    Sold a town home in 2021 in Weber Harlocke, Iowa City, IA 52246.
    A five-star review really doesn't do justice. I was in the process of moving across the country when I reached out to Laura. Things were hectic for me but Laura went over and beyond to make the staging/listing/selling process a breeze.

    While I have never had Laura as a buyer's agent (I really wish I did), I would also recommend her to all the potential buyers - as a seller, I can see how honest and caring she is for the buyer. She is very patient, detailed, and really puts her client first. I highly recommend Laura to everyone.

    This is the third time I have asked for Laura's help in buying and selling property. One of Laura's strengths is valueing and respecting everyone she deals with. She is sincere and thorough. You'll be glad you chose her to work on your behalf!

    Laura is absolutely the area's best Realtor! She and her team always put the client first. She leaves no detail overlooked, and her professionalism and expertise can't be topped. Her marketing is top-notch, which has landed us quick sales both times we've listed with her. We love working with Laura!

    Laura is the best! Her customer service is top notch. She was caring and attentive to my unique circumstances. She went above and beyond the call of duty. Not only does she know real estate, she knows people. I am beyond pleased with her work.

    Bought a single family home in 2021 for approximately $300K in Eastside, Iowa City, IA 52245.
    We had a great time working with Laura. She made everything very easy to understand and was very friendly. This is the first house we have bought on our own and she was very helpful with all of our questions. The whole process was great!

    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!
    Response from Laura on 12/15/2020
    Thank you Clay! Hope you both are enjoying your new place. Thank you for trusting me to find you your new home! Laura
