The Hovens

This is now the second home we have purchased with the guidance and expertise Laura provides. Laura is a very professional, detail oriented, knowledgeable, and most importantly trustworthy broker. Laura did a phenomenal job with negotiating the terms and conditions of our contract, coordinating the inspections, and assisting in the closing process of our new home. She went out of her way to ensure we were purchasing the right home for us by providing us with the resources needed during the decision making process. We would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for an amazing agent!!

Brian & Sherry Woods

Laura Flores did a very good job in selling our $1 million plus home. This market can take some time to sell when it is in this price range but we feel we were priced right and had several showings with very positive feedback on the house and no issues with the price. Laura was present at every showing and made herself available when we had questions or other Agents needed help in understanding the community. Laura cares and it shows. Great Job!

Bradley & Cynthia Herrington

We are very pleased how Laura handled the situations with both the buyer’s agent and the requests from the buyers. This sale was way more stressful than I anticipated it would be. I appreciated how much Laura kept in touch with us and reassured us throughout the whole process. I will recommend Laura to everyone I know who is looking to sell or buy a property.

Jan Moore

Laura Flores was very friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient in our dealings with her from start
to finish. We worked with her to sell two houses and we’re extremely pleased working with Laura.

Peter Demaras

After renting my house for two years via another realtor working for another real estate office, it became clear my house was deliberately being run into the ground. Having decided to list it for sale, Laura Flores took valuable time out of her schedule to make sure all required maintenance work was done (as we live in another state), and the house brought back to marketable condition.

I have never had a realtor go above and beyond like she did in not only selling my house, but
protecting my asset as well. In my book,there is no other realtor to use.

Dr. Derek Clarke & Doreen Wisener

Keep Laura happy! She is the best! We would deal with her again in a heartbeat. She showed us this property twice in two consecutive days (Friday and Saturday) and we started negotiations on Saturday and completed negotiations on Sunday. So not only was her weekend consumed with us but that weekend transaction went very smoothly. Subsequent to that, she was so helpful in explaining NC regulations, finding a legal representative and inspectors for us and then coordinating all those schedules and then meeting them at the house. She is so accommodating and organized and we always felt she had our best interests in mind. We were just very fortunate to have found her.

Alice Gregory

This is the third property Laura has handled for me, and I have found her professional involvement to be of the highest order in all instances. She knows her business, communicates well, and has been a pleasure to deal with.

Debbie Apicerno

Laura was very detail oriented & kept us informed start to finish and beyond! Best Realtor I have ever utilized!
