"Stephanie helped me find my dream first home! As a first time home buyer, I wasn’t knowledgeable about the home buying process. She was so patient with me and explained every step! She was always responsive to my questions and concerns. Stephanie took all my needs and wants and found just what I was looking for! I will be recommending Stephanie to all my friends and family! "

Tracy and Laura went above and beyond in helping us on the sale of our home. They provided amazing guidance on what to do to prep the home before listing it to maximize interest from buyers. After their help staging the home, we were under contract after only a few showings and received several offers over asking price. We are now under contract on our new home, which they helped us secure before it even hit the market. The service and knowledge Tracy and Laura provide during the entire process is second to none. They are excellent and truly care about each of their clients!

I have used Laura on multiple transactions both purchasing and selling a home . Laura is certainly one of the best and most talented agents I have dealt with and her detailed knowledge in all aspects as a selling agent as well as a buying agent is second to none . I would not hesitate to engage Laura in any future purchases or sales.

Brian was amazing and I appreciate all he did to ensure that we put our best foot forward. Brian was terrific and I give him nothing but high praise. Brian worked hard to sell my property fast and stress-free and restored my confidence in real estate agents. Brian went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you, Brian. -Jamese Rollins

Georgia did an amazing job with the purchase of our home in Atlanta's West End. We had a somewhat tricky offer situation, with repairs needed on the home that the sellers paid for and Georgia navigated the complicated process with ease. She did a great job helping us negotiate the best offer for our new home. Highly recommend!

"Maria was absolutely amazing to work with. I have worked with Maria 4 times now. Three to rent and one to buy and could not be happier with the experience. She knows the area extremely well, has great connections, and helps you find everything you're looking for within your budget. I know exactly who I will be using again when I am in need of assistance. You cannot go wrong with Maria whatsoever!"

"My entire experience with Elle Fergus was nothing short of exceptional. As time home buyers, my wife and I were green to the entire home buying process. Elle was patient throughout our housing search, helping us weigh the pros and cons of each neighborhood to make sure we found the perfect place to grow our budding family. Elle knew exactly what we were searching for, and because of this, helped us purchase a house in our favorite Atlanta neighborhood without a “for sale” sign ever touching the front yard. Elle’s professional yet personable demeanor made the buying process smooth, thorough, and most importantly, fun! I’m thankful for Elle helping my family find the perfect home, and I would highly recommend Elle to anyone looking to find a house to turn into a home."

"Elle was an absolute dream to work with as a first-time home buyer! From the initial meeting where she and Laura walked us through the home-buying process and explained it all very clearly and took time to answer our questions, we knew we were in good hands. Elle made a seemingly stressful process far less stressful. Not only is Elle well-informed, honest, and very knowledgeable, but she's also kind and personable. She wants you to find the home that's right for you and is very patient to make it happen. There's no doubt we'll be returning to her when it comes time to buy our next home!"

"Elle was such a pleasure to work with as our realtor. As first time home buyers, we had so many questions and were intimated at times in this current market. However, with Elle’s knowledge, support and guidance we were able to find a home within our budget AND desired location. Elle is the perfect balance of a realtor who is professional and yet personable too. She cares about her clients and works hard to find the best house for them. Her support for us extended far beyond just the purchase of the home. We are so grateful for everything that Elle did for us! Highly recommend her in the Atlanta area!"

“Laura was awesome to work with. We purchased our first home in a very competitive market. She navigated us through the process from beginning to end. In making our offer on the home we wanted, we beat out 15 other offers using her advice, with the home still appraising for more than we paid. She was also very understanding and made sure we never left our comfort zone. Laura knows all about the Atlanta area and neighborhoods. If we ever purchase another home or sell this one, we will absolutely go with her again.”

“We used Laura to both find our new home and sell our existing home. We had a very tough, drawn out buying process, but Laura stayed on top of the process for us, brought a lot of great expertise, and humor to keep us sane and on track. She was able to negotiate really creative enhancements and financing options for us. On our sale, she was able to get us under contract much faster than other properties in our area. We would highly recommend Laura to anyone who wants to work with someone who looks out for their best interest.”

“I cannot say enough good things about Laura - she is incredible! She has extensive knowledge of the in-town area, is very responsive and truly listens to your needs. She also knows how to structure offers in this highly competitive market to make sure yours stands out from the rest of the pack. I am so thankful for all she has done for me and cannot recommend her enough!”

“Laura was friendly, responsive, tactical and helpful every step of the way through the process of selling our home. We moved out before closing and she even met the exterminator when we had to have wasps treated on the balcony after we had left town. Our closing went off without a hitch. We would highly recommend her services.”

“I can’t say enough good things about working with Laura! As a first time buyer, I really appreciated how knowledgeable, professional & responsive she was. She helped me navigate the market, answered all my questions & connected me with all the right contacts when needed. Overall she made my whole process feel easy & smooth. Highly recommend her.”

“We can’t recommend Laura enough! This was our first time buying a home and she was our rock throughout the entire process. We had a million questions and we felt supported thanks to her expertise and guidance. Laura operates with intentionality, speed, and integrity and we knew we were taken care of every step of the way thanks to her. Not to mention she is a gem with the best personality so any chance we got to be with her made the process even more fun. You’re in the BEST hands with Laura!”

“How do I even put into words how amazing our experience was with Laura… I can sure try. She is beyond knowledgeable in her field, more friendly and comforting than the best friend you have but also knows how to get the job done professionally and efficiently. We listed our first home with her and she orchestrated the most amazing open house that had tons of people through the doors, we had an offer immediately that ended up being the one. She took the reins on that and couldn’t have gotten us a better deal. We also bought our current (and hopefully our forever) home with her as our agent. The process was extremely stressful because we were on a two week trip in Europe during the majority of the negotiations… but Laura stepped in and handled as much as she could to take the burden off of us. Long story short, she is a freakin rock star and we feel so lucky to have her as an agent and friend. Thank you Laura!!!!!!”
