What Our Clients Say

  • 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.

  • “Highly recommend Dawn…She is very professional, knowledgeable, and provides excellent advice. We have already recommended Dawn to our friends who are searching for a home.”

    Marco B.

  • “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.

  • “Dawn was fantastic throughout our buying process, very competent and professional. She was helpful in so many ways, from consistently sending potential property matches, to advising us on presenting an offer, researching and finding info for us on special permitting needed and providing lots of town info. I would not hesitate to work with Dawn again or recommend her services.”

    Donna F.

  • “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.

  • “Working with Dawn was an absolute pleasure. She made the process of finding a house and closing extremely straight forward and seamless. She is always kind and available and extremely knowledgeable and resourceful. If we had to go through this process again we would not hesitate to work together once more.”

    Cristina A.

  • I couldn’t be happier with Dawn as she went above and beyond for me. I would highly recommend her on the buy or sell side. We trust her so much that she is also managing our property for us.

    Jason G.

  • “Everything was perfect. Karen was open and knowledgeable and I couldn’t be happier. I was having a lot of trouble with the properties down the Cape and had a lot of negative experiences. I met with her on a whim one day and she picked out a few places to see and the second one was a hit, then and there. There was another offer on the table and we were able to compete with it and won the house. I am now on my second week in the home and that’s what it is, it is a home. She even went the extra step with her husband to help fix one of the improvement items on my list and it couldn’t be better. Thank you, Karen!”

    Scott H.

  • “Karen is the most patient and hard working realtor, she never stops and always takes your call and questions and goes right to work researching. She puts her client’s needs in front of her own. Additionally she is a great negotiator and finds great buys! Highly recommended.”

    Jake D.

  • “Great ladies – proactive, caring and insightful. Thank you Dawn and Karen for taking all the time you did with my family and me.”

    Leslie K.

  • “Our experience with Dawn was amazing! She was responsive to all our questions and helped us navigate the buying process. She worked hard to accommodate our limited schedule, and get us in to view all the houses we requested, as well as one that she recommended – that we actually purchased! Throughout the sales and closing process, Dawn was a very upbeat, organized, and knowledgeable. She arranged extra inspections and even conducted a virtual walk-through (due to COVID-19 restrictions). More importantly, after the sale Dawn has stayed in touch to make sure everything is as it should be. I highly recommend Dawn’s services for your next real estate transaction!”

    Karen C.

  • “Dawn was simply outstanding. She helped us all through the process and took extra time to attend to our every need. Dawn also kept a positive spirit, which greatly helped us to attain the perfect house for us. She is simply wonderful to help you in your real estate goals.”

    Mike P.

  • “I cannot express in this review how happy we were to have Karen Lilly help us purchase our dream home on the Cape. From our first interactions with her, she had a very easy going, no pressure approach. She initially offered to show us other properties that may suit our needs, but then she quickly realized we had already fallen in love with this house. She helped us at every stage of the process, negotiating what we needed her to, and giving us any information we asked for. She went above and beyond by assisting us with other items related to the purchase, such as obtaining information about the dock situation, getting us all the contacts for the utilities, and nudging the lender along. We completely trusted her opinions and guidance. She really listened to us, and she was in tune with our needs from the very beginning. We highly recommend her.”

    Noelle and Tom S.

  • “Dawn was with us every step of the way. While not the easiest of clients admittedly, she was thoughtful of the properties she showed us. She was there every moment we reached out to her – even at a moments notice. She was knowledgeable of the different properties, and was able to make us aware of both advantages and disadvantages. Even after the sale, we have been in touch and will no doubt use her services to help us in our future endeavors.”

    Mary L. and Christina C.

  • “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.

  • “I just purchased my first home using Dawn, and she was excellent through the whole experience. She was willing to do anything she could to help us out in any way she could, and she was also excellent at answering any questions we had throughout the process. Also after we purchased the home using Dawn, we had problems after the sale, and she was right there to help us out even though she didn’t have to because her job was technically over, but she was right there to help us out. I would never use anybody else but her again.”

    Tom T.

