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
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.
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.
Laurel Silk is an excellent real estate agent. As an long time customer, Laurel acted as my buyer agent, seller agent and rental listing agent. Her knowledge and good sense of market server us very well.
Laurel is an AMAZING agent, very professional/knowledgeable and a beautiful person to do business with. We have been working with her for the past 12 years. Like wine...she has gotten better with time! We found her through a profile/home search... most like the Zillow visitors and was so impressed that we didn't use the relocation company's agent. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Dallas area and works with each customer like family. We have bought and sold a total of 4 homes with her and she never has wasted my time. She goes above the call of duty, like spending 4 hours with me in the showroom to pick out cabinets, floors, tile and granite. She will take your "wish list" and only show homes that fit YOUR needs not her commission. She spends your money like it is her own and works with other agents, as well as builders, for a win-win. She knows the real estate rules, codes and is your agent long after you have moved into your home. We now live in Houston and moving without her was painful. We continue to look for someone with even half her skill and expertise but there is only ONE Laurel!! Please feel free to contact me with any specific questions.
Laurel Silk represented us in 1997 when we moved to Plano and negotiated the deal on the house we still live in. When my aging parents were thinking about moving here in early 2012, I looked her up again. It was the same expert, professional service the second time. Not only is she good at the buying and selling aspects of real estate, she also knows a lot about interior decorating, repairs, etc. She can refer you to local service people like painters, plumbers, handymen and renovators.
I would recommend her to anyone that is serious about buying or selling.
Bought a home in 2011 in Lake Highlands, Dallas, TX 75206.
I would highlt recommend Laurel Silk. She took the time and energy to assist me in narrowing down not only my location of a home purchase, but, a home. She did not know that I would be purchasing since at the onset of our relationship I owned a home in the suburbs that was not on the market. I was told by other realtors that I should "contact" them when my current home was under contract. Laurel did not do that, nor, did she question or make me feel uncomfortable with my situation. I would highlty recommend her and will use her next time I buy/sell a home. Thank You Laurel for your commitment and dedication to what you love to do. Dawn
Laurel is an amazing agent!!! Her expertise in all things real estate is beyond compare. She helped my wife and I buy our very first home 3 years ago and our experience couldn't have been better. Laurel is unbelievably responsive; she responded to everyone of my emails within hours, if not minutes. I can't remember an instance where I couldn't reach her immediately via texting or a phone call.
From our very first meeting with Laurel, we were so impressed with her boundless energy, love of what she does, and her real estate knowledge. We told her what we were looking for in a house and price range and she would immediately start naming areas and even specific neighborhoods that would have houses that met our criteria. She told us on our first visit that it doesn't matter how long it took or how many houses we want to look at, the most important thing for her, is that we find a house that we will love.
She was true to every word. Since we have very specific criteria, we must have visited at least 50 houses with Laurel until we found our dream home. She was as enthusiastic at the 50th house as she was at the 1st house and never once made us feel rushed to buy a home.
After we bought our home, unlike most agents, Laurel kept in touch with us and made sure that we knew we could count on her for anything. She recommended a great contractor for some renovations we wanted to do on our home and her past experience as an interior designer was invaluable as we moved into our house and needed decorating advice. Laurel helped us pick out paint colors, furniture, and landscaping too!
To this day, we still call Laurel to get her advice and she's never led us wrong. We recommend her to all our family and friends and can't express enough, our appreciation for all that Laurel has done for us. She is absolutely fantastic!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $275K in Far North, Dallas, TX.
Laurel has been our agent for over 7 years. She has been a tremendous asset to me throughout the years as she serves as a "full service" agent. She has a reliable network of contractors, maintenance workers, and other service providers to support any home maintenance needs. I often seek her advice when I am making home improvement decisions to make sure that I am optimizing my resale value. She also serves as the "go to agent" for many of my friends and co-workers.
