I want to express my thanks to Lori and Betty for
the all the care they took with me and the countless nervous phone calls they
responded to. They are so good at their jobs that they knew I wanted something
different than I thought I was looking for and they found the perfect home for
me. They calmed my nerves through what could have been a traumatic event. I
actually had a lot of fun working with them and I feel that I have made two good
Carpenito Real Estate made the selling of my parents house effortless. Betty Marino was calming and reassuring when at times anxiety overtook about the prospective buyers for a house that needed a lot of work. Betty always notified me, in advance, whenever a showing was scheduled then reported the results afterwards. The Carpenito staff went above their role as realtors when they took care of the seller's closing requirements for me. Such as buying the proper smoke/carbon monoxide detectors and installing them, arranging the fire department inspection and final water/sewer readings and getting the tax bill adjusted by town hall. Carpenito even help arraigned personal belongings from the sold house to mine. Without their efficiency and understanding, the selling process of a beloved family home would have been so much more a difficult experience.
I would recommend Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate to anyone looking for a successful outcome and personal attention! During a difficult time of caring for my elderly parents, and cleaning out 70 years of memories in the home where they lived and where I grew up, I had the good fortune of meeting Linda. She is a professional, yet she was a shoulder, a laugh to stop the tears and she knows her stuff!! She sold the house in 5 days and got me through the rest of the process. Linda went above and beyond her role as a realtor for me and for that I have not only sold my parents' house for them, I have gained a good friend. Thank you Linda!
We had the opportunity to do business with Ms. Ann Marie Wilcox at Carpenito Real Estate this past year with the purchase of a condo to be a rental property. It should be noted that Ms. Wilcox handled and executed matters in a very professional manor as there were times when the seller's agent was not!! Her attitude was always positive and pleasant. Ms. Wilcox did however go the additional mile to ensure that we, as the buyers, were protected and entitled to what was to be provided as indicated on the purchase and sale. We would highly recommend Ms. Wilcox to others for future real estate transactions and will definitely plan on doing business again the near future with her.

We recently closed on our home and could not have been more ecstatic with our experience with Carpenito Real Estate. My husband, daughter and myself recently sold our condo, in hopes of upgrading to a larger home and Lori & Betty made our goal a success. Lori found us an amazing home in Boxford and we could not have been more satisfied. Lori and Betty greatly contributed to making the usually stressful process of buying a house, virtually stress free. Lori went above and beyond, through many negotiations, the tedious inspection process and even making numerous trips back and forth, assuring a smooth transaction for us. Both Lori and Betty were not only extremely productive and professional, but also compassionate in our life changing event. They even tailored the process around our hectic work schedules. Lori and Betty made this a very Merry Christmas for my family and we are incredibly thankful to Carpenito Real Estate for a fantastic close to 2012! Many Thanks!!
Kristin & Derrick Linnane
Dear Lori and Betty, Thank you is not adequate to express all that you did for us! You guided us, you supported us, you cared for us. It is traumatic to leave your family home after 32 years. You both empathized with us and make the transaction seem less! With Wendy's help, we know a young couple is starting out in a wonderful family home and it made it so much easier for us! We wish you all a Merry Christmas and all good things in the New Year! If there is anything we can do for you please, know you have the Allen family as friends.
Lori and Betty went above and beyond to get our first house under agreement (in only 3 short months) and quickly found us our new home. We can't sing their praises enough! They really go the extra mile and their knowledge and experience is what sets them apart from the rest. The whole team at Carpenito was great and would use them in the future without hesitation!
Tom and Erika Ramon
This was our first experience with Carpenito Real Estate. Our house sold in one week! This is mainly due to the fantastic work of both realtors Linda Surette and Mary Ann Dewling. What amazing people they are! Extremely professional, nice to work with for sure, and hard working! We absolutely plan to call them when we look for our next home in the very near future. Thank you so much.
Bob and Maureen Cardalisco
Mary Ann and Linda, just a note to thank you for all your help selling my home. You guys did a great job!! I would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone who wants to sell or buy a home. Thank you again and best of luck in the future.
Working with Ann Marie Wilcox was a wonderful experience. I had never bought or sold any property and was clueless. Ann Marie's knowledge is what made my sale and purchase possible. We ran into many road blocks but Ann Marie was determined and cleared the way for each and everyone we found. She always went the extra mile.
Janet C. Friend
I would definitely recommend Lisa Smallwood as your real estate agent. Lisa worked tirelessly to answer all my questions and address all my concerns. It was a long and challenging process to both sell my condominium and purchase my new home, and I'm glad Lisa was on my side.
Sincerely, Dave Stanlake
I would like to thank Linda Surette for all the help she provided on the recent sale and purchase of my home. Because of her exceptional experience and knowledge, responsiveness and contacts all the changes I required to make this move were accomplished. I highly recommend Carpenito Real Estate and Linda Surette to anyone seeking professional support in this area.
Sincerely, Claire Cafarelli
Lisa was fantastic!! Lisa Smallwood was very patient through our entire (sometimes difficult) process. She kept on top of everything and made sure things moved along as smooth as possible while also trying to maintain our sanity. Very Satisfied!!

I recently had a condo for sale with Carpenito Real Estate and I can honestly say what a great job they did. My agent was AnnMarie Wilcox and she went above and beyond for me. I highly recommend using them. I know I would again!
As a former part-time realtor, I can say that Wendy Carpenito and her office are one of the best real estate firms with whom I have worked. Wendy is the ultimate professional. She is highly knowledgeable, a great communicator and a superb negotiator. She balances her professional skills with a warm personality that allows her to work with very difficult people. It is without reservation that I would recommend Carpenito Real Estate.
Josephine DeVincenzi, ED.D.
As a first time home buyer with a limited budget, the idea of finding my perfect place was daunting. Carpenito Real Estate helped make that process a great experience. Wendy Carpenito immediately made me feel comfortable by truly listening to what I was looking for while respecting my financial limits. I found her to be organized and highly professional and she quickly found my ideal first home.! Once the match was made, she made sure the rest of the process stayed on schedule - letting me know what to expect each step of the way. I'm now settled in my first home and couldn't have asked for a better experience. I won't hesitate to work with Carpenito Real Estate in the future - but hopefully, not for a few years!
Linda is an absolute pleasure to work with. We had worked with Linda for many years buying, selling or just asking questions about property and she has always been honest, patient and has given us solid advice. Linda is a professional who is easy to connect with and has a great follow through. We highly recommend Linda to anyone who wants and honest, knowledgeable and dedicated realtor.
Ron & Sue Kolinsky
Working with Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate was wonderful. Our situation was difficult due to being a relocation but Linda was up for the challenge and made everything very easy for us. We cannot thank her enough. We would (and have) happily recomened Linda and Carpenito to family still living in the Saugus area. Thank you again Linda for all your help.
Debie Mirtle & Dan Radebaugh
Linda went all out to help me. It was a time of a great personal stress for me and she truly went way and beyond what was required of her to make sure my move from Nevada to Massachusetts, to my new condo went smoothly. If you need help with real estate, this lady is the one to call. Thank you Linda with all my heart.
We worked with Linda Surette at Carpenito Real Estate to sell our old house and purchase our new home. Linda and the Carpenito team are great to work with and very accommodating. Linda was always there to answer any questions at any time. Felt very good about the process and would highly recommend Carpenito and especially Linda Surette. In fact this is the second house we have bought and sold with Linda
Richard & Colleen
We had the pleasure of working with Linda Surette as our agent. We had heard many recommendations from satisfied customers and Carpenito Real Estate lived up to the expectation. We would recommend Linda Surette to potential buyers. Carpenito Real Estate made the home buying process smooth and enjoyable.
Lea St Germain & Brian Doherty
I just purchased my new home on March 20, 2012 through Carpenito's Saugus office and I cannot say enough about AnnMarie Wilcox. My purchase was a short sale and was quite difficult and time consuming, however AnnMarie Wilcox was fantastic. She guided me through the process. She absolutely went above and beyond the call of duty. I look forward to working with her again and will definitely recommend Carpenito Real Estate to everyone I know.
Lisa and I would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the entire team at Carpenito Real Estate, especially our realtors Lori Johnson and Betty Marino. Lisa and I are repeat customers having purchased our first home with the help and guidance of Lori and Betty back in 2005. We were so impressed by Lori and Betty, and the entire Carpenito organization that we knew without hesitation that they would be the ones to handle the sale of our first home and purchase our second larger home for our growing family. Lori and Betty did an absolutely fantastic job in our new home search and were always available to show us homes on short notice and to accommodate our busy schedule. When we found the home we wanted, Lori and Betty helped us every step of the way from extending the offer, to closing on our new home. Having already purchased our second home, we put our house on the market right before the Thanksgiving holiday, not an easy time to sell in an already difficult selling market. Carpenito Real Estate did an absolutely first rate job with the listings and we could not believe how great they made our home look in the photos they took for the listing! With Lori, Betty, and the Carpenito team's help, we had received an offer within a week of listing our home and we able to close on the sale of our first home within a month of purchasing our second...fantastic! We could not be happier with how everything went and we recommend Carpenito Real Estate (especially Lori & Betty!!) to everyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you again for a job well done!!
