Testimonials

Just would like to say it was a pleasure working with Ben and his team. He was professional, knowledgeable, and catered to our needs. As first time home buyers we were unsure how the process went but he broke it down for us and made the transaction extremely smooth. Hope to work with him in the future. Thanks!

Vinny is a true professional that answered every question with confidence and grace. I was never overwhelmed at any point of the buying process. He is very respectful and patient! If you're a first time home owner, then go to Vinny. If you're on the market for your second or third home, then go to VInny. Have a cavity that needs to be filled? Go to Vinny. Just go to Vinny for anything!

2020 wasn't an easy year for anyone, but trying to buy your forever home amid all the craziness going on + the real-estate market is in its lowest inventory it has been in years, definitely shoots the anxiety through the roof. That being said...if it wasn't for Vinny Scifo we would have had a MUCH more challenging/stressful experience and probably wouldn't have been able to buy our dream home. These guys are THE BEST in the field!! I can not recommend them enough! Given the shortage of houses in the market, we would send Vinny anything that would come up, and he never minded calling and checking and showing us every single one of them. He is so knowledgeable, but not only... What makes him one of the best in the field is his attitude, his honesty, and his perseverance. He is not just "doing business" - he becomes a friend and a supporter, someone you can trust without a doubt. We met his business partner Ben Panunzio as well, and he's awesome. I think these guys make a perfect partnership, and if you're in the market to buy or sell, take my advice and reach out to these guys. I promise you, you won't regret it!

Ben was amazing to work with from start to finish. His attention to detail played a pivotal role in closing the deal for my clients. Being a loan officer, it's important to work with a realtor who has a complete understanding of the whole home buying process. He had an answer for every question no matter what the situation. Looking forward to many more Ben!

Vinny helped us buy our first home and it was truly a pleasure to work with him from beginning to end. His constant attention to our home search was exactly what I needed as a first time buyer. His timely responses to all of my questions and knowledge of the entire home buying process made everything much less stressful than I'm sure it can sometimes be. Thanks for everything Vinny!

I can't recommend the services of Vinny Scifo and Lamacchia Realty enough. As a first time home buyer, I was heavily dependent on the knowledge, experience, and support of Vinny and the resources at his disposal.

I started out the process back in August of 2019 and quickly realized how challenging it would be. I began looking at multi-family investment properties and submitted several offers without luck. At some point during the process I pivoted and shifted my focus to single-family houses and apartments. Vinny was extraordinarily supportive during what was a very chaotic time.

Ultimately, I closed on a property in February of 2020. Vinny never missed a showing throughout the entire six month search. He sacrificed many late evenings and early mornings to be sure that I had support at various private and public showings.

I couldn't have gotten through this process without Vinny.

I bought my first home with Ben. It was by far the best thing I could have done when beginning the process. For months, Ben helped me search all over Massachusetts with a constant changing set of criteria to help me narrow in on the perfect home. He was always quick to respond and worked extremely hard to make himself available to go see properties with little notice. He is a very hard worker and really puts his clients first. The whole time I was working with him from start to closing I really felt that I was in safe hands. His partner Vinny is also an excellent resource. Overall I can't recommend Ben highly enough and will be working with him again in the future.

The team at Lamacchia Realty really knows how to make a difference in one's life. They are very knowledgeable and professional. I was lucky to have worked with Ben Panunzio who was wonderful and very supportive throughout the entire process. He kept me posted all the time and was sure to reply to all my emails in a timely fashion. I would definitively recommend working with this company!

I have recently purchased a condo with Lamacchia Realty and I couldn’t be happier with the entire process. I was under a very tight deadline to find a home and to close on it. Ben was amazing, he was able to get me in to see my new condo before the open house. I loved it and we immediately got my offer in and so the process begun. I was introduced to Shant and Paul who both were amazing as well. As we gathered all my information they all were so good with answering all my questions and believe me I had a lot of them haha. The entire team made my dream become a reality and I have Lindsay to thank for introducing me to my team at Lamacchia Realty! Thank you Lindsay, Ben, Shant & Paul, I’m forever grateful!

I had the pleasure to work with him for a few months and he proved himself to be very knowledgeable and professional. His patience in answering all questions as well as in waiting for us to find the perfect house was impressive. Again, I highly recommend him and his company

For a first time home buyer with little to no experience/ knowledge about real estate, I was glad to have chosen to work with Lamacchia and Ben Panunzio, specifically. I was impressed with the introduction and am now grateful for working with them simply because of how easy they made the process for me. Even during times where I was unsure or nervous, Ben was able to keep the communication open and trustworthy from the beginning. Also, I was happy with the time he put in and spent working with me since it was tough finding the perfect home for me. I never felt rushed or pressured. I have already recommended they’re services to close friends and family. Thanks Ben and the team at Lamacchia!

Vinny was amazing! He was always able to pick up our phone calls, answer every question we had as first time home buyers, was present for each major step and facilitated great communication between us and the sellers. We never felt out of the loop and always felt supported. He worked for us and made sure we were always getting the best deal. We love our new home!

