What Clients Are Saying
Just want to say thanks for making my home buying transaction as smooth as possible.  I realize I'm not the easiest person to deal with but you handled everything with the utmost professionalism and a friendly smile to boot right up to the making sure I was awake for the closing.  Seriously, thank you for all the insight on the Dedham community, school system, it's refreshing to talk with a sales agent that actually lives in the town they work in and can accurately describe things in detail...made me feel a lot more comfortable with my purchase...along with you negotiating as well...I have already referred you to friends and family and will continue to do so in the future... 

Thanks again...your newest Dedham residents,
Tom and Brendan Maguire
I cannot thank you enough for helping me buy my condo.  For someone who had never bought a home before, you were absolutely fantastic with showing me the ins and the outs of how to buy.  You are very professional and nice to work with and I feel that helped things run so smoothly with the seller and her agents.  I also wanted to thank you for your help in finding a reputable home inspector and how great you were with communicating with my mortgage broker .  Most of all, I appreciate your honesty and integrity.  If anyone I know is looking for a great agent, I will most certainly refer them to you.  
Thanks again!

My fiance and I met Lisa at an open house last year and she was so incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and sweet that we asked her to be our real estate agent as we searched for our first home.  We had been looking on our own for quite some time and it had been such an overwhelming and daunting process. 
Lisa took us under her wing, showed us the ropes and was never too busy to show us a home or simply meet at her office to talk.  She didn't even complain when she had to show us the same house multiple times due to my indecisiveness!  It was so nice having someone who really knows the market and the area to give us a sense of security and confidence. 
She was such an integral part of our first home-buying experience. I will never forget how much she bent over backwards for us to make sure we were taken care of, comfortable and were getting the best deal.  Lisa was incredibly professional and prompt, she always got back to us immediately and she still checks in on us periodically to see how everything is going with our new home! 
 I couldn't recommend a better real estate agent to sell you a home or to help you sell yours.  We lucked out big time!!  Thanks Lisa :)

My wife and I were in the hunt for our first home and began the daunting yet exciting process of visiting multiple open houses. Early on in the process we had the pleasure of meeting Lisa and immediately felt very comfortable and excited to work with her in our search. She was extremely patient with us as we perused and scanned EVERY home within our price range and desired location. Never forceful, yet always supportive, Lisa guided us through a very difficult first offer on a home. Deftly walking the line between supportive and knowledgeable real estate agent and good friend, she helped us move past an inappropriate home and difficult seller’s agent, finally leading us to our lovely first home. She was always available to meet with us at almost any hour to answer our questions and concerns, and to even share a laugh or two.

Her warm personality was a constant from the first meeting to the end. She was thorough and engaged through the whole process without being intrusive or overbearing. She truly became and is still a part of our life and family. We could not imagine our life now in our beautiful home without her honest and heartfelt support.

We would not hesitate in suggesting Lisa to anyone interested in the services of the BEST real estate agent that we know (except for the jealously of wanting to keep her all to ourselves!) She is the true definition of a professional and a friend!

Thank you so much Lisa and look forward to seeing you at our Cinco de Mayo party in our new home!

Bob and I tried unsuccessfully last year to sell our house (because of the economic conditions at the time).  We were not very happy with the RE agent that represented us last year, so we decided to choose a different agency.  We met Lisa through a neighbor and after interviewing a couple of agents, selected Lisa.  It was the best decision that we could have made.  From the start Lisa was very proactive and kept us informed through the whole process.  We had some glitches which Lisa kept on top of .  Since the purchasers of our house were “first-time” buyers, it was a long and drawn-out process, but Lisa followed through on all of the paperwork and made the process as painless as possible.  Bob and I would highly recommend Lisa to any buyer or seller to act as their agent.  Thank you Lisa for your friendly, courteous, informative and hands-on professionalism.

 Thanks again,

Bob and Madelyn Jeffery
"tireless buyer advocate" would best describe the work Lisa did for us during the search and purchase of our home. Lisa understood what we were looking for and tailored her search to meet our needs. She helped us through the entire process including the mortgage phase of the purchase
and worked hard to answer any difficult questions that came up.
Lisa showed a great understanding of the current housing market in sifting through unrealistic sellers and recommended a great home inspector. Her daily MLS updates via email made the search much easier.
Since our purchase we have no regrets and have Lisa to thank for helping find the right home.
Thanks so much!

