WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
Alex Montalto and team from Lamacchia Realty were nothing short of stellar. What surprised us the most was how proactive, professional, organized, thoughtful, energetic, and caring he was about what to many other realtor agencies might just be an impersonal transaction with a commission at the end of it. Alex gets an A+ on three very important C's: communication, coordination and collaboration. He is a pleasure to work with. It was obvious to us too that it would not matter if he were helping us sell a $400K home or a $2M home - his professionalism and energy would be the same. He took amazing care with our needs and emotions, and most importantly: our most valuable investment - our home.
We can't say enough great things about Alex Montalto from Lamacchia Realty. From beginning to end, he made the entire selling process seem so easy and seamless. The entire support staff at Lamacchia was amazing and we cannot recommend Alex enough if you want an agent that will answer all your questions (sometimes multiple times!!!) and help to make the whole selling process fun and exciting, which is the way it should be! Thank you again Alex!!!
I would highly recommend Lamacchia Realty to anyone selling or buying a home. We’ll definitely use them if we ever decided to sell or buy property in the future. We found them very helpful, professional, easy to contact, quick to respond and always kept us in the loop. We're especially grateful to both Anthony Castellano and Alex Montalto who were a tremendous help from start to finish!
When I first spoke to Alex, my main concerns were to get a good price for my house and to sign both closings in the same day. He told me they would do their best to accomplish that....and they did. I have nothing but good things to say about Alex (selling agent),Walter (buying agent) and Katie (back in the offices). I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Thanks for your great work
My wife Katie and I wanted to write you a quick message about our amazing experience with our great agent Alex Montalto. I am so glad that our friend Jim Innamorati recommended that we use Lamacchia for our home buying Real Estate Company. My wife and I had been house hunting for quite some time prior to working with Lamacchia and Alex. We are very glad that we made this decision. Throughout the year that we worked with Alex, he was always available to take our calls, answers any questions or concerns that we had, and ready to show us a property at any time. I know that he has more clients, but he made us feel like we were the only ones he was working with. Alex went above and beyond our expectations by working through the Christmas Holiday to get our offer accepted. Once we finally had our offer accepted, Alex helped us navigate the stressful experience all the way to the close. As first time home buyers, he held our hand throughout the entire process. We are both grateful that we were able to work with Alex and will definitely be recommending him to our friends.
Our agent Alex was very knowledgeable about the market, area, and things to look out for. We were in a very competitive market and submitted multiple offers on different places. Alex never pressured us to submit any offers we were not comfortable and never hesitated to submit them for us. He always took our calls for questions, concerns, and whatever else we needed. He could not have made this process any better. I highly recommend using Lamacchia and Alex with you home purchase.
Once we decided to sell our home we did our research on the top realtors in our area and that led us to Lamacchia Realty. Alex and the Lamacchia team were great to deal. We were well informed during the sale of our home and the entire process went very smooth.
Alex is very helpful when it comes to buying a house. He coordinates with other professionals and ensures a timely closing. Thanks to Lamacchia Reality they have partnered with other services which was very helpful through out the process of my home buying.
I decided it was time after renting for so long to purchase a home. So, like anyone else I was online looking at properties. I saw a property that I liked and enter the “Contact Me” information. I received a call from a couple of realtors soon after and just didn’t get the sense that they were invested in my search. Then I got a call from Alex Montaldo from Lamacchia Realty the same day and he told me that the property that I was interested in was already sold (by the way the other realtors who contacted me left that part out). After chatting with Alex for a bit we set up an appointment to meet in their Woburn office.
During the time of speaking with Alex on the phone and meeting with him I had a change of plans and told him that we decided to sell my mom’s property and purchase a new home together. He smiled and said ok sounds good! Keeping in mind I have never purchased a home before let alone sell one. Alex was awesome he explained the process to me and what I would need to do to ready my mom’s property for sale. We had the open house and it was a success and the next day we received multiple offers. Alex was great he walked us through each offer and guided us in our decision. We accepted an offer then thought oh no now we need a house! Alex said don’t worry we’ll find you the house you want!
Because mom and I were moving in together we had specific criteria to the type of property we wanted 😊. Alex had been sending some properties along and we only looked at two! The second one we fell in love with and made an offer. So basically, sold the house on Monday and purchased the new home on Thursday the same week!
I was a bundle of nerves and had so many questions. Alex was there to answer my questions no matter what time of the day it was! We had some bumps in the road…not due to Lamacchia Realty but other situations that came up and Alex stepped up and straightened things out for us. All along “talking me off the ledge”. Once closings were over and we moved in to our new beautiful home we were a bit sad thinking Alex would go his way and we would go ours but, that’s not the case I truly believe we became friends and I still call and or text just to check in!
For a first time experience I can’t say enough about Alex or Lamacchia Reality! They are so professional yet fun to work with. They made the process an overall great experience. I would recommend Lamacchia Realty to anyone who is looking to purchase and/or sell a property. You see their commercials on TV and it’s true how they say they have the experienced and knowledge to get you through the difficult market that’s out there today. I want to say a big Thank You to everyone at Lamacchia Realty and wish them much success!!!
