"We hired Laura Voicu (Keller Williams Reality) to sell our family home. After a year of no movement with another realtor we felt we had to make a change. Laura met with us and outlined her sales strategy. We were impressed with her knowledge, efficiency and positive attitude.  Laura said she would sell our home and she did, in several weeks we had a buyer and could move on to searching for a new home.  We could not recommend her enough". (Kimberley & Kirk, 2015)
 
"Well organized, reliable, efficient, professionnal, give update on a timely basis, easy to reach (by email or telephone)
Superbement organisé, fiable, efficace, professionnelle, mise à jour régulière de l'état de la vente, facile à rejoindre (courriel ou téléphone)." (Luc & Micheline, 2015)
 
"It seems unfair that words cannot express enough how pleased we are with Laura Voicu's unwavering dedication and service. Laura worked incredibly hard for us and deserves so much credit! We recommend her to anyone who wants an agent who actually listens to your needs and gets results. So many agents just sit back and wait for a phone call... Not Laura! She was reassuring, confident, professional and fantastic with her communication. In many instances, she went above and beyond the call of duty (we had showing requests when we were out of town so Laura actually went to our house to spruce it up for us). She's awesome and I am so happy she sold our house! Thank you Laura! We owe you so much!" (Heather & Bryan, 2015)
 

"Dear Laura, I want to thank you for all the effort and hard work you put forth into selling my home.  I greatly appreciated the awesome online listing which included beautiful pictures of my home.  I enjoyed all the prompt updates you sent me following potential buyer’s visits.  Your words of encouragement when I felt disappointed put me at ease and renewed my faith in your commitment.  Your continued dedication to sell my home did not go unnoticed.  Laura, you were given a difficult task of selling my house during a very slow market.  It resulted in a positive outcome and I thank you for making the negotiating process a breeze. I would highly recommend Laura Voicu from Keller Williams to anyone who needs a kind, considerate, dedicated and professional realtor." (Sylvie, 2015).

“Referred to us by family, Laura could not have come more highly recommended. This was not our first time selling/buying a home but it was the first time having Laura as our agent and what a difference having a great agent is. Laura’s communication skills are excellent. She answered all questions promptly and we never had to ask for an answer twice. Laura was also pro-active in the selling/buying of our home. Often following up or getting feedback with all potential buyers even before we have to ask.  We were not her only clients but we were pleasantly surprised that she was able to make us feel as if we were.” (Kristina and Jason, 2015).

 

"You are the best Realstate agent I ever met.Your dedication,perseverance,politeness are outstanding and my wife Lise and myself  we admire you and we will have no problem to recommend you to anybody trying to sell their home or to buy a house  any time and any where. We say  Thank you to you a thousand times and more." (Jean and Lise, 2015).

"I was in dilemma selecting a realtor, but finally I did select her because she was reliable, honest, dependable and trustworthy to me. In fact, I was right, she proved it. She is a person easy to deal with. Also, she is very easy reachable; when ever I left message for her, she responded immediately. During our contract period, she tried her best to give us peace of mind. She never pushed or tricked us for quick sale. Though, on her listing she also has bigger houses for big commission; but she never differentiate our house by showing lower priority even making low commission. She worked continuously, unless until she was able to sold our house during extreme winter season by respecting our expected closing date. I strongly recommend other to consider her as their realtor." (Imtiaz 2015).

"I would like to commend Laura for the efficient and totally professional manner in which she and her staff processed the sale of my house.  The speed with which the property was sold is testimony to Laura's in-depth research of competitive listings in the area, the proper listing price for my house and her contact network.  I can't thank her enough for the excellent results she has provided me through her hard and dedicated work ethic."  (Bill Newcombe, 2015).

 

"You have made the sale of the home a very enjoyable and exciting experience. Laura, it is an honour to have had you on team. You have raised the bar on professioanlism in the industry. I sincerely thank you for sharing your years of experience with me." (Ron N, 2014).

