Home Seller Testimonial
We can't say enough about Laurie’s professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. She brings all these qualities to the table for her clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to their new home/community. We sold a home with Laurie in 2015. We picked her as our realtor because her reputation in TrotWood Acres. Laurie holds an annual yard sale within the Trotwood community and she mingles with the homeowners providing free access to her many talents.
Throughout the home selling process, Laurie was extremely responsive and thoughtful in her recommendations to us. We’ve worked with a lot of realtors over the years, and trust us Laurie is the most service-oriented realtor we’ve worked with.
Laurie doesn't forget you once the deal is done. We were moving out of state and she called around and found us a wonderful agent to represent us in our next home purchase. She has always come through with excellent, timely recommendations or just a friend to talk to if we have any questions. To this day, she always makes us feel like helping us is her highest priority. We highly recommend Laurie for your real estate transaction.

My husband and I were in need of a realtor to help us sell our home and we didn't know of anyone to contact. Laurie was recommended to me by a friend and she called me within an hour of leaving her a message. She has been very attentive to our needs and has made the entire process as smooth and stress free as possible. Our house sold in less than 2 days which is fantastic, but she assisted us with so much more than just finding us a buyer.

First Time buyers Testimonial
My husband and I recently used Laurie Kelly’s realty services to purchase our first home. We had no idea who we should choose so we went online to pittsburghmoves.com and found a few properties. We contacted the agent listed and set up 2 showings. Laurie did one and another agent did the other. A few hours later we were having trouble deciding which agent to go with when we received emails from both. The other agent sent us property listings that were more and $100,000 OVER our budget. Laurie sent us listings that were exactly what we were looking for so she won hands down.
No matter what time of day or evening, Laurie never failed to return calls, texts or emails. We did not ever feel like we were bothering her nor did we ever feel like ours was just another case. As we approached the time to put in an offer, we realized that our mortgage broker was dropping the ball on his end that that action needed to be taken. Laurie actually contacted him and his supervisor on our behalf. It was so comforting to know that she was truly on our side and that she was willing to go above and beyond to help us get what we needed.
Throughout the process, anxiety and apprehension were present for both myself and my husband. We have very different personalities and ways of dealing with pressure. Laurie was able to put both of us at ease and guide us through an important life event. She shared expertise and resources that I feel we would not have gotten elsewhere. She was in constant contact with the mortgage representative and arranged the inspection as well as the closing. Again, it was a relief to know that she was out there making things happen for us. We both work full time and this process would have dragged on indefinitely if we had to do all of these things ourselves. Also, our stress levels would have gone through the roof. Due to our extremely demanding work schedules, we were very impressed that Laurie had availability during evening and weekend hours. She was flexible and understanding of our time as well as our budget.
Needless to say, we have been thrilled with Laurie’s professionalism and expertise. We have already recommended her to co-workers. Although we hope to stay in our home for many years, if we had to move again, we would enlist Laurie immediately.
Angie and I would like to take this opportunity and thank you for all your help with finding and purchasing our new home. You really did give us a helping hand in making our dream of buying a home a reality.
From our very first meeting we could truly tell that your knowledge of the business and area was going to be a huge asset for our search. By listening to what we were looking for in the first meeting, you also showed that you were going to have our best interests at heart.
The communication throughout the process was impeccable. By taking the time to help us slow down the process in some cases and explain to us what was happening wand what was going to happen next, helped alleviate some of the worries of going through an unfamiliar process.
I know that I would absolutely recommend anyone looking for a house to come see you first. Professional service is hard to find these days, and you truly stand shoulders above in your business.
Again, thank you so much for helping us make our dream a reality.

First-Time Home Buyer Testimonial
We met Laurie while casually perusing some open houses one Sunday afternoon. She was showing a home in Moon Township and because she was so approachable, we retained her business card and called her a few months later when we were ready to get serious about buying a home. As first-time home buyers, we feel that Laurie was not only very knowledgeable, but also very patient. She thoroughly explained every step of the home buying process and made sure we understood everything clearly. We always felt comfortable asking her questions, even if we thought they were menial. Her coordination of showing us homes and guiding us through the closing process was seamless. Many people told us how overwhelming the whole home-buying process is, but with Laurie we never hit a bump in the road. In addition, Laurie always returned our phone calls and text messages in a timely manner. Laurie always had our best interests at heart. I will be sure to pass along her contact information to any friends in the area that are going to begin their journey of home ownership.

