Working with Camille and Laurel was great, we sold our home faster than expected. They really made the process easier than we had been anticipating. Any question we had were answered quickly and efficiently. We are very happy and could not have been more pleased with the services. We definitely recommend Laurel Simmons to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thanks

Nelson and Lisseth Lozada

It had been 20 years since We last sold a home, and a lot had changed. Laurel patiently walked us through every step. From staging and photographing our home, running comparables to help us price it, and evaluating offers, Laurel was there with her expert advice. She also has a great assistant, Camille, staying on top of details. We ended up selling our home in 24 hours, with multiple offers, above list price. Laurel is the most thorough, personable,, and professional real estate agent we have ever had.

Mike and Katie Birge

Wow! Laurel Simmons knows the area and knows how to sell and buy houses! Diligently followed up our phone inquiry. “Do you think it is a good time to sell and move?” She said, ‘give me a week’ and came over with tailored (not off-the-shelf) market reports and spread sheets. She said, “yes!” In a few days produced our listing with excellent photos and vivid, accurate descriptions. Laurel’s professionalism resulted in a full time offer in 6 hours which fell through. Not to worry, many daily showings, and another full price offer in 6 days, closing in less than a month. Buyers and sellers happy. She monitored every transaction and was present at major events. When busy with another client, her assistant, Camille, promptly answered every email, text, and call. Cannot do better than this agent who takes personal pride in her work and backs up her words with action!

Jim and Joette Humphrey

Best team ever ! July 6th, I met with Laurel, whom linked me to an amazing lender. Got me pre-approved the same day. My offer was accepted the next day (of course!). On July 31 I was signing the final documents and funded by 3PM. AMAZING!!! Forever in a very special place in my heart, Laurel, Camille and Dusty! Thank you for all your hard work and always being in contact and reachable.

Jesse Casique

Laurel is professional, knowledgeable and great to work with. She looks out for her clients on a personable level. I can not say enough good things about Laurel and her team! The best and most Highly recommended realtor in the valley!

Melissa Nicolaysen Wenner

Laurel helped me purchase my first home and we just moved in this weekend. She went above and beyond in absolutely every way. Laurel helped us create the best offer; writing letters to the seller, going over values of homes in our area, along with upgrades that changed our homes price point, and gave us a plethora of information to make the most informed decision. She provides both exceptional knowledge and the tenacity to get you want you want, combined with an understanding nature and patience to help you through the home buying process. She made this feel like a team effort, which was huge for me. I will never go to anyone else to purchase or sell a home and would recommend her to anyone. She also has amazing contacts, each one the best in their field, who make you feel like their only priority. She personally came to my new home to help with items that I would have never expected help from my realtor on and had an electrician at my home literally 10 minutes after I spoke with her. Unreal! 11/10. Laurel and Camille are amazing!

Laurel Simmons

I was so impressed with Laurel and her team when selling our home. They were professional, organized, and always responsive to our questions. They made it easy and we felt nothing but full confidence in the advice they gave to us. We felt like they genuinely cared about us as individuals and worked hard to get us top dollar for our home. They took the time to really explain the process to us, and produced a beautiful listing for our home that garnered a lot of interest right off the bat. The process was seamless and in the end we were very happy with the results. I would recommend Laurel to anyone. You will not be disappointed!!

Amanda Speirs

Laurel has represented me on my purchase and my recent home sale. She is hands down the best! She is very knowledgeable, great negotiator, follows through on any questions, and a great overall communicator from beginning to end. Her assistant, Camille, and Laurel make a great team and so happy to work with you both on my real estate transactions. Thank you for all your help!!

Wendy Stewart

Laurel is the best. I would never consider using any other real estate agent. She does an outstanding job listing your home complete with professional photographs, staging, online marketing, etc. Laurel will find the right buyer for your home every time. You never have to track her down for updates, she's always on top of it. She does a thorough market analysis to get the price right and gets you top dollar. She'll also find you the home of your dreams and connect you with all the professionals you need during your selling and buying process. Partnering with Laurel also includes awesome perks like pies at Thanksgiving and pool parties in the summer! Like I said, she's the BEST!

