Testimonials to Our Cape Cod REALTORS®
I am so excited to have this deal done. Thank you for dealing with my anxiety! You are the best!!! I appreciate that over the last ten plus years I've learned that you are someone I can really trust. I plan to have a house warming when the condo is done, so I hope you'll come to that. Thanks for getting me through this, Bill.
"We appreciated David Iseman's patience and persistence along with his unrelenting pursuit of finding us a home that would fit both my Mother's full time residence needs and serve as a great weekend place for my husband and I. David walked us step by step through the purchase and closing right in time for Labor Day weekend! His enthusiasm for service is rare in today's industry. We were very pleased with the process and the outcome."
Michele and Ryan S. Milton, MA
"We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your company's services as we recently purchased our summer home in Falmouth. In particular, David Iseman worked tirelessly to make sure that all of our needs were met as we went through this process. His time and dedication to all the details were impressive!From our experience, he is truly an asset to your company and we will recommend his services to our friends in the future."
Coreen and Hank Donlon
"David helped us sell our house and find our dream house all within 3 months! He knew what we wanted and took the time to explain the whole buying/selling process to us. We had a particular house in mind that we knew would not last long on the market, so we were anxious to sell our house as soon as we could. David did his own research and gave us a list of comparable properties so we could price our house at a competitive price. He even arranged for a "stager" to come to our house and give us some ideas that statistically prove you will sell your house faster! He was always there to answer any of our questions and was still there after the purchase of our new home to ensure our satisfaction. We will definitely recommend David to any of our friends and family who are looking to sell or buy a home. His professionalism and dedication made it a great experience for us!"
Mike & Roxanne; Falmouth, MA
"We are very excited! We want to thank you for all your great service and the many, many above-and-beyond efforts that you put into this search for us. This was no easy task with the distance from Maine to the Cape, the fact that this was a short sale, the attorneys were in two different places, and I am not that easy to reach. Diligence, organization, patience and sheer will were important attributes that you showed us each step of the way. We very much appreciate your care, kindness and expertise throughout this process.We will DEFINITELY be referring you to our friends and family as they hopefully wander down to the Cape with us, and we encourage you to use us as references for any new clients with whom you are trying to build a relationship. You will walk on water when we are done speaking with them! We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, and hope you are not a stranger in the future. All the best"
Donna and Bruce
During the course of a year, David used various means of virtual communication (web sites, MLS listings, emails, newsletters, etc) to educate us about the housing market in Falmouth.and took the time to understand our unique circumstance which required us to leverage the equity in our European residence in order to purchase a home on the Cape. After viewing numerous properties with David, we found one that we really liked. David used his expertise to guide us to an offer. By doing a thorough analysis of comparable properties, David came up with a number that saved us almost $60,000 off the list price. We are now happy owners of a beautiful saltbox in East Falmouth!"
Christine G. and Patrick C. Limerick, Ireland
“You were always so helpful and available for questions regarding the property. I would not hesitate to inform someone interested in selling their property on The Cape to contact you. In fact, I would insist on it. From the bottom of our hearts, Dave, we thank you for your professionalism, kindness, your friendship and for being so on top of this sale.”
Lianne L. East Weymouth, MA
“Thanks for all your hard work in helping us become home owners on Cape Cod. We will recommend you for your great service.”

"We have sold five properties and never before have we had such a caring and competent relationship with our REALTOR®. There is no better representation for a Buyer or Seller on the Upper Cape than David Iseman."
Sandie and Bob M.; Somerset, MA (their house sold in 13 days!)
"We referred you because we trust you as a professional! They are great friends and we cared they had the best experience. Thank you!"
Bob and Emer W.; East Falmouth, MA
David Iseman's patience and dedication in helping his clients find their dream home is unparalleled. We built a relationship with understanding, trust, and honesty as the cornerstones.
David never rushed us,and always greeted us with the same enthusiasm as if we're meeting for the first time. Being 4.5 hours away, David functioned as our eyes and ears on the Cape.
