In Summer 2013, Laura Dubinett helped me sell my house in Kensington. I first contacted her early in the year when a storm caused a neighbor's tree to fall and wreck part of our landscaping. She reviewed the damage, wrote a letter to the neighbor's insurer, and helped strategize getting a settlement and deciding what should be fixed and what should be left as is for the buyer to do. All this was before I signed a contract with her. She excelled at helping me make the critical choices of what needed to be corrected and improved on our older home and the damaged yard. I was overwhelmed with the work and would have spent a lot more time and effort on it. It did require cash upfront to do the fix-ups, but ultimately that was recovered, and more, in the sale price. She was helpful in the strategy and timing the market for the sale. Laura set up a schedule for doing the work. Calmly and patiently, she kept me on track to prepare the house for sale. We had an excellent outcome for price and timing of the sale.
