My Client Reviews
Ed and Kate I.
Laurie was an exceptional real estate agent who turned into a friend. She was realistic, communicative, kind, and very knowledgeable about the Greater Grand Rapids area. We were moving in from out of state, and she even helped us by giving us an apartment list. I cannot say enough about her abilities and, more important, her personality.
Laurie was very kind and patient with me as I was trying to purchase a condo in Rockford. She guided me through all the paperwork and answered any questions or concerns that I had. I would definitely recommend Laurie to any individual or family looking to purchase a home.
John and Carrie L.
Working with Laurie was great. She went above and beyond helping us find our new home. Laurie answered all of our questions about the area, and was knowledgeable about all things real estate. She was a joy to work with.
Laurie was absolutely amazing to work with. She is very organized, detail oriented and excited about helping to sell your home. I could tell working with her that she is so passionate about her work. She was a wonderful communicator always ensuring I had everything I needed to know about each step involved in the sale of my home.
The best thing about working with Laurie is that she took the time to understand my needs and preferences. She seemed to know instinctively just how much attention I wanted and when I wanted time to think things through. She not only showed me houses, but talked over strategies for making offers in a tough market. It was incredibly helpful. Thanks, Laurie!
Lee and Jennifer F.
Laurie made it VERY easy for us as first time home buyers to find our perfect starter home. Her knowledge of the industry is imperative, especially in an intimidating marketplace for newcomers. Any questions or concerns we had were promptly answered/explained and she always made sure we were taken care of throughout the whole process. A friend of ours recommended her to us and we will gladly pay it forward and recommend to others. Laurie's professionalism, responsiveness and overall knowledge is exactly the resource that a home buyer/seller needs in this crazy market. You will not regret having her on your side!
Michelle and Phil W.
Laurie was great to work with! We were out of state buyers and Laurie made the process very easy. She made herself available to show us homes each time we were scheduled to be in town, was patient and provided us with information on the areas we were looking at. Laurie is very personable, communicated consistently and went the extra mile from our first appointment through closing. Thank you Laurie for all of your help and patience!
Out of the multiple realtors I interviewed, Laurie was the obvious choice of who I wanted to work with. She is thorough, professional, prompt with her communication, and I truly felt she had my best interest in mind. She was conscious of my hesitations with having people in my house during the pandemic and went above and beyond to set up a sanitation station at the front entrance with sanitizer, clean pens, a sign in, Lysol wipes, and shoe booties. She made this selling process extremely easy for me and was enjoyable to do business with. I would recommend listing with Laurie to any friend, relative, or coworker.
Previous review from Amanda T.
Laurie went above and beyond, making sure that this major life decision for me was an enjoyable and fun process. I have referred her as an agent to a number of close friends and coworkers, all of whom have enjoyed their home buying experience with her as she is extremely detailed with her work, professional, and communicates in a timely manner. Even as a seasoned agent with many many years of experience, she went above her normal duties as a professional by educating me throughout each step of the process along the way. As a first time home buyer, she made me feel extremely comfortable and confident, leaving me with the perfect home. It is obvious why the majority of Laurie's clients come from referrals. It's because she truly is the best at what she does. I would recommend Laurie Tamburrino to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in West Michigan.
Working with Laurie was an absolute pleasure. From our initial meeting to the closing Laurie was a tremendous resource. Laurie's knowledge of the market/process really made this process easy to navigate.
Shana and Brad .
Laurie was great to work with! Unlike some other realtors we met with, she was attentive without being too pushy, which we really appreciated. She also was always very easy to get ahold of when needed. We ended up deciding to build a house and she would go to the house as it was being built and send us pictures (without being asked) of the progress since we were living out of town. We thought this was very thoughtful and much appreciated!!
Our son referred Laurie to us. We live in Florida and wanted to buy a place in Grand Rapids to be able to spend more time around the grandchildren. Since the pandemic, we haven't been willing to fly up to visit like we normally would. So, we wanted to search and buy remotely. Laurie helped us with finding and touring properties using video chats. She also arranged to meet with my son and his wife at properties so we could also get their input. Laurie was so good at answering our questions and we never felt pressured by her. However, we did find that the market is moving very fast with multiple offers in some cases, and Laurie never missed a beat and responded very quickly. When we asked for more information about a property, she sent us a beautiful presentation of the subject property and comparable properties that gave us a good market overview. She uses great new technologies that made it easy for us to shop remotely. I have written another review, but it was brief and I just wanted to give more specifics and say that I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the transaction went, especially under the current circumstances. I highly recommend Laurie.
Previous review from Jane H.
I highly recommend Laurie. She was very helpful and goes the extra mile.
Laurie was fantastic. I relocated to Grand Rapids from Oklahoma City during the pandemic. It was tough to travel. Laurie accommodated me with Face time house showings. The market was very hot, but Laurie helped me navigate perfectly. I was able to close on a house exactly in the area I was hoping for. She is knowledgeable, accessible, and is someone you want to represent you!