Sincerely, George and Lisa Haggis
As first time home buyers, Lisa Smallwood made the entire process understandable and comfortable. She was very prompt in answering every phone call, email or text with any and all questions we had. We are so happy to be in our first home and could not have done it without Lisa.
Liz Donoghue and James Venezia
As a first time home buyer, I was naturally nervous and cautious about the buying process. Linda Surette came highly recommended from family members who bought their house from her. Her professional attitude and easy going mind-set made me feel very comfortable. She was very patient and called me back quickly every time I had a question. She exceeded my expectations and I recommend choosing Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate when buying or selling your home. Thank you again for everything.
Wendy, thank you for sticking with me thru all the delays. You gave me hope even when I felt everything was lost. You and John were very helpful to me.
Thank you, Phyllis Costa
Linda Surette of Carpenito Real Estate was the perfect realtor for us. She helped us through a very long and sometimes discouraging process. Linda was always readily available, friendly and very informative. She kept us calm during some stressful moments with her positive attitude. I would recommend Linda to anyone looking for a house. My parents are settled now and extremely happy with the end result.
Thank you, Gail Pettenati
I would strongly recommend Linda Surette of Carpenito Real Estate to anyone listing or purchasing a property. Linda guided us through our real estate transaction with the perfect combination of professionalism and friendliness. She alleviated all our stress as they inevitably arise when selling and purchasing real estate. From our first meeting with Linda straight through to the passing on our beautiful condo...she was Wonderful!!
Doris and Bob Constantine
Buying a house is the most important purchase you will ever make. Having a veteran like Linda Surette was the best part of the whole process. I would give her the listing numbers of countless homes and she would have all important information for me in a couple of hours. Many times sooner than that. She understood what my financial range (comfort zone) was and what I wanted for my new home. She found the home that I would buy and said that I would buy it even before I had seen it. She was right again. Thank you very much for making this purchase as stress less as possible.
Sincerely, LM. Edmunds
I would like to thank the staff of Carpenito Real Estate and in particular Linda Surette for her expertise and knowledge of the local real estate market. We had multiple offers on the property within 3 days of the first listing. The whole procedure from listing to closing went very well as we left all the details to the experts at Carpenito Real Estate.
Thanks, Roy Coffin
Although the home buying/selling experience can be stressful, Erica and the entire Carpenito Real Estate team walked us through and kept our minds at ease. Not only did Erica sell our home in under one month, but we were able to purchase our home through Wendy Carpenito. In tandem, these agents put together our deal in a timely and professional fashion. Erica is not only a hard working respectful agent, her warm welcoming attitude made her delightful to work with. A+
Rob & Lisa Streeter
Linda Surette was the best person to deal with my mother-in-law. She has a tremendous amount of patience and was very attentive to her questions and needs. She is awesome.

Everyone at Carpenito Real Estate was very pleasant and helpful. It was Linda Surette that helped me sell my house. My home was in my family for over 90 years and not an easy sale due to a right of way on the property. After much hard work and persistance it sold. Linda was continuously showing it and worked her magic. I would recommend Linda and Carpenito Real Estate. Thank you so much.
I recently purchased my first home. Linda Surette my agent with Carpenito Real Estate, was vital with my purchase. Her experience and professional knowledge made up for my inexperience. I am very happy with my new condo and I was very pleased with Linda’s services. I now consider Linda a friend and when time comes to sell, Carpenito Real Estate will be my first call.
We had great success with Carpenito Real Estate and the purchase of our new home. We worked with Lisa Smallwood who was attentive and accommodating. Lisa walked us through the entire process as we were first time home buyers. Thank you again Lisa and Carpenito Real Estate!
Stephanie and Tam Le
We found Linda Surette, Maryann Dewling and the whole Carpenito Real Estate team very easy to work with. From the beginning step of photographing and advertising our property to showing the property and working with us through the closing, their experience and professionalism made the process easier.

I had a great experience with Carpenito Real Estate. My agent Linda Surette, helped make buying my first home a problem free, enjoyable experience.
In June of 2011 I decided to place the sale of my home with Carpenito Real Estate because I heard very favorable comments about them. After meeting with Mary Ann Dewling and Linda Surette, I knew that I had made the right choice. Their professionalism and real estate experience made my entire house selling process a smooth transaction and I was always able to reach both Mary Ann and Linda if I had any questions. There were so many details about home selling that I was not aware of. From the very beginning phase - the "Open Houses" to completion of the sale- the "Passing of Papers" I always knew, through their assistance, what had to be done and the time frame when everything had to be completed. I felt very confident that they were always working in my best interest. Mary Ann and Linda also helped me find a new home. I highly recommend Carpenito Real Estate to anyone who's looking to sell their home.
My experience with Carpenito Real Estate and Lisa Smallwood went above and beyond that of a realtor. As a first time homebuyer, I was very reluctant to act too quickly. Lisa "held my hand" the entire way. She was always giving me great advice and stayed with me for my search that lasted for two years. Her dedication to her clients is truly amazing. I would recommend Lisa and Carpenito to my friends and family.
Michael and I are extremely satisfied with our experience with Betty and Lori. They are true professionals and are wonderful at what they do. As they know, we have been on a house hunt for many years with very specific criteria. Betty and Lori always contacted us with any homes that fit the bill and also kept us updated online as well. Not only did the sale of our existing home could not have gone any better. We are all thankful for that. There was never any pressure on us. I consider them as friends and hope they stop by to see our new home. We are thrilled! Thank you so much!
Michael & Kerry Marchese
The entire transaction of the sale of our home was handled professionally. Much consideration of our needs regarding time of scheduling visits and showing of our home to the actual closing were handled in a manner both my husband and myself much appreciated. We would certainly recommend Carpenito Real Estate to people looking for a smooth sale of their property.
George & Sandra Amicone
Wendy's professionalism and expertise made all the difference. She knows the market and she knows the area better than anyone. I recommend Carpenito Real Estate whole heartedly.
Michael & Danielle Hartigan
Linda Surette and Mary Ann Dewling are not only the best in the business, they are terrific people. They recently sold my home quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend this powerful team, whether you are buying or selling a home
Joy E. McCauley
The process of selling a house is more work than you can ever imagine. Having a realtor who is patient, understanding and supportive of your family's wishes allows the seller piece of mind. It took a year to sell my house, 32 showings, and through the entire process Carpenito Real Estate, namely Erica Carpenito, was very professional and positive she would find the right buyer and that she did. I would highly recommend Carpenito Real Estate as your real estate company and Erica as your agent. There is no other agent better.
Sincerely, Debra Durning
I recently purchased my first condo with the help of Linda Surette of Carpenito Real Estate. I was told by others that purchasing a home is a very stressful situation but with Linda's help the process went smoothly. Linda was a professional in every aspect. She had a lot of info to offer and helped me focus my requirements and helped weed out a lot of unwanted properties. I would recommend Linda and Carpenito Real Estate to any family member without hesitation. Thank you Linda and thank you Carpenito Real Estate
As first time
home buyers we weren't sure what to expect and had a ton of questions,
Linda Surette was unbelievably helpful and always available. She made the home
buying process a breeze and within a month of seeing the house we were living
there. Everyone we crossed paths with at Carpenito was knowledgeable and
friendly. If we ever decide to move again I would absolutely go back to
Christine & Alex Renfrew
Working with Carpenito was a wonderful experience. As first time home buyers, the whole process was very new and scary to us. Our realtor, Lisa Smallwood, went above and beyond to find us the perfect home. She knew exactly what we liked and found what fit our style and advised us on homes that would be a waste of time. Lisa walked us through every step of the home buying process and made it an enjoyable experience. We would recommend Carpenito Real Estate to all our family and friends.
Lindsey Herlihy and Lenny Kelloway
All I have is great things to say about my experience with your realtors. Specifically Lori Johnson and Betty Marino. Two very lovely experienced ladies who helped me with their patience and expertise. I would highly recommend them. Buying a house is a very stressful step and they made it easier and made me feel confident of my choice. Their integrity surpasses any realtor in the area.
Wendy recently sold our townhouse in Saugus and assisted us in the purchase of our new home. She is such a professional broker and very knowledgeable of the real estate market. She pays close attention to every little detail and follows through right to the closing. We highly recommend Wendy if you're in need of a true real estate professional.
