"I highly recommend realtor Laura Rice, whether you're selling or buying a home. Laura demonstrated an overwhelming amount of professionalism and patience while helping me both sell and buy a new home following a divorce. These were extremely stressful and exciting times in my life and Laura always gave me her honest and wise opinion. It wasn't easy selling a home with an ex-spouse but she made it as pain-free as possible and sold it within 8 days! When buying, we viewed many homes during my arduous search, and she did not allow me to settle on something that she knew would not be suitable to my needs or make me happy in the long run. Her patience and encouragement were extremely valuable to me in a market where a home would sell within hours of being listed. Most importantly, she was respectful of my budget, never pressuring me to look outside of my comfort zone. Her background as an attorney meant that she was very thorough and diligent when it was time to negotiate and develop contracts, which helped put me at ease. Whatever your needs, I feel confident recommending Laura Rice. She's the whole package, smart, professional, patient, respectful, reliable, honest, and thorough."

"Laura made our home-buying and selling experience as seamless and effortless as possible. She went above and beyond throughout the process, from getting us showings quickly to soliciting bids from contractor during negotiations. We felt as if we were her only clients! She was so on top of the process that often she would answer out questions before we even knew we had them. I always felt that Laura was not only working hard for us, she truly had out best interest at heart."

"My house was listed with three other realtors and had been sitting on the market almost a year before a friend referred me to Laura. Thanks to Laura's guidance, my house sold quickly after she listed it. Laura will give you a thorough, honest assessment of the market and where you need to be priced to meet your goals. She will also provide you with the tools you need to make your home more attractive to buyers. Laura's strategy worked and I was thrilled with the results! She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with."