We worked with Laurie to sell our mom's house after she passed away. This was a unique house with regard to size, design and age. On top of that we had the onset of COVID-19 just as we listed. Laurie did a great job in keeping up the interest and helping us step by step through the sale! We will use her services again!! She made everything very clear and easy.
Laurie was recommended to me by a close friend. This was my first homebuying experience and Laurie made it a very smooth and stress free process for me. Laurie responded to any questions, comments, or concerns in a prompt manner. I would highly recommend her to any homebuyer in West Michigan.
James and Stephanie K.
I can not say enough about how great an experience we had working with Laurie. It was a relocation move which involved a lot more work on the realtor's end but you would have never known. She was very responsive, extremely professional and very trustworthy. We were first time sellers and she was so knowledgeable and walked us through the process. She was able to inform and guide with no pressure and truly let us make the decision we wanted. I know she worked extremely hard to make sure our house sold. We have 5 offers in two days on the market all over asking price. I can tell you she goes above and beyond for her clients. We forgot some items in the house after we moved out and she took them to a relatives for us as we were already moved out of the state. She is an excellent business professional and someone who truly loves what they do and is great at it!
I can't put into words how helpful and amazing Laurie was in helping us find our first home. Laurie not only helped us find exactly what we were looking for, but walked us through the process and went above in beyond in ensuring we closed on time. Thank you Laurie!
Bob and Baiba L.
Laurie was excellent in ever facet of the real estate process. She worked tirelessly in finding us a home that met all our needs. We could not be happier with the experience. Laurie our move across the State enjoyable. We could not have asked for a better Real Estate agent. We highly recommend Laurie.
Laurie has emailed me houses since 2012. My credit wasn't as great and honestly I wasn't as serious as i am now about ownership. I'm glad laurie stuck with me through the years. I told myself laurie will be the realtor i would want to use when it's that time to buy. Laurie helped me buy my first home 9/12/2019. I appreciate the loyalty, hard work and dedication laurie has to offer, and she will do the same for you. ð
How often does a lender call to pay a compliment?!? Our lender went out of his way to call us to compliment Laurie's professionalism, experience, and attention to every aspect of our purchase and closing. Laurie knows how to make the the whole process go smoothly. Laurie was instrumental in our finding and negotiating for our dream house. She was incredibly patient and helpful as my husband and I defined what we wanted. Laurie is knowledgeable, responsive and thoroughly delightful to work with. I highly recommend Laurie Tamburrino.
We are so thankful for Laurie! We moved to Grand Rapids from Indianapolis, IN and had a pretty short window to avoid having to rent for a bit. Thankfully, Laurie dedicated her weekends to showing us so many houses each visit. She listened to what we were looking for, was very knowledgable of the neighborhoods.. like taxes, schools, safety.. and was very honest and reliable throughout this entire process. After closing, which her and Erica from Chicago Title Company made fun and painless, we chatted about how genuine Laurie is and that this process, while stressful due to time, could have been so brutal without her! We would recommend Laurie for any move to the SW Michigan area, including anyone relocating from another state.
Working with Laurie was great! I was refered by a friend and she did not disappoint. You can email her or text her anytime with questions and she is always right on it for you. As a first time homebuyer I wasn't sure what was worth negotiating or not, especially in this crazy market...but Laurie had my back and made sure I got a good deal and I am so happy with the results!
Laurie immediately put me at ease. She helped me pinpoint exactly what type of amenities I wanted in my future home. She answered my inquiries promptly either by phone or text. Laurie was willing to show me as many homes as it took to find the right one for me. She made submitting an offer less traumatizing by breaking down & explaining each option so I could make my best offer to the seller while still keeping within my budget. She always keep a positive outlook,even when I was getting so discouraged about never finding a home. I would highly recommend Laurie for any of your real estate needs.
Laurie did an awesome job walking me through the home buying process. She worked hard to make sure I had the information I needed to make informed decisions, often doing more research on my behalf than I did myself. She was willing to show houses and draw up offers when it was convenient for me. Very easy and pleasant to communicate with - and very accessible. I would highly recommend Laurie for anyone's home buying journey!
Codie and Samantha N.
Laurie is one of the most reliable people we have ever had the pleasure to know. We relocated from Florida to move back home. She did not hesitate to help get us set up and even show us around. She did this even when we still had our house pending on contract in Florida. Laurie gives you everything she has while also paying great attention to you as a buyer. She builds that relationship that ensures you know you will find the house you want. She isn't pushy and wants what's best for the situation you are in. Laurie is also a realist, and she'll give it to you straight. This was beyond helpful when looking at houses and thinking ahead, her experience is unmatched in this market, and is prepared for anything you might face. Without a doubt Laurie is the person I would EVER recommend to anyone relocating or looking for a house. Some would say realtors are a 'dime a dozen.' Well I'd tell ya we found the hundred dollar bill! Thank you Laurie for everything! The Nieder's
I have to say that Laurie Tamburrino was by far the best realtor I have ever had the privilege of working with. I was freshly retired from the military and she not only showed me A LOT homes, but also put me in contact with someone that provided me a much needed fully furnished rental unit, within days of me moving up from Florida. Because of her vast knowledge, I would whole heartedly recommend Laurie to anyone and especially transitioning Military families.
