We've bought and sold more than a few homes over the years, and it's easy to say that Laura Carney is the best agent we've had. As an Eastern Shore native, she knows every inch of St. Michaels, Easton, Oxford, and the surrounding counties. That was critical for us, since we were new to the area and didn't know quite what we wanted. Among the many things we appreciated about Laura was her patience with us. We actually took ~18 months to find the right home, buy it, and move in - and not once did we feel like she was rushing us, or getting impatient with our lo-o-o-ng timeline. Not at all. But what really impressed us was her attention to detail - on every little thing - and her active defense of *our* interests as a buyer. There were several times where little surprises, or issues, or "curve balls" got thrown our way, and Laura was "on it" immediately! The phrase "Going above and Beyond" describes what she did for us at least 5 different times in the final stretch toward settlement. She even addressed a key issue *after* settlement! We know she's got lots of clients, but she always made us feel like we were the only ones. Finally, she was such a joy to work with personally. So calm, so friendly, so personable. We've already recommended her to several friends, and to several strangers. We'll definitely go back to her when it's time to sell.
If you're selling a home on the eastern shore of Maryland and want the highest caliber real estate professional involved, you need to call Laura. We have sold many homes over the years and this time around, we had a complicated family home with several issues to resolve - some we knew about and others were a surprise. It was a huge relief watching Laura handle everything that came up, quickly and with a smile. This was our first experience with Laura and after dealing with other sadly mediocre realtors, she was a breath of fresh air. She went beyond the call of duty, and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. We would give her ten stars if that was possible. She has lived in the area for most of her life and knows the market well; all of the trades involved with our property also had excellent things to say about Laura, and her family. So whether you are buying or selling a home, if you only want the very best, call Laura Carney. She is incredible!
There are two words that definitely describe Laura Carney when it comes to being your ally in a real estate transaction: Consummate Professional. She guided us through the sale of one home simultaneous with the purchase of a new one, and her knowledge and approach helped us through what could have been a far more emotional and tricky process. In point of fact, her deep knowledge of the market was the reason we were able to find the next perfect home, and sell our house within a week of listing it! Her attentiveness to the details is extraordinary, handling matters with a brisk efficiency that gave us so much confidence the transaction would close without a hitch. Which it did! After buying and selling a number of homes over the years, we would say this was the best experience of them all, thanks to Laura.
I could not have been more satisfied with Laura Carney as my listing agent. She is professional and knowledgeable about the market. She priced my home correctly, prepared it aesthetically to sell, and produced excellent marketing material. Laura was present at every showing, making sure my home was at its "best" for each showing. She followed up consistently with potential buyer's agents, always soliciting feedback-keeping me abreast of market updates and helpful information. The ultimate value of Laura was the tenacity and common sense she exhibited in "closing the deal". She managed the emotions that come to the fore when selling your home. I left that house and property knowing I received the best market price and my buyers got a fair deal.
As a lifelong resident of the Eastern Shore, Laura Carney's knowledge of the area and local market trends is exceptional. We loved working with Laura! Her level of professionalism and warm personality put us instantly at ease. Whenever we called, texted, or emailed, Laura was always quick with her response and her patience and understanding of matching our vision with available properties was spot on. She guided us through the whole process--from touring to ultimately winning the multiple bid situation we found ourselves in. I have already recommended Laura to numerous friends and family, and wouldn't hesitate to use her the next time we buy a home.
We just found and purchased a beautiful new home on the Eastern Shore. Laura's expertise is unmatched, as she grew up in the area and seems to know everyone! Unflaggingly good humored, incisive and experienced in her craft, she understood our style and had great instincts about what we might like. She was patient as we learned the market and explored the area until we zeroed in and found just the right property. At that point, she facilitated successful negotiations and followed through every step of the way with contacts and recommendations - everything working out well so far! Highly recommended.
Laura is the best. We loved working with her - she was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and professional. And no question that she'd go to bat for you. Although she was very busy, she made us feel like we were her only clients. There was no question that Laura couldn't answer and she provided us with many names and references to help us get settled. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and highly recommend Laura!
