Lisa Brown made my first home buying experience wonderful - constantly helping me navigate the many twists and turns along the way. There’s no way I could have done this without her.

I would recommend Lisa Brown to anyone who asked. She gave us a fair market assessment of our property. We sold in 3 days. She went above and beyond to get us the best offer, keep an eye on the house aftetr we moved when our closing was delayed 2 weeks. Covid 19 did not affect the selling of the house in anyway.

We purchased our first home using Lisa as our relator and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. From low inventory to a pandemic and even a hurricane Lisa never gave up on trying to find us our home. The processes went easier than I could have imagined. Lisa listened to our likes and dislikes about homes and made sure to keep our search on focus. Ultimately we ended up in a town that we weren't planning on buying in, but Lisa knew what we were looking for and on a whim took us up to see a place that hit all our boxes and we knew it was the one. She is an expert in the area and I wouldn't have wanted to use anyone else. Thanks so much for all your hard work! Purchased a Home in Candlewood Shores, Brookfield CT

We thought that selling our home amidst the Covid-19 pandemic was going to be difficult. I can't say enough good things about having Lisa as our real estate agent during this time. Her advice as to best market price, what improvements to focus on and which ones to forget doing, and explaining how our home would be marketed and handled for prospective buyers during the pandemic were all carefully explained. We listened and adhered to her advice, and the result was tremendous. We received multiple offers on the first day and accepted one of them very close to asking price. During the month ahead of closing the sale she kept us apprised of closing details and recommended an attorney to work on our behalf to handle the closing. In all details, she is the consummate professional. We recommend her highly.

Lisa is very knowledgeable about the market, a great communicator, and responsive. By way of background, we approached Lisa when thinking of selling our home and ultimately decided not to list; however, a neighbor's home was listed a year later and Lisa subsequently asked of my wife and I if one of her buyers could view our home even though off-market. We came to agreeable terms within a week so I would say that's thinking outside the box, which is what you want in a service provider. Sold Home in Rivington Danbury CT

Lisa is the super bowl champion of real estate agents - she handled all aspects of a challenging sale with incredible efficiency and expertise. Neither overly optimistic or pessimistic when evaluating my older house with a unique layout on a heavily wooded lot, her pricing recommendations proved to be right on target in spite of few good comps and a difficult local market. She staged the property beautifully, created effective stat-of-the-art promotions, got them online practically overnight, and kept me informed of all the resulting activity. Lisa attracted the right buyer faster than I thought possible and handled twists and turns in the negotation perfectly to keep the deal on track and get it closed quickly. But highest praise goes to the way she went above and beyond to handle the issues that arose from the buyer's inspection. Both in getting a reasonable agreement on which items we'd resolve and finding cost-effective contractors to perform some major work immediately, she was outstanding. When necessary she brought in her partner Brian for his skills and support, and they got everything done on schedule for closing. I've worked with real estate agents from a half-dozen moves in the past, none compares to Lisa. Sold Home in Southbury CT

Lisa was extremely helpful throughout the entire process of purchasing my condo. She was knowledgeable and professional at all times and was very thorough. I was also very appreciative of how quickly she answered all of my questions. The experience was made very easy for me thanks to Lisa and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

We have known Lisa for over 8 years. Within those 8 years, we have bought and sold with Lisa multiple times. Lisa is knowledgeable and does everything in her power to make everyone happy. Lisa understands timing and the importantance of her buyers/ sellers needs. We would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to rent, buy or sell. When trying to sell our home in Brookfield, Lisa would come after each showing to check on our cat. Lisa cares and goes above and beyond. We appreciate you Lisa Brown!

Lisa was absolutely amazing!!!! She got us the best offer we could have imagined on the house we were selling in 4 DAYS! She helped us navigate the process, explained negotiations, and the inspection process as the seller. In addition, Lisa helped us find a perfect house to buy that fit our growing family and current needs. She took us to see multiple houses, was constantly looking for more houses for us to view, and only showed us houses based on what we wanted in a new house. The sellers of the house we bought were absolutely crazy, and Lisa was amazing. My husband and I would not have made it through the process without Lisa. She explained everything to us and kept us calm/ sane, she really advocated for us and pushed on matters that needed pushing, and she actually paid for one inspection item out of her commission in order for us to get the house. She is incredibly professional, and wonderful to work with. Constant check-ins and updates were appreciated. I can't say enough great things about her and the Brokerage of New England. I would recommend her 100%! Sold Home in Brookfield & Bethel CT

