Lisa Godwin, an England native, is a business graduate from the University of Portsmouth with a concentration in marketing. She brings a refreshing dose of British humor, overwhelming enthusiasm and a keen eye for design and architecture to Gibson Sotheby's International Realty.
Lisa understands that buying a home is one of the most important achievements in a person's life, and as such should be treated with the utmost care and respect. This philosophy coupled with her negotiating skills and extensive knowledge of the Boston and Cambridge markets has resulted in her being a highly respected agent. She is always available to personally assist clients with all of their real estate needs.
Prior to real estate, Lisa worked as a Consultant with a London based boutique Executive Search Consultancy leveraging her experience gained as a marketing graduate within the pharmaceutical arena.
Lisa currently resides in Cambridge where she lives with her husband and son. In her spare time she enjoys tennis, skiing and international travel.
We bought a house with Lisa in one of the most competitive markets! Lisa started out by taking us to a few houses to get a sense of the type of property that we were looking for and keyed in on aspects that we were keen on. She was incredibly patient with us as we looked for houses for over two years and we now live in our dream house, which I honestly don't think we would be in without her. She knew us well enough that when we waffled, she asked us the right questions to get us back on track. We never felt pressured and truly guided to our little piece of paradise.

Lisa helped us find a house in the chaotic Cambridge housing market. She was so helpful, personable and extremely dedicated to helping us find a place that suited our unique wants and needs. We had a fabulous experience with her. Along the way, she became a good friend!

Lisa is very professional and results oriented. I would reccomend her to anyone. She gets the jobs done and makes it seem easy to sell your home.

I have known Lisa Godwin for many years as a contractor for her and many of her clients. She has always been extremily profesional,honest and aggresive.Lisa's attention to detail is what seperates her from others in her field. Working for her clients after their transactions allows me to hear the many great compliments. I would highly recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell a property.

Lisa was always a positive influence during a low sale time of year. She had creative solutions to overcome the limitations and challenges our home sale faced. She was professional, cheerful, honest and her level of experience were great assets during a trying time for our family.

We sold a home with Lisa in Arlington, MA. Besides being incredibly personable, she listened to our needs, timeframes, etc and worked very hard to sell our house. Ultimately we sold the house in 4 hrs at full asking price! A tremendous result in a still recovering market. I can't recommend Lisa highly enough and am happy to speak with anyone considering her services.

Lisa is one of the most business savvy, strategic, practical real estate agents I have ever worked with. She always advises with great candor and is very down to earth with a great sense of humor. I can't think of a better real estate agent on the planet. She gets a infinity star rating from me!

Lisa is a delightful person. I also find that she has a keen sense of what her clients are searching for. We had a great experience finding our current home through her efforts. I cannot more highly recommend a real estate professional.

Lisa was extremely patient with us during our extended, and rather unfocused, home search. She gave us great advice in a very tough market and now we're living in our dream home. She always made time for us, even when we requested to see multiple houses at the last minute. Also, she's just a genuinely nice, interesting and funny person and we continue to enjoy spending time with her when the chance arises.

Lisa is a detail-oriented realtor who gives a personal touch to the clients and have a quick respond to the client's needs. Very sharp and effective and never looses the sight of the objective. She is very professional, an outstanding asset.

I have had the pleasure of working with Lisa when I had hired her to represent me for the purchase of my home in Somerville, MA. She knows the local market very well, is knowledgeable and showed a great deal of professionalism through every step of the path, which otherwise would be a tortuous one for a first-time home buyer. I recommend her to anybody who wants to buy or sell their property, as she would put you at ease with her personality and experience.

Lisa did a great job working with us throughout an extended search process that resulted in a great condo purchase experience. We would recommend her to anyone looking in the Cambridge/Boston area and plan to use her again in the future.

Lisa exceeded all of our expectations. She was incredibly professional and reliable. When we decided to sell our house, it felt very daunting, but as soon as Lisa came on the scene, everything felt manageable and the whole process went incredibly soothly, from staging, to photographing, to marketing, dealing with the banks and accepting an offer. We had one open house and we got the offer we wanted in a day. As a service, it really doesn't get much better than that! We could not be more thankful and are so appreciative for everything Lisa did for us. And always with a smile!

We really lucked out when we found Lisa. Three years after purchasing our Medford condo at the peak of the market my husband and I were concerned about our ability to sell it at a time when the market was at its lowest in decades. We turned to Lisa for help and not only was she able to close on it within 3 months, she somehow managed to sell it at a profit, both of which were incredible feats at the time. Lisa was professional, so easy to work with and always, always had our best interests in mind. She is the whole package and I couldn't recommend her services more!

Lisa is simply a great real estate agent. She was our seller's agent. She guided us from the beginning and ultimately when we decided to put our house up for sale, she had it up on MLS within 2 days, and held an open house within 4. The house was sold in 2 weeks for a reasonable price. We recommended Lisa to our neighbors and she sold at least 2 of their houses quickly as well. I highly recommend Lisa.

Lisa was great at getting us into the house of our dreams. A place we are glad to call home in a great location and neighborhood. She got us as First Time Homebuyers and was very helpful in 2005 when we bought our first condo; and then again when we used her again in 2009 when we purchased our first house.
Amy Britos — Mar 08, 2013
We had a fantastic experience buying our house with Lisa. She is incredibly professional, knows Cambridge inside and out, and managed to make the process feel very simply and straightforward which I know it is not, through her attention to detail in managing the process. I would highly recommend Lisa as a realtor for anyone looking to buy or sell in Cambridge (she also knows other areas, but we were only looking in Cambridge). Meg

Lisa not only helped us with the purchase of our condo investment in Somerville, but she has continued to provide information on the area's real estate performance. We truly appreciate her time and energy.
