Here’s what real clients have to say about the experiences they had working with our company:
I sure do!
-We had known Anthony previously because he actually was Natalie’s Realtor when they bought this house a couple of years ago and then he also helped our sister Emily on her condo on a short sale a couple of years ago so naturally with our successful experiences using McGeough and Lamacchia we decided to use him to sell our 3 family home in Watertown that all of our siblings owned together. So it was a very quick easy and painless process they put our house on the market on a Friday afternoon. They had several showings over the weekend. We received offers and by Monday afternoon we chose an offer and moved forward and shortly after that the closing took place and we had yet another successful experience with McGeough and Lamacchia.
-And we recommend them to anyone buying a home, selling their home, or needing a short sale any real estate transaction we would definitely recommend them.
-Yeah him and his team are unbelievable and that just shows why they’re so successful and the top Realtor in Massachusetts.
There’s a lot of communication which was good–
We felt our experience was great, in five days we had so many showings, between three to five showings a day that we really just even needed a break from showings! And we had five offers in five days and I would highly recommend McGeough Lamacchia to anyone that’s searching for a Realtor they did a great job for us.
Absolutely thorough job.
Here’s what others are saying:
I had a second very good experience with the successful sale of my home with McGeough Lamacchia Realty, the first one being 5 years ago after a disastrous experience with another Realtor, and now with this home that seemed to maybe be even more difficult to sell. As usual, John’s advice on pricing and other details was right-on, and I learned that it pays to heed it! (Today I was helping at a friend’s yard sale and saw your M & L Realty sign on a neighbor’s property. I thought, “Way to go, people! You will sell it soon! ‘Start Packing’!!
All the best,Becky G., Worcester, Massachusetts
I’d like to thank you and McGeough Lamacchia Realty for an excellent experience in selling my property. You did a great job of coordinating the various individuals who were involved in the negotiating process. Everyone that I dealt with at your office and at the Law firm that you work with was the epitome of a professional. Would that every business that I deal with had such good customer service and business efficiencies! Thank you again.Barbara S., Woburn, Massachusetts
We listed with another agency first and after over 20 showings and thirty days we still did not have an offer. When we hired McGeough Lamacchia we were given great advice and were under agreement within two weeks and sold our house two months later! Thank you for the great service and helping us sell our house!!Bill and Kristin L., Clinton, Massachusetts
I would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to everyone from McGeough Lamacchia Realty and the Dorner Law Offices, everyone on the team worked with me through every step of the process of selling my house. I really can’t say enough about their support, experience and professionalism. Krissy Axon is the BEST! She answered ALL my questions and returned all my calls timely. My experience in selling my house with McGeough Lamacchia Realty has been stressless and easy. I will recommend McGeough Lamacchia Realty to anyone I know selling a property.Betty M., Weymouth, Massachusetts
I enlisted McGeough Lamacchia Realty to sell my second home in New Hampshire which I had been trying to sell for a long time with no results. This past September my house was sold with great relief to me. My experience with McGeough Lamacchia Realty has been nothing but professional and exceptional. I appreciate how you sold my property in a timely manner. Everyone who I had contact with were very supportive and gave positive encouragement to me. Thank you for the professional way you handled the sale and how you openly communicated with me in all matters pertaining to the sale process. Thank you for being informative with updates to this matter. A special thanks to Katie Imperato who was very understanding and supportive to me. She made this difficult process much easier to deal with. Thank you.Theresa F., Conway, New Hampshire
Good Morning Jackie,
First and foremost, I apologize that I haven’t given you my testimonial yet. It’s been crazy here at work, with the supervisor for one of the departments I work for giving her notice of leaving and I get to do all her work now… AHHH. I would like to thank you and McGeough Lamacchia for the basket that you guys sent….
