As first-time homebuyers we were anxious, but ended up having a very positive experience with Theresa’s help. When we first met with her and shared our "wish list”, she suggested we consider looking in Westford. We didn’t know much about the town, but within a few days, thanks to Theresa’s guidance and knowledge of the process, we made an offer on what is now our beloved new home in Westford.
Over the course of the next few weeks, she promptly responded to our many questions and concerns, getting us the answers we needed and offering reassurance, and we feel that she communicated effectively between all parties involved. She also "checked in” frequently to find out if there was anything we needed.
Along with being a consummate professional, Theresa is a very warm and kind person! When we got married a month before closing, she arranged for us to show our visiting family members our home-to-be, meeting us there for an hour on a Saturday. We continue to call our guest room "Theresa’s room” (since she was particularly fond of it).
We feel very lucky to have worked with her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home, especially first-time buyers.

It was a real pleasure to work with Theresa in selling our house and buying a new home. Thank you, Theresa for all your help, guidance and extra effort during the past few months. We are thrilled with the results!
Mark & Gayle, Lexington
We met Theresa at a Sunday open house. We were making the rounds of open houses and met a number of Realtors. Theresa was the only one that took the time to really talk to us and ascertain our goals and concerns about homeownership. She asked a number of questions about the towns in which we were interested, the type of home, etc. A few days later we received from her a bundle of information about those houses that met the criteria we specified, thus eliminating the need for us to wade through a lot of inappropriate listings.
When we did find the house we wanted to purchase, she helped us negotiate with the sellers (which was particularly tricky because the sellers had moved to Japan) until we arrived at a reasonal price.
Perhaps her biggest contribution to our successful move was in the sale of our house. Theresa gave us detailed instructions about what to do to spruce up the house to get it ready to sell. She was right, the house looked great with all of her suggestions - and it sold within two days. This would never have happened that quickly or smoothly without Theresa's help.
If we ever want to move again, we wouldn't even consider going through anyone but Theresa. She has written a new chapter in the book on high quality customer service.

I would like to thank Theresa for being a very special Realtor and friend when it came to selling my parents' home. It had not been updated for decades and there was a lot of work to be done.
Theresa showed me what really needed to be done, where to start, followed our progress, encouraged me when we ran into problems, listened (and changed my attitude!) when I got discouraged. She also made suggestions based on her long experience and good eye that would make the house more attractive to buyers. She was always available--if I didn't get her directly on her cell, she would call me back quickly.
One other thing she did, when we had a buyer, that I really appreciated was to give me a list of specific instructions on what had to be done when (contacting utilities [even giving me their phone numbers], getting fire department to come for an inspection, etc.); and also gave me another written list of exactly what I had to bring to the closing.
And the result of all her efforts (not counting her TLC of a nervous seller) was a fantastic, busy Open House and our buyer the very next morning!
"I worked with Theresa D'Antuono to sell my home in Lexington. She is great to work with, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is selling a home. She is very responsive, always returning e-mails and phone calls promptly. I was impressed by her thoroughness, professionalism, and "can do" attitude. She is comfortable with technology, and her dedication is impressive, as she worked tirelessly to make sure that everything moved smoothly with the sale of my home. She took on much of the burden of selling my home and thereby made the process of selling a home that much less stressful for me."
Thanks again for helping us find our wonderful home.
We just love it and are anxious to move in!
Lora & Jim, Bedford
Just a note to let you know that I miss seeing you.
I really enjoyed your great effort and so professional.
A lot to be proud of!
Once again, we are very, very happy with the job you did for us - both in buying and selling our houses.
You are very thorough and really cover all the bases. Receiving copies of our documents we will need for tax purposes, just shows how dedicated and helpful you are - even after the sale.
We will enthustastically recommend you!
Roberta & Rick, Lexington
You have been so competent and reliable!
Thank you for making a very smooth process in a difficult housing market.
You are the best!!!
A HUGE thank you for finding us a home and so much more!
Paul & Susan, Winchester
Experienced and professional...Theresa's straight forward presentation impressed us and inspired our immediate confidence. Her comprehensive market analysis was precise.
