No REALTOR does more to get your home ready for market in the Nashville area! Direct communication, Experience and Professionalism!
About Me and the Team
Experience the Dickenson Difference - no REALTOR(R) does more to prepare your home for market and sell it for top dollar. You will appreciate our services! The Dickenson Group helps individuals buy and sell real estate primarily in the Williamson County area. We also provide services in the Nashville/Davidson County area, and Wilson County. We work primarily with single family homes. Our business is focused on realtionship and customer service. We want you to be so happy that you have to recommend us to your friends and family!
At the Dickenson Group, we work to find a buyer for your home! Not all REALTORS run an active and aggressive marketing campaign for your property. We also work with you to sell your home in the timeframe that fits your needs. NO REALTOR DOES MORE TO PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR MARKET! By evaluating the most up-to-date market information from our multiple listing service, we help you price your home competitively and for your best advantage. We use our knowledge of the marketplace to help you find the best ways to fix up your home to sell for more.
Our buyers connect with us through www.TheDickensonGroup.com. Buyers love to work with us because we put our best efforts toward helping you find the right home for you. "I get caught up in the thrill of the hunt! I use the MLS, call other realtors and look for FSBOs if it will produce the home you want." says Laura Dickenson. Again, we use the most up-to-date market information to help you with your price negotiations. And we handle the paperwork. If you've ever purchased a home before, you know there are a lot of details that go into the "contract to closing" phase of the transaction. Our team is there for you!
One of our most important distinctions - especially for the future - is our use of technology. Says Laura, "I have been able to use my knowledge of computer services and the internet to provide my sellers with an advantage when selling and buying real estate. The internet is increasingly a more powerful force in selling and buying real estate. I am there! We use the internet extensively and we try to make the whole process easier by using technology."
Our business focus is on residential real estate - buying, selling, investing. You get the advantage of all our efforts working to solve your problem. Does your realtor focus strictly on you?
The Dickenson Group has a few areas of expertise. We are especially well-suited to working with out-of-town clients that need communications via, e-mail, fax and internet. Our goal for out-of-town clients is to help get everyone settled into "life in the new place", not just the house.
We work well with families with children, since we have active children ourselves. We are "in the thick of things". Your needs and wants are probably where our own personal needs and wants are SO, we'll have a bunch in common!
We work with clients buying any price range of home. As a first time buyer, you will appreciate our focus on educating and informing our clients. All buyers appreciate our experience!
"I absolutely love her"
Laura is just the best. I absolutely love her. Our house would still be on the market if Laura hadn't stepped in and known what she was doing. She's a blast and I had a ball working with her.
Kathleen W., Franklin, TN
"She really went the extra mile helping us"
"We were relocating here from out-of-town and a friend recommended Laura to us. She really went the extra mile helping us find just the right home in Franklin. She previewed numerous homes for us and then would call me directly from the ones that met our specifications, and give me a "walking tour" over the phone! I had never worked with an agent that would take that kind of time to help us. Laura notified us one evening of a home that had just come on the market. We ended up winning the home in a multiple offer situation!"
Tom and Monica, Franklin, TN
"We were happy with the entire process"
I picked Laura as my REALTOR after interviewing 3 agents because her presentation was the most complete and professional. I was selling an updated, older home with a great lot . Since it was empty, she staged the home with a few accent pieces to help it show better. Laura helped us evaluate all the feedback from the REALTORs who showed the home.
You and your staff made the entire process very smooth . You took care of all the interactions between the buyers and us . I have no idea what they even look like ! Since my husband wasn't able to come to the closing due to health issues, we were glad you knew what paperwork we needed for a Power of Attorney. We were happy with the entire process!"
Deborah and Ed, Nashville, TN
Professional, Internet-savvy and Friendly
My wife and I had called an agent recommended to us by a friend to help find a home in Brentwood. I had left 3 messages and never heard back from them. I decided to look on the internet for another agent. After searching a dozen sites, I had decided to call Laura Dickenson. Her site was very professional and by her picture, I thought she looked friendly. I called her and left a message. She returned my call within the hour. I told her what we were looking for and that we would be up in the area for a weekend and she made arrangements to spend the weekend with us. Laura met us at the time we agreed and we set out on our home buying expedition. We looked at numerous houses but hadn't found the one we wanted. On the second day of looking, Laura had gotten wind of a house not yet on the market but had called the owner and convinced her to let us see it. We fell in love with it. She found our dream home and helped us though the entire process. I didn't know buying a home could be so easy. Not only did we find our dream home, we found a friend in the process. We just clicked from the first introduction. We spent the entire weekend looking, laughing and actually having a great time. I was impressed by her professionalism as well as her knowledge of the process and industry. We left Nashville two very happy people.
After 9 months of trying to sell our home in Florida, with no luck, we came to the realization that we would have to sell our dream home in Brentwood. Of course, our first thought was of Laura Dickenson. She was such a joy to work with on the buying process that the selling had to be the same.
Laura had our listing for a week and we had an offer. Although we went back and forth a bit with the prospective buyers, Laura was in our corner the entire time. She truly made it easy.
We hope to keep in touch with her and will recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Nashville area. As said before, not only did we find a easy to work with, professional agent, we found a friend.