Here we go with my testimonial: I had seen the commercial for McGeough Lamacchia and wondered if they could sell my house. I was talking to a coworker about the whole commercial and she had told me that she knew Anthony. Immediately I called and met with you guys… My situation was a little hard because I was divorced and could not have any face to face contact with my ex-husband because he was not very helpful and out of control. I came into the office and immediately felt welcomed and knew that I was putting my property in good hands. House was on the market I believe 4 days and it was picked up… This was such and amazing feeling and with the help of you Jackie, it was sold! Of course there a couple of issues but you guys got me through it… I am so grateful that you all helped get me free of that property. I certainly will refer anyone and everyone to your real estate company. Maybe even have them all ask for Jackie Shelvey, you are awesome at what you do! If it wasn’t for you helping me through the whole process I don’t know if I could have done it dealing with the other property owner…. Thank you so much for everything that you did for me… I appreciate it all! Hey who knows maybe we will do business again haha… If I buy any more property
Happy Spring!Jenn R., Medford, Massachusetts
I would recommend McGeough Lamacchia to anyone I know who is looking to sell their home. Upon my first contact with them, they put me at ease immediately. Everyone involved in the process was very proactive and guided me through each step of the process with professionalism, honesty and reliability.Cathy D., Lawrence, Massachusetts
Thank-you for checking in to say hello. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season as I can tell you that mine was all the more special after working with you on the sale of my house. McGeough Lamacchia was just as advertised! The best in the business with the most qualified, resourceful and helpful staff as yourself. It really was a pleasure working with you Kim. My best wishes for you in 2013.
Truly,Aaron R., Oxford, Massachusetts
Moving can be a very stressful time for most people, the team at McGeough Lamacchia Realty worked with us every step of the way. Our Listing Agent Jackie Shelvey kept us well informed and communicated with us on a daily basis; she looked out for our best interest, and helped us achieve the asking price of our house. With the sale of our home we were able to purchase our dream Town House in New Jersey.J.C., Dorchester, Massachusetts
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all the time, effort, patience and hard work you put in. Thank you for helping us find the house that was right for our family. You manage to always stay available to answer all our questions and concerns, even when you were dealing with personal matters and family. I can’t express enough how professional, knowledgeable, honest and charismatic you are. You were always so pleasant and genuinely interested in getting us a home that would be the perfect one for our large little family, not just selling us a house. I am so thrilled to inform you that although we’re not fully unpacked we couldn’t be any happier. We love the house, the neighborhood and the fact that our children have plenty of room to grow up in and horse around, too. I want to also extend our thanks to the McGeough and Lamacchia team for such a wonderful service and making sure the process went as smoothly as possible. You and your company have exceeded our expectations time and time again. I DO NOT hesitate to recommend your business to anyone who inquires about selling or buying a house.
My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Sincerely,Oscar & Yessenia G. , Avon, Massachusetts
Everyone at McGeough Lamacchia was extremely helpful! Great advice on what we needed to do to prep our home to put in on the market, timely feedback on all showings, and all of our questions were quickly answered! Easy to talk to! Great support from the whole team!
Thanks again!Joan and Greg H., Scituate, Massachusetts
Thank you so much Angela! We truly appreciate all you, Krissy and all the people at McGeough Lamacchia and Dorner Law have done for us. I will recommend MLrealty to anyone I know selling or buying a property. I also want to let you know how helpful Krissy was during this process. Krissy was right there anytime I had a question or concern. Thank you again!!Sean O., Brockton, Massachusetts
Hi Jackie -
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you – busy busy!
Thank you for making the sale of my home so easy. Every step of the way was handled in a professional manner and with full respect of my time and home. I would recommend McGeough Lamacchia Realty hands down over anyone I’ve ever done business with. It was the easiest and most professional management of selling my home I could have asked for.
Thanks again, Jackie!
Best,Debbie M., Waltham, Massachusetts
To the McGeough and Lamacchia staff,
Thank you, thank you for making the sale of our condo so easy! I can’t say enough about how quick and smoothly everything went. Mike M. really put our minds at ease when explaining the process and June S. was exceptional with keeping us informed every step of the way! The staff is so personable and professional it’s no wonder your business is so successful. I would 100% recommend McGeough & Lamacchia Realty to anyone in need of a great realtor and wish you guys the best of luck in the future!!Jessica and Erik, Quincy, Massachusetts
My family and I would like to thank you for all the hard work that you and team did to get our house sold! Anthony you helped me from day one! Honestly if it wasn’t for you I am sure the house would be still siting there with a whole house full of junk. Thank you for motivating my family to clear out the house! Every obstacle that we bumped into you guys fought for us. From going down to the town hall first thing in the morning when they said our house was a two family through fighting for us when the appraisal came in a lot lower. We appreciate everything that you and your team did to get our house sold from the beginning through the end!
