There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.

When putting my home on the market after 24 years I interviewed 3 Realtors and chose Lisa Howitt. There were a few factors I considered to be the most important:

  1. Knowledge of the area – Lisa has been selling homes in Melrose for over 28 years. She know the market and has an extensive buyers network. Lisa has made professional relationships with the people at City Hall, Fire Department, Public Works etc. so if anything arises in the process she knows who to call. I had to get some wood removed from my behind my garage – she even had a guy for that!
  2. Experience in selling homes – Lisa is a professional. She has sold hundreds, maybe thousands of homes, she has taken additional courses (How to stage your house for example) to get the most money for the seller.
  3. Communication style – Lisa is open, honest and tells it like it is. She is always available and clearly communicates the process and the next step.If a problem arises she works directly to get it fixed.
  4. Century 21 Sexton & Donohue, Inc. did not offer the lowest commission rate HOWEVER, I am so thankful I chose the. I got more than the asking price and when a few hiccups occurred it was painless. Well worth the extra!

"Lisa always responded to our calls promptly or let us know when she would be unavailable.  That helped us feel very supported throughout the process.  Nothing is worse than being ignored.  She was always straight with us, even when the news was bad.  She was extremely professional AND friendly at the same time.  That is hard to do."

Nicole Stamos



"Lisa did a great job selling our condo!  She really listens to her clients.  Lisa is always professional and made the whole experience of selling a property a little easier.  We would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell a house."

Mike & Ann Plumer



Thank you for all the work you have done regarding the sale of our home. We have done this several times during our married life and no one has ever done as through or more comprehensive job of putting the information together to educate the seller as you have.

"Lisa was very honest with us. We truly felt she cared about us and our home. She also never promised us anything she couldn't do just so we would hire her or her company."

Joseph & Mary Fielding




�I had to relocate to California before my Condo was sold. Lisa did an outstanding job keeping me informed on the progress of leads. When an offer was accepted, she made sure everything went smoothly for the closing. If I ever move back to the area, I would call Lisa again.�
