    Helped me buy home
    This was my third transaction with Laura and each one has been seamless. She knows how to communicate with both clients and agents, and she is able to adjust on the fly to anything that comes up. She knew what was important to me and what I was looking for and always made that the center of our process. I have bought and sold with Laura and she brings the same effort and execution to each side of the transaction, which is not something I can say for every agent. I can't recommend her highly enough for a smooth process that will help you find the perfect home for you!

    Laura did an outstanding job assisting me with the purchase of condo. I worked with Laura before to help me buy and that experience was great as well. She is very involved, responsive to emails and texts, knows the area housing market. Highly recommend Laura.

    Laura did an excellent job with the sale and purchase of our properties. Her knowledge, experience and guidance helped us tremendously through the entire process. We are very fortunate to have Laura help us and are very pleased with our new home.

    Laura was our first choice in working with a realtor who could understand our needs and get our home sold. She did a great job in negotiations and working with our loan company.

    Helped me buy and sell homes
    This was the second time my wife and I have worked with Laura. She helped us buy a home in 2020, and recently helped us sell that same home in Iowa City. We have been very happy with her work and knowledge as a realtor. She got us a very good deal and made closing very easy. She is always attentive to the details and needs with purchasing and selling. Her communication is great and she is always looking out for your best interests. We wish we could have brought her down to Kansas City to help us purchase our new home!!! If we are ever back in Iowa in the future we will definitely be contacting her. Don’t hesitate to contact her if you are looking at home purchase/sale. She is fantastic!

    Laura has always been amazing! When I purchased my condo, she was recommended to me and made the process very smooth. When I decided to sell my condo, there was no other person I would want helping me. Selling was a different process and I didn’t know what to expect. Laura and her team, again, made the process very smooth. She was very attentive & knowledgeable which took the stress of selling off of me. I couldn’t recommend her and her team enough!

    I've known Laura for some years and she helped me in previous real estate transactions. Recently she helped me sell a condo in Iowa. The whole process was fantastic as Laura handled everything! I currently live out of state and Laura went above and beyond to help me downsize furniture, sell and donate many items. Laura is fantastic to work with, responsive, helpful, and has tremendous local knowledge that got everything accomplished without any problems. I would definitely work with Laura again.

    Laura was amazingly helpful and knowledgeable during the entirety of the selling process. Not only was she able to answer questions succinctly and quickly, she stayed available to help with all sorts of things through the entire process of getting our home ready to sell, marketing the house, negotiating the contract, and all of the moving snafus that are inevitable with a long-distance move. I cannot recommend her enough!

    Laura was great to work with, very knowledgeable, and made selling a house a simple process. She was extremely responsive and took care of everything. She was able to address last minute issues prior to closing and made sure the deal went through. She also helped me buy the place, and I was extremely satisfied with her service for the buying process as well.

    Laura was my cheerleader and advocate. She had great insights to places and worked hard to help be find my vision. When we found the place, she was a great local resource for finding house inspectors, electricians, and other services needed.