Thankful, grateful, and appreciative – those words just simply cannot truly express what I am feeling regarding the incredible work done by both of your groups in the accomplished sale of my condo. I am thoroughly impressed. You were very professional and at the same time very “human.” There are a number of people to thank. There is Krissy Axon and Angela Walker, Alex Montalto, and Dave Karoly. Everyone named helped me in one way or another and I thank them for their help. And, last but not least, Nora Newhard – I felt completely at ease with Nora who handled the closing side of the whole process. Without hesitation I will always recommend you to anyone who asks. From the core of my being – thank you, very much. It is comforting knowing that there are businesses and professionals dedicated to helping the regular, everyday person.
Anthony, I wanted to take a moment to try to put into words how deeply grateful I am for everything you and your team at Lamacchia Realty and Dorner Law have done to make the sale of my house in Beverly happen. Everyone I have worked with during this process has been wonderful. It was such an amazing experience having so many people that were on my side, pushing to make sure this sale went through. Every time I called with a question or sent an email, I always received a fast response and they always helped to put my frazzled nerves at ease. You have such an extraordinary staff, I hate to leave anyone out because EVERYONE was great, but I am so grateful to you, Alex Montalto and Dave Karoly. Angela Walker was also wonderful in answering every question I had about the process and very understanding about my worries but set me at ease each time. Now that this is all over, I feel like I can breathe again. I can finally move on with my life and start planning my future. It felt like this day would never come, but thanks to Lamacchia Realty, it finally has. Thank you so much for this. My Deepest Gratitude
Alex Montalto was absolutely amazing to work with. He listened to our needs and wants, steered us in the right direction and helped us find the perfect home! Alex was also very responsive, which was a huge plus! I would not hesitate to recommend either Alex Montalto or Lamacchia Realty to friends and family.
Alex and his team did an amazing job selling my house quickly.
My family and I had a wonderful experience with Lamacchia realty. Alex Montalto was an amazing agent who helped us navigate through the process from start to finish. We were at a crucial time financially and needed to sell our home and it was a very simple and fair exchange all around. Thank you Alex and Lamacchia for all of your helpful support. We truly appreciate it.
Dealing with Lamacchia realty was a great experience. It was much easier than I expected from start to finish. Alex kept in touch with me, gave all the guidance I need, when I need it, and answered all my questions. He told me everything I had to do and when to do it and who to contact. For all city paper work and meter reads he moved everything right along with no issues. The best part, my house sold in 3 days! I was very pleased with the whole experience!
Our experience with Lamacchia Realty was excellent. The whole team was very knowledgeable and stepped us thru each and every step. On a professional level they were the best that I have dealt with. Our agent Alex Montalto was always available for us and was extremely responsive. The showings started 2 days after the listing and didn’t stop for 22 days. That’s the best part we accepted an offer after 22 days on the market!!
We had our property appraised about 6 months before we listed by an independent appraiser. Alex at Lamacchia put the suggested sell price right on the money. Once they put it on all of the ML services the calls started coming in immediately. We had a full price offer in 24 hours and 3 more in a week. closed without a hitch. I didn’t even have to show up to the closing! These guys take care of everything.
I had a great experience working with Alex Montalto of Lamacchia Realty. Alex handled both the sale of my home and the purchase of my condo. His level of professionalism, knowledge and response rate far exceeded my expectations. He went above and beyond to make sure both real estate transactions went as smoothly as possible. I was very pleased with his pre-market evaluation of my house as well as his marketing strategy. As a result, my home sold within 6 days and Alex was able to negotiate an extended closing date with the buyers while we looked for a condo. He sent me listings daily and was very accommodating to my schedule for showings. He was always prompt in getting back to me if I had any questions or concerns. Once we found the right condo Alex did an excellent job negotiating on my behalf. In the end he was able to schedule both closings on the same day which was not an easy thing to do. I highly recommend Alex Montalto to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. He truly cares about his clients.
To the Lamacchia Realty Team,
I am writing to thank you as I recently closed on the sale of my home. I first reached out to your team at the end of 2010. The market conditions, at the time, were still very poor, especially where my home was located in the central part of the state, in fact, my town had made it onto the “Top ten most depressed cities” in the Commonwealth! Due to several unforeseen circumstances regarding an issue with an irregular property line the closing of the home was delayed for a long, long time! Anthony’s team, and his associates at Dorner Law have worked many hours on the sale of my home and I can say with certainty that this came at a financial loss for the company. Anthony persevered on principle, and that is very uncommon in this day and age.
It still amazes me that I would get a phone call from one of the owners of the company (Anthony) well after normal working hours several times a month to check in with me and answer any questions I had along the way. I cannot say enough about this company. When I say Lamacchia team, it is for a reason. Everyone I had interaction with was top notch; Anthony, Dave Karoly, June Schaufus, Angela Walker, Krissy Axon, Alex Montalto and the entire staff at Dorner Law. They operate as a cohesive unit, and I always felt as if I was their top priority.
Although I prefer to remain anonymous, I can tell you I am absolutely a real person and I would recommend to anyone who may read this letter to trust all your real estate needs to Lamacchia Realty, they are absolutely the best in the business.