With David’s guidance the closing was a breeze and now we're the proud owners of a little piece of heaven at the Cape!

David is an honest real estate agent who provides his services without any pressure. We recently purchased a short sale through David that went through pretty smoothly.He kept us updated on a weekly basis, even if there was no news. He was easy to talk to, returned phone calls and emails quickly, and was always willing to answer any questions. After purchasing the house, we have remained in contact with David. He can recommend plumbers, lawn care, handymen, etc in the area. He goes above and beyond what is expected. After the hurricane, he even went over to check on our house to make sure everything was ok! We would definitely recommend David. J. Marthur
We wanted to express our sincerest thanks for your services throughout our real estate transaction. You facilitated such a smooth and easy process from start to finish and we couldn't be more pleased. Also thank you so much for the lovely gift (we were just down to the Cape for the first time this past weekend and opened it). That was so thoughtful and is a nice addition to our home. We thought you might like to know that this is the very first time of any of our 6 previous real estate transactions over the past 12 years that an agent has expressed any sort of gratitude for our business, so that itself we greatly appreciate. Thanks again for everything, Greta & Dominic Viens
"Worked with the "Fabulous" Erika last year and would like to work with her again. She saved my family from a crises when we got scammed and she found us a home in 2 hrs. that was perfect!!!! " Karen M.
"Thank you very much and you are great to work with. I can tell you from a customer that deals with customers everyday myself, you sure know how to make customer satisfaction number ONE."
"Thanks, Erika, you are the best!! It is professional people like you that makes this process so nice and easy. You made it so pleasant and I really feel so lucky to have you as my agent. Everything sounds great! Maybe I will give you a call when I get there, just to let you know that we have arrived. Thanks!"
"Erika helped my wife and I find a beautiful home to buy in Mashpee back in October of 2008 after searching all summer long for the right location and home to purchase. Erika's dedication, diligence, and hard work have truly been appreciated by our family and we wanted to let you know that we truly believe she's a real asset to your business. We just wanted to take a moment to let you know how we felt as we know how hard it is to find trustworthy, reliable, hard workers in this day and age.We recommend Foley Real Estate to everyone we know and it's mainly been because of all her efforts. We look forward to working with Foley Real Estate in the years to come" Ed Dervishian
"I would just like to thank you again for picking up the clothes we left behind ~ what a huge relief! I also wanted to let you know that I deliberately left behind a decoration for their living room if they want it. It was a candle with shells and sand that I thought would look nice in their home. You have been a wonderful realtor to work with and I will definitely be referring you to anyone I know who is interested in renting or buying in the Falmouth area. Take care!" Ellen Leonard
"Thanks Erika..You are above the call of duty, I just love you. Thanks again!" Judy
"Hi Erika…got the checks yesterday in the mail…all’s good…thanks for all your help. I know when I want something to happen, you are the one to go to!" David Mozes
"It's been great working with you! You helped us realize one of our dreams ...to own a house by the ocean! We look forward to working with you in the future as we get our 'little house that can' rented. Thank you so much! We'll be in touch." Lyn
I appreciate all that you and your company have done for our family. I know I sent you a letter last year informing you of how much we appreciated the work of your employee Erika Capobianco but just one letter, or just one mention doesnt seem quite enough to show our appreciation for all she has done to help us with advice and helping us rent out the summer weeks. We continue to praise Foley Real Estate to everyone we know. You and your team have made our dream possible to own a house on the Cape! Sincerely, Ed & Narine Dervishian
I greatly enjoy our association and appreciate your efforts in finding tenants who take care of our condo. It's been a pleasure working with you throughout the years. Thank you for everything you do! Rick Maple.
Hey Erika: This is just a spontaneous input to let you know that as a Vermont commercial broker for the past couple of decades, I really appreciate dealing with you and the way you handle things, very organized and with a good mix of "low key" candor and recently, a little bit of very appropriate encouragement to "get it done". I just wanted to let you know the we, and I, very much appreciate your style of business. And, not the least of it, Mary and I feel that we're in very good hands to weave though what it takes to close a deal on an OREO property. Hopefully it will come to that. Thanks for your good assistance!
