Here's what some of our clients have to say about the McCarthy Group:
The McCarthy Group has now assisted me with two major real estate purchases, my home in Old Metairie 5 years ago and just recently, a 3-story office building in Old Metairie. As I told Shaun, I’ve had more trouble buying plumbing parts at HomeDepot than these two transactions. He and his team were there every step of the way and were always engaged. I unequivocally endorse and recommend the McCarthy Group.
Peggy and her team were beyond outstanding in the sale of my property. They were very proactive, engaged, professional and knowledgeable. I was particularly impressed with their follow up and strategic thinking on trying to sell the property. They didn't just list it and wait. They were very engaged all the way to the closing. Most importantly, they use a team approach which sets them apart from any other real estate company. They worked as a tight team, never skipping a beat. I've used other Realtors in the past and no one compares to these folks. I highly recommend them.
Mr. McGuire was exactly what we wanted in a Realtor. He was cordial, always on time and extremely thorough. The McCarthy Group knows the area better than any other Realtor in our area and were the first to jump on our request to help us in this transition in a timely manner. A fantastic crew and a fantastic experience. Thank you so much! .
Paige McCarthy has been fantastic to work with. I bought my condo using the McCarthy Group and Paige and sold it through her three years later. Both transactions went smoothly. She really went the extra mile to make sure I got the best possible outcome for both. She was cool, calm and collected through all the curve balls that got thrown our way. Highly recommend.
The McCarthy Group provides an efficient, reassuring home buying experience. From the moment we met Peggy Bruce, we knew we were in good hands. Peggy is kind, energetic, and patient. Once our offer was accepted, Jennifer Lemoine guided us through the inspection and closing process. Jennifer thoroughly answered all of our questions and ensured that we felt comfortable moving forward each step of the way. Working with the McCarthy Group made buying our home less stressful and more enjoyable. We highly recommend the McCarthy Group.

Shaun sold my first house on Northline in 2015. He promised he would get it sold. Sure enough we shook hands on a Wednesday evening and he had it sold on Monday Morning. My next venture was the sale of my grandmother's house on Carrollton Avenue in Old Metairie. Again, he had a done deal in one week. Shaun is definitely the best at what he does. Without question he doesn't promise anything he can't deliver..
Thank you for the incredible time, toil and talent you devoted to the sale of our home. I am certain that the sale only went through as a result of Jennifer and the McCarthy Group's expertise, dedication and finesse. You are truly a jewel and I am so appreciative of all of your efforts.

A military relocation gave me reason to sell my property in Old Metairie, and initially I thought I could sell on my own – while I was still living in Savannah, GA. After initially listing as for sale by owner, I was bombarded by agents who were pushy and felt I priced too high. Then came Peggy Bruce with the McCarthy Group. She was candid, honest, and very confident that our initial list price was achievable – and offered to assist with the listing if we decided to not sell on our own. Fast forward a week and I realized that long-distance realty was not going to work (especially because we had a tenant to schedule showings around), and I reached out to Peggy for assistance. She and Paige quickly took action and in just a week we had several very competitive offers – at a higher price point than I even thought we could reach. From start to finish, the McCarthy Group took all the stress off me and my family as we were faced with another military move and home search. I can’t say enough great things about this company and their commitment to their clients, and am very thankful I sought their assistance with selling my home.
The McCarthy Group did an outstanding job selling my home in Terrytown, LA. From getting the clients to the property to their electronic signing, my experience was off the charts. I left for a Seattle vacation on a Tuesday and the house was open for viewing Friday of that week which drew 4 buyers in 2 days. By Monday a bidding war was on and by the time I was on my flight back to New Orleans from Seattle, an agreement was signed getting me $9,000 more than I expected. It closed 3 weeks later. The emails I received while on vacation were something you can only imagine in a dream. These people SELL HOMES. My stepson, who recommended the McCarthy Group to me had a property in Harahan for sale for over 2 years with another agent. After contacting the McCarthy Group his property closed within 2 months. I am a "hard to get a compliment from" person but when I get EXCELLENT and PERSONAL service from a company or individual I let people know. They did extras such as give me approximate values of other properties I am involved with and work very quickly on GETTING THINGS DONE. They are also very courteous and patient to make sure you, the client, understand what is going on. Thanks again to the McCarthy Group for making this Real Estate transaction very smooth and stress free.

My husband and I had our home listed for sale by owner. When we were first contacted by Peggy Bruce asking us to consider hiring the McCarthy Group we were very reluctant and didn't think we would benefit from having an agent. We were so wrong! We listed the house with them on a Thursday and by Saturday we had 2 offers. Stephanie and Peggy were both exceptional to work with and we couldn't be happier with the way things worked out with the sale of our home. I would highly recommend using the McCarthy Group.
