Ratings & Reviews

As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous to begin looking for my first home. I am very happy that the first home that I had an interest in had Laurel's name on the real estate sign sitting in the front yard. From the first phone conversation, Laurel made me feel like I was working with a friend rather than a real estate agent. Her interest wasn't in selling me any home but in finding the perfect home for myself and my son. Laurel's knowledge from working as a loan officer was also very helpful because she could explain to me the ins and outs of the different types of loans I could chose from. In the end, I had a very short time frame from when my offer was accepted to when I had to close. Laurel made sure I was prepared every step of the way. I recommend Laurel to anyone regardless of whether they were buying or selling and look forward to hopefully working with her again in the future.

Thank you, Sarah! It was my pleasure helping you find the right home. I know what a big move this "first home" was for you and I am honored that you put your trust in me. You really got a great house and knowing that you are happy with the home makes me happy and is a big reason why I do what I do. Lets stay in touch.

Bought a home in 2011 in Merrimac, Blacksburg, VA 24060.

Laurel is an excellent buyer's agent, having found for us a beautiful single family home very quickly in late fall 2011. She has a thorough understanding of real estate in Blacksburg, Virginia and does a great job doing Comparitive Market Analysis. She was professional, kind, and very helpful in dealing with our many requests and needs. Laurel was very knowledgeable regarding contract negotiations, inspection issues and closing. I would highly recommend Laurel Coffey as your buyer's agent in the New River Valley of Virginia.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Blacksburg, VA.

Laurel Coffey worked with us for a year. She understood what we were looking for, and showed us a range of appropriate houses. When the home that we bought came on the market, she recognized immediately that we would like it, and got us a viewing within 2 hours of the time that the home came on the market. She was patient and thorough in preparing for the closing. We would definately recommend her services as a buyer's agent.

Bought a home in 2011 in Merrimac, Blacksburg, VA 24060.

As a first-time home buyer, I would highly recommend Laurel as a buying agent. She's lived in the NRV area, so she understands the housing market very well. Her local experience helped weed out potential problem homes, help focus our attention to specific areas we might have liked based on our interests, etc. In the end, we ended up finding a house that Laurel hadn't recommended, but we expanded our search parameters without having told her first. She easily ran with it and immediately set up a tour, and helped facilitate visits to the house as often as we wanted. Her recommendations for a housing inspector was a wise suggestion, and all of her business contacts for repair estimates for plumbing/electrical/whatever were quite reliable. As far as negotiations went, I think we as buyers had an unusually easy time of it, as the sellers were very flexible. That said, Laurel communicated everything in a timely fashion, and made sure anything we were responsible for was made clear to us in order to avoid any legal problems. Our experience with Laurel as our buying agent was fantastic, not having any clue what we were doing. Extremely helpful, very professional, and inserted touches of personal opinion when it was appropriate. Highly recommended.

Sold a home in 2011 in Merrimac, Blacksburg, VA 24060.

We had our home advertised since July 2010 and had no leads at all by December 2010. at that point we decided to use Laurel's services. She was very agressive in her approach, and knew many people in town. We had 2 solid offers within two weeks, one conditional offer and one more offer came the day we accepted the best offer. We closed on the house within 3 months. The offer was much better than we expected and saved us lots of hassle. I am so impressed by Laurel's negotiation skills and connection pool.

Without Laurel our family would still be living across two towns. We finally got our lives back together.
