Ratings & Reviews

We have been working with Laura Papritz for over a decade. She is like one of our family. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the industry and has incredible contacts. Laura also has amazing strategies for buying and selling homes and has a personal touch that can't be beat. She is fun and easy to work with and the exact person you want greeting buyers at the front door of your open house. I can't say enough about this agent. We will never use anyone else.

she was very nice and helped to buy our first house. Only thing I would change was the communication could have been better , there was entire weekends that we didn't hear from her but overall we liked her

Sold a home in 2015.

This is the second time I have relied on Laura and her outstanding skills to sell my home. Selling a home can be stressful however Laura provides sound advice, resourceful and she takes the stress out of the process. She is trustworthy, smart and has a wonderful sense of humor. I appreciated her voice of reason, professionalism, willingness to get the house inspection process wrapped up, and deal with tough issues head on.

Bought a home in 2015.

We were the first time home buyers, and when we first met Laura, we were still debating between buying a new home versus buying an old one. Laura took time to educate us the pros and cons of both those options. After deliberating a lot between me an my wife, we finally decided to go with a new construction home. Laura helped us get thru the entire buying process right from the day we booked a lot with the builder, till we closed. Closing date was about 10 months from the time we booked (due to builder delays), but Laura was available all the time to answer our questions. She is very prompt and knowledgeable. She even helped us find an insurance agent to help with our Homeowners Insurance. She is very resourceful and have lots of good contacts. She helped us find an experienced Home Inspector, and we are very thankful that we did an independent inspection even though it was a new house. Laura even helped us negotiate a few things with the builder that came up in the Inspection Report. Laura is very personable and I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy a house.

Sold a home in 2013 in Hobart, Maple Valley, WA 98038.

This is the second time we enlisted Laura to help with selling a family home. The home was more than an hour away and was inherited through an estate due to my mother's passing. Laura helped tremendously in dealing with the emotial and detailed transaction. It wasn't easy because of the distance and legalities, but Laura made it much simplier and handled it both professionally and with sensitivity.

Bought a home in 2013 in Hobart, Maple Valley, WA 98038.

We were new to the area and working with such an experienced, professional has been HUGE. Laura educated us on the area, community and school district. She was able to customized exactly what it was we were looking for not only in a home but in a community. Once we knew the area we wanted to be in, which was a small geographic area (approx. 5 miles x 5 miles) and very specific needs in a home, she customized a plan for our family. Laura is very efficient, diligent and resourceful in her profession and very personable, it was a pleasure working with her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Bonney Lake, WA.

We were recommended to Laura by our friend who had just bought his first house. We were expecting our second born and living with my in-laws while saving money to buy a house. The beginning of the loan process took longer than we anticipated because my husband is in construction, so we were in a hurry when we met Laura. She knew what we were looking for, our budget, and that we were in an "aggressive" search. She did a lot of work on her own to look for houses and combine our lists, met us and we looked at so many houses. She would find out as much info as she could for us on some of the houses as well to eliminate some from our list. The house we fell in love with was a short sale. She helped us format our offer to get a quick response from the bank. We wanted to close before the baby was born. Escrow messed up on the paperwork and she called our mortgage broker and whoever she could through the bank and Escrow to get to the bottom of it. She went over and beyond our expectations and she was understanding and compassionate about our situation. Buying a house is stressful, throw having a baby in the mix and it adds up. The baby came early and she was trying to stay in contact with the bank and Escrow in case we needed to sign papers while at the hospital. There were also certain things that needed to be done to the house for the loan to be approved. One was getting some water damage fixed in the bedroom, which she took care of for us. And some shrubs too close to the house needed to be cut back, and she went to the house to make sure that was done and cut some of it back herself because we had just had the baby. She was direct on her opinion on some of the houses that we looked at and loved how open we were to ideas and making a house OUR home. It was important for us to have someone who understood our rush and needs. She met and exceeded our expectations and we are so happy that we chose Laura to help us get into our home! It was a blessing to work with her!

Laura was extremely knowledgeable about the local housing market. She was sensitive to our needs and listened to what we wanted. Her commitment to getting us in a house was shown throughout the entire short sale process. She is dedicated to her clients and a pleasure to work with.

Laura was very helpful in helping us find our house. We felt she really listened to what we wanted and was on our side the entire process. Since we were coming from far away she would scout potential houses for us and give honest opinions about how we would like them. Her opinions were spot on every time.
