Lisa Albinowski
Coldwell Banker American Homes



Buying our first home during a global pandemic was unavoidable and insane. The saving grace we had to help guide us through this unpredictable and stressful journey was our realtor, Lisa Albinowski. Lisa is an exceptional broker who knows her stuff. She is knowledgable in every aspect of real estate, and most importantly, she cares. She cares about her clients and fights for them, whether you are the buyer, the seller, or both. She is organized, punctual and she never left us hanging. Messages and emails were replied to, phones calls were returned, and appointments to see property listings were all made that same day, if not the day after. We are fortunate that she came into our lives, and we are forever grateful to her, for her hard work and dedication in helping us find our home. It is without reservation that I highly recommend Lisa Albinowski to anyone in need of a real estate broker. You will not be disappointed. Cindy Pavlic 2/12/21

Lisa was available for questions and walked us through the process with careful advice. When we went into contract she did not abandon us and was there every step of the way until closing. In these days of aggressive selling tactics with multiple bids on one property, we felt protected and reassured. We are positive the only reason we are moving into our dream house successfully is because of Lisa. Note: She is very down to earth and my wife loved her! Thomas Mormile 1/11/21

My husband I were so fortunate to have found Lisa to assist us in selling our condo recently. We can whole heartedly recommend this truly experienced professional lady who is extremely qualified. She came prepared, knew the community and area, made helpful recommendations, was always willing to answer any questions we had, and go the "extra mile" in any requests/problems we had. Our Condo sold the first weekend in an open house. Lisa is so caring, she loves her work and it shows in in how insightful and dedicated she is. Although we live in NJ and were unable to travel to NY due to the covid virus threat, we had no problem trusting in Lisa's guidance. She made the process smooth and worry free. It was such a pleasure working with this lovely lady. We would highly recommend this uniquely talented lady to get the job done. She is the best of the best! She knows the business of Real Estate inside out. A priceless gift to provide her clients. We feel blessed to have benefitted from her expertise, and know anyone who chooses her services will not be disappointed. Fondly, Michael and Maria - 1/8/2021

Lisa was my realtor in 2 transaction, one to buy a home, and I was so impressed with her, that I also had her sell the home I was in. She had an open house on the day it was listed and I had 4 offers. I could not have had a better realtor. She helped me with everything in the buying and selling of my homes. If I should ever decide to sell, she will be the first I contact. You will not be disappointed with Lisa. Irene Kelly 12/24/20

Rated 5 Stars in: Local knowledge, Process expertise, Responsiveness, Negotiation skills

My husband and I interviewed four realtors in connection with selling our home. Lisa was the last one to be interviewed and she blew us away with her professionalism. She came prepared, knew the community including the history of the North Shore Beach Property Association. Presented a brochure which had many homes in and around where we were located. Added a photo of our house with a caption that read ‘Coming Soon.’ With pencil and pen in hand she walked around outside and inside , asked questions, jotted down notes in order to accurately describe and give interested people a full picture of the home. Her knowledge and negotiation skills sold our home in three days. Highly recommend Lisa she loves her work and it shows.12/19/2020 - Lizlicata, Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Rocky Point, NY.

Lisa helped me sell my house some time back. She was a treasure trove of information and guided me through each step of the entire process. From suggesting the necessary updates to be made before listing, coming up with the right price, to the day of final closing, she was always available and responsive, answering all questions and engaging with interested buyers. It was a pleasure working with Lisa and I would highly recommend her if you are in the market to buy or sell your home. Ritima Sood 12/15/2020

I found Lisa through a first-time homebuyer seminar where she spoke and answered questions. I was intimidated by the whole process as a first-time homebuyer, but Lisa really helped me along by providing information and insight as to what to expect. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the local market, pointing out how insane it was right after the COVID restrictions were eased in NY. When it came time to submit bids, she knew almost exactly how much over list I had to go which helped me be the top bid on 2 houses, giving me a choice. Lisa and her assistant Annesha were very prompt in getting me in for viewings and getting paperwork to me so it could be signed and submitted. During the viewings, Lisa was able to point out things I (being a stupid man) would never have thought to look for. I was really impressed with Lisa during the home inspection and final walkthrough of the property. She was very thorough in making sure I checked the functionality of every utility and that I was 100% comfortable with the findings of the home inspection. She even pushed back at times on the seller's agent and I really felt like she was my advocate, looking out for my best interests. It was a crazy housing market and me being a first-time homebuyer wasn't easy, but Lisa was fantastic the whole time, and now I own my first house. My thanks to her and her assistant Annesha. Paul- Purchased home on Gull Ave Medford NY 11763 in 11/06/2020 

