Laurie Howell at HomeTowne Realty Client Reviews

Read what home buyers and sellers are saying about Laurie Howell at HomeTowne Realty.


Laura is the consummate professional. Extremely knowledgeable, always prepared and gets results.

- Ed Gehrke - Raleigh, NC

I was fortunate to stumble upon Laurie when I was looking to purchase my first house last year. From the get-go she was an incredible ally, and she made the process (which can be pretty daunting when you've never done it before) seamless from start to finish. Laurie is super knowledgeable about the real estate market as well as the laws/processes that the common home buyer knows nothing about. Most importantly she is a genuinely good person and a true pleasure to work with.

Mrs Howell is hands down the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. I spent more than 20 years in the military have moved many times and had the pleasure of work with my fair share of agents. None come close to her attention to detail, concern for her clients and willingness to do what it takes to get a deal done and make it work for her clients. Mrs Howell is my agent for my next home purchase and if I decided to purchase again in the future she will be my agent then as well!!!

This will be my first home purchase and I am beyond excited. There have been a few bumps in the road but, Laurie has been right there beside me and kept me motivated that things will workout. Since day one she was the first Realtor to contact me and keep me informed of everything that I need to do. Whatever she tells me to do I have done. She is very knowledgeable and keeps me up to date on our progress. She is truly a blessing!!!!

Laurie was amazing! We were in a bit of a rush to find a home and she made time for showings several days in a row in the evenings to fit our schedule. Tremendous knowledge of Clayton area and all things real estate. She knows everything about the area, neighborhoods, and builders. Went to battle for us when there was trouble with the lender and has great contacts in construction and real estate. Hopefully I never move again but if I ever do in the area, my first contact will be Laurie!

             We had the good fortune and pleasure of having Laurie Howell as our Real Estate Agent when we purchasing our home in Clayton, NC in October of 2015.  This was the second time we had bought a home.  Laurie was so responsive to all of our needs, right from our first e-mail.  She listened to our priorities and showed us only properties that matched both our lifestyle and our budget.  Her attention to detail was outstanding and her responsiveness to phone calls and e-mails was always quick and above all professional without being stiff.  Her knowledge of local resources was also a definite asset to our home buying process.  We would highly recommend Laurie as a Realtor, as she truly did always have our needs as her main focus.

Laurie Howell recently helped me move in to my absolute dream house. I’ve bought several houses over the years, but not only is this my favorite house, Laurie has become my favorite realtor! She was so professional and efficient. She went above and beyond in making sure every part of the buying process went as smoothly as possible. She was available by phone or email at a moments notice. She answered every question I had and made this the smoothest house purchase I’ve ever experienced. I hope to never buy another home because I’m so happy here, but I will always be happy to recommend Laurie to anyone else who is still trying to find their dream home!

"Laurie Howell is simply the best. From the very first showing to our closing date and beyond she was right by our side answering every question, working with other agents, and helping us through the legalities of our new home purchase. Laurie went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable during the entire process. She has a wealth of knowledge about the local area, and is an extremely experienced leader in the real estate field. Also, as an added bonus, she's extremely talented with interior design, and really helped us imagine the potential of each home we saw. We enjoyed all the time we got to spend with Laurie (we saw a LOT of homes) because of her positive attitude, professionalism, and personable manner. If you're looking for a Realtor that will exceed all expectations and make buy (or selling) an enjoyable experience give Laurie a call!"

Laurie was referred to me by an attorney I've been working with and respect greatly, to sell my mom's house in Cary.  I live out of state, so Laurie had to handle many tasks on my behalf and truly be the face of the transaction.  She performed absolutely flawlessly.  Multiple offers day 1.  Closing within 1 month.  Excellent communication every step of the way.  Excellent service on all the details.  Perfect interaction with the attorney.  Great, helpful attitude and willing to accommodate issues.  Provided me complete confidence that things were being done right.  Experience couldn't have been better!

 I wanted to say how thankful I am of all the work you did to help us. I know I was a tough client at time (first time buyer fears), but I didn't realize how fragile the deal was and how much you had done! Besides time, you made the process easy and simple to understand. We will most definitely be using you again and suggesting your name to others.