Top qualities: Great Results , Personable
Jessica hired Laurie in 2011.
Laurie is kind, caring and very knowledgeable. She helped us find the best home for our needs. She met us wherever and whenever was most convenient for us and really got to know our wants and needs for a home. She was always prepared for every house with every bit of information one would need. If we had a question, she answered us quickly using the many resources she has. Though house hunting was very stressful, Laurie found a way to make it fun. She really made the entire process a lot easier. I would highly recommend Laurie to any home buyer. You are missing out on the best if you don't! :)
Buyer/Seller Agent Testimonial
Sold Home/Bought another, August 22, 2011
My husband Chris and I were kicking around the idea of selling our house and buying a condo for approximately one year. One day I was searching online for condos that were for sale in our area when we finally took the plunge and called the listing agent. We lift a message and within five minutes she returned our call. That agent was Laurie Kelly. Laurie was so personable and down to earth with that first telephone call we went looking at condos with her that week. We listed our home with her within that month and Laurie guided us the whole way with her up-to-date knowledge of the real estate world. Laurie helped us price our home, and it sold within three months. Laurie also sent us condos within our price range with the criteria that we were looking for. When we bought our condo Laurie kept us informed of the progress of our transaction and what we needed to do next. She held our hands through the whole process as it had been 35 years since we had purchased our first home. Thank goodness for Laurie, as the real estate/mortgage business has really changed since the 1970’s. We now live in a beautiful two bedroom condo and absolutely love it. If you are looking to buy or sell we recommend you give her a call, you won’t be disappointed.

