Lawrie Lawrence and his team were outstanding to work with from the beginning to end of my listing transaction in The Farms. The professionalism of Lawrie and his staff from the first phone call, the initial listing appointment through the follow up after the transaction was amazing. Their goal from day one was to work with me to promptly get my home listed and ultimately marketed to the right buyer. The communication throughout the process was phenomenal as I was promptly provided feedback from all showings and Lawrie went over the top to communicate with agents who had shown my home to get a true reading on their interest and the possibility of an offer. I will definitely refer Lawrie Lawrence to my friends and family. Less ... More

Lawrie's company "Lawrie Lawrence Real Estate" represented the buyer (us) and the seller in this transaction. The transaction occurred around 8/13. The day of closing (10am) I was on the phone with Lawrie at 9am discussing why the "punch list" items were not complete. The contractor he sent out to fix some of the problems, such as caulking around a window, did a terrible job. Doors that didn't close properly were not fixed, cracked rocks that were to be replaced, not completed... Lawrie said he would replace the screen doors on the back porch/ patio post-closing as to not delay the 10am closing. When he found out the screens were custom made (which he should have done during the months we had between the signed contract and the closing) he backtracked and said he would only cover up to $150 of new screens and I was responsible for the rest... I had my wife's dad come fix them to the best of his ability and they still don't work properly. Bottom line is I think Lawrie, while growing his company, has take his eye off the little things that matter... his client. Fixing the open items in our new home post closing while I was arguing with him 1 hour before closing is not a sign of a realtor that pays attention to details... I would not use Lawrie, or him company, in a real-estate transaction, and my screen doors still do not close properly... Less ... More

We cannot say enough great things about Lawrie and his team. They worked tirelessly to help us sell our home (in 11 days!) and close on a new one soon thereafter. They were dedicated, professional and extremely patient in answering our millions of questions. Kelly Berrey, the realtor we worked with, became almost like family to us after holding our hand throughout the entire process. Lawrie and his team have our recommendation for life!

Lawrie Lawrence sold our house in less than 45 days. We were very impressed with his use of contemporary marketing resources, reputation as THE leader in our area, supreme professionalism and dedication to his family! We were VERY pleasantly surprised with the exceptionally attentive staff and their wonderfully pleasing and helpful personalities! The judicious use of marketing dollars in social media, highest quality point of use sales collateral and media were evident in the responses from prospective buyers. We've already made several referrals to close friends and important business associates, and will always hold this experience in a special place. It WAS a very special home and neighborhood for us!

I met Lawrie of Lawrie Lawrence Real Estate, along with one of his agents, Kelly Berrey while visiting Mooresville, NC. We connected immediately, which is a rare find. I will do my best to leave my impressions of the entire experience. Lawrie has a way about him that puts his clients at ease and helps them understand that they will be taken care of, that their needs will be met, and that this process will go as smoothly as possible. He is a man of class and integrity, and I got the distinct sense that he will do the right thing at all times. He handled the entire meeting beautifully, and I felt I could relax and enjoy the process. Kelly has a talent for helping the client find their perfect match in both a home and a community. She works tirelessly to gather the perfect home and community information and selections so that the client makes an informed decision. She has the type of approach that shows me that she handles every last detail so that everything goes according to plan. The eye for detail goes along way to ease a new homebuyer's nerves. All in all, I've loved every home I've been shown, and each interaction I've had with the realtors at Lawrie Lawrence; I look forward to a long relationship! Less ... More

Our home was on the market for over seven months when we decided to change realtors. We were impressed with the professionalism of the L.Lawrence Team of folks and how quickly our home was back on the market with an almost daily amount of showings. By about the third week we had an offer and we just closing on our house. Very pleasant experience to say the least. John & Charlotte Castro

I worked with Lisette Missler as my buyer's agent. Energetic, creative, went so many extra miles that I lost count. Personally oversaw a million details. When we were wrong or stubborn on the occasional point, she was tactful, diplomatic, kind, and nearly always right!

Although I was a buyer and Lawrie was a seller agent, we found him personable, pleasant, and reasonable. He was very easy to communicate with and always responded to even the smallest question very quickly. It was a pleasure after having worked (or not worked) with other agents who seemed bothered to have a client.

I sold my house with Lawrie and was very pleased with job he did. The marketing plan was high quality (professional photography; glossy, color brochures; featured listings with the major sites; etc.). This led to getting many showings and getting a sale quickly for the price I wanted. Negotiations went smoothly, I was kept up to date with feedback throughout the process, and felt like he understood my motivations for selling and accommodated accordingly. He represented me well and I would highly recommend him for listing. Less ... More

As soon as we found out we were relocating to another state, a close friend recommended Lawrie to us, and I'm so glad we contacted him! He responded to us immediately, and we knew as soon as we met him that he was going to be our agent. His professional demeanor, expert marketing skills, and thorough knowledge of the area and current market far exceeded our expectations...we were impressed! And to top it off, Lawrie has surrounded himself with a wonderful team, from his photographer, to his stager/interior designer, to his office staff, they were all wonderful to work with! Our house sold in less than a week, and I could not have been happier with the way Lawrie handled the negotiations.

A hailstorm had damaged our roof while the home was listed, and he brought his experience to the situation to make sure all parties were satisfied with the result. He stood apart from the crowd here.

The whole process went very smoothly and we found that Lawrie stayed ahead of issues and kept the communication channels open throughout the entire process.

When we first met with Lawrie to consider using him as our agent, he came totally prepared with a market analysis and sample of his marketing brochures. He was very impressive and promised he would be with us through the whole process, which he was. We wanted to be assured that the photographs of our home that would go on the internet were well done. He assured us they would be, and they were! He also indicated that he would meet with the appaiser should we get an offer. We got an offer within 6 weeks and he did meet with the appraiser for the buyer. He wanted to be sure the appraiser was knowlegable about the homes in our area, and if not, he intended to furnish some information which would assist the appraisal about the comparables in our market. All in all, Lawrie is a pro and we would use him again. Less ... More

He has shown me various properties and discussed the local market to provide me a perspective and help to set my expectations. Specifically, he showed us four homes in the Point community on lake property, which is our desire. We were in discussion with one of the homeowners.

Lawrie Lawrence brings a level of professionalism, international and national expertise, thoroughness, and flexibility that I have not before experienced, despite having bought and sold numerous homes and investments during the past thirty years. In this very difficult real estate and investment environment, Lawrie has taken the time both to show me numerous properties with positive cash flows and excellent returns on investment, and to help me structure deals. His expertise informed me of ways to attract renters or investors from locations outside my own, thus expanding the market.
