Laurie has sold a couple houses for us and we also purchased from her. She always gives us her opinion on what she thinks, but lets us make our own decisions about the property. If we ever decide to sell and buy again Laurie will be our realtor.
Laurie was very helpful in our home buying process when we moved from one state to another. She helped us find our perfect home. I would recommend her to anyone I know looking to sell or purchase a home.
Showed home in 2012 in Shrewsbury, Shrewsbury Township, PA 17361.
I first contacted Laurie in July 2012 to help me with my search for a home. I was surprised by how quickly she returned my telephone call, and impressed by her knowledge of the Shrewsbury area and the neighborhood details. I found Laurie to be a “matter of fact”, friendly, and professional realtor. Over the course of the month Laurie provided me many listings that met my search criteria, and was always willing to take the time to show me the properties. Although I visited many homes, she was patient and I did not feel any pressure to make a decision. I, being new to the PA area, was not familiar with the different taxes, and Laurie was able to explain these to me in a very comprehensive manner. I will be using Laurie in my next real estate transaction.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in York, PA.
Laurie is with you from start to finish. She never stops working for you. Her ambition & expertise goes a long way. When she shows your house or has an Open House she checks in with you as soon as the door closes. You are never in the dark.
Selling your house is her top priority.
Bought a Single Family home in 2000 for approximately $150K in Stewartstown, PA.
Laurie helped us find and secure our current home. She was with us through every aspect of the buy. She lived two houses away at the time and therefor needed to be on her game totally. She was respectful and highly knowledgable and I have recommended her many times.
Sold a Single Family home in 2002 in Manchester, PA.
My husband and I worked with Laurie Houseknecht multiple times. She helped us find the perfect house both times. She was fantastic to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a smooth process in buying a home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $150K in Red Lion, PA.
Laurie is excellent at cutting through the nonsense and getting the results needed. If your request is not possible or out of line from reasonable, she will tell you and explain why. She is very good at guiding you through the best possible outcome for you given the situation and can/will explain everything. She believes that you always have the final say and will support you even if you do not follow her advice. And, if things get extra challenging due to your decision against her advice, she will work twice as hard to get everything on track for you.
In short, I am referring to when I had a private meeting with the sellers of the house I wanted to buy. (Their selling agent was dropping the ball and really making a mess of everything) Laurie suggested against it as it is not normal protocol and things can go bad. Fortunately the meeting went well and Laurie continued to support me through the rest of the process.
It was my first home purchase but not my first realtor. Laurie took a lot of time to explain everything to me in a clear and concise way. I would not hesitate for a second to have Laurie represent, help and support me again! Her no-nonsense attitude is very refreshing and really needed these days. She really does know the realty world, how it works and how to look out for you. With Laurie you couldn't have someone better or that cares more on your side.
Thanks for everything Laurie!