I forgot to mention to you that this past weekend marked exactly 3 years we’ve had the Mashpee home and we thank you SO MUCH for all your help not only to get it but to help us with everything else throughout the last 3 years to get it in shape and rent it out! The more we look around the happier we are with the purchase we made! Erika, seriously. Thank you so much…..for everything including (especially) your friendship. We’re so glad we met you! (I know I’ve told you before but never seems enough J ). Edward Dervishian
My name is Karen Montefalco and I wanted to take a moment to recognize your employee Erika. I have worked with Erika for three years, as she has been the realtor helping me rent a vacation property in Falmouth Heights for the last few years. She is always a pleasure to work with! She is incredibly accommodating, and has gone above an beyond several times for us. One year, my family of 10 was scammed, and I contacted Erika in a pinch because it was the day our vacation was to start, and when we showed up, we had no house to rent! I know she put in extra hours for me that day and found us a great home! This year, we have an extenuating circumstance as well, and once again Erika has come through. Whether its showing me a property short notice, or putting extra hours in, she is always so pleasant and I'm sure you know you are lucky to have her!!! I'm sure this isn't the first time you've heard wonderful things about Erika, and I'm sure it won't be the last! Thank you for your time! Karen Montefalco
"Erika dots all her I's and crosses all her T's. Nothing gets by her, so you are well represented buying or selling. She is great to work with."

Where do I even begin to describe the extremely positive experience my company had while dealing with Erika from your office. My company travels nation wide conducting our business, and I am very aware of the ubiquitous nature of poor service. But not when I was dealing with Erika. She was knowledgeable, expedient, informative and competent. She returned calls promptly and was abundantly helpful. It was truly my pleasure to find her and look forward to calling on your company again when we return to the area. Thank you. Thomas Provencher

"It is with great pleasure that I write the undersigned testimonial for one of your Realtors, Jack Fagan. Jack assisted my wife Ellen and me in our search and eventual purchase of our home in Wild Harbor Estates in North Falmouth. Jack was most knowledgeable of the local market. He helped make the process of selecting our new home flow smoothly and efficiently. He was well aware of the parameters of our search and brought us only to those homes that fit our needs. He was always easy to work with and available to handle the little unexpected issues. He was not pushy in any way, yet was forceful in negotiations with the parties involved. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Jack's professionalism, courtesy and real estate expertise. I have and will certainly continue to recommend Jack to my friends and associates for their real estate needs in the Falmouth area."

Thank you for going the extra mile during this difficult housing market to get my parent's home sold in Falmouth. You kept me well-informed and you were always looking out for my best interest as a seller. I would not hesitate to recommend you! Gini Patterson. Golden, Colorado
Jane Sorenti Joy is a "people person". She is also extraordinarily astute in real estate. She knows house construction and systems. All these attributes make her a very efficient and proficient real estate agent. Jane is very friendly, informative, honest, supportive, encouraging, knowledgeable, patient and very personable. She is also professional, creative, smart, courteous, tenacious and works extremely hard not only to match the house to the buyer but to have the sale go smoothly. When we were selling our property, Jane suggested enhancements from her experience that get buyers interested in buying the house. She knows the desirable "sale points" in even the most non-descript house. Her expertise and knowledge of the local Cape Cod market was right on and proved to be very valuable in making the decision to put the house on the market at the best price. The house SOLD four days after being put on the market. Thank you, Jane!!! Steve & Peggy Pacuska
"I wanted to tell you that Rob and I think you have done an awesome job for us. You were always willing to take us out and really had our best interest at heart. I would gladly recommend you to others that are looking for real estate on the Cape and, in fact, have told many people what a great service we received from you that we were extremely pleased with your service. Thanks for caring."
