Buyer Testimonials

“Honesty, integrity, and sincere representation of clients and their interests – this would not characterize the average salesperson. But Lauree's consummate professionalism and personal dedication is far from average.
From the very beginning, she has made the daunting process of buying my first home a pleasure, keeping me well informed at each stage and making sure I was aware of the resources available to me. She continues to be helpful even after her job is done, which makes her all the more wonderful!”
Graeme C, Buyer of Pine Mountain Lake House
"Lauree bent over backwards to serve us. She seemed to know what we were looking for, and was patient with us, and it paid off. Thanks, Lauree, for your devotion to your job, you are one of the best! We love it here – the house is wonderful!"
Carol and Jim E, Buyers of Pine Mountain Lake house
 “I wanted to personally thank you for a job well done on our home purchase. You have been professional and complete in covering the bases of what needed to be done to help guide it to a close. In the last few weeks the world has turned upside down with a stock market crash, bank implosions, government bailouts and take-overs. The ensuing crash has even touched this purchase, extending out the time it has taken to get closure. Your help in this time undoubtedly kept the deal together. I will extend my kudos to your office as well, as they were always friendly and helpful when I called. It's not just the big things (like finding a new lender when things got crazy!) that are important. It is the clear, regular communication both in email and voice mail.  It's the timely follow-up on items. 
So we thank you. 
Anne and I are looking forward to a beautiful home in the mountains, a retreat away from the stress and a home that will bring us joy for many years to come.” 
David and Anne H, Buyers of Pine Mountain Lake house

"It is with pleasure that we recommend Lauree Borup if you are looking for a vacation home in Pine Mountain Lake (PML) in Groveland CA. We became interested in PML through friends of ours who bought into this community over the years. Through various listings, we decided to contact Lauree back in January of this year. Prior to us going up to explore properties, she sent us a list of potential ones fitting our parameters. When we arrived at her office, she patiently gave us an education of the community and all the pros and cons of being a homeowner in this quaint, gated complex. She then outlined 20 properties that we would view. She drove us around to each property and meticulously described the homes. The one we really liked unfortunately had a bid on it already. We decided to wait.
About a month went by and this specific house came back on the market.
With Lauree's help we started bidding for this foreclosed house. If you ever dealt with a foreclosure, there are many more steps involved especially with the indirect communication with the bank that owns the house. Lauree did a great job in getting all the parties to agree on an assortment of issues. While we were going through the inspection process, Lauree was able to organize a collection of professionals: inspectors, electricians, plumbers, roofers, pest control, etc. For us, as vacation home buyers not familiar with the area, her coordination efforts made this part of the purchase process go extremely well. With a tight closing schedule, there was very little room for delays. Lauree's diligence in following up with all parties made this purchase for us rather smooth considering we were dealing with a bank as owner. In closing, Lauree's organization and follow up, not to mention her extensive experience and contacts, gave us a lot of confidence in recommending her to potential buyers in the Groveland area."
George and Jean C, Buyers of Pine Mountain Lake House
"Lauree was very patient and conscientious in establishing a sales agreement between us and the seller. Although Lauree stepped in at a very difficult time during negotiations “gone bad” she was able to re-establish negotiations and follow through to completion. She made great suggestions regarding local resources and services. I really do appreciate Lauree’s professionalism, without compromise to warmth and friendliness. I would definitely want to work with them again and would be confident to refer clients to them."
