High Praise for CL Waterfront Properties from a Very Satisfied Client – Thanks!

By

Boston's North End

We Specialize in Boston's North End And Waterfront

Our Clients’ References Are Our Best Advertising

We always love to hear from satisfied clients – this glowing reference came from a recent sale in the North End:

“4/17/2012 – We owned a high end condo in the North End with a very unique 2000 sq. ft. outdoor deck. Because it was so unique, Carmela and her staff did everything possible to make certain it sold. Their approach was always  professional, creative, timely, gracious and helpful.

They provided input on removing personal items, staging if need be, lighting, high quality photographers at the time of the day when the deck looked its best ( even if it meant 2 or 3 shootings), were candid in their assessment of value compared to the real estate market; answered and returned phone calls within minutes (even on weekends); made certian the unit was opened and closed properly before and after showings: sought advertising by having write-ups in the Wall Street Journal, Boston Home, Boston Globe; provided links on the web site to TV shows and magazines in which our home was featured; made suggestions on details that should or should not be addressed and generally were very very service oriented and customer oriented. I would use Carmela Laurella again in a heart beat.

– Karen L. Semmelman, Boston Ma”
