Sells houses before the for sale sign is even up!!
Lillian sold our condo in a market that was saturated with them! She is the hardest working Realtor in Gloucester, the funniest, and now a life long friend.
Susan & Ryan Hensley
Lillian sold us our dream home! More importantly, she was able to quiet some nightmarish processes so we can have this dream! It's hard to sum her up, but I'll give it a whirl: helpful, generous, fun, knowledgeable, gregarious - will move mountains for you, give you the shirt off her back and always make you feel that you are the only she is working for.
Amy & Sheryl
My husband and I couldn't be happier. Lillian is a go getter! She is everything you would want from a Realtor and more! She made us feel like we were her only clients. Never did we feel ignored or left confused with unanswered questions. She goes out of her way which is hard to find these days. Not to mention we sold our condo and bought a new house in the matter of a month and a half. Not only did we find the best Realtor but we walked away with a friend as well! Thank you Lil for everything!
Erin & Bill Crosby
Hi Lillian, Tom and I are so happy we chose you as our Realtor to sell our home! I can't believe you sold my house with the first showing and with a back up deal.. Lillian, you are an amazing Realtor and friend! Tom and I will always recommend you to anyone that may be looking to buy or sell a home! You made it all such an easy process ... Thank you so much. Xoxoxo
Anna & Tom Canillas
Lillian, Lillian, Lillian, what can I say about our agent Lilliian!! How about she sold our house in less than 24 hours being on the market... Could you ask for anything more??? Our house was a very unique home,which I thought might take some time to sell. But with Lillian's positive attitude, all that nervous energy soon lessened. Thank you Lillian for presenting and advertising our home in such a way that it only took one showing and it was sold. Never dreamed that this could happen,but it did.
Very grateful clients, Jim and Gabe Dunne
"We used Lillian LoGrasso as our buyer's agent to purchase our home in Beverly. The home was listed as a short sale and we are very glad we used someone that is knowledgeable in short sale agreements. Lillian was always there to answer questions and to prompt the listing agent to get the deal moving with the sellers bank. Lillian, Thank you so much, we couldn't of done this without you. Sincerely, Sara & Alvin Whyte"
I want to take a moment to sincerely thank You - again - for all your help, hard work, perserverance and patience with the sale of my family's house. Thank You so much for not giving up on us. I know the sale of this house was a huge challenge, but your efforts made it all possible.
You truly must love your job, because you are great at it! Thank you for having a sincere interest in teh overall well being of my parents. I truly appreciate it. I wish you continued success, personally and professionally and may God continue to bless you with all the wonderful things in life. You deserve it!
With mucho appreciation,

Through-out my home buying process, Lillian was not only a friend, but a true real estate professional. My closing was not an easy one. I had to look a four or five different lenders before I found one that would do business with me. Lillian was there every step of the way. She fought tirelessly to advocate for my rights, answer any questions I had and alleviate my fears. It was her recommendation on a lender that brought me to close. She is very knowledgeable about the industry and has a database of hundreds of real estate professionals that are only a phone call away. In short, I had no fears with Lillian as my buyers agent. Her no nonsense attitude is a pleasure in this industry. She always returned my phone calls immediatley, and she never talked down to me. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying a house. I would say the money I spent on a Lillian LoGrasso as my Buyers Agent was one of the best values I could have invested in during this process. And I didn't even have to pay for it, she got the seller to pay for closing costs. That, and I can't wait to invite her my new house warming party. She stood buy me, and got me into the house I always wanted."

"Thank you again Lillian for everything. I appreciate your style and honesty. You are very good at what you do. Thank you also for the lovely gifts...beautiful!
Enjoy the rest of the summer. I will be in touch!"

"For anyone with intentions of buying or selling real estate in the Gloucester/Magnolia area we must tell you that the selling experience we had with Lillian LoGrasso as our agent was outstanding. In a very difficult real estate and credit climate we were able to sell our Magnolia property through Lillian and RE/MAX in short order. She is extremely knowledgeable of the local market and sensitive to both the seller and buyer's needs throughout the phases of the transaction. It was a great transaction and we are convinced that without Lillian's assistance and follow through the transaction may not have happened at all. We always felt she was with us throughout - from the listing to the closing. Thanks Lillian and RE/MAX!"
The Gagliano Family
In 2007 my husband and I began to search for a home on Cape Ann, but with a hitch: we are posted overseas with the US State Department. I found Lillian's website and immediately signed up and viewed the new listings daily. As we began to get serious about finding our new - and first - home, I contacted Lilliian via e-mail to see if she wouldn't mind showing some houses to my parents, who would vet them and give us their recommendations. Lillian was happy to comply! When we finally settled on a house - my husband and I had both flown up at separate times to check it out - Lillian was constantly poised at her keyboard to help guide us through the process of buying our first home. She was timely, professional, humorous, and extremely helpful. Thank you, Lillian! We love our new home in Gloucester.

