Lisa Santilli from the Classified Realtor Group in North Reading recently sold my parents’ house in Everett. We were referred to her by a friend who was a prior customer and we are so happy we engaged Lisa to help us sell this property. The house was nearly 50 years old and had not had any major uplifting done on it in many years, however Lisa was able to maximize its market value which resulted in much interest and several offers. Lisa was invaluable with her recommendations for getting the house ready for viewing and the use of professional photography which really emphasized the house’s special qualities and attractive neighborhood. Lisa helped to make the entire process run so smoothly with her timely communications and attention to details. We would certainly hire her for any future real estate transactions and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an extremely professional and results driven realtor. — Bob Shaw
We are very glad that we found Lisa from Zillow. She is very knowledgeable, responsible and helpful. She kindly provided staging consultation, professional photography and recommendations for getting house ready for sale. Our house was offered full price within days of listing house for sale. I had to commute to work in a different state during house selling and our buyers were certainly not the nicest people, Lisa's prompt response and dedicated support really helped to make the final deal. Highly recommended. — Wei Zhang
Lisa was highly recommended to me by the elder care attorney that I was working with, and I trust the opinion of my attorney. It ended up that I couldn't have selected a more highly experienced and professional individual as Lisa proved to be. Lisa worked very hard for us and was helpful in every way possible. She navigated us through the entire process of selling the house. With her amazing knowledge of the real estate industry and her ability to solve any glitches along the way made what could have been a stressful situation seem minor. Lisa is personable, friendly, and clearly communicated all aspects of the entire selling process to us. We couldn't have been more pleased to receive an offer within a week of listing the house for sale and over the asking price. I am thankful to have worked with Lisa and would most surely recommend her to anyone. — Sandra Terranova
We had to sell our parents condo shortly after losing them both. It was an extremely difficult time for us. Lisa was amazing to work with. She communicated with us constantly, helped when we couldn't be there, answered all of our questions, and sold the property quickly. We would never have been able to do it so quickly and efficiently without her. If we had another property to sell, Lisa would be the only person we'd work with! — Anita Stewart
There are not enough stars to describe Lisa! Lisa was able to decipher all our conversations and get a clear picture of what we wanted. Just about every thing on our wish list is in our new home purchase. Negotiation skills were just awesome. Lisa was able to guide us in placing the appropriate price for the house. The process was smooth. Even after the sale and move in, Lisa continues to help us with referrals for home projects. Lisa is a real estate counselor you can trust to help you make the best decisions for you! — Ingrid Rice
Lisa helped me sell my home under some very stressful conditions. Her guidance on what to repair, what to update, and where to stop was invaluable in getting top dollar (over asking!). She was very patient with my family situation and needs, and provided great checklists to keep me on task. She also provided great recommendations and vendors for staging and cleaning so that my home looked beautiful for the open house. Lisa was also very helpful, explaining the sale process and going through each offer with me so that I could choose the best for my situation. When I'm in the market for my next home, she's my first stop. — Amy Ahern
Lisa was excellent to work with throughout our search for our perfect home. We were very particular in our search for a certain style, location and price and she was able to get us all three. Without her experience, knowledge of the area, grasp of the current market, and availability to show us properties with short notice, we wouldn't have been able to buy our dream home. Not only did she find us our new home, she was able to sell our former home in just 3 days and above asking price! She made the process for both transactions simple and stress free. If you are looking to buy and/or sell, I recommend you call Lisa. — Rick Reid
