Who Recently Purchased or Sold Their Home!
Our sincerest thanks for all your efforts in the sale of our property!! You provided us with excellent and timely advice. You communicated often, marketed the property well, and were accessible and responsive to our regular questions. You even made it easy for us to take our vacation worry - free knowing that you would put best efforts into addressing any issues that may have surfaced while we were out of the country.
With highest regard,
Liz & Dominic
Laura first contacted me and my wife Tracey through the Sutton Group listings on my request, out of my own curiosity of possible purchasing a house. She was very helpful in narrowing down possible properties, more so than other realtors, so when we were serious about buying a house, we gave her a call to ask if she would be our realtor. This was the best decision:) Laura was not working for a quick buck, she actually cared about what we were to invest in.
Many times she showed us what was good and BAD about the houses we looked at, and she was very timely when it came down to getting in touch with us when she thought a property was well suited for us. In the end, we made a purchase a year ago, and have been very pleased with our decision. No regrets :)

Laura Doucette is the BEST realtor on the "face of the earth"!! I have know Laura since 1992 and have experienced her excellent personal and professional expertise many times. Laura has been involved in all the homes I purchased and sold-5 in total. I am not planning to sell again, but if I were to do so, Laura is THE only agent i would use!!! Laura has gone " above and beyond each and every time". Her knowledge of the real estate business is excellent. I have referred several of my friends to Laura and they have been very satisfied.
Laura is a warm, caring, concerned woman and her personal /professional integrity is unquestionable. Moving is one of the most stressful situations...Laura does everything she can to help make it as "stress-free" as possible. In addition to my previous comments, would like to add that Laura ALWAYS returns phone calls and responds to texts and emails asap!!....regardless of how busy she may be, you always get her full attention!

"I want to thank you Laura, for your exceptional service and devotion to our needs and interests. You went the extra mile for us and on three particular houses pointed out defects which could have gone unnoticed by us and lead to serious difficulties. It was always a pleasure meeting with you and having the reassurance of your extensive and informed knowledge of the Hamilton area by our side. May your career in Real Estate flourish and expand. You deserve it."

I would highly recommend Laura Doucette to anyone looking to sell their home. She came on board with us early in the process when we realized it was time to sell our father's house. She took the time and looked at the property and made recommendations about where we would best use our time and money in the coming months. Then, when it came time to sell she helped us with the staging of the house and spent a lot of time researching similar properties in the area so we could best price the house.
Once on the market, we received multiple offers and the house sold quickly and without any hassles. Throughout the entire process she was always available, knowledgeable and helpful. We couldn't have got through this without her. If anyone was looking to buy or sell a home I would not hesitate to give them Laura's number. She is a kind, caring person that takes real estate to the next level.

To whom it may concern,
I am not normally one to gush, but I honestly can't recommend Laura Doucette highly enough! When my siblings and I decided to sell our late mother's house, we were immersed in quite a bitter dispute over the settling of the estate, an my sister and I - who were on one side of the dispute - were living out of the province at the time. In addition to these complications, the house had fallen into a horrific state of disrepair and was practically a health hazard just to enter. It was not a recipe for a smooth or successful real estate experience.
However, that is exactly what it was. Laura was extremely knowledgeable about the market and the best way to approach the sale. Her strategy to attract the most and right type of buyers worked like a charm. In the end we accepted a higher offer than we had anticipated and all of our conditions were met.
The entire process was surprisingly quick and painless.
I found Laura to be extremely professional and committed. She addressed our concerns and answered all of our (often redundant!) questions with patience and respect, and was upbeat and seemingly tireless. She inspired confidence: in Laura's hands we felt safe, something that cannot be over-valued in our circumstance. She went above and beyond the call of duty in so many ways (she generously gave us advice and helped us months before we even decided to sell the house).
But most importantly to me, she bridged the gap between the warring factions of we siblings. Her empathy, patience and great people skills allowed her to circumvent the acrimony between us and facilitated compromise and agreement. I seriously think she saved us months of bickering and dithering, not to mention increased lawyer's fees! With Laura, everybody was happy. The ease with which the sale proceeded was truly a saving grace in the middle of a difficult situation, and for that I will always be grateful. I highly recommend her!
“My husband and I tried to sell our house privately first. After over 2 months, we still didn't have any offersand we were getting worried as the fall season approached. We listed with Laura and our house sold after only 2 days!!!Laura handled negotiations with confidence and always made decisions with us and not for us. From the first time we met her and discussed price, to the day we accepted the offer, she provided us with a number of options and suggestions based on facts. She knew the marketand she took the time to make sure we understood it too. It was easy to tell she had our best interests in mind during the entire process. Even after the sale, she continues to give us her full attention whenever we have any questions. I feel extremely comfortable referring friends and family to Laura.”
"Working with Laura was like having your best friend beside you during one of the most stressful times in your life. As a military family moving into a new province we were faced with enormous pressure to buy quickly without any knowledge of the city, its neighbourhoods and its proximity to our lifestyle needs. We had a week to do it and with Laura's unmatched knowledge, persistence, dedication, and her down to earth personal approach to her work, by Friday we had our first home. Not only did Laura make time every day for us, she took the added time out of her week to give us a deluxe tour of the city, noting all the main freeways, travel routes to work and points of interest to tie up our down time. We truly can't say enough about Laura Doucette. She is a unique and rare realtor who shows no pressure and only has your best interests in mind. She focuses on the client’s needs as opposed to the 'sale' and does so each day with a positive welcoming smile. We wholeheartedly will recommend her to everyone and are pleased our first home experience was completed with such a professional, friendly and warm-hearted woman.
"Laura is a great agent. She knows Hamilton and she knows houses. Her expertise with both was invaluable. She also understood exactly what we were looking for after only a few conversations, and was able to match us up with the perfect house in no time. She's a pleasure to deal with and a great resource. We would heartily recommend her as an agent for anyone looking to buy in the Hamilton area."