It was a real pleasure working with Lillian. Kevin and I didn't know too much about Rockport and the surrounding area, but her knowledge of the market made things very easy and accessible. Her dedication and attention to detail is unparallel and her friendliness helped to make the entire experience enjoyable. She helped us realize our dreams of owning a part of Rockport.
The McCurry Family
Thank you, Lillian!
I am very happy with my new Magnolia home. I especially appreciate the way you allowed me to search the MLS listings on my own to come up with a list of properties to view. You were able to meet my schedule and show me all the homes In which I was interested in an efficient, professional, and knowledgeable way.
When I encountered bank/mortgage issues you were right there with suggestions and connections. That was invaluable. As your website says, You are there from the beginning of the process to the end. You kept on top of all the details. I felt well looked after!
I wish you a long and prosperous career in real estate for the most selfish of reasons -- I want you to be there the next time I need a Realtor!
Best, Kat Goddard
"Dear Lillian, We can't thank you enough for all the hard work you put in during our house buying experience. As bumpy as the process got sometimes, you were always professional and positive. We really enjoyed working with you and will tell anyone looking for a property just how wonderful you are.
Thanks again, Jane & Johns Harvey"
I found myself in the unfortunate position of having to sell my house in a difficult real estate climate, where supply greatly exceeded demand, and prices dropped daily. Lillian was with me every step of the way. She never gave up hope, and maintained a positive can-do attitude through out the time my house was on the market. She always had fresh ideas and an ability to think outside the box. If I was ever tempted to be discouraged, Lillian's positive thinking, energy, and motivation quickly turned that around. She assured me we would sell, and she meant it!
Most importantly, Lillian realized my limitations and needs as a seller. She respected and worked within my perimeters every step of the way.
Lillian was able to find me a buyer at a respectable price. She went above and beyond the call of duty right down to the wire. I would recommend Lillian to anyone looking to sell or buy a home ... in fact, I would say you were nuts not to go with Lillian LoGrasso!
Lillian, You rock!
Hi Lillian, I would just to thank you for the beautiful plant.
It shows your gratitude and support. Also
thanking you for the commitment you had
towards the search of our home. We love it! We would gladly like for you to drop by anytime.
The Nunez Family, Gloucester
I bought my dream house with the very able help of Lillian LoGrasso. I had seen the house on-line but had trouble connecting with the realtor to get in to see it.....until Lillian came to my rescue and showed it to me. It was love at first sight. Even though I had bought a number of houses in the past there are alot of steps in the process and Lillian was there all along the way making sure that I had everything in place and had my questions answered. I felt very secure knowing that she was keeping track of things and keeping the process moving along. The success of our purchase was due largely to Lillians guidance and timing.
Thanks so much Lillian, it was a great experience.
Not being familiar with this area I know I found the right Realtor in Lillian LoGrasso. She proved to have her hand on the pulse of the Cape Ann real estate market as she took control of my deal and became a helpful force in negotiations and was very reassuring throughout the whole buying process. I did my RE/MAX dance in 30 days. Go Lillian!!!!!
DON G., Newest Gloucester resident
I was led back to Lillian LoGrasso, via the listing agent of the home that was painted my favorite color, purple, that I have now purchased. I had seen Lillian?s website in my numerous searches for properties and MLS listings on the North Shore. I liked her website; it was easy to connect to links there, and I didn?t have to absolutely get a phone call or email for viewing it.
Lillian was instantly helpful, especially when there were no guarantees that I would even return for a visit. I had contacted, via email, two other agents in the area. One was ready to sell me one home I viewed only on the Internet, plus an adjoining piece of land before I even flew out there from the Midwest. The other wanted me pre-approved before discussing anything available, and she wasn?t pushing credit card sales. Since I really had never been in a place to buy property, nor lived in the area, I checked with MA friends before contacting Lillian so I wouldn?t have to stumble or try to avoid personal questions I wasn?t yet willing to answer. I think Lillian was pre-approved for me by a guardian angel.
Lillian immediately made me feel comfortable and welcomed. We laughed until our sides ached at each and every turn. She was professional, upfront, and honest. If Lillian wasn?t sure about something, she didn?t make up some dribble, but rather, found out the information, or admitted that it just wasn?t available. Truthful, very truthful, not like a car salesman I had once who told me the SUV I was sitting in was perfect for me, and I couldn?t see out the front window as the dashboard was too high. Lillian never tried to sell me something I didn?t really want. I did have the overwhelming feeling that I was looking in the right place with the right person.
Everything was moving along, including my connecting to a mortgage person who would walk me through the maze of financing, a lovely woman whom of course Lillian recommended. ?I wouldn?t have a link on my website to just any Bozo, out there.? Not Lillian, oh no, not, her. Good thing, because I was clueless to all the lingo, language, and details. Then we were struck with a serious family situation. Again Lillian was totally in tune, and just told me she?d be there when needed. She didn?t push; she just remained available. Perfect. I knew I had to keep going, if at all possible. And of course Lillian took up where we had left off. Now Spring was in full bloom and her schedule was getting packed. Still, she went beyond the call of duty and fulfilled every promise made, including negotiating with the listing agent, and representing me in a responsible manner.
If you have even read half of this testimony, you?ll just call Lillian! I believe she must have a great extended family which gives her the experience of dealing with the ever-present unexpected. No matter what happened, Lillian knew just what to say and do to resolve any misunderstanding or mishap. Go with Lillian LoGrasso. You?ll be glad you did. I AM!

