"I sold an apartment building and wanted to use the funds for a 1031 transaction. Laurie was extremely helpful with all aspects of the transaction. Laurie found us a beautiful condo in Rittenhouse square and was able to rent it out for 2 years as the law requires. Then she sold our Delancey Place home which allowed us to move to the Rittenhouse condo. Laurie made this complex transaction easy and stress free. I would highly recommend Laurie for her warm personality and knowledge of the center city market."

"We could not have been happier or better represented than with Laurie for our recent purchase. We were coming from out of town, and she took the time to make sure we learned about each neighborhood in the area so we could make an educated decision as to where we wanted to be based. She brought us neighborhood to neighborhood, not only showing us homes but familiarizing us with the local flavor, businesses and charms each location had to offer. Laurie really took the time to get to know us and get a sense of what we were looking for and what our priorities were. Laurie quickly honed in on what would make us happy ultimately, and ensured that the home-buying process was efficient and yet one that would help us know when we had found "the one". Laurie's understanding of the Philadelphia market and her years of experience in negotiating and identifying each property's strengths and weaknesses were indispensable. And, as out-of-towners doing a marathon 48-hour buying trip, we were happy to discover that Laurie is engaging, fun and a pleasure to spend time with. We couldn't have been more pleased!"

"Laurie Phillips sold our family home. I have no doubt that it is because of Laurie's expertise and knowledge, especially (for us) of the Greater Philadelphia area luxury market, that we were able to be so very successful. Complete honesty, genuine professionalism, and a stellar work ethic is how I would describe Laurie and her assistant. They answered every call, and returned every message no matter what the hour was. Having Laurie so available, made us feel from start to finish, informed, protected and guided."

"My husband and I recently purchased a beautiful unit in an historic building to use as a pied a terre in Philadelphia. We worked exclusively with Laurie and her wonderful assistant, Madison. Both were extremely committed to helping us find the perfect place. We had a short but nonnegotiable "must have" list and Laurie quickly zeroed in on the kind of property we were looking for. Her knowledge of Philadelphia real estate and of the city itself is incomparable. All in all, we found and closed on our property within one month of beginning our search. It was an enjoyable and easy process. We felt that Laurie truly cared about finding us the right fit for our needs and worked quickly and closely with the seller to expedite the sale.

As a seller, it is easy to have "sellers' remorse" and ask yourself if you could have done better. However at the end of the day we did just fine.

"Laurie Phillips did an outstanding job for me when I sold my center-city, high-rise condominium last year. I had known Laurie for many years and had always been pleased by her cordiality and her knowledge of the local real estate market and trends in the region. Laurie helped me set a realistic but favorable asking price and immediately started actively showing the unit. Literally within days we had buy offers pending. I accepted an early cash-only offer. Settlement followed shortly thereafter at a price reasonably close to my asking price. Throughout this process Laurie was considerate of my schedule and extremely courteous and punctual. Her assistants were also efficient, knowledgeable, mannerly, and a pleasure to have representing me. Laurie took over all the details of marketing my property with a minimum of inconvenience to me. I would proudly recommend Laurie Phillips without reservation."

"This past summer Laurie Phillips worked with my daughter to help her buy her first home in Philadelphia. As her parents, we were excited and concerned that she purchase an appropriate house in a safe neighborhood with excellent resale potential. From past experience we were also concerned that my daughter was well represented by someone who put her interest ahead of a commission. Not only did Laurie find her the perfect home but she excelled in making sure the entire process was focused on my daughters criteria and protecting her interests. From placing the offer to settlement we were constantly impressed with the level of attention and professionalism exhibited by Laurie. It's a daunting experience for a first time home owner and Laurie never pressured my daughter into making a decision. She explained the pros and cons of each house they looked at and once the decision was made to place an offer the logistics and paperwork that followed were executed without any surprises or issues. Based on our experience we would highly recommend Laurie Phillips."

"Laurie Phillips is a wonderful real estate agent. We have used her 4 times in the last 14 years. She rented us a house when we moved to Philadelphia. We bought a house using her. 13 years later she sold the house for us and found us a wonderful rental apartment. Selling a house is not easy. Laurie made it as painless as possible. Before we put the house on the market, my husband and I had 2 meetings to discuss pricing and comparable properties in the neighborhood. Laurie suggested exactly when she wanted the house to go on the market. \She also suggested a few changes be made to make the house appeal to more buyers - in our case we repainted the blue walls of the master bedroom to off-white and purchased a new bedcover. She or an associate was at every showing. They came 1/2 an hour before each and went through the house to make sure it looked its best for the potential buyers. I am embarrassed to say on more than one occasion they had to make my bed. I trust her and her associates completely. This was important because we travel often and the house was shown while we were out of town. There was a fair amount of back and forth with the eventual buyers during the negotiation. Laurie kept us informed every step of the way. I think her honesty and knowledge of the local market helped with the successful outcome of the negotiations. When the deal was just about done, my husband broke his arm skiing and had to have emergency surgery. Laurie completed the deal for us, keeping the buyer informed as to why we were missing deadlines and keeping the deal moving forward to closing. My husband and I highly recommend her. "