Kyon and Courtney P.
Laurie was excellent, all around! She was extremely knowledgeable and she always kept us informed. Furthermore, her negotiating skills were exceptional. Laurie really helped us throughout the entire process and I highly recommend working with her. She listed our home and was our Buying Agent on our new home. On both sides of the transaction, she always kept us in-the-loop. In addition, she's very personable and truly cares about you and puts your interests first. I highly recommend Laurie as your next Agent.
Previous review from Kyon and Courtney P.
Laurie was a great Realtor! She is extremely knowledgeable about the industry. She's great at negotiating, evaluating homes, and making Buyers - and Sellers - feel comfortable. We just recently closed on the sale of our current home and purchase of our new home ,and we couldn't be more satisfied with her service. She is personable, understanding, responsive, flexible, and willing to do what it takes to make sure her clients are happy. I would definitely recommend using Laurie on your next real estate transaction!
Laurie is excellent. She is personable, professional and very effective. She understood the market and matched her services with my need. She gave me good advice about things to do to make the houses more marketable. She gets results. I have used her to sell two houses and I will definitely use her again in the future.
Matt and Kristen B.
Laurie knew our time frame, what we were looking for, and where; she delivered on all points with fantastic homes to choose from.
Laurie did a great job finding me my first home! She was patient and explained things step by step. She negotiated hard to get what was best for me. I will definitely be using her in any future home sales or purchases.
I was a first time home buyer so naturally, I was unfamiliar with the home buying process. Laurie was extremely help from start to finish. Whenever I didn't understand something, she was right there to make things clear. Whenever I ran into a problem, she stepped in to help. She is down to earth, easy to talk to, and really knows her stuff head to toe. I couldn't of asked for a better realtor!!
Laurie Tamburrino is a true professional in every facet of her job. My situation was a little different then most because I'm an out of state investor, but Laurie was able to provide accurate information on properties and be my eyes and ears from start to finish. She is passionate about what she does and it shows by her unwavering dedication to her customers. I believe, in real estate investing, one of your keys to success and most valuable is your Realtor. Laurie was that key and demonstrated it on daily basis. I've worked with plenty of Realtors over the past few years, but she is in all honesty the best one. I look forward to working with her again in the near future and would hands down recommend her to anyone in the market for primary residence or rental property.
Laurie is a consummate professional! She is courteous, friendly and always responsive. Our buying process was extended several times and Laurie was always patient and concerned for our well-being. She is extremely knowledgeable about local details and always ready to offer helpful suggestions and answer questions, days/nights or weekends. She always made us feel valued and that she had all the time in the world for us. We moved from out of state, and Laurie was extremely helpful with handling the multitude of details this entailed. We feel extremely fortunate to have met and worked with Laurie, and would unhesitatingly recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.
As a first time home buyer, I was nervous but Laurie helped ease my nerves and helped us find exactly what we were looking for in a home and kept us informed every step of the way during our home buying process. I highly recommend her!
Laurie is amazing to work with! She went above and beyond to help me sell my home. She is very hard working, and easy to work with. She is great at communicating with her clients. I would highly recommend her.
My fiancÃ© and I were very nervous buying a house in the very competitive market in which we wanted. We were very nervous that we wouldn't be able to find one that suit our needs and be in the price range that we wanted. Laurie exceeded our expectations and we now have our dream home. Laurie kept us informed through every step in the process and made home buying very easy. We always felt like she was looking out for our best interest all the while making us feel like we were her most important clients. 'There are three types of people in this world; those that make things happen, those that wonder what has happened, and those that watch things happen.' Laurie Tamburrino makes things happen! Thank you Laurie!!!
Peter And Jessica N.
Very happy we had Laurie as our agent. For being first time home buyers she helped guide us during every step of the process. She was friendly, very responsive and has great knowledge regarding the market. She helped us find our perfect home, would highly recommend her!

Just getting ready to buy a new home or moving in to your brand new place? Decorating is probably on your mind. If you recently sold your home or if you've been living in rentals, you've probably been bombarded by the idea of keeping everything neutral. But in your new space, you can be as bold as you want to be. And while you may not want to splash apple red paint up on every wall, there are many ways to make an impact with color that don't go overboard.CouchThe days of the beige couch may...

If you're selling your home and your kitchen is, well, compact, know that you can find ways to achieve big appeal with a little creativity.Bring in the light. Sometimes small kitchens can be dark, making them feel even smaller. But if you remove the curtains from any windows in your small kitchen, it'll let light in and open up the area.

Print Email For many first-time buyers, buying a home can be a scary experience. They know they'll be maintaining or improving a home with little to no maintenance experience, so the solution is to buy a home in perfect condition. So they hire a home inspector to point out all the flaws.The problem is -- no perfect home exists. Air conditioners break, plumbing pipes leak, and roof tiles blow off in the wind.If you're buying a home, start with a reasonable expectation of what home inspectors c...