I was a first time home buyer who had been wanting to buy for years. I tried to educate myself online and look for places on my own but after hitting a few open houses and seeing horrible properties, I knew I needed a buyer's agent. Lisa was recommended to me and I couldn't have had a better agent and advocate during my home buying process! During the process Lisa listened to what I wanted, located properties that met my criteria, was a sounding board while "kicking tires" at house visits, and more importantly, was extremely knowledgeable about the entire process. She found me my townhouse, which was everything I wanted and is such a wonderful place to live. Not only did she find me the perfect property, she helped me through every step including suggesting a fantastic home inspector, the perfect mortgage agent (after the one I had chosen was horrible to work with), and keeping the entire purchasing process stress free. I literally had the easiest home buying experience of anyone I know and it was worry free from start to finish thanks to Lisa's help. I will recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to enjoy their home buying or selling experience and have someone to protect their interests. I am already sharing her contact information with friends I know won't buy for a year or two, because I can't imagine using another realtor. You feel like Lisa is an extension of your family with the care and assistance she provides during this process and for her ability to go to bat for you when negotiating. For anyone who wants an experienced, knowledgeable, extremely helpful, and overall wonderful person to find your dream home or help you sell so you can move into a new home, Lisa is the perfect agent!

My husband and I met Lisa at an open house where she was the seller's agent. Although that particular house was not right for us, we knew that Lisa was. We were planning on putting our house on the market and we knew Lisa would be the perfect agent. She is extremely friendly, knowledgable, and professional. Our house was a tricky sale; it was small and on a very busy road. Lisa stuck with us and helped us with marketing and price adjustments. With every piece of advice we knew that Lisa had our best interest at heart. We knew that she put her herself in our shoes when making suggestions and there was never any pressure to make decisions. At the same time, Lisa helped us find our new house. She was objective and supportive throughout the entire process. When both offers were accepted, Lisa's support was phenomenal! Lisa was able to recommend local and reliable contractors, plumbers, inspectors, mortgage brokers, and lawyers. She took care of the majority of the process. In fact, while we were away on vacation, Lisa ran to Lowe's to pick up the new fire detectors and installed them for us so we would pass inspection. We cannot thank Lisa enough for all she did for us. We closed on both houses on the same day and there was not one glitch in the process. Both closings were quick and easy. We credit that entirely to Lisa's attention to detail and knowledge of the process. Lisa is an excellent agent who we now consider a good friend! We would highly recommend her as an agent to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Reading the blog accounts of Lisa Iantosca's work, one encounters a flurry of compliments, praises, and satisfactions, all voices of people who were highly impressed with her skills. Well add us to the list; and our statements  - like theirs  - are not hyperbolic but factual.
If there is such a thing as a "real estate calling" then she has received it. She combines a genuine, open personality, a dogged, committed work ethic, a finely tuned aesthetic in staging the property,  and a deeply ingrained and convincing savvy of how the real estate market works.
We the sellers, the buyer, the house inspector, the lawyers, the Fire Dept., the seller's agent - all were satisfied, and much of that accord we attribute to Lisa's professional skills. So trust the website statements and keep in mind that when working with Lisa, the buyer and the seller need not beware.

I can not say enough about Lisa. Hard work and dedication to the client are just two of her many attributes. She helped to sell our mom’s family home (myself and my two brothers) which was dear to our hearts and difficult to let go of.  Seeking out the right buyer was very important to us and she understood this thoroughly. It went on the market in the Fall which was not the best time but she worked endlessly on showings and offers to get us the right buyer. She brought in some of her own furnishings and a "welcome” mat to make it look "Homey” for the Open Houses. Even through this past winter with the endless snow storms that wouldn’t quit!!;  she kept on top of unforeseen problems before they might become larger emergencies. Lisa has an endless list of contractors to help in any situation.  Communication was a constant! Keeping in touch with her whether it be by phone, text or email, was so easy. She was always available no matter what time of day or evening. If we had any questions or concerns she was always available to lend a hand, offer advice or sometimes just do it herself. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

She’s the Best!!!

Thank you so much for helping us find our first home! You made the entire home buying process easy. We appreciate the numerous days you spent taking us to see the many houses in Dedham. You even keep in touch now with helpful recommendations on electricians, plumbers, and town info. We could not have made it through the process without you. Thanks again!

Paul and Alissa Siciliano

Dear Lisa,

Many thanks to you for making our first home buying experience a breeze!  When we first met, we felt very comfortable and confident that you would be a great agent and you didn’t disappoint.   Your familiarity with West Roxbury and Dedham really helped our search.  We were most impressed with your attention to client service – you were always available for questions or concerns and kept in close touch with us through every step of the process. You made us feel as if we were your most important clients.
We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family.  Best of luck in the new office!

In this tough housing market we were looking to sell a home which we had been renting out. We interviewed several agents and selected Lisa as our seller agent.  She was honest, sincere, knew the market and seemed to have a lot of energy. 

We could not have been more pleased with the results. We sold our home in less than 4 month. In this market a real testament to Lisa’s efforts. She kept us up to date on all activity; she helped use through some changes we needed to make. She managed all the interaction with other agents and potential buyers. In short she was great.

If we ever are selling a home again or are looking to buy a new home we would without hesitation work with Lisa.

