07/13/2015 - Stacy Simpson Logan
Sold a home in 2015 in Fairfield, Lake Zurich, IL 60047.

I met Laura and Larry through a friend who had used them to purchase their first home. I had a home to sell, but didn't plan on putting it on the market for about 18 months. I asked them to do a market appraisal, so that when the time came to list it, I would have an idea of what had happened to the market in the last 18 months. Even though the listing was more than a year away and they had no guarantee they would get it, they put together a very comprehensive, professional market appraisal. When the time came to list it, I knew I wanted to work with Laura. She updated the market analysis and proposed the listing price, which I thought was fair. Her team created a lovely virtual tour that highlighted the features of the home. The staging she provided for my vacant home was tasteful and enhanced the quality of showing the property. Her team put together an impressive brochure for each prospective buyer to take with them after seeing the home. I was kept updated on a weekly basis on activity associated with my listing and competitive properties in my area. When an offer came in and there were issues to address from the home inspection, she was able to provide reliable, professional contractors to do the work. Laura was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her and her team for your real estate needs.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Grayslake, IL.

Laura was my anchor throughout the entire process of selling my home. With admirable patience, she explained each step of the process and answered every question I had. I think the most helpful thing she did for me was to go through the house and (in detail) explain to me what she felt should be changed to stage the house for its best showing - and she did this before we even signed our contract. I really enjoyed working with her and her team. Easiest house sale I've ever been through.  More Less
