See what our past clients have to say about their experiences with Lamacchia Realty:
When we selected Lamacchia Realty , we knew we were in excellent hands. Joselin Zagami was in tune with our needs from the very beginning. With a toddler at home and a new baby on the way, we were looking to find a home to fit our growing family. Despite our sense of urgency to move, we refused to settle for anything less than our dream home. Given the high demand and low inventory in the market, Joselin was on top of listings that met our criteria and kept us informed of possible potentials. When we found properties we were interested in, Joselin arranged viewings prior to the open houses whenever possible. After a month of searching, we found our dream home. Because multiple offers were expected, we worked with Joselin and the Lamacchia Realty team to get advice on coming in with a strong offer but not overpaying for the home. In the end, we got our dream home for basically asking price. Joselin was there for us throughout the whole process, including the negotiations, inspection, & financing, etc.. She even held our new baby during the closing. I can’t say enough about Joselin and the Lamacchia Realty team. We had a wonderful home buying experience and were treated like family during thw whole process. I recommend Joselin Zagami and Lamacchia Realty to anyone looking to find their perfect home.
We worked with Joselin in buying our first home. My wife and I knew very little about the process, but Joselin and the entire Lamacchia Realty team was able to guide us with ease. Whenever we seemed discouraged about finding the right home for us, Joselin would meet with us to come up with a new strategy and after a bit of searching, we were able to find the perfect house for us. We would definitely recommend working with Joselin.
I have recently purchased a single family home in Needham Town, Massachusetts. When I started my search online, I found Lamacchia Realty as one of the premier real estate agencies in our area. I contacted Joselin Zagami Malkhasian and discussed with her the locations and type of property I am looking for. She is one of the young, dedicated and self-motivated exclusive Buyer’s Agents. Although she has not spent many years in the real estate market and is a young Realtor, it looks like she has worked very hard and studied the real estate market in detail to get herself labeled as an”experienced and knowledgeable Realtor. ” She has effectively utilized the new online real estate market research and forecasting tools to make herself as an expert and specialized as a Buyer’s Agent. Joselin presented me the real estate trends in the town I was interested in and told me the true facts. In fact, she performed the SWOT analysis for the different towns and helped me in targeting only 2 to 3 towns. She was patient enough to search and evaluate for us the many properties. I was interested in putting in an offer. She guided me during the bid offering process and contacted many listing agents on our behalf. Joselin has spent a lot of energy and effort in getting me one of the best deals during these times when the market is categorized as a “seller’s market,” with very low inventory of houses in good towns. I am sure Lamacchia Realty has not only employed good agents but has invested in providing their real estate agents effective tools and training to make the home buying and or selling an easy and wonderful experience.
We started our experience with a different Realtor and after a nightmare of a time, we contacted Lamacchia Realty and were put in contact with Joselin. She was extremely and attentive and helped us immensely in purchasing our first home.
My fiance and I worked with Joselin Zagami from Lamacchia Realty and I cannot express how wonderful our experience with her was. As first time home buyers, we really had no experience or knowledge of the home buying process and Joselin made everything extremely easy and exciting! From the daily MLS Property alerts to the personalized recommendations and candid feedback on home options, to finally the final price negotiations, we could not have had a better Realtor. I would recommend Lamacchia Realty any day of the week, and would strongly advise you to request Joselin Zagami, as she is truly an amazing Realtor.
We used the Lamacchia team to purchase a house on Cape Cod, sell a house in Arlington, MA and purchase a house in Woburn, MA. Every step of every process for all three transactions was managed effectively, professionally, and in a timely manner. The support received from each person we engaged with at LR was outstanding from start to finish. The team regularly provided us with valuable advice and made the overall process simple for us — resulting in three very positive experiences. We’d specifically like to commend Joselin Zagami Malkhasian for all of her valuable guidance, advice, help, and support (on virtually a 24×7 basis) during the Arlington sale and Woburn purchase. We couldn’t have asked for any better representation during the selling/buying process.
We had the pleasure of working with Joselin from Lamacchia Realty on both the buy and sell side and she was wonderful throughout both. Joselin’s knowledge of the Arlington area was extremely helpful for finding our home as well as knowing the optimal price and time to list our property. Furthermore, the relationships that Joselin has developed with lenders (Shant at GuaranteedRate is exceptional), inspectors, attorneys, etc. made both buying and selling seamless. We would recommend Joselin in a heartbeat!
