Maryann & Joe Watson
Maryann Watson and Joseph Watson are the owners and managers of REMAX Way Real Estate in Dedham, MA. Maryann opened REMAX in Dedham in 1996 and her son Joseph joined her as part owner in 2006. REMAX Way is independently owned and operated and is a local family run business with several active top producing agents. The REMAX affiliation provides tremendous benefits to REMAX agents and in turn, their clients. This explains why REMAX agents out-perform other local companies in per agent production by 2 - 3 times in sales transactions. The Watson Team specifically does 10 times more transactions than that of the average Dedham agent, selling over 60 properties annually.
Maryann was born and raised in Jamaica Plain, Boston MA and attended Girls Latin School and has a Bachelor's degree from Boston State College. With more than 30 years’ experience, specializing in residential sales of single family, multi-family and condo properties, Maryann is a seasoned veteran. She is a skillful negotiator and is known as a strong advocate, going above and beyond, on behalf of her client's interests. She has mastered the art of creating win-win scenarios and in turn, has developed a "client for life" business. Over 70% of her business is repeat and referral!
Prior to working for REMAX, Maryann was the top-producing salesperson for Stanton and Tierney Real Estate of Hyde Park, MA for 13 years. Maryann has worked with and trained many top producing real estate agents over the years and is still leading the way by adhering to sound business fundamentals and by staying on the cutting edge of industry trends and technology. She is somewhat of a matriarch in the local real estate community and has always earned and maintained a great reputation.
Maryann holds several professional designations, the most prominent of which is the CRS designation, which stands for Certified Residential Specialist. Less than 5% of all REALTORS throughout the nation have this designation. She also holds a GRI, (Graduate of REALTOR Institute), ABR, (Accredited Buyer Representative), and SRES, (Senior Real Estate Specialist designations).
Joseph was born and raised in Hyde Park MA, a residential neighborhood in Boston. He graduated from Catholic Memorial High School in West Roxbury and has a bachelor’s degree in History from the University of New Hampshire. He is the proud and loving father of 2 sons.
A top producing residential real estate agent with 10 plus years of sales experience, Joe also specializes in the sale of single family, multi-family and condo properties. He has followed his mother's lead and has used her guidance and training to create a vibrant business and take their business to the next level. Joe is an experienced professional who focuses on getting bottom line results for his clients by coming up with practical solutions. He is known for bringing stability to chaotic situations and is sought out to give perspective and balance to any situation. He always looks for the creative approach to provide his clients with flexibility and options and is great at closing the deal once he has established a win-win scenario in the negotiating process. He is especially known for his deep commitment, sincerity, and follow through and is described as insightful and knowledgable by those who know him. He is an attentive listener who respectfully addresses the needs and concerns of his clients who have come to rely on him as a trusted advisor and resource for all of their Real Estate needs. He has great passion for the real estate business and it's clear that real estate is in the family blood.
Joe holds 3 professional designations: ABR, SRES, and e-Pro (internet marketing specialist). He also is a member of the Luxury Home Marketing Institute. Together Maryann and Joseph have formed "The Watson Team"; along with a full time administrator, Rhea Hoch, they have formed one of most productive real estate teams in the Greater Boston real estate marketplace. Proactive business planning and networking are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the team's success.
Both Maryann and Joseph are proud members of NAR (National Association of REALTORS), and are honored to uphold the high standards and ethics of the association, which non-REALTOR real estate agents are not required to follow. They are also certified mentors for Buffini and Company, the largest real estate agent coaching company in the nation.
Both Maryann and Joseph have each, individually, earned the most prestigious REMAX award for career production, joining the REMAX Hall of Fame in 2008 and 2010 respectively!
A portion of every sale made by The Watson Team is donated to the Children's Miracle Network on behalf of our clients, which is then given to our local Boston Children's Hospital.
