I was raised on the Northside of Cape Cod, living in Barnstable Village, Cummaquid, West Barnstable and downtown Sandwich. I attended University of Massachusetts/Boston graduating with a Management Degree in Human Services. After graduating I moved away and lived in various parts of the country. But I missed the ocean air and beautiful scenery of Cape Cod, and so I moved back from Arizona in 2003, as the Cape and it’s shorelines repeatedly beckoned me home.
My career as a REALTOR started in 2005 and I began working with many high end buyers to help them find their dream waterfront home. My local knowledge of the Cape, coupled with my dedicated and honest approach has continued to fuel my career. I am focused and dedicated to marketing and selling properties along the shores of Cape Cod and beyond. I have sold many homes all over the Cape and this experience has made me an expert on the coastal home market.
I love the waters of Cape Cod, from all the activities water offers, to the smell of the salt air, to the shimmer that is distinctive to the Cape. I’ve been told no where else in the world does water shimmer the way it does here. And, nothing else in life creates the relaxed happiness I experience when on my boat gazing upon the waters of Cape Cod, or when showing a property with a spectacular water view. What’s great about being a REALTOR specializing in water is that I get to experience all the types of water on the Cape on a regular basis. Every town’s scenery is uniquely different from Truro to New Seabury to Falmouth, to the Bay side.
From ongoing referrals and repeat clients, in 2016 I was motivated to expand my business and open Property Cape Cod Real Estate, a boutique firm where we always put our client’s best interest first. Since then, I’ve personally sold over $26 million in real estate. Our high level of dedication and integrity, along with our expansive client base and strong negotiating skills, makes us the right brokerage find you your perfect Cape Cod Property, or to get your home sold.

"Tia, the best Real Estate person I ever met. She was so helpful during my sale. She is very professional as a RE broker and very pleasant to talk to. Thank you, Tia!"Mike Y.
Parker’s River, South Yarmouth
"We purchased our first home with Tia six years ago and she has been a constant source of guidance and knowledge ever since. Anytime, day or night, if we need advise, we pick up the phone and Tia is always there to help. We recently purchased our second home with Tia and once again she went out of her way to make sure everything went as simple and stress free as possible. I am so thankful to have her to rely on. I no longer think of Tia as our REALTOR. I think of her as a trusted friend. Thank you Tia for EVERYTHING!!! You are one of a kind!"Martha B.
"I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks. I’m winding up my first summer at the house, and it’s been a great year! I want you to know, I feel that you couldn’t have put me in a better place: I love the house, the location is perfect for me, that’s where your knowledge and experience shine. The one small problem I had was resolved easily, but only because of your extra effort. If you remember, you made sure the service guy got in touch with me as I couldn’t get through to him. He also turned out to be very fair and a good guy, so thanks for that contact. That all happened six months after the closing and you were on top of it. I do have to let you know that I do have just one complaint, the summer went by way too fast and it’s all your fault! I bet you’ll try to resolve that too! Thanks again for a great business experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with you again. I’ve also recommended you to several people, I know you’ll take great care of them!"Bob L.
"I began browsing on the web as many of us do when looking for a vacation home on the Cape a few months ago. That is how I first met Tia; by stumbling across her website as I was doing my web search. What a lucky day that was for me. Tia is by far the best Realtor® I have ever worked with. She is organized, patient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around and, to work with. I live out of the area and had a very short window between finding the home of my dreams and closing on the house, all during the Christmas Holiday. Tia worked miracles for me and was a true lifesaver. She went above and beyond what any of us would expect or what any of us have experienced in a realtor. She kept me calm, happy and focused through what should have been a very stressful process. Believe me that is no easy task! I cannot say enough good things about Tia. She is the absolute best!"Gabrielle C.
"I still remember the great service and help you gave me in finding and buying my cottage. It’s been 4 years since I bought the cottage, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I just love the location and atmosphere of my place, and I wouldn’t change anything…Tia, I would definitely like to keep in touch, and sometime in the future, I just might be able to buy some more property. I am not a long time away from retirement (7-10 years), and I just may be in the market again to purchase some real estate. Again, thank you for remembering me."Steve L.
"A couple of years ago, my wife and I decided that we wanted to someday purchase a home on the Cape. We didn’t know exactly when this would happen, however we visit at least a few times a year traveling from Denver. We had a lot of work to do. As anxious people we started looking online for homes for sale. We were not ready. One home must have got our attention, and we made an inquiry. This is when we met Tia Lilly. What a find. Tia listened to us, as we explained what our plans for the future were. Boy, did she ever listen. We asked questions, she listened, we wanted information, she got it. We questioned ourselves, "Are we driving her crazy?" Tia insisted not. Instead we became friends that enjoyed each others’ company.
As time passed, we did what as needed to move forward. Earlier this year we found a house that would work for us. Tia made it happen. She not only made it happen, she made it so easy for us to close on the home. Now that we own the home, Tia is still making it happen or us. Living in Colorado, it is difficult to deal with everyday details of being a homeowner, Tia is still making it happen for us. If anyone looking to buy or sell a home, or is looking for an agent, (friend) look to Tia. "SHE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR YOU."
"Having purchased many homes in my life, I have learned that without the "right" real estate agent to look after your best interests, the process can be very stressful and difficult. Tia is an amazing agent. Her attention to detail and her ability to listen puts her at the top of all the real estate agents I have ever dealt with. We contacted her, explained to her what we were looking for and she went to work to find us the perfect home. She is extremely conscientious and detail oriented and did not stop working for us until every detail was taken care of right up to the point of closing. I would highly recommend her services to anyone buying or selling a home on Cape Cod."Jackie and Mitchell G.
"Thank you Tia for making our house purchase such a pleasant experience. From the first time we spoke on the phone, you understood what we were looking for and my time constraints. I appreciated the fact that you always checked the houses before we went to look and when we found the perfect house, you were there to make sure everything was done on time with minimal inconvenience. To be sure, it was not an easy closing, since we had to deal with an estate settlement two days before the closing. Once again, you stepped up to the plate and talked me off the ledge when I was ready to jump! Your professionalism, knowledge and willingness to go out of your way, makes you one of a kind. Much continued success on your career and it will be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone who can use your services."Octavia S.
"Hard to believe, but Beth and I don’t usually attached ourselves with people we first meet. We’re observers of the heart, and often that takes time to discern. But your heart was easy to read. You wear it on your sleeve, and we are grateful you shared it with us. I remember the first time Beth met you and her reaction when she came home from that meeting. ‘We have to work with Tia,’ was all she said. And I never even considered second guessing Beth’s opinion. Because it’s always right. (Wasn’t that the good husband thing to say right there?) Our Tia Rose (we’ve named it that!) was the first thing we planted in our front garden, and it is doing well and thriving – it truly represents our friendship with you and we’ll care for it in the same manner. As we continue to clean and settle, cut and trim, we are always thinking of you… keep your calendar free for us end of summer when things slow down. We must have you over for an afternoon tea. You are the salt of the earth, Tia. It is we are the fortunate ones to have met you. And we hope you never forget that. With great love and appreciation."Beth & Troy S.
"I have given Tia Lilly the highest rating for all categories of professional skills to fully express my complete satisfaction with her assistance through the buying process, Not only did she assist in negotiation and sales arrangements with the seller, but also provided valuable contacts and facilitated home inspection and evaluation, property insurance and closing arrangements. This agent was willing to personally trudge through the snow of February 2015 to take photographs on site when we were unable to do this ourselves."Gary W. & Terry T.
