Testimonials

I give the highest possible recommendation for Lisa O'Rourke's work as the agent for both my recent home sale and purchase. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, and insightful, enabling her to efficiently focus my search so that I would only visit homes that were clearly aligned with  goals. She provided a trove of smart advice and guidance about how to present my prior home for sale. Throughout what proved to be a long and at times trying process, she was infinitely patient, gracious, and helped solved a host of thorny problems along the way. My experience with Lisa was A+ from beginning to end and I am delighted to provide a complete and ringing endorsement for her work.

Lisa is a true professional who knows Real Estate. She is extremely knowledgeable re: both sides of the transaction. Her organizational skills, breadth of contacts for associated professionals involved in the home buying process were invaluable. Most important was her ability to stay 2 steps ahead of all involved in an effort to meet deadlines and move the transaction toward a smooth closing. 5 stars!!!

Lisa did an incredible job from start to finish. She is extremely knowledgeable about the New Canaan area and gave us a wide variety of houses to look at as we became familiar with the options that the suburbs presented (we were moving from Brooklyn). When we found the house that we wanted to  buy, Lisa was our highly valued counsel in offer negotiations and the entire buying process. She was always checking in on us to see if there were any questions or issues that had arisen. As we had a six month delay between closing and move-in, Lisa was fantastic about staying close to us as we prepared for the big move. She gave us invaluable advice on settling into New Canaan and moving into a new house, among many other things. There is really nothing that Lisa won't do as she helps her clients move into her new home. As we made multiple trips back and forth from Brooklyn to New Canaan for the house, Lisa was always there well before us to open up the house for movers and inspectors. I can say confidently that we would not have been able to move with the ease that we did without Lisa's help. I recommend her without hesitation, and I can't imagine that there is a better real estate professional out there!

Amanda Ghory

Lisa's expert local real estate knowledge combined with her keen marketing skills led to the successful sale of our home. From pre-listing meetings to the closing, her advice and support was greatly appreciated and spot on. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone wanting to sell or purchase a home!

Caroleigh Evarts

Lisa was amazing to work with! We purchased a short-sale, which can be a long, stressful and unpredictable process...but Lisa was alongside us every step of the way. There would be month-long droughts where no activity was happening, but Lisa would check in consistently with both sides. The  perfect broker is a mix of advocate, expert and friend...and Lisa was all those and more! In fact, she's still helping us out - showing us the ropes of our new town, recommending service providers and more. She's been an invaluable resource!

Lex Faust

Lisa is amazing. She has incredible knowledge about the entire real estate purchasing process and also about homes in general. She'll take time to show you the guts of the house (furnace, water heater, etc.) and explain the good & the bad - which is especially helpful when you're first buying a  home! Not only does she give you a straightforward evaluation of a property, but also works really hard to find a home that's the right fit. She works tirelessly throughout the whole process to make sure it's as seamless as possible. She's always available if you have questions or concerns. And she's a great resource for things even after you've closed. I couldn't recommend Lisa more highly. This is the second time we've worked with her and have had an amazing experience both times.