“We tried to sell our house with another agent but failed to close the Sale Contract due to various reasons last year. Considering the unique situation of our house, the largest house with an indoor pool in our neighborhood, we understood we had to engage someone who was willing to invest his/her time to learn every aspect of our house and market it in a very proactive way. After noticing Laura had put up a SOLD sign on the front yard of our neighbour's house within a month, we approached Laura to be our agent this March. Even though it had been a tough year for the real estate market, Laura never gave up and worked hard to get our house sold in 9 months. As soon as our house was sold, she also helped buying our next property within two weeks. She ensured a smooth transition between the two closing dates and negotiated the purchase price that met our expectation. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Laura and highly recommend her service to anyone who’d like sell or buy their house.’ (Angela and David, 2014).

 

"My husband and I were sure we could sell our house on our own but after a few months, visits dwindled down and we were desperate. Laura came in to the rescue and showed us how she could help. She was patient and understanding but mostly she really listened to our concerns and respected our decisions. The thing we appreciated the most is that she always gave us feedback after each prospective buyer's visit and kept in contact in between. In this market, as owners, we need to know what buyers think about our property. We feel we made the best decision by listing with Laura and would strongly recommend her services." (Nathalie and Melvin K. 2014).

"Laura is an excellent resource and trusted representative! Her expertise and knowledge of the industry helped navigate my transactions efficiently and to my benefit.  As a single parent and first time home buyer, Laura took the time to assess my needs; she was spot on, and also provided valuable peripheral recommendations.  A true testament to her dedication was how she handled several curve balls, and went to bat on my behalf when issues arose from the side of the seller at the 11th hour.  I would have been lost without her.  I am very grateful I had such a tenacious and hard working person in my corner.  Laura made me feel like I was important and not just another client. Peers in her line of work acknowledge that she is the best, and I have already recommended Laura to several people.  I will trust her again in the future when I am ready to transition from buyer to seller."  (D.Giles 2014).

"Laura promised to deliver in obtaining a good purchase price and a quick sale, this indeed occurred. She has a very professional and positive approach. She is confident in what she came do and kept us informed on a daily basis. She communicated each and every time the house was shown and provided feedback Her selling price was bang on and resulted in a sale within a few days. What a great relief and great results." (Yvette and Chris, 2014).

"Laura, thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to the selling of our home!!  Your professionalism and knowledge of the market in our area was critical.  I have recommended and will continue to recommend you to all of our family and friends.  You are awesome … great job!!", K.Wilson (2014)

"Laura Voicu was very highly recommended to me by a friend.  She totally exceeded expectations.  I wish more realtors were like her.  From our first meeting, it was very obvious that Laura was very experienced in the real estate market.  She recommended things I should do to the house to make it more marketable and recommended what I should list my house at to sell quickly.  Both recomendations were spot on!  I would highly recommend Laura to anyone selling a home in Ottawa."  R. H. Sekaly (2014)

"It was a pleasure working with you! We were extremely pleased with Laura’s services for the sale of our house : very professional, always positive and available. Our house sold in less than a week! Her services during the search for a new home were also exemplary. We would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family." Louise & Jean-Pierre 2014

“Notre maison était à vendre pendant plusieurs mois sans succès. Laura a communiqué avec nous régulièrement durant ce processus pour nous encourager. Nous avons  finalement cédé à son charme. 5 jours suivant la signature du contrat, nous avons une offre et vendu quelques jours suivant.  Laura a été très efficace, professionnelle et dévouée. Nous recommandons Laura sans aucune hésitation. Merci Laura, tu es une pro!”  Gaston, Nicole et Ian, 2014

“I was very pleased with Laura! I had another agent before and it just didn’t work. I wasn’t seeing any kind of results. Laura was very thorough, energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and level headed. She was also instrumental in the purchase my new condo. It shows that she loves what she does and she is great at it!” Gerry, 2014

“I had previously tried to sell my house both privately and with other agents but with no success. Then I met Laura. Right from the start I knew I made the right decision to engage her as my agent. She was very professional, knowledgeable and patient. She presented a very unique marketing approach of selling my house that not many agents follow nowadays. All of this resulted in sale of my house in just 4 days after it was listed. Not only this, she was instrumental in helping me buying my next property, providing a lot of good advice and tips on how to approach the process. I am very grateful to Laura for her exquisite service and highly recommend her to anyone who has difficulties selling or buying their house.” Yevgeniy, 2014

