If you want integrity and dedication to your wants and needs, we found Laurie and excellent-refreshing example of knowledge and integrity.
What really impressed me most was that she always answered her phone. I did not have to leave a message and wait for her to return. Questions were taken care of immediately. She truly does provide unquestionable service.
Some are good, some are mediocre and the rare ones are great. Laurie Kratz is one of the rare ones - awesome in every aspect of realty. She is determined to find the perfect home for you in the price range given, she crosses her I's and dots her T's, fabulous negotiation skills, wonderful business acumen, and the drive to make things happen for you in a positive way. I have utilized Laurie's talents on a number of projects ranging from a home in Sequim, WA, purchasing land in Florida, guiding me on a summer retreat purchase in New Hampshire; finding me the right temperament realtor in Massachusetts for selling property; and helping locate that perfect home in Florida. As you can see, I value her guidance and advice in all my real estate transactions. If you need or want a fabulous/awesome agent, Laurie Kratz is who you need.
In May we bought a house in Punta Gorda. She went above and beyond any Realtors call of duty. She took us to see homes for 5 days. We thought we knew what we wanted, but we didn't! She had so much patience! Shopping for a home in Florida is very different than New England living. She knew about the ins and out of Florida living and Northern living since she's from PA. After seeing different types of homes and neighborhoods we loved Punta Gorda. She was our voicee and also helped us with decisions that we had no clue about. All of her advice was spot on. We trusted her and she never let us down. Her ethics and loyalty are above and beyond. We don't see many folks anymore with such standards that Laurie has. She even referred us to different types of business that we needed for the future. 5 STAR Realtor!!!!!
Right after the contract was signed she found the perfect home for me in 2 days. I was able to move out of my old home and into my new home on the same day with no problems.
One that was priced right, yet had all the bells and whistles. Through patience and perserverance, we were able to find the perfect home. I have to say that was no small feat.
She doesn't quit until we (the clients) are happy. She sold us our new house and sold our old house and we couldn't have a better person helping us every step of the way. she deserves recognition!!
. Laurie is the consummate professional, and i respect her abilities... An agent needs to have people skills and empathy....Laurie's ability to truly understand the needs of her clients is one of her greatest assets. Her negotiation skills, honed over her career not just in real estate, are excellent and she will find a way to get the job done!and i have seen this first hand. her ability to think outside the box and her creativity is something refreshing in today's world.. I have bought and sold many homes and commercial properties over the years and i know what it take to be a great Agent/Partner in real estate transactions. In a world of cookie cutter agents, Laurie stands above the pack. Without reservation i would recommend Laurie to anyone who needs to buy or sell a property.
FL. from a 1000 miles away can be a daunting task, but one that was made manageable and pleasurable by Laurie Kratz. She worked with my wife and I for over 2 years, helping us find the perfect home, she became a trusted resource for us as we were not in the area. Throughout the process Laurie constantly went above and beyond, often times going to homes and doing a walk through for us. Laurie is dedicated to her clients, and I highly recommend her to all my friends. Over the 2 year process she became not just my realtor, but trusted friend and advisor.
Thank you so much. She did alot for me

We have worked with her for over a year and she found us the perfect house. She is a very effective communicator and supports her clients every step of the way. We feel that we found more than an outstanding realtor, we found a friend.
