As a first time homeowner, Laurie was extremely helpful and a great teacher when it came to knowing what to look for and what to avoid when buying a home. Her kindness and personality made it so easy to feel comfortable in doing such a big purchase.

Laurie was absolutely amazing to work with. She was very prompt and efficient with the process. Her response was a lot faster than I expected with this crazy market and she made us feel like she was all ours. We were able to see multiple houses at a time and her knowledge for houses is outstanding. You can see and feel that this is her true passion!

Looking for a realtor that will be with you every step of the way and way further? Laurie is THE ONE. We relocated to MN three years ago and rented for more than 2 years looking for our place with no success. Someone referred us to Laurie, a quick call, ducks in a row. Long story short, we found the house we were looking for and got the deal even with higher bidders against our offer. Almost a year past and she’s still in contact checking how things are going. We love Laurie!

Working with Laurie has been an outstanding experience! This is the second home she has helped our family find and she has never disappointed us.  From the multiple showings to the informative communications, negotiation discussions, and great follow up, the process was extremely smooth and stress free. Laurie even went out of her way to contact a homeowner she knew who might be interested in selling, just to help us find the perfect home. Laurie's integrity, knowledge and professionalism make it easy for us to highly recommend her.

I'm so glad to have known Laurie. She is the best realtor agent and a professional person who has lots of ideas about homes, comparing, and guiding us through our closing process day. We wouldn't know what to do without her help. Our first-time homebuyer is the absolute best experience with her. Definitely recommend her to anyone who is in the process of buying a home, because she has the best communication skills, patience, and is a joyful person to work with. So grateful for her help. We couldn't have done it without her.

I had the stress of being a first-time homebuyer. Luckily, Laurie came to my rescue. She explained every step; negotiated my offer effectively and was always there for me in the entire process. Never left me alone... never! She listens, she understands, she works to get results, she fights your case and even gives you great insights about which things can make it or break it. I strongly recommend Laurie to anyone without hesitation.
