Cutler Real Estate asked Lise a few questions so you can get to know her better, and here are Lise's replies.

1. What is your professional/educational background?

I was raised in Magnolia and attended Sandy Valley Schools. I then graduated from The University of Akron with an Associate Degree. After getting married in 1980, I moved to Stow and began working in Personnel at The University of Akron for 7 years and then an Office Manager at Colonial Machine in Kent, OH, In 1992, I returned to the Sandy Valley Area to raise my children. I became a real estate agent in 2000 and was licensed with Realty One who was then purchased by Howard Hanna in 2008.

2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?

I have always loved looking at homes and following the real estate market. After selling a few homes and working with realtors, I decided to make the jump and give up my full-time job and go into real estate full time. I have been a full-time agent for the past 19 years and have been blessed to work with many wonderful people and help them achieve their real estate needs. Although it was scary to give up a full-time job, it was the best decision I've ever made.

3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?

I live in Magnolia with my husband, Mike. We moved to Magnolia after living in Stow 13 years. We enjoyed the Stow area but felt that we wanted to raise our two children in the same environment in which I had been raised. I also had my parents and sister and her family living in Magnolia. Magnolia is a small-knit community which is a part of the Sandy Valley School District. We felt smaller schools would be more beneficial to our children. In hindsight, it was the best thing we have done for our children as they received very good educations and were able to participate in many extracurricular activities and sports, being in a smaller district. The children have moved on but Magnolia is still a wonderful place to call home.

4. How do you spend your free time?

I enjoy socializing with friends. From Spring through Fall, I spend most weekends at Atwood Lake Campgrounds in our permanent camper.

5. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be?

  1. My home in Magnolia
  2. My cell phone
  3. My 3 dogs
  4. My camper
  5. My computer

6. In one word, how do you think your friends/family would describe you?

Lise was excellent to work with. We appreciated her sharing her experience and resources with cleaning out my parents home & listing it. She was very friendly & easy to work with. Open to any Questions & suggestions I had. She was prompt at getting back to us through texts, emails & phone calls. We were kept updated with each step. She made the process flow smoothly. I was overwhelmed & emotional about selling my parents home but Lise made it a positive experience.

Lise was very helpful was I was preparing to sell my house. She helped me as I had to do several home improvement projects prior to getting the house on the market, including names of painters and plumbers. Then the day came to list in! It sold in two days with a bid over my asking price! Lise was assuring and helpful at the closing. I could call/text at anytime with questions and got quick responses!

Lise was great. She is the most genuine person you will want to work with. From Financing to Inspections to Closing she was on top of every aspect. Any phone call, text or E-Mail was answered within minutes. If she was busy at the time - she always let us know she would get back to us. Just a Top performance from beginning to end. People have asked who our Realtor was - I was not shy to sing her praises. If we could give more than 5 stars, we would. We are pleased beyond belief.

We had seen Lise's signs at homes in our area for quite awhile. They seemed to go up and then down quickly. When we wanted to sell our home Lise was the first Realtor we contacted. After meeting with her, we knew we didn't need to search any farther. Her attention to detail and professionalism sold us on the spot. She walked us through the selling process quickly and in no time she had our house listed. In less than 36 hours from the listing Lise presented us with two full asking price offers. Needless to say, we were elated and closed on our property a month later. If you are selling or buying do yourself a favor and call Lise!!

I have worked with Lise for may years. I have had 5 transaction with her and she was great to work with every time. Lise was always more than helpful in getting answers for me if she did not already know them. She was vey patient with me when I was trying to find my last house. I had her take me through several homes and even one more than once. She is very familiar with the market and I was confident in what she told me with how she thought my last listing would sell and she was spot on. She sold my house within 36 hours. I will never work with anyone else.

Lise is a top-notch realtor with an extensive knowledge of the local area. We were out-of-town buyers, and she made us feel comfortable from day one. She made sure that the home-buying process was highly organized, leading to a nice and smooth transaction. She consistently goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are happy. I would highly recommend Lise if you are looking to buy or sell a home!
