A Home Versus a Place to Live
A house is just a building; however, a home is where memories are created and individuals find comfort and refuge from a crazy world. When you walk through the door of your home, it should be that island away from everything which brings you comfort, joy, and a positive vibe.
Different by Intention
We built our partnership using a unique and different mindset, one that sees things through our client’s perspective. Anyone can show you a property, however, we take the time to learn about you personally so we can present you with the ideal lifestyle choices you are seeking.
If you are selling, we will work to bring you qualified buyers, who want the lifestyle your dwelling presents.
Get to Know Us
So, you have decided to sell or buy, which was the first of two major decisions you had to work through. The second is choosing real estate agent who will resonate with your unique needs, personality, and lifestyle choices. You will find that our dedication to meeting your dreams and desires is not only our mission, it’s our passion.
We appreciate and welcome the opportunity to help you achieve your real estate needs.
We speak English, French and Spanish.
"Laurie Richter Spector is a competent, responsive and trustworthy professional. We are glad that we have become her customers. She did an excellent job. This was our first purchase, we did not know much and she helped, supported and prompted us. She was constantly in touch with us. Even after closing date. Laurie was answering our emails and text at once. All problems were solved quickly. Therefore, our purchase was completed without delay. We were comfortable and we recommend Laurie as a wonderful realtor."
-Irina and Miroslav, Client
"Guys - just a quick note on Laurie. I did not know her before this deal, only what a fellow investor who is a little further down the road told me - “she is cool, also a lawyer and effective” … something like that anyhow. True to form that is what I got. Calm, sensible advice and guidance. Energy when needed, but no pushing just good judgement. Thanks to her I think we opened spot-on with our bid, stayed cool throughout the negotiation and walked away with a sweet deal (in BTW and as you know a quite competitive market). But there is more. Laurie is a great resource on the broader things that you’ll need if you walk this path, like attorneys, accountants, property managers, insurance guys, contractors … the whole team. If you are lucky enough to be focussed around the Fort Lauderdale area and need the A-team you need Laurie on your side. Good luck, Andrew"
-Andrew Willans, Client
"Laurie is very helpful and knowledgeable and a very genuine person. Highly recommend."
-Nik Chaney, Client
"This was my 5th home and it was certainly the most smoothest transaction Ive experienced. Laurie knew I was going crazy staying in hotel waiting to close. Laurie singlehandedly got the sellers, listing agent, lender, title company , and insurance people to expedite the process and got me closed two weeks earlier than the original closing date. I only visited the property for the appraisal and the walk through. Laurie took care of the rest. After closing I have heard from Laurie three or four times. She says she is just checking in to see if everything is ok. Thats service to me. Highly recommend Laurie if you want an experienced, intelligent, motivated compassionate and respectful agent. Last but not least. Laurie is an agent that picks up the phone when you call her. She will email or text you back within seconds. That something I was never accustomed to"
-Bryan Wolfe, Other
"Laurie did a great job getting me in to see homes in a timely manner. She is a local who knows the area and was able to negotiate a good deal for me. I would highly recommend this realtor who was available 24/7 to take my calls and address my concerns."
