WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"My wife and I were looking for a property for long-term investment/short-term additional income.
Laurie not only found a perfect property for us but guided us through the entire process, from searching for property to making the offer, having a professional take photographs of the property and securing our first tenant.
Laurie is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We were very pleased with how she made the process much simpler than expected."
