Lisa DeFonce has made selling our home a relatively painless experience. She marketed our house to its full potential and we sold our house in less than 3 months! During that time she also was busy trying to find our next home - taking us to many different houses through out the county until we found the perfect place for us. Again, Lisa has made the buying process go as smoothly as the selling! We feel we are truly fortunate to have Lisa as our realtor.

I have worked with Lisa's clients for years and she is well respected in the Real Estate community as well as her client base. She is well organized and has great respect for buyers and sellers alike! All buyers and sellers of Lisa's that I have worked with have always been astounded at the ease of their transaction. She is a true professional!

"Lisa's commitment and expertise in Real Estate is superb. She'll give you the information and professional opinion that you need, while trying to understand and meet your needs. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to purchase a home in Westchester County. She helped several of my clients that I referred to her in an excellent professional way"

Marianne Broekmeijer

Lisa is the best realtor I have met in lower Westchester County. We bought and sold homes through her and she was excellent for both transactions. I recommend her very highly

Travis Dowell

Very capable and dependable. Really knows her stuff and looks out for her client's interests. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Leo Cha

Lisa is professional, reliable, and a valuable trusted partner. Her insight, attention to detail, and area expertise, combined with her strengths in communication and understanding of people have made her a true asset for us to have on our team. I recommend her highly and would quickly recommend her to any client of mine.

Jennifer Schlosser

I strongly recommend Lisa DeFonce if you are looking for an agent. She is simply the best. She is calm, smart, professional, and reasonable, and able to handle difficult buyers, challenging buyer's agents, and unusual circumstances. She also goes beyond the call of duty. When we were rushing to get out of our house on closing day, she pitched in and helped us clean the house! This is one small example of how much a team player she is. She's also very informed and will keep you informed. You can't go wrong with Lisa!
