On a 10-point scale -- Laurie LaDow is an eleven.I have known Laurie personally for several years. I have also followed her sales record, because we knew we would eventually sell my mother-in-law's home. Laurie had the right combo for us and Cressy & Everett has a great reputation as well.Going in, we had a sense of the property value. The home is a villa/combo and there are plenty of comps. Our interest was getting the best price we could -- without being on the market very long, ideally less than 6 weeks.We went to contract about 48 hours after we put the house on the market -- and had competing bids. Laurie did a marvelous job negotiating and we made substantially more than we expected, in less time than we expected. You CANNOT beat that!Everything about our sale was perfect. I was particularly impressed with Laurie's research, pricing strategy, marketing, and negotiating skills. Just as important was how well Laurie worked with our family and how well she communicated with my mother-in-law as we prepared the home for sale. We are very happy customers. Our entire family will use Laurie for all of our real estate transactions and we will enthusiastically recommend her to everyone!
I was very pleased with all the hard work Laurie LaDow did for the sale of my house. (I didn't have a chance to work directly with Sarah Dalton). The sale of a historic house like mine is a difficult enterprise and needs a lot of understanding and patience. Laurie has these and many other positive characteristics.
Sarah was very considerate of our goals and objectives in selling our home. She always returned phone calls or emails or texts. when we had questions or concerns.
Laurie LaDow and Sarah Dalton are truly the best of the best. I've worked with them several times on home purchases and sales and each time they have provided best in class service and communication. I would recommend them to anyone looking for knowledgeable, professional assistance with their real estate needs.
Sarah Dalton is an outstanding realtor. I was beyond satisfied in selling my house. The experience I had is highly recommended for anyone selling their house!Sarah is very personable and was a an awesome person to work with!! I truly got the best!
Laurie came prepared at our first meeting and clearly understood the market and our needs. Even though I live out of state, I felt like she kept me in the loop through the entire sales process. She responded in a timely manner to each inquiry I made to her either over the phone or through text/email.
I recommend Laurie and Sarah for all of your home buying details. They are knowledgeable, pay attention to detail and will stand by you on any issues that may arise. My wife and I just love them for finding us the perfect home!!
Sarah was excellent. She was trustworthy, timely, consistent, kind, knowledgeable, always available, patient, and honest. She was exactly what we needed to get a contract negotiated for the sale and purchase of our homes. Thank you, Sarah! We will return and recommend you.
Laurie LaDow & Sarah Dalton were great to work with. They were both fast & reliable anytime we contacted them. They helped us purchase our dream family home. We cant thank them enough!
The best decision I made when we decided to buy a house near South Bend was to hire Cressy & Everett. Laurie LaDow, my Realtor was AMAZING, take-charge, get-things-done kind of person and helped me buy the perfect house for my son who will be attending Notre Dame in the Fall. If you live thousands of miles away and looking to buy near South Bend, don't hesitate: call Laurie NOW. She's gone above and beyond for us.
I could not be more thrilled with our choice to use Laurie as our real estate agent. As a first time home buyer who was relatively new to the South Bend area, my husband and I had a lot of questions and concerns throughout the buying process. Laurie responded almost immediately to everything we asked and went above and beyond to ease our nerves. She even scheduled a second final walk through the morning of our closing to make sure we were satisfied with everything. I would recommend Laurie and will definitely utilize her services in the future if needed!
Can't recommend them enough. Competence is key and they are super competent that you can trust everything will get done on time and efficiently.
Laurie is a true real estate pro, and she knocked it out of the park for us. She really knows her stuff, and she could not have been more accurate with our listing price. Laurie is worth every penny of her commission!
Sarah was wonderful. As a first time homebuyer she was very honest and thorough, telling me factors I should look for that I hadn’t even realized. She knew her companies well, and the personalities of the people who worked at each. She was able to match me with people who were very knowledgeable and whose personalities I enjoyed working with.
