What people say...

"Laurel Jonas was a joy to work with! She’s knowledgeable and personable. She worked closely with me and kept me informed! I would recommend Laurel Jonas without reservation for the sale of your home, she will do it quickly and painlessly!"

"Laurel Jonas is professional, honest, and successful. You can trust that Laurel Jonas will be a strong advocate for your real estate transactions."

Erik Engdahl



"Laurel knocked our socks off with her consistent and thoughtful communication with us as we were relocating from CA. She reached out to us on a regular basis and even brought us a “welcome to Idaho” gift when we got to town. Before we decided to purchase a home, Laurel went the extra mile and helped us find a condo to rent. There is no way we would have ever used a different realtor when it was time to buy a house.

We knew that Laurel had our best interest in mind every step of the way! We felt cared for and protected throughout the whole home buying process.

We love Laurel and consider her not only our realtor, but a friend.

“Laurel is wonderful! She is a fantastic realtor because she is professional, personable and makes fantastic cookies! Laurel will work hard to make sure your house sells for top dollar! Every time I see her, it feels like visiting family! You won’t be disappointed!”
Jodi S.


“We have bought 3 properties and sold 1 through Laurel. She is fast to respond, creative in ways to incentivize buyers and very helpful throughout the process. She is fantastic with building and keeping positive relationships. We recommend Laurel to anyone and everyone who we know is looking to buy or sell. When we look at the pictures that other realtors post of houses they are trying to sell we realize how much more time and effort our realtor puts in to the process.”
Lee S.


“We have land to sell in Phoenix, and someone recommended Laurel to us. We couldn’t be happier because we have found her to be very well experienced in her field. Also she never makes us feel we are a bother with all our questions!! She is very personable, upbeat and truly nice!!! In my opinion, you couldn’t have a realtor that works harder for her clients, and we are thankful that we chose her!!”
Johnita J.


“Laurel helped me find my first home and also helped me sell it for a profit 18 months later. She is amazing to work with!! Always prompt to respond, very educated on the market, great at photographing and pricing your property for selling. I plan to work with her again to purchase my next home.”
Sarah T.


“I worked with Laurel a little over 6 years ago to purchase my home in Tempe. I can’t say enough nice things about her. She was professional, attentive, punctual, and just a really nice person. We saw a bunch of homes in the area where I was looking, and despite me being picky and on a very limited budget, we were able to find something perfect.

She has even helped me out with some other needs, like when I thought about moving and renting my house a few years ago, and came out and met with my wife and I when we were talking about moving last year.

I will definitely use her again in the future!”
Alex R.



“Laurel is knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to work with. She takes all difficulty and challenges in buying a home and makes them as simple as possible.”
Andrew P.


“Laurel exuded professionalism and was extremely helpful in our house search. Even though she was based out of the southeast valley, she setup and provided service in the north central Phoenix area. We found the perfect house after a couple of weeks, and Laurel helped us get through the process quickly especially since it was a short sale home, going to foreclosure soon after.”
Robert J.


“We had the pleasure of working with Laurel three times: to sell my condo, to sell my husband’s house, and to buy our first house together after we got married. She always had our best interests in mind. Each transaction was seamless and efficient because of her great attention to detail. She was in constant communication with us via phone and email.

Laurel has stayed in touch over the years. She really has a personalized touch with her clients. She sent us a lovely gift when our baby was born and periodically leaves cute token gifts throughout the year. My favorite one was a ketchup/mustard/relish set for Memorial Day BBQs.

If you want a positive and productive house buying/selling experience, go with Laurel. She’s the realtor for you!”
Desiree O.


“Laurel helped us find our new home, and was irreplaceable through every single step. While searching Laurel helped us find houses easily with an online portal, was quick to set up viewings when we asked last minute and was open and honest when viewing the houses, pointing out good and bad things we hadn’t noticed ourselves. Every time we needed paperwork, from pre-qualifying to closing, Laurel was already prepared. She co-ordinated with the Title company, mortgage broker, and Seller agent throughout and kept us up to speed with what needed to be done and by when, I didn’t need to worry about missing anything. Laurel had a list of recommendations for inspectors, brokers, title agencies, home warranty companies etc, in case we didn’t have any in mind yet. She also handled all of the scheduling and details whenever anyone needed it. When we saw a house listed that we thought might be amazing, but we were worried we would miss the opportunity. Laurel scheduled the viewing for the same day, and had a pre-qualifying form from the mortgage broker ready when we arrived, just in case we wanted to put an offer in, as the viewing was after business hours. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laurel to friends and family and she will be my first call if we need to buy or sell a home in the future.”
Rachael P.


