I came to the Pioneer Valley in 1984 from the Berkshires and Southern Vermont to attend the University of Massachusetts where I received a BA in Anthropology. While living here as a student I rapidly fell in love with the area and it’s rich academic and arts community. As the daughter of artists I have a keen sense of the importance of supporting the arts and enjoyed my years of running an Art Gallery here in Northampton from 2009-20013. The art and music communities, along with the diversity and tolerance of the Pioneer Valley makes this area a welcoming place to live, we proudly call it “The Happy Valley”. I have lived in the area for over 20 years and chose it as a vibrant place to raise my family.
I’ve been a full time Realtor since 2002 and I am a member of the National Association of Realtors and a Member of the Pioneer Valley Association of Realtors. The process of buying and selling Real Estate can be a stressful and exciting process. I bring my years of experience to the table when working with my clients, and I have a wealth of professional contacts and a true enthusiasm for the area, which adds to my strengths as a successful Realtor.
If you are looking to buy or sell your home I would be happy to help you through the process. In addition to working with buyers and sellers in the sale of real estate, I also work with landlords to help them find qualified tenants for their rental properties. Being a Realtor is often like being a match maker, I enjoy helping people find a match for their properties and helping people find their perfect home.
Jessica pulled off the herculean task of selling my house, at asking price, in three days in the middle of the worst housing recession in decades. Jessica exercised some serious savvy, great negotiating skills as well as creativity.
I would like share with you my experience with my Realtor, Jessica Lapinski of Delap Real Estate. Jessica spent a year with me looking for the "right house" and I couldn't be more grateful for her knowledge of the area, as well as for her always cheerful and optimistic attitude, no matter how dejected I might have started to feel. Finding a house can be very stressful and Jessica was always there trying to make the process easier. If you are looking for someone to help you find the right house, I highly recommend her.
