See what our past clients have to say about their experiences with Lamacchia Realty:
I’d like to add a note in regards to a wonderful realtor, Michelle Wesson. Michele was recommended to me by and old friend and I can honestly say that I ma very happy I contacted her. She is pleasant, professional, straight forward and went above and beyond for me. I found myself in a tight situation where I had to move fast to find a new home. Michele was able to get things moving quickly and I can’t get over how smoothly the negotiations went. Her associates in the lending and legal fields both spoke highly of her and she was instrumental in keeping the lines of communication open with all involved. I’m happy to say that, even with my tight deadline and a few challenges I faced in cleaning up my credit before the closing, we were able to get it done and my son and I have a beautiful new home. Also, the dogs love the large back yard. Michelle gets 11 out 10 stars in my book!
Michelle Wesson was so wonderful to work with! I spent over a year looking for a house and she was patient, knowledgable, professional, and made herself available for showings and answering my endless questions! Would highly recommend working with her.
Michelle was absolutely everything we needed in a realtor. She was there to answer all our questions and more we never even thought of. As a first time home buyer on a budget we went through many houses and she was very upfront with where price points were and were very accurate in the current market. Michelle really had a great background in homes and understanding of work that may need be done. My father is a contractor and loved Michelle as she hit all the same points we did. Even after the purchase of the home, she was there for any post questions and overall made the experience one I would go through with her again any day. I highly recommend Michelle to my family and friends all the time. If your ever looking for a realtor Michelle should be your first stop.
I have been meaning to send this message for a few weeks now and the days have flown by. I want to take a minute to share with you our great appreciation for the work that both Michelle and Alex did throughout our home sale experience.
I should start by saying that your team deserves all the credit in making this sale happen. We didn’t have selling on our mind at the point when we received a call about the uptick in our home’s value. Having just welcomed our third baby the week before, we were thinking bottles and diapers not boxes and showings.
That said, the news was very encouraging and we agreed to meet Michelle and make a decision about our next steps with as much information as possible. That was all we needed. From the moment Michelle arrived we were confident that she had not only done her work in terms of understanding our property and pricing it to SELL, but she knew what this experience would mean for our family and along with Alex, provided ongoing sage advice to us as sellers. Their commitment to us THROUGHOUT the process was outstanding and reassured our every move.
We were shocked to see our home receive 3 offers (that’s a story for another day) in one weekend and thrilled when the 3rd finally stuck. Being available through text messaging, calls, and email allowed our lifestyle to work with Alex and Michelle at all times and never left us feeling burdensome or bothersome.
I currently work as a supervisor in a high school setting. I know how fortunate I am to have the competent and capable team that works with me every day. I am sure you are aware of the same and if by chance you aren’t hope to have shed some light on the reality that both Michelle and Alex are outstanding professionals. While the company name reflects yours, it is clear that the pride and dedication they show in their work shows great respect and appreciation for you and your team’s success.
For a short period of time, Alex and Michelle were part of our daily conversations. Interestingly enough we never met Alex face to face. Regardless, I have great confidence that should we need anything moving forward, the same extension of care and expertise will be available.
We chose to work with Lamacchia because we wanted to sell our home. In that process, we met some truly fantastic people and are now planning for our family to move on to a place where we can grow and dream bigger than we imagined.
I wish you many more years of success and know that with people like Alex and Michelle, there is no doubt it will happen.
When we decided to start looking to buy our new home, our first thought was to contact Michelle Wesson, our Realtor and long time friend. She was more than happy to assist us with our search, she came to our house, made a plan with us on areas we wanted to look, how much we were looking spend and pay for a monthly mortgage, the size of the house and land we had in mind. She was very knowledgeable about the listings that were and were not what we were looking for. Michelle went above and beyond what was expected of her. It was an overall great experience and we are very happy with our new home and with all of Michelle’s guidance.
We're glad to find Jason Niles as our agent while in Boston.
Hard working: We found Jason and requested tour / showing at the very last minute, yet, he quickly responded and gave us tour, even during the holiday time.
Knowledgeable: Jason patiently explained and educated us on the real estate in Boston as he knew all the areas, good / bad pockets, and the market very well.
Honesty: Jason was the real estate agent with heart, who gave an honest opinion. He's not the kind of realtor who only tried to get the deal done, made the money and go. He advised us on what the best / suitable was as if buying his own property. He loved helping people made money as his own success.
We highly recommend Jason Niles.
It’s been a little over a year in our new place and we couldn’t be happier! You know it’s a good move when your 4yr old tells his class he is thankful for his new house a year after the move. Thanks so much for helping us find our way here and looking at so many houses with our kids!!! Your patience and wisdom were greatly appreciated.
Darlene helped me purchase my first home one year ago. Being a first-time buyer I was looking for someone who I could trust. Darlene was the right choice! She showed me many homes which all peaked my interest and helped me narrow it down to exactly what I wanted. Darlene was also very accommodating to my difficult work schedule. She would often go out of her way to help me and was always patient, never pushy. By the end of the process, Darlene had gone from complete stranger to a friend who really cared about finding me the right home. Thanks, Darlene!
Excellent experience! I contacted Lamacchia Realty online and we received excellent support and responsiveness through all the process of buying our new house. Darlene Umina was our agent and she was simple incredible! She always gave us an excellent service, honest and wise recommendations. I will recommend Darlene and Lamacchia to anybody who wants to buy a house in Boston, Newton or Sudbury or Wayland.
