    Bought a home in 2022 in Iowa City, IA 52246.
    Laura is the best! She kept me informed at all times and helped me throughout the entire process. As a new homeowner, especially in this crazy market, she helped manage any concerns I had and answered and got the answers to the many questions I had. She was always made time for me and was quickly responsive at all hours of the day and night when searching for a home, and when I was set on a home and wanted to get in to take a look. Laura listened to what I was looking for, even though I was all over the place and unsure at first, she remained patient with me and helped me along the way. I recommend Laura 100%!

    Bought a single family home in 2022 for approximately $225K in Iowa City, IA 52240.
    Laura was a great asset to have while looking for a home in a very fast moving market. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and more responsive that I could ever have hoped. She helped my husband and I get a home we love.

    Bought a single family home in 2021 in North Liberty, IA 52317.
    This is my 2nd time working with Laura Soride and her team. She initially sold my home in North Liberty in 2018 when work took me out of state. When it was time for me to come back I knew who to call. Laura Soride was an excellent asset in finding a home in North Liberty. She went above and beyond as I was searching from out of state. She went to houses and even filmed and reviewed them for me! With her expertise I was able to close on a perfect home all while being many states away. I recommend everyone in the market for buying or selling a home to contact Laura Soride. You will be glad you did. Thanks Laura!

    Bought a home in 2021 in Iowa City, IA 52245.
    We were very impressed with the service we received from Laura. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and available to answer our questions at all times. We could not have ask for a better experience. We would highly recommend her if you are looking for a realtor. We would definitely use her services again.

    Bought a home in 2021 in Cedar Rapids, IA 52401.
    It was absolutely amazing to work with Laura on buying my first home. She is incredibly knowledgeable but more importantly spent time understanding exactly what I was looking for and making sure that I had all of the information and support I needed. From when I started looking until closing (and even after), Laura made it feel like a fun and exciting process.

    Sold a home in 2021 in Iowa City, IA 52245.
    Laura Soride is an excellent agent who came highly recommended by a longtime friend. With all the realtors I have worked with, she worked well beyond what one could expect. She listed my condo in late August and less than two weeks we were on contract to sell. Throughout the process, she greatly exceeded all expectations from staging, showing, contracting, and closing. She stayed in touch constantly and even coordinated last-minute fixes. She is an excellent negotiator with a very personalized touch; brilliant to work with. I highly recommend her!

    Bought a home in 2021 in Tiffin, IA 52340.
    Laura was awesome! She was very patient with me as I was in a rush to find a home in the Coralville area. She answered my questions promptly and didn't hesitate to make phone calls for me. I really enjoyed working with Laura and plan to do so again in the future!

    Sold a single family home in 2021 in North Liberty, IA 52317.
    Laura was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the housing options. She found us the house we needed when we needed it, and got it sold very rapidly when that time came. She obviously has many connections within the community; we used her insights not only for buying and selling our house, but as to who were the reliable workers/contractors for repairs and projects. On top of all this, I would consider her a friend. I can recommend her without reservation for your real estate needs.

    Sold a town home in 2021 in 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.

    Sold a home in 2021 in Riverside, IA 52327.
    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!
