“My husband and I worked with Alyssa to buy our first house and we couldn’t be happier. She really took the time to learn about our lifestyle and what our home needed to be. Like most people, we wanted it all but our budget was tight. She managed to find us a little mid-century gem in an up and coming neighborhood that we really love. It was in gorgeous condition (we’re not particularly handy) and the yard was perfect for my husband who is a gardening enthusiast. It matches our style perfectly and suits all of our needs…including an awesome basement for storing our garden goodies. She was patient, enthusiastic and was able to leverage her vast knowledge and experience to ensure there were no unhappy surprises after we moved in. I recommend her to first time home buyers, mid-century enthusiasts…or really anyone at all.”

“I worked with Alyssa when I listed my very period perfect vintage home. She is incredibly knowledgeable about architects, styles, eras and pays careful attention to the details. The flyer she designed for me was so beautiful that it was a challenge just to keep the sign stocked! She was exceedingly helpful through every part of the process – her advice and assistance was invaluable. I wish she had been my realtor when I bought the place! When I am ready to purchase another house, she is absolutely the only realtor I’ll work with – she pays such careful attention to what her clients want and think is important. I know she’ll find me a house that is the RIGHT era in a good neighborhood with the important, kitschy vintage details that I *have* to have.”

“Alyssa helped me purchase my first home. After patiently spending endless hours with me to find just the right place for my son and I, she breezed me through what could have been a lengthy and challenging short sale. Her knowledge, support and forthright honesty made the process fun, interesting and sometimes even an adventure. If I had it to do over again, it would be Alyssa every time.”

“Alyssa Starelli helped me with a home purchase last year. She is the best kind of agent. She listened to my needs and wasted none of my time looking at properties that were out of my price range. And I was looking for cheap! In a certain area. Agents work on a commission, so this was not a lucrative sale, however she treated me as if I were her best client. Every time a new listing became available with potential she took me to see it. And it took awhile, but she hung there. She used her extensive knowledge in neighborhoods and architecture to guide me towards a good investment. She pointed out things that could become a problem. It took almost a year, so at times I felt pretty discouraged that we would succeed, but we found it! I am now living in a home with the size, area, quality and price I was hoping to find.”

“If you want a midcentury mod home this is the gal you need to talk to . When I interviewed her on the Cocktail Nation radio show I knew straight away that this gal is an expert.”

Raves about the website:

“I must take a minute to say you’re a breath of fresh air. For a very long time I tried to find web pages like the one you have. Having grown up in Portland during the sixties and early seventies I truly enjoy anything “Atomic”. I saw your ad in Scoot magazine and Im glad I looked into it. Thanks again for a great site and if I ever move back home I’ll look you up for a flat.”

~ Rich Goughnour

I love your site! I make it a habit to check out your pic of the week often and dream of owning an atomic ranch home someday. I also visit your link on lotta-living and click on the Rehab ‘d Beaut pictures for inspiration. Thanks for putting together such an authentic, informative, and fun website!”
