See what our past clients have to say about their experiences with Lamacchia Realty:
Genevieve was an excellent realtor who helped us every step of the way in buying our first home. We came into the process with no knowledge of what to do. Genevieve was able to answer and explain every question we had and helped us understand what was going on every step of the way. She made this process easy and stress-free for us from the beginning. I would highly recommend using her and Lamacchia Realty!!
I am a single retiree. I had such a great experience when I sold a second home last summer. The realtor, Gen, was so helpful and quick to respond to all my questions. She even went to so far to ask her brother to help me on the hottest day of the summer to help me do some painting to get the house ready for the new buyer. Six months later when my Mom needed to sell her house, I took over for her and called my favorite realtor. Again, Gen came through for my Mom and me. There were a few issues, including solar panels which no one seemed to understand. Gen stepped up to the plate and educated herself all about the contract with the solar company and made everything clear to potential buyers – and ME!! She was always calm and professional and very patient!
We were first time home buyers with lot of questions!! We worked with Genevieve Botelho from Lamacchia realty. She was patient enough to answer all our questions and take us through every step of the buying process. She took us to see the houses even on the weekends. She always worked hard for the buyers rather than supporting the sellers. They do have their own home inspectors but they never pushed us to use them. She helped us in closing the deal in less than 30 days from the time we signed the P&S!! Her way of dealing with the sellers to negotiate the price was commendable. After the appraisal, she was able to tackle the sellers to further come down on the price. All in all, we recommend Lamacchia Realty and are highly satisfied with our new home.
Genevieve was so helpful with our home search process. She was very attentive and dedicated to our search! She was always there for us. We would highly recommend her!
Genevieve Botelho came highly recommended to us by Anthony Lamacchia when we told him we were doing our home loan with the VA. And she did great in helping us. We told her that our goal is to close and live in a house we chose by June 25. We started looking for a house the third week of April and we closed and signed by June 22. Genevieve told us what to expect when we did our loan. When we decided which house we wanted, documents came flying. What’s best? We all did it electronically which worked out very well since my husband and kids were 5.5 hours away. She was there when we did our second viewing and when we did our home inspection. She bridged the communication between the sellers and us and looked out for our interests. She was very prompt in letting us know if there were matters that needed our decisions. She was there to clarify matters that were not so clear and quite confusing. She gave recommendations and gave us names of professionals who could help us. In short, Genevieve was a good addition to our team. April 20-June 22, imagine? That’s a great team work! Thanks, Genevieve! Thank you, Anthony.
Our experience working with Sacha Anastasio from Lamacchia Realty was terrific. She was exceptionally responsive throughout our home buying process. Sacha provided a wealth of knowledge and guidance while handling some very stressful situations. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Sacha was very helpful and always available to look at homes on my schedule. She was informative and got me thru the entire process. The house I ended up buying we must have looked at it 4-5 times and she didn’t mind at all. Very accommodating.
Going with Lamacchia Realty was the best decision I made in planning to sell my property. The way their whole team works in tandem like a well-oiled machine, makes things look so easy. The agents have their finger on the pulse of the market and are very knowledgeable about local conditions. Jackie was my day to day contact and it was an absolute pleasure to work with her as she understood my requirements and was super responsive to my queries. Any time I think of buying or selling the next property, Lamacchia Realty will be the first phone call I make.
I would have to say that from our experience we have seen that it is Jackie that does all the work! We reaped the benefits of your knowledge, energy, and efforts. We appreciate all you did in securing and coddling us along this difficult path. We have achieved success in many ways and in a short period of time! Even getting an extra surprise at the end!
Thanks, Jackie! I hope you got something significant besides a handshake.
All our best to you!
We couldn’t be happier with our decision to sell and even happier with the decision to go with Realtors Lamacchia!! Your professionalism was top notch and the correspondence between each person we dealt with was honest and straight forward. We received an offer within 2 days of listing it. We are not only impressed with Lamacchia, we are forever grateful for helping us simplify our lives. A huge “THANK YOU” to everyone in the Lamacchia family and Dorner Law for all your support. You truly live up to your reputation and earn the right to be #1 Realtors in New England.
We are truly grateful to you Jackie and the entire team of Lamachhia & Dorner Law – for all of your work, emails, calls and most importantly your results! Since day 1 we knew that we picked the right people to help guide us and sell our condo. Thank You!!
Hi Jackie thank you all so much for helping us through a very difficult time. Ever since the day we met, we had a good feeling about putting our future really in all of your hands. You have a great staff and you made us feel able to do this with your help. Especially you Jackie, you were a pleasure to work with and you kept shooting back with those emails and attachments that sometimes seemed endless but I knew you were on the other end and we just had to keep going. Thanks again to all of you, too many to mention, we will be in touch. We wish the new couple the best also, they too were a pleasure to work with. I know they will be happy there, we never would have chosen to leave but sometimes our lives take us in different directions. Thank you all again, take care.
A few weeks ago I had the amazing experience of closing on my condo.
After a long and drawn out divorce, I had been working hard for a few years to maintain ownership of a condo that I had originally purchased with my husband at the time. The years following my divorce and trying to maintain the condo on one income alone were difficult at best. It wasn’t until I went in for my first meeting at Lamacchia that I finally started to feel like my luck might be changing. Throughout the entire process, everyone at Lamacchia was helpful, understanding, patient, and encouraging. I just can’t believe how fast and easy the entire process was – it still almost doesn’t seem real! Jackie, the Realtor that I worked with, truly went above and beyond the call of duty. She answered my questions immediately and was always willing to explain steps in the process in detail to be sure that I understood everything that was going on. I truly felt as though I was in very good hands throughout the whole process. Now I can finally move on with the next phase of my life with a clear head and look forward to my financial future as one that I have complete control over. I couldn’t have done any of this without help from the amazing people at Lamacchia!
