With sales being very strong in the last few years we need more properties to sell!
When selling property, any company can give you the proverbial 3 “P”s of real estate:
Put up a sign
Put it on the MLS, and 
Lacy Realty goes that extra step with the 3 “E”s  of real estate: Experience, Education and Expertise. We strongly feel that modern technology and old-fashioned service are not mutually exclusive. Our company's paradigm includes striving for accuracy and quality in our listing information and photos. “Quick & Slick” is not Lacy Realty’s mantra.

We are Lacy Realty!

 "We could not have asked for better representation than we received from Bill Lacy and Lacy Realty. Over 20 years ago Bill helped us to buy and sell a previous home, and there was no question that when we were ready to buy a new house he would be our first call. When we were ready to progress from online research ( was a very helpful resource) to looking at houses, we called Bill. Initially we looked at some homes that were listed at Lacy Realty, but were also interested in others listed at other brokerages. Bill had told us he could arrange with other brokers to show us any house we were interested in, and carefully explained the differences between a listing broker and a buyer’s broker. We were more than happy to have Bill’s help no matter the role he might play. In the end we purchased a home that had been listed with another broker, and having Bill available as our buyer’s broker made the whole process a very smooth one. He was always there for any questions we might need answered, contacted the owners’ broker to arrange anything necessary, and advised us in all aspects of making our offer, the details of the sale, and what we needed to do for the closing. He provided any information we might need, even if we hadn’t known to ask for it, and his encyclopedic knowledge of the local real estate market was invaluable. Although we dealt mainly with Bill, Penny Bogardus and Alex MacKinnon were also helpful and supportive. We are extremely pleased with the experience we had with Lacy Realty, and would highly recommend their services to anyone interesting in buying a home in the Gouverneur area."  Dana and Marilyn Putman


"I couldn't have done it without [Bill] and Penny. Living out of state, you were my eyes and ears, advocating on my behalf. You both made a stressful situation easy and effortless on my behalf; I can't thank you enough and I am very happy with the outcome. Given the chance, I will recommend Lacy Realty to anyone buying or selling a property in northern New York."  Meg


"We were very happy with everything you did. When we put it back on market, we will be calling you." Mark & Sue


“The exceptional services of Bill Lacy and Lacy Realty made it possible for me to purchase my vacation home on the St. Lawrence River.  Their motto of “We’re Open Until You Close" truly speaks for itself.  Their personalized service, around the clock availability and understanding of the real estate market is unsurpassed.  Whether you have a question about inspection, a concern regarding your new mortgage calculation or an issue with closing, Bill is there with you all the way, up until the last T is crossed on the closing documents.  I would highly recommend any buyer or seller to use Lacy Realty when considering the purchase or sale of a home. I’m truly glad I did!  ---Leslie LaMacchia
