When I decided to make a cross country move, with my family of seven, it was my first out of state endeavor. I did not know who to trust, and really did not understand the demographics, or the social culture of my destination. Alicia filled in the answers to my query, and to my concerns. She was very prepared for our showings with a plethora of information on the properties that we were seeing (plus alternative options). She also had a great awareness of the geography, social aspects, and cultural make-up of the homes within her business market. She took a personal approach (As she does with all her clients) to understanding my family’s needs, desires and wants; comparing them to the appropriate demographics, and making the transition as seamless as possible.
Before meeting Alicia, on her website; many realtors online within the Florida area, sought my business; however; the level of seediness, fast wheeler’s, and dealers that ensued from my online search was prolific. This caused me to hesitate before pursing my goal. Until, I spoke with Alicia, she was a breath of fresh air, and a relief. The rapport, credibility, and trust established from the onset were immediate; yet, it is continued to be substantiated through time.
Finding Alicia Lammersdorf with Illustrated Properties online was a complete blessing. Alicia is the only realtor I have ever met who has embraced business morality, and ethical principles completely within her business.
Her motivation is to educate, as well as, address the needs of her clients which are a rare commodity in today’s society. Especially, if one considers the financial struggles our economy is facing presently. She places her client’s interest first, and her own interest on the back burner to ensure that her client’s needs, and desires are fulfilled.
If I were rating a movie, I would give Alicia two thumbs up. Alicia is a diamond in a ruff. She is not only principled, client focused, and ethical. She is also efficient, proficient, and a forward thinker within her industry. She has the unique ability to understand, and connect with her clients’ needs bringing the phrase,” A Client Centered, Personable Approach”, to life, to reality.

Now that I've had a chance to catch my breath, get settled into my new place and gotten through half of the Holidays, I need to take the time to Thank You.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the trouble you went through to walk me through all the paperwork for the Short Sale. You made sure that I understood everything any why they needed so much information. You dealt with Bank of America for me, which in itself lowered my stress level by leaps and bounds!
You found me a wonderful couple to buy the condo and they offered the Bank a very fair price. Once, the Bank accepted the offer I started to breathe again. The closing was well run and went smoothly. Illustrated Properties and you have made my life so much easier. I will recommend you and Illustrated Properties to anyone I know who either wants to buy a home or sell their property.
Thank you again. Sincerely,

Alicia really took the time to understand what I was looking for in a home, and ultimately found my family the perfect fit. She was incredibly patient and kept at it until we found the right home. Her patience also extended to my two young girls who accompanied me on most of the showings!
Her contract negotiation skills are wonderful, and she does her homework on the neighborhood comps to make sure the houses are priced correctly. It was really helpful to have the comparison report that she provided before making an offer. On top of all that, she has an eye for aesthetics and had great suggestions on fixing issues that I found with houses. We are forever grateful for help in finding our new home, and I would recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.
Buyer/Miami to Boca Raton /2010
When comes to purchasing your dream home, nothing’s more important than having someone knowledgeable on your side to help with such a complicated process. I am very grateful for Alicia Lammersdorf. She is a very professional, kind, assertive and a resourceful individual with a wealth of information. From day one, helping me search for items on my must have list for my first home, she was very present in every step, smoothing out the confusion and easing my nerve when things seemed overwhelming. It is very refreshing to come across someone who has a passion for their profession and very effective in seeing the process through. I cannot begin to thank Alicia enough for the many advice and knowledge shared. The beginning of a lasting relationship, there is no one else I would turn to for my real estate need.
A very thankful homeowner,
"Alicia fully understands client's needs and truly knows the market. Seldom do you find an agent who is honest, extremely conscientious, and driven to succeed while at the same token does not compromise her client's needs to achieve her own. Alicia is excellent at listening to what her clients need and brings her expert knowledge of the South Florida area and market to the client to get results. She is of the highest integrity and enjoyable to search properties with as well.
I can honestly say that she is one of the most hardworking and dedicated Real Estate agents I have ever worked with. I recommend Alicia without reservation as your next Realtor in South Florida."
Buyer/Boca Raton, FL
I am writing to express our sincere gratitude for the work you've done in our behalf. We couldn't imagine a more professional, concerned and dedicated person than you.
This is the second real estate deal you've completed and probably the most important to us. There were so many complications from a bankrupt owner to a bank that imploded. After 4 months, it seemed as though this never was going to happen. How would we have lasted without your continuous encouragement? Clearly, knowing you were in our corner bolstered our spirits and kept us in the game as you dealt with lawyers, brokers and others who were behind the scenes.
Now having just closed on the property this week, we are still walking on air, pinching ourselves that this really happened. And as long distance homeowners, your tireless efforts in our behalf never end. Just knowing that the locks were changed and you have put a lockbox there for some of the trades, makes us rest at ease knowing that the right people will gain access.
There really is no way we can thank you for all your support and concern except to inundate you with our friends who want properties in Florida, and there are many as you know. It will be our ongoing mission to keep you busy with clients and better yet, profitable in sales.
Your forever grateful clients and dear friends (and prospective innkeepers of The Hartman House, Delray Beach, FL),

