Agent Details

Meet Lorraine

Licensed Real Estate Agent
House hunting is not an easy process - between the time spent viewing properties, the emotional toll of navigating moves, and the negotiation required to win the deal, real estate offers plenty of challenges, which is why it’s so important to have a trustworthy, honest expert ready to go to bat for your dream – and Lorraine Gately is just the person to take the swing. A Melrose native, Lorraine proudly serves her hometown, as well as all the surrounding neighborhoods north of Boston, and she adores the family-centric atmosphere the area offers.

As caring as she is hardworking, Lorraine has been a highly sought-after agent since 1992. With degrees in both sociology and psychology, Lorraine has both the communication skills and compassion to guide clients through the often stressful process of buying and selling. She has been honing her craft for over 20 years, first working for Marie Wood and then Century 21. She’s earned prestigious designations along the way, including certifications as a Senior Real Estate Specialist, for working with seniors and addressing their particular needs, and a Seller Real Estate Specialist. 

Known by clients as a trustworthy and responsive agent, Lorraine prides herself on her client-first approach and being able to help clients achieve their goals. She works with buyers who are down-sizing and embarking on the next phase of their lives, as well as first-time buyers who are brand new to the process. Perhaps it’s her background in psychology or her naturally kind spirit and respectful demeanor, but Lorraine excels in guiding clients through the emotional, often sensitive journey of letting go of a family home or taking the most important financial step of their lives. Hands-on and highly responsive, Lorraine makes herself available to clients any time of day and offers access to the best contractors, stagers, attorneys, and mortgage brokers in the business. 

When Lorraine isn’t working with clients, you can find her out in the garden, on the golf course, or skiing. A wife and mother of two, Lorraine is also a board member of Melrose Sharing and Caring, a nonprofit providing aid to special needs children. Lorraine’s beloved pup, Vail, an English Cream Retriever, is always by her side, greeting clients with a smile and a snuggle.