I am still shocked at how well it turned out:) you guys are the best!!
Thank you!!Natalie & Family, Massachusetts
We were extremely pleased by the experience we had with McGeough Lamacchia and would welcome anyone on an inquiry by a potential client. Please feel free to contact us at any time in the future. I see your television spots frequently and am very glad we chose your very professional organization. At the start you laid out a plan, and it was followed….how could anyone ask for more?Dan K., Sandown, New Hampshire
Very pleased with the way MLRealty handled our listing. Their teamwork efforts and pool of resources made communications easy and effective. Showings were scheduled appropriately and when the offer was made they worked with us to make the deal happen. They even recommended an attorney who was a pleasure to work with. We did not even have to be present at the closing! Great agency.George C., Cambridge, Massachusetts
John, I’d like to express my sincere thanks to you and your entire sales and administrative staff for the completion of the recent sale of my condo in South Boston. The responsiveness, thoroughness and professionalism exhibited throughout the entire process gives indication as to why your company has been so successful. As you know, when the time comes for my home sale, I will be contacting you again.
My best to you and your staff,John G., South Boston, Massachusetts
I’m am very pleased with the performance of McGeough Lamacchia Realty regarding the selling of my Massachusetts home. In a very tough market, McGeough Lamacchia 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 Shelvey 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 McGeough Lamacchia Realty.Robin S., Northborough, Massachusetts
My wife and I recently used McGeough Lamacchia to purchase our first home. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Our agent Danielle really took the time to understand our needs and wants and only showed us properties that fit our criteria. Using McGeough Lamacchia really took the pain and uncertainty out of the buying our first home by guiding us through the entire process from mortgage pre-qualification through property closing to providing moving supplies! All in all it was a very positive experience and I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to friends and family.Ryan V., Ashland Massachusetts
It was nothing short of a pleasure working with your company. Your experienced and professional agents Danielle Bovill and Jackie Shelvey were attentive and diligent in helping us with all of our real estate needs. They reiterated that our needs came first and they really made us feel that they were working alongside us to have all these needs met. It was such a pleasurable experience for us working with your company and we make a point of letting all of our family and friends know that McGeough Lamacchia Realty is the only realty group that will make it a point to have all of your real estate dreams come true.
Thanks again,Dan and Allison S., Brockton, Massachusetts
My wife and I just purchased our first home recently, with the help of Anthony Lamacchia and his professional team. It was important to my wife and I that we stay in the same town we previously rented in. We have two girls that were already in the school system and would have hated to take them out. My wife just got out of nursing school and I am a blue collar guy myself. Before talking with Anthony my original thought of buying a 3 bedroom, single family home in Watertown didn’t seem like it would happen or fit our budget. As we looked on line under there very helpful web site we came across house after house. I was beginning to think our dream would not happen. One day the phone rings, it was Anthony and he says ” there’s a house that just came on the market, and I think you guys should look at it”. Anthony set up a showing for us, and BOOM we loved it!!! It was in our budget and a great fit for me and my family. I guess what I am trying to say is if you have a dream like we did, you would be foolish not to choose McGeough Lamacchia realty to assist you on purchasing your home. My family and I would like to thank you guys for your help, professionalism, and making our dream come true!!Dan and Val, Watertown, Massachusetts
I could not be happier with the job McGeough Lamacchia Realty and Dorner Law did. My house had been on the market for almost a year when my realtor suggested I change to McGeough Lamacchia Realty. He said it was what he would do if it was his house. I trusted his judgment and do not regret it. In less then 90 days, I had an offer. McGeough Lamacchia Realty addressed all of my worries and the communication was great. I never had a question that wasn’t addressed promptly. This was a big worry of mine and they handled everything wonderfully.
Dorner Law was great. They handled all legal questions I had and I never had to wait wondering what was going on like you have to with some law offices. Both McGeough Lamacchia Realty and Dorner Law work great together and really got the job done. Now I don’t have to worry anymore.
