  • “"Lanse Robb was attentive to my needs as a seller & especially attentive to my property's complexities. He was always available to communicate & answer questions. Lanse had a contract on my property within 3 weeks of listing it after a previous listing of 6 months with few showings & little interest during the prime Summer selling season on the North Shore. The photography, virtual tour, global internet marketing efforts combined with his enthusiasm & professionalism made a defining difference. There were a number of unique challenges with this property but Lanse, with the diligence of his superb assistant Sophie, stayed the course. They were always mindful of my best interests down to the smallest detail. Today's high-end market is unpredictable but Lanse Robb does an incredible job managing the unknowns with talent & finesse. The goal was a successful closing & I am thankful that Lanse & Sophie were on my team!"”

It has been a long road with many twists and turns and we finally found the right buyer in a challenging market.

We sincerely appreciate all you have done to facilitate the sale." ”

We will gladly recommend LandVest and both of you to our friends and colleagues. Best regards,”
