Testimonials for Laura Higginbotham
You were fantastic to work with during a time in our lives when we were incredibly stressed. Selling our home, moving and having a new baby almost did me in. But, I felt like I could really talk to you about the progress of selling our home and bounce ideas off of you. You made the process easy. Not only that, but you were a friend throughout it all.
Second, in finding our new home without us even around was a phenomenal undertaking. You negotiated for us and I know you worked overtime, above and beyond to get us into this house. You got us in touch with the right people and we were able to close on this house in two weeks flat.
No doubt about it, we'll use you anytime we're in the market to sell or buy..
We recently closed our fourth deal with Laura as our realtor. As always I was extremely impressed with Laura’s knowledge and her professionalism. Our last house was listed and sold in just over a month. She stays on top of our local market and knows what it takes to close a deal. She has endless connections in all areas of home service, repair and her attention to detail will make your transaction go smooth! It doesn’t matter if you are a first time home buyer or an established investor- Laura has the answers and can get the job done!
I am happy to recommend Laura to anyone who not only wants a great realtor, but wants a realtor that they can trust. She actually recommended we move into a rental home we owned instead of selling it, which meant she would lose a commission. We took her advice and I’m glad we did. That honesty in a realtor is difficult to find.
Thank you *SO* much for all your hard work, dedication, quick communication and answering all my questions, and no nonsense, tenacious approach to making this deal go through, Laura! I had a good feeling about you, and have had a wonderful experience working with you, and always felt like I was in good hands and could trust your advice. You made my life, with my new horse property and first home ever:) THANK YOU for that. I am gonna recommend you to all my friends, because you rock.
I used your forms (from your Credit Repair Tips blog) to dispute my credit score after the short sale and it worked, my score was lowered to 691 and after the dispute it's 720. Thanks for the tips.
After being diagnosed with a lifelong auto immune disorder my husband and I needed a one story home and were considering foreclosing on our house, luckily I knew Laura and she told me of our option to short sale our home and also educated us on the fact that we were eligible for certain loans due to my hardship, she laid out our options and then led us through not only our short sale but found us the home of our dreams a week after our short sale closed.
Laura is extremely dedicated to helping her clients 110% she will always make you the first priority and educate you every step of the way, she is the most amazing, hardworking agent out there and I now recommend her to all of my friends and family and clients, if you aren’t sure if you should foreclose or short sale know that you do have options and Laura is the go to person to help guide you in the right direction , she always had our best interest in mind and I am now in my dream one story home thanks to her guidance and patience and dedication!

Laura is an amazing realtor. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the entire east valley and understood exactly what we wanted in a home and neighborhood. She was able to direct us to a neighborhood that we originally would not have considered and it is perfect for us, completely exceeding our expectations. Also, she has a wonderful network of people to help the entire process go smoothly, basically she has a resource for everything you could possibly need. We loved working with Laura; she is intelligent, hard-working, and energetic. Lastly, we know Laura has a lot of clients, but she always made us feel like we were a very important client to her.
I have used Laura on four separate transactions and each time I have received comments from the other agents and prospective buyers about how amazing she is. I never realized it until I went and used a friend's wife as a favor what a mess. 90 days later Laura took over and was able to move the property in less then 30 days. I appreciate her flexibility when it comes to meeting with me, showing properties or pulling together data late in the evening. I will use no one else as long as she is living in Arizona.
