My real estate career is based on pleasing my clients and making the very stressful process of buying and selling enjoyable for all. I realized recently that I had been selling for 18 years and that the time had gone by very quickly. My conclusion, I have the best career in the world because it allows me to spend my life meeting and enjoying new friends on a daily basis. I have the opportunity of sharing my experience to assist my clients in making the best decisions.

When working with buyers, I show between 50-150 homes and discuss the positive and negative features of each home and neighborhood. I don't mind if the process takes 3 months or 3 years. I want them to be happy in their new home. I also have an interior design degree and often work with my buyers for a month after the sale updating the home with experienced and reasonably priced contractors to turn the home from ok to aha! 

When selling , my first task is to suggest ways that will make the home more appealing to buyers. The first step is removing wallpaper. I stage the homes personally to neutralize and remove items to give the home the broadest appeal. My clients and I often spend 3+ weeks in preparing the home to sell. I've found that ,with the right preparation and a very intense marketing plan, my listings will usually sell in 30 days.

My clients are predominately referrals from the IT and medical fields. I'm experienced in selling all of Collin, Denton and Dallas County from Uptown to all areas North and West to DFW airport. I'm a Dallasite and understand the profile and priorities of residents living inside of  Northwest Highway (loop 12), 635, 190, 121, and 380.  I also have excellent financial and technological skills. 

I've been selected as a top Dallas Realtor by  D Magazine for the past 5 years. 

I look forward to an opportunity to serve you.

Ratings & Reviews

I have bought 2 homes and sold 2 homes with Laurel and each time I have worked with her she impresses me. Not only is she knowledgeable, she listens to her clients and only brings things that meet your needs. When buying homes she thinks about the local area and home so you have a home that you can resell. She is an intense negotiator who always gets a great deal. I would happily use Laurel again and would high recommend her to anyone looking for a great real estate agent

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Frisco, TX.

I've known Laurel Silk for over 17 years. She helped my late wife and me purchase 2 homes and sell 3 homes. I can say that Laurel really knew what she was doing. She wouldn't let us purchase just "any" house. It had to be a house that someday someone else would want to purchase. She was always looking ahead for us. It definitely paid off for us. Laurel will be my friend for life.

Bought a Single Family home in 2006 in Plano, TX.

Laurel was instrumental in buying our first home and we cherish the experience we had. We were referred to her by someone in the family. When we were looking to buy our home we were remote but Laurel did a lot of prior prep work for us - which made it very efficient for us to come down and finalize our home within a week. We had a lot of criteria (driven by regional, religious and local preferences) and she was super patient in incorporating all such preferences and coming up with a smaller list. In addition she walked us through every home in a lot of detail highlighting the pros and cons. When we finally found the home we liked we were extremely satisfied. In addition Laurel ensured that all the steps to closing were smooth (remember we were remote). She also went above/beyond to get appliances installed, kitchen work done etc. prior to our move in. Our association and friendship continues to last for 6+ years now and we feel proud to refer her to friends/family. We continue to tap into the network she has built of handymen, contractors etc. for all work we get done around the house.  More Less
