During 2011 we purchased our first house. We had no idea how much was involved! We are so grateful that Lisa Donatelli was there with us, step by step, through the journey.
Lisa provided us with a list of available homes that fit several minimum requirements we had, and then arranged for us to see about twelve different houses. After each one she listened to what we liked and didn't like. She would point out good features of each house as she saw them, but she never tried to influence our decision with her opinions.
Once we decided which house we would like to buy, Lisa really stepped in and helped with all the details. She guided us in the process of making an offer by telling us what may happen at each step. She never told us what she thought we should offer, but she made recommendations on how to proceed. Lisa provided us with names of home inspectors, insurance agents, contractors, etc. that we could contact for the different inspections and estimates for repairs we might need. She was even able to negotiate a better price on the home inspection for us!
During all the addendum writing, Lisa kept us informed of what was happening and went to bat for us when she thought the language of the addendum was not in our favor.
Lisa was always available to answer questions, and rearranged her schedule several times to accommodate ours. She was knowledgeable in all aspects of the home buying process and she really was our advocate at every step.
If you are looking to purchase or sell a home, we would definitely recommend contacting Lisa Donatelli to be your advocate.
Thank you, Lisa!
