Larry and Laura Swinden are incredibly knowledgeable, wise, professional, and personable. They know the market, they know their clients, and they truly work for your best possible outcome and your desires. We have been blessed twice by this team when we got our condo and recently our amazing first home! They made each step simple and attainable and provided lots of needed advice along the way from scheduling and paperwork to possible repairs and neighborhood details. They are flexible and adaptable and are perfect for the ignorant first time home buyer like us or a veteran homeowner. Not only are they excellent agents, but truly excellent people of good character. We are forever thankful!
Who knew finding your dream home was so easy? Laura worked with us on every aspect of the process and made us feel comfortable taking the big leap. We had many factors and desires for our forever home and she was able to narrow it down to a few key choices. Once we were dialed in to a few places is when she really proved her invaluable experience and helped us make the choice. Our family is so happy to have been recommended to contact Swinden homes….big plus also is their fantastic website. I highly recommend checking it out and having Laura help you and your family find your little slice of heaven. Thank you Laura, and I’m letting everyone know about you guys!
Laura recently helped me purchase my home, and she also assisted my elderly mother sell her last house and buy her current one four years ago. She is clearly well established in her profession and I understand why. I did not always make it easy for her to facilitate my offer, contingencies, and final walk through. Looking back, it was a big decision and I did not want anything to go wrong. She never once lost her patience or professionalism with me even when she might have had reason to. Many times, I was comforted by her experience/expertise that came across during what were for me critical junctures; I credit her for the success of my negotiations following the home inspection report. It also came to me that she is truly a kind, decent, hardworking person. I have no regrets about my life-changing purchase and am glad to have gotten to know her better. I recommend her wholly as realtor.

The photography was wonderful. The online ad looked amazing. Laura Swinden went above and beyond by working with the staging of our townhouse, attended the appraisal, followed up for the conclusion of the walk through, and attended the closing. Laura networked us with some helpful trades professionals like carpet cleaning and HVAC when we asked her for assistance. The extended Swinden Team also worked hard and made great contributions to the sales endeavor. We listed on MLS Thursday night, hosted more than a dozen showings through the weekend, received three offers by Monday morning (two over list price), selected the best offer, and signed a contract Monday evening. Easy, Peasy, Lemon, Squeezy!
Laura recommended Jim Hilliard, a general contractor, who completely remodeled our home and did an amazing job. We wanted our home to sell quickly for a good price in a buyer’s market. Her recommendation of Jim and other suggestions positioned our home well in the market for sale. Her attention to detail always insured a solid showing. When repairs were needed after the inspection, Laura had the right contractors who came in and did the job required to secure the close. Laura is more than a realtor. She is the total package from preparing your home for sale to delivering a solid close with the buyer completely satisfied with their purchase. She has it covered from A to Z. We are very thankful for Laura Swinden, a great blessing to us.
Laura was always available when needed. She always made sure we understood the information on the papers we were signing..A truly wonderful and caring person…. very special and a pleasure to work with.