"We would like to thank you for the wonderful treatment we received from you during the process of selling our home. We often remarked during this lengthy period that we couldn't possibly have found a harder working or more honest individual than you to represent us. Selling a home can be a very trying experience for anyone, but you turned this potentially unpleasant situation into one that had a very positive impact on us due to your extreme professionalism and your kind compassionate nature. The most important aspect of what started out as a business relationship is that we gained a very dear friend. Thank you for everything."
Nancy & Lee Hadway
Jane Joy is absolutely determined to sell your house. She is persistent, smart, savvy, creative and professional - exactly what any seller needs now in this market. When we were selling our property, Jane was constantly coming up with new and fresh ideas to enhance the marketing and then get buyers interested in showings. Once they showed interest, she kept after them, without being pushy, while screening out those that were just the tire-kickers. In two words - "Jane rocks!"
"We are more than happy to recommend Jane Joy to anyone who is in the market for some real estate. She listened to us about what we wanted in a new home and never seemed to tire of showing us possibilities...and it was a long process since we looked at many many houses. Jane was knowledgeable, good company, and always positive during our search. Thanks to Jane we are happily settled and enjoying our little corner of N. Falmouth."
Sherran and Roger Vickery
"When we decided it was time to down-size our home, we our laid out our needs to our Realtor: we wanted to move out of our house for six winter months, while our existing home would be sold; we needed a nice rental at reasonable cost for those months; and we needed to find an acceptable town house ready to move into at the end of those six months. Our Realtor quickly located a lovely condo for rent on the Harbor, available through May, which suited us perfectly. During a less-than-active housing market, our Realtor brought a few offers for our home to us during the winter, without a groan of disappointment when we turned them down. When we spent a month in Florida, our Realtor became caretaker of our property. Spring brought an offer that was more attractive, and negotiations through our Realtor brought us to agreement with a buyer. Our Realtor then patiently escorted us to nearly every town house property in Falmouth and Bourne, until we decided on the right one for us. In every respect, our Realtor was professional, patient, and gracious, in each of these three transactions. Our Realtor was Jane Joy, and she is with Foley Real Estate". Bill Long
"Jane is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She has helped us sell multiple properties that we never thought would sell so quickly and easily. She is professional, friendly, creative, smart, courteous and works extremely hard to help you reach your goals. We highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell on Cape Cod and the surrounding markets". Bay Haven Properties
"My husband and I were looking to purchase a summer home in Falmouth, Ma. We started our search in February of 2009. We met Jane after I called her number from a yard sign to show us a house she had listed. Jane was very friendly and made us feel comfortable, there was an ease in wich she showed us that property and others that made us instantly relaxed. Jane's knowledge of the area and the feel of the current market were impressive. There was absolutely NO pressure on us to buy from her, we continued to work with her on and off throughout the month of March (2009). As it turned out we ended up finding a house that was listed with another broker but we called Jane to get us into it and for her to represent us as a "buyers agent". We had no commitment to Jane ,and we could have negotiated a price with that listing agent, but we knew that we needed a local broker who would work in our best interest (and she did) and be HONEST. We purchased our house in June of 2009 and could'nt be happier. We were so satisfied with our experience that we refferred our best friends to Jane and she found them a gorgeous waterfront home last summer (2010). I normally don't write reviews but I felt it was important to do one for Jane because she works very hard and is excellent at what she does. I am pleased that i can also call her my friend"! happy hunting, Maribeth Coolbrith
"We are from out of state and dreamed of purchasing a summer home on the Cape someday. Jane happened to be the agent representing a cottage we were interested in. From the very first call to inquire about the house through beyond the purchase of this home Jane was very informative, honest, resourceful, supportive, encouraging, knowledgable, patient, and very personable. Her expertise with the area and market was insightful and proved to be very valuable in making the decision to make the purchase at this time. She was quick to answer every question and appropriately referred us to equally masterful professionals to handle the insurance, banking, and legal issues which were complicated due to residing out of state. She assisted with securing renter information and provided much education to the process. We placed our trust in Jane and without her outstanding skills our dream would not have become a reality. She has offered to continue to be available to us for any future questions or need for resources/assistance. We feel very blessed to have met her and are grateful to her for facilitating our dream much sooner than we ever thought possible. Thank you Jane"!!!!!! VIncent & Margaret Palmieri
