    Bought a home in 2022 in Wadsworth, OH 44281.
    I felt like I was her only client during the whole process! She was on top of every detail. She was able to take all of the stress off of us and handled everything, other than me having to sign.

    Sold a single family home in 2022 in Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44313.
    Professionalism from start to finish. You are in good hands with Laura! She was extremely helpful all throughout the process and her communication was excellent. In the end we received a higher than asking offer which Laura helped facilitate. Would highly recommend her for purchasing or selling your home.

    Sold a single family home in 2022 in Fairlawn, OH 44333.
    Laura is a consummate professional with incredible knowledge gained over years of experience. She is incredibly easy to work with. We put the sale of our home into her hands and she guided us to top dollar and a very very clean transaction. We were guided through the entire process beginning with pricing and staging as well as showing our home. When offers came through Laura helped us understand the nuances, risks and benefits of of each offer. Laura communicated with us constantly from the first meeting to the closing process. I can't say enough positive about the experience we had working with Laura.

    Bought and sold a single family home in 2022 in Fairlawn, OH 44333.
    I cannot say enough wonderful words about Laura Horning Duryea! She is extremely knowledgeable, always responsive, and genuinely cares. Laura understands the market and how to buy and sell. She has a network of people available to use as resources, too. I found this to be invaluable in making sure to avoid getting into something that wasn't right as well as preparing my home to sell. Laura sold my home in West Akron in days at the start of Covid, then worked on the purchase of a new home in Bath, and recently sold that home in Bath in just days.My favorite part of Laura is how sincerely empathetic she is- she was just excited as me at each of these transactions! Thank you, Laura! You will be helping me buy again soon!

    Sold a single family home in 2022 for approximately $950K in Fairlawn, OH 44333.
    Laura was fantastic! She knew exactly what needed to be done to ensure our house presented itself well with the least amount of work and expense. When we needed skilled people, Laura was able to provide names for movers and painters. Laura was logical, thoughtful, respectful, and obviously well respected in the industry. She knew the market and neighborhood quite well, which played to our home’s strengths and our ultimate benefit in selling quickly and above asking price. I am a huge fan of Laura!

    Sold a single family home in 2022 in Akron, OH 44303.
    Laura helped us close the sale of my mother's home in the Highland Square neighborhood of Akron. She came up with a plan of sale that incorporated our scheduled tag sale at the house and we secured a buyer from that event. It was a smooth transaction and she provided all the fee information upfront, so we understood what our net return would be on the sale. Very happy with the transaction and I highly recommend Laura for your real estate needs!

    Bought and sold a single family home in 2022 for approximately $225K in Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44313.
    Laura helped my fiancé and I buy a home and sell our condo. In buying our home, Laura spoke with both of us on the phone to really get to know what we were looking for. She helped us narrow down our search so that we were quickly able to find houses that we both loved. Laura was quick to respond when we reached out with a question or wanted to see a house. She explained everything about the process in a way that was easy to understand and was so kind and helpful. She has worked with most of my family to find us houses!In selling our condo, Laura worked quickly and efficiently to get the condo on the market and get people interested. She was super responsive to any questions or concerns that I had and was very open and honest. Home buying and selling with Laura was easy because I truly trust her and she is amazing at what she does!

    Bought a single family home in 2021 for approximately $625K in Copley, OH 44321.
    Laura helped our family find a home and was amazing throughout the process! She is knowledgeable, patient, and beyond experienced in so many geographic locations. Buying a home is not always easy and can be very emotional, but she made it easy. If you are thinking of purchasing a home, I highly recommend!

    Sold a single family home in 2022 for approximately $375K in Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44313.
    When we decided to sell our home of 35+ years, we selected Laura based on her knowledge of the area, experience, name recognition and friendly personality. We first met with Laura at an open house showing, then twice later at our house. We kept in touch over the course of the next year via phone and email while our new home was being built. The research, listing, marketing and sales processes used by Laura were accurate and effective. Over the course of a 3 day listing we had close to 70 showings and 10 offers above list price. We settled on an all cash offer well above list. Final closing was also a breeze through Laura's suggested title company. We are excited for the new owners of our home. We are very pleased we went with Laura. We would highly recommend Laura Horning Duryea for your real estate representation.

    Bought a single family home in 2022 in Fairlawn, OH 44333.
    Laura is such a great person and an exceptional agent. As first time home buyers, she was able to answer every question we had and clearly addressed all our concerns. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the home buying process, such as rent backs, inspections, negotiations, and contracts to name a few. Her biggest concern was to make sure we were excited about whatever home we purchased. Her experience really helped us navigate this difficult housing market. We are so lucky that we had her on our side and we would highly recommend her as an agent.
