Laura was wonderful to work with! Being a 1st time home buyer was stressful and intimidating. Having Laura by our side was life saving. She is friendly, prompt, organized, and very detail oriented
Laura was an absolute joy to work with throughout the entire home-buying process. As a first time homebuyer, purchasing a house was a scary and daunting prospect. Laura was very helpful during house visits pointing out all the little details, explaining typical home issues, and answering the many questions thrown her way with the patience of a saint. Laura was prompt with all of her replies and her attention to details with the overwhelming amount of paperwork was nothing short of incredible. Thank you Laura, for everything!!!
Highly recommended! Laura is knowledgable, responsive, and diligently helped us navigate and negotiate our first home purchase. She was accommodating with our busy work schedules and has a reliable network for associated services. We felt confident leaving negotiations in her hands while we were away and never felt pressured. Thank you greatly!
Laura helped us buy a house in what was an intense, fast paced market in Arlington. We were living out of town and purchased sight unseen. Luckily we had Laura as our eyes and ears on the ground. She coached us through the process and ensured that we got the house we wanted without paying more than current market value. I can’t recommend her enough! She knows the market well and helped us get the house we wanted within our budget (despite competing against multiple offers)
Laura is the BEST! She helped us purchase our first place (a condo) 5 years ago, and just recently helped us sell and buy our new place. In all three cases, Laura’s expert advice put us in a position to make the deals work, which likely wouldn’t have been possible without her. Laura’s guidance and support was incredible throughout the process; it always felt like we were her top priority. She is a pleasure to work with and has a way of making a stressful process truly enjoyable. Laura goes above and beyond, which is why we recommend her to everyone!
This was my second transaction with Laura. Several years ago, Laura helped me to find a house in Arlington and so impressed me with her dedication and determination that I knew I would want to involve her in my next real-estate transaction. She did not disappoint me. I can highly recommend Laura as a true standout in her profession. She is smart, skilled, and has a great sense of humor, making her a pleasure to do business with. Having been a salesman, myself, I can perhaps appreciate others in that profession more so than most, when I see them. You just cannot go wrong with Laura Schwartz in your corner!
I’ve used Laura twice and both times the buying/selling went very smoothly. I was very concerned about getting a fair price for my home and Laura helped me list for a price that was above what I expected and sold before it was officially on the market (Coming Soon). I was able to avoid extra costs like staging the house, getting the carpets cleaned and paying on two mortgages. Laura gave me sound advice that moved the house quickly and helped me evaluate my options successfully. This was the first house I’ve sold and was very stressed about making the right decisions, but with Laura’s help I was able to get through it easily. The whole process was too easy for how well it went.
Laura is an expert in the Arlington market. We’ve completed two successful purchases and one sale with her in the last three years and she has always been spot on when it comes to what something should sell for given the location and condition of the property. She is also very honest and up front about the value of a home and helped us from making an emotional decision and overpaying. She also carefully advised us on when and when not to waive contingencies. From a sellers perspective, she also helped us prepare our home for showings, priced the home to sell, and in the end we received 9 offers in one weekend and got way more for our home than we were expecting. Laura is a pro–she always put us first and never pushed for a quick purchase or sale. We wouldn’t work with anyone else in this area.
Laura was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn’t have been happier with her! Laura took the time to sit down with me and really learn what it was that I was looking for in a home. The biggest selling point for me is that Laura is completely honest. When I saw a house that I thought I liked, she was great about telling me the flaws that she saw and working through with me why it wasn’t going to be as great a fit as I initially thought. She could have helped me buy that house and taken a bigger commission than she ultimately received, but she knew it wasn’t right for me, and she was clearly working in my best interest, not her own. As a first time home-buyer, Laura put me at ease and patiently answered every silly question that I had. She even negotiated a lower price for the house I bought than what was listed and she got the seller to throw in some furniture that I liked in the deal too. Laura is amazing and you can’t do better!
