Lisa was really great with selling our house after it had been re-assigned to a flood plain. She was aggressive in her sales tactics without being annoying to potential buyers and Realtors. She is an awesome negotiator and can be tough when she needs to be while understanding our concerns and working with the buyer's Realtor. I would describe her as helpful, attentive, knowledgeable and tough. Great person to have in your corner when buying a house.

Lisa was extremely accommodating from the moment the process began. Lisa immediately went above and beyond anything I expected from the moment we contacted her. She was very patient, positive, and extremely informative throughout the purchasing process. Lisa was very detailed in explaining the situations, the process, and was always available to answer questions. I would recommend her to anyone that is is looking to purchase or sell a home.

We were very happy using Lisa Rittenhouse to help us find our new home. My husband and I are not from the area, so Lisa's extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods and infrastructure was great. She was always available to answer questions or set up showings. I would recommend her to anyone looking to find a home in central PA.

Helped me buy and sell homes
My wife and I used Lisa to purchase our house in 2011 and sell our house in 2013. She was an AMAZING person to deal with and she had all the answers. I couldn't have asked for a better more understanding realtor. Lisa made herself available whenever questions arose or help was needed. She put up with my nagging, my nervousness and my inexperience in buying and selling real estate. Whenever I needed help she was there. Finally, through our buying and selling, my wife developed a friendship with Lisa and she truly became a person we now remain in contact with. HANDS DOWN THE BEST REALTOR IN THE STATE COLLEGE AREA!

Lisa was amazing! She went above and beyond the expectations of a Real Estate Professional. She helped us get the best possible price for our home and she was awesome at negotiation. She is very knowledgeable with all aspects of purchasing a home, even with the bank. I would highly recommend her for the purchase of your home or business property.

Lisa is so professional and knowledgeable in every aspect of the real estate market. She was so helpful in helping us sell our home within just a few months after it had been on the market for over a year with another agency. She also patiently helped us negotiate to find a rent to own home and is helping us with the future purchasing logistics. She has remained in touch with us faithfully and is also a good friend. I would recommend her to anyone! Kind regards, Katie and Tom Rimmer

She is a great person. She knows her job. She devoted her time and effort to help me to buy a house. She provided me with all info related to this house pro/cons. I am really grateful for that. . Before i came to her i met other realstate agents, they just wanted to make money by all means. She is not, she is vey knowledgeable and professional.

Lisa is a great Realtor and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new house or sell one. She is very familiar with the area and surrounding areas and you can tell she knows what she is doing and is very experienced in her work. She is also very caring and will keep you up to date with all the need to know information and is always answering her phone and e-mails whenever you need to talk to her. She also has connections with many people who can help with whatever you need lenders, pest control, radon, construction, etc. There is not a bad thing I can say about this woman, she is very helpful and cares and that's important in this industry.

Lisa is the type of person anyone would be happy to work with. She is professional, but friendly. She listens to what you have to say and quickly assembles a group of listings that closely match even the most detailed requests. Lisa is a problem solver and has a way of making the whole process feel effortless.

Helped me buy home
Lisa acted as my Buyer's Agent to help me find a new home in State College. I contacted Lisa by phone from Seattle in early 2013 when I had been offered a job in State College. Before I accepted the offer, I wanted to know what it would cost my family to buy a home and live here. To be honest, I had never even heard of State College before, and was quite nervous about taking on a new job, in a new state. On that first phone call Lisa showed genuine concern and spent a really ridiculous amount of time with me?telling me about the area, making informed and helpful recommendations, and not once did I feel I was being ?sold? her services. In fact, she explicitly said that even if I were to buy a ?for sale by owner? home (one in which she would obviously receive no compensation) she was willing to help. I moved here in March 2013 in advance of my family?who followed on at the end of June. From a real estate agent?s perspective, I was probably the worst possible customer. I did not know the area; I did not know what I wanted; I did not know what was possible; and I had ever bought a house before in the United States (I am Canadian and have lived in Canada most of my life). Lisa showed me through I don?t know how many homes educating me on what was available at what price. After a while we found a place and made an offer. The bank I was dealing with had tremendous difficulty coping with the fact that I was from Canada?with different credit reporting processes and the like. It was very frustrating, difficult, and angst-ridden. Lisa demonstrated professionalism and patience throughout the process, and at one point (when we thought the deal was impossible) was happily willing to start over again with me from scratch. In the end, I ended up buying a lovely home and can put my hand on my heart and say that it would not have been possible in this competitive market without Lisa?s help. I almost feel guilty that I didn?t actually pay her a dime?agents are paid out of the seller?s money. But I am happy to recommend her. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
In November of 2010, My now fiance and I purchased a house with the help of Lisa. For months Lisa assisted us with locating the perfect house for the two of us and finally, after many ups and downs, we located our first home. From my experience with purchasing a house, I cannot say enough good about Lisa. Whenever I had any questions, whenever I had any concerns and whenever I needed to make decisions, Lisa was right there to walk me through the process. Never once did Lisa get tired of us and she continued to search the market to locate our home. Lisa was knowledgeable and professional and truly became a friend in the process of us buying our house. Although it was a job for Lisa and it is business, she truly put a personal touch on our house purchasing experience. Times are tough for everyone right now with the economy and concern is always present when buying a house. Lisa is there to get you the best deal possible and will not let you get screwed. Unfortunately the person I purchased my house from was unwilling to budge too much on the price of the house but Lisa did in fact try her best in the negotiation stage. When I sale my house in the future, I intend to go back to Lisa and ask for her help again. Whether you are new to the neighborhood or a veteran to the area, Lisa is the best person to help you locate your home. Less ... More

As a first time home buyer, Lisa really helped me to understand the process, the law, and my options. She kept me informed even if it was just to let me know on whos deck the paperwork was sitting. She was very approachable with any and all questions I had. I have decided than when I go to move in a few years, that I want Lisa as my agent.

Helped me buy and sell homes
We sold a home with Lisa and purchased a home with Lisa. These were not ordinary transactions. There were many challenges in both situations and Lisa pulled it off! In business it's rare when you find someone that is excellent in what they do and has an amazing personality. Lisa is that professional that has both those qualities. I used to be a Realtor so I know that business and my standards are very high. You will love her as soon as you meet her...like everyone does!
Response fromLisa Rittenhouse
Thanks for the recommendations and the purchase tough at times we made it and your home is perfect so glad I could help.
