        Our experience with Laurie was amazing! She was very professional and personable. She was very patient showing us several houses with no pressure at all.

        • Laurie helped my husband and I sell our home and buy a new one 2 years ago. We put an offer on a new construction home and she had our home listed the next day. We had a showing the first and second day. An offer came in after the second showing (before the sign even went up in the yard) and ultimately the sale went through and we got the new construction home we put our offer on. We used the lender Laurie recommended and he was great. Her knowledge of the business helped with the pursuance of the overall transactions

          - Heidi & Stace K
        • Laurie is a tremendous agent and person. She is extremely knowledgeable and well connected in the community, and not afraid to seek out any and all information needed. In addition, Laurie is always ready to go, answering her phone or emails to schedule showings, answer questions, etc. .She is such a wonderful person, really easy to talk to about dreams, fears, concerns, hopes...If I didn't love my house so much (the one she helped us buy), I would go house hunting with her all the time!

        • Steve and I asked Laurie to help us look for a piece of property we could eventually build on. In her infinite wisdom, she brought us to a place in Mulino. This was October 2012. Steve's jaw dropped as he looked at the barn and my jaw dropped as I looked at the house. We were standing at the kitchen counter and Laurie says to me "this is your home". She was absolutely right but it didn't come easy. We made an offer, they countered, we countered back and then chickened out. After playing with the numbers we offered them their counter but they had decided not to sell. Laurie made it very clear to their Realtor, that we wanted this home and once they were ready to call her. She followed up multiple times, making sure they didn't forget us. Toward the end of January they called and accepted our offer. Our home was immediately put on the market. Laurie said I should paint the green walls neutral, which I didn't do, and the house didn't sell. We painted those walls and in a week received a full price offer. (always listen to your Realtor's recommendations) What defines an exceptional Realtor is how they react and respond when things go sideways. Our buyer's Realtor and lender were a nightmare, starting with changing the closing date SIX times. They just couldn't get their act together. I'm not sure I've ever seen so many paperwork changes. Laurie kept me calm when I was afraid we were going to lose the house we were buying, and getting so frustrated at the ineptness of the buyer's lender, that I wanted to scream. We were trying to close this before Laurie had major surgery. Laurie tried to explain this to them, and they didn't care. So.....Laurie had her surgery, all 14 hours of it on a Friday. On Monday, the lender wants to close on Wednesday. This time she says it's "for sure." She needs the paperwork to change the date..again. Laurie gets her the paperwork, FROM HER HOSPITAL BED! Did we close Wednesday? No we did not. Didn't close Thursday either and the loan on our rate lock expired on Friday. More paperwork demanded of Laurie, that she immediately turned around, FROM HER HOSPITAL BED!! We finally closed at 5:30pm on Friday, April 17th. I know of no one else that would have done what Laurie did to get this deal to go through. Not only is she unbelievably wonderful, but her knowledge of the business is excellent. She is patient and understanding when you're ready to have a meltdown. We are so grateful and happy, she found and put us in our new home.

        • The first time buying a house was pretty overwhelming until I met Laurie. She was friendly, positive and with lots of information. She put in touch with a loan officer so I could get pre-approved and ready to go. She showed me lots of homes and kept me up to date with any changes and made sure I knew about all the new ads in my range. She answered all of my email very quickly and everything went very smoothly. I would recommend Laurie to anyone on market to bur or sell.

          - Ken L
        • Laurie helped my husband and I find our first home. We could not be happier with her expertise and knowledge of the market. As first time home buyers we had no experience and had several questions. Laurie is quick to respond and is very clear and detailed with her answers. Laurie is also great to be around. Her warm and bubbly personality is contagious. Buying a home is stressful, and Laurie has way to make you feel comfortable about your decision and the home buying process. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is an amazing Realtor

        • Summary of their experienceLaurie has been our "go-to" for any questions, concerns, etc. for all of our home buying experiences. Even in the in between she is quick to show us an intriguing listing or answer an off-beat question. To say we trust Laurie is an understatement. She is real, honest, extremely responsive and hardworking. Even in difficult situations she has helped lead us down the right path. I have and will continue to both use her and recommend her to others.

          - Julie M
        • Summary of their experienceLaurie was/is FANTASTIC. She made first time home buying a breeze. We expected our short sale to take up to six months if not longer. With her help we were able to close on our house within three. Never was she pushy nor was she more interested in making a sale. She genuinely cared about what we were looking for in a house and what our expectations were.

          - Mikki H
        • My Husband and I have bought and sold 7 properties with Laurie as our agent. We have moved a few times, and purchased rental homes, and a "flip" house. We have known Laurie for 20 years. Laurie is honest, friendly and knows her stuff!! The fact that she puts her heart and soul into her work, really shows. We are thankful for all she has helped us with over the years.

          - Mike & Edie P
        • Laurie Evans Michel was so easy, stress free and professional to work with when my husband and I bought our first home 18 years ago that we used her again. I can not say enough of how much we trust and appreciate everything she helped us through selling and buying our homes. From giving us the best tips to sale our home to directing us to the best home and neighborhood for us and our girls. Laurie went above and beyond for us each time. Whenever we hear someone buying or selling we ALWAYS recommend her. We are proud to say that we have multiple friends and family have also used her and are also very happy customers.