Working with Darlene Umina was a great experience. We enlisted her help selling our first house and also buying our current home in the spring/summer of 2015. From pricing our home, to staging ideas, to fielding offers, she added a lot of value throughout the process of selling our house. And when we were searching for our new home she was very knowledgeable about market trends, neighborhoods, direction on estimates for repair costs, and really any other question I had. Most importantly she was always available to catch up over the phone and walk me through whatever issues I wanted to discuss. We had numerous conversations and I always felt like she was completely engaged in our common goals. She was basically our best friend for the 3.5 months between our first discussion and closing on our new home.
Overall, Darlene was very pleasant to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend her on both the buying and selling side!
We are now settled in a beautiful home in a perfect neighborhood for us, and we owe it all to the advice and guidance of Darlene Umina! She was very knowledgeable about the area and gave great insight into each neighborhood we visited. Darlene was extremely responsive – we always felt like she was working so hard on our behalf. And above all, she is really fun to work with! We highly recommend Darlene to anyone buying or selling a house. We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome.
Darlene Umina is an outstanding realtor. My husband and I were very picky about what we wanted in our home. Darlene was very patient with us and showed us homes up and above the normal amount of showings. She was always professional and very patient with us. We ended up in a great house in Marlborough and Darlene was very helpful in assisting us with the paperwork. We are in a great home that we love and a lot of the credit goes to Darlene and Lamacchia. We absolutely would work with this agency again!
Heather and I were extremely impressed with the level of service we received from your company, specifically Darlene. When I reached out to you back in November 2015, Heather and I had no idea what we were doing looking for a house. It didn’t even seem realistic. From day one, Heather and I felt 100% comfortable with Darlene. She represented us with our best interest in mind and I always felt like she was giving her most honest answer to all of my questions/concerns. Additionally, anytime I had an issue with our mortgage broker, our attorney, the seller, she would hop right on it and get it taken care of ASAP. She is great, and as first time home buyers, it was extremely important for us to have a realtor who made us feel comfortable. I will be sure to refer Lamacchia Realty to anyone I know buying/selling a house in New England.
We used Darlene Umina with Lamacchia Realty and were so pleased with how she conducted the selling of our townhouse and purchase of our new home. The other agent was extremely hard to work with, and Darlene was able to get the job done with class and professionalism. We highly recommend using Darlene as your agent!
Working with Lamacchia Realty, particularly Darlene Umina, was a great experience. Darlene was extremely organized, knowledgeable, responsible, and personable. I felt like I was in great hands as Darlene understood our priorities in finding a good home in town with great schools. She guided us to a town where she knew we’d have some affordable options. She was always honest and candid with her opinions, which was extremely important to us–we came to rely on her candid assessments in our decision making. When we finally decided to make an offer on a home and initiated the purchase process, Darlene navigated seamlessly despite less-than-personable seller-agent and sellers. I wholeheartedly recommend Darlene and the Lamacchia Team.
Darlene was a huge help throughout my home buying process and was amazing to work with. She put in so much time and effort and managed to make a stressful process simple. She took care of all the details for me and was available to answer any questions I had. She was attentive, organized, personable, and friendly. I highly recommend Darlene as a realtor to anyone looking to buy a home!
When it came to buying my first home, I immediately reached out to Darlene Umina from Lamacchia Realty for help. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her job. She responded to my numerous questions within minutes and always did her research if she wasn’t sure of the answer. Darlene turned what can be a painful experience into a very painless experience! I would highly recommend Darlene and Lamacchia Realty.
I really can’t say enough great things about Darlene from the Lamacchia Group. From the get-go, she worked to help us find our dream home. In less than a month, she helped us secure the perfect house for us. She is very quick to respond, she has an impressive knowledge of the market and the overall buy/sell process, and she always gave us honest but realistic advice. Buying a house is not an easy process, but Darlene made it as easy as it could be by giving us as much information as she had available, and always being there to answer our questions.
We sold our home with Darlene this past November and it was a great experience. With Darlene’s experience and advice we got an offer and accepted 5 days after listing!!! Darlene was amazing from start to finish. She was always there whenever we needed, and especially for me as I was emotional selling our first home. She lent an ear and always had the right words to put my fears and anxiety over moving at ease. She made the overwhelming experience of selling easy. I would highly recommend Darlene for buying/selling your home.
My fiancé and I were referred to Darlene Umina from a close friend at work in December of 2016. Right from the start, We knew she was going to be the perfect fit. We met at Starbucks on a Sunday morning prior to an open house for a home we were interested in. Darlene made sure to go over all the important topics of buying a home as we were first-time buyers! She gladly escorted us to this first home on the north shore. Making it a point to introduce ourselves to the seller’s realtor as we really liked the home. Instantly we knew we wanted to put in an offer. Darlene was so great that she was willing to pull over in her car the second we knew we wanted to put in an offer and wrote it all up right on the side of the road. With her quick speed and resilience, she helped us secure our first home on the first offer we had made with her! Even at a price way lower than what we expected with this booming market. Throughout the entire process, she could not be anything short of outstanding. Always so attentive and answering silly questions first time homebuyers may have. And the group of people she recommends i.e. mortgage company and real estate lawyer are nothing short of phenomenal themselves. LaMacchia reality and their team could not have made this a more pleasurable experience and we have Darlene to thank for that. If you want someone who will fight for you with class and a lovely attitude overall then Darlene is your woman! Even though we are glad we got the first home we put an offer on, we were sad we did not get to work with this lovely woman longer. She truly has such a strong passion for what she does and it shines through in her work! Thanks again Darlene! We are forever appreciative.
