Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Laura is an absolute pleasure to work with. She's extremely knowledgeable in her craft, but at the same time makes it like a "friend" experience.
Laura was amazing throughout the entire process. She went above and beyond during our purchase journey and made sure we avoid trick pitfalls. Our process wasn't ideal due to builder and lender, but Laura was always there during the critical moments and did her very best to help us out.
Our family can highly recommend Team Papritz - two homes sold and one home bought. The most recent home sale was a challenge to quickly prepare and to correctly price in a rapidly changing market. Laura and her team did a great job of marketing the house, communicating to the buyers’ agents, and anticipating any issues that might come up. The result – the house was under contract one week after it was listed and closed without issue three weeks later. A win, win for all involved. Will definitely reach out to Laura Papritz’s Team for future real estate needs.
Laura Papritz and her team were AMAZING! This was my first time going through the home-buying process. She made sure I understood what I was doing and why/how it was important. During our meetings, it was clear she had a thorough understanding of the market and process. The journey was filled with highs and lows, but Laura and her team were there to support us every step of the way. I greatly enjoyed working with Laura and would recommend her to anyone thinking about purchasing or selling a home!
Laura Papritz is an exceptional realtor. She demonstrated extraordinary commitment to learning our needs, being responsive, highly relatable, ethical, and knowledgeable. When an unusual challenge arose as we purchased our house, she gave personal attention, time, and commitment to rectifying the concern in a manner well beyond what we expected. She is seasoned and has excellent negotiation skills. The depth of her professional caring, diligence, and commitment is truly extraordinary. She has an excellent team and is well connected to lenders and other needed services. We initially met Laura when she showed up for an appointment that was missed by another agent. We found that Laura continued to be present in ways others were not! We are so grateful that we used Laura Papritz and her team and recommend her with great confidence that you will be delighted with her professional services!
