Tia Lilly

Founder, Broker/Owner
Water & Luxury Property Specialist

Hello! If we have the opportunity to get to know each other, chances are you’ll want to join our ever expanding network of friends. Throughout my career, my focus has been on delivering the highest level of service and building enduring relationships based on trust, honesty, and mutual respect. In 2016, driven by referrals and repeat clients, and fueled by my desire to establish a team that embodies the same family-focused values and personalized client service that fueled my own success, I founded Property Cape Cod Real Estate.

Our brokerage model.

I’d like to introduce you to the family tree that is Property Cape Cod.  We are uniquely family, (three generations worth). I take great pride in the exceptional team of professionals I have assembled, who offer a powerful blend of experience, knowledge, and expertise.

At Property Cape Cod, we’re committed to being truly local, with an unparalleled understanding of the Cape Cod real estate market and a network of local connections. 

At Property Cape Cod, we treat our clients like close friends, and our measure of success is not based on dollars, but solely on the satisfaction of our clients. Every client has unique goals, and we distinguish ourselves by taking the time to understand their objectives and developing and implementing a tailored plan to achieve those objectives while going above and beyond to make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible.

For us, community is paramount. 

My management degree in Human Services underscores my lifelong goal of enhancing the lives of those in my community. We value a passion for serving the community in which we sell property, and this is a criterion for joining our team. It brings us great joy to support and strengthen our local community by developing close relationships with small businesses! Our agents are well-networked and offer so much more than the traditional real estate agent.

Remaining truly local matters.

At our brokerage, we’re proud to remain locally-owned and operated, with the freedom to service our clients in their best interests. This is made possible by the flexibility and agility that we can offer, thanks to our independent structure, which larger corporations can’t match due to their more rigid corporate structures. Our sales figures compete, a testament to the effectiveness of our team and our unwavering commitment to providing exceptional service to our clients.

About property on the water’s edge.

Growing up here has instilled in me a deep appreciation for the waters of Cape Cod and all the unique experiences they offer, from exhilarating water activities to the shimmering, distinct beauty of the water itself. Living on the Water’s Edge is truly unlike any other experience.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with many buyers seeking their dream waterfront homes during my 17 years as a REALTOR, and this built my local knowledge and reputation as waterfront specialist. My service-oriented approach to business emphasizes equal care and attention for all, and I strive to maintain connections with past clients. As a result, I’ve been fortunate enough to have many of my past clients return to me when it comes time to sell their properties. These are the same buyers who worked with me to purchase their waterfront properties in the first place, and it’s always a pleasure to work with them again. This is in contrast to the national standard, where according to the National Association of Realtors, only 20% of buyers use the same realtor for selling their property.

Additionally, as a specialist regularly assisting in buying and selling water property, I get to frequently experience the different types of water the Cape Cod region has to offer along with the unique scenery provided by each town. My authentic service-based approach, along with this experienced-obtained knowledge, have been the driving force behind my successful career marketing and selling properties along the Cape Cod shoreline and beyond. 

Why use a waterfront specialist?

A Cape Cod Waterfront Specialist understands the unique rules and regulations of selling on the water and how to navigate them to deliver a higher return for your property at the best terms. Knowing how to tie value to the various bodies of water in Cape Cod, along with their location and setting, is vital to achieving a selling price that maximizes the true value of your property. Waterfront specialists have a track record of achieving better results by understanding the waters of Cape Cod and the supply and demand for waterfront property.

A few of my notable selling achievements include record high sales of waterfront property on Wakeby/Mashpee Pond and Parkers River, both of which occurred before the nationwide impact of COVID-19 on the real estate market.

Ultimately, service is what sets us apart. And that’s why we’re different.

I’ve worked tirelessly to bring Property Cape Cod to where it is today. We’re a small boutique firm that remains steadfast to our service-oriented values, and our unwavering commitment to integrity and exceptional client service, coupled with our unique knowledge and strong negotiating skills, has resulted in an uniquely loyal, extensive client base.

I measure success by cultivating lasting friendships and clients for life. I invite you to get to know our family and become part of our ever-expanding network of friends.

What My clients are saying

  • When I hear the words “above and beyond,” I think of Tia Lilly. She is an exceptional broker – a hard working professional with a big heart and a great deal of compassion for her clients. Every person she recommended during my house sale was as professional and kind as Tia herself is. Thank you Tia for making life so much easier for me!

