As a first time home buyer I knew nothing! Laurie was very patient with me and made the process of finding the perfect home very easy! She answered all of my questions in a timely manner and was very helpful with researching bylaws. I would recommend Laurie to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home! Had an amazing experience! Thanks Laurie!

Brittney H.

 (Buyer)

 

Laurie was amazing to work with, she was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, professional and honest. As it was my first time buying a house, she took the time to explain every step of the process and answer all my questions. Laurie was very quick to respond and made herself readily available. I am so thankful to Laurie for all of her support throughout the process, and would highly recommend her.

We have bought and sold many homes over the years, and have worked with many realtors, but Laurie stands out as #1 far ahead of all the rest. She met with us several months before we were planning to sell, to outline a timing strategy and help us decide what needed to be done to our property to be successful. Not only did she arrange for an excellent staging company to give advice, but she also had her own suggestions and provided some of her personal materials for us to use for staging to keep our costs down. She developed a fabulous listing with great photos and held an open house the first weekend. We sold in 4 days, with Laurie working non-stop to communicate with us and buyers agents. We ended up with an offer over asking, no conditions and our optimal closing date. What more could you want? Thanks so much, Laurie.

Laurie is an outstanding agent! Her communication skills are thorough and timely! She kept every one in the loop with appropriate information and counsel regarding how to play each situation. This comes from years of experience and a great intuitive nature about people. I would recommend Laurie Ogilvie without hesitation.

Laurie was a pleasure to work with. She was very involved from the day I contacted her until the day we sold. She is very responsive to answer any questions you may have; you can expect to hear back from her very quickly. Our initial deal fell through but she used this as an opportunity to gain higher ground with others who were interested in the property. I will be contacting her again if I am looking to buy/sell. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to sell your property.

 (Seller)

 

Laurie is an outstanding agent who will work incredibly hard to efficiently sell your home. I was selling my family home out of province as the executor of my estate, and she went above and beyond to make the whole process as painless as possible. Laurie was very knowledgeable about the local market for our home and we were able to get an excellent price. It is refreshing to meet someone that is so great at their job!

Early this year we decided we wanted to move and asked Laurie to help us sell our house and find a new home for our family. Laurie guided us through the process of preparing our house for the sale. She gave us detailed advice on how to increase the value of our house with the smallest possible investment. She gave us a lot of practical tips and showed us things we would have certainly overlooked. At the same time, we started looking for a new house. We must have visited about 40 houses! Throughout the process, Laurie provided expert advice in a calm and patient way. She got to know our family really well, and was able to save us a lot of time in the process. At all times we felt in control of the decisions, and confident in the knowledge that Laurie had given us all the necessary information and insights. In the end, we sold our old house for the highest price ever paid in our condo complex. We had multiple offers and Laurie expertly negotiated with the buying agents. Laurie found us a dream home which perfectly matched our taste and all our needs and wishes. She negotiated hard and saved us a lot of money by insisting that the HVAC rental was bought out by the sellers. Thank you Laurie for moving us home! We can wholeheartedly recommend Laurie to all our friends and family!

 

Stephen B.

 (Buyer)

 

We had the pleasure of working with Laurie in purchasing and leasing out a home recently. Laurie was always accessible and highly responsive to any questions that we had during this process. She works extremely hard at what she does and is very committed and professional. Once we found the home that we wanted, Laurie was strategic and tactical in how we approached the offer and in closing the deal. Her experience not only helped us edge out a potential multiple offer scenario, but we were also able to secure the home at a lower price than what we were willing to pay based upon Laurie’s experience and recommendations. Once the home was purchased, Laurie was then able to help us lease the property in less than one week. She is very results oriented, grounded and realistic. Laurie is definitely a trusted agent that we would use and recommend time and time again. Thanks for your professionalism and care Laurie! You are awesome, thanks for everything

Mark M.

