"When I decided to sell my parents’ house, I wanted an agent who was an experienced professional that I could feel comfortable working with - an agent who would listen to my concerns and respect my opinions. Also, it was essential that the agent be someone who appreciated the uniqueness and beauty of my parents’ Mid-century Modern home. And Lisa Cassella was that agent! Amazingly, she sold the house in less than 1 week during the worst week of the pandemic, for over the asking price! During the time we worked together, she demonstrated an expert knowledge of the real estate market and at the same time, was considerate and patient and a joy to work with. I can’t wait to work with Lisa again when it comes time to put my apartment on the market!"
“Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with and we have already started sharing her info with friends and family who need a real estate agent. She was extremely patient with all the properties we wanted to see, had good industry knowledge on home renovation and repair (and lots of contacts to help us price out the work we wanted to do), and was remarkably responsive even at inconvenient times. And most importantly, she was not pushy at all, and understood that it was more important for us to be comfortable with our big decision than to push something that wasn't the right fit long-term. Thanks Lisa for all your help! ”
"Lisa was tremendously diligent in finding people to buy our condominium, advising us on the quality of our prospective buyers, and skillfully negotiating a completely satisfactory price for our property. Thank you, Lisa!"
"I had a wonderful experience working with Lisa! She was extremely responsive, reliable (ALWAYs on time), and listened to all of my asks/wants. She always made herself available to show me a variety of houses and I was very happy with the process. Thank you, Lisa!"
"Lisa guided me through the prelisting, listing, negotiation, and sale of my condo with a calm and professional hand. She is extremely communicative which was very important to me. She connected me to movers and a real estate attorney. If I texted or called she responded quickly with answers. I had already moved to another state when we listed my place and she took care of all the details that needed attending to which was greatly appreciated. There was nothing that I asked of her, that she couldn’t do. Lisa was receptive to my input and altogether we had a great outcome...selling for my asking price. I highly recommend Lisa Cassella and the team she is with at Compass."