          - Polly D
        • Laurie has been a personal friend for years. She knew my dream to build a home and found me the perfect lot. Her knowledge of negotiations helped us purchase the lot with several other offers on the table. The next few years both of our sons bought homes with her as their realtor. She is always ready and willing to show a house and we looked at many, looking for the right house at the right price for each son who definitely had different tastes. Laurie just loves houses and she loves people and that makes her the perfect realtor. She was meant to sell houses and She often says that. I have recommended her to many others who have also found her to be a realtor with integrity and enthusiasm

          - Shannon M
        • I chose Laurie due to her experience and willingness to be flexible. She made a 2 hour drive so we could look at homes on the Oregon coast. When I mentioned that I loved the homes dcor of the 2nd house we saw, she advised that we could put in an offer including the furnishings. We would never have thought of that. The best thing was that the sellers accepted the offer. When the inspection was done and uncovered a variety of repair issues, Laurie advised that we could make a lower offer to offset for the repairs; which was accepted by the way. (great negotiating skills.) Laurie made the entire process easy and fair. I can't thank her enough.

          - Nancy W
        • What a delightful person to work with. Laurie has helped us sell two homes and buy three homes. Laurie knew what we were looking for and was able to quickly set up appointments as soon as houses appeared on the market. She was happy to take us to as many houses as we wanted to look at even taking us back a second time. Laurie knows how important this investment is so she gives you plenty of time. She keeps your best interest in mind, she is honest not pushy. We have recommended her to family and friends and they have been just as happy as we are.

          - Sharon & Ron
        • Summary of their experienceLaurie is great! Every time I've wanted to see a house she's been available to show it to me . . . even after she had foot surgery and was on crutches! Any time a new listing was posted, and it was in my price range, Laurie would send me the information right away. She's very responsive and personable. I'd highly recommend her! Keep up the good work Laure!

          - Wendy
        • I have had the best experiences with Laurie! She made searching for a home so much fun- we both love to see houses and as soon as any new homes fitting our criteria popped up, she was setting up viewings and even taking us back to one property more than once. Laurie has so much energy, a fabulous sense of humor and is helpful and honest. I appreciated her expertise and knowledge of the entire process- from listings to inspections and financing...its so much to try to comprehend but she was patient and happy to break it down for us. I will use Laurie without hesitation in any future home buying or selling and highly recommend her to family and friends.

        • Laurie was such a pleasure to work with in buying our first home! Regardless of the fact that we really had no idea what area of town we were looking to buy in, topped with the rush of wanting to find something quickly during the holidays, Laurie went out of her way (literally!) to show us homes in every area that felt like a possible match for our family and our budget. She was encouraging and offered support and bits of advice only when solicited by us. She was very open and knowledgeable on the process, answering our many questions and making homebuying much more fun and easy than we had dreamed of. Laurie was very quick to respond to our many emails and phone calls, always patient and happy to help. Laurie's years of experience were so helpful and apparent when she called upon previous relationships with her fellow realtors and others in the industry. We could not have been more happy with the experience and look forward to someday looking to her when we are ready to purchase again! So glad that we had a great referral that led us her way to begin with!

        • Laurie is a top notch realtor. She knows the area and market. I found my buying experience went faster than I had expected. She took care of all the loose ends and brought the deal together. I would use her again in a heartbeat.

          - Carol M
        • We were first time home buyers and Laurie really made the process seamless and easy. She was knowledgeable, flexible and honest. She is truly a great agent, and anyone who uses her will see that immediately!!

          - Kelsey S
        • We have used Laurie Mischel on 3 occasions and she has come through for us each and every time. First time she helped us sell was to market one of our parent's homes, that took one day. Second time she helped us sell our home, at the start of the recession in 2008, that took all of 3 days to get a full price offer and sale; then she represented us in the purchase of our new home that we bought for $30,000 below the asking price.Laurie is knowledgeable about real estate and has a clear understanding of what it takes to both buy and sell in all kinds of market conditions. On top of all that knowledge, she is simply a wonderful person to be around and to work with - she will not disappoint and my wife and I both would highly recommend her.

        • I had just turned 40 and was buying a house for the first time. I was also qualifying for the first time home buyers program. Laurie was fantastic! I would email her listings that I wanted to look at and she would print them out and off we would go. Very patient with me and very knowledgeable about what I was looking for. In the end, she found me a great townhouse, called for the home inspection and within a few weeks I was a new home owner. I have known Laurie for years and would recommend her to anyone. She makes the home buying process a fun experience instead of a stressful one.

        • Laurie helped us find our first home, and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else. She has an exuberance about her, and she knows what she is doing. We will definitely use Laurie again for the purchase of our next home.

          - Tara A
        • She is a very patient, helpful, and professional. She was always ready to answer any questions and always went the extra mile in finding out answers about properties, filing out paperwork, and quite simply was there every step of the journey to home ownership. If you want the best in a real estate agent, then Laurie Mischel is the one you want.