 (Seller)

What can I say, Laurie was excellent! From the beginning, she was able to accommodate our every needs. We had a unique situation where I was trying to (quickly) sell my parents' condo as they had to move into a home while my Mom was hospitalized. I found Laurie through FiveWalls, and I'm glad I did. She was able to help set me up as Power of Attorney, and almost all signatures were done digitally. She was very helpful with everything, very down to earth and friendly, and most of all, she got our place sold at a reasonable price in no time! A very pain-free and pleasant experience; I have found my permanent realtor, and highly recommend her to anyone out there.Read Less

 (Buyer and Seller)

 

Laurie is a kind, friendly and easy to work with real estate agent. She is highly involved and responsive, and spends quality time with her clients to understand their circumstances and needs. She visited the home multiple times, provided many resources and contacts for home improvement requirements and has an extremely quick turnaround time for all inquiries and actions needed. She also checks in with her clients every other day and stays in touch. In our case, she even took me shopping to help stage my home and spent time helping to make the home presentable. She is available in a blink of an eye and has proven to be a hard working and knowledgeable agent. She spent much time analysing the market and providing sound recommendations, and when it came time to negotiations, she was brilliant. It was a great experience and we got exactly what we wanted. We would wholeheartedly endorse Laurie to anyone and everyone.

Laurie is the ultimate realtor . She provided professional service from the moment of our first meeting. Selling a home can be a stressful time but Laurie handled is with ease and alleviated much of my worry. I had complete confidence in Laurie’s ability to work for me as her client. Thank You Laurie.

 

Julie A.

 (Buyer and Seller)

 

I worked with Laurie to buy my condo. She was so personal and caring and helped me through all of the details that needed to be done. When I decided to sell my condo, I knew who to call ... She sold my condo within two days and negotiated a great deal. I would refer her to anyone that needs a great agent

 

Alex L.

 (Buyer and Seller)

 

Laurie came recommended to us from other fellow co-workers who had positive feedback on relocation with the business. She was hard-working and enthusiastic with us, regardless of the crazy distances we chose for home searches in a short period of time. Few realtors go that distance also to inform their clients of the different communities strengths and weaknesses, especially since we were moving from the west. Laurie did that and more! She also handled the search for our elderly parent relocating here, and resourced many suitable locations for her until we found her condo. Recently we decided to downsize and she took care of getting us the best results, also providing a stager for recommendations in order to ensure the best presented selling home. Currently we are in the search of our next investment and future homes with Laurie. If you want a realtor who listens, cares, understands the market and shares her abundant knowledge of the GTA- hire Laurie Ogilvie.

 

Cameron C.

 (Buyer)

Laurie was amazing to work with! she made buying my first house easy and very smooth as she was very responsive and always made her self available. Laurie worked around my crazy work schedule to allow me to view as many homes as I needed to before I made the big choice. Laurie also makes sure you do not make any impulse decisions which is great, I strongly recommend her for all your buying and selling needs!

 

 

Sherry Y.

 (Buyer)

Excellent agent who is very responsive, professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend using Laurie’s service if you are looking for an agent who is willing to take the time and invest in finding you the perfect home. She goes above and beyond to deliver quality service.

 

Carmen L.

 (Buyer and Seller, 2017)

I have worked with Laurie for many years, buying and selling my properties. Laurie has the knowledge of the real estate market and is always current and up to date with the market changes. She works in my favor for both buying and selling and is very committed to her client. she is a woman of integrity and a very dedicated agent who has her client's best interest at heart. She listen to your needs and do her best to find the right property for you and your family. I would recommend Laurie to anyone who is buying or selling a property

 

Mike and Karen V.

 (Buyer and Seller)

 

My wife and I wanted to take this moment to let you know how we truly appreciated all of your help in finding our dream home and selling our current home. Your knowledge and understanding of the real estate market was truly valued and appreciated. We certainly appreciated your guidance as we navigated through not one, but seven offers on our current home in which you helped us to make the most sensible decision in choosing a buyer for our home. We are looking forward to the date when we will be able to move into our new home so that our growing family may continue to live comfortably for many years to come. We will certainly not hesitate in reccommending you to our friends and family and to anyone that might need the assistance of a trusted advisor and real estate agent.

It is my pleasure to write a review for Laurie. She is warm, caring and really knows her stuff. We did the purchase of my condo while I was away on holidays and she was so patient with me. I love my condo and I have referred her to two other people!!! Thanks for everything Laurie.