Buying a house seemed like an overwhelming task but once I worked with Joselin, it became a breeze! She was always available to answer any questions, whether it was early in the morning or late at night. She was so knowledgeable on the market and made the whole processes calming and easy. She knew what to look for at the inspection and was a huge support at the closing. My husband and I are so happy with our house and if we had to do the whole process over again, I would no doubt work with Joselin! Highly recommend!
Truth be told I honestly considered getting out my thesaurus to write this review; due to the amount of times I’ve been compelled to use the words amazing and incredible! Now cards on the table I’m a type A project manager by trade who worries a lot (probably too much my husband will tell you). Working with Joselin was a dream. It’s true what everyone says, buying a home can be a stressful experience. I’m here to tell you that isn’t the case with Joselin on the job! She worked tirelessly to find us the perfect home, within budget and location. Joselin was there for us day and night for showings, to answer questions and then once our offer was accepted for all of the follow up such as the inspection, final walk though and closing. If you are looking for a Realtor stop here and give Joselin a call, and if you have a Realtor who you wouldn’t write a review like this for, ditch them and find yourself a Joselin. Happy house hunting!
Working with Joselin to buy our first home while selling our condominium was a delight. She knew the market well and worked hard to get us the best possible price on the condominium property. On the other end, the buying process was even more seamless due to Joselin’s diligence and endearing attitude. Her perseverance ensured we found and received the home of our dreams. We have worked with Joselin in the past and have never been let down by her hard work and devotion to seeing her client’s find happiness in a new home. Working with Joselin is like working with family and we couldn’t have been happier.
I’m happy to say I recently purchased a home with the help of Lamacchia Realty . I was also very fortunate to get to work with Joselin Zagami Malkhasian as my Buyers agent. I have to say, as stressful as the process can be, Joselin was always available to help me get through it every step of the way. Dedicated. Knowledgeable. And just a real pleasure to work with her. 5 stars all around! Thanks Jos!!
Being first time home buyers, Lamacchia Realty made the process as easy as possible for my wife and I. In my opinion, Lamacchia Realty was and is what you want, and should expect from a Realty Agency. From the moment we met with our realtor Joselin Malkasian, my wife and I were at ease. We were pretty clueless as to how to begin the home buying process. We asked around, searched the internet, and got tips from friends and family who have recently bought homes. But when we finally made the call, and sat down with Joselin Malkasian, all of our doubts and worries disappeared. Joselin gave us the run down on the entire process, page by page, note by note, and really focused on making us comfortable going forward. From then on, Joselin was with us every step of the way. She made time for us by making phone calls, and setting up viewings, all while balancing her other clientele and personal life. Joselin portrayed a level of professionalism and dedication that made us feel like we were the only clientele she was working with at the time. Along with Joselin, as well as numerous team members within the Lamacchia offices, we were guided by Shant Banosian and his team at Guaranteed Rate. Shant and his team made the mortgage process as simple and understandable as one could see it. Making the overall process rather easy on us. My wife and I were 100% satisfied with the level of professionalism and dedication from Lamacchia Realty. Their team and coworkers made our home buying experience enjoyable. Joselin worked so hard with us to get us to where we wanted to be. Out of this whole experience, we got the house we loved, and a new friend in Joselin. She’s awesome! We highly recommend Joselin Malkasian and the Lamacchia Realty team.
We couldn’t have been move lucky to have found Joselin right when I was ready to purchase a home. A quick Google search for top brokers in the Waltham area led me to Lamacchia’s site where I found a ton of information and super helpful reviews. The service level raved about in the reviews from other sites is what sold me and got me to reach out. It was late on Friday afternoon and I expected to hear from an agent Monday but Joselin gave me a call within an hour. We met at her office Saturday evening and she was high-energy, personable, but also showed she could be aggressive. My husband and I went to some open houses on Sunday and one on Monday and we were under contract by Tuesday! Not at all what I would have expected but we had been perusing the listings before we met Joselin and Joselin made us feel confident enough to jump into this process. Her service level remained strong from the initial contract through closing. Our offer was one of a multiple offer scenario and though ours wasn’t the highest, Joselin was able to make sure that our bid was the winning bid. If you want a personable, strong, and intelligent agent with great connections (mortgage broker, closing attorney, inspection, etc), call Joselin at Lamacchia!
Joselin was great to work with throughout the entire home buying process!! She responded to all of our emails and calls very quickly and she’s very knowledgeable about the business. Joselin really cares about her clients and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase!! Lamacchia’s use of electronic signatures is a big plus. With our schedules, I don’t think we could have signed everything in person.