Thank you to both teams for doing such a good job,Trisha E., Fitchburg, Massachusetts
Happy to provide this testimonial: Going with McGeough Lamacchia 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, McGeuogh Lamacchia will be the first phone call I make.- Vikas C., Revere, Massachusetts
We had a very positive experience and successful outcome with McGeough Lamachia Realty,Inc.- Ryan and Sara D., Boston, Massachusetts
We would like to thank McGeough Lamacchia Reality and their wonderful staff for helping us sell our home. Due to unforseen circumstances, we had deceided to do a Short Sale of our home. A family member was
losing her eyesight, I needed to drop everything and move to California to help her. I would like to thank Katie and Natalie for all the leg work they did for us. It made the transition very easy. Thanks again to the entire staff of McGeough Lamacchia Reality.- Barbara and Jim C., Spencer, Massachusetts
Anthony and Angela, my wife and I wanted to take the time to let you know how fortunate we feel to have employed your services recently. In addition to being honest, and diligent, you were very supportive to us in a very trying time.From the first visit from your outside sales agent until the day of closing, your company shined with respect to providing information and following up with us regularly, even though, like every short sale, it moved at a very slow pace. It was important to us to not lose our home to foreclosure, for pride and other obvious reasons, and you were responsible for making that happen, by steering us skillfully through the short sale process, of which we were novices.Your ability to work with a large institution like Bank of America, and the smaller insurance agencies and ancillary companies that are all tied in to the process, was pretty impressive. We would recommend you to anyone considering selling their home, short sale or otherwise.Your patience with us, and all of the institutions involved, is to be commended. Please feel free to use this letter in any marketing literature.- Joseph and Patricia G., Goffstown, New Hampshire
Thank you for everything. I want to tell you how pleased we are with all the service you did for us. Thank you for the committment and being our guide when things were tough, after having the pipes break and all – you guys stuck through. Kudos to the team! Your company is very dynamic and organized – a well oiled machine! I am pleased that each team handles a specialty an assurance that someone is handling that specific matter. The outcome is facilitated and reported. I hope you can employ more people and have a team assigned to check on the vacated houses during the winter. Thank you again. We wish you more success in your business. Rest assured, we will recommend you to friends who might need you service.- Rubie V. Holden, Massachusetts
Despite the market being overloaded with homes for sale, McGeough Lamacchia Realty was able to sell my home in only just a few short months. I was most impressed with their caring and concern during the listing process. They did a remarkable job of keeping me informed during each development. I was very stressed at the time due to my financial situation and on-going pregnancy, however, McGeough Lamacchia Realty made the experience 100% stress free and as well as a positive one. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wanted to sell or buy a home.”- Sarah B., Worcester, Massachusetts
I am writing to you today to express my gratitude to McGeough Lamacchia Realty, Inc. In September 2011, my husband and I made the hard decision to put our home on the market as a short sale. My husband did some research and found out that McGeough Lamacchia specializes in short sales. Confused and heartbroken to have to proceed and take a loss on our house, we called to make an appointment for someone to come to us and explain the procedure. This was the moment we knew had chosen the right company to take us on this journey.
The first visit was a pleasant experience filled with helpful information. The representative talked to us like we had been friends for years, still maintaining professionalism along the way. All of the facts were laid out regarding how a short sale worked. We were told up front how long the process was, what we could expect each step of the way and we felt confident that we had chosen the right people for the job. Before this visit, I had a different impression of what a short sale was, I felt like we had failed and it was something to be shameful of. After the visit, my feelings were much different. I realized that we had options, that we were not alone and that so many have taken this same path before us with successful results.
There was a team assigned to our short sale and each step of the way we encountered people who were dedicated to making this process as easy as possible. Every person had a certain job to take care of and they kept us informed with every move they made. We had every opportunity to ask questions or get reassurance that things were moving along. As soon as our condominium went on the market, the showings started. I had always remembered showings to be inconvenient to schedule and keep track of but with their new system it was all done by a phone call and confirmation in an email. So simple!
We listed our condo on September 21, 2010 and the first showing was September 23, 2010. After many showings, we received an offer on October 15, 2010. McGeough Lamacchia negotiated with the buyer, lender & us. With our best interest at heart, we all agreed upon a higher offer.