    Eleanor H.

    Seller, Single Family Home in Mashpee
  • I am delighted for the opportunity to comment on the professionalism, thoroughness and kindness of real estate agent Tia Lilly of Centerville, MA. 

    My family has owned vacation property on Ashumet Pond in Mashpee, MA for more than sixty-five years. The property was a beautiful location on a bluff overlooking the lake where we made many cherished memories as a family. Last fall we made the very difficult and sad decision to sell. In addition to many family members moving away, the property and house needed significant work that we could not keep up with. Much of this work was required by updated (and aggressive) town building codes with many curve balls thrown at us. 

    None of this phased Tia. She was able to work with Mashpee officials to update our property lots which resulted in an increase in our property value, and we believe, made the property more marketable. 

    We decided to trust our sale with Tia since she described herself on her website as a “waterfront specialist” which we can happily confirm. She actively screened potential buyers and kept us informed throughout the process. She was able to find us a cash buyer who was also interested in renovating the cottages not demolishing them. We think Tia found a family who can enjoy our property like we did for those many years.

    We strongly believe that using Tia in any real estate transaction would be a wise choice for someone looking to minimize the trauma of buying and selling real estate and maximize the bottom line. 

    Bob & Mary D.

    Sellers, Lakefront on Ashumet Pond, Mashpee
  • Tia has been very supportive to us even though we still haven’t purchased our Cape Cod house. We won’t go anywhere else to make that dream come true.

    Judy & Steve F.

    Buyer Prospect
  • We’ve gone thru 4 transactions with Tia over the last 10 years and all went great! I wouldn’t trust anyone else!

    Tina L.

    Buyer and Seller, Marstons Mills and South Yarmouth
  • Tia and her team sold 2 of my homes, and just sold my Mom’s home all in record time and at top market value! She is so professional and really takes the stress of selling a house off your shoulders. She understands all the emotions you go thru selling your property, coordinating the move, and purchasing your new dream home. Its a roller coaster of emotions and stress but Tia was there to help with any of the difficult situations and ease my mind throughout the process. She made it easy and I would highly recommend her. She has much real estate knowledge, skill and loves what she does! Its no wonder how she has grown her business in such a short time. She is a go getter and will work hard for her client. Thank you Tia!

    Christine C.

    Seller, Single Family Home in East Sandwich
  • I had the pleasure of working with Tia on a fairly complicated real estate transaction. She was the Realtor representing a buyer from overseas and I was handling the mortgage aspect of the transaction. Tia was a true professional throughout the whole process and was a joy to work with. Her knowledge, patience, and diligent follow-up made for a smooth transaction from what otherwise could have been a very difficult one. I would (and do) highly recommend her services!

    Ron S.

    Loan Officer
  • Tia helped my family find exactly what we were looking for on Cape Cod. She spent endless hours talking with us and meeting us at locations to find the right house for us. We still keep in touch with Tia to check in periodically. She is the best on Cape Cod.

    Greg K.

    Family of the Buyers, Waterfront home Monomoscoy Island in Mashpee
  • Tia is a knowledgeable, experienced Realtor who is a delight to work with. She loves living on the Cape and this is shared with her buyers and sellers. Tia works hard to make every transaction go as smoothly as possible and her pleasant nature, sense of humor, and professionalism will make anyone glad they chose her as their agent!

    Catherine J.

    Realtor on Cape Cod
  • Tia is one of the hardest working Realtors on Cape Cod. Tia’s commitment to exceed her clients expectations along with her vast knowledge of the Cape Cod waterfront is unprecedented.

    Dennis F.

    Realtor on Cape Cod
  • Working with Tia has been a pleasure. This is our 2nd successful business experience with Property Cape Cod, once for purchasing a vacation home, once for selling. She and her team work efficiently and smoothly…like a concierge at a 5 Star hotel, they act on every detail. Pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced…these qualities along with their caring personalities and networking
    capacities have made our realty experience one of ease, comfort and success!

    Nancy & John S.

