Gino Polizzotto

Laura Freed‘s professionalism and experience in the real estate market offered me a sense of comfort and assurance about selling my home. No problem was too big for her. She was available every step of the way with sound advice and help. I would not hesitate to work with Laura again and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Deborah Stevens

Laura is fabulous.

Eliza & Courtney Wemyss

Tremendous real estate IQ!

Michael Murray

Laura was recommended to us by both family and friends, leaving us with very high expectations. Navigating a "remote" move is not the easiest or most common, but Laura handled it with professionalism and ease. Laura is the absolute best! While the market created its fair share of challenges, Laura helped us navigate a number of bidding wars and always had our best interests in mind. When we finally found our perfect home, we knew, in part, because Laura was also in love with it. Over the 3 months we worked with her, we developed so much trust and got to know her so well that it was like dealing with a family member. We will continue to recommend Laura to anyone we know who is moving to the area or relocating to a new home, again, she is the best!

Mary Ellen Davenport

This was our first time buying a house but we were in such good hands at every step. Buying a house for the first time is terrifying on its own, but in this wild housing market, we were so happy to have Laura. She was able to find us a perfect house in our budget and was completely hands on throughout the process so we never felt like we were on our own. Laura is incredibly knowledgable of the area and was able to alert us to potential issues (and solutions) that other realtors with less intimate knowledge of the area would have missed. She is an absolute pro - the best of the best. We wouldn't have done it any other way and I would strongly recommend Laura to anyone interested in buying or selling a house!

Allison O'Shea

We have had great experience working with Laura and would highly recommend her!

Julia McLean

Laura F and MaryAnn were amazing to work with in a very stressful situation. They listened and understood quickly the home I was looking for. The deep expertise and wisdom about the local market made all the difference. When the need arises. I would absolutely turn to Laura Freed.

Amy Keller

Many thanks to Laura and Marianne!

Evan Eckman

Laura Freed Ancona is an an outstanding realtor and a pleasure to work with. She provided excellent advice on preparing the house for sale. She and Christy Kinsman did a beautiful job staging the house. She was always responsive to my questions and concerns and managed offers wisely. Laura expertly navigated some difficult circumstances, always remaining professional with the goal of closing the sale in mind. She was extremely generous with her time, overseeing seeing some of the necessary repairs. She developed a good working relationship with the other realtor involved and all service professionals. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone planning to sell their home.

Janine Gordon

Laura Freed is phenominal. She did a wonderful job for us. This was a difficult transaction -- lots of unique and difficult issues. Without Laura, I don't think this house would have been sold. She is thorough, thoughtful, smart and a committed honest genuine person. She is the best!

Philip Danford

Laura embodies all the values so important to both buyers and sellers…a passionate concern for both with the experience to identify all issues and answer all questions in a professional manner. Laura would be good for anyone’s business.

Joseph Poppalardo

Our realtor was extremely responsive and helpful and had us sold extremely quickly!

Amanda Paktinat

Laura Freed is fantastic. She has helped us buy / sell a few homes and always very insightful and very in tune with the market.

Justin Pinkham

Laura did a fantastic job for us selling our Ridgefield house recently. 5 years ago in a tight selling market she found us a quality tenant and then this spring when we were ready to sell, she was the only broker we considered. She evaluated the property, advised us as to maintenance to be done, and how to price the property. Once listed, she promoted our property and generated a lot of traffic. Which ultimately lead to a recently closed sale at a price we are very happy with. Laura then sourced a great option for us to downsize to and was able to make a another great deal. We couldn’t recommend Laura more highly, she’s a pro!

Bruce Ruehl, Review For Laura Freed Ancona

Laura did a great job for us! Five years ago in a tough market she found us a quality tenant and then worked closely with us this spring to get the property prepared for re-listing and provided great insight on pricing for our market. Once listed, she advised us on pricingpromoted the property very well and generated a high level of traffic.

Bruce Ruehl

Laura was incredible from the first meeting through the sale! Her knowledge, demeanor, and determination made for a seamless experience. And Marianne was fantastic to work with, too!

Amanda Duff

Laura has been great. Very professional and calm. I recommend her as often as I can.

Vincent Falotico

Laura was very efficient, great follow up & took care of business.

Christopher Cullen

What more can be said than selling one's house in less than 24 hours at 10% above asking?

WIlliam Hildreth

Laura Freed was professional , candid , knew the market and provided good advice She was our advocate in negotiations and led the process well

Douglas Tough

Laura Freed Ancona deserves her great reputation. We enjoyed working with her. She offered good advice and had some excellent workers "on call" to help us get the house show ready after our tenant left.

Pamela Leahy

We loved working with Laura! She is by far the best and most professional realtor my husband and I have ever worked with. Laura guided us through the home buying process and made everything as easy as possible on our end. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for their new home.

Laura Petrucelli

There are no words to express the gratitude that we have for Laura Freed Ancona. After spending a day with us she knew exactly what we wanted (which turned out be something totally different than what we thought we wanted) and found us the perfect home within 3 days! Her professionalism and follow up during the process was stellar and it was a real pleasure working with her. We have already referred 2 friends to her!

Robert Delman

Laura left no stone unturned.

Lynn Delman

Laura exhibits everything you want from the best of realtors. No nonsense, no BS, to the point. Confidence that she WILL sell your house. This makes the seller relaxed and instills confidence in them (buyer). I honestly don’t know how she does it. We were very fortunate to have her. Thank you Laura and William Pitt Sotheby's.

