Customer Stories and Recommendations 

Here is the story of buyers V and C who searched for their home for over 2 years.  Please read in their words what the experience was like working with me.  
They purchased their beautiful home in Cambridge December, 2016.

 
We have worked with Sandy for a little over 2 years. She is not the typical agent that we have known or heard about. In the initial few months, we changed our minds several times about the town to buy the house in, and Sandy was always accommodating and sent us the listings accordingly. In fact, when we suggested a distant suburb, she was very forthcoming and told us that she was not very familiar with that town, and that we would benefit from working with a different agent who can help us better. That really made a lasting impression on us. 
 
Eventually, we decided to buy in Cambridge. We visited several houses with Sandy, and she would always highlight the good (and the bad) aspects of the house. She quickly understood our needs and highlighted only those houses that were within our budget, and that fulfilled every one of our needs. There have been a couple of houses for which we wanted to extend an offer well above the asking price, but Sandy discouraged us from doing so, explaining why those houses were not worth the money. She could have easily walked away with closing the deal and moving on to the next client. Instead, she promised that she will help find us the right house for the right money. 
 
When she sent us the listing for the house that we now own, we declined to go see the house since we thought the house would sell for a price beyond our budget. Instead of pushing us, Sandy visited the house and called us explaining that this house could be the one for us. When we hesitated about the price, Sandy confidently said "Just go at asking - I think you'll get it". We were skeptical but decided to trust her and extended the offer. We couldn't believe it when our offer was accepted.
 
Sandy views the real estate business as a lot more than just a money transaction. From suggesting to write a personal letter with offers, to developing a rapport with the seller’s agent, and using her keen intuition on the right offer price for the house, Sandy is very thorough and knows what she is talking about. Even on days that we were discouraged that Cambridge was out of our reach, Sandy was enthusiastic and optimistic and visited several houses on our behalf. She made this home-buying process very smooth and stress-free for us. We will strongly encourage Sandy to anyone looking to buy or sell houses in the Boston area.

Amy - Sold her condo in Newton

I can only say that the experience was great, you handled everything, kept me out of all the nonsense.   
If anyone asked me to recommend a realtor, I would give your name in a heartbeat with this advice: "Listen to and take action on Sandy's advice, and you won't be sorry!"  
Thanks again!!

Denise - Sold her condo in Newton

Sandy is very diligent and fastidious (coming at least a half hour before an open house to make sure the place is presentable), scrupulously honest and very pleasant and easy to work with. I pulled out of a deal to buy a house and she was great about it. I wouldn't consider using another agent in this area for either buying or selling a home.
 

The MacDonalds - Sold their home in Newton

After 60 years in our home, it was time to move to a smaller place. We were so blessed to have Sandy Siciliano as our agent.  She guided us with her skill as an agent, keeping us informed every step of the way. She knew the market and was able to price the house with fairness for both the buyer and seller.  She scheduled the showings with our convenience in mind. She was completely knowledgeable about all the rules of selling a property and made sure all was done in a legal and honorable way.  No detail was overlooked.  She left nothing to chance!  For us at ages 86 and 91, it was a painless experience.  We would highly recommend Sandy Siciliano to anyone.

Buyers:

Heather - Renter turned Home Owner

Sandy was tireless in finding us a rental property that served us well and allowed us to thrive for 18 months. Well in advance of the lease ending, Sandy reached out and helped us find the house of our dreams. She knew the market incredibly well and knew that schools were important. She worked tirelessly showing us houses in multiple towns, always keeping in mind the needs of my family and the quirks of the market. I always knew clearly her pros and cons of each property, and knew that we would never be steered toward or allowed to buy anything less than our dream home. Thanks to her careful personal attention and insights, she was able to intuit what was important to me and my family to find us a beautiful house at a great value in a neighborhood better than we had ever imagined. And beyond that, she was instrumental in guiding me to line up the help I needed in regards to finding a stellar mortgage provider, lawyer and home inspector. No step was neglected. My only regret is that I no longer get to wander through houses with her.

Jillian - Bought her first home in Framingham

Buying a first home can be an overwhelming process. I am so pleased that I had Sandy by my side every step of the way. From our first meeting discussing my initial home desires, Sandy always kept my best interests in mind, and worked hard to present properties to me that I would love. She is well versed in many cities in and around Boston and the Metro West. Her ability to help me from town to town was very important and helpful since I was unsure of where I actually wanted to live. Sandy paid careful attention to the small details of what I liked and disliked in the houses we toured together, and when she found MY HOME, she had me at the first showing of the property before I even had a chance to look at the listing!
She came to know me and what I truly wanted and needed in a home. Even though the home-buying process can be stressful at times, Sandy was always there to pick up my calls, answer my never-ending list of questions, and just be a rockstar real estate agent.  I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in the process of buying my first home.

Kate - Bought her condo in Ashland

Thanks so much for your support, guidance and patience during my first home buying experience.  I am looking forward to making this Condo my home.  Thank you for everything you provided on this journey. 

Laura and Justin - Bought their home in Needham

Working with Sandy was an absolute pleasure in searching for our new home.  We were continuously impressed by the level of service and dedication provided.  Throughout the entire process her experience and professionalism helped us to land our dream home.  Her industry knowledge helped us to be informed and educated buyers.  Without reservation we would recommend Sandy as a Realtor in the Greater Boston area. 

Sarah and Jeff - Bought their condo in Newton

Sandy was more than a realtor for us: she was calm in the middle of several storms; encouragement when we got down after so much looking; and, most of all, the voice of reason at all times.  Her husband also makes great chocolate chip cookies.  We have recommended her to everyone we know since the day we closed (when she, quite literally, held our baby while we signed the documents for our new place in Newton). Sandy is just a great person with real warmth and integrity.  

The Carrolls - Bought their home in Newton

Thank you for your support through the many months of our home search.  We appreciated your help through the late night negotiations and the crazy ups and downs of our search.  Thank you for never giving up on us when we were ready to abandon the hunt.
