We had such an amazing experience purchasing our first home with Laurel. She is truly client-motivated, honest and has integrity; she always kept our best interests in mind. She worked with our hectic work schedules, often viewing homes during weekday evening hours and weekends. She was knowledgeable in the area where we were looking to purchase, had a great network of connections (home inspector, title company, etc.), and was always available to talk/respond to any questions we had. We recommend her to all our friends!
