John & Julie Karas, 2014

We were blown away by Laurie's professionalism and effectiveness in selling our home in West Hartford, which took one day! We already agreed to go with another agent but when Laurie returned our call we could see immediately she knew an extensive level of detail about our market and our street. She convinced us after visiting us that same day that we could about $20K more than the other agent recommended, and sure enough, we got it! She help stage and photograph our house in a very professional way and used the internet to successfully advertise our listing which received thousands of hits. She made the whole process enjoyable and we couldn't be more pleased with the ultimate results! 

LeeLee & Oakley Duryea, 2014

My husband and I were moving to the area and had a short time frame to find a house. We did not have a real estate agent, but we called the broker of a listing we saw online and it happened to be Laurie. That house wasn't actually a good fit for us, but we liked Laurie so much that we decided to work with her on our search. In just a couple of weeks she helped us find the perfect house, and honestly, without her guidance and expertise through a bidding war, we probably would not have ended up getting it. She was great, and we couldn't recommend her more highly.

Lori & Scott Matthews

Working with Laurie to both sell our condo and find our new home was a terrific experience. These were two tasks that seemed both daunting and terrifying but Laurie's expertise, knowledge and professionalism made the whole process pleasant, painless and stress-free. Laurie worked with us to make sure our objectives were met even if it meant scheduling a last-minute showing or taking extra time to search for the perfect home that met our criteria. Her knowledge of the real estate business is superb and we felt confident working with Laurie every step of the way. She was sensational and we will recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch realtor.

Laurie met all of my needs at a very bad time to sell a one bedroom condo. Her ideas were wonderful and we worked great together. She was always in touch with me on a weekly basis making sure everything was working out for me. She actually sold my condo the first time (yes the first time) within 6 weeks and at a great dollar amount. The buyer unfortunately lost their financing and we lost the deal. Then the 2nd time it again sold in about 6 weeks and Laurie worked hard on that sale!!!!! Negotiated and got my condo sold!! I already gave her number to my neighbors who were not happy with their agent so I am hoping that they will use her!

Elizabeth & Steven Wilson, 2014

Laurie is a knowledgeable agent and a wonderful person to spend time with during the house hunt journey. She's a good listener and could even foresee issues and decisions with a positive attitude. I recommend Laurie three times over as an real estate agent as she helped us find and purchase our first home that we love.


Alan & Stacey Reicher, 2014

Laurie was great to work with! Provided helpful suggestions and advice and always available and responsive. Very knowledgeable about the local area. I found her to be very assertive, yet reasonable when helping us negotiate the sale of our home and in buying our new home. Would strongly recommend!



Tricia & Andy Cowell, 2014

Laurie is a wonderful agent. She is always responsive, honest and has great knowledge of West Hartford. I would highly recommend her especially to buyers and sellers in West Hartford.

Camila & Jeremy Tougas, 2014

Laurie was recommended to us by our mortgage company. She was incredibly fast in responding to us, and put together a great list of homes for us to look at. The funny thing is that she already knew what house we were going to buy before we even looked at it. The house was temporarily off the market at the time, but she kept saying to us that she thought it was a perfect fit, and it was! We love our new home, and we never would have known about it if it wasn't for her great knowledge of the area, and the time she took to get to know us and familiarize herself with our wishes. I would recommend her to anyone who's looking to buy or sell a house. She is incredibly professional, efficient, and just a great pleasure to work with!

Ryan Brown, 2013

I really lucked out when I found Laurie. As a first time homebuyer, I was unaware of some of the more subtle things to keep in mind while searching around for a home. Laurie was very patient in the search process and provided excellent insight that helped me make a smart, informed offer that I felt comfortable with.

It was at this point where Laurie’s experience really came into play. Being a first time buyer, I was able to utilize Connecticut’s CHFA program, which ended up being a substantially lengthier process than the typical FHA loan. Laurie played the role of the medium between the seller’s agent and myself perfectly. She was effectively able to reassure the seller’s agent when things on my end were held up. Had this not been the case, the seller’s patience would have certainly grown thin and they would’ve moved onto the next purchaser. I could not be happier in my new place and if the occasion ever arises where I need to sell, I know exactly who I will be calling first!



Lauri & Joe Sylvestro, 2013

We have worked with Laurie in the past and would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Her expertise is outstanding. Our last move was from another state and her organization and knowledge of the market and surrounding towns were so helpful to us in making our decision. Her professionalism, organization, knowledge of the area, and wonderful personality all combine to make the process very enjoyable.