Laurie and Sarah are amazing. We took a two-week honeymoon to Europe in the middle of buying our new house, and a one-week vacation out of state when our house was being listed and sold. Laurie was on vacation for a while as well. We NEVER had any problems with communication - the whole process actually felt EASY!Aside from rocking at the technical side of things, Laurie and Sarah consistently provided genuinely useful insights on individual homes, neighborhoods, strategies, etc, that really reflected their many years of experience. We're so grateful for all their help, patience, and wisdom in what would otherwise be a pretty overwhelming endeavor.
I couldn't be more satisfied on the recommendation of having Laurie LaDow & Sarah Dalton with assisting me on purchasing my first home. Very impressed with the knowledge on all my concerns and always attentive to my needs on the whole process.
Laurie was awesome. She was quick to respond, not pushy in trying to sell me a house, and she even advocated to the seller for me to get a great price on my home!
Laurie and her team were wonderfully supportive throughout the entire buying and selling process. They understood my needs, helped me to negotiate complexities, and maintained the utmost integrity throughout the difficult process. I felt supported and understood throughout the process, even when news wasn't good, and I always felt like I had an advocate. I would (and have!) recommend these agents, without any reservation, and would be delighted to work with them in the future. A+
Only worked with Sarah once. But she was very nice and helpful. I love Laurie. She was awesome. Understood just what I was looking for, probably before I knew. Was good at explaining things. This is my first house. Told me what area's were good, what was over priced. Just has a really great time with her. Will definitely work with her again.
Great job Laurie!
We really enjoyed working with you both. The team effort was great. Considering I/we both knew you previously I think that helped. Laurie it helped that you sold me my first condo over at Notre Dame. You are both very personable and that's a huge plus. You make the experience great. Thank you for all your help!!!! I will recommend you to others!! Now we just have to get our house sold. haha
Sarah was great with us we were first time home buyers and she communicated and explained everything to us. She was on time and quick to respond with any questions or concerns that we had. We appreciated everything she did for us and taking so much time to help us finialize our closing.
Laurie is a phenomenal real estate agent! Totally knowledgeable in all aspects of her profession.
Sarah Dalton did an incredible job coordinating and executing on each step in the process and made it very easy for our family. We would not have been able to make it happen without her involvement. Thank you, Sarah!
Laurie LaDow and Sarah Dalton are a great team. We are not only first time home buyers, but we are new to the area, and they walked us through the entire process. We felt like we were in good hands! We would highly recommend Laurie and Sarah to anyone looking for a home in the area.
Laurie always does a wonderful job! We will use her services again!
I could not be happier with our experience with Laurie and her team. We were renting our house and live halfway across the country, but Laurie helped us take care of everything from recommending the right improvements, to coordinating with the contractor, we got the house in great shape with ease from long distance. And we rapidly went from listing to closing in a far shorter time than I thought possible. We bought and sold our home with Laurie, and it was as stress free and enjoyable of an experience as buying and selling a house can be. Thank you!
I will definitely use Laurie and all the people that helped her out when I am ready to sell and buy again. I will certainly recommend her to out of towners to really acclimate them in a short time to South Bend and the surroundings. Not being in the same state while closing on the house would've been worrisome but I had full faith in Laurie and Sarah to guide the process so it went without any snags. I could sleep soundly at night during this whole process even though I was 1500 miles away!
I have worked with Laurie LaDow (and now Sarah Dalton) for four real estate transactions so far and will continue to do so! They earn their clients' trust and follow through with the details. I especially appreciate Laurie's honesty and frankness and her focus on the long-term happiness of clients vs. the short-term goal of closing transactions. She succeeds in the latter because she prioritizes the former.
Laurie is outstanding - it always feels like we are her only client at the time, and her speed in getting things done always impresses me!
Janessa was a pleasure to work with and I will recommend her to friends looking to buy or sell a house.Again, Janessa was all that I could have hoped for in a realtor.Again, Janessa was great!