“We enjoyed working with Laura on the purchase of our home. We appreciated her excellent client service and professionalism. We found her to be down to earth and extremely knowledgeable and organized, yet warm and friendly at the same time. She helped us with every step of the process, at the time when we lost hope on buying anything. Many thanks, Laura!” Sanda, 2014

"Laura Voicu is a very professional realtor with extensive knowledge of the real estate market.  When Laura approached me to help sell my property, my house had been on the market for over six months without any result.  She committed to work very hard in looking for and bringing the right type of potential buyers.  Laura delivered very well on her commitment.  Despite the fact that my property was in a difficult market segment and that it was during a harsh winter, Laura was able to get the property sold in short order.  She was also instrumental and did a superb job in helping me find a new property.  She understood very well what I was looking for and proposed properties that suited my needs and lifestyle.  She was perceptive of my requirements, provided excellent advice and was genuinely looking for my interest.  Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Laura as an agent to any buyer or seller." Riad, 2014

" After our home being on the market from October to December 2013, we received a phone call from Laura introducing herself to us and asking why our home had not sold and why it had been removed from the market. We explained to her the situation. She then offered her services and said she could sell our house for us. After a break over the Christmas holidays, we interviewed three real estate agents from different companies, and Laura was our choice. She was dynamic, full of energy, very organized, clear and precise in her explanations, and had a positive attitude that made you feel good about having her as your realtor. Within 10 days we received an offer at full asking price. We could not be more pleased with the outcome.So if you want the job done, call Laura Voicu today! " Brigitte  & Ted, 2014

 

"After being on the market for over 5 months, we were getting discouraged and doubted that we were ever going to receive an offer. Laura came into our lives with her positive attitude and her professional dignity. Her in-depth knowledge of the Ottawa market, her enthusiasm and all of the effort that she put into the sale definitely paid off. The home was sold in less than 2 weeks and we got 102% of the asking price! We will not hesitate to refer her to all our family and friends! Thank you for all your help! " (Adrian and Ligia, 2013).

 
" After an unsuccessful experience with another Real Estate company and after that listing was done, Laura came to our door baffled as to why our place didn't sell after 4 months on the market.  We wanted to take a break before going through this again, but still wanted to sell our house.  So, when we were ready we called Laura back and she came "prepared" and had done her homework.  She's a straight up lady and she didn't colour coat what the reality of the market was.  So, low and behold, after all the paperwork and photos, 1st showing, yes "FIRST SHOWING" our house sold.  Then it was our turn to look for a house.  She picked us up (at scheduled time), and we saw 3 houses.  We then made an offer on one....she gave us her opinion as to the fair price to offer, she assisted at the home's inspection taking notes and came back to us with an amendment to our original offer we had made and are now proud owners of this home.  She's a no nonsense agent and works for YOU, the client.  We would highly recommend Laura to anyone.  It was truly and pleasure and she made things seem so easy for us, as it is a stressful process when selling and buying a home.  Thanks Laura" (Gisèle & Laurier M, 2013).

 

"After spending many months trying to sell our home privately, Laura Voicu successfully demonstrated her tenaciousness to get things done.  Flat home prices and fewer buyers, she encouraged us to trust her strategies and commitment to sell our home within a very short timeframe.  We are thrilled to finally be ‘Sold’ and would encourage anyone out there to trust Laura Voicu.  Engage her to sell your home - we are glad we did!  Thanks Laura! " Diane and Jeff D, 2013

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Laura Voicu and her team at Royal Lepage Performance Realty.  Laura had initially contacted me after we had been trying unsuccessfully to sell our home on Grapevine. Laura tried initially to convince me that she could sell my home. Of course there are no guarantees and I knew that and I probably gave her a very hard time because I was not a believer that she could do it.  I decided to list my home with Laura as our family situation was such that our home needed to be sold as we were expecting another child and needed more space.  I told Laura I would give her 30 days to sell my home.  Both my husband and I were very skeptical that she could do it.  To our surprise she got the job done! Our house sold in less than 30 days and very near our asking price. We are very happy to have met Laura and to have worked with her on the sale and consequently the purchase of our new home. All of the team members as well were a pleasure to deal with and very professional.  I would highly recommend Laura to anyone who wants to work with someone who is professional and takes their profession seriously. Well done Laura and thank you very much!” (Kathy and Michel 2013).