Thank you very much for finding the rental property for me, my son and daughter for the August 18 week. I appreciate all your help and work. This is my first time doing this, and you made it very easy. I am keeping your information for whenever I may need it again. I want you to know that I was contemplating 3 properties that were in different locations will same proximity to the ocean, and similarly priced. However, after I asked about all the fees for all 3 places, your realty had the others beat hands down. I think it's important for your realty to realize this so many others will choose Foley in the future if they run into the fees at other places. So Foley kept the price down for me, saving me $240, which is a lot of money. So thank you, and please pass on my praise for the company. Mary Ann Nardone-Bello Rochester, New York
"We just wanted you to know what an excellent employee you have in Jane Joy. She recently sold an estate property for us in Sagamore Beach, MA in what we consider record time. She went out of her way to advertise the property all sorts of ways. She spent considerable time taking care of all the nuances of this sale and she kept us in the loop constantly (we live in Connecticut). She was the go-between for us and dealings with the town as well as the prospective buyers and us. She was a gem of the highest order and we would recommend her highly". Joan and Bruce Gardner
This letter of reference is to recommend Realtor Jeff Griesbauer for consideration in listing and selling your property. After interviewing a number of realtors to list and sell our vacation property in East Falmouth, we chose Jeff to handle this very important transaction for us and were extremely pleased with this decision.
From the initial visit to first see our house, Jeff impressed us with his level of professionalism and preparedness. He arrived with his marketing material, but also with a full analysis of other comparable homes in Maravista. Jeff not only shared this analysis from our viewpoint as sellers, but also showed us potential buyers might analyze the same information. After viewing the property, we were then able to finalize the best asking price for the property.
We were very pleased with the level of advertising both print and on-line. We thought Jeff provided a a comprehensive and compelling write-up to attract buyers to view the property. He conducted two open houses in one weekend; we received an e-mail summary of the events that took place and next steps. Throughout the time our home was on the market, Jeff kept us well informed of all both the viewings at the house as well as the reactions of the viewers. In the end, Jeff sold our house in less than 3 weeks. We received multiple offers and ultimately accepted a full price offer.
Throughout the entire process, Jeff remained accessible to us. All phone calls were returned in a very timely fashion, and he was always willing to provide guidance on the process. As we weren't living in the home, he made several trips to the home during our absence to help in the final steps of sale before closing.
Overall, Jeff made the sale of our vacation a smooth and easy process. If you are looking to list and sell your home, I would recommend working with Jeff Griesbauer.
"Now that I've moved into my new home and unpacked most of the boxes, I want to thank you once again for your role in making this all happen. When I began house hunting in Falmouth back in January, my friends and colleagues were eager to refer me to their favorite brokers. However, my family has known your father for over 25 years and there was no doubt that, if anyone could find me the right home, it would be Jim Foley. Well, actually you were the one who found me this great house. Your father is very fortunate to have someone with your credentials and professional background working with him. As it turns out, so was I. Your integrity, sense of humor, patience and optimism are reminders of why my family has enjoyed doing business with your father over the years. Your warm and friendly personality helped take the edge off those snowy winter afternoons spent looking at homes. When disappointment threatened to take over, your humor provided the perfect antidote. When I was barely able to tolerate my own confusion, your patience allowed me to find clarity. When my choices seemed limited, your optimism gave me the energy to continue looking until I found what I was looking for. Thank you for making my home search a success and for providing a warm welcome into the community."
Attorney Thomas A. Grossman
"I have on every occasion made positive comments regarding Foley Real Estate...especially when people say "YOU SOLD YOUR HOUSE"....a rare event these days and the credit belongs to you and your company. Your pro-active and generous marketing along with flexibility made this sale possible. My family and I sincerely appreciate your efforts and tenacity getting this transaction to closing. Thank you."
