From the photos, to the marketing and communication we knew we were with the right group to sell our home. We would use her again and recommend her and her team to buy or sell!

We enjoyed working with Laurie to sell our home. She was very friendly and easy to talk to. She had very good knowledge of the whole real estate system, how things work and she was efficient in getting things done. Laurie negotiated our sale very well, even when things got a little complicated. She went above what was called for to get our sale finalized. We would use her again, and highly recommend her and her team.

I recently worked with Laurie Zokoe and her staff to both sell my home and purchase a condo. Laurie and her staff were excellent to work with -- very professional. I had tentatively decided to put my home on the market at the end of August and met with Laurie to express my desires and concerns. Our meeting was wonderful and I decided to list with her. She is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. She was extremely timely with return phone calls and emails. She?s a very busy agent, but gave me all the time and attention needed -- as if I were her only client. I highly recommend Laurie and her staff! Less ... More

Laurie rocks! She is the best real state agent we have ever used. She helped us firt buy a house that we purchased on our own, then she turned around and helped us sell our current home. We sold it to the first person. She also helped with the negotiations. Even when we did not know what to ask for. She saved us money. Laurie knows her market. I would not hesitate in recommending her, and if, we ever need help again with a house, we will call her first. Reluctant Seller (LOL)

Choosing Laurie as our realtor was an excellent decision. She is top notch, and the best in the business. We were especially impressed with how well she uses technology... accepting showings was as easy as a click on my phone. Her advice was incredibly helpful because we were faced with multiple offers that were very different. She made it all easy... we were able to choose the best offer and close the deal from our cottage on a holiday weekend. Laurie and her team are great - I'd recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy. On top of it all, they made a very stressful situation FUN. Less ... More

Laurie helped us sell our house and then the race was on to buy a new home so that we didn't have to move twice. She was able to get us into see homes that weren't even on the market yet and ended up finding us a beautiful home that we LOVE! Above all else, we trusted Laurie to be the truly ethical, professional woman that she is. Thank you Laurie!

Laurie went above and beyond to find our house. We were looking at a house across the street and she encouraged us to see one none of us had known about. She contacted the Realtor who was nearly impossible to reach and got us in the house while we were already in the neighborhood. A few hours later we were signing an offer. She was also very honest about each house we walked through. Thanks Laurie!

Looking for your first home is always a challenge. The challenge for my wife and I was finding a house in our price range that would allow us to start our family. The only problem was that we didn't know what areas to stay away from, or what to look for in a starter home. Laurie's knowledge of the market and surrounding areas really helped us make an educated decision on what and where to buy. Her negotiations allowed us to buy a home that we would have considered out of our price range. Now, in a year or two, we will be moving again to get our kids into a school system we believe will allow them to excel. I will not hesitate to call Laurie when that time comes to aid us in selling our starter home and moving into the new home that will satisfy our needs. Less ... More

Laurie was knowledgable and had great ideas for selling our home. She really listened to our concerns and addressed each of them. Laurie was always available by phone for questions and personally came to the home for key showings with the buyer's agent. She took responsibility for ensuring that the transaction went smoothly rather than delegating aspects of the process to other colleagues (something we experienced with another realtor).

We really liked the technology she uses for document uploading & signing and the immediate feedback we were able to get after showings. And I trusted her counsel through the negotation process. Over all the sale of our home went very smooth and I would absolutely recommend her.

She walked through our house and spiffed it up during our first meeting, then she gave ideas for adding a few items and we were ready for the photo shoot. She also has a knowledgeable staff to assist in the processing of paperwork and scheduling.

The house was on the market for a almost a year to the day that we listed it. Laurie and her staff were excellent at keeping us informed of what was going on and things we needed to do. It was very easy at the closing, because they were all well prepared! Thank-you!
