Testimonials

Printable Testimonials
Laura assisted us with the purchase of our home in Chevy Chase, Maryland. There were several other offers in play, and it was Laura’s sharp skills that secured the contract for us. Laura understands the MD/VA/DC area real estate market, is knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, and takes the time to understand her clients and what they are seeking in a home. Working in residential real estate myself, I knew Laura was the perfect balance of what we were seeking in an agent: warm and approachable, with a shrewd business sense and great communication throughout the process. Most importantly, she sincerely cares. Working with Laura made an experience that can often be stressful a very enjoyable one. I would highly recommend her.

Laura Steuart was a pleasure to work with during our house hunt and did an excellent job walking us through the home-buying process. She has a very good understanding of the neighborhoods in the NW DC area and can give you a good indication on what true home values are throughout the area. She took the time to get a very good understanding of exactly what type of house we were looking for at the start of our search. Laura also has great recommendations for home inspectors, contractors and mortgage brokers to facilitate the closing process.

My wife and I worked with Laura this Spring to find a new house for our growing family. With a 10-month-old daughter and a son on the way, we were most concerned about the neighborhood and surrounding area that we would be moving to, and Laura was incredibly knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods that we considered. She was extremely responsive and accessible along the way and helped us find a great house.

Laura became a member of our family over the course two years helping us find and buy a Bethesda, MD, home, and sell our DC home. She has vast knowledge of and experience in the marketplace and exceptional relationships in the realtor community. We have since recommended ONLY Laura to other families looking to buy/sell in the area. She's the best!

Charlie Johnson
Partner
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, LLP



Laura has sold a house for us, and was also our agent for the purchase of our new home. She had clearly done her research on our submarket and she carefully priced the sale of our home. Her marketing efforts were well planned and resulted in a bidding war, and ultimately in the sale of our home at a price above our asking price. On the purchase, Laura was realistic, but aggressive and was creative in crafting a unique offer that met our goals.

On a more personal note, Laura was a pleasure to work with. She really listened to us and focused on what was most important to us. She was knowledgeable and she was comforting during what can be a stressful time. I highly recommend Laura! Whether you are buying or selling, you will not be disappointed with Laura. She is a very hard-working, smart, creative, and fun person.

Lauren Block Bauer

Laura worked tirelessly to find the best house for us. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. She is honest, straightforward, and easy to communicate with — usually returning phone calls and emails within the hour. She thinks outside of the box in showing you how to decorate a potential home, and her connections in the real estate market are invaluable. I will continue to highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.

Emily Duncan

I've had the privilege of working with Laura on two separate occasions— as a buyer in 2012 and most recently as a seller. Both experiences were flawless and easy! Laura and her staff walked me through every step of the process, were available to answer any and all of my questions, and really worked hard to get the job done. In fact, Laura was on vacation with her family when I purchased my current home in 2012! Despite being thousands of miles away, she managed to pull together a winning contract. I'm certain that without her knowledge and expertise it never would have happened. I would recommend Laura Steuart to anyone looking for a realtor without hesitation!

Laura has assisted me with three transactions: two in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and one in the 14th Street corridor in DC. Laura's knowledge of both submarkets was tremendous, and her thoughtful and strategic suggestions during the negotiations were very helpful and allowed me to optimize value for each transaction. I cannot thank Laura enough for her help and expertise.

Britt Snider
Senior Vice President

In the competitive Washington, DC, metro real estate market, it is crucial to have a knowledgeable and confident real estate agent on your side. For our family, Laura Steuart was that agent. Without her guidance, we would not have been successful with both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our existing house in such a timely manner. Laura and her team were invaluable to us.

Jimmy Dodson
Project Manager
Paradigm Development Co.



Thanks to Laura's knowledgeable counsel and marketing acumen, my wife and I were able to sell our house, on favorable terms, in less than two weeks. She then worked tirelessly to help us find the ideal fit for our new home. Simply put, Laura exceeded our expectations, in all regards, for both transactions.

Malcolm Burke

Laura's business skills and market expertise were key in both the sale and purchase of our homes in Bethesda. Laura not only sold our home before it went to market, but also sold it over the asking price. She also quickly secured us a favorable contract on our current home. She was reliable and responsive and I would highly recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.