Katherine Larsen

Laurel and Camille make an excellent team to sell houses. We really like Laurel's honesty and directness in dealing with us and with her boldness in helping us set good prices for our properties. She helped us sell two duplexes and then our house. When we went looking for a house in another part of our state, she was up front in telling us that that part of the state was not her forte and she suggested a good agent she knew in that area. Her assistant Camille is organized and effective in following up with all the details to make sure all the paperwork is in order and timely. Both are very good at keeping us informed of what is going on in the selling process.

Ann Merrill

Excellent real estate skills. Superb networking skills for selling a home, managing sale, and all related care of your home. All required documentation completed on time and correctly.

Laurel Simmons helped our family find and purchase a home in West Valley City, UT 4 years ago. Her excellent customer service and expertise are the reasons that when we decided to sell this home in preparation for a move to another one, we again contacted Laurel. We again enjoyed excellent service plus great advice on the pricing and marketing of our home.

Christine Bell

We were relocated to Utah with little notice and even less time to actually look for a home. Others I had worked with recommended Laurel, and we understand why. Laurel and Camille listened to what we were looking for, and when we changed our minds after one afternoon, they changed their offerings to suit what we were requesting. Most will say this should be expected of a good agent, and we agree, but it was what happened after making the offer that truly made us feel like we made the right choice in an agent. We had 1 and 1/2 days to look, and then we were out of state. Laurel and Camille helped with all the little extras that needed to be done, and continued to help with recommendations post our sale. I feel both women are genuine and knowledgeable. Thank you so much for everything you helped with to make this move as smooth as possible.

Bruce and Lisa Stropp

Laurel and Camille were excellent to work with. After looking we decided to build a new Ivory Home in Stansbury Park. Laurel knew the Ivory contract in and out. We have had a lot less issues with our house and have had an excellent experience. This is due to Laurel's due diligence and advice. We highly recommend having not just a realtor but the right realtor. Laurel was the right one for us.

Colton Nickel

Working with Laurel and her team made what can be a very stressful process of buying a home exciting. Laurel works hard to get to know you and understand what you and your family need in a home. Laurel is in constant contact with you, which is a huge benefit in a fast moving market. This constant communication made us feel like we were always on the same page. Laurel and her team did the work, we just had to make the decisions. She was a true advocate for us. This is amazing to find in a realtor in an industry that can feel like every man for themselves. Laurel and her team have the knowledge base to let you know what is achievable. They also have built relationships with the endless contacts you may need: inspectors, lenders, contractors, plumbers etc. If Laurel and her team are not reaching out to these contacts for you then when you call you are able to drop her name and the work (or miracles) get done. We have zero complaints in the process of working with Laurel. If you are looking for a realtor, we highly recommend Laurel Simmons and her team.

Laurie Miller

Laurel is extremely knowledgeable about the entire buying and selling experience. She is very attentive to what her customers need.
She coached us through every move and due to her experience she was able to predict, prepare and then navigate us around any issues before they became a problem.
She is by far the best Realtor and we will recommend her to everyone we know.

Scott Dietz

We bought a house with Laurel and loved working with her so much that we sold our home with three years later. She and her team helped us get our house ready and to sell quickly. She gave us practical advice and was super approachable during the whole process. She is always friendly, genuine and honest with you. What you see is what you get with Laurel. There were no surprises during the process as she kept us informed on what could happen and what did happen during the process . We highly recommend using Laurel as your realtor.

Norman Shurtliff

Laurel Simmons is the best agent we have encountered! She responded quickly to our initial inquiry and carefully listened to our home desires and financial stipulations. When we met, she presented a tailored, comprehensive plan of action, gave us a great overview of possibilities, and then showed us several regions in Salt Lake areas, describing individual area characteristics. She frequently asked us to clarify and carefully watched our reactions to each showing. She composed well researched showing schedules, each one more in line with our interests. After we found the home, she answered questions about construction, arranged meetings with officials, and thoroughly presented closing costs and procedures. Her professionalism and concern for our satisfaction went way above the standard, extending to making sure the home was in good condition when we arrived and follow-up calls when we moved in. Always truthful, thoroughly knows this area, always focused on our home needs, this agent is the best!

