Seller Testimonials

Comments from Groveland Real Estate Sellers about Lauree Borup

"My wife and I have purchased six homes and sold four in the fifty-seven years that we have been married Without a doubt Lauree has been head and shoulders above all other Realtorsin regard to professionalism and attention to detail. She knew who to contact to prepare our home for market and her saes skills are second to none. With the housing market being very slow lauree was able to work with both seller and buyer and come to a fair market price." Jim and Mayda Reynosa, Sellers of Pine Mtn Lake House

"Lauree is the finest real estate professional you will ever find! She conducts her business with the utmost intelligence, honesty and integrity and is very successful in handling difficult transactions. The sale of my Mother’s home in Pine Mountain Lake was fraught with problems, including several surprise expensive repairs. She handled each situation with expert negotiating skills which ultimately finalized the sale. In the end, we received a very fair price due to Lauree’s years of expertise and superior ability in dealing with the real estate market.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"   The Gettys Family, Sellers of Pine Mountain Lake house

"You again went above and beyond our expectations as an agent. Your brilliance in negotiation, knowledge of writing contracts and mostly your patience in working with us, well ME. Being a realtor myself, I could have picked any agent in Groveland. I chose you because I feel you have the greatest gift for selling properties and for representing buyers. You make things work and although it seems effortless on your part and you continue to remain extremely professional, I know it is a difficult task to keep transactions together. I would recommend you to anyone that I know. Jeanne and Tom Duggan, Sellers of PML House
 

"I liked the detailed plan of action to sell my house, and the realistic advice on the market and its salability. I was impressed and grateful for Lauree’s help, knowledge and expertise.
She is one-of-a-kind!"
Budd S, Seller of Pine Mountain Lake house

"Bob and I want to commend you for your over-the-top excellent handling of the sale of our Groveland home. It was not an easy sale and took some time for completion but you hung in there with us, researched any issue that came up, and stood behind our decisions By now, you have to be a well water treatment expert for any water issues that may arise in the sale of a mountain home. We more than appreciate all the time you spent in researching the well water questions that our buyers needed answers to. We also appricate the work you did with different appraisers in order to properly appraise a manufactured home, especially one on river front property. We highly recommend you to any future possible buyers or sellers of property."    Nancy and Bob Gundy, Sellers of House in Hardin Flat

 
"Everything of which I had some doubtful thoughts were courteously and carefully explained. If a situation should ever arise that I would again have real estate dealings in Groveland, Lauree would be my representative."    Ted C, Seller of Pine Mountain Lake townhouse
 
“Lauree completed the sale of our home in 2009 to our complete satisfaction. We were very pleased with the way the transaction was handled from the beginning to the end. When listing the property she gave us fine advice on preparing the house for showing, with handling any needed repairs, "staging" the house inside and out, and arriving at a fair price in the current market. She also prepared information regarding comparable homes  on the market. She prepared a very comprehensive and eye-appealing brochure and on-line site with many good photos of the house and surroundings. A Realtors Open House was held promptly. The house was shown many times. We reduced the price as the market dropped and then received an acceptable offer. Lauree then guided us very well through the negotiations of counter-offers and closing negotiations. This is the second time Lauree has handled a real estate transaction for us, and we would not hesitate to have her represent us again.”     Fred and Harriet C, Sellers of Pine Mountain Lake House
 
"Wow, a gargantuan task completed!
I had my doubts about ever getting the mine property sold with all of the drawbacks and complications it had. But, you handled it with tenacity and expertise that I really appreciated. It has been a pleasure dealing with you and having such a conscientious realtor! I’ve probably made my last trip to Groveland, but I just wanted to personally thank you and wish you well in the future."
Ray and Gina Stanley, Sellers of 25 acres

"Thank you for all your hard work. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who asks". Steve and Mary Benson, Sellers of $1.1 million house in PML

Lauree Borup has now handled two real estate transactions for my wife and I. This last one was from out of state. Her local knowledge is impressive and she made the transactions flawless. She gives 150% to her clients by helping out in anyway possible to make your buying and selling experience feel like family. I highly recommend her services without reservation. She is the best! John and Vicki Tacheff, Sellers of House in PML

"For 5 years we have been trying to sell a house & only because of Lauree were we successful. Some agents backed out, but Lauree hung in there to the end with enormous patience and occasional humor. Lauree has a nice calm way about her to convince you what needs to be done to improve the property & it worked. It IS important to listen to your Realtor regarding these requests. Lauree knows the right people, she looks for those that are reasonable & was always reassuring that the property would sell, encouraging us to not give up even though we wanted to due to an upside down market. We would surely hire Lauree again because we know we can wholly trust her and depend on her to come through when it is important. We will always be grateful for her patience and hard work, not to mention that she did not make "killing" selling this low-priced property and she still worked for us. She will remain a wonderful memory and friend. With huge appreciation…" The Vogts & the Hills, Sellers of House in Yosemite Vista Estates

 
"Before anymore time slips away, I wanted to write
you and let you know how much I appreciate all
your work on the Black Road property. You continued to advertise for me for the entire lo-o-o-o-ng time the property was on the market and you also stayed cheerful throughout the rather unique escrow period Thanks Lauree, you’re not only the best on the hill, but, you’re simply The Best."

"Lauree is an expert in Pine Mountain Lake real estate. She knows the market, the agents, the properties, and the community. Lauree gave us sound advice about pricing, preparing and staging our home that led to a sale in 6 weeks. She was also able to refer to us professional and reasonabye-priced tradesmen to get our property ready for sale and to take care of buyer-requested repairs. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the service we received from Lauree and from the RE/MAX Yosemite Gold agency."  James and Deborah Brown, Sellers of PML house

"Great job of merchandising! The promotional flyers were great. I appreciate the fact that you kept in touch even if nothing was happening. As an out-of-state seller, I appreciated the way you kept me informed of the market and the progression of the sale."

"I feel very fortunate that Lauree was my agent. She was always available for my questions, was good at suggestions to make the house salable and worked tirelessly toward that goal."

 “Thank you so much for the great job you have done marketing our Mountain Vista properties.
In a less than perfect market, you were able to market our properties so fast that we actually pulled one off the market. And, great agent that you are, you even brought us a great offer on that one!
We have known you and worked with you for years and picked you to market our properties because you are the best! Nice to find you are fun to work with as well.
Again, we thank you. As retired Realtors we could have marketed our properties ourselves. We are so glad that we had you sell our properties for us as you got us top dollar. If we had tried to market them ourselves we would not have asked enough money.
Employing you did not cost us anything, it made us lots of money and made our lives so much easier. When we sell the rest of our properties, you will be our ‘Beloved Agent’. Thanks again.”
Joel & Vicki Vermeer, Sellers of three acreage properties: 21, 25 and 25 acres each

In searching the internet my son came across your website and remarked "Lauree Borup is more active and does seem to know more". Your expertise in acreage sales and land development within County regulations coupled with your negotiating skills helped to finalize the contract for both me and the buyer in a timely and smooth manner. I am very pleased with the outcome and happy to recommend your realty any time.”
Sincerely, Earlene B, Seller of 10 Acres
 
"You don’t really know who to call when you want to sell your home.
So I asked around.
Lauree at RE/MAX was recommended 3 out or 4.
I think the confidence she showed was the best part. There was not one step that I was in doubt about.
She had all the answers and it felt good. Professional all the way."