We were given a closing date to look forward to and assured that we would be kept informed of every step that would get us to that date with no problems. McGeough Lamacchia went above and beyond to make us feel like this was a process they could handle and that our worries should be none. We were given a lawyer who was assigned to our sale and who would take care of us through the closing. Everyone did as they promised.
Our closing date came without delay and our condominium was sold. We have in the past few months and will in months to come, refer people to use this company for any sale of their home, especially short sales. We were entirely satisfied from beginning to end with McGeough Lamacchia’s services. Approximately one month after our closing we received a very generous gift basket filled with chocolates and cheese, cutting board and delicious crackers from McGeough Lamacchia along with a thank you card. This was not necessary in addition to the great service they provided but will always leave a lasting impression. Thank you McGeough Lamacchia!
Happy Customers,- Vicki and Kenneth D., Andover, Massachusetts
Dear Mr. Anthony Lamacchia and Mr. John McGeough,
I was no longer staying afloat in my home, but sinking and out of options financially. I decided the bank would eventually accept back the keys to my American Dream. That is until my neighbor mentioned she was using McGeough-Lamacchia and thinking back, something in her smile expressed confidence. The next time we talked she had an offer. And finally, she had a closing date.
I chose McGeough-Lamacchia for the demonstrated results I witnessed – they COULD sell a unit like mine, in a condo association like mine, and in such uncertain times, even when I had thought it impossible. I told them I had not spoken to another realtor; they welcomed me to do so, but the decision was already made based on the moving van at my neighbor’s unit.
From the initial walk-through, I sensed that Mike McGrory was confident my unit would show well and it was just a matter of time. He explained the whole process. We set a realistic timeline and price; the process began. It got a good number of hits (and appointments) during the Great Recession.
There were no surprises when I started working with my primary contact Natalie Scott – the only one pulling surprises was unfortunately me. My particular case had not one, but several hurdles presented to the team of Natalie and Angela Walker. I had the confidence (that same confidence from my now-gone neighbor) to step back and let the teams do what they do, and ultimately their own broker was able to match my property to her buyer’s needs.
Your business plan (the association with “my other team” at DORNER Law & Title) is really perfect – not just in good logistics, but the folks there meet the same standard of professionalism. It confirmed across the board that my desperate situation was in expert hands.
I met Hilary Dorner and my case was handled by Dave Karoly – who often had to also handle my nerves. At every point, he wanted to be sure I was clear on the meaning behind documents. He helped coach me through negotiations and championed my case. Sometimes it was a team effort (with Alex M and Taylor C), but my calls and emails were all answered quickly. Everything was as my neighbor claimed, and as McGeough-Lamacchia promised.
Thank you for putting a mechanism in place to help ‘the little guy’ out there to have an option other than foreclosure. The “blue ribbon” is for the efficiency and professionalism of how you deliver with best-in-class service. You assembled a great team!- Ken M., Easton, Massachusetts
I cannot say enough about my experience. It worked out exactly how they told me it would – there were never any “surprises” – they were up front right from the beginning about the process and about how long it could take, etc. Every person I dealt with was awesome – very friendly and professional – they always got right back to me whenever I had a question. I am so happy I went with McGeough and Lamacchia – I will certainly recommend them to anyone who gets themselves into a situation like me – Thank you for everything.- Robin K., Brockton, Massachusetts
Hi Katie, I received your gift package several days ago. I want to thank you and your company very much.
You took a lot of pressure off me, especially when the title 5 came into the picture. I thought I was going to have to start over. I also wanted to thank you for letting me use your lawyer. I asked John to give me a break and I guess he did. It was a pleasure dealing with you personally. I will gladly recommend your company if someone asks about a real estate company. Again, thanks for everything.- Frank W., Dracut, Massachusetts
Thank you, McGeough Lamacchia Realty, for selling our home. It was a difficult decision for us, but we know it was the right one and you helped us move on with our lives and that is what we needed to do. The short sale went more smoothly than we anticipated. Although we miss our home this is what we needed to happen. Thanks again- Eric H., Nashua, New Hampshire
I have dealt with many real estate brokers over the last 35 years. McGeough Lamacchia Realty stands head and shoulders above any other. Their approach is unique and their customer service has no peer. The next time I have residential property to sell in this area they will be the broker that I call.- Rick B., Haverhill, Massachusetts
Pretty much just like the TV ad though it took slightly longer due to the bank and buying process but the team is really good professional and straight forward and much less headache/hassle than with previous realtors. Basically the team aproach your office has with each person specializing in their aspect of realestate and being good at it instead of one realtor making their way thru transactions they’ve only dealt with here n there made a difference. I dont want to say the friendliness was dispensed with, because you guys you in particular were very friendly and professional, but somehow the unnecessarily overly friendly aspect that comes with most even well meaning realtors or other ‘salesmen’ was just not there; no pretense of what was going on. This was purely and efficiently business and that was nice.
