Nancy's help was invaluable in the three transactions we worked on: buying, selling and renting a home! Despite difficult market conditions, Nancy's professionalism and ability to remain calm made everything go smoothly. I highly recommend her!!

Gina & Alex | Rye, NY

Nancy is a consummate professional. Her experience and honesty were invaluable to us during the process of selling our home. Nancy helped us find this home and later sell it successfully. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone on either end of the deal.

Andrew & Teresa | Rye Brook, NY

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Nancy - we are very glad to have had her support in finding our new home. Nancy is a true professional, knows the market extremely well and is also very responsive. Her guidance and advice was absolutely first class, and we could not recommend her more highly.

Aage & Yuka | Mamaroneck, NY

Nancy was a partner to us throughout the entire process. We felt like she was our advocate who had our best interest at heart. She helped us think through all of our options in detail and guided us through the negotiations with ease and patience! I have recommended Nancy to all of our family and friends and plan on definitely using her in the future!

Katherine & Rob | Harrison, NY

As a real estate agent (from another state), I really felt very comfortable working with Nancy. From the start, it was obvious that she has a complete command of the housing market. In addition, she was able to make showings happen, provide us with information etc., even when she was out of town. We are new to Westchester and she really educated us on the property-buying process here as well as coming with helpful suggestions for Summer Camps for the kids, service providers etc. I will certainly be recommending her to any friends and or past clients looking to move to the area.

Noelle & JP | Edgemont, NY

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Nancy. As first time home buyers we were very anxious about getting the right house at the right price within the best neighborhood. Nancy's years of experience, great attitude and strong negotiating skills helped us land a house that more than exceeded our expectations. Although we are not on the market right now we still stay in touch with Nancy and feel very comfortable recommending her to all our friends. Nancy was also willing to share her rolodex with us so we could find a few great people to help service our home.

Peter & Jill | Rye Brook, NY

Nancy made the process of buying our first home enjoyable and stress free. Nancy took the time to listen to our needs and never pressured us to buy anything. She displayed the utmost professionalism throughout the entire process. Anyone looking for a home would be lucky to work with her.

Doug & Jamie | Rye Brook, NY

I've bought and sold 20 homes over the last 25 years and Nancy is, by far, the best agent I have ever worked with. She was my agent when I purchased my last home and the agent who helped me sell it. I would recommend her unconditionally!!!

Mike S. | Rye, NY

Nancy was all that we could have hoped for in an agent. Not only was she incredibly responsive and knowledgeable on the area but she truly treated us as if we were a member of her own family. She provided candid feedback to help us understand what the best choices for us were in purchasing our first home. She also helped us to start thinking outside of the box of what we thought we initially wanted, getting us into a home/area that we had not considered but now is all that we ever wanted!

Brendan & Brittany | Harrison, NY

There are certain experiences in life that you feel compelled to share. My husband and I feel like the experience we had working with Nancy Lawton is one of those. From the minute I met her I knew that our entire family was in great hands. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for and then matched the appropriate neighborhoods and houses to meet our needs. I appreciated having her by my side - she cut my stress level down considerably. We will certainly come back to Nancy if we ever need/want to move and also refer potential clients to her in the future. 

Ed & Sue | Rye, NY

Nancy was patient and knowledgeable regarding our many issues and was always promptly available to us whenever we needed her. She was an invaluable resource to us not only in our search for a new home but in helping us to get acclimated to a completely new area. She provided a stead and calm voice of reason to our hectic, confusing and often frustrating relocation. Her advice and guidance was spot-on and she was willing to re-arrange her schedule at a moment's notice. 

KC & Eric | Harrison, NY

Nancy's knowledge and expertise about the area as well as her patience and perspective were invaluable during our search for a home. Her diligence and guidance set her apart from other brokers and we would be thrilled to recommend her to anyone.

Hiry & Mary Beth | Purchase, NY

We value Nancy's assistance in helping us find the perfect home for our family. We value having her as our realtor and look forward to working with her in the future.

Andreas & Corrina | West Harrison, NY

Thank you Nancy for all of your help in selling our home. We are very happy with the result and we would be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for or selling a home. Chris & Deidre I can't say enough about Nancy. She was understanding of our needs, courteous and helpful and very understanding of our needs. She was amazing and understood us from day 1. She was way more than our realtor; she was and will forever be a part of our family.