Lisa is the most phenomenal Realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We decided to sell our Condo and of course needed someone with proper expertise. My first call to Lisa sealed the deal. She was helpful, insightful, and knew exactly how to price our property based on the comps in the area. She took her time and didn’t just tell us what we wanted to hear, but what we needed to know. The sale of our Condo was as smooth as can be, but not only did she make that possible, she also helped us win the bid on the house of our dreams. If you are looking for a Realtor who really knows what they are doing and doesn’t just yes you to keep the peace, Lisa is the one to go with! JSR Sold my condo, Ronkonkoma 10/30/2020

I cannot say enough good about Lisa's work with us! She was right by our side starting well before we even put our house on the market, through tying up loose ends after the closing. She consulted with us when we first planned to sell our house, helped us determine what things needed to be done  to put our home in the best light, and then managed the entire showing, negotiation and sales process in the midst of this pandemic! She was cool and calm through one crazy thing after another - because she's seen it all. Selling a home can be such a stressful experience, but having Lisa on our side helped us in so many ways and we are so grateful. We've recommended Lisa to several friends over the years and they've been so appreciative. There are a lot of realtors out there, and it's really special to find someone who is not only competent and dedicated, but who really cares.08/21/2020 Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Sayville, NY

Rated "5 stars" for Experienced, professional & extremely qualified. Made selling our home a walk in the park. Goes the extra mile in all aspects. Smith’s-Moriches, NY Seller, closed-Jan-2020

"Lisa was honestly the most caring and loving realtor! She walked me through all the steps of the entire process. Lisa took the time to get to know me and what I expected in a home prior to even showing me potential listings. I would definitely recommend Lisa to all home buyers!" MDR-Patchogue, NY Buyer-closed-Dec 19

Lisa was always reachable, and returned my calls super fast. Would highly recommend Lisa to sell or help you purchase a home. I did both! IW-Ronkonkoma, NY-Seller & Buyer-Closed-Sept 19

"Lisa is the consummate real estate professional. She effectively managed the sale of this property from start to finish, without a hitch. From the moment she walked through the condo, her wheels began to turn and the benefit of her years of experience became apparent. From minor repair suggestions to her careful screening of potential buyers, I immediately knew I was in good hands. The proof was in the pudding when the right buyer was found and the deal closed in a swift manner! shepsel-Ronkonkoma-Seller-Closed May '19

Sadly, due to health issues, my sister can no longer live at home, so it was time to sell her condominium. Lisa was recommended to us by one of my sister's caregivers. My sister is basically alone in Long Island, incapacitated in a nursing home. I work full-time in Connecticut and needed someone to help clear out the condominium, manage some repairs, and help out in any way possible. Lisa was a godsend. She held our hands from afar, hired and managed the people to clear out the unit. The necessary repairs were executed economically and quickly. Lisa personally packed up the remaining personal items, many of which were valuable, many of which I had no knowledge of, with care and diligence. Lisa far exceeded expectations and clearly went above and beyond what I could ever expect of a realtor. I cannot recommend Lisa strongly enough. She has integrity, and she does what she says she will do, on time, within budget, and much more. She cares. Huey- Seller- Closed Feb '19

Lisa has been fantastic in helping us find our perfect home, she has given us so much information and knowledge of how the whole process works and has been very helpful with every question and concern we've had. In the short period of time, we have been working with her she has shown us so much hard work and determination to help us find what we're looking for in our perfect house. William-Patchogue, NY 07.27.2016 

