Why Buy your home with us?

We know the neighborhood

Whether it’s your first purchase, or you are an experienced home buyer, buying a home is one of your most significant investments in life. The more prepared you are, the less overwhelming the buying process will be. Hire us and we will provide you with detailed information to assist you in marking an intelligent and informed buying decision.

Here are some initial steps to get you started:


  1. Get financially fit! Start saving and review your credit history. Be sure to pay all your bills on time. If you need, or think you need to repair your credit there are many services to choose from.
  2. Find out how much house you can afford! Know what you can afford before you start looking. This will ensure you don’t waste your time, or set your heart on a home you may not be able to buy. Consult with a mortgage broker, bank, or financial advisor.
  3. Prepare a checklist! Define the most important home features and begin shopping for your ideal home. By defining these requirements, you won’t waste time looking at houses that don’t meet your needs. Key features include: bedrooms, baths, amenities, garage, age, style, town, and/or neighborhoods.
  4. Let's start looking at homes! Time frame on finding a home will vary depending on availability. It is best to give yourself at least 2-3 months.


Once we locate the home you love, we will guide you through the remaining steps until you are at the closing table.

Thanks for all your help with the sale of my home in Danbury. You definitely went above and beyond your responsibilities to make the process as smooth and painful as possible.

I would highly recommend your services to anyone who is planning on buying or selling a home in the Danbury area.

Thanks again and see you soon.
Mr. & Mrs. C. Hernandez
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. 

She was a delight to work with and with her guidance and hard work, we had an offer in 2 weeks!

Mr. & Mrs. Pickett
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

Mr. & Mrs. C. Cook
My husband and I came to Lisa through a reference from another Re/Max agent in the south. My husband had previously purchased a home and I had not. We were looking to move from an apartment in the White Plains area to a single family house in the Danbury area which neither of us were very familiar with. Lisa was awesome with both of us. It was my first experience and there were so many things that I didn't know.

Even though my husband had bought a house before, the area is so different from NC where he had previously purchased that he had almost as many questions. Lisa was always patient and listened to what we wanted. Which was probably really hard for he because we weren't quite sure what we wanted ourselves! She introduced us to the area and helped us figure out where we wanted to be. We both have tough travel schedules for work and Lisa was flexible and always available to help us out or show us (or just one of us) a few more houses.

She stuck with us through the process showing us house after house until we found the perfect one. Lisa was so good, that she found a house outside of the area that we thought we wanted and convinced us to see it because she thought it would be perfect. She was right, my husband fell in love with the neighborhood and the house as soon as she showed it to him and when I saw it so did I. We have lived here for almost 2 years now and if we have to move again in the future, Lisa will be the first person we'll call to both list the house and help us find our next home.

S. Kotzker
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. (CT Homes - Candlewood Lake CT Real Estate)

This was my first home purchase and a complicated short sale and Lisa was the perfect agent to work with. She explained the whole process to me and answered any questions I had almost instantly. She worked incredibly hard to make sure everything went through smoothly even after we closed. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the area.

Real Estate Agent, Lisa was amazing. She was attentive to our needs and goals, extremely professional and focused, and ALWAYS available for us whenever we needed her. By FAR the best Agent i have ever come across. She really made us at ease with the information she provided us.

Mr. & Mrs. J. Gallagher-Blaiotta
Lisa was truly the best Realtor I could have asked for! It was my first home buying experience and she was by my side and had my best interest at heart throughout the entire process. Lisa has a great understanding of the real estate business and leverages her key insights and business acumen to get you what you want. Lisa was very honest and open about the homes, as if she was buying it for herself. She never pressured me to look at a home outside of my criteria and worked with me as though I was a friend vs her client.

Anyone that is thinking of buying/selling their home should absolutely contact Lisa! She is fantastic at what she does and has such grace and passion about her clients. I truly appreciated all the extra little things that she did to make my home buying experience the best it could have been!

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.
Mr. & Mrs. Carratu
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.
D. Zalesky
Lisa walked us through several homes over more than a years period of time. Helping us place a bid on a short sell, while protecting us on the sell of our previous home. Unfortunately, our home sale fell through and we lost that house. But no worries, when it was time and the house was right for us Lisa was again there for us every step of the way. Providing appropriate and multiple recommendations for needed services, but never being biased while providing us the best possible in their fields of expertise. Lisa is well versed in her vocation, familiar with multiple facets. She represented our interest well over many phases of the home buying process. I'm not sure I could say anybody is perfect, but when it comes to real estate, Lisa comes very close. She may not have all the answers, but she knows where and how to find the ones that matter. I highly recommend her services and expertise to anybody at any time. 

Thank you again Lisa, you did a fantastic job!
Mr. & Mrs. T. Torres
Lisa went out of her way to make my first time buying experience an absolute pleasure. She was very knowledgeable and worked hard to get me everything that I wanted. When the time come for me to sell/ purchase, I will definitely call Lisa.

N. Gurney
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!

Brian was extemely knowledgeable and patient with me. Buying my first home was scary at first; however,Brian was able to answer every question and help me choose the perfect home. I couldn't feel any better and more at ease having made my first large purchase. Thanks again Brian!

Mr. Young
I had Brian McDonald list my property and was extraordinarily satisfied with his knowledge, promptness, and overall professionalism. He had an unbelievable understanding of the greater Danbury market. I would recommend him highly to anyone in the market to buy, sell, or rent their home, condo, or apartment. I have used a number of other local realtors to buy, sell, and rent out my properties; however due to my great experience all future transactions will be with Brian McDonald and his company The Brokerage of New England.

Mr. Underhill
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.

Mr. & Mrs. Finnegan
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 available 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!

Having both bought and sold a house in the past 15 months, I can say, emphatically, that Lisa is a pleasant and professional agent who has all the right skills for this challenging market.