Thanks again, Jackie – you’re the best! Have a great fall and I wish you guys a ton of success in the future!
To whom it may concern,
I’m am very pleased with the performance of Lamacchia Realty regarding the selling of my Massachusetts home. In a very tough market, Lamacchia Realty personnel worked closely with me and helped me to make the right decisions to successfully sell my property. This was accomplished mostly from a distance since I had to relocate from Massachusetts to California this past winter. First, John McGeough met with me personally at my home to discuss its value and our go-to-market strategy. From there, his sales team and associated legal advisors made things happen and kept in communication before, during and after my relocation. I’d like to give a special shout out to Jackie Louh who served as my primary contact throughout the transaction and did much of the heavy lifting to sell the property. I would highly recommend the services of Lamacchia Realty.
We were referred to Jackie Louh at Lamacchia Realty by our nephew whose experience selling his home was outstanding and are we glad we listened to him. Jackie was the ultimate professional and guided us every step of the way. Her responses were always prompt and informational. A stressful time for us, Jackie made it easy and smooth. We will gladly recommend Lamacchia and Jackie as much as we can.
Dear friends, The old proverb says that every cloud has a silver lining. My silver lining was the dedicated team of Lamaccchia Realty and Dorner Law. Individually and cumulatively you all pitched in to make an absolutely awful situation manageable. My wife and I and my 16 month old are indebted to your help and resourcefulness…and we can’t thank you enough!!!
Jackie exhibited expert real estate sales counsel during the entire duration of each of the transactions. Through the ups and downs of the emotional roller coaster of a transaction of this magnitude, she steered us through the pitfalls and kept focused throughout, i.e. eyes on the prize: “a sale”. She was always a phone call or email away and responded promptly to my calls and emails.
Anthony Lamacchia- provided relief to a terrible setback of epic proportions. At one point, we had a willing and able buyer fully signed/executed contract along with the bank's approval but met resistance from the investors FannieMae…therefore no deal. Anthony pressed on with others and used every legal resource and maneuvering until he was able to sway them to do the right thing and get too close.
Adam Pasciscia- captured the property in its best light to help entice buyers. His expert photography of the property highlighted its strong points and minimized its weaknesses visually, a feat in and of itself. It’s worth saying he kept his composure while encountering difficult tenants. He stood firm with his pricing assumptions and had empirical data to support his findings.
Angela Walker- provided superior management of the listing and the closing. Any unexpected wrinkles were quickly ironed out. All deadlines were met on time and there were no hiccups at the closing.
DORNER LAW TEAM Hillery Dorner- exhibited her well-honed real estate skills throughout the entire transaction. She offered high-level counsel on very intricate situations specific to my unique needs. Her own personal involvement in real estate investments was priceless and made it extremely easy for us to connect. Her relevant background was instrumental and significantly helped us get too close smoothly and efficiently.
Dave Karoly- Negotiated the most favorable terms possible, exceeding my expectations by far. His superior financial background spoke volumes to my situation. He is a personable professional eager to help. His calm demeanor and wit helped immensely throughout the transaction, especially at the most trying times. He regularly went to bat for his client and negotiated a strong victorious outcome.
Carolyn Benoit- helped immensely with all the intricacies of the purchase and sale agreements. She facilitated smooth communication back and forth with the buyer’s attorney and always kept me in the know. She was instrumental in helping explain the spouses “right of homestead” and helped me work it out for what was best for my situation.
As with the Yin and Yang being complementary, not opposing, forces (as gleaned from Wikipedia); “Interacting to form a whole greater than either separate part; in effect, a dynamic system” I can’t help but see the same symbolism between Lamacchia Realty and Dorner Law. One of Robert Frost’s earliest poems ‘The Road Not Taken’ (line 20) reads ‘And that has made all the difference’, you have all in your own unique way individually and collectively MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Again, I thank you all and wish you all the best of luck in life.
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
A note of sincere thanks and appreciation for Lamacchia Realty, Inc. and for the very dear professionals who were involved in the process of the sale of my condo: Thank you dear, wonderful Jackie; thank you, the patient and kind Dave Karoly (whose calm responses reassured me that it will be alright), and thank you, the amazingly competent, sincere, and friendly Hillery Dorner for the final steps, and THANK YOU to each and everyone working at this connection whose names regretfully I have missed to note during this chaotic situation of my life…THANK YOU ALL!!! With a heart full of recognition and appreciation for the help and the honest approach I experienced during the sad situation of the sale of my condominium, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Lamacchia Realty, Inc! It was the professional, sincere, capable, honest, and wise approach by the professionals at Lamacchia Realty, Inc, and specifically the continuous support and assistance by Jackie on day to day basis, the legal explanations by Dave Karoly, and at the end through the smooth (and as painless as possible) approach by lawyer Hillery Dorner (whose help and support I would never forget) that made a difference in how I would survive this period. I will always be thankful to them. From the beginning to the end I felt having sincere friends who knew exactly what to do to make the sale process successful and as little as possible painful to me. Once again thank you all, Best regards
During my initial meeting at their Waltham office with Dave Karoly, my concerns were eased as Dave thoroughly explained the process. Their confidence, experience, and highly successful track record gave me renewed confidence. What really sets Lamacchia Realty apart from others (and can’t be underestimated) are their strong connections and contacts with the major lenders. I especially want to thank Dave Karoly. I also want to thank Hillery Dorner, Angela Walker and Kristen McCarthy, for their hard work and timely communications. Working with LR exceeded my expectations. They are a valuable resource for anyone considering the sale of their property.