Judy Spinelli; Florida
"In my 35 years as a lawyer and businessman, I have worked with many real estate brokers on Cape Cod and throughout Massachusetts. Kevin Gagnon is the ultimate professional. He is intelligent, experienced and a strong advocate for his clients. No one knows Cape Cod real estate better than Kevin and no realtor is more dedicated to finding the best price and the best match for his clients whether they are buyers or sellers. I know because Kevin is my broker of choice and has represented myself and my family in four sales in the last three years."
William Golden, Esquire
Hi Kevin, "We were very happy to have you representing us in our house sale. It was a stressful time for us, with a fixed move date and a toddler, but you helped us get through everything fine. We spent a lot of time selecting our realtor and interviewed several others that were referred to us before selecting you, and I think we made the right choice. You were always available when needed, easy to get in touch with, eager to sell, and ended up getting us a higher price than the other realtors thought possible (over $20k higher than another thought would be likely). Since our market timing was not good (buying near the peak and selling at a low point), we needed to get out as much as possible, and you helped us do this in a tough market. You also helped look after the house after we had moved, and I was happy to know that was taken care of as well. We'll happily recommend you to our friends needing a realtor in the future." Cheers, Peter and Karen Peter Mangiafico, MS, ME, Marine Biological Laboratory

"Both Missy and I wish to thank you for all of your efforts, both Pre and Post sale. In my 30 years of sales management and running a business, I've found that the true worth of a salesman is not measured by how he/she copes with the typical day to day issues but more on how they handle the tough problems that occur from time to time. You delivered not only in a tough market, but more importantly, in a tough closing situation. Thanks again. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Falmouth area. All the best."
Bill & Missy Cafferky
"My personal thanks for making this happen. Great Job !"
Tony & Anne Chinappi, Milford, MA
"We want to let you know how pleased we are to have done business with Kevin Gagnon. He is not only decent and honest, but a good friend to us trying to sell our house in a difficult economy. He kept in contact with us, always following up on whatever was happening with our property. We will always recommend your agency, and Kevin, in the R. E. business. We would also thank both of you so much for the cooperation withholding signs in this difficult time preceding our return from Florida. Thank you." David & Maureen Souter
It was a pleasure working with you as our Realtor in search of a summer home in Falmouth. From the first day we met, we felt confident that we could trust in you to handle a transaction for us. We appreciated your attention to details to ensure that the transaction was carried out in a professional, efficient and timely manner. We found the perfect home and neighborhood that we were searching for. We would highly recommend you to family and friends who are looking for a home on Cape Cod. Thank you again for all your help and hope to remain friends in the future. Dick & Margie Diaute
Our names are Elizabeth and Joseph Lupi. We recently settled into our ne Falmouth home that we really love and in which we expect to enjoy our retirement years. We owe this "find" to one of your top Realtor Associates, Kevin Gagnon. Kevin Gagnon is worthy of an A+ in our books for his extraordinary professionalism. By this we mean that his pleasant nature made him easy to work with. He listened to our needs and knew the small details we liked in a home. Kevin's financial background helped us to realize what homes we could afford. He informed us of all the possibilities that pertained to our particular budget. When Kevin met us for a showing, he would arrive abundantly prepared with plot plans, listing sheets and pictures so we could easily keep track of the homes we viewed. My husband Joe, and I, will gladly refer Kevin to our friends because he is the ultimate professional Realtor. Elizabeth Lupi
"Good Morning Tony, All is going well. Getting unpacked and hopefully will be up and running when the nice weather breaks. Have met some of the neighbors. Just love the place. The fireplace is a bit finicky so I am going to have a plumber look at it before using it for now. Think it is an older unit and do not want to take any chances. Other than that everything is perfect. Thank you again for the gift certificate. I used it to get glass hurricane candle lamps for the fireplace mantle. They look especially nice when lit in the evening. Home Goods is a great store and have been back many times. Thanks for your help with the move. It really was so pleasant doing business with you and your company. Hope all is well with you and your family."
