My husband and I are both Active Duty military and first-time home buyers. Being in Active Duty military, we had a much different process to go through than if we were civilian buyers. Despite the fact that we were a 'special' case, Laura was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and help rest our anxieties for the unknown home-buying process. She went above and beyond to search for our dream home. She even drove my husband and I (separately at times even due to our opposite work schedules on Base) to targeted homes that she researched from the open market...even ones that were a potential but had to be seen in person due to lack of information provided by the builders online. We found our dream home with ALL of the scrupulous amenities we desired and then some! She said, "We will not settle on a house to make your home...I want you to walk into your new home every day and be able to say 'I LOVE MY HOME!' with smiling eyes." Laura went above and beyond with a perseverance and promptness that we hadn't seen in several others in the area that we *briefly* interviewed before we met her. Be aware of the lazy, unknowledgeable realtors out there...our advice is to pick Laura. PS: Gary Cannon was our home builder/designer...he's just as articulate and beyond wonderful as Laura!