We started working with Vinny after downsizing from our home. We weren’t exactly sure what to purchase or where we really wanted to live. Vinny worked with us as we explored all the possibilities from land and fixer uppers near the beach to new construction in the suburbs. Nothing deterred his optimism, professionalism, and enthusiasm. Eventually, we found a perfect home in a perfect location. When the negotiations became challenging, he was there guiding us through it all, and we couldn’t be happier with the results!

We started our search in May for a two-family home. We contacted Lamacchia Realty and they were super quick to respond. Being that we were first time home-buyers, the guy took the time to explain how things work in the real estate market, and said he'd set up a meeting with one of their agents (VINNY SCIFO) that very same day. We liked Vinny right away, BUT were not sure of how experienced he was... given his young age (under 30) haha. Well, boy...little did we know that Vinny would be our blessing! He's the most responsive realtor in the whole world - and I'm not exaggerating. He would respond to our endless questions and concerns 24/7. I'm telling you, that guy is the best agent out there! A little context here: After checking out lots and lots of properties, our offer for a two-family house was finally accepted...and you'd think that's all smooth sailing from there but NOOOOO! That's where the rigmarole started. Turned out there were too many complications between the sellers (2 sellers), and the worst part was their lawyer - a stubborn, litigation lawyer who had no clue of real-estate. Long story short, we went back and forth for 2 MONTHS...and if it wasn't for Vinny, we would have given up and backed out of the agreement 100 times. He kept us going, and "fighting" for us, keeping us informed every step of the way, texting us several times a day, touching base and giving us the latest updates on the progress. I have to mention that he was on vacation for 5 days, and EVEN THEN he kept reaching out to the sellers' attorney every day to make sure the process was not stalled and we were kept informed. We can not say enough good things about Vinny. He's a ROCK STAR!! He's professional, he's an amazing negotiator, super responsive, has his client's best interest at heart and will never give up on you. He'll go above and beyond just to make things happen. Even after we signed the P&S agreement (most of the realtors will then disappear as they don't really need to be involved in the rest of the process) but not Vinny...he even came with us to the closing just to be there for us. We can't say enough good things about him! We'd give him 10 stars out of 5 if we could. He's THE BEST and we highly recommend him to anyone who needs an agent THEY CAN TRUST!

As someone who is new to the housing market and real estate in general, Vinny did a great job in teaching me the "do's and don't's" of the industry as well as how to independently assess so that I can make educated decisions in the future. Vinny is patient and understands timeline and do not shy from providing honest opinions around properties. He is not looking for a quick sale,but is looking to support your vision and truly get you a home that you'll be proud of for years to come. I look forward to working with him in the future. I am excited to see Vinny excel in his real estate endeavors.

We recently sold our family home. Vinny was our agent. He was very personable and professional.He was always prepared. He held many open houses and kept us advised of interested buyers. He made our closing go off without a hitch. I would highly recommend Vinny Scifo.

My husband and I just bought our first home, and used Vinny Scifo from Lamacchia Realty as our buyers agent. I would highly recommend to anyone buying or selling. We were both completely new this entire process, and Vinny walked us through every single detail, beginning with our home search, and ending with closing. We were kept updated, and informed and everything was thoroughly explained to us. Vinny was responsive, patient, knowledgeable, honest, and I would absolutely use him again, buying or selling. Working with Vinny and Lamacchia for the purchase of our first home was a truly positive experience.

Vinny Scifo is an excellent agent who clearly takes great pride in helping his clients through the entire home buying process. My husband and I recently worked with him to buy our first home, a new construction townhouse in Lowell, MA. We were so impressed and grateful for his diligence. Vinny can always be counted on to quickly respond to any questions and provide advice at every stage in the process. He worked closely with all parties to ensure that our home was built on time and that our closing went smoothly. Thank you again Vinny for being such a great partner and helping us find our perfect first home! We are so appreciative for all of your hard work.

Bought a single family house in Lowell and Vinny Scifo was more than amazing through the whole process. Upfront about the whole process and helped to pin point our needs and was most concerned about our happiness. Started looking for houses the end of October 2017 and closed on December 29th, got to start the new year in our new house! Knowledgeable and responsive, Vinny did an outstanding job for us, with referrals for home inspections and attorneys, the process was seamless, couldn't have gone any better!

I worked with Vinny from Lammachia when selling and buying recently. He is extremely knowledgable about real estate and the current market. His knowledge of the market helped me land my dream home in a very competitive market and area. I was a hesitant buyer/seller and Vinny was helpful without being pushy. He gave me information, answered my questions, and gave advice/his opinion when I asked for it. I never felt like I was being pushed into anything but I also felt like I had guidance along the way. Vinny was extremely responsive - I often felt like I was his only client (although I know this wasn't true!). He got back to me very quickly, was always available when I needed something, and even helped me out with some related projects after closing. He truly went above and beyond! Having not done anything with real estate in about 8 years, I had many questions and concerns along the way; Vinny was extremely patient and explained every step. I would highly recommend Vinny and Lamacchia.
