"Paula Hinckley and Carl Sack from the Lady of the Lake Team truly know how to satisfied their clients. My wife, Mary Lou, and I, had a terrific experience with them searching, and purchasing, a lake home in New Hampshire. During early 2008 we made a decision to move from the Finger Lakes of New York State, to the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire. In our early pursuit we found the "Lady of the Lakes" website, and began to assess and understand all of the lakes and information posted. This site is an enormous resource and makes looking for lake property enjoyable and easy. The site itself, and with regular phone calls with Paula and Carl, allowed us to narrow down and get to the location that was affordable and met our needs for scenery, skiing, sailing, fishing, etc. The site give you all you need, and Paula's and Carl's, easy, competent, manner made it a pleasurable experience. They are involved and available, but will not pester or push you through the process. Paula and Carl have a consultative approach and focus on finding as opposed to selling. That business model eliminates confusion and keeps the objective clear to find a good match with the client and the property. They know all of the lakes in New Hampshire. They recognized which lakes were too big or too small for our needs. They kept us in our price range and provided intuitive information about the lakes regarding; depth, cleanliness, overall size, and density on the shoreline. The information and support allowed Mary Lou and me to get a sense of the New Hampshire lake environment, when, as I mentioned, we had little knowledge before we contacted Lady of the Lake.
We have, and will in the future, recommend Paula and Carl to our friends and colleagues. They are true professionals and enjoy what they are doing.
We are now on a perfect lake, and in a great home, thanks to Lady of the Lakes." ~ Mike and Mary Lou
"We really enjoyed working with Paula. She helped us find the perfect home after only a few weeks because she new the market and the areas we were interested in very well. She was responsive and did a great job of following up on our questions." ~ Tom and Clair M.
"We just wanted to take a moment and say thanks for all the great work you guys did in helping us find our cabin in Alexandria NH. Trying to purchase a property out of state can be a tall order, but you and Carl made the process quite easy. Your constant updates of available listings and your flexibility in meeting with us at times that were convenient for US was fantastic. Your knowledge of the real estate market in that area (and the market in general) was excellent!
You responded to any of our inquiries, either by phone or email, very quickly and we felt we had a really a strong person "on our side" in this transaction.
We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to purchase properties in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire! And should we ever be ready to sell (though you found us the PERFECT log cabin and land) you will be the first person we contact to help us with the transaction." ~ Joan and Debbie
"I was very lucky to find Carl and Paula when I decided to buy a vacation home in NH. Their outstanding knowledge of the entire lake region, and their extreme professionalism were most important to me. In the beginning I did not know exactly what I wanted. Carl patiently showed me a wide range of properties that involved countless trips and lasted eight months long. He thoughtfully guided me throughout the whole process including negotiation and home inspection. Carl and Paula are the realty agent not only I can trust but also I really enjoyed working with." ~ Mingchun C.
" The Lady of the Lake Team is the simply the best agency we've ever dealt with. Nobody knows the lakes region better than Carl, and he was always willing to share his knowledge, providing insights you just can't get from any other source. He really took the time to understand what we were looking for and patiently worked with us until we found the right property. Working with Lady of the Lake made the process of finding our lake home a complete pleasure." ~ Mike & Joyce E.
"My wife and I had been trying to purchase a home in the lakes region for the past two years. Being out of state made the task harder and limited our availability for showings. Paula Hinckley of Lady of the Lake was the only realtor who was always there when needed. Our experience showed us some realtors would not return calls on Sunday, not Paula, if we called on Sunday morning, most times on short notice, we would have a showing that afternoon. Paula took the time to get to know us, our interests, and would arrange other showings that would interest us on the days we were coming. Paula has a frank honesty that we appreciate and she always went the extra step to make sure we had the information we needed to make an informed decision. If you are interested in purchasing a home, I would highly recommend Paula Hinckley of Lady of the Lake, we are glad we did." ~ Bruce and Pat
"My experience with The Lady of the Lake Team and Paula Hinckley was simply outstanding. Their Website was easy to use and allowed me to share specific interests on my search. I found the team at Lady of the Lake to be very professional, insightful, and committed. Paulas knowledge of the NH Lake region was top-notch, and allowed us to refine my search to water bodies that would meet my needs. I had limited "in-person" time for the search and the team at Lady of the Lake was always prepared, informed and flexible in scheduling and showing properties. I would HIGHLY recommend Lady of the Lake!" ~ Mark D.