Debbie & Peter Epsimos
Linda is the Complete Professional Real Estate Person. She pays attention to the sellers needs. She does what it takes to get the job done. She works for a great office that represents the best of Saugus and the North Shore. Go with the best. Go with Linda
Joseph A. LeBlanc
My family has dealt with Carpenito Real Estate a few times and has been very impressed with Linda Surette. She displays outstanding professionalism and is highly knowledgeable with all aspects of the real estate market. Her personality draws people toward her and allows the accomplishment on even the most difficult sales. Carpenito Real Estate is like being with family...a trusting, relaxed, caring agency.
With real estate sales being in a real slump, Linda with her professional attitude, gave her all to making the sale of my property a reality. She made me feel real comfortable in handling all the sale negotiations and finally the passing of the papers. Carpenito is the best choice of realtors in my opinion. A true and happy client. Thanking you again,
Mr. Charlie Marino
We would like to thank Linda Surette for a superb job on selling my mom's house. Selling a family home after 40 plus years is a very difficult task and Linda made my mom feel relaxed through the whole process. She is very devoted to her clients and makes you feel like the only one, a true friend. She is a TOP NOTCH realtor and we would recommend her to everyone. Thank you again.
The Boardman Family
Lisa was wonderful to work with and sold our house in a timely manner.
We chose Lisa Smallwood because of a card she had mailed to us saying she had sold a house in the area and if we might be interested in selling. Well, the rest is history. Carpenito is well represented by Lisa. We found her to be very personable and thorough. She explained everything in detail and would call us to get our OK and set up a time before showing our house. She kept us informed and worked with us every step of the way. It was a smooth transaction because of her knowledge.
Rich & Jan Warbin
We'd like to thank Linda Surette of Carpenito Real Estate for her professionalism and fine attention to detail. Linda covers all the bases and never misses a beat. If you wish to sell your house or property then utilize Carpenito Real Estate.
Lisa Smallwood was very helpful and went out of her way to make sure we found the first home that was right for us! Thank you Lisa
Victor D'Angelo Jr. & Meghan Ward
I am more than happy that I chose Carpenito Real Estate when we decided to sell our current home, to buy a much bigger house to suit my growing family's needs! I worked with two Highly Exceptional Realtors named Lori Johnson and Betty Marino. Lori and Betty were always available to either answer questions or to show us houses and never made us wait. They made us feel as if we were their only clients. They were very understanding throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Carpenito Real Estate and especially Lori and Betty to all my family and friends as well as anyone looking to buy or sell. I can't thank them enough. Lori and Betty your the Best!! Thank you so very much!!
The Pinto Family
Carpenito Real Estate was a pleasure to work with. Lori and Betty were there no matter what day or time you called. I remember calling Lori on a Sunday about a home that had just gone on the market. She immediately called the agent and set up to see the house that day! Working in retail it's tough to set up times with such a crazy work schedule, but Carpenito made it easy! They were able to get the answers to any questions we had and made the process of searching for and buying a home enjoyable. Thank You!
Tricia McQueeney & Bryan Basler
My experience with Carpenito Real Estate was Super Wonderful, better then I could have ever imagined. They made buying a house stress free and for me that is priceless. Thank you.

We worked with Linda Surette 15 years ago when we purchased our 1st home in Lynn and it was a wonderful experience so naturally when we decided to sell we called Linda. Linda Surette is a kind, caring and professional and made us feel like we were her only clients even though we know how busy she is. Her honest approach made us feel at ease and we knew we were in good hands. Because of Linda's precise and accurate market analysis our house, it sold in three weeks. Linda guided us through the process and was present for every showing, inspection and meeting at a moments notice. Linda, we can't thank you enough for helping us buy our first home and 15 years later being there when we were able to purchase our dream home! You are one in a million!!!!
Lisa & Eric Anderson
recommend choosing Carpenito Real Estate if you plan on buying or selling a
home. Linda and Erica, we are grateful for your efforts during the selling
and buying process. You proved to us that you are indeed the best at what
you do. Thank you both!
Dave & Melissa Ferraro
I recently sold my home in a short period of time thanks to the suggestions and knowledge of Linda Surette. The transaction went smoothly and was quickly finalized to my satisfaction. I have worked with Linda in the past when selling several other properties with the same great results. Her attention to detail, knowledge and follow up makes for a rewarding experience.
Judith A. Griffin
We recently sold our home and bought one in another town. We contacted Linda Surette at Carpenito Real Estate because she was the selling agent when we bought our first home. Linda is friendly, very knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. Never once did Linda pressure us or misguide us. Linda was always available to answer any questions, no matter how small or silly. We appreciated all the time and energy Linda put into selling our home and helping us find our "dream home". We will recommend Linda to everyone who asks us about real estate dealings. Linda is the best!!
Thank you, Paul Wildman & Michelle
Thank you Erica and Carpenito Real Estate. As first time home buyers we were on a very steep learning curve with the usual commitment fears. We couldn't have picked a better realtor or company to help us. Erica understood our house preferences, showed us what we would like and helped us make the right choice for us. Her professionalism, knowledge and patience in answering our immediate questions was exemplary. Not only did she help us through a difficult closing but even after closing she helped us settle in our new home. We will definitely recommend Carpenito Real Estate, especially Erica to our friends.
Thank you, Maya Amarnath & Sharat Vasan
Carpenito Real Estate did an awesome job for us selling our home, specifically Lori Johnson and Betty Marino, they were on top of every little detail day, night and weekends. They made things happen! A couple of real pros. Thanks again. Job well done!
Fred & Linda Lynch
I truly enjoyed doing business with Carpenito Real Estate especially Linda Surette. I highly recommend Linda to everyone that is looking for a house. She was more informative than the attorney that did the closing. She went out of her way many times to help me. I don't know if I would have purchased this property if it wasn't for Linda. I will consider her a friend for life...and I will feel indebted to her for life.
Sincerely, Pamela Sullivan
Linda made selling the family home so easy. Her dedication with many open houses was greatly appreciated. I didn't have to worry about the little things since Linda handled everything with professionalism. I would not hesitate to use Carpenito Real Estate again should the needs arise.
Deborah J. Cronin
Erica, I want to let you know how much I appreciate your professional handling of the sale of my parents house. Your constant communication throughout this transaction was outstanding and appreciated. There were many details that we could not have handled on our own and we felt you were always acting in our best interests.
Thank you, Jeffrey Rusconi
My wife and I would like to thank Betty and Lori for the efforts and hard work that they put into selling our building in East Boston. They always kept us informed and updated us repeatedly. They went the extra mile by meeting inspectors when I couldn't get there and it made the process much smoother and easier. In a real tough market our building was sold really quick. Thank you again and I would definitely use them again.
Sincerely, Jim & Karen Kelble
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Carpenito Real Estate, in particular Linda Surette, for their assistance in selling our house.

Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate are professionals who seem to take a personal interest in their client's interest.
Nicholas & Bernadine Hartt
We really appreciate all the help we received from Lisa Smallwood in selling our house. I knew I could always get her on the phone, and not have to wait for a return call, whenever I had a question. Lisa was always willing to help out and we really were so grateful for that. Thank you again Lisa.

I had a wonderful experience working with Carpenito Real Estate in these turbulent times. I found Erica to be very professional, responsive, positive and reasonable. She game excellent advice and went beyond my expectations. As she said "Carpenito gets the job done." Erica thanks for all your help and advise, You were a rock during some very emotional times.

Linda Surette from Carpenito Real Estate has been my sister's realtor of choice since buying her first home. When it came time to sell my parent's home the choice was clear, Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate. We are extremely pleased with the service we received from Linda. She worked hard to make sure the house was priced correctly. As a result of her hard work, we had an acceptable offer within the first few days in the market. Linda worked to make sure everything went smoothly throughout the entire process. Linda went above and beyond all expectations and I can not recommend her and Carpenito Real Estate high enough. Linda Surette and Carpenito will be our first and only choice when it comes to real estate.
Chuck Perry & Susan Kilbride
Greg and I cannot say enough positive things about Linda Surette and our experience with Carpenito Real Estate. As we welcomed our first child last year, we quickly realized we needed a larger home and sought out Linda to sell our current property. A true example of professionalism and good humor, Linda was always available to us -- even promptly returning calls when out of town on vacation. It has been a long way to our final closing, but we made it and the reason we made it was Linda Surette. We had many false starts and stops for a variety of reasons, but Linda always maintained a calm focus that one day we would get there. We firmly believe that there was no other realtor who could have sold our home for us. We recommend Linda without reservation and look forward working with her as buyers as we begin our search for our new home. Thank you Linda!
Dayna & Greg D'Angelo
All I can say is, if I had more property that I had to be sold, I would without a doubt choose Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate. I was very pleased with the way everything was handled.

My experience with Carpenito Real Estate was extremely pleasant. My agent Linda Surette was knowledgeable and very professional. I realized more from the sale than expected.
