Lisa is outstanding! We relocated our family from NYC this summer and didn't know the Rye/Westchester area at all. Lisa spent hours educating us on neighborhoods and houses as well as local spots like restaurants, kids' activities, and everything we needed to start our life in Rye. Lisa was   incredibly responsive and when the right property became available was quick to help us make it happen right away. In addition to her skills during the rental search, Lisa has gone above and beyond to make our transition to the Rye community seamless, as she has treated us like neighbors right from the beginning by being so welcoming. I couldn't recommend Lisa enough!

Lisa and the Houlihan team were excellent. We both bought and sold our house with Lisa and our experience couldn’t have been better. There is no one more knowledgeable about the area and she went above and beyond to help us out when needed. Highly recommended!

Lisa is fantastic. We chose her to be our realtor because she is the best not only in Rye but also Westchester.  She is friendly and super connected.  She held our hand every step of the way and made us feel like we were her only clients. She always had good advice and in the end sold our home within our timeframe.

Lisa is the best in the business.  She is completely knowledgeable about the local markets and everything to do with getting a deal done, but she makes looking at houses a pleasure.  She is fun, real, honest and works super hard for you.  We've used Lisa both as sellers and buyers and I would recommend her to everyone I know!

Lisa is incredible!  She was very responsive, focused on everything that was important & was a great resource for us. We were new to the town and she took on a tour of pretty much every neighborhood and narrowed our search to make it efficient and more manageable... she went above and beyond.  As   an added benefit, you also get her husband to help too... who is just as awesome.  He was very knowledgeable with the inspection and even brought our kids donuts!  They just are both great people and treat you more like family than clients... very lucky to have met them.  I will always use Lisa in Rye without hesitation...!!