Sold home/bought another
I recently had the pleasure of listing my home for sale through Laurie Kelly. This was my first experience I ever had of selling a home and to be totally honest, the condition under which I had to sell my home was less than desirable. Going through a divorce is always tough but when you have the pressure of having to sell a home under a certain constraint, it only adds to the pressure. As soon as I met Laurie she immediately put me at ease and I felt comfortable explaining my situation to her so that she would understand my future ups and downs of emotions. Not only was she amazingly understanding and knowledgeable, she was also exceptional about responding immediately to all of my calls and emails knowing the time restraint with which we had to work.
Due to my odd schedule and frequency of having to travel for my career, Laurie was incredible at facilitating the showing of my home as well as open houses. Of course, Laurie also did a great job coordinating all necessary parties, such as: the closing company, buyers, sellers, etc. However, that is not what made Laurie so special. Laurie was very genuine and friendly throughout the entire process knowing that I needed someone there for me throughout this tough time. During the listing process, Laurie was way more that a Real Estate Agent. She was also an advisor, mother (Yes, it’s true), sometimes therapist, and most importantly, a friend. For never having met Laurie before in my life and being referred to her by my neighbor, something should definitely be said about how much I have grown to admire Laurie. She was able to turn a situation of pure fear into a result of genuine happiness for me. I don’t know if Laurie will ever know how much I truly appreciate her efforts in selling my home buy most importantly, she always had ALL of my best interests at heart. That is something that I will never forget.
Whoever shall read this testimonial, whether it is a prospective client, employer or whomever, please know that Laurie is not only an amazing Real Estate Agent, but also an amazing person.
I would be more than happy to use Laurie as my agent for all future transactions and as a matter of fact, we are working on finding me a new home right now J
Laurie gave us an amazing experience!!! My fiance and I were looking for our first home. From beginning to end, Laurie was knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and kind. When our first house fell through (not of her doing, issue with the inspection) Laurie helped us pick up, dust off, and keep looking. She remained responsive and respectful of our wishes throughout. We eventually found the perfect home, and Laurie made the closing process quick, easy, and mostly painless- she even came to us to pick up documents and bring them to the lender when issues arose! I cannot recommend Laurie Kelly highly enough. Thank you Laurie!! Becky P.
Dual Agent Testimonial
We recently had the pleasure of having Laurie Kelly act as dual agent for our home purchase. We initially contacted Laurie after we saw a home listing we liked and saw her name on the yard sign. She returned our call immediately to provide us with information and to discuss the possibility of seeing the property.
We immediately found Laurie to be friendly, informative, honest, genuine, and trustworthy. We felt no pressure from Laurie to buy at all, and we appreciated her genuine interest in our lives and our needs. Laurie possessed the integrity and honesty to quickly disclose all information, keeping our best interests in mind, even when it had the potential to derail the sale. Her communication was always prompt and appropriate in its manner, timing, and details.
Laurie is empathetic, sensitive, and seems to genuinely care about the families she works with and the stories of their lives. She encouraged us, as buyers, to write the sellers a personalized letter to let them know who we were and why we were interested in buying their home. That letter ended up being the start of a series of communications between us and the sellers that ended up with us feeling as if we were partners in a wonderful passing on of homes from one family to the next.
We were both impressed with how Laurie went the extra mile on both professional and personal levels. She was well-prepared with all the relevant information and facts, as well as provided recommendations of individuals provided ancillary home purchase services. Although we felt no pressure from her to utilize these individuals, we ended up using them anyway due to their proven light level of service and competitive prices. On the personal level, we connected will with Laurie. From a personal house-warming gift, to a card she thoughtfully gave us at our closing, we were continually impressed by her thoughtfulness and thoroughness.
Even though we are independent and self-reliant, Laurie quickly gained our trust through her hard work and attention to detail. We felt confident and well-guided throughout the process and were grateful to have an expert supervising each step of the transaction. We were shocked to find out later that she is young in her real estate career—we had assumed she had a lifetime of experience because she was so good at it!
We were very impressed with Laurie and will continue to recommend her to friends and family and fully intend to rely on her services again if we are ever in the market to purchase another home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Mcmurray, PA.
Laurie was attentive and responsive. She showed us so many houses and was very patient. She negotiated numerous terms for us so we could close without an issue, when the home inspection was not satsifactory. We relocated to area so we had little kowledge of best neighborhoods for our needs. She helped us through this process and was very caring about our family, even the dogs! Thanks Laurie. Highly recommended
Laurie helped us to sell our Townhouse. She had previously sold several other units in our neighborhood and knew the different models/units/options in our community very well. She was very enthusiastic during the listing period and manged to get several showings prior to the open house, had a full house during the open house and got us multiple offers shortly after. We would recommend her services, especially to anyone selling in Trotwood Acres.
markowskial Client, Seller
Laurie is a fantastic agent! My husband and I feel that Laurie is dedicated, flexible, hard-working, friendly, and enjoyable to work with. She did an awesome job marketing and selling our home much quicker than we ever expected. We are also working with her to find a new place to call home. She often calls, texts, or e-mails to tell us about homes that fit our criteria before we've even seen them. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell as well as our own friends and family.
Seller's second agent for her home listing
November 7, 2011
I want to thank you for all of your hard work and time you put into selling my townhouse! Your knowledge regarding the community and the comparables in the area made the process very easy and quick considering you were able to present several offers within the first month of the listing. I never imagined being able to close so quickly after putting the house on the market!
I appreciate your availability to my questions and always responding in a timely manner. I felt that the resources you had to offer assisted in representing my townhouse very efficiently which lead to the quick interest from prospective buyers.
My overall experience with the listing and closing was effortless on my part and I owe that to you for taking care of setting the appointments and keeping me informed on timelines. I will definitely recommend you to my family and friends who are in need of a realtor and will also contact you if I have a need for myself in the future.
Thank you for everything!

Seller Testimonial (sent a letter out to their neighbors)
We are excited to share that we recently closed on the sale of our home, 92 Castleview! We moved to Castleview in July of 2010 and absolutely loved our home. Unfortunately we were relocated to Erie and had to put our house on the market in July of 2011.
After 6 months on being on the market, we hadn’t received any offers. We spoke to a friend who lived in a nearby Heartland community, and were given Laurie Kelly’s contact information. She was highly recommended and known to be the “go to” real estate agent for Heartland townhomes.
When we first met Laurie we could feel her energy, enthusiasm and passion for her job. She knew we had to sell our home quickly and was honest in letting us know where our home needed to be priced and how it needed to be staged for a quick sale. We hired Laurie, followed her advice, and less than 30 days later we had a contract on our home!
Laurie was extremely knowledgeable about the current housing market and took the time to contact Heartland Homes to find out the cost of each individual upgrade in our home. She included a breakdown of these prices in a wonderful brochure about our house that potential buyers loved. Laurie followed up with every person who showed interest in our home and was diligent in keeping us updated on all showings. Her communication and follow through is amazing!
We have worked with several different real estate agents and know that it can be hard to find agents who truly do everything in their power to help their clients. Laurie is one of the few. If you or any one you know may be thinking about moving, we highly recommend Laurie Kelly. You can find out more about Laurie on her website, www.lauriesyouragent.com
