Sarah Maguire, Senior Vice President
What does the Aranson Maguire Group at Compass consider its biggest professional accomplishment? Its reputation. “Our colleagues reach out to us on a daily basis asking for our professional advice and opinions,” explains Matt Aranson, the group’s managing director. “We love collaborating with other fellow agents to help our clients find their next home.”
While clients range from first-time buyers to investors and developers, Aranson specializes in resales and investment sales while Sarah Maguire, the firm’s senior vice president, works with developers and new construction. With 20 years of experience collectively, Aranson started his career in sales, managing wholesale food distribution, and Maguire was a Division I athlete in college. “Our backgrounds prepared us for the fast-paced, relationship-driven atmosphere of real estate,” Maguire insists. She describes their work styles as professional yet approachable, supporting their clients to make smart choices and good investments even if it means losing a sale.
Aranson Maguire Group is made up of five full-time agents. “We are fortunate to have reliable team members,” Maguire shares. “It’s essential to have a team we can depend on, since we both have spouses, two kids and busy workloads.” Despite this, Maguire maintains a high level of responsiveness with her customers. “Many of my clients are millennials who expect immediate answers,” she admits, adding that Aranson is best known for his vast market knowledge across every major neighborhood in and around Boston. “He is immersed in stats and numbers pertaining to the markets,” she replies. “He is a true expert.”
Maguire and Aranson wholeheartedly believe that physical health directly correlates with mental health, and both are committed to modeling this for their team. Aranson is co-owner of SHED, a personal training studio with locations in South Boston and Back Bay, while Maguire is a master instructor at the indoor cycling studio, The Handle Bar. “In this industry, a healthy mind and body are non-negotiables,” Maguire admits. “We want our team to prioritize filling their own cups so they can, in turn, prioritize their clients.”
