Alyssa is an accomplished Greater Boston Area Realtor® who discovered her passion for Real Estate when she bought her first home in 2013. From there on out, she wanted to learn everything that she could about buying and selling homes. After immersing herself in the education and training at Lamacchia Realty, she could ensure that she would be able to support her clients’ needs whether it was their first home purchase or their fifth home sale.
She has lived in various areas of Massachusetts including Metrowest, Boston and she currently resides in Waltham so she has a well rounded understanding of a number of different areas. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management from Johnson & Wales University in Providence where she learned that client service skills are of utmost importance. Her goal when working with any client, is to make the process of buying or selling real estate as seamless as possible.
Outside of Work I Enjoy:
“Traveling has to be my favorite pastime as I love to learn about different cultures and eat, eat, eat! It’s great to get out of your comfort zone once in a while and come back completely refreshed!”
Do You Have Any Pets?:
“We rescued a lab/husky mix who is a ball full of energy. He’s kind of like my co-worker at this point.. the kind of co-worker who wants to take breaks all the time and go for walks!”
Favorite Part of My Job:
“My favorite part of my job has to be when I get to exceed my client’s expectations. It could be giving the call that they won a bidding war against 20+ offers (without breaking the bank!) or that they sold their house for far more than they ever thought possible. When your client truly trusts that you’re truly going to go above and beyond to do a fantastic job for them, the possibilities are endless.”
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
I closed on my first home in December after working with Alyssa O'Grady, and I couldn't have asked for a better guide to help me through the process. She's a great listener who took the time to understand what my girlfriend and I were looking for in a home, and was patient with us while working hard to share lots of options until we found the perfect spot! She was consultative in identifying pro's AND con's of the properties we checked out based on our needs so we could make educated decisions that we felt confident about. She also has a great network in the industry which helped simplify my closing process for me. I highly recommend working with Alyssa, thanks for making my first home-buying experience a painless one!
We worked with Alyssa Spear O'Grady and could not be any happier with our experience. Alyssa took the time to get to know our family and properly connect us with listings that not only met our physical requirements but also our social interests. Alyssa was almost immediate with replys to our questions and made each step of the long process clear and anticipated; no surprises or issues with the buying process! Beyond her clear experitise, Alyssa is a wonderful person to spend time with, and we never felt like we were wasting time looking around...we loved talking with her and building a friendship! Thanks so much for a great experience, we cannot reccomend Alyssa enough.
When choosing a real estate agent, you want someone who you can trust, someone who really understands what your needs are and someone who is going to do their very best for you. Alyssa Spear O’Grady possesses all of these qualities, and many others which we didn’t even realize were so important at the start. Not only did Alyssa ultimately help get us into our forever home, but she was literally on top of everything for us. She maintained a calm demeanor during what proved to be at times a nerve racking experience for me. She took the time to explain everything and make suggestions, but she never overstepped any boundaries. Alyssa was patient with my husband and me during our search and if he and I became frustrated or veered off course, Alyssa was always this pillar for us. She remained positive, listened to us and guided us in this way where she really helped us to realize exactly what it was that we were looking for. Alyssa was extremely thorough and prompt in returning calls/texts/ emails. Her correspondence always clear and carried a very friendly undertone, which made me feel extremely comfortable with her. Alyssa’s contacts were so important to us! She recommended our lending company, real estate lawyer, and inspector. They all were amazing to work with each one of them spoke very highly of Alyssa. So important. Alyssa’s warm and inviting personality helped us develop positive interpersonal relationships with all of these people. Even the seller and her agent enjoyed working with Alyssa. Her happy, pleasant manner had a positive impact on everyone. I really can’t say enough about how wonderful Alyssa is and my family and I feel so extremely fortunate for having had her on our side during our first home buying experience! She knew the ins and outs of the market, had the necessary tools in her contacts, and genuinely cared about helping to bring our dreams to fruition. Thank you, Alyssa!!
Me and my husband recently closed on a condo with Alyssa Spear O'Grady's help. She was absolutely incredible! She’s super-responsive, very timely and precise with her communication. She is super-patient with all your questions, and is always there when you need her. To say that she went above and beyond what’s expected of her would be an understatement - she even helped us get city permits for some external work that we needed done and gave us invaluable inputs as regards homeowner’s insurance, and utilities setup. She always provided us with the information to make decisions. Everything was always mine and my husband’s decision, and she would provide an input if we asked her, but she never pressurized us in any way. Her biggest contribution to us was making the entire process totally stress-free.