"Carl helped us realize a life long dream of owning a house on a lake in NH. His knowledge of how to buy a house, and his attention to detail were instrumental in us completing our purchase. After we found the house we were looking for and had an offer accepted, Carl kept us appraised of everything that we needed to be on top of. And, when days before the original closing the seller decided they needed to do a short sale, Carl stuck with us for 2 more months as we waited for things to settle so that we could close. Carl was always available, in person, on the phone, and over email to discuss things, and if he did not know the answer he would let us know and then work to find the answer or help us to find the answer. We would highly recommend working with Carl if you are looking to buy property in NH." ~ Jay & Heather M.
"It was important to my wife and I to find a patient and caring real estate agent that was interested in finding the right place for us rather than just trying to make a quick sale. Carl Sack was not only a patient real estate agent but a good person who truly wants his clients to be happy. I highly recommend his services." ~ Todd and Irene
"I called a large real estate firm in the Lakes Region and explained that I was interested in purchasing some lake front property. What I got from the gentleman I spoke with was a long list of his accomplishments, he told me that 10% of the real estate agents closed 90% of the contracts. He told me how wonderful he was and he sent me an e-mail. I never heard from him again. The service was awful.
I then went to the web and looked at real estate sites, including yours. I found navigation easy and your site was fun to use. I called Paula and she sent me listings she thought would match my desires. We discussed some of the choices and she was very helpful in eliminating some properties that she knew would not be to my liking. Carl, your thoughtfulness, caring and assistance during the entire search, selection, and purchase was above and beyond what I expected and I do appreciate your kindness and council. Not all real estate brokers are the same; thank goodness. You are the best, and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend your company to family, friends, or anyone looking for an agent that truly works hard for their clients." ~ Bill P.
"Thanks to Lady of the Lake Team, we found our dream lakefront home. We are so grateful for Paula's patience as we visited home after home. She understood our "vision" of the perfect place and she worked until she located it for us. We are recommending Lady of the Lake to any of our friends who are considering a move north!" ~ Bob & Maryann R. Long Island, NY
"We wish to tell you how much we are enjoying our new condo at Beacon Street West in Laconia, NH. While we kind of had in mind what we wanted, we did not know how to get it or find it in the Lakes Region of NH. You SOLVED THAT PROBLEM FOR US. You listened to us and with the utmost of patience, took us to many places that met all of our needs. You immediately put our schedule to the top, put our apprehensions and fear at complete rest and in summary did an outstanding job for us. You service was forthright, honest and gave us all the information we needed. Your knowledge of the area - and in the Association where we bought - was up to date and so good, we bought the condo, sight unseen (as you will recall we are sure) across the hall from one you showed us. Your assurances as to the two condos exactness, floor plan, etc. were the deciding factor to go with the one across the hall. You judgment also paved the way for us as we got a better deal and property for our money. Thank you Carl for your immense and personal service and great help in getting the job done for us. We sincerely appreciate all of your hard work, effort and diligence on our behalf. We are happy to say we are reaping the benefits of your service. ~ Ken and Carolyn G. Melbourne Florida
We worked with Carl when we wanted to find a lakehouse so that we could get out of Boston on the weekends. We found him through his website which is a great resource for anyone looking to purchase in the NH lakes region. We set our preferences up on his site to narrow down the areas we were interested in, and we found several properties of interest right away. We also told Carl exactly what we were looking for - number of bedrooms and baths, but more importantly something with a yard, a beach, and a house that did not need lots of work. He lined up all the showings for us and on one Saturday morning we saw 8 properties, narrowed it down to two, and on Monday, put in our offer. Carl was great in helping us understand the facets of lake living that were new to us as city dwellers - septic tanks, point wells, wood burning stoves, monitor heating systems. Carl was with us through the whole process - working with the sellers, the inspections, the walk through, and the closing. He has also stayed in touch since, helping educate and guide us on generators, snow plowing, and firewood to keep us going through the winter. He truly was "one call and you are lakeside!" We really enjoyed working with Carl and based on our experience, we would recommend him to anyone else looking to enjoy the lakes of NH. ~ Patrick
