I've been practicing real estate for 25 years, 23 on Maryland's Eastern Shore. During that time, I've served the real-estate community as President of the Bay Area Board of Realtors and Board Member of the Maryland Board of Realtors and have served my community as a member of Shrewsbury Parish Church and the Chestertown Garden Club. Consistently among the top agents in Kent and Queen Anne's counties, I've represented buyers and sellers and good markets and bad. My goal is to learn about my clients; to listen to their ideas, cares, and concerns. I am a hyper local agent- let me put the power of my brand to work for you.
My Client Reviews
My lot was listed with Lisa @ Coldwell Banker in 2016. Against prevailing common knowledge of not keeping property listed indefinitely, I continued my listing with Lisa because of her many attributes as an agent. Her due diligence managed to keep my lot in the forefront of the local real estate market despite handling a large portfolio of properties.
Lisa stuck with us for over two years, while we looked at every new listing in Chestertown. She was very patient with us as we figured out what we really wanted. Finally, she found us the perfect house and helped us negotiate a fair deal under difficult conditions. This is the seventh home we have purchased and Lisa is by far the best agent we have ever worked with!

Lisa is a treasure. She tells it like it is, and I appreciate that. I trust her completely and enjoyed every transaction I had with her. She returns calls promptly, goes above and beyond, and was totally professional. This was my first home buying experience, and she was supportive throughout. Thank you, Lisa!
Lisa is absolutely a five star!!! She was a wonderful agent as well as friend. I met her 20 years ago when I bought my home from her, and she was tireless and imaginative in her selling that home a few weeks ago. She well deserves her reputation as the finest realtor in Chestertown. Even though we are friends, she was always realistic, honest, uplifting (when I despaired of selling ). I cannot say enough positive things about her.
Don't hesitate to use her services! She knows the area and the business and is direct and professional. She's very easy to work with and you can trust her judgment. The process was quick and easy with her team's experienced attention. I'm very grateful to them!
You can rely upon Lisa to know the market and get your house sold or bought, as the case and the market may be.
In the middle of a pandemic, my husband and I decided to sell our house. I asked a friend who had recently bought a house, and she recommended Lisa highly. I called her, and she came out the next day. Much to our surprise, Lisa told us that, despite the pandemic, it was a great time to sell a house. She was absolutely right. We had a 100+ year old, mostly restored Victorian on about 2 acres that we had owned for 43 years. It was the first house we ever bought and therefore the first house we wanted to sell. Lisa told us what we needed to do before we put it on the market, and most importantly what we did not need to do. She hired a wonderful photographer who took pictures that showed our house to its best advantage and put it on the market. It sold in two (2) days! for more than we asked for. She organized everything, so that we knew exactly what we needed to do and when. She knows the local market, and she knows what she is doing. She's quick to respond to questions and stays on top of all of the details involved in selling a house. I highly recommend her. She is easy to work with, highly competent, and she gets results. Quickly!

She was great to work with and even found mistakes from my loan office and helped save me money. Great real estate agent!
Lisa Raffetto was wonderful to work with from start to finish. She really knows the area and has a wealth of Real Estate knowledge. I think Lisa is the best Real Estate person in the area, and I would high recommend Lisa to anyone buying or selling in the Chestertown or any of the surrounding areas.
Lisa knows the region and patiently assisted us over about an 18-month period to find the right home. There was a learning curve for us as we got to know different neighborhoods, and Lisa was always willing to help us explore the possibilities. After the contract of sale was signed, we depended on her expertise and contacts to guide us through to closing.

Although Lisa represented the Seller, she assisted in bringing a very difficult closing schedule and price negotiation to a successful conclusion. We would definitely recommend her and hope to deal with her again if we have another real estate transaction.
If I could leave 10 stars I would! Lisa's professionalism and responsiveness is top notch. From the moment I spoke to her I felt a connection that I could relate to. Her advice and helpfulness in assessing my needs was genuine and greatly appreciated. Anyone who works with Lisa to purchase or sell a home will benefit from her expertise and experience.
I am so glad I have the opportunity to tell Lisa how happy I was with her service. She always arrived on time, courteous,and friendly. Lisa always gave me a heads up as to what I could expect ,what needed to be done and how we were progressing. She is a true asset to Coldwell banker's. I highly recommend her.
Lisa has worked with me for her two decades finding rental clients in Chestertown. She has been very helpful, especially in the processing of the rental paperwork, leases, etc.

Lisa is a wealth of information and knowledge. My interests were her priority. She answered all my questions and has guided me through selling my house then purchasing a new one. We closed on the same day. I couldnt have done it without her.

On a winter day in 1989, my husband came home and told me that we weren't going to have enough money to send our kids to college so he was going to become a realtor to make some extra money. At the time, my husband was a Rector at an Episcopal Parish in Southern Maryland. I told him he'd be a terrible real estate agent and that I would rather do it.My father was a real estate agent in Kent County, Maryland and before that he owned a property and construction business. His specialty was restoring...
