It was such a pleasure working with you Karen! We could not have done this without you, and we are endlessly grateful for your hard work, your kindness, and expertise every step of the way. We appreciated all the communication throughout this process with us, hand-holding when we were freaking out, lol, and making it seamless to sell our home. If friends or our family are ever in need of an agent, we will be sure to recommend your services. Thank you again for everything!

Karen's advice was key to our recent successful purchase of our "forever home" in Westborough MA. We had been looking for a ranch house with basement and other specific requirements for months. When we found it, we did not want our offer to fail, and Karen suggested an offer that succeeded. Karen suggested a competent attorney who was able to remove unsatisfactory deed restrictions. She also recommended a mortgage broker who provided a market rate deal that was there at closing time. She was always available when we had questions or concerns and coordinated between all parties in the transaction to keep the deal on track. Karen has been involved in three family real estate transactions in the last 6 years, and all have resulted in very successful results for us, Thanks Karen and Lamacchia Realty for jobs well done!