Made he experience of buying my first home stress-free and exciting! I wouldn't think of calling anyone but Lisa if I were going to buy or sell! Nicole G. – Patchogue, NY 07.18.2016 

I have known Lisa for about a year now and have never encountered anyone who works as diligently as she does. Lisa goes above and beyond for her clients in an effort to get them exactly what they want. I recommend Lisa to all my clients and to other realtors as well. Elinor M. – Islandia, NY 07.12.2016

Great experience, Lisa has been wonderful and very helpful with all our questions and needs thanks. William D. – Patchogue, NY 07.05.2016

Lisa was extremely helpful with the purchase of our first house. She was easy to get in touch with and responded to any questions or concerns promptly. We couldn't have done it without her. roxannehuemmer – Sayville, NY 06.21.2016 

Lisa was a Godsend to me and my family when my father passed away. My mother chose Lisa to sell her home soon after my father passed. Lisa was charged with selling an older home that was much loved but in need of repairs. Lisa understood the value and the issues with the property. Lisa offered important recommendations and solutions on things that could be done to make the house more salable. My mother had mixed feelings about selling the home she had lived in for decades. She was emotionally attached and at times difficult to work with. Lisa understood how to navigate through these emotions. One of her specialties is working with elderly homeowners. She helped my mother through this very difficult transitional period with compassion and understanding. I believe that Lisa's dedication and commitment and negotiation skills are what sold the property. She knew how to work through the issues and close the sale. After working with Lisa, I truly understand the value of a good real estate agent. I do not believe that we could have sold the house as quickly or for the price we did without Lisa. Kathy B. – Oakdale, NY 05.03.2016

It was an absolute pleasure working with Lisa. It wasn't an easy decision to sell my house especially because of the magnitude of work that goes into prepping for the sale. Lisa went over and beyond to make all information available that helped me in being prepared for the sale and guided me through the process all the way from pricing, staging for showing, negotiating offers to final closing. If you are considering selling your house, I would highly recommend you sit with Lisa for a consultation. Ritima S.05.03.2016

Lisa helped us find a house that suited us in size and met all of our criteria. She went above and beyond in service to us. She got us into our house and helped us over come few obstacles that pop up from buying a home. She was very professional and extremely communicative through all phases of closing. I have recommended her to anyone seeking to buy a home and will continue to do so. fred h. 02.02.2015

We were new to the house buying process, and definitely easily unsure and confused about certain aspects. Lisa kindly, respectfully, and sensitively walked us through every step and explained everything in detail. More still, she didn't act like a saleswoman out for her interests. Lisa made sure to explain and recommend what was in our best interest every step of the way. Unfortunately, many years later after many dire circumstances, we needed to apply for a short sale. Lisa again sensitively and patiently has walked us through no matter how long it would take and made it clear that she wasn't in it for her own profit. I can honestly say that she not only educated us through both processes, but also took a large amount of the stress out of it. We are truly grateful. suzieq p 02.28.2015

Lisa was amazing to work with. I would absolutely recommend her. She was always available when i had a question. She walked us through the whole purchase. We were first time home buyers with lots of questions. She was truely wonderful. mike c. – Holtsville, NY 05.11.2015

Lisa is a professional in every way. While she is doing her job she also makes you feel like a very special person. I have been out with several Real Estate Brokers and Lisa is the best of all. She is smart, caring and knows the business of Real Estate. ann g. – Bayport, Islip, NY 06.29.2015

Lisa is an amazing professional with incredible knowledge. She guided us through the entire process of the sale of our previous home, and the purchase of our "dream" home. Throughout the entire process she guided us step by steps in areas that we could have never navigated on our own. When issues popped up, as they inevitably always do, she was able to help us find quick, reliable solutions. She acts in the best interest of her clients and her caring is apparent to all that work with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, dedicated, caring professional that's committed to meeting the clients' needs. chcopp 03.03.2015

Lisa helped guide us through the process of buying our first home. She was always honest and professional and I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. jdessey – Selden, NY 06.29.2015