Jim Humphrey

I highly recommend Laurel and Camille, they are very professional, communicate well, are there to help and easy to work with. Their knowledge of Utah and surrounding areas was awesome and they were able to facilitate a busy time in my life and make buying a home as easy at it could be in a competitive market like SLC. You can't be in better hands!

Mike Dymowski

Laurel is THE BEST realtor we have ever worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable about Utah. If it were not for Laurel, we would not be Utahans right now. We are so grateful that we were referred to her. If we move again, she will be the first person we call. She is exceptional whether you are buying or selling!


Laurel is so professional, yet personable. She is the most competent realtor we have ever worked with, and I highly recommend her! If not for Laurel, we would not own our home today. Thank you, Laurel!

Joette Humphrey

Laurel and her team are great to work with! I’ve had the privilege to work with her numerous times and can honestly say she cares about her clients. You don’t always get that type of service. I would her recommend to anyone I know.

Tyler Payne

Laurel is an amazing realtor. We were out of state clients 7 years ago coming into Utah knowing nothing. She is very knowledgeable of the Salt Lake area and more. We gave her a week to find us a house and she did it! No pressure there. She is an outstanding negotiator! Bought the house in November but needed a fast move-in December with having a two weeks to get a basement finish before we moved in. Laurel took on the role not only as our realtor but as a contractor over seeing the progress day by day since we couldn’t be there. She didn’t have to go above the call of duty but she did. Basement turned out better than we thought. After 7 years being in Utah it was time again to relocate to Texas. Laurel not only found us another realtor down there but she also sold our house 7 days prior to listing. She puts her heart and soul into her job. Let’s not forget her right arm Camille (assistant) who is behind the scenes work as hard. She too is amazing! We were so lucky to have had Laurel and Camille both times. We not only had a great business experience but a great friendship. Thank you both. Highly recommend!!!!

Wendy Sutton

I fully endorse the services of our realtor Laurel Simmons and her associate Camille Nickel. Patient, proactive, result oriented and thoroughly professional would sum up their service. From the time of initial market review until closing the sale, they followed up on every single detail and were always on top of things to resolve any issues. Laurel has an excellent grip on market conditions and her advice was instrumental in making decisions on the sale. Laurel understands the relocation process well. She was able to work through many curve balls that came along during the sale through relocation. Her coordination between different stakeholders was crucial to hold the deal together and take it through closing. A special shout out to Camille for her exceptional support role.

Sule Nishchal

We bought our house in SLC Eastbench area with Laurel a few years ago, and did not hesitate to use her help to sell it, as we are moving out of state. Both times we got good deals, thanks to Laurel's knowledge of the area, and her negotiating skills. On both occasions, we have been fully taken care of: great insights, full info on properties of interest, paperwork taken care of, responsiveness when we had questions, basically everything one can think of. We would like to mention that Laurel's assistant - Camille - was a fantastic asset, an absolute pro, and a great human being.
Besides being extremely professional and knowledgeable, Laurel also proved to be very good at controlling the emotional part of the process: when we needed support she provided it, when we were getting too excited she was absolutely level-headed to keep our thoughts straight. Great experience no matter how one looks at it. Thanks!

Dmytro Pesin

Laurel was our rock throughout a rollercoaster ride to find an accessible condo in Salt Lake City. Along with Camille, she did not give up on our search for a home that had to include very specific features. We love our new home!

After our condo purchase, Laurel got right on selling our home. With her knowledge of the area and the real estate climate, our home quickly went under contract.


If you're looking for a true expert who genuinely cares about you and what you're looking for, you cannot go wrong with Laurel and her team. As first time buyers, she patiently walked is through the process making sure we understood exactly what was happening and what we needed to do or not do at every step. She made us feel like we were her only clients. I have no doubt that her expertise lead to our offer being accepted in a very competitive market. Whether buying or selling, you cannot go wrong with Laurel in your corner.

