See what our past clients have to say about their experiences with Lamacchia Realty:
Joselin Zagami Malkhasian was a consummate professional throughout our entire home search and purchase process. She listened to our wants and desires in a home, and regularly sent us appropriate listings. She was honest during all home tours, and when we finally found "the one," she was there for us from offer to closing. We cannot recommend Joselin enough, and are so happy that we found her to guide us through our first home purchase!
From 10 minutes after I first e-mailed Alyssa Spear O'Grady (that's how quickly she got back to me!) to the final walk through and beyond, Alyssa was an absolutely wonderful agent to work with. Not only is she kind and friendly (an added bonus in a sometimes competitive field!), but she's incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and professional.
When I first started looking to buy, I was using a different agent service, and I never felt like a priority or that my offers were being constructed to win out in such a highly competitive market. When I switched to working with Alyssa, the approach she took and the personal attention she gave were a complete 180 from where I was before. Alyssa knew the ins and outs of the local Boston market, helping me think about everything I needed to consider, the pros and cons of different offer contingencies, and ultimately how to construct an offer that was competitive, but that I was also comfortable with. Ultimately, I got my offer accepted on a wonderful condo that I'm almost certain I wouldn't have won without her expertise and assistance.
In addition, Alyssa's has a wide network of people in the business that she works with often and who all respect her greatly. She was therefore able to refer me to so many helpful people that I worked with throughout the offer, financing, inspecting, and closing process. This is a testament to her knowledge, her experience, and how pleasant it is for everyone, from all sides, to work with her.
Without a doubt, I would recommend Alyssa to anyone looking to buy a home!
I would like to share that Team Jill and Di were sensational. They made an emotional and difficult sell easier!!!!!! Selling the family home is so hard but with their knowledge and expertise the journey had a happy ending. My family home was sold to a young couple and they are now enjoying my family home making memories in the neighborhood I grew up in. I would highly recommend them. They know their stuff
My wife and I worked with Bernie to purchase our first home. We were looking for the perfect home close to our son’s elementary school in Waltham. We had such a wonderful experience. Bernie is personable, knowledgeable and well prepared. He made sure that we understood the entire process, and ensured it all went smoothly from start to finish, and was always available to talk to us if we had any questions or concerns. We highly recommend Bernie for all your real estate needs
Working with Paul Cervone was a pleasure. Paul was very efficient and very kind to where me and my wife felt very confident to trust within the process. This is our first investment property and we feel very blessed to have worked with Paul to help us choose the right property and guide us throughtout the process. We really appreciate his hard work and we will make sure to recommend his help to others. Thank you Paul, and we hope to work by your side again sometime in the future.
Working with Alyssa Spear O'Grady was a great experience for my fiancé and I as first time home buyers. After deciding to move forward with buying a home we gave Alyssa a call. She was super helpful and informative from the first phone call onward. Throughout the process she was great at guiding us and knowing exactly what we needed to do and when we needed to do it. “On top of it” is a phrase that comes to mind while we were working with her (not overbearing mind you)… mix that with her positive attitude and congenial personality and it was a great fit for us! I would absolutely, 100%, recommend her for anyone buying a home!
Lamacchia Realty was great to work worth! They are extremely in tune to the current market conditions and have a vast amount of tools to help you land your dream house. I specifically worked with Anthony Castellano and will be doing so for future home purchases. He had a quick and thorough answer for all my questions and made me feel as though I was his only customer. Thumbs up all around!
Efficient,friendly, knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions. Great team, works together to get you into your dream house quickly. Mike got us into our home before it even went to market! Excellent customer service, would definitely recommend!
Working with Joselin and all the resources at Lamacchia Realty made the buying and selling process so much less stressful than it could have been. Joselin is an expert at smoothing any bumps in the road that might come up, she knows the real estate values in the area, knows how to price houses to get them moving. And she's just been a pleasure to work with from start to finish! We highly recommend Lamacchia Realty to anyone interested in buying, selling or both. The whole team at Lamacchia is responsive, helpful, patient, professional and knowledgeable. We couldn't have done it without them!
Friendly, efficient group of people who works together to get everything in order for us, amazing customer service!
As first time home buyers, my husband and I were extremely happy with the service and support that Cam provided and would definitely recommend him to others. He was responsive to all of our questions (and we had a lot!), drove us around on multiple days to multiple open houses and genuinely wanted to make sure we found a home we were excited about. He made sure we were fully prepared for our closing and coordinated everything we needed with the sellers and their agent. He executed the negotiation well against competing offers. We wouldn't be in our new home without him.
