#1)Laurie Morgan, Homequest Realtor is a person of paramount premium performance!
#2) Over the past 20 years, my husband and I have bought and sold seven houses on the East and West coasts as well as in Hawaii, where we’ve had the good fortune to work with Laurie Morgan. Laurie helped us buy and sell two houses on Oahu – one in Kailua and the other in Kaneohe. My husband and I agree that she is the most thorough and conscientious realtor we’ve ever known. She is attentive to detail and does everything she can to ensure deals close successfully – whether that’s walking the property to explain exactly where easements and encroachments are, meeting tradespeople to ensure necessary repairs are made, or engaging the services of a professional photographer to make properties look their best online and in flyers. She works hard to understand her clients’ needs, and is attentive, professional and extremely knowledgeable about Oahu’s real estate market. We are happy to recommend Laurie without hesitation.

To Whom It May Concern:
Laurie just recently represented us in the sale of a condo in Honolulu. Since we live out of state, we began working with Laurie by telephone. Laurie was immediately impressive as a personable, intelligent, professional & efficient individual. She was approachable & welcoming, but never pushy or overly aggressive. She is honest beyond reproach. She asked all the right questions, so that she had a clear understanding of the property & the property situation. But to say that she just “represented” us or that it was just a sale is an extreme understatement. Instead, she first represented my father (the original owner/seller), then his estate when he passed away, & then me as the heir/new owner. And this sale was incredibly complex, as Laurie worked tirelessly with numerous parties over many, many months before the property could even be ready to be listed. She interacted patiently with all of us (sellers), other real estate agents/brokers, attorneys, representatives of the homeowner’s association, building maintenance personnel, title companies, & court representatives just to ensure that the property could be listed & sold. Throughout that process, she frequently tied up loose ends before we even knew there was a problem. And once it was ready to be listed, she moved quickly to help us price it appropriately & market it well. As a result, we received multiple offers & ultimately a full price offer in a very short period of time on the market.
Laurie is a great communicator, and she always provided us with very useful information at every step of the listing and transaction. She gave us the time that we needed to review it, and she was readily available with additional help and answers to our questions.
Most importantly, Laurie is a Realtor that will make things happen! She is proactively attentive to all of the issues that inevitably arise between the time of listing & the close of escrow, & she is well prepared to handle them with ease. There were no surprises at all. Laurie’s attention to detail was flawless! This helped to keep anxiety levels to a minimum & made the process smooth & pleasurable for all parties, which was especially important to us, since we were off island. We learned quickly that we could easily rely on Laurie for just about anything that needed to be done responsibly & correctly, and we knew that she was taking great care of our needs & interests. There was not a single thing that we would have done differently in retrospect.
We would strongly recommend Laurie for your real estate needs! You will be thrilled to have such a consummate professional & stellar performer on your team! We definitely know where to go when we are ready for our next purchase or sale.