Eddie & Cherie Cabos
We have known Shaun McCarthy and Peggy Bruce for most of our lives, but friendship is no reason to hire a Realtor, or any other professional for that matter. We listed our home with McCarthy Group Realtors and because of Shaun and Peggy’s record of success and we couldn’t be more pleased that we did. Although they are very well respected from Uptown New Orleans all the way to Baton Rouge, we felt they were uniquely qualified to represent us in Metairie Club Gardens, as they both grew up in the neighborhood. They worked tirelessly to market our property, without wasting our time on non-serious or unqualified buyers. One of the marketing tools used by McCarthy Group Realtors is “prospecting”, which entails contacting potential buyers to gauge interest, as well as current residents who may know of potential buyers. While we didn’t really appreciate the value of “prospecting” at the time we listed, we certainly do now! As our listing coordinator, Peggy updated us every Thursday on all efforts and activity. If we had questions at any other time, she was always available. Even when offers came in, Shaun and Peggy continued to vigorously market our home, as contingencies remained. In the end, we had three competing offers and sold our home for the highest per square foot price in Metairie Club Gardens at the time.
Beth & Keith DePass
Peggy, Shaun, and their team did an outstanding job helping us to purchase our dream home. Peggy Bruce is professional, smart, and energetic. She was able to find the right buyer for our house within weeks. Peggy, Shaun, and the team were easy to work with. They were always kind and informative, and there was always an open and direct line of communication. I think that the best agents are the ones that make themselves available to their clients, and they were always available for any questions and comments that we had. We sincerely appreciated the hard work that they put into the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home, and we will most certainly use them again for future listings.
Jordan & Jessica Schulman
Thank you to Paige, Shaun and the entire McCarthy Group Realtor team. After working with them to purchase our Metairie townhouse in 2013, we knew there was only one choice of realtor when we decided to sell in 2017. Due to my husband's medical condition, we needed to sell quickly and wanted the process to be as painless as possible. From preliminary pricing advice to staging and showing, not only was the process painless but thanks to aggressive but realistic pricing, we sold our townhouse the first day for more than asking! Of course, our location was key but it was their in-depth knowledge of the New Orleans market that guided us to our purchase in the first place. Plus, their savvy negotiating skills facilitated a purchase price that laid the foundation for a profitable sale four years later. We recommend the highly professional McCarthy Group Realtor team to anyone who may not be familiar with the New Orleans housing market. You can rely on them to guide you to a successful outcome, whether buying or selling.
I highly recommend McCarthy Group Realtors, and in particular Shaun McCarthy and Peggy Bruce. When Shaun first contacted me about my listing, I was not ready to sell, so I asked him to call me back in 6 months. Shaun was not pushy and promised to touch base with me when I was ready. Six months to the day of that conversation, Shaun contacted me and set up a meeting with me, himself and Peggy Bruce. They diligently researched the comp listings and we mutually agreed upon the asking price. Once it was listed, they didn’t just simply place a sign in my yard, they actively marketed my property, contacting potential buyers that were already pre-approved and wanting a home that fit my home’s specifications. My home was on the market approximately 4 hours before I received my first offer! Peggy kept me informed weekly on the status of getting to closing day. She took care of all meetings with inspection companies, contractors, pest control specialists, title companies, etc. They truly earned every penny of the reasonable commission that they charged. They were a complete pleasure to work with.
We wholeheartedly recommend McCarthy Group Realtors and Peggy Bruce. No bones about it, it is tough to search long distance for a home! They made it as easy as it could be with their high-tech online search portal, and more importantly with their low-tech, high-touch customer service. Peggy oozes personable professionalism, we absolutely trust - and adore - her. We are completely in love with our new home. Thanks, y'all - Peggy, Jen, Shaun, the whole team - for getting us to the finish line! See you in New Orleans soon.
Our experience with the McCarthy Group Realtors was exceptional. The commission was more than fair considering the multiple listing periods and aborted closing due to Chinese Drywall. Never a whimper and continued professional tenacity throughout a year and a half period, which yielded a result close to the asking price. I would highly recommend Shaun McCarthy and Jennifer Lemoine to anyone interested in a real estate transaction for the best result possible. Nobody comes close!
Rick & Donna Gardner
We owned approximately 5 acres of land and decided to list it with a "Big Box Realtor". She had it listed for over 8 months and not one inquiry. She stuck a sign there and walked away. We were frustrated and wondering what to do, when out of the blue Peggy Bruce called and asked about the property. We decided to give their alternative methods a chance and within 1 month Peggy had the land sold for us! She was easy to work with and kept us informed. It was the easiest sale we have ever made. The McCarthy Group gets a five star rating from us!
