My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you. See what my clients have said about my real estate services... *Comments: Laurie was enthusiastic and supportive through the whole process. I would highly recommend her! JAC - Stillwater *Comments: My wife and I recently purchased our home with Laurie Stephenson. This purchase was difficult because we were buying a home from 3000 miles away. Laurie worked with us for several months prior to the purchase. Then, when my wife and I arrived to look at homes, she helped us get right down to business. Laurie's knowledge and expertise pertaining to the Saratoga community allowed my wife and I to find a house that was honestly, the exact home we were looking for. Laurie took our situation, our hopes and dreams, and helped us put them into perspective and find the home that was just right for our family. Laurie's dedication to our family was invaluable throughout the entire process and continues on past the closing of our home. My family and I appreciate everything that Laurie has done for us. We got the luck of the draw with Laurie, and couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent and friend. Sincerely, Randal& Shanna Thorpe *Comments: One of the most refreshing qualities about Laurie is she goes to great lengths before even showing a house to make sure her clients are qualified and she understands exactly what there looking for. Her unique ability to understand people and listen is why she's so successful. She puts her client's best interest first and assures they can buy and afford the house for years to come. As a Mortgage Broker responsible to the banks and the clients we have a perfect record and many happy homeowners. Thank you Laurie!!! Jim Teele

2012-11-21 Lost house due to miscommunication at agency:

Hi Tom,   Wow! I'm so sorry that happened to you! That's very disappointing! I notice you are in Texas. I practice in NY. Laws vary from state to state so my best advice to you is consult your attorney

You haven't told me what kind of lease you have with your tenants.  You need to look over your original lease agreement with them and see what it says.  I am not an attorney. So you may want to consult
