Laura made purchasing our first home completely stress free. Her knowledge, experience and professionalism made everything from financing to closing date a seamless process. She made herself available to us for questions day or night, and always promptly responded. We would highly recommend Laura to friends and family.

I will preface this by saying I've known Laura for many years as a friend, but this was the first time we worked with her as our real estate agent. It was legitimately the easiest process I've experienced. She broke down the near overwhelming information into bit-sized, easy to digest chunks and walked us through the entire process. She quickly set up areas for searches and was very responsive whenever we wanted to go see a house or wanted to change the search parameters. When we finally found a house we liked and made an offer, Laura went over all the reports and inspections with us and helped us determine what to ask for in terms of fixes, and when things weren't done correctly, she was on top of it, making sure the seller and their agent made things right for us. It was an absolute pleasure working with Laura and I can't recommend her highly enough.

Laura is a fantastic agent, she worked extremely hard for us when we were looking for a home. I felt I was pestering her with emails and texts about properties, but she gladly got the information I needed to make an informed decision. I’ve recommended her to everyone I know who’s looking to rent, buy, or sell a home because I know she is the best choice around.

It was pleasure working with Laura. I never felt pressured into making a decision, she was just good at providing me with useful info to make an educated decision. She was also very responsive and proactive during the search process. I came in from out of town to look for a place, so she set aside time three consecutive days to drive me out looking at house, which I really appreciated.

Laura is a joy to work with! Definitely the best home buying experience we have ever had. She is very hardworking, professional and courteous.

Laura is the real estate agent that everyone hopes for. Being a first time buyer, we had no idea the amount of work that it would take to close on a home. That being said, Laura was there for us at crucial times and always made sure that things were going as planned.

One example of her great work: The week of closing, we were informed by our mortgage company that we needed to have our well water treated. Laura made quick calls and got everything set up for us. She definitely helped to keep what could have been a stressful situation to a minimum.

Ever after we've closed, she's checked in on us and given us helpful tips and advice on maintaining our new home!

Laura was incredibly helpful in my search for a new home. I have little to no experience with looking for homes, so when I needed to move I wasn't really sure what to do or where to look. I spoke with Laura and gave her a basic idea of what I was looking for, and she was able to quickly find me several places that fit all my requirements. She clearly explained all of the pros and cons for each listing and helped me find the perfect home.

After we found the listing I was interested in she continued to help me throughout the whole process. She guided me through each step and continued to be available whenever I had any questions. I was originally dreading my move, but Laura made it a fantastic, stress-free experience.

Laura was our realtor when my wife and I were looking to buy our first home, and we couldn't have done it without her! She helped us through the entire process, which can be overwhelming for a first-time buyer.

Laura knew all about the local neighborhoods, and which ones were a good fit for our desired location and price range. As we were viewing homes, she was able to point out positives (such as upgraded finishes) and negatives (like being close to a busy street). These are the kinds of things you don't think about when you're looking at houses for the first time.

When we found a house we loved and were ready to make an offer, Laura helped us get the house! She guided us through the negotiations and what to expect when making an offer. When the offer was accepted, she walked us through everything we would need to do for closing. It was a quick closing period - only 30 days! - but Laura kept everything on track. Now we own a house we love, and we couldn't have done it without Laura!

Laura was very good in providing area expertise and knowledge to new-comers in the area.
She also provided her personal experience that really helped us know more about the area and also the processes in buying or renting homes and provide feedback on different neighborhood to give us a better knowledge in making decisions.
Looking forward to work with Laura.

It is hard to put Laura into words. Laura is one of the most kindest, caring person I know. She is always willing to help her teammates and clients. She really cares about her career and clients. Laura always goes the extra mile in every aspect of her life and her clients. I've seen Laura personally visit competing properties just to make sure her clients were getting the correct price.

Laura did a great job assisting us in our search for our new home during our relocation. Laura listened and had a lot of patience when searching for our new home and brought some very insightful questions to the table when it came time to go to the negotiation table.