Dani & Dan | Rye Brook, NY

We met Nancy Lawton at the Houlihan Lawrence Rye office through a referral, and are so pleased we had the good fortune to work with her in our house hunting process. Nancy educated us on the various Westchester communities that we had an interest in, sharing important details and her own personal knowledge/experience. She was very thorough in identifying properties that fit our needs, viewing and screening for us and was quite objective in helping us assess whether a home was right for us. Committed to our success in finding a home, Nancy stayed in constant contact, was always available to us and flexible in making appointments to view properties during our search process. Not only is Nancy a top notch, trusted professional, she is personable and caring - a true pleasure to work with. With her guidance, we purchased a lovely home in November and gained a friend as well.

Margaret & Darren | White Plains, NY

We thought you were terrific! It was my pleasure to recommend you. I raved about you to her! Aside from the fact that we liked you personally, I really appreciated that you understood fully what we were looking for and only showed us things that were right on the mark.

Kim A. | Armonk, NY

 Nancy helped us find our dream home in Rye Brook! She was kind and thoughtful and very knowledgeable about the area. Most importantly, she never tried to push us into buying more of a home than we would have been comfortable with financially - she truly wanted to help us find the home that was right for us. Throughout the process it felt like we were not only getting to know our broker, but really getting to know our neighbor!

Joanne & Evan | Rye Brook, NY

What would we have done without Nancy? Seriously. My wife and I have bought/sold a number of homes and have never had a great experience so naturally we braced ourselves for more of the same as we set out to move our family from North Carolina to Rye. Boy were we wrong! Nancy could not have been more pleasant to work with. Moving up from NC to Rye/Westchester with our three young boys we needed someone with in depth knowledge of the market and the patience to work with us as we made a complicated transition. Having lived here for years Nancy had market knowledge in droves but it was really her demeanor, honesty, and sincere advice that set her apart. She's a natural. Nancy was able to help us navigate a challenging real estate market and ultimately find a beautiful home that's perfect for our family. We could not be more thankful and appreciative.

Craig & Erica | Rye, NY

Selling our house and re-locating was a big decision for us. Having worked with Nancy Lawton during this hectic and somewhat emotional time made our move much easier than expected. Nancy was there with us every step of the way and made the process almost effortless. I felt comfortable contacting her with even the simplest of questions. With Nancy's expertise and guidance we sold our house in less than three months. We thank Nancy and Houlihan Lawrence for their professionalism and for making our experience nothing less than spectacular. With sincere Gratitude!

Sliwak Family

Our family retained Nancy Lawton to sell our parent's home. The sale was emotionally difficult. Nancy was wonderful - she listened to us, gave sound and realistic advice and worked diligently on our behalf to achieve a positive outcome. Throughout the process, she was extremely professional, polished and pleasant. We would not hesitate to use her again!

Garrity Family | Rye, NY

Nancy is a fantastic realtor. We had very specific requirements for our house, and she took those requirements to heart; she showed us only houses that fulfilled these specifications. She even helped guide us toward houses that we would not have initially considered, which we really appreciated. Nancy went out of her way to find the perfect house for us -- and we love it! We highly recommend Nancy to any potential home buyers or sellers !

Elana & Geoff Bauer | Rye Brook, NY

Thank you for helping us in our search for our perfect house! We think the world of you and thank you so much for being so generous with your time and knowledge. You have definitely found your calling in life!

Ben & Lara | Irvington, NY

Thanks Nancy - you were great. I really appreciate all of your support and professionalism.

Elaine Strauss | Purchase, NY

Of all the choices I made, choosing you was the best one. At a time when I was so sad and distracted you were both a support and advocate. You kept me on task and focused.
Together I feel we got a fair price in a relatively quick time. Thank you for being the dog who never let the bone get away. I couldn't have done this without you - you kept me strong.

Georgette Osserman | Mamaroneck, NY

I would like to take this opportunity to sing the praises of the wonderful Nancy Lawton, who handled the recent listing and sale of my mother's house after her sudden death.Nancy was exceptionally professional throughout the process and also extremely kind and helpful to me during a very difficult time. She repeatedly went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything was being done quickly, efficiently, correctly, and in a manner best suited to my interests as her client. She is highly experienced and I felt very confident relying on her expertise. She is also extremely warm, friendly, and generous of spirit, so she was a pleasure to work with.I recommend her without reservation to anyone who might have the good fortune to work with her.

Best wishes,
Judith W. Levy, Port Chester, NY

Judith W.Levy - October 5, 2018

Truly earned by the Best Real Estate Broker in Westchester! Nancy both welcomed us to our new home and helped us say goodbye. She took the time to identify our needs and negotiated professionally throughout both processes. When time came to leave the area for our next location before the close was finalized, Nancy assumed the role of home owner and treated every detail like we were family - we are fortunate to have found Nancy and I would proudly recommend her to any and all prospective buyers/sellers in Westchester! Contact me if you need concrete examples as I would be honored to provide.
