See what our past clients have to say about their experiences with Lamacchia Realty:
Jeff Strasnick was our realtor when my husband & I decided to purchase a secondary home .
This process started in January of this year .... found a beautiful home in February . Offer made & accepted . House inspection & deposits made, etc etc. even had a closing date ... then we were hit with the Covid 19 pandemic ! Sellers decided just a few weeks before closing to back out ! Talk about a stressful situation ! But Jeff handled it all ... he became " my anchor" .... he worked around the clock to find other properties for us to see , & answered all of my frantic emails & even crazier telephone calls .... Very " happy ending" today we closed on our property that we like even better ! So kudos to Jeff, & all of his hard work ! Jeff is a 5 star Agent , Who is not only reliable & dependable, but goes the extra miles for his clients ! Thank you Jeff
Krista Matthews was amazing throughout my home buying process. She was a go-getter and was extremely accommodating to my schedule and needs. She was able to move quickly when we needed. She was so sweet and was great to work with. She also has a strong network of professionals that helped ensure the process ran smoothly and efficiently. I highly recommend working with Krista especially for first time home buyers!
I was in the market for purchasing my first home and had worked with a few realtors that I wouldn't recommend. I was getting discouraged until I was recommended to contact Karen. She helped me through the entire process and explained everything along the way (sometimes more than once). She was very patient and extremely knowledgeable about properties and home maintenance. She is a pleasure to work with and always responds quickly when you call with questions. I plan on using Karen in the future for any other property transactions. Great work!!
We hired Karen as our selling broker, having worked together briefly years ago, and because of having watched how successful she was over many years as a Broker. She was completely honest, helpful, realistic, supportive and patient and perceptive with the market. We would recommend Karen without reservation and would not hesitate to use her professionally again. She is a consummate professional!
We have worked with Karen since 2004 when we returned to MA. She was our buyer agent for a condo purchase in Leominster. She helped us sell it in 2010 and purchase a new home under construction. When we decided to downsize in 2014, our second showing in the first twenty-four hours on the market produced a full price offer. She is now assisting us in finding our next residence. Karen is a complete professional and we would never consider using any other real estate agent.
I haven't purchased property in almost 30 years, and in that time, a lot has changed. Karen Shattuck was very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. I would certainly recommend her to anyone seeking to purchase or sell their property.
Karen helped us fight for the home of our dreams!! We would absolutely recommend Karen! Karen was honest throughout the whole process and was super responsive!
Karen helped us through the difficult and time-consuming process of a short sale on our house. she certainly went the extra mile in dealing with two mortgages and had the expertise to navigate through multiple hurdles and processes. We would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy, sell or even rent. Her knowledge and commitment are superior to any other realtor that we have used in the past.
WOW! She made selling our home easy and stress free. Always available and honest. There was nothing negative about the experience at all. She kept us informed of any changes or answered any questions that came up. So smooth.
As a first-time home buyer, I was not very familiar with the home buying process. Karen was very informative, and excellent to deal with every step of the way. She was knowledgeable, professional, prompt, and respectful. She did not make me feel pressured in any way and was very supportive from start to finish. I highly recommend Karen for any real estate needs. Thank you, Karen, for everything!
This is the second time we have chosen to work with Karen to sell a home. Karen is incredibly personable, prompt and knowledgeable. Her attention to detail makes the home selling (and buying) process so smooth and calm. She also leverages all of the latest technologies, giving a seller (and buyer) the best advantages today's real estate market offers. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Karen to buy our next home!
I recommend Karen as a realtor agent any day. She has a wealth of knowledge in real estate whether she is buying or selling your home. She kept the sale of my home on track even though there were issues that could have easily delayed the closing of my house by weeks. She handled all of them like they were NO BIG DEAL. With her help, we got everything done and ready to close a week prior to the scheduled closing date. Thank you very much Karen Shattuck!!!!
Our selling experience with Karen Shattuck was outstanding from start to finish. We were anxious to get our home on the market and Karen arranged to meet with us the next day. We were extremely impressed with how prepared she was at that meeting. She had looked into the background of our property, even bringing old pictures from the last time the home was sold. This enabled her to see the improvements we had made so she could evaluate an appropriate asking price. Karen is very friendly and natural.... great to work with. She was immediately responsive to all questions, whether sent through text, email or phone call. We felt secure and confident in her abilities and it was very comforting to know we were in good hands with someone who knows her business and is completely trustworthy. Also, of note is Karen's negotiation skill. She was fearless! We'd also like to mention an incident that occurred the day we were moving out (going to another state). A large picture window got broken in our home. We called Karen and asked if she would be available to meet with the glass company to let them into the house to get an estimate and also to meet them when the repair was to be made. She was very willing to do so and we were grateful it would be handled. We HIGHLY recommend Karen Shattuck. Whether buying or selling a home, you'll feel like you're her only client!
Karen Shattuck is, hands down, the best Realtor I've ever worked with! Selling a home can be quite stressful, however, Karen made it all seem effortless. She was very reassuring and calming during the entire process. Her communication skills are outstanding. Karen is very knowledgeable, professional and very highly regarded among other professionals in the industry. We recommend Karen without any reservation and will seek her services again if we move back in the area. We just can't thank her enough!
We bought our house from Karen when we were new to the area in 2003. She was so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable that when we decided to sell in 2015, she was our first and only choice. We were not disappointed.
All I can say is that Karen is a true Ambassador to her clients. I know we all talk about how much and how well our realtors are but as an attorney, I let Karen run with the ball and OMG did she run with the ball. When I thought it was not the right price or right way to proceed, Karen was always in the right. Yes, yes, yes, yes, Karen will get 6 out of 5 stars from me and my spouse. Without Karen, I do not think we would be in the new home we are in today (the home of our dreams). If you ever thought about hiring a realtor to handle both transactions, Karen is the ONLY agent that will forever handle our real estate needs. She is a true ambassador like I said, and she knows her stuff better than any other realtor I have ever worked with. THANK YOU, KAREN. You’re the best!!!!!!!
From the moment Karen Shattuck walked into my home I knew I was dealing w/a woman of great experience in the RE world. Either that or she is just a natural. She explained everything from the get-go and followed up with information before I could even ask a question. Karen knows this business and totally invests herself w/the parties she is dealing with. I never had to wait for a reply, she was spot on thru the entire sale of home. She knows more than most brokers I know and is a dream to work with. She sold my home so fast, (my home was sold the very first week she listed it and showed it), and my home went into bidding wars, because she knows how to sell homes. She did not waste my time w/open houses either! Amazing woman who earned her 5 stars with me. I would and have already highly recommend Karen to handle your RE property. Whether you are buying or selling, she gets the job done, you are her Number one priority! Thank you, Karen!
Karen is friendly, knowledgeable, and understanding. She is available before and after normal working hours. She's a great agent for questions and quick services. Thanks, Karen!
Very helpful and personable with all of our issues and questions. The only possible critique is that she tried to do too much. She made this a very positive experience and I would highly recommend her to any friends.
I would highly recommend Karen Shattuck as a buying or listing agent. She is extremely knowledgeable and consistently available for questions or concerns throughout the process. Her years of experience were evident throughout the transaction. Sometimes buying or selling a home can be stressful. I have to say with Karen as our agent, it was the easiest most seamless transaction. She was able to ease any fears that we were feeling. We will certainly use Karen again as our agent if we ever decide to buy or sell a piece of property in the future.