Sara Lee

We've known Laurel for a long time but this was the first time we actually used her for our realtor. When we first met her for an interview she came fully prepared with brochures, comparisons, her background history and knowledge of the Sandy area. During the listing process she kept us well informed of the schedule, getting photos, brochures, and online listing bringing everything together at the promised time. This may be out of the norm but we had an accepted offer on our house in 8 days. We would highly recommend her and her assistant Camille.

Chuck Buettner

Laurel helped this east coast family to acclimate to SLC area. Showed us great houses and walked us through this process. Would recommend Laurel and her team absolutely!!

Joanie Nill

I can't say enough about how happy we were working with Laurel & Camille . They are so professional in everything they do. More importantly this team has tremendous integrity. Laurel knows the market & is a great negotiator but also a very fair minded person. I give this team my highest rating. I would recommend them to family, friends or anyone else who needs a personable, knowledgable, competent team. Thank you for getting us through a very stressful time in our lives. You really made a difference!!

Maureen Sparrow

People kept telling us that buying a house and dealing with a realtor would be a nightmare. But working with Laurel, and her assistant Camille, was really a dream. Laurel is intelligent, kind, responsive, and passionate about her clients and their needs and wants. She was excellent in negotiating our bid and contract, items that turned up on the inspection list, and timelines. She got us immediately into every house we asked to look at, and responded well to some really tight timelines. I was really impressed by her knowledge of the market and trends, neighborhoods, schools, and about each of the houses we looked at. She always came with a stack of comps for us to look through. She noticed a lot of things we would have overlooked at some of the houses we went in. She helped us find inspectors, appraisers, title company, and with our mortgage insurance. Laurel really is "all in" when it comes to being committed to her clients. She even put up with us leaving on vacation in the middle of our contract period and I had full trust and confidence she would take care of things while we weren't in cell-phone range. She didn't make me feel bad for calling her after 10 pm at night, because chances were, she was still up working for her clients. This was a first-time home-buying experience for us, and she was so patient in answering all of our questions and felt strongly about actually educating us instead of leading us along blindly. There wasn't a single frustrating or negative experience working with Laurel. I would recommend her to every person I know, if I could.

Marissa Empey

I loved working with Laurel. Laurel knows the Salt Lake, Davis and Utah Valleys and the real estate market in these locations, always being right on top of any new homes that came on the market as soon as they came on. She never pushed her agenda or what she may have thought I should want in a home on me, it was always about what I wanted and needed. Impeccable customer service. She was responsive and available whenever I needed her with any question no matter how great or inconsequential the question was. If I had a question at 10 pm at night I could always text her and would get a reply in a very timely manner. During the process of selling my current home as well as purchasing my new home she walked me through all the steps and made sure nothing was missed. When my skylight in my current home was found needing to be replaced during the inspection, she did all the research and found someone who could do it right away and followed up with them to be sure it was done as I was out of the country. When looking at new homes she would bring to my attention any problems in the home if she saw any as well as any extras the owners had put into the home. She knew which areas of the valley to stay away from with future highway or road construction that could impact the future value of the home or any other issues that might be pertinent to its future value. I found Laurel to have a wealth of knowledge not only about homes, real estate and the market but also had a great list of resources for anything that came up from a great mortgage person to individuals who could replace my garage door and do my inspection. She is very easy to work with, very professional, friendly and fun. I always felt I could trust her and that my best interest came first, that I came first and not the sale. I highly recommend Laurel and her assistant Camille.

Marla Feild

Laurel has been amazing! We had interviewed a couple other realitors and we had planned on using one of them. But then a friend kept raving about her realitor that her and all her friends had used. We decided to interview her and instantly we felt so comfortable with her but the main reason we picked her was that we could tell instantly she had our families best interest at heart. She truly wanted to help us sale our home and find our dream home what ever that would take. It wasn't about making a quick sale it was about making the best decisions for our family that inturn benefited us more in the long run as well as making things happen fast.
Then as we started working together I kept forgetting she is our realitor and I kept thinking she was a long time good friend. I call her and I am so excited to talk to her. If she is not in a position to talk she is always very quick to respond.

