EXPERIENCED, ATTENTIVE, RELIABLE—If you are serious about buying a home in Memphis and don’t want to miss out on the perfect opportunity when it comes along, Laurie is the only realtor you want to work with. Realizing that I was visiting from out of state and working on a compressed timeline, she wasted no time showing me all of the available properties within a preset area. She knew everything there was to know about the neighborhood including market trends and activity, the average price per square foot of recent comparable sales, the standard features and highly coveted amenities for homes in that area, you name it… As we continued our search from 1,000 miles away, she promptly notified us any time there was a new listing, hours or days before it was advertised publicly, and she was happy to scope it out for us, sending photos, videos or FaceTiming us from the property. Throughout this weeks-long process, she remained extremely patient with us, never taking her foot off the gas, but also never making us feel pressured to make a decision or stretch beyond our comfortable limits. As busy as she was, she truly made us feel like we were her one and only client. When it was time to make an offer, she made informed recommendations and she made sure that ours was the first offer received. Once our offer was accepted, you might expect some realtors to disappear and ride off into the sunset. Not Laurie! She remained by our side every step of the way, maintaining regular communication with us through emails, calls and text messages almost on a daily basis. Through her vast network of professional colleagues, she effortlessly coordinated home inspections, appraisals, settlement services and necessary repairs to the home, while ensuring our loan was written and processed for an on-time settlement. If all that weren’t enough, out of pure courtesy to us she set up a home warranty contract on the property and she continued assisting us with a short-term lease until we could move in. What an absolute ANGEL! At the end of this whole process, I find myself wanting to buy another home in Memphis, just so I can work with Laurie again!
We first met Laurie when we were looking to move to Memphis 2 years ago. She was very knowledgable about the local market and was able to help us locate a house that fit our needs very easily. When it came time to sell that house, Laurie was only happy to help us list. She was came over to look over the property and give us a very good "must haves" punch list with aplomb. She even helped us locate local contractors and the other services we needed to make our home shine for a good listing. I must say that we would have been several months getting our house ready for the market had she not intervened. The selling process has been smooth and seamless and her advice on everything from price to repair amendments has been expert. I would recommend her to anyone.