"It was a true pleasure working with Laura on the sale of our home.  She is professional, confident and determined in her work.  Despite some difficulties encountered with the sale of our home, she persevered and overcame the obstacles in our way.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone." (Craig and Jenn F, 2013).

“We had our house on the market with Comfree for about 2 months when Laura called us and wanted to tell us how she could sell our house. She was the only Real Estate agent who approached us. As soon as we met her we instantly like her. She was professional, friendly and confident. Within one day of listing us, we had a steady flow of showings. Laura called us, encouraged us and emailed us whenever we had a question or concern. We had one major hurdle to overcome and because of that we felt we would never sell, but Laura assured us that this would not stop her from selling our house. She always stayed positive. Within three weeks our house was sold with the price we wanted. We would highly recommend Laura to anyone who needs a good agent. She goes beyond and gets the job done. Thank you Laura for making a stressful situation better and doing what you do so well.”  Ron and Valerie C, 2013

“After listing our house with two different agents, our house remained unsold. We were disappointed and frustrated to say the least. Laura contacted us one evening, having noticed our situation. She proposed a meeting the next day and promised an analysis of our house with comparables and an overall market analysis. We were incredibly impressed when she came over, having done a thorough job of finding comparables and identifying an accurate price point for our home. None of the other agents we had interviewed or used had done such an analysis. We signed up with Laura. Whereas other agents at this point would sit back and wait for calls to come in, Laura went knocking on doors and made many calls. The result was visits to our house by individuals who were seriously interested, and not just the usual “just looking” crowd we had been used to. After many months on the market with little activity prior to signing up with Laura, she managed to have our house sold within a month or so. It was a real delight working with her as our agent and we highly recommend her services.”  Corinne P. 2013

 

"What a refreshing experience! We have had many real estate agents in our time. This most recent purchase and sale we had considered acting on our own but the market conditions are such that this did not make sense. Then Laura came along. We had never met a more honest and forthright agent. Laura always kept us informed, listened to what we had to say and told us the facts. When we decided to sell, she was the obvious choice. She actually found the buyer!!! When it was time to buy, Laura helped us find our dream home. We would not hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone. An agent that provides true value added service!" (Gordon and Susan S, 2013).

 

"Your courtesy and professionalism is appreciated and has most definitely earned you my highest recommendations. It has been a pleasure working with you to sell our property" (Chris F, 2013).

 

"Steve and I would like to thank you for your “outstanding” work in the sale of our home.  Your amazing attention to detail and your knowledge of the “tough” retail environment show that you are an expert in your field. We still cannot get over the effort that you went through for us!  We would recommend you to anyone who really wants to work with a hard working professional agent  who is serious about getting the “job done” and most important who is honest and treats the customer like they are number #1 . Thank you so much Laura! You are the best!" (Sally and Steve V., 2013).

"Prior to meeting Laura, we had our house for sale for 4 months with very few visits no offers, and we were getting very discouraged about the whole situation.  Since our contract was ending with our realtor, we decided to take a break.  A few days later, Laura gave us a call, and we agreed to meet with her and discuss what she could do for us.  She has a very impressive track record, and after meeting with her we were very impressed with how she presented herself, she was very driven, very motivated, she had a very precise plan of action. She seemed really excited about selling our house.
It was tougher on everyone because of our previous experience.  But Laura was always very positive,  and she was always there to give us the encouragement that we needed. It didn’t take long, we were getting one or two visits a day, it was pretty obvious she was doing a very good job promoting our property. She brought a professional photographer and home stager to make our house more appealing. It took a little time to get an offer since our house needed a bit of TLC, but not as long as we thought.  After the sale of our house, only about a week went by, and Laura had found us the perfect home for our family!  Laura, we are so grateful that you found us! Thank you so much for everything you have done for us!"
(Rejean & Louise, 2013).

