"If you require a real estate agent, I would strongly recommend Laura Underwood. Laura is extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market. She is able to clearly explain all the steps in both buying and selling a home and is very thorough and professional in handling all issues involved in completing a real estate transaction. Buying or selling a home can be stressful but Laura's attention to detail helps to reduce the stress. Being born and raised in Cambridge gives Laura a definite advantage over other agents. She knows the area very well and can give helpful information about schools, shopping districts, parks and recreational facilities. I personally appreciated the fact that Laura was accessible to me throughout the sale of our home. She answers her own calls and when she wasn't immediately available she would always return my calls in a prompt manner. There are obviously lots of choices when it comes to hiring a real estate agent. However, if you want an agent that is professional, honest, hard-working, knowledgeable and accessible, consider giving Laura Underwood a call. You won't regret it!" - Bruce and Muriel Johnston.
"My fiancé and I had the privilege of working with Laura after trying to sell our house privately and finding it more difficult then originally anticipated. Laura was one of those few realtors who were willing to show our private home to her clients. When we followed up with Laura to inquire if her clients had interest, Laura asked for an hour of our time to discuss how we could be disadvantaged trying to sell our home privately. An hour was all that was needed for Laura to convince us to work with her as our agent. We raised the price of our home to accommodate for commission and within 48 hours Laura came to us with an offer. Our house was sold for more than we were asking as private sellers and we were very comfortable with that.
Laura is very professional, punctual, and approachable. She makes you feel very comfortable and at ease with the process of selling your home, which for those who have experience know this can be very stressful. We recommend Laura to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank-you Laura for making our home sale stress free!" - The Terpstra’s
"Laura recently helped my husband and I find a new home in Cambridge. Relocating to Cambridge was the final step in a series of major career and life changes over the past 6 months for both my husband and I, and house hunting was the task we were dreading the most!
However, with help from Laura, the house search moved rapidly and painlessly. Her energy and enthusiasm for the house hunting process kept us focused and motivated. We truly enjoyed working with Laura as a professional and getting to know her as a friend." - Mrs. Strand.
"To say the very least, my husband and I have had a wonderful experience using Laura as our real estate agent. Laura is not only personable, punctual and family oriented, but she is also extremely knowledgeable.
Laura helped us find a house that felt like home as soon as we walked through the door. She possessed all the right qualities to make sure that we felt comfortable at each stage in this transition.
When we first met with Laura, we had given her a list of criteria- along with some " wish list" items that we were looking for in our new home. This list, that I felt was near impossible to fulfill, seemed to be an easy task for Laura. She took the time to really get to know us and search for houses that met most, if not all, of our ideals: all while managing to stay within our budget. We ended up with a house that checked all of the boxes (except one). This was the house that we put an offer in on.
Before we could submit our offer, we learned that the house was expecting another offer at the same time: a buyer's worst nightmare. How could we compete when we weren't comfortable going at full asking price?
Without previously selling our current house, we really weren't in a strong buying position; however, Laura suggested some strategies to use to ensure that our offer was the most attractive to the current sellers. We received a call later that day stating that our offer had been accepted!
With the home inspection being the only item on the list, Laura helped to walk us through and gave us a range that was within reach of what we had originally estimated. She showed us a list of comparables with the relative listing and selling prices of each property. By already purchasing a new house, we needed to make sure that we priced our accordingly.
This next part may seem unreal, - perhaps even made up- but becasue of Laura's excellent pricing strategies and amazing networking capabilities, the day our house went up on the market, we had two interested buyers. We ended up accepting an offer that night from the first appointment to come through our home!
Overall, I would definitely recommend Laura as an outstanding agent that goes above and beyond the standard of duty of care for her clients. My parents have already contacted her to search for a new home." - Mrs. Hexter
"In Februray of this year (2010), we approached Laura Underwood to list our house. She came highly recommended from our next door neighbor, whose house she had listed and sold over the previous weekend.
Laura listened to our needs and ideas and presented us with a game plan that would meet them. We were very pleased when, within one day, she presented us with an offer that was just shy of our asking price. The sale of our home, with Laura an the helm, went off without a hitch!
That was the easy part. Finding us a new place to live with the very strict restrictions we placed on her didn't seem to faze her at all. Over the next few weeks, she worked diligently, setting up showings based on our hectic schedules, all the while knowing we had a certain time frame in which to work. She was always available at the end of a dialing finger when we had questions about this place or that, and we had a lot of questions!
Well within the time limit, she found the perfect condo for our two special four legged friends and us. We moved in on April 15th, 2010 and love every minute of it.
We have never had the best of luck with real estate, but feel truly blessed to have met Laura. If someone in the area is thinking about moving, our automatic response is: " Have we got an agent for you!" We feel no hesitation when it comes to recommending Laura to friends or family. She knows her stuff and projects and aura of confidence and professionalism.
Thank you, Laura for the great work you have done for us and when the time comes to pack up our belongings again, there is not doubt in my mind what agent we will be calling." - The Henry's, Kitchener, Ontario
"To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to give Laura Underwood my highest recommendation. The service we received from Laura was exceptional. Laura possesses all attributes necessary to be an excellent Realtor. Just after the second day of meeting with her, she knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. She is very patient and kind with her clients and is very professional and personable. We are first time home buyers and were really nervous about purchasing of first home. She made us feel very comfortable and really took the time to walk us through every detail of buying a new home and what to expect. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer. She clearly takes pride in doing a good job and we could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process. We can't thank her enough for her professionalism; expertise and hard work in helping us find our home in Cambridge. We love our home, the neighbourhood, and the community. We would definitely recommend her services to anyone!" - Mr. & Mrs. Silva, May 2010
We are writing this brief letter to express how thankful we are to have stumbled across you in our "2010 home adventure`.
In the past we have had real issues with a real estate agent, and we were determined not to make the same mistake twice. Both Rachel and I agreed to try at least two agents out and see who we felt could represent us best. From the moment we met you, both Rachel and I felt very comfortable and at ease. Not only are you understanding, but you were very quick to see when we were at ease, and when we were not.
Again, we thank you so much for all of your help and handholding when we needed it. Not only did you help us prep our old home, but you are also QUITE the negotiator. We totally credit you with a quick sell (ONE DAY!)
To reiterate, we are exeedingly thrilled with your service (and handholding where required). We will continue (and have) recommeded you to everyone." - Sincerely yours, Mr. and Mrs. Bain
