“Dan helped us find the perfect house, at the right price, in the ideal neighborhood 18 years ago. So when it came time to sell our home, there was only one choice and that was to list it with Dan.  Selling the home we loved was hard but Dan helped us through the process every step of the way. His expertise and professional approach got the job done while his attention to detail made the process go smoothly.”

"Dan Lyons came recommended to me by several of my colleagues who purchased their first home through him and who were more than satisfied with their experience working with him. From our very first meeting, Dan put this nervous ‘first-time homebuyer’ at ease. He was knowledgeable, patient, and confident that he could find something within my modest budget that I would love. We visited several properties together and I learned very much during that time. I looked forward to our house visits and learning from Dan's expertise. Dan was attentive to my needs and quickly came to know exactly what it was that I was looking for, helping me to solidify my own distinct vision of ‘home.’

“Regardless of our extensive search, Dan never pushed me to ‘settle’ for anything. I found some great places and made a few offers, but I kept getting outbid due to the competitive market. I couldn't budge on my price and I started to get discouraged. Then Dan gave me a call one morning after he attended a brokers' open house. He was excited to show me a place that he knew I might love--I had to move fast! I agreed to see it that evening as the sellers’ open house was scheduled to happen the next day. When I walked into the house and I knew in my gut that it was home-- I made an offer for the asking price and my offer was accepted. The open house was canceled. The timing worked out perfectly and Dan really made it happen! I could not be more thrilled with my new home and I could not have done it without Dan. Excellent house. Excellent price. Couldn't be happier.”

“We have known Dan Lyons for many years personally, and more recently as a professional Realtor for Hammond Residential. He guided us in the process of converting and selling a condominium, half of our house, through a series of challenges with timing, renovation work, and other issues.  Throughout the process Dan was informed, professional, attentive to detail, and keenly knowledgeable about the market and the neighborhood. He has a well-honed network of support services and contractors that we could call upon, if needed, and he was very responsive to all of our concerns and questions. He is honest, open, patient, and dedicated, and we always felt he had our back. Should another opportunity present itself to buy or sell in Brookline, we would not hesitate to call on Dan again. We count him as a friend.”

"Dan Lyons of Hammond Residential helped us find our ‘dream’ condominium to downsize into from a very large old house filled with four decades of possessions. The problem, which initially looked insurmountable to us, was that we found the condo prior to starting the process of downsizing and then selling the big house.  Dan put together a strategy for us and then he, and a wonderful team of individuals that he assembled, worked closely with us to carry out every step – from financing and purchasing the condo, to emptying, staging, and marketing the large house, to selling it quickly and at a very attractive price.  We are so grateful to Dan, and we can recommend Hammond wholeheartedly.”

“I have had the privilege of knowing Dan Lyons for twenty plus years on a personal level. He is an active, caring and concerned member of his community. He has participated in numerous charitable and community programs.

“Five years ago my wife and I became empty nesters. After living in Brookline for thirty years, we decided to sell our house and downsize. Dan was who we turned to for help when we decided to make this major decision to move.  From the beginning, it was plain to see that Dan was a true professional with extensive knowledge of the real estate industry as well as the local market. He walked us through the process every step of the way. He operates with the utmost integrity and honesty and had our best interests at heart from the very beginning.

“I would highly recommend Dan  to anyone looking to sell or purchase a house. It was a true pleasure working with Dan.”