"I'm still settling in to the new home and just wanted to send you a note to let you know how glad I am that you were my Real Estate Agent.
So far the new home is very suited to our needs and I knew that you would find us a good place to live.Your excellent ability to listen to and understand our needs gave me the confidence to follow through. I most especially appreciate your prompt responses to all my questions and the reference that you provided for our selling agent in another province.
You are a well seasoned professional, and your intellegence combined with your empathic abilities helped to significantly reduce the stress of buying and selling a home. You embodied the mottos of Royal Lepage - in particular, integrity, honesty, caring and respect
Thank you so much for your help and encouragement. I recommend you to all who endeavor to purchase or sell a home."
(Christine S., 2012).

"We had been saddled into a stressful situation in which we needed to sell our home in a short period of time. Laura reviewed our circumstances in a methodical way and she proposed a comprehensive marketing plan designed on gaining the "demand" traffic that we sorely needed. She consistently kept in touch with us throughout the process and provided some great insight on the existing housing market. In the end, we received an offer and sold our house within 10 days which was due to her hard work and guidance! We would pleased to recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling - she is worth every penny!" (Holly & Giovani",2012).

 

"After an unsuccessful attempt to sell my house through Grapevine Marketing, I listed it with Laura. The same day I called her she came prepared with market analysis, and ready for action. She gave me great advice about the pricing and preparing the house for showings, her photographer took wonderful pictures, and in only 5 days I had an offer at 99.57% of the asking price! 
Laura is a go-getter, a talented sales professional, and a pleasure to deal with. Her level of service is extraordinary; I wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone who wants to sell quickly and painlessly for the right price."
(Maya M, 2012). 

"Thank you very much Laura for all the work you've done for me and my brother! I didn't know what to expect when I started looking for a condo but you've exceeded all my expectations and have been extremely professional and fully honest throughout this entire experience! I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends that may seek future housing as you are probably one of the best agents in town! Again, thank you so much!" Srdjan B.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 "Laura's energy, enthusiasm and positive thinking produced results; my house sold in 13 days. She was my best advocate and I am thankful for her personal approach and understanding" (Colette L, 2012).  (Colette, 2012)"

"We engaged Laura Voicu to help us to sell out home.  During the selling process we found her very personable,  helpful,  dedicated and knowledgeable about the Ottawa housing market.  She kept in touch with us,  arranged the marketing of our house to show it in the best light to the potential buyers,  and skilfully negotiated the price.  Working with Laura Voicu has been a good experience,  and we would like to highly recommend her service to anyone who is planning buy or sell a property in Ottawa area. (Czeslaw F, 2012).

"Thank you so much for your persistance in wanting to list and sell my house. I had it on Grapevine over two months with very little action before deciding to give you the listing..within two weeks, my house was sold. I quickly realised that your wanting to list my house was not just a sale's pitch.  You proved it by doing the necessary leg work, telephone calls and adverstissement needed to let other agents know about it as soon as possible.   I am so grateful!

Your determination, advice on home staging, feedback from other agents, availability and keeping a very close contact with me proved that you not only enjoy your work but you give it your 100 percent. Another big plus for you is your very pleasant smile. I will strongly recommend you to friends and neighbours.  Keep up the good work!" (Lucille L, 2012).

"Laura was wonderful. Laura was patient, supportive and understanding. When working with her, you soon realize that she is totally on your side and working for your best interests. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and genuinely cares about what you want. We were very lucky to have her as our real estate agent, and we would thoroughly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy a home in the Ottawa area" (Laurel B., 2011).

"..Without Laura Voicu I could not have made it through, her support, courage and loyalty made it possible. She was there when I really needed her professional advice.

I will never forget this woman, a champion of what is right, her ever present help dried my tears; I will treasure her devotion and support forever. An outstanding planner with foresight, she is my inspiration...

I would recommend (if I had the opportunity) Laura to President Barack Obama of the United States, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and any leader in the world." (Solomon O., 2009).
