Testimonials

Laura’s inside knowledge and expertise was invaluable to us. From the beginning nothing was too much trouble and she was passionate about finding the right house for us. Throughout the buying process she was there with great advice and support. Her upbeat approach is infectious!

Simon Bradley

“We decided to start gradually looking at houses to buy, having rented in Rye for two years following a move from the UK. I met Laura through SoleRyders and Friends and we walked 40 miles together and the rest is history. It was the best thing that ever happened. Laura is so fervently passionate about her work and she puts way more than 100% into everything she does. Before we even looked at any houses, she took me for a realistic, ‘hand on heart’ tour of Rye, which I really appreciated. This helped us to narrow down exactly what we were looking for and where. Being new to the whole process of buying property in the US, Laura held our hand every step of the way. In my mind though, the one thing that puts Laura apart from her peers is her unequivocal honesty and integrity. You never for one minute feel that she is trying to sell you something to get her commission, or add to her sales numbers. She believes in true client and family satisfaction. Working with Laura was an absolute pleasure. Her whole-hearted and sincere approach to buying a house made the whole process as stress free as possible. I would have absolutely no reservations whatsoever in recommending Laura. She is quite simply amazing!”

Caitlin Verdier

“Laura DeVita found the perfect house for us! She knew right away which were our family needs and it took us only one morning to find our house. She was also really helpful during all the buying process helping us to find the most professional people; She has always been available for us, with that big smile of hers!”

Josep-Maria, Laura, Alex, Clara and Martina Farres

When we decided to sell our house, we interviewed all of the top salespeople in our area. Each has an impressive portfolio of completed sales and a good handle on the market. But Laura has so much more. She has a strong business and accounting background which makes her an excellent negotiator. As one of her other references told me, “She is savvy, savvy, savvy.” She also has a great personality and a wonderful ability to make people on both sides of the transaction feel comfortable. She is not alienating to potential buyers, but instead has a win-win attitude that gets the job done. She is proactive and efficient, even under extremely challenging timelines. When we met her, we told her we wanted to have the house listed within 6 days, have a broker’s open house within 7 days, and a public open house within 9 days of our first meeting. She did a ton of legwork up front, even before we hired her, to ensure she could meet all of those targets. Despite the tight timeline, her marketing was top notch, and our house was sold within 48 hours after our public open house at a price we were very happy with. We would not hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone in need of real estate services. She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.

Laura Devita is a terrific realtor. She is very personable, a great listener and it is easy to work with her. She brings to the table deep knowledge of the market and a very strategic approach to pricing and selling a home. She does not over inflate your expectations to win your business but she over delivers in terms of results. Our house sold in a few days and thanks to her smart negotiating we were thrilled with the final price. I could not recommend a realtor more highly.
