Coaching

Buying your first home is the most important financial decision in your life, and it will either set you up for success or for failure.

The thing is that you cannot trust your agent or lender because they don't have your best interest in mind.

This is why it is critical to get educated and to do as much research as you can.

As a first-time homebuyer coach, I help you see what you are not seeing and ask the questions that you still don't know that you should be asking.

In return, you get PEACE OF MIND, you SAVE TIME (hundreds of hours of research), and SAVE MONEY (tens of thousands of dollars).

Looking to buy a home is hard but Laura is starting to make it easier with her video calls. We were able to talk about the steps of buying a home as well as the resources needed. It has been a great help knowing that there are people on our side wanting to help us get our first home.

The First-Time Homebuyer Assessment was incredibly valuable in helping me consider things from all angles when thinking through my first home purchase. Laura is a great coach and partner in this process -- she has both the knowledge and resources to help first-time homebuyers navigate this process with ease!

I worked with Laura after listening to her home buying podcast and she helped me tremendously with buying my first home. Her expertise and empathy were invaluable because she provided advice about everything from obtaining an independent home inspector to securing a loan with the best terms. She also has interviewed many experts for every stage of the home buying process and her unbiased insights enabled me to understand each step of the process thoroughly and avoid common pitfalls that other new home buyers have experienced. She also asked me detailed questions to understand my individual situation which I appreciated. I will definitely work with her again and I highly recommend her to anyone who is buying a home for the first time or who feels like their past homebuying experiences could have been improved.

Laura was very kind and generous to spend some of her time talking with my wife and me about the possibility of buying our first home. We both appreciated her insight and thought-provoking questions, as well as her good humor and candid conversation. She encouraged us not to buy into the scarcity mindset and frenzy that surrounds home buying - but to take our time, relax, and even rent until we are sure.
