"There is no other Boston Waterfront real estate team that goes to the same extent of very actively marketing their listings than the CL Waterfront team. I’ve always been happy with the extra effort and state of the art marketing programs that she and her team deploy on the sellers behalf. Strong effort and regular updates to the seller. I would personally not list on the waterfront with anyone else."
Stephen Kelliher, Managing Director - Morgan Stanley Wealth Management
"Basically, anyone who uses any real estate firm other than Carmela Laurella’s Waterfront Properties is not serving their own interests very well!
I have had Carmela market and sell two high-end Waterfront properties and each time she delivered beyond my wildest expectations, delivering record setting per square foot prices each time, with an air of professionalism unsurpassed. Carmela just delivers."
Bill and Lauren Coady
"Carmela Laurella clearly deserves her stellar reputation as the premier real estate agent on the Boston waterfront and the surrounding area. I bought a gorgeous waterfront condo with her help and, when I decided to move to Washington DC to join the Obama administration, she rented it for me quickly and profitably. When I decided to move to another area, Carmela then sold my condo for me at an excellent price in as difficult a market as we have seen in years. She is a delight to work with either from a seller's perspective or from a buyer's perspective. I can say that with confidence because I've been on both ends of that game. Carmela is simply the best."
Laurence H. Tribe, Burroughs Wharf
"Your high level of professionalism throughout this entire process was greatly appreciated. Together, you're quite a team!
Take my word, if you're looking for a new home along Boston's Waterfront, in my opinion, the only choice is Carmela's CL Waterfront Properties."
Bob Somerville, Union Wharf Resident
"I have had the past privilege of being represented by Carmela Laurella related to a Boston-area residential real estate transaction. I found Carmela to be extremely intelligent (as one might expect from a former investment banker) as well as especially resourceful, using her deep network to connect me with the highest quality professionals to help me navigate not only the transaction process but also a variety of essential post-transaction activities. Carmela is credible, honest and fair, and gives her clients a strong sense of being on their side.
While Carmela has developed a very strong reputation as a Boston waterfront expert, I would wholeheartedly recommend Carmela and her team for any Boston-area high-end residential real estate project. She is refined, polished and possesses the interpersonal skills appropriate for dealing with high-end clients. She has an obvious grasp of the requirements and concerns of potential buyers and sellers, and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again the next time I may be involved in a residential real estate transaction."
Stephen Cucchiaro, Burroughs Wharf
