Lara Gordon reviews

“Over the past 30 years, we have worked with a lot of realtors while buying and selling about a dozen homes.  In reflecting on this experience, Lara is by far the best realtor that we have ever worked with. We would recommend her to others without hesitation.”

~ sellers Bill & Beth Anne Darnall, Cambridge

“We were very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Lara. After interviewing four realtors with whom to list our condo, we went with Lara because she demonstrated the best understanding of our property, including appropriate pricing, and intimate/accurate knowledge of the current real estate market in our area.

Lara made us feel as though we were her only clients. She was responsive to all of our inquiries, maintained excellent communication via phone/email/text during each step of the sales process, and anticipated potential issues. Lara took the time to learn about our property and neighborhood, and she was present for every showing, well equipped to answer questions and promote interest in several prospective buyers.

Within one week we had several offers, in large part due to her extensive online and word-of-mouth marketing and well-timed open houses, and Lara skillfully helped to negotiate to get our asking price. She guided us through the closing process calmly resolving the inevitable last-minute obstacles with professionalism, humor and poise. We would recommend Lara very highly to anyone listing their home for sale. We can’t imagine our sale going any better than it did.”

“As first time homebuyers, the process of buying a home was both exhilarating and stressful. Lara was quick to detect what original features my fiance and I both loved and what level of home improvement projects we wanted to undertake. She worked closely with all parties involved and kept us well-informed along the way. Her pleasant and optimistic disposition made the homebuying process more enjoyable than I expected. We would certainly recommend Lara to anyone looking to buy or sell in Cambridge or Somerville”

~ homebuyer Shawna MacDonald, Somerville

“I commend Lara on her diligence and negotiation skills. She treated our family with honesty, respect and dignity in the sale of our beloved grandmother’s 100 year old home. Right down to negotiating the plants that were removed from the yard. Our family has high expectations; Lara met & exceeded all of them. Not only would I recommend Lara to others, I have!

~ seller Karen Hebb, Somerville

“Lara Gordon has done an excellent job in selling a condo for me in Cambridge. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the real estate market was in my opinion the reason that things went very well. What impressed me the most was that she handled everything. I was living out of state and anticipated many trips back to Cambridge. Except for the initial signing of the contract everything was handled through e-mails and phone contacts. She was thorough in handling problem areas and provided solutions when inputs were required by me. During the whole process I was kept informed step by step as to what was going on and what I had to do. I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and dedication.”

~ seller Paul Desaulniers, Cambridge

“When I decided to buy a condo in Cambridge, Lara made the whole experience very productive and painless at once. She was extremely organized and proactive, while taking the time to explain the entire process and what to anticipate step by step. The information Lara shared with me was very useful and never overwhelming. Also, her availability was quite impressive — both in terms of showing me condos and responding to my questions or concerns. Lara continued to be very helpful after the offer was made, keeping track of every document and deadline for me. It is clear that the whole process went so well and fast largely because of Lara’s great knowledge of the real estate market in the area. Her positive energy and friendly touch were much appreciated too! I would definitely recommend Lara to anyone looking for a home in Cambridge/Somerville.”

~ homebuyer Cedric Hubeau, Cambridge

“Lara was tremendous. A huge help every step of the way. Professional, thorough, detail-oriented, available when we needed her and very thoughtful. We’re looking forward to working with her again.”

~ sellers Jen & Frank Gorke, Somerville

“If I were to summarize my experience as a buyer with Lara in only three words, it would be “Detail, Experience & Patience.” From making sure all the forms were in on time, to critical deadlines, Lara never missed a beat and always provided ample time before things were due. I could not have selected a better buyer’s agent than Lara, and her experience in the market was critical for helping me make an educated purchase of my new home. Her patience for me as a first-time homebuyer was impeccable, from explaining things in great detail and encouraging questions, to showing me a wide variety of places in my price range, she always made me feel like she was there for whatever I needed. Even after the sale, she went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect with my new place and the move. Looking back at the whole process, Lara was exceptional to work with from day one and proved to keep the whole process on track with a great deal of care and expertise that I truly value.”

~ homebuyer Andrew Posner, Somerville

“I appreciated Lara’s deep knowledge of the local real estate market. This, for me, was her top asset. Aside from that, I liked her aggressive marketing (open houses, etc.) and proactive attitude (staging, etc.).”

~ seller Conor O’Mahoney, Cambridge
