My wife, Judy, and I want to let you know how pleased and appreciative we are of the superlative service provided by Lisa Candella-Hulbert in regard to our home sale. Judy and I came to the realization that Lisa provided us the same level of service we would expect if we were selling a multimillion dollar home. Most importantly, we felt that in Lisa we truly had an advocate for our best interests. We quickly learned that her honesty and straightforwardness allowed us to trust her opinions and rely on her guidance. Among her many skills Lisa is a great listener and observer. Her ability to gauge our tastes and interests enabled us to participate in a...— J. & J. Grassi, Seller
I'm happy that the whole process was as quick and relatively painless as it turned out to be. We selected you from among the other realtors we were offered for a number of reasons. You probably know we initially had a choice of 2 realtors and we thought that both of their valuations were too high so we asked Graebel to arrange a 3rd valuation even though we knew that would likely bring down the maximum price we could ask for the house. We were impressed by the fact that you were very straightforward with us and your valuation was very fact based. We also liked your calm and professional demeanor, we felt as if you were someone we could work with an...— A. Poulter, Seller
Lisa is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with, and there have been quite a few. As an out-of-town seller, Lisa went above and beyond to make sure everything that had to be done was taken care of. Throughout the process, my trust in Lisa continued to grow. I felt she really had my interests at heart, pinged me when she thought I had to push on something to keep the process moving, and gave great guidance and advice. I would not hesitate to use her again. I only wish she could be my real estate agent where I live now!— L. Yang, Seller, Buyer
Lisa was outstanding in helping us find our first home. She only presented us with home options that were both in our budget and in our preferred style. Lisa was very flexible with her availability which allowed us to go out and see homes on our schedule. When we found the home we liked, Lisa negotiated a great price for us. Her knowledge of the market combined with her passion for finding us the right home made the process smooth and enjoyable. Anyone who is looking for a realtor should absolutely contact Lisa.— M. & N. Crane, Buyer
Lisa went above and beyond to make sure our purchase progressed to closing. We had difficulties on closing day with the sellers exit from the property and she literally sat in her car and watched the house for 8+ hours reporting back on the progress of the move. Lisa is amazing and patient and active with all parties and really made sure attorneys, agents, sellers, buyers were all moving in the right direction.— K. Bierman, Buyer
Lisa was a pleasure to work with. She is easy to reach by text or phone and was a great negotiator during a tough market. When I relocated out of state before closing, she checked in on my condo, and took care of all the on site details like repairs and COO. I highly recommend her.— M. Mardenfeld, Seller
We certainly are thankful for all your efforts and help during the summer in making our dream come true. As you could see, we love the house and the kids are settled. Your help at each step during the process made this possible.— B. & D. Soni, Buyer

Lisa is great at what she does. We couldn't have asked for a better person to guide us through selling and finding a place to go to after.— S. Layton - Seller
Lisa contacted us with potential buyers for our unlisted home. At first very reluctant to engage, she guided us through the process. We sold our home advantageously and she helped us find an interim apartment until we could complete our final move. She is competent and honest. We recommend her services.— J. Bebbington-Layton - Seller
Lisa and her team were so great to work with! She walked me through every step of the process, which was much needed as a first time home buyer. Lisa also thought outside of the box to help me stand out as a strong candidate in this tough market.— K. Collins - Buyer

I own several properties which are rented and then sold. Lisa has handled rental of one property in 2018 and recently in 2019 completed the sale of another property. She was immensely useful in coordinating the complete renovation of the unit before sale. The closing was among the smoothest!! Her knowledge of real estate values, marketability and assessing buyers/sellers is very helpful. She is very easy to communicate with- be it text, phone, emails etc. In addition to her brokerage skills, she is a very ethical person -- a rarity in the real estate world. In two years, I have listed with her successfully and will list with her again when I sell th...— Guli R. - Seller/Landlord
