“As longtime owners of a 2-family house in Brookline, my husband and I rented out our downstairs unit for many years, and initially felt somewhat uncertain about putting it on the market. However, from the moment we met with Lora, we felt that we had made the right decision. This is our first and only home, so we had a lot of questions.  A patient listener, Lora answered all of them and walked us through every step of the pre-sale process.  Soon after signing on with Hammond, I left for China for a 4-month teaching exchange, and even with the 12-hour time difference, found Lora to be very responsive – truly working ‘after hours!’ 

“Lora  was always willing to greet potential buyers, show our unit, and provide them with accurate information.   During the time I was away, Lora communicated with my husband regularly to arrange various town inspections, as well as recommending painters and repairmen to get our unit ‘stage ready.’  Lora is a detail-oriented Realtor, with a seasoned instinct for what touches will show well.  Moreover, she worked very flexibly with a stager who is a friend of ours, and between them, they got the unit ready for a very successful open house. This was largely due to Lora’s knowledge of our Brookline neighborhood and school system.  

“Having lived here for more than 30 years, Lora was able to answer many questions of potential buyers, giving a convincing plug for our fabulous neighborhood and schools. This led to a quick sale, and we’ve been delighted with our new co-owners ever since.  If you are looking for a responsive, detail-oriented and communicative Realtor with first-hand knowledge of Brookline neighborhoods, we wholeheartedly recommend Lora Maurer.”