I had an oppurtunity to have sold this 2 years ago for a bunch less loss but i was a lot dumber back then and even at her own friendly loss my realtor respected my right to make a boneheaded (priced out of market mistake, not accepting a 120k offer) and well it was my fault and I live with it but I didn’t understand the simple principle of how the game works aka the market price. McGeough Lamacchia Realty Inc.has this down and its a corner stone of their success.
Truly Thank you very much to you as the primary person Ive worked with as well as John, Katie, and Hillery and Julie at Dorner Law.
It takes people who know what they’re doing to make things happen.
Success is yours ! I hope you have a good day and a great Summer!- Lee M., Boston, Massachusetts
Thank you for your time and large effort on this sale. I have recommended your agency to many others that could be in similar situations and I hope that they do come to you.- Derek A., Middleboro, Massachusetts
John and Anthony are both smart individuals who bring a strong knowledge of the real estate market to the table. This knowledge is invaluable when trying to understand the trends and decide the listing price of your property. In addition to this knowledge, John and Anthony bring a personal element to the relationship that makes you comfortable working with them and confident that they do not just see you as their next commission but genuinely care about putting together the right sale for you.- Amy P. and Jason A., Watertown, Massachusetts
I want to thank you for all your support and encouragement during the last few months while our house was for sale. You kept us more informed and while you had the house, more people saw it in one week than in the whole six months the other company had it. You are the greatest.- Annette F., Scituate, Massachusetts
Anthony and John were able to sell my home in 16 days! The service and knowledge they utilized while working with them was excellent. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to sell to do business with them.- Kathy G., Billerica, Massachusetts
The sale of my house wouldn’t be complete without sending a big “THANK YOU” to you for handling all the details and various communications over the past 2 months! I am VERY HAPPY with the entire M-L team, and I am glad the condo is sold, especially since we are now living in Florida! I wish you the best and continued success.- Chris J., Walpole, Massachusetts
My experience with McGeough Lamacchia Realty was wonderful. They were upfront and honest about the process. They handled everything from start to finish and there were no surprises. My parents were able to sell their condo for more than the asking price in these tough economic times. I would definitely recommend McGeough Lamacchia Realty.- Steven C., Methuen, Massachusetts
When I decided to sell my home, I was very apprehensive because I was living out of state at the time and needed someone I could trust to handle everything for me in my absence. I had tried selling my home 2 years prior with a different agent and was not happy with the results. I ended up reluctantly taking it off the market because I could not sell it for the price I wanted. This time I was fortunate to have been referred to Anthony Lamacchia by a friend, and after speaking to him on the phone I was very comfortable putting my home sale in his hands. From the moment he took the listing, Anthony and his team handled everything professionally and exceeded my expectations. I had some serious obstacles to making a sale, including tough market conditions, uncooperative tenants, and the fact that my house needed a lot of work. Anthony made some great suggestions on low-cost improvements that made the house show better, and then coordinated getting the work done. He worked directly with my tenants to make sure the house was ready for showings, and also was instrumental in helping me to decide on an appropriate list price. In the end, he made the sale in the price range I was hoping for. I have nothing but the deepest admiration and appreciation for the wonderful job Anthony Lamacchia and his team did for me in selling my home for me while I was living across the country.- Dave R., Watertown, Massachusetts
Thank God I hired you guys! You got the job done. I’ll tell everyone I know, I had the best team to sell my house. Thanks!- Deb C., Norfolk, Massachusetts
The thought of putting your house up for sale can make your head spin when you think about all that’s involved with selling. Uncertain of the housing market and what’s truly involved in selling our home were some things that we began to wonder about. It seemed like a daunting task. What do we have to do to get the house ready to show? How do I find the right people to work on issues that need to be fixed before showing the house? What do I do with all of this “stuff” I no longer want or need? And the all-important question; what is my house worth?
