We couldn’t agree more. With over 30 years’ experience,Laura has built a vast network of resources ranging from attorneys and mortgage brokers to professional painters, architects and contractors. She loves looking at properties and knows how to get the property you want at a fair price. Laura engaged listing agents in conversation to gather any details we may have missed while we explored the home. She understood exactly what we wanted, identified places we hadn’t considered but could work, and helped us through the buying and selling processes. If you seek a real estate agent with a great understanding of the Chicago market and genuinely cares about exceeding your needs, I would recommend Laura without hesitation.”