Thanks, Tom Doyle
Linda Surette has given me a wonderful experience with purchasing my first home. With my husband being deployed to Iraq I created quite a challenge for Linda. We did not have much time to work with and dealing with the VA mortgage center was an ordeal in itself! Thanks to Linda's knowledge and commitment to us we were able to close in just a little over a month! She always picked up her phone and would make it a point to "get it done"! I cannot say enough positive things and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks Linda

Lori and Betty, Thanks for "A Quick and Easy Sale"
Hans & Laurie
Hi Lisa, I finally moved into my house and I am loving it. I want to thank you for helping me get there. You spent a lot of your time showing me houses over the last two years and never gave up on me. I learned a lot and appreciate everything you did for me. You were always very professional and very nice. I can't thank you enough. I will be sure to tell anyone looking to buy or sell a house to call Lisa Smallwood at Carpenito Real Estate.
Linda Surette is the real deal! Her commitment to meeting the needs of her clients shines through at every step of selling or purchasing a home. Thank you Linda for doing a great job for me.
Wendy, we just want to thank you again for all your hard work on the purchase of our new home. We love the house and the neighborhood and for the first time we finally feel this is not just a house but a home that we can enjoy for many years to come. Despite the poor economy there are some wonderful opportunities out there, but only if people like you are there to help those who need it. Thanks again for sticking by us and helping us find the home of our dreams. We really do feel that your experience, patience and sound advise were the difference in making this deal happen. We will be sure to recommend you to any and everyone who is considering buying or selling a home in this tough market. You guys are the best!!
John & Stephanie Novak
It was a trying time for me during the sale of my home but Doreen and Marcia were wonderful in explaining all the aspects of the paperwork connected with the transaction. John was great in getting a few things done also. One can see your office is expertly run. Thank you all for all you have done.
Mary G. Forbush
Selling our home after forty seven years of memories in a home we loved was a very stressful event. Wendy Carpenito came to our rescue. Her expertise and experience made the sale of our home a comfortable experience. We found that Carpenito Real Estate always cares about you and we will always be thankful for their marketing program.
Fred & Betty Quinlan
Wendy not only sold my house but also helped in the purchasing of my new home which I love. Wendy is the kind of person everyone should have the opportunity of meeting and working with when buying or selling a home. Selling and buying were not easy decisions for me and Wendy could sense this and went the extra mile to make each step as easy and comfortable as she could. She listened and her knowledge and understanding was so helpful. Dedication is #1 with Wendy and it shows through all she does. I am very grateful for the opportunity I had of doing business with her and her family.
My approval rating for Carpenito Real Estate was a satisfying one. Besides being attractive and having a lovely smile, Wendy and her staff were very professional. I believe they did what they could in the current market. If for any reason I was to sell my home, I wouldn't hesitate to use Carpenito Real Estate again.
Thanks, Jim Cenill
My experience with Carpenito Real Estate was excellent. Lori and Betty made the best out of a difficult market and with perseverance my house was sold, "yahoo"
Thanks, Al Aldrich
"Trust and Competency"...That's what you look for in anyone that will be caring for your needs, from your doctor, dentist, or lawyer. Our home is our life investment and so selling it required a person that is trustworthy and competent. We researched several real estate brokers and their proposals. In the end, we chose Wendy Carpenito. Our friends all agreed she was the "go-to" real estate agent in Saugus and we saw why. Wendy uses her research, experience and knowledge to arrive at a realistic fair market home value. She then uses her contacts and resources to find a compatible buyer. Wendy is very friendly and shares with you her strategies and past experiences as to what works and doesn't work in the process of selling your home. Wendy is a trustworthy and experienced professional. Thanks Wendy for being there for us.
Brian & Susan Wiseman
Wendy, you continue to amaze me! For over twenty years, I have depended on your outstanding expertise when purchasing and/or selling homes in Saugus. You have been instrumental in the purchase and/or sale of four homes for me. In this day of economic difficulty, I fully expected to be supporting two homes for a long time waiting for the sale of my old home. However within two weeks of my purchasing the new home, I was also closing on my former home, much to my elation! Thank you for the professional way you handled both the purchase of my new home and subsequent sale of my old home. You made the transition far less stressful by your patient, calm, understanding demeanor. I felt as if you and I could read each other without having to say a word. My experience with your office, Carpenito Real Estate, has always been first class. I happily recommend you to anyone in need of a realtor. I am grateful to have friends like you and John!
Sincerely, Ann DiMare
Carpenito Real Estate as a company is very professional and responsive to any requests or needs you may have. On a personal level, you as a seller or a buyer, are treated as an individual, as if your home is their only concern. My wife Cheri and I worked with Wendy directly to sell our home in Nov - Dec 07, a very tough time, but in a span of three weeks Wendy had atleast 20 showings and multiple offers closely around the asking price. This only happens because of a very educated market analysis, newspaper ads, and website listings. Even if you don't like the price the agent at Carpenito might come back with, it's done for a reason. You must trust the people who do this for a living. Do yourself and your sanity a favor, let Carpenito Real Estate sell your home or help purchase your dream.
Eric & Cheri Moores
One of the best decisions we made during the selling of our home we lived in for 40 years was securing Wendy Carpenito as our real estate agent. Wendy's professionalism and experience were key components in getting our house sold in less than 30 days. Wendy was consistently available personally to answer any questions we had, big or small. Her communication with us was unbelievable. Wendy explained every piece of paper work, slowly, in terms we were able to understand. Wendy was patient, informative and highly organized at all times. She was always caring and sensitive to our needs. This expertise was essential when it came to protecting our interests for important deadlines and making timely decisions. Wendy Carpenito was also instrumental in helping us secure another home. She was completely supportive, never steered us wrong and had a sense of humor throughout the selling, buying, and closing process. We are now happily living in a beautiful condominium complex. We owe Wendy Carpenito a huge debt of gratitude in making this dream possible.
Sincerely, Lucille & Richard Giso
My wife and I were looking to purchase a new home. We had heard good things about Carpenito Real Estate so I decided to stop in and introduce myself. Wendy Carpenito greeted me and right from the start she was helpful and informative. Wendy was readily available to show us any house that interested my wife and I. She was always punctual and very honest about what she felt were good and bad points of the property. Her high knowledge of real estate was always apparent to us. We decided on a house in Middleton that was for sale by owner. The guy was a nightmare to deal with and if it were not for Wendy's persistence, support and attention to detail, I would have never been able to close the deal. The most impressive thing to me was, although she was extremely busy at the time, she made me feel as if I were her only client. She was never too busy to take my call or do whatever needed to be done and get it done fast. Wendy is a "worker" she works for her clients and puts in long hard hours to be sure her clients are happy and her business a success. In the end, my wife and I are enjoying our dream home and we feel like we not only have a lifelong real estate agent but a good friend too!! Thanks Wendy!!!
When you get to the point in your life when you are ready to purchase a home, it can be a very frightening/exciting endeavor. However, when you can be led through the process with a comforting hand (or two), then it makes the journey all the more comforting. This is what my husband and I recently experienced as we were assisted by Lori Johnson and Betty Marino through the purchase of our new home. My husband and I were not on the market, per se, for a home: however, one seemed to find us. In July of 2008, we found the home of our dreams, which was being represented by Lori and Betty. We were thrilled to know that Lori and Betty were responsive in getting us in to view the home; they were responsive to all of our calls; and they were very educated in the unique nature of this property/history/etc. They worked at a moment's notice to assist us in any ways to facilitate our communication to the seller and they were pleasant and professional with each conversation. I can remember vividly the moment Lori called to inform us that or offer had been accepted by the seller. I think she was just as excited as my husband and I were. It was such a warm feeling to know that both Betty and Lori could share in our celebration! They were quick to put a "SOLD" sign up as the home, which my husband and I were eager to take pictures in front of (especially me being 9 months pregnant). It is a picture for the books for sure. And as if that was not enough-on the evening of the closing, we were welcomed into our new home with a beautiful gift basket, compliments of both Betty and Lori. I cannot tell you how much all of these personal touches meant to both my husband and I. I can't say that I will be in the market for a home ANY TIME SOON (I think we will be at our new home for the duration); however I will be sure to recommend Carpenito real Estate to friends and family for all of their real estate needs. You dream that buying a home will feel so special, but you hear so many horror stories where things go wrong. Thanks to Carpenito Real Estate, I cannot chime in any horror stories to purchasing our home. The experience was a DREAM COME TRUE for my husband and I.
Many Thanks, Mary and Dan Hubbard (with little Hubbard on the way...)
Erica was extremely dedicated to helping us purchase our first home. As first time home buyers we had many questions, concerns, and were not quite sure what we were looking for. Erica truly took her time to sit and talk with us and understand what we were looking for in a house, and showed us many houses that would fit our needs. Erica was also very helpful during the closing and communication with our mortgage broker. We are extremely grateful, and looking forward to many years in our new home. We highly recommend Erica Carpenito.