  • “Great ladies – proactive, caring and insightful. Thank you Dawn and Karen for taking all the time you did with my family and me.”

    Leslie K.

  • “Just sending a note about the excellent service I received from Dawn Newman when I bought my house at 21 Harvard Dr., Plymouth last year. I was very happy with Dawn’s help in finding us our dream home. She was so helpful and knowledgeable. She made the entire process of buying my first home much less intimidating and a good experience. Dawn made sure all our questions were answered and anything we needed, she was right there to help. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling.”

    Debra G.

  • “It was a real pleasure to have Dawn Andalft-Newman as our agent. She has extensive knowledge of the area, is very friendly, is careful with all the details, and is always available to respond to a phone call, text message or email. She is driven and quick in getting into action. We felt completely supported through the whole process.

    She will always be our agent for the Cape and we certainly will recommend Dawn Andalft-Newman to friends and family looking for property on Cape Cod.”

    Andrea B.

  • “I would like to say that we are extremely pleased with the services provided to us during our purchase of our home in Plymouth MA. From the beginning, we informed Dawn that this was a transitional purchase for my recently widowed mother, and that we would only close on a property that met all the requirements – thus greatly reducing the flexibility in choices she could offer her. Dawn worked diligently providing properties for over a year, as we continued to look for a new home. Often many properties were rejected for what many would consider petty reasons. Dawn never became frustrated or impatient with us, and always provided updates as they came to market.

    In fact, when the property we finally purchased came onto the market, we rejected it at first. It was Dawn’s constant attention to changes in the property’s pricing that brought us back to this location, ultimately allowing us to close on it. Even when my requests were “extraordinary”, Dawn respected my wishes and forwarded my offers to the seller. Again, we couldn’t be more pleased with Dawn, and would highly recommend her to friends and family.”

    Dion T.

  • “Karen Lilly is absolutely wonderful to work with. My husband and I have been working with Karen for the past three-four years. It’s a collaborative effort when we work. She hears what we’re both looking for and what we’re not saying and goes after it for us. If it’s not available at the time, she continues to monitor the location for something we may be interested in. If I see something out there we run it by Karen and she’s off knocking on doors, writing letters or calling up and finding out all she can about the location. She’s the hardest working realtor that we’ve been so lucky to work with. Even though she is working with many clients, we’re always made to feel like we’re the only ones. “

    Joan B.

  • “Karen is efficient and quick to respond to emails and calls. She took care of selling my house so that I had little to do. She is also pleasant and friendly. I am happy to recommend Karen.”

    Beverly L.

  • “I worked with Karen Lilly back in 2009. She is one of the best! She knew exactly what we wanted and got us our vacation home within a couple months! She is a great realtor with passion and integrity. I would def work with her again and recommend her to all my friends/family.”

    Grace G.

  • “I loved working with Karen. The two most important things I look for when I work with anyone are trust and respect. Emotions sometimes can overcome us during the home purchase process and make us act impulsively. Karen was honest with me from Day 1, giving me insight and opinions that I needed to hear, even when I didn’t want to, regarding homes that I looked at. For that she earned my trust. Karen was very respectful of my time, as well, and was always responsive. I’d work with her again.”

    Robert T. and Christopher R.

  • “Karen is amazing. I have known her personally and professionally for many years. She has been helpful in several of my real estate transactions. Her wisdom, experience, kindness, and attention to detail are her greatest attributes.”

    Ellen C.

  • “We found a few homes on the internet. We contacted Karen, as she was the listing agent on one of the homes. It was very lucky for us. She took us around to the homes we were interested in. She was very knowledgeable and honest. We did not hesitate to put in an offer on the first day. She was with us every step of the way, and was very good at negotiating a fair deal for us. This summer will be our first full summer enjoying our home, and after a few more updates, we should be ready to enjoy the summer.”

    Carol P.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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 L.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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 S.

  • “I have known Tia since 2008 when we purchased our Cape House from her. 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.”

    Tom S.

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

    Judy & Keith C.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.

  • “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.”

    Robert R. & Terri T.

  • “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.”
