Clients are saying:
"Where do I begin? Lisa exceeded our expectations at ever turn. She beautifully staged our property, helped us price it and market it to attract a lot of buyers and sold our property significantly above the list price in a matter of days. In advance of our sale, she put in significant time and resources (and instructed us in all the fixes and decluttering we needed to do) in order to make our listing pop. We had an offer within 24 hours and then, after our open houses, we had multiple offers.
On top of her exceptional skills, competencies and smart, speedy work, Lisa is a delight to work with. She was respectful of our space, time and concerns. She listened to our ideas and incorporated them into our strategy. Lisa went above and beyond to put our needs first. Every step of the way we felt like she truly appreciated the significance and weight of this life event and did everything she could to put our needs first and make this a smooth process. We liked her so much we asked her to represent us in the purchase of our home in a completely different neighborhood, even though it was outside of her typical geographic scope. Again, she impressed at every turn and completely represented our interests at the negotiation table. I was so glad to have Lisa in our corner!"
"Lisa was an excellent resource in my home purchase process. I talked to her almost daily - no issue or concern was too small for her. She handled inspection and other issues immediately and head-on! She is not afraid of conflict; therefore, she is a great advocate for her clients. I am using her again for my home sale."
"Lisa was great; she supported us through the entire process of buying new construction. Highly recommend her."
"We met Lisa at an open house and started chatting. We mentioned that we were looking for two flats in the neighborhood for over a year with no success as the market was very competitive and we kept missing out. Lisa knew about a building that was not yet on the market, she took us to see it that day, we put in an offer and it was ours! All before it even hit the market! If it hadn’t been for Lisa’s connections and market knowledge we would not have our two flat today."
"We love our home, and Lisa is 90% of the reason we ended up where we did.
We met Lisa at an open house. We were just starting our search and weren't even sure what we wanted. But Lisa listened carefully and asked good questions to understand - and to help US understand! -
what we wanted. She helped educate us about many different neighborhoods we hadn't yet explored. We toured several houses (10-12) with her in various neighborhoods. She was very patient as we wavered between neighborhoods / types of homes (move-in ready or fixer-upper). She never put any pressure on us; she truly wanted us to find a home that we would be happy with. On a couple occasions, my husband and I were wow'd by "lipstick". She helpfully challenged us to see past the wow factors and scrutinize the critical aspects of the home.
When we finally made an offer (on a fixer-upper), she helped us successfully navigate a tricky multiple offer situation. She worked relentlessly on our behalf, but was always professional and respectful with the selling agent."