 

Jessica L.

 (Buyer and Seller)

 

As a young couple who were upgrading from a condo, Laurie was super helpful in making our decision. She was able to point out things and offer tips for transitioning from condo life. She was able to help us sell our condo quickly as well as help us out until we found our home. She was great to work with!

 

Swamy K.

 (Buyer and Seller)

 

We met Laurie at an open house and when we decided it was time to purchase a home, she was our immediate choice. What we really liked about Laurie was her professionalism, timely communication, and forthright style. We were working under a tight timeline where we had to buy first and sell later in a hot market. When it came time to buy a certain house we liked in the beginning, we ended up with a bidding war situation and she was able to offer advice letting us know when it was wise to walk away. And it was worth it because we ended up buying a house we loved and with better long-term value. She also helped us with staging our existing house and suggesting an asking price that made sense with the competition. And we were successful in selling our house at the right price in a short period of time. Overall, ours was a positive experience and we would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house.

Laurie was very patient and understanding when helping to sell my father's home which had been our family home for over 45 years. There were many challenges and Laurie went out of her way to assist us in getting through all of them by making suggestions and finding the proper individuals to make it all work. She even made specialized suggestions to help us find accommodations for my aging aunt after the home was sold. Laurie was readily accessible, maintained communication and worked hard to prepare, promote and sell the home within a tight timeframe. Thanks for your efforts

 

Jennifer S.

 (Seller)

We turned to Laurie to sell our home in Mississauga and we are glad we did. Laurie guided us through the process of getting the house ready for sale and introduced us to quality professionals to help with staging. Laurie did her research on the market and the current inventory to help us select a price that would meet our goals. We had multiple offers and through Laurie’s skills of managing the process; she was able to get every agent to resubmit their offers with their very best price and conditions. This saved everyone the hassle of sign backs! The whole time, she kept us informed of everything she was doing and why so we never wondered or worried. In the end, our house sold in 48 hours at more than asking. We know that our success was due to her advice prior to sale and her management of multiple offers. We are two very happy clients.

Laurie is the most professional real estate Agent I've met. My husband and I had great experience when we bought our first house seven years ago. It was time to sell and move again, we contacted Laurie again and had another great experience. Laurie had our best interest at heart, very professional in the way she handle both the sale and purchase of our new house, she was always available whenever we had questions or concerns. She negotiated on our behalf and made sure she was working for us. I would definitely recommend Laurie to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling their house.

We put our house up for sale in April, once we met with Laurie we knew immediately she was who we wanted to sell our house and help us find our new home. Laurie took care and the time to help us find our home as if she was looking for a home for herself or her family. She looked out for your needs and wants and made it possible any time we wanted to look at a home. She helped to ease my worry and treated our family just like we were one of her own. We would highly recommend Laurie to our family and friends who are looking to make a move

Just wanted to thank you for all the time and energy you put into helping us find our new family home. You helped make us aware of things that we wouldn't have considered, and made sure it was as stress free an experience as possible. We especially appreciated how available and accessible you were despite our ignorance in the industry. You tirelessly made sure we were educated and guided accordingly. Laurie rocks and I would definitely recommend anyone buying to consider her top notch services, knowledge and experience. Thank you Laurie!

Laurie did a fantastic job of helping me navigate thru the sale of my condo downtown Toronto with a solid understanding of the comparables in the area with her diligent research. With her experience she was able to get multiple buyers to come in on the sale which helped me optimize the prize and set new record sale pricing in the building. Thanks for the great job Laurie!

 

Katherine and Ryan R.

 (Buyer)

We met Laurie at an openhouse and we were immediately impressed with her professionalism , and ability to read our house-hunting style. Only having rented previously , Laurie made visitations a breeze and kept us very informed of new listings and updates to existing houses we liked. Follow through from paperwork and scheduling of appointments after we had signed was prompt and everything went through smoothly with no stress on our side. Her knowledge of our buy area ws impressive and we absolutely valued her opinion. We felt every answer she gave us was honest and reliable. We used her references for other areas of our purchase , and everybody was as helpful and accommodating as Laurie was herself. We truly could not have had a better experience for our first time buying , and would reccommend her services to anyone in need of a real estate agent. Thanks again Laurie

 

Doug W.

