MAXFIELD HELPS WITH "GREASE": Jane Mooney of Maxfield Real Estate, Harry Corthell, Kelly Wims, Michael Allfrey and KRHS Theatre Director Scott Geissler come together to celebrate Maxfield's donation to help defray the costs of "Grease." (Granite State News 11/10/11)
WOLFEBORO - The We Care Program at Maxfield Real Estate was established in 1999 in honor of the company's 45th year in business and was created as a way of giving back to the community. Maxfield Real Estate recently donated to the Kingswood Regional High School Theatre department to help defray production costs.
Theatre director Scott Geissler stated,, "Unlike many of the sports programs that cost hundreds of dollars for the students to participate, Kingswood Theatre is free. 'Grease' will cost over $5,000 to produce and that is money that we need to come up with on our own as the school doesn't cover it."
He added, "The students and staff of Kingswood theatre are absolutely blown away by this generous support. It is so wonderful to have this type of support for the perfomning arts. This really sends a message to the kids that their efforts are valuable and valued. This is exactly the booster we needed before the show. Thank you very, very much for your donation!"
Maxfield donates two percent of every commision dollar to a local nonprofit organization as a way to support those organizations that are so beneficial to local citizens and their families.
WOLFEBORO - Maxfield Real Estate's Wolfeboro Office recognized its top producers of 2010: Randall Parker, Carol Bush, Joy messineo, Bill Regan, Denise Williams and Lynne Butler.
They are some of the best agents in the business today and work hard every day to make that happen When you work with a Maxfield agent, you get a whole team ready to step up to the plate and be helpful.
All individually produced sales volume in excess of $3 million; Randy Parker led the way with just over $15 million in sales. He is one of the Lakes Region's leading agents.
Consistently on top, Randy is the first one in each day and is often called upon for advice. He not only helps himself but encourages and helps others.
A strong believer in team effort, Randy is a terrific asset to his clients and the company. He used his primary assistant, Jane Mooney, other assistants, and his fellow agents to lessen the workload,
Randy is well-respected and liked by his peers. A little fun now and then is always in the offing.
Congratulations to the best in the business and a big thank you from Chip and Tina Maxfield.

The real estate news is definitely improving. Real Estate sales are generally up. Low interest rates have kept home buying affordable and buyers’ are beginning to believe we are at the bottom and on the way up. I can almostdefinitely say we are on the bottom and believe we have been there for the past year. It would take a really unusual event to stop forward progress.
