While Maureen loves all that Fairfield County has to offer, it is Ridgefield where she has made her home for more than 30 years. From the very first drive down a twinkle-lit Main Street in early December on a house-hunting weekend as IBM transferees, Maureen has loved this town that she's so proud to call home.
The charm of Ridgefield brought her to town, but it is her relationships with wonderful friends and involvement in a variety of community organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Ridgefield Community Center and Ridgefield Sunrise Cottage that solidified her connection to this town.
Mother to three now-adult children who are all products of Ridgefield Public Schools, Maureen has been involved in all aspects of Fairfield County life and is a valuable resource for all things Ridgefield and the surrounding towns.
Maureen prides herself in her strong client care skills and believes that if people are treated with the respect and consideration that we all deserve, everyone wins. She works hard to get to know the needs of her clients and their families and goes out of her way to ensure that every real estate transaction is as uncomplicated and stress free as possible for all of her clients. Nothing brings her more pleasure than knowing she has helped match a family with the perfect next place for them to call home. Many of her clients have become as close as family, and she wouldn't want it any other way.
As well as having an in-depth knowledge of the local market, Maureen is especially experienced in dealing with luxury homes, first-time homebuyers and down sizers both moving to smaller local properties and those leaving town. She also has an in-depth understanding of the short sale process which makes her an excellent choice for information and compassionate guidance whether on the selling or the buying side.
Before coming to real estate, Maureen had a successful career in Sales Administration and customer service with a major Fortune 100 company. Her extremely out-going and contagiously positive personality make working with her a rewarding and pleasant experience. She believes there is always a way to make a transaction work and doesn't stop until the goal of her client has been achieved. Professional, enthusiastic, loyal and dedicated to excellence, Maureen is the perfect choice to guide you through your sale or purchase.

Maureen Maher is the ultimate professional. Her drive, focus, and honesty guided us to find the perfect home for our family. Maureen's ability to be present, her deep understanding of the market, and her humor made the experience of home buying in a competitive market a joyful one. We would recommend working with Maureen in a heartbeat!Maria Pizzarello
Maureen was terrific to deal with. We were living in Florida when we made the offer and she did everything necessary to bring about a smooth transaction. Would definitely use her again.Robert Diskin
Maureen Maher is simply the BEST! She is kind, thoughtful, proactive, reachable, and responsive. Maureen immediately realized my dreams to sell and purchase a new home. Her personal touch made it the most seemless sale and purchase in history!!! She took all the stress and worry off my shoulders. Maureen completed all the extra legwork with the attorneys and realtors involved in both the sale and purchase... juggling everything on my behalf. I am forever grateful for her expertise. I confidently recommend Maureen to all future clients, you will not be disappointed!Jean O'Connor
Maureen helped us find our dream forever home! She looked with us for two years, always kept us on the right track, and was extremely patient! Her insight and knowledge of the area was so incredibly helpful. She walked us through every step from start to finish and answered all of our questions right away. I can’t say enough nice things about her! She was absolutely wonderful and I would recommend her to all of our friends and family! My only sadness is that we won’t get to spend as much time with her, now that we have moved into our home!Meghan Lawrence
Maureen Maher is amazing. So knowledgable and professional. She was always available to help us and I can't say enough about her! She is the best!Emily Zimmerman
Maureen was amazing to work with. She kept bringing me new listings as well as keeping me realistic within my price points. Maureen was always available for questions, appointments that fit my calendar.David Wright
Maureen was fantastic! She helped us keep our head on straight every step of the way through what was an impossibly challenging process and time to be looking for a home. We couldn't be any happier and will recommend her to everyone that we can.Patrick Langan
Despite a crazy market and numerous roadblocks on our journey to purchase a home, we had the absolute best experience working with Maureen Maher. She is a true pro - extremely knowledgeable, accessible, thorough and transparent --- and on top of all of that, she is someone we truly enjoyed spending many hours with, touring many homes. I recommend her wholeheartedly for anyone looking to buy or sell in Connecticut.Alexandra Langan
Maureen Maher has been spectacular. From her exceptional assistance with prepping our home for selling to the staging and photos and description for the web she was spot on with her suggestions. She helped us get ahead of the curve by looking more closely at any house maintenance that needed up-front attention before putting the house on the market. When the house was listed and a frenzy of response was coming in, she quickly and efficiently scheduled the showings without over burdening us. Maureen then helped manage all of our inspection items of which there were times when we had multiple visits per day. She made it feel seamless and always with a positive “can do” attitude. Maureen has been professional and caring for one of our most important transactions. We could not imagine anyone else that we could have trusted this much. We have been served well by one of your most valuable assets and will recommend Maureen to any of our many friends in Ridgefield. We wish you and Maureen continued success!

Maureen was extremely helpful with staging tips and thorough in ensuring that the house was ready for sale. She fulfilled her fiduciary duty in the offer process and her follow through on the closing process was excellent I would highly recommend Maureen.Kevin McSpedon
I loved working with Maureen Maher! She goes above and beyond. I felt like I was in good, professional hands and I trust her implicitly.Sharon McSpedon
Maureen is not only an outstanding Realtor, she is a great ambassador for the area. We moved across the country during this pandemic. Understanding the restrictions and limitations: Maureen provided utmost support in providing pictures, videos and area-knowledge, making it possible to purchase our home while being over 2,000 miles away.Shayne Sweeney
There isn't a more exceptionally knowledgeable, personable, customer-oriented, insightful agent than Maureen Maher. If I had 10 houses to sell, I would have her sell them. If I had 10 houses to buy, I would have her guiding me thru it. Love her to bits!Caroline Vogler
I wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was working with Maureen Maher. She is a Realtor that goes above and beyond a Seller’s expectations. Maureen provided us with detailed reports after every showing. Her hands on approach was more than we could have asked for. Maureen even went so far as to help me move my piano. She is not only my realtor, but now a friend and someone that has a special place within my family. I will always recommend her first to anyone with house selling or buying needs. She is the absolute best and I know that we would not have had such a successful and easy sale of our house without her.Karen W.
Thank you, Maureen, for your exceptional guidance, support, talent and reassurance throughout our buying and selling process (and boy, has it been a process)! You have been amazing!Josephine F.
I just wanted to thank you again for all our help in selling my home. You went beyond the call of duty during the sometimes nerve-racking process, and I’ll be eternally grateful to you.Ann W.
We can’t thank you enough for all of the time and effort you put into finding our family the perfect house. We really enjoyed working with you so much. We never imagined what a long, drawn out process it would be to get where we are today! We really can’t imagine how we could have done it without you!Chris V.