She had foot surgery at the time we listed our home (a couple days before) and although I knew she was in a lot of pain she was always there for us with our listed home and would limp her way through potential houses with us because she wanted to be there for us and she loved seeing the homes that were listed. When she couldn't be there because of her foot which was only a couple times she would send her amazing assistant Camille.

We decided to build and the builders will be done in two weeks. She has been unvelivably helpful and has gone to bat for us many, many times when she didn't have too. I am sad that we will no longer need her services within the next few weeks. I may have to call her and think of reasons to talk to her and keep inviting her over to our new home just to keep her in our lives.

Jennifer Holt

I recently had the opportunity to work with Laurel in the sale of my home in Lehi, Utah. This was the second time I have worked with Laurel and when the time comes for me to purchase a new home, I certainly hope to have her as my real estate agent. I am very impressed with her knowledge and expertise in the industry. I know that anyone who has the opportunity to work with her will feel comfortable and confident to have her as their agent.


Laurel was very professional and thorough with us through the process of buying our home. She even did one last check of our house prior to closing and found that the refrigerator had been leaking and there was water damage. Within 24 hours she had fixed the leak and had the current homeowners fix the water damage prior to us closing. Outstanding service and we would definitely use and recommend Laurel in buying or selling a home.

Katie McLaughlin

Laurel and her team are fantastic!!! Laurel gave us insight on how to prepare our property for sale. She has a very professional approach, yet friendly and warm. We highly recommend Laurel and her team.

Ted Rempp

I had a really great experience with Laurel Simmons and Camille Nickel being my realtors. I sold a home and bought one. They were great at showing me lots of homes that I was interested in and giving me a professional opinion. I would use them again.

Celeste Floyd

Laurel is, by far, the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about market conditions in our area. She never once dropped the ball, always kept us notified of developments on our home and, when asked, gave us expert advice. Laurel promoted our home in a very impressive fashion and made sure we could be found on various marketing media, especially the internet. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell their home.

Frank Platt

Laurel helped us to sell a home, and purchase a new home. She was extremely helpful, patient, knowledgeable, and always quick to reply on both the selling and buying side. She made sure that all of our questions about each home (selling and buying) were always answered and that we really understood what was going on during each step of both processes. Laurel represented us like an expert on our negotiations with both homes, and went above and beyond what we asked her to do. She was available any time we wanted to see a home, and got us an offer on the home we were selling within days. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience, and that was because we couldn't have asked for a better Realtor. We would highly recommend Laurel to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

Ciege Adams

She was amazing!! Went above and beyond what any other Realator ever did for us. She knew what we wanted and searched her heart out for us. So great full for the friendship we have made!

Jennifer Blumberg

This is my 3rd transaction with Laurel. I love working with her. She has an extensive knowledge & expertise of the local real estate markets. There isn't a neighborhood we went into that she didn't know about: Sales trends, demographics, market values, etc. She is great at negotiating with other realtors & her CMA's have been spot on. She is a very personable & professional. She is very responsive. You can reach her day, night, or weekends. She also has an awesome assistant in Camille Nickel. As a team they are fantastic. I recommend Laurel to anyone I meet with a real estate need.

Duane Patchen

Laurel did an outstanding job selling our home! We listed it just before a 2 week trip to Europe, and she expertly managed the showings, open house, and offers, as communicated very well, especially given the 8 hour time difference. She smoked out a bad offer within the first 24 hours, and locked in the right offer promptly. She stayed communicative throughout the closing process, and helped us navigate some last minute road blocks, so that our closing was not jeopardized. Laurel and her team are top notch, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in Utah.


Laurel is the best real estate agent we've ever worked with. We wanted a home in a very small geographic location, where homes are rarely for sale. Laurel was patient with us for over a year, while we waited to find the right home. Once we found the home, Laurel was readily available to handle the offer. During the negotiation phase, Laurel represented our interests very well. Most important, she is straightforward and forthcoming. In addition to being highly skilled, Laurel is also fun to work with!