Paul Miner

Laura Freed Ancona was so great to work with!

Robert & Kimberly Clemnza

Helaine Fiedler

Laura Ancona is/was outstanding!

Joseph S. Montgomery

Laura came highly recommended from my friend Brian, and Sophie and I couldn't be happier with how the process went and the house that we bought. The whole experience was quick and exciting and Laura's advice and knowledge was absolutely vital to everything going as smoothly as it did. She went above and beyond, helped us find a beautiful home but also welcomed us to the area and offered her help going forward. We are grateful for her help!

Andrew Van Wyngarden

Laura Freed-Ancona did a wonderful job understanding our needs and exactly what we were looking for. As volatile as the market was she was a calming voice in helping us land the perfect house.

Chris Svendsen

Laura was [email protected] She taught me patience.

Elizabeth Murray

Laura’s knowledge, professionalism and negotiating skills made her a pleasure to work with!

Manuela Sementilli

Laura Freed has been working with me on my various properties for a number of years. She is an excellent realtor, knows her clients well and listens to what they have to say. I plan to use Laura as my realtor for as long as I own properties anywhere.

Bettina Rosser

I found Laura Freed Anconna to be well organized, businesslike and responsive. She seems very experienced and well connected. The contractors she suggested for renovations on the house we sold were all competent and well priced. Her staff all did their work competently and on time. And in her marketing campaign for the house, I think she really left no stone unturned. One buyer failed to obtain a mortgage. Laura was on the job the next day and had another lined up pretty quickly. She was a pleasure to deal with. I just recommended her to someone in Old Greenwich who would like to sell their house and buy something in Ridgefield or Redding.

Frederik Engle (Estate of)

Laura is very professional. she gave great advice regarding pricing. She followed up whenever required. She helped walk us through th inspection and closing process without a hitch. We couldn't be happier.

Robert Abshire

Laura gets the job done, as simple as that.

Margit von Fekete

Laura was very professional and attentive to our needs. We were very pleased with the transaction.

Marion Grebow Olsen

Best in class service and actionable insights

Chuck Waimon

Laura was knowledgeable and on top of her stuff. Knows the area very well and her team was great too!

Sean Coreth

Laura was great and did everything we could have asked for. From the initial sales plan all the way through closing we were lucky to have her working with us.

Thomas Hauser

Our agent did a great job publicizing our home, photographing it and helping us correctly price it. She worked hard to get our difficult buyers to follow through and purchase our home.

Margaret Inserra

We had a great experience with Laura Freed Ancona. She was pleasant, knowledgeable and very professional. Her relaxed demeanor helped take most of the anxiety out of the overall process.

Kieran Xanthos

Laura was a pleasure to work with. She was quick to get back to us anytime we had a question. She was also very knowledgeable about all things home related. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!!!

Shannon Xanthos

Excellent service, thank you very much Laura.

Liviu & Rodica Cadareanu

Laura Freed was a bastion of perseverance, support, and resourcefulness over the 16 month journey from listing to closing. Although Laura was, at the outset, a bit overly optimistic about the value / salability of my property ... i was overly skeptical about the property ever closing. Were it not for Laura's competence and diligence, i'm certain the property would still be on the market.

Ned Adamson-Strauss

Laura helped us sell in a softening market through smart, targeted marketing. Laura guided the sale through a very challenging negotiation and settlement. We would recommend her to buyers and sellers alike without hesitation.

Laura was a pleasure to work with with!!!! She knows everything! real estate, local vendors at her finger tips, and how to get the deal done always working all the different parties to get to the finish line. Its not my first house and i know its not easy to be in the middle of buyer, seller,  banks and lawyers It was a pleasure working with Laura

Josh, Buyer

Laura is first rate. We recommend her with gratitude and wholehearted enthusiasm She understood our house and its value. She understood what we wanted. She was brilliant at staging, photography, and presentation. Her attention never failed. And she got us to a successful conclusion.

Stratford Sherman

I highly recommend my agent Laura Freed Ancona. She is a professional and resourceful agent. She always answered our questions or concerns promptly. She never tried to push us to make decisions, but instead, helped us to evaluate the various situations and make the appropriate offer. Her  perseverance eventually made the deal happen. Without her help, we won’t be able to have our current house. Thank you, Laura!

Roger Liu

Laura's holistic consultative approach and her business experience made an enormous difference in our being able to reach a successful closing. Her objective advice on the obstacles we faced and help in overcoming them were invaluable.

Dan O.

Laura was AMAZING to work with. Not only did she identify houses that were within our budget and thoughtfully considered, but she was with us for every step of the way when we needed advice on home assessments, mortgages, contractors, and other legal steps. She even returned calls and emails nearly  instantaneously while she was on vacation, and helped us tremendously with all steps needed when we needed to expedite our home purchase. I will be forever grateful for her help, and impressed with her professionalism, efficiency, and advocacy on behalf of us (her clients). Couldn't recommend her any more highly!!!

Kate J.

We first met Laura when she was the agent on the house we bought. She had a way about her that was professional, fair and reasonable, and made negotiations positive. We just sold our house and, again, would highly recommend her if you want a smooth and well run experience. Her people skills afford  her the ability to get things done in a way that people want to do business with her again
