  • “The North Shore's pre-eminent agent, highly recommended. A class act in every respect. He quickly understood what we were looking for in a house, he seemed to have the best access, and he knew the area better than any other agent we came across. In addition his recommendations for mortgage brokers, inspectors etc proved to be spot on.”
    — Buyer of single family home in Manchester, MA • Dec 31, 1969
  • “Lanse, listed and sold our home in South Hamilton for us. Upon his initial review of our property he knew exactly how to market our home to prospective buyers. His attention to detail was apparent right form the beginning. He knew which rooms to photograph and how to display them on the listing sheet and internet. Selling a home and moving is extremely stressful. Having Lanse Robb by our side removed one piece of that stress enabling us to have a smooth transition to our new home. ”
    — Seller in South Hamilton, MA • Dec 31, 1969
  • “Lanse Robb was attentive to my needs as a seller & especially attentive to my property's complexities. He was always available to communicate & answer questions. Lanse had a contract on my property within 3 weeks of listing it after a previous listing of 6 months with few showings & little interest during the prime Summer selling season on the North Shore. The photography, virtual tour, global Internet marketing efforts combined with his enthusiasm & professionalism made a defining difference . There were a number of unique challenges with this property but Lanse with the diligence of his superb assistant Sophie stayed the course. They were always mindful of my best interests down to the smallest detail. Today's high end market is unpredictable but Lanse Robb does an incredible job managing the unknowns with talent & finesse. The goal was a successful closing & I am thankful that Lanse & Sophie were on my team!”

  • “Lanse and his organization were very professional throughout. They went above and beyond especially at the final phase of closing when extra attention was required. They didn't quit until everything was complete. Would definitely use them again.”
    — Buyer of single family home in Gloucester, MA • Dec 31, 1969
  • “We were selling a horse property and Lanse is not a horseman himself, so I wonder if a more "networked" horse person might perhaps have connected to the grapevine of horse people moving in and out of the area. However, I don't know this for a fact, and I found him a tireless worker and a cheerful collaborator, and flawless in his mastery of the process.”
    — Seller in Wenham, MA • Dec 31, 1969
  • “Lanse knows his markets, and pricing. He and his team handled all the necessary details perfectly in making the sell of our home a smooth process. I highly recommend using Lanse and Landvest.”

  • “"On behalf of the entire family, thank you both and everyone else at LandVest for your persistence and professionalism in representing us over many years in the sale of Wyck. It has been a long road with many twists and turns and we finally found the right buyer in a challenging market. We are confident we would still be searching for the right stewards for Wyck, had we chosen to go with another North Shore real estate firm and had you not earned our trust. We sincerely appreciate all you have done to facilitate the sale." ”
    — The Reeve family -formerly of Manchester-by-the-Sea • Apr 17, 2011
  • “Lanse and Sophie, We wanted to thank you for pulling out all the stops to get our house sold in such a challenging market. We were very pleased with the attention to detail throughout the entire process, particularly in light of the fact that we were out of state and unable to oversee matters ourselves. We will gladly recommend LandVest and both of you to our friends and colleagues. Best regards,”
