Robert A recommends Laura Bowman-Messick

Laura did an outstanding job handling the sale of our house. From preparing it to go on the market (while I was working 200 miles away in another state), to the closing, she always knew the answer, or the source for getting it done. I recommend her highly to anyone selling a home. Good job and thanks Laura!

Ayanna Jones recommends Ayana C. Smalls


In the years I have known and worked with Ayana, she has always been assertive, hard working, and determined. With that she achieves anything she sets her mind on accomplishing. She is very thoughtful and compassionate about helping others especially serving her community. When it comes to real estate, Ayana is like your very own personal private shopper who is familiar with your wants and needs. She has a way of syncopating with your expectations. Ayana is also very insightful and will be your strongest advocate as a buyer or seller or both. Even though we are out of state, my husband and I intend on consulting Ayana to assist us with finding the right agent for our next home purchase.

Tiffany recommends Ayana C. Smalls


If you want someone who will give it her all to the job, pick Ayana Smalls. She is a positive, honest, knowledgeable, go getter that makes makes it happen. You give her what you are looking for and she will find it. After learning about my 60 minute commute, Ayana helped me with my plan to relocate to Charlotte. That knowledge helped me in finding a place. With any goal she makes, Ayana sets out to achieve it. When I’m ready to get a home, I am going to her because of her positivity, honesty, knowledge, and goal oriented mindset.

Laura with Berkshire Hathaway worked with me from mid-April identifying the right property to meet my needs.

Russell Gimson recommends Melissa Zimmerman


Melissa delivered on all fronts. From general positioning advice, managing the seller and getting us to closing. Her market knowledge and professionalism helped us simplify what could have been a difficult transaction. Thanks for all she put into our home sale as I’m not sure we would have done as well without her. We have worked with other agents before and she was exactly what we needed for this transaction. Highest recommendation for her if you are selling your home in this market.

Stephanie S. recommends Laura Bowman-Messick

To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is in regard to the service I received from Laura Bowman-Messick who assisted me in my first home purchase. After working unsuccessfully with 3 previous realtors, Laura got me into my first home. Although I had numerous time constraints, Laura made it work. I told her what I was looking for and the places I wanted to see and she made it happen. It was very important that Laura was flexible, due to my lack of availability. Laura was able to rekindle my excitement for real estate and was able to get me into my first home within 3 months of working together. For that, I am forever grateful!
Thanks Laura!

Jessica Courtney recommends Melissa Zimmerman


We received several recommendations for Melissa Zimmerman so we decided to meet with her. From the moment she walked in to our house she put us right at ease. She told us what she could provide and how she could help. She is very responsive and answers any questions we have. She is with us through the whole process helping us with understanding loans, lawyers, inspections, staging and more. She is open and honest and you can trust what she says. I highly recommend her for anyone who is buying or selling a house.

Melissa has been monumentally effective for us selling our home. She has been on top of every detail, timely (if not even ahead of time) and wonderfully organized. She has really taken a lot of the potential stress out of our selling process.

James & Kathy Romelli recommends Laura Bowman-Messick

There are few times, especially in these days, when one person goes “beyond the call of duty” to make a welcome impact on other people’s lives. This was the case in regard to our experience with Laura Bowman. We believe such people, like Laura, should be recognized for their outstanding performance.

In the first week of November 2013, my wife and I drove cross country (in a large truck with our car on a trailer) to buy a house and settle in North Carolina. Not doing our homework and knowing very little about the areas of North Carolina, we ended our journey in Hickory, NC. All of our personal belongings were put in storage and we temporarily settled in an extended stay in Conover, NC Needless to say we were worn out, knew no one in the state and we were using Pentagon Federal Credit Union Relocation Service to help us find a house. To make a long story short, Pentagon Relocation got us together with Laura Bowman. Right from the very first phone contact, Laura made us feel like family. Those feelings only increased each time we met to view listings as Laura went out of her way to find us a home, Even though we had a limited budget, Laura told us that would make no difference to her efforts and she proved that over and over again. Laura’s constant help and home buying advice proved priceless to us. The day we finally found the house we wanted, it was a Home Smart House located in High Point, NC and bids for the house would be ending that same day. Laura drove home to get the needed paperwork then drove to Conover, NC (arriving at 10 p.m.) to have us sign the documents and got our bid in at 11:45 p.m. that night. Because of Laura Bowman’s outstanding efforts we are now enjoying our new home.

We would highly recommend Laura Bowman to anyone (no matter how small or big their budget) to use in finding their home. A person like Laura Bowman is a treasure to have in any organization.

Mike Frausto recommends Laura Bowman-Messick

I have never done a relocation and was not sure what to expect or how to handle the purchase process. The team of Kurtis Lowdermilk and Laura Bowman were informative, committed and flexible to my needs and conflicting schedules. They kept me informed and included every step of the way. They were committed to making sure they understood what I wanted and helped me get it. Though I hope I never need them again, there is no doubt, if I ever decide to search for a new home, they will be my first choice.