 (Buyer and Seller)

 

In 2013 when we decided to sell our home and purchase a new one, there was no doubt that we would have Laurie help us do both. Her patience and knowledge made a very stressful and emotional decision go so much smoother for us. She took the time to see what we were looking for and spent countless hours taking us to homes. She steered us clear of “disasters” and truly knew what we were looking for – even more so that it seemed we did! It was a family affair and Laurie patiently answered all our questions and those of our kids. If anyone is looking for a true professional who really knows the market – work with Laurie! You’ll be so happy you did!

 

 

Claire W.

Laurie did an amazing job both with selling our old home and helping us find a new one. She spent extra time understanding what we were looking for and made sure that we got the best price for our sale and exactly what we needed in a new home. She listened to all our questions and concerns and was very patient and understanding of our needs. I would recommend Laurie to all my family and friends in a heartbeat. She's an amazing person who really does care about her clients. A real treat to work with.

I have the utmost respect for Laurie as a person and as a skilled business woman. She definitely MOVED US HOME , just like her tag line says. Thanks again to Laurie

 

Linda and Mike E.

 (Seller)

 

Choosing Laurie to represent us for the sale of our home is one decision we will never regret. she was terrific and hence we also asked her to handle the purchase of our new home. Her expertise of the market and negotiation skills clearly was the key in finalizing the sale of our home in two days at premium above asking price. Regarding our new home she was attentive to our needs and wants and found us exactly what we were looking for in our new home. During the entire process we never doubted that Laurie looked after our best interest, she was always available , well organized and decisive in terms of laying out our options. She will always be our number one choice.

 

Fred and Alison M.

 (Buyer and Seller)

Words cannot thank Laurie for her exceptional professionalism and attention to detail. Our decision to sell our very loved and cared for home took some time to decide. When our future dream home became available, we gave Laurie almost zero notice, and we were up on MLS within a week. The flurry of activity and interest in our property, lent our house to be sold Firm within 3 days. Selling of home can be a very stressful time, but Laurie guided us, and the whole process went very smoothly and amicably for us and for the buyers. Laurie Ogilive has helped me over the past 9 years, in the purchase of our home and the selling of our home. It is with great pleasure that I would gladly refer Laurie to anyone who wishes to sell or buy. Thanks Laurie

Laurie is a dedicated and knowledgeable realtor. We had the pleasure of working with Laurie in 2009 to buy and sell. Since then she is our go to person for everything real estate. We have recommend her to our family and friends without any hesitation. In fact my brother worked with Laurie last year to buy a condo in Mississauga. Laurie knows the area very well and strives to understand your needs before making any suggestions or recommendations. We like that Laurie is professional, straight forward and means what she says. She doesn't just buy or sell for you she 'moves you home' as she says and stays in contact to make sure all of your needs are met. When we move again, Laurie will most definitely be our realtor of choice

As a single mom looking to buy her first home on her own, Laurie was the perfect agent for me. She was patient and really listened to my needs and wants for my home. Laurie never put any pressure on me and I always felt as though she had my best interests at heart. She didn't waste my time taking to me to see endless homes. If I ever move, I'll be using her for sure!

Ana M.

(Buyer & Seller)

Laurie's professional and ethical reputation proceeds her- I highly Recommend her with the most important transaction of your life. She provided us with realistic comparables when buying to ensure that our decision was not solely based on esthetics and emotion but the home type/style, functionality, location etc. was priced right. Equally to when we were then selling our home she was always on top of the live market trends to keep us informed that we were priced right to sell. This is the 5th house transaction I have had and have not ever worked with a more professional, ethical , knowledgeable and thorough agent. She was always maintained fluid and timely communications during the transaction and throughout the process. Her recommendations for staging, legal representation and home inspections are second to none. Laurie understands your needs and will align with all your expectations by keeping a realistic understanding of the current market. Thank you Laurie for helping us find our happy home