Tori & Sal
Linda and Lisa, Thank you so much for the professional way you handled the sale of my mother's home. As you know, it was quite emotional to be selling a home filled with such wonderful memories, but after my mother's passing there was really no choice. With so much to deal with, I can't thank you enough for giving me the assurance that this was one less thing to worry about. I knew this transaction was in good hands because of the peace of mind I felt each time I spoke with you. I was able to resume my busy life while you were on top of all details regarding the sale. I will not hesitate to recommend you. My experience with Carpenito Real Estate, particularly the two of you was nothing less than first class.
Thanks Again, Bill Jenkins
Linda and Lisa, You will never know how grateful we are for the way you handled the sale of our mom's home. Not only did you manage to sell the house despite the tough economy we face right now (which is a testament to your professional ability) but you were able to reduce the stress and anxiety Mom was feeling about the sale and her upcoming move. After being in her home for 40 years and raising 4 kids there, it was very emotional for her to finally admit it was time to downsize. You were so compassionate and patient with her, making sure she was ok with each step of the process. She is now settled into her new apartment and could not be happier. The stress of that big house is now gone and she is able to enjoy her golden years without financial worries. We are happy to recommend you to anyone we know that is in need of a realtor. You are both outstanding not only in your profession but also friendly, kind individuals.
Sincerely, The Family of Evelyn Surette
Wendy, we are enjoying every inch of our new home. Have not been this happy/excited in some time. I can't wait to get home! We actually had a big bash this past weekend, friends and family. Everyone was lovin it also. Everyone couldn't say enough about it. Thank you so very much for "changing" our lives. I will never forget you. If ever anyone I know needs a realtor, I will be giving your name.
With much gratitude, Trish and Dan
Linda, we want to thank you for being absolutly the best real estate agent ever. You were so helpful and considerate and agressive in showing the house so many times to so many buyers. We couldn't be any happier with all your in both buying 34 Biscayne to start with and helping us sell it again later. you are just tops and wonderful to work with.
Thank you for making my condo purchase a pure pleasure! Lori and Betty were helpful, friendly and honest about presenting all my options. Their efforts made my decisions so much easier.
Dr. Paul Consenza
Linda Surette couldn't have been more professional! Her attention to all the details of selling my home was limitless. I would recommend Linda to anyone who asks. I am confident Linda could go anywhere and sell homes. She is a true gem!
Susan M. Raiche
Lisa Smallwood was as pleasant as she was professional.
The service provided by Carpenito Real Estate was professional, courteous and very good. Linda Surette found us our dream home within three weeks and she helped us close on a house within two and a half weeks after making the offer. We were shown a wide variety of homes that met our general requirements and her assessment of the homes we looked at was honest and very beneficial.
Douglas & Gail Mauch
I recently purchased a condo with the help of Linda Surette. As a first time buyer, her expertise made the whole experience a pleasant rather than stressful one. She was always available for questions and was willing to show me multiple options. Her manner was professional but also friendly and sincere. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.
Sincerely, Deborah Howell
I had a great experience with Lori Johnson and Betty Marino from Carpenito Real Estate. They handled everything for me. Thanks again. Maybe someday I can buy dinner for both of you!
Thanks to Wendy, I'm very happy in my new home. She handled both the selling and buying of my homes. She was always courteous and professional. She was also there emotionally for me when I was stressing out and crazy. Wendy is very compassionate about her work and it shows through all the help she gave me. I have recommended Carpenito Real Estate to many family and friends. It's also nice to know that I made another friend.
Joan Marie Fiorentino
Having been assoicated with Lori and Betty from Carpenito Real Estate has been a very pleasant experience and I will continue to do business with them in the future
Linda was both extremely motivated and dedicated to help us find the perfect home. She made our first purchase enjoyable and comfortable. Linda went out of her way to accommodate us and touched us most importantly on a personal level. Professionally for us she was one of the most astute agents we spoke with and her personable attitude and sense of humor made us happy and confident in her to find us a home. We would recommend Linda and look forward to working with her in the future! A big thanks Linda!
Joe & Lisa
My wife and I bought our house in October of 2006. During that time we were also trying to finalize everything for our wedding in November of 2006. The last few weeks prior to signing for the house were extremely difficult, realizing all the paperwork and everything we needed to have for the signing date. Thankfully, Linda Surette and everyone at Carpenito Real Estate helped us every step of the way. I'm convinced if we did not have Linda and her co-workers help, we would still be looking for a house!!
We were so pleased with your company. You made what is usually an overwhelming experience very enjoyable. Thanks Erica!
Brendan & Jayne
We had a wonderful experience working with Carpenito Real Estate. Our agent Lisa Smallwood was a true professional, knowledgeable, aggressive and extremely helpful. Thank you and we would be happy to recommend our friends to Carpenito Real Estate.
Lucy & Joe Donoghue
Linda I want to thank you for your hard work and consistently being pleasant throughout the whole process of finding my family a great home to live in. Carpenito Real Estate should have more people like you working for them. From my family and I, thank you for the hard and dedicated work you did for us.
The Bompane Family
Linda Surette did a great job in selling our apartment house, in spite of all the trouble the Saugus Town Hall gave us. Linda is a hard worker, a go getter, and tries to get the most for your property. My husband and I were very pleased with her hard work, and will enjoy her apartment warming gift.
We have just sold our home in Derry N.H. and purchased a home through your office in Saugus MA. After dealing with two different Real Estate companies, I realized how professional, courteous and easy to deal with your agents Linda Surette and Ann Marie Wilcox are. With all the confusion of selling and buying at the same time and with all the hassle we put your agents through, they were always the most amazing people to work with. From this moment forward I will only refer friends and family to your office knowing how well you treat your customers. Thanks again to Linda and Ann Marie, you gals are the best!!!
Stephen & Brenda Bohannon
Linda Surette is, without a question, the most professional person I have done business with in the real estate market. This is our 3rd time calling on Linda in recent years. I wouldn't do business with anyone else! Thank you Linda for your professional wisdom, support & friendship over the years.
Sincerely, John & Christine Licato
It was a great experience working with Carpenito Real Estate. We highly recommend working with them for all your realty needs.
David & Sandra Swindle
Linda Surette made purchasing my new condo so easy. Having worked with Linda before, I knew she would provide the information before I asked the question. She is focused, detailed and working with her was "a piece of cake - angelfood, naturally!"
Judith A. Griffin
Dear Linda Surette, My family and I wanted to thank you both for all your hard work towards selling my aunt's house. Despite the challenges of the current Boston home selling market and an estate sale, the home sold quicker than we expected, and for the price we were striving for. Christine and Linda demonstrated an aggressive edge and genuine concern for the selling situation. Should the need arise, we will undoubtedly use them again. We would highly recommend them to anyone, and feel good about having had such a positive experience. Carpenito R.E. is lucky to have such talented agents. Thank you Kristine, Linda and Carpenito Real Estate.
We can not say enough kind words about Erica. She was wonderful through each step. Erica always worked around our families schedule and was able to secure a buyer in under 80 days. We were very pleased our home sold quickly because the process is frustrating. However Erica was always there with a smile working the Open Houses. She gave us honest and realistic answers. I would recommend Carpenito Real Estate - most especially Erica to many of our friends looking to sell. It was a positive experience!
Rich & Colleen Scarpaci.
Carpenito Real Estate is the best real estate company to work with, the people there are very professional and very friendly. Linda Surette and Lisa Peterson were the two realtors my husband and I worked with and we both agree that they are two of the nicest people we have met in a long time. Both Linda and Lisa went above and beyond what we expected of them and were also very honest with us from the beginning about selling our house, which was sold in a little over six weeks of coming on the market. They also helped us find a beautiful home and we are very happy. They are easy yo talk to and very understanding.
Linda Surette was our agent last month when we sold our house and bought a new one. I wanted to let you and your future customers know how happy we were with her service. Buying and selling with Linda Surette was a piece of cake. She helped us find the perfect house to buy but what was more impressive was that she sold our house in less than 24 hours. No joking!! We found a house that we loved but the sellers wouldn't accept our offer unless our house was under agreement. They gave us 48 hours to sell our house. Our house wasn't even on the market so we laughed and figured that there wasn't a chance this would work out. Linda suggested we give it a try. She was very honest and straightforward about her recommended asking price. She provided information about recent sales to support her recommendation. We took Linda's advice and kept our fingers crossed. The very next day she called me with an offer above our asking price!!! We were thrilled that we able to find a house, sell our house, and move all within 6 weeks. Linda was professional and courteous throughout. This was the second time we worked with her and I highly recommend her services.
