Thank you Laura and Cindy for you help, Don't forget that I have 3 more daughters will may be looking for homes in the near future.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $200K in Pickerington, OH.

Laura and Cindy were very helpful when we decided to sell our old home and buy a new home. They showed us their market research so we could set a fair price for our home. They made suggestions to help the sale go smoother. They made sure that people were going through our house.

They shared their market research so we could understand the prices of houses on the market. They showed us houses that were in our price range, met our list of wants, and were on lots of the size we desired.

Laura and Cindy are a GREAT team! Having each of them show us the same house gave us all the information we could need! Together they have a quality and integrity that made the whole process less stressful and in fact enjoyable. Certainly when I sell my current home I will be looking for their support!

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $200K in Pickerington, OH.

Hi, this is Clint and Alicia. We were referred to Laura and Cindy by a family member. Our story still makes me smile when I think about it.

We were in our starter home for about 6 years and when we had decided to move after having 2 more kids and having out grown the small house in Whitehall. We contacted Laura and she was very eager to help. She came to our house to list that same week. During the listing and over the next couple days they helped us identify all the items that would help our house be more appealing to a buyer (cleaning, clutter, curb appeal...ect). We put our house on the market about the middle of May. Not expecting it to happen real quick, we took our time looking for the next home. I guess it was the combination of good pictures (the panorama that Cindy did was cool) and the other items, while we were on vacation less than 30 days later we had an offer!! NOW we where extremely excited but we hadn't started looking at houses yet other than online! Three days later Laura had about 12 showings set up for for us. I think she knew which one we would pick because the very last one she took us to was like walking into a dream! We immediately fell in love and proceeded to write an offer. So, all said and done 2 months from listing we were closing on a sale and a purchase with in 2 days of each other. ?? Like I said. It makes me smile.

Laura and Cindy were great and we would recommend their services to anyone and will definitely be calling them when we decide to move again...if that ever happens!!

Clint and Alicia

I would absolutely recommend Laura and Cindy to anyone buying or selling a home in the central Ohio area. Their expertise, knowledge, and dedication to the sale of our home, and the search for our next one has been beyond satisfactory. Simply put, they are THE BEST!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Columbus, OH.

Laura and Cindy were extremely helpful and supportive in the sale of our home and search for our new one. We had very specific wants in our purchase and they were so positive and patient as we searched for the property that met our criteria AND gave us the, 'this is it' feeling we wanted. They both made us feel confident and informed every step of the way.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Lancaster, OH.

What would we have done without Laura and Cindy? My husband and I dealt mostly with Laura in 2011. My husband put his house on the market with Laura (referred to us by a close friend). Laura actively advertised in a broad-range market area and showed the house to the serious and the maybe not so serious. The house had been totally renovated, but there were still several challenges in making it "just right" for the "just right" buyer. Laura dealt with all of the typical responsibilities of an agent and went far beyond. Shortly after listing the house we moved to another state, 900 miles away, presenting her yet another challenge. Laura didn't miss a beat…. she pursued prospective buyers and kept us well informed. I truly believe her knowledge, patience and persistence and her upbeat personality were key in getting a firm contract on my husband's house. After closing she advocated for the buyer in settling a last issue with a third party worker. When Laura needed to be away, Cindy stepped in an kept the momentum going. Would I recommend Laura and Cindy. In a heartbeat!

Oh, yes…. I sold my house with Laura in 2012. It, too, was a fabulous house with some challenges. As with my husband's house, Laura went the extra mile — make that miles — to negotiate with the buyers and to guide me in making some critical decisions. Not only is Laura a great realtor, but I feel my husband and I have gained a great friend. Now, how can I convince her to move to the state where we live now so that she can sell this house when the time comes?

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $150K in Canal Winchester, OH.

Laura and Cindy work as a team and one of them are always available. We were not easy buyers to please and Laura took her time and showed us houses, almost 50, everywhere between Pataskala and Marysville. Laura provided great insight into the various neighborhoods we explored. At the time of negotiation Laura represented us as the buyers with the sellers agent and the banks. Laura also put us in touch with a mortgage banker that went out of his way to provide the best possible loan. I have recommended Laura and Cindy to co-workers and will continue to recommend them as realtors you can trust and worth doing business.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Pickerington, OH.

My husband and I came across Cindy and Laura while searching for a home. We were very pleased with their knowledge of not only the process of home buying,the area and they also were able to give us honest opinions of the very homes themselves. I have had agents in the past that were not very accessible and would take days to get us in for a home tour and then lose potencial homes we were interested in. But, Laura and CIndy were great ,they fit us in to their tight schedule always sometimes even showing me a home for a second time. We looked at many homes possibly over 20 or so and they still treated us everytime like it was the first time. I would recommend Laura and Cindy if your are looking for honest,proactive agents. With the girls working together it makes it even better to know that things will get done in a timely manner!
