won't stop until you get what you are looking for!

"Maggie made looking for a home in the Berkshires a relatively stress free experience. She responded to questions promptly, helped us find services we needed and provided balanced helpful information when it was most needed. She has wonderful local knowledge and is always responsive. My husband and I bought a wonderful home and in addition now count Maggie a friend! Thanks, Maggie!"