It was great fun working with her. She is impressively knowledgeable of the real estate market, and is always ready with answers to questions you may have. She is great to hang out with as well. She is everything we’d hoped our realtor would be and so much more!!! Completely Awesome. We highly recommend her!
This summer we closed on a new condo with the help of Alyssa Spear O'Grady and the team at Lamacchia Realty. Alyssa is a phenomenal realtor - we cannot recommend her enough! This was our first home-buying experience so not only were we newbies with lots of questions, but I'm also extremely type-A so anyone we worked with had to be very attentive to detail and responsive. Alyssa was exceptionally professional, organized and proactive throughout the entire process, a great listener who really understood our needs and wants, and who kept us informed at every step so we weren't waiting and wondering. You truly feel as if you're her only client. We were also very impressed with the rest of the Lamacchia team and every partner they recommended, from our mortgage broker to legal counsel to home inspector (all who clearly love working with Alyssa as well). We felt nothing but confidence in Alyssa's abilities from the very first meeting. We couldn't be happier with our new home and with the journey we took to get here! And we owe that all to Alyssa and Lamacchia Realty!
My wife and I were looking to sell our condo and purchase our first home. After a thorough spin through local realtors on Zillow, Lamacchia Realty stood out as the top choice with it's near perfect rating and sheer number of satisfied clients.
After a pleasant chat with an associate, we were matched up with Alyssa Spear O'Grady.
Our first time meeting her at our condo could not have gone better. She was very friendly and she was able to explain the home selling process in a way that made total sense. What was an overwhelming process to us at first, got broken down into digestible, bite-size steps. Alyssa was there for us from the initial listing to the final sale. We were always able to contact her and she was always there for us when we had a question.
I'd like to specially point out her understanding when she stuck with us when I ended up getting laid off while our house up for sale. She reassured me, we worked out a game plan, and once I found a job again, we ended up selling the house shortly after for a great price. What could have been a disaster, ended up only being a minor speed bump on what was an otherwise smooth road to a sale.
My wife and I are really thankful for all the guidance and help Alyssa provided along the way. We highly recommend her and Lamacchia Realty.
I have always had a great experience with Lamacchia Reality! They are a very well put together team of realestate agents. This is my third time I worked with them. My family has used Lamacchia realestate atleast 12 times. They are awesome! Recently I had Alyssa O'grady as my realestate agent. She found me a property exactly what I was looking for. She is very professional and the Best realestate agent! I'm looking forward to working with Alyssa again in the future!
We had an excellent experience with Lamacchia Realty in what can be a very stressful process - buying your first home! Especially in Metro West! and in our price range! Needless to say, our agent, Alyssa, had her work cut out for her! She handled our nervousness, stress, and hopes beautifully as she helped us wind our way through so many open houses and showings - I can't keep count! Alyssa always knew which questions to ask, where to dig deeper, and how to help us get clearer on what we really wanted. We are so happy in our new home and it's all because of how comfortable Alyssa made us feel and how helpful she was in making the home become ours! Lamacchia is outstanding - you won't be disappointed.
Alyssa at Lamacchia was absolutely wonderful. She understood just what we would need as we considered moving out of the city and into the burbs. She was so incredibly patient, supportive, thorough, and knowledgeable. We would not be so happy in our new home if it weren't for her tireless work in making it happen!
We wanted to let Anthony Lamacchia know how wonderful it was to work with Alyssa Spear O'Grady. We had a difficult sale and Alyssa was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. She is an amazing asset to your organization and when we are ready to buy we would love to work with Alyssa again. Everyone we worked with at Lamacchia was great and we are very happy with our experience.
I recently closed on a condo with Alyssa Spear's help. She was amazing! Finding a place that met all my needs and fell within my tight budget was really challenging in this market and Alyssa was there to help every step of the way. She often sent me listing ideas and really paid attention to my list of must have's. She was also really fast to respond to my many questions. Alyssa was always easy to get ahold of and quick to reach out to other realtors to get my questions answered.
This was my first home purchase and so everything was new to me. Alyssa explained everything very clearly and helped me feel confident all of the aspects of each offer we submitted. Alyssa was also never pushy about anything. She laid out my options and offered her opinion but also made it very clear that everything was my choice and I never felt pressured to spend more than I was comfortable with.
After the offer was accepted, Alyssa was still really easy to get ahold of and helped me get started on getting insurance and utilities set up.
Working with Alyssa was a really positive experience and I am so glad that I did! I would highly recommend her!
Don't Alyssa's age fool you, she is *incredibly* knowledgable and hard working. She helped us to find the perfect home for our needs in a very challenging market.