    Buyers & Sellers, Single Family Home in East Falmouth
  • Tia sold my in-law’s home in Marstons Mills, my brother’s home in Mashpee and she helped us purchase our vacation home in Popponesset. She’s lovely and fun to work with and always incredibly responsive to questions. She truly just wants what’s best for her clients and is not hesitant to provide important advice based on her years of experience. We highly recommend Tia and Property Cape Cod.

    Laura and Rich B.

    Buyers, Popponesset Beachfront Home
  • Tia, the best Real Estate person I ever met. She was so helpful during my sale. She is very professional as a RE broker and very pleasant to talk to. Thank you, Tia!

    Mike Y.

    Seller, Riverfront Home with Deep Water Dock on Parker’s River, South Yarmouth
  • We purchased our first home with Tia six years ago and she has been a constant source of guidance and knowledge ever since. Anytime, day or night, if we need advise, we pick up the phone and Tia is always there to help. We recently purchased our second home with Tia and once again she went out of her way to make sure everything went as simple and stress free as possible. I am so thankful to have her to rely on. I no longer think of Tia as our REALTOR. I think of her as a trusted friend. Thank you Tia for EVERYTHING!!! You are one of a kind!

    Martha B.

    Buyer – Centerville
  • I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks. I’m winding up my first summer at the house, and it’s been a great year! I want you to know, I feel that you couldn’t have put me in a better place: I love the house, the location is perfect for me, that’s where your knowledge and experience shine. The one small problem I had was resolved easily, but only because of your extra effort. If you remember, you made sure the service guy got in touch with me as I couldn’t get through to him. He also turned out to be very fair and a good guy, so thanks for that contact. That all happened six months after the closing and you were on top of it.

    I do have to let you know that I do have just one complaint, the summer went by way too fast and it’s all your fault! I bet you’ll try to resolve that too! Thanks again for a great business experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with you again. I’ve also recommended you to several people, I know you’ll take great care of them!

    Bob L.

    Buyer & Seller, Lakefront Cottage on Melody Pond, Centerville
  • I began browsing on the web as many of us do when looking for a vacation home on the Cape a few months ago. That is how I first met Tia; by stumbling across her website as I was doing my web search. What a lucky day that was for me. Tia is by far the best Realtor® I have ever worked with. She is organized, patient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around and, to work with. I live out of the area and had a very short window between finding the home of my dreams and closing on the house, all during the Christmas Holiday. Tia worked miracles for me and was a true lifesaver. She went above and beyond what any of us would expect or what any of us have experienced in a realtor. She kept me calm, happy and focused through what should have been a very stressful process. Believe me that is no easy task! I cannot say enough good things about Tia. She is the absolute best!

    Gabrielle C.

    Buyer & Seller, Beachfront Investment Property on Cape Cod Bay in Barnstable Village
  • I still remember the great service and help you gave me in finding and buying my cottage. It’s been 4 years since I bought the cottage, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I just love the location and atmosphere of my place, and I wouldn’t change anything…Tia, I would definitely like to keep in touch, and sometime in the future, I just might be able to buy some more property. I am not a long time away from retirement (7-10 years), and I just may be in the market again to purchase some real estate. Again, thank you for remembering me.

    Steve L.

    Buyer, Walk-to-Beach House in West Yarmouth
  • A couple of years ago, my wife and I decided that we wanted to someday purchase a home on the Cape. We didn’t know exactly when this would happen, however we visit at least a few times a year traveling from Denver. We had a lot of work to do. As anxious people we started looking online for homes for sale. We were not ready. One home must have got our attention, and we made an inquiry. This is when we met Tia Lilly. What a find. Tia listened to us, as we explained what our plans for the future were. Boy, did she ever listen. We asked questions, she listened, we wanted information, she got it. We questioned ourselves, “Are we driving her crazy?” Tia insisted not. Instead we became friends that enjoyed each others’ company.

    As time passed, we did what as needed to move forward. Earlier this year we found a house that would work for us. Tia made it happen. She not only made it happen, she made it so easy for us to close on the home. Now that we own the home, Tia is still making it happen or us. Living in Colorado, it is difficult to deal with everyday details of being a homeowner, Tia is still making it happen for us. If anyone looking to buy or sell a home, or is looking for an agent, (friend) look to Tia. SHE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR YOU.

