Laurel Sweeney's Reviews & Ratings

Laurel Sweeney

    • Laurel Sweeney represented my wife and I on two home sales recently and handled both with extraordinary professionalism and aplomb, putting our interests first. In one deal she cautioned me against letting a buyer rent the house in the months before the closing but I did so anyway. When it got messy she calmly steered the deal in the right direction without a single I told you so. She's the best.

    • Laurel's guidance as our rep was the best experience. In our transaction, she actually worked as the dual agent. And she was incredibly upfront, honest, ethical and informative throughout the entire experience. And once we got to an accepted offer, the experience of closing was incredibly smooth due to Laurel's advice as well as her real estate market connections. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Ulster County region. She has a wide knowledge and a sincere love for the area, which helps inform her dealings in real estate

      - Lewis and Sandrine
    • When you advised us against making a hasty decision to resell our new house -- despite the opportunity for a commission-- I knew we would never find a better broker anywhere. We both could not be happier that we stayed. Thank you for that and for your professionalism in guiding me through the recent, sometimes messy Highland sale. I wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone selling or buying a home.

    • If you want to find the perfect home or sell your unique property in the Hudson Valley, Laurel and her team are the way to go. Nutshell will bring all of their local knowledge, financial acumen and negotiating skills to the table. You never wait for a call back and her team works tirelessly on the details no matter how big or small. Laurel and Nutshell were excellent partners in my sale and I would recommend them to anyone looking in this hot market.

      - Gretchen Nadasky
    • Anat and I would like to thank you and Petra for your guidance and advise as we went through the process of selling our home. Your realistic approach to pricing and timing were appreciated. Also early on it was very helpful in hearing your thoughts on "staging" the house and of course seeing Petra's excellent representation through her photography. In the end all went very smoothly and the transition was painless!

      - Anat and Jamie
    • I have long counted the buying and selling houses as one of lifes more stressful events as something to dread. Because that had been my experience, I was not looking forward to putting our home of 37 years on the market. But that was what we had to do and we turned to Laurel Sweeney of Nutshell Realty in High Falls to help us with this task.For many reasons, we are so glad we did. These include her friendliness, professionalism, and her timely responses to our please call us messages. Then, whether it was for purposes of maintenance or repairs, we so appreciated that Laurel was able to direct us to someone who could not only help, but who charged reasonable rates and did a good job. An additional benefit of signing with Laurel was her assistant, Petra Heist, who was up to date on everything that was going on; who also helped show our place; and who was as friendly and easy to be with as was Laurel.While I cant say that the sale of our home was stress free (it definitely wasnt!) I know that Laurels input, advice, recommendations and, most of all, her supportive hugs when most needed, went a long way to ease the process. So, yes, we were more than pleased with Laurel and the Nutshell family!

      - Judith and Stewart
    • We found Laurel when we began searching for a home in Ulster County. We were first-time buyers and weren't sure at first exactly what we were looking for. Laurel and Petra patiently guided us through the process, even as we expanded our search to other counties and towns. We eventually bought a home in Columbia County, and Laurel was invaluable in identifying potential problems and helping us navigate the path to closing. Laurel is patient, honest and hard-working, and we really enjoyed working with her. We highly recommend Laurel and her team!

      - Melanie and Todd
    • Working with Laurel made buying a new home seem about as seamless as it could be. We had a great experience throughout the entire process and couldn't be more excited for our purchase. We were first time home buyers and had no idea how challenging buying a home could be. By always being available to us for any questions, Laurel helped us feel confident in each of our decisions. She was full of knowledge and had helpful tips throughout. We would absolutely work with her again and would like to thank her for everything she did for us.

      - Juan and Regan
    • We worked with Laurel at Nutshell Realty to buy our first home. Suffice it to say, the process seemed daunting not knowing the "ins-and-outs" of real estate, but Laurel was nothing short of spectacular. Not only was she (and her team) responsive, she was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and forthright from beginning to end. Now that the house is ours, Laurel continues to be an invaluable resource and we look forward to staying in touch for all future real estate needs!

      - Kerry and Alp
    • We contacted Laurel after seeing her as the agent on a house we liked. We met with her to get a general idea of the Ulster County real estate market. From the first phone call on, Laurel answered all of our questions, accommodated last minute requests and was there for us throughout the entire process of purchasing our home. It truly was a pleasure to work with and get to know Laurel. We highly recommend her as a realtor and also consider her as a new friend.

      - Erika and Tim
    • We were looking to purchase a house in New Paltz and a friend referred Laurel and Nutshell Realty very highly. And were lucky they did because Laurel is the best realtor weve had the pleasure of partnering with. She took the time to understand what we were looking for and was patient and diligent in showing us homes. Shes extremely knowledgeable about the market, various neighborhoods, and the buying/selling processes. We also worked closely with Petra Heist who was excellent.
