I had to move out of state in 2011 while trying to sell my house in Kentucky. When I first listed the house I hired a realtor that never showed my house in 6 months, was not responsive or helpful, and made a stressful situation a lot worse.
When my contract with that realtor was up, I was extremely lucky to find Laura! Her inital marketing of the house was fantastic, and she was reaching out to other local realtors to let them know about the house. Within a few days of listing my house Laura had several people come look at the house and she was consistenly showing the house each week. Within a month of the house being listed I had 2 competiting offers on the house, and it was under contract within a week of those offers.
Being out of state I was consistently calling Laura to find out what was going on with the process and she was always extremely responsive and patient with all of my questions and concerns. She guided me through a very tough closing process (it took several months because of the type of loan my buyers were getting) and I felt extremely comfortable that I had a strong advocate in my corner, and that Laura was always looking out for my best interest.
Laura made a very tough process very easy for me, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is professional, knowledgable, and will do whatever she can to represent her client's best interest. I will always be grateful to Laura and what she did for me in selling my home!
15 years ago my partner and I decided to purchase our own home. Laura was the first person I called. I had known her for some time and was very comfortable with her. We searched and searched, Laura being ever so patient with us both. Now almost 3 yrs ago we had to purchase another home and had a limited time to do so as our neighborhood had been bought up by the local school board for a new school. We searched high and low, calling Laura out several times per week to show homes to us, My Mother was even going along with us, after an exhaustive search we finally found it, then the really hard work began for Laura, but we got our home at our price and are very happy.
Not only do we recommend Laura to others looking for real-estate, but My Mother has recommended her as well.
So, if you are in the market for real-estate I would highly recommend you give Laura a call, she is a very agreeable professional that will make your search for your home or business property easy and enjoyable. When and if the need arises in the future for another home, she will be the one I call.
She was amazing! She managed all three very different type of properties with skill, professionalism, and results. She helped me appropriately stage and sell my home at a reasonable price in a down market. She helped with the sales of an undeveloped piece of land in the country and a commercial building in Paducah in 2013. All these were challenging sales in a down market. She believed in me, my properties, and worked honestly with myself and the buyers. This win-win philosophy worked wonders. I always felt that with her help we could get it done. Her negotiation skills are outstanding! I highly recommend her.- wildkarde

Laura has been my Realtor through several real estate transactions. She is very competent and is always concerned about the needs and ideas of the buyer or seller she is assisting. She has assisted me with both and as a buyer she worked very hard to help me find exactly what I was looking for and when I sold homes she got the job done quickly and efficiently. Laura comes highly recommended by me.- Tammy S
