Laurel was born and raised here, in Austin Texas which gives her an advantageous perspective on real estate in the central Texas area, and an understanding of the unique differences within Austin's various communities. This, combined with Laurel's active lifestyle, and you've got a realtor that knows not only the number of bedrooms and bathrooms of a home, but understands the particulars of your dream home, and knows where to find it. She has seen the immense change taking place in our city, which is probably why she is such an effective realtor. She knows Austin better than anyone and can effectively identify her clients needs and wants to provide them with their dream property.
Moving to Austin or within Austin can be quite difficult due to high demand. Therefore, one can never be overly prepared. Laurel gave us some advice for first time home buyers. "Get pre-approved before you start looking, and choose a full-time realtor that knows the market well and can represent you strongly." Getting pre-approved before you look for a home ensures the sellers that you are a serious buyer. It gives you a stronger platform as a buyer, which you will need in Austin due to high demand in real estate here.
Keep up the great work, and congratulations on your recent nomination. It is well deserved.