Lisa is very good in Real Estate, extremely knowledgeable and honest. I was pregnant and felt the pressure to find a house before the baby arrived. We spent the first few months of 2014 between realtors and not getting anywhere. We found Lisa and she literally found us our home that we are now in within a week! We will be using her again in the future to purchase another home. Thanks again Lisa! steoh

She really listened to what our wishes were for our new place and found us a property that fit our needs. Lisa was always available to answer my question, alert us as to what to look for and warn us of pitfalls. She made the process simple. We're totally satisfied with our new home. cardidesign – Setauket, NY 06.30.2015

Lisa was very helpful in explaining the home buying process. She was very knowledgeable about diffrenet towns and was able to offer us options that we wouldn't otherwise have thought of. czambonino 03.07.2015

Lisa is very knowledgeable. She is a hard worker and very helpful on giving pointers & advising us on tips to help sell our house. She guided us through the entire process. She listened to pur concerns and was able to answer all of our questions. Lisa cares about her clients and works for them. Annette D. – Farmingville, NY 04.30.2016

Lisa made it possible to sell and buy in one day. Of course, it took a few months to plan and execute all, but she guided me and was totally available through all. I highly recommend Lisa. cynthia l. 01.21.2015

As a first time home buyer, I knew nothing about the process. Lisa took the time to get to know me and learn my likes and dislikes. She was very patient, knowledgeable and informative. I have dealt with several other agents over the years and felt Lisa was the one who had MY best interest at heart. She was not about "making money." She always told me the truth and guided me through one of the most stressful times. I highly recommend her. Christine2804 02.05.2015

I contacted Lisa a couple years before selling our house. At that time she gave me extensive information but at no time pressured us into selling with her. When we were ready to put the house on the market, I relied again on her expertise. She was able to quickly get the house listed and within a couple weeks we already had a willing buyer who offered us more than we expected. I was very impressed by her professionalism and knowledge of the business. In addition, she treated us more as partners and friends rather than clients, and that was appreciated in those stressful times. stanfr 02.22.2015

Lisa helped us sell our house and buy a new home. She was professional as well as personable. She went out if her way to make sure everything went smoothly. We have kept in touch and will use her again when the time comes to sell our current house. clandem 02.23.2015

My daughter-in-law works for a lawyer and has much experience with closings. She highly recommended Lisa Albinowski and I am so grateful!It was a tough emotional decision to sell but financially make sense, and Lisa walked us through every step of the way. Her suggestions to make the home more sellable obviously worked well, and quickly! Within a few months we were out of our home and in a new one several states away. Lisa made this possible for us. She had several open houses, contacted every agent who showed the house for feedback, and was always giving us positive encouragement. I recommend her highly. huwmmwe315 02.02.2015

Lisa was a pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable of the market (rental and sale). She is upfront and honest, and was able to help properly price our co-op unit to drive immediate traffic. She was very responsive to calls, emails, and texts. Because there are several different parties & deadlines involved when selling or renting a co-op, Lisa's familiarity with this process and all of those involved was extremely helpful! alyross620 02.24.2015

Lisa is my Go-To Realtor! Her superior knowledge, honesty and integrity are key factors. She takes things seriously and is the best advocate for my clients. In my business I need to refer other professionals and make sure they will have my clients best interest as their focus... Lisa is that person. She has helped several of my clients with much success. Keep up the Great Work Lisa.. I am proud to endorse you! Lorraine Kimmey Professional Organizer/Owner Simply Organized Solutions. lkimmey8 02.26.2015

Lisa has done a great job helping me to sell my mother's home from out of state. She has stepped in to handle some issues that a seller would normally handle themselves (snow plowing, small repairs) and has maintained strong communication throughout the process. She is professional, knowledgeable and calm. I would strongly recommend Lisa. sadesalvo – Oakdale, Islip, NY 04.28.2014

LOVED this agent! She knows her 'stuff' and it shows yet she is down to earth and has a no nonsense approach when it comes to doing her research. She gets right to it. Lisa has a vast knowledge of what is going on in the communities she serves. And if she doesnt know the answer to something- she finds out! Additionally, Lisa has also helped me purchase a home in the past as well. tr8ceyanne – Oakdale, NY 05.23.2013