We had not purchased a house in many years, and we had never done so in Utah. Laurel was very helpful and patient as we searched numerous alternatives. Finally after we identified the house we wanted to buy, Laurel did a great job in representing us during the various negotiations and during closing. (We did not attend the closing.) She did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a real estate agent.

Joseph Bell

Laurel Simmons is a true professional. She sold my father's home within a few days of being listed. In advance of the sale, she met with me to explain the process, answer questions, and review paperwork. She immediately notified me of showings and offers on the home and even helped move furniture with her truck. Laurel has a personal touch as a real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, honest, and hard working. She was sensitive to the emotional ties of my family home, appreciated the beauty and detail of my father's woodwork, and insured I received fair compensation. A few months later and upon my recommendation, Laurel also sold a home to my daughter. Laurel's expertise makes her a seller and buyer's advocate from listing to closing on a home.

Jacquie Catten

I am so happy with the service I received from Laurel and highly recommend her because she exceeded all of my expectations. She is a great communicator and kept me informed from beginning to end. Her follow up to my questions, eye for detail, and professionalism is top notch.

Wendy Stewart

Laurel hit the ground running and was successful in finding our new home meeting every requirement and need I had in the search. If that was not enough, the whole process including the closing took place within an amazing 3 weeks. I highly recommend Laurel and will work with her again when the time comes.


Laurel showed us properties that fit our scenario, but also show us some that were outside of what we originally described to show us what was available and open our eyes to the market, it's costs, and the differences between the neighborhoods and areas we had originally looked at.

She would continue to research and change her approach until we found the neighborhood and home we absolutely loved and fit our budget. We hadn't originally considered that area, but as she got to know us, Laurel was able to see it was a great fit.

Laurel was able to tell us about markets and prices, the way things were headed, and what we needed to do every step of the way. During negotiations she constantly spoke up asking questions we couldn't have thought of, getting us a better deal on upgrades and concessions and ultimately more house for our money. (We settled on building a home, rather than purchasing an existing home)

This was the second time we have had Laurel as our agent during the home buying process and she continued to out do herself on our behalf.

Laurel is not just an agent, she is OUR agent, and this will not be the last time we use her and her staff for their knowledge, services and skills.

Jason Myrup

Laurel has represented my husband and I in many real estate ventures. I find that she is very knowledgeable in her field. She relates very well to people and everyone feels comfortable with her. She is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. We feel it is always a pleasure to work with Laurel and will definitely call her again.

Cal and Vickie Robinson

Laurel was my realtor for the sale of 2 homes and the purchase of 1 home. The most impressive quality of Laurel is her ability to listen to her clients. She knows what you are looking for and does not waste your time as she represents you. She is extremely professional and keeps you up to date on the movement of your property. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor to sell or buy property.

Randy Smith

Laurel is extremely knowledgable and professional. We were new to the area and because of Laurel quickly became familiar with our surroundings and the perfect location to live. She listens to your likes and dislikes and doesn't waste your time on homes not meeting your needs. We decided on new home construction and she was with us every step of the way. We couldn't have been more satisfied with not only Laurel but her assistant Camille. Both are exceptional.

Renada Rasmussen

Laurel is genuine and knowledgeable. She was patient and willing to work with our lengthy process in finding the right home for our family. Laurel is a masterful negotiator who represents her clients well.

Our children adore Laurel--her ability to engage them made the house hunting process more enjoyable.

Laurel is resourceful and well respected by her colleagues. Her interpersonal skills are unparalleled. We highly recommend Laurel to be your Real Estate Professional of choice.

Diana Bass

I have relocated to Salt Lake City and was also a first time home-buyer in the U.S. Laurel and her team have been a great support of making this process as easy as possible for me. I was impressed by Laurel's knowledge of the area and dedication to find the right home for me.

Silke Voiss

Working with Laurel Simmons was like working with a true professional. Many may find it hard to believe that a realtor could care more about your personal happiness, than a sale. Simmons and her staff have proved to me that there are still great sales people out there. At no time did I feel pressured to pick a place that I was not 100% comfortable with. Laurel Simmons would take my calls day and night, many times very late or very early. I recommend Laurel Simmons for anyone who is looking for the best realtor. If you are first time home buyer like I was, do yourself a favor and take the stress off yourself. I give you my word they will not let you down, guaranteed.