It was an uncomplicated and rewarding experience and we unquestionably recommend Theresa for her integrity and expertise.
Cheryl & Len, Lexington
From the moment we first met Theresa, it was very clear that this is someone we can trust completely. She took the time to understand our needs, and provided amazing insight, feedback and guidance throughout the process. She ended up finding us an amazing house we would have missed in our own searching, and was an incredible advocate through the offer and purchase process. We literally ended up with our dream house, which is something we had resigned not to be able to find. My wife and I have actually had a few conversations lately about how much we are going to miss seeing Theresa on a regular basis!
Bryan & Sharon, Lexington
Thank you very much. I know all of this is basic Realtor stuff that you have to do for everyone, but you have made this search, and the first time home buying process so much easier and more enjoyable for Liz and myself.
I think I speak for both of us when I say that you have made us feel very thankful that we got your number from Barbara.
Mike & Liz, Waltham
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Whew, what a relief!
Do you realize that we originally tried to sell our house four years ago before meeting you? It's been a saga with many lessons learned.
But you did it and now we're free of that burden.
Chris & Annie, Concord
My recent experience with Theresa was nothing short of wonderful. Theresa made the process seamless and painless. Not only is she a marvelous person, but a consummate professional. Theresa was always very caring, compassionate and patient. Her calm manner was very reassuring and was always available whenever I called her. Everyone should be as fortunate as I was to have this lovely lady working and totally committed on my behalf. The world needs many more Theresas! She is simply the best there is!
Theresa has been our real estate agent since 1996 and through her excellent efforts we have purchased two homes. Moving from California we knew nothing of the Boston area. She helped us to understand the area's unique communities and neighborhoods. She was a pillar of strength and understanding. Theresa's willingness to answer any question and discuss any issue no matter how trivial, led us once again through another satisfactory transaction. We found Theresa knowledgeable and honest!
Lynnae & Denis, Lexington
We had a very positive experience working with Theresa. I would call her a "gentlewoman" which she is in every sense of the word. Among her many attributes, Theresa is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and diligent. Because of Theresa's timely response when new homes came on the market, we managed to avoid a bidding war and purchased a home which we love. I have referred Theresa to others looking to buy homes, all of whom have agreed that she is a pleasure to work with.
Joyce & Sven, Lexington
Theresa has outstanding organizational and communication skills, as well as the most important virtue in real estate, "patience". Theresa is accommodating, professional and a pleasure to deal with.
Ken & Beth, Lexington
Theresa has handled both purchase and sales for us. In both of these transactions, our relationship was very positive. Theresa's ethics are at the highest levels. She did an excellent job of working with us to refine our search while our requirements changed. During the negotiation process, Theresa did a completely professional job of bringing both sides to a mutually agreeable contract.
Charles & Linda, Lexington
We bought our first house with Theresa. She helped us through every step, avoiding any potential problems. And she explained everything so clearly, we were hardly nervous, even at the signing.
Thanks to her e-mail service we knew every house on the market in our towns and our price range.
Even in this wild market, it helped us feel in control and gave us a real advantage.
Elizabeth & Wako, Arlington
As first time buyers, the entire process can be confusing with multiple options. Theresa made this process very easy for us by applying no pressure while helping us make good decisions.
We both felt completely comfortable dealing with Theresa in all aspects of purchasing our home.
Theresa is truly an asset to her profession and we can't thank her enough for making this a very pleasant process.
Gil & Kristin, Arlington
Working with Theresa as our Realtor was a wonderful experience. Her knowledge about Lexington and the housing market, her advice about process and priorities, and especially her willingness to always go out of her way (anytime - weekdays or weekends) to provide the best in customer service, made all the difference.
Joanne & Larry, Lexington
We worked with Theresa to buy our first home. Her email service was fantastic.
Theresa was knowledgeable, dependable, supportive, and an overall pleasure to work with. The entire process went incredibly smooth due to her diligence and thoroughness.
We would not hesitate to recommend Theresa, nor would we ever think of using anyone else in the future!
