Laura you are so knowledgeable. I feel like the people we have worked with before are capable and lovely but you have a much better knowledge base and holy cow do you do the leg work. Use me as a reference any time. I have told everyone how amazing you have been."Chris & Mike S., Portland
Laura kicked ass, and negotiated a sweet deal getting repairs done and dropping the price from my initial offer. She's the Bomb! So blessed, life is good.Anne B., Portland
My husband and I purchased a home with the help of Laura. I was a seasoned home buyer, but this was his first home purchase, so we came to the process from very different experiences. Laura was patient, helpful, and respectful of both of our experiences and made the process as easy as a home purchase can be. She was readily available to answer questions and help us through the process. We both highly recommend Laura and will enlist her assistance should we need to buy or sell a home again in the future.Gayl Anglin and Vern Jeffery
Laura was marvelous. She communicated frequently, which helped to keep things on track, and identified properties in Portland that would fulfill what I wanted. Among the choices was a condo, which was just a few minutes away from my daughter's Portland home.
A challenge was that I would have to sell my Maryland property before I would be able to purchase the condo. This required negotiations that Laura orchestrated wonderfully. I am now the proud owner of a condominium on Munjoy Hill. Thanks, Laura!
I can only wonder if this would have been possible without the excellent efforts of Laura Burden. I truly think, probably not. Laura was there every step of the way; from the sale of my Maryland property to the purchase of my Portland property. Not only is Laura Burden a highly competent Realtor, she is a wonderful person to work with. I highly recommend her, with no reservations whatsoever.J.