My testimonial for Janessa Dewitt is that she took us through the buying process, detailed explanation of the process, informed us of what to expect and kept us informed via e-mail, text and phone calls through the entire buying process. Janessa is currently giving the same excellent service as we go through the selling process of our previous (old) home. WillHighly recommend Janessa to others buying or selling their house's.
Laurie & Sarah are true professionals. They kept us well informed throughout the sales process. They were easy to do business with & we would recommend them to others looking at selling or buying property.
We had a somewhat difficult process in selling our home that we had lived in for twenty-five years. Laurie was there every step of the way and understood the emotional issues we were going through. Always responsive and professional. Would highly reccomend.
Laurie was extremely attentive to our likes. She went out of her way several times to make my house buying positive. This is my first home purchase and she made me feel comfortableShe treated me like she knew me for years. I never felt like a stranger to her.Things went quick and easy. Seemed like too quick but Laure was doing what she is very good at.Hope to not buy soon, but if myself or a friend did, it would be thru Laurie Ladow
Laurie has provided competent, professional, timely and accurate service. She is extremely well informed, and and has pertinent info immediately. She has been paramount in my success as a real estate investor, in Indiana and Michigan transactions. She has proven efficient not only as a Purchasers agent but also as a sellers agent. She has earned my trust.
Laurie and Sarah are amazing! Hugely grateful and I refer people to them all the time.
This is the second time using Laurie and both times were great. We bought our house and sold the same house using Laurie and her team. Laurie really does a great job listening and providing key feedback when buying and selling a home. She really knows the area which is key. I like that Laurie is aggressive in terms of knowing the market and doing what is best for her clients. I would highly recommend Laurie and her team to others in the area.
We highly recommend Laurie LaDow, she is a fantastic agent!
Laurie was great to work with. She was on top of things for the entire process. Very easy to communicate with and always available.
The feedback on preparing the house for selling was very crucial. Very open dialogue on the status of getting things ready and hit the target date for listing the house on the market. Very professional staff and a pleasure to work with. This is my 3rd time working with Laurie and Sarah.
Outstanding real estate agents; they are responsive, resourceful and determined to help us find our perfect home. Moving across the country on a tight time schedule with unique house requirements is never an easy task. With Laurie LaDow & Sarah Dalton the entire process was much easier. If you need an agent who genuinely listens and tries their best to find you a home, please reach out to Laurie & Sarah.
Both Laurie and Sarah were highly professional and excellent realtors. would highly recommend them to anyone. Our overall experience was excellent and we greatly appreciate your expertise and assistance and selling the house.
Sarah Dalton is the single best realtor in St. Joseph County. Having used her services three times in five years, I can confidently say that I wouldn’t ever use any other realtor or real estate team. Thank you so much for all you’ve done to help me.
Laurie LaDow is the most knowledgeable and professional realtor I have ever worked with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home or as a buyer.
Laurie was the extreme professional. She listened to our needs and helped flush out homes that wouldn’t be a good fit for us. She has a very good understanding of a home and it’s worth, no matter the listing price. She was very responsive during critical points in the process. We appreciate seeing her dedication to the community while managing her client’s needs. We have and will continue to recommend her to our friends who inquire about our home purchase.
Sarah Dalton is an absolute professional. She is amazing to work with. Having used her for two home purchases, I can say with certainty that I will never use another realtor. I have referred her to my family and they are also completely satisfied with her work. I am so lucky I found Sarah Dalton!
I am highly satisfied with the help of Laurie and Sarah they made my first time home buying experience so smooth and were very friendly, patient and met all my needs. Both Laurie and Sarah are great at what they do and make sure you feel comfortable through the whole process. I will definitely recommend them to family and friends! Thank you for all of your help, you ladies are wonderful!
Laurie LaDow & Sarah Dalton worked to find us our new home. We worked primarily with Sarah Dalton who showed such patience and kindness as we searched for a new home while living in another state. Sarah found possible homes, searched within a specific school district, and shared valuable local information with us. Sarah was so flexible with her schedule to meet with us when we were able to come. She found is s beautiful home that we love. Sarah isn't just our agent, we consider her our friend.