Alyssa was an absolutely amazing realtor. We were looking to sell our condo and buy our first home and were finding that the buying/selling process and Greater Boston housing market to be both daunting and stressful. Alyssa stepped in and put our minds at ease. Not only did she help us sell our condo, but she was able to help us purchase the perfect new home. If you're looking to buy or sell, look no further than Alyssa O'Grady. She is extremely professional, honest, a great listener and provides expert real estate knowledge — with lots of tips and tricks to secure a sale in a very competitive market. She's extremely responsive and goes above and beyond for ALL of her clients. We couldn't be happier with our decision to work with her. Thanks again Alyssa, we absolutely love our new home!
As first time home buyers, we were fully expecting to be overwhelmed by the home shopping process. Alyssa made sure we were excited and level headed, while also using all of her tools and technology to ensure that our process was streamlined and always on track. She was VERY responsive to all of our questions and any concerns that came up along the way and made sure we ended up in a home that more than exceeded our goals. Homeowners for a month now and couldn't be happier with our experience and results!
Alyssa Spear O'Grady at Lamacchia was absolutely what we were looking for and needed in a realtor. She was not only an expert on the market but listened to what we were looking for and helped us find the perfect place for us. Beyond our home search, Alyssa was amazing at working with the rest of our team and keeping the schedule on time and managed our expectations throughout the process. From the very beginning through the closing we knew we could trust Alyssa to guide us and she was a great advisor, honest and understanding and was a major reason we were able to purchase our first home!
Alyssa recently helped me to purchase my home and was there every step along the way. She was responsive whenever I needed her and she was very efficient with my time so I could sign the necessary documents from anywhere on my phone. I would highly recommend her if you’re looking to purchase a home.
I have to say working with Alyssa was a breeze. From meeting #1 she really listened to what I was looking for in purchasing my first place. I can’t say the same for other realtors I’ve dealt with in the past. She also knows what she’s talking about and lucky for me I learned to listen to her as well. I was purchasing in a seller’s market which was highly competitive. I honestly didn’t anticipate buying so quickly due to market conditions. The place I ended up buying I believe had 6+ bids on it. I had crunched a few numbers to determine my offer and I was basically set on that number. With some polite persuasion on Alyssa’s behalf, she convinced me to amend my offer. I believe her knowledge of the local market and her nudging me in the right direction was the direct cause of my offer finally being accepted. I would highly recommend working with her if you want as smooth of a home buying process as possible.
Being first-time home buyers in an incredibly competitive market, my husband and I were overwhelmed. Every time we went to an open house packed full of 30 other young couples trying to see the same property, or watched each house we liked go for $30K over asking, we freaked. We didn’t understand the process, we felt we’d never find anything in our price range…we were STRESSED. We knew we needed a realtor to help and tried to work with several without luck. It seemed that no one wanted to work with first-time home buyers. We had too many questions that required too much of their time to answer. And when they did answer, it was days to weeks later. Then we found Alyssa and everything changed.
From the beginning of our relationship to when we closed on our perfect home, Alyssa was nothing short of incredibly professional. She spent the amount of time with us that we needed to completely understand the process and our options, as well as answer every question we had thoroughly and promptly (often within minutes of sending our emails). She made it a point to come to as many open houses with us as she could (and there were a lot), and when she couldn’t, she always created and sent detailed schedules with accompanying information so we could guide ourselves. When we finally found the house that we wanted, she put an enormous amount of effort and practically stayed up all night with us to make sure that we crafted an offer that would win against the competition…and it did…on the first try.
In addition to being a true professional who knows her craft, Alyssa is a great person and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her to ANYONE looking to score their dream house in this market.
I would like to say Alyssa has been excellent in helping me purchase a new home. I was a first time buyer and Alyssa made the process very smooth and easy. She was always easy to reach and responded to any of my questions very quickly and thoroughly. Whenever I found a place I wanted to look at, Alyssa would be quick to set up a time that would work for me. Eventually I did find the place I was interested in and she was quick to get the offer submitted within the same day. With her help, I was able to win the bid. If you want a true professional who is easy to work with, great communication skills, and puts in a lot of effort to helping you find your next home, I would highly recommend that you try Alyssa.
I worked with the Real Estate Agent, Alyssa Spear. I had a great experience working with Alyssa, who was very on top of new listings, organizing showings and being flexible on time. Alyssa was very helpful with advice and genuinely cared about my satisfaction in purchasing a condo. I would highly recommend (and in fact, did recommend) Alyssa to other home buyers.