Bill and I want to thank you for helping us find EXACTLY what we were looking for in Delray Beach. Doing this long distance was a challenge, and each time I flew down you made sure that I saw every possible home that fit our criteria. You always accommodated my schedule and it was always such a pleasure to spend time with you. Your upbeat personality, great knowledge of the area and true desire to make your clients happy are tremendous assets .Despite the challenges we ended up with a second home that we will enjoy for years to come. Looking forward to dinner during our next visit and to working with you again to find our next place!

Alicia was more than a real estate agent. She was an angel in disguise. She sold my sister's apartment in the worst of times. It needed all sorts of work before it was ready to be viewed and she hired the people and supervised them, I live in New Jersey and could not visit Florida. Alicia took care of everything dealing with all the minutiae that ordinarily I would have had to do. I can't praise her enough and I hope she continues to be as successful and helpful as she is.
MS/Seller/Highland Beach, FL.
I can highly recommend Alicia Lammersdorf for all those interested in buying or selling real estate in the Florida market. As a former client I can testify to her capability, honesty and knowledge. She works hard to satisfy all your real estate requirements.
It was a pleasure having you represent us in our recent purchase of 321 Flamingo Lane. Your professionalism and work ethic was exemplary.
You impressed the both of us with your knowledge of the business and meticulous follow up to every detail. You made yourself available to quickly answer all phone calls and e-mails and your presence at the closing showed us that you cared. We won't hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends and acquaintances that are looking for a great realtor.
Joe and Ann Marie Dentino
Alicia is one of the most patient, hard-working realtors I have ever met. She does in-depth research and shares her wealth of experience and the results of her research with clients in a super-organized way that my wife and I found very helpful. We are new to the Florida real estate market, considering a move from New York, and we needed a lot of background, history, info about neighborhoods, types of houses, current marketplace, and much much more. Alicia gave it all to us in a neat package and patiently showed us a multitude of houses based upon a series of searches that got more refined as we learned. FABULOUS! I recommend Alicia to anyone looking to buy in the Boca Raton, Palm Beach County area, in Miami or anywhere in between."

We want to Thank you so much for all your hard work and never giving up on us. I know our situation was almost hopeless – but you stuck in there even when the market was not our friend. We were going through a horrible situation in our personal life and you were our only hope. There were other realtors that we had consulted, but they wanted a quick pay situation. I know with you even through the end, that is was not so much about the money, but taking care of us and selling our home. We appreciate all the red tape that you went through to make this sell take place. My husband and I are very thankful for all your efforts and most of all for selling our home and keeping us updated and finding qualified buyers through your endless connections. We have no problem referring you to anyone who is looking for a very professional and friendly realtor. You are the Best!!!
Thank you for your generous attention and help. Our home was SOLD by Alicia Lammersdorf.