Cheryl Demharter, 2013

From the first moment I met Laurie, her sincerity and consideration for me shone through. During the interview process, Laurie clearly demonstrated her exceptional technological skills—an invaluable asset in today’s real estate market. There was no hesitation on her part to schedule a Realtors’ Open House just a few days later. To beautify the kitchen, she even picked up fresh flowers on her way to my house. Laurie very ably assisted me in sorting through my options when an offer came in the very next day, in addition to helping me work through the building inspection issues that arose subsequently. Her husband even came to help me with some furniture. Through it all, Laurie was always considerate of my views and feelings. It became clear to me that Laurie is a very smart and professional Realtor who truly cares for her clients and possesses a high degree of emotional intelligence. I was very lucky to have Laurie represent me, and I recommend her most highly to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

Maggie Rueda, 2013

Laurie is always very friendly and helpful. She did a great job in setting up appointments for us to look at homes and helping me to narrow down the choices. She was also very understanding and supportive when my situation changed and I decided to rent a home rather than buy, and she helped me negotiate my lease. I will go to Laurie when I am ready to buy a home again.

Amber & Nik Venoutsos, 2013

We worked with Laurie both to sell our condo and to purchase our new house. Our condo was on the market for 10 months with a different realtor with no success. Frustrated, we contacted Laurie. She set us up with a professional home stager and photographer, ran multiple open houses, and followed up with agents for feedback about our unit. Our condo sold within 3 weeks at a price we were very comfortable with. Laurie also helped us negotiate and close on our new home, and we couldn't be happier. Laurie's knowledge of the current market is outstanding. She was always positive, and made the process of selling and buying our home enjoyable! She was fantastic to work with and was always quick to respond to our questions. I can't speak highly enough of her, and would recommend her to anyone who is serious about moving forward with a home sale or purchase.

James Pailthorpe, 2013

From the start Laurie was honest and helpful. As a first time home buyer I had a ton of questions and Laurie was always willing to answer every one of them. Not only is she knowledgeable of all things real estate, she is caring and personable. The home buying process from our initial conversation to the final closing date was supported and made so easy by Laurie's expertise. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She is a great real estate agent and a wonderful person! A true professional!

Karen Wills

From the very first phone call, Laurie took a personal interest in finding out our needs and providing us with the information we needed to purchase our home.  We were relocating from PA to CT and knew very little about the area.  She went above and beyond by providing us with detailed information about the surrounding towns in CT.  In fact, on the day after Christmas, she took us out to see houses.  She is extremely detailed, with excellent follow-up skills and made us feel that she really cared about us.  I would highly recommend Laurie to anyone buying or selling their home.

Hope & Jim Francis

We want to thank you for all your help in selling the house.  You were a pleasure to work with and we appreciate all the expertise, support and patience you provided throughout the process!


Doug Ahlstrin

I truly can't thank you enough, for everything... Not only are you a friend, but you are a professional, and I'm proud you handled the sale of our home.


Bonnie Hindsdale

Our heartfelt thanks for all your help through a very difficult time.  We very much appreciate all the support and hard work you put in, helping us get the house on the market.  Thank you for smoothing out the wrinkles as they came our way.  The quick sale of the house was the bright light in what has been a very painful transition for our family.

Audra Petrucelli, 2012

I am a believer that people come into your life for a reason and Laurie came into mine because of a referral from a close friend. Once I signed onto her webpage I immediately received a phone call and she took the time to get to know me, my circumstances and guided me throughout the process. At a time when i was starting over and didn't even know exactly what I was looking for she was patient, asked questions, tested me on my comfort level, provoked me to think and she listened to my concerns. I miss our "house hunter" days, what I learned about the process and about myself. After several months of searching, attending open houses, countless inquires I found the perfect home thanks to Laurie. Anyone in the market today would be fortunate to have her representing you and working towards your best interests. Thanks Laurie!

Patricia Downing

Laurie Murray is a very helpful and knowledgeable agent to have worked with. She is pleasant, friendly and very up beat personality that is a plus in the real estate world. Working with her on the sale of my property went smooth and i got the price I was happy with. Many thanks to Laurie.

Ramone Reynolds

I found Laurie listed online the weekend I finally decided it was time to find my own home. I didn't have a clue of what was involved; I just knew I was ready. The first time I met Laurie face to face, she explained how the Buyer-Agent relationship worked, and what would be involved in finding my first home. That was in January 2012. From that point onward, to when I purchased my house around the end of 2013, Laurie helped me every step of the way. She made herself available to check out all the listings I found online. When I didn't find any listings of my own, she recommended some for us to look at. She offered her insight and advice: letting me know what she thought and why or why not a home would work for me. She wasn't just trying to get me to buy the first home I saw, she knew this was a big decision for me and she steered me in the right direction. When I finally did find the home I would purchase, she made sure I kept up with all the important dates. She even reminded me to make sure I have the power company switch the power on in my name once it came time to close! Her patience meant a lot to me, especially when it looked like I would never find a home I liked in my price range. I have the highest respect for Laurie and recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is the best at what she does.



Kathy & Steve Cloud

Laurie was one of the best overall realtors we have ever worked with. Her knowledge of the area, expertise and professionalism, and just overall pleasantness made the arduous process of finding a home so much easier. If you want to be completely satisfied in buying or selling a home, you should give Laurie a call.
