Testimonials

Claire Civetta sold my house in two weeks.  Claire is an extremely knowledgeable, hard working, honest realtor who knows how to get the job done.  Claire is always available to answer questions and/or give sound advice. She is masterful at staging a house. Claire actually made selling my house a pleasant experience. I recommend her without reservation.

Claire helped my husband and I find our prefect home as we were looking to move from the city to the suburbs.  Claire was extraordinarily patient  with us, as we went back and forth on various houses and even with the decision to move or not.  From the onset, Claire looked out for us as though we were family and never once pushed us into making an offer on a house that didn't feel right to us.  Claire's knowledge of Westchester in addition to her candor, patience, trustworthiness, great sense of humor and positive  attitude made working with her so easy.  She truly goes above and beyond the call of duty and we are happy to nave made a friend in the process.  

Janelle Hanley

Claire was our broker when we purchased our house in Scarsdale.  She was highly professional and exceedingly knowledgeable about the market.  We were also impressed by the great efforts she made to understand our specific needs and to accommodate them.  Not only did she help us find our lovely home but she also provided valuable advice for us to start a suburban life.  Having recommended good local service people (inspector,contractor etc) , Claire remains a trustable source of information .  We would certainly recommend her if our friends are looking to buy a place in the area.

I worked with Claire three times now (on both sides of the deal) and I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She is honest and straightforward, incredibly patient and beyond hardworking.  In last year's snowy winter she would often show up at our house with sale and shovels to help with the snow removal on the stairs.  I don't know many agents who would do that.  Claire is a total professional and great at what she does, but perhaps more importantly she is a wonderful person.  I highly recommend her.  

Erin Jensen

 Claire represented my wife and me in connection with the purchase of our family's home in 2014.  She is thoughtful, accessible and trustworthy and she worked very hard for us at every step of the process.  I would recommend her and have recommended her to friends and colleagues who are looking to but in Westchester.  Not only did she help us to secure a home that we love, but also she was able to recommend an inspector, contractor and plumber all of whom have done very food work for us.  Even now, several months later, Claire and my family have kept in touch, and despite having no obligations to us at all, Claire continues to be an invaluable resource for our family as we settle into the neighborhood.  I would definitely work with Claire again in the future. 

Stafan Atkinson

Claire Civetta combines the highest level of professionalism and knowledge of real estate in Westchester with a warm and caring manner.  She was instrumental in helping us fine a new community  and home after 30 years in our former town.  Her expertise in guiding us through what was a major life change made it all possible.  Claire offered advice when needed, and was always knowledgeable in helping us navigate the marketing and sale of one house and purchase of another.  We relied on her throughout and could not have done it without her.  Our affection for Claire is one that will extend far beyond the "closing." 

Nancy Lyons

I've had the pleasure of working with Claire on four different occasions and each time she was a true professional.  She listens to the client's needs, manages their expectations and always has her clients best interest in mind.  Above all , she's a genuine and caring person, which is hard to find! A true star!

Claire Civetta did an outstanding job as a selling agent for my parents house in Scarsdale this fall.  She gave us an honest assessment of it's worth, used her contacts , know-how and experience to recommend the right amount of work to make it presentable in its best light, advised us well on the listing price in current market and then aggressively showed the house to attract as many potential buyers as possible.  The result exceeded our expectations:  after some initial interest at lower prices, we ended up with a mini bidding war and were able to get full asking price and signed contracts within 30 days of listing!  She also was extremely helpful navigating the Town's rules for selling older homes and coordinating  required inspections.   We would enthusiastically use her again if needed and recommend her highly.

Scarsdale Home

Claire Civetta did a fabulous job selling my father's house.  She perfectly coordinated input from my father, my brother and me as we jointly prepared and sold the house my parents owned for 50 years.  She brought expertise and experience whenever it was needed while always accommodating particular wishes or concerns from us.  She was instrumental in helping us well before putting the house  on the market and got the house sold within weeks of listing.  I would highly recommend Claire and Houlihan Lawrence to anyone looking for an excellent broker.
