Laura Doucette's Clients Testimonials
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.

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 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
Julie & Anton, Hamilton On.
Fantastic service! The best thing about Laura was her willingness to point out the flaws in a home -- this made me feel like she was really in my corner, not just looking to make a quick sale. Every step of the way she was patient, warm, caring, and always professional. She responded to all texts and calls quickly, and with her by my side, I never felt lost or confused about where I stood in the buying process. Thanks Laura!

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!

Thanks again for EVERYTHING, you are a phenomenal realtor and person. We couldn't have done it as seamlessly without you. I will refer you to everyone I know...because the service you provided me goes beyond the call of duty!
Robert, Hamilton Mountain
Thank you for everything; your special attention to detail, your knowledge, your expertise, and your help in educating me. You truly do go the extra mile and I appreciate everything you have done to help me make my dream come true!
Pam, Central Mountain ON.
Having Laura working with us in the purchase of a home was a wonderful experience. Her sense of what a homebuyer is looking for is very keen. What my wife and myself had been looking for in a home, fell within a narrow margin. The both of us are very pleased as buyers. We will always have Laura as our agent. P.S. Laura is always welcome for a cup of coffee.
Martin and Heather, West Hamilton ON.
"We first met Laura at an open house that we pondered through on a Sunday afternoon. From that first meeting, my husband and I felt that Laura was the right person to help us find our first home. Thanks to Laura's professionalism, tips, easy going attitude without any pressure, and willingness to go beyond her job in finding our first home, our family is now settled into our dream home. Thank-you for making our first home purchase such an exciting one!!!!"
Lisa and Scott, East Mountain ON.
Laura is a wonderful soul, who genuinely cares about what she does and finding you the perfect home. We value her openness and honesty as well as her great sense of humour. She is definately our "Real Estate Agent For Life" and we hope that life is very long, both ours and hers.
Ingrid & Brent, Ancaster ON.
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.

"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.
Philip and Karen"

We love our new home! Laura was fantastic every step of the way. Her knowledge of the local market was invaluable, especially since we had never lived in Hamilton before! She was with us every step of the way. Thanks, Laura!

It's now 5 weeks since I moved into my new house and I'm loving it! I can't thank you enough for all your wise advice, guidance and patience during my long search for a home in this area. I now have a new appreciation for the work you do. You became fully aware of the type of house that I was looking for and provided valuable information on all the ins and outs of negotiating and buying a house.
You have my highest praise and I would readily recommend you to any client!
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, it's neighbourhoods and it's 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 personality 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 downtime.
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 interest in mind. She focusses on the clients 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. Thanks Laura
We met Laura many years ago near the beginning of her career. We had been looking for a new home and the right real estate agent for about 1 year. After meeting Laura we decided to list our starter home with her. She exceeded all of our expectations and soon had our house sold and us moved into our new home. Since then we have bought and sold an investment property and are working on the next. Laura's call back time is second to none. She also offers, in writing, the 100% satisfaction guarantee that states you can fire her and cancel your listing at anytime for any reason. We don't know any other agents that are confident enough to make this offer. Laura will go the extra mile and then even more. NO PRESSURES, NO HASSLES, NO WORRIES.
Ron and Sue, Caledonia ON.
"Thanks for helping us find the right home. We couldn't have done it without your tireless work. It's been a wonderful experience. It means a lot to us that our new home is as important to you as it is to us. We will absolutely, positively call you again when we're ready to upgrade!"
Mike and Sue, West Mountain ON.
"We just want you to know that we appreciate what you have done and still are continuing to do for us with the purchase of our home. We can tell that you are doing all that you can do for us and we know that we can call you anytime if we need to. Having lived in Ontario only a short time, this is especially helpful. Because we are still learning the area and can miss things that you will see because you know the area so well. Please also thank Ron for all the 'behind the scenes work'. All this is appreciated! Thank you!!!"
Marnie and Dave, Grimsby ON.
"Having you help us out on the purchase of our "1st" home has been a wonderful experience. We could not have asked for someone better. Your vast knowledge of the Hamilton area made it easy to find a great house in a great neighborhood. We just want to say thank you Laura for all the hard work you have done and for answering all of our "dumb" questions. You have made 1st time home ownership a pleasant experience!"
Kerry and Tom, Central Mountain, ON.
"Your rare combination of professionalism, integrity and 'humaness', makes you our real estate agent for life."
