    Bought a single family home in 2020 for approximately $200K in Eastside, Iowa City, IA 52240.
    All I can say is The Laura Soride Real Estate Team is excellent. I worked with Laura primarily, and I am so happy I was able to have her on my side. Laura is on the ball with everything I needed to purchase my home. As a first time homebuyer she held my hand through the process and answered any questions I had. She was so patient with me during this process. She made herself available at all times of the day to do showings, talk on the phone, or reply to emails. When it comes time to sell my home I will definitely be contacting Laura again.

    P.S. - Chuck was great to work with too!

    Bought a single family home in 2020 for approximately $500K in Swisher, IA 52338.
    Laura was very helpful, professional, and responsive. When we changed our criteria part way into our search she got us lined up with additional showings right away. She is extremely familiar with the entire area and was able to get us in contact with several local vendors to perform services that we wanted to have done once we took possession of our home. We highly recommend Laura.

    Bought and sold a town home in 2020 in Golf View Mobile Home Court, North Liberty, IA 52317.
    My wife and I could not have asked for a better agent. Laura was a true professional. We met her by coincidence while looking at property and could tell from the initial discussions this was the Realtor for us. She was sincere in her help and truly masterful in negotiations as we sold our house. We will forever be grateful for the Laura Soride Team!

    Thank you Clay! Hope you both are enjoying your new place. Thank you for trusting me to find you your new home! Laura

    I would highly recommend Laura Soride as a realtor. She was very responsible to our housing requests. We found her to be honest and attentive to the details of each house we toured. She was also familiar with the area and knew each home lot size and contingencies. Her attention to details at the time of closings was outstanding.

    Bought a single family home in 2019 for approximately $500K in Oakdale, Coralville, IA 52241.
    Laura and her team are the best in the area, hands down. My family has purchased three homes (and sold one) with her and we would never use anyone else. Laura is incredibly knowledgeable, fantastically personal, and has helped us navigate some tough situations that have arisen with less-than-scrupulous sellers. My family and I always relax when we know Laura and her team are on the case!. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Very comfortable to work with her. Easy communication. Respond message and email promptly. Not push and comfortable pace to follow our interesting. Definitely will recommend her.