As executor of my father's estate I was responsible for selling his home in Salt Lake City, while residing in Minnesota. After a disastrous experience with a different real estate agent, I was concerned about being able to manage this process long distance. Although Laurel came highly recommended to me, I cautiously agreed to work together sight unseen after extensive phone interview, review of prior sales, and comparison to other candidates. I needed not worry - Laurel was amazing throughout the whole process. She understands the market and strategizes to obtain the best, yet fair price; communicates openly yet tactfully in a timely manner; takes initiative to guide the process and keep progress on task; she visited my father's home on a regular basis, helped with garbage and mail and stayed on top of anything that was necessary to keep the empty home safe. Laurel quickly made me feel comfortable as I felt she had my best interests at heart. I had no idea it could matter so much to higher the RIGHT real estate agent. It does!!! I highly recommend Laurel.

Laurel has listed and sold two of my homes and helped me in the purchase of three homes during the last 8 years. Laurel is very knowledgable, hardworking and honest. She is quick to respond to any questions or concerns I have. I appreciate her work ethic and integrity. I will continue to work with Laurel in my Real Estate needs.

I relocated to Utah and had to find a house that would accommodate 3 small children and a 96 year old. In the two months that I was house hunting, Laurel showed me around 60 houses and gently guided me to a great house in the perfect neighborhood for me and my family. She also helped me steer clear of a house that had some serious issues, even though doing so meant she'd have to keep showing me houses. She also found me a mortgage broker who worked fast and got me a good rate.

Laurel is an outstanding realtor, and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone and everyone wanting to buy or sell property! She is extremely knowledgeable, ALWAYS prepared and never disappointed us. In fact, Laurel and her assistant went above and beyond in every aspect of our selling, looking and rebuilding a home process. We've been so impressed!

During this crazy adventure, Laurel guided us with expertise, never pushed her opinion but offered invaluable insight more than once. She was right there anytime we had a question, anticipated our needs and responded rapidly whenever we needed her.

Laurel is not only a great realtor, but an incredible person. She always treats us like we are her #1 priority, cares about you like a friend not a client, and we trust her completely.

We've LOVED working with Laurel!!

This was our first home buying experience. We worked through USAA, which found us a realtor who suited our needs. Knowing how personal buying a house can be, my husband and I truly hoped the realtor we were assigned with would be easy to work with. From our initial meeting with Laurel, we could tell she knew the market and heard our needs, concerns, dreams, and was going to help us find what we were wanting. We found exactly what we were looking for in 1 day of house tours!!! Laurel nailed it. We can't say enough great things about her. She was always willing to take our calls and keep us as up-to-date on the details of everything happening during the closing process of our home. We couldn't be happier. If we're still in Utah for the next house search, we'll definitely be using Laurel.

Laurel is an amazing real estate agent. She helped us both on the buy and sell side. After listing our home we had 2 offers after 5 days, while our neighbors had 0 offers after listing for months. And this wasn't an issue of a lower price. We were selling a condo, so most were similar and we sold ours for more than any had recently sold for in that area.
Laurel is good at assessing your wants and needs and then finding the perfect home to fit your situation. After sending us emails for about a week on possible houses we decided to drive around and look at some in person. The first day we actually started viewing the houses we found our dream home. It was exactly what we were looking for and it exceeded our expectations while staying within our price range. Because it was such a nice home at a good price there were 4 or 5 other offers we had to compete with. But, Laurel knew exactly what to do and helped us negotiate our way into the home.
Laurel truly cares about her clients. She has the knowledge and experience to handle any situation. Because we were first home buyers we had a lot of questions. This was a lot different than when we bought our condo. Laurel was able to answer all of our questions and explain things in a way we could understand. We are so happy to have worked with her and would recommend her to anyone in the market for buying or selling a home. You won't be disappointed because Laurel knows what she is doing and she is a fun person to work with.