Andrea & Wendell Stephens
My fiance and I were looking for our first house. We were so pleased with our agent Linda Surette. She helped us every step of the way. She sat with us for hours helping us find exactly what we wanted and she answered every question we had. She made the experience smooth and painless. Now we have a beautiful house and a new friend. Thank you Linda and Carpenito Real Estate.
Mark & Andrea
When my mother's house was to be sold, I decided to work with Carpenito Real Estate after reviewing their ratings, history and competency. I definitely was pleased with my agent Erica, who was knowledgeable and attentive to my many questions and needs. She returned all my calls in a timely manner and gave prudent advice. Erica was definitely a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and professionalism was shown throughout this experience. I feel very lucky to have found Carpenito Real Estate. I will be happy to recommend you and your company to anyone needing a realtor. Thanks for all your help.
Sincerely, Jeannette White.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Erica Carpenito while searching for our first home. Erica patiently stuck by us for close to 8 months until we found the perfect home. One of the qualities we loved about Erica was that she really listened to what we were looking for in a home and only showed us places that would suit us according to our needs. We appreciate her time, honesty and support and will highly recommend her to anyone we know that is in the market for a new home. Thank you!!!
Melissa & Matt Nazzaro.
We have been looking for over a year with different agencies and nothing. As soon as we contracted Carpenito and spoke with Linda Surette, our nervous were settled. Linda took us to see the two houses we called about - neither would fit our needs. Without any hesitation, within minutes, she took us to see another house, which ended up being our home. Thank You from two very happy customers.
Rino & Martha Maffoe
The services provided by you and your staff were very acceptable and reassuring. They reflected the interest and attention given to my situation. I appreciate the considerate manner that was exhibited when showing my home to those interested in seeing it. The realtor, Linda Surette, was professional and reassuring in her manner and made the selling of my home a comfortable and interesting experience. Thanks to all of you.
Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate were absolutely fabulous to work with. They made my first home buying experience simple and overall a wonderful experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Linda and Carpenito Real Estate in the future! Thank You!
I worked with Erica for a year and a half in trying to find a home. She was extremely patient and helpful and made this process very easy. When the time comes to upgrade homes, I will absolutely look to Carpenito Real Estate for their professional assistance.
To say that we are pleased with our experience with Linda Surette and Carpenito Real Estate would be an understatement. Linda Surette is an amazing realtor and we would highly recommend her without reserve to anyone who inquires. Not only did she manage to bring in an offer on our home under a tight (some would say unreasonable) deadline, in a slow market and over a holiday, she was able to navigate us through a difficult purchase and sale to final closing. Linda was always a calming presence keeping focus on the deal all the while maintaining good humor and true professionalism. In our opinion Linda went above and beyond to assist in the sale of our home. She made herself available to come out to our home to meet buyers, workmen, inspectors and anyone who needed access to our home when we could not be there. In short we highly recommend Carpenito Real Estate and Linda Surette. Should we be in the market to buy or sell a home again, we will surely turn to them again.
John & Ellen Frongillo
I would like to commend you on one of your agents, AnnMarie Wilcox. As difficult a task she had with the buyers on Illionis Ave., Somerville, AnnMarie was patient, kind and courteous. With her determination to close expeditiously, AnnMarie completed her task. We feel AnnMarie is very competent and will gladly recommend her to our friends and neighbors, as needed.
Lorriane & Mike Mercurio
After purchasing a home in July of 2006 I realized why Carpenito Real Estate has the bulk of listings in Saugus and surrounding communities. Their customer service, dedication, professionalism and tireless work ethic relating to your search for a home is superior and unparalleled in the area. Being a licensed real estate salesperson for over 20 years myself, I choose Carpenito Real Estate and realtor Lori Johnson as my team to navigate through the anxiety and confusion of choosing the perfect house because I realized they were committed and dedicated towards our achievement of this dream. Our only recommendation, of real estate professionals, is with Lori Johnson and Carpenito Real Estate.
Ann & Bob Waldron
I cannot say enough about Linda Surette and the Carpenito Real Estate people. The services were excellent not only in selling our existing home but also assisting us in finding a new place for me and my children. Linda always put me and my family first and cared about the changes that would occur for my seven year old son. When it comes to starting your life over after a divorce, Carpenito understands. Thank you Linda and Carpenito. I love my new home and the start of my new life.
Linda made the whole process fun and exciting. She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.
I thought I had the best service anybody could offer. I never realized how difficult it was to sell my property, but if it wasn't for my real estate agent, Linda Surette, who works for Carpenito Real Estate, it wouldn't have gone so well. Linda did a wonderful job. Her perseverance and patience was suburb. I would hire her again in a minute. I never believed there were so many legal aspects in selling properties and if it wasn't for my agent, Linda, my property would have been in limbo and would not have been sold. I thank everybody at Carpenito Real Estate for the wonderful job they did for me. I wish to keep my name anonymous for personal reasons. Thank You again.
It's been almost a year since we bought our house and it is the best decision we've made. Frank Guerra at Carpenito Real Estate was very pleasant, courteous, efficient and had answers to the many questions we had. We would recommend Frank to all our friends and relatives because he helped us through this big decision even when we were having doubts. Carpenito Real Estate all the way!!
Luiz & Delilah Minaya
My dealings with Carpenito R.E. have been a pleasure and a very friendly experience. My salesperson, Linda Surete, was most helpful and a person who truly cared and took the extra step in helping you through your transaction. When Linda said she would meet you, she would be there exactly on time and never made you feel pressured in any decisions you had to make. I have purchased many properties and found that Linda did her job most professionally and is an asset to Carpenito R. E. Thank You!!
Mr. & Mrs. Charles Marene
This was our 1st time buying a house and our agent, Linda Surette, made this a very smooth and pleasant experience! I would recommend Carpenito and especially Linda to anyone!! We love our new home here in Saugus!! I also want to thank Linda for the wonderful housewarming gifts!! Thank you again for everything
John & Deidre DiCicco
My experience with Carpenito Real Estate and Linda Surette were exceptional. She made sure that I was 100% happy with my new home, and it was a pleasure looking at perspective homes with her. She went the extra mile to make sure that I got the home I wanted and in a fast and appropriate manner. I would recommended Carpenito Real Estate to future buyers, friends and family. Thanks Again
The Parker Family
My experience with buying a home through Carpenito Real Estate was outstanding! My agents, Lori Johnson and Betty Marino delivered the most professional and personal attention, making what I had heard could be a stressful situation into a smooth, and problem-free experience. They helped with every facet of buying a home...from referring me to a mortgage lender to finding an insurance agent. I felt that I was truly in good hands. Lori and Betty are honest, knowledgeable, thorough, and extremely helpful! They truly go an extra mile for their clients -- from beginning to end and beyond! I also had the opportunity to meet some of the other agents with Carpenito. Everyone was so kind and congratulatory to me. When the day comes that I may sell my home and buy a new one, the ONLY Real Estate agency I would ever consider doing business with is Carpenito Real Estate! Thank you for being a part of making the dream of owning my own home become a reality. You can be sure that I will give you many referrals!! Most Sincerely
Linda Surette was a great help to us finding our home. We had been looking on our own, seeing one or two houses a weekend, then we got with Linda and she got us into properties left and right. Thanks for helping us find our home.
Chris & Melanie Kilburn
We would like to say how much we enjoyed working with the agents at Carpenito Real Estate, specifically Lori and Betty. They were knowledgeable, accommodating, and committed in helping us find the right house and in selling our home. We did hit many unforeseen bumps along the road but they remained committed and "hung" in with us to the end of the process. At times they went "above and beyond" the call of duty. We would recommend them to anyone.
Judy & Ed Martin
I truly had a great team working for me. Lori and Betty are very knowledgeable and accommodating. From start to finish, I felt secure and confident with their advice. Thank you so much. I would be happy to refer them to other prospective buyers and plan to do so.
We found Carpenito Real Estate to be very professional and accommodating in our search for a new home. Erica Carpenito was very accessible and promptly returned our phone messages and emails when we couldn't reach her directly. The house and neighborhood in the town of Saugus that we moved to, is as it was represented to us.
Andrew & Susan DeSantis.
A sincere thank you to the staff of Carpenito Real Estate for making the experience of selling our home as comfortable and stress free as possible. Especially, thank You Erica for maintaining a sense of humor to match ours and for listening to our preferences and acting on them whenever possible. You made the whole experience easy. Thanks again.
Bob & Pat Kelly.
Erica is the B-E-S-T, she always went the x-tra mile. She not only sold our house but we used her to buy as well. Thanks Erica for the Carpenito Experience. We refer you to everyone!
We had one of the most awful buyers and Erica was so wonderful, patient and supportive of us. We were ready to throw in the towel and we would have if not for Erica. Thank You!
Erica made us feel very comfortable and answered all our questions. Carpenito Real Estate was very easy to work with and we were at ease using a family business from town. Erica took all the headache away from the sale of the house. We will and have recommended Carpenito Real Estate to friends and family.