“Laurel is an outstanding agent. She has assisted with two home sales. Both times the first day the houses were listed they had three to four bids submitted. Both houses from listing to title closure took less than 50 days. She alleviated a lot of the stress that could come from selling a home. We could not have achieved the success without her guidance.”
Bruce W.


“Laurel is a wonderful realtor. She took time to listen to us and find us our new home. She has been very knowledgeable about the current market for selling our old home. Even had contacts to help finish preparing our home for sale. Laurel is very prompt to respond to any concerns. ”
Sheryl D.


“I am an investor who bought 4 houses to rent in San Tan Valley. I was able to do this from 3 states away without having to come to Arizona, with Laurel’s help. I had started with another realtor, who, while friendly at first, wanted assurance that I wasn’t wasting his time. Laurel gave me internet access to peruse listings and when I found something in which I was interested, she would cheerfully videotape a tour of the house for me. She is genuinely friendly and easy to work with, and presented my offers quickly in what was a very competitive market. She got the job done. When it comes time to sell, I won’t even consider anyone except Laurel.”
Paul U.


“We used Laurel for the sale of two of our homes and a purchase of one. We highly recommend her. She is professional, responds with answers and feedback quickly. She offers a staging consult that really helps sell your home. Professional photos of your home were unbelievable and above and beyond. She knows what it takes and she fights for you. If you want your house sold quickly, hire Laurel and do what she says. We sold our last home in 3 days!!! ”
Ryan and Melissa L.



“Laurel is the best to work with! She was super responsive, very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone and if I hadn’t moved out of state, I would use her again!”
Tyler and Claire M.


“Laurel helped us navigate the sale and purchase of our homes. It is an overwhelming process but Laurel ensures you’re comfortable at each step. She never pressures and offers honest feedback. Buying a home is emotional but I felt confident because I trusted Laurel’s expertise.”
Alicia and Jeff S.


“Laurel is the nicest person to work with and very professional. She gets things done quickly and always there when you need her. Five years ago she helped me buy the home and now she helped me sell it. When I buy another home I will use her services and I recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell a home or any other property.”
Earnesto Z.


“Laurel is one amazing person! 5 years ago she helped us find a home that we loved. We liked her so much we went to her to sell the house. The process was smooth and quick. It is easy to communicate with her and I consider her a friend after everything.”
Celia M.

She will support you 1000% in any decision you make. The selling of my house was one heck of a roller coaster ride and she was there for me in every way possible until there was success which turned out even better in my favor!!!!!! She was my rock!! I highly recommend her to anyone and if you do not choose her…..you are crazy!!!!!!"
Nichole C.


"Laurel (Nielson) was a pleasure to work with. She is very informed as to the housing inventory as well as current values. Laurel keeps you informed, takes whatever time is needed to explain things if needed. Laurel was a pleasure to work with, I would highly recommend her for any realtor needs. I have worked with 6 realtors in my life, Laurel has been the best by far. (Retired Law Enforcement)"
Larry L.


"I greatly appreciated the patience and assistance Laurel provided in my search for my first home. I appreciated how Laurel worked with my work schedule when viewing houses. Laurel was very helpful in providing me with the information I needed to help in my decision making process. When closing my house, Laurel kept in close contact with the processing of my loan and this was helpful to my loan closing early. I am grateful for her help during this hectic process."
Tiffany R.


"Laurel was an amazing help to us! She was actually our third realtor. Our first realtor we had was a little too unresponsive. So we decided to find another one. Our second realtor seemed to be the same. At that point I began to wonder if all realtors were this way. I first called Laurel because she was the listing agent of a house we were interested in buying. She was very helpful and asked if she could send us a list of similar homes in the area. Within 15 minutes of giving her my email, I had a thorough list of similar homes for sale. Fast. That’s when we decided to have her be our realtor. She did not disappoint!
She had that same urgency the entire time she worked for us. She was patient and not pushy at all, yet at the same time I felt like she was 100% dedicated to us and we were her most important clients (I have a hunch that all of her clients feel this way). If you want a realtor that is personable and works with an amazing amount of urgency, you will not go wrong with her. Feel free to email me with any questions about our experience with Laurel as our realtor."

