" There is not another agent I would work with in the Richmond area. Laura negotiated the sale of two homes for us. One of these homes was previously with two other agents who were unable to sell it. Laura has the ability to think outside the box. She will find a way to get your home sold and at the best price possible. Not only does she possess excellent negotiation skills, but as her client you feel like you are the only one. Laura is always available, she is calm when you may not be. She is able to separate the emotion from the deal. With the sale of both of our homes I knew that Laura would be there every step of the way. She is honest, she is focused, she listens to her client, and she gets the job done." ~Joanne R.
" Laura Peery is extraordinarily talented. Every detail has been completed carefully and professionally. She has been masterful in making our home look its best with beautiful staging, professional still photography and amazing drone videography. Laura is extremely personable and wonderful to work with. We wholeheartedly recommend Laura and The Steele Group Sotheby’s International Realty to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home." ~John & Anita P.
"Laura Peery is a Realtor par excellence. Laura was the lead agent for helping sell my childhood home from my parents estate. I have bought and sold a dozen properties with excellent agents over time and her attentive, professional service was superior to any prior experience. She provided assistance and guidance that was not even contemplated when listing with her. She made numerous trips to Lowes and Home Depot anytime she noticed the smallest detail that might assist in selling the property. She arranged for various talented service people to fix items and make repairs, letting them in and locking the home afterwards .I would use Laura and The Steele Group for all my transactions and wish they were active in other markets where I have real estate. She has my highest recommendation."~ Tom D.