Patricia & William Lanius
We used McCarthy Group Realtors for the sale of our existing home and the purchase of a new one. Shaun, Stephanie, and Peggy worked so well as a team during the entire process. Their communication was great. We received weekly updates while our house was on the market. After we had a buyer, we only had a few weeks to find a new house. Shaun and Stephanie were able to find a house that met all of our needs. It wasn't easy organizing the act of sale and new purchase on the same day, but they managed it very well. If a problem arose, they called to let us know but also had a solution ready. We would definitely use them again in the future if the need arose.
Mark & Mindy Meyer
We have been fortunate to have worked with McCarthy Group Realtors for several years in numerous real estate transactions. Having worked closely with Shaun McCarthy, Jennifer Lemoine and Stephanie Argrave, we can attest they represent the highest of professional standards and work ethic. More importantly the entire McCarthy Group understands the local, and statewide, real estate market and that expertise is evident when you work with them. They treat every client as if they are their only client and they follow up months after the closing to make sure all details of the transaction were completed. Thank you to each and every member of McCarthy Group Realtors for making what can be a complicated transaction into such a simple process – we look forward in working with you in the future!
Jim & Glenda Barkate
Wow. Let me guarantee you, McCarthy Group Realtors will get my business the next time I buy or sell! What a costly mistake I made when I didn’t go with the McCarthy Group. Not having the right Realtor cost me – emotionally and financially. I lost over $25,000 on my sale, finding out after the closing that the buyer was ready to pay full asking price! I had a good deal of contact with the McCarthy Group before I listed my property and failed to realize, before it was too late, what a mistake it was not hire them. Learn from my mistakes. Hire McCarthy Group Realtors the first time!
What can I say about McCarthy Group Realtors? From day one, this group was all business and very professional. We listed our property one day, and within two weeks, bingo! "Sold"! What more can one ask for? I recommend The McCarthy Group anytime, any day, to anyone. The Gutierrez family thanks Shaun McCarthy and his team!
After living in his wife's homeland of Indonesia for 5 years, our son Parker decided to move to America. My daughter-in-law was pregnant and didn't speak English so we knew we needed a safe neighborhood for them to settle into. Immediately, I knew I wanted to work with Peggy Bruce of McCarthy Group Realtors. Peggy was on it promptly. Due to her incredible prospecting and knowledge of the real estate market, she found a house very quickly. As an added bonus, McCarthy Group Realtors sent Jenifer, as the closing coordinator, to team up with Peggy. I've never seen this before. They treated me as though I was their only client. Together they covered all the bases from showing to coordinating inspections and closing with absolute professionalism, advising me on every aspect. I literally sat back, relaxed and they handled everything. It was a pleasure to work with Peggy and Jennifer. They are both professional, personable and detail oriented and I will always remember what a joy it was to work with, what I call, "the best Realty Group in the industry"! They certainly live up to their stellar reputation and McCarthy Group Realtors will always be the one and only real estate company I will ever work with. They are truly knowledgeable and compassionate about what they do and stand behind their work with pride. Whether you want to buy or sell McCarthy Group Realtors has all the resources you will ever need!
We are so grateful for all of you and your professional handling of the sale of our house at 1804 N. Arnoult Rd. Thank God I was persistent in finding you, Jennifer and Shaun, after our first meeting back in 2015 when you initially came to see us. Your considerate attitude of no pressure, only compassion for our situation is what "sealed the deal" for Gus and me! Jennifer, I personally want to thank you for always answering my many questions and showing up whenever I was in need of personal attention! Thank you for being considerate about our dog and for never failing to make appointments around our daughter's illness. It will be our pleasure to highly recommend McCarthy Group Realtors to friends, neighbors and anyone else who is looking for a Realtor who cares! Thank you again for everything!
Gus & Mary Membreno
I wanted to say thank you again to everyone at the McCarthy Group. It was so nice to work with you all. Paige, you were great - professional, so easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and made selling my house not stressful at all. I will recommend the McCarthy Group to everyone I know. I can't say enough good things. It was a pleasure.
I called in the McCarthy Group after my listing through another agent had turned stale with less than 10 showings in nearly a year. We dealt primarily with Paige McCarthy. She gave us regular updates, sent mailings and promoted our property consistent with what she told us she would do. She was friendly and willing to answer all of our questions. She advised price adjustments in a timely manner and most importantly, found a buyer. She was a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend her and all the Realtors in her group.

The McCarthy Group recently assisted me in selling my home in Bucktown. They were very professional, especially Stephanie Argrave. I am gladly giving my recommendation to you if you have a need to either buy or sell a home. They held open houses for other Realtors to view my home to get it "out there" to be seen.
