My family and I live in Des Moines, IA. We have been searching for a house in Florida for almost five years now. When ever we contacted an agent that was provided they either ignored us because of the out of state situation and some just simply didn't put forth the full effort they could have offered to find a house that met our needs. The experience searching for our dream home was very stressful and frustrating. At that point we about lost hope in ever buying a house. One day we were looking at houses and we found one that was truly amazing. We found Laurel as the listing agent and so I gave her a call, explained the situation we were in and she was so quick to provide us with the best assistance that I was fairly shocked, it felt too good to be true. Although our offer wasn't accepted with this house.. she was accepting of us being in a different state, very professional, caring and unbelievably helpful. She immediately started looking for houses that were in the market that would meet our requirements. She asked specific and thorough questions to understand what we really wanted and listened to everything we had to say. She's a very good listener and she is not the type of agent where the sale is more important. We had a chance to meet with Laurel in person and she is an excellent, talented and very experienced individual with the best expertise in the field she is in. After five years we bought a house with Laurel in less than a month! All in all, our experience with Laurel has been above and beyond. I would recommend her as an agent to absolutely anyone that is looking to buy a home!
