Lainie Floyd & Mersene Norbom are a terrific real estate brokerage team. I recently worked with them to find my new home. I can honestly share that both Lainie and Mersene are committed to finding the best-suited home for you as that is exactly what they did for me.Throughout my experience with them, we were in constant communication about properties. They kept me apprised of what was entering the market and what changes were occurring to properties of interest. Together we explored many possibilities and determined if they were right for me. Subsequently, we would determine a plan including what a solid bid would be for a property to ensure it would be considered. Lastly, the combination of both agents allowed me to feel confident in my decisions as each brings something different to the analysis of a home. They each bring their strengths to contribute to the process. I was thrilled with the attentive service and thoughtful, creative advice I received from this dedicated, dynamic duo.Susan Robison
There are really not enough words to describe just how appreciative I am of everything you have done for me! And yes, you definitely went over and above with all the extra things you did - I appreciate it and you! I know for a fact that you do a lot for your client’s but this was a lot. Thanks Ladies - you did an excellent job of keeping me from losing my mind and then there’s ALL the extra work that you did!!! I’m sure that it was more extra work than you would have liked!You’re truly the best and I’m so grateful for you and your professionalism as well as friendship!!LJ
Working with the LM team was a pleasure. Lanie and Mersene were knowledgeable and responsive as we listed and rapidly sold my home. They were helpful and professional as they guided me through the entire process. I cannot recommend them highly enough.Lynn Breidenbach, Seller
Creative, Energetic, and on-point in every way. Mersene and Laine held our hands and hearts through the whole process of change. They were dedicated to our business as well as the care and concern of the home. They were accessible at all times and pulled out all the stops making the process of finding buyers that fit, all the while making sure they listened to our needs and our desires, they honored that we mattered and came first. They were patient and honestly made it fun!JoJo Keane
We can’t say enough about working with Lainie and Mersene. It felt like we were house hunting with family! They are both great listeners, smart, kind, and loving, and they top that off with knowledge of the area/ market, perfect professionalism, and ruthlessness whenever necessary. They are incredible advocates for their buyers. To top it off, we were first time buyers and Lainie and Mersene walked us through every step of the process. They helped us find the right loan, an attorney, inspector, etc. They continue to make local service recommendations for us as well - way above and beyond their remit. You won’t regret working with these women - they are experts in what they do and take good care of their people.Josie Amendola and Patrick Barker
As my closing date fast approaches, I wanted to reach out and say how much I appreciated the staging work you did for both of my houses. Last summer, you made my home more beautiful than I imagined possible. It rented immediately and that’s because of how you prepared it for rental. Then, when I changed my mind about owning a second home, you were able to stage it so that I could put it on the market right away. I was so grateful for your special touch. Plus, there was very little monetary output in terms of purchasing items for the homes in either case. I was thrilled with your hourly fee and how quickly you and Liz did your magic using my own furniture, both times! In fact, I didn’t want to leave either house after you did your thing. It goes without saying how much I also appreciated your real estate skills. Your willingness to do open houses every Thursday and Sunday were key to getting my house sold, during the Holidays even! I can’t thank you enough, Mersene. Please let anyone who is thinking of using you for staging or selling their home to give me a call.TANYA

We used Lainie and Mersene (LM Homes) to find us a home in the Westport/Southport area. They were instrumental in negotiating a tricky purchase. Their professionalism, experience, support, toughness and tact got the job done. They are just tireless agents in the way they represent clients. No detail is overlooked and their commitment is unparalleled. We have never experienced better. You would be fortunate to have them represent you!Michael & Marigrace Lalli