With love and admiration,

Look, here’s the bottom line - I live in Atl and I needed someone I could trust in South Florida. And believe me, I have been through a number of people I couldn't. But Alicia came along and just the confidence and the results I have gotten from her has been more comforting and forward moving that I could have believed. On top of that, she is very prompt to respond when I email or leave messages. She doesn’t always have the answers but she lets me me she will get the answer. And she does!!! What more can you ask? I am very grateful that she is working with me
Seller/Boynton Beach, FL
Alicia is a very personable individual that I have no problem recommending. She assisted us with the leasing of a house in 1 WEEKEND! As a corporate move we needed to get a house in Boca Raton, FL and fast! We could have never done it without her. She was a real pro and has continued to assist us after the sale as well. I have no problem recommending her to you as a person of high integrity and as an expert in her field.”
Tenant/Boca Raton, FL
"Alicia came highly recommended. She is an excellent Realtor and a great person and thanks to her my husband and I are looking forward to a better life in Florida. I have been recommending her to all my friends who are ready to retired and to others as well.

Buyers/New York to Delray Beach, FL
"I am a real estate attorney with almost 30 years of experience with an office in Boca Raton, Florida. I have known Alicia Lammersdorf for about 15 years and am pleased to have worked with her in the real estate field for the last several years. I am extremely impressed with Alicia's work ethic and tireless work on behalf of her customers. She understands in this very difficult real estate market that a transaction will not occur on its own but rather only through hard work and diligence on her part will a deal finally come together and close. Alicia does not take "no" for an answer...she will work a deal continuously until she can find the person to say "yes" and bring the transaction to a successful conclusion. In addition to her work ethic, I have found Alicia to be highly moral and honest in her business dealings. She works solely in the best interest of her customers, sometimes at the expense of what would be her best interest. Her personal integrity is without peer. Not only is Alicia unique in her professionalism and business acumen, but she also has unique personal qualities which assist her with foreign nationals who seek to make investments in the Florida real estate market. She is fluent in English, Spanish and Italian. She has lived and has been educated in other countries and is thus familiar with different cultures and nationalities. This enables her to assist customers who may not be familiar with Florida real estate procedures as they may differ from procedures in their home countries. Like all realtors Alicia can assist her customers in the sale or purchase of single family residences and condominiums, but she also has extensive experience in short sale transactions and transaction dealing with distressed properties. I would highly recommend Alicia to anyone seeking honest and reliable representation from a real estate agent with no reservations whatsoever."
Attorney James Reyer
Alicia was a pleasure to work with and we can give her our highest recommendation.
She is very patient, knowledgeable, and honest. She also has a great personality.
She is fun and warm, yet always professional.
After an extensive search and as we were giving up hope, we found a dream house at the right price. Alicia is also a skillful and thoughtful negotiator.
She has the experience and passion to find your dream home.
Audrey & Fabian
Buyer/New York to Boca Raton 2013
I recomend "Alicia Lammersdorf as one of the real professionals in her industry. Besides being totally reliable and honest, Alicia has mastered many of the complicated legal aspects of selling foreclosures and short sales that the majority of agents do not understand. In so doing, she streamlines the bureaucratic process inherent in these sales and avoids endless tie-ups of her clients' funds. This is one great real estate professional."
Business Owner/Seller/Buyer/Brazil to Boca Raton, FL
As you know, this was not an easy time for me especially since I live in New Jersey. It is great to know that I was able to hand over to you all of my problems with my home in Florida and in the end you stayed true to your word and closed before the end of the year. You were amazing and I truly THANK YOU for all of your hard work and professionalism. I look forward to giving you referrals in the future and working with you in other deals. Enjoy your New Year's as you are well deserving of an evening of festivities.
NJ/Seller/Delray Beach, FL
Let me start by saying that I meet real estate agents every day in my line of work. I truly mean it when I say that you are one of if not the hardest working real estate agent I know. You deserve a lot of credit. Your E-mails on the weekends, holidays, etc. great tips, home ownership advice, updates on trends, etc...is really good. I wish you continued success and will send any referral that I come across your way.

In the time she has represented my friend's properties she has shown herself to be creative, tenacious, cheerful, understanding, patient and a great friend.
She is up to date on all the most recent trends in marketing in and out of the internet.
She is the consummate Real Estate professional.
I would recommend her heartily to all my friends and family.."
