There are lots of agents out there, but they aren’t Laurie Turner.” That’s how my late husband described our experience with Laurie on selling our home and buying our condominium.

Laurie, we are so pleased with how you handled the sale of our property from start to finish. Your organization, focus and follow-through were so impressive.