No words can express how grateful my husband and I are for all that Lisa did for us in helping us to buy our first home; our dream home! From the beginning, Lisa would always make herself avail able to us in looking at homes. After my husband and I telling her what we were looking for, she knew exactly what we'd like and made sure to give us suggestions in homes that were more up our alley. We found our dream home after only looking at 4 houses and compared each one after that to "the one". The whole process was so nerve wrecking to us b/c we've never bought a home before, but Lisa stayed by our side and was at our beckon call to answer all our questions and put our minds at ease. I really don't know if I would have been able to keep my sanity if it wasn't for her; not to mention that I was 7 months pregnant by the time we closed and my hormones were all over the place. We couldn't have had a more professional, knowledgeable, kindhearted realtor than Lisa. Thank you so much for being a part of this special chapter in our lives. We will forever be grateful for you!

We met with several agents before selecting Lisa. Her honesty and knowledge of the local market impressed us. She listened to our goals, and she came up with a plan to reach those goals. We put the house on the market on a Friday evening. On Saturday we had an offer. Soon the bidding war was over and we had an offer almost 20K above the asking price. Lisa was key to the negotiations when some things were found wrong with the house from the inspection. She always kept us up to date, and she kept prodding the buyer's agent when we didn't get answers. We closed in about 35 days. Now we are able to start our retirement far away with nothing here to tie us down, which was one of our goals. We highly recommend Lisa. Sold a Home in Danbury CT Purchased a Condo in Southbury CT

This was our first experience purchasing a townhouse and more importantly the first time buying in Connecticut. From the very first meeting with Lisa, she had our best interest at heart. She listened to our needs, our wants and our price limit. She somehow took this long list of criteria and was able to find us the home we have been looking for. She was professional, compassionate, and understanding. She was able to negotiate an amazing deal and walk us through each step with knowledge and expertise. Lisa's response to a phone call, text, or email, (and there were many), was swift and even after we have closed on our property she still continues to help us with incidentals. I would highly recommend Lisa, whether to buy, sell or to get insight into todays market. She is one of the most kindhearted, sincere professionals I have had the pleasure of working with. Do not hesitate to contact her for all of your real-estate needs. A true professional! Purchased Home in Danbury CT "Woodland Hills"

Lisa was indeed impressive. I was not happy having to sell my townhouse and Lisa under-stood my reluctance in not wanting to budge on price, etc. She stepped up to the plate being proactive in marketing, followed through every step of the way regarding what needed to be done....the result was the sale happened seemingly effortlessly on my part, and at the deadline I set.

It took almost 1 year to find the right real estate agent for my family. Lisa impress me right from the start. She interviewed me on the phone and we meet about 2 hours later. When we meet her she had over 40 home listings for my wife to look at. compared to the other real estate agents that I had and spoke to she was always on top of my questions and concerns. With in 1 month of being teamed up with Lisa she found us our dream home. In the area and location that we wanted. I was a 1st time home buyer and she was great. I already told friends and family how great she was in helping me through the process. Real Estate Purchased - Brookfield CT

Lisa is an exceptional real estate agent. She has the patience of a saint and showed me MANY, MANY homes, all with the criteria that I was looking for. She didn't waste my time taking me to homes I didn't want to see and always had the energy and excitement I had when exploring all these homes. Even through multiple stops and starts in my search process, Lisa was there for me and would send me updates and schedule showings that worked best for me. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for the home of your dreams, she certainly found mine. Real Estate Purchased - Candlewood Lake Area

Selling a home and moving can be such a stressful time - we have bought and sold a number of homes over the past 30+ years, and Lisa stands out as the best Realtor we've ever worked with. Her calm, professional demeanor and attention to detail made the experience so much easier and her knowledge of the latest marketing techniques is unsurpassed.

Lisa was a terrific real estate agent for us. She did all of the essential work of finding houses that strictly met our criteria, which made our search much more efficient. She also was willing to work with our schedule and was highly responsive to email queries, giving us a strong sense of commitment to our needs. One of Lisa's particular strengths is her dedication to getting all of the relevant information pulled together quickly. In preparation for a discussion on comparables with a seller's agent, Lisa pulled the town records on the taxes for specific properties that omitted them in MLS and also spoke to selling agents of some of the comparables to get a factual understanding of the specifics of each of the key comps. This detailed, comprehensive effort gave us the information we needed to make fair offers and gave us the confidence to move forward with the biggest purchase of our life. We would strongly recommend Lisa to anyone seeking a buyer's representative - her excellent attitude and professional commitment made all the difference Real Estate Purchased - Sandy Hook CT
