Finding Lana was an incredible piece of good fortune! I was worried that any realtor I engaged would try to pressure me to just find someplace right away and buy it. I needn't have worried in Lana's case: We viewed some 17 or 18 townhouses before we found the one I loved and eventually purchased. Lana's practiced and perfectionistic eye for detail and knowledge of home construction proved invaluable. Her strong sense of integrity led her to point to signs that windows had leaked or the foundation was cracked in a townhouse that I might have regarded only in terms of attractive landscaping or features like walk-in closets. Lana patiently urged me to stop thinking about how I could make over a place to suit my taste/preferences and wait for the one that I wouldn't need to re-model in order to love. Sure enough, we stuck with it and found the perfect place. Lana is unfailingly kind and reliable. If she says she'll find an answer for you, she phones or emails within hours or no later than the next day. I'm a bit shy of strangers and dreaded all the sellers I would have to meet. But she figured this out about me pretty quickly and when a seller did insist upon remaining in the home when we visited, she always very smoothly handled any necessary chit-chat (covertly making her own keen observations/evaluations that she shared with me later) while I looked around. Lana's background as a paralegal also made her a sound resource when I had immediate questions--she didn't pretend to offer legal advice, but she could always translate legalese and explain legal considerations relative to real estate sale and purchase. I will recommend Lana without reservation to all of my friends and colleagues. She turned what I had expected to be the onerous task of finding and purchasing a new home into, if not a delightful task, certainly a pleasant one. I can't imagine a better realtor. I'm sure her picture is next to the term "extraordinary" in the dictionary of real estate. And no, she didn't pay me for this glowing review, and we're not related. I'm just very pleased to have enjoyed the services of a realtor so skilled at and happy in her profession.

Ms. Grimaldi was great. She did not pressure me to purchase a home. She did not constantly email me. She allowed me to take my time and and view the properties. I have purchased many homes in the past and to me Ms. Grimaldi was the best Realtor I have every worked with. She put the customer first and not the "Might Buck!" She always found time to speak to me if I had a question. If I sent her an email she responded within the next day. I would recommend her to everyone that I know. Thank you so much for your help and great work ethic.

Lana is the best! We worked with two other realtors before finding Lana and the difference in quality service was remarkable. She truly listens and works hard to help you find exactly what you are looking for. She always has a pleasant attitude and is extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process, which really helped us as first time home-buyers. She always had our interests in mind and made us feel secure that we wouldn’t be taken advantage by anyone throughout the process. Every professional recommendation she gave us was valuable. If you want the best realtor, work with Lana!

Lana is excellent at customer service and this combined with her knowledge of real estate was exactly what I needed for a search wth very specic requirements for an older family member. She was always patient, well informed and accomodating. While I know she had other clients, I always felt my search was her sole focus. Finally when it came to negotiations and closing she was always looking out for my interests. She was able to prevent or remove 95% of the frustration that can be part of a search.

You will be lucky to have her on your side.

We've been looking for the right single-family home for several months and have worked with other agents. I must say, Lana has been the most knowledgable, attentive, caring, patient and supportive of all. She's very punctual to showings, patient when we bring our crazy kids along, and very quick to respond to texts and emails. We're glad to have worked with her and highly recommend her.

Lana was an excellent agent for us. This was our first home, and Lana walked us through the whole process. After 9 months of searching, dozens of rejected offers, and two busted deals we finally got the house we wanted. She took us for showings about once a week for months. Lana was very patient with us and especially our 2-year-old. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Five stars are not enough to best describe Lana's professionalism and attentiveness to our needs as homebuyers. From the start, Lana has been on target and is very knowledgeable in her trade. Buying a home can be quite stressful and sometimes you need that one agent that will place you on track and makes you feel good about the purchase. We would definitely recommend Lana to any homebuyer or seller without hesitation. This has been such a wonderful homebuying experience a

I cannot thank Lana enough for how hard she worked for us throughout this long and arduous journey. There were many times that I thought all was lost but Lana was instrumental in getting things done and responses back from other parties. She went above and beyond in all aspects of this purchase. There is no other realtor that I would have liked to have for my first home purchase. She made sure all the forms needed for the extensions and the people involved were kept in the loop. Not only that, she hounded down the seller's attorney to make sure we closed on time and did not lose the home. She is the best. Anybody who is purchasing a home would be lucky to have her. As a realtor, she is the total package.

Our experience with Lana was wonderful. We were first-time home buyers and we previously lost a short sale home with a different realtor. When we met Lana, we knew right away the experience would be different. She was very attentive to our needs and made the time whenever we had the chance to go look at homes. We almost lost the home we selected once again by using a bank which our own attorney recommended. She came to our rescue once again and referred us to a mortgage specialist she knew which was great too. We were able to get our home, and she even referred us to the contractor who is helping with the repairs the home needed. She went above and beyond for us and you rarely find that nowadays. We are very impressed with her level of service and work. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the suburbs. She is exceptional!

Lana is great. I would not want to work with another realtor. She tells it as it is and is great with follow up. I do not have to guess when I'll hear back from her as she is very prompt and attentive.