Thank God I had Lillian as my realtor! My journey to sell my house in Gloucester was with a different realtor but when I hired Lillian my house it finally sold. She also helped me find a beautiful house in Winthrop near my family. Not only was she my realtor but turned into a great friend who helped me understand the whole process of selling and buying a house. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor she is a lot of fun to work with and she will sell your house and help you to find your dream home.
Jane and son Cameron Farrow
Lillian, You have been awesome through this whole process. You got us exactly what we wanted and when we wanted it. This house is finally ours, because you fought for us. We can really say that when you tell us you can do a closing in less than a month, you mean it! We want to thank you again for everything you did and said on our part to get us our new home that we plan to enjoy for a really long time.
Garry and Rosaria Encarnacion
1st time homeowners!
Thank you so much for all that you did in the sale of our property. We had tried to sell the two-family ourselves for nine months. Within two weeks of listing with you, we had a very solid offer.
You totally kept us informed of the progress in a very, very difficult transaction without my having to pick up the phone to call you for updates. This was a difficult deal in a difficult market.
In short, Lillian, you totally have our recommendation to anyone considering signing with a realtor. You're very professionally, aggressive, as well as responsible and diligent in your work and ethics.
Thanks again, Bruce and Linda Maki
We just want to "Thank You Again" for everything you did for us while selling the "family" house. Considering the loss of my mother and brother in less than a year and a half you were so understanding, patient and helpful!! Not only did you sell my house so quickly, less than 3 wks, but you also found me a beautiful apartment!! You definitely go far and beyond just a Realtor!! You are someone who not only cares about the property but takes into consideration what people may be going through in their lives!!
Thanks Again!! Don & Dodi
Once again, thank you so much for being there every step of the way to the sale of our Gloucester condo.
We had begun our search for a place at the ocean about six years ago and didn?t seem to have much direction until we met you. Your guidance via asking the right questions helped us quickly focus into what we wanted from this second home.
There was never a doubt in my mind who to call when five years after your help to buy our condo, we decided to sell. You went above and beyond your responsibilities as our real estate agent and became my eyes, ears, hands and confidante!
When the market became saturated you remained positive and innovative ? no matter your personal commitments ? you were always ready and willing to do what it takes to get the job done!
Your grateful friend,
Hi Lillian, We want to express our thanks to you for being successful with the sale of our condo and being so patient with helping us with the purchase of our new home. Words can't express how happy we are now that we are settled into this beautiful home. We want to let everyone know that you are an awesome realtor and you know how to get what people are looking for! We would recommend you to anyone that asked. Good luck on your future sales!!!
The Napoli family, Gloucester
Lillian LoGrasso is an awesome North Shore realtor!! Before we even met, Lillian's website was EXTREMELY helpful in getting a picture of the past and present market, as well as looking for info on specific places. She really knows the area and the market so well that we felt we could completely trust her judgement and advice. We had many questions during the process, and it was so great to have someone to turn to who was working for US (rather than THEM, ha!). She was really helpful in showing us places that exactly met our requirements, and when we found our place, she was a great help through the negotiation process and everything that followed.
Thanks for everything, Lillian!
Kip and Bernardo, Gloucester, MA
Lillian LoGrasso was instrumental in helping us achieve the dream of owning a home. We weren?t sure we were ready to buy, but we were tired of renting and wanted to start looking and we found Lillian. We never experienced any of the dreaded pressure that you hear about real estate agents putting on you to buy. Lillian told us that she wanted to find the perfect home for my husband and I, she likes picturing her clients in their new home with their pets and future children. She always asked us to be brutally honest about our opinions on each house we looked at. If we weren?t interested she never hesitated to move right on to the next property. We really felt like she had our best interest in mind.
Working with Lillian made the, potentially, difficult and painful process of finding and buying a home into a treat! She is so pleasant and easy to work with and she knew what we were looking for, and would not settle for less. After working with Lillian for a reasonably short period of time, we found a home that truly suited us, and in less than a month we were moving in. We love our new home! It?s in an area that we love, the local schools have a great reputation, we have the yard we wanted for the dog and a garden?..we couldn?t ask for more.
Truly, at the end of our journey with Lillian, we felt like we were dealing with a friend, not just a real estate agent. She is the best! We would recommend her highly to anyone who finds themselves in the market to buy a house. Even if you are ?just looking?, give her a call?you will be in good hands.

