Recent Client Reviews

"I cannot say enough good things about Lucky to Live Here Realty and Elena and Joyce. They are the consummate professionals who truly love what they do ... and eat, sleep, breathe real estate. After using other brokers in the area, with no success, we decided to hire Lucky to Live Here to represent us in the sale of our home. I felt we were in good hands right from the beginning. They gave us an honest appraisal and marketing strategy and were relentless in their determination to sell our home. Calls and texts were answered promptly; so there was always communication. This is not the case with all brokers.Additionally, they have the energy and drive that’s needed to market a house. Ours was not a “cookie cutter” house and needed just the right buyer. But, the ‘icing on the cake’ was the way they worked up to the final moment the house was sold. We had another accepted offer with contracts at the ready... but not yet signed...and in the interim of waiting for the signed contract, they sold the house to another buyer at full ask... all cash!! Now, that is a true testament to them and they way they work for you up till the very end. Joyce and Elena are not only the best brokers I’ve worked with... but the nicest. If you are looking to sell or buy...look no further than Lucky to Love Here. They are the best." - Carol Striker

"Elena and Joyce are extremely hardworking, consummate professionals.  They do a phenomenal job marketing your property.  Its a super competitive a world out there. Elena, Joyce and her team work closely with you to strategically differentiate, gain attention and break through the clutter. During the likelihood of experiencing drama during the listing, negotiation and closing phases, I've been consistently impressed by their poise and professionalism.  They are truly standouts and I can't recommend them enough." - Peter Russell

"When selecting someone to sell your house you should visit another open house the real estate company is hosting. My wife and I visited numerous open houses on our search for a new home and Eleana and Joyce clearly stood out from all the other agents. They were extremely professional and they took the time to understand the house that they were selling and all the things that made it special. They also made sure to follow up with you to get feedback and gauge your level of interest in the property. Their level of communication via social media and newsletters on new properties was an invaluable tool. All these things made it an extremely easy choice to go with Lucky to Live Here for selling our house and it paid off. We had three offers in less than a week and were in contract in less than two weeks. We appreciated all of their efforts and advice throughout the process! An incredible team that goes the extra mile to make their customers happy." - Kevin Dattolico