Thank you Cam
Before we met Cam, our house search was proceeding slowly even though we were working with an agent and the clock was ticking as we had already sold our house and wanted to buy a new property. We were working with an agent who for whatever reason, we did not manage to build a rapport. He was not very proactive or responsive. We got feedback only on listings that we had found. What’s the point of having an agent, if he/she is not looking with you and opening your horizons?
And then we met Cam. We met Cam at an open house and immediately formed a rapport. He came over to our house for an orientation on a Sunday and gave us a market overview of areas we were interested in. After our experience with the previous agent, my partner, who doesn’t like to mince words asked Cam point blank if we were going to be a priority. He said yes. And he kept his word. He did not disappoint us. He proposed houses, combined his list with ours and toured selected properties with us. He listened to both of us (as buying a house is a process of negotiation) to understand what we were looking for in our new home. He was also very proactive and helpful in drawing up each offer we made and handling the negotiating process which is tricky in a very competitive seller's market such as Boston. He was also very patient when we changed our minds about a couple of properties.
When it came time to make offers, we particularly liked the way he determined a good price for a likely winning offer, based on a comparison of recent list prices and actual sale prices. In the end, we ended up buying a condo in an area of Boston that we had initially ignored and are enjoying getting to know this new neighborhood. Without hesitation, we would recommend Cam.
We worked with Sacha at Lamacchia for almost 2 years before finding our dream home!
We first got in touch with Sacha after requesting a showing for a house listed on Zillow - the house was already under agreement but she met with us (first time homebuyers) to understand what we were looking for and what our timelines were. When we first started looking we were not in a huge rush to find a house and she did not push us in any way.
As we got further along in the process and got more serious about buying the right home, she was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and helped us navigate the process from beginning to end. This was very important to us as we were both new at it all. We even had an offer accepted on another house and ended up backing out - Sacha helped us along but did not pressure us to make a decision we were not comfortable with. We finally found a house we both LOVED and had to have. She came with us and helped us get in front of the selling agents. We had our offer accepted the next day after she helped us negotiate a little to make sure everyone was comfortable with the final offer.
Lamacchia was amazing the entire process and put up with our indecisiveness for almost 2 years 🙂 I would highly recommend them, especially to first time homebuyers!
Have you found yourself thinking how rare it is to find competence lately? Are you unsure sometimes when you contract with a professional, that they are indeed competent enough to do exactly what it is that you are asking them to?
I used to have the same trust issues, but no longer.
What cured me? ANGELA RAVESI. Competent, professional, polite, responsive. An excellent, intelligent negotiator.
Karole O’Leary has been an excellent, reliable and trusted professional in selling my condo. Karole and her administrative assistant Meaghan are a great team. I’d highly recommend the Lamacchia Worcester Team. Great job! Thanks!
Yana Ellowitz handled the selling of my mothers house. It went on the market on a Friday and we had our first offer the next day and that offer was the buyer who ended up buying the house. She was very receptive and always a phone call away. She kept us updated on all aspects of the sale and personally handled anything that I was unavailable to do. Yana found us a painter and a asbestos abatement contractor, both of whom did a great job, and showed up on the date and time they promised to be at the house. I would definitely refer Yana to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. Thank you Yana!
I give my highest recommendation for Mark Gorden. As a first time homebuyer, I appreciated Mark's responsiveness to my questions, as well as his knowledge and support throughout the buying process. He was always prompt, trustworthy, and incredibly helpful. It was clear to me from the first time I met Mark that he is dedicated to his clients and passionate about his field. Mark is a clear communicator and he was always there for me through every stage of my condo buying process!
As someone who is new to the housing market and real estate in general, Vinny did a great job in teaching me the "do's and don't's" of the industry as well as how to independently assess so that I can make educated decisions in the future. Vinny is patient and understands timeline and do not shy from providing honest opinions around properties. He is not looking for a quick sale,but is looking to support your vision and truly get you a home that you'll be proud of for years to come. I look forward to working with him in the future. I am excited to see Vinny excel in his real estate endeavors.
We loved working with Paul Cervone as our agent! We were first time homebuyers and new to the area. Paul quickly led us to our dream home and helped us craft a winning bid as there were multiple offers on the home. As first time home buyers we greatly appreciated Paul’s advice and guidance throughout the whole process. Paul was always on top of it! We had a lot of questions and Paul was always available for a call, text, or email. Thanks to Paul we got our dream home and would highly recommend him to anyone looking!
Amie Balchunas was incredible! Our condo sold in 20 something days. Amie & her team were professional, knowledgeable, & fun to deal with. I highly recommend LaMarchia Realty.