With so many condos to choose from, I figured that it may take a while to sell mine. Plenty were sitting on the market for months, and sellers were forced to drop the prices. After meeting with Lillian I felt that she had a good game plan, little did I know how great her plan really was. Within two weeks I had a full priced offer and signed P & S! The closing went so smoothly because Lillian handled all of the details. She is the most honest, hard working and professional broker I have ever had the pleasure of working with. A short time later she found me a new home and I love it. I truly look forward to more real estate transactions with Lillian!
Jacqui Sullivan, Beverly
"My husband and I were nervous about trying to find a new home because we were moving from out of state. We had no idea where to look and how to even start. Then we met Lillian. She held my hand through the whole process. We found a great condo for our family in a great town. Lillian was wonderful to deal with as I am a needy person and like to be in constant contact. She was always happy to hear from us and never made me feel like I was putting her out. I plan to use her as my Realtor in the future. She was wonderful and I am very glad we worked with her."
Katie & Jonathan Kanter, Ipswich
"Thank you for taking the time helping us find our 1st home. It was comforting knowing that we worked with a great, dedicated professional who was always understanding of our needs, informative and knowledgable in those areas in which we were not. Thank you for being you!"

"As a first time home buyer I was very fortunate to have had Lillian LoGrasso at my side. She walked me through the entire process, she was patient, she explained everything, and she was always available to me when I needed her. As I quickly learned there are many differing and sometimes conflicting factions involved in a real estate transaction-buyers, sellers, lenders, inspectors, lawyers, and the list goes on. As my buyer's agent, Lillian, looked out for me the whole way. I am convinced that you won't find a more capable, competent Realtor under the sun. Lillian LoGrasso is simply the best."
Mark D. Sutton, Haverhill
"Lillian LoGrasso has been our Real Estate agent for the past 5 years. When we first met her we were looking for a place in Gloucester. We both noticed from the smiles and positive attitude that Lillian has a love of being a Real Estate agent which could not be found from several other agents that we had interviewed before. Her profound knowledge of Cape Ann was astonishing! She was able to find us the perfect fit and we moved right in!
After living there for a few years it was time to look for a bigger home. The sales in Gloucester were topped off and into a competitive market, but Lillian made it happen for us and with her knowledge, positive effort, and enthusiasm, she soon got our property under agreement and Sold.
RE/MAX has the powerful marketing tools, but Lillian provided the energy to start and complete the sales transaction in the utmost professional and courteous manner. We highly recommend Lillian LoGrasso and will always consider her in any future Real Estate transactions. We wish her continuous success in the Real Estate business."
