Lisa was honest, straight-forward, always accessible and she did a great job representing our interests during negotiations. Her advice was invaluable, including her estimate on the proper price to put on our house. So glad we met her!!!
Lisa was extremely knowledgeable about the Cape from real estate values to the specific personalities, characteristics and statistics of the many villages and towns. She listened to our specific criteria and recommended those areas/homes that best fit our requirements. Lisa was also very thorough keeping on top of all details during the process and communicating back to us. She was a great advocate looking out for our best interest all along the way.
Lisa helped us buy a second home on cape cod. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area. She is very organized and stayed on top of things throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend her.
I highly recommend Lisa if you are selling or buying a historic home. We had been trying to sell a house, which was built in 1825, for several years. Lisa worked hard and sold our house in less than 4 months. Lisa utilized her many talents and worked very hard to sell our home. Lisa has both extensive knowledge and passion for antique homes. Her staging and photography skills are very good. Lisa is reliable, honest and a good listener. Throughout the sale Lisa kept us informed. There were never any surprises. Lisa brought more people through the house in the first month than we had previously. She did this with open houses and advertising. For this sale Lisa acted as a dual agent and during the whole experience I felt she was always representing my interests.
As our realtor Lisa used her interior decorating skills to do a fantastic job of staging our 1825 historic home and then employed a real tenacity to close the sale with interested buyers. Lisa uses her internet site very effectively as a sales tool and her blog as a method of communicating with sellers. We were kept informed of Lisa’s sales efforts on a daily basis. Our home was on the market for less than four months before we had an offer to purchase only slightly under our asking price.
Lisa was very professional in managing our home purchase in Harwich. She helped us establish a fair market price, and helped in the negotiation. When there were issues between acceptance and final closing she was on the ball, getting high praise from our attorney.
Finding a realtor to represent us was not easy, which is why we want to call your attention to Lisa Hassler of Historic Homes of Cape Cod, who served on an historic commission and taken workshops with HNE (Historic New England). As we began the process of finding a realtor, one firm that specializes in historic homes was not interested in our property. Four other realtors urged us not to pursue a PRA (Preservation Restriction Agreement) and suggested market valued far below what Ms. Hassler determined. She encouraged our intention to protect, marketed vigorously, conferred with the HNE team, and sold the property for more than we would have received with a less committed and savvy agent. She would be a great asset to anyone who wants to sell a PRA-protected property.
Lisa is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated professional. She appraised the home prior to listing and offered low cost suggestions which enhanced the value of our home. She assisted in setting a realistic asking price, which resulted in two offers and an agreement above the listing price on the first weekend. She guided us through the P&S process and stayed on top of issues arising from the inspection. We were very pleased and felt she went above our expectations to the point of shoveling snow to facilitate access.
Meeting Lisa for the first time was a pleasure, prior to setting off to look at properties she was thoughtful enough to put Care Packages together for us with snacks and drinks in case we got thirsty or hungry while on the road. She is informative, resourceful and always kept communication open through us and the sellers. Lisa is very knowledgeable of the area we were interested in. Lisa is a good negotiator, and knows how to close a deal. We would highly recommend her to anyone either looking to buy or sell a home.
