    Bought a for approximately $300Khome in 2016 singleFamily in Pigeon Creek, Akron, OH 44321.
    Working with Laura for the last year has been an absolute pleasure. She is very kind, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Once we let her know what we were looking for she went like a roadrunner to find it. She worked with us for over a year and never got tired. If you want the best agent out there call Laura..

    Bought and sold a for approximately $350Khome in 2015 singleFamily in Northwest Akron, Akron, OH 44313.
    Laura was very patient when helping my husband and and I find the perfect home in the best neighborhood for our family. She grew up in Akron and is very knowledgeable of the area. Laura represented both the seller and buyer during our buying process. We wanted to move immediately and she worked quickly communicating and negotiating with the seller so we could do so. Laura is a great hard working agent!

    Sold a for approximately $225Khome in 2015 singleFamily in Northwest Akron, Akron, OH 44313.
    Laura is an outstanding agent! We sold our home quickly and she made the process much more bearable for us. We had 1 buyer back out at the last minute and we were panicked. She took control of the situation and brought us another buyer quickly! She and her husband/business partner were an absolute dream to work with!
