Laura helped me find my condo when I moved from New York to the Boston area. The move was the result of a difficult transition moment in my life; and I had been miserable about the prospect, hated the thought of moving, and had felt completely and generally overwhelmed. Laura came to the rescue from our very first meeting, during which I must have been something of a downer, sighing and moping as much as I was. She helped me think through what I wanted and needed; helped break the process down into thoughtful steps; took the time to really understand, in detail, the kind of place I wanted to end up inhabiting. I consider myself a very finicky client moreover--and at the time was, frankly, quite prepared to be disappointed. She met the challenge with grace and integrity. And I even ended up learning a lot, for she is not only extremely knowledgeable about the real estate business, she's got an impeccable eye. She saw, and could assess, the tiniest details in various homes, and could talk about workmanship, craft, aesthetics in ways that helped me weigh pros and cons easily and honestly. She was patient, generous with her time, deeply insightful and just plain smart. It was an unexpected joy to work with her, and I absolutely love my new home. I am grateful to Laura and am happy to recommend her as highly as I can.