Enter John and Anthony; honest, direct and very talented. It was as easy as calling them and asking them for an interview. They came to the house, walked through it with us and made suggestions about what we could do to highlight the best features of the house, as well as things that needed to be addressed; like painting the fence. Not only were they able to point out issues, they were prepared with a list of contractors to address any size job. The people that they recommended were fantastic; professional, courteous, on time and on budget. It became clear very early on that these guys know what they’re doing and associate themselves with top quality contractors. We took their advice, made the improvements and then got out of their way to let them do their job – sell our house!
We spoke to other real estate agents and gave them the same interview opportunity. What amazed us the most was the primary focus to list our property on the internet; an MLS page of home facts and a few pictures. It certainly is a great way to reach a lot of people, but it’s not the only way. We felt as though other agents were too reliant on the internet alone and were missing potential opportunities and a personal touch. John and Anthony used the internet, but they also used local and city papers, direct mailings, and TV. The service that we got from the office was also tremendous. Sarah would send us reports each week that showed how many times our property was viewed online, reported who went to the house and when, as well as provided valuable feedback from viewers. Sarah became our point person at the office and whenever anything needed to be done, she would make sure it happened.
Seventeen days after signing with them we were entertaining two offers. John and Anthony were in contact with us through the entire negotiation process – which took hours, not days. Once we agreed on the final offer, Sarah set up all of the meter reading and fire marshal appointments that were required for us. It’s true, my head was spinning! But not from being overwhelmed, it was spinning from amazement on how quickly and efficiently the process went. “Start Packing” was no longer the McGeough Lamacchia Team Realty Executives tag-line for us; it was what we had to do now that they had done everything else! Don’t you know, they recommended people to help us pack and move us to our new home.
Selling your home doesn’t have to be an overwhelming endeavor, especially when you’re in capable hands. I whole-heartedly stand behind the folks at McGeough Lamacchia Team Realty Executives and have referred them to several friends and co-workers. If I had to sum up our experience in a few words, I would say that the McGeough Lamacchia Team provided us with commitment, experience, professionalism and innovation.
Thank you to John, Anthony and Sarah for all that you’ve done for us. The next time we need a real estate agent, we’re coming back to you!- Beck and Marley, Watertown, Massachusetts
John and Anthony were instrumental in their ability to negotiate the price on our new home. The buying and selling of a home can be very stressful in this marketplace and their team made it seamless, and I am not just saying this!- Patrick and Liane T., Natick, Massachusetts
I want to thank Anthony and John for making the sale and purchase of my homes so successful and go so smoothly. The sale of my home was a quick one that involved separating the feelings from the facts. My friend told me “I am sure you picked the right guys to sell your house.” Never having purchased a home, I needed to rely totally on Anthony and John’s expertise. I believe that all proceedings went very smoothly because of their team’s attention to detail and desire to be successful. So thank you Anthony and John for selling my house, helping me buy my new house, baskets of chocolates and most of all for making me laugh when I was super stressed! I hope you succeed in all you do.- Denise A., Framingham, Massachusetts
Our experience with Anthony and John was great. We were first time home buyers and the McGeough Lamacchia Team was great to work with. Anthony and John answered our many questions and showed us numerous houses. They know the lay of the land and have solid relationships with many buyers’ agents, which was a great advantage to have. They have a talent for reading the properties and, in turn, really helped us find a house not only within our budget but also one we can really turn into a home. The McGeough Lamacchia Team works well together and you can tell they love what they do. We look forward to many years in our new home and will be recommending this team to friends!- Timothy S., Sudbury, Massachusetts
The McGeough Lamacchia Team made by home buying experience an enjoyable one. Their attention to detail and general customer service was phenomenal. I loved their SWAT team affect. Thanks again for all your help!!!- Patti N., Watertown, Massachusetts