Mark & Courtney Callahan.
Thanks to Lori and Betty for finding us a beautiful house in Saugus. All of the Carpenito Real Estate staff receives an A +
Norma & Jim Puisys
Wendy, I have never met anyone as kind, helpful and energetic as you have been for taking the extra effort to make our house sell successfully. You were there guiding us through all the critical and important steps! Without hesitation. I would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced , caring realtor who gets things done! Thanks for taking such good care of us.
Ed, John & Nancy
We would like to recommend Carpenito Real Estate. Erica was a joy to work with, a wonderful agent. We gave Carpenito our listing during one of the worst winters in years but Erica remained positive and was able to find us a buyer. Thanks Again!
Joseph & Janet Clark.
Joseph & Janet Clark.
We were very pleased working with Erica Carpenito from Carpenito Real Estate. She helped us to find a new house and sell ours. There is one way to describe her "efficient, professional ... and very nice." We will be happy to recommend her to anybody.
Yahia & Romy Karabadji.
My sincere thank you to Carpenito Real Estate for a great experience with your organization. Thanks to the hard work of Lori Johnson & Betty Marino, we have just purchased our first home at 38 Elmwood Ave. in Saugus. I wish to tell you that Lori & Betty were not only very knowledgeable and professional with their work, I also found both to be extremely patient and helpful from start to finish. Lori & Betty made themselves available at all times for house showings to accommodate our busy schedules, showing us as many listings as we wanted, both weeknights after work and weekends. Never at any time did we feel rushed to make a decision or made to feel that we were taking too much of their time. In addition, we came to understand very quickly that this is very difficult time to purchase a home in the Boston area. The best value homes often have multiple offers and are purchased the day they are listed so it is very important to watch for new listings and act quickly to get your offer in without delay. In this regard, Lori & Betty were extremely diligent in watching for new listings, sending me the listings the day a new house hit the market. Lori & Betty were very successful in securing appointments for viewing listings the day a new home was up for sale. On one or more occasion, we were the first people to be shown a listing, thereby giving us the best possible chance to buy the best value homes. Thanks again to Lori & Betty for a job well done! I will be sure to send all my friends and family to them when they are looking to buy or sell their homes.
Sincerely, Gregory C. Haggis
Dear John, I am writing this thank you letter to Carpenito Real Estate and an extended thank you to my agent, Ann Marie Wilcox. Ann Marie was so very helpful to me with the sale of my home. Her professionalism, knowledge and support has not gone unnoticed. On many occasions Ann Marie went out of her way to help in any way she could, for that, I am deeply grateful! The services and support your office provides makes the entire process much easier to get through. Again, this experience was made for me, a pleasure. I thank your office and a special thank you to Ann Marie

Dear Wendy, I received the paperwork and check today and I wanted to thank you again for handling the sale of mom's house in such a super efficient way. You were wonderful to work with and you made things much less stressful for me by taking care of so many things that I no longer had to worry about. I especially liked your practice of always being present when the home was being shown. That is a terrific idea - I wish agents around here would do that. I know it took a lot of your time but you are the person who knows the most about the property and can best "sell" it! It sure paid off - you sold my mom's home in short order - during a very severe New England winter - and close to her asking price! Again, I want to thank you and your staff for all you did to help us. Your expertise and suggestions were most appreciated. I have thanked my dear friend many times for recommending you!
After meeting with 3 competing real estate offices, I felt very confident listing my home with Lori & Betty of Carpenito Real Estate. Lori & Betty kept at it week after week and they were always pleasant and always reassuring me that my home would sell. They were right, it did sell and it sold in the price range I wanted. I was not disappointed in anyway, working with Lori & Betty was a pleasurable experience. Thank You Lori, Betty & Carpenito Real Estate
Lori was both helpful and professional in marketing our home. She not only anticipated our needs and wants but also the customers. As a result, our home sold in two weeks for less than 5k less than our asking price! Lori priced the house fairly and accurately, brought us perspective buyers that were able to meet the requirements to purchase a house in that price range, and took care of all the details freeing us to continue our daily work/family schedules with almost no interruptions. Lori and Carpenito Real Estate truly know how to please both seller and buyer!!!
Carpenito Real Estate is the best in Saugus! John and Wendy gave us an honest and accurate assessment of what our house should sell for. It was a pleasure to work with John Carpenito who was very patient and under standing to our many questions and concerns, a true professional! Thank you John for making the sale of our first home an easy one!
Scott and JoAnne Ludwig
Wendy, Thank-You very much for all your hard work and dedication over the years, it has been a true pleasure. Your "professionalism and honesty" committed us to you 100%, it's something we couldn't find in other realtors. You were always very helpful and available whenever we needed you. You always went that extra mile for us and we greatly appreciated that. Thank you for all your patience over the past two years in dealing with us, searching then finding the "exact" home for our family. You and your family have become good friends to us and we hope to stay in touch. If we are ever in the market for a new home you'll be the first person we call. I will highly recommend you to anyone searching for his or her dream home. It's just amazing what you can do. Thank you again for everything and have a Happy New Year!
Butch and Maria Vetrano
Wendy -- words cannot express our gratitude. This process of selling/buying our house was a difficult and stressful experience. Your professionalism and kindness will always be appreciated and remembered. It was a pleasure to do business with Wendy and the Carpenito staff. Thanks Again!
Stacy and Scott Whittredge
I was pleased with my experience with Carpenito Real Estate. My agent Erica, sold my house in a timely manor and for the price in which I was asking. She made the process of selling a house as stress free as possible. Thanks Erica
Erica and Wendy gave us an honest assessment of what our house would sell for rather than promise us something we would not get. They gave us a realistic assessment and sold our house for 100% of what they assessed the value as. They have a vast knowledge of the local (Saugus) market, and did a great job. Erica especially handled the numerous questions we had and was always response and reassuring.
Eric & Kelly Wilshusen.
If you told us you were thinking of selling your house, we would say, give it to Carpenito Real Estate. We did, and couldn't be happier. They are the nicest people to do business with, very professional. Erica is a sweetheart!
Arthur & Hilda Elwell.
Erica, Thank You and your family for helping me to sell my house. This was a very difficult and overwhelming experience for me and I feel you did your best to help me through it. Erica, I especially appreciate your personal attention and genuine caring about me and your encouragement that eventually my house would be sold and that everything would be taken care of to complete the sale. I will contact you should I decide to buy a condo and will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Thank You again for all your help.
I purchased a condominium from one of your real estate
brokers. Frank Guerra was very
knowledgeable and went the extra mile to assist me with many questions I had
about purchasing a new home. I
would recommend Carpenito Real Estate to anyone interested in buying property.
Frank P. D’Amato
I just want to drop you a line to say how pleased I was with the performance of my agent Frank Guerra. Frank did an outstanding job negotiating the price of the property that I recently purchased. Frank answered all of my questions in a timely and gracious manner. With Frank's detailed explanation of every step of this real estate transaction, it eliminated the commonly experienced apprehension which is characteristic of this type of transaction. Having Frank as my agent, I had the confidence going into this transaction that everything was done in my best interest. I truly look forward to working with Frank in my next purchase or sale.
Dr. Michael C. Davekos
We had called more than one broker for a market evaluation on our home. The figure that Frank came up with was considerately higher than the other. We weren't sure if it might have been too high. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it was the appropriate asking price. We ended up selling our home for $13,000. more than the other agent wanted to list our house for.
Kevin & Joanna Quatieri
AnnMarie, Hello from Florida, just wanted to thank you for being so efficient and helpful. I especially appreciate your patience when it was most needed! You are a terrific lady and very professional to deal with all the odds and ends of long distance selling. Every detail was handled by you so personally, just as if we were family. Bravo for a great job. Please know we will refer you to those in Massachusetts that need a job done well and efficiently with lots of TLC.
Rae & Steve Chappie
Wendy, Tom and I just wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work selling our home. Things couldn't have worked out more perfectly for us and we are so grateful. It's easy to see why you are so successful, we wish you all the best. We will be sending people your way!! Thanks Again!!
Dawn & Tom Trainor
Working with Frank, making the largest purchase of my life put my mind at
complete ease. I would recommend
Carpenito to all my friends and family.
My property was sold within two weeks. I received fast and fair service and was very pleased with my choice of realtor. Thanks Erica!
Wendy, Just a note to say thanks for everything during our home buying/selling process. Erica really made a stressful process so much more manageable. She was truly a pleasure to work with, even though I was probably "high maintenance" at times. She was always available and pleasant no matter what time we called. We feel lucky that we found Carpenito and we will be sure to be in touch with you again if the need arises. Thanks again, I can see why you are number one in Saugus!!
