Sold a Multiple Occupancy home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Malden, MA.
As first time home buyers, we contacted Laura to help us in our search after being greatly impressed with her website and an initial call. Our search on the North Shore quickly lead us closer to the city. While it was outside of Laura's usual listing area, she stuck with us to help us find exactly what we were looking for. Laura came with us to many open houses and set up private showings in a very competitive two family market, always keeping our wish list and budget in mind....even when we couldn't. She gave us much needed advice but remained neutral at all key decision points. She was patient and understanding as we looked at a variety of properties. Without Laura's experience, tact, and the time she took to get to know us, we may not be as happy in our home as we are today. We highly recommend Laura to anyone seeking to buy or list a home and we hope to use her again one day.
Laura Hall was great to work with - very professional and knowledgeable about the north shore real estate market. We were first time homebuyers and we had a lot of questions. Laura always answered them thoroughly and helped to successfully guide us through the buying process. Throughout, the offer, purchase and inspection process, we know that Laura put in many hours on our behalf.
My husband and I both work in the city, so our schedules were complicated, but Laura was available when we needed. And she was easy to work with via conference call or skype when we couldn't get to the north shore to meet with her in person.
Most important - Laura listened to our wishlist and worked with our budget. She did a great job of showing us a variety of properties in our price range. She talked through the pros and cons of the properties we saw, thus allowing us to easily recognize our dream home when we found it. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning on buying a house in the north shore area.
Laura understood our needs and put a lot of time and efforts to make sure the properties we liked were in good condition as well as a great fit for us. She has excellent knowledges of the market. As first time home buyers, she guided us through every steps. We will work with her again to buy or sell our next house and we recommand Laura 100%. She works harder than anyone else, she is always available. We can tell she loves her work and offers the best service.
I met Laura while attending an open house where she was the listing agent. I was so impressed with the detailed knowledge she had on the house, and her follow-up, that I asked her to list my house when I put it on the market a year later. Laura is thoughtful and took the extra time needed to learn all the details of my antique house. She's hardworking, putting on several busy open houses, following up with attendee's after each one and always making herself available for last minute requests for showings. My house went under agreement in 60 days; fast in today's real estate market. Laura is a pleasure to deal whether you are a buyer or a seller. She has a thorough understanding of the real estate market in this region and her expert advice was invaluable.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $450K in Sudbury, MA.
Laura was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely attentive, flexible, thoughtful, prompt, responsive and understanding, and we felt she was genuinely interested in finding the right home for our family. Building that trust and relationship was key to the success of the home-buying process for us.
Laura was always prepared for our visits, she printed up documents for us to read and about the homes we would be seeing on any given day, and would print up maps and any other documentation that would help in our search. Another quality of Laura that we appreciated was her ability to enter a house and think creatively about what could be changed to make it better in the long run. Her experience also came to aid us on a few occasions where we would have overlooked a key structural problem without her assistance.
Laura was also very professional, prompt, and detailed in her dealings with the agents on the other side, a testament to her work ethic. We wholeheartedly recommend Laura without no reservations whatsoever and would be happy to speak with anyone about the service we received from her.
Laura helped us in both selling our property and buying a new one.
On the sales side, in these challenging real estate times, having a best broker on your side is not just a function of getting the best deal, but in this market can be the difference of selling your property or not at all. With Laura we had several offers in the first two weeks of listing when similar properties in the area were languishing on the market for months or longer.
When it came to buying a property, although we had lived in the same town for 5 years it was only with Laura by our side that we realized that no matter how savvy and educated buyer you think you are, it is not until you meet someone like Laura that has the true local knowledge, that you realize how much more there is to know about buying a particular property.

Laura was simply fantastic – from the moment we first called her, she treated us professionally, catered to our needs, and did everything in her power to help us find the right house for us, including setting up MANY showings on short notice and helping us to narrow down our criteria to figure out what we really wanted. Laura’s extensive knowledge of the North Shore area helped us determine where to look and investigate neighborhoods and towns. Once we chose a property, Laura’s expertise was invaluable in guiding us through the offer and purchase process. She went above and beyond in every aspect of the transaction. We would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a true real estate professional. Her warmth and caring has made her feel like a part of our family and helped us find a house we can’t wait to move into!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $400K in Wenham, MA.
Laura helped to make the home buying process a comfortable experience. She provided her thoughts on every home we visited, both positive and negative even if they contradicted our initial thoughts. We appreciated this because we didn't feel like Laura was out to "just sell a house". Alex and I felt like Laura was part of our team and we would certainly recommend her to others.