I had been searching for my first home for over two years when I met Lisa.  I was just about ready to give up and throw in the towel.  In just a few weeks, Lisa found me the perfect house!  She listened to my mile long wish list and devised a plan for looking at houses.  Lisa enthusiastically accompanied me to open houses and set up prompt appointments for every home I wanted to see.  She prescreened areas for me and never pressured me to look at anything just to make a sale.  Lisa met me at just about any time of day and always returned my emails and phone calls in a timely manner.  Most importantly, she was honest.  She does not have an agenda and truly works for the client.  She is so knowledgeable in the real estate arena and knew where to find the answers if she did not know them.  Lisa always told me, "Call me if you need anything."  And she meant it.  She always made me feel comfortable and we had many laughs.  Lisa truly made my first home buying experience a great one and I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.  
Thank you so much Lisa!

My wife and I had been searching for our first home for months but weren’t finding anything.  We endlessly searched online, visited open houses, met with different real estate agents, and signed up for various email lists, but still had no luck.  Then, one day, I stumbled into the Donahue-Brennan office in downtown Dedham and met Lisa.  I instantly felt like I had found the right real estate agent for us.  My wife and I sat down with Lisa and told her what we were looking for and she didn’t even flinch when we told her our (very modest!) budget.  Whenever we saw a listing we wanted to see she would immediately set up an appointment to see it.  She never pushed us to make an offer on a home she didn’t think was right for us; she truly wanted to find us the right home and, unlike most real estate agents we had met, saw us as more than another commission.  We ended up finding a condo with everything we were looking for—and in a town we had only dreamed of owning a home in!  Lisa was with us through every step of the closing process and was able to answer (or find out the answer to) and question we had.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to everyone we know. 

Thank you Lisa!

I just want to take the time to "thank you" for the sale of my dad's house. I have been bragging to everyone how you sold it in only 10 days! I was amazed at how fast it went. Especially when last year he had it on the market and it never budged. I thought for sure since it was a one bedroom, that it was going to be a hard sell. You staged the home accenting its best features and it really got potential buyers interested. Also, I can't thank you enough for helping my father with the whole transition. He was overwhelmed with the thought of the process without my mom there to do it with him. You walked him through all the steps, got him names and numbers when needed and also took the time to sit down and explain everything. He said he couldn't have asked for a better experience. I believe your professionalism and enthusiasm about your job made it sell so quick and so smoothly. Thank you again for all your hard work.

For the last two years, Lisa has stuck by my husband and I as we searched for a new home.  Already in a condo we lived somewhat comfortably in, we were looking for very specific features in a new home.  Lisa never gave up on us.  We went to numerous open houses and searched online daily.  Lisa knew our family and gave great advice on home features, neighborhoods and market values.  After two years of searching on and off, Lisa found us our dream home!  I never would’ve picked up on this house if Lisa didn’t suggest it.  We quickly put our condo on the market and Lisa found our buyer in 1 month.  The process of selling and buying a home all at once was crazy but Lisa held our hands through the whole process.  It was Lisa’s commitment to us, her professionalism and market knowledge coupled with her wonderful, caring personality that made the experience quite easy and pleasant.  Lisa truly cares about her clients.  I would very strongly recommend Lisa Iantosca to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

We discovered this agency after seeing a property we were interested in and contacted the listing agent. It happened to be Lisa Iantosca handling the listing and she was quick to conect with us and get us into the property. Not only is Lisa experienced with selling but she is personable and her follow up to emails and phone calls is exceptional. She is not pushy and has a passion for finding people the right house within their price range. She is very knowledgeable about the surrounding neighborhoods and is proactive when it comes to meeting the needs of the buyer. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone searching for a new house. Call Lisa and start the process and before you know it, you will own a home!

My husband and I highly recommend Lisa Iantosca, she is the best realtor you will ever find! She is extremely knowledgeable in the field and is a dedicated veteran realtor. Using Lisa as a listing agent and a buyers agent we can tell you that she is excellent at both jobs and she always has her clients best interest in mind.
 She gives honest advice based on market research and analysis and years of experience. Lisa is a very experienced negotiator and knew exactly how to navigate the negotiations on our purchase and sale. If you want to achieve your real estate dreams then my husband and I definitely recommend using Lisa!
 She's a great person who also happens to be the best at her job! After 3 years in our house we are still toasting her for the excellent job she did for us (in a very competitive/low inventory market) and most recently celebrating the sale of our condo by Lisa in just five days on the market!

I highly recommend Lisa Iantosca of Donahue Real Estate in Dedham as your real estate agent.  
Lisa is smart, hardworking and diligent.  She is a tireless worker and there is no task too small or too large that she won't do.  
I had two homes fall through for various reasons before we found the right house. Lisa was so positive and always available to help me keep looking as I was getting discouraged.  
When we finally found the right house, it wasn’t the smoothest transaction but Lisa's persistence and determination helped me get the deal done.  She truly is a great advocate and asset to have on your side before during and after the deal is closed.  If your buying or selling a home, call her, you will be glad that you did!