Kristine & Robert Foye
Erica made my first real estate purchase a pleasant experience. Before contacting Erica, I called other realtors, only to be forwarded to voice mail. Calls went unreturned and it was impossible to make appointments. Erica was always available and helpful. She filled in all the blanks for me, answering every question - and I had a lot of questions as a first time home buyer. The whole transaction went quickly and smoothly, and I am very happy with my condo. I have already recommended Erica to a friend and I will recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who will be there when you need her.
Carpenito Real Estate is the leader in Saugus, and it shows. Their open house ads were great. Our house sold quickly and with no major hassles. Frank, our agent, was courteous, professional and extremely helpful throughout.
Thank You Carpenito Real Estate family. You guys made such a stressful time so smooth! Many thanks.
Bill & Carol Henderson
Buying a house was an overwhelming experience for my fiancé and myself. The staff at Carpenito Real Estate was comforting and understanding throughout the process. This is a family owned and operated business, and throughout the buying process we were a part of the family. We could not be happier with the service and support we received from Erica Carpenito and Carpenito Real Estate.
Carpenito Real Estate is the best! Wendy and her staff have given my husband Bill and I new faith in the real estate profession. Wendy was professional and always available to help with any questions. She made moving, buying and selling a wonderful experience. Thanks so much.
Bill & Maria Mills
Our agent, Marcia Tambeau, was wonderful. She was very responsive to getting back to us quickly with answers to our many questions during the "listing to closing" period. She had a wealth of knowledge about real estate that helped us tremendously and we were able to sell our home quickly, thanks in great part to her expertise.
Richard & Judith Johnson
My brother and I were glad to have made contact with Ann Marie Wilcox at the Carpenito office. Ann Marie's efforts made the process of purchasing our first home go very smoothly and right on schedule. Her professional and friendly manner were of great comfort during the buying process. I'd highly recommend Carpenito Real Estate.
Wendy Carpenito and her staff are truly the best. Not only are they your Real Estate Agent, they become your friends. She was always there for us, more than anyone will understand. We would not hesitate for a second to recommend any family or friends to her office. She is truly the greatest.
Louie and Marci Zavala
Wendy Carpenito is a true professional. She is knowledgeable and helpful. As a first-time home buyer, I was reassured by Wendy's competence. She helped to make purchasing my first home a comfortable experience.
Jon C. Bernard
We had a wonderful experience working with Carpenito Real Estate. Our agent, Frank Guerra, was a pleasure to work with. Frank really took the time to get to know us and really understand what we were looking for in our new home.
Frank was always available when we needed him and had great suggestions on how to make the best of our house searching time. We ended up with the house we wanted and are so happy with the way Carpenito Real Estate assisted us
Lisa & John Fletcher
When my husband and I began looking for our first house we dealt with many realtors. Quickly we learned that it was much easier to have one realtor looking for us. We chose to work with Wendy Carpenito because unlike many realtors, she never tried to pressure us into buying a house that we did not want or show us homes that did not suit our needs. Realtors must make it clear that they represent the seller, but we always felt that Wendy had our best interests in mind and was working for us. We would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
Michael & Lauren Bradbury
I have had the pleasure of working with Wendy, she is a true professional. Carpenito Real Estate is very knowledgeable, aggressive and extremely helpful.
Paul Mar Construction
If you are looking for quality and professionalism in a Realtor, look no further than Carpenito Real Estate. Their thoughtfulness and ability to communicate with all parties involved takes the worry out of even the largest of financial transactions.
Samuel F. Gagliardi
I have had the pleasure of working with Wendy as the real estate agent for our development. She has shown professionalism 100% of the time and is genuinely concerned for her clients' interests. She is a joy to work with and I recommend her highly.
My wife and I were very pleased with Carpenito Real Estate in the selling of our property.
Mr. & Mrs. Charlie Reed
Wendy is always a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't feel comfortable dealing with anyone else.
We have worked with Wendy Carpenito and her office both on a personal and professional level and have found her to be the most competent and more importantly most caring realtor we have ever met!
Michael & Alba Baccari
Wendy not only found us our dream house in Saugus, but she sold our house in Medford quick enough for our children to start the school year here. Her professionalism, knowledge and energy are truly incredible. We were so impressed with Wendy and her company we have and will continue to recommend to our friends and family Carpenito Real Estate.
Michael & Robyn Kelleher
My home buying experience with Wendy Carpenito was entirely positive. She was responsive to my questions and concerns and was at all times professional, courteous and extremely helpful. I really felt as if I had someone on my side throughout the whole process. I would not hesitate to recommend Wendy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.
Lee Ann Fama
I found Carpenito Real Estate very devoted when selling two of my properties. Wendy Carpenito kept me in touch with everything. I had no trouble contacting her when I had a question. She was able to solve a few problems before the sale. My sales were profitable thanks to Wendy.
Mrs. Angelo Avola
Wendy Carpenito handled both the selling of our property and the locating and purchasing of our new home here in Saugus. Her professionalism and kindness extended to us will always be appreciated and remembered. There was never a time when we felt uncomfortable in asking Wendy any questions. Her responses were always timely, accurate and patiently explained to us. We would not hesitate to contact Wendy in the future with any real estate questions or transactions. She is the best!
James & Lisa Carlson
We worked with Carpenito Real Estate for almost a year to find our home in Saugus. We knew we wanted to live in this town but not completely set on what type of house we wanted. Wendy was very helpful in helping us to determine what was best for us in the price range we could afford. She told us it was "her goal" to find us a home in Saugus and she was true to her word. We were so impressed with her professionalism and expertise, that we listed the house we presently had owned with her. Not only did Wendy sell our old home within 3 days of being listed, she found us a wonderful new home in Saugus! Thank you Wendy for all your help! When anyone asks us about buying a home, we always recommend Carpenito Real Estate.
Scott & Diane Trickett
My husband and I bought our first home with Carpenito Real Estate. When it was time to sell and buy a larger home again we used this wonderful company and Wendy. Our house was sold within two days of being on the market. Wendy was told what we wanted in a new home and she found it in only a week. Professionalism at it's best!
Dr. & Mrs. Paul Pantano
Carpenito Real Estate is very reliable for all your real estate needs. The staff is easy to contact. I purchased a property through them and I was very happy with their services. Even after the purchase, Carpenito Real Estate helped me with my real estate related questions, such as Homestead Act, attorney needs, etc. I would recommend Carpenito Real Estate to anyone looking for the best service.
This is not my first home dealing with real estate agents. But, I must say this was the most satisfying. Carpenito Real Estate followed through with all my requests right down to the smallest detail. I would recommend Carpenito Real Estate to anyone wanting the best service.
Carole Verace Schruth
I found Wendy to be very professional while at the same time evoking a sense of trust and well-being in allowing her to handle my needs. She has a tremendous knowledge of the real estate business and this along with her client satisfaction proves to be a winning combination for success.
Wendy made the process of selling our investment property a very quick, professional and hassle-free experience. We would always call her for all our real estate transactions.
Christine and Scott Brazis
When we hear of anyone interested in buying or selling a home, we always refer them to Wendy Carpenito - a true professional! She sold our two family home in Everett quickly and hassle free.
Michael and Annette Iascone
For a complete and thorough real estate transaction, look no further than Wendy Carpenito!! The very best!!
We have utilized Wendy's services both as a buyers and sellers. Mrs. Carpenito has brought together buyers and sellers with her experience, knowledge and professionalism as a Realtor and a person of integrity. She is an asset to the real estate industry.
The Ronan Family
Wendy is a true professional who completely understands the difficult process of home-buying. She made my experience as a first-time buyer less stressful and often enjoyable. Her positive attitude and patience are essential to her success.
Wendy was great! Available no matter when - you just called her up and she would be there no matter what your needs were. She had new listings for us on a daily basis. I would highly recommend her!
Jason and Christine Gori
In June of 1998 we made the decision to sell our investment property. Selling an occupied investment property has its own complexities. Wendy had an offer on the condo within 10 days of it being on the market. The sale of the condo went through smoothly. We were very happy with our experience with Wendy. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and dependable. In the future, if we were in the need of a Realtor, our first call would be to Wendy.
Michael & Lori DeSimone
Carpenito Real Estate, Inc. are the most personable people we've ever worked with. Wendy and her staff are the most concerning and considerate group that will run that extra five miles with you. They care about you and your worries, answer all your questions and are there for you 24-7. We would recommend Carpenito Real Estate as agents to our friends and family. We were able to put all our trust in their hands and before we knew it, our house was sold. Wendy was able to sell so we could buy and close on both our sale and purchase on the same day. It truly was a wonderful experience working with Carpenito Real Estate. Thanks so much for everything.
Steven and Marjorie Rabinovitz
After my father's death, I had to sell the home that had been in our family for three generations. What could have been an extremely stressful situation was made bearable by the kindness, courtesy, and professionalism of Carpenito Real Estate. I will always be grateful to Wendy for her help, understanding, and thoughtfulness.
