“From the moment I met Laurel I knew that not only did we have a superior realtor but a friend for life as well. Her knowledge and professionalism was a notch above perfection! Within days of listing our property we went under contract. Our buyers needed to close asap and her team managed to get everything closed in a few short weeks. We were very impressed and will continue to do business with Laurel.”

” This is my second selling experience with Laurel in less than a year and I am blown away at how she ALWAYS goes above and beyond. She knows the market, is always available, professional with other realtors and so accommodating. She held open houses regularly and I was ecstatic with the outcome of the sale, given the current market situation. She is the BEST! I can’t say enough about Laurel – she is over the top!”

“I’ve been buying and selling real estate, both commercial and residential for the past 45 years. As you can imagine, I’ve met a lot of great realtors throughout but none better than Laurel McGarel. Laurel is extremely dedicated to making sure the entire process from A thru Z goes smoothly. She is a true professional giving her all to make sure your real estate experience is an enjoyable one. Laurel truly is the best!”

Kimberly B

“Wow! Laurel made selling our house so easy! She was always available to answer our questions and we had a contract within 3 weeks of putting it on the market and we were offered list price! Our sale was so easy and efficient. Laurel handled every aspect from the comps to quickly putting it on the market all the way to the closing. The photos and drone coverage were beautiful. Her knowledge of the Naples market is extensive and I highly recommend her as an agent. She is a wonderful to work with!!”

Kim B

“Laurel is amazing! She knows the Naples market and does her homework. She found us this house and she handled everything! We closed in less than a month and it has everything we were looking for. She is so responsive and extremely detailed. She doesn’t leave anything out! I couldn’t recommend her more strongly!”

“I sold my home in IL faster than I expected and had 1 weekend to find a new home in FL. Laurel sent my daughters and I a few properties a day for 2 weeks before our visit to get a feel for what we wanted to see. She showed us 8 properties in 1 day – and all were spot on what we’d consider buying and in our price range. My teenage daughters who are impressed with no one – were both impressed with her (as was I). In a very active market (places were selling same day), Laurel ensured we submitted a winning bid! And then worked with the mortgage broker and insurance agent to get us closed on time with no pain.”

Laurel McGarel is the best of the best! She went above and beyond every aspect of this real estate process. Both my husband and I were thoroughly impressed with her attention to detail, responsiveness, expertise and professionalism. She made buying a new home in an alternate state easy and was an absolute pleasure to work with. We’ll definitely use her again and recommend her to any family and/or friends looking to be our future neighbors.

We have used Laurel when purchasing and selling property. She made the transactions so easy. Most recently, we sold a home. The home sold in 10 days and from start to finish the entire transaction took less than 5 weeks. It was the easiest and fastest close we have ever been through. I highly recommend Laurel

Bob & Lindsey B.

Laurel is a wonderful realtor. We had a very tough situation, and she was amazing throughout the process. If you desire a realtor that goes the extra mile, and walks the talk I suggest working with her. Our deal was close to falling apart on several occasions because of seller issues but she stepped in to nurture the deal over the finish line. We highly recommend working with her for any real estate needs.

Laurel was exceptional in every way. Responsive, knowledgeable, always willing to go above and beyond. I was referred to Laurel by a friend and am so grateful. We found the perfect home for our family thanks to her and we are thrilled!

Laurel is amazing!! I can’t recommend her more strongly. I met her through a friend who was also looking in Naples. Laurel is professional, punctual, and ALWAYS available. She works so hard to find the perfect fit. Not only is she diligent, she is fun to be with and always positive. I found a fabulous house for my family and Laurel handled EVERY detail. She is amazing and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to anyone!

Chuck & Tonya B.

Top notch in every respect. Laurel was always 5 moves ahead of the process and that gave us confidence to make quick decisions but with sound judgment. We purchased our Naples Home – sight unseen- since we live in Illinois. Her knowledge of everything we needed to know was a priceless asset. I highly recommend Laurel to anybody who needs a professional, understanding, and cordial Real Estate professional.

Bill & Shelley H.

Laurel came to us as a referral and after working with her I can see why she comes so highly recommended. She is knowledgeable, has valuable experience and most importantly her response time is faster than we have ever seen . In this market having your finger on the pulse is critical. For example, if we liked a property she would call us within minutes and out the door for a pre showing. Her response time, being readily available and her communication skills is what got us our home. Laurel not only got us to a quick close but she continued to help us after and went above and beyond what realtors do. We plan on giving her lots of referrals because we know she will get the job done every single time. We think she is amazing!

Cameron & Stacy B.

Laurel is THE best! As first time home owners, my husband and I were overwhelmed at first especially deciding to buy a home during this busy demanding current market. Laurel kept us calm and on track and was so easy to work with. She made our first experience buying a home exciting and not stressful. We had an offer accepted on the first home we looked at. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get it insured with the conditions of the roof. Laurel did a fantastic job by keeping our heads up and finding us our current home. With a 2 year old roof in the same neighborhood as the first home, she found us our perfect, starter home. We are so excited!! We would recommend Laurel to ANYONE and EVERYONE, and we will definitely be using Laurel in the future!!

Laurel is the consummate professional…she is knowledgeable, helpful, expedient, resourceful, responsive…and a very happy, friendly person who was there when I needed her…helping me through my anxiety, excitement and constant questions. She found my beautiful new home the first day and stayed by my side helping me with the mortgage experience, finding furniture locations, working with the sellers, appraisals and inspections…she even picked me up for closing. It was my first experience buying a home so far away…alone! She made the transition a lovely experience. Thank you Laurel…and Jack!

We met Laurel and her husband while having dinner in Naples. It was a perfect scenario as we were looking to make an offer on a condo in The Glades and had not yet spoken to a realtor. After a few minutes of talking, we found out she was a realtor, indeed. Perfect timing. We made an offer that was painless and swift. The closing ultimately required having the schedule pushed up by nearly two weeks, and without any hesitation, she diligently worked with all parties involved, to get the property transferred in a more than timely manner. We are so grateful, and thanks to her, and her strong work ethic, our dreams have come true, and we have secured our foothold here in SW Florida.

Jennifer M.

“Growing up in Downers Grove, winters always brought the joy of first snowfall and the simultaneous desire to escape to Florida. Thanks to Laurel, the call to head south is now a reality. Due to her relentless hustle and ability to spot opportunity, we are happy to have found a coveted gulf access home in Naples. We gave her a needle in a haystack type mission (no HOA, great neighborhood, close to town, gulf access) and she delivered. Throughout the entire buying process, we always felt she was committed to helping us find the perfect fit. Even after the sale, she made sure to provide us with all the local contacts needed to be able to arrive day one ready to sit poolside. Having someone that spoke our Chicago language with all the needed Florida contacts to get the job done, made all the difference. We are already turning to Laurel to find seaside gems for our friends!”

Laurel was a pleasure to work with. From the moment we contacted her she worked extremely hard for us and always had our best interests in mind. We had a small window of time to find a house and she cleared her schedule to help us. We could not have found a better realtor and would recommend her to anyone looking for their perfect home.

There isn’t enough words to describe what an amazing, driven, dedicated, and caring person Laurel is; not only as a person, but as a professional. I always say that in life you are either a driver or a passenger. She is a driver in a convoy of her own personal army. LOL… I have personally been in the real estate business in the past and you cannot find a more dedicated agent than her. I met her in a restaurant, she found places for me to see the next day. I made an offer in 24 hours and she had it wrapped in a bow and closed in around 15 days. A true blessing!!! I would recommend her any day of the week; 7 days a week; 365 days a year! She gets it done with a smile and charisma like no other! No need to look any further!
