The Laue team was a stellar group to work with. They were well educated on market conditions, social media, nuances of the market/buyers. Their work ethic is second to none: always responsive, always available, no concern was too small for them to address. Their cumulative knowledge on every aspect of the real estate market made it an absolute pleasure to work with them. They were definitely my life line through this process. I highly recommend them.

Debi, Nic and the entire Laue team are excellent! Their experience is evident and I know they will take fantastic care of all their clients!!

We recently purchased a home with Nic Wilson and The Laue Team. And we will most definitely be using him to sell our other home. We couldn't be more pleased or impressed. His knowledge of real estate in the area, consideration for our needs, and help through the home search and purchase process was phenomenal. He is nice, hard working, professional, thorough, and did not disappoint us at any point during our months-long search. We would recommend anyone looking to purchase or sell a home contact Nic and The Laue Team.

— Kristina Johnson

What more can be said. My home sold in one day for more than the asking price. Excellent job marketing the home and staging it to sell. I would definitely work with the Laue team again.

— Laitta, Richard

"Thanks again for such a smooth experience with the sale of our home. That was our third real estate transaction in as many years and it was incredible to see the difference between our previous realtor and your team. You will be our first call for any future needs and first referral should any friends or colleagues be in the market to buy or sell a home."