    Rob & Susan L.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in Centerville
  • Having purchased many homes in my life, I have learned that without the “right” real estate agent to look after your best interests, the process can be very stressful and difficult. Tia is an amazing agent. Her attention to detail and her ability to listen puts her at the top of all the real estate agents I have ever dealt with. We contacted her, explained to her what we were looking for and she went to work to find us the perfect home. She is extremely conscientious and detail oriented and did not stop working for us until every detail was taken care of right up to the point of closing. I would highly recommend her services to anyone buying or selling a home on Cape Cod.

    Jackie and Mitchell G.

    Buyers & Sellers, Luxury Home in New Seabury
  • Thank you Tia for making our house purchase such a pleasant experience. From the first time we spoke on the phone, you understood what we were looking for and my time constraints. I appreciated the fact that you always checked the houses before we went to look and when we found the perfect house, you were there to make sure everything was done on time with minimal inconvenience. To be sure, it was not an easy closing, since we had to deal with an estate settlement two days before the closing. Once again, you stepped up to the plate and talked me off the ledge when I was ready to jump! Your professionalism, knowledge and willingness to go out of your way, makes you one of a kind. Much continued success on your career and it will be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone who can use your services.

    Octavia S.

    Buyer, Single Family Home in Centerville
  • Hard to believe, but Beth and I don’t usually attached ourselves with people we first meet. We’re observers of the heart, and often that takes time to discern. But your heart was easy to read. You wear it on your sleeve, and we are grateful you shared it with us. I remember the first time Beth met you and her reaction when she came home from that meeting. ‘We have to work with Tia,’ was all she said. And I never even considered second guessing Beth’s opinion. Because it’s always right. (Wasn’t that the good husband thing to say right there?)

    Our Tia Rose (we’ve named it that!) was the first thing we planted in our front garden, and it is doing well and thriving – it truly represents our friendship with you and we’ll care for it in the same manner. As we continue to clean and settle, cut and trim, we are always thinking of you… keep your calendar free for us end of summer when things slow down. We must have you over for an afternoon tea.

    You are the salt of the earth, Tia. It is we are the fortunate ones to have met you. And we hope you never forget that. With great love and appreciation.

    Beth & Troy S.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in Centerville
  • I have given Tia Lilly the highest rating for all categories of professional skills to fully express my complete satisfaction with her assistance through the buying process, Not only did she assist in negotiation and sales arrangements with the seller, but also provided valuable contacts and facilitated home inspection and evaluation, property insurance and closing arrangements. This agent was willing to personally trudge through the snow of February 2015 to take photographs on site when we were unable to do this ourselves.

    Gary W. & Terry T.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in Orleans
  • When my husband and I decided to sell our home in Centerville, a co-worker of his recommended Tia. I believe she helped his daughter buy a new home. From the first day Tia, was absolutely wonderful. She was always in constant contact with us, always available when we had questions and if she wasn’t available immediately she would always get back to us quickly. Tia knows the Cape extremely well.

    It was a stressful selling a home and buying a home but having someone like Tia took that stress away. As happy as I was when our home sold and we bought another home, I was a little sad that I probably wouldn’t be talking to Tia anymore. That didn’t happen, we have developed a great friendship. Not only did we buy and sell we have now have a great friend. I would highly recommend her if you are either buying or selling a home, or if you are doing both. You will not find a better real estate agent.

    Nancy & Jamie B.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in Osterville
  • We think Tia is fabulous! No pressure sales, she really cares about her clients. She goes above and beyond with a caring way! Thanks, Tia, for helping us find our home.

    Stacey S.

  • We have worked with Tia for several years and can’t say enough good things about her…she is responsive, diligent, and always a true professional. We’d recommend her to anyone looking for real estate on the Cape.

    Joe and Peggy A.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in the Heart of Dennis Village
  • I’d recommend Tia to family and friends in a heartbeat. She’s about giving personal service and guidance to achieve the objective you set. Call her and trust her.

    Heather H.

  • I have both bought and sold with Tia Lilly , and referred my own daughter to buy with Tia, excellent service , top notch !! Go Tia!!

    Tony D.

    Buyer & Seller, Single Family Homes in Mashpee
  • Tia spent endless hours showing my husband and I properties on Cape Cod as we searched for our retirement home. Not living in the area, we would be spontaneous in asking her to show us homes as we visited family in the area. She always made herself available!! Her wide knowledge of the real estate market along with her ability to understand our needs was the complete package in getting us what we wanted. Tia is the best!!!

