Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Springfield, MO.

We purchased our last home through Laurel and then 11 years later sold it through Laurel. I recommend her strongly. She is a consummate professional and a good friend. With her help and guidance we had our house ready to list and within 30 days had an accepted an offer with him $3000 of our listing price.

Sold a home in 2014.

Laurel is professional, thorough, and has a wealth of real estate knowledge. We greatly enjoyed working with her and wholeheartedly put our trust in her opinions and expert advice. It payed off as our home went under contract in just 3.5 weeks! She understands the modern marketplace in a way few realtors do. She went above and beyond by assisting us in securing the home we purchased under contengency out of state by writing us a letter of recommendation. We have and will recommend her to everyone we know in Missouri!

Showed home in 2012 in Brookline Station, Springfield, MO 65802.

A pleasure. Professionally and personally. Her honesty and kindness are a delight and we would recommend Laurel to anyone buying or selling property. There were times in our house search that other realtors would have been short fused with us but Laurel was patient and available even when our needs and price range would change. She was flexible and accessible and courteous, no matter what.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Springfield, MO.

Laurel is way beyond five stars. She's a human sparkler. We have an old home that was coming apart. The roof was falling in and we felt all the problems we faced were beyond us to fix. Through a dear friend, we met Laurel. She is a brilliant dynamo! She immediately went to work and contacted her retinue of experts to assist. One was a terrific roofer. When we listed our home, in short order, we had great interest. Thanks to Laurel and the work of the excellent team she's assembled, we now have a new roof and interior repair. We've always loved this historic house and have lots of happy memories here. After only a week on the market, we decided we just couldn't bear to lose it. We hated telling Laurel, of course, because she had worked like a beaver using considerable time and expense of her own to get it 'show ready' She had answered and responded to our every call and was always kind. When I did call to tell her we had decided to stay here, she said, "This is the best possible outcome." Incredible!!! She is uniquely the best! She's extremely smart and capable, but she has the added rare quality of placing the best interest of others before her own. We recommend her daily to any person who says, "real estate". As for our family and friends, we'd never consider working with anyone but Laurel. We love her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Springfield, MO.

I just completed a home purchase with Laurel. She also represented the sellers. I live in California, so she had to facilitate that additional complexity. There just aren't enough good things that I can say about her. She was professional, responsive, knowledgeable - and on top of that, she has great style and impeccable taste in architecture! She truly understood what I was looking for, after spending only 30 minutes with me. Hopefully I keep this home for awhile, but if I ever decide to sell, or buy another piece of property, I know who I will be calling.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Springfield, MO.

We used Laurel as our listing agent from a referral we received. Laurel's knowledge of the local market, specifically our type of house (1920's bungalow), is as far as I'm concerned, unmatched with other realtors. Her professionalism and masterful techniques demonstrated during our listing yielded 2 offers within the first 3 weeks, and closing 4 weeks after that, coming very close to our asking price.

As with any closing, there were small issues here and there and concerns from the buyer. Laurel was able to mitigate issues with ease, and provide resources and contacts to local contractors and tradesman when work was needed in a pinch.

Overall, she was a complete pleasure to work with, and I would recommend her without reservation to my friends and family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Springfield, MO.

Laurel was amazing, especially since we were first time home buyers and more than a little difficult to work with. Laurel really helped us through the process and ensured we bought a home that would grow with us. Our overall experience was great!

Thank you both! I felt like the house you chose was a great decision. I loved the kitchen size and the original restored cabinets. I hope you and your cute four legged kids have a wonderful first Christmas in your new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Springfield, MO.

Laurel's knowledge of the area is impressive. She was able to guide us through Springfield’s desirable areas with ease and grace. She was very informative of the areas that could be problematic, offering both pros and cons, allowing us to make an informed decision. That’s priceless! Her understanding of architect is remarkable, very beneficial when evaluating the dwelling. Her eye for interior design was also helpful, offering suggestions for small improvements that will increase resale value.

Not only is Laurel professional and knowledgeable, she is gracious and kind!

I would highly recommend her!

Thank you so much! I am visualizing you covered in white after scraping that popcorn off the ceilings. Can't wait to see the results of your efforts to pull the house out of the 1990's! Exciting! I sure enjoyed working with you two.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Springfield, MO.

Laurel was the listing agent on the house we found to made an offer on in the Rountree neighborhood. She was so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful on the two different appointments our family toured the listing that we decided to sign her to sell our house.

Her research and knowledge of the current market helped us position the price of our house realistically with comparable properties in our neighborhood. She studied our property and pointed out features that we could update simply to show our house in it's best light. Then Laurel shared the feedback of other agents and potential buyer showings to help balance our expectations and needs with the observations of those interested in our home to increase the chances for its sale.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Springfield, MO.

I have used Laurel both to buy and sell a house. She is, first of all, extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in our area, nuances and all, and has a particular love of older, historical homes, which I was interested in purchasing when moving to Springfield several years ago. She is also extremely savvy and experienced in the whole buying/selling process. When we purchased our home, it almost didn't go through b/c of an issue w/ the sewer line behind our house. She noticed on the seller's disclosure form that they had the sewer line serviced a couple of times a year or so and incredibly wisely suggested we have it scoped just to make sure everything was okay. It ended up having tree roots growing through it and needed to be replaced (NOT a cheap thing to be done) and after a rather tenuous negotiation w/ the sellers (which she navigated extremely well) we agreed to share the cost of replacement w/ the sellers. If it were not for her attention to detail and great negotiation skills, we would not have ended up purchasing the wonderful home we lived in for 7 years.

We are currently selling our house and called Laurel immediately when we decided to list it. Laurel has been available to us for questions, etc as well as given excellent advice on preparing our home for listing. She is very professional, has a professional photographer and graphic designer that work w/ her to put together unparalleled brochures and images of homes she sells. After looking at many homes on real estate sites and being amazed at some of the TERRIBLE images, or just mediocre to average ones, Laurel's presentation of the homes she lists is bar none. I cannot recommend her enough. Have always been impressed in every way w/ her.

Ha, ha! Agent's that take interiors with their cell phones need to be fired! Thank you so much! I care what my sellers home look like. If everyone did as much as you two did to get ready for the market than they deserve the best photographer and the best graphics. Way to go! It has been great getting to know your family over the years and I am pleased to be able to assist. Thank you so much!
