MEET OUR TEAM
As the Principal of the Gillach Group, Mary brings 15 years of consulting and executive management experience. As a new broker in 2001, she quickly built a sustainable and successful practice. Based on a professional services model, her team is comprised of field assistants, sales agents, marketing specialists and administrative staff. The result of which is a team aligned to seamlessly meet the needs of our clients – busy, accomplished, smart folks who need to buy the perfect home – or sell their current one in the most profitable and painless way possible. Our team is steeped in the vagaries of residential real estate, so you don’t have to be!
Exceptional analysis, service, and results. Mary has continually ranked among the top 10 agents in the Boston Metro since 2003. She also holds the distinction of being the area’s top buyer’s agent since 2003.
Joe joined The Gillach Group after a successful 35-year career within the global consulting industry. Joe served as an executive with IBM, KPMG, CSC and Sapient.

Joe believes in working proactively to identify real estate opportunities and to expedite their sales, purchases and closing processes for his clients.
Joe is a lifelong resident of the Boston area and has lived in West Newton for the past 25 years. He has been a local real estate investor for years, primarily in the Boston condominium market.

Buying her first home with her husband in the Boston suburbs ignited Noha’s interest in real estate. Meeting new people and helping clients find the right house to call home is her passion. She strives to be someone in whom her clientele and colleagues can put their trust and faith. Every transaction, she believes, is always about the customer. “You are the driver, I am the passenger who’s there to guide, educate, and provide the best service possible.” She knows how to listen and is generous in offering information. While Noha is a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients, she is just as much a compassionate, friendly, humorous partner who eases a process that can often be quite stressful.
Raised in Maryland, she graduated from University of Maryland with a degree in Communications/Public Relations. Noha currently lives in Winchester and in her free time is busy baking, reading, and spending time with her loving husband and two energetic sons.
Brian joined the Gillach Group with a wealth of real estate experience. He spent many years working as an real estate office manager and independent agent in Downtown Boston and the surrounding areas. Brian’s prior experience has given him a deep understanding of the local real estate market, market trends and deal management. He aims to give every client the same guidance and commitment as he would a valued friend.
Raised in southern New Jersey, Brian moved to Boston in 2006 and currently lives in West Newton. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, cooking and long hikes with his four dogs.