"Always “on the ball” – Laurel goes above and beyond in working with the complicated process. ALWAYS kept me completely informed!"
Michelle M.


"Laurel was incredibly helpful and patient when helping me purchase my first home in 2010. My budget wasn’t very high and I had no idea what I wanted or where exactly I wanted to live other than East Valley. We started out looking at wide range of different style homes in a variety of prices within my budget. I still have a binder with the dozens of print outs of the homes we looked at over the course of several month. It is wild to think of all the places we looked at and yet I cannot think of any moment where Laurel was impatient or pushy. She was always up beat and looking out for my best interests.
As we started to figure out my tastes, Laurel kept an eye on other listings that fit most my criteria to see if there was something that could be negotiated. That is how we found the house I came to purchase. Suprisingly it was it was listed below my “minimum price range” in the search and had Laurel not pointed it out, I would have never seen it.
Laurel also did an amazing job keeping in-touch with me throughout the home search, purchasing process and beyond. She had quality people that she recommended for the inspection and for some minor repairs that needed to be done.
All in all, I couldn’t be happier with the service Laurel provided and I can honestly say that it was not just me. Recently my girl friend began looking for her first home. I mentioned to her that she should talk to “my realtor”. She insisted on using the realtor that had been so helpful to her brother a few years prior. Turns out Laurel was her brother’s realtor too"

"Laurel did an amazing job. She was very patient with me and was extremely knowledgeable regarding the current market. Hands down, I would recommend her again to anyone!"
Brook W.


"Laurel was a wonderful agent for us whom I will recommend to anyone.She did well in all categories especially responsiveness. Laurel deserves a 7 out of 5 for responsiveness."
Wellington Y.


"Laurel is one of the hardest workers I have ever met. She was always very responsive, quick to respond with answers and very informative. She was very patient in my home search and I never felt pushed or rushed to purchase a home. She was flexible with her schedule and always had a smile on her face. Through the transaction, she kept me informed of the process and walked me through each step. I could not have purchased my first home without her and I will recommend her any and everyone I know."
Zach


"Laurel made our first time selling a house easy! Her strongest traits are her follow-through and attention to detail. She is super-organized and responds quickly to any email, text, or phone call. She put together information about other houses for sale in our neighborhood, so we could come up with a fair yet competitive listing price. Later, she put a personal touch in staging the house. We got an offer when our house was only on the market for 11 days. We can’t wait to use her again when we are looking for our next move!"
Desiree


"Laurel has been amazing to work with. She helped me purchase my home in 2012 and then sell my home in 2013. She is extremely knowledgeable, always responds to my requests promptly, goes out of her way to help buyer/seller get what they want. I would highly recommend her as an agent."
Sarah S.


"Laurel helped us sell 2 of our homes in Seville. She did a great job with all the details of the sale and really stayed on top of everything. I would recommend her to friends and family."
Gina S.


"With Laurel’s help, I was able to sell my house during a tough real estate market that had a lot of homes listed for sale. She provided me with frequent updates on what homes have sold recently and how many were for sale. This knowledge was helpful when I received my offer. Once I sold the house, she helped me get through the inspection and negotiate for minor repairs. Laurel also helped me sell my old refrigerator. Definitely recommended."
Craig L.


"Laurel is a fantastic Realtor. Buying and selling a home can bring a lot of emotions especially in an up and down market that changes from week to week. She kept us grounded through the ups and downs with her real estate expertise and it paid off in the end."
Lee


"Laurel is so awesome and personable. She makes you feel safe in such a volatile and unpredictable housing market! We have bought and sold a house with Laurel and she walked us through every step of the way with patience and professionalism! She even makes the BEST cookies! ??"
Jodi


"Laurel was an exceptional agent to work with. She went above and beyond to make sure the sale of my home went as smooth as possible. If you are looking for an agent that genuinely cares and takes the time to get to know you and fulfill your needs, Laurel (Nielson) Jonas is the agent for you."