    Kathryn & Stephen C.

    Buyers, Riverfront Home in East Falmouth
  • Tia was a great resource when we bought our West Falmouth home in 2014. We couldn’t imagine doing it without her help and guidance.

    David & Diane M.

    Buyers, Walk-to-Beach Home in West Falmouth
  • I have known Tia since 2008 when we purchased our Cape House from her. She was fabulous! She worked tirelessly to find something within our price range and preferred area and we could not have been happier with her help. Tia was not only an exceptional agent, but one of the most caring people I have ever met. She was and always has been genuinely concerned about our satisfaction and goes above and beyond to make sure everything has gone well with our house even after the sale was completed. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate, and I would give her ten stars if I could. If you are looking for someone with high integrity who will work to get you the best deal in a place you will love forever, Tia is the person to talk to. She was not just our agent, but a true friend who really cared for us and didn’t stop until she found us our dream house!

  • Tia was a pleasure to work with. We would gladly call her if we needed any real estate help.

    Judy & Keith C.

    Buyers, Walk-to-Beach Home in Sagamore
  • Tia has become not only a broker to us, but a friend. We have been looking at homes on Cape Cod for many years and because of our unique circumstances have not been able to find something to suit our needs. Many times we were hesitant to call Tia for a showing because of our history of not buying. Yet when we finally did call her, thinking this house could be the one, she would always welcome the call with hope and enthusiasm, always accommodating us. When we didn’t like the house, she would respond with, ‘it just wasn’t the right one’, and say that it was still good to see us, making us feel like not just clients, but friends. We are still looking forward to the purchase of our Cape House and seeing Tia again.

    Joanne & Michael M.

    Buyer Prospect
  • Tia was referred to us when we contracted to purchase a home in Osterville. The word was that Tia was an “expert” on properties in that area. That proved to be both correct, and an understatement of what she brings to the table. How was she? AWESOME! Tia’s approach was exactly what was needed during our search. Not only is she knowledgeable as to various areas, but also certain local customs and legal requirements. She quickly established herself as a member of our “team.” Tia is extremely knowledgeable, and worked seamlessly to stay on top of every aspect of the purchase. She proved to be responsive and available to answer questions or address needs and concerns at any time. Moreover, Tia has proven to be a much needed resource when seeking recommendations as to contractors post-closing.

    But what’s even more impressive is that the commitment didn’t end with the closing, beginning with making arrangements to have out driveway plowed when we got hit with a snowstorm on the day of our closing! In short – As Good as they Come!

    David B.

    Buyer, Single Family Home in Osterville Village and Luxury Home in East Sandwich
  • Tia is very patient and kind, she listens to your needs and wants. She is always available to help. We will definitely use Tia again when we plan to list our home.

    Ted S.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in Marstons Mills
  • We began working with Tia in 2014 on our quest to find our forever home on the Cape. While our initial search was broad stretching from New Seabury to Orleans, Tia patiently set up appointments for us, initially listening intently to our reactions to various properties, ultimately stepping in ever so respectfully and directing us more towards Orleans and introducing us to Chatham. After seeing at least 50 homes, Tia knew which was the perfect fit however never pushed us to make a decision, artfully guiding us toward a short list of properties that would be perfect for our family. Tia was astutely aware of our budget, walked us through the pros and cons of each home, fully knowing for several months we ultimately would bid on 55 Frost Fish Hill. During negotiations, Tia’s skill sets shone, not only getting us a fair price but also insuring the timelines for closing were met. Fast forward over a year now in our new home, Tia remains an integral part of our lives, be it helping us find the right skilled craftsmen to do work for us or just dropping in to make sure we are happy. We would recommend Tia with the utmost confidence for buying a home on Cape Cod and feel so fortunate to have found her.

  • Property Cape Cod Real Estate represents what a great real estate firm should be all about which is excellent Service, Expertise, and then on top of that some TLC! I used Tia Lilly as an agent in buying several vacation homes on the Cape and then hired her agency to manage my properties and summer rentals. I have lots of gray hair as I have bought and sold property in various states and overseas so I know an exceptional real estate firm when I experience it, and this is truly an exceptional real estate firm.
