Listed and sold a home
In 2012, we purchased a home with Yankee Realty and then again in 2015, we sold a home and were very satisfied with the services that were provided to us with both transactions. We were always updated and informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend Yankee Realty to my family and friends.

Helped me buy and sell homes
Wayne and Lisa helped us to both sell our first house and buy our forever home at the same time. They worked hard to make it work out and we were extremely pleased with the whole process. It wasn't easy to sell and buy at the same time, but they made it work out as seamlessly as it possible. In addition they are pleasant, easy to get in touch with throughout buying or selling, and never pushy. I would definitely recommend them to buy and/or sell!

Helped me buy home
We are a young couple and first time home buyers- our agent, Lisa, helped to teach us about the market, understand the different aspects of the choosing and buying process, and helped us figure out what we really needed and wanted in a home and neighborhood. Lisa went past 'above and beyond' and always made us feel like we were her most important clients. We were shopping on a budget like most people and she always made us feel like she could find us what we wanted in our price range. Her company has impressive connections which helped when we placed the offer on our dream home and got it for less than asking price. She was available via email and cell - she was understanding when we wanted to try to see numerous houses on the weekends or evenings because we worked 9-5 during the week. She always researched MLS numbers we were considering looking at and provided us with additional information. They are a real estate company who not only says that they focus on their clients... but actually do! She was an advocate at our inspection and a great support through the process. We forever, will recommend that Yankee is the way to go! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Lisa and Wayne assisted me through the entire process of purchasing my first home. I chose Yankee Realty because of the positive experiences my parents had had with them with purchasing and selling homes. It all started with a phone call to Wayne to begin my search for a home. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Since I was a first-time buyer, I had general questions about the process of buying that he was able to answer for me and make it easy to understand. Once we figured out what price range I felt comfortable with and what area I'd be interested in looking, he set up an appointment for me to meet with Lisa. Lisa was wonderful! She was timely and never late for a showing. She paid close attention to the details of what i was looking for in a house, which saved us time by not looking at houses I wasn't interested in. Given my limited price range, she understood that I wanted the best house I could get for my money and she did just that! We looked at many houses together and what I liked most about this experience was that I never felt pushed to make my decision one way or another. She offered her opinion when needed and was honest. I couldn't be happier with my new house. I will always recommend Yankee Realty to anyone I know buying or selling a house so that they may have the same pleasant experience as myself. It was truly the best customer service, which can't be said about many businesses. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
As first time homebuyers, we felt very comfortable with Lisa and the rest of Yankee Realty. They were very patient, showed us as many houses as we wanted to see, and took the time to thoroughly explain everything about the home buying process, from mortgage pre-approval, to the home inspection, to closing. In the end, they found us a house that wasn't even on the market yet, in a neighborhood that we hadn't even considered. We've been there 10 years now and don't ever want to move. However, if we do, we'd definitely use Yankee to buy AND sell. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Yankee realty kept us well informed as soon as a house that met our search criteria came on the market giving us the best chance at purchasing it when we found the right one. They took the extra time to explain how the real estate process works and offered sound advice during the sale. Their knowledge and experience made a great deal seem even better. We are very happy with the service provided.

Listed and sold a home
Listed my home on a Wednesday and was sold for over asking price by Friday. So easy to deal with. Recently (Jan 2011) we were looking for forclosure property online and we were contacted with in hours of our online inquiry. No pressure just information. Will use again. Also gave us great reference for home inspectors