I can’t express how thankful I am to have had the chance to work with Joselin and the Lamacchia team. I went into the home buying process as a clueless first-time homebuyer and as my first step, I did many hours of research online to find a real estate agent to work with. All of my research not only led me to Lamacchia, but more importantly, landed me on Joselin Malkhasian’s reviews several times. It finally got to the point where I HAD to contact her. When I reached out to Joselin, she responded quickly and welcomed my fiance and me into the office and even worked with our schedule to meet us on her day off. I recall going into the meeting not knowing what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in and sat down in the conference room. Joselin began by explaining the entire home buying process, what to expect, how everything works, and I felt like we got to know each other on a personal level, while also accomplishing the task at hand. She went on to ask us questions regarding budget, personal preference in neighborhood and location, and any must have features and amenities. At the time, we didn’t have answers to ANY of these questions and Joselin was still able to find us houses we liked. I remember leaving the meeting with a great sense of relief and had complete confidence that we would find our dream house. After the initial meeting, Joselin set us up with the Lamacchia mobile app on our phones. My fiancé and I call the app “tinder for people who aren’t single” as we would stay up late at night “right swiping” houses we liked. In addition to the app, we also received daily emails from Lamacchia outlining any new houses that had been listed on the market in our price range with our requested features. Anytime we saw a house that we liked, Joselin handled all of the scheduling for us from start to finish and worked 100% around our impossible schedule, which led to many late night house showings that many other agents just wouldn’t do. I really felt an added layer of comfort and trust after seeing a few houses. I didn’t feel like Joselin or Lamacchia were just looking for another sale. There were several occasions when Joselin said: “I will not let you buy this house, and especially not for that price” and that’s when I knew she and her team were working in our best interest. After a year of searching, we finally walked into a house and felt the “wedding dress effect” (as she would call it) and fell in love with the house immediately. From that point on, Joselin was on the paper trail for us making sure every little detail was worked out. Most impressively, she worked through her personal destination vacation to ensure we closed on time and didn’t miss anything in the fine print. The services of Lamacchia and Joselin were outstanding from start to finish. I was so surprised throughout the entire process at how professional and knowledgeable they were. They have established partners in the industry and recommended top of the line attorneys and mortgage lenders. I can’t say enough about Shant at Guaranteed Rate, he was outstanding and also worked on a personal level with Joselin and Lamacchia. I would happily, personally give anyone the recommendation to work with Joselin at Lamacchia Realty over any other real estate agent in the area. I’m very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Joselin on a professional level and also gain a friend out of it. I look forward to working with her again on our next home! Thank you Joselin!
It was a pleasure to work with Joselin Malkahasian. She is a professional agent who helped us sell and buy a house. We shared with her a lot of emotions during our search for a house. So we strongly recommend Joselin to be your real estate agent. We felt very comfortable with her. We not only have a new house but we also have a new friend. Thank you, Joselin for all that you did for us.
Joselin’s tenacity, intellect, warmth, candor, good humor and savvy are remarkable. We are so grateful she rose to the unique challenge we presented!
Imagine 5 adults looking for a property together, with each individual bringing different needs and different agendas to the table! Joselin took our collective pulse, gathered our varying input, and miraculously helped us find the perfect home. She worked tirelessly on our behalf, always willing to take phone calls or seek out new alternatives. In this competitive market, we found her to be creative, determined. and tenacious. It was not unusual for her to call with a new thoughts on how we might increase our chances of our offers being accepted or with new approaches to our search. She thought outside the box and was pro-active in guaranteeing our success.
And what was most amazing and remarkable…. she made the entire process of house-hunting fun and enjoyable! We all looked forward to our Saturday quests together and we all enjoyed spending time with Joselin each week.
Joselin is a remarkable individual whom we trust, respect, appreciate, admire and totally enjoy! Thank you, Joselin!
Being a first time home buyer, I must’ve been the luckiest person to have found Joselin Malkhasian. Her experience, her advice, her ability to build a personable relationship with her clients is uncanny. I’m sure I wouldn’t have found the right house if it wasn’t for her. She’s not just an agent to me, but a friend, who I will always use for all my real estate needs. Keep up the good work!
Michelle was always very attentive to my husband and I, especially on what we wanted and expected for a new home. Being first-time homeowners Michelle put everything at ease with her helpful knowledge and follow-up with research when asking specific questions about an area. She also asked us a lot of questions on what we expected and were looking for. And, If she didn’t have an answer immediately she would be sure to follow up and get you the information you were looking for. I would highly recommend her for expertise; overall she makes you feel very comfortable when it can be at times very stressful in the decision making processes.
Michelle helped my fiancé purchase a home and then helped us with rental properties as well, finding and qualifying tenants. I plan on using her to sell my current home in the future.
