Laurens was as nice and helpful as they come! My wife and I were picky and changed our minds every other day, but Laurens was patient and dedicated to finding us the right house the entire time. It was obvious that she is a native Charlottean and knows the insides and outs of every neighborhood. Highly recommend!

Very knowledgeable, no pressure, and patient. We had a great first-time home buying experience with Laurens. She clearly took the time to understand us and what we were looking for. She found the perfect place for us and we closed 2 days after it listed. She also added a home warranty to the seller closing costs that saved us nearly $10K in a new A/C system 8 months later....

Laurens and Frank helped us buy our first house in early 2014. They helped us find a house that matched all of our criteria (even knew about it a day before it was officially listed!). They were also very patient with our many first time homebuyer questions. I would recommend Frank and Laurens to any potential buyers!

‐ Lilla Colpini

Laurens and Frank are an amazing team! My husband and I were first-time home buyers in Charlotte last summer and were eager to buy in a specific area under a tight timeline. Laurens and Frank made it a priority to start working with us quickly and we found the perfect house within a week! Laurens and Frank are incredibly professional and also really fun to work with and... Read More

Laurens and Frank were extremely personable and trustworthy. Both provided excellent service and had my best interests in mind throughout the process, making the whole endeavor a smooth and pleasant experience. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

Frank made the experience for me, a first time home buyer, easier then I could have imagined. Being a young guy from Charlotte and pretty particular in what I was looking for, Frank understood what I wanted completely and kept me posted whenever a viable option hit the market. He was there every step of the way through finding the home, negotiations, and even helping me with... Read More

Working with Laurens and Frank was a great experience. I've already recommended them to several friends and family members. They will 100% receive my repeat business.

​We had an excellent home buying experience with Laurens from start to finish. She had been on the lookout for a home for us in a specific area, and she helped us find the perfect home that maximized our budget without compromising on our desired location. We also feel we saved money because of her market knowledge & negotiation skills. As two working professionals, we... Read More

Frank was great throughout the process. He has great knowledge of the market and made himself available whenever it was convenient for me. He was even better at the negotiating table, where he saved me a lot of money.

‐ Harris Ralston

My wife and I recently moved to Charlotte and reached out to Laurens at the recommendation of a friend. At the time, we were weighing our options of renting versus buying, and Laurens patiently helped us make an educated decision to purchase our first home. In a process that is often described as stressful and intimidating, our experience was overwhelmingly positive, as a... Read More

Laurens and Frank recently served as my buying agents on a new home purchase in the Eastover neighborhood of Charlotte, NC. I found their team to be exceptional in every facet of the service they provide. From our first meeting until the close on the property they served with class and integrity. Their knowledge of my particular market was second to none. Furthermore, they... Read More

Laurens and Frank worked with me for my first home-buying experience. They made me feel comfortable throughout every step of the process (almost all of which was unknown to me) by providing critical knowledge, a high level of responsiveness, and flexibility, as my criteria changed. They were patient, diligent, and candid. I am eternally grateful for their hard work and they... Read More

‐ Matt Williams

Laurens represented my wife and I in our search for a new home in Q3-2012. She identified a rare short sale opportunity that was well priced and included every single criteria we highlighted as a requirement. Even given the abnormal nature of the sale, Laurens executed each step of the process flawlessly and with a great sense of urgency. She advised us on pricing to place... Read More

‐ Matt McAulay

Laurens worked with me through my first home purchase. In buying your first home, one has many questions and concerns. Laurens did a spectacular job in answering all questions and putting all concerns at ease (even providing advice on concerns I wasn’t aware of). She was there for me at all hours, and went beyond the duties of a normal agent. She was efficient by providing... Read More

‐ Rocky Patel

Laurens and her brother Frank provided my wife and I with an exceptional home buying experience. From showing and finding the right house for us, putting in an offer and consulting us through the negotiations process, to signing on the dotted line, Laurens was with us the entire way. Her professionalism, insight and industry knowledge is unparalleled in the Charlotte market... Read More

Laurens helped my husband and I find and purchase our first home and was incredibly helpful every step of the way. She helped us identify the neighborhoods and properties that best suited our needs, negotiate a wonderful deal on our home and helped educate us about the home buying process along the way. I really appreciate her continued help recommending vendors and... Read More

‐ Amanda Manna

Laurens and Frank Adams were a tremendous help during our listing and sales process. They are very professional, have vast resources and always offered to meet contractors at the home for renovation purposes as we prepared to list the home. I would definitely recommend their friendly and skilled services. The home went under contract after just two weeks!

‐ Connie A.

Laurens was a pleasure to work with during our recent search for a new home. She took the time to get to know me and my husband, our likes and dislikes and how we pictured our ideal home. She was thoughtful and listened to our feedback as she patiently showed us house after house. Working with Laurens was low-pressure and we always felt as though we could be candid with her....

As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
